This indoor network camera is a low-cost surveillance choice from Hikvision, providing up to 4 megapixel resolution at 12.5 frames per second (fps) or HD 1080p at 25fps. The compact IP camera features a 1.6mm fisheye lens with 186°/106° viewing angle, on-board storage with MicroSD card (card not included) and Power-over-Ethernet. The camera is a cost-effective solution for users who require a small scale CCTV installation for home or office use.

With a viewing angle of 186° (horizontal) / 106° (vertical), this model allows a large region to be captured with a single camera. Digital pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) viewing allows the image to be viewed with less distortion by de-warping the curvature of the full image. Image enhancement functions such as 3D noise reduction improve clarity within the image and reduce the 'grain' that is often seen in low-light video. In addition, backlight compensation is also supported in this unit, to reduce areas of interest being silhouetted against bright backgrounds.

Using video detection methods such as line crossing and tampering alarms, alerts can be sent via email or mobile devices when motion is detected by the camera. These mobile monitoring apps, available on iOS and Android, support viewing on the move and provide easy camera control.

The camera is capable of dual-streaming H.264 video, allowing you to tailor monitoring and recording settings to optimise use of network resources and storage. Additionally, data can be stored to a MicroSD card (card not included) providing a low-cost data back up in the event of network failure. PoE support means power is supplied to the camera through the Ethernet cable, providing easy installation and a cost-effective CCTV choice. All Hikvision cameras come with iVMS-4200 video management software enabling simple and effective camera control ideal for smaller scale installations.

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