Automated backups can be done using Hikvision backup net software. https://www.hikvision.com/en/support/tools/hitools/cl45bc1a305792e4ff/ Please take note that backing up footage does take a lot of processing ability and should be scheduled to run at quiet times as it uses a lot of bandwidth too.

When your warranty is valid, we endeavour to repair the unit as quickly as possible whilst still maintaining a high quality of work. If a unit needs to be swapped out, you will also receive an Invoice once the unit is ready for collection. Swop-out units will be invoiced at no cost to you. If we do not have stock of your unit, we will notify you and place your unit on back order.

One of the service controllers will assist in logging a repair ticket with your details and the nature of the problem. You will be notified of the fault via email. Depending on the outcome of the assessment, your unit/s will be repaired or returned.

Yes. An assessment fee will be charged to assess the unit if not under warranty. Please bring a copy of your Tax Invoice with you and we will gladly assist.

2 – The Video format settings are incorrect must be on PAL and not on NTSC

3 – HDD is not initialised
