Provision-ISR IP Cameras Tested

By Derek Ward, Published Feb 15, 2021, 10:44am EST

Provision-ISR bills itself as an Israeli alternative and positions its new 'case designs' as a differentiating feature. But how good is it and is it really their own? Our test results show it is not.

IPVM Image

IPVM bought and tested two Provision-ISR IP cameras, the DI-340IPS-28 and DI-340IPE-28 to see how they perform. Inside, we examine:

  • What China company is supplying these cameras and how does Provision-ISR differ?
  • How does image quality compare in full light (~300 lux), low light (~2 lux)?
  • How do cameras perform in the dark with IR on?
  • How does it perform in WDR scenes?
  • How do they compare to Hikvision's low cost Value Series models?
  • How well does it integrate to common third-party VMSes?
  • How does bandwidth compare in day and night scenes?
