Dahua OEM Directory

Author: Ethan Ace, Published on Apr 11, 2017

Dahua OEMs for dozens of companies, including some of the biggest names in security, including Tyco, Panasonic, and Honeywell. The following directory includes 50+ companies that OEM some products from Dahua, with a graphic and links to company websites below. It does not cover all Dahua OEMs as most hide the association.

Links to each provider:

Typically, these partners take Dahua product and substitute their branding, along side their own internally developed product, or in some cases, other OEMs, making it sometimes difficult to determine what is and is not OEM. More confusing, many companies change OEMs from time to time.

Note: there are certainly far more Dahua OEMs than this list as our information sources are primarily North American based and even within North America, surely there are some others not yet listed. Email us at info@ipvm.com or leave a comment with more suggestions.

Beware The Backdoor

A major vulnerability has been found in Dahua cameras, allowing unauthorized admin access, very likely impacting all the OEMs on this list, as well. See our report Dahua Backdoor Uncovered for more details. OEMs FLIR and Honeywell have already responded with their plans to address this issue.

Those using cameras from this OEM list should be sure to check for this vulnerability and seek new firmware from their OEM immediately.

How To Tell

There are a few techniques to help verify whether a provider is a Dahua OEM:

Shipping Records

Shipping records often show that a company OEMs from Dahua. For example, Lorex took 160 shipments in the past year, shown in the excerpt below. See our report Dahua US Imports - Here Is Their #1 Customer By Far for more on this topic.

Configuration Utilities

Most Dahua OEM models will be discovered by their configuration utilities, such as this Speco model:

Additionally, VMSes may discover and connect to the camera as Dahua, as well, such as the same Speco model shown here connected to Exacq via the Dahua driver.

Web Interface Similarities

OEMs typically make only limited changes to the Dahua web interface, such as a logo or color scheme. For example, in the video below we review the Honeywell HQA DVR interface (a Dahua OEM unit) with a Dahua branded model, nearly identical aside from color scheme.
