    Hikvision camera software have been written to suit Windows environment .If you want to run those software on Ubuntu ,you have to first install Wine .
    But Wine is not included in the Ubuntu Software center in Ubuntu 18.04.The Synaptic Package Manager is useful in installing most of the software that -
    has not been included in the Ubuntu software center.

    Installing Wine
    Open the terminal and run (or use Synaptic Package Manager)
    sudo apt install wine64

    Double click on the downloaded file to install SAPD tools (Only the SADPTool_V3.0.0.10 version woks with Ubuntu 18.04)

    In the above penal you can see the ip camera in the local network has been detected by SADP automatically .
    If you don’t have the device password of the camera, you can use SADP tools to reset it. In that case you will have to generate a QR code using -
    the SADP as shown in the figure below and take a picture of the QR code and e- mail it to the closest technical division of the Hikvision company .

    Then they will send you a xml file to be used in the SADP Tools to reset the device password.
