The VESTA Alarm Systems (Wireless Alarm and Hybrid Alarm) allow the integration of Hikvision IP Cameras, therefore adding another of the leading CCTV brands on the market to the possible third-party integrations with VESTA’s innovative intrusion panels. In this way, it is possible to combine advanced functions with the alarm panel and its linked devices.
Advanced IP Camera Integration
Hikvision IP Cameras offer new possibilities when combined with the VESTA alarm intrusion panel: live image display, photo capture and photo sequence request in case of alarm event. All this through the SmartHomeSec App. In addition, they have the automatic Plug & Play system, which allows the IP search of all the Hikvision cameras available on the network. Likewise, it is possible to link the IP cameras with the security zones with automatic capture of sequence of photos in the event of an alarm.
For this we only need a panel via radio or hybrid panel of the VESTA Alarm and an IP Camera (ONVIF / CGI) from Hikvision. It is important to note that we must update our panel previously, which will be done automatically if we follow the following route: Settings> Panel> Updates> Apply the latest update.
