    How to setup Hik-Connect
    Hik-Connect is a new platform from Hikvision designed to make setting up remote access quicker and easier than using a DDNS or static IP. With this setup guide, you will no longer need any port forwarding. It’s as easy as registering your customer an account, then scanning the QR code on the recorder.

    Before you start you’ll need your customer’s email address or mobile number, you’ll need access to their chosen email or phone to receive a verification code, and you’ll need access to the NVR or DVR.

    Setting up the recorder
    1. First, gain access to the DVR/NVR
    2. Right click and navigate to Menu>Configuration>Network>Platform Access, and tick the Enable box
    3. You’ll now be asked to read and accept the terms and conditions
    4. When prompted, set a Verification code.  This can be any alpha-numeric code between 6 and 12 characters
    5. The Status will now show Online.  If not, please see troubleshooting at the end of this guide.

    Setting up the Hik-connect app
    6. From yours or the customers phone, download the Hik-Connect App from the App store or Google Play
    7. Once installed, open the app and you’ll be presented with the login screen, tap on Register
    8. Follow the on screen instructions to setup a Hik-connect account. You will need to verify the account by using a valid email address or phone number

    10. You have now registered the Hik-Connect account. Make a note of the username and password. These login details will need to re-enter if their phone is reset, the app is reinstalled, or they want to use Hik-connect on another device.

    Adding the recorder to Hik-connect
    11. You’ll now be taken into the app and prompted to add a device. Click the + symbol to add a device and the phones camera will open.
    12. Now on the recorder navigate to the Platform Access page, right click and go to Menu>Configuration>Network>Platform Access.
    13. Scan the QR code with the phones camera.
    14. If prompted, enter the verification code you created and skip the port settings
    15. The cameras connected to the recorder will now be visible on the mobile Hik-Connect app.  Select the camera you want to view and click Start Live View

     

    Troubleshooting

    I haven’t received a verification code: Please check your spam folders and email filters. If the problem persists consider registering with a different email or mobile number.

    Hik-Connect status is offline: Ensure the enable box is ticked on the ‘Platform Access’ page and that your unit has a working connection to the internet.  Check the network settings are correct for the network you are connected to.

    I get a message saying the device is already registered: Devices can only be added to a single account. To view the device on multiple phones or tablets, you just need to install Hik-Connect app, and then log in with the details of the Hik-Connect account the device is registered to.

    I don’t have an option for platform access: Please contact your supplier/installer with your device’s serial number and current firmware version as the unit may need a firmware update. This information can be found in the ‘Maintenance’ menu.

    SYSTEM X

    The brand new System X range consists of premium mounting solutions for video walls, digital signage and menu boards and is also ideal for the broadcast and video conferencing markets. The mounting system is lightweight yet incredibly strong and has a high-end aesthetic quality which gives a premium finish without sacrificing any of the reliability that the product is renowned for. Designed for multi-screen installations, the range is universally compatible with all video wall screens and is available in an almost endless variety of configurations – either as a ready made kit for convenience or in modular component form for more specialist custom requirements. The range is also compatible with the System 2 collar and pole system and when used together creates one of the most versatile and comprehensive ranges available on the market today.

    This range of bracketry has a premium finish giving a contemporary, high-end aesthetic quality.  The 8 point tool-less micro-adjustment system allows for seamless screen alignment.  Cable management on the bracketry hides any untidy cabling and adds to the stylish finish.  The included screen spacer is designed to eliminate calculations and guess work when installing the horizontal rails.

    OCULi Wireless PIR Camera

    OCULi is a product range of battery powered wireless, PIR motion sensors which have integrated colour/monochrome cameras and infrared illuminators. These products provide rapid video verification of alarm events using the mobile phone 3G network. A dedicated cloud server and web portal provides a full monitoring system as well as an easy way to set up and control the detectors. Alarms and alerts are sent to the OCULi mobile phone app as Push Notification as an alternative means of monitoring.

    OCULi System Overview

    OCULi uses the mobile phone 3G network and can be sited anywhere there is a network signal available. Simply sign up to SIM usage on a rolling monthly contract and you are ready to go. (SIM price includes the use of the cloud server). Images are streamed over 3G giving exceptional speed and quality of delivery. Connection time to the network using our roaming SIM is fast and non network specific so the strongest signal will always be used. All video & data is stored on the SD card and cloud server until it is deleted by the user.

    Superior VGA 640×480 colour video starts filming in just a few milliseconds after detection ensuring that events are not missed. Unrivalled monochrome night-time clarity is achieved using powerful IR LED lighting.

    PIR detection range is 15 metres x 90° using a Quad Pyro Sensor and falls well within the camera’s field of view of 135° to ensure detected movements remain in view. Bluetooth® facilitates easy set up using the mobile phone app to determine signal strength, camera view and PIR detection coverage. Sensitivity, pulse counting and AND gating are all configurable using the App or web portal.

    Each OCULi detector is programmable to automatically set and un-set up to 3 times per day on a 7 day timer.

    On site Arm/Dis-Arm can over-ride the automatic schedule by using the OCULi phone App.

    Quad pyro technology minimises false alarms and ensures superior detection performance. OCULi is fully tamper protected with IR anti-masking, 3 axis inertia sensing and enclosure tampers.

    TimeLine video® feature ensures that the product is working correctly and provides an extra level of surveillance.
