This kit is so inexpensive we could almost not believe it.
8 HD IR cameras plus an DVR with a 2TB hard drive for $499 total. Here's what it looks like, laid out on our table:
$499 is so incredibly low you can barely buy a single integrated IR camera from Axis or Avigilon for that price. And here we have 8 times the number of cameras plus a recorder and storage thrown in.
New lost cost options are the major trend in video surveillance right now, addressing the top integrator concern in using IP. For instance, recently, we tested Dahua's HD CVI, an emerging offering that aims to solve this.
Now, Q-See, a Dahua OEM, has released this $499 HD CVI based kit that is even less expensive.
We bought the kit (from Costco) [link no longer available] and put it to the test comparing it to HD IP cameras and Dahua (original) HD CVI cameras.
