Self-install recorders

Achieve maximum performance with H.265 technology

Xvision® self-install recorders use H.265 technology to perform at twice the efficiency of older H.264 recorders. The results are clearer images, better use of the available hard drive space and faster remote viewing.

Professional quality and unbeatable performance.

Xvision® have been designing, manufacturing and supplying CCTV systems across the world for over 21 years. They use the very latest, highest quality components across their range, allowing them to offer a 3 year warranty on all products.

Wireless CCTV without
the disadvatages of Wi-Fi.

The Self-Install range is available in both wireless and wired versions.

Xvision® wired self-install systems are available in 5MP and 4K (8MP) resolution and require just one cable between the camera and the recorder. Using PoE® (Power over Ethernet) technology this single cable carries power from the recorder to the camera, and images and optional one-way or two-way audio from the camera to the recorder. You can also control any special functions (including the zoom level on zoom cameras) and camera settings from the recorder, all using the same single cable.

For those requiring wireless, Xvision® have designed the 5MP self-install range to operate seamlessly on Powerline® technology. This technology offers the rock solid reliability of a wired connection without the limited bandwidth and connection dropouts of a traditional Wi-Fi system. It does this by using the electrical wiring in your property as its wiring. The technology is fully approved for use in the UK and will not interfere with your electrical wiring in anyway. Simply connect your Xvision® wireless cameras to a standard UK electrical socket (using the Powerline® adaptors supplied), do the same with your recorder and enjoy the same features and picture quality as a wired system.

Save time with motion detection recording and alerts

All Xvision® recorders support motion detection as standard. This detects movement by looking for changes in the pixels that make up the camera image. The system can be set to record continuously or only when motion is detected, giving you longer recording times and saving viewing time when reviewing recordings. Additionally the system can send you alerts when motion is detected.

Motion Detection

Extra security with cloud recording and notifications

As well as recording to the built in hard drive, Xvision® recorders can also automatically upload event recordings (ones that have been detected by motion detection or AI) directly to Google cloud or Dropbox, for safe keeping off-site, and instantly notify you of events.

Alexa and Google
Assistant compatible

Using Alexa or Google Assistant?

Xvision® recorders are Alexa and Google Assistant ready, so you can view your cameras live on compatible devices.

Respects yours and others' privacy!

Xvision® recorders feature easy to use privacy masking which can be used to block out parts of the camera view that you do not want recorded.

Privacy Masking

AI compatible for smarter detection and extra intelligence

Xvision® recorders are compatible with the new Xvision® camera range, which are available with 3 levels of AI functionality depending on model:

1. Intelligent detection

Intelligent detection is better suited to outdoor detection rather than standard motion detection. It uses AI to detect humans and vehicles, and reduces the false alarms caused by standard outdoor motion detection by up to 90%.

Intelligent detection also allows you to create virtual fences and perimeters, alerting you if objects, humans or vehicles cross or leave these areas. It will also detect stationary objects/vehicles/humans and alert you when objects move or go missing.

2. Face detection

Face detection uses AI to recognise faces, you can then individually name and make lists of known faces. When a face is recognised you can set the system to send alerts or trigger alarms. Recordings can also be searched by face.

In addition, face detection will provide an estimate of someone’s age and mood, and recognise if they are wearing glasses or a face mask.

3. Business intelligence

For business users Xvision® business intelligence provides vital insights and additional features to help your business run more efficiently.

Time and Attendance

Powered by face detection, provides a non contact passive way to know when staff are at work.

Customer/Visitor Recognition

Provides age ranges, mood and face mask detection for visitors to your premises.

Queue Management

Queue length detection with alerts when queue lengths are longer than desired.

Heat Maps / Crowd Density Detection

Shows you which areas have the most footfall/traffic and will alert you of overcrowding /gathering of people in high security areas.

Cross Counting

Will count how many people (or vehicles) enter and leave your premises or car park.

Object Detection

Can alert you when a vehicle or person enters or stays in a prohibited area over a pre-set time.

Easy connection to a
monitor or TV

To view cameras live or playback cameras directly from the recorder simply connect any monitor or TV with an HDMI socket. The recorder supports monitors of up to 4K resolution and offers a variety of viewing modes, including split screen multi camera view, manual single camera selection or automatic switching.

We provide you with more
than just a recorder

How you setup your recorder will determine how your system operates. That's why we offer a free online session with an Product Specialist, they will make sure your recorder (and system) is setup to your exact needs, and make sure you know how to operate your recorder, including playing back and backing up recordings.

Safe remote access anytime, without monthly fees

All Xvision® systems are supplied with free iOS/Android apps and Windows/Mac software. These applications let you view cameras live, playback recordings, backup recordings, control zoom cameras, listen to audio, speak to people near the camera and more.

There are no monthly charges and the recordings stay on your recorder, safe from the cyber attacks that cloud based systems are vulnerable too.
