Today we’re going to launch and configure the access control functionality, password and a Mifare card authentication ways on the Hikvision 2nd Geneneration IP Modular Intercom System, that you can within all modules on the Pipl Systems Store 🙂
Although the entire system can be launched, activated and be work-ready with no even PC software like IVMS-4200 or Batch – I mean it’s possible to set up everything right here on the monitor in literally 4 touches. But if we talk about a more interesting and complex functionality, like a certain kind of access control system, user cards enrolling and so on – we can’t do the whole thing without an IVMS-4200, although, we can set an entry password straight on the monitor itself. Anyways – we will overview all the available options we have, and here you can read material that is featuring activation and initial setup of a Hikvision 2nd Gen intercom system available here in case you’ve missed it. Our today goal is to add a card reader and a keypad modules to our Hikvision intercom system, and accordingly – due to these modules we will create an access control rules for users so that they can authenticate and enter a premise using an individual card and a personal password.
What do we need? One of the last series monitors, we’re using DS-KH8350 with no wi-fi. Next, we need a main module – the door phone itself, because that is the system basement, to which all the additional modules are connected. And regarding the modules – here we have a very classic 1-0 keypad with an asterisk and a number sign, the 2nd is a Mifare-type cards reader. And by the way, along with an outdoor station Hikvision put such Mifare card for in box testing – everything is thought out. The final item on our set is a triple bracket as a perfect fit for all 3 modules we have. And what’s good – the bracket box includes all the required wires and parts for all 3 modules. Well, except a PoE-switch or power supply, you always got to get it separately.
The Interfaces / Connection
We have already disclosed the topic of a set up and a devices quick start, here’s a link to that article, but now I will briefly summarize. The power and network are supplied via the LAN-cable from the PoE-switch separately to both intercom and the door phone. The main module and 2 additional modules: a keypad and a card reader, that are already fixed in the bracket, are active and are connected to each other. On a back – the LAN with power and network goes to the main module. And then this main module kind of distributes this power and connects with the other modules via interface from top to bottom. As you can see, the “Out” goes to the “In” of the 1st module, and from there it goes to module 2 the same way. And also we have displayed this scheme on a DIP switches on devices’ back, so that we assigned the unique addresses to every device in the circuit. And about a software part – we actually do nothing, the modules are already online, connected, and nothing else is needed from the moment of plug in. And let’s imagine our system is already connected to the lock in the door.
Enrolling Card and Password Via IVMS-4200
Since everything is connected, we move on to the configuration part in frames of the option #1 – the PC software. All devices are activated and added to the IVMS-4200. We’ll start by enrolling a card – we go to the “Person” tab in IVMS and create an organization, Pipl. Now we add the employee, Daniel. Random birth date, random employee ID. Now we need and read the card and assign it to that user. Credential tab, card and click on the “+”, settings, selecting our reader – the KD8003 panel itself, clicking Remote reading and selecting our panel in the list. Now press read, press the card to the reader itself, and after you hear a signal from reader – you are ready to go further.
Assign a card number and click “Add”. Now below – open the Resident Information and in the Bind tab – attach your door phone, add the number of the building and a room below. Now we need to upload this information into the panel. Open the Access Control tab, select Access Group – click “Add”. Enter a number, select the company and the person in it. Below, select the panel as the access point, then save and close. Now the rule appeared and we upload it into the device. Clicking “Apply to all devices”, and when a pop-up with progress bar will display 100% – you’re done. About the user password – it’s even simpler. Go to devices, go to intercom settings, the Intercom tab, and the Permission Password item. Choose “unlocking password” and set it. I’ve made it “123456”, entered it 2 times and saved.
The monitor, door phone and 2 modules. And here is my Mifare card. Pressing it – and we hear the notification that the door is open. And now the password is as simple too. Number sign, one to six, number sign – and you hear – got it open too.

We like the system for that how simple and intuitive everything is made in it. You don’t have to be an experienced installer or a technical engineer to understand the thing because everything is very simple – from connection to configuration, which is a way easier in compare to many other manufacturers. Plus, on top of that there’s a flexibility of the system with a wide modules selection for a variety of tasks to fit perfectly into your idea and your vision of the project. In the Pipl Systems Store we have a wide selection of these modules for you 🙂
