The typical IPVM integrator may not be attracted to Q-See's dealer program, as the brand is too directly available to consumers.

Do they offer only Q-See labeled product to dealers?

Are you talking about OEM'ing their OEM'd product?

Yes, I believe it's often referred to as "peel twice" product ;)
