Hikvision DS-2CD2043G0-I F2.8 - 2.8mm Lens 4 Megapixel Bullet IP PoE Camera (Black) 

Hikvision DS-2CD2043G0-I is a versatile IP camera that packs the most-advanced camera technology in a compact casing. It has been well-received by many of our customers from all around the world. 

The model is suitable for a wide range of indoor and outdoor uses. Our customers often choose it to surveil backyards, manufacturing premises, warehouses, car lots, and even retail stores. 

Hikvision DS-2CD2043G0-I works perfectly with Hikvision NVR devices. We recommend using it with Hikvision DS-7608NI-K2/8P.

Perfect vision, day or night

Hikvision DS-2CD2043G0-I includes a high-definition 4 megapixel sensor that is capable of driving 2688 × 1520 pixels at full 30fps. 

The advanced WDR technology keeps objects legible even against strong backlight – you would be able to see a person’s face even if she was standing against a sun-lit window; without it, the face would simply become a dark blur. 

What about the opposite – complete darkness? Hikvision DS-2CD2043G0-I features IR lighting up to 30 meters. The camera’s bullet shape allows for easier reach of hard-to-see areas. All this is further enhanced by Hikvision’s Darkfighter technology which ensures better performance compared to most mid-range camera models. 

Compact, yet durable exterior

Hikvision DS-2CD2043G0-I embodies the latest advancements in camera technology with features like improved night vision, new video compression algorithm, and smart behavior analysis modes. It manages to fit everything in a surprisingly compact body made fully out of metal. Moreover, the camera is built to withstand the elements with IP67 protection and high temperature tolerance. 

Smart surveillance modes

Hikvision DS-2CD2043G0-I has four modes to help you achieve your surveillance objectives. You can configure it to track line crossing detection, stop intrusions with a predetermined alarm region, take care of unattended baggage by tracking objects, and make sure that items are not removed from their place. These are but a few of the camera’s many intelligent features. 

Store locally, watch remotely

Hikvision DS-2CD2043G0-I includes an SD card slot where you can fit cards up to 128 GB in size. This lets you record days of footage – or even weeks, thanks to the new H.265 compression algorithm – straight to the camera’s local storage. Watch the recordings or live transmission at any time by connecting through the IP address, mobile app, or the IVMS computer software. 

Simple installation

Hikvision DS-2CD2043G0-I supports the PoE technology where you only need one cable for both power and network. This saves space and simplifies the installation process. The fixation leg is easily movable, allowing you to install the IP camera at any angle and point it to any direction you want.

We recommend using the original Hikvision DS-1280ZJ-XS bracket designed for this particular model which lets you hide the wire harness.
