alarm triggered the recording at 10:00, if you set the pre-record time as 5 seconds, the camera
records it at 9:59:55.
• Post-record: The time you set to record after the event or the scheduled time. For example, when
an alarm triggered the recording ends at 11:00, if you set the post-record time as 5 seconds, it
records till 11:00:05.
• Expired Time: The expired time is the longest time for a record file to be kept in the HDD, if the
deadline is reached, the file will be deleted. You can set the expired time to 0, and then the file
will not be deleted. The actual keeping time for the file should be determined by the capacity of
the HDD.

connected to a public network, you should use a NTP server that has a time synchronization function, such as the
server at the National Time Center (IP Address: 210.72.145.44). If the NVR is setup in a more customized network,
NTP software can be used to establish a NTP server used for time synchronization.

Figure 11. 15 More Settings Interface
120
User Manual of Network Video Recorder
3. Configure the remote alarm host, server port, HTTP port, multicast or RTSP port.
 Alarm Host IP/Port: With a remote alarm host configured, the device will send the alarm event or
exception message to the host when an alarm is triggered. The remote alarm host must have the CMS
(Client Management System) software installed.
The Alarm Host IP refers to the IP address of the remote PC on which the CMS (Client Management
System) software (e.g., NVMS7000) is installed, and the Alarm Host Port must be the same as the
alarm monitoring port configured in the software (default port is 7200).
 Multicast IP: The multicast can be configured to realize live view for more than the maximum number
of cameras through network. A multicast address spans the Class-D IP range of 224.0.0.0 to
239.255.255.255. It is recommended to use the IP address ranging from 239.252.0.0 to
239.255.255.255.
When adding a device to the CMS (Client Management System) software, the multicast address must
be the same as the device’s multicast IP.
 RTSP Port: The RTSP (Real Time Streaming Protocol) is a network control protocol designed for use in
entertainment and communications systems to control streaming media servers.
Enter the RTSP port in the text field of RTSP Port. The default RTSP port is 554, and you can change it
according to different requirements.
 Server Port and HTTP Port: Enter the Server Port and HTTP Port in the text fields. The default Server
Port is 8000 and the HTTP Port is 80, and you can change them according to different requirements.
The Server Port should be set to the range of 2000-65535 and it is used for remote client
software access. The HTTP port is used for remote IE access.
4. Click the Apply button to save and exit the interface.
11.2.6 Configuring HTTPS Port

11.2.8 Configuring NAT
Purpose:
Two ways are provided for port mapping to realize the remote access via the cross-segment network, UPnP™ and
manual mapping.

TM
UPnP
Universal Plug and Play (UPnP™) can permit the device seamlessly discover the presence of other network devices
on the network and establish functional network services for data sharing, communications, etc. You can use the
UPnP™ function to enable the fast connection of the device to the WAN via a router without port mapping.
Before you start:
If you want to enable the UPnP™ function of the device, you must enable the UPnP™ function of the router to
which your device is connected. When the network working mode of the device is set as multi-address, the
Default Route of the device should be in the same network segment as that of the LAN IP address of the router.
Steps:
1. Enter the Network Settings interface.
Menu > Configuration > Network
2. Select the NAT tab to enter the port mapping interface.
Figure 11. 21 UPnP™ Settings Interface

port, http port, RTSP port and https port respectively.
 You can use the default port No., or change it according to actual requirements.
 External Port indicates the port No. for port mapping in the router.
 The value of the RTSP port No. should be 554 or between 1024 and 65535, while the value of the
other ports should be between 1 and 65535 and the value must be different from each other. If
multiple devices are configured for the UPnP™ settings under the same router, the value of the
port No. for each device should be unique.

RAID
129
User Manual of Network Video Recorder
12.1 Configuring Array
Purpose:
RAID (redundant array of independent disks) is a storage technology that combines multiple disk drive
components into a logical unit. A RAID setup stores data over multiple hard disk drives to provide enough
redundancy so that data can be recovered if one disk fails. Data is distributed across the drives in one of several
ways called "RAID levels", depending on what level of redundancy and performance is required.
The NVR supports the disk array which is realized by the software, and RAID0, RAID1, RAID5 and RAID 10 are
supported. You can enable the RAID function on your demand.
Before you start:
Please install the HDD(s) properly and it is recommended to use the same enterprise-level HDDs (including model
and capacity) for array creation and configuration so as to maintain reliable and stable running of the disks.
Introduction:
If the RAID is enabled, the NVR can store the data (such as record, picture, log information) in the HDD only after
you have created the virtual disk or you have configured network HDD (refer to Chapter 11.2 Managing Network
HDD). Our device provides two ways for creating the virtual disk, including one-touch configuration and manual
configuration. The following flow chart shows the process of creating virtual disk.
Figure 12. 1 RAID Working Flow
12.1.1 Enable RAID
Purpose:
Perform the following steps to enable the RAID function, or the disk array cannot be created.

Menu > HDD > Advanced
Figure 12. 2 Enable RAID Interface
2. Check the checkbox of Enable RAID.
3. Click the Apply button to save the settings.
12.1.2 One-touch Configuration
Purpose:
Through one-touch configuration, you can quickly create the disk array. By default, the array type to be created is
RAID 5.
Before you start:
1. The RAID function should be enabled, please refer to the Chapter 10.1.1 for details.
2. As the default array type is RAID 5, please install at least 3 HDDs in you device.
Steps:
1. Enter the RAID configuration interface.
Menu > HDD > RAID

5. When the array configuration is completed, click OK button in the pop-up message box to finish the
settings.
6. You can click Array tab to view the information of the successfully created array.
By default, one-touch configuration creates an array and a virtual disk.

3. Edit the Array Name; set the RAID Level to RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 5 or RAID 10; select the Physical Disk that
you want to configure array.
 If you choose RAID 0, at least 2 HDDs must be installed.
 If you choose RAID 1, 2 HDDs need to be configured for RAID 1.
 If you choose RAID 5, at least 3 HDDs must be installed.
 If you choose RAID 10, the number of HDDs installed should be even in the range of 4~16.
4. Click OK button to create array.
If the number of HDDs you select is not compatible with the requirement of the RAID level, the error message
box will pop up.

Purpose:
133
User Manual of Network Video Recorder
The working status of array includes Functional, Degraded and Offline. By viewing the array status, you can take
immediate and proper maintenance for the disks so as to ensure the high security and reliability of the data
stored in the disk array.
When there is no disk loss in the array, the working status of array will change to Functional; when the number of
lost disks has exceeded the limit, the working status of array will change to Offline; in other conditions, the
working status is Degraded.
When the virtual disk is in Degraded status, you can restore it to Functional by array rebuilding.
Before you start:
Please make sure the hot spare disk is configured.
1.
Enter the Physical Disk Settings interface to configure the hot spare disk.
