Setting Up IP Intercom For The First Time

Setting Up IP Intercom For The First Time
Introduction
This tech guide will step you though the steps to set up the HikVision IP Intercom for the
first time.
There are 3 sections in this tech guide.
Section 1.1 (On page 2) will guide you through the step on how to access the IP Intercom in
the iVMS software.
Section 1.2 (On page 3) will show you how to connect just 1 door station and 1 room station
to talk to each other.
Section 1.3 (On page 12) will guide you through how to connect 1 door station to many
room stations.
Before you begin
Ensure you have the iVMS software version 2.4.2.51 Build 20160818 installed on your
computer. This can be downloaded from the Ness Website.
Before you program your door and room stations ensure you have version 1.4.0 or later
installed. You can find the firmware version later on during the setup of the device.
Notes
These steps are based on factory default settings with the devices not yet activated.
It’s recommend you setup the door station before setting up the room stations.
Your computer’s IP address needs to have the IP address as 192.0.0.xx (eg. 192.0.0.30)
otherwise it will have issues communicating to the door station and room stations.

If you ever want to reconfigure this door station at a later time, you will need to know this
password.
6. Click on the door station from the bottom section and click on ‘Modify NetInfo’
7. Make sure the software version is v1.4.0 or above before continuing. If it’s not then you
will need to update the firmware before setting up the system. Refer to the firmware
update tech note for steps on how to update the firmware.

Master Room Station Setup
Handy tip when setting up room stations, connect the room station you are configuring
only, then plug the next one in etc. Connecting them all in together will make it hard to
work out what room station you are configuring since they are all displaying in the list with
the same IP address.
1. Connect a LAN cable into the room station and connect it to your network.
If you plug it into a PoE (24v) switch it should then power up, otherwise connect a separate
power supply to power it up.
2. Wait for the touch screen to fully power up, then select ‘Indoor Station / Master Station’
from the left menu in iVMS.
3. Select the room station from the bottom list and click on ‘Activate’
