Hikvision USA Refuses [Now In], Dahua USA Drives Forward With "Coronavirus Cameras"

By John Honovich, Published Apr 07, 2020, 09:18am EDT

Both have been federally banned, both sanctioned for human rights abuses but only one - Dahua - is taking aim at the booming "coronavirus cameras" market in the USA.

Is Dahua bold or self-destructive? Will Dahua finally overtake Hikvision in the USA?

Inside this note, we contrast the two manufacturer's approaches, why they are taking the approaches they are and the risk/opportunity for Dahua.

UPDATE: April 13th, Hikvision USA is now in the fever screening solutions business, renaming it to temperature screening, hoping to avoid FDA crackdown.
