Update firmware on HikVision devices

For the test, I will update the firmware on the DVR DS-7204HQHI-SH with the firmware version 3.1.3.

Download the new version of the firmware from the official site:

Also they can be found on the Internet on third-party sites, for example here:

I used this (3.3.2 (151123)):

It should approach such devices: DS-7204HGHI-SH, DS-7204HQHI-SH, DS-7208HGHI-SH, DS-7208HQHI-SH, DS-7216HGHI-SH, DS-7216HQHI-SH, DS-7304HGHI-SH, DS-7304HQHI-SH, DS-7308HGHI-SH, DS-7308HQHI-SH, DS-7316HGHI-SH, DS-7316HQHI-SH, DS-7324HGHI-SH, DS-8104HQHI-SH, DS-7332HGHI-SH, DS-8108HQHI-SH, DS-8104HGHI-SH, DS-8116HQHI-SH, DS-8108HGHI-SH, DS-9004HQHI-SH, DS-8116HGHI-SH, DS-9008HQHI-SH, DS-8124HGHI-SH, DS-9016HQHI-SH, DS-8132HGHI-SH

Let’s go to the web interface of the DVR by typing its IP address in the address bar, I opened it via Internet Explorer, because Mozilla Firefox did not let me specify the firmware file.
Enter username and password (standard admin/12345)
Open the “Settings” tab, then “Service”.
Where the line “remote software update” is clicked “Browse” and we indicate the firmware file (unpacked from the previously downloaded archive), in my case was “digicap.dav”, press the “Update” button and wait for the process to finish about 5 minutes.
During firmware, you can not turn off the power of the device, otherwise it can be damaged.

This completes the firmware update procedure.

By the way, on the old firmware, the IP address of the device was obtained by DHCP, and if it did not, it was, in the new firmware, IP is obtained only by DHCP, or it can be specified manually by connecting the monitor to the DVR.
