Integrate your system with HikCentral using Optimus, an easy-to-use middleware solution

Optimus Program

We encourage our partners to register their Optimus Connectors with the Optimus Program to enjoy access to a wealth of technical and commercial resources. The Program is a community resource for our manufacturer and integrator partners to share Connectors they have created and to access Connectors that others have created. There’s no need to reinvent the wheel. Join the Program to access and download Connectors created by other Hikvision global technical partners that you can use with your project. You can also request that Hikvision develop a Connector to meet your requirements.
Members of the Optimus Program have access to:

  • Solution Co-Marketing
  • A Library of 3rd Party Connectors
  • Direct Technical Support

What's Optimus?

Hikvision is excited to launch Optimus. Designed to help you utilize the full power and versatility of HikCentral, Hikvision’s Central Management System (CMS), Optimus our middleware solution equipped with a Connector Software Development Kit (SDK), makes it simple for manufacturer and technology partners to integrate their products with HikCentral. Partners develop “Connectors” into Optimus and then have the ability to connect to HikCentral via the Optimus user-friendly graphical user interface (GUI). With Optimus you can develop various types of connectors, such as:

  • Access Control
  • Heating, Ventilation, Air Condition systems(HVAC)
  • Alarm Intrusion
  • Payroll Systems

What is a connector?

An Optimus Connector is an integration between a third-party system and HikCentral. Because Optimus is code-agnostic, Connectors can be created regardless of a product’s coding. A Connector can consist of triggers, events and data via the third-party system’s application program interface (API). Through the Optimus Connector Program, you can join a third-party program and receive the Connector Software Development Kit.

You may also request that Hikvision develop a Connector for your project requirements.

Build your own Connector, or have us build it for you

The Optimus Program offers two Connector development services. We can provide you with an Optimus Software Development Kit (SDK) as well as the necessary tools for you to certify your Connector with Hikvision. The Hikvision R&D center can also build the Connector for you with our development service.

How can you get a Connector Developed?

Here are the follow methods:

Connector details

Connector Development Training Content

A Connector integrates a third-party technology into the Hikvision Optimus middleware solution for use with the HikCentral Central Management System. Optimus connects to the third-party SDK to extract events, actions, data and other resources into Optimus. Once a Connector is developed, system integrators are able to bridge to systems such as HikCentral and a third-party access control system, for example. Connector SDK training from the Hikvision R&D team is available to members of the Optimus Program.

Build the Connector

Optimus Development Wi-Ki Guide

Hikvision provides partners with the Optimus Connector SDK and guide. Once you have developed your Connector in Optimus, you can submit your Connector on the Technology Partner Portal for certification. Once certified, you can manage your Connector in the Optimus Connector Program. Depending on your subscription levels, your Connector may be eligible to be marketed globally to increase your revenue stream.
