I have a older Hikvision camera on firmware 5.2.0 . After defaulting the cameras i can't seem to be able to activate or get into the camera. Whats wrong?


Older Hikvision cameras on firmware version 5.2.0 and lower did not require activation.Once a camera on firmware 5.2.0 firmware is defaulted. The password for the camera is "12345" without the quotes. 

Hikvision strongly recommends that for cameras on 5.2.0 and lower firmware be upgraded to newer version if the firmware is available. If the firmware is not available, it is strongly recommended that the default password be change to something more complexe.
