I’m not well-versed in IP Camera systems; am wondering if anyone here might have advice. I’ve got 2 options from the company we’re working with for cameras; it’ll be managed by the company that’s–surprisingly–very responsive and very good about handling things so I don’t have to do anything more than provide rack space & a static IP.
I’m looking to choose between Digital Watchdog or Avigilon. I’ve looked thru their websites & they both look…great? Just wondering if there are pluses/minuses I should be aware of before pulling the trigger on one or the other. Each system will arrive with a Ubiquiti PoE switch, required licensing & such. Both come with 16 licenses which is what we’re looking to expand to.
The Avigilon system is about $2,000 more expensive than the Watchdog system…so I’m wondering if those more well-versed in camera systems would be able to tell me what to look out for with each system. I will NOT need to administrate it, so if one system is “easier to use” than the other, that would be appealing to me as our employees here are not…well, “young” and they require a bit of extra training from me that I’m happy to do, but if a system is “easier” to learn and teach I would likely lean toward that one.
Thank you for any help with this!
