What is the stream key?
This is also known as the verification code, which is an extra layer of security to prevent malicious actors from remotely adding and viewing your cameras using the QR code/serial number of the device.
This guide relates to Hikvision cameras running iVMS-4200 software.

On the recorder GUI

Where to enter the stream key/verification code
- In the main IVMS-4200 control panel click on Device Management.

How do I turn it off?
If you'd prefer not to have this enabled this must be done using the recorder interface with a TV/monitor and a mouse.
