Pan-Tilt-Zoom (PTZ) features

Hikvision DS-2DE4225IW-DE is one of the most popular models from Hikvision’s PTZ dome camera line. Beloved by customers for its versatility and abundance of features.

It is a great solution for large areas that can be covered with a single camera.

It can offer up to 25x optical zoom and up to 16x digital zoom. Making almost every area in premises covered and recorded.

Additionally, this PTZ camera can be programmed for automated patrol. Meaning, that it can automatically change positioning to predetermined spots. It can have up to 8 different patrol programs, each containing up to 32 different points.

Also, 360° endless pan range is just an added bonus. It will not have to return to its starting position before starting a new patrol. It can round and round.

Next level video surveillance in a dark

This PTZ camera is equipped with the latest EXIR IR illumination technology. Its powerful IR illumination reaches up to 100 metres.

How EXIR illumination differs from regular previously used IR lightings? In simple terms, EXIR illuminates the whole area of its reach, not a single straight beam, which illuminates centre well, while edges seem to be darker (as per previous IRs).

In addition to this, this bullet camera is equipped with highly capable Hikvision’s own DarkFighter sensor technology. It is an industry-leading solution for ultra-low light technology. 

DarkFighter cameras typically are able to provide full colour images from as low lighting as 0.002 lux; while black and white from as low as 0.0002 lux.

Installation is an ease

Versatility of installation is second to none. You can install this camera virtually anywhere: on a ceiling, under the roof, on the wall (either indoors or outdoors), and anywhere else you fancy having it.

The wide range of brackets gives you this freedom to install it anywhere. You can choose from a number of brackets here: Camera mounts.

We believe that its IP67 rating for waterproofness and TVS4000 rating for lightning strike will give you an insurance that this camera can be used outside, without any worries about the weather.

Create a network of cameras

Hikvision DS-2DE4225IW-DE PTZ dome camera is powered either by 12V DC power adapter or you can power it via Power over Ethernet+ (PoE+). The latter power supply (over PoE+) is one of the most convenient ways to power your surveillance cameras. Less wires, less hassle. Just a straight forward connection.

We recommend using Hikvision PoE Network Video Recorders (NVRs), such as DS-7604NI-K1/4PDS-7608NI-K2/8P (based on required number of cameras / channels) to have this set-up at your home, business, or around your house.

Smart analytics and features

Hikvision DS-2DE4225IW-DE is equipped with a number of smart features. The most stand-out ones and can be used in everyday situations are motion detection and recording initiation. Also, 

  • Line Crossing Detection - when somebody crosses your pre-defined virtual line; 
  • Intrusion Detection - detection of entering and/or loitering in your pre-defined virtual region;
  • Unattended Baggage - detect objects (such as baggage, purse, etc) that are left over in the pre-defined region.
  • Object removal - detects removal of objects from pre-defined region (e.g., exhibits  on display).
  • Face detection - starts recording a video when detects a face on a moving object.
