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.

The Dangers of Lock Picking

The Youtuber LockPickingLawyer, with more than 50 Million monthly views, has become a sensation with short tutorials where he explains how to open practically any lock.

He has videos that show examples such as high-security locks, vehicle locks, and even professional locks like Mul-T-Lock.

His videos show us how vulnerable any mechanical system is and how easy it is to get tools to abuse any mechanism.

But that’s not all, it also demonstrates basic vulnerabilities in electronic access control systems where there is no controller present or it is a low-level terminal:

He is very good at explaining, and one can spend several hours watching videos without stopping.

All the videos follow the same format: Talk about the lock model or manufacturer, “Picking,” and then disassemble the equipment to understand how it is inside.

In the end, we conclude:

  • If access to an area depends on a mechanical lock, however secure it may be, it is possible to violate it by following a video on Youtube.
  • Our Access Leader always mentions: “What is exposed will always be vulnerable.”

How to avoid lockpicking? How does a Professional Access Control System Works?

Professional access control uses an access controller to activate/deactivate the lock; the reader/biometric is not directly connected to the lock.

In this example, a card reader sends the information to a controller and opens the door:

A controller or group of controllers can manage several doors in different locations or cities.

Hikvision/ video intercom – Configure 2 or more video intercoms DSKV8X13WME1 series to a monitor through web interface.

Web configuration to call 2 or more video intercoms DSKV8X13WME1 series to a monitor.

Follow the steps in this procedure to configure 2 or more video intercoms to call a monitor, the models with web interface are DS-KV8113-WME1, DS-KV8213-WME1, and DS-KV8413-WME1.

All the devices must be in the same network segment.

Step 1: Enter the intercom’s IP address from your browser.

Step 2: Access the intercom tab to see all the information about the main intercom.

Step 3: Review monitor data:
Add the iVMS4200 monitor and enter remote configuration to verify the data of the monitor.

Step 4: Link the main intercom to call the monitor.
a) In the remote configuration of the monitor select Network, then select Linked Network Configuration, in the line for (Main) Door Station IP Address write the main intercoms IP address.

b) In the web interface of the intercom access the intercom tab.
c) Select the Press Button to Call tab.
d) In the call column indicate the room number (number shown on the monitor).

Note: in this example, we are using a 4-button intercom that is the reason why the rows go from 1 to 4.

Step 5: Check on the monitor that the image of the intercom is visible in Live View.
Press button 1 on the intercom to confirm it works as intended and calls to the monitor.

Step 6: Configure the second intercom as extension 1 or secondary.
Enter the 2intercom’s IP and change the Villa Door Station No., set this value to 1 which corresponds to extension 1.

Note: If you are using two or more intercoms as extensions set numbers 2, 3, etc.
For example, if you are using a second extension.

Step 7: After restarting, enter NETWORK, Advanced setting, and enter the IP of the main intercom, in this way the secondary intercom will be linked to the main one.

Note: This step is done in every intercom that is placed as an extension.

Live view is displayed on the monitor as follows (1 Main and 2 Extensions)

Live view is displayed on the intercoms.
