Hikvision/Video Intercom – Configuring a Door Station for 2nd Generation IP Monitors via IVMS4200

In this technical guide, we will explain the configuration of two monitors and a door station from the new generation of Hikvision video intercom systems.
Before beginning, it’s important to verify and/or perform the following steps:

  1. Ensure all devices, including the computer, are connected to the same network (within the same network segment).
  2. Update both the door station and the monitors to the latest firmware version.
  3. Activate and add the devices to IVMS 4200 version V3.1.1.13 and confirm that they are online.

Note: Updates and software can be downloaded from our portal https://www.epcom.net. Once the devices are updated, it’s necessary to restore them to factory settings to apply the firmware update values.

Step 1: Access Remote Configuration (1) on the door station DSK-D8003-IME1 –> Intercom (2) –> ID Configuration (3). Verify that the parameters are set as follows (4).

Step 2: Access Remote Configuration (1) on the monitor DSKH-6320-WTE1 –> Intercom (2) –> ID Configuration (3). Under Device Type, select “Indoor Station.” Assign the room and floor numbers; for example, set both as 1 (4).

Step 3: Next, in the Network tab (1), select Linked Network Configuration (2). In the (Main) Door Station IP Address (3) field, enter the IP address of the door station. Save the changes (4).

Step 4: Access Remote Configuration (1) of the second monitor DSKH-6320-WTE1 –> Intercom (2) –> ID Configuration (3) –> Device No. Configuration. Select the Station Extension tab and assign the extension number (4). Click Save.

Step 5: In the Network tab (1), choose Linked Network Configuration (2). In the Main Door Station IP Address field, assign the IP address of the main monitor (3). Save the changes (4).

With these simple steps, the video intercom system can make calls to both monitors.

Video Door Entry Systems – Linking 2 or More IP Door Stations

We will outline the basic setup for adding a second (or more) door station to an existing IP door entry system.

We assume the initial system configuration has already been completed (a monitor is already set up with the main door station). Now, the next step is to link the additional missing door stations.

To begin, it’s important to identify our devices, as shown in our IVMS4200 program.

In this example, we already have an additional monitor, which does not affect our configuration.

The key concept to understand for performing this setup is as follows:

  • There are 2 passwords:
    1. Password: The activation password for the devices (the usual one)
    2. Registration Password: The key that allows the secondary door station to register with the main door station (i.e., to link them).


To begin, access the configuration of the SECONDARY DOOR STATION and set it as a slave (replace the number 0 with the number 1 if it’s the first slave station, number 2 if it’s the second, and so on). Do this in the “Villa Door Station No” parameter within the menu located below:

  • After that, the door station will restart.

Once rebooted, navigate to the “Session Settings” menu and enter the following:

  1. Main Door Station IP: Enter the IP address of the main door station.
  2. Registration Password: Here, you can assign any password you prefer. For our example, we’ll use “12345abc”.

Note: It’s preferable to use the same password as the activation password of the door station.


It’s necessary to access our main door station, select “Device Management,” and add the details of our secondary door station.

*NOTE: If your door station is DSKD8003IME1, then you must use remote configuration through IVMS4200. If your door station is a different model, you can do it through its web interface.

The information you input must be accurate for the secondary door station. Once you’ve entered the details, click “OK” (save). After about 1 minute, your second door station will be successfully added without any issues.

Avoiding Costly Downtime: The Benefits of Investing in High-Quality Fiber Optic Cabling

When the fiber optic cable retracts internally, it loses a significant portion or all of its connection to the last fusion or connectorization point. In the worst case, there may be a complete fracture at any point along the fiber drop.

To explain it more clearly, fiber optic cables and all their components are subject to physical changes due to weather conditions or environmental factors such as humidity, cold, heat, UV rays, etc. The core loses tension on the buffer in the loose tube, which can result in a catastrophic failure that can affect 1 user or thousands of them.

  • Some brands not recognized by international standards and manufactured in India include Cablix, Policab, KEI, etc.

The image below shows the failure, where the core retracts and is not at the level of the connectorization point to make the correct splice and continue with the light beam.

  • The costs of these repairs and fault-finding are very high, as well as the worst experience for users, which can lead to losing customers.

M2M – Reactivating devices from the management platform (REACTIVAM2M)

Steps to add a REACTIVAM2M to an M2M device in the management platform (https://m2mservices.com/Admin)

These steps work for all M2M family devices that require reactivation to add their corresponding annual fee.

If the communicator is already suspended and inactive for longer than its PREPAY END DATE, the platform will display the “ACTIVATE DEVICE” option.

First, we need to search for the communicator, double-click on it, and go to the home page.

To activate it, we need to click on “ACTIVATE DEVICE.”

It will ask us if we want to add a REACTIVAM2M, to which we say yes.

We will then see another option, where we click on “voucher.”

A new window will open where we can enter the REACTIVAM2M voucher code found on the invoice.

In the invoice there will be 15 digits that would be our “Voucher Number” enter those digits

After entering, click save

Verify that the option of (ACTIVATE DEVICE) disappears.

It is important to enter the annual voucher as soon as possible, as the reactivation code only gives you until the end of the current month to enter the annual payment. If the annual payment is not entered, the communicator will be suspended. In this case, another reactivation code must be purchased to reactivate the communicator.
