LS (Level of Sensitivity) (For Selected Models Only)
“LS” is to set the sensitivity of comparing two different images. The smaller the

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) (For Selected Models Only)
“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

APPENDIX 5 DVR BATTERY REPLACEMENT
APPENDIX 5 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.
Step6: Replace the DVR cover and connect to power.
Step7: Set DVR date & time, and resume recording. For details, please refer to “2.4 Date and
Time Setting” at page 10, and “5.2 Record” at page 20.
