Dahua Adds 5MP Smart Motion Detection IP Cameras to Lite Series
The SMD N53A series cameras can be paired with Dahua N52 and N54 Series NVRs with upgraded firmware to take advantage of the complete SMD solution.
IRVINE, Calif. — Dahua Technology has released a new selection of 5-megapixel IP cameras in its cost-efficient Lite Series, incorporating smart motion detection (SMD) technology for ease of set-up, improved accuracy and fewer false alarms, according to an announcement.
SMD uses an advanced algorithm to differentiate human and vehicular shapes within a scene and send alarms only when a person or vehicle is detected. SMD can be enabled with a single click, allowing the camera to analyze all motion within its view. The camera then filters motion-activated objects depending on what the user wants to see, making searches faster, the announcement states.
“Compared with traditional motion detection where lights, animals, rain, and tree movement tend to cause false alarms, Dahua’s SMD feature gives the user highly accurate motion detection with fewer false alarms. No more annoying alarms with useless information,” says Jennifer Hackenburg, senior product marketing manager, Dahua.
The SMD N53A series cameras can be paired with Dahua N52 and N54 Series NVRs with upgraded firmware to take advantage of the complete SMD solution. With this solution, users can tailor real-time push notifications according to what’s relevant to them and conduct quick target searches based on object classification, date and time. The SMD feature will expand to other models later this year.
Quick Target Search, a playback feature, extracts and classifies images of humans and vehicles from video data, making it easy for users to review and retrieve historical information. The SMD cameras are well-suited for environments where limited resources mean fewer onsite security guards.
The SMD N53A Lite Series offers fixed and vari-focal options in eyeball, dome and bullet-style form factors. The cameras are said to include additional, advanced features that further maximize users return on investment (ROI), such as Starlight technology for ultra low-light scenes, True Wide Dynamic Range (120dB), integrated IR, and perimeter protection for customized intrusion detection and tripwire functionality.
Additionally, the Smart H.265+ codec reduces bandwidth and storage requirements without compromising image details.
“The new SMD cameras represent leading-edge technology that truly reduce false alarms and provide peace of mind,” adds Hackenburg. “We’re pleased to be able to provide SMD based on customer needs and help them bring additional value to the end users.”
