    Im looking at bidding a 24 camera system. I like the LOREX pricing and feature set. SO, Lorex vs Hikvision. Go!

    Lorex is the STRIPPED DOWN and rebranded version of Dahua. Dahua and Hikvision would be the comparables. Lorex would be like a scooter. Hikvision would be like a luxury motorcycle when it comes to feature sets. Both Dahua and Hikvision white box cameras that are sub-sold by other branding companies. Often the better features are removed.

    Welcome Jim,

    Do check out the notes members have assembled here:
    IPCamTalk WiKi | IP Cam Talk

    In particular I would recommend starting with the cliff notes.

    Determine what your needs are first before jumping on a product or solution.

    As trucams points out - if you want some better features you'll need to look closely at the various brands and see if aspects from the OEM versions have been removed. ( example Dahua's IVS features are not supported by the Lorex branded products )
