Quick Overview


The Hikvision DS-2CD2542FWD-I is a 4MP WDR Mini Dome Network Camera with a built-in microphone for audio recording, and an external pig-tail connector for audio/alarm output. Its small body and discreet design, as well as its vandal-resistant exterior make it perfect for use in sensitive areas that may be within reach, and its weather-proof housing make it a great camera for use indoors or outdoors.

The camera comes equipped with a ring of IR LEDs, which provide it with up to 10m of illumination at night and ensure effective recording around the clock. It also has on-board WDR settings that can be adjusted via Hikvision's control software and provide 120dB of wide dynamic range, which makes it great even in challenging lighting conditions and guarantees you crystal-clear images.

The Hikvision DS-2CD2542FWD-I can be powered via PoE (power over ethernet), meaning that it supports power from a standard Cat5 or Cat6 network cable connected to a supported NVR or network switch. It also has an on-board slot for a MicroSD card up to 128GB, allowing you to either utilise it as a standalone camera or provide and additional secure backup against power-cuts or other network failures.

The camera is very easy to install and has three axis of adjustment meaning it can be positioned to view any given angle from its mount. The audio/alarm output lets you use it to trigger an alert should a particular scenario occur, for example perimeter breach or line-crossing. Coupled with the in-built microphone, the Hikvision DS-2CD2542FWD-I provides an excellent broad range of utilities for a very affordable cost.
