Hikvision Australia’s website has firmware updates for available IP cameras.
NOTE this is only for IPC.
You will need to contact us if you can’t find your camera listed or if you require firmware for your NVR / DVR.
You will need to also provide the full serial number of the device as well as your current firmware.
This is to ensure upgrades are done properly. In some instances middlle firmware is required before upgrading to the latest version.
We do not recommend doing intercom firmware upgrades. Please check with us if there is any doubt.

Please refer to page 8 of the user manual.
Most residential customers would use the Green and Blue cable
The Power would depend on the electric strike (to be powered separately). Further, the strike also has NO and NC setting. So, the strike has to also be on NO setting
For commerical sites, some of them may use NC, so in that case, we still use electric strike but use the pink, NC cable to connect to it
