I was recently contacted by a US government buyer who needed to replace 20 Dahua and Hikvision CCTV DVRs because they were not compliant with the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).
It appears that the NDAA specifically bans security cameras and video surveillance equipment manufactured by Hikvision and Dahua, or any Hikvision or Dahua OEM manufacturers. The NDAA also requires all federal government and “critical infrastructure” to remove any product that originated in a Hikvision or Dahua factory before Aug 1, 2019. We have also read that the NDAA also impacts some or all Honeywell, Hikvision, Dahua, Lorex, Swann, LTS, Annke, Alibi, Laview, WBox, Interlogix, Flir, Bosch, ICRealtime, QSee, Panasonic, ADT, Indigo Vision, Montavue, DVRs, NVRs, and IP cameras.
CCTV Camera Pros has confirmed with our manufacturing partner that our iDVR-PRO security camera DVRs are NDAA compliant. These recorders DO NOT contain the HiSilicon Huawei chipset, and are NOT manufactured by any of the sanctioned manufacturers or their OEMs.
NDAA Compliant Chipset
iDVR-PRO DVRs use Techpoint processor chips, NOT the banned HiSilicon chip from Huawei.
Here is a close-up picture of the motherboard, so that you can see the Techpoint chips.
