*Note: When connecting wiring harness, the Chassis Ground should be an isolated connection to a true
Chassis Ground not tapped into an existing ground circuit. The Signal Ground connections can be
combined and added to an existing ground circuit or a new ground circuit.
When extending wires on the power harness, a solder connection is recommended. If solder is not
available, a weatherproof butt style connector should be used.

Unit Installation
Mounting DVR
Mount the DVR unit inside the vehicle, with the below considerations:
•
•
•
•
Unit should be mounted in an area that has no exposure to potential moisture
When mounting unit, choose a location that will deter operator tampering but facilitate access
to the CF cards should they need to be removed for manual review.
All wiring harnesses should be protected with conduit, and rubber grommets should be used for
all through-metal runs to prevent chafing of the wires.
Unit is to be mounted using a screw-type fastener. No adhesive or Velcro should be used.
Mounting Cameras
Mount the cameras in the areas that are to be monitored, with the below considerations:
•
•
•
•
The Cameras are not to be installed in any location that will interfere with the
driver/operator’s direct line of sight.
Outdoor cameras should use rubber grommets for all through-metal runs and sealed with a
silicone to prevent wind noise or moisture from entering the vehicle.
Always dry-run your cables and connect the cameras to ensure they are recording what is
intended and at the right direction (e.g. not upside down).
Interior camera cables should be tucked into interior panels/under carpet to prevent tampering,
damage, and potential interference with the driver/operator.
Mounting Optional Speaker and Microphone
If the optional microphone is being installed, install inside the vehicle with the below considerations:
•
•
The microphone should be installed close to the driver/operator to ensure clear audio is heard.
The best place for microphone placement is typically the ‘A’ pillar of the vehicle.
Speaker(s) should be mounted close to the driver/operator to ensure they can hear clearly
without having to distract themselves to focus on the speaker location.

Encoding Settings
The Encoding settings determine the video quality and compression for live streaming. These settings
will be set by Safety Track prior to shipment, and should not be modified at any time. Modifying these
settings can alter the compression of the video which can cause undesired live viewing results, increased
data charges, and decreased storage intervals.
Video Settings
The Video Settings are used to adjust Brightness, Contrast, and Hue (Color). These settings can be
modified to adjust to a particular environment, however, it is recommended to keep the default settings
set by Safety Track.
Time Settings
The Time Settings are to set the DVR time to local time. The DVR uses GMT (Greenwich Mean Time)
adjustments to determine local time. Please use the below table to determine your GMT adjustment to
set your DVR to local time:

Plate Number
The Plate Number setting is not used on the DVR, it is set on the back end by Safety Track. This setting is
to give the DVR a unique identifier (e.g. Truck 38) for easy identification.

Executing this option will erase ALL video files currently on the CF card and cannot be recovered once
erased.
OSD (On Screen Display) Settings
The OSD setting is used for DVRs that are connected to an external monitor. This setting tells the DVR
which channel or channels to display on the OSD during normal recording.
11
Safety Track 249 Main Street Belleville, MI 48111 888-286-9829
Power Management

has been shut off. By default, Safety Track sets this time to 15 minutes. The maximum time the DVR will
record after the vehicle is shut off is 120 minutes.

DVR Serial Number
The DVR Serial Number option shows the SN of the device. This number is how the DVR identifies itself
with the streaming servers at Safety Track. This option will only be used during device troubleshooting
with Support Professionals at Safety Track.
3G Network Settings
The 3G Network Settings tell the DVR how to communicate with the streaming servers at Safety Track.
These settings will be programmed prior to shipment and are not to be modified. Modifying these
settings will cause the DVR to no longer stream video and will result in support charges.

Safety Track 249 Main Street Belleville, MI 48111 888-286-9829
12-28v ‘Alarm’ Input
The Alarm Input setting is for DVRs that have an external monitor. This option is to tell the OSD to train
to one camera when a voltage input is received. This option can be used for backup cameras, blind spot
cameras when turn signals are used, to watch a tow truck hook a vehicle when the PTO is engaged, etc.
Example – Backup Camera: The Channel 2 camera is affixed to the license plate. The Alarm 1 wire on the
Alarm Input harness is tapped into the reverse light and the channel on the Alarm Setting is set to Ch2.
When the vehicle is placed in reverse, the OSD will automatically train to Channel 2’s camera and display
it full screen. Once the vehicle is taken out of reverse, the OSD will revert to its default setting (quad
display, channel 1, etc.)
