of electric shock. (See 3-Prong Plug
and Outlet.)
Grounding
To prevent
electric shock
and death from
incorrect grounding
wire connection:
Check with a qualified
electrician if you are in doubt
as to whether the outlet is
properly grounded. Do not
modify the power cord plug
provided with the tool. Never
remove the grounding prong
from the plug. Do not use the
tool if the power cord or plug
is damaged. If damaged, have
it repaired by a service facility
before use. If the plug will not
fit the outlet, have a proper
outlet installed by a qualified
electrician.
2.
The grounding prong in the plug is
connected through the green wire inside the cord to the grounding system
in the tool. The green wire in the cord
must be the only wire connected to
the tool’s grounding system and must
never be attached to an electrically
“live” terminal. (See 3-Prong Plug
and Outlet.)
3.
The tool must be plugged into an
appropriate outlet, properly installed
and grounded in accordance with all
codes and ordinances. The plug and
outlet should look like those in the
preceding illustration. (See 3-Prong
Plug and Outlet.)

Tools marked with “Grounding Required” have a three wire cord and
three prong grounding plug. The
plug must be connected to a properly
grounded outlet. If the tool should
electrically malfunction or break
down, grounding provides a low
resistance path to carry electricity
away from the user, reducing the risk
SKU 67139
1.
Tools marked “Double Insulated” do
not require grounding. They have
a special double insulation system
which satisfies OSHA requirements
and complies with the applicable
standards of Underwriters Laboratories, Inc., the Canadian Standard
Association, and the National Electrical Code. (See Outlets for 2-Prong
Plug.)

As the distance from the supply outlet
increases, you must use a heavier
gauge extension cord. Using extension cords with inadequately sized
wire causes a serious drop in voltage,
resulting in loss of power and possible tool damage.
(See Table A.)
The smaller the gauge number of the
wire, the greater the capacity of the
cord. For example, a 14 gauge cord
can carry a higher current than a 16
gauge cord. (See Table A.)

Symbology
When using more than one extension cord to make up the total length,
make sure each cord contains at
least the minimum wire size required.
(See Table A.)
If you are using one extension cord
for more than one tool, add the
nameplate amperes and use the sum
to determine the required minimum
cord size. (See Table A.)
If you are using an extension cord
outdoors, make sure it is marked with
the suffix “W-A” (“W” in Canada) to
indicate it is acceptable for outdoor
use.

Grounded tools require a three wire

tools can use either a two or three

Operating Instructions
Read the entire Important
Safety Information
section at the beginning of this
manual including all text under
subheadings therein before set
up or use of this product.
Work Area Set Up
1.
Designate a work area that is clean
and well-lit. The work area must not
allow access by children or pets to
prevent distraction and injury.
2.
Route the power cord and all cabling
along a safe route without creating a
tripping hazard or exposing the cord
and cables to possible damage.
3.
Use a surge protector (sold separately) to help guard against electrical
power fluctuations.
4.
IMPORTANT: Before mounting any
of the cameras, test the unit by hooking up all the connections, and testing all the features to insure the unit
is working properly. There are two
6mm cameras for longer range, and
two 3.6mm cameras for wider angle,
shorter range, viewing. Test the
cameras for the best location before
installing. Each camera is labeled on
the side of the unit.
Setup Overview
This unit can be set up in several different configurations. The simplest is
with a TV monitor. For set up through
the internet there are specific software requirements and you will need
to have an understanding of your modem, your computer and your internet
connection settings, as well as port
SKU 67139
1.
DVR with a TV monitor (sold separately) - This is the simplest set up
that allows you to adjust all the settings, view and record live images
and play back any recordings. You do
not have computer or internet capabilities with this set up.
2.
DVR with a computer and a TV monitor (both sold separately) - This set
up allows you to view recorded files
on a computer connected to the unit.
You cannot record when the unit is
connected directly to the computer.
3.
DVR and a computer, connected
to the same modem and accessed
through your web browser (computer
and modem sold separately) - This
set up allows you to adjust all the
settings, view and record live images,
and play back any recordings through
your web browser. You will first need
a TV monitor to set up the system.
This option may not function with all
web browsers.
4.
Remote access through your internet
service - This arrangement allows
remote access to the DVR through
the internet. You will need to have the
unit already set up as in the previous paragraph, and have computer
and internet set up knowledge of port
forwarding and your modem’s external IP address in order to set up this
configuration.

TV, such as the Monitor (SKU 66556,
sold separately), plug the BNC connector of the video cable into the
Video Output slot, and the other end
into the video Input or channel slot
on the TV monitor. Plug the TV into a
wall outlet. The unit will power up.
Note: For model 66556, if needed, change
the channel on the front of the
monitor so the light on the monitor is
green and adjust the image using the
adjustment knobs on the back of the

To read the above charts, refer
to the total frame rate and video
quality settings which you have set
the cameras to (under “Setting up
the DVR Functions Through the
Main Menu” Section - sub sections:
“Record Frame Rate” and “Video
Quality”).
NTSC and PAL are different
broadcast standards. Each country
uses one standard. Your unit is set to
NTSC for use in the United States.
The fps (frames per second) is the
total frame rate. The Quality is the
video quality. The numbers in the
body of the the charts are the number
of hours of record time. For instance,
in the top chart (Type=NTSC), if you
set the unit to a total of 60 fps and
the quality to High, you will be able
to record for 88 hours to a hard drive
which has 160GB of available space.
A larger hard drive will allow for more
recording time.

Adding DVR to Trusted Sites
Every computer that is accessing
the DVR will need to be configured
to download and run ActiveX controls. This is a one time change and
only needs to be made on the computer that is accessing the DVR. This
can be done by changing your web
browser settings so it only affects
websites that you specifically add
to the trusted sites list. Or you can
change the setting for all websites.
It is recommended that you only
change the setting for your trusted
sites.
Note: If your router does not support
DHCP, contact your network administrator to supply you with your IP
information. If the DVR needs to store
PPPoE (DSL/ADSL) settings, contact
your ISP (Internet Service Provider)
for the proper settings.
Preparing Your Computer for
Viewing the DVR

Viewing Your DVR
Outside of Your Network
Once you have successfully set up
and viewed your DVR through a
router, you are now able to set up
your router to view the DVR while at
a remote location. This process is
called Port Forwarding. Port Forwarding is required if you want to view
the DVR from a computer that is not
connected to the same router. This
process opens a path on your home/
business network to allow you to view
your DVR video feed from outside
your network (over the Internet).
There are many makes and models
of routers. You will need to follow the
instructions from your router’s manufacturer for port forwarding. Consult
online sources or have a qualified
computer technician complete this
task if needed.
Once you have successfully set up
port forwarding from the modem
where the DVR is located, you will be
prompted to enter your user name
(default: admin), password (default:111111) and install ActiveX controls. You will now be able to view the
DVR from any PC in the world with
internet access and proper computer
settings.
