I have a Hikvision DS-9632NI-I8 NVR and 8 Hikvision cameras at my residence.
I'm very interested in the USA newly released Hikvision video door station equipment as shown on the Hikvision USA website (left side of page "Video Intercom):
I understand IPVM will be testing a Hikvisions' IP video door station per a post on another thread but I've started this thread to obtain more information for my own "potential" purchase.
For my application I would purchase these 4 items (creating a single station with dedicated indoor station) when they become available in the US:
1. DS-KV8102-IM IP Video Door Station
2. DS-KH8301-WT Video Intercom Indoor Station with 7-inch Touch Screen
3. DS-KAD606-P IP Video Intercom Power/Data Distributor
4. DS-KAB02 Door Station Wall Mount Bracket
Looking at just the DS-KV8102-IM: http://www.hikvision.com/us/Products_1_700_i40922.html
and clicking the download tab, I am seeing that Hikvision is providing useful software/firmware updates to actually use the IP Video Door Station with the I series NVR and with iVMS-4200.
- I-Series NVR Integration Firmware V3.4.92A_170629
- iVMS-4200 v126.96.36.199
Since my NVR is a DS-9632NI-I8 it looks like I could apply the new Firmware to make the Video Door Station available for NVR recording. I currently am running FW V3.4.92 build 170518 which I upgraded to 9 months ago (with no problems-I was happy the upgrade went well).
I have iVMS-4200 on my windows desktop so I will probably upgrade but I find it easier to just switch my display to a 2nd input, which is a HDMI feed from the DS-9632NI-I8,and use the native software on the DS-9632NI-I8. Switching is quick and I have a separate wireless Logitech mouse which negotiates the NVR well.
Overall I'm impressed that the Hikvision Video Intercom documentation, FW updates, and software updates are in place and ready to use when the hardware is available.
I will be very interested in John's testing of the Hikvision video intercom and ask if anyone else has any experience with the USA version (someone who got it early) to please add to this post.
