Uniview Deep Learning Camera Tested

By Ethan Ace and Rob Kilpatrick, Published Jul 14, 2020, 01:33pm EDT

Uniview's intrusion analytics have performed poorly in our shootouts. Now, they have released their Prime Series Deep Learning cameras, with an "enhanced detection algorithm", but how well do these new models work?

IPVM Image

We bought and tested the IPC264SA-DZK, examining:

  • How accurate are person and vehicle classification?
  • Does it detect people when crawling, running, or obstructed?
  • Does it false alarm on common outdoor sources?
  • Does it ignore common indoor sources of false alarms?
  • How far can it detect people?
  • Does it integrate to third-party VMSes?
