Wisenet WAVE 4.0

Designed to support the advanced features and onboard analytics that are unique to Hanwha cameras, Wisenet WAVE VMS has seen significant development since its introduction last year, and is ideally suited to meet the needs of customers looking for reasonably priced, easy to use, end-to-end video surveillance solutions.

Version 4.0 adds support for Q series NVRs with integrated PoE, improved PTZ support & functionality on NVRs and SPE encoders.

New in-camera analytic functions also include queue management, shock detection, and temperature change detection (for thermal cameras) as well as sound classification and descriptive alerts for events like explosions, glass breaking, gunshots, and screams.

System scalability has been enhanced to support additional servers, devices and users.

A new metadata SDK also allows the rapid integration of object metadata (coordinates, tags) generated by 3rd party computer vision applications, allowing for the integration of functions which includes the ability to overlay bounding boxes and object paths within video tiles, as well as integrate custom actions and events.

Wisenet X series Plus

The Wisenet X series Plus with its modular design, is one of the easiest cameras to install, service and upgrade saving installers time and money.

X series Plus cameras use magnets to lock sensor modules into the housing for instant configuration, and electricians can run conduit with a single PoE connection to the housing or backplate, without the camera module, allowing security professionals to snap the camera into place after the job site is clean in just minutes.

X Plus camera features also include extended temperature handling, increased tilt angle, removable color skins, and PTRZ (pan, tile, rotate, zoom) for ultimate flexibility.

Pre-recorded audio messages and warnings can also be triggered by in-camera analytics and played out directly from the cameras

5MP Q series

The Q series camera line has been enhanced with 5MP resolution at up to 30fps, representing a highly affordable entry price-point without sacrificing essential features and performance.

For ease of installation, an onboard composite video baseband signal (CVBS) output enables installers to connect a portable analog monitor directly when making precise adjustments at the camera location.

Featuring true WDR and a motorized vari-focal lens, Q series cameras also support H.265 and WiseStream II compression technology, keeping bandwidth and storage requirements to a minimum.


A new Smart Search feature is one of the enhancements to the company’s XRN and QRN NVRs.

Easy remote monitoring access via mobile app is configured instantly by QR code scanning, without requiring configuration of DNS settings or port forwarding.

Finally, XRN and QRN NVRs support H.265 recording for the most efficient media storage with select models support built-in PoE / PoE+ ports negating the need for a dedicated PoE switch.
