American Made Security Cameras

"America First" message resonated with many fellow Americans. We get asked "do you have security cameras made in usa" question from our customers pretty regularly. As a result, we decided to make a page and share what we know about the brands that claim to be "made in usa security camera manufacturer".

Unfortunately, the short answer is we hardly have any security camera manufacturing in United States at this moment. There are companies who make housing or enclosure for security cameras in United States however we do not have many factories that are manufacturing security cameras at the moment. We hope this changes with new government funding programs and we will see more products with our flag.

The list below includes brands who claim they are made in USA. So let's delve into it:

  1. Pelco
  2. Arecont Vision: Assembles security cameras
  3. Digital Watchdog:

  5. Ubiquiti
  6. Honeywell
