Hi
I have had a Hikvision DS-7204 system fitted with TurboHD power over coax 2MP 2.8mm cameras.
The night vision as you can see is not up to much at the side path.
Can you advise. I think the side path camera should be different from the front drive camera.(maybe a 4mm?)

Cheers

John

Yes, you could certainly use a narrower field of view to the side path.
It would improve the night-time image also (you need to exclude the near wall, which is reflecting IR).
6mm would be fine.
NB - correspondingly you will see less length of path, but much bigger more detailed faces for ID of anybody who does come that way.

Hi
Thanks for the reply.
Yes the side path camera is above the door which we would rather have a better view of than the length of the path.
The camera was originally at the other end of the path.
I will ask the installer about an other camera.
It's only been for about 6 month.

Cheers

John
