How to integrate Hikvision NVR into C4


sdmat

Recommended Posts

I have an HC800 on OS3.

I have a Hikvision NVR 7608NI. The NVR was updated to some Hikvision firmware for C4 (obtained from Hikvision support). However, the NVR configuration doesn't have the "Security" tab.

My dealer hasn't integrated Hikvision into C4 before. He wants me to be able to browse to each camera feed by IP to be able to integrate. 

My network is set up as 10.0.1.X and the NVR is on that network. It then creates a feed for each camera with IP 192.168.254.X.

Not sure where to go from there.

Any advice?

Thanks,

Scott

What do you want to integrate exactly?

1) are you trying to control the NVR via control4 (NVR HDMI out going to the TV and control the menus of the NVR)

2) Or view the camera feeds on mobile phones/C4 GUI?

For number 1 you need:
a) C4 customer firmware (seems you already have it)
b) add the NVR driver to the project
c) Add the correct IP and credentials (I think it can be done via sddp as well)

For number 2 you need a camera driver. I use the Generic Camera Driver. There is a post somewhere on this forum where you can get it from. (thats how I do it. Im sure there are better ways to accomplish this, but this works fine for me. The C4 Hikvision camera driver doesnt give me the correct URL stream for some reason)
a) Download the Generic Camera Driver
b) Assign the correct IP and Port for each camera. I have the same NVR and for me, this is how I get the streaming URL for each camera:

NVR's IP: 111.222.333.444

If using POE:
Camera1 would be: 111.222.333.444:65001
Camera2 would be: 111.222.333.444:65002
Camera3 would be: 111.222.333.444:65003
and etc.. 

Now you just have to assign the streaming URL. If you have Hikvision cameras, it should look something like this:

RSTP: Streaming/Channels/X0Y
- "X" corresponds the NVR channel
- "Y" corresponds to the main or sub stream. 

So, if you want to grab the sub stream of channel number 1, the URL would look something like this: 

- Streaming/Channels/102

So, if you want to grab the main stream of channel number 5, the URL would look something like this: 

- Streaming/Channels/501

MJPEG: Streaming/channels/2/httppreview

Snapshot: Streaming/channels/2/picture

Good luck! :)

To see cams plugged into the hik nvr, you need to enable the virtual host setting - tell your dealer to look for the appropriate articles on how to do it in the C4 knowledge base (just search for hikvision).

 

The above is largely correct off the top of my head by the way, but the kb aticles detail the steps.

Good morning,

       I am also intending to install 5 HIKvision IP PTZ cameras into a new build.

Simple question.

Can i control the camera pan, tilt and zoom via the control 4 app via the remote on the TV or do i still need the camera system keyboard.

Appreciate any support and advice.

Thanks,

Nick P.
