The device verification code is a code used by Hikvision devices (NVR, DVR, camera) to verify and establish the connection between the Hikvision P2P service and the device. Many users are not able to locate this code, this article will show different ways where to find and locate the Hikvision device verification code.

Method 1. Find the device verification code on the label/sticker of the device. All the Hikvision products, USA version, OEM version, even for other markets, come with a label (as shown below). Check the box of the device, or underneath the recorder and you’ll find the label imprinted with the model, serial number and the device verification code.

Method 2. Find the device verification code on the local GUI (interface) of DVRs/NVRs. Go to Main Menu > Configuration > Network > Platform access. There you will find the device verification code (six capital letters). If empty, create your own verification code (let’s say ABCDEF).

Method 3. Find the verification code in the device web configuration interface for both camera and Hikvision NVR/DVR. After you login into your device via web browser, go to Configuration > Network > Platform Access. There you can locate your device verification code. If empty, create a new one.
