iVMS-4500 app is available on Android and iOS devices for versatile video management of Hikvision OEM DVRs, NVRs, IP cameras, encoders, decoders and other Hikvision products. This guide will help you to download, install and configure iVMS-4500 on your Android or Apple iOS device.

iVMS-4500 app provides multiple remote system functions including real-time live camera view, date/time search of events and recorded video playback, capture and save live pictures/video, PTZ camera controls, control of alarm output and configuration of the devices connected via a Wi-Fi or cellular 3G/4G LTE data connection. Supports Hik-Connect, IP address and Dynamic DNS domain name connections.

When properly configured by CLEAR IT SECURITY it can be used to meet the needs of your remote monitoring task. With it’s easy-to-use operations and intuitive interface, this software can be used by surveillance projects of various sizes and needs.

Please note: IP address and Dynamic DNS domain name connections require an internet routable IP address and port forwarding configured to forward ports 80, 8000 and 554 to your DVR/NVR/camera’s internal IP address. Also, the IP address should be allocated in the router or set to static IP on the DVR/NVR/camera’s interface to prevent the internal IP address from changing. Also, changing the router or restoring factory defaults will require re-setup of any settings configured on the router. Hik-Connect is a P2P Cloud Service that does not require opening of ports and will work with double-NAT internet configurations such as cellular networks.
