Vector18, do you have a contact at Dahua to help you with firmware bugs. I'm trying to get an ONVIF snapshot that works on most Dahua models to work on the PTZ and not having much luck.

Hows their support? Is it a small retail store? Mop & Pop operation? Online only?

 

I want to know as much as possible if you dont mind. Some sellers will only support you if you buy enough volume to make things worth it for them.... You buy a lot?

 

Do they have a thorough product knowledge? Learn as they go? Or make things up as they go along (SOME BIG COMPANIES DO THIS. )

They are 15 minutes from my house and I buy all of my dahua products from them.

It's a small store and they're all Asian. They all know the products inside and out and have actually taught me alot. They offer free team viewer support on installs, and as much help as possible over the phone no matter how much you buy. They were the same amount of friendly towards me when I first started going there and now. I just don't know what it would be like for Internet orders?

If you are doing so many installs, why not deal with a Dahua distributor? The prices will likely be better but you never know.

 

They are a Dahua distributor. 90 percent of their products are Dahua and they have direct contact with Dahua.

Looking at networkcameracritics recent review on hikvisions 3mp cam at about 150 bucks...

I've tested the Axxon Next Free software and it's quite interesting even if the GUI philosophy isn't like the other software I tested.

 

The free version limit is :

16 IP Cam

1 Server

1To archive limit.

 

To those who are interested :

The unlock version for one server to cost about 230€. (Unlimited archives and max. 16 Cam)

Adding one more camera cost about 80€

I'm definitely interested... I especially like (the idea of) being able to filter the recorded data for your results.

 

I'll be trying this. I hope it's easier to work with than Geovision I really liked the *idea* of that......supporting it (gv) - nope.
