    Finally back...

    If i didn't reply you in October and you are an installers/dealers/IT professionals or related industries and are still interested, shoot me another PM...my inbox is jammed and I probably won't reply to any older PMs (I do better with managing PMs than keeping track of the thread but i'll try to stay up to date on here too) and probably slow to no replies on nights and weekends.

    Thank you!

    Edit:I came back!

    I can personally vouch for Milkisbad. Great customer service, pricing, and warranty! At his prices it doesn't pay to go the china route. I live in NJ and got my NVR next day via ups.

    Hi!
    I need a quotation for hikvision ds-2cd2432f-iw 3mp ir cube with 2.8mm lens (for indoor).
    Other alternatives are:
    - IPS Ki-EL (http://www.ipsmart.cc/)
    - Apexis APM-HP803-MPC-WP (http://www.apexis.cc/)
    - EyeSight ES-IP909IW (http://www.estcctv.com/)
    - SysVideo SC5513 (http://www.sysvideo.cn/)

    Do You have an advice?
    The only missing feature from the Hikvision is the pan & tilt functionality.
    Thank you!

    PS. Missed to say I am located in Italy

    For home security and nanny monitor... but I heard Foscam are not so reliable and I know they do not have an alarm GPIO and PIR.

    That's the problem with OEM versions of Hikvision, they have limited camera models. Try WrightwoodSurveillance, they are out of the 2432 at the moment because of their recent move but get shipments every week but that's a popular seller. They come in 2.8mm and 4mm lens sizes.

    I can attest that on some items when on special the price is pretty close. he ships same day and you get a 3 year warranty...so there are benefits of buying local. It really depends on the price difference, how much time you have to wait and how much of a gambler you are. I have had success with China and milkisbad.

    Hello. I'm interested in some DS-2CD3332-I cams. Just wanted to check if you have any available stock, what lenses, and of course pricing. Thanks for your time.

    No problem Barb!

    Caught some fishes with my front camera...so weird, all these years nothing really happen, two weeks after I put in my camera it catches something. One of the kids look like he can't even reach the stop sign. the time is off cause I'm using a Dahua NVR and the time just keeps resetting :(

    Thanks Fenderman~

    Good news, they replaced the stop sign! they even made it taller to prevent future graffiti...I feel like my camera and pictures helped.

    Just wanted to thank Milkisbad. Purchased two CMIP3032 and couldn't be happier not just with product but service. Not to mention price is about equal as buying form China. Let me know when you start selling the 2432 as I'm interested in a couple more. Thank you much!

    It's the reason Writghwood turned down being an OEM for Hikvision when offered and also stopped carrying an OEM version (Derytech) that did not turn out well. It's the camera and lens limitations and that they are starting to get more aggressive in distinguishing themselves from their OEM line with different look on some models and future firmware will likely be different and not compatible.

    Could you send me pricing list please? I am looking for 24 cameras, 2MP Dome IP IR POE, 3 of them outdoor rated. What NVRs are available for recording at 2MP 23+ cameras?

    Not swaying you from LTS brand if that's what you want, but if you want true Hikvision USA, the 32 channel NVR, will work for you, the DS-9632NI-ST. I can get you pricing if you want, but figure about $1,599 shipped including sales tax for the NVR and honestly, not going to find it much cheaper in China with no warranty. You'll also need a 24 port PoE switch, would recommend a ZyXel GS1900-24HP, would have to research pricing, but figure $400-500 for the GS2200-24HP if you want a managed switch in the $600-700 range. Also, you'll need hard drives, 1,2,3,4TB drives available just about anywhere, would recommend the WD Purple Series, priced well, design specifically for NVR use.

    Cameras are cheap, depends if you want their low end with 2-axis design (has to be mounted facing down, not on a wall), or a 3-axis camera that is more flexible but also more expensive. Figure about $150-200 each depending on features.

    No, rotate turns an image 90 degrees. What happens if you wall mount a 2-axis dome, it works fine if it's pointed straight ahead and tilted up/down. The minute you try and pan the lens, because it only pans by rotating the base, the image rotates with it. One reason I don't recommend the ds-2cd2132-i because many people want to wall mount or mount it on a slant ceiling and the only way is to use the wall mounts which to me are not a pretty solution.

    Did you mean you don't recommend the ds-2cd2132-i (the 2-axis dome)? The 2032 is the bullet...

    Yes, the ds-2cd2132-i is the one I don't recommend unless you understand the limitations of any 2-axis domes. Forces you to mount on ceilings which in some houses, offices, warehouses could be 9-10' high or higher indoors as the OP wants to use them and if you want say an eyeball height view, you can't just easily surface mount it on a wall.
