Stop Intruders in Their Tracks: Introducing Dahua TIOC 2 Cameras

Traditional CCTV, whilst effective in some instances, can lack the deterrent power to stop criminals in their tracks. Dahua TIOC 2 cameras feature Active Deterrence and address this issue by combining multiple innovative security features – including intrusion detection, PIR lighting and two-way audio – into one user-friendly camera. This creates a powerful security solution that deters crime and provides superior protection for your property.

Limitations of Traditional CCTV

CCTV has been a powerful tool in the fight against crime for over 50 years. Its value has remained  unquestioned and particularly so since the development of affordable high definition cameras which enable security personnel to capture close up detail of any incident in order to gather evidence and potentially identify the culprit. 

However, although some burglars might be deterred from breaking into a property or site if they can see there are surveillance cameras installed, there are sadly a great number of thieves who are not so easily put off, as they do not believe the police are likely to respond quickly enough to catch them in the act. 

Beyond CCTV: Multi-function Security Cameras

In order to increase the level of security, video surveillance solutions are often made up of additional components such as PIR activated security lighting and Intruder detection systems with blue or red strobe lighting, as well as an alarm siren to deter offenders from entering the building or space being protected. There is though the hassle of having to separately procure all these components and  installers also need to use up valuable time installing them, as well as ensuring they will robustly interact with each other. 

Dahua TIOC 2 Cameras: All-in-One Active Deterrence

With its ‘three-in-one’ Dahua TiOC 2 cameras, Dahua has taken a giant step forward by combining all these technologies into one product, enabling them to be easily programmed to perform the required level of functionality. The cameras are also equipped with AI to accurately detect people and vehicles as well as two-way audio, which enables standard or customised audio messages to be automatically broadcast when a break-in is detected.

Customisable Zones for Targeted Security

The Dahua TIOC 2 Cameras can be further customised by defining one or more detection zones, with the end-user specifying what should occur when an intruder enters a particular zone, e.g. someone approaching close to an entrance triggers a warning audio message and/or the alarm siren will sound, with the PIR activated security lighting having already come on when the intruder entered a wider zone. 

TIOC 2 Features: A Comprehensive Security Package

  • Intrusion and tripwire detection
  • Classification and accurate detection of vehicles and humans
  • Abnormality detection e.g. motion, privacy masking, scene changing, audio detection, no SD card, SD card full, SD card error and network disconnection 
  • Built-in warm light for full colour images at night up to 40m
  • IR LED illumination distance up to 50m
  • Red and blue flashing lights or activation of white light
  • Sound Alarm – siren and/or pre-recorded or custom recorded challenge messages
  • 2 way audio for real-time challenge/communication through built-in speakers and microphone

AI-powered Analytics: Reducing False Alarms

The AI video analytics built into the Dahua TIOC 2 Cameras ignores video noise, waving trees, moving clouds and animals because it has not been trained to look out for them. As such, common causes of false alarms normally associated with traditional motion detection technology or sensors being used to detect activity can be eliminated, saving time and money, whilst allowing security personnel to respond quickly to any suspicious activity or emergency.

Integrated Security with Dahua AirShield

A major advantage offered by Dahua TIOC 2 cameras is that they can be very easily integrated with their AirShield system (you can read more about Airshield in a recent article), Dahua’s professional level EN 51031 Grade 2 compliant wireless intruder alarm system which comes with optional internal PIR cameras and water leak and smoke detectors. Most importantly, AirShield and the cameras can be remotely monitored alongside each other via the Dahua mobile App, giving the user complete situational awareness from the convenience of a mobile device.
