What to expect from Hikvision’s new PT-Series Cameras

What to expect from Hikvision’s new PT-Series Cameras
The cameras are simple to install, easy to use, and able to cover a wide range of security scenarios based on the ability to turn on two axes to keep security incidents within the field of view.
Hikvision has launched a new range of PT-Series pan and tilt cameras to meet the needs of small and medium-sized businesses. This means the cameras are simple to install, easy to use, and able to cover a wide range of security scenarios based on the ability to turn on two axes to keep security incidents within the field of view.

Hikvision PT-Series Cameras

Hikvision PT-Series Cameras is the new camera series. PT Cameras use a motor to move vertically and horizontally. The motorized panning and tilting function can be used with the mobile APP, enabling users to get greatly expanded video coverage, including areas that were previously 'hidden' from fixed cameras.

The difference between PT and PTZ

There's only one letter of difference between them. In terms of functionality, the main difference is that PT Cameras have slightly scaled down features compared to the PTZ Cameras. For example, the PT Cameras offer basic rotation for a full view of security and tend to have 0x – 4x optical zoom capabilities, which is typically perfect for SMB settings and budgets. On the other hand, PTZ Cameras offer more advanced and comprehensive features, making them ideal for enterprises and public organizations with larger-scale or more demanding security requirements.

Recommended application scenarios

PT Cameras come in different forms, such as PT dome cameras, PT bullet cameras, PT turret cameras and others. This means there are models suitable for multiple settings and scenarios, including residential dwellings, small shops, restaurants, small factories, small farms, and other kinds of small and medium-sized operations. Where these cameras are applied depends on the user's requirements in terms of how cameras should look in that particular setting.

Advantage for SMB customers

First, the installation of the traditional fixed camera tends to be complicated and time consuming. In addition, fixed cameras are unable to turn flexibly, resulting in a limited vision. The PT-Series addresses these challenges. Featuring a versatile bracket, PT Cameras allow installers to mount the camera easily with no need to adjust the viewing angle on site. This minimizes installers' efforts and reduces cost for SMB customers. Besides, SMB customers can adjust the camera angle from their mobile device using the Hik-Connect app, giving them a much more convenient experience. They can also check live video feeds, get event notifications, communicate remotely with two-way audio, and more. All these features make security more engaging for them, while also helping them to see the big picture with a much broader field of vision.

How to choose the right PT Camera

The PT Cameras solve users' needs with "motion" capabilities, but they may also offer capabilities such as ColorVu and AcuSense to meet customers' specific needs. For example, customers who need full-color video imaging with additional motion function can choose the PT Camera with ColorVu technology, and those who want a camera that can distinguish between humans, vehicles and other innocent moving objects such as pets or falling leaves may opt for a PT Camera with embedded AcuSense technology. 

Additional protection measures for PT Cameras

To provide better waterproofing performance, we have optimized the structure of PT products, drawing on our experience of designing highly resilient traditional dome cameras. The waterproof and dustproof performance of PT-Series cameras complies with the IP66 water and dust-resistance standard, making them suitable for both indoor and outdoor environments.
