What Do We like

Night vision mode

The night vision of this dome camera is quite effective. The built-in infrared lights enhance the image capturing ability of the camera. The captured image and video appears as a monochrome image but with proper visibility and clarity. This can take crystal clear images from a distance of up to 20 meters.

Image sensor

This camera comes with a 2 Megapixel CMOS image sensor. The active pixels make sure the image quality is maintained, and it does not get pixellated. The sensors capture more light and use it while recording videos or capturing images converting them into high-quality photos and videos.

Remote access from anywhere

Now you can watch the live feed of this dome camera using your smartphone. It does not matter in what part of the world you are now, just install the app of Hikvision camera and go through the easy setup to get started. Once you are done with it, monitor the live feed from anywhere and also get access to the footage and pictures as well.

Shutter time

The shutter speed of a camera is simply a barrier that stays open to let light into the image. It decides how long the image will be exposed to the light. This dome camera from Hikvision is offering a shutter time of 1/25s to 1/50,000s. This means even at low light, it can take crystal clear photos with enough lights, and also it can capture the picture of a fast-moving object as well.

Wide-angle view

This camera will cover and record the whole area of your house, leaving no blind spots. This can be panned 360 degrees horizontally and 75 degrees vertically that enables this device to cover everything. You can use your smartphone to rotate the camera’s face.

What We Don’t Like

Motion detection

This is a very low budget model dome camera, but the motion detection feature is one of the important aspects for any security cameras out there. This model does not have this feature and is considered as a major con.


This may be the lowest range product from Hikvision that too having so many features in it. The product is not one of the best, but according to the price range, it works pretty well. The night vision feature is pretty good as well as the build quality. Apart from a few cons, if you are looking for a very cheaper security dome camera, then this is your best option.
