Empire Security just sent out an email that they have them for $143 each, $132 if you buy more 4+. They also have a $20 off coupon as well, SAVE20 is the coupon code. Their site doesn't show any real prices until you register and give it a few minutes to update.

Nice deal! Much better price then eBay too. Been meaning to try one of those cameras.

I have 2 of the HDB3200C, they work well. I am getting my HVAC installed at the house I am building and was looking for a cheap solution today to make sure it doesn't walk off. I don't think I can get much cheaper than $143 each, then throw on the $20 it is a no brainer.

If I pick up 2 of them, I would have 4 Axis and 4 Dahua total. BlueIris better play nice Rolling Eyes

Not to mention, Foscam is just a little cheaper than these, and not even close in quality.

Not sure if I want to do the HDW2100 or HFW2100. Both are the same price.

The NVRs are at a good price as well. I think there were some issues with them working with Axis, will have to look at the review again.

ACTi has some new cameras out that are very well priced. I will have to do some research on them as well.

Which models? I know buellwinkle speaks highly of ACTi, might be worth a try.

I tried an Arecont megapixel dome camera and it was horrible, so I'm reluctant to venture outside of Axis.

I think it was the D and E series domes and bullets. Some were in the $250-400 range. Most of the lower end didn't have WDR and variable lenses.

Every time I buy a new camera I am torn between several models. This time is no different.

Speaking of buellwinkle, haven't seen him around lately.

I will, it has been raining, cold and windy the last few days. I will try to get them installed by the weekend and will upload some pics.

In this snapshot, the cameras are as follows

Axis M3114-VE | Dahua HFW2100 | Axis M3114-VE
Axis M3114-VE | Axis M3114-VE | Dahua HDB3200
Dahua HDB3200



Not bad quality overall on the little bullet. Especially when you consider the price.

I feel like Johnny now Wink
