Stores, distributors, manufacturers, the Internet, Chinese spam emails?
Today, there are more options to buy surveillance than ever.
But what are the best and worst places to buy?
IPVM surveyed 100 integrators to learn from their experiences and tabulate the consensus top and bottom picks.
We found a number of clear trends:
- Integrators like buying from manufacturers more than distributors.
- While integrators named dozens of different sources, the distributors that were mentioned the most (across best and worst votes) were ADI, Anixter, ScanSource and Tri-Ed. However, the percentage of best vs worst votes for these 4 varied significantly.
- Online buying remained a distinct minority choice for integrators.
