Since the company's founding in 2001, they have created many new innovative security solutions.

If you need a CCTV system that produces high-quality footage in low lighting conditions, Hikvision has the solution with their DarkFighter range of equipment.

If you require a security camera that provides colourful images 24/7, Hikvision has the solution with ColorVu security cameras.

Hikvision ColorVu Series: 24/7 Colour

Earlier this year, Hikvison even released a specialised range of thermal cameras. Equipped with advanced technology, these cameras can detect abnormal temperatures with an accuracy of 0.5˚C. 

Hikvision products are suitable for both home and business applications and provide professional and tailored solutions to meet diverse requirements. From dome cameras and PTZ cameras to turret cameras and specialised surveillance cameras, Hikvision has a camera style for every scenario.

With an affordable price tag, simple installation and three-year warranty, Hikvision is the perfect choice to keep your family, business and valuable items safe and protected 24/7.  

Making Equipment Accessible With Hik-Connect

To ensure their equipment is as accessible as possible, Hikvision has produced their very own smartphone application - Hik-Connect. The app is designed to work with Hikvision DVRs, NVRs and IP cameras that support Cloud P2P functionality.

Hik-Connect allows you to view your equipment remotely, no matter where you are in the world. Additionally, Hik-Connect provides video playback features, and notifications when a motion detector alarm on a device has been triggered. 

Over the past several years, Hikvision has released many new series, with each release including new innovative technologies. 

Hikvision DarkFighter

DarkFighter technology is one of the most popular CCTV ranges. The advanced night vision sensor, specialised Darkeye lens and self-adaptive image signal processing technologies enable this equipment to produce clear and vivid footage in ultra low light scenes and complete darkness. DarkFighter is part of the EasyIP 4.0 range of IP cameras. 

Hikvision ColorVu

With ColorVu technology, black and white images at night are a thing of the past. Combining an F1.0 advanced lens, high performance sensors and warm supplemental lights, ColorVu produces striking images in full colour, 24/7. ColorVu is part of the EasyIP 4.0 range of IP cameras.

Hikvision Thermal Imaging Series

Featuring fixed and handheld thermographic cameras, these cameras can detect abnormal temperatures with an accuracy of 0.5˚C. This solution provides non-contact measurements of temperature and immediately notifies operators when an abnormal temperature is detected.

Smart Technologies and Algorithms

An array of smart technologies and algorithms are often seen in Hikvision surveillance systems.

Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) is seen in most surveillance cameras. Cameras with WDR capture crisp images in scenes with intensely contrasting lighting conditions, such as extremely bright and dark areas. Without WDR, images could be washed out, and the footage may be difficult to interpret.

Digital Noise Reduction (DNR) also improves the clarity of images by reducing the amount of noise in the footage. This is paramount at night when noise is more prevalent.

H.265+ is an intelligent algorithm developed by Hikvision. This encoding technology is based on the H.265/HEVC format, but greatly reduces the transmission bandwidth and storage capacity required. This codec improves bandwidth reduction, data storage efficiency and video content analyses.


At iCam Security, you will find a plethora of Hikvision products, including a variety of Hikvision CCTV kits.
