I've had a few full kit security systems come through over the years. More recently, Super HD and Ultra HD has made its way into the market and even come down in price ever so slightly. Annke is a company dedicated to home and business security, offering a wide range of solutions from Baby and Pet monitors to PoE and wireless NVRs. One of their most recent releases is the Helm I5, a four-camera kit that has the ability to expand as your needs grow.

The Helm I5 is a flexible solution aimed at small businesses wanting to keep track of and monitor their property. Configurations include either 4 or 8 5MP PoE cameras and a NVR with 1,2,3 or 4TB of storage. Features include 5MP 2560x1920 resolution cameras that take advantage of PoE installation and are IP67 certified for dust and water.

Additionally, the cameras offer EXIR night vision supporting 100ft night vision capabilities. On the NVR, we have a powerful unit capable of H265+ compression and an HDMI output up to 4K30 and VGA to 1080P for viewing all four or eight cameras at once. Bandwidth for the NVR is capped at 80M allowing for four channels at 1080p or one channel at 4K. The Annke Helm does support ONVIF for integration with 3rd party systems like a NAS.

MSRP of the Annke Helm I5 in the four-camera 2TB configuration comes in at $509.99 with a one-year warranty.

Tyler was hooked and learned what it meant to format a HDD, spending many nights reinstalling Windows 95. Tyler's love and enthusiast nature always kept his PC nearby. Eager to get deeper into tech, he started reviewing.
