Niko external video unit


I have recently had this installed in my home, with complementary external video unit

I know there is an rtsp stream available (I’ve scanned for it, and when vlc tries to open it, it prompts me for credentials). I have had no luck finding those credentials, so this is a bit of a hail mary to see if anyone here knows the credentials, or knows where to find them?

Hi Jelle,

I’ve contacted Niko Support with the same question in May 2021.
‘This is not officially supported by Niko. We cannot give you more information.’

I found the RTSP location:
Default password (admin/123qwe) is not working.

So same here: stuck at the credentials part.

Can you try with username: “user” and empty password?

hi Tijs,

Thanks for the suggestion.
Not working unfortunately

Did anyone succeed to access the video stream from a Niko Digital Acces Control Unit (510-21400)?

No luck here so far. I wonder if the app uses the RTSP stream and if we could get the credentials by logging network traffic in our home network. However, I don’t have the capacity to do that right now.


same problem here.

no success yet?

It should be possible with wireshark. RTSP - Wireshark Wiki
But I think that the credentials will be encrypted.
