hello, I noticed that on the hikconnect app only the administrator can enable alarm output, while shared accounts cannot enable the alarm, cannot this problem be solved?
also for recordings, you can only see main stream and not sub stream. who has a low internet upload like me: 0.90 Mbps this is a problem

Did your Hik-Connect App notify you that there was a new version available?

For other folks, the latest versions are here - Hikvision App Store

Phil - yes. When I open it a popup notifies me of a new version. Of course you have to download the apk, find it in storage, then use package installer to update. Some interesting updates in this new version.

The notifications are still broke me for, I can either get notifications with the notifications alert on my phone or no notifications at all, even in the notifications tab on Hik-Connect. Very annoying that I can’t get them silently in the tab.

new version for me which i updated to yesterday has caused issues now when trying to answer my doorbell the screen goes black and shows a loading wheel and looks frozen. Unable to answer my doorbell now.

I can get alerts and notifications after the event, but pretty useless now

Hikvision UK have provided the attached letter to explain the changes that brought about the use of their own web portal for their Apps.

Ok, this is really cool. Looks like Hik revamped the notification system on the app. Check this out:

This is the initial notification of a smart event:



Here's what you get if you tap that notification. Notice a couple of things: you get time, source, playback, AND the ability to go straight to live view:


Now click the three dots in the upper right corner and you can filter by date for that camera and look at all the events! Cool!

Bizarre I just searched on the App Store (Apple) and it's still the same version v4.8.0.841770

[EDIT] Looks like its only available for Android at the moment.

Apple is still v4.8.0.841770
