What's Next for Ubiquiti Surveillance?

Author: Ethan Ace, Published on Nov 18, 2012

Last year, Ubiquiti hit the surveillance market hard with a line of $100 HD cameras that generated a ton of interest. However, over the last 6 months the company has been besieged with counterfeiting issues and a dramatically falling stock price. While the company planned for a next generation PRO surveillance offering in 2012, it is not yet available. In this note, we examine what is upcoming for Ubiquiti and how it might impact their positioning in the surveillance market.
