What if my app says offline?
(note that as long as the NVR has power all the recorded data will still be available when the app comes back online)
First try closing and reopening the app. Sometimes it can get confused after moving from wifi to mobile data
Reboot the modem
Reboot the NVR
Reboot the white box with blue lights (if you have one)
Wait 10 minutes for it all to boot up again and then refresh the app by dragging down on the main screen and you will see it say release to update. (You could even give your phone a restart just to make sure its not an issue with your phone)
If the app continues to be offline then you may have to get in touch with us for further assistance.
What if my NVR is beeping?
You NVR will beep if you hard drive is dead.
Give everything a restart and if the beeping persist please get in touch with us to replace the hdd.
I have a new modem and now my app says offline?
If the system is hardwired make sure the NVR is plugged into a LAN port on your modem. (Not a WAN port)
Give everything a reboot if its still not online.
If the system is connected to the modem using wifi you will need to pair the white box with blue lights back up to the modem.
(You cannot update these details using the Hik_connect app, the NVR is not aware of wifi)
This can be done by pushing the button on the white box with blue lights then going to your modem and pushing the WPS or PAIR button until it shows some indication its trying to sync usually a flashing light.
Once its reconnected you will see more light lit up around the white box with blue lights.
You may need to reboot the NVR if the app doesn’t come back online. You will need to wait 5-10 minutes for the NVR to boot back up. Then refresh the app as above.
This can be tricky so please get in touch if you can’t get it to work.
Some tutorial videos available on our YouTube Channel
More support can be found on the manufacturers page.
What is the username and password for the NVR?
By default we configure the NVR with the following details.
All case sensistive
One of my cameras is offline?
Reboot the NVR (this will take 5-10 minutes to boot back up) and refresh the app. (as above)
If the camera remains offline please get in touch.
