INTRODUCTION
CHAPTER 1
FOR YOUR SAFETY
To prevent damage to your Q-See product or injury to yourself or to others, read and
understand the following safety precautions in their entirety before installing or using this
equipment. Keep these safety instructions where all those who use the product will read them.
WARNING! ELECTRIC SHOCK RISK!
nCheck the unit and any accessories included in the package immediately after opening. If
items are missing or damaged, repackage and return to the point of purchase.
n Use the proper power source. Only use the power adapter supplied with your system. Do
not use this product with a power source that applies more than the specified voltage (100240V AC).
nNever insert anything metallic into the DVR. Inserting anything into the DVR or its case can
be a source of dangerous electric shock.
nDo not operate in dusty areas. Avoid placing the DVR in places that are dusty.
nDo not expose this product to rain or use near water. If this product accidentally gets wet,
unplug it and contact an authorized dealer immediately.
nKeep product surfaces clean and dry. To clean the outside case of the DVR, gently wipe
using a lightly dampened cloth (only use water, do not use solvents).
nDo not operate this DVR without the cover securely in place. Do not attempt to do any
repairs to the DVR yourself. If there are unusual sounds or smells coming from the DVR,
unplug it immediately and contact Q-See technical support. Under no circumstances
should the cover be removed while the device is connected to a power source. You should
only remove the cover to install/replace the hard disk drive (See Chapter 7) or replace the
standard 3v lithium cell battery on the motherboard. These are the only user serviceable
parts. You may need to replace the battery if the internal clock resets itself after a power
outage
nHandle the DVR carefully. If you accidentally drop your DVR on any hard surface, it may
cause a malfunction. If the DVR doesn’t work properly due to physical damage, contact an
authorized dealer for repair or exchange.
nMake sure there is proper air circulation around the unit. This DVR system uses a hard drive
for video storage which generates heat during operation. Do not block air holes located on
the bottom, top, sides and back of the DVR as they are designed to keep the system cool
while running. Install or place this product in an area where there is ample air circulation.
nProvide proper ventilation. This DVR has a built-in fan that properly ventilates the system.
Do not cover or impede this fan.

2.2 MOUSE
2.3 REMOTE CONTROL
The USB mouse can only be used when connected to the USB port on the rear panel. The
system will not recognize it when connected through the front panel port. The mouse is the
default tool for navigating through the menus. Specific instructions for its use within a function
appear in the appropriate sections of the manual, but a basic overview is below:
The remote control allows you to perform most of the
day-to-day functions from a convenient distance. It
functions as a typical remote control with additional
buttons allowing you to navigate through menus and
control functions. We recommend that you configure
your DVR using the mouse controls, reserving the
remote control for operations such as live viewing, file
search and playback.
In Live View:
Double-click the left button on any camera
view in split-screen mode to bring it to fullscreen display.
Double-click again to return to split-screen
mode.
Right-click to show the control bar at the
bottom of the screen.
It uses two AAA-sized batteries. If the remote’s
performance degrades, check the batteries as
well as that the IR receiver window on the DVR is
unobstructed.

Right-clicking again will hide the control bar.
In Setup:
Left-click to make a selection. Right-click to

4.4 SCHEDULE CONFIGURATION
You can set the length of time the DVRs record an event before and after a motion detection
or alarm is triggered as well as how long an individual record is preserved.
Your DVR is configured to record whenever motion is detected. If this is your desired setting
then you will not need to make any changes. However, you may configure each channel to
record at specific times based on time of day, motion detection or other sensor input. There
are three tabs; Schedule, Motion and Sensor
Pre-alarm record time: This sets the length
of time showing events prior to a
motion detection or sensor-triggered
event that is included in the record.
Schedule Tab
The schedule for automatic recording can be set either of two ways.

4.5 ALARM CONFIGURATION
Alarm configuration allows the DVR to begin recording based on input from other remote
sensors such as infrared motion detectors or contact alarms which are connected to it.
To Record allows you to determine which cameras will begin recording. Cameras can
be set to record individually, in blocks, or all cameras can be activated.
To PTZ activates preset, cruise or track functions on selected Pan-Tilt-Zoom
cameras. Depending on your model of PTZ camera, one of up to 128 pre-set actions
can be engaged. Check your camera’s manual for details.
There are five submenus; Sensor, Motion, Video Loss, Other, and Alarm Out.
SENSOR
In this window you can setup optional external sensors to cause the DVR to begin recording.
There are three tabs in this window: Basic, Alarm Handling and Schedule.
Basic Tab
Schedule Tab
Set by default to always on, the schedule can be altered in the same manner as that used in
Schedule in SECTION 4.4.
CHAPTER 4 MAIN MENU SETUP
This allows you to enable the input from
attached sensors. You can also identify the
sensors by name for ease in determining
location.
Set the alarm type according to whether the
alarm is NO (Normally Open) or NC (Normally
Closed). See your alarm’s manual for details.
PICTURE 4-27
MOTION
Motion Tab
Alarms can be individually configured or
globally set using the All button.
As with the Alarm function above, it incorporates hold time and can trigger procedures.
PICTURE 4-24
Alarm Handling Tab
Configure how you want the DVR to handle
the input from an activated alarm. Each
sensor input can be set to launch individual
sequences of action or they may be globally
set through the All button to have the same
results.
Hold Time: determines the time allowed
between consecutive alarm events.
If the alarm is triggered again within
this time, it will be treated as a single
event and the DVR will continue
recording before stopping – unless,
of course, a subsequent alarm is
activated within the hold time.
In the Trigger setting, you can set multiple
channels to record when motion is detected
by a camera that has been set to activate
upon motion detection.
For example: If Camera 1 detects motion,
you can have it trigger Cameras 2 and 3 to
begin recording as well.
PICTURE 4-25
36
Alarm allows you to set whether a
buzzer will sound, which camera (if
any) will display in full screen mode,
whether an e-mail will be sent and
whether a signal will be sent via the
ALARM OUT port.
PICTURE 4-28
In addition, the user can set the sensitivity of certain areas within the field of view by selecting
the Area setting for the respective camera.
Specific areas can be made sensitive by
applying a blue grid to the desired section of
the screen. The blue grid can be applied to
the entire screen – signifying that the entire
field of view is sensitive - by clicking on
the star button. The trash can button will
remove the grid completely. Click and drag
with the mouse on the screen to draw or
erase the grid in select areas.

Schedule Tab
This is also set to be on all the time by default and it can be adjusted in the same manner as
the Schedule configuration in SECTION 4.4.
PICTURE 4-34
Schedule Tab
The default setting is for the ALARM OUT to be active all the time, but this can be changed
to meet your particular requirements in a similar manner to Schedule in SECTION 4.4.
PICTURE 4-31
VIDEO LOSS
Buzzer Tab
In the event that signal is lost by one camera, others can be activated to record while
additional devices can also be triggered.
As with the Alarm Out hold time, the internal buzzer can be enabled and given a hold time.
Like the Trigger tab in the Alarm Handling
section of the Sensor menu, you can select
the events that you wish to occur in the
event that a video input is lost. Both Alarms
and PTZ events can be scheduled as in the
Sensor menu above.
PICTURE 4-32
OTHER ALARM
In this menu you can set the DVR to alert you to a full Hard Drive, IP Conflict on the network or
a Disconnection.
You can set the response as well as at what
threshold of remaining disk space you wish to
be alerted.

4.6 NETWORK CONFIGURATION
Definitions and descriptions of network configuration:
The Network Configuration window is used to control how your DVR works in a networked
environment. This section offers a brief overview of how to set up your DVR so that it can be
remotely monitored from another computer on your network, over the Internet or from mobile
wireless devices. Full, in-depth instructions on the functions and settings available in this
window are presented in the Remote Monitoring Guide which is on the disk that came
with your system or which can be downloaded from our website at www.Q-See.com. The four
tabs in this window are Network, Sub-Stream, Email and Other Settings. If you will only
be monitoring the DVR from another computer on your network, you will only need to use the
first three tabs.

the IP address when entering it into the Internet Explorer window. For example,
if the port is now 82, then you will need to enter http://192.168.0.25:82
Optain IP Address Automatically – Clicking this box will obtain the IP address, subnet mask,
and gateway IP from the router.
PPPOE – Selecting this enables Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet (PPPoE) which allows
you to directly connect your DVR to the Internet through your modem. Do not use this
unless required by your Internet Service Provider (ISP) or if you are already connected
to a router. Contact your ISP for your account information including user name and
password. The TEST button will verify that your information is correct.
The substream is the data that is sent to remote monitoring devices. Due to bandwidth
concerns, these data streams are generally smaller than those sent directly to the DVR itself.
These streams run in parallel with the main stream sent to the hard drive and they do not
affect each other.
Substream settings are configured in the
same manner as that used for the primary
stream settings in the Record Bitrate
tab in Section 4.3 Certain settings will be
grayed out and cannot be changed due to
throughput concerns. The definitions are
repeated for your convenience:

CHAPTER 4 MAIN MENU SETUP
It is important that your DVR is connected to your network router and that the router is
powered on before proceeding.
Parameter
Meijer.com
Email Tab
Other Settings
This tab allows you to set how your DVR will send out e-mail alerts. You will be able to send
e-mail alerts to three addresses.
Commercial ISPs provide their customers with dynamic addresses (IP numbers). These
numbers can change from time to time depending upon your service provider. Doing so can
cause you to lose the ability to remotely access your DVR from your mobile phone or other
out-of-network device. To prevent this from happening, we recommend using a Dynamic
Domain Name Service (DDNS). This will give you a domain name that can be linked to your IP
address and will automatically – and invisibly – forward remote connections to your network
when the IP address changes.
If you do not have your own e-mail system, please set up a free account which the DVR can
use to send out alerts before proceeding.
For the example below, we will use Gmail. The settings can be found under Options when
logged into your Gmail account.
Clicking on any of the fields will bring up the virtual keyboard allowing you to enter the data.
The virtual keyboard is capable of handling upper and lower case letters as well as numbers
and symbols. Click the ENTER button to enter your input or ESC to exit the field without
applying any changes.
Q-See offers DDNS for free at MyQ-See.com. Create a domain name, user name and
password before proceeding. DynDNS.com also offers a similar free service. This is covered
in-depth in the Remote Monitoring Guide.
Select the box in the DDNS field to enable
DDNS. You will then enter the user name,
domain name and password you created into
the appropriate fields. You can also select the
interval in days at which the DDNS checks to
see whether your IP address has changed.
Intervals range from every 30 minutes to once
a day.

CHAPTER 4 MAIN MENU SETUP
NOTE! Depending upon your settings, the system can generate a lot of e-mail
alerts. For that reason, we recommend setting up a dedicated e-mail address
specifically for the system to send alert notices. If you do not have your own
e-mail system (such as a corporate mail server) you should consider using a
free e-mail provider. However, because many free e-mail services allow only
a limited amount of e-mail traffic we specifically recommend using Google’s
Gmail service with its higher limit. Similarly, you will want the alert e-mails to go to a different
account than the one sending them. This will ease your management of these alerts.

6.4 UPGRADE
This window will display firmware updates that are loaded on a USB flash drive in the front
USB port.
HARD DISK DRIVE
CHAPTER 7
Your DVR uses a standard SATA (Serial Advanced Technology Attachment) hard disk
drive and will support drives up to 2TB (terabytes). These drives are the current industry
standard and may be purchased wherever computer parts are sold. Depending on where
you purchased your DVR, your hard drive may already be installed. But, we recognize that
you may wish to upgrade or replace your drive in the future so this DVR is designed to make
installation and replacement easy for the average user. A 5400RPM drive will work but a
7200RPM drive is recommended for optimal performance.
It should be noted that while this is the only user-serviceable part within the case besides the
battery and you will not void your warranty by installing or upgrading your hard disk drive, care
must be taken to avoid damage to the other components within the case.
WARNING! ELECTRIC SHOCK RISK!
The DVR MUST be unplugged from all power sources as well as from
the cameras before opening the case. Failure to do so can result in
damage to the DVR or its components as well as injury or death.
PICTURE 6-10
7.1 INSTALLATION/REMOVAL
The firmware download should be loaded onto an empty USB flash drive from the
downloading computer and then transferred to the DVR using the front USB port.
It is strongly advised against opening the case when atmospheric conditions present the risk
of static discharge which can damage electronic components.
NOTE! While a Macintosh computer can read and write to a drive in the
FAT32 format, it cannot reformat a USB flash drive to that standard. We
suggest that you use a PC to reformat your USB flash drive to FAT32 and it is
recommended that you download firmware updates on a PC. Beginning with
version 3.1.71, you can use the Upgrade feature in the Remote Monitoring
software (see Section 2.5 of the Remote Monitoring Guide) to upgrade
without a USB flash drive.
WARNING! Updating the firmware incorrectly or using the wrong update
can permanently damage the chipset on the DVR and render it unusable.
Updates are written to either resolve issues or add features to the DVR. If you
are not experiencing performance issues or do not need a feature added by
the update, we recommend not running the update.
Whether installing the drive for the first time or removing the old one to install a new one, the
steps are largely the same:
STEP 1. Disconnect the DVR from the power source as well as any other connections.
STEP 2. Remove screws (the number will vary depending on your model) from the side
and rear of your DVR as indicated in Picture 7-1

6.6 SHUT DOWN
This is a “soft power down” of the DVR.
WARNING! It is vital that the DVR be instructed to shut down using the Shut
Down menu option prior to unplugging the device in order to avoid damaging
the firmware or hard drive itself.

CHAPTER 7 HARD DISK DRIVE
Firmware upgrades are available from Q-See at www.Q-See.com and may be found by
looking up your specific model. Firmware should only be upgraded to fix a specific problem or
add features as ongoing development may result in features being removed.
Meijer.com
STEP 4. Connect the power and data
cables. Press firmly, but do not
force them onto the pins or you may
damage them. The connectors are
“keyed” to ensure they are connected
in the proper position.
7.2 CALCULATING THE RECORDING CAPACITY OF A HARD DISK DRIVE
While the physical data capacity of a hard drive is fixed, how much video you can record upon
it depends on your recording configurations. Higher quality recordings will take up more space
on the drive and setting the DVR to record for more frequently will fill it up more rapidly.
HARD DRIVE
To determine the optimal capacity for your purposes, the chart below to estimate the size of
hard drive that you’ll need.
STEP 5. Attach hard drive to the base of
the DVR with screws using the four
mounting holes.
STEP 6. Replace the DVR cover and
secure.

CHAPTER 7 HARD DISK DRIVE
PAL
7.5
VIDEO
QUALITY
The formula for calculating the required disk space is:
Total Recording Capacity = Used space per hour (MB/h) x Recording time (hour) x
number of channels
Example: A customer is using the NTSC format (30 frames per second), CIF resolution
with video quality set to Lowest and a total of 16 Channels. He wants the unit to record
continuously for a month. Therefore, the calculation will look like this:
56(MB/h), x 24 (hours/day) x 30 (days) x 16 (channels) = 645,120MB or 650GB
Installing a 750GB SATA hard drive should provide enough space for one month’s continuous
recording time at those settings.
