Favorite Surveillance Monitors Statistics

By: IPVM Team, Published on Nov 29, 2017

What monitors are most commonly used for video surveillance? Are they more typically consumer or professional? Are there specific brands that dominate? And how important is the surveillance monitor selection process?

IPVM has answers on all these, based on survey results from 140+ integrators around the world.

"We use Samsung commercial monitors. Great product, few failures, and through our Hanwha relationship we have good pricing."

I'm curious how a Hanwha relationship leads to good pricing for Samsung monitors? Was there a division of Samsung security monitors that went over to Hanwha that still carry the Samsung name?

Hanwha Techwin still has professional monitors in their lineup.  They are still Samsung branded.  I believe most are Hanwha Techwin models which previously were Samsung Techwin models.  There are new 4k models.  All have the same 3 year warranty.

AG Neovo for the win!
