Hikvision Deletes Genetec Support

By: John Honovich, Published on Feb 20, 2018

There will be no peace between Hikvision and Genetec.

A year after Genetec expelled Hikvision (and Huawei, citing Chinese government control concerns), relegating them to a restricted category, requiring a liability waiver and a special license fee, Hikvision has responded by deleting Genetec's protocol support. This was in line with Hikvision's attacks on Genetec as 'dirty' and 'running fast in the wrong direction.'

An immediate consequence is that Genetec users with Hikvision cameras now need to choose between (1) upgrading and losing integration with Genetec (since the upgrade deletes the protocol) or (2) not upgrading anymore and risk Hikvision vulnerabilities.

More broadly, this shows Hikvision is looking to put pressure on Genetec.

Inside this note, we examine the move, its potential impact, and options for users of these products.
