Hik Connect Setup
How to setup Hik Connect Overview
If your Hikvision DVR/NVR has a label stating default password and a password written on the recorder, then we have set up all options to allow the recorder to be viewed on the internet using a mobile device or a computer using Hik connect APP. Just follow from step 5 onwards or see the first video above in order to view your CCTV system.
If your recorder is not pre-configured for Hik connect, please start from step 1 or view the video below.
|1||Unpack your Hikvision DVR/NVR and ensure your network cable is plugged into the LAN port of the DVR/NVR & your router before powering up. We recommend placing the recorder near the router at this stage. Use a ready-made network cable or a cable which has been tested. Do not use a wireless home plug or other wireless units at this stage.|
Power up your Hikvision DVR/NVR and Right click to bring up the sign in screen. Key in the password which is written on the label or draw the pattern which is also on the label. DO NOT CHANGE YOUR PASSWORD until you are confident with the working of the recorder. We suggest you allow 2 weeks for this.
