Hikvision Will Be Locked After 6 Failed Login Attempts

It seems that after all the news about HIKVISION hacks and botnet attacks, said company has strengthened it's security measures on the standalone DVR level at least. It is using connection screens to remind the user of always using STRONG PASSWORDS.

But I don't get what does it's new "will be LOCKED after 6 failed login attempts" warning message really means.

- Is it "Lock the IP address out" ? (the IP from which the user is remotely connecting from at that moment)

- Or "Lock the DVR itself" ? (so that neither the owner of said DVR can login even with his own correct password, and therefore requiring sending an e-mail and reset using a date specific password)

- Or "Lock temporarily the DVR until X amount of time" ? (and then later, anyone with the correct password can login again). And X amount of time being ??
