This article shows you four different methods of unbinding your Hikvision device from another Hik-Connect account.


TABLE OF CONTENTS


Log into your Hik-Connect account and manually delete the device


Use the Hik-Connect unbind function when connected to the same router as the device

If your mobile phone is connected to the same internet router as the recorder/camera, you can use Hik-Connect to unbind it. 


Simply scan the QR code on the device as if you were adding it to your account, and the app will alert you that the device has already been added to the account. Tap the 'Unbind' button and the app will prompt you to enter the username and password that have been set on the device. The username will always be 'admin' unless it has been manually changed. You will also need to enter the verification code shown in the app.


Unbind the device via the local recorder interface (does not apply to stand-alone cameras)

If your recorder is on the new firmware (GUI4.0) you can also unbind the device by going into the local recorder menu via a TV or monitor, then Network > Advanced-> Platform Access-> Hik-Connect. Select the unbind button.


Unbind devices using SADP when connected to the same router as the device

If your laptop or computer is connected to the same internet router as the recorder/camera, you can use SADP to unbind it. Download SADP for Windows here, or download SADP for Mac here.


Open up SADP and select the recorder/camera by ticking the box on the far right side of the screen.


Click the 'Unbind' button at the top of the window. SADP will prompt you to enter the username and password that have been set on the device. The username will always be 'admin' unless it has been manually changed. You will also need to enter the verification code shown.


Notes


1. If the recorder is in a location where it is not connected to a recorder, you may have to bring a router on site to allow for another device to be on the same local area network.


2. When unbinding using Hik-Connect or SADP on the LAN, you must ensure that the area where the device
is located is the same as the location of the account which the device is bound to.
