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.
v
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.
vi
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.

Connecting Cameras
Connecting Cameras
Before you mount the cameras, test to ensure the cameras have no problems. Plan where
you will route the wiring for the camera, and where you will aim the camera.
Installation Tips
• Mount the camera where the lenses are away from direct and intense sunlight.
• Plan your cable wiring so that it does not interfere with power lines or telephone lines.
• Ensure that the camera wiring is not exposed, or easily cut.
• Adjust the camera angle so that it covers an area with high traffic.
• In "high-risk" locations, have multiple cameras point in the same area. This provides camera
redundancy if a camera malfunctions, or if a vandal attempts to damage the camera.
• Mount the camera in an area that is visible, but out of reach.

Appendix D: What is port forwarding?
Appendix D: What is port forwarding?
You need to enable port forwarding on your router to allow for external communications
with your system for the following port:
• 80 (HTTP port)
• 9000 (Media Port)
• 1025 (Mobile Connectivity 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

Internal Network
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).

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.
106
Appendix E: Internet Setup Wizard (PC only)
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.
• Consult your router’s owner’s manual for details
on configuring DMZ settings.
Locating your Router IP - The Status Page
The "Status Page" of a router normally includes the router’s
vital information such as the IP address.
EXAMPLE
The IP information is
normally under a
header called "WAN" or
"Internet Port". Each
router has different
terminology.

Appendix F: Assigning A Static IP To Your DVR
Appendix F: Assigning A Static IP To Your DVR
When connecting to your DVR through a local area network (LAN), you have the option of
connecting to your system by entering the local IP of the DVR in a web browser. The local IP of
your DVR is like your home’s address. If someone wants to visit you, they need to know your home
address. Similarly, the local IP of your DVR is your DVR’s address.
The problem arises when the local IP address of the DVR changes. Imagine moving every three
months—nobody would ever be able to find you. To solve this problem, we can assign a fixed IP
address—also known as a static IP address—so that the local IP of your DVR will never change.
What’s the difference between DHCP and Static IPs?
DHCP
DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) allows your router to automatically assign an IP
address to devices that are connected to it. DHCP is a convenient method for connected devices
on your router to have an IP address immediately. This allows devices connected to your router to
work right away on the network.
For example, your router assigns an IP address to your laptop, your desktop, and your DVR.
Example
192.168.0.81
Router
192.168.0.82
192.168.0.83
Each time the router restarts (due to power failure etc.), there is no guarantee that the router will
assign the same IP address to your laptop, desktop or your DVR. The router may assign a new
IP address to all of the devices connected to it. This can be a problem if you want to connect to
your DVR locally, since the IP address of the DVR has changed.
108
Appendix F: Assigning A Static IP To Your DVR
Static IPs
Setting a static IP on the router tells the router to reserve an IP address to a particular device. The
static IP number is saved onto the router, and remains saved even if the router is powered off.
Likewise, a static IP address must also be specified in your DVR so that even if your DVR turns off,
the IP address of the DVR remains the same. The static IP address must be assigned in the router
and DVR. The end result is that you can power on and off the router and DVR, and the router will
always assign the same IP address to the DVR.
Setting up a static IP
Creating a static IP must be done on both the router and DVR.
NOTE: These are guidelines on how to create a static IP. Refer to the DVR & Router’s owner’s
manual for details.
To create a static IP on the DVR:
1. Disable DHCP on the DVR.
2. Assign the designated local IP address of the DVR.
To create a static IP on the router:
1. Write down the MAC address of your DVR.
2. In the "DHCP Reservation List", enter the DVR’s MAC address, and the desired IP that you
wish to reserve.
NOTE: The terminology varies between routers. "DHCP Reservation List" is an example only.
Consult your router’s user’s manual for details.
Scenario Example
NOTE: The following scenario example is based on the Lorex Edge series (LH300 series) DVR,
and the Trendnet TEW-652BRP router. The instructions below are for reference only.
Step 1 of 2: Enter the desired static IP address in the DVR
1. Open the LAN menu (Main Menu >LAN).
2. Beside IP, Enter the desired IP address. This IP address must be in the range specified by
your router.
3. Beside DHCP Enable, Disable DHCP. Right-click to save your settings.
Enter desired IP address
Disable DHCP
109
Appendix F: Assigning A Static IP To Your DVR
About IP Ranges
It is recommended to set the static IP address below the scope of your router. For example, if the
router assigns an address ending between 100-254, choose an address ending between 2-99.
Step 2 of 2: Enter the desired static IP address in the router
Prerequisites:
• Obtain the DVR’s MAC address
To enter a static IP into the router:
1. Under the main menu, click on LAN & DHCP Server.
2. Configure the following:
• Static DHCP: Select Enabled and then click Apply.
• Name: Enter the desired name of your device
• IP Address: Enter the IP address that you wish to make static. This IP address must be the
same address specified in the DVR.
• MAC Address: Enter the MAC address of your DVR.
Select Enabled
Add
Enter DVR name, IP
address and
Mac address
3. Click Add.
• The DVR info appears in the Static DHCP list.
Once the DVR has been added to the Static DHCP list, you have successfully created a static IP
address for your system.

Appendix N: Daylight Saving Time on your DVR
Appendix N: Daylight Saving Time on your DVR
You may have to adjust your system’s time during daylight saving months. The table below
illustrates the DVR’s that automatically adjust to Daylight Saving Time (DST), and DVRs that must
have their system time manually adjusted.
NOTE: You must configure and enable automatic DST on your DVR even if
your system supports the feature.
Why is the DVR timestamp important?
Your DVR’s time stamp is crucial when submitting surveillance video as court evidence. It is highly
recommended to double-check that your system has the proper time, even if your system
supports automatic DST adjustments.
When should I adjust my system clock?
In North America, most cities observe DST.
• In March: the clock moves one hour forward
• In November: the clock moves one hour backward

Troubleshooting the video display
Troubleshooting the video display
When connected to a VGA monitor, why can’t I see a mouse cursor, or
access the system menus by using the front panel controls of the DVR?
Solution 1
You may have accidently switched the system output by pressing the 0 button on the
remote; or the DVR did not properly detect the VGA monitor.
To switch back to VGA mode:
1
Turn on the DVR. Wait for it to boot into the main window.
2
Press the 0 (zero) button on the remote three times.
Pressing the 0 (zero) button on the remote three times changes the DVR from SPOT OUT
mode to VGA mode. After the DVR is in VGA mode, you will be able to see your mouse, and
have access to the menu.
Solution 2
The DVR may not have correctly detected your VGA monitor because of a loose connection.
Perform the following:
1
Unpower the DVR.
2
Power down and re-connect the VGA monitor to the DVR. Ensure that the connection is firm.
3
Turn on the monitor.
4
Turn on the DVR. Wait for it to boot into the main window.
NOTE: After you re-connect the VGA cable between the monitor and DVR, ensure that you
first turn on the monitor, and then turn on the DVR last. This allows the DVR to
auto-detect the connected VGA monitor.
NOTE: If you still cannot see the mouse cursor, or access the menu, press the 0 (zero) button
on the remote control three times.

Obtaining Service
The purchaser may have other rights under state, provincial, or federal laws and

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

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.
