The new NVRs are PoE-equipped which means that the need for a separate power supply to each camera is eliminated, while the inclusion of the 4MP panoramic fisheye camera allows the entire coverage of a store or office rather than having to deploy several fixed cameras. The recessed-mount dome cameras also enables installers to simply use existing downlight installations while cameras with a motorised lens, and with PT (pan-tilt) and PTZ functionality eliminates the need for post-installation camera and lens direction positioning.
As well as PoE meaning that just a single Ethernet cable is required for each camera, the Easy IP Solution includes a complete range of Wi-Fi cameras and NVRs featuring auto-detection, auto-connection and easy access. At the same time, the PoE NVRs automatically allocate an IP address to each camera when it is connected, completely removing any potential delays with configuring IP address forwarding and saving time in large installations.
Featuring on-board storage on many of the cameras, Hikvision’s Easy IP Solution also offers compression efficiency codecs to reduce the burden placed on the transmission and storage elements of the system. This is significant for high-definition IP systems where bandwidth and storage costs can be a major concern – a standard H.264 camera with full HD 1080p resolution and one month of recording can result in about 1.2 TB of space consumed. The Hikvision H.264+ optimised Smart codec technology helps to reduce storage consumption by up to two-thirds, with full HD 1080p resolution for one month consuming just 462 GB.
All Hikvision Easy IP cameras support the EZVIZ Cloud – P2P service, which enables remote access from a smartphone. This means users can view the live video and recorded video files anytime and anywhere. EZVIZ also includes Intelligent Alarm support so that any intrusion or emergency events can be precisely recognised and resolved.
