40+ Alternatives to Dahua & Hikvision For Video Surveillance Camera Manufacturing

By Ethan Ace, Published Aug 17, 2021, 10:46am EDT (Info+)

As bans against Dahua and Hikvision rise (from Taiwan's ban to the US NDAA ban to an impending FCC ban and a recommended UK ban), people around the world are looking for alternatives and to understand if and how global manufacturers can fill the void.

IPVM Image

IPVM has identified 40+ manufacturers (i.e., companies that develop their own firmware, software, and designs) as alternatives, including 13 from the USA, 8 from the ROC Taiwan, 8 from PRC China, 5 from Europe, 4 from South Korea, 2 from Japan. Inside, we identify each company and overview its positioning.
