New HD Bullet Camera From Hiqview Has 10x Zoom Capabilities

Posted in Uncategorized on September 11, 2015 by zackduncan

The Hiqview Corporation released this year a new camera addition to its IP camera line in the form of the new motorized weatherproof bullet IP camera known as the HIQ-6391. This camera comes equipped with a 10x optical and 4x digital motorized zoom along with an IP66-rated weatherproof housing, allowing it to perform in the harshest of conditions.

This camera has also been designed within an all-IP architecture with a 1/2.7″ CMOS sensor, giving you full HD 2MP resolution at 30fps real-time. Like I mentioned earlier, there is a 10x optical zoom lens along with support for video compression of H.264 and MJPEG formats for multiple resolutions of Full HD, SXGA, WXGA, VGA, QVGA, and QCIF.

The WDR technology incorporated in this camera is also a huge benefit. Without it, someone standing in front of the sun with a strong backlight would be too dark to identify. The WDR technology uses different exposures for different objects to lower light contrast. As a result, the camera is able to reveal clear features of a person’s face, even with a strong backlight.

This security camera also offers the advanced functions of Smart Focus, Auto Focus, and Step Focus, which makes it the perfect, professional choice for outdoor surveillance applications. Smart Focus allows you to draw a square on an image in order to focus on a particular area to bring out clear images. Auto Focus automatically focuses on a moving object or a large object that occupies more than 50% of the area of the image. Step Focus offers you the ability to set up focus manually to nearby or distant areas whenever you need to. A built-in GUI allows these advanced imaging features to be easy, flexible and efficient when fine-tuning the focus of your camera.

Strong DNR technology allows this camera to easily remove image noise in image production, which can be caused by things like power interference, heat or dim light sources. When light goes down, it is hard for standard outdoor cameras to create clear images. The HIQ-6391 utilizes the latest IR technology in order to detect heat emitted from objects within the effective distance of the camera. The built-in IR LEDs are designed for up to 30 meters of light radiation and enable the camera to produce clear images 24/7.

Network configuration is quick and easy. The configuration tool offered by Hiqview automatically searches for the connected Hiqview cameras via internet to minimize any problems with network settings. In addition to that, Power over Ethernet (PoE) makes sure that your camera can be powered  through the same internet cable, which is an important feature where running additional cables may be difficult.

The HIQ-6391 is shipped with the VMS Hiqview software included and allows for online management of as many as 64 IP cameras in a single system. This camera is designed for day and night surveillance and is perfect for areas such as parking lots, entrances, lobbies, retail stores, shops, train stations, stairways, warehouses or even home surveillance.

A Bullet Camera In Every Business, On Every Street Corner?

Posted in Bullet Camera Review, Covert, Low Light, Uncategorized, What is a Bullet Cam, Wireless with tags , , , , , , on September 30, 2014 by thatoneguy7

Security and Surveillance technology are an ever booming market. In just about every major business in America today, you can find a security camera system or some type of surveillance technology. The market for it is huge. There will always be thieves and there will always be vandals. That is why there will always be new security cameras and technology being developed to combat the ever evolving ways of crime that people come up with. How many businesses actually use surveillance technology though? That number will never be exact as it is always growing. More and more businesses and people alike are seeing the importance of having security camera technology.

The Workplace

Keeping your place of business safe should just come as common sense to just about everyone. The only problem is, is that some business owners might view it as either too invasive or even too expensive. That just isn’t the case. There are too many pros that outweigh the cons in terms of that thought process. Both employees and customers alike want to feel that they are in a safe and appreciative environment. This will keep everyone happy and keep customers coming back (as long as the customer service remains optimal as well). It deters vandals and theft from both outsiders and employees alike. You find security camera systems in McDonald’s, car dealerships, retail stores, hospitals, police stations, and more. There’s clearly a reason for this. It’s all about monitoring and safety for everyone within the facility.

The Street Corners

Recently there was a game that came out called “Watch Dogs”. Not too go off on too much of a tangent, but the game took place in present day Chicago. In the game the character can hack into the multiple security cameras that line the streets. This part of the game is not fictitious. Chicago is a city that is very heavily monitored and actually does have security cameras on just about every street corner. It’s about detering crime and lowering the crime rate in general. Box cameras, weatherproof cameras, dome cameras, and yes, even bullet cameras are found throughout the city always on the watch. Some may see this as a “bit too much” but if the affects on crime are positive, can it really be seen as a negative? Cities and businesses alike use the cameras to their advantage while also doing their best to maintain certain privacies.

Is It Really Too Much?

There will always be that looming fear of “is big brother watching?”, but then again, the main purpose of the cameras are to monitor for crimes and keep individuals and products safe. There are still companies today that don’t utilize security cameras or any real type of surveillance equipment other than a bell on the door when you come in. That being said, not every business, home, or street corner is connected to a CCTV grid, and that makes those areas targets for vandalism, theft, and other crimes. The bullet camera, with its naturally small and sleek design, has always been one of the go to cameras in just about every security camera system. They’re easy to maneuver. They’re easy to hide. They almost always come equipped with IR capabilities to monitor in the dark.

The idea of having cameras everywhere can be a scary thought, because you never know who is on the receiving end of those feeds. All “big brother” thoughts aside though, one can’t deny the endless applications that come with the use of bullet cameras and other surveillance technology. It’s all about safety, lowing crime, and keeping you your business, home, and assets protected.

IQeye R5 Series Bullet Cameras From IQinVision

Posted in Low Light with tags , , , , , , on July 3, 2014 by zackduncan

IQinVision, one of the market leaders in high-performance HD megapixel IP cameras recently announced that it would be releasing its all new IQeye R5 Series of bullet cameras. The R5 Series bullet cameras are full-featured, multi-megapixel H.264 Main Profile indoor/outdoor bullet cameras. In addition to that, these cameras also have support for up to 3MP resolution, making these cameras versatile and able to provide multiple, individually-configured H.264 and MJPEG streams simultaneously.

These cameras also feature on-board storage as well as a built-in IR, making them perfect for retail, commercial, city and transportation applications. Other features that are included with the IQeye R5 Series are 30fps at HD720p and HD1080p, 20fps at 3MP and an IP66-rated outdoor housing.

There are also a host of applications that are available for the R5 Series. Some of these applications include IQfinder, IQmanager, IQevent, IQanalytics and Direct-to-Storage while the camera line is backed by the IQVision best-in-industry warranty of three years.

According to Executive Vice President and Vice President of Sales for IQinVision Rob Ledenko, “The new bullet cameras really round out our product offering nicely. They are versatile, high performance cameras, and they’re priced to be a competitive fir for a wide range of market applications.”

Bullet cameras have been the go-to system for lots of different applications. Businesses, schools, parking lots and other scenarios use bullet cameras due to their small size and ability to be installed virtually anywhere. In addition to that, most bullet cameras are weatherproof, meaning they are the perfect solution for outdoor surveillance as they can stand up in rain, snow, wind, dust or any other condition you throw at them.

Bullet cameras are also exceptionally good at night surveillance. Built-in IR LEDs are common in almost all bullet cameras, allowing you to record 24/7 day and night. In addition to that, some of these cameras have the ability to see as far as 300 feet in total darkness or farther depending on the amount of LEDs built-in.

Vandal-proof housing is also generally included in all bullet cameras as well. Not only are bullet cameras small enough to put out of reach but also, should someone try to tamper with them, the vandal-proof housing will stop them in their tracks.

With the ability to be put virtually anywhere, the small size, the day/night surveillance capabilities, the weatherproof housing and the ability to connect to apps and stream each camera individually it’s easy to see how bullet cameras, like the R5 Series, are one of the most popular products in modern surveillance.

There’s A Reason Why Bullet Cameras Are Consistently Used…

Posted in Covert, Low Cost, Low Light, Uncategorized, What is a Bullet Cam with tags , , , , , , on June 5, 2014 by thatoneguy7

There’s always a reason as to why we do the things we do. There’s always a purpose behind the choices we make. A method to our madness if you will. I’m not trying to come off as overly philosophical, more so just trying to make a point. When we choose a particular piece of technology over another, there’s always a reason for it. We’re not going to purposefully choose the worse device over the better one. At that point, you would be wasting your money and coming off as illogical. You can apply this to just about every device. Take a security camera system for example. You can have all the necessary recording software you need, but when it comes to the actual cameras, there is always comparisons to be had and decisions to be made.

All in all, there are plenty of choices that can be made that will meet your surveillance needs. There is one camera in particular, though, that many use; the bullet camera. Again, there’s a reason for this.

There is a lot that a bullet camera can offer the smart surveillance system shopper.

The bullet camera is a generally small camera that can be placed in various discreet locations, usually far enough out of reach to avoid vandalism. The entire reason you’re looking for a surveillance system is to stop things like vandalism anyway, right? These cameras are designed with a streamlined structure that allows them to be set up in places that most cameras couldn’t be placed in. Naturally, because of the design, this is where the camera gets its name. When you set up your security camera system, you want to be able to do it with the confidence that your cameras won’t be susceptible to vandalism. When you choose to have a bullet camera as part of you’re system, you get that confidence as they are easy to hide.

These cameras are also weather-proof. These are essentially the best cameras to have for outdoor surveillance. The typical box camera requires additional housing to the camera itself, and that can add to the overall cost of your security system. Additionally, bullet cameras are relatively cheap. Once placed outside, nothing short of a hurricane or tornado is going to stop this camera from monitoring what ever you want it to monitor.

If you’re looking for night time monitoring (who isn’t), you don’t need to worry about looking for another type of camera either. Most, if not all bullet cameras these days come with built in IR LEDs. Some of these IR bullet cameras can see up to 300 feet in complete darkness thanks to the number of Infrared LEDS that are packed into them. That’s the other sense of brilliance in the camera’s design. The lenses of these cameras are generally small, so that leaves more room to put the infrared LEDS in them. Obviously the more you have working together, the further the camera is able to see in the darkness.

The bullet camera is one of the most utilized cameras in any surveillance system, and with good reason. Between the weatherproof housing, the small size that can be utilized for proper and secluded placement, and the fact that almost all of them come with IR capabilities now, it’d be almost asinine to NOT have these in your security camera system.

Are You Trying To Decide Between Bullet Cameras And Dome Cameras For Outdoor Use?

Posted in Bullet Camera Review, Covert, Low Light, What is a Bullet Cam with tags , , , , , , , on May 8, 2014 by thatoneguy7

There are so many things to think about when you are deciding on a surveillance system and any possible accessories. One of the biggest things to consider when choosing everything for your surveillance system is the what types of cameras to use. You need to find out if the system itself is for indoor use or outdoor use. It may not seem like that big of a deal, but then again, that might be a much bigger deciding factor than you realize. Certain cameras are better suited for different environments, naturally.


So, you’ve done a little bit of research, but you still can’t decide which would be better for your outdoor surveillance system. You know you like the dome cameras, and you know that you’re a fan of the bullet camera as well. The next question you may have is which would be better.

Both of these cameras have their pros and cons, just like anything else in the world.

The bullet camera is designed to be a bit smaller and easier to use all around. They are pretty easy to install and readjust. Should you need to move your camera too a better position, there’s nothing getting in your way from moving it. Additionally, almost every bullet camera every comes with infrared (IR) LEDs built into them. IR is going to be a big deal for you, especially for night time monitoring. Since you are placing the camera outside, you’re going to want to have this camera work well in low light situations. Research the camera and see how far and how wide it’s FOV (Field Of View) while the IR function is operating. As long as it’s a pretty far view, this may be a big deciding factor. The casing around these cameras is almost always weatherproof as well. Since the outdoors can get a bit brutal depending on your area, weatherproof casing is basically a must. The downside to these is that they may be easily susceptible to vandalism and people can see which direction the camera is facing.

The dome camera uses its casing as its selling point. They use this casing to consider themselves “vandal proof,” basically the casing around the camera will be able to protect the camera itself. The casing of the dome camera can also be tinted, thus making it more difficult for potential criminals to view exactly where the camera is facing. Another fact to consider is that the wiring isn’t exposed for this camera, furthering it’s “vandal proof” claims. The downside to these cameras is that the tinting can affect the overall viewing capabilities at night. You would almost surely need to add lighting sources around the camera, but this would make people more aware of the camera itself. That, and dome cameras are frequently more expensive than bullet cameras.

All things considered, this is a pretty even match. You can read reviews all day long, but at the end of the day, you know what you are installing your surveillance system. You know what you are going to be looking for and looking to deter with these cameras. It would be best to research the cameras as much as possible, figure out what you need them for, and then decide for yourself!

The HDCVI Cylinder Camera Is A Camera You’re Going To Want On Your Surveillance System

Posted in Bullet Camera Review, Covert, Low Cost, Low Light with tags , , , , , , , , , on April 11, 2014 by thatoneguy7

It can be really hard to find good help these days, much less good technology. It’s hard to find the right tech to give you everything you need without giving you the things that you don’t need. Bullet cameras can be the same way. It’s difficult to find one with features that you know you’re going to need that will, at the same time, not keep any of the fluff that you don’t need.

Along with the IR capabilities, the camera comes standard with a 1/3″ 1 megapixel progressive scan CMOS image sensor. The image sensor ensures that you’ll get a good HD picture.

Looking For A Weatherproof Bullet Camera?

Posted in Bullet Camera Review, Low Light with tags , , , , , , on February 14, 2014 by thatoneguy7

If you live in the northern part of the U.S., you may have become very aware of all of the snow that we have been getting recently. This ridiculous weather can cause quite a bit of trouble for travel conditions, as the news has shown. However, it can also become a burden on some of your technology. Satellites, internet connections, and more can be negatively affected by this inclement weather. For some homes and businesses, dealing with crazy weather like this can be slightly nerve-wracking when thinking of their security camera systems. Not all tech is weatherproof, and that is a fact. However, there may be a new bullet camera for those who want to avoid worrying about the weather year round.

Take the new Greyfox F2287 weatherproof camera for a spin, and you may be able to put the worries of warranty coverage away.


This camera is designed for indoor and outdoor use for, virtually, any home or business. Even though it is mainly suited for residential security use, it is never a bad idea to add one to your business’s security system. Since the housing of the camera is weatherproof, it can be installed outside by doorways or windows that need to be monitored all without the worry. In terms of mounts, this camera can me mounted via a round wall mount or a Cat 5 camera mounting wall plate. The Cat 5 wall plate is designed for the camera itself, and includes RJ-45 output and input jacks that can be installed into a single gang box. Naturally, the mounts come with adjustable tilt and swivels so that the camera can be aimed in any direction needed. Once the desired angle has been met, the angle can be locked so that it remains.

The camera also comes standard with IR (as if every camera shouldn’t, right?). 12 infrared LEDs surround the camera lens, allowing for illumination in low-light to no-light situations. Perfect for night time surveillance in the areas you need to have covered at home, or at your business. The IR illumination expands to a 30 foot range. While it may not be the longest range of IR, it still allows for enough viewing to spot anything that may be suspicious. The F2287 camera resolution rate comes in at 420 lines, so while it may not be the highest resolution, it can still definitely get the job done. The 92 degree viewing angle, coupled with the angle locking mounts, means that you should be able to get a very good view of whatever you need to keep track of.

The camera does offer a microphone attachment. The only catch is that it must be hooked into a single gang wall mount. The microphone can then be plugged in, and mounted via the same wall mount as the camera. Just make sure you know about the restrictions of audio surveillance before installing the camera, with the microphone option, in your business, should you choose to do so.

It may not be the most incredible bullet camera out on the market, but the weatherproof casing does give it reason to be considered for your security system. And, as always, if you are on the fence about it, it never hurts to try before you buy!
