By: John Honovich, Published on Feb 13, 2020

Bosch has confirmed to IPVM that it is in the process of dropping Dahua, over the next year, as both IP camera contract manufacturer and recorder ODM / OEM.

Inside this note, we share feedback from Bosch, examine the driving forces (specifically US government ban / NDAA) and how this impacts both Dahua and Bosch going forward.

For background, see Bosch 3000i Cameras Tested and Bosch Divar NVR Tested vs Dahua.
