This was posted about a month ago at £399.99 and got heat of 207°.

Then in that thread, someone mentioned it had dropped even more to £349.99 and, in reading that thread (I am on the lookout for a cctv deal) I clicked through and saw it was now £329.99 which is even better.

Some details from the site:

  • 1/2.8" progressive scan CMOS
  • Up to 2.0 megapixel
  • 2.8 mm fixed focal lens
  • Up to 30 m IR range
  • Dual stream
  • Digital WDR (Wide Dynamic Range)
  • 3D DNR (Digital Noise Reduction)
  • PoE (Power over Ethernet)
  • IP67
  • Mobile monitoring via Hik-Connect or iVMS-4500

Interested to get peoples feedback on this but I think it looks good for the price.

Thank you

I’m in the market for some POE cameras, are these any good?


The cameras are called IPC-B120, some decent reviews for the price. Check some youtube footage and decide if its good enough for yourself.

Bought seperately, the cams are worth around £40 each, the recorder around £75-100, wd purple 2tb £60 + cables~£20. So there is a decent saving, the question is do you want/need 6 cameras and whether you'd want to invest in better/newer ones. The nvr is also capped at 4mp resolution recording and h264 encoding which effects storage, both of these limit installing better cameras in the future, a quick search seems to suggest hikvision no longer releases firmware updates for this nvr

2.0 megapixels... thats low. But hikvision for this price.. hmmm
I have 4 megapixels hikvision cams on my house and been using it for a couple of years now.

I have preview on my phone by press of one button (assigned hikvision app to Bixby button on note9)

I'm guessing Hiwatch is their more consumer level option at a lower price.

Probably better off going with their proper cameras if you don't need 6 cameras.

You looking at £105-£130 per camera plus NVR

Agreed.

I've installed Hikvisions 4k UHD domes at two premises now and the quality is superb with a 2.8mm lens even if you're playing back and you need to zoom in, theres minimal loss of clarity. If it's a long term solution and you want a better product, put a bit more money in and you'll have a fantastic set up.

I see lots of footage like this of predators walking up the house at night and none of it can ever be used by the police as all you really capture is the top of people’s heads, simply put your camera is positioned far too high. You might want to consider placing one much lower unless you already have of course
Hikvision?

Can you mix and match with these? I have the hikvision 3mp bullets. Wonder if these are compatible in the 7600 series NVR??

I'm sorry, but you cannot use that picture of my husband without his express prior consent..............
If you want decent CCTV then buy proper HikVision, not HiWatch (which is now discontinued). I would recommend turrets/dome cams too unless you really want everyone to know your have CCTV, in which case buy bullets. HikVision do cams in black too so can blend in to black downpipes, i'm not a believer that CCTV is a deterrent, more that if you have CCTV then you have something worth stealing, so i'd rather them be discrete.

POE is easy to fit yourself, the only difficulty is routing the ethernet cables.

Correct, cameras should be just above ground window level, high enough so you can't reach them and low enough so you can get faces. Totally pointless putting them at roof level. I have one above my garage door, someone tried to open it 2 weeks ago and he looked straight at the camera, local PC recognised him and warrant issued for arrest as he was on parole.

Actually you should have both - a high one to see the area for all activity and a low one to try and see faces. If your area is small then maybe just a low one is enough.
I just need box.co.uk to do an ip kit with 4 or less cameras, and black dome or turrets. Everything is white which looks awful and stands out against brickwork.

Reviewing the images on youtube, it looks like it is worth paying extra for 4k.

Can you not use a power line adapter with an injector?

In what context? The camera needs to be wired to a recorder (NVR), HikVision NVR's have POE so you just need Cat5 from NVR to camera. If you want the camera to be stand alone (with SD card) you can just use a power cable.
