FLIR / Lorex and Hanwha / Samsung Groundbreaking Low Kit Pricing

Author: John Honovich, Published on Jun 06, 2016

Less than 3 years ago, the big news in low cost kits was a $699 Q-See package including (4) 720p cameras and a 1TB NVR. At that time, it really was amazing, considering what prices had been through 2012 / 2013.

But now, FLIR / Lorex and Hanwha / Samsung are blowing those offers away, with triple the number of cameras at the same price.

In this note, we examine the offers and how they are going to impact the professional / commercial market.
