Build an IP System - Select Your H-Series Cameras

01 Select Your Brand

The first step in building your surveillance system is to pick your brand. This will help us narrow down your products considerably. Read below to learn more about each brand. Then, when you're ready, go ahead and make your selection.


H-Series is where it all began. It's our largest and longest running product line that has stood the test of time. These cameras are great options for just about anyone, whether you're a complete beginner or a surveillance pro. They're powerful cameras with plenty of features, but they're still approachable and easy to manage.

We recommend these products for most installation types, including residential installations, small business installations, and some large corporate installations.


We added R-Series to our catalog toward the beginning of 2019, and it was an instant hit with many of our customers. These cameras quickly became some of our best sellers. We brought R-Series on as our beginner and budget-friendly option. These products aredesigned to be simple and cost-effective while maintaining all the basic features that most people will need.

We recommend these cameras primarily for residential installs, although they will also work for certain small business installations, as long as you don't exceed 32 cameras.


We took on Uniview products at the beginning of 2020. These are still new products both to us and our customers, but we've been learning a lot about them. Every week I feel like we learn something new about these cameras, which should tell you a lot about this product line. Our Uniview products are our most feature-packed cameras and recorders. We brought this brand into our warehouse with the power user in mind. If you're someone who really likes to tinker with their security products, if you want the most flexibility and control possible, then Uniview is definitely worth a look.

These products are great for large corporate and enterprise installations. But that's not to say you can't use these on small business or residential applications. You absolutely can. Just keep in mind that some of their features are more geared toward larger businesses.
