Decent IVA or powerful VMS options? Need your recommendations!
I have a question for the experienced integrators here.
I work in the security business, and recently I’m testing a few VMS software from the market.
Some of them are very professional and some are just good to have, but nothing special.
For IVA, I personally like BriefCam since the search function by conditions is incomparable.
But I also noticed that if the user wants to add more video analytics functions to VMS, the total cost will be double or more.
For example, if I use Nx plus BriefCam, the cost of IVA is much higher than VMS, and the final cost will be hard to accept by some regular business owners (I mean not big corporations).
I wonder if there is any way to reduce the cost of the IVA like BriefCam besides buying a lot of licenses at one time to get discounts.
Or is there any replacement for BriefCam (similar functions are fine)? I just don’t want to spend $300 on a single camera just for analytics, and I believe neither does my client.
