These days, there are a ton of affordable security options out there. Unfortunately, a lot of them are sort of fuzzy. Samsung is hoping bring a few high-def CCTV options to the mainstream, with two new cameras.
If you’re looking for detail (literally) in your security footage, Samsung just introduced the 8-channel SDH-P4040 and the 16-channel SDH-P5080. Both cameras provide real-time and recorded video in high definition.
Both systems offer four, outdoor-ready 720p HD bullet cameras, all of which promises night vision up to 85 feet. The 16-channel model adds in four additional bullet cameras, with night vision up to 75 feet.
Each one also boasts an easy setup, with all-in-one HDTV kits and Cat5e cable. Each kit comes with a DVR with a 1TB surveillance-class SATA hard disk for 24/7 recording. Other features include Samsung Super Dynamic Range (SSDR) and Samsung Super Noise Reduction (SSNR III) technologies.
If you’re looking to peep while out of the house, all of the new CCTV options can be viewed from a desktop computer or one of Samsung’s free iOS and Android apps.
“High-definition CCTV security systems provide exceptional clarity and performance; however, until today, price points have traditionally kept average consumers or small business owners from truly experiencing the benefits offered by such systems,” said Mike Palazzolo, VP of sales and marketing for Samsung’s consumer video monitoring and security products. “Without cutting any corners in regard to performance or features found in these two new kits, Samsung has now opened the door for all customers to further bolster their security setups with not only the precise detail afforded by high-definition imagery, but the wider field-of-view as well.”
Samsung plans to start selling the SDH-P4040 and SDH-P5080 this spring. Look for the products to be priced at $1,399 and $1,799, respectively.
