Dahua ADI Partnership Accelerates Race To The Bottom

Author: Brian Karas, Published on Apr 20, 2016

After years of fearing to compete with their OEMs like FLIR and Honeywell, Dahua has opened up their direct branded sales.

Dahua has partnered with ADI, adding their products to ADI's offerings, along with FLIR, Honeywell, Hikvision, W-Box, etc.

In this note, we examine this move, including how it will impact the market and incumbent competitors.
