The importance of choosing the right security camera:
At Smarttech Security & Automation, we understand the importance of finding a security system that you can trust. We recognize that every security system has its own unique features and image quality, and we believe in providing our customers with a user-friendly experience. We know that it can be overwhelming to navigate through various options and determine the true video quality without a thorough investigation of the hardware, camera lens, and recorder NVR.
To address this challenge, we are committed to guiding buyers in selecting the right security system for their homes or businesses. In today’s modern security atmosphere, we believe that an ideal security camera experience should be easy to use, highly secure, and equipped with artificial intelligence capabilities and cloud services. It is essential to ensure NDAA compliance to maintain security. However, striking the perfect balance between security and ease of use can often be a daunting task, leaving installers with offerings that fall short of users’ expectations. Whether it’s a poor app experience or hardware quality not matching the specifications, customers are often left disappointed.
To overcome these challenges, Smarttech Security & Automation has made the decision to focus primarily on the installation of Turing.AI cameras. We firmly believe that Turing.AI cameras outperform their competition, including Ring, Hikvision, and Dahua. As a testament to our confidence in these cameras, we offer free Turing.AI product demos for Nassau and Suffolk County residents in New York. During these demos, we provide hands-on reviews of the user app experience and camera quality.

What is NDAA compliance? Why are Dahua and Hikvision non compliant?
Now, let’s address NDAA compliance and the reasons why Dahua and Hikvision are non-compliant. Dahua and Hikvision, as leading Chinese manufacturers, dominate the global market for business-grade security cameras. While their popularity is undeniable, it’s important to note that they do not meet the requirements of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) compliance. For businesses involved in the installation of security cameras in government buildings or working with government-funded entities, NDAA compliance is a mandatory requirement for projects. However, this compliance is not currently mandatory for residential properties or private businesses (as of 2023).
Hikvision And Dahua: Not as secure or affordable as they may seem
Using non-NDAA-compliant security cameras from Dahua and Hikvision poses certain risks. These cameras often have known security vulnerabilities that can be exploited by hackers, allowing unauthorized access to the camera’s feed from anywhere. Additionally, the high silicon chipsets used in these cameras, which are prohibited by section 889 of the NDAA, have a history of cybersecurity issues and the potential for backdoor accessibility, making them attractive targets for hackers. Consequently, choosing non-NDAA-compliant cameras may result in the need for earlier replacements and additional costs in the long run.
Ring Cameras: Misleading customers about security affordability and installation labor
Moving on to Ring cameras, these devices are frequently discussed when considering new security camera options. Marketed as wireless and affordable, Ring cameras may seem like an appealing choice. However, there are several important factors to consider before making a decision. While they are priced attractively, ranging from $150 to $250, their wireless nature makes them vulnerable to hacking or interference from neighboring signals, which can negatively impact their functionality. Moreover, wireless cameras consume significant network bandwidth, potentially causing a decline in internet speed and overall user experience. The hidden costs associated with Ring cameras are twofold. Firstly, if you install Ring cameras without investing in a secondary high-speed wireless network, they can significantly degrade your existing wireless network’s performance. Secondly, despite being marketed as wireless, Ring cameras still require a constant power source, either through wired connection or battery charging. Thus, the perceived affordability of Ring cameras can be deceptive, as additional expenses may arise for proper installation and maintenance.
