Cernium to Sell Home IP Video on Amazon.comBy: John Honovich, Published on Nov 21, 2009
Cernium announced [link no longer available] that their home IP video product, Archerfish Quattrro [link no longer available] is now available for sale at Amazon.com.
For $1,699, the kit includes 2 cameras and a smart DVR appliance.
While on-line distribution is an increasing trend, the sheer price point of this product will be a major barrier. Compared to the top selling Security & Surveillance products on Amazon, the Archerfish Quattro is 5 to 10 times more expensive. Though Archerfish provides some advances not available on the other systems, it will be hard for most users to justify that price premium.
A potential better fit from Cernium is their Nov 2009 announced Archerfish Solo which is a smart camera with built-in storage that will likely cost significantly less than the Quattrro. See our overview of the Archerfish Solo.
