Step 1

The first process to complete is the port forwarding on the local router at the NVR/DVR side.
•Log into the router and port forward ports 80,8000,554 as standard.
•These can be changed if needed but use the new ports if you decide to change them.
•You can find some router specific help at https://portforward.com/router

Step 2

Once the port forwarding is complete –

•Log into the DVR/NVR web address locally and enable the platform access. You can also set the verification code in this menu ready for later steps.

Step 3

To start, log into an existing HIK-Connect account or register a new account.•Use the link www.hik-connect.comwhere you will be able to follow the process to register an account.
