Hik-Connect for Teams released

Issue 8 2023 Products & Solutions, Surveillance

Hikvision has released an update for its security management platform, Hik-Connect. The updated platform is also known as Hik-Connect for Teams, as the new version not only meets the specific needs of individual users, but also caters to various medium-sized businesses (SMBs) and multi-site management scenarios from offices to chain stores and communities.

“Previously, Hik-Connect accounts only allowed one login that companies would have to share if they wanted multi-user access,” said Ryan Wu, the Product Director at Hikvision, “With SMBs’ growing need for collaborative workspace, we baked new team features into Hik-Connect. A primary admin user can now create a multi-user account containing predefined user roles and add the whole team to the account, improving business efficiency and maximising team output.”

Operational efficiency with centralised management

Hik-Connect for Teams supports video security, intercom management, access control and attendance solutions. Business owners and managers can benefit from visualised management, allowing them to easily keep track of all connected devices in the system, access real-time video feeds, and receive event notifications on the go.

The platform enables businesses to customise access levels for team members based on specific roles and responsibilities. This optimisation of workflow ensures seamless collaboration between team members.

Hik-Connect for Teams allows companies to start small with the devices they currently use and add more devices and capacities as the business grows. This way, they do not have to invest in new systems prematurely, allowing companies to maximise the benefits of the latest technologies without high upfront costs.

Being fast and easy to deploy, configure, and use, Hik-Connect for Teams eliminates the hassle of initial setup and IT management costs. Furthermore, the peer-to-peer (P2P) system eliminates the need for expensive centralised servers and continuous monitoring.
