Difference between Hikvision Turbo DVRs (DS-7204HUHI-K1 vs DS-7204HQHI-K1)?

A question that we inevitably get asked at least once a week is ‘what is the difference between Hikvision HUHI and HQHI DVR models’. The answer is surprisingly simple:

  • the HUHI can record at a resolution of up to 8MP (HDTVI) VS 4MP of the HQHI;

  • the HUHI has alarm outputs (4/1) VS HQHI that does not;

  • the HUHI supports two-way audio with RCA I/O VS HQHI does not have audio terminals.

Previously, the two DVR models also used different GUI – now it is the same.

The HUHI is normally a bit more pricey than its HQHI counterpart, but if you have cameras 5MP or higher resolution, want to integrate audio or alarm system – then HUHI is the way to go.
