Hi

I have problems with the alarm push with android app IVMS-4500

Are there any alternative android software that supports push notifications?

Thanks

Hi @derekz

For Hikvision users we now recommend that they use Hik-Connect instead of iVMS-4500.

What NVR and/or camera models do you have? What firmware versions are your devices currently running?

Thanks for the reply DAN
I'd like to understand the security level of hik connect:
Are recorded video or camera live uploaded to company servers?

As soon as I have time I will let you know the model and firm of my camera.

Like almost any app, Hikvision sends some data to it's own servers as well as third party analytics companies servers. What that data consists of I do not know. However, I can confirm the Android versions of iVMS-4500 and Hik-Connect I have used (I have only ever used Android app-store versions) do work communicating directly with your NVR/s if you connect directly to your NVR/s using the IP/Domain method.
e.g. I can block all app network access to any addresses apart from my own servers (using a firewall type app) and the apps continue to work.

I know but I would not want to make the situation worse, I read that with the recent firmware compability with the apps is lost, but I am afraid that it has now happened.
