Wiring alarm outputs to the NVR
1.1 Install a monitor, mouse, power
The NVR provides 4 alarm output terminations. These terminations for each output are on the ALARM OUT connector block on the back of the
NVR , and are labeled 1 - G, 2 - G, 3 - G, 4 - G (G = ground termination).
For the following steps, refer to the back panel photo above for the location of connectors.
There are 4 jumpers (JP1, JP2, JP3, and JP4) inside the chassis on the alarm termination PC board, associated with ALARM OUT pins 1, 2, 3
and 4 respectively. Initially, these jumpers are in place. If connecting an alarm output to a DC loaded alarm out circuit, the jumper must be in
place. If connecting the alarm output to an AC loaded alarm, the corresponding jumper must be removed. Example: If you connect an AC load
to the alarm output 3 of the NVR, then you must remove the JP 3.
To remove a jumper for AC load alarm circuits:
1.
Install and setup your monitor in accordance with the instructions provided with the monitor. Do not power it on at this time.
2.
Cable the HDMI or VGA connector to your monitor’s VGA or HDMI input. The HDMI interface provides the best performance.
3.
Plug the mouse into the USB connector on the front or back of the NVR.
4.
If you plan to access your NVR remotely, or configure your NVR to transmit alerts, email, etc. to external servers, plug a drop cable from
your local area network (LAN) into the RJ45 LAN connector on the back of the NVR.
5.
Connect the power cord to the power connector on the back panel of the NVR, and then into a UPS (preferred) or surge protector.
1.
Disconnect all cabling from the NVR.
2.
Remove the NVR top cover: Remove the two cover screws on the back of the chassis, the slide the cover toward the back until it is free.
3.
Locate the jumper associated with the alarm output you are using for an AC load alarm, then remove it. Save the jumper for use later,
if needed.
Step 2. Connecting it together – initial system setup
Reinstall the NVR top cover.
1.
4.
NOTE
Do not power on the NVR at this time.
Plug the LAN cables from the cameras into the POE RJ45 connectors on the back of the NVR.
If other cameras to be monitored by the NVR will network to it through the LAN, plug their Ethernet cables into a switch (router) on
the LAN and power on those cameras. (Power to other cameras on the LAN may be provided through a PoE switch if the camera is PoE
capable, or through a separate cable and power adapter).
DC load alarm output circuits
DC loads must operate within the limitation of 12V/1A. To connect to a DC alarm output, use the following diagram:
2.
Power on the NVR using the power on / off (I / O) switch on the back panel.
3.
Power on the monitor.
NOTE
Some monitors have multiple inputs such including VGA ,HDMI, BNC, etc. If you are using this kind of monitor, configure your monitor to
display the input connected to your NVR (HDMI or VGA).
Step 3. Using the Wizard for basic configuration setup
AC load alarm output circuits
To connect an AC load to an alarm output, a jumper, associated with the output on the alarm termination PC board, (within the chassis), must
be removed. These jumpers shunt pin pairs J1, J2, J3, and J4 for alarm outputs 1, 2, 3, 4 respectively. Use an external relay for safety.

1.
Power on the NVR. Normally, an Alibi logo splash screen appears within 2 minutes. A secondary flash screen will appear showing the
status of the HDDs installed in the NVR.
© 2014 Observint Technologies. All rights reserved.
Observint strongly recommends that you change the default admin user password to improve the security of your surveillance system.
To change the admin password, check the New Admin Password box, then enter the new password in the New Password and
Confirm fields.
After the Alibi splash screen appears (see above), the NVR will check the status of HDDs installed within the chassis, and show the
show icons on the screen indicating their status. A green check mark on the icon indicates that the associated HDD is operating
normally. If you installed new (or uninitialized) HDDs in the chassis before running the Wizard, those HDDs must be initialized before
use. HDD initialization can be performed within the wizard and within the firmware menu system.
Following the splash screen, a monitor resolution screen may appear. Open the drop down list and select the monitor resolution you
prefer, then click OK.
2.
The Setup Wizard can assist you in making important configuration settings in DVR. Click Next button on the Wizard window to open
the Login window.
NOTE
The configuration settings presented in the setup Wizard can also be made and changed using the Menu system. See Chapters 5 - 7
for more information.

Click the Next button to open the date and time settings window.
Enter the admin password in the appropriate field. To do that, click inside the Admin Password field to open the virtual keyboard.
Click the appropriate keys (icons) to enter the password, then click the Enter icon. The default admin password is 1111.

5.
In the date and time setup window, click the field you want to change, then use the drop-down list or setup aid to select the
appropriate values. Click Next to confirm your settings or Cancel to discard them and open the network setup Wizard window.
6.
In the Network setup Wizard window, click the field value you want to change, then use the pop-up aid to enter a new value. By
default, the DVR uses DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Processor) to acquire compatible (dynamic, changeable) network settings
from a network DHCP server.
8.
In the next window, the Wizard will search the LAN to find compatible cameras to add to the system.
With the ALI-NVR5016P, you can monitor up to 16 IP cameras total (the sum of those attached to ports in the integrated 16-port
Ethernet switch plus those added from the LAN the NVR is attached to).
With the ALI-NVR5032P, you can monitor up to 32 IP cameras total (up to 16 attached to the 16-port Ethernet switch on the back
of the NVR plus up to 16 added from the LAN the NVR is attached to).
Generally, it is preferable to setup the DVR with a fixed network settings, if possible, to assure the DVR has an unchanging IP address
for remote login. To enable fixed network settings, un-check the Enable DHCP box, then edit the appropriate fields to change the
settings. Consult with your network administrator to determine the best network settings for your DVR. When finished, click Next.
Check the select boxes for the cameras you want to add, then click the Add button (see above).
9.
7.
6
Click Next after you configured the network parameters. The HDD management Wizard window will open. If a new DVR is shipped
with a pre-configured HDD, nothing needs to be done in this window. If you installed an HDD or replaced the HDD, select (check the
box for) the HDD, then click Init to setup the disk for the DVR. NOTE: Init will erase all data from the disk. When the initialization is
complete, click Next to continue.
www.Observint.com
On the next screen, you can configure all cameras to begin recording video either continuously, when motion is detected, or not
record (select no options). The recording mode of individual cameras can be configured using the menus in the firmware. See the
ALI-NVR5000P Series Embedded Network Video Recorder User Manual for more information.

Click the star for Continuous or Motion Detection, click Yes in the Attention pop-up window, and then click OK to save the
settings. The Wizard will close and the NVR will present the Live View display. See the ALI-NVR5000P Series Embedded Network
Video Recorder User Manual for more information.
Live View display after camera adjustments
Step 4. Access the Menu system
After the initial setup of your DVR using the Wizard, the Menus interface enables you to refine your configuration settings and expand the
functionality of the system. To use most menus, the user must log into the DVR system, either locally or remotely, with administrative
privileges.
To open the Menu system from the Live View screen, right click anywhere in the screen, then select Menu.
Live View display
10. While viewing video from each cameras in the Live View display, adjust the direction of each camera to aim it at its surveillance
target. Follow the manufacturer’s recommended procedures for aiming the cameras.
