Annke N46PCK NVR Firmware Update?

Hi,

I have a Annke N46PCK NVR, it is a Hikvision 16ch OEM NVR. I am looking to update the firmware and have contacted Annke support but they state the box is up to date, I don't believe so. I also have a Hikvision DS-7616NI-K2 / 16p its updated and running okay. The Annke NVR is very similar to the Hik NVR (exact same layout and style just an Annke logo) but it is missing some features like Smart Events. I would like to update the Annke Nvr to the latest Hik firmware, possibly enable smart events. I have done this already for the Annke 8mp ip cameras that came with the NVR and it worked well with the Hik firmware. I have attached a screen shot of my NVR's configuration screen. I believe the firmware version is outdated compared to the what is available on the Hikvision UK portal. However I cannot figure out what firmware I should use to update the NVR to. I think it is a K series but then is it K1 or K2 model? Any help would be appreciated.

I have attached a link for the Annke NVR specification.

Hi @Paul Bradley,

Would this be the first time you've updated the N46PCK NVR's firmware?

Looking at the pictures of the back of your NVR on Annke's product page for it, it certainly looks similar to a 16 port Hikvision model. Probably, either the DS-7616NI-K1 or the DS-7616NI-K2-16P. Unfortunately, only Annke can tell you which one it is for certain and what firmware (K1/K2) from the Hikvision Portal here is correct:

I believe that this is the firmware version that Annke have recently provided for your NVR (it may well be Hikvision firmware):

I would double-check this with them and try this one if you haven't already, unless another member has upgraded the same NVR as yours from Hikvision's portal and can provide the link to the version they used.

Hi @Kyle,

Yes it would be the first time I updated the N46PCK NVR's firmware. I have contacted Annke support but they are little help just generic copy and paste replies. Would my current firmware be more recent than that on their website as its v3.4.97 build 181119?

I have not took the chance of updating the firmware to Hikvision firmware, not knowing if its K1 or K2 yet, but with nightly false alarms on basic motion detection I am considering doing it and if it doesn't work just replace the NVR.

Not necessarily - e.g. V3.4.101_build180904 would be more recent ('.101' is actually later than '.97').

Usually trying the wrong version will just result in the NVR rejecting it, but it has been known to brick some of the older / grey import / rebadged models in the past, so it would be riskier in your case.

Hi @Paul Bradley , In case that you didn't try it yet... you can update your Annke NVR with NVR_K74_BL and this will change the firmware to Hikvision ... i just tried it to mine which is exactly the same NVR as yours and it's working but I had to lower the resolution from 2160p to 1768p as I had "no resources" error when viewing the main stream on all my cameras. Don't know if there is any other apart from lowering the resolution to fix that error that i got :)

Hi @HarrisCy thank you for the reply. I am curious how has the NVR preformed since your update? Also have you got feature like Smart Events now since the update?

Hi @Paul Bradley . It working ok apart from the "no resources" error that I got if I try to put the resolution to 2160p for my cameras....Lower resolutions work ok for all of my 8 (also upgraded from Annke to Hikvision) cameras. I even upgrade both of my NVRs to the latest firmware V4.30.061 and it's upgraded with no problems...Smart events are working ok and with notification on phone with HIK-connect also

Hola,

Tengo un NVR Annke N46PCK, es un NVR OEM de 16 canales de Hikvision. Estoy buscando actualizar el firmware y me he puesto en contacto con el soporte de Annke, pero afirman que la caja está actualizada, no lo creo. También tengo un Hikvision DS-7616NI-K2 / 16p, está actualizado y funcionando bien. El Annke NVR es muy similar al Hik NVR (exactamente el mismo diseño y estilo, solo un logotipo de Annke) pero le faltan algunas características como Smart Events. Me gustaría actualizar Annke Nvr al último firmware de Hik, posiblemente habilitar eventos inteligentes. Ya hice esto para las cámaras ip Annke de 8mp que venían con el NVR y funcionó bien con el firmware Hik. He adjuntado una captura de pantalla de la pantalla de configuración de mi NVR. Creo que la versión de firmware está desactualizada en comparación con lo que está disponible en el portal de Hikvision UK. Sin embargo, no puedo averiguar qué firmware debo usar para actualizar el NVR. Creo que es una serie K, pero ¿es el modelo K1 o K2? Cualquier ayuda sería apreciada.

He adjuntado un enlace para la especificación Annke NVR.

Hola paul.
Tengo las mismas cámaras y el mismo nvr que tú. ¿Podría decirme con qué firmware de hikvision ha actualizado las cámaras?
¿Ha logrado actualizar el nvr también y lo ha hecho, podría informar cómo funciona y con qué firmware de hikvision lo ha actualizado?
Muchas gracias por tu respuesta.
