INTRODUCTION
Section 1
The Response 4 Channel DVR provides a total video security solution for 4 channel digital
surveillance supporting duplex (simultaneous playback and record) functionality.
The DVR’s front panel buttons or mouse can operate all DVR menu settings.
Please read before you start:
Always use discretion when installing CCTV surveillance equipment especially
when there is perceived policy. Enquire regarding local regulations applicable
to the lawful installation of video recording / surveillance. Third party consent
may be required.
SAFETY AND INSTALLATION TIPS:
Do not attempt to open the DVR unit with the power adaptor plug connected to avoid any
risk of personal injury.
When installing CCTV camera(s), always follow manufacturer’s advice when using power
tools, steps, ladders, etc. and wear suitable protective equipment (e.g. safety goggles) when
drilling holes. Before drilling holes through walls check for hidden electricity cables and
water pipes. The use of a cable/pipe detector is advisable.
When installing any cameras with this unit, it is advisable to use cable conduit to protect any
video / power extension cables from being exposed externally and to prevent/reduce the
chances of the cables being tampered with. After drilling any hole though an external wall
for a cable, ensure the hole is sealed up around the cable using a sealant to prevent drafts.
To prevent a fire or electrical shock hazard, do not attempt to open the housing while the
unit is exposed to rain, water or wet conditions. There are no user serviceable parts
inside. Refer servicing to qualified service personnel.

Change the record frame rate for each
channel - see Fig. 6.07. The higher the
record frame rate, the more natural
movement you will see in playback.
Independent setting for each channel is
possible.
For PAL video output format, the system
Fig. 6.07
default value is 12 frames per second
with each channel, which means the system will record 48 frames per second with all
channels. The user can set frame rate as 3 ~ 25 frames per second with each channel.
The maximum value of total frames per second with all channels is 50 frames.
For NTSC video output format, the system default value is 15 frames per second with each
channel, which means the system will record 60 frames per second with all channels.
The user can set the frame rate as 3 ~ 30 frames per second with each channel. The
maximum value of total frames per second with all channels is 60 frames.
Press button [SEL] / [CH4] or click the left mouse button to select icon “ ” to increase the

6.2.2 [RECORD QUALITY]
Choose the recording quality from 1 / 2 / 3. The highest recording quality is 3, and the
lowest recording quality is 1. The higher the recording quality is, the higher the video
image quality is during playback. The higher the quality, the more hard disk space will be
consumed. Record frame rate, recording quality and hard disk space will affect the total
recording time of the DVR system.
6.2.3 [RECORD SCHEDULE]
Note: To start motion record, make sure the period that you intend to record is “
” in
the “record schedule” menu. (Green bar - see Fig. 6.08).

6.3 Alarm
(Optional)
An internal buzzer built in the DVR will activate to alert the user that motion has been
detected by a Camera.
Press the [SEL] button or using the left mouse button, click icon “ ” / “ ”, to adjust
parameters of each option.
6.3.1 [BUZZER DURATION]
This sets the buzzer duration time (in
seconds) after an alarm is activated.
Selection values are “05, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30,
cont, off” (in seconds).
Default at “off”
(Fig. 6.09).
When “buzzer duration” is “cont”, the
buzzer will sound continuously.
Fig. 6.09
15
6.3.2 [EVENT REC DURATION]
This sets the recording duration (in seconds) after motion recording is activated. Selection
values are “ 05, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30 ” (in seconds).
6.3.3 [MOTION DETECTION]
[CHANNEL]
Select the channel (1, 2, 3, 4) for recording
by motion detection (Fig. 6.10).
[SENSITIVITY]
This adjusts the sensitivity of the built-in
motion sensor on the DVR system
while recording. The lower the number,
Fig. 6.10
the higher the sensitivity is. Values are
“1, 2, 3, 4, Off ”. The maximum sensitivity level is 1. It is recommended to set at 4.
Note: The system senses movement by the change in picture displayed on the monitor / TV
in the selected area. Even at the lowest sensitivity setting (4), if there are any changes in
light such as a reflections, movement of tree branches, bushes for example, it could cause
the system to start recording, although no approaching objects may be seen during
playback. If the sensitivity is set too high, natural activity such as rain for example may
cause the system to start recording. It is also ideal to point the camera way from trees,
bushes, that might be affected by the wind.
If this DVR is used with a Wireless Colour Camera CCTV Kit (CWFK1) to received
Wireless video, ensure this video viewed on the TV is the best possible reception (i.e, no
interference lines viewed on the TV) between the camera and receiver. If necessary
reduce the distance between the camera and receiver to prevent any interference on the
picture. This is important to prevent the DVR from capturing any unnecessary recordings
of interference when set to motion record. You may find that if the wireless camera is
installed outside the property, then maximum operating range without interference may be
no more than 10m (provided only a single brick wall acts as a barrier between the camera
and receiver).
