The Evolution of Vehicle Lighting and Safety Systems

In today’s technologically-driven world, the safety and functionality of vehicles have been revolutionized with advanced lighting and camera systems. From construction sites to highways, ensuring optimal visibility and caution is paramount. Let’s delve into some innovative solutions that pave the way for a safer and more efficient future on the roads and beyond.

1. Work Lights

Work lights have transformed the way we operate in low-light conditions. These lights are designed to offer a broader and brighter illumination, making it easier for workers to carry out their tasks efficiently, especially during nighttime or in dim environments.

2. Beacons for All Types of Vehicles

Beacons have become indispensable for various vehicles, from emergency responders to construction vehicles. They act as a warning system, signaling other road users of potential hazards or the need to give way.

3. Mini Light Bars

Mini light bars are compact yet powerful lighting solutions. They’re perfect for vehicles that require intense illumination without the bulk of traditional light bars.

4. Interior Lighting for Vehicles:

Interior lighting goes beyond aesthetics. It plays a pivotal role in ensuring the driver’s comfort, visibility of controls, and overall safety inside the vehicle, especially during nighttime drives.

5. Camera Systems for Vehicles:

With the advent of camera systems, drivers can now have a 360-degree view around their vehicles. These systems are crucial in preventing collisions, assisting in parking, and ensuring the safety of pedestrians and other road users.

6. Backup Alarms:

Backup alarms are a simple yet effective safety measure. They alert pedestrians and other vehicles when a vehicle is reversing, reducing the risk of accidents.

7. Lights for Forklifts / Warehousing applications:

Forklifts operate in tight spaces and often in areas with limited visibility. Specialized lighting for forklifts ensures that operators can see and be seen, ensuring the safety of both the operators and the goods they handle.

8. Directional Lights:

Directional lights guide the way. Whether it’s for turning, merging, or emergency situations, these lights ensure that other road users are aware of a vehicle’s intended movement.


The future of vehicular safety is bright, thanks to these innovative lighting and camera solutions. As technology continues to advance, we can anticipate even more enhanced systems that will further ensure our safety on the roads and at work. Whether you’re a fleet manager, a car enthusiast, or someone concerned about road safety, these advancements are ushering in a new era of vehicular safety and efficiency.

Adding GDS3710 Door Phone to Epcom NVR

Step 1: Prepare the GDS3710 for Connection

  1. Connect to the GDS3710 through a web browser using the default IP address, 192.168.1.168.
  2. Log in with the following credentials:
    • Username: admin
    • Password: The password should be printed on the device.
  3. Once inside the GDS3710’s graphical interface, navigate to the “System Settings” menu and select “Network Settings.”
  4. Assign a static IP address to the GDS3710 within the network segment provided by the NVR. This ensures that the camera and the NVR are on the same network. Save the configuration.

Step 2: Configure the NVR

  1. Access the NVR’s graphical interface. You can do this through the NVR’s IP address or by connecting a monitor to the NVR via the HDMI port.
  2. Navigate to the NVR’s settings menu, typically represented by a gear icon.
  3. Then, select “Camera IP” or a similar option in the NVR’s menu.
  4. Click the “Edit” button (usually resembling a pencil) on one of the available channels where you want to add the GDS3710 camera.
  5. Select the addition method as “Manual.”
  6. Enter the IP address you configured on the GDS3710 in the corresponding field.
  7. Choose the “ONVIF” protocol (ensure that the GDS3710 camera is ONVIF-compatible) and provide the password you set on the GDS3710.
  8. Save the configuration.

Step 3: Review the Result

Once you have completed these steps, the GDS3710 should be registered on the NVR as an additional camera. You can verify this by accessing the live view on the NVR and selecting the channel where you added the GDS3710 camera. You should be able to view the camera’s video feed on the NVR.
Ensure that the IP address and password are correct, and both devices are on the same network for the configuration to work correctly.

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).

SETTINGS ON THE SECONDARY DOOR STATION

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.

SETTINGS ON THE MAIN 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.
