Overview of the Hikvision DS-2CD2642FWD-I

This outdoor, bullet-shaped Hikvision IP camera is a true all-rounder, suited to a wide range of applications and providing 4 megapixel high resolution video at 20 frames per second (fps) or HD 1080p at 25 fps. This popular unit offers advanced around the clock surveillance with infrared-cut filter and built-in infrared LEDs, delivering clear night-time images up to a distance of 30 metres. In addition, other features include Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) for simple one cable installation, dual codec, 3D noise reduction, digital Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) and on-board SD card recording. Comes with Hikvision iVMS-4200 recording software included and supports mobile viewing via Hikvision's dedicated app (iOS and Android). Also fully compatible with market-leading Milestone Xprotect video management software.

An attractive CCTV choice, this IP camera offers high quality video capture in 4 megapixel resolution at 20 frames per second or full HD 1080p, whilst providing a flexible horizontal viewing angle of 33.8° to 112°. Equipped with an infrared-cut filter and infrared LEDs providing up to 30m of illumination, the unit delivers round-the-clock security monitoring, capturing full colour video during the day and long-range monochrome capture at night. With an IP66-rating, the camera is suitable for use externally and is protected against water and dust ingress.

Using digital Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) and 3D noise reduction technologies, the camera produces high quality video in a variety of lighting environments. Digital Wide Dynamic Range enables the camera to capture detail in both bright and dark areas, whilst 3D noise reduction improves image capture in low light, reducing noise and blur to provide clearer images. Video can be compressed using H.264 or Motion JPEG and can be stored internally to the camera’s MicroSD card slot (card not included). The unit is installed using Power over Ethernet (PoE), providing further cost benefits as only a single cable is required.

Incorporating intelligent video functionalities including line intrusion, motion detection, intrusion detection and a tampering alarm, the IP camera provides reliable activity detection and alerts for secure monitoring. With ONVIF support, the camera can be integrated into existing installations. All Hikvision cameras come with iVMS-4200 video management software and support mobile viewing using the iOS or Android app.
