ADI Secretly Relabels DahuaBy John Honovich and Gurami Jamaspishvili, Published May 05, 2021, 09:13am EDT
ADI has started to secretly relabel Dahua with Huawei chips inside, IPVM has verified. Watch the 90-second video below to learn more:
ADI refused to confirm, alleging "this information is proprietary and competitively sensitive."
This is a new line from ADI, called "Capture", as the ADI webpage screenshot shows:
Dahua abuses human rights and was US government sanctioned in 2019 for such abuses.
And just this year, Dahuas's continued development and offering of "Uyghur warnings" to China police were exposed.
ADI Selling Low Priced Relabels
Despite this, ADI was happy to work with Dahua so they can sell cameras for $49.99.
Proof of Relabelling
ADI's "Capture" Camera, on the left, looks just like a Dahua camera, on the right.
We bought these ADI cameras and a recorder to verify ourselves.
They have the same web UI layout as Dahua.
Their MAC OUI addresses are registered to Dahua.
Indeed, Dahua's own software detects ADI "Capture" cameras as Dahua cameras.
And when we tore down the Dahua made ADI recorder, it revealed a Huawei chip inside:
But ADI is determined to hide this from the public.
ADI is America's largest security distributor, with billions in revenue, part of a publicly-traded company, Resideo, recently spun out of Honeywell.
ADI is putting America's cybersecurity at risk. ADI is supporting human rights abuses. Profits come before ethics at ADI. Be warned.
