Hikvision's latest range of professional IP security cameras record video at 4-megapixel resolution, capturing over twice the subject detail of even 1080p Full HD. This, along with their robust build quality and advanced automation software, has made Hikvision the go-to workhorse for tradesmen, farmers and installers across the CCTV industry.

In addition to its huge recording resolution, this compact bullet camera features 30m night vision to allow 24/7 monitoring even in unlit large rooms or gardens. What's more, with DarkFighter-lite's Low Lux sensor and advanced imaging chip, you'll get full-colour recordings for more hours of the day, as this camera can fight darkness too as low as 0.0005 Lux before having to switch to night vision.

Built safely into an IP67-rated weatherproof housing, you can install it indoors or outdoors without worry.

A Power-over-Ethernet connection lets the camera draw power directly from the network cable, helping keep installation and wiring simple. It even features a built-in MicroSD card slot, allowing you to record footage without an external device.

Keeping watch from the comfort of your sofa? No problem; the camera can be accessed remotely. Simply connect the camera to your network via a router or switch. Using Hikvision's simple remote access software, you can then view live or recorded footage remotely via a PC or mobile device.

This nifty camera also boasts Smart Analytics, including facial recognition, line crossing and intrusion detection, helping you protect your property against intruders and other kinds of trouble. These can be configured with the PC app, letting you automate your security system with incredible flexibility.
