Setup & Tutorial: Hikvision 2nd Gen Modular IP Video Intercom System

Today we continue to disclose the topic of a Hikvision 2nd Generation Modular IP-intercom System, and specifically this time – the connection, a software configuration and a quick start of the indoor station in combine with outdoor station, main video intercom module, to make it work together. And by the way, all the equipment from this video is available on the Pipl Systems Store 🙂

Set Up Structure

  1. Supplying a power and network via LAN-cable
    to monitor and door phone due to PoE Technology
  2. Activation in the SADP Tool
  3. Setup in IVMS-4200
  4. Test and Demonstration
  5. Device activation in Hik-connect

What we are doing today is we start from supplying a power and the network to the indoor station and video intercom via PoE-switch, or you can use a 12V. power adapter. Next, we go to the SADP Tool software and activating them. After – we continue in the IVMS-4200, where we configure the devices in a specific way to create their relation to each other. Then we test and check whether everything works the way it is supposed to, and in the end, we enroll our devices into the Hik-connect mobile app to access system’ functionality from the phone.

The Wiring


 We do the wires. We carry the wire out from a PoE-switch to the monitor and separately to the video intercom. By the way, they can also be powered via 12 volt power adapter, but we use a PoE-type connection as a basis due to that this way requires a single wire only. Devices start up, the monitor screen lights up, a light-indication appears on the intercom – awesome, let’s move on.

Software Part: Activation

We need SADP Tool and IVMS-4200 from Hikvision (link to the official source). We open the SADP Tool, locating a devices in our network and activating them. You can also do the same in the IVMS-4200, but I’m used with SADP, so that’s the way I pick. The identical steps we take to activate 2nd device. After activation, we need to modify the standard factory devices addresses from the 0 subnet to the our subnet and assign them a unique addresses in our network. So this is what we do – selecting the device in SADP and modifying to what we need. Entering a user data below and saving. Now we repeat the same things for the 2nd device and we’re done!

Device Set Up in IVMS-4200

Heading to the IVMS-4200. Here we add our devices, that is: switching to the device management tab, locating them and adding. We drag it to device field, enter the user data that we have created at the last stage in the SADP Tool, and that’s it. The device status can be verified by seeing the online status. Now the important point – after adding we go to our monitor configuration, and what we need to do – we need to enroll the intercom in the monitor and to, kind of, mark out their relation to each other – what are their roles. We go to the Network tab and select Linked Network Configuration – here we set the IP-address of our panel and SIP server, which essentially just duplicates the IP. Also, we’re able to to initially indicate and configure the interaction between the monitor and the door station on the screen of the monitor itself. To do that, go to the settings on monitor, 2nd tab, and open the advances settings with an admin password, which by default is 888999. Here we select the 3rd tab, which is a device management, and the panel will be located there automatically. So we’re done with the software part, thus we move on to the test and demo.


This is how it looks in the end – an activated monitor, an activated outdoor station, and we have already market their interaction. We call, we see the video from our side, we can talk with the interlocutor and from here we can open the door, when it is connected of course. By the way, from here we can see the scene in a live mode at any time. And here we can bring in our ip-cameras.

Adding System To Mobile Hik-connect / IVMS-4500

Now we’re adding our monitor to the Hik-connect / IVMS-4200 mobile app, available for free on iOS and Android, and obtaining an access to its functionality from the phone. And since the verification codes in a new Hikvision devices are instantly embedded in the device from scratch – it just got much easier. We go to the settings, second tab, the settings for a Hik-connect service. Now just press the “add device” in a Hik-connect on the phone and scan this area.

We see a bunch of positive changes and improvements in regard to a 1st generation and all those pros came together in this modular Hikvision IP intercom system. We have examined its main functionality – that is a monitor for receiving and making calls, video calls, remote door opening, and an external door station DS-KD8003-IME1. And a lot of things is left out of our attention today, but we will definitely continue to overview a wide range of a Hikvision modular ip-intercom system possibilities in an upcoming materials, there’ll be a functionality and, of course, we’ll show you how to connect and configure all the stuff. In the Pipl Systems Store you can get this Hikvision Modular IP Video Intercom System for yourself.
