Dahua Active Deterrence Camera

Product Profile

System Overview
Active Deterrence Series provides multi-dimensional system that links video with audio, information and alarm to verify potential risks. Active deterrence camera can actively warn off intruders with light and speaker, alert users in real-time with alarm-over-coax, and provide visual verification with HDCVI video.


Active Deterrence
Active deterrence is to warn off intruders actively with white light and speaker even before users are aware of the incidence. Once an intrusion is detected, the white light will turn on and the speaker will buzzer to alert the intruder. The white light can be set to normally on or flash, the content of speaker is configurable.

HDCVI technology inherits the born feature of simplicity from traditional analogue surveillance system, making itself a best choice for investment protection. HDCVI system can seamlessly upgrade the traditional analogue system without replacing existing coaxial cabling. The plug and play approach enables high definition video surveillance without the hassle of configuring a network.

Smart Illumination
The camera is designed with IR illumination for best lowlight performance. Smart IR is a technology to ensure brightness uniformity in B/W image under low illumination. Dahua’s unique Smart IR adjusts to the intensity of camera's infrared LEDs to compensate for the distance of an object, and prevents IR LEDs from overexposing images as the object come closer to the camera.

4 Signals over 1 Coaxial Cable
HDCVI technology supports 4 signals to be transmitted over 1 coaxial cable simultaneously, i.e. video, audio*, data and power. Dual-way data transmission allows the HDCVI camera to interact with the XVR, such as sending control signal or triggering alarm. Moreover, HDCVI technology supports PoC for construction flexibility.

* Audio input is available for some models of HDCVI cameras.

Long Distance Transmission
HDCVI technology guarantees real-time transmission at long distance without any loss. It supports up to 700m transmission for 2MP/5MP/8MP HD video via coaxial cable, and up to 300m via UTP cable.

* *Actual results verified by real-scene testing in Dahua's test laboratory.

Protection (IP67, wide voltage)
IP67: The camera passes a series of strict test on dust and soak. It has dust-proof function, and the enclosure can works normal after soaking in 1 m deep water for 30 minutes.

Wide voltage: The camera allows ±30% (for some power supplies) input voltage tolerance (wide voltage range), and it is widely applied to outdoor environment with instable voltage.
