The first part of your comment makes sense and agrees with what Intelbras told us, that they are very focused on making sure their branded products are suitable to the needs of domestic customers within Brazil.
With regard to the second part, do you mean that Intelbras does not do any quality control in China? When IPVM spoke with the company, they were very eager to highlight that a key part of their operations in the PRC is focused on quality control.
Intelbras does their own Q/C. If OS changes are required they tell Dahua what they want to enable and why and Dahua will perform these changes. Intelbras will then validate these changes at their facility. Intelbras has their own relationships in the eco system and does not rely on Dahua for this. Their primary comp in Brazil is Hikvision and they have done a very good job in that regard.
Update: An earlier version of this article stated that "more than 85%" of Intelbras's 3,500 employees are based in Brazil. IPVM has heard from Trama Comuninição, Intelbras's PR firm, which has confirmed that 98.5% percent of Intelbras's 3,500 employees are based in Brazil. The post has been updated to reflect this.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read the post as well as for your comment. Learning about Intelbras's history and the depth of its penetration within the Brazilian market was certainly interesting for John and me and I definitely look forward to covering them again in the near future!
