Average Pricing Calculator Released

Author: John Honovich, Published on Dec 09, 2014

How much should you expect to pay for a 1080p dome or a 3MP outdoor bullet or a camera from Axis?

Figuring out average pricing historically has been tedious and time consuming, forcing you to find, aggregate and tabulate pricing yourself.

Now, IPVM's new average pricing calculator lets you do it instantly for any combination of criteria.

At the bottom of the camera finder, you will now see this option / prompt:

You just click that link and it will return the average for the cameras searched / selected. Here's how it looks for all production cameras in the Finder:

We include both mean and median for cases where a smaller number of higher priced cameras drags the 'average' up (e.g., in surveillance, PTZs do that, because of their much higher average expense than fixed ones).

Note: pricing is almost always pulled from an average of publicly available, online prices list in USD.

Here are a few example of average pricing from the Finder:

You can do any combination of searches and average pricing calculation you desire. These are just a few examples.

Try it out in the Camera Finder now.
