Chapter 1 Overview

Chapter 2 Quick Overview
2.1 HDD Installation
Your DVR comes with a hard drive already installed. If you plan to upgrade in
the future, select a SATA type interface. We recommend Seagate brand hard
drives designed for surveillance use. Remember to always format a new
hard drive after it is installed in your machine.
2.2 Boot
After all camera and monitor connections have been made, connect the
12VDC 5A power adapter to the DC 12V socket on the back panel, and press
the power button on the front panel. The power indicator will light, and the
monitor will display our company’s logo for approximately 25 seconds while
the system initializes. If the record mode is set to begin “When powered up”
the “REC” indicator will turn on to indicate the system is working normally. A
red “H” icon on the screen indicates a potential problem with the hard drive’s
connections, or a need for the drive to be formatted.

number in the camera and in the DVR the same as the DVR’s channel number
that the camera is attached to. Following this method makes it easier to
remember the camera’s address.
3.7.7 Network setup
MAIN MENU / ADVANCED / NETWORK
Before using your DVR on a network, there are three things that you should
know about the type of connection you are using.
Item 1 – Do you have a Static or Dynamic WAN IP address from your ISP
(Internet Service Provider)?
A Static IP address does not change, it is
provided by your ISP for a minimal extra charge.
You can see your WAN IP
address displayed and test your internet connection speed by going to:
29
16-channel H.264 DVR User Manual
http://www.security-labs.com/ip.shtml
Item 2 – Are you installing the DVR on a LAN connection (behind a router)
or on a WAN (Internet) connection (direct to modem)?
Glossary of terms:
LAN – Local Area Network
ISP – Internet Service Provider
WAN – Wide Area Network (Internet)
ADSL (or DSL) – Asymmetric Digital
Subscriber Line
DHCP – Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol
DNS- Domain Name System (supplied by your ISP)
DDNS – Dynamic Domain Name System
DMZ – An unprotected zone outside of your firewall
IP ADDRESS – A four segment number with up to three digits per segment (i.e.
173.15.11.129) assigned to a location like your home via the internet (WAN)
and then typically another number (i.e. 192.168.1.50) to your DVR from a local
network (LAN) inside your home.
A broadband modem (such as DSL or Cable) will normally connect to a router.
Your router may have both wired and wireless features. Typically, computers
and your DVR connect to the ports (RJ45 type jacks) on the back of the router.
Please be sure your DVR is connected to your router or modem with the
supplied RJ45 type patch cable before proceeding
MAIN MENU / ADVANCED / NETWORK
TYPE: Three options: STATIC, DHCP, and PPPOE
30
16-channel H.264 DVR User Manual
STATIC : Use this option when entering a known IP address manually.
A
static IP address (one that never changes) can be supplied by your internet
service provider, and offers the most reliable method of contacting your DVR
from the internet.
When connecting to router, log in to its setup or
administrator settings page to view the Subnet Mask, Gateway, and DNS
numbers for your network.
Enter these same numbers into the boxes
of the menu above.
Note: There are (2) IP addresses to remember; the local area network (LAN)
IP address (the one for the DVR) and the wide area network (WAN) or Internet
Address (the one to your Modem). The LAN address is used to operate your
DVR from computers inside your network (at home or business).
The WAN
address is used to operate your DVR from the internet (remote locations).
DHCP: The DHCP option is the easiest to use for the DVR’s network
connection.
An IP address will be assigned by the router or modem
automatically after the DVR is connected to the router or modem. The router
or modem will act as a DHCP host and assign an open local IP address to the DVR.
This is perhaps the easiest way to assign an IP address to your DVR, but may make it
harder to contact via the internet later unless you plan to use a DDNS service.
PPPOE: If you have only one DVR connected to an ADSL line, you can use this mode.
After entering the broadband user name and password, click “APPLY” and the
system will restart. The DVR will establish a network connection in the PPPOE
mode automatically. After successful connection, the IP on the IP address will
be modified to the acquired dynamic WAN IP address automatically.
Media port: The port number used in the private protocol communication
31
16-channel H.264 DVR User Manual
between the DVR and your PC. The default port is 9000. If this port is
occupied by any other service on your PC, please change the number to an
unused port.
WEB port: The http port is 80 by default. If the administrator modifies the
WEB port to any other port, such as 88, please add the IP the port number to
the end of the IP address (i.e. “http://192.168.1.19:88” ) in the address bar
when accessing the DVR via Internet Explorer.
Subnet mask: Is filled in automatically when using the DHCP mode. The
default setting is 255.255.255.000
Gateway: The gateway is an address that directs devices to the WAN
(internet). The gateway is filled in automatically when using the DHCP mode.
The most common manual entry method is to keep the first three sets of
numbers the same as your IP address, and the last set of numbers as “001”.
The gateway address for your local network can be found on the administrator
settings home page for your router.
DNS: The Dynamic Name Server address for your internet connection can
also be found on the administrator settings page of your router. Make sure
this number is set correctly to avoid problems with your DVR being able to
send e-mail alerts.
UPNP: Universal Plug ‘N Play can expedite the process of seeking and
assigning an available IP address and port number if the feature is also
available and activated on your router.
DDNS Setup
Using a Static IP address from your ISP is a preferred method of operation.
If
you are only able to get a Dynamic IP address (one that changes periodically),
you may consider using a DDNS provider.
DDNS (Dynamic Domain Name Service) is an internet service which allows
you to associate the IP address of your DVR with a name like
www.myDVR.com. Some companies such as www.dyndns.org
provide this
service free of charge. To use the service you must create an account with a
DNS service. You may register at DDNS Server: http://www.dyndns.org.

3.9 Improving Internet Access
Port Forwarding
Port Forwarding is used to direct inbound traffic to the appropriate devices on
a network.
In this case, a PC from a remote location can be easily directed to
your DVR’s login page.
Port forwarding procedures showing a popular brand router’s menus:
1) Enter the IP address of your router into the address bar of your web
browser.
2) Log into the router.
37
16-channel H.264 DVR User Manual
Click “OK” to enter the main screen of the router, as shown below:
Click Applications& Gaming, as shown below:
38
16-channel H.264 DVR User Manual
Fill in the IP and the port number in the corresponding boxes, and select
“Both” in [Protocol]. In this case, 80 stands for the WEB port, 9000 for the
media port and 6000 for the mobile phone port.
DMZ Setting
Your router may also contain a feature called DMZ (demilitarized zone).
Entering the LAN IP address of your DVR in the DMZ places your DVR outside
of the router’s firewall, and allows access to the DVR with less security
restrictions normally required for a PC.
