HikCentral FAQ
1
Chapter 1 Installation
1.1 What is Streaming Service?
Question
What is the function of Streaming Service? Do I have to install it?
Answer
Streaming Service provides centralized forwarding of video and audio stream from device to
clients.
When there are more than 200 cameras to be forwarded, you need to install the Streaming
Service because the Streaming Gateway can serve for 200 cameras at maximum.
1.2 Why can’t I install Streaming Service with VSM on the
same PC?
Question
Why can’t I install the Streaming Service together with the VSM service on the same PC or
server?
Answer
VSM and Streaming Service can’t be installed on the same PC or server because VSM includes
the Streaming Gateway which serves the same function as Streaming Service.
1.3 Why can’t I run the system after I reinstalled it?
Question
I cannot run the system after I reinstalled it. Why?
Answer
You should reboot your PC or server if the installation wizard prompts you to do so after
installing, uninstalling, or repairing the system. The system may not be able to run after you
reinstall it again due to missing files.
1.4 Can I run the Control Client on a virtual machine?
Question
Can I run the Control Client on a virtual machine?
Answer
No. The Control Client doesn’t support running on virtual machine.

list:
1. Open Internet Explorer‘s Internet Options and enter the Security tab.

3. Add the address to the Trusted sites list.
2.2 Can I log into HikCentral with an IP address if it is
configured with a domain name?

Chapter 3 Activation and Deactivation
3.1 Failed to activate the system in offline mode with prompt
“Operation timeout”
Question
I tried to activate the system in offline mode, but failed and received the message “Operation
timeout”. Why?
Answer
The activation in offline mode will fail if the time offset between the VSM server’s time and the
standard time is more than 24 hours.
You should change the VSM server’s time to the standard time.
HikCentral FAQ

Chapter 4 Device Management
4.1 How many encoding devices and cameras can be added
to HikCentral?
Question
How many encoding devices and cameras can I add to HikCentral?
Answer
 For one site, up to 1,024 encoding devices and 3,000 cameras can be added.
 For sites with an RSM module, up to 1,024 Remote Sites and encoding devices can be
added. Up to 3,000 cameras can be added to the current site and up to 100,000 cameras
can be imported from Remote Sites.
4.2 Failed to configure device remotely via the Web Client
Question
Why can’t I configure the device remotely via the Web Client after adding a third-party
encoding device to HikCentral?
Answer
 Check whether the device and the system are in the same domain. The device and system
should be in the same domain.
 Check whether the device supports web configuration. Remote configuration is only
supported by devices which supports web configuration.
 Check the web browser type and version. We recommend using IE10 or IE11 to log in to
the Web Client.
4.3 Which user name should I use when adding a CVR?
Question
Which user name and password should I use when I add a CVR to HikCentral?
Answer
Add CVRs to HikCentral via the admin account. When the password of nvr_admin user is
manually changed, the password of admin user will also be changed to the same one.
4.4 Is the device’s user name and password required when
remote configuration?
Question
HikCentral FAQ

Question
What is Remote Site Management (RSM)?
Answer
You can add other HikCentral System without an RSM module to a HikCentral system with an
RSM module (Central System) as Remote Site for central management.
After adding a Remote Site to the Central System, you can manage the Remote Site’s cameras
(such as live view and playback) and add the Remote Site’s configured alarms so that you can
manage the alarms via the Central System. You can also set the recording schedule for the
Remote Sites’ cameras and store the recorded video files in the Central System’s Recording
Server.
5.2 Can I add a HikCentral (with RSM) to another
HikCentral as a Remote Site?
Question
Can I add a HikCentral (with RSM) to another HikCentral (with RSM) as a Remote Site?
Answer
No. You can only add HikCentral (without RSM) to the HikCentral (with RSM) as a Remote Site.
5.3 Can I add one HikCentral to another one if I have added
it to one Central System?
Question
If I have already added one HikCentral (without RSM) to the HikCentral (with RSM) as a Remote
Site, can I add it to other HikCentral (with RSM)?
Answer
No. One HikCentral (without RSM) can only be added to one HikCentral (with RSM) for central
management.
5.4 Can I manage a Remote Site’s cameras the same as the
current site’s cameras?
Question
HikCentral FAQ

After importing the Remote Sites’ cameras to areas in Central System (HikCentral with RSM),
can I manage these cameras just the same as the current site’s cameras?
Answer
No. For the cameras imported from Remote Sites, the following functions are NOT supported in
a Central System:
Configuration:
 Storing recorded video file in encoding device locally when configuring recording. You can
only store the video files in a CVR or a Cloud Storage Server.
 Setting Remote Sites’ cameras as related cameras when configuring alarms.
 Adding Remote Sites’ cameras as hot spots on maps.
Operation:
 Two-way audio during live view.
 Adding tags to the video, locking video, and red triangle-mark on calendar during
playback.
 Searching transaction events, ATM events by inputting card numbers, and VCA playback in
Video Search module.
 ANPR.
 People counting.
 Heat map.
 Displaying signal status in Health Monitoring module.
5.5 Can I store video files of Remote Site’s camera in the
Central System?
Question
Why can’t I configure to store video files of a Remote Site’s camera in the Central System’s CVR
or Cloud Storage Server?
Answer
For the Remote Sites added to the Central System by domain name or Remote Sites registered
to the Central System, HikCentral cannot store their cameras’ video files in the Central System’s
CVR or Cloud Storage Server.
5.6 Why do my added Remote Sites turn to offline after
switching transfer protocol?
Question
Why do my added Remote Sites turn to offline after I switch the transfer protocol of the system
(with RSM) to HTTPS?
Answer
If you switch the transfer protocol to HTTPS for any sites (Remote Sites or site with RSM) in the
Central System, you should enable other sites’ transfer protocols to HTTPS as well.
