How to Connect Hikvision IP Cameras to an NVR

How to Connect Hikvision IP Cameras to an NVR

Hikvision IP cameras are very popular in the security camera industry. You may already own a Hikvision system or cameras. One of the recurring complaints we hear about Hikvision equipment is that it can be difficult to use. For your everyday home consumer complicated equipment can be time consuming, and just not worth it. Even installers have difficulties getting Hikvision systems to work exactly how they want. The good news is Hikvision’s cameras can connect and record to an Avalonix NVR.

Some notable OEM Hikvision brands include: LaView, LTS, and more. OEM means the cameras and NVR are relabeled and sold under a different brand. However, it does not mean OEM systems are any easier to use. If you are unhappy with your Hikvision NVR, but want to keep your cameras and are looking for a professional and easy to use system then you found the right place.

Step 1. Prepare your Hikvision Camera to be added

You will need to set your IP camera up to be added via the ONVIF protocol.You will need to access the web interface of the camera. This may vary depending on the firmware version on your cameras, but the process should be relatively the same. If the options look different, try looking for similar settings.

A. Configure the cameras to be accessible from your network

Using Hikvision’s Batch Configuration or SADP tool you will need to change the IP address on your IP camera. You will need to set the IP address to the same network as your router so you can access the cameras web interface from your computer. Keep in mind each camera needs a unique IP address on the same network.

If you’re unsure how to change the IP address, or need to download software tools for your cameras we recommend contacting Hikvision or the OEM camera vendor you purchased from.

B. Enable ONVIF protocol and add an ONVIF user

After you are able to access your camera's web interface you will need to enable the ONVIF protocol inside the camera. ONVIF allows our NVRs to add and connect to the Hikvision cameras and start recording video.

 

The ONVIF option is usually found in the Configuration page under the Network subsection and finally Advanced Settings (items 1 and 2 in the image above)

The advanced settings page will have multiple tabs. The ONVIF settings are found in the Integration Protocol tab (item 3 in the image above).

Check the “Enable ONVIF” box (item 4 in the image above).

You also need to create an ONVIF user. To create an ONVIF user simply click the Add button (item 5 in the image above). Create a username and password you will remember. This is the username and password that you will need to enter for connecting to the camera from the NVR. For the best compatibility we recommend making the ONVIF user at the Administrator level.

Click Save at the bottom of the options to save the changes.

Step 2. Add the Hikvision Camera to an Avalonix NVR

After your cameras are configured to have an ONVIF user and the ONVIF protocol is enabled you can now move on to adding them to the Avalonix NVR. In our guide we cover using the web interface to manually add the camera. However, you can also manually add these cameras in front of the NVR using the Camera registration screen.

A. Access the web interface of the NVR

You will need to access the web interface of the NVR. You will need to type the IP address set on your NVR in the address bar of a web browser like Edge, or Chrome. Our NVRs ship with a default IP address - 192.168.1.108.

You will be required to login with the username and password that is set on your NVR. If you have not changed the username and password from default, you can find the password label located on the top of the Avalonix NVR.

B. Navigate to the Camera Registration screen and click Manual Add

When you first login to your NVR you will see a lot of options. You will want to navigate to the Camera Registration screen. On our NVR this is done by clicking Management at the top left and choosing the top option Camera.

After you’re in the Camera Registration screen you will see the linked devices. If your NVR has no cameras added, or connected then you see a blank screen like in our example.

To add an ONVIF camera click the Manual Add button to bring up a Manual Add menu.

C. Manually Add the Hikvision IP camera

Finally you are ready to manually add the information for your Hikvision cameras. You will need to create a manual entry for each camera you want to add to the NVR.

When adding the cameras you will first want to change the Manufacturer from Private to ONVIF. This will tell the NVR to look at the IP address for an ONVIF device.

Then you will need to enter the IP address you set on your camera earlier. This will need to be repeated for each camera you have setup on the network.

To finish your Manual Add entry, type in the username and password for the ONVIF user you created on the camera. Click OK to save the entry.

As long as you’ve typed everything in correctly and the camera has been configured properly you should receive a green status and the device entry might fill in the Hikvision model number or camera name. You should give it up to a minute or two before it finishes connecting.

Troubleshooting

  • If you don’t receive a green status after some time you will want to review the Hikvision camera's settings to ensure the ONVIF protocol is enabled and the ONVIF user is created.
  • Try restarting the NVR and camera if you’ve verified all of the information is correct.
  • You want to make sure the NVR and camera are on the same network and can communicate.

Please note not all Hikvision cameras will connect to an Avalonix NVR using the ONVIF protocol so your mileage may vary.

IP camera Hikvision - the best choice

In earlier versions of the firmware (to version 5.3.0) IP cameras HIKVISION supplied to IP address 192.0.0.64 and the default password is 12345.

Starting with version 5.3.0 firmware, connecting IP cameras HIKVISION to the network is the new procedure.

Cameras with firmware 5.3.0 and above before connecting to the network need to "activate" because they come from the factory without password (not active). Since the cameras with the new firmware "default" no password, the Installer having trouble connecting IP cameras HIKVISION with firmware> = 5.3.0 DVRs familiar to them "automatic" way.

Consider the process of connection (activation) IP cameras HIKVISION.

First you need to find out the IP address of the camera and its firmware version. How to determine the IP address of the camera - we describe in this article: http://www.elvis.com.ua/en/articles-en/245-how-to-find-the-ip-address-of-the-camera.html.

There are two easy ways:

 1) Look at the sticker (label) on the box from the camera, indicating the firmware version and default IP address of the camera.

IP camera 5.3.0 firmware

2) Using a special utility SADP, which detects and displays all devices HIKVISION on the local network.

Method of determining the IP address using the utility SADP, obviously has an advantage because in addition to IP addresses of the camera SADP utility shows: firmware version, model camera port and "activity" camera, ie the presence of a valid password.

SADP - example

Next to the activation IP camera and connect it to the network, there are two ways: using WEB browser and utility SADP.

 

The first method is to activate and connect IP camera.

Connect the camera to the computer network adapter, change network settings so that the adapter and the camera were the same subnet. Open a browser and enter the IP address of the camera. If the IP address is entered correctly, the window for setting password:

 Enabling IP cameras Hikvision

Next you need to create a password, which can consist of a set of large and small letters of the English alphabet, numbers and special characters. The password must be "strong", that have 8 to 16 characters and consist of at least two types of characters are listed above.

Window input to activate

 

After entering the password appears access the IP camera. More preferably (not necessarily) make another setting - camera configuration "Configuration - AdvancedConfiguration - Security - SecurityService" uncheck "EnableIllegalLoginLock".

 Configuring IP camera

  

The camera is activated.

 

The second method is to activate and connect IP camera.

Enables SADP and select the desired camera:

Enabling IP camera using SADP

On the right side of the utility window appears SADP block "Device Activation", coined by introducing "strong" password and click the button "OK". If the password meets the criteria of safety, the SADP displays a dialog displays information on the activation of the camera, and then in the "Security" values established in the "Active".

Important Note: IP cameras HIKVISION with firmware 5.3.0 and above can be connected to the DVR With PoE only after activation and by manual mode.

How to configure Hikvision IP camera

When you purchase an IP camera, it's necessary to make it work in your network and sometimes this task can be daunting for beginners or inexperienced users.

No worries, configuring an IP camera is not rocket science. There are a lot of different IP camera brands out there, but the configuration process is similar to all of them. In this article, I will teach you how to configure Hikvision IP camera.

IP camera network diagram

OK, the first thing I want to show you is how an IP camera can be part of your network. Looking at a diagram is the easiest way to understand how this device is connected and what are the other elements of the network.

IP camera network diagram

As you can see, this is a pretty basic diagram which has an IP camera, a PoE switch and a laptop connected together. An alternative to that diagram it to replace the switch with a router, in that case, you need to use a power supply to the camera.

Take a look again at the diagram. Can you see a lightning bolt symbol close to the IP camera? I put it there to let you know the camera is powered up by the UTP (network cable), so there's no need for an extra power supply.

PoE stands for Power Over Ethernet and that's a universal standard to send power to IP devices. If you don't know what I'm talking about, I highly recommend you to read the article: PoE switch for IP cameras.

Hikvision IP camera software

To configure your Hikvision IP camera is necessary to use a web browser such as Internet Explorer or you can use a software such as the Hikvision SADP tool.

In this article, let's focus on the SADP that allows you to configure multiple IP cameras in the network, you just need to download it and install in your computer. 

Hikvision SADP looking for IP cameras

The idea is to use such software to find your Hikvision IP camera in the network.

Hikvision SADP download

The Hikvision SADP tool is available at the manufacturer website, you can download the last version by clicking on the link below:

Download the software

How to use Hikvision SADP tool

Download and install the SADP tool in your computer and just open it up to start the Hikvision IP camera configuration process. 

If your IP camera is correctly connected to your network it might get an IP from your router. If it doesn't, you can find the camera with its default IP address which is 192.0.0.64. You can see that in the SADP tool. 

Hikvision SADP camera IP

The picture shows that the SADP tool found the Hikvision IP camera in the network and the IP is 192.0.0.64, the communication port is 8000.

There's also the information for the subnet mask which is 255.255.255.0 and the IPV4 gateway that is not configured yet and shows: 0.0.0.0.

If you not familiar with the IP network address scheme. Just ignore the IPV4 gateway information if you don't want to have the IP camera available on the Internet, but if that's the case. just replace the 0.0.0.0 with your local router IP address.

IMPORTANT: You must change the camera IP to make it work at the same IP address range your computer is working on. Let's say for example your computer network is configured as 192.168.1.1, the IP camera can use the IP 192.168.1.2 or something similar, as long as the IP is not being used by other devices in the network.

See the picture below with the camera IP changed to 192.168.1.2

Hikvision SADP IP configuration

Open the camera via a web browser

After configuring the Hikvision IP camera address, just open a web browser such as Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox,  or Internet Explorer and type the camera IP address in the URL bar.

If this is the first time you are trying to have access to a Hikvision camera, your browser will ask you to install a plugin (see the picture below).

Access Hikvision camera via a Web browser

Just click on the link to download and install the plugin and you will be able to see the camera live streaming directly into the browser.

And that's the live view streaming directly into the browser...

Hikvision IP camera gateway configuration

Alright, now you have your Hikvision IP camera working in the local network.

But perhaps you are wondering how to have remote access to the camera from the Internet. and that's also something simple to deal with.

The first thing you need to do is to configure the camera gateway, which basically means you are telling the camera who is the device it should send the traffic to when going to the Internet. This device is your Internet router.

Just open the Hikvision SADP tool again and configure the IPV4 gateway with the IP address of your router (see the picture below).

Hikvision SADP Gateway configuration

How to find the gateway information (IP)

Just in case you don't know how to find your computer or gateway (router) information, you can use the command prompt to find it out.

Click on the windows search bar, type CMD, and click the Command Prompt.

cmd command

The next step is to type the command ip config in to see the information about your computer IP address and gateway, see the picture below for the details.

command prompt gateway

The default gateway is the router's IP, meaning your computer has such information and that's the reason it can reach the Internet (by sending packets to the router). The idea is that your IP camera could do the same.

As long as you configure the camera with the correct gateway information (as described earlier) it will be able to send and receive packets from the Internet, however, you need to follow the steps to configure your mobile phone for that...

Hikvision IP camera remote access

That's all. Now you have all the information on how to configure Hikvision IP camera in the network, If you want to take the next step you to have remote access to the camera using your mobile phone, just read the article: How to access Hikvision DVR from mobile. Besides the fact the article teaches how to configure remote access for a Hikvision DVR, it also works for IP cameras.

If you are a professional that is really interested in learning even more about other details of IP networks for CCTV, just take a look at the Ultimate Security Camera Guide Volume 3 which teaches everything you need to know.

Hikvision: remote camera access

A guide to using RUT routers in conjunction with Hikvision DS-2DC2332-I, a 3MP Outdoor Network Turret Camera.

Introduction[edit | edit source]

This article is aimed at providing configuration examples for using RUT routers and Hikvision cameras in tandem. All examples provided in this article are intended to be used with any RUT routers (with the exception of RUT850) and Hikvision's DS-2CD2332-I cameras. Although this guide was created with these specific products in mind, the examples from this chapter can still be applied to other Hikvision cameras as well as other cameras in general, although there may be differences in the user interfaces of these other products, the principles should remain the same.

Configuration overview and prerequisites[edit | edit source]

Before we begin, let's overview the configuration that we are attempting to achieve and the prerequisites that make it possible.

Prerequisites:

  • A router from the RUT series (except RUT850) or TRB140;
  • A single Hikvision DS-2CD2332-I camera
  • A PC, Laptop, tablet or smartphone
  • An Ethernet cable for connecting the camera to one of the router's LAN ports
  • The router must have a SIM card with a Public Static or Public Dynamic IP address (more on IP address types here) to make remote access possible
  • (Optional) If the router's SIM card has a Public Dynamic IP address, you may want to additionally configure a Dynamic DNS hostname

Configuration scheme:

Remote access scheme with hikvision camera v2.jpg

The scheme describes a remote device (PC, laptop, smartphone, etc.) that is connecting to a RUT router via the Internet whose Public (WAN) IP is 84.15.186.115, through the port 8888. Then the RUT router redirects that device's query to it's LAN, specifically to the camera that is connected via LAN cable and has the IP address 192.168.1.64, through port 8888, with the help of a pre-configured Port Forwarding rule.

Camera configuration[edit | edit source]

This section provides the necessary information on how to configure the camera in order to make the configuration scheme described in the section above to work.

Camera's IP address[edit | edit source]


You can configure the camera by connecting to it's Web User Interface (WebUI) via a web browser. To reach the camera's WebUI, you'll need to be aware of and able to reach the camera's IP address. The Hikvision DS-2CD2332-I camera has a Static IP address (a fact that is also true for most IP cameras), which means that it will not "ask" for a DHCP lease when connected to a device that has an operational DHCP Server. Therefore, whether you connect it to your PC or RUT router, the PC or the router will have to be in the same Subnetwork (subnet) as the camera for you to be able to reach it from your local network.

This particular camera has the IP address 192.168.1.64 (if you are using a different camera model, check your camera's packaging box or user manual for its IP address). The third segment of an IP address indicates its subnet, which means that this camera is in the first (1) subnet of the 192.168.0.0 network. Because the default IP address (192.168.1.1) for all RUT routers is also in the first subnet, the camera will be reachable by any device connected to the router's LAN network if no changes to the router's LAN IP address have been made prior to that.

Otherwise, if you have made changes to the router's LAN IP address or if you are simply trying to reach the camera by connecting it directly to your PCs Ethernet board, you will need to make some changes to the router's or PC's network settings.

Connecting the camera to a RUT router[edit | edit source]


As mentioned earlier, since the camera's IP address is in the first subnet, you will need to modify the router's IP address (only if you've made changes to router's default IP address before!) so that it is also in the same subnet (at least temporarily; later you can change the camera's IP address to correspond with your router's).

  • To do so, simply log in to the router's WebUI by typing in the router's LAN IP address into the URL field of your web browser:

Logging in to a router with a changed ip address.png

NOTE: enter the router's actual IP address, not the phrase from the example.


  • Next, enter the router's user name and password (default user name: admin; default password: admin01):

Rut authorization field.png


  • Once you've logged in, navigate to the Network tab located in the upper middle of the WebUI and click on the LAN option; or in short, go to Network->LAN:

How to reach lan section.png


  • In the LAN section, locate the "IP address" field and change the router's IP address to one that is in the first subnet:

How to change lan ip.png

This can be any valid IP address in the first subnet (for example, like in the figure above 192.168.1.25; or 192.168.1.55, 192.168.1.200, 192.168.1.66, etc.), just make sure that it falls in the range of 192.168.1.0 - 192.168.1.254 and is not the same as the camera's IP address (in this case, it can't be 192.168.1.64).

Connecting the camera to a PC[edit | edit source]


Even though this guide focuses on setup that involves the camera being connected to one of the router's LAN ports, we recognize that some users may be configuring their camera separately by connecting it to a PC. Therefore, this section will provide a short guide on how to do this.

If you are connecting the camera straight to your PC's Ethernet board, you will need to configure a Static IP address on your computer. Since the camera's IP address (192.168.1.64), the computer's IP address must be in the first subnet as well. Presented below are links to two short guides on how to configure a Static IP address on a PC - one for Windows, the other for Linux.

NOTE: in the guides provided above, the default gateway is specified as 192.168.1.1, which is a RUT router's default IP address. If you're using the guides in order to learn how to reach the camera, specify the default gateway as the camera's IP address (192.168.1.64).

Camera's Web User Interface (WebUI)[edit | edit source]


  • Once you have all of the above in order, type in the camera's IP address into the URL field of your web browser and press "Enter".

Camera webui first access.png


  • If you are logging in for the first time, you will be greeted with a window such as this:

Hikvision camera activation window.png

Abide to the provided description and choose a valid password for the camera. If you've logged in to the camera before, you probably already have a password. In that case, just type in the user name (default: admin), the password (the one you chose during first log in) and click "Login".


  • Next, navigate to the Configuration section, under Network choose Basic Settings and TCP/IP. Change the IPv4 Default Gateway value to your router's LAN IP address and change (optional) the camera's IP address to the one you prefer (just make sure the camera and the router are in the same subnet):

Hikvision configuration network tcp ip.png

NOTE: once you apply these changes it may be necessary to log in to the camera again (with new settings).


  • Next, navigate to the Configuration section, under Network choose Basic Settings and Port. Change the HTTP Port value to one that is different than your router's (the default value is 80). For this example we'll be using port 8888. This done because we're trying to achieve a configuration that will allow remote access to the camera and because later we'll be using Port Forwarding to redirect all connections to a specific port, it is best that this port be different from the default one in order to avoid any problems (for example, so that the router's WebUI will also be reachable with our configuration).

Hikvision configuration network port.png


  • The camera configuration part is done as of the last step. But keep in mind that if you have changed the HTTP Port value, you'll need to specify the port next time that you connect to the camera's WebUI. When connecting to a device through a specific port, the port number is specified by adding a colon (:) and the port number after the device IP address/hostname, as such:

Camera webui access through port lan.png

Router configuration[edit | edit source]

If you're done with the camera's configuration, it's time to configure the router. First, let's overview what configurations we'll be needing to set up:

  • Enable remote HTTP access, so that the router can be reached from a remote location
  • Specify an Access Point Name (APN) for the SIM card in use, so that the router will obtain a Public IP address
  • Configure a Port Forwarding rule that redirects all connections from one Port to the camera's IP address:Port
  • (Optional) Configure Dynamic DNS hostname

Step 1: Enable remote HTTP access[edit | edit source]


  • To enable remote HTTP access, log in to the router's WebUI and navigate to the Administration page, located under the System tab; in short - go to System → Administration:


Finding system administration.png


  • Once in the Administration window, go to Access Control, fin the Enable remote HTTP access field and put a check mark next to it:


Enabling remote http.png

WARNING: once you set up any type of remote access, your router becomes vulnerable to malicious attacks from unknown hosts throughout the Internet. It is highly recommended that once you enable remote access, you also change the router's default password to a string, custom password. You can change the router's password in System → Administration → General → Administrator Password

Step 2: Set an APN[edit | edit source]


  • To set the APN, while in the router's WebUI, navigate to the Mobile page, located under the Network tab; in short - go to Network → Mobile:


Finding network mobile.png


  • Once in the Mobile window, find the APN field and enter you Internet Service Provider's APN:


Setting apn.png

  • Additional notes on APN:
    • NOTE 1: don't use the exact APN value as seen in the example above as it will not work with your SIM card. APN depends on your Internet Service Provider (ISP), therefore, your ISP should provide you with their APN or, in many case, you can find your ISP's APN with an online search.
    • NOTE 2: furthermore, it should be noted that not all SIM cards support this functionality. Static or Dynamic Public IP addresses (obtained through APN) are a paid service and setting any APN value for a SIM card that doesn't support this service will most likely result in losing your data connection. If this is the case, it can be fixed by simply deleting the APN, but it also means that remote access through WAN IP will most likely not work on your SIM card.
    • NOTE 3: in some cases the SIM card doesn't require an APN in order to obtain a Public IP address. If that is the case for you, simply check what your router's WAN IP address is - if it's already a Public IP address, then you don't need to set an APN. The easiest way to find what your WAN IP address is to log in to the router's WebUI and check the WAN widget in the Overview page. The WAN widget will be on the right side of the page, second widget from the top:

Private vs public ip.png

Step 3: Configure Port Forwarding[edit | edit source]


  • Navigate to the Firewall page, located under the Network tab:


Finding network firewall.png


  • When in the Firewall page, go to Port Forwarding tab. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and locate the New Port Forward Rule section. Make up a custom name for a new rule, set the following parameters:
    • Protocol: TCP+UDP
    • External port(s): 8888 (camera's HTTP port as set in the 3.2 section of this article)
    • Internal IP: 192.168.1.64 (camera's IP as set in the 3.2 section of this article)
    • Internal port(s): 8888

Setting port forwarding.png


  • If you plan viewing the camera's live stream via some sort of media player (for example, VLC), you should configure an additional Port Forwarding rule. Media players like VLC use the RTSP protocol. You can check the RTSP port in the camera's WebUI (as discussed in the 3.2 section of this article), but the RTSP default port is always 554 and there is no need to change it since by default the router doesn't use this port for any of its services (unless you use for some custom configuration. In that case, change the default RTSP port). So, once again make up a custom name for a new rule and set the following parameters:
    • Protocol: TCP+UDP
    • External port(s): 554 (camera's RTSP port)
    • Internal IP: 192.168.1.64 (camera's IP as set in the 3.2 section of this article)
    • Internal port(s): 554


Rtsp port forwarding.png


  • Don't forget to click Add after you've made the changes. After you have added the new rule, you will redirected to that rule's configuration window. Everything should already be in order so just click Save and your rule will be created. The new rule will appear at the bottom of the Port Forwarding Rules list, where you can check its status and make additional configurations if need be:


Port forwarding rule list.png

FINAL NOTE: as you can see, once you add the new rule, it is already enabled and ready for use. From this point no more additional configurations are required, as your remote camera monitoring configuration is fully set up. Unless you want to set up Dynamic DNS for your router, you can skip to the Testing the set up part of this guide.

(Optional) Step 4: Configure Dynamic DNS[edit | edit source]


Dynamic DNS (DDNS or DynDNS) is a method of automatically updating a name server in the Domain Name System (DNS), often in real time, with the active DDNS configuration of its configured hostnames, addresses or other information.

Dynamic DNS configuration is optional here, but it is recommended if your SIM card has a Dynamic Public IP address. You can find more information on what a Dynamic Public IP address is here, but in short it means that your WAN IP address is Dynamic and, therefore, it may change over time (usually when disconnecting/reconnecting or re-registering to a network). Dynamic DNS assigns a hostname to your IP address and constantly updates that hostname, which means that even if your IP address changes, DDNS will assign the same hostname to your new IP, making your router reachable via the same hostname at any time.

You must use an external DDNS service to create a hostname and assign it to your IP. RUT routers support many such services. You can find a complete list of supported DDNS services in the Services → Dynamic DNS section of the router's WebUI. You can also find guides on how to configure some of these services in our wiki:

The guides contain information on how to configure both the router and the third party service. Choose one according to your liking.

Testing the set up[edit | edit source]

Now that you are done configuring your devices, you should probably test out if the configuration is working properly. We'll describe two common ways of doing so:

  • via a media player
  • via a web browser

VLC player[edit | edit source]


You can view the live stream from your camera using the VideoLAN Client (VLC) player. VLC works on all systems and can be download from here.

  • Download and install the VLC player on your computer.

  • Open the player. Go to Media → Open Network Stream... (at the top left corner of the window) or simply press Crtl+N on your keyboard:


Vlc media.png


  • In the Network stream window, you'll need to enter the camera's Real Time Streaming Protocol (RTSP) address (you can find an online RTPS link generator for Hikvision cameras here). It should look something like this:
rtsp://admin:[email protected]:554/live

Replace the relevant data with your own parameters and click Play:

Vlc network player.png

NOTE: make sure that you have configured the necessary RTSP Port Forwarding rule as described in section 4.2 of this article. And don't forget to specify the correct RTSP port, which can be viewed and changed in the camera's WebUI as described in the 3.2 section of this article (if you haven't made changes to the RTSP port, it will be 554 by default).

Web browser[edit | edit source]


To test the configuration via web browser, simply enter the router's WAN IP address into the URL field of the browser but add a colon (:) and the HTTP port number at the end like so:

Login to camera wan.png

Don't forget to replace the parameters with those relevant to your own configuration.

Doing this will will redirect to camera's WebUI. While you can reach the camera's WebUI using any web browser, you will only be able to view the video stream when using Internet Explorer. This is because Hikvision cameras (like most) use a Netscape Plugin Application Programming Interface (NPAPI) for streaming video via HTTP. Unfortunately, many browsers like Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox have discontinued the support for NPAPI type plug-ins. While there are workarounds, like using older browser versions or making certain configurations to the browser, they are not foolproof and may cause the browser to stop working properly, therefore, they will not be described in this article.

To find out how to view the camera's live stream, use Microsoft's Internet Explorer (instructions provided below) or use media player, like VLC (instructions provided above).

Internet Explorer[edit | edit source]


The browser we'll be using for this example is Microsoft's Internet Explorer. To reach the cameras WebUI, enter the router's WAN IP address into the URL field of the browser but add a colon (:) and the HTTP port number at the end like so:

Don't forget to replace the parameters with those relevant to your own configuration.


Once you've logged in, you should be greeted with a window such as this:

Click on the link in the Live view window. Doing this will download the necessary plug-in installation file. Close Internet Explorer and run this installation file from your computer.

Once you are done with the installation, launch Internet Explorer and log in to the camera again. You may be prompted to allow access for the plug-in to be used with the browser. If so, click "Yes" and proceed. After this you should be able to view the camera's live stream.

Other cameras[edit | edit source]

As mentioned in the introduction to this article, the configurations described here apply to the Hikvision DS-2CD2332-I camera. While that is true, the basic principles used to achieve this configuration should still apply to other products as well. For example, in order to achieve remote access, the configuration from the router's side will be practically identical and only things like IP addresses and port number should differ. From the camera's side, the User Interface may be different but the configuration parameters should remain the same.
