Broad range of estate solutions

Residential Estate Security Handbook 2020 Access Control & Identity Management

Hikvision is known for its range of surveillance products, both analogue and IP. Its stand at the residential conference covered the surveillance aspect of Hikvision’s product portfolio, but also went further.

For example, AcuSense technology from the company runs on its DVRs and provides intelligence to estates that will allow the system to automatically differentiate between animals and humans – and more. Hikvision’s ColorVu, on the other hand, allows cameras to view colour images, even in the dark, making the job of operators and guards easier by transmitting clearer images.

When considering the estate perimeter, the latest technology from Hikvision offers perimeter protection boosted by intelligent software that detects motion on the perimeter, but goes further in that it can automatically identify who or what is moving, avoiding false alarms when animals or vehicles are detected. In fact, the technology is able to identify humans even if they crouch or crawl, and the system can learn to ignore branches blowing in the wind and other non-security events. Thermal cameras are, of course, also available.

Hikvision also supplies access control solutions for estates, as well as intercoms for individual residences or even smaller estates. The company also offers licence-plate recognition (LPR) cameras as an additional security measure at the gate. The latest development from Hikvision in its access control portfolio is the MinMoe range of products that offer fast facial recognition. These readers recognise faces at up to 2 m and have also been enhanced to provide mask detection – temperature readings are also possible.

Finally, Hikvision also offers the Hikvision Intrusion Alarm solution, which includes wireless alarm control panels and peripherals that make it fast and easy to deploy in home environments. Of course, wired solutions are also available.
