Add a Device by Hik-Connect Domain

Add a Device by Hik-Connect Domain

For devices which support Hik-Connect service (a cloud service provided by Hikvision), you can add them manually by Hik-Connect domain.

  • Make sure the device is powered on.

  • If adding access control device, you should activate the device and set the device network information via other clients (e.g., iVMS-4200 client software) before adding it to this client.

  1. On the device list page, tap > Manual Adding to enter the Add Device page.
  2. Select Hik-Connect Domain as the adding type.
  3. Enter the device serial No. manually.
    • By default, the device serial No. is on the device label.

    • For the video intercom devices, when entering the serial No. of the indoor station, the corresponding door station will also be added to the Mobile Client automatically.

    • An indoor station can be linked to multiple door stations.

  4. Tap to search the device.
  5. Tap Add on the Result page.
  6. Enter the device verification code.

    The device will be added successfully.

    • The default device verification code is usually on the device label. If no verification code found, enter the device verification code you created when enabling Hik-Connect service.

    • For details about enabling Hik-Connect service, see Enable Hik-Connect Service for Device.

  7. Optional: Tap Configure DDNS to configure DDNS.
    • See Set DDNS for details.

    • After DDNS being enabled, the device will be accessed via IP address in priority, so that remote configuration of the device will be supported, and the streaming speed will be faster than streaming via Hik-Connect service.

    • If you skip this step, the device will be accessed via Hik-Connect service.

  8. Tap Finish.
  9. Optional: Delete the device.
    • On the device list, if the list is in list mode, swipe the device name to the left and tap > Delete Device.

    • On the device list, if the list is in thumbnail mode, tap the device name or tap , and then tap Delete Device.
