Hikvision, the provider of innovative video surveillance products and solutions, announces the launch of its Security Radar intrusion detection solution. The solution uses cutting-edge Hikvision technology to accurately pinpoint the location and motion trail of up to 32 potential intruders per radar, even in the harshest weather conditions. Hikvision Security Radar is ideal for monitoring large, exposed spaces with harsh weather, and where the perimeter environment is too complex for deployment of only video surveillance cameras. Thanks to its reliability in all weathers, wide detection angle and ultra-accurate intruder detection capabilities, this cutting-edge solution is perfect for locations such as ports, airports and large open industrial areas. Accurate detection over a wide area Hikvision Security Radar can offer accurate detection over a wide angle of 100°, and up to a distance of 60mTraditional cameras or motion detectors such as Active Infrared and Video Motion Detection have limitations in pinpointing the exact location of a potential intruder related to their detection area. Hikvision Security Radar, however, can offer accurate detection over a wide angle of 100°, and up to a distance of 60m. Hikvision Security Radar uses digital beam-forming technology and intelligent analysis algorithms to accurately detect all target movements in all weather conditions, keeping false alarms to a minimum. What’s more, IP67 rating gives peace of mind that the hardware itself is all-weather approved. Visual verification of the intruder Hikvision Security Radar can also link with as many as four Hikvision PTZ dome cameras at once. This configuration will not only trigger an alarm when an intruder is detected – it will also trigger video recording, to help with visual verification of the intruder. Furthermore, the cameras and the radar can be installed in different locations. This Hikvision-patented video linking solution is unique, and enables users to view, accurately track and record multiple images of targets simultaneously, all while identifying their precise movements such as running, walking, crouching and crawling. Suitable for multiple applications Hikvision Security Radar is compatible with a variety of brackets, such as Bullet-PTZ brackets, for easy installationThe Hikvision Security Radar has multiple scene modes, making it suitable for a variety of applications. Shrub Mode, for instance, is best suited to areas surrounded by dense forest, as it will filter out false alarms such as shaking trees or heavy rain. Open-Area Mode is ideal for large, open, sensitive locations such as ports. And the Custom Mode enables users to fine-tune settings to suit their particular needs. Hikvision Security Radar is compatible with a variety of brackets, such as Bullet-PTZ brackets, for easy installation. It also supports Power over Ethernet (PoE) so users can just plug and play. Jiang Feng Zhi, Head of Hikvision’s alarms division says, “We are excited to bring our cutting-edge Security Radar solution to the market, and in such an innovative way. We hope that being able to accurately detect tens of intruders at once, day or night, and in all weather conditions, will bring incredible value to a whole variety of organisations globally.”

Intrusion-video surveillance tech synergy A synergy of intrusion and surveillance technologies enables end users to arm, disarm, view, record and interact with their security via one platform A synergy of intrusion and surveillance technologies enables end users to arm, disarm, view, record and interact with their security like never before via one platform; helping security professionals target new market applications to grow and maximise their business potential. “We are extremely pleased to deliver the next generation of fully integrated, one-platform alarm solutions that fuse world-leading innovation and proven intrusion technologies,” said Jiang Feng Zhi, Head of Hikvision’s alarm division. He continues: “A big advantage of the new Hikvision alarm range, is that it provides intrusion and video technologies that have been developed and designed to work in perfect harmony, to deliver market leading advantages and performance to our partners globally.” iVMS and Hikvision-Connect smart devices “By delivering one-platform systems via our iVMS and Hik-Connect software and apps, we are maximising the value and effectiveness of security systems to both installers and end users, through feature-rich and innovative products.” Comprising both wireless and wired systems, each support multiple communication paths to enhance flexibility and security. These can then be fitted with the extensive portfolio of wireless and wired Hikvision peripherals, to deliver security and life safety solutions across multiple markets.
Hikvision, a global provider of innovative security products and solutions, released news of the latest product range to hit its portfolio, the AXHub intruder alarm system. AXHub intruder alarm system Part of the Hikvision AX-Series, the brand-new wireless system caters to residential and small commercial applications by seamlessly connecting security and video on one-platform. “Hikvision is pioneering the one-platform revolution for security systems that enables HD video verification of events, remote control to arm and disarm the alarm, as well as the ability to switch between alarm system and video like never before,” said Jiang Feng Zhi, Head of Hikvision’s alarms division. Integration is at the core of the AXHub, utilising Cloud technology to combine intrusion and video like never before Video verification This advanced synergy of technologies is delivered in a small, compact and discreet panel that delivers multi-configuration methods, full control and setup via Hik-Connect smart device application and iVMS as well as video verification through revolutionary Intruder Verification as a Service (IVaaS). Integration is at the core of the AXHub, utilising Cloud technology to combine intrusion and video like never before. IVaaS Where other video verification methods on the market are reliant on sending low-quality static imagery to confirm events, IVaaS links previously separate video and intruder systems to one platform, providing a 7 second clip in the event of an alarm; 5 seconds pre-alarm, and 2 seconds post alarm. To achieve this, there are two options; via the cloud, or innovatively connecting up to two cameras directly to the AXHub for on-board video verification. Hikvision’s video and intrusion systems Hikvision’s video and intrusion systems seamlessly deliver video footage directly to the user through Hik-Connect or iVMS This enables Hikvision’s video and intrusion systems to seamlessly deliver video footage directly to the user through Hik-Connect or iVMS, or directly to a Central Monitoring Station (CMS). By delivering video to users or a CMS via email, smart device and desktop applications, they can switch to Full-HD live streams to verify action that can be taken much faster and more reliably in the event of an activation. Hik-Connect compatibility also allows full control of the system from anywhere; enabling users to remotely arm, disarm and monitor, as well as check history and receive push notifications of any events. Video and intruder systems “When one manufacturer provides the components for each part of the system, we don’t need to try and make things work together; we aren’t ‘integrating’ systems,” said Jiang. He continues: “The video and intruder systems are designed to work seamlessly with each other, and this is what we have achieved in the AXHub.” Compatible with any Hikvision video or intrusion device, this allows the ideal security solution to be fitted every time; covering every vantage point.

Smart and Turbo HD lines were explained at the meeting ‘It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.’ (C. Darwin). This quote was shared by Jiangfeng Zhi, President at Hikvision Europe BV to the audience during the two-day event dedicated to the first European distributors’ meeting held in Lisbon on April 23-24, 2015. Sales revenue of 2.82 billion USD in 2014 Hikvision has always been improving its products, marketing and positioning, seeking to anticipate future trends. This attitude led to a strategy adaptation, thus leading the Chinese company, sales leader in its own country, to expand overseas with excellent results – a sales revenue of 2.82 billion USD in 2014, 13,000 employees, 4800 R&D engineers. Aim at highly cooperative relationship with clients In the name of transparency and close relationships with partners, six special guests have been given a chance to speak, following the introduction of their respective Hikvision Sales Directors from Italy, North-West Europe, Central and Eastern Europe, UK, Israel and Russia. Each of these distributors shared their story and sense of belonging to the Hikvision family. Keen Yao, International Marketing Director, has frequently highlighted the importance of this event. It’s now clear that, given the strong position of product lines, the company should aim at strengthening a firm, trustworthy and highly cooperative relationship with its clients, that is to say the distributors throughout Europe. Hikvision global market share reached 11% in 2013 But there’s more, Hikvision does not only rely on the intuition of its managers and skills of distributors, but also focus on research to stay close to the market and customers. The Security & Fire Market Analyst Aaron Dale from IHS Research was invited to the event, and has brought figures and market trends for the forthcoming years. Given the drop in sales of analogue cameras, it is now confirmed the growth of second generation HD CCTV devices, such as TVI technology, and the increase in IP cameras’ shipments. In 2013, Hikvision global market share has reached 11%. Dale subsequently touched upon the topic of key vertical markets for Europe. A special attention has to be paid to residential and consumer markets that will eventually involve both traditional video surveillance systems and Home Monitoring/Smart Home Video Surveillance. The two-day event organised at Xabregas Palace in Lisbon A charming Gala Dinner organised at Xabregas Palace in Lisbon has been the turning point of these two days: an occasion for networking and assisting at the awarding ceremony of distributors who have been invited on stage to receive recognition for their growth performance, technical support to clients or even the long-term relationship with Hikvision. The second day has then been focusing on in-depth presentations on technologies and products. Smart and Turbo HD lines have been thoroughly explained. That’s also because, together with a huge brand awareness activity, the company is aiming at achieving the “product-range awareness”. This strategy will be even more visible on the upcoming security exhibitions, road shows and events.
