Access IP Camera Web Interface from NVR Web Interface

 

Step 1: Connect the NVR to the router or network switch.

Step 2: Connect your PC/MAC to the same network as the NVR.

Step 2: Find the IP address of the NVR. This can be done following ways:

        – Connect your PC/MAC to the same network as the NVR

        – Run the SADP Tool application. SADP will show the device name with IP address.

       – On the local menu, go to System –> Network –> IPV4

Step 3: Open the browser and input the NVR IP address. This will take you to the NVRs web interface.

Step 4: Login to NVR and go to Configuration –> Network –> Advanced settings –> Other –> Check the box for “Enable Virtual host” –> Save.

Step 5: Go to System –> Camera Management –> Click the blue link under “Join” to login to the camera directly.

Add Port Forwarded IP Camera to NVR

.

.

Step 1: Access the camera using the “SADP Tool” application and assign a static IP address.

.

Step 2: Login to the camera from browser(IE Preferred) with IP address and assign port numbers. To access the port page, go to Configuration –> Network –> Basic –> Port and change the HTTP Port, RTSP Port and Server Port.

.

For multiple cameras, perform this step with different port numbers for each camera. For example, for camera 1 use “80,554,8000”, for camera 2 use “81,555,8001” etc.

.

.

Step 4: go to https://canyouseeme.org/ to find your public IP address and check to see if the ports are open.

.

Step 5: Login to the NVR and go to Camera management page. 

.

Step 6: Select a channel and click “Modify” –> Change adding method to “Manual” –> Enter the Public IP Address –> Enter the new server port assigned to the camera –> Enter the –> Click “OK”

How to configure 

POS Connection for NVR?

.

.

.

Hinovision 5 Series and 7 Series NVR/DVRs support Point of Sale (POS) system integration. This tutorial will demonstrate how to retrieve POS data from Network with Hinovision iVMS-Pro software.

.

Once the POS setting is configured on Hinovision NVR/DVR. NVR/DVR will be able to receive transaction data (Receipt) from POS, overlay the POS info on designated screen and store the info on hard drive for future reference. You can conduct video verification for the ongoing transaction and review the transaction with event play back feature.

.

POS data can be received from either RS232 port, USB port with RS232 converter or Network. You can also use Serial to Ethernet Converter to connect with multiple RS232 sources. Typically a 16-channel unit will support up to 8 POS connection and a 32-channel unit will support up to 16 POS connection.

.

POS configuration can be accessed through Hinovision iVMS-Pro client software and NVR screen.

.

How to Configure No-IP DDNS on 

Hinovision NVR?

.

.

.

Hinovision NVR supports multiple popular DDNS such as DynDNS and No-IP, etc. This tutorial will demonstrate how to configure No-IP DDNS on Hinovision NVR.

.

Once the DDNS is configured on Hinovision NVR, you will be able to access the NVR directly from Internet instead of from Local Area Network. This provides the possibility for remote access anywhere in the world.

.

Instead of using a private IP address (192.168.x.x, 10.x.x.x) or Public IP address (which is quite expensive), you can use URL and domain name. And No-IP basic service is provided free of charge, yet you will have to confirm the hostname every 30 days.

.

NVR DDNS configuration can be accessed through NVR Screen, Web Interface or Hinovision iVMS-Pro/Lite client software.

.

Test Environment 

NVR Model: NVR516P16-I4

NVR Firmware: V3.4.82 build 161207

.

Router Model: RT-AC1900

Router Firmware:  V3.0.0.4.380_4164

.

1.Configure the port forwarding/DMZ settings on the router, mapping the port for the NVR or put the NVR IP address in the DMZ zone. Router configuration differs from router to router, in this demonstration we will use RT-AC1900 from Asus.

.

Note:  

Currently most Hinovision NVR uses following 3 ports:

80(HTTP port), 8000 (control information), 554 (RTSP port)

Ports 80, 8000, 554 can be modified in the web configuration.

.

3.Click on Yes for Enable DMZ option
4.Enter the IP address of IP camera you wish to map
5.Click on Apply, wait  for the router to finish configuration

.

6.Enter www.NO-IP.com  in the Server Address field
7.Enter the domain name you created during registration. You can always manage the domain name later in the NO-IP control panel.
8.Enter your username and password for www.NO-IP.com
9.Click on Save

Note: Please check the DNS status before configuring the DDNS, 8.8.8.8 is recommended

Net Fault-Tolerance mode will set all ports to same IP, if one port fails, other port will take over.

Load balance mode will balance the load between all Port, please make sure the switch support link aggregation when you use this mode.

Multi-address mode allows you to have different IP for each of the port and thus you can have the device connect to different network.

How to configure 

Intrusion Detection 

on Hinovision IPC?

.

Hinovision Technical Team

Ver.1.0

.

Hinovision IPC supports multiple VCA (Video Content Analysis) features such as Intrusion Detection, Line Crossing Detection, etc. This tutorial will demonstrate how to configure Intrusion Detection on Hinovision IP Camera.

.

Once the Intrusion Detection on is configured on Hinovision IPC, you will be able to receive audible warning on NVR once is triggered, you can set the NVR to do full screen viewing for the triggered channel, the IPC can send you email with event picture attached, you can also control other camera to focus on certain area for a more detailed shot. This provides a new way for video surveillance.

.

IPC Intrusion Detection configuration can be accessed through Web Interface, Hinovision iVMS-Pro/Lite client software, if the IPC is connected with NVR, you can also configure it from the NVR screen.

How to Configure SimpleDDNS on 

Hinovision NVR?

.

Hinovision Technical Team

Ver.1.0

.

Hinovision NVR supports multiple popular DDNS such as DynDNS and No-IP, in addition it also supports SimpleDDNS which provides exclusive free service for Hinovision products.

.

Once the DDNS is configured on Hinovision NVR, you will be able to access the NVR directly from Internet instead of from Local Area Network. This provides the possibility for remote access anywhere in the world.

.

Instead of using a private IP address (192.168.x.x, 10.x.x.x) or Public IP address (which is quite expensive), you can use URL and domain name. And SimpleDDNS service is provided free of charge.

.

NVR DDNS configuration can be accessed through NVR Screen, Web Interface or Hinovision iVMS-Pro/Lite client software.

.

Test Environment 

NVR Model: NVR516P16-I4

NVR Firmware: V3.4.82 build 161207

.

Router Model: RT-AC1900

Router Firmware:  V3.0.0.4.380_4164

.

1.Configure the port forwarding/DMZ settings on the router, mapping the port for the NVR or put the NVR IP address in the DMZ zone. Router configuration differs from router to router, in this demonstration we will use RT-AC1900 from Asus.

.

Note:  

Currently most Hinovision NVR uses following 3 ports:

80(HTTP port), 8000 (control information), 554 (RTSP port)

Ports 80, 8000, 554 can be modified in the web configuration.

.

3.Click on Yes for Enable DMZ option
4.Enter the IP address of IP camera you wish to map
5.Click on Apply, wait  for the router to finish configuration
