Review and Buying Guide HIKVISION DS-2CD2032-1 IP True Day Night 3 MP IR Bullet CCTV Camera

A leading good quality electronic cctv camera that is really worth each and every penny. Despite the hik name, these cameras are extremely good. I just want to alert individuals from the dome variation as they do have problems with reflected infra purple. Nonetheless this bullet variation is great, its dependable, its quickly, its suitable and its very advise. It has a tremendous sharp image, with excellent contrast ratio and definitely super night vision. If you can uncover them for below £100 then its a excellent obtain. Just view out for those people chinese firms selling on amazon. Get a model that’s in english.

Performs properly with excellent photo even so location the alarm triggers to protect against untrue alarms is fiddly.

Outstanding enterprise to offer with. Outstanding corporation to deal with, wonderful provider, the camera arrived upcoming day to my substantial shock and delight, terrific camera, exceptional photo and straightforward to put in, all in all a quite happy shopper :).

Well constructed, but no psu provided and poor app. Extremely solidly created, and is effective very well with surveillance station 5 on my qnap nas. . Even so, there is no incorporated power offer (it can be a 12v a person which is expected), and the iphone application is rubbish – doesn’t pair with the camera.

Terrific camera, excellent picture high-quality.

HIKVISION DS-2CD2032-1 IP True Day Night 3 MP IR Bullet CCTV Camera : A good step up from the 1. 3 megapixel cameras. I am pleased to say that the ‘hik’ has now been in continuous use for over a year now. Apart from having to cycle the power a few times, it has worked (and is still working) flawlessly. Original review follows]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.

    This is a very good camera, great clear sharp picture, quite simple to install and set up, but getting it to record to disc is quite tricky. Very effective on my iphone 6s plus can view from anywhere.

    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.

    A top quality digital cctv camera that is worth every penny. Despite the hik name, these cameras are very good. I just want to warn people against the dome version as they do have issues with reflected infra red. However this bullet version is great, its reliable, its fast, its compatible and its highly recommend. It has a super sharp image, with good contrast ratio and really super night vision. If you can find them for under £100 then its a brilliant buy. Just watch out for those chinese companies selling on amazon. Get a version that’s in english.

    Had i know about the nas i wouldn’t have bought it. . The picture quality on this is outstanding, very impressive, it’s also well made, also impressive. The “manual” and other documentation is dire. I didn’t have too much trouble with as i have working geek like on it stuff since 1969 but i would not recommend this to someone with little experience in networking. Having got the thing up and running, it is a very capable piece of kit, you’ll just need to work out what does what and when and if you can sort out the why, you are there. One huge niggle, a really big niggle is the nas storage. This is network attached storage where you go and buy a server box with a disk or two in it and you can use it for saving files, including video streams from ip cameras. Be warned, not all nas storage is equal in the eyes of hik vision (i wonder if they check on the word hick before they named the corporation) as it must support nfs, basically linux. Most of the decent ones do, including western digital. But this kit doesn’t like the wd’s implementation of the file system. You can get it to format on wd (ex2) and and it will work for a while, you can even re-boot the camera. But remove power from the camera and it won’t record unless you reformat.

    Superb camera for the money. I’ve been operating this cctv now for a day and an evening, testing it in normal light, sunlight and darkness (under street lighting) next to an older foscam which it is intended to replace. 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. 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.

    Good camera needing some installation effort. The hikvision 2cd2032-i is an excellent camera and currently i have 2 working as part of my domestic security system, with 2 further planned. It is robust, looks uk weather resistant (only 1 month of outside testing) and produces a decent picture. 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. From china, i received the strange combination of 5.

    Does the job nicely, and the secondary low resolution video stream is. Bought to monitor a driveway and save the videos to a network share (samba on linux). Does the job nicely, and the secondary low resolution video stream is very handy for remote monitoring on a phone.

      Very easy to install and configure with a very clear day. Bought this camera as replacement for my previous camera which broke down after 6 months. Very easy to install and configure with a very clear day and night picture. Recordings are being written to my synology nas using surveillance station and this is fully integrated.

        Great product. Shoot the technical writers. Upgrading our home security system meant spending some time reviewing various nvrs and cameras. We already have a simple wifi system but wanted a professional system that would offer all the bells and whistles. First, excellent service and delivery from pindeal. Very simple to install and connect. Excellent picture quality and ease of adjustment. At this point i have to plead guilty to having a singaporean wife who can read chinese. The instruction leaflets and the provided cd is not the easiest to follow and leaves much to be desired. These cameras should be simple plug and play but they are not. The chinese version does not follow the english and it was easier to listen to my my wife rather than try to follow the english guide. I have never thought much of technical writers as they do not seem to understand that joe public is not trained or qualified in it or electronics. Having said all of this, in reality, if you act logically when connecting these cameras it should be straight forward. I gave them 5 out of 5 because the item is very well made and of excellent quality.

    Well built, but no psu included and poor app. Very solidly built, and works well with surveillance station 5 on my qnap nas. . However, there is no included power supply (it’s a 12v one that’s required), and the iphone app is rubbish – doesn’t pair with the camera.
