Hello,


Ive been having some pretty bad luck with some day/night dome security cameras. Ive gone though 3 of them with various issues of video cutting out/flickering only in night mode/day mode not displaying a picture. And these cameras were all less than a year old. I bought 2 of them from a company called VideoSecu and the other has no brand name.


Maybe im buying cheap knock offs? They cost me between $40-$70 for 420TVL-600TVL.


Is there a better company with low defect rates? And has a really good warrenty on their products (more than 1 year?)


thanks,

Austin

Well just for reference the security cameras I install (ptz, outdoor, heated, very low light) run around $2000 - not that you need cameras like these.


I think it's likely a case of "you get what you pay for".

The camera market is pretty saturated now with cheap products. I've read reviews of $100+ systems with bad video quality. Personally I would suggest upping your budget to the $200+ systems if you want decent camera quality.


Try looking on amazon, there's usually some good prices there. Recently I read some reviews on Logitec cameras that goes for around $200. But they have more box cameras available, not many dome ones.


Hope this helps
