HikVision Dashcam


The HikVision Dashcam (AE-DN2016-F3) uses the latest technology to produce HD 1080P dash camera from Hikvision (the world’s largest CCTV camera manufacturer). It comes with all the features you’d expect from a premium dashcam, all in a small, stylish package.

What makes this Dashcam so unique is that has no monitor to distract you (especially at night) and instead uses your smartphone to view the footage. This also allows the camera to be smaller and less intrusive.



WiFi smartphone connectivity

The Hikvision AE-DN2016-F3 dash cam has built in WiFi. When you start your car your smartphone will automatically connect to the camera’s WiFi enabling you to view live video, playback and download recorded video and snap shots, plus change camera settings via the Hik Dashcam app available for iOS and Android.

No LCD monitor

Most dash cams have an LCD monitor which can be distracting, especially while driving at night. The Hikvision AE-DN2016-F3 dash cam has no monitor (instead it uses your smartphone to view) which allows the camera to be smaller and less intrusive.

Mini remote control

The Hikvision AE-DN2016-F3 dash cam comes with a small (45mm diameter) remote button which makes taking snap shots a breeze and can mute audio recording. The button can be mounted on the vehicle dash or steering wheel using the supplied 3M mounting tape for easy access while driving. When the button is pushed the camera will save a 12-second file captured 6-seconds before the button pushed through to 6-seconds after the button push. The file is saved to a separate folder on the SD card.

GPS built in

The Hikvision AE-DN2016-F3 dash cam has a built in GPS receiver which overlays your vehicle’s location when playing back on the smartphone app plus it shows the vehicle’s speed on the recordings.

Green-light and vehicle moving voice prompt

Voice prompt alerts you when the traffic light turns green or the vehicle in front moves off and you don’t start moving. Saves the embarrassing horn honks from drivers behind you! This feature can be switched off in camera settings.

Speed limit sign prompt

The HikVision Dashcam (AE-DN2016-F3) can read speed limit signs to you helping you avoid speeding tickets. This feature can be switched off in-camera settings.

Easy 10-second installation

The HikVision Dashcam can be installed in as little as 10 seconds with the adjustable windscreen mount and magnetic quick connect.

Mounting bracket with quick release magnetic connector

The camera bracket includes a magnetic quick-connector so you can quickly remove the camera from prying eyes when leaving the vehicle. It then easily clicks back into place when you return to the vehicle.

Small size dashcam

The Hikvision AE-DN2016-F3 dash camera is only 44.5mm x 44.5mm x 52mm in size so it is a lot less intrusive than many dashcam models when fitted to your windscreen. In most vehicles, the camera can be mounted behind the rearview mirror to keep it out of the way.

G-sensor built-in

The built-in G-sensor detects a crash and stops important video from being overwritten.

Built-in audio mic

The Hikvision AE-DN2016-F3 has a built-in audio mic so can record audio in the vehicle. This feature can be turned off permanently in the camera settings or can temporarily be switched off with the mini remote.

Capacitor back up power

The Hikvision dash camera has a capacitor for back up power rather than a Li-ion battery. Back up power is required to save files once the main power (vehicle ignition) is turned off. Capacitors are much safer than batteries as they will not swell up and leak which can damage the camera.
