    OK, so in BI I have:
    - PTZ enabled.
    - Camera's digital input or motion checked under triggers.
    - Get events with PullPointSubscription checked.
    - Send a push notification to mobile app configured with a .wav file.

    In the cam I have:
    - PIR Alarm checked.
    - The alarm schedule set all purple.
    - Under Linkage Method, Trigger Alarm Output checked, A->1 under that checked (also Trigger Channel, A1 checked).
    - Nothing checked under Normal Linkage.

    Should that do it? Still not working for me.

    So I've also upgraded the Camera to 5.4.5 as per @VorlonFrog post above, but I still cannot get my HIK NVR to save any Smart events to the device.. Not the end of the world, but if I was to use one in the Garage, then I'd like a notification if anything happens.

    I seem to recall reading here somewhere that if "Smart Codec" or "third video stream" are enabled, certain features become unavailable?

    There is a separate alarm output tab that needs to be enabled on the camera..its not intuitive...its new in more recent camera firmware, it was not like that two years ago..

    It's available in the GUI of the camera, but that then doesn't link it with the NVR. In the NVR the page is there, it just says 'Invalid Operation' when I try to save anything on that page.

    I have this setup with Tinycam Monitor Pro as an ONVIF camera. Is there a way to get two-way audio with Tinycam?

    I have this camera setup indoors and have used a Smartplug to turn it off and on automatically when I leave the house.

    However today when I tried that it woould not log in and had reset so I had to enter an new username and password ?

    Does turning power on and off reset the camera back to factory settings ?

    Its been fine up today when it seemed to have reset back to factory settings.

    Hi, it most certainly not do a factory reset on the camera. How have you got the camera hooked up to your home network and how are you remotely accessing the camera.
    There is a small chance that you've been a victim of the HIK Backdoor and someone has reset it for you.

    Hooked up to my LAN with a fixed IP number. I use SecuirtySpy (MAC) which has an option to use a remote view option via an APP.

    If it had been hacked I am also running two other Hikvision cameras with vulnerable firmware so they would likely be hacked as well.

    I will see if it happens again.

    Did you try?

    Settings --> audio settings --> push to talk

    Should probably work.

    tinyCam Monitor PRO does not support talking for ONVIF profile.
    However the app does support talking for Hikvision cameras. Just select vendor Hikvision.

    Ok I picked one of these up to play with and I tried to update after downloading the files linked above. Problem is when I try there is nothing in that directory where I saved and extracted them.
    The only folder that shows up is actually from another hik cam that I have since I recently upgraded it.
    That folder is named DS-2xx2_5.4.5_170123. This folder does not contain files downloaded above.
    Have tried firefox...won't show anything other than the menu structure. Chrome...nothing happens when I hit the browse for upgrade file/directory, Edge browser...same as Chrome and Internet explorer...shows the above directory only which doesn't have the firmware in it.

    What am I missing here?

    If the file is zipped,you will need to unzip to your desktop look for a file named davinci
    Then go to the camera web GUI
    Under maintenance tick upgrade firmware
    Then browse to to file on the desk top and it will start the upgrade process
    This is hikvisions way reading this thread I’m assuming the annke works the same way?

    It's likely that you've picked a folder that IE11 doesn't have permission to save files in to.
    They may be downloaded into the temporary, hidden 'Virtualised folder' that Windows uses in those circumstances.
    Try as an experiment running IE11 'As Administrator'.

    Well I ended up using ivms-4200 and was able to successfully upgrade.
    After all three upgrades were done I rechecked the web ui and could only see the same folder. Very strange. Not sure if my PC or cameras fault, but either way I got it upgraded!
    Thanks for the help.

    @alastairstevenson is correct. Windows 10 and Internet Exploder virtualize a directory in order to sandbox/protect you from the Hikvision ActiveX object in the browser. It can be a royal PITA if you don't know what it's actually doing behind the scenes.

    VorlornFrog,

    can you tell me how you updated the firmware? i downloaded the files and unzipped it. When i log into the camera, the browse button is greyed out. I installed the webcomponent executable and reopened a new browser window. but nada. I copied the files onto a microsd card and tried updating that way but it doesnt seem to work either. What am I missing? used ie 11 and chrome to test. Thanks for the guidance.

    Mine wasn't greyed out it just wasn't functional, but there are two suggestions in the last three posts before yours.
    Try running as admin or try ivms4200 to upgrade.

    I'd highly recommend upgrading. The original Annke firmware has the Hikvision backdoor in it. Annke hasn't offered upgraded firmware without the vulnerability yet.

    Is that camera better than the IP Cams I bought for inside? I originally bought one as a baby monitor about 2 months ago.

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B073...1508712204&sr=1&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65

    Here's a couple of videos I exported.



    This was before I tweaked the sensitivity on the IR.



    Besides lack of PoE any reason I should switch? I kind of want to buy one to play with but then again I'm thinking of getting a starlight for indoors also.

    I have no experience with the one you linked but the Hikvision cube cameras are actual real security cameras. Not bottom level junk from China. Mid-level stuff from China.
