Am I missing something? I See stuff in the NVR tabs, but the camera tab of the spreadsheet is empty.

Yes... the Tab has some filters set on - Remove the filters ... (the little green funnel things next to the heading).

Cameras are all there

Restored another revision. Can the sheet be locked down to at least "logged in users" ? The anonymous edits were the culprits this time...

Thanks. I tried to find that kind of option but couldn't. If someone knows how this can be done, please tell here.

It is now empty again. You should not allow edit from anyone - it won't work.

After you restore to your intended version, click on the share button in top right corner, in the "Anyone with link 'can edit'", change the 'can edit' to 'can view'.
This way, people can view but cannot change your spreadsheet.

Is there any plans to update this? ie DS-2CD2442FWD-IW.

Is there info anywhere that explains these codes? ie FWD IW. I presume they stand for something but what.

Hi please see the image attached.

Example

Using the Hikvision part code naming above, we can decode a Bullet camera with the following example.

DS-2CD2042WD-I

  • Hikvision (DS-2)
  • Colour (C)
  • Digital (D)
  • Entry/2-Line (2)
  • Bullet (0)
  • 4 Megapixel (42)
  • WDR (WD)
  • Infrared IR (I)

Confused with Hikvision model numbers? And features included in specific cameras? Please have a look at this easy-to-read spreadsheet. It'll also give you the prices of cameras from three reputable sellers, it is safe to order from them. In this thread, you can also ask about differences of the models.


>> Hikvision Product Comparison - Google Sheets
(both cameras and NVRs now compared!)


Important thing to note:
If you purchase a Hikvision camera / NVR from Aliexpress, you should not upgrade the firmware. If you upgrade it, the user interface will be in Chinese only. Despite there are some solutions to this issue, it's better not to upgrade the firmware if you are unsure.
not all hikvision items from aliexpress are mult-language version( convert from chinese version,firmware cann't upgrade). now lots of english version which firmware upgradeable, like: bit.ly/2tYuaql

Hi, I'm considering ordering a HIKVISION HD Smart 4 Megapixel PoE Turret IP Outdoor Surveillance Camera, EXIR Night Vision, 2.8mm Lens, ASIN number B01EN3YBZ4 model number: DS-2CD2342WD-I 2.8MM for about $120.00

EDIT TO ADD: after research I'm considering the 4mm lens instead of the 2.8mm lens.

Anyone familiar with this camera and can tell me if it is worth getting and if not, why.

Thanks !

Gary

I've tried making heads or tails out of this spreadsheet, but I'm guessing the sheet has been majorly compromised by bogus edits & deletions? Wouldn't it be worth locking the sheet to further edits other than a few trusted contributors (Alastair, etc)?

UPDATE: I did get the Hikvision DS-2CD2342WD-I with the 4mm lens for about $138 from Amazon. (US version) and I am very pleased so far considering the affordable price.
