Advanced Product Technologies

Enhanced Power over Ethernet

ePoE technology offers a plug‐and‐play solution to transmit power and data over long distances via Ethernet or coaxial cables, reducing installation time and saving money. ePoE technology is a viable, cost‐effective solution for extending transmission distances up to eight times over CAT5/CAT6 cables and for converting existing, coax‐based analog systems into IP systems.

Panoramic Technology

We don’t like to miss anything and neither should you. Dahua panoramic cameras provide 180°, 270°, and 360° view options that provide wide-area video surveillance for increased situational awareness. Fisheye and Multi-sensor cameras replace multiple single-sensor cameras providing easier installation and a higher return on investment.

Video Intercom

The Dahua video intercom system is designed for multi-tenant apartment and commercial buildings, and single tenant educational facilities, estate residences and medical facilities. It allows tenants, property managers, and owners to manage keyless entry and visually communicate in real-time with property visitors. Flexible with existing cabling, our video intercom solution supports multiple communication paths and technologies, making it an ideal solution for new and existing installations.

Access Control

The Physical Access Control System (PACS) from Dahua Technology is designed for small- and medium-sized businesses to easily secure their people, property, and assets. It’s a complete solution that combines entrance management with native biometrics and video surveillance to provide the information companies require to quickly resolve incidents and to improve safety in and around commercial facilities.

Smart H.265+

Smart H.265+ is Dahua’s optimized implementation of H.265. This compression codec drastically reduces bit rates for an even higher savings on storage and bandwidth – up to 80% over standard H.264. Operators can configure Smart H.265+ to tailor encoding to a particular application or scene, adding flexibility and sophisticated image enhancement. Smart H.265+ offers a multi-pronged approach to reducing the quantity of data without degrading the image quality. Learn more in our Smart H.265+ video.

Artificial Intelligence

Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology brings a new level of video surveillance analytics to the security industry. Dahua’s deep learning algorithms enable AI devices to perceive and learn the environment so when something abnormal is detected, authorities can quickly respond before a situation arises. The first devices within the new AI Series include front-end cameras and back-end storage for facial recognition and a 3D people counting camera.

Low Light Technology

For challenging low-light applications, Dahua’s ultra low-light Starlight Technology offers best-in-class light sensitivity, capturing color details in low light down to less than 0.007 lux. The camera uses a set of optical features to balance light throughout the scene, resulting in clear images in dark environments.


Dahua offers Intelligent Video System (IVS) analytics at the edge as a standard feature on all Pro and Ultra Series IP cameras. IVS adds sense and structure to video data enabling users to search through data faster. Video content analysis improves the efficiency of a video surveillance system by using intelligent functions that survey a scene in real time and send alerts when a particular event is detected. This includes tripwire violations, intrusion into a defined area, and abandoned or missing objects. Additional advanced analytics include facial detection, heat mapping, and people counting. Cameras can also mitigate tampering by recognizing a dramatic scene change and generating a warning message to the operator.


Auto-tracking maximizes the capabilities of a Pan Tilt Zoom (PTZ) camera. Triggered manually or automatically by defined rules, the camera can zoom in and track the defined target in a single scene, panoramic scene, or across multiple scenes. Select Dahua PTZs have this innovative function.


Ultra-High Definition (UHD) 4K is the video surveillance resolution of the future, delivering four times the resolution of HD 1080p cameras for superior picture quality and image clarity. 4K resolution improves the clarity of a magnified scene to view and record crisp forensic video, an excellent choice for applications that require both fine detail and broad coverage. Dahua offers 4K in IP camera models, and was first-to-market with a 4K over coax (HDCVI) solution.
