I don't believe we have tested the DS-2CD2732F-I.
Instead of specific models. What are you looking for? 2MP outdoor dome? With IR? Anything else?

I believe Secubest would have an alternative, but comparable camera with equal quality but for less.
Just remember that any third party camera will not have the pixel based motion detection like the avigilon cameras, so the pixel searching becomes ineffective
If that is ok, then i know that hikvision cameras and sony minidome cameras that work with motion in ACC that are cost effective.
everything else is generally almost the same price as the avigilon domes, but i am in australia so everything is expensive here...
if you just want overviews, why not go for the new minidomes?

if you are after a mini dome, you can take a look at our new FULL HD VB-S30D, VB-S31D or VB-S800D - most of these hitting the market in the coming weeks. Won't be your cheapest option, but you'll be very impressed with the picture quality and colour accuracy. The 30 and 31 models are the smallest in their class. You will also find that all these models have strong low light performance, so worth taking a look.
To reiterate, any recommendation must come with (1) first hand verification of ONVIF working fully with the recommended camera OR the camera listed on Avigilon's direct integration list plus (2) the price of the camera.
Otherwise, you can recommend anything and everything regardless of whether there is a fit.
I am also curious about the HikVision DS-2CD2732F-I dome. If anybody has any first hand knowledge of its performance, I would be very interested. I'm looking for a $200-$400 outdoor dome with IR that can handle the Maine winters. The DS-2CD2732F-I's spec sheet has pretty much everything on my laundry list, including IP66, IK10, and operating temps of -22°F - 140°F. The -22°F would just barely do the trick, but I'm a little skeptical of how this camera manages that low temp, since it appears to lack a heater due to the max 5.5W power spec.
