The Protege GX and Hikvision integration enables you to control cameras and view live and historical video footage from a single, easy-to use interface.
Cameras can be linked to doors, inputs, outputs and areas, allowing you to easily retrieve footage based on any change of status, such as when a PIR is triggered or a door is opened. An automatic popup can display a live video stream on any door event, allowing you to see when someone is at the door or when a door has been forced open.
The high level interface (HLI) enables the communication of PTZ triggers and alarm interfaces back to the VMS, providing bi-directional exchange of information, while VMS events such as Motion Detected can be monitored directly in Protege GX.
How it works
Protege GX communicates with the VMS server via a video service. This service monitors the two systems and sends camera commands from Protege GX to the VMS server, and continuously transfers any events triggered in the VMS system to Protege GX.
This integration has been tested with Hikvision SDK versions 184.108.40.206 (x64) and 220.127.116.11 (x86). Integration with systems operating different SDK versions may require additional testing.
Note: The Protege GX integration communicates with the Hikvision DVR via the Hikvision SDK. Therefore, this integration is compatible with any Hikvision system that is supported by the connected DVR(s). For a list of compatible devices visit the Hikvision website.
