Hikvision DeepinMind 2019 Test

By: Rob Kilpatrick, Published on Jun 06, 2019

In 2018, Hikvision's DeepinMind AI NVR performed terribly, recognizing vehicles, animals, and other objects as humans, misclassifying demographics, completely missing humans in the scene and more issues.

Now, after a year of firmware updates, Hikvision claims significant improvements in human detection and more accurate intrusion performance.

We tested the latest firmware on the iDS9632NXI-I8/16S DeepinMind NVR we bought for our original tests to see how it performs, examining:

  • False alert performance: What did and did not cause false alerts?
  • Intrusion detection accuracy: Did it miss valid people or vehicles in the scene in multiple conditions?
  • Ease of setup: How difficult or time-consuming was setup and optimization?
  • Vs. competitive analytics: How did DeepinView compare to Avigilon's self-learning camera analytic cameras?
