As we are living in the world of technology and online shopping is the major element of todays technology.It was time when we need to visit shop to shop,market to market if we wish to buy a product at best and low price,as low price is the weakness of indian customer.But with the rise in technology and internet,we could easily get the whole data of sellers,distributor dealers of most of the products in the reuired location,and even we could easily came to know about the genuine price of the product.
Todays topic is about the purchasing of CCTv Camera products online,as i am also a seller of cctv cameras online on amazon,flipkart,snapdeal,securitykart but if some one genuinely ask me to be a buyer and should i buy these products online then my answer will be NOOOOO!!!!
Most of people will think if being a seller i am denying to buy these products online there should be reason about this,but my description why not to buy online will clear my answer
Lets take a example of buying a setup of High Defination HD Megapixel MP 4 cameras( May be dome Cameras or Weatherproof Cameras ) Day & Night Vision) and 4 channel dvr set with harddisk,wire,power supply,bnc connectors dc pin.
and if it could be branded setup like Hikvision,Dahua,Cpplus ,Godrej,Secureye or any equivalent
or it could be any local brand as there are many brands available in delhi,mumbai,banglore pune.
Brander price for the whole setup may lies between Rs 14000-18000 Rs and Non Branded will lie between Rs 10000 to 14000 Indian Rupees.
But coming back to reality from the virtual mobile or desktop site i am buying this setup for my business or home security which is in Jammu ,as taken as example of mine,hence if i will ask for quotations from local cctv dealers and distributors most of genuine companies will quote Rs 18000 to 24000 and for non brand Rs 14000 to 18000.
Now time for critics ;;; I am misleading people ,i am tryng to fool people,its clear here that there is big difference for same products,why people should buy same thing at bigger price.....
No!!!!!!! My dear fellows ,I have strong points to support my saying,listen and read carefully
CCTv Setup is not a single item,a whole cctv setup completes and starts working only when we assemble all the reuired accessories together.
Its not Only DVR or Camera, Mostly while buying online we dont think n bother about accessories brands, neither of power supply,neither of wire nor bnc not hard disk not dc pin, my dear fellows if a person is charging very less amount for cctv setup ,then how could he would provide you a good quality wire ,good quality power supply ,good quality dc and bnc connectors,with out these good quality accessories we will not be able to get good picture quality of cameras wheather we are using 1 megapixel or 2 megapixel camera,also the durability of the whole sset up depend upon wire,
I am not blaming an online seller that he donot provide good quality,its our fault because we always search for lowest prices,and to compete for best price seller needs to compromise on quality.
SECOND THE MOST IMPORTANT :
SERVICE AND INSTALLATION OF CCTV CAMERAS
See i am ordering cctv online,but i will need some technical to installat these cameras at my location as in jammu in my case,and let me share with you that the general price of installation a cctv camera is Rs 500-1000 per camera,so we need to keep minimum 2000 Rs ready for the installer who will install my HD CCTV Camera Setup which i have bought online,
OK Done!!! Now i am relifed and assured with the online company's warranty at least for one year..But Now time for actually Movie...what if one of my camera will stop working...I will search here there and every where for the service center toll free and details of company to look over my camera.
Its cleared on all online e commerce sites that Product has one year off site warranty...and off site warranty means i need to uninstall that camera and pack it and send it to service center,which will again cost me because CCTV techinician is not my uncle who will not charge me for that....
Hope most of Technical and educated person will understand what i was tryng to ellaborate
So its genuine that you should prefer a local vendor for the instllation of cctv camera,because its for security and we should not compromise for security and as per budget ,it always cost you less as compare to Online.
