    Motion event setup hit-and-miss with wrong format preview images

    I think I have the same problem in both MacOs and Windows: the preview images when setting up motion events or smart events aren't in the same 16:9 format as the camera feed. So how do you set up zones accurately when the preview image is squashed horizontally?

    FAQ How many Hik-Connect accounts am I able to connect to my Hikvision IP Video Intercom Door Station?

    Thank you, Kyle. Are there any advantages to feeding the indoor station from the mainstream or sub stream given that both will be 720p or less?

    Recording door entry system on NVR, and also adding extra door entry screen in house

    FWIW, on my Mac, neither SADP Tool nor iVMS-4200 sees the IP of the main door station. However, if you have a working indoor station, you can find it in the settings. Other platforms may actually work.

    MacOS HikVision on a Mac

    @DataDave, I haven't found a way to do that natively but can recommend the Parallels Desktop solution mention by Dan. You can also view RTSP live streams via VLC in MacOs, locally and remotely.

    Small IP Outdoor Camera.

    I'm obviously not visualising your bird box correctly if the colour of the camera makes a difference to anyone except a bird. I haven't any experience of current Hikvision bullets but you'll need to make sure that you choose the right lens for your required FOV. It's pretty small but even at 6in...

    Small IP Outdoor Camera.

    When you said you were hoping to mount the camera in a way which would not attract attention, I assumed you were not planning to stick a CCTV warning sign next to it - which I gather is compulsory if filming outside your property (as is the correct management of any potentially private footage)...

    Small IP Outdoor Camera.

    If it's going inside a box, you could look at the smaller indoor-rated cameras as they should get sufficient protection from the elements. I squeezed an indoor-rated DS-2DE2204IW-DE3 PTZ camera inside a garden lantern and it's very happy out there. Make sure you're not breaking any laws...

    Hikvision DS-KH6230-WTE1 indoor screen unable to get additional cameras working

    Pleased to hear it as I have other fish to fry, like sleeping, eating, sleeping and eating, in that order.

    Hikvision DS-KH6230-WTE1 indoor screen unable to get additional cameras working

    I've only now looked at the images attached to your OP and noted your device channel number. All my added cameras are assigned to channel 1. If that doesn't work, I'm out of ideas. PS. All my added cameras are also on port 554 (even though I have forwarded their port numbers for another reason)...

    Hikvision DS-KH6230-WTE1 indoor screen unable to get additional cameras working

    Have you enabled DHCP on the 6230? If you do that it should mine the IP addresses of all your Hik cameras automatically, without changing the default port number. Once it has got the IPs you can turn DHCP off again. Otherwise, if your camera IPs are showing in SADP Tool, you should be able to...

    Recording door entry system on NVR, and also adding extra door entry screen in house

    Good luck with the recording. I don't use an NVR or a storage server but it's impossible to record any event from the door station to an SD card in an indoor station or to my hard drive. There's a clue in the door station iVMS-4200 config which lists none of the usual event options. It's an...

    Hikvision DS-KH6230-WTE1 indoor screen unable to get additional cameras working

    What are your camera sub-streams set to? They need to be H264 and within the resolution supported by the video intercom (1024x600 in the case of the KH6230). If either H or W is set to higher then I don't think you will see the feed.

    If you put all your cams on the same port only one will work. Assign each cam its own port number.
