SAFETY TIPS
1. Make sure the cameras and the monitors are properly connected to the DVR.
2. The DVR should be placed in a dust and moisture free environment. It must never be directly exposed
to sunlight. Server room temperature is highly recommended to reduce the chance of overheating,
which may cause the DVR to become unstable.
3. During the boot up process, the DVR should not be interrupted by pressing any buttons on the mouse.
Do not unplug the power adapter or turn the DVR off during the boot up process.
