Best Alternatives to Banned Dahua and Hikvision

Author: IPVM Team, Published on Oct 17, 2018

With the US government ban and a growing number of users banning Dahua and Hikvision, one key question is what to use for low cost? While Dahua and Hikvision were low on technology innovation, they charged substantially lower prices for many core video surveillance features than Western and Japanese incumbents.

IPVM has previously looked at alternatives for HIK, but for those looking for lower prices, where do they turn? 165 integrators told IPVM, answering:

For low cost, what manufacturer, if any, is the best alternative to Dahua and Hikvision? Why?

Inside this note, we:

  • Look at the top three options
  • Look at respondent feedback
