HikCentral - 5 Things To Know

HikCentral is a Central Management System (CMS) designed for managing distributed sites or a large grouping of cameras recording on Hikvision NVR's, DVR's and CVR's.

Searching for a new CMS solution? You may be expanding your network or looking for features on top of free software such as IVMS 4200. Here are 5 things you should know if you are considering HikCentral as an option.

1) Easy setup - If you have ever had to set up a traditional CMS, you know you need to separately add your devices, import their recording schedules and then synchronise camera names. HikCentral's one step configuration means that this process can be done simultaneously so you can set up quickly and efficiently. 



2) Highly customisable - HikCentral will have most features that you are looking for in a Central Management System, but if a particular feature is not available, there is a possibility to integrate with 3rd Party software. As an example, integration with Netgenium iP Speakers is currently being developed.


3) Easy Video Management - HikCentral allows you to:

  • Label specific parts of a video which can then be searched.
  • Mask any sensitive parts of a video.
  • Encrypt the file for safe searching.
Additionally, video files can be protected from deletion by adding a lock so they are not overwritten, allowing you to review footage at a later date.



4) Alarm escalation - There may be a situation when an alarm has been triggered and security staff may not be available. If no one responds to that alarm in a specified time period, that alarm can be escalated to alert senior guards. Making sure that the alarm is attended to by someone. Alarm notifications can also be displayed on a video wall to draw attention when an event has occurred. 


5) High-efficiency playback - Unlike IVMS 4200 where you view live footage and playback on separate windows, HikCentral shows both live footage and playback simultaneously on the same display. For larger operations, you can connect up to 8 auxiliary screens for multi-task operations such as live view, alarm escalation and device health monitoring.
