Keeping a highly detailed watch over wide open spaces such as roads, railways and stations, airports, recreation grounds, campuses, industrial sites and large event venues, usually requires the tedious installation of lots of different CCTV cameras everywhere. Not with this dapper DarkFighter!
With its many incredible features, this is most definitely not your average camera. Hikvision's DarkFighter can deliver a whopping 8 megapixel quality of video footage at up to 25 frames per second. Add some flexible pan, tilt and 36x optical zoom functions, and you won't miss a thing.
No matter how large or far the exposed area of interest, you are sure to get clear, seriously detailed images. Besides, Smart IR automatically reduces intensity for closer subjects, preventing them from becoming overexposed and losing detail.
Challenging lighting conditions? No problem, thanks to wide dynamic range technology and 3D noise reduction. This round-the-clock DarkFighter boasts true day/night functionality with Smart integrated infrared LEDs providing up to 200m of night vision.
What's more, with the 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 to as low as 0.0005 Lux before having to switch to night vision.
Harsh weather conditions or other kinds of demanding external factors don't scare this fierce fighter either. The camera is housed in a strong, metal IP67-rated casing, complete with built-in wiper for self-cleaning! It doesn't stop there. How about some added Smart Defog technology, EIS (Electronic Image Stabilisation), and hammerproof IK10-protection, withstanding the boldest of vandals? This nifty thing has it all.
For ultimate scene awareness, you can configure Hikvision's latest Smart Detection methods, including motion, intrusion, and line crossing trigger technology. It supports edge recording and real-time alerts which can also be set up as email notifications.
Any more smart functions? Yup. This evolved PTZ camera also features Audio I/O, face detection, audio exception, and Smart Tracking, which enables the camera to detect and follow any progressively moving object. Surveillance just raised its Top Security game.
Recordings can be stored on-board with an in-built card slot supporting MicroSD cards up to 256GB (cards not included). Very handy as a storage backup, plus, you won't need an external recorder. The system also offers NAS and ANR storage options.
Oh yes, and the latest H.265+/H.265 video compression technology allows storage of more and better quality footage in the same space.
Moreover, this mega camera features High Power-over-Ethernet (Hi-PoE), and easy remote access via free Hikvision iVMS-4200 video management software.
Please note: Hikvision's DarkFighter has a 1 week lead time, and is not provided with a power supply, so you can contact our sales team to discuss which power supply options best suit your needs.
