Important Safeguards
In addition to the careful attention devoted to quality standards in the manufacture process of your
video product, safety is a major factor in the design of every instrument. However, safety is your
responsibility too. This sheet lists important information that will help to assure your enjoyment
and proper use of the video product and accessory equipment. Please read them carefully before
operating and using your video product.
Installation
1. Read and Follow Instructions - All the safety and
operating instructions should be read before the
video product is operated. Follow all operating
instructions.
2. Retain Instructions - The safety and operating
instructions should be retained for future reference.
3. Heed Warnings - Comply with all warnings on the
video product and in the operating instructions.
4. Polarization - Do not defeat the safety purpose of the
polarized or grounding-type plug.
A polarized plug has two blades with
one wider than the other.
A grounding type plug has two blades
and a third grounding prong.
The wide blade or the third prong are
provided for your safety.
If the provided plug does not fit into
your outlet, consult an electrician for
replacement of the obsolete outlet
5. Power Sources - This video product should be
operated only from the type of power source
indicated on the marking label. If you are not sure of
the type of power supply to your location, consult
your video dealer or local power company. For video
products intended to operate from battery power, or
other sources, refer to the operating instructions.
6. Overloading - Do not overload wall outlets of
extension cords as this can result in the risk of fire
or electric shock. Overloaded AC outlets, extension
cords, frayed power cords, damaged or cracked wire
insulation, and broken plugs are dangerous. They
may result in a shock or fire hazard. Periodically
examine the cord, and if its appearance indicates
damage or deteriorated insulation, have it replaced
by your service technician.
7. Power-Cord Protection - Power supply cords should
be routed so that they are not likely to be walked on
or pinched by items placed upon or against them,
paying particular attention to cords at plugs,
convenience receptacles, and the point where they
exit from the video product.
8. Ventilation - Slots and openings in the case are
provided for ventilation to ensure reliable operation
of the video product and to protect it from
overheating. These openings must not be blocked or
covered. The openings should never be blocked by
placing the video equipment on a bed, sofa, rug, or
other similar surface. This video product should
never be placed near or over a radiator or heat
register. This video product should not be placed in
a built-in installation such as a bookcase or rack
unless proper ventilation is provided or the video
product manufacturer’s instructions have been
followed.
9. Attachments - Do not use attachments unless
recommended by the video product manufacturer as
they may cause a hazard.
10. Camera Extension Cables – Check the rating of your
extension cable(s) to verify compliance with your
local authority regulations prior to installation.
11. Water and Moisture - Do not use this video product
near water. For example, near a bath tub, wash bowl,
kitchen sink or laundry tub, in a wet basement, near
a swimming pool and the like.
Caution: Maintain electrical safety. Power line
operated equipment or accessories connected to
this unit should bear the UL listing mark of CSA
certification mark on the accessory itself and should
not be modified so as to defeat the safety features.
This will help avoid any potential hazard from
electrical shock or fire. If in doubt, contact qualified
service personnel.
12. Accessories - Do not place this
video equipment on an unstable
cart, stand, tripod, or table. The
video equipment may fall, causing
serious damage to the video
product. Use this video product
only with a cart, stand, tripod,
bracket, or table recommended by the manufacturer
or sold with the video product. Any mounting of the
product should follow the manufacturer’s
instructions and use a mounting accessory
recommended by the manufacturer.
vii
Service
Use
13. Servicing - Do not attempt to service this video
equipment yourself as opening or removing covers
may expose you to dangerous voltage or other
hazards. Refer all servicing to qualified service
personnel.
19. Cleaning - Unplug the video product from the wall
outlet before cleaning. Do not use liquid cleaners or
aerosol cleaners. Use a damp cloth for cleaning.
14. Conditions Requiring Service - Unplug this video
product from the wall outlet and refer servicing to
qualified service personnel under the following
conditions.
A. When the power supply cord or plug is
damaged.
B. If liquid has been spilled or objects have fallen
into the video product.
C. If the video product has been exposed to rain
or water.
D. If the video product does not operate normally
by following the operating instructions. Adjust
only those controls that are covered by the
operating instructions. Improper adjustment of
other controls may result in damage and will
often require extensive work by a qualified
technician to restore the video product to its
normal operation.
E. If the video product has been dropped or the
cabinet has been damaged.
F. When the video product exhibits a distinct
change in performance. This indicates a need for
service.
15. Replacement Parts - When replacement parts are
required, have the service technician verify that the
replacements used have the same safety
characteristics as the original parts. Use of
replacements specified by the video product
manufacturer can prevent fire, electric shock or
other hazards.
16. Safety Check - Upon completion of any service or
repairs to this video product, ask the service
technician to perform safety checks recommended
by the manufacturer to determine that the video
product is in safe operating condition.
17. Wall or Ceiling Mounting - The cameras provided
with this system should be mounted to a wall or
ceiling only as instructed in this guide, using the
provided mounting brackets.
18. Heat - The product should be situated away from
heat sources such as radiators, heat registers,
stoves, or other products (including amplifiers) that
produce heat.
viii
20. Product and Cart Combination - Video and cart
combination should be moved with care. Quick stops,
excessive force, and uneven surfaces may cause the
video product and car combination to overturn.
21. Object and Liquid Entry - Never push objects for any
kind into this video product through openings as they
may touch dangerous voltage points or “short-out”
parts that could result in a fire or electric shock.
Never spill liquid of any kind on the video product.
22. Lightning - For added protection for this video
product during a lightning storm, or when it is left
unattended and unused for long periods of time,
unplug it from the wall outlet and disconnect the
antenna or cable system. This will prevent damage
to the video product due to lightning and power line
surges.
General Precautions
1. All warnings and instructions in this manual should be followed.
2. Remove the plug from the outlet before cleaning. Do not use liquid aerosol detergents. Use a
water dampened cloth for cleaning.
3. Do not use this unit in humid or wet places.
4. Keep enough space around the unit for ventilation. Slots and openings in the storage cabinet
should not be blocked.
5. During lightning storms, or when the unit is not used for a long time, disconnect the power
supply, antenna, and cables to protect the unit from electrical surge.

How port forwarding works
You need to enable port forwarding on your router to allow for external communications with your
system for the following port:
• 80 (HTTP port)
NOTE: For added security, we strongly recommend changing HTTP port 80 on the system to any desired
port—the port must not blocked by your Internet service provider (ISP).
Computers, DVRs, and other devices inside your network can only communicate directly with each
other within the internal network. Computers and systems outside your network cannot directly
communicate with these devices. When a system on the internal network needs to send or receive
information from a system outside the network (i.e. from the Internet), the information is sent to
the router.
NETWORK EXAMPLE

PC

DVR

192.168.0.3
Internet
Internal Network
Figure 26.0 Internal and External network diagram.
When a computer on the Internet needs to send data to your internal network, it sends this data
to the external IP address of the router. The router then needs to decide where this data is to be
sent to. This is where setting up Port Forwarding becomes important.
Port Forwarding tells the router which device on the internal network to send the data to. When
you set up port forwarding on your router, it takes the data from the external IP address:port
number and sends that data to an internal IP address:port number (i.e Router External IP
216.13.154.34 to DVR Internal IP 192.168.0.3:80).
The instructions found online in the Router Configuration Guides will assist you in the port
forwarding configurations for a selection of different router models. Visit our Consumer Guides
Support website at http://www.lorextechnology.com for more details.

router that requires the port forward information.
• The "Possible 2nd Router" refers to the router immediate to the internet connection. This is
the router that requires you to configure a DMZ host connection.
Scenario A: Router/Modem combination + Router
• You may have a router/modem combination, with a second router in your network.
Scearnio B: Multiple Routers
• You may have two routers in your network.

In both scenarios, the router that is immediate to the internet connection (Router 2 in illustration)
must act as a "bridge" to another router (Router 1 in illustration). The Auto Port Forwarding
Wizard must connect to Router 1.
A proper DMZ configuration in Router 2 allows all incoming traffic going through Router 2 to
automatically pass to Router 1. Router 2 acts as a "dummy" router and passes all the incoming
data onto Router 1. Router 1 is the router that needs the port forwarding information.
74
Lorex Auto Port Forwarding Wizard
Configuring a DMZ host connection
• Connect to "Router 1" on your network (referred
to as "Possible 1st Router" in the Auto Port
Forwarding Wizard). Obtain the IP address of
Router 1. Usually this can be found in the
"Status" section of your router menu. The IP
should begin with "192.168...."This IP address is
your DMZ IP.
Example
DMZ stands for Demilitarized Zone. Enabling a DMZ
IP on your router enables one of the routers to pass
information onto the second router.
DMZ IP address
assigned by a
secondary router
• Enter the IP address obtained from Router 1 into
the DMZ section of Router 2.
• Once you have configured Router 2 with a DMZ
connection, run the Auto Port Forwarding
Wizard to begin auto port forwarding to Router 1.

In order to obtain service, please make sure that you have registered your product
on-line (www.lorexcctv.com) in the warranty registration section. Should the
Product require service under this warranty, the Purchaser must provide Lorex with
a copy of his/ her original, dated bill of sale; receipt or invoice, failing which Lorex
will not perform any of its obligations under this warranty. If you return the Product
and/or CD-ROM to Lorex, you must assume the risk of damage or loss during
shipment. You must use the original packaging or the equivalent, and you must pay
postage.
To claim on this warranty, proceed with the following steps.
Obtaining Service
The purchaser may have other rights under state, provincial, or federal laws and
where the whole or part of any item of this warranty is prohibited by such laws, it
shall be deemed null and void, but the remainder of the warranty shall remain in
effect.
All expressed and implied warranties are limited in duration to the limited warranty
period. No warranties apply after that period. Some states do not allow limitation on
how long an implied warranty lasts, so this limitation may not apply to you. Some
states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential
damages, so the above warranty may not apply to you. This limited warranty gives
you specific legal rights and you may also have other rights that vary from state to
state.
Lorex does not warrant that the software will operate with any other software except
that which is indicated. Lorex cannot be responsible for characteristics of third party
hardware or software which may effect the operation of the software included.
Lorex’s responsibility under this, or any other warranty, implied or expressed, is
limited to repair, replacement or refund, as set forth above. These remedies are the
sole and exclusive remedies for any breach of warranty. Lorex is not responsible for
direct, special, incidental, or consequential damages resulting from any breach of
warranty or under any other legal theory including but not limited to, loss profits,
downtime, goodwill, damage to or replacement of equipment and property and any
costs of recovering, reprogramming or reproducing any program or data stored in or
used with a system containing the Product CD-ROM or accompanying software.
Lorex se réserve le droit de modifier la conception ou d'apporter des ajouts ou des améliorations à
ses produits, sans obligation de sa part de modifier les produits déjà fabriqués. Lorex fera tout en
son pouvoir pour fournir des améliorations et des réparations à son logiciel via son site web.
