Author: Brian Karas, Published on Sep 01, 2016

Where most Chinese manufacturers have focused on their camera hardware, one is attempting to be the Avigilon of China.

We spoke with the President of Milesight's US division, Michael Slack, about how he wants to provide the market with a new end-to-end platform that combines features similar to Avigilon with the pricing of Hikvision.
