Has Anybody Used Hikvision Cameras With Avigilon VMS?

I noticed on Hikvisions website that Avigilon is listed as a technology partner. However they are not listed on Avigilons website as a compatible device.

Yes they work very well via ONVIF.

Yes, I have used them and depending on the Hikvision model, they are fully compatible with motion sensing, but not all.

Need to use correct firmware.

I uses 2032,2632 and 2332. They work well. There is a specific firmware for the motion to work.

You do need to setup motion in the camera,not ACC.

Does audio work and well synchronized to video?

I have tested Hikvision DS-2DE5184-A (2MP speed dome) with Avigilon a couple of day ago. Avigilon ACC detect the camera as ONVIF device. The PTZ presets can be set in ACC and/or the camera, however the motion detection needs to be set in the camera. So it works...I did not try audio.
