1. HIKVISION Hik-Connect Service - Introduction
After the inial Hikvision camera setup, we’ll want to register the camera’s to the Hik-Connect service.
This service is the interface between the camera’s on our local area network and the Hik-Connect App you’ll be using on your smartphone or tablet to access those camera’s when you’re outside your own network (remote access).
2. HIKVISION Hik-Connect Service - User registration
The first time you have to register yourself to the Hik-Connect service.
Open a web browser and go to https://www.hik-connect.com/.
Click the Register button and follow the screen to register your new account.
3. HIKVISION Hik-Connect Service - Add camera's
Enter the camera’s serial number and click the Search button.
You can find the serial number in the Hikvision SADP tool we discussed in the previous post.
Only use the last 9 digits of the Device Serial No.
In the next post, we’ll install the Hik-Connect App on a Android or iOS based smartphone or tablet to monitor our Hikvision camera surveillance system.
