Instructions for the Hikvision device UPDATE Firmware
I. Update the firmware via a Web browser
Enter your device IP address into the browser (Chrome, IE, Firefox, Safari …) and log in. Then, navigate to the Configuration tab at the top of the page.
Now, continue to navigate to System → Mainintenace to go to the Upgrade & Maintenance page, where you will calculate the firmware update.
The firmware you just downloaded is the latest firmware, so you have to prepare it to find it easy to update.
Select the “Browse” button and select the location of the “digicap.dav” file that you downloaded. Double-click it and it will show the folder path in the previous empty box on the left.
If so, you will see a link pointing to the file you just downloaded. Proceed to upgrading by clicking Update
Note: The update process may take 1-10 minutes, Please do not power off the device and the computer at this time.
Confirm the update process successfully by opening SADP software and checking Software Vesion software columns of your phone – it will show updated versions.
If it is still in the old version, please follow the steps above again, there are some steps you did wrong.
II. Update firmware directly with USB
If your NVR is not accessible via the network, you can update the Offline recorder first by downloading your firmware to the USB. And follow these steps.
First, Plug this into the USB port on your NVR (Video Recorder)
Navigate to the NVRs Menu, Right-click -> Menu -> select Camera
It will take you to a familiar window below that you added the camera earlier. You will see a list of all the cameras added to your NVR.
Find the camera you want to update from the list, and tick the tickbox to the left of the camera in the table.
Next, click the Upgdade button at the bottom of the table.
Also, simply see the camera you want to update in the list and click the blue arrow in the Upgrade column below.
A warning message will appear, letting you know that the camera will restart automatically after the firmware upgrade is complete. Select Yes.
A window will open, It will display all the files listed on your USB drive. Locate the digicap.dav files you placed there before and select Upgrade. Click Upgrade
If the NVR opens to another device other than the USB of the update file, please check the update link.
This process may take from five to ten minutes, during which time your NVR will be unusable. The screen is black and we don’t see it working. Don’t worry it’s still working. Note that it is important not to do anything until your recorder starts automatically.
Finally, NVR will notify you that the upgrade device was successful. Click OK, and you’re done!
Wish you can use many new features on your software.
