Overview of the Hikvision DS-2CD2122FWD-I

This outdoor dome network camera is an entry level product from the low-cost Hikvision range, capable of 2 megapixel resolution at 25 frames per second (fps). The unit is capable of true day/night surveillance with infrared LEDs illuminating between 10m to 30m for best results. Other features include wide dynamic range, 3D noise reduction, MicroSD card recording, Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) and support for mobile viewing via Hikvision video management software.

This camera delivers cost-effective surveillance for outdoor locations where simple monitoring or recording is needed round the clock. Full colour images are available in daylight and black and white images are shown at night using infrared (IR) technology. Integrated IR illumination allows the operator to view up to 30m of the scene in complete darkness and image clarity is improved with 3D noise reduction technology to provide sharper images for better analysis. Additionally, 120dB wide dynamic range (WDR) helps the camera balance high contrast areas of a scene and retain details that would otherwise be lost. Featuring IP67 rated weather resistance, IK10 rated impact resistance and a tampering alarm, this model has been designed to be a practical installation in external locations.

The video motion detection methods available cater for common scenarios such as line crossing and intrusion. Users can be notified of alerts in a variety of ways including email and mobile support provides flexible remote viewing in addition to simple and effective camera control.

Recordings can be stored internally on a MicroSD card (card not included) which means this camera is ideal for a stand-alone installation. Two commonly used compression formats give options on the quality and size of video files and internal card storage also provides a data backup capability if the network fails. For those looking at best value, support for PoE means power is supplied to the camera through the Ethernet cable, simplifying installation and eliminating the need for a separate power supply.

This model comes with a choice of lens (please select in dropdown menu). The default 4mm option (DS-2CD2122FWD-I) provides a 90 horizontal angle of view whereas the 2.8mm (DS-2CD2122FWD-I-2.8) lens gives 115 horizontal angle of view.

Please note: this camera does not come with a power supply, please select one from the drop down menu above if required.
