Hikvision Dual-Tech detector
Hikvision Dual-Tech detector is intended for indoor installation in locations such as living rooms, kitchens, hallways, bedrooms or for use in office buildings.
The PIR detector has the model number DS-PDD12P-EG2-WE and is a fully secured wireless two-way detector with motion detection, built-in radar sensor, sabotage protection, low battery monitoring and connection control. It can operate for up to 5 years from a built-in battery. It ignores animals while recognising humans from the first step.
Detection range of the DS-PDD12P-EG2-WE
The Hikvision Dual-Tech detector can monitor an area of 12 metres from the sensor for movement at an angle of 85.9 degrees. If you place the detector in the corner of a room, the entire room will be secured.
The sensor divides the area into 52 zones and triggers an alarm if one or more zones detect movement. This sensitivity is adjustable via the Hik-Connect application on your smartphone. There are a total of 3 settings, high sensitivity, normal and animal friendly. The latter must be selected if cats or dogs are present in the area to be protected. Pets up to 30KG are not detected in this mode.
Difference between Dual-Tech and internal PIR detector
The Dual-Tech detector has as an extra compared to the normal wireless internal PIR detector an extra radar sensor to monitor alarms caused by cold and heat air currents. Such airflows are caused by air conditioning, a fireplace or an open window. If you also want the Hikvision AX Pro alarm system to be able to reliably switch on when the air conditioning system is switched on or an open fire is burning, then choose this Dual-Tech detector.
Range from the Hikvision Hub
The range from the Hub to the Hikvision Dual-Tech detector DS-PDD12P-EG2-WE is 1,600 metres in open field. The connection is continuously monitored by the Hikvision Cloud. If the wireless signal is deliberately disturbed it will be immediately reported via the Hik-Connect app on your smartphone. The wireless Hikvision signal is called Tri-X, and operates on 2 different frequencies in the 868mhz band and has AES-128 encryption.
The ideal height for mounting the Hikvision Dual-Tech detector is between 1.80 metres and 2.40 metres. If you have pets, we recommend a height of at least 2 metres. At this height, a dog weighing up to 30 kilograms can walk around freely without triggering the alarm. If you mount the Dual-Tech detector lower than the recommended height, it will respond more quickly to pets and will also reduce the detection distance of 15 metres. Of course all installation supplies are included.
Login and assembly
All Hikvision products are easy to connect. Registration is done with a QR code on each device. Put the Hik-Connect app in the “Enroll” position and you can start adding products by scanning the QR code in the app.
Mount the detector on a wall without disassembling it. Make sure there are no vases, cabinets or glass objects blocking the angle of view. And you’re done. Don’t forget that the ideal location for this internal PIR detector is in the corners of your home. Thanks to its detection angle, it can secure an entire room at this location.
Settings of the Hikvision Dual-Tech detector
In addition to setting the sensitivity, you can make a number of other adjustments. For example, you can choose to use the detector as a bell function. As soon as someone walks into the room you will hear a bell on your phone. This doorbell function seems more like something for shopkeepers or to use at a door contact, so you will be informed when someone comes to your home, for example the children coming from school.
In addition, you can indicate when the detector should detect. Only if you switch on the alarm system, or for example permanently if you mount it in a room that needs to be permanently monitored, such as a safe room.
The detector, like all Hikvision products of the AX Pro alarm system, runs on batteries of type CR123A and is therefore completely wireless. They are therefore easy to place anywhere without having to lay cables. The service life of the batteries supplied as standard is 5 years under normal use. After this time, they can easily be replaced for new ones for a few euros. These batteries are always available from stock. How to replace the batteries can be found in the manual of the Dual-Tech detector DS-PDD12P-EG2-WE.
The Hikvision Dual-Tech detector works in temperatures between -10 and +55 degrees Celsius. Outside these values the detection quality can decrease. The dimensions are 65,5mm x 103mm x 48,5mm and the weight is 141 grams.
- DS-PDP15P-EG2-WE Wireless internal PIR Detector:
Without radar sensor, for use in rooms without air conditioning systems and fireplaces that are active when the alarm system is switched on. Slightly longer detection range of 15 metres instead of 12 metres with the Dual-Tech detector.
- DS-PDPC12P-EG2-WE Wireless PIR Camera Detector:
This has an extra camera to send images directly to your smartphone in case of a burglary report. With this camera detector you are immediately informed who or what triggered the alarm, and you can immediately take appropriate action.
- DS-PDC15-EG2-WE Wireless PIR Curtain Detector:
It has an extra narrow detection angle of 6.3 degrees to secure very specific locations. Ideal, for example, to be placed in shops with activated doorbell function, so you can hear immediately when someone walks into the shop. But it can also be used as security directly along windows or doors. For example, with an activated alarm you can still walk around in the room, and an alarm will only sound when you get very close to the window or door.
- DS-PDPG12P-EG2-WE Wireless PIR Glass Break Detector:
This has extra microphones to check for glass breakage. This will sound an alarm when glass is broken rather than just motion detection.
