Pelco DF5 Upgrade

Do you run a casino, commercial building, a mall, healthcare facility, a school or fine dining restaurant? You probably have cameras and they probably have Pelco DF5 camera enclosures. The Pelco DF5 camera enclosures are low profile dome enclosures that can be used discreetly to house a Pelco fixed CCTV camera in an indoor location. 

The cameras that were installed in the DF5 enclosure were compact box cameras. Many end users using these cameras and camera enclosures haven’t wanted to upgrade their system to a modern full HD camera because of the cost. Now Hikvision has made it possible with not one, but two camera models that will fit inside the legacy DF5 dome housing. The cameras that Hikvision are offering are:

  • an IP camera - for users making the switch to an IP network and
  • an HD-TVI camera - for users that aren’t making the switch to an IP network.

In either case, the legacy analog recording system will also need to be upgraded, which you can do with Hikvision because they have complete solutions.  

IP NETWORK CAMERA

The IP network camera is a 2-megapixel dome camera with a 1920x1080 resolution at 30 fps. It provides detailed close-ups. The lens is a motorized varifocal lens that ranges from 6 to 22 mm to accommodate high ceilings. The standard dome is clear, but you can get a smoked dome as well. It will work indoors and outdoors with IP67 and IK weather and impact protection. In order to upgrade you will have to also get the D5F adapter which is a retrofit in-ceiling back box.

HD-TVI ANALOG CAMERA

The analog camera is a compact 2-megapixel HD analog box camera with a 1920x1080 resolution at 30 fps that will provide close-up details. It has a low-light sensor and is compatible with C/CS mount lenses. With the box camera it directly replaces the legacy compact analog box camera, so no need for the adapter. There are two lens options that you can get for the box camera as well. Both are manual varifocal; one is 2.7 to 13 mm and the other is 5 to 50 mm.

When you are ready to upgrade your Pelco camera system give us a call and we will help you with your decision on which camera to get.

Social Distancing

Due to the current situation, the global pandemic, the CDC has issued a few recommendations that everyone should follow. Some of the recommendations are; social distancing, wear a face covering, use hand sanitizer, wash your hands frequently, and the biggest one is if you aren’t feeling well to stay home. 

Because of the CDC guidelines a lot of stores and restaurants are having to change how they do business. Social distancing and occupancy are a big part in the guidelines. The CDC is saying to limit the number of guests in your business to help reduce the numbers of Coronavirus.

The features on both models of cameras are:

  •     People counting for business intelligence
  •     Social distance measurement for safety
  •     Social density tracking for safety
  •     Minimum illumination color: 0.0176 lux @ f/2.5, B/W: 0 lux with IR
