Hikvision IR PTZ Tested

By: Ethan Ace, Published on Mar 07, 2016

Hikvision continues to break low cost barriers, now with a 1080p IP IR PTZ for under $800 online, the DS-2DE5220I-AE, half the price of past models. 

We bought one of these new models to see if this new low price comes with tradeoffs, tracking subjects at ranges over 500' day and night to compare to other IR PTZs from our tests, including the Bosch Autodome 5000 IR, FLIR DNZ, and Dahua

Nice report. Looks like a good value.

One question: The Hik cannot zoom in as far as the others, but it also looks like it can't zoom out as far either, yes/no?

Please add metric systems to your reports - important for us living more than 5000' from Hawaii

Note: Imperialists like myself use the ' to denote feet. :)

It's 5066 miles from Maine to Hawaii, and they figured it out.

In Bosch camera there is a profile call HD bandwith optimized, not default. This improve/reduce the bandwith cunsumption. Thx

Just got one of these for a client - nice so far. Our environment is pretty harsh - salt & sun - we'll see how this fares.

The cam looks good for the price. One downside is that the Lens / IR LED area cannot be truly vandal proof. I did not see any IK ratings on the Hikvision / Bosch datasheet. But if that is not a requirement for critical infrastructure, the cam is solid for the price.
