Hikvision - No.1 video surveillance solution provider in global video surveillance industry. The company launched a new brand - Ezviz offers cost-effective network cameras to meet the needs of rapid growing oversea video surveillance market. In this article, we introduce you the EZVIZ C6, which is the latest network pan & tilt camera from Hikvision. Currently, this camera is only available in China domestic market The current selling price for this camera is approximate US$93, additionally consumers can choose to use Ezviz cloud storage plan.
The helmet look design makes this camera become outstanding among other similar cameras in the market. This camera gives you 360 degree video surveillance from your smartphone. Users can use smartphone to block video stream, meanwhile camera ball will rotate back to the helmet to hide. Additionally, the helmet design enables camera to rotate maximum 140 degrees vertically, traditional indoor pan & tilt camera only supports max.120 degree tilt rotation.
On the front housing of C6, there is a microphone, it has three main functions: monitoring sound, 2-way audio intercom, sound direction recognition. Well, you may not have high expectation to this microphone, it just works fine in complete quiet room. When the surrounding is noisy, the camera can't recognize the direction of sound source.
In terms of its hardware design, C6 utilizes 1.3MP 1/3" progressive scan CMOS image sensor to deliver 1280x960p HD video. The camera is equipped with a megapixel 4MM F2.2 fixed lens which offer approximate 92°wide viewing angle. It also adopts other imaging technologies including 3D digital noise reduction, D-WDR (digital wide dynamic range). Moreover, the camera allows user to change image brightness, contrast, saturation etc.
Actually, I was impressed by its automatic ISO function. For example, making the camera aim at window, wait for a 1-2 seconds, the camera can automatically adjust its ISO to capture clear images, also when it works at night, although it has limited IR illumination coverage, the camera can automatically adjust its ISO to improve the brightness of overall image.
EZVIZ C6 also comes with Hikvision smart video analytics design, it supports motion detection, and smart sound detection. It can send push notification or email with snapshot to your smartphone. Similar to other indoor network cameras, C6 supports IEEE802.11b/g/n WiFi connection, built-in microSD/TF card slot for up to 64G on-board video storage. Lastly, it has infrared leds furnished around the lens to provide infrared illumination (max 10 meter IR range) when working in low light or complete darkness environment.
In addition to controlling camera via smartphone App, EZVIZ C6 also allows user to control via Wechat App, which is very convenient for Chinese users. In order to maintain high data security, user can choose to bundle devices or encrypt video. Lastly, this camera is super easy to setup and install. Although it's expensive than other network cameras, this camera is worth to have, since it provides crystal high quality images just like other Hikvision products. It's the ideal network camera for indoor video surveillance applications.
