Axis vs Avigilon vs FLIR vs Hikvision vs Samsung Camera Pricing

Author: Ethan Ace, Published on Feb 03, 2016

The 'race to the bottom' is a big issue, with average prices dropping sharply over the past few years. But who is racing the hardest? And how do manufacturers compare?

To find out, we compared cameras from Avigilon, Axis, FLIR, Hikvision, and Samsung, across seven categories:

  • Entry level dome cameras
  • Entry level bullet cameras
  • Entry level PTZ speeddomes
  • High end box cameras
  • High end outdoor dome cameras
  • High end bullet cameras
  • High end PTZ speeddomes

We used our industry leading Camera Finder, BestMatch and Camera Comparison tools to analyze these results. 

Inside, we break down the results.
