If I wire to an alarm input of a IP camera that is part of a Hikvision NVR, can I set the NVR to full screen monitoring and expect to see a single camera come up on the monitor connected to the NVR when the alarm input is triggered?


No, when setting up full screen monitoring. The alarm inputs of the NVR MUST be used. There is no option on a Hikvision IP camera to force down full screen monitoring to the NVR.

IP Camera alarm inputs are typically used for camera stand alone situations.
