Dahua nkb1000 not showing in config tool

The Dahua nkb1000 is supposed to be supported by the Dahua Config Tool. However, it does not appear in the supported device list when using version 1.7.4. Dahua nkb1000 also doesn’t show up under My Cameras as other devices do in the config tool. The only way to discover the device in the config tool GUI is if you click on the New button and then choose the Device Listing tab and scroll down until you see it (but you can’t edit this device).


Things to do with a Dahua nkb1000

1. Make sure your DVR is plugged into a power source, and the power cord securely connects to the DVR and an outlet.

2. Check the network connection by checking all Ethernet cables are securely attached to their respective ports on both devices.

3. If you have a router, ensure it is connected to your computer via an Ethernet cable and turned on.

4. Go to My Devices > Config Tool on your Dahua NVR homepage and check for an IP address next to Network Status as well as WAN IP Status should be ON with both green check marks visible on the right-hand side of the page. 


Why can’t the IP Camera be found in the config Tool?  

The Dahua nkb1000 is a new IP Camera for 2016. The nkb1000 is an excellent addition to Dahua’s lineup of cost-effective and reliable IP Cameras. However, the data nkb1000 does not show up in the config tool. This may be because it was recently released and has yet to be added to the list. You can still manually add it by scrolling to Other on the list of cameras and clicking on Add Camera.

I had a Dahua nkb1000, but it needed to show up on the configuration tool. I checked and confirmed that it was plugged in, and then I tried restarting the device. That didn’t work, so I discovered that it had to be connected directly to a computer to show up on the configuration. After securing my device to my computer, I restarted the program and reconnected my machine, which fixed the problem.
