CONNECTION AND SETUP
2.4 DVR Power On
This device should be operated only with the type of power source indicated on the manufacturer’s label. Connect
the indicated AC power cord to the power adapter, and plug into an electrical outlet. Then turn the power switch on
the rear panel to “—“. The power LED will be on.
Note: Before the DVR is powered on, make sure (1) the cameras are connected and power-supplied for
the detection of the camera video system to be correct, and (2) a HDMI monitor is connected to
the DVR for correct video output detection.
Note: To ensure that your DVR works constantly and properly, it's recommended to use an UPS,
Uninterruptible Power Supply (Optional), for continuously operation.
2.5 Date and Time Setting
Before operating your DVR, please set the date and time on your DVR FIRST.
Note: Please DO NOT change the date or time of your DVR after the recording function is activated.
Otherwise, the recorded data will be disordered and you will not be able to find the recorded file
to backup by time search. If users change the date or time accidentally when the recording
function is activated, it’s recommended to clear all HDD data, and start recording again.
Note: For the first time to use the DVR, please power it on for at least 48 hours continuously after the
date & time is set correctly. It helps to prevent DVR time from resetting after the disconnecting of
DVR power. If the DVR time resets after the disconnecting of DVR power, for example, caused by
a power outage, the battery might run out and please replace the battery as described in
“APPENDIX 9 DVR BATTERY REPLACEMENT” at page 87.

LS (Level of Sensitivity)
“LS” is to set the sensitivity of comparing two different images. The smaller the value is, the higher sensitivity
for motion detection. The highest sensitivity setting is 00, and the lowest sensitivity setting is 15. The default
value is 07.
2)
SS (Spatial Sensitivity)
“SS” is to set the sensitivity for detecting the size of one object (the number of the grids) on the screen. The
smaller the value is, the higher sensitivity for motion detection.
The highest sensitivity setting is 00, and the lowest sensitivity setting is 15. The default setting is 03.
Note: The default setting of SS is 03, which means once an object is detected more than 3 grids, the
system will get triggered. So the value of SS must be less than the number of grids that you set
up for the motion detection area.
3)
TS (Time of Sensitivity)
“TS” is to set the sensitivity regarding how long one object stays in the detection area and triggers the
recording. The smaller the value is, the higher sensitivity for motion detection.
The highest sensitivity setting is 00, and the lowest sensitivity setting is 15. The default setting is 02.

 To use our own DDNS server, select “eagleeyes” in “SYSTEM NAME”.
 The default host name is the MAC address of the DVR.
Then, note down the whole address under “CURRENT HOST ADDRESS”, such as
MAC000E53ECA7B4.ddns.eagleeyes.tw. This is the default IP address used to access your DVR remotely.
Note: Please at least use the default address to access your DVR remotely once. This is to ensure our
DDNS server has your DVR registered. Then, you may change the host name to a more
meaningful name to memorize later here.
 (Optional) Enter your email address to receive our DDNS server notification if any.

APPENDIX 3 PUSH VIDEO CONFIGURATION
APPENDIX 3 PUSH VIDEO CONFIGURATION
Note: Available only when your DVR supports Push Video.
A3.1 PIN Connection
This DVR supports sending instant event notifications to your mobile devices, such as iPhone, iPad and Android
mobile devices, for an alarm event (Push Video). However, only certain alarm-in pins support this function.
There are two methods to connect alarm sensors for Push Video to take efforts: via PUSH VIDEO alarm-in
terminal and via external I/O port.
PUSH VIDEO alarm-in terminal
A PUSH VIDEO alarm-in terminal is provided on the DVR rear panel, similar as the picture below, to help you
quickly find and connect to the pins which support Push Video.
Note: Below takes 16CH models as an example. For 8CH and 4CH models, the alarm-in terminal should
be 2 (for 8CH models) and 1 (for 4CH models).

APPENDIX 9 DVR BATTERY REPLACEMENT
APPENDIX 9 DVR BATTERY REPLACEMENT
DVR time reset after power failure, for example, caused by a power outage, will cause the disorder of the recorded data,
and users may have problems in searching the event clip they want. To keep the DVR time from resetting, a
non-chargeable lithium battery, CR2032, is installed in the DVR.
However, the DVR time might still get reset when the DVR battery is low or even running out of power. If so, please
replace the DVR battery, CR2032, right away as instructed below.

How to replace CR2032
Note: The lithium battery, CR2032, is a non-chargeable battery, and should be purchased separately.
Please replace only with the same or equivalent type battery in case of danger.
Step1: Stop all DVR recording immediately to prevent the disorder of the recorded data. Then, back up the
recorded data if necessary.
Step2: Power off the DVR, and disconnect the DVR power.
Step3: Remove the DVR cover, and find the battery on the mainboard.
Step4: Push the release as indicated below to remove the battery.
Step5: Get a new battery with the side of “CR2032” facing up, and install it to the mainboard.
