If you are running the camera on its own (using a MicroSD card) and not recording to an NVR then you will need to log in to the camera using a browser to set up smart events.
All you have to do is open a browser on a PC connected to the same local network as the camera, then enter the camera's IP address into the address bar (not the google search bar), and a login page will be presented for you to log in to the camera and manage all of its settings.
If you are unsure of the camera's IP address you can install the Hikvision SADP Tool onto your PC and that will display the network details of all Hikvision devices on your local network.
