Backstreet vs. Lorex

Special Offers

One of the most common questions we are asked "What is the difference between Backstreet and Lorex?" We'll do our best to explain.

Lorex is a consumer grade prepackaged kit that is sold through Big Box Stores such as Costco, Sam's Club and Home Depot. They also sell direct to consumers online. Everyday we help customers replace new Lorex systems that did not perform as the customer expected. But there is more you should know before you make a decision.

Backstreet Difference 2

Product Design - Lorex vs. Backstreet

There are two types of suppliers; Mass Merchants and Professional Security. Mass merchants, such as Lorex, design equipment to target a preselected price point. The electronics are then selected to fit within that price. Professional equipment is designed for performance and then the price is based on the cost of the electronics. One pricing model produces reliable high performance equipment and the other produces low cost low quality equipment.
