Our first VMD Camera Shootout included Avigilon, Axis, Bosch and Sony. Members enjoyed it and asked for more manufacturers to be tested. This test includes 3 new manufacturers - Dahua, Hikvision and Samsung, building on our original camera test reports:
We followed the same testing approach as our first test series, starting with a simple indoor conference room:
Moving on to a more complex open office area:
And finally, an outdoor area with moving vegetation and headlights on a nearby road:
Our tests looked to answer the following key questions:
- What issues most commonly cause false positives?
- Whose VMD was best at rejecting these events?
- How did detection range vary from manufacturer to manufacturer?
- Can settings be optimized for better detection without increasing false alerts and vice versa?
