Remember to update the firmware as per VorlonFrog's notes

The firmware updates in VorlonFrog's notes will patch a security hole in the Hikvision camera.

Q: from casino52 View Post :
Any guides or tips on how to setup the VPN so I can view this camera remotely? Thanx

A:HI Casino52,

This should help get you started

From:
https://slickdeals.net/f/10409612-lorex-dahua-oem-6x-4k-8mp-security-camera-system-w-8-port-poe-ip-nvr-2tb-hdd-kit-at-costco-b-m-ymmv-for-799-99

Security and Privacy related:
Q: What about security and privacy of this camera?
A: Remember it's not just your video feed which is potentially compromised, but your cameras, NVR, PCs, and everything else connecting to your LAN / router. Hijackers and their virii / malware are constantly searching for systems to hijack and use for illegal activities.
Thus to reduce the threat remember to change the default passwords on the cameras and NVR. All security cameras, security camera systems, as well as IoT systems have significant security issues. The best way to keep it secure is to have it on an isolated network. If you do need to see the videos remotely then please setup a VPN instead of using port forwarding. A managed switch can be useful, as well as a firewall like pfsense or the firewall which came with your router can be used to further protect your network by isolating components.
Please see the following for VPN information

John Ricco provides excellent advice, thanks John:

Remember to never open ports on your router.
Reason: I had ports open to view an IP cam (hikvision) remotely---Someone hacked in and changed the cameras name to HACKED

If you want to view this remotely, setup a vpn server using openVPN

On an asus router, it takes five minutes. On other routers, you better know what you're doing. I tried it on a router running tomato and it was tough.
Also remember to: "Make sure you disable uPnP in the router,"

Tinycam 2 way Audio support of this camera:
"I have this setup with Tinycam Monitor Pro as an ONVIF camera. Is there a way to get two-way audio with Tinycam?"
tinyCam Monitor PRO does not support talking for ONVIF profile.
However the app does support talking for Hikvision cameras. Just select vendor Hikvision.

Ok guys, I bought one of these and started tinkering with it tonight. I have a couple of newbie tips based upon my experience.

1. Doesn't seem possible to upgrade firmware via the device os accessed via browser. For me, the browse to button and box to type a path for firmware were both locked out. I had to use the hikvision ivms4200 software to upgrade.

2. The credentials are confusing. You need to connect to the device with user admin and the password you create.

3. For me, each time I upgraded the firmware, it would throw an error half way through. I came to realize after fiddling with it that if I rebooted the device via the hikvision software that the upgrade actually worked.

4. The software and the camera are slow. Be patient. It will throw confusing errors from the client UI if you dont give the camera enough time to fully start up. Hard to explain but i am kinda getting more of a feel for it.

Now I have a question. I did all this config with it wired to my router. Whats the right way to configure wireless? In the wifi menu on the hikvision client there isn't an obvious place to set the wifi password.

Finally, I wanted to point out 2 things. First, image quality seems to be very good, even in the dark, with video settings dialed up. Second, try to be patient. The whole thing seems janky and frustrating at first. Hopefully the above helps a tad.
Note: up can change out the lens on this camera

There are some people who install these outdoors, under cover/protection of porches or soffits. It is NOT meant for outdoor use, exposed to rain, as it has no waterproofing whatsoever. It IS meant for use as an indoor security camera, and it has EXCELLENT picture quality.

Most of the Annke branded cameras and kits I do not recommend, this one however is worth it.

If you update the firmware you have a nice quality camera which for $50 beats many other products you see being sold during the black friday season.

WiFi OR ethernet cable for data.

I use IP Cam Viewer Pro [apple.com] on my iPhone. They also have an Android version of the app [google.com] and a "light" version with advertisements [google.com] so you can try before you buy.

I have this camera but it's branded lts. Made by hikvision. If you used these or any IP cameras and want to access them when away from home, setup a vpn on your network. It's the most secure option. I had this exact camera hacked three weeks ago. (Before I setup vpn). The hackers got into it from open ports. I found out because the name of the camera was changed to hacked.
It's not just these cameras. Ip cams aren't the most secure devices

This camera is great. Plop an SD card in and record away and view remotely. You can setup so the cam notififies you if it senses motion.
