IP cameras, also called network cameras, send the recordings to the network via a video stream. You can view the video stream conveniently in your web browser, on a network video recorder, or on the go via the DMSS app for Android and iPhone. Modern encoding methods, such as the H.265 codec, reduce the size of the video and audio signals. This means that even smaller hard disks can cover a large recording volume. Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) allows you to control and power your cameras with just one cable. With the help of Dahua's active converters, you can also integrate your IP cameras into a system that only uses coaxial BNC cables. Our sales department will be happy to help you find a suitable solution that exactly meets your needs.
Network cameras support resolutions far beyond 4K-UHD. Dahua Technology currently produces IP cameras with resolutions of up to 12 megapixels, which is an increase in the number of pixels by more than 50% compared to 8 megapixels / 4K-UHD. The higher resolution allows more details to be seen, so the information content of the images increases. The distance of the camera to the monitored area plays a major role in the selection of the appropriate resolution. If you place your camera at great heights, or if you use it to survey larger areas, then a high resolution offers you the possibility of recognising details from a greater distance when using digital zoom.
The frame rate, specified in "fps", is an important component in recording, as a smooth image reproduction provides more usable information. A higher frame rate ensures that even fast objects can be easily recognised in the recording.
With the help of numerous junction boxes, extensions, hanging mount adapters and mounting boxes, you have a wide range of options to install your cameras safely even in difficult locations. By using active converters, you can operate your network cameras over existing coaxial cables even without existing Ethernet cables, saving you time and labour costs.
Full-colour cameras are particularly suitable for applications where colour information such as vehicle and clothing colour is important even in very low light (e.g. only outdoor lighting). Or to put it simply, full colour is always the right choice when you want to see colour images even in very low light (as an alternative to IR mode). In our shop you will find a wide range of Full-Color cameras.
Wide Dynamic Range
Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) is a technique for balancing light and dark areas in the image. Especially in scenes with very high contrast, the WDR function ensures that an even exposure takes place. In this way, even people standing in front of a light source, such as a window or a spotlight, can be easily recognised.
WizSense und WizMind
WizSense cameras offer the following AI functions: SmartMotionDetection, Active Deterrence, Perimeter Protection, Face Detection and more. In addition to the features of WizSense cameras, Wizmind series cameras also support people counting, video metadata, ANPR, privacy protection and more.
Especially in areas where there is a very high risk of fire or explosion, conventional cameras are often not allowed to be installed. With the EPC230U, Dahua offers an explosion-proof camera that complies with all current certificates and can be installed in critical areas.
The IMOU series from Dahua are consumer cameras that are ideal for monitoring private property due to their small size, microphones, pan and tilt function and the possibility of integration into the IMOU Life app. Due to their small size and the possibility to equip the cameras with rubber caps, they are particularly suitable for monitoring pets, infants and small children.
Panorama cameras have several lenses and thus provide a very wide angle of view, which is particularly suitable for large areas.
Dahua's Thermal Technology allows early detection of fire through intelligent algorithms. Even small flames are reliably detected long before a smoke alarm goes off. The special feature of the thermal cameras is that they are equipped with 2 lenses. One ordinary lens for normal vision and one lens for heat radiation. The thermal lens can be used in combination with the smoking detection to detect smoking in no-smoking zones. Active deterrent can be used to warn people immediately with a flashing light and acoustic signal.
Very powerful thermal cameras are used in combination with a Blackbody as a temperature reference object. This enables very accurate temperature measurement and can therefore be used, for example, to measure the body temperature of people in the image. Are you planning a body temperature control for your building? Our customer support will be happy to inform you about our products and assist you with experience and competent advice.
The IP cameras from Dahua are available in white, dark grey and black.
Surveillance cameras come in a variety of designs. The best known of these are the "bullet" cameras, which resemble a tube due to their design. These cameras are preferred for outdoor use. Dome and eyeball cameras often have round and very compact housings. In the case of "dome" cameras, the lens of the camera is protected under a glass dome from external influences such as weather or vandalism. When buying, look for the IK10 rating, these cameras are vandalism-proof! Thanks to their very short focal length, fisheye cameras have the special ability to create a very wide angle of view. With the help of a suitable recorder that supports "Fisheye Dewarp", you have the possibility to display several image sections of the fisheye camera undistorted. Pinhole cameras are used in places where a standard camera would be immediately detected. Due to their size, they are easy to install and can be hidden in their surroundings. PTZ cameras (pan-tilt-zoom) have the function of being controlled remotely. This allows you to quickly change the camera's field of view or follow events.
A high resolution offers a more detailed image and ensures that even with a high digital zoom, many details such as number plates, faces and more, remain visible. You can find Dahua network cameras in resolutions up to 12 megapixels.
IR LED Lighting Distance
A high illumination distance of the infrared LEDs ensures that even larger areas are illuminated for the camera at night. The infrared light can only be seen by the cameras and offers the cameras the possibility to produce a black and white image even in complete darkness.
Choose between a motorised lens where you can easily adjust and change the focal length yourself, or a fixed lens with a fixed focal length for use in places where it is not necessary to mechanically change the angle of view.
Use the audio input of your IP camera to connect a compatible microphone. Often the quality of the built-in microphone is not sufficient, or the camera is placed in a location (e.g. near a TV or ventilation) where audio recordings become unusable. By connecting a microphone, you can influence and improve the recording location and quality yourself, e.g. by using an omni-directional microphone with noise reduction.
A 2-way talk function can be established via the built-in loudspeaker of some IP cameras. This allows you to contact and communicate directly with staff, guests or unwanted parties at the location of the camera.
Use the perimeter protection to define zones and lines in the user interface of your camera. You have the option to set a filter for people or vehicles. If, for example, an object detected by your filter enters the camera's field of view and crosses the drawn line or zone, the camera triggers an alarm.
SMD stands for "Smart Motion Detection" and is Dahua's proprietary intelligent technology for filtering false alarms by clearly detecting people and vehicles. In old camera systems with "motion detection", animals, leaves blown around by the wind or changing light conditions in the image often caused a false alarm to be triggered. With intelligent object detection, however, the IP camera can recognise whether the detected object is a person or a vehicle. This helps you avoid false alarms and saves time and money filtering out useless information in the video footage. Fast target search in combination with a network recorder, the SmartPSS or DSS Express/Pro, allows you to quickly find in the footage when a person or vehicle has been detected, saving you a lot of time in event recall.
Possible application scenarios include areas in industry where people and vehicles are not allowed to enter, monuments or works of art in museums that require a minimum distance, or terrain surveillance to trigger an alarm when strangers enter a protected area.
Using face capture, your network camera can capture a person's face and store it together with attributes such as: Age, gender, facial expression, glasses, mask and/or beard.
If you have already stored predefined images of people on your device, the face recognition camera will compare the captured face with those from the database when it detects a person. If there are matches, you can have an alarm triggered.
Video metadata is the additional recording and storage of information on people, vehicles and bicycles. The camera records, among other things, the following information about people: Image of face, gender, clothing, colour of clothing. For vehicles: image of the vehicle, image of the number plate, vehicle type, colour, sun visor, seat belt fastened, smoking, telephoning. For bicycles, the camera recognises type and colour, among other things.
By drawing a "trip wire" as a line in combination with a zone in the live image of the camera, entries and exits can be counted.
To protect privacy, you can pixelate faces or even entire bodies in the live image of the camera. This creates a mosaic filter over the affected area that no longer allows people to be identified.
ANPR is the abbreviation for "Automatic Number Plate Recognition" and covers the automatic recognition and recording of number plates on motor vehicles.
Autotracking is used to automatically track an object after triggering an IVS rule, such as crossing a defined line. The camera uses its PTZ function to keep the target object in the centre of the image and to track it.
Network cameras with mobile communications function can be connected to the Internet even without a network cable by using the existing mobile phone network via SIM card. This allows cameras to be used even in places without an existing network infrastructure.
Many IP cameras already have a built-in microphone and send the audio signal together with the video stream to the network.
Network cameras can also be connected wirelessly to your network via Wi-Fi using their built-in wireless interface. You can enter the information such as SSID and network key manually or use the WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) button to connect your camera to your router or network recorder.
You can connect devices such as sensors or Infra-Red motion detectors via the alarm input of your IP camera in order to have the camera perform certain actions after motion is detected, e.g. start a recording.
Devices such as acoustic sirens or warning and alarm lights can be triggered directly by the camera in the event of an alarm. To do this, connect your devices directly to the alarm output of your camera.
Active Deterrence is designed to deter an intruding target using blue/red strobe lights and/or an audible alarm. The flashing lights and the loud alarm make these cameras ideal for monitoring sensitive locations. This makes it clear to burglars that they have been detected. By using predefined tones or importing user-defined ones, you can customise the alarm to suit your scenario. Cameras with Active Deterrence can be found under the TiOC models from Dahua.
