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?
