Best Buy, Home Depot and Lowes Drop Dahua Lorex

By IPVM Team, Published Oct 25, 2021, 11:02am EDT (Info+)

Best Buy, Home Depot, and Lowe's dropped Lorex (Dahua) products after IPVM and TechCrunch reached out to the retailers about them selling products from a manufacturer deemed a threat to US national security as well as being sanctioned for human rights abuses.

In this report, we examine the issues involved, share responses from the companies involved including Best Buy, Dahua, and Home Depot as statements from US Representative Claudia Tenney (who co-sponsored the FCC bill that passed the House last week) and US Senator Marco Rubio who called Lorex "just Dahua by another name" amongst their remarks to IPVM.

IPVM is co-reporting this story with TechCrunch, see the TechCrunch article: US retail giants pull Chinese surveillance tech from shelves
