The Hikvision DS-2DE7225IW-AE K17915 IP PTZ camera has been equipped with high quality 2 MP (1920x1080) image sensor operating at frame rate up to 50 fps. The camera provides three independently configured data streams and can use several video compression methods: H.265+/H.265/H.264+/H.264/MJPEG. Thanks to day and night modes, the camera very well renders colors in daylight and fully makes use of its high sensitivity at night. The built-in IR illuminator with a range of up to 150 m has Smart IR function that protects against overexposure. The camera is also equipped with audio input for connecting an external microphone, and audio output for connecting an active (powered) loudspeaker. This solution enables bi-directional message exchange, eavesdropping of the monitored facility and sound recording. 3D positioning function allows the operator to easily select an interesting area in order to obtain a close-up. High-class IP66 enclosure provides protection of electronics against adverse weather conditions. The camera can be powered in a conventional way, 24 VAC, or with the use of Hi-PoE.
PTZ mechanism
The P/T mechanism can change the position of the optical axis of the camera at speed of 0.1°/s...160°/s (240°/s between presets). Thanks to high sensitivity, advanced processing algorithms (3D DNR, D-WDR, BLC, HLC, Defog, EIS), the camera can effectively operate in difficult light conditions. In conjunction with 25x optical zoom and 16x digital zoom it allows for detailed monitoring of large areas with total zoom up to 400x. The ability to set up to 300 presets, 8 patrols and 4 routes, allows the operator to precisely set the camera view and create specific patrol routes.
Smart functions
The camera is equipped with smart features that increase its functionality and detection efficiency:
  • basic level: motion detection, alarm inputs/outputs, anti-tampering, exceptions,
  • intelligent event analysis: face detection, virtual line crossing, person entering/leaving a zone, leaving/taking an object in/from a zone, intruder detection,
  • smart recording: ANR, Dual-VCA,
  • ROIs: 4 areas,
  • Auto-Tracking.

H.265+ video compression
H.265+/H.265 – higher compression rate with preservation of the image quality of H.264
The camera implements several video compression methods, H.265+, H.265, H.264+, H.264, MJPEG. Compared with H.264, H.265 can reduce by half the data stream, which translates into proportional savings of the disk space or into extended data retention time. H.265+ and H.264+ are Hikvision standards based on the original systems and optimized for CCTV applications. They further minimize the streams in typical video surveillance scenarios. With the advanced video compression algorithms, the camera can be used in IP CCTV systems based on modern NVRs implementing H.265 standard (the DS-76/77/96NI-I/K series supports H.265+, H.265, H.264+, H.264). Of course, the camera can also operate with older models supporting H.264 (the DS-76/77NI-E series supports H.264+, H.264).
Continuity of recording thanks to ANR function
With the support of ANR (Automatic Network Replenishment), each the IP camera equipped with a memory card can record video in the absence of network connection. After the restoration of the network connection, the recordings are automatically synchronized with those recorded on the NVR. This ensures continuous coverage of events, even in the case of communication problems between the camera and NVR.
Convenient client applications
The iVMS 4200 client software enables users of HIKVISION devices to manage them in IP networks. The software allows for configuration and management of NVRs/DVRs, IP and analog cameras (in hybrid systems). The iVMS 4200 utility can remotely manage up to 256 devices, with the use of up to 4 monitors. Oner monitor can display up images from up to 64 cameras. Aside from system configuration and live monitoring, the utility can be used for remote playback, notifying, two-way audio transmission, creating multi-level e-maps.

Hik-Connect is a mobile application, intended for smartphones running Android or iOS operating systems. It can be used for remote live viewing of images from DVRs, NVRs, network cameras via Wi-Fi, 2G or 3G networks, and for playing back recorded video files. The application connects with the devices by IP addresses and/or through the P2P cloud.

Working in the cloud
Hik-Connect is also a network service for Hikvison devices. The service is based on data processing in the cloud and integrates the following functions:
  • Remote access through the cloud - it allows access to the device without having an external IP address and when simplicity is the most important thing. Only the basic configuration of the network is required. The application on a PC or smartphone connects with the device via P2P cloud service;
  • DDNS server - DDNS assigns a fixed domain name to dynamically changing IP addresses (Dynamic DNS). This feature is useful when the ISP does not provide users with a fixed IP address. The condition for using DDNS is having a public IP address and providing access from the external network to the appropriate ports of the NVR (server and http, by default 8000 and 80). The connection is possible via a web browser, client application on a PC and on smartphones.
Advanced applications for organizing and operating CCTV systems
The applications intended for installers and operators/users of video surveillance systems based on Hikvision devices are described in this article.

Main window of SADP application
SADP (Search Active Device Protocol) is a free and simple to use utility for searching Hikvision IP cameras and Hikvision DVRs/NVRs in the local network. The network device search tool can also be used for modification of network parameters of the Hikvision devices, including the change of passwords or recovery of default passwords. Detailed information on the software and its use is contained in the SADP application - LAN tool for organizing CCTV systems based on Hikvision devices article.
