Hello,

I have an Hikvision DS-KD-M card reader, attached to my KD8003 door intercom.
DS-KD-M firmware is 1.0.0 and I just downloaded the 2.0.0 version. Unzipping the file there is two .bin files in it, identical in size and similar name: one ends with "net", and one ends with "serial". Which one should I use? No explanation anywhere.

VIS_DS_KD_XX_M2pro_GML_GM_V2.0.0_build210223_Net.bin
VIS_DS_KD_XX_M2pro_GML_GM_V2.0.0_build210223_Serial.bin

thank you in advance to anyone who may help!

use the net version, that one can be upload with network
serial, i think it can only be used if you use a serial cable connection

Well eventually it turned out I cannot upgrade it. In the EU firmware download there is an explanatory txt that says that unless there is a N in the label behind the device, you are stuck to firmware 1.0.0.
Why is it that the same global company has different downloads, and different versions, between different geographic areas, one may wonder...
