Please be aware that Hikvision products are region-specific and regionally supported. If you have purchased your Hikvision products from an online source or unauthorized distributor, they may not be compatible with the UK region’s firmware and are considered to be “gray market” product. If your camera has “CH” in the serial number, you are most likely using a “gray market” product. Updating the firmware from this site can lead to several complications in those cameras, up to and including camera failure. Restoring a “gray market” product to its original condition is a factory process and will result in a Chinese interface. As Hikvision warranty is void in this case, you must rely on the dealer for any service, support, and warranty of the “gray market” product. If you have any questions or concerns about the official status of your Hikvision distributor, please contact Hikvision UK Customer Service at support.uk@hikvision.com.

      The SDK includes two modes: pull mode and push mode: 

      The pull mode 

      The SDK is used as client. The client connects to the device actively, and then does operation about the device, live view, remote playback and download, PTZ control, voice talk and so on. It applies to, but are not limited to the following product model:

      The push mode 

      The SDK is used as register server (CMS) and client (CU). The CMS parameter (IP address and port of register server) of the device should be set firstly, and then the device will register to the CMS actively. It applies to, but are not limited to the following product model: 

      ·DVR:DS-7216HV-ST/GE, DS-7216HV-ST/GE, DS-7216HV-ST/GW, DS-7216HV-ST/GW, DS-7216HV-ST/GS, DS-7216HV-ST/GS

      Because some function of SDK has been extended, and firmware of device is also updated. To be convenient for explanation, we classify device into two classes: the devices such as DS-7116, DS-81xx, DS-90xx, DS-91xx, DS-95xx, DS-96xx are called device supports V3.0 above, the devices such as DS-80xx, IPC are called devices supports V3.0 below.
