• Overview

    At Hikvision, we always strive to develop and deliver the absolute best products and complete end-to-end solutions in the security surveillance industry. A successful surveillance operation is ultimately determined by its management platform. To achieve our vision for the best software-to-hardware solution, a video management platform must be complete, intelligent, and open.

  • Complete

    HikCentral is compatible with our entire line of Hikvision products. It offers features such as automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) and people-counting, and integration with access control (coming soon). HikCentral also supports the ONVIF protocol for integrating with other camera brands, making it a competitive solution that can satisfy your unique needs and meet your security challenges. 

  • Intelligent

    HikCentral is a video business intelligence (VBI) solution that provides features such as facial recognition, face matching and searching, and people counting analyses. By extracting valuable information from the database and generating reports to assist your business operations, as well as integrating with access control, entrance & exit automation with ANPR, and alarm management, HikCentral offers you an intelligent solution that improves efficiency and reduces cost.

  • Open

    HikCentral supports the ONVIF open standard. It's compatible with most mainstream brands and IP cameras with ONVIF support. It supports third-party proprietary protocols of the leading camera manufacturers, with continuous updates. HikCentral also offers an OpenSDK that allows users to develop add-ons on a web client. Such add-ons can be used to integrate with third-party systems.
