See everything, hear everything

Hikvision DS-2CD2442FWD-IW F4 has a powerful 4 megapixel sensor that lets you see everything in sharp detail. The lens is extra wide to ensure a wide view of an indoor space: for example, if you install it in a corner, you will be able to surveil the space from wall to wall. The integrated IR light provides up to 10 meters of vision even in complete darkness.

What is more, unlike many other IP cameras, Hikvision DS-2CD2442FWD-IW F4 supports audio surveillance. So, you can not only see but also hear everything around – whether live or watching recorded footage. You can even speak directly with your customers using the integrated speaker. 

Simplify your surveillance with smart features

Hikvision DS-2CD2442FWD-IW F4 makes use of the latest technology to help you keep your property attended and safe. It can notify you of any motion in the area, report loitering, and even detect the intruder’s face. You can also set up a pre-defined line that should not be crossed. And if someone tries to tamper with video footage, the camera will automatically let you know.

Record locally, watch remotely

You can furnish Hikvision DS-2CD2442FWD-IW F4 with a large SD card up to 128 GB in size. This lets you store days or even weeks of footage directly on the camera’s local storage. You can access this video from anywhere, at anytime, using your computer or mobile device. Hikvision’s Dual Stream technology will will save you streaming bandwidth costs while retaining the original quality locally. 

You can even configure this camera to fall back to the SD card if your NVR suddenly loses connection to prevent even a moment from being lost.  

Easy integration and compact design

Despite its many features, Hikvision DS-2CD2442FWD-IW F4 manages to keep a compact footprint, making it easy to install in versatile environments. The camera has a special leg which allows various installation methods: placing it on a surface, installing it on a wall or ceiling. It also supports the PoE technology – use a single cable for both power and network connection.
