    NXwitness sold in north america by digital watchdog as ipvms can be had for 67 dollars per camera USD via b and h photo...possibly less from other re-sellers. Free lifetime upgrades. what software did they price?

    Did cross my mind, yes. I’m a bit of a noob when it come to BI.

    BI is extremely robust and in the opinion of most on here, the best solution available at the price point. What are your needs? Do you plan on remote viewing all the time? You would need some beefy hardware but it's def doable and a valid option.

    I am running two 64 ch nvr with 65 cameras(LTS) for supermarket...so far so good. cheap cost than running a PC with 50$/cameras.

    cheap cost but way less functionality. There is a reason there is a huge market for vms.

    Nope. Most VMS are used by business. There is a reason they dont want NVR's. I would not recommend a hikvision/lts/dahua NVR to my worst enemy.

    If money not the problem. VMs. But they only want to spend X amount of money for 65 4k Hikvision cameras and recorders
