This guide can only be guaranteed to work for Wi-Fi bird box cameras that have been purchased from us after April 2020. If your Wi-Fi bird box camera has a maximum resolution of 3MP then it will definitely work. Follow this guide to check the maximum resolution of your camera.
Adding the camera to your recorder
In this guide we are using the program Internet Explorer to access the recorder, but you can also do this using the program iVMS4500 or just via a TV directly connected to the recorder itself. The menus will look slightly different but the same options will be there.
Log into your recorder, and click on Configuration > System > Camera Management > IP Camera:
Now click on an unused channel, and select 'Modify' at the top. Type in the IP address you noted down previously. Set the port to 8899, the protocol to Onvif, and the username to 'admin'. If you have set a password on the camera, enter it as well.
Refresh the page after a minute or so, and it should say 'Online' under the Status column. You can now live view your bird box camera through a Hikvision NVR.
