ESP continually invests in its CCTV range to enhance its products, harness the latest technologies and broaden its offer to satisfy different project sizes and requirements. The latest development of the category sees the launch of a brand new 24/7 Colour IP CCTV range, which will take ESP’s CCTV offering to another level.
When it comes to CCTV security, colour-related information can play a vital role in identifying the details of activities, particularly in the hours of darkness. Conventional cameras with infrared lighting will only provide black and white images for night-time monitoring. This can result in people or vehicles, for example, appearing blurred and blending into the background, making it difficult to discern crucial elements. ESP’s new 24/7 colour CCTV range will provide sharp detail, in colour, day or night.
The new 24/7 Colour IP CCTV range is designed to offer superior, reliable and straightforward installation solutions for a range of applications from domestic through to larger and more complex commercial projects. The range will sit alongside ESP’s established CCTV range, which comprises of the HDView IP PoE 5MP range, designed for larger and more complex commercial projects, and the Rekor IP PoE 2MP range, which is tailored for the domestic market.
There are 18 individual products that make up the new 24/7 Colour IP CCTV range. This includes 12 cameras offering 2MP, 5MP and 8MP resolutions, and each one is available in a choice of dome or bullet camera designs and in a white or grey finish. There are six different NVRs available including a four channel NVR in the Rekor IP collection. The HDView IP PoE range consists of 8MP NVRs with a broad range of channel options available – four, eight, 12, 16, 32 and 6. There is also a number of two and four camera kits available in the Rekor IP 24/7 range, with a choice of dome or bullet camera design options and a white or grey finish.
Lights, camera, action
The main features in the new range are in the cameras themselves due to their ‘24/7’ colour functions. The cameras use low light image sensors, which are able to use background light to produce a colour image in reduced light environments. This means that individuals and vehicles, for example, can be identified more clearly at night or where light settings are low. If the background light is insufficient for the low light image sensors to produce a colour image, the white LEDs on the cameras have the facility to activate by virtual line crossing and perimeter intrusion set by the user.
All cameras have an IP67 rating for external use. They are equipped with infrared LED’s, which are the default mode when the white LED’s are not in activation mode. This ensures that the white LEDs are not on constantly, which will be unwanted by the majority of users. The cameras also include a discreet microphone and speaker for a two-way audio function, which is controlled via the ESP IP PRO app.
By offering a selection of 2MP, 5MP and 8MP cameras, ESP believes this comprehensive offer will appeal across a broad range of installation sizes and requirements.
The main feature of the NVRs in the new 24/7 Colour IP CCTV systems is that they offer 8MP recording. In other words, they offer support for high resolution cameras in record, playback and live view modes. With a choice of four to 64 channel NVRs available, ESP is providing a breadth of NVR capability to support a range of applications from small to large.
Other features and benefits include:
- 250 PoE function. PoE models provide greater flexibility to the installer by supporting cameras up to 250m, resulting in the need for fewer additional power supplies and PoE switches required for large cable runs.
- Pre-installed surveillance hard drive. Unlike standard PC hard drives, surveillance drives are designed to operate and handle data recording continuously.
- Intelligent record options such as line crossing and perimeter detection. This offers a flexible choice on what triggers the system to record, resulting in more critical recordings and reduces wasted recorded footage.
There are eight Rekor IP 24/7 kits providing all the 24/7 colour features in a convenient kit form. There is a four-channel, two camera kit version available as well as a four-camera option. Both are offered in a choice of dome or bullet camera designs and in a white or grey finish. The kits come with cable supplied and a pre-installed surveillance hard drive.
