Hi everyone! Not sure if this is the right subforum, still a newbie Also a newbie in the security business and I need some advice on IVA and VMS . I have been testing a few VMS software and some are pretty decent and some are just meh. For IVA, I personally like BriefCam since its search functions as a whole is quite impressive, but if I were to add additional functions, such as video analytics, to VMS, the total cost would double. For example, if I use Nx plus BriefCam, the cost of IVA is much higher than VMS, and most small business owners probably can't afford the total cost. I'm wondering if there is any way to reduce the cost of the IVA 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 think that I'll be able to convince my client to spend $300 on a single camera just for analytics and personally I don't think it's worth it too.
