
eZ.Controller: Easily control eZ.HD camera’s OSD at the DVR end.
Traditionally, the CCTV installer needs to take a portable monitor to connect to the camera for
controlling the camera OSD at the camera installation site as the Diagram A below. It will take
extra effort, time and people to adjust the camera.
Now, EverFocus’ eZ.Controller allows users to control the camera OSD simply on the monitor
at the DVR end as illustrated in Diagram B.

can also receive live video streaming from the mobile DVR using your smartphone.
Note: Since every Network Configuration is different, please check with your Network
Administrator or ISP to see if your mobile DVR should use specific IP addresses and/or port
numbers.
6.7.1
LAN
According to your network environment, select Static IP, DHCP or PPPoE to configure an IP
address to the mobile DVR.
Network Type: Three options are selectable: Static IP, DHCP and PPPoE.
Static IP: User can set a fixed IP for network connection.
DHCP: DHCP server in LAN will automatically assign an IP configuration for the network
connection.
PPPoE: For direct connection to the DSL only. Verify with your ISP if they use PPPoE.
IP address: Displays the mobile DVR’s current IPv4 IP Address. A static IP address must be set
manually. If DHCP is selected, this value will be assigned automatically.
100
EMV400S FHD / EMV400SSD Mobile DVR
Subnet Mask: Displays the subnet mask for your network so the mobile DVR will be recognized
within the network. If DHCP is selected, this value will be assigned automatically.
Gateway: Displays the gateway on your network for the mobile DVR to use when
communicating with any devices not on the local network. If DHCP is selected, this value will be
assigned automatically.
DNS Server 1: Displays the primary DNS server for your network. If DHCP is selected and an
internet connection is available, this value should be assigned automatically. This field must
have a valid DNS address in order to use the DDNS feature (see 6.7.5 DDNS).
DNS Server 2: This field shows the secondary DNS server for your network.
HTTP Port: Port number for HTTP/WEB communication.
Bandwidth Limit (Kbps): Specify, disabled / 128 K/ 256 K / 512 K / 768K / 1M / 3M bps. This is
the maximum bandwidth that the mobile DVR is allowed to use on the network. This is a useful
function when connecting the mobile DVR to busy or heavily loaded networks, or when
accessing the mobile DVR(s) over a WAN.

alarm).
Anonymous viewer login: Check the box to allow the unauthorized persons to log in the Web
page of the DVR. Note that to protect your DVR from being taken over by unauthorized
persons, make sure the "Anonymous viewer login" button IS NOT checked/selected.
Save: Click to save the settings.
Additional information:
1. Set up the mobile DVR Network Menu according to the instructions detailed in the
Networking chapter of this mobile DVR’s manual.
a. If using DHCP, all settings will be detected automatically. While DHCP is a useful tool for
determining the network settings, if you set up your mobile DVR in this manner its IP
address may change at different times for different reasons, particularly after a power
failure. If the IP address of the mobile DVR changes, you may have difficulties accessing
your mobile DVR locally and/or remotely. It is strongly recommended that you assign a
fixed (static) IP address to your mobile DVR, and that in order to avoid address conflicts
the IP address assigned be outside of the DHCP range of addresses your router issues to
DHCP clients. Please do not set the DHCP address issued to the mobile DVR by the
router as its static IP address unless you take specific steps that program your router to
prevent such address conflicts.
b. If using a Fixed IP (recommended), you will need to input the information manually. In
order for DDNS to work, you must enter valid data, compatible with your network, for
all four of the network setting fields: IP address, subnet mask, default gateway and the
DNS Address (depending on your network hardware and IP configuration this may be
the IP address of your router/gateway, or it may be the actual IP address of the local
DNS server). The DNS server IP is required because your DNS server provides critical
information necessary for the mobile DVR to communicate with the DDNS server.
101
EMV400S FHD / EMV400SSD Mobile DVR
You can obtain the actual DNS IP from your Internet Service Provider (ISP); or, from a PC
located on the same LAN as the mobile DVR, go to http://www.dnsserverlist.org/ to obtain a
list of the IP addresses of their recommendation of the best servers to use for your location.
2. If you are connecting through a router, make sure that you have ‘opened up’ all the
required network ports in the port forwarding section of your router’s setup options. That
is, you have directed the router to send any incoming traffic using those IP ports to the LAN
IP address of the mobile DVR. Useful information about router port forwarding can be
found at www.portforward.com . Different routers may use different terms for port
forwarding function. For instance, D-Link calls it virtual server, Netopia calls it pinholes.
The default port for the mobile DVR is: 80
Note: Port 80 is the default port used for Web browsing. Because of this, in order to
prevent the average user from hosting a Web server, most ISPs BLOCK traffic using port 80
from reaching the average site. If you only plan to view your mobile DVR on a LAN, you can
use port 80, and don’t have to concern yourself with DDNS or routers. However, if you
desire remote access to your mobile DVR, perhaps using DDNS (optional), you MUST select
functional ports and set up the port forwarding in your router. Other ports, such as 8080
and 8000 are sometimes blocked by ISPs as well.
What port(s) should be used? There are 65,535 valid IP ports to choose from. These are
broken down into three groups:
•
Well Known Ports 0 thru 1023
•
Registered Ports 1024 thru 49151
•
Dynamic and/or Private Ports 49152 thru 65535
So, rather than encounter a port conflict by choosing a port commonly used for another
purpose (like port 25 for SMTP mail or port 448 for secure sockets), choose an ‘unusual’
port number. For example, add 50,000 to your house number: 50,123 is less likely to lead
to a port conflict. For a list of the known and registered ports, see
http://www.iana.org/assignments/port-numbers

DDNS assigns a domain name (URL) to the mobile DVR, so that the user does not need to go
through the trouble of checking if the IP address assigned by DHCP Server has changed. Once
the IP is changed, the mobile DVR will automatically update the information to the DDNS to
ensure it is always available for remote access.
Before enabling the following DDNS function, user should have applied for a host name from
the DDS service provider’s website. We support two DDNS server providers:

Record: Displays Record mode.
Resolution: Recording resolution is displayed.
Normal: Frame rate in FPS for continuous recording. It is important to keep track of the normal
recording resources being allocated at each hours of the day. Increasing the Normal recording
resolution and/or rate can inadvertently request more recording resources than the mobile
DVR is capable of delivering, or allocate so much of the mobile DVRs resources that there is no
excess available for increased FPS rate and/or resolution in response to an Event.
The speed is limited by the maximum total recording capacity of the mobile DVR as allocated
across TV standard in global setting, all the installed cameras, with an upper limit of 30 FPS
(NTSC – 25 PAL) per individual camera (real time recording).
Since EverFocus mobile DVRs have the capability to change the FPS rate in response to events,
it may be advisable to reserve some recording capacity for event response.
Event: Maximum desired frame rate in frames per second (FPS) for event recording; if more
than one camera requires simultaneous event recording, the total for all cameras cannot
121

The mobile DVR allows you to use a Web browser to remotely view and manage the system. You
can also receive live video streaming from the mobile DVR using your smartphone.
Note: Since every Network Configuration is different, please check with your Network
Administrator or ISP to see if your mobile DVR should use specific IP addresses and/or port
numbers.
7.3.7.1 LAN
According to your network environment, select Static IP, DHCP or PPPoE to configure an IP
address to the mobile DVR.
LAN Port: Select 1 from the drop down list.
Network Type: Three options are selectable: Static IP, DHCP and PPPoE.
Static IP: User can set a fixed IP for network connection.
DHCP: DHCP server in LAN will automatically assign an IP configuration for the network
connection.
PPPoE: For direct connection to the DSL only. Verify with your ISP if they use PPPoE.
IP address: Displays the mobile DVR’s current IPv4 IP Address. A static IP address must be set
manually. If DHCP is selected, this value will be assigned automatically.
Subnet Mask: Displays the subnet mask for your network so the mobile DVR will be recognized
within the network. If DHCP is selected, this value will be assigned automatically.
Gateway: Displays the gateway on your network for the mobile DVR to use when
communicating with any devices not on the local network. If DHCP is selected, this value will be
assigned automatically.
176
EMV400S FHD / EMV400SSD Mobile DVR
DNS Server 1: Displays the primary DNS server for your network. If DHCP is selected and an
internet connection is available, this value should be assigned automatically. This field must
have a valid DNS address in order to use the DDNS feature (see 7.3.7.5 DDNS).
DNS Server 2: This field shows the secondary DNS server for your network.
HTTP Port: Port number for HTTP/WEB communication.
Bandwidth Limit (Kbps): Specify, disabled / 128 K/ 256 K / 512 K / 768K / 1M / 3M bps. This is
the maximum bandwidth that the mobile DVR is allowed to use on the network. This is a useful
function when connecting the mobile DVR to busy or heavily loaded networks, or when
accessing the mobile DVR(s) over a WAN.
Network ID: The network ID is an identifier for the alarm transmitter (mobile DVR sending the
alarm).
Anonymous viewer login: Check the box to allow the unauthorized persons to log in the Web
page of the DVR. Note that to protect your DVR from being taken over by unauthorized
persons, make sure the "Anonymous viewer login" button IS NOT checked/selected.
Save: Click to save the settings.
Additional information:
1. Set up the mobile DVR Network Menu according to the instructions detailed in the
Networking chapter of this mobile DVR’s manual.
a. If using DHCP, all settings will be detected automatically. While DHCP is a useful tool for
determining the network settings, if you set up your mobile DVR in this manner its IP
address may change at different times for different reasons, particularly after a power
failure. If the IP address of the mobile DVR changes, you may have difficulties accessing
your mobile DVR locally and/or remotely. It is strongly recommended that you assign a
fixed (static) IP address to your mobile DVR, and that in order to avoid address conflicts
the IP address assigned be outside of the DHCP range of addresses your router issues to
DHCP clients. Please do not set the DHCP address issued to the mobile DVR by the
router as its static IP address unless you take specific steps that program your router to
prevent such address conflicts.
b. If using a Fixed IP (recommended), you will need to input the information manually. In
order for DDNS to work, you must enter valid data, compatible with your network, for
all four of the network setting fields: IP address, subnet mask, default gateway and the
DNS Address (depending on your network hardware and IP configuration this may be
the IP address of your router/gateway, or it may be the actual IP address of the local
DNS server). The DNS server IP is required because your DNS server provides critical
information necessary for the mobile DVR to communicate with the DDNS server.
You can obtain the actual DNS IP from your Internet Service Provider (ISP); or, from a PC
located on the same LAN as the mobile DVR, go to http://www.dnsserverlist.org/ to obtain a
list of the IP addresses of their recommendation of the best servers to use for your location.
177
EMV400S FHD / EMV400SSD Mobile DVR
2. If you are connecting through a router, make sure that you have ‘opened up’ all the
required network ports in the port forwarding section of your router’s setup options. That
is, you have directed the router to send any incoming traffic using those IP ports to the LAN
IP address of the mobile DVR. Useful information about router port forwarding can be
found at www.portforward.com . Different routers may use different terms for port
forwarding function. For instance, D-Link calls it virtual server, Netopia calls it pinholes.
The default port for the mobile DVR is: 80
Note: Port 80 is the default port used for Web browsing. Because of this, in order to
prevent the average user from hosting a Web server, most ISPs BLOCK traffic using port 80
from reaching the average site. If you only plan to view your mobile DVR on a LAN, you can
use port 80, and don’t have to concern yourself with DDNS or routers. However, if you
desire remote access to your mobile DVR, perhaps using DDNS (optional), you MUST select
functional ports and set up the port forwarding in your router. Other ports, such as 8080
and 8000 are sometimes blocked by ISPs as well.
What port(s) should be used? There are 65,535 valid IP ports to choose from. These are
broken down into three groups:
•
Well Known Ports 0 thru 1023
•
Registered Ports 1024 thru 49151
•
Dynamic and/or Private Ports 49152 thru 65535
So, rather than encounter a port conflict by choosing a port commonly used for another
purpose (like port 25 for SMTP mail or port 448 for secure sockets), choose an ‘unusual’
port number. For example, add 50,000 to your house number: 50,123 is less likely to lead
to a port conflict. For a list of the known and registered ports, see
http://www.iana.org/assignments/port-numbers

Record: Displays Record mode.
Resolution: Recording resolution is displayed.
Normal: Frame rate in FPS for continuous recording. It is important to keep track of the normal
recording resources being allocated at each hours of the day. Increasing the Normal recording
resolution and/or rate can inadvertently request more recording resources than the mobile
DVR is capable of delivering, or allocate so much of the mobile DVRs resources that there is no
excess available for increased FPS rate and/or resolution in response to an Event.
The speed is limited by the maximum total recording capacity of the mobile DVR as allocated
across TV standard in global setting, all the installed cameras, with an upper limit of 30 FPS
(NTSC – 25 PAL) per individual camera (real time recording).
Since EverFocus mobile DVRs have the capability to change the FPS rate in response to events,
it may be advisable to reserve some recording capacity for event response.
194
EMV400S FHD / EMV400SSD Mobile DVR
Event: Maximum desired frame rate in frames per second (FPS) for event recording; if more
than one camera requires simultaneous event recording, the total for all cameras cannot

the problem.




The mobile DVR will not go into record mode.

Bring up the mobile DVR’s Menu and check under the Camera Menu. Verify that all
connected cameras are checked as “Installed” and that Record Mode is set to
“Continuous”.

Check the Storage or Information Menus and verify that the internal storage is being
detected.
The mobile DVR displays nothing on the main monitor.

Make sure the monitor is connected to either BNC Main Monitor port or the VGA port. If
the monitor has multiple inputs, make sure it is on the correct input source and display
setting (1024x768).

Check that the monitor cables are good and power is on.

Verify the recorder is getting the correct supply power.
There is no display coming from one of the channels on the mobile DVR.

In the mobile DVR’s Camera Menu, make sure that all cameras are checked as “Installed”
and unchecked for “Covert”.

If there is still no picture, switch ports or connect a working camera to the port that has no
picture. If you get an image, the problem is coming from the camera or cable.
I cannot connect to the recorder via the internet.

Check that you can connect to the mobile DVR on the LAN.

Check that the mobile DVR has a static IP address and the port used by the mobile DVR is
forwarded correctly to that IP address in the router.

Verify that your Internet Service Provider does not block the IP port being used

Make sure you are using the correct WAN IP address given by the ISP, or, if you have a
Dynamic IP, check if the IP address has changed; use DDNS to avoid problems caused by
changing ISP addresses.

Appendix

Appendix A: Network Overview
This chapter will give you a basic instruction on how to set up the mobile DVR for network
connection. It is highly recommended that you have a working knowledge of what a network is and
how it works. This will be helpful in completing the networking process.
Introduction to TCP / IP
TCP/IP is the group of protocols used by the Internet and most Local Area Networks (LANs)
throughout the world. In TCP/IP, every computer or other communications device that is connected
to the network has a unique IP address. By doing this you are giving your device a unique address
similar to the address of your house. An IP address is composed of four octets (numbers in the
range of 0 to 255) separated by decimal points. The IP address is used to uniquely identify a host or
computer on the LAN. For example, one computer on a network could have an IP address of
192.168.1.127.
You should never give two or more devices the same exact IP address, but the first three octets of
an IP address is often the same for all computers in the local area network. For example, if a total of
253 computers exist in a single LAN, the IP addresses could be assigned starting with 192.168.1.x,
where x represents a number in the range of 2 to 254. In IPP address could be compared with a
telephone number.
Subnet Masks
Each host in a LAN has a subnet mask. The subnet mask is a set of octets that is used to determine
which LAN or class it belongs to. The number 255 is usually used to represent the network address
portion of the IP address and a zero is placed at the end to identify the host portion of the address.
Basically the subnet mask tells the devices how the network addresses are organized, and helps to
determine which addresses are local and which are remote (on the other side of the router).
222
EMV400S FHD / EMV400SSD Mobile DVR
Gateway Address
Addressees are either local or remote. A gateway address is composed of four octets separated by
decimal points. The gateway address is used to uniquely identify the device on the LAN that has
access to the communications links connecting to other LANs, WANs and/or the Internet (access to
the ‘remote’ addresses).
Virtual Ports
A port number represents a "channel" or entryway for network communications. Port numbers
allow different computers to utilize network resources without interfering with each other. Port
numbers most commonly appear in network programming, particularly socket programming.
Sometimes, though, port numbers are made visible to the casual user. For example, some websites
on the Internet use a URL like the following:
http://www.sitename.com:8100/
In this example, the number 8100 refers to the port number used by the browser to connect to the
web server. The standard port number used by web sites is 80, so this number does not need to be
included with the URL (although it can be). In IP networking, port numbers can theoretically range
from 0 to 65535. Most popular network applications, though, use port numbers at the lower end of
the range (such as 80 for HTTP). Ports are similar to doors and windows of your house, with port 80
acting as the front door. If these are not open you could not enter the house. This is the same case
with ports on a network. If the ports for a specific IP address are not open then you could not gain
access to that IP address.
Note: The term port also refers to several other aspects of network technology. A port can
refer to Ethernet connection points, such as those on a hub, switch, or router. The term port is
also used to refer to a physical connection point for peripheral devices such as serial, parallel,
and USB ports.
Another analogy would be: if a WAN IP address is similar to the phone number identify a site, IP
ports are similar to telephone extensions, in that they allow communication with specific devices
within a site that all share the same external (WAN) IP address. A router is a device which allows
multiple computers and other IP enabled equipment to share that single WAN IP address. It
functions like a “switchboard operator” – opening ports creates an association between those port
numbers and the LAN IP address of specific equipment on the LAN behind the router. When the
router sees a ‘call’ for a specific ‘extension’ (port), it directs that data stream to the (LAN IP address
of the) equipment associated with that ‘extension’ (port).
223
EMV400S FHD / EMV400SSD Mobile DVR
Pre-Installation
Before beginning the installation, please answer the following questions:

Do you have Hi-speed Internet?
______________
There are many types of high speed Internet available. The most common ones are T1, Cable,
and DSL (in order of speed). The mobile DVR is not compatible with a dial-up connection.
Note: EverFocus suggests having a minimum upload speed of 256KBps. This can be addressed
by your Internet Service Provider.

What type of modem/router do you have? _________________________
Modem/router model name/ #
The modem/router was either installed by your Internet service provider or purchased by you
to establish a connection to the Internet. A router assigns different internal IP addresses to
local computers; this allows multiple computers to access the Internet through the same
external IP address.

Do you have a static IP address? ______________
A Static IP address means you use the same IP address every time you connect to the Internet.
With a static IP address, other Internet users always know the address of your location and can
easily connect with it. This makes it much simpler to host a website, email server, or other type
of server connection. Everfocus suggests using a static IP address. If this is not available, you
will need to use a dynamic IP address. This is explained below.

Do you have a dynamic IP address?
______________
A Dynamic IP address means your IP address changes each time you connect to the Internet.
We recommend asking your Internet service provider for a Static IP address. If this is not a
possibility, you may use the DDNS feature of the mobile DVR. DDNS stands for Dynamic
Domain Name Server, a service that provides a central database where IP information can be
stored and retrieved. It allows those using a dynamic IP address to be registered centrally so
users can connect to it by name. See 7.3.7.5 DDNS for details on using EverFocus DDNS.

What type of (mobile) DVR are you installing? ______________
The default ports are
ECOR264: 80
Paragon: 80
ECOR: 80, 1600
EDR/Emobile DVR: 80, 1600, and 37260 – 37263
EMV: 80
ELUX: 80
If the ports were changed in the Network Setup, use those port numbers.
224
EMV400S FHD / EMV400SSD Mobile DVR
Pre-Installation
EverFocus’ mobile DVR can operate using one of three types of networking connections.
Simple One to One Connection: A simple one to one connection is the simplest type of network
connection. It uses a cross-over cable to make a direct connection from one computer to another
(or in this case a computer to a mobile DVR).
Direct High Speed Modem Connection: A direct modem connection uses a standard network cable
to connect the modem directly to a computer (or in this case a modem to the mobile DVR). This
type of connection only covers single-port modems. For a combination modem/router, use the
setup described below.
Router or LAN Connection – A local area network connection requires either a router or a preexisting LAN connection. This is the most common type of connection. A router allows multiple
computers and mobile DVR’s to access each other as well as the Internet. It assigns different
internal IP addresses to the computers.
