I have 4 CCTV setup, all Hikvision, but a mixture of firmware 5.4 and 5.5
The Vera firmware upgrade last night to v1.7.1028 has stopped access to the v5.5 cameras with error “invalid credentials”. The only thing to change is the Vera firmware. They have been working without issue for months.
The cameras are not the ones supported by default rather they were added as “generic” cameras using a URL, which had been pre-tested in the browser.
One other minor issue is that the cameras that are still accessible no longer show a preview picture in the “camera” screen. They will show a picture if you open an individual camera. Before the upgrade there were 4 preview pictures in the camera home screen.
I post this as a warning to other HikVision camera owners and in the hope that someone might have already found the solution. >:(
