Seeing is Believing: New Full-Colour CCTV Cameras Illuminate the Night

In the ever-evolving landscape of security technology, staying ahead of the curve is crucial. Imagine a CCTV system that not only captures footage high quality footage in low-light conditions but also delivers full-colour video. Sounds impressive, right? For so long this has been the holy grail of CCTV, and now it’s a reality with the likes of Hikvision's Smart Hybrid Light Technology, and similar technologies from other suppliers. In this article however, we’ll look at the what Hikvision has brought to market.

Bringing the Night to Life

Hikvision's Smart Hybrid Light Technology can transform the dark of night into a vivid, full-colour spectacle. Traditional CCTV cameras often struggle in low-light environments, rendering grainy black-and-white images that leave much to be desired. But with this groundbreaking technology, you can now enjoy the benefits of full-colour video surveillance even when the sun goes down.

So, what makes Hikvision's Smart Hybrid Light Technology a game-changer? Let's dive into the key features that set it apart.


So, what makes Hikvision's Smart Hybrid Light Technology a game-changer? Let's dive into the key features that set it apart.

1. Ultra-Low Light Sensing

The heart of this technology lies in its ultra-low light sensing capabilities. By harnessing advanced sensors and imaging algorithms, Hikvision cameras can capture and process the faintest traces of light. This means you'll get crisp and clear footage in situations where other cameras might leave you in the dark.

2. Smart Light Supplement

Hikvision's Smart Hybrid Light doesn't just rely on existing light sources; it actively supplements them. When ambient light levels dip, the system intelligently activates its built-in auxiliary light source. This ensures that every detail remains visible, no matter how dim the surroundings.

3. Reduced False Alarms

With improved image clarity, false alarms are significantly reduced. The system can more accurately distinguish between actual threats and harmless events, saving you time and resources that might otherwise be wasted on unnecessary responses.

4. Enhanced Security 24/7

Whether it's a dimly lit alleyway or a pitch-black parking lot, Hikvision's technology keeps your property secure around the clock. Criminals won't find refuge in the cover of darkness when you have full-colour video surveillance at your disposal.

5. Cost-Effective Solution

Investing in a security system that works flawlessly day and night is a smart move for any New Zealand business. Hikvision's Smart Hybrid Light Technology offers a cost-effective solution by potentially eliminating the need for additional lighting infrastructure, and thus reducing your overall security expenses.

6. Enhanced detail

With other CCTV systems the grainy black and white footage captured at night often left you with little detail to identify those captured. But with Hikvision’s new system, personal appearance, clothing colour and even finer details can be captured and used for identity purposes.

7. Lighting modes to suit your needs

Security cameras featuring the Smart Hybrid Light technology allow you to easily switch between three lighting modes, suiting virtually any need or application.

  • IR Mode - The IR light is always on, and video imaging remains black and white (at night).
  • White Light Mode - White light is always on, and the camera captures colour imaging 24/7.
  • Smart Mode - In this mode, when there is no target in the area, the camera uses only the IR light, which is invisible to the human eye and eco-friendly. When a target appears, the camera automatically triggers the white light, resulting in vivid colour imaging with clear detail. In Smart Mode, you can benefit from overall security and adequate agility.

This technology is a real game changer. With features like ultra-low light sensing and intelligent light supplementation, this CCTV system offers you enhanced security and cost-effectiveness. Say goodbye to grainy black-and-white images and embrace the clarity and detail that full-colour video brings to the table. Your security deserves nothing less than the best, day and night.
