That´s certainly a nice camera capable of doing almost everything ;). There are so many different camera models out there now so it is really impossible to support all these cameras by a pre-made template. However, you can connect IP cameras in NCS in three ways:
- Network Camera: a pre-made template for a specific camera model where also PTZ work if the camera have that.
- ONVIF Source: many manufacturers comply with the ONVIF standard which makes it so much more easy to connect a camera to NCS (or any surveillance software). This gives video and audio.
- If 1 and 2 do not work we also have the Custom URL. Here you must know the exact URL for that camera. Sometimes that is very easy to find and sometimes more difficult, but Internet is a very good source. Using alternative 3 gives video and audio with the correct format, but no other feature like PTZ.
In your case I only see alternative 3 since the cam is not onvif compliant. It can work with a template for some other Hikvision camera, but no guarantees.
Hikvision have sort of a standardized URL for there cams so search for Hikvision in this forum and you will find some alternatives. I found this in a general information from Hikvision that have worked quite well
When you enter the URL remember to use the format:
Set Stream Type to rtsp_tcp.
Also, keep in mind that using all the 3 Megapixels of the cameras use a lot of computer power. Quite often a lower resolution is very adequate. Alternative is to find an IP camera that support onvif.
Good luck and you know where to find me ;).
