What Manufacturers Offer Online Demo Access To Their Cameras?

Do any allow anonymous access to their entire line as a matter of course?

That's a good question. It would be worth making a list.

To the best of my knowledge, most of the big brands do not have this, or at least they do not publicize it.

I had no idea, very interesting. On my Mac Safari and Chrome, video won't stream though...

I think they only stream using MJPEG, the H.264 plugin doesn't work for me either.

When you install Dahua's gDMSS/iDMSS mobile app, it comes pre-configured with a demo NVR, I assume at some Dahua office somewhere. (Of course, right now when I want to do a screenshot, my gDMSS app isn't loading ANY of the sites I have configured...)

I once googled the model number of an IQEye camera (looking for information on it), as it displays in the camera's web interface... and got dozens of hits of active, unsecured cameras from around the world... kind of unofficial demo? ;)

Now I know how my settings got changed!

Video Insight does, demovi.com Although they don't manufacture their own cameras. Panasonic and Hikvision rebrand.

They've had that site running (with intermittent upgrades) since I first started installing VI DVRs, probably more than 10 years ago now. Pretty nice.

We have a site in Montana we provide credentials to known dealers. It has a variety of cameras, but certainly not all.


If you download Exacq VMS software it has huge selection of cameras to choose from. I have used it a couple of times for clients.

Here is the Exacq VMS Online.

Avigilon has a demo NVR that streams from several locations. It's not an all-encompassing selection of their cameras, but it gives you a good idea of the capabilities.

They also have one to demo the mobile application.

do you have the link and credentials for it?

Ask and ye shall receive, John :)
