What Makes Hikvision Unique
There are many factors that make Hikvision unique such as company size, commitment to R&D, focus on the requirements of the customer, modernized factory, market position, product quality, and innovation, but there are several other areas that truly differentiate Hikvision.
Hikvision is a true commercial grade manufacturer so they make high end solutions designed for business use both indoor and outdoor, as well as for viewing in bright light or limited light. Hikvision is truly a commercial manufacturer making products that are designed to be used in schools, banks, hospitals, doctor’s offices, warehouses, retail stores, stadiums, auto dealers, jewelry stores, and so on.
In addition to manufacturing cameras, Hikvision also makes DVR and NVR boxes but what makes these products powerful and useful is the functionality they provide when combined with video management and analytic software which among other things allows you to categorize or review video. What makes Hikvision unique in this area is they do not charge for this software nor do they charge a per license fee for the software so users only need to pay for the hardware. This makes it much easier for VARs to work within their clients budgets and to easily outline the investment without having the added complexity of additional licensing fees or software costs.
Hikvision has an extensive in country support team here in the US to help customers with the sales process, provide technical support for both pre as well as post sales, assist with design of the video surveillance solution, offer marketing materials, training and more.
