Surveillance End User Spending Outlook 2015

By: John Honovich, Published on Dec 30, 2014

IPVM surveyed 75 end user members asking about their plans for spending on surveillance systems in 2015. The open ended question asked was:

"In 2015, how will your budget / resources / funding for video surveillance changed compared to 2014? More? Less? Same? Why?"

Inside, we share results and color commentary from these end users.
