The Hik-Connect mobile client (Android/iOS), which can generally manage Hikvision products, is designed for the phone or tablet. With the Mobile Client, you can remotely control devices (NVRs, DVRs, network cameras, indoor stations, doorbells, security control panels, the Pyronix devices, the access control devices, etc) via Wi-Fi, 3G, or 4G networks. You can also share your devices to other accounts and use devices shared from other users.
Installing the software
- Log onto the App Store.
- Enter “Hik-Connect” to search the mobile client software.
- Download and install it to your Android/ iPhone.
The first time you run the Mobile Client, you should select the region where your devices are located. Otherwise, the live view, playback and alarm notification of the devices will fail.
Visitor mode allows you to manage devices on the Mobile Client without registration. When you log in as a visitor, a visitor account will be created for you automatically, and the account will not change on the same phone or tablet.
You can register an account by your mobile phone number or your email address. With a registered account, you can log in to the Mobile Clients running on different mobile phones or tablets, which provides convenience for managing your devices.
Access control is the selective restriction of access to a place or other resources. After adding access control devices to the Mobile Client, you can remotely control the doors, and configure duration in which the doors remain open. You can also filter and view access control device’s logs, which provide the information of access control events and related alarms, such as access controller tampering alarm. Besides the above-mentioned functionality, you can change supper password of the access control device.
Notifications about events triggered on the devices can be pushed to the Mobile Client if you enable the function. You can also check the event information on the Mobile Client and filter the information.
Answer Call from Indoor Station
If no one answers the call via the indoor station for a while, the call will be forwarded to the Mobile Client. You can answer the call, view the live video of the door station, as well as open the door.
