DS-2CD2032-I camera review
I will not write about analog security cameras. They are on the way out. Digital cameras are the way to go for a new security camera installation. I needed a two to four camera solution for my home property. I decided to test the HIKVISION IP camera
DS-2CD2032-I IP cameras. This camera is a 3 megapixel bullet camera. The street price is approximately $300 per camera.
Wow, no bulky wiring needed with digital cameras. Only one cat5e wire per camera required when you use a Power Over Ethernet or PoE switch. I used a TP-LINK TL-SG1008P PoE switch. Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) is approximately $100.00. Luckily, I had a older computer to use for the Digital Video Recorder.
The data line is concealed inside the electrical housing. It did raise the cost of the installation. But it looks much better and it’s protected from the elements.
To continue, I was extremely satisfied with the appearance of the installation. I pointed one camera at my door entrance. The other camera is pointed to my driveway where I park my car. The video quality is excellent day and night. My resolution was set to 30fps (1280 × 720) to save disk space. I am very satisfied with the camera performance both day and night.
