Ligowave Wireless Profile - Ubiquiti Competitor

By: Sean Patton, Published on Aug 27, 2018

Ubiquiti has become the most common choice for wireless in video surveillance (see Favorite Wireless Manufacturers) but not without controversy and debate, as Ubiquiti's no sales reps, no phone support model contradicts industry norms.

[UPDATE December 2019: New reports show product availability and support problems]

In recent IPVM discussions (e.g., Anything Better Than Ubiquiti?), one name that has come up is LigoWave, historically a wireless carrier/service provider who is targeting the video surveillance industry.

In this report, based on discussions with the company, we examine LigoWave's offerings including:

  • Company Overview
  • Limited US Revenue
  • Compared to Ubiquiti
  • Surveillance Focused Products
  • Free Cloud Management
  • Phone Tech Support Available
  • Limited Channel Protection
  • Pricing
  • Looking to Raise Brand Awareness
  • Outlook
