Hik-Connect’s P2P functionality allows your NVR (Recorder) or Camera to connect to the Hik-Connect service for alarm push notification and Live View.

It allows you to Live View your CCTV footage remotely without the need to setup port forwarding rules on your modem/router.
All you need to do is create an account and add your devices into it, then you can enjoy the real-time CCTV footage from anywhere in the world. It also allows you to play back recorded video via the “bandwidth friendly” substeam! When motion is detected by your cameras, you can get an instant message notification (or emails if you prefer) from the Hik-connect app.
If you are not able to connect your cameras to Hik-Connect, you may have acquired Grey Market camera’s running older firmware version. Updating these Grey Market sourced equipment can be problematic as they tend to revert to their original Chinese language if defaulted or upgraded form the official firmware update sites. We advise users to buy authentic Australian cameras and equipment from authorised sellers to minimise this risk.
