Breakdown of the features / Overview of the product
Each one of the cameras is capable of delivering a 960p resolution. Side by side comparison with a 720p camera makes 960p has more resolution to offer. A 960p resolution will deliver 1.3 megapixels, whilst 720p will only offer 1.0 megapixels.
With a focal length of 3.6mm, nothing can go unnoticed as the camera is able to capture almost what is on its 75° field of view. The principle behind focal length is, the lower the focal length – the wider the field of view.
The improved H.264+ video compression has simplified the way video is compressed on the hard drive. Unlike the old H.264 codec, the updated H.264+ is able to process video efficiently thereby reducing a considerable amount of bandwidth and storage used.
Type of hard drive used in video surveillance application is also a crucial factor to consider. Hiseeu wireless NVR is pre-installed with 1 terabyte surveillance grade hard drive.
With the H.264+ video codec built into the logic board, 20 days of continuous video storage is assured with 4 units of 960p camera recording on a daily basis.
Also, the storage hard drive can be upgraded to a maximum of 6TB in order to record many months of video clips.
Another important feature of a security camera is the ability to capture night footage without the reliance on additional lighting. If your existing security camera won’t produce a night vision footage, maybe it is time to get it replaced.
Hiseeu wireless camera is able to see up to 65feet distance in complete darkness. Whether you forgot to turn on the perimeter light before going to bed, the built-in powerful SMD infrared LED will enable the camera to capture night mode regardless.
The IP rating is also a really important feature to consider when selecting a security camera for your video application. Those digits behind the IP (Ingress Protection) mean something. The higher the ingress protection value, the more the camera is able to withstand dust and water impact.
IP66 rating on Hiseeu will keep the camera protected from flying dust, falling water, and humidity. The camera enclosure is securely sealed to prevent any undesirable objects from impacting the electronic circuit.
The motion detection on the NVR gives the user the opportunity to record clips, only when the camera detects movement across its lens. This way, users will be able to save more storage space since the NVR will not record any useless footage.
There is a built-in P2P technology on Hiseeu wireless NVR, which enables you to remotely connect to your security device.
Design of the Product and its Installation
Hiseeu wireless security is a suitable gear to have due to its flexibility in installation. This product is carefully designed and built to solve most of the complaints users do have from using other brands.
The installation and setup are very easy and could take a maximum of 30 minutes, even if you are doing this for the first time.
Here’s a quick resume of the installation process:
- You don’t need to pair the cameras with the NVR, it has already been paired before the shipment.
- Start by selecting appropriate locations to install your cameras, attach them to the surface with the included screws. Do not forget to screw the antenna to it, and provide an outlet for the power adapter.
- Make sure you do not exceed 30 meters from the base station (NVR) to each camera to avoid weak signal.
- Connect the display monitor of your choice to either of the video display ports of the NVR.
- Connect the included mouse to the USB port.
- Plug the 3 feet Ethernet cable to the LAN port of the NVR, and the other end to your router.
Time for you to power up the NVR, connect the adapter to the NVR and finally to the outlet. Allow the splash screen to come up, this may take up to 1 minute to boot up.
You will be presented with language option, select the appropriate one and select auto. Follow the on-screen instruction to the end.
Setting up the remote view is relatively easy. Head over to your respective mobile app store and install IP Pro3. Register an account on the app and proceed to add your cloud ID, which is displayed on the bottom right corner of your NVR.
Input the number into the app’s cloud ID box, enter your username and password if you have already set it up on the NVR. Otherwise, leave the password field blank.

The setup was straightforward. The embedded plug-n-play technology really simplified the process.

No one actually complained except few users who received dead on arrival devices. All the feedback we got from verified users proofed Hiseeu is doing great, and may soon hit a big spot in the market.
One of the shortcomings Hiseeu has is the installation and setup guide that is not detailed, I believed they can easily improve on this.
The mobile app also works flawlessly, it is very intuitive and bug-free. It connects directly to your NVR device without any delay. The app is being patched regularly by its developers.
