Purchasing security cameras takes a little bit of research to make sure that you are getting the right devices for your purposes. There are so many different options on the market. It may feel like a very difficult decision. At Precision Security Australia we mainly use Hikvision products for all of our installs. We trust their camera systems to get the job done and have not had complaints about their devices.
Hikvision is a security camera company that has been around since 2001. It went public in 2010. As a company, they are very focused on staying at the top of the industry. With a thorough research and development department that is well funded, they are able to make that a possibility.
Why do we choose Hikvision, and why should you too? We are going to explore some of the reasons that we choose them over the competitors.
Hikvision Has An Amazing Reputation
When looking at security cameras, one of the most important deciding factors is the reputation of the security camera company. Hikvision has the reputation that you want when picking a security camera company. People have chosen to install them around the world in various applications from residential to business. Hikvision is even trusted to provide security cameras for the government sector.
HD Night Vision Lens
One of the prominent features of Hikvision cameras is their high definition night vision lens. A technology referred to as EXIR allows the cameras to use a separate mounting of infrared LEDs to project non-visible light in order to illuminate the night on camera.
The best security camera systems have the ability to remotely view your camera footage from computers and compatible smart devices. You can also access the DVR/NVR’s stored footage from your other devices. These features are perfect as they allow you to ensure the safety and security of your property from afar. You can check in at any time.
Options That You Need
Hikvision has a wide selection of security cameras. There is a device to meet almost all security needs. From weatherproof to temperature proof cameras. On a more basic level, they also have the ability to get PTZ (Pan/Tilt/Zoom) cameras, bullet cameras, and/or dome cameras. Not every manufacturer has this amount of options to choose from.
Bullet Cameras - A bullet camera is what a lot of people think of when they hear the word security camera. Depending on the specific device, the straight design sometimes ends up looking like a bullet.
IP Cameras - IP stands for internet protocol and it refers to how the camera transmits its data. The main feature of an IP camera is that the images are transmitted over the internet so you can access and view your cameras from a variety of devices. Sometimes the cameras can also be recorded to the cloud in addition to the NVR.
Dome Cameras - A dome camera is shaped just like a dome, that is how they got their name. They work well as internal cameras, and some premium versions can be used outside too. With a dome camera you can get a 360 degree view with the ability to rotate the camera lens. Some versions of these cameras are vandal proof and they can all be installed so that they are hard to notice.
