NodeJS Module for communication with Hikvision IP Cameras.

Status: Work in Progress

Example:

#!/usr/bin/nodejs
var     ipcamera    = require('node-hikvision-api');

// Options:
var options = {
    host    : '192.168.1.100',
    port    : '80',
    user    : 'admin',
    pass    : 'password123',
    log     : false,
};

var hikvision   = new ipcamera.hikvision(options);

// Switch to Day Profile
hikvision.nightProfile()

// PTZ Go to preset 10
hikvision.ptzPreset(10)

// Monitor Camera Alarms
hikvision.on('alarm', function(code,action,index) {
    if (code === 'VideoMotion'   && action === 'Start')  console.log(getDateTime() + ' Channel ' + index + ': Video Motion Detected')
    if (code === 'VideoMotion'   && action === 'Stop')   console.log(getDateTime() + ' Channel ' + index + ': Video Motion Ended')
    if (code === 'LineDetection' && action === 'Start')  console.log(getDateTime() + ' Channel ' + index + ': Line Cross Detected')
    if (code === 'LineDetection' && action === 'Stop')   console.log(getDateTime() + ' Channel ' + index + ': Line Cross Ended')
    if (code === 'AlarmLocal'    && action === 'Start')  console.log(getDateTime() + ' Channel ' + index + ': Local Alarm Triggered: ' + index)
    if (code === 'AlarmLocal'    && action === 'Stop')   console.log(getDateTime() + ' Channel ' + index + ': Local Alarm Ended: ' + index)
    if (code === 'VideoLoss'     && action === 'Start')  console.log(getDateTime() + ' Channel ' + index + ': Video Lost!')
    if (code === 'VideoLoss'     && action === 'Stop')   console.log(getDateTime() + ' Channel ' + index + ': Video Found!')
    if (code === 'VideoBlind'    && action === 'Start')  console.log(getDateTime() + ' Channel ' + index + ': Video Blind!')
    if (code === 'VideoBlind'    && action === 'Stop')   console.log(getDateTime() + ' Channel ' + index + ': Video Unblind!')
});

function getDateTime() {
    var date = new Date();
    var hour = date.getHours();
    hour = (hour < 10 ? "0" : "") + hour;
    var min  = date.getMinutes();
    min = (min < 10 ? "0" : "") + min;
    var sec  = date.getSeconds();
    sec = (sec < 10 ? "0" : "") + sec;
    var year = date.getFullYear();
    var month = date.getMonth() + 1;
    month = (month < 10 ? "0" : "") + month;
    var day  = date.getDate();
    day = (day < 10 ? "0" : "") + day;
    return year + "-" + month + "-" + day + " " + hour + ":" + min + ":" + sec;
}

Functions:

// Switch Camera to Night Profile
hikvision.dayProfile()

// Switch Camera to Night Profile
hikvision.nightProfile()

// Issue hikvision RAW PTZ Command (See API Manual in GitHub Wiki)
hikvision.ptzCommand(cmd,arg1,arg2,arg3,arg4)

// Go To Preset
hikvision.ptzPreset(int)

// PTZ Zoom, input level: positive = zoom in / negative = zoom out
hikvision.ptzZoom(float)

// PTZ Move
// Directions = Up/Down/Left/Right/LeftUp/RightUp/LeftDown/RightDown
// Actions = start/stop
// Speed = 1-8
hikvision.ptzMove(direction,action,speed)

// Request current PTZ Status
hikvision.ptzStatus()

// Callback for any Alarm (Motion Detection/Video Loss & Blank/Alarm Inputs)
hikvision.on('alarm', function(code,action,index){  });

// Callback for PTZ Status
hikvision.on('ptzStatus', function(data){  });

// Callback on connect
hikvision.on('connect', function(){  });

// Callback on error
hikvision.on('error', function(error){  });

  • host - hostname of your hikvision camera
  • port - port for your hikvision camera (80 by default)
