If you’re looking to secure your home, investing in an IP CCTV camera is a good idea. These cameras have been on the market for a long time, but the early models had poor image quality. Today, 4K versions are available, which record what’s going on in your property in higher resolution than many TV channels – so you can watch your property from afar, and see clearly everything that is happening.
Popular 4K CCTV Cameras
Here, we list two of our favourite 4K cameras for home use. These cameras are easy to use, produce good quality images, and are affordably priced.
Hikvision 4K DS-2CD2385G1-I
There are a number of CCTV cameras to choose from. Take the Hikvision DS-2CD2385G1-I. This is a turret camera that records in 4K at 20 frames per second, with a 2.8mm fixed lens and 120dB WDR. This camera is a popular choice, with Darkfighter Technology to provide clear images. The good thing about this camera is that it is easy to set up, and the night vision quality works well.
Priced at under £120, this is a nice budget camera for those who want something that ‘just works’.
QVIS Turret Camera
The QVIS-V 4K 8 Megapixel camera also records in 4K and has a 2.8mm fixed lens. It has IR that works up to 30metres and an eyeball lens. This IP TV camera works with VIP-RING-03, and it relies on the same technology that commercial enterprises such as schools and stores rely on. This reliable, high-quality camera features a metal casing and the housing that is waterproof up to IP66. The housing is white, which means that it will blend in well in most properties, looking just like a simple burglar alarm.
Also affordably priced, at under £170, this camera offers performance, durability and reliability in a relatively low-cost package.
Which Should You Choose?
The two cameras listed above are our top picks for those who want affordably priced 4K CCTV cameras with IP features. Our first choice is QVIS. This is a more durable camera with very good image quality and an IR feature.
If you are shopping for an IP 4K CCTV camera, this means that you care about security, and you want something that will give you peace of mind that your home is always ‘covered’. You don’t want to invest in a camera only to find that the connection drops or is unreliable, or that the images are not clear when you need them to be.
Ease of use is important, but reliability is essential too. Both of these cameras can connect to a video monitoring system using secure connections so that the images aren’t easy to intercept or tamper with. Both produce 4K images too, but the strong housing, waterproof nature and 30M IR range of the QVIS set it apart from the Hikvision model, and make it a clear choice for homeowners who take the security of their property seriously. You really do get what you care for in the world of security.
