This 5 x Camera Hikvision ColorVu 8MP (4K) IP CCTV System comes installed in your home or small business in London, Essex, Hertfordshire or Kent by our professional in-house installers.

This is part of our specialist range for those wanting a true colour image solution, even during darkness. True end-to-end 4K ultra-high-resolution solution, providing users with 4K monitoring, recording, and playback in full colour all the time. The image does not go black and white at night like conventional IR based CCTV systems, thus providing you with a full colour image 24/7.

Hikvision ColorVu Cameras’ powerful ability to capture details in low lighting comes from two specific breakthroughs in hardware technologies: advanced lenses and high-performance sensors. Coupled with a supplemental light for extremely dark scenarios, ColorVu cameras guarantee video with colourful details when you need them.

Hikvision ColorVu Camera lenses also feature Broad-Band Anti-Reflection (BBAR) Coating and Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) Optical glass, to reduce light flare and efficiently reproduce an image’s sharpness and colour saturation. These technologies effectively overcome the kind of key information that gets blocked by a light flare.

The ColorVu Cameras’ high-sensitivity is designed for surveillance applications where high resolution color images are required even in ultra-low light environments. Hikvision ColorVu Cameras sensors demonstrate an extraordinary photovoltaic conversion efficiency. They employ an advanced sensor technology – a new light-collection structure that vastly improves the utilization of light. Tests show ColorVu cameras continually provide colorful, sharp images right down to the lowest light levels. At the same time, their self-adapting 3D DNR algorithm on ISP guarantees high imaging quality.

In addition, extreme light conditions are taken into consideration in the design process. ColorVu cameras are equipped with warm supplemental light, so when there is no light source whatsoever – even starlight or street lights – they can guarantee colorful imaging. This feature provides environmentally-friendly, soft, warm lighting, reducing any harsh discoloration of the object being illuminated.

As a result, Hikvision ColorVu Cameras provide bright color video images 24/7 in low illumination conditions. They excel at capturing vivid chromatic images in a multitude of application scenarios, such as public places with no lighting, night security at industrial parks, traffic junctions in low light environments, and many more – everywhere colour information is particularly important.

These 4K Ultra HD CCTV Cameras are capable of capturing video at 3,840 x 2,160 pixels (8 megapixel) at a full frame rate of 25fps. These cameras offer ultra-high definition video surveillance, reducing the number of cameras needed to monitor large scenes and increasing the quality of images available for post-incident analysis.

Installation time for this system is 8am – 5pm, Monday to Saturday. If you require an alternative start time, or if you are unsure of any of the information contained on this page please do not hesitate to contact us.

Hikvision CCTV systems can support a multitude of notifications that can be configured to perform various actions from alerting your mobile phone to activating a parking barrier.

That being said, this guide talks about the three main notification options.

Motion Detection
In its simplest form, this is when an object enters the camera view area and a motion is triggered.

Line Crossing
An invisible line can be drawn on a particular area of your camera view area, for example the driveway threshold or the garden boundary. Once an object crosses over that line (from either way) - a line crossing is triggered.

Intrusion Detection
This is similar to Motion Detection but more specific. With Intrusion Detection an invisible quadrilateral shape can be drawn on a particular area of your camera view, for example directly outside your front door. Once an object then enters that area - an intrusion detection is triggered.

With all of the options above, the system is unable to detect the difference between a human, pet or other object. This can often result in false notifications being triggered to the user. In addition to this, if the system generates the notification - it is then down to your broadband provider (router) to push the notification out to your mobile device. This will often fail if your provider is not quite up to scratch or your mobile phone is currently in an area with poor coverage.

Because of this, we do not provide support on notifications that are sent to your mobile device.

Unfortunately, no.

We are authorised and Certified by Hikvision UK to supply and install their products.

We are unable to provide you with an installation only service if you have purchased your own equipment as we are not insured to do so.

In addition to this, we would be unable to provide you with our comprehensive support and warranty for three years that our systems come with.

If you are considering purchasing your own equipment, please consider our guide here : Pitfalls of buying Hikvision from eBay or Amazon

Our prices are fixed, so the cost of your installation will really depend on the amount of cameras you require and the type of system.

You can obtain a free online quotation by visiting our "Online System Builder"

You can see the differences between the systems by reading  "Our IP Systems Explained"

You can learn about our 'Fixed Prices, No Surprises' policy by reading our "Simple as 2, 3, 4"

No, unlike other companies and products - our systems do not need a fixed IP address, thus saving you at least £5 per month from your internet provider. We use the Hikvision Cloud P2P solution to ensure your CCTV is always reachable from your mobile device, regardless of IP changes.

For the use of Standard Definition (SD) streaming a 0.5mb service is sufficient.

For High Definition (HD) or streaming of multiple cameras at once, we would recommend anything above 2mb.

In either scenario, we always recommend using VirginMedia Fibre Optic to provide you with the best experience possible.

We’ll arrive at your home just prior to your agreed installation time. If we’re held up for any reason, we’ll contact you immediately to let you know. If you require us to use an unmarked van please let us know and we’ll do our best to accommodate (additional cost). The first thing we’ll do at your property is identify areas of risk such as entry points, weaknesses and vulnerabilities. Then we will plan the cable routing. This usually takes between 20 and 30 minutes and if it’s possible, we’d like you to be there to give us your approval prior to us starting the installation. We always do our best to hide cables and make sure the job is neat and tidy, in fact, we take great pride in it. Up to 8 camera systems can usually be installed within a day, however larger 8+ camera systems will take additional days and you would have been advised of this. On completion of  your installation, we provide you with a tutorial on how to use the system, together with our in house 'Quick User Guide'. Completion payment is then required prior to the installer leaving the premises, as per our Terms & Conditions.
All of our systems are capable of this, however this is also depending on your internet connection / router location. We will always install so that remote viewing is enabled by default.
Once we’ve completed your installation, we’ll give you a full demonstration of it’s capabilities and provide you with a complete and comprehensive set of instructions that are written in plain English. You’re more than welcome to call us at any time after your installation should you require any assistance whatsoever. If your system is networked, with your permission, we can change any settings you want updating remotely. You may need to provide us with access details.
