Fluidmesh Wireless Overview

Author: Ethan Ace, Published on Nov 13, 2011

In the surveillance industry, Fluidmesh, along with Firetide and Ubiquiti are the three most commonly mentioned wireless providers. However, the relative positioning of the three are often unclear. This is made even more challenging by the lack of detailed information on Fluidmesh which is generally available. In this update, we dig into Fluidmesh's product line, the features which may appeal to integrators, and how it contrasts with Firetude and Ubiquiti.
