Connect to the NVR
There are various ways you can connect to the NVR and below are
the suggested methods for different network setup:
• The NVR is placed in a network with a DHCP server: Connect to
the NVR by using “NVR Search” Utility
• The NVR is placed in a network without DHCP server (or you are
connecting to it directly): Access the NVR with its default IP
Use NVR Device Search Utility
If the NVR is placed in a corporate network or a local area network
where a DHCP server is already presented, run the “NVR Device
Search” utility from a computer that is on the same network and
locate the NVR with its IP address that is assigned by the top-level
DHCP server.
English
To begin, launch the “NVR Search” utility from the CD and proceed
with the installation:

Access the NVR with its default IP address
The NVR comes with a pre-configured static IP “192.168.101.50”.
However, it is only used when there is no DHCP server presented in
the network. The NVR will turn on its DHCP server function and act
as the DHCP server in the network. To connect to the NVR, use a PC
that is on the same network over a switch or hub, or connect the PC
directly to the NVR using a crossover CAT5 Ethernet cable.
The PC that is connected directly to the NVR (or within the same local
area network) should receive an IP from the NVR. Simply access the
NVR from your web browser with its IP address
English
Again, you should be prompted for the username and password. Enter its default username “admin” and password “admin” and then
click”OK” to enter the system

The “recording buffer” allows user to define “pre-alarm” and “postalarm” time for event recordings. The “pre-alarm” time sets the NVR
to record in advance when an event is triggered. The “post-alarm”
time sets the NVR to continue recording for a period of time after an
event trigger is finished.
* The “Pre-alarm” function only
works when the “Continueous”
recording is also activated.
Recording frame rate allows you to set different frame rate for different types of recording instead of recording at one frame rate only.

rates for a particular recording type
