IP Camera Licensing - The Idiot Tax

IP Camera Licensing - The Idiot Tax | Dixon Security UT

Lately, I have picked up a lot of new customers that were frustrated because they were being charged "Licensing Fees" for their security cameras by their previous companies. (They had since fired the old company and found us to replace them.) Why would someone want to pay a licensing fee year after year when they can accomplish the same thing for free? The truth is that many people don't. They just don't know that other options exist.

Licensing fees haven't been around forever. They came about when IP cameras started to grow in popularity. Since IP cameras didn't require as much hardware, many companies wanted to develop software platforms for managing the cameras without selling the hardware. Many large corporations and government facilities would be able to use existing servers and hardware of their own by pulling the camera feeds and dumping the data to a storage device. The software companies wanted to make money per camera to help with the cost of development, tech support, etc. So, instead of allowing people to install the software and use it with an unlimited number of cameras on a raid storage or large server, they started charging licensing fees per camera. One of the most common software platforms like this on the market is the Milestone software. These fees can easily range from $100 to $200 per camera, and can vary from an annual fee per camera, to a one-time lifetime licensing fee.

If you want to avoid this type of expense, there are alternatives that work for most businesses. Many larger NVR units with software are available on today's market. We carry manufacturers like Hikvision, Dahua, and TVT who make decent units at great prices. These Linux based NVR units have come a long way in the last 10 years and become much more user friendly with their software. There is free enterprise software included as well for customers that want to connect to multiple recorders at once. Many of the 32 channel and 64 channel recorders can hold up to 64TB of storage which is plenty for most businesses. By using four Hikvision 32 channel NVR units for a client when they were quoted a solution with Milestone Software, I saved one company over $20,000 in licensing fees alone and over $35,000 with my solution that recorded all 120 of their Axis cameras without licensing fees. If you are currently stuck in a situation where you are paying for Licensing Fees, contact us so we can help you start saving money on your security system.

4K Security Cameras Beware

Things To Look Out For With 4K Security Cameras | Dixon Security

There is a new buzz word in the camera industry and it is being used more and more by unscrupulous manufacturers that want to prey on people that don't have a great grasp of camera technology. Buzz words have been the way to sell electronics for twenty years now. With computers, we have RAM, Hard Drive, Processor, and even graphics card. The camera industry usually picks up some of the same buzz words that pop up with the computers and the televisions. I have noticed a lot of 4K cameras being sold in big box retail and the online marketplace in some of the cheap online kits. Have you ever heard the phrase "Too Good to be True?" Most of these are not real 4K cameras. Some have certain specs that allow them to put that kind of a label, but they use cheap chipsets and lenses to save costs so that the picture quality isn't that great. There was a big problem with this same sort of thing when the cameras were first going to High Definition or HD. Real 4K or 8MP Cameras are available from legitimate manufacturers in a price range from about $250 to $600 depending on the features. I have some great 8MP VF Bullet cameras for $325 that some of our clients have started putting in for license plate areas.

If you want to be sure that a camera is actually the quality it claims, stop by our shop and we will show you different camera resolutions side by side so you will know what you are buying. It is hard to be sure if your eye is not trained to see the difference. The difference in quality, can be the difference between having the license plate or a fuzzy image that won't help.

The standard right now for new installations in the camera industry is 4MP Cameras. If someone doesn't specify that they want to go cheaper or more expensive, I will usually quote out 4MP. A 4 MP camera has a great HD picture. If you take an 8MP Camera and look at it side by side with a 4MP however, the difference is striking. Remember that when you buy electronics, buy from a trusted source and you don't have to guess if you are really buying what is advertised. Read testimonials and customer reviews of security cameras to make sure you are getting the best product.  Service after the sale is also a must with electronics. If you try to buy electronics for too cheap, there will be little to zero tech support on the back end. Be smart, talk with a professional.
