It's important to understand firstly that I've been running home CCTV cameras for over five years now so can't really comment on how suitable this camera is for beginners. In practice, I unpacked it, installed it, changed the IP settings and port forwarded to it all without reading the manual, so I would say if you've set up any camera before you should be fine. In any case, good manuals are available online and there are loads of comprehensive clips on YouTube.
The Hikvision seemed the cheapest way to toe-dip into 1080p CCTV and I was really impressed with the sample footage seen from this online.
So to the camera itself. When I unpacked it I was really pleased with the small-ish size. I was a bit worried it would be too big as it's replacing pan and tilt CCTVs on my upper floor windowsills and didn't want them to stand out, but it's fine. From outside it actually has the same or less diameter front-on than the head of the Foscams. Note you will need to do something creative to use it the "wrong" way up, it is designed to be attached to a wall or ceiling, I screwed the mounting plate down onto a bit of wood and then raised this up with some books so it "looks" over the window frame and doesn't fall over. It's a ball and socket type joint so the plate can go anywhere, ceiling or below the camera, but obviously in screwing it down into something (rather than up into a ceiling) you will need to make sure what you screw it on is stable.Read more ›
I was looking for a 3MP external CCTV camera. Up until now, I have been using the Foscam megapixel cameras (FI9805) and was pleased with them. However, I wanted a higher resolution that could read a number plate at 15m whilst retaining a fairly wide viewing angle. The 'Hik' seemed to fit the bill without breaking the bank.
It is probably worth mentioning early on that a lot of these cameras are being supplied direct from China. This helps reduce the price but be aware that any printed material will be in Chinese. If you really want the PRINTED instructions to be in English (it is really only a couple of leaflets and there is still a CD with a full English instruction manual supplied regardless of where the camera originates) then buy from a European seller but it will probably be more expensive. Also, from reading other Hikvision reviews, some of the most recent (late 2015) Chinese originating cameras have a version of firmware that locks them to the Chinese language. Although changing this is possible, it does make using the camera very difficult if you do not understand Chinese. In light of this, I would recommend buying from a European seller.
First off, I was surprised at how small it is. I haven't measured it but the diameter is about 3 inches and maybe 5 inches long. The model I bought was Power Over Ethernet (PoE) and did not have WiFi capability. I read somewhere that none of the Hikvision cameras support WiFi but I haven't checked their entire range to see if that is true.Read more ›
You cannot activate them yourself using the regular HikVision SADP tool, and you cannot get support from the manufacturer as they are sold 'out of region'.
I returned 3 of these cameras as they useless in the UK but Amazon charged £20 per camera restocking fee. So I guess the seller made £60 for shipping me a defective product.
I’m not entirely convinced by:
(1) the mounting system; it could really do with some kind of rubber mount to ensure the flat base of the camera can be mounted firmly against an uneven surface, such as house brick or stonework,
(2) the 12 V power connector. It is unclear how this should be weather-proofed. I used self-amalgamating tape over the 12 V connector but this is not neat.
As supplied from Amazon, I received camera software version 5.3.0 in English. From China, I received the strange combination of 5.2.5 in the camera and 5.3.0 on the box label. My monitoring application uses MJPEG demanding at least 5.3.0, so I had to upgrade to Chinese 5.3.0 requiring the use of Google Translate to configure this camera.
The Hikvision monitoring software is somewhat eccentric but was reliable on test. Eventually I made use of motionPie, which has proved equally reliable.
Spiders love this warm camera and I am having to brush webs away every few days - not a camera to be mounted out of the way.
An excellent camera, competitively priced needing some effort to get it all running properly.

I found this to be a great improvement over the Foscam devices that I'm using. The software is pretty awful, but that's the same for all of these Chinese cameras.Published 16 months ago by Jerry
