Hikvision LPR Camera Tested

By: IPVM Team, Published on Mar 26, 2018

Hikvision has expanded into the LPR market, claiming up to 99% capture rates, 95% recognition rates at speeds up to 75mph  / 120kmh.

We bought and tested the Hikvision DS-2CD4A26FWD-IZHS8/P to see how it performs in real-world scenes and how accurate these accuracy claims are.

In this report, we examine:

  • Low speed/parking lot capture performance (5-15mph)
  • High speed/roadway capture performance (30+ mph)
  • Accuracy / performance
  • Capture issues (misreads, double reads, and missed captures)
  • Camera installation recommendations
  • Capture zone configuration
  • Plate search and export
  • VMS integration

And more. See our full results inside.
