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. [/FP] 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.

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.
