720p HD recording
This ECO series is equipped with a 720p (1280×720) high definition camera. It helps to capture crystal clear images and noise-free videos. This TurboHD lenses captures every image with great detail and provides you with the best results.
The TurboHD output of 720p high definition from this camera requires somewhat of storage. This dome camera comes with a dedicated card slot that supports up to 64Gb of sd card. 720p resolution of continuous recording would take about a month before it makes the card full.
The power consumption of this dome camera is almost next to none. The maximum wattage this device would consume is of 4 watts only. This means an annual consumption of 30-40 units will be consumed, which is a very low cost.
What Do We like
Night vision mode
The night vision feature of this dome camera is pretty decent at this price range. It comes with 12 infrared built-in LED lights that help these sensors capture the true image with and video with proper visibility as well. This also can capture an image from a distance of up to 20 meters or 65 feet.
The 1 Megapixel high-performance CMOS sensor is not bad for this price range. They capture 720p resolution images and videos at day/night. The effective pixels of the sensor makes sure the captured image does not get pixellated or noisy.
This TurboHD runs offline and online. If you have a smartphone already, then all you have to do is install this company’s app and go through the setup process. Once both of the devices are connected with a stable connection, you can then watch the live feed of your home, access to the footage from its sd card, and rotate its face as well.
This 1 Megapixel lens is equipped with an F1.2 aperture. This means it helps to enter more light into the lens and takes a better quality picture even in completely dark areas. This, combined with the infrared lights, noiseless images, and videos, are what makes it worthy.
This low budget product from Hikvision comes with face rotation feature built-in. You can rotate its face up to 360 degrees horizontally and 75 degrees vertically to cover the whole area of your house. This will not leave many blind spots.
What We Don’t Like
The price range for this product is very low. So naturally, the build quality will drop accordingly. The outer body of this dome camera is made of poor quality plastic that feels cheap and is not durable at all. Must do the installation very firmly.
This is one of the pocket-friendly products from Hikvision. The price range is very low, yet the company has provided with multiple features. There are few cons in this product like any other products, yet the image clarity, video quality, noiseless videos trump all that. The design looks good in spite of the poor build quality. Also, this product comes with a 2-year manufacturer warranty too. This product is good value for money and worth buying it.
