Hello,

I want to install 4 IP Cams at each corner of the house
I'm looking more a hikvision 4 line with face detection to trigger an event if someone is around the house when security system is armed.
But i have read some posts that the face decetion is not so effective so is it worth paying more fore it?
Second question, wich Hikvision IP Cams are working wel with this feature, both 4K and HD models please.
what else do i need to get it working and trigger an alarm contact assuming i have a Cat 5E cable+ contact cable a each camera.
I a hikvison NVR required to trigger a face detection alarm contact?
At the moment i have a dahua IPC3200C, but this is temporary, this cam is configured on my Synology NAS with surveillance station.

Advice would be appreciated.

thanks.

Welcome to the forum.

Please read the cliff notes and other items in the wiki. The wiki is in the blue bar at the top of the page.

I do not think face detections is a good technology at the moment in the camera. There are software packages that can do it.
For any detection to work well the cameras need to be mounter on 2 meters up, looking directly at the face.

What Hikvision calls "Face Detection" actually means "oh look there is a face in that image". And that only works if the face is well illuminated and right in front of the camera.
