    Default Duty/taxes on security camera systems

    Any experience or advise on the tax/import fee for bringing in this or similar $2000 camera system. https://www.costco.com/.product.1310241.html

    Option 1 shipped as an additional item to a barrel.

    Option 2 with luggage before Christmas.

    Option 3 with luggage during Christmas period.


    System comes with 16 cameras capable of 32.

    Would rather not wait till Christmas

    Thanks

    I will be getting a price send mudanza from NY. I thought i saw on dr1 that security cameras were tax free. Is this true? What is the best company to currently use? Have not sent anything in a while.

    Can't answer the tax free question..

    In NYC , I use Jesus Parra at Awlida in Corona NY.
    Ship it to him and he'll quote you a price - payable in advance or on delivery in RD

    Do you have a number Awlida or Jesus directly. I have used Monumental who then changed name to Espanola also in corona. Wonder if they are all the same firm.

    Default Cam info.

    Have been mailing/talking with Luperon and gave him access to view one of our cams. Found this Video that is well done.

    After trying other cams that failed within a couple of months, we tried a couple of indoor Nest cams. We now have 6 indoor (2 recording outside through window glass.) and 6 outdoor. Don't have the Alexa or the fancy TV. lol (Now I want...)

    They are taxed. We usually buy them at Best Buy when in the U.S., un-package them and in luggage so no tax (lol) or via Amazon, shipped and taxed. We did upgrade our routers and our internet is good enough most of the time. When that slows or is over loaded during the day, I can turn off some cams and gain some speed/band width. Have the 5 day storage plan for 6 cams. U.S. $50. per cam per year.
