Seen a camera online for cheap? Thinking about buying it? Well it seems harmless enough, but what if you run into installation, compatibility, or support issues?
I ran across a post on IPVideoMarket.Info that reveals an emerging trend of online camera purchases, and digs deep into the long-run issues (read the comments). Sure, if you need one camera for simple home surveillance then online buying may be logical. But what if you need 24 cameras for multi-site recording at high-resolution? Unless you change your own motor oil, do your own plumbing, cut your own hair, and sew your own clothes, why not leave security configuration to the pros?
Online purchases tend to be cheaper and offer a wide selection, but how many people know if they are choosing the right camera for their deployment? Get in on the conversation, leave a comment.
