Lost Axis And Hikvision Camera Passwords

We took over a property that had existing cameras through Hikvision and Axis however the old integrator did not document the passwords to the cameras.

We are unsure of how to get the camera passwords without having to order a lift and try and press the reset buttons.

Any suggestions on how to retrieve the passwords or an easier way to retrieve? I know on some of the Hikvision we can email support and they should be able to send a reset file. Not sure about Axis though.
