Do Hikvision DVR's have WiFi for the network connection or is there a way that they can be connected to WiFi so I don't need a cable to the router?

Most Hikvision (and other brands) CCTV recorders (DVR's and NVR's) don't have built-in WiFi for connecting to a network.

Connecting to WiFi is easy however using a device called a client bridge.

If your router has a WPS button you can connect the wireless bridge to your WiFi without any configuration and it is then simply a case of connecting the bridge to your CCTV recorder with an Ethernet cable as below.
