CI run after commit:
git clone --recursive firstname.lastname@example.org:fbradyirl/hikvision.git cd hikvision # NOTE: You might need administrator privileges to install python modules. pip install -r requirements.txt pip install -e .
import hikvision.api # This will use http by default (not https) # pass False to the digest_auth parameter of CreateDevice to fallback to basic auth # (note that basic auth and http without ssl are inherently insecure) # more recent hikvision firmwares default to turning basic auth off # (and that's a good idea for security) hik_camera = hikvision.api.CreateDevice('192.168.2.5', username='admin', password='12345') hik_camera.enable_motion_detection() hik_camera.disable_motion_detection() hik_camera.is_motion_detection_enabled()
host(*Required) : This is the IP address of your Hikvision camera. Example: 192.168.1.32
username(*Required) : Your Hikvision camera username
