Secure Vision

There are many options out there when it comes to CCTV.  One brand we have always came back to is HIKVision. With their new cost effective range, HIWatch, we can all now afford to secure our homes and businesses.

The NIKVision HIWatch IPC-T240 is a 4MB IP Camera meaning you will have crisp images with minimal installation fuss – just one simple cable does it all.

Inside the box we find the following:

IP Camera

Water Proof fixings

User Guide

CD ROM (which includes software to get you started)

Drill Template and fixing screws.

The camera itself is light, which goes to show the casing is plastic rather than metal as on the higher end HIKVision models, however this does not detract from the image quality at all.  In some ways it makes the camera easier to install when you are up a ladder, with no hands free trying to screw it to the wall.

Talking of which, we were pleasantly surprised HIKVision included the Drill Template – this is a sticker which you can attach to your wall and simply drill through – making that “up ladder” experience even easier. 

Look here

Once installed and connected to your NVR, you will see a real crisp bright image, which can pick out the fine details of your monitored area.  As the camera is 4MB, you also have the option of zooming into saved images, without loosing too much quality or causing too my pixelation (obviously there are limitations to this).

Configuring the NIKVision HIWatch IPC-T240 is a breeze thanks to the easy to use Web interface which is built in to each camera.  If you camera is connected to your NVR, configuration can be done through the NVR itself which is even easier and straight forward.
