How To setup a Hikvision IP camera with an NVR (Network Video Recorder)

To set up a Hikvision IP camera with an NVR (Network Video Recorder), follow these steps:

  • Connect the IP camera to the same network as the NVR. You can do this by connecting the camera to a PoE (Power over Ethernet) switch or using a separate power adapter and connecting the camera to a router.
  • Log in to the NVR and go to the "Camera Management" or "IP Camera" menu.
  • Click the "Add" button to add the camera to the NVR.
  • In the "Add Camera" window, select "Manual Add" and enter the camera's IP address, port number, and login credentials (username and password). The default port number for Hikvision cameras is 8000.
  • Click the "Test" button to test the connection between the camera and the NVR. If the connection is successful, you should see a live view of the camera.
  • Configure the camera settings in the NVR, such as the recording schedule, motion detection, and video quality.
  • Save the camera settings and start recording.
Note: It's recommended to use Hikvision cameras with Hikvision NVRs for optimal performance and compatibility. Also, make sure that the firmware of the camera and NVR are up to date for the best experience.
