What is a Verification Code/Encryption Key?


The Verification Code or The Encryption key are additional layers of security to prevent the viewing of cameras remotely. The Hik-Connect app, Web GUI, or IVMS 4200 are the main modes that the recorder will ask for the aforementioned information. The older firmware will go by 'verification code' the newer firmware will go by 'encryption key' but they are the same thing.
