2 INSTALLATION
2.1 VIDEO INPUTS/OUTPUTS INSTALLATION
Cameras have to be cabled with 75 Ohm video cable, e.g. RG-59, RG-12 and suitable BNC plugs.
Due to inappropriate absorbability, 50 Ohm coax cable (e.g. RG58), antenna cable and further types of
coax cable are not suitable.
11
All connected video sources must provide a 1 Vpp NTSC/EIA or PAL/CCIR standard video signal
(depending on DVR version PAL / NTSC).
When interconnecting transmission lines (twisted pair, fibre optics, radio) to the video inputs, make sure all
receivers are accurately calibrated.
The Main monitor can be connected to BNC, Composite, or VGA monitor output.
NOTE: VGA monitor must support 800x600@60Hz resolution.
For local DVR operation, MAIN monitor connection is required. Call monitor connection is optional.
12
2.2 AUDIO INSTALLATION
The DVRs provide 16/8 audio inputs and 1 audio output.
The inputs are designed for max. 1 Vpp @ 20 KOhm input.
The installation has to be effected with audio coax cable and RCA plugs.
The output provides a max. 1 Vpp @ 20 KOhm output line audio signal and may be connected to e.g. a
monitor‘s audio input. The direct connection of (passive) speakers is not supported.
ATTENTION: The direct connection of a non-amplified microphone is not supported (a microphone
amplifier is required).
AUDIO RECORDING FUNCTIONALITY:
Audio recording is activated / deactivated in the RECORD menu (chapter 5.4.1) for all channels.
Audio of all channels is always recorded together with (each) video and is independent of the image
recording rate.
During playback/live, use the JOG to select camera and press ENTER to turn audio ON or OFF.
13
2.3 ALARM / CONTROL CONTACTS INSTALLATION
The alarm inputs can be used for recording start or recording rate adjustment. Furthermore, alarm reactions
such as camera switching to monitors, buzzer, e-mail and network alarm are available. 4 alarm output
relays can be switched if required.
Additionally the DVR provides 4 x TTL - level control outputs with similar functionality as the relay outputs.
2.3.1
Alarm Input Contacts
EPARA8 provides 8 alarm inputs, EPARA16 provides 16. All inputs are programmable N.O. (Normal Open)
or N.C. (Normal Closed)
Inputs have to be switched by dry contacts.
Alarm input with N.O. (Normal Open) contact

2.4 RS-485 keyboard / PTZ Installation
All functions can be remote-controlled by the EKB-500 universal keyboard. Using the EEPbus protocol,
digital video recorders, keyboards and speed domes can be installed on one single RS-485 bus. One
system can comprise up to 8 keyboards.
15
2.4.1
General RS-485 bus installation
The EKB-500 keyboard uses an RS-485 simplex wiring; the signal is transferred via a single twisted pair
line. CAT5 network cable is recommended, UPT version (unshielded) is sufficient for normal application. A
shielded cable should be used if the installed cables are expected to be highly susceptible to interferences.
The number of devices installed in one bus is limited to 32, and the maximum cable length is 1200m. Both
of these can be expanded using a signal distributor (see below).
Both the first and the last device in series should be terminated with 120 Ohm resistance in order to
minimize line reflections.
RS-485 bus serial wiring
Cable length from box to device („Stubs“) has to be limited to 2m using connector boxes.
RS-485 bus serial wiring with connector boxes and connection cable
A direct RS-485 bus star wiring is not supported unless using a signal distributor (see below).
Improper RS-485 bus star wiring
An RS-485 signal distributor may be used to use a star wiring configuration.
Star wiring with RS-485 signal distributor
16
An RS-485 distributor can also be used to increase the maximum number of devices on the bus as well as
the total range. Each distributor output provides another RS-485 bus. This allows each output to extend an
additional 1200m, and it also enables the additional connection of 31 further devices to each output (the
output itself represents one device).
The maximum system expandability depends on the RS-485 address range of the installed devices.
System expansion with RS-485 signal distributor
ATTENTION: Most signal distributors are unidirectional! This means that the signal only flows from the
input towards the outputs. Therefore, e.g. the interconnection of several keyboards is not possible with
these types of signal distributor!
2.4.2
RS-485 socket pin assignment
The following RS485 pin assignment as follow:
2.4.3
EKB-500 connection with network patch cable
For a simple, short distance installation, recorder and keyboard can directly be connected using a standard
CAT5 network cable (patch cable, uncrossed!).
2.4.4
EKB-500 connection to several DVRs
For long distance installations connecting several DVRs, please use signal distributor to connect
For further details on keyboard connection, please refer to the EKB-500 manual.
RS-485 port communication settings are configured in the I/O CONTROL menu (

before the DVR’s can connect to the network. There are two basic types of connection:
2.7.1
Direct PC Connection through Crossover Network Cable
The point-to-point connection of DVR and PC requires a crossover (crossed) network cable. This type of
connection is ONLY used for direct connection to a single PC. Make sure that the PC is equipped with a
10/100/1000 Mbps compatible network connection.

6 Networking Overview
This chapter will give you a basic instruction on how to set up the DVR for network connection. It is highly
recommended that you have a working knowledge of what a network is and how it works. This will be
helpful in completing the networking process.
6.1 Introduction to TCP/IP
TCP/IP is the group of protocols used by the Internet and most Local Area Networks (LANs) throughout the
world. In TCP/IP, every computer or other communications device that is connected to the network has a
unique IP address. By doing this you are giving your device a unique address similar to the address of your
house. An IP address is composed of four octets (numbers in the range of 0 to 255) separated by decimal
points. The IP address is used to uniquely identify a host or computer on the LAN. For example, one
computer on a network could have an IP address of 192.168.1.127.
You should never give two or more devices the same exact IP address, but the first three octets of an IP
address should be the same for all computers in the local area network. For example, if a total of 253
computers exist in a single LAN, the IP addresses could be assigned starting with 192.168.1.x, where x
represents a number in the range of 2 to 254.
6.2 Subnet Masks
Each host in a LAN has a subnet mask. The subnet mask is a set of octets that is used to determine which
LAN or class it belongs to. The number 255 is usually used to represent the network address portion of the
IP address and a zero is placed at the end to identify the host portion of the address. Basically the subnet
mask can be compared to the city you live in for your home address, but in this case you are stating the
network you belong too.
6.3 Gateway Address
Each host in a LAN has a gateway. A gateway address is composed of four octets separated by decimal
points. The gateway address is used to uniquely identify the main host or computer on the LAN that
assigns the IP addresses to your network (usually a router). This is comparable to the zip code of your
address.
92
6.4 Virtual Ports
A port number represents a "channel" or entryway for network communications. Port numbers allow
different applications on the same computer to utilize network resources without interfering with each other.
Port numbers most commonly appear in network programming, particularly socket programming.
Sometimes, though, port numbers are made visible to the casual user. For example, some websites on the
Internet use a URL like the following:
http://www.fakeaddress.com:8100/
In this example, the number 8100 refers to the port number used by the browser to connect to the web
server. The standard port number used by web sites is 80, so this number does not need to be included
with the URL (although it can be). In IP networking, port numbers can theoretically range from 0 to 65535.
Most popular network applications, though, use port numbers at the lower end of the range (such as 80 for
HTTP). Ports are similar to doors and windows of your house, with port 80 acting as the front door. If these
are not open you could not enter the house. This is the same case with ports on a network. If the ports for a
specific IP address are not open then you could not gain access to that IP address.
Note: The term port also refers to several other aspects of network technology. A port can refer to
Ethernet connection points, such as those on a hub, switch, or router. The term port is also used to
refer to a physical connection point for peripheral devices such as serial, parallel, and USB ports.
6.5 Pre-Installation
Before beginning the installation, please answer the following questions:
Do you have Hi-speed Internet?
______________
There are many types of high speed Internet available. The most common ones are T1, Cable, and
DSL (in order of speed). The DVR is not compatible with a dial-up connection.
Note: EverFocus suggests having a minimum upload speed of 256KBps. This can be
addressed by your Internet Service Provider.
What type of modem/router do you have?
______________
Modem/router model name/ #
The modem/router was either installed by your Internet service provider or purchased by you to
establish a connection to the Internet. A router assigns different internal IP addresses to local
computers; this allows multiple computers to access the Internet through the same external IP
address.
93
Do you have a static IP address?
______________
A Static IP address means you use the same IP address every time you connect to the Internet.
With a static IP address, other Internet users always know the address of your location and can
easily connect with it. This makes it much simpler to host a website, email server, or other type of
server connection. Everfocus suggests using a static IP address. If this is not available, you will
need to use a dynamic IP address. This is explained below.
Do you have a dynamic IP address?
______________
A Dynamic IP address means your IP address changes each time you connect to the Internet. We
recommend asking your Internet service provider for a Static IP address. If this is not a possibility,
you may use the DDNS feature of the DVR. DDNS stands for Dynamic Domain Name Server, a
service that provides a central database where IP information can be stored and retrieved. It allows
those using a dynamic IP address to be registered centrally so users can connect to it by name.
See Chapter 8 for details on using EverFocus DDNS.
What type of DVR are you installing?
______________
Everfocus EDR series: EDR 410, 810, 920, 1620, 1640, or 1680
Everfocus EDVR series: EDVR 4D1, 9D1, 16D1, 16D3
Everfocus ECOR series: ECOR 4, 8
6.6 What is your Network Setup?
Everfocus DVR’s can operate using one of three types of networking connections.
1. Simple One to One Connection: A simple one to one connection is the simplest type of network
connection. It uses a cross-over cable to make a direct connection from one computer to another
(or in this case a computer to a DVR).
2. Direct High Speed Modem Connection: A direct modem connection uses a standard network cable
to connect the modem directly to a computer (or in this case a modem to the DVR). This type of
connection only covers single-port modems. For a combination modem/router, use the setup
described below.
3. Router or LAN Connection – A local area network connection requires either a router or a preexisting LAN connection. This is the most common type of connection. A router allows multiple
computers and DVR’s to access each other as well as the Internet. It assigns different internal IP
addresses to the computers.
94
6.7 Simple One to One Connection
Crossover Ethernet Cable Pin outs:
The Figure below shows the pin configurations for a cross-over cable.
Connection Procedure:
The First step is to purchase or make a cross-over cable. We recommend purchasing one if you
have never made a cross-over cable. Please remember you can not use a straight through network
cable for this application
Once you have a cross-over cable plug one end into the LAN port on the back of the DVR and the
other into the network card on the back of the computer.
Log into the EverFocus DVR menu and go to the Network Setting Menu.
You must use the Static IP option for this type of connection.
95
Assign an IP of 192.168.001.003, a Subnet Mask of 255.255.255.000, and a Gateway of
192.168.001.001. You can ignore DNS Server.
The next step is to set the computer’s network settings to match those of the DVR. You will need
Administrator privileges on your Windows machine to do this.
To assign a fixed IP address in Windows 2000/XP.
96
97
98
Click on the option that says “Use the following IP address”
Assign an IP address of 192.168.1.2, a Subnet Mask of 255.255.255.0, and a Default Gateway of
192.168.1.1, then click OK.
Restart both the computer and the DVR.
To access the DVR from the computer, simply open Internet Explorer and in the address bar type:
http://192.168.1.3
99
6.8 Direct High Speed Modem Connection
Straight Through Ethernet Cable Pin outs:
The Figure below shows the pin configurations for a straight cable.
Connection Procedure:
The first step is to purchase or make a straight through cable. We recommend purchasing one if
you have never made a straight through cable. Please remember you can not use a cross-over
network cable for this application
100
Once you have a straight through cable plug one end into the LAN port on the back of the recorder
and the other into the high speed modem.
Log into the EverFocus DVR menu and go to the Network Setting Menu.
Input the Static IP address, the Subnet Mask, and the Gateway that you obtained from the internet
service provider.
Note: If you have a dynamic IP address, you can set the DVR to DHCP to automatically detect
the network settings settings. Therefore, it can use a dynamic IP address.
Exit from the DVR’s Menu to save the settings.
To access the DVR from a computer, open Internet Explorer and in the address bar type:
http:// (IP address given by your internet service provider)
Note: When using this type of connection, only one device can be connected to the modem at
a time. You will need to use a computer at a different location to test the connection.
101
6.9 Router or LAN Connection
Straight Through Ethernet Cable Pin outs:
The Figure below shows the pin configurations for a straight cable.
Connection Procedure:
The First step is to purchase or make a straight through cable. We recommend purchasing one if
you have never made a straight through cable. Please remember you can not use a cross-over
network cable for this application
102
Once you have a straight through cable plug one end into the LAN port on the back of the recorder
and the other into the router.
Log into the EverFocus DVR menu and go to the Network Setting Menu.
To let the router automatically assign an address:
Set the Network Type to DHCP. Make sure to write down the IP address and the Gateway.
Exit from the Menu to save settings.
To manually assign an address:
Go to a computer connected on the same network as the DVR.
Click on the Start button and choose Run.
o If using Windows Vista, choose Search instead.
Type “command” and click on OK.
o In Vista, you will need to double-click on the “Command Prompt” file to open it..
In the DOS prompt, type “ipconfig” and press Enter.
The network information will be displayed on a screen similar to the one below.
o In Windows Vista, look for the information that says “IP v4”.
Take the values for Subnet Mask and Default Gateway and input them into the DVR; these
values should be exactly the same in both devices. However, you should change the last
103
number of the IP address. For example, if the IP address of the computer is 192.168.2.101, the
DVR’s IP address should be 192.168.002.050.
To access the DVR from a computer simply open Internet Explorer and in the address bar type:
http:// (IP address of the DVR)
Note: The DVR’s IP address will only work at the location of the DVR. To connect from a
different location over the Internet, see below.
To set DVR for Internet Connection through router
The next step is to open ports within your router. Log into the router using a PC and open the
following ports.
o Ports to open: 80, 1600
o If your Internet service provider blocks port 80, you can change it to a different port in the
DVR’s Network Menu Setup.
o If you are using a Linksys or D-Link router, see Chapter 9 for basic support on setting up
ports. For any other router, you will need to contact the manufacturer for support.
To access the DVR from a computer simply open Internet Explorer and in the address bar type:
http:// (the IP address given by your internet service provider)
Note: If you changed to a different port other than 80, you will need to include this at the
end of the IP address
Example: http://70.20.70.20:8100
If you have a Dynamic IP address and have opened the ports, go to the next chapter to setup
DDNS.

10 TROUBLESHOOTING
If you have problems with the system, run through the following checklist to see if you can solve the
problem.
The DVR will not go into record mode.
Bring up the DVR’s Menu and check under the Camera Menu. Verify that all connected cameras
are checked as “Installed” and that Record Mode is set to “Continuous”.
Check the Disk or Information Menus and verify that the internal hard drive is being detected.
The DVR displays no picture.
Make sure the monitor is connected to either the Video Out port or the VGA port. If the monitor
has multiple inputs, make sure it is on the correct display setting.
Check that the monitor cables are good.
Verify the recorder is getting the correct amount of power.
There is no display coming from one of the channels on the DVR.
In the DVR’s Camera Menu, make sure that all cameras are checked as “Installed” and
unchecked for “Covert”.
Verify that all cameras are connected on the “Input” row on the back of the DVR.
If there is still no picture, connect a working camera to the port that has no picture. If you get an
image, the problem is coming from the camera.
I cannot connect to the recorder via the internet.
Check that the DVR’s ports are forwarded correctly in the router.
Verify that your Internet Service Provider does not block any ports.
Make sure you are using the correct IP address given by the ISP, or, if you have a Dynamic IP,
check if the number has changed.
