VMS Camera Management Shootout - Avigilon, Dahua, Exacq, Genetec, Hanwha, Hikvision, Milestone, Network Optix

By: Sean Patton, Published on Oct 29, 2018

Camera setup, configuration and maintenance are the most common tasks when managing a surveillance system.

Who does it best and worst? Who offers the most features and capabilities and who the least?

We tested 8 manufacturers - Avigilon, Dahua, Exacq, Genetec, Hanwha, Hikvision, Milestone, and Network Optix to find out:

In this test we scored VMSes based on 9 criteria, grading them bad, average and good:

Inside, we detail the full results including who won and lost and how the systems performed across each of the 9 categories, including 7 video screencasts, one for each manufacturer in the shootout.
