Notice-Hikvision DS-4000 Series Card Update

As our supplier has stopped the production of a chip which is used in our DS-4004HCI, DS-4008HCI, DS-4016HCSI, DS-4016HCI, DS-4002MDI, DS-4004MDI, DS-4004HCI+, DS-4008HCI+ series products and released new chip for replacement, we have included relative compatibility design in our V4.2 and higher version SDK. Now our inventory on that chip is running out and we are going to apply the new chip on the card products. Since the card function is not affected by the chip replacement, the module name for each product keeps the same.

For some technical reasons, the newly released card (start from 0650000 in the last 7 digits of card SN) can only run in software based on V4.2 SDK or a higher version, which means that you should have software based on V4.2 SDK or a higher version to use these card products.

And for special reminding, please get V4.2 or higher version SDK, or software based on it when mix use old cards with new ones, or replacing old cards with new ones. The latest V4.298 SDK can be downloaded from our website www.hikvision.com. We are sorry for any inconvenience may cause. If you have any questions or requirements, please feel free to contact us at (0086-571) 88075998-8883, (0086-571) 88075998-8800 or This email address is being protected from spambots.
