By: Ethan Ace and Rob Kilpatrick, Published on May 08, 2019

Hikvision is expanding its 'deep learning' offerings with a new camera series called 'DeepinView' claiming false alarm reduction and improved accuracy.

We bought a DeepinView 1080p bullet camera (DS-2CD7A26G0-IZHS) and tested in multiple scenes for over two weeks 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?
  • Face detection performance: Did face detection work reliably in full light and low light at multiple angles?
  • Ease of setup: How difficult or time-consuming was setup and optimization?
  • Vs. competitive analytics: How did DeepinView compare to camera analytics from our IP Camera Analytics Shootout - Avigilon, Axis, Bosch, Dahua, Hanwha, Hikvision, Uniview?
  • What components does it use? Ambarella, Huawei, Intel, NVIDIA, others?
  • What difference does firmware version make?
