Hikvision DS-2CD2142FWD-IWS F2.8 is a genuine high-definition IP camera with night vision, motion sensor, and simple controls.

This is one of the most popular Hikvision models, often found in stores, gas stations, offices, garages, and other facilities.

Perfect vision at all times 

Hikvision DS-2CD2142FWD-IWS F2.8 includes a high-definition 4 MP sensor. This ensures much better picture clarity and sharpness compared to the 2 MP models. Add in the with the wide viewing angle, long-range integrated night light, and you won’t have to worry about video quality no matter the time of day. 

If video is not enough, the camera also supports audio input via a 3.5mm audio jack. Note that a microphone is not included – you will need a third-party microphone for the audio to work. 

Intelligent surveillance features

Hikvision DS-2CD2142FWD-IWS F2.8 can ensure that no one goes by unnoticed with its intelligent motion detection feature. You can also set it up to monitor an area for intrusions or line crossing. The camera can even detect faces and trigger linkage features such as alarm info and email info.

Simple installation

The integrated PoE functionality simplifies integration with NVRs that include a PoE function or a PoE injector. It also reduces the number of cables needed because one cable is enough to both power the camera and connect it to a network. 

Hikvision DS-2CD2142FWD-IWS F2.8 is perfect ceiling installation. You can install it on a wall or outdoors, but then you should place it in under a roof to protect the camera from rain or snow. Outdoor locations may require more frequent cleaning to remove condensation, so we recommend other models for outside use, such as Hikvision DS-2CD2045FWD-I Bullet Camera. 

Store locally, watch remotely

Hikvision DS-2CD2142FWD-IWS F2.8 supports Micro SD cards with up to 128 GB of storage. This lets you record many hours of video footage directly to that camera. If you want to see what is happening live, that is available as well: simply connect to the camera using a computer or a smartphone app. Hikvision’s Dual Stream technology will let you save bandwidth by streaming reduced quality video while recording at full quality locally.
