    In order to solve your camera woes, sometimes you need to factory reset them. Below a a brief guide on how to factory reset each Alarm.com camera:

    Keep in mind that it is recommended that the cameras be powered on for at least 2 minutes before trying to factory reset. If the factory reset is attempted immediately after power up it will not work as the camera will still be rebooting. After performing a factory reset, it is strongly recommended to leave the camera alone and plugged into power for 2 minutes.

    I wish the factory reset worked on my ADC-V520IR. I’ve reset it dozens of times and it refuses to go back to the original factory firmware. The original Hikvision firmware allowed for a browser login to the camera using a default user login of root and a default ADC password. Now that does not seem to be the case. 🙁

    Factory resets do not return to older firmware. Just factory defaults of the current firmware.

    That makes sense. They must have updated the camera firmware remotely since I purchased it.
    The old ‘root’ and default password no longer works. Do you have an updated one? To avoid posting any sensitive information, you may reply direct to me via email using the email address I use for my forum accounts here.

    Thank you.

    Root credentials are randomized in ADC firmware. (Also, to clarify, the V520IR is a Vivotek OEM cam, not Hikvision)

    We cannot provide root camera access and do not have it ourselves.

    Access would be controlled through Alarm.com account settings under the Profile tab.
