Hikvision night settings
Sometimes though the environment is not too dark the system already switches to IR mode meaning black and white. If you want to adjust the sensitivity of the camera, you can to the settings on the camera. Step 1. In this case, this IP address is Step 2. Type the IP address on the web browser Internet Explorerlogin using your username and password. Step 3. Click it and you can directly go to the camera setting page. Note: you have to use the username and the password of the camera, most of the time the PoE NVR and the IP cameras share the same credentials.
Step 4. Set the supplement light to ON, and Auto and Manual are selectable for light mode. Select AUTO, and the supplement light changes according to the actual luminescence. For example, if the current scene is bright enough, then the supplement light adjusts itself to lower power; and if the scene is not bright enough, the light adjusts itself to higher power.
How to adjust the camera’s IR sensor in Hikvision PoE NVR
July 19, by Matthew Rossi. Sometimes a camera's automatic image settings don't provide satisfactory video for capturing faces or license plates. When this happens you need to manually adjust your image settings to capture what is necessary for prosecution. With day and night time profiles on our security camerasyou can finely tune the image settings to produce vibrant and clear pictures no matter what conditions are present. Our IP cameras can be set to a schedule for day and night mode, meaning you can control the hours of the day the camera will be in color or black and white mode and optimize their image settings for the time of day.
The video briefly explains various image settings and then explains how to set up profiles and schedules for day and night mode. Note: The written guide below covers how to connect to an IP camera, and may have some more information about profiles.
Feel free to supplement the video with the guide below if you need some further explanation. However, it was written in and may not apply to newer camera models. In order to log into the camera, it must be connected to your local network using a PoE switch. If you don't have a PoE switch then you will need to power the camera using one of the following:. When using the IP camera's built-in web server to access the settings you must use a browser that is compatible with ActiveX.
You can use Internet Explorer There are a few steps that you'll have to take with the browser in order have the ActiveX controls fully functional.
If you have your IP camera connected to your NVR directly you can also access the camera's web interface through your NVR without any complicated networking.
Before moving on to on Step 3 make sure your computer is connected to the same network as the IP camera. You've now landed in the settings portion of your IP camera's web server. Follow the guides below to configure the camera.
Hikvision - Different settings for day/night, auto switching.
If your time isn't set right, then setting a schedule would be pointless. The camera will be looking to its internal clock to keep its schedule. Optionally you may sync with an NTP Server. It is recommended that you do so as over time the camera starts to lose time. Just check the box, select your NTP server, make sure the camera has access to the Internet. If it's not that might be the cause of errors.Cameras with WDR technology have advanced sensors that can produce a wider range of lighting, allowing them to record in a higher light depth.
Technically, the IP camera will capture several shots of the scene at different exposure levels. This creates overexposed and underexposed identical images, which the camera will combine. Turning on the WDR may cause the picture to be whitewashed. If you are looking for a more colorful image, you should leave it off. At the same time, turning on the WDR will increase the image noise during the night time.
In other words, WDR should be enabled only if the scene is too bright and under heavy shadow on certain spots. From there you can select the ON option. Usually, the camera reboots and comes back to with new settings applied.
Once the settings are applied the image will go in and out a few times until it gets stabilized. At the same time, you need to check the picture quality during the night time, an enabled WDR may add noise to the image especially if the environment gets too dark.

Thread starter Munzz Start date Dec 11, Munzz Member. Messages 34 Points 8. Hello, I am wondering if it's possible to automatically switch from day to night mode, both modes using different image settings? As it stands, my setup is using the scheduled switch feature for day and night mode, purely because I want different exposure settings.
Is it possible for this switch to happen automatically dependant on light? Dan Administrator Staff member. Messages 1, Points Munzz said:.
Click to expand Thanks for confirming Dan, unsure why Hikvision dont implement this, seems fairly basic! Messages 70 Points 8. Good question Munzz. But from Dan's response i take it as no.

How to turn on WDR on Hikvision camera
Hi, i am having some difficulty in finding the right balance with my IP camera's, i was hoping someone could help. Day time viewing is spot on, however night viewing is the complete opposite. Moving cars are a blur. Compared to videos i have seen on youtube for the same camera's mine look now where as clear. Settings are the same for all 3 camera's.
Phil Administrator Staff member. Messages 4, Points Forgot your password? How is this used, and what is to be expected by selecting the box? When I select "Schedule", it displays an editable box for both Start and Finish. How does this work? Is this schedule used to tell the cam when I want it to switch from Day to Night I. What should I expect to have happen by selecting that box? Dynamic analysis puts markers on the live video where it detects motion to help you fine-tune your motion detect parameters.
This allows you to optimize the day image and night image separately. I've never seen smart IR do anything on mine, but it may depend on what version of firmware you have.
This is what I'd expect it to do on the Hik. Thank you! I'll give a try to each of them soon. Would love for the smart IR to be effective for close-up face shots. Dynamic Analysis for Motion. Normal configuration adopts one set of parameter for motion detection during the day and at night. Auto : the camera switches between the day mode and the night mode according to the illumination automatically. You can set it from 5s to s. Triggered by alarm input : The switch is triggered by alarm input, and you can set the triggered mode to day or night.
Thank you VERY much for providing this. This information is not contained in my NVR manual, nor the camera's brief instruction book.
Where did you find it? I think they're all fairly clear to me, but I need some clarification on this:. Thank you. What was your experience? Shoot me your email in a PM and I will send you a copy of it. The manual is written for and covers a wide range of cameras.Forgot your password? Hi - sorry for the camera setting newbie question. I have been playing with the camera settings but i can't seem to get the "grainy" look out of the night time view.
The day time views look great! You can also add in external illuminators. I am ok with some dark areas but the overall grainy look is what my first issue that I am trying to solve. I will turn down the gain tonight when it is dark and see if that helps. Weird that a couple of my external cameras don't have this grainy look and some do That's pretty good for a low end 5MP camera, you can't expect it to be as good as a 1MP or 3MP camera and all the settings in the world are not going to make it much better.
Some are definitely better than others for picture quality different environments for sure - but I will play with the DNR, gain, etc and see how it goes. When you are in an enclosed area where the IR LEDs reflect off objects and are nearer by, you'll get a clearer image.
Also, common to Hikvision is the IR illuminator is not wide enough for their widest angle lenses creating a spotlight effect. Putting in say 2 illuminators, one on each side of center would provide a more evenly lit image and less noise. For example, this is a Hikvision with a 4mm lens, many would be happy with this image.
I am ok with "dark spots" but surprised the overall grainy look of the picture. Otherwise love the new cameras so far. Yes it will. The grain you see that most of us call noise is because the camera is trying to push the sensor beyond what is reasonable.
You can control this by reducing max gain to say 50, but then the image will be dark. It will also save on disk space as it takes more bits to store noise.
If you have a suspect in that image, the noise will make identifying the suspect all that more difficult.
