It could be possible that the device does't respond to ICMP packets. If it features SNMP, you might want to use the MIB file from hikvision. I found this one. You should be able to monitor the camera with the SNMP Library Sensor, given that the MIB file matches the device.

Here's a Knowledge Base Article that describes the setup of SNMP Library Sensors.
There's also a video that shows how to do that :)
