Hikvision DS-KB6003-WIP Wifi Video Doorbell Review + Hik-connect Setup | It’s still worthy’ in 2019!

Considering an extreme popularity of a Wi-fi Video Doorbells We’ve decided to bring up and review a certain origins of these. It’s about Hikvision DS-KB6003-WIP Wi-fi Video Doorbell and what’s unusual for Hikvision – you cannot connect this Doorbell to an Intercom Monitor, you can’t and you don’t need to activate it in the SADP, IVMS or Batch Software. No, this is a purely consumer-focused appliance with a dedicated consumer mobile app. Now let’s find out how the device of 2017 performs a tasks of 2019. And after that you can go to our Pipl Systems Store and get it officially along with a worldwide delivery and a special offer if you will specify you’re subscribed to us.

The Package / The Looks / The Parts

Here you’ll find a regular pack with details, that includes:

  • User manual
  • Quick start guide
  • Mounting template sticker
  • Power wires
  • Resistor (that I’ve broke today during device start-up, but fortunately we can continue without it)
  • Hexagon Screwdriver
  • Screws & anchors
  • Power connector
  • 4x Front Panels

The device requires us to have in addition a 16-24 AC power supply unit, similar to the one featured in a video, purchased separately. On top of that we are able to change a device exterior by switching a front panels, and I really like these variety of options the manufacturer fitted in the box. 4 different panels, 4 different colors: black, white, metal and dark grey. The exact Wi-fi Video Doorbell device – simple and minimalist as it can be. On top we got a microphone hole, below it we have a 2 megapixel 1080p main camera module, edged by the infrared sensor.

Some regulatory information along with the QR-code needed for device activation on a back. On bottom there’s a call button with a back-light behind it. The right side has a micro-SD slot that supports a 128 gigabytes maximum, and the left side has a mini-usb port behind the cover, and a reset button next to it. The bottom side has a loudspeaker on it and a hole to fix here a front panel with a screw. A rear panel has only a power element on it, consisting of a two screws to which we plug a power wires, that we put into a power supply or a mechanical chime if you got one.

The Characteristics / Video Quality

Now what I want to tell regarding a device. Firstly, I want to show you a video quality shot on this 2 megapixel 1080p cam:


And what I would would say from my perspective – quite regular, but not bad. I mean, Ring Doorbells mostly feature a 1080p if we’re comparing. And as a device has an infrared sensor built-in, we’re able to trigger a recording to start by detecting a motion in sight of this lens, which is a 180 degrees view angle, and this is like a true half. Though, the distance parameter of the infrared sensor makes up a 5 meters only, you probably won’t need more as this device is supposed to be used closely. Taking into account this is a 2017 consumer gadget, the video compression here is implemented by a bit old H.264 codec, though, among a new Hikvision devices there’s an H.265 all over them. And yet, a lot of manufacturers keep a 264 in their devices even in 2019.

Regarding the rest, due to a built-in microphone and a speaker we’re able to both hear and speak to our visitors via the Doorbell. The microSD we can input in here can be 128 gigabytes maximum. And if we combine this capacity with a recording triggered by a motion that can take from 2 to 10 s. length, this 128 storage will hold out for a long time. And also the device is protected against a dust and moisture due to the IP54 protection rate, but very low.

  • Wi-fi Video Doorbell
  • 180° FOV
  • 2mp. 1080p Camera
  • H.264 Support
  • Built-in Loudspeaker
  • Built-in Microphone
  • MicroSD up to 128G
  • Built-in Infrared Sensor
  • IP-54 Protection Rate
  • Easy Activation

Connection & Testing


You know, these days it’s rather who you believe the most, as a device’s specs are so similar in different manufacturer’s appliances. Yeah, the Amazon’s Ring and Google Nest are world-famous american consumer brands, but if go deeper, we’ll find there a Hikvision, sometimes consumer, but mostly a mid and high-professional equipment segment.

Although here, with the Hikvision DS-KB6003-WIP Video Doorbell, they’ve managed to do a simply to use, simply to install, long-lasting and durable device that I’m definitely recommending to everyone. You can get it officially on the Pipl Systems Store Website along with a worldwide delivery for you, and specify you are subscribed to get a special offer.
