Ezviz C4W camera
The Ezviz C4W camera is a Full HD color camera for both indoor and outdoor with infrared night vision.
The Ezviz camera is powered by an included adapter. The connection to the internet is wireless via WiFi or, if desired, wired via an internet cable for a more stable connection. The camera can also be powered via POE. This means that if you use a Power Over Ethernet powered switch you only need to run one cable to the camera to make the camera wired to work. In other words, the power then comes from the internet cable.
If you plan to mount the camera in a place where Wi-Fi reception is not optimal, consider connecting it wired. By using a POE switch, you do not need power at the location where you want to place the camera. You just place the POE switch where the router of your internet enters the house, and only lay an internet cable to the location where you want to place the camera.
Because this camera from the brand Ezviz, part of Hikvision, this camera is easily integrated into the AJAX alarm system.
Which means integratable
This means that the live camera images, after creating your own Ezviz account, are also directly visible in the application of AJAX. This way you have the alarm system and camera images together in 1 App on your smartphone.
Attention: A camera cannot be seen as a replacement for a motion detector of the AJAX alarm system. A camera will also never be able to operate the siren of the AJAX alarm. For reliable detection of unwanted persons, a motion detector is always necessary.
Ezviz app and AJAX app
As mentioned, the camera works completely independently, so not in combination with an alarm system. If you receive an alarm on your smartphone, and you want to know immediately what’s going on in your home, you can view the live images of the Ezviz camera at lightning speed by either opening the Ezviz application on your smartphone, or the AJAX application if you have integrated the Ezviz account into the AJAX app.
What is a camera good for
The ezviz cameras are therefore ideal for viewing live, or at a later time, images of any unwanted visit that may have been present with you. By means of the option to insert an SD card into the camera you can save recordings internally for weeks.
Which camera brands can be integrated into the AJAX app
Notice the camera that you can place between the device list in the AJAX app: Ezviz by Hikvision, Hikvision, Safire, Dahua and Uniview. So if you buy one of the popular Ezviz cameras from our webshop, they are suitable for integration in the AJAX App.
But this certainly does not mean that you are bound to these 4 brands. The only advantage that these brands offer is that the camera images are also visible in the AJAX App.
Another brand of camera can also be fine
Each security camera brand also has its own application which you can always install for free on your smartphone. So in principle it doesn’t matter which application you use to watch the camera images live. Whether you do this in the App from AJAX, or from the camera manufacturer, it doesn’t matter.
You always need to create an account in the App of the camera manufacturer, and only after that you can add the camera data in the AJAX App by logging in to that created account.
The retrieval of live images is virtually the same for all applications from the different manufacturers.
So there is no time saving by choosing a special integration in the AJAX App.
The Ezviz C4W camera is an excellent camera for both indoor and outdoor mounting. However, if you are not able to pull a cable from your router to the camera or do not have access to a power point at the outdoor location where you would like to have a camera, then this is a good solution.
Ezviz also has a fully wireless battery-powered camera that can work for up to 9 months on one battery charge, this is the Ezviz C3A camera.
A cheaper alternative, but only suitable for indoor mounting is the Safire DM934 camera.
