This tool will generate a password reset code which you may use to reset a forgotten admin password for a Hikvision camera.

Download for Android 2.3+

Enter your camera's complete CASE SENSITIVE serial number, as seen in the Hikvision SADP tool for every IP CAMERA

Important: The date you enter below much match with the camera's clock. Most likely it is not today's date! To find out what date your camera thinks it is, power cycle your camera, give it time to boot up, and then refresh your camera list in SADP and check the Start Time column.

Enter the 4 digit year the camera thinks it is:

Enter the 2 digit month the camera thinks it is:

Enter the 2 digit day the camera thinks it is:

Your password reset code will appear below.

The code must be entered into the IP Cameras via Hikvision SADPtool in the Serial code box (called Security Code in later SADP versions). The camera will compare its internal date and time with the date and time you have entered above. The Serial Number and date much match perfectly or else the code will not work. New password will be 123456789abc.

Usage of Toolkit

You can define some options:

* __-logins, -passwords__ — files where your logins and passwords are stored; it looks for «logins» and «passwords» by default;
* __-check__ — very useful, but still experimental option which allows to check a host before trying to log in (I did some reverse-engineering and I'm not really sure if everything is OK);
* __-shoots__ — a directory where pictures from cameras will be stored; it doesn't download pictures by default;
* __-threads__ — there's no multithreading until you define in how many threads you want to do a job;
* __-csv__ — write results to CSV file.

You can setup IP of your Cameras in the file called host (not system hosts),
You can put your logins in the file login,
You can put your passwords in the file passwords

Then type in Terminal Emulator in Linux or Windows
