IP Camera Analytics Shootout - Avigilon, Axis, Bosch, Dahua, Hanwha, Hikvision, Uniview

By: IPVM Team, Published on Jul 30, 2018

Video analytics are hot again. But whose analytics really work?

IPVM bought and tested Avigilon, Axis, Bosch, Dahua, Hanwha and Hikvision cameras, focusing on their core intrusion / people detection analytics.

analytics shootout-updated 2

First, we tested each analytics separately, see individual reports below:

Now, in this report, we cover:

  • The best, average and worst performers overall
  • The top 2 best performers compared in detail
  • The weaknesses of the average and worst performers
  • How the competitors resisted outdoor false alerts (e.g., foliage, small animals, shadows/lights, rain)
  • How the competitors handled indoor false alerts (i.e., shadows, , ights and flashes)
  • Who delivered the greatest range (ranking pixel density / PPF requirements)
  • What specific detection issues each analytic had
  • Who was better or worse at configuration and calibration
  • How VMSes supported (or not) these cameras analytic events

We start with a 5-minute video screencast that overviews and explains the rankings:
