Dahua Finally Has A US Distributor

Author: John Honovich, Published on Oct 08, 2015

Finally.

Billion dollar Dahua is the 'smaller' of the two mega Chinese surveillance manufacturers (the other being Hikvision).

Historically, Dahua has made it very hard to buy from them in the US, unfortunately pushing people to buy from random sources inside China, without any guarantee whether the product was legitimate or even working. Forget about support or warranty.

This year, Dahua has ramped up US operations, hiring local factory staff and now, at least, one US distributor.

In this note, we look at the distributor, what the offerings are and how this impacts market positioning.
