Digital Video Recorder User Manual
2.3.2 Installing Sensor Alarm
The DVR has 4,8, or 16 channel alarm input (depending on model) and
four-channel alarm output.
Alarm Input:
The alarm input is triggered by electric level (High: 5V, Low: 0V). Users can
connect external sensors, like gas detector, smoke detector and infrared
detector. Once the DVR detects that the electric level meets the setting user’s
make, it will trigger DVR recording or alarm out.
For example, a sensor is connected to alarm input1. Cable A and B will be
connected once the sensor detects an event. Users set Device type as NC
(Normal Close). It will input +5V (high level) to input1 when events happen. DVR
is triggered.
Fig 2.7 Sensor Connection
Alarm output:
The DVR has 4-channel relay alarm output, which just gives on/off signal to
external alarm. The status of these pin are illustrated as Fig. 2.7.

It may forced to stop because the hard drive has a disabled track which causes
the system to keep checking because it cannot skip over the track.
Try another hard drive or reformat the current one.
61
Digital Video Recorder User Manual
Q9: Why doesn’t the mouse work when inserted into the front USB jack?
The front USB jack is only for backup to flash drive, and USB DVD writer, and
does not support USB mouse. Please use the USB jack on the rear panel if
using a mouse to operate the system.

The method to input password and digital numbers is to click the box behind

After getting the upgraded firmware from Q-See, please copy it into a flash drive,

use the following method: first insert flash drive into the DVR, and then input
“adwsws” in the password of system login and the system will upgrade the
firmware from the flash drive automatically. After it finishes, please restart the

Notice: Do not power off in the system upgrading process! Otherwise, it
may damage the firmware and prevent the DVR from starting.
Q12: When I installed a hard drive used in another DVR of the same model it
was identified as a new hard drive why is this? And why must I format it
again?
When the DVR only uses one hard drive, the hard drive removed from another
DVR of the same model can normally work without re-formatting. When you add
another hard drive, it will identify the hard drive as a new one and inquire
whether to format even if this hard drive was used in another same type DVR
before. In this case, it can be used normally after being formatted according to
the guide; if two or more hard drives used in different DVRs, when used in
another DVR of the same type, they will be identified as two or more new hard
drives, and all of them need to be formatted. If you use drives removed from
different DVRs you will lose the data that is on them when they are formatted.

Appendix C Calculating Recording Capacity
Users can calculate the size of hard drive needed according to the saving
time and DVR recording settings. The DVR uses fixed video bit rate. Below are the
details for different settings for 200 fps 8-channel DVR.

The calculation formula is:
Total Recording capacity =Used space per hour (MB/h) (coverage rate of
hard drive) × recording time (hour) ×channel
numbers
For instance, if you use NTSC cameras, set resolution to CIF, video quality to Lower,
frame rate to 240 fps for enabling a total of 8 channels and you want the unit to
record continuously for a month. Below is the calculation:
Total Recoding capacity =112.5(mb/h) X 24(hours/day) X30(days)
X8(channels)
= 648000(MB)
= 648(GB)
In this case if you would install two 320GB SATA HDDs, it can almost record for one
month.
For 4-channel DVR:
Total Recoding capacity =112.5(mb/h) X 24(hours/day) X30(days)
X4(channels)
65
Digital Video Recorder User Manual
= 324000(MB)
= 324(GB)
If you install one 320GB SATA HDD, it can almost record one month.
For 16-channel DVR:
Total Recoding capacity =112.5(mb/h) X 24(hours/day) X30(days)
X16(channels)
= 1296000(MB)
= 1296(GB)
In this case you should install four 320 GB SATA HDDs, and you can record about one
month.
