Hikvision HiLook: Affordable CCTV Solution

If you are looking for an affordable high-performance CCTV solution, Hikvision HiLook is the solution you are looking for. 

HiLook is an entry-level CCTV solution developed by the leading security camera manufacturer, Hikvision. This solution is cost-effective, user-friendly, and provides a range of reliable products ideal for small to medium-sized projects.

High Performance at a Low Price

Even though HiLook is cheaper than Hikvision, the low price doesn't compromise the ability of the camera. 

Wide Variety of Products for Different Applications

The HiLook series includes an extensive collection of products, including network cameras and network video recorders (NVRs). From bullet cameras and dome cameras to turret cameras and PTZ cameras - HiLook has them all.

HiLook products have ranging resolutions, lens sizes and channels to suit a broad spectrum of user demands. 

2MP to 5MP Resolution

Resolution is one of the most important aspects of your security camera. The resolution determines the amount of detail the security camera can capture. Higher resolution cameras can capture more details and can be increased in size without becoming grainy. 

For instance, a 2 megapixel HiLook camera has a resolution of 1920 x 1080, while a 5 megapixel HiLook camera has a 2560 x 1960 resolution. Because of its higher resolution, 5 megapixel cameras capture more detail than 2 megapixel cameras. Moreover, a 5 megapixel image can be blown up to a larger scale before losing any vital details through pixelation. 

HiLook offers 2 megapixel, 4 megapixel and 5 megapixel CCTV cameras to suit a multitude of applications. 

Fixed and Varifocal Lens Size

Every premises requires a CCTV system tailored to their specific needs. This is why HiLook provides a selection of both fixed and varifocal lens sizes to choose from. 

HiLook has three different fixed lens sizes available. The widest lens size available is 2.8mm, offering a large field of view. 4mm and 6mm lens sizes are also available, providing a narrower field of view.

With a varifocal lens, the focal length can be adjusted by zooming in and out. This versatile ability enables the end-user to zoom in on important details. HiLook provides two different varifocal lens sizes, including the 2.8mm-12mm and 4.8-12mm lens. 

4, 8 and 16 NVR Channels

The number of channels an NVR has dictates how many cameras can be connected to the NVR simultaneously. For instance, a four channel NVR can have up to four network cameras connected at once, while a sixteen channel NVR can have up to sixteen. 

HiLook offers NVRs with three different channel options: four, eight and sixteen channels.

Rigorous Testing To Ensure Reliability

Hikvision ensures all of their product ranges are of the highest standard by undergoing rigorous and strict testing. These tests include ingress protection (IP), impact protection (IK), vandal resistance, and ageing. 

In fact, every HiLook camera available for purchase on the iCam webstore has an IP66 or IP67 rating. This means the cameras are protected against both dust and water to a high degree. 

HiLookVision Smartphone Application 

Instead of utilising Hikvision's Hik-Connect application that most Hikvision products use, HiLook products use the HiLookVision app. 

HiLookVision is tailored for the HiLook series and offers vast functions, including:

  • Remote live view
  • Play back recorded video
  • Video recording
  • Remote search
  • File backup
  • Scheduled storage
