1. Product Characteristics
„ Optimum Replacement for Time-lapse Recorder
Traditional Time-lapse Recorder is a mechanical device. It is very easy to break down after
long-term operation and it causes many problems such as: the overly used magnetic heads
which cause blurred image; tapes need to be changed often and manually; the recording time is
not long enough; the management of recorded tapes is complicated; inefficient when trying to
locate the needed data; recording a huge amount of useless images, etc.
ADR-6000 adopts digital recording technology. The quality of images will not deteriorate with
time. With its high compression rate, the storage time can last for months under normal
applications. The overwrite operation mode will overwrite the earliest data, and no more tape
change is required. Motion detection function will enable the recording only when there is
motion of the objective, and makes the system and data retrieval more efficient.
„ High Reliability
Normal PC digital surveillance system adopts the MS-Windows OS (Operating Systems). Such
kind of system is so often to crash. It usually makes a negative impression which digital
surveillance system is unreliable.
ADR-6000 adopts Embedded-Linux OS. Our advanced embedded technology condenses the
entire system into a tiny flash module, which makes the system more reliable. Even when the
power fails, the system will re-boot and return to normal operation in less than one minute.
„ Longer Recording Days
ADR-6000 adopts the advanced MPEG-4 compression to store the video images. It allows you
to record more data on the same capacity of hard disks.
„ Ease of Operation
Mouse clicking on the Graphical User Interface controls all the operations. No keyboard is
needed so that it is most suitable for the security guards and normal non-IT based users to use.

„ Multi-Function
Function of one set of ADR-6000 = Time-lapse Video Cassette Recorder + Multiplexer
processor + Motion Detection Processor
You can backup the data to CD-R/RW, remotely monitor the images and still recording the
current video data at the same time.

of this channel will not be zoomed and will not be marked in red frame even there is motion in
this channel.
3. If there is no other motion occurring, the current zoomed screen will be continually kept in
6
“ Motion Zooming Area”. If yes, the zoomed screen will be kept in “ Motion Zooming Area”
just for three seconds and will be replaced by the one from any channel waiting for zoomed after
three seconds. If there are more than one motion occurring at the same time, the zooming rule
will be as following,
a. The previous zooming channel will be the first priority for zooming again and others will be
marked in red frame to wait for zooming in after three seconds. However, the number of
continually zooming the same channel will be limited to three times. After three times, even
this channel occurs motion again, the motion zooming area will show the screen of other
channel. If the motion in one of the channels waiting for zooming and marked in red frame
disappears within three seconds waiting time, this channel will not be zoomed in and the red
frame will disappear.
b. If the previous zoomed channel does not have motion again, the first priority being zoomed is
the channel of which number is the smallest. For example, if channel #3 and channel #7 occur
motions at the same time, channel #3 will be zoomed firstly for three seconds and the screen
of channel #7 will be marked in red frame to wait for zoomed after three seconds

2-3 Storage Space
On the right side of the main screen, you can find the free space of hard disks. If there are more
than one hard disk is connected, it will display the status of each HD every 5 seconds.
When you start using a new hard disk (for example, a hard disk with capacity 80GB), the
percentage of free space will be very close to 100% (e.g. 99%), and the color will be BLUE.
However, as recording continues, the available space will diminish. When the remaining
available space is less than 4GB, the display color will change to ORANGE. This serves as a
warning message that the system will soon enter the Recycle Mode; which means, the earliest
recorded data will be replaced by the newest recording data. If you would like to keep all the
data, this is the time to swap a new hard disk.
If the disk has not been changed and the recording continues, the system will go into Recycle
Mode when the hard disk free space is less than 1GB. The color of “Hard Disk Free Space” will
turn RED.

the following figure:
[DI Status]
Choose Disable, NC, or NO according to your DI device (e.g., photo sensor).
z
Disable: Disable the DI function.
z
NC (normal closed): The signal loop is closed under normal conditions. When the loop
becomes open, DI will be triggered until the loop becomes closed again. In other words, if
the loop keeps on open for a period of time, DI will keep on triggering in that time interval.
z
NO (normal open): The signal loop is open under normal conditions. When the loop
becomes closed, DI will be triggered until the loop becomes open again. In other words, if
the loop keeps on closed for a period of time, DI will keep on triggering in that time
interval.
[DO Status]
z
Disable: Disable the DO function.
z
Enable: Enable the output signal when DO is triggered.
z
Set the duration of DO signal. The available durations are 5, 10, 30, 60, 120, 300, 600,
1800 and 3600 seconds. If DO is triggered, in this time interval, DO will keep on
32
triggering.
[Action]
There are 4 actions that are related to the DI/DO functions.
z
DI Camera Recording
z
When DI is triggered, DVR can start to record the video of selected cameras. You can
select the cameras to be recorded when DI is triggered by using the “DI/Camera array”
shown below the setting. Each DI signal can trigger more than one camera recording.
Cam Motion DO
z
When selected camera detects motion, selected DO can be triggered and start to send
control signal to the external device (e.g., alarm) within the DO duration. The
“Camera/DO array” below the setting allows you to relate the DO devices corresponding
to each camera.
Cam V-Loss DO
z
When selected camera video is lost, selected DO can be triggered and start to send control
signal to the external device (e.g., alarm) within the DO duration. The “Camera/DO array”
below the setting allows you to relate the DO devices corresponding to each camera.
DI DO
z
When selected DI is triggered, selected DO can be triggered and start to send control
signal to the external device (e.g., alarm) within the DO duration. The “DI/DO array”
below the setting allows you to relate the DO devices corresponding to each DI.
The following figure may help to understand the concept described above.

C. FAQ
1. Q. I have set the recording mode as motion sensor recording. But why the DVR still records
a lot of video that has no motion at all?
A:
(1) The digital recording system is very sensitive. It can detect the tiniest motion that
human eyes cannot perceive. You can lower the sensitivity setting in camera setup
menu.
(2) Flickering fluorescent lights (when traditional 120 Hz ballast are used) or TV (or
computer) screen can be the motion source. In this case, adjust the motion detection
area so that these flicking sources will not be detected. It is recommended not to
align the camera directly at fluorescent lights, TV, or computer screens. The use of
better-quality fluorescent lights (with electronic ballast), monitors, and the cameras
can be considered.
(3) When cameras are installed, please make sure the quality of cables, connections, and
workmanship. Sometimes interference could cause the image unstable. Avoid
placing the system close to a compressor (fridge), or to a motor (washing machine)
that might cause magnetic interference.
2. Q: What will happen if there is a power outage (cut)? Do I have to do anything?
A: If a power outage occurs, the last file will not be closed properly. Therefore, up to 10
minutes of data might be lost. It is recommend connecting the system to an Uninterruptible
Power Supply (UPS). This will help to avoid shortening the system life span and partial
data loss caused by the instability of power supply.

D. Internet Connection
D-1: IP address is used by one DVR only
Assume the static IP address you get from ISP is 211.23.87.163.
When
(1) The IP address is not used by any other devices, and
(2) ISP does not require user name and password to connect,
You can connect like the following figure:
Ethernet (RJ45)
DVR
ADSL Modem
In this case, just follow the instructions in section 3-6-7 and section 4-2 to make the DVR on
Internet.
User from Internet can use http://211.23.87.163 to connect to the DVR.
D-2: IP address is shared by more than one devices
Assume the static IP address you get from ISP is 211.23.87.163.
When
(1) The IP address is shared by more than one devices, or
(2) ISP requires user name and password to connect,
You can connect like the following figure:
Ethernet (RJ45)
192.168.123.51
DVR 1
211.23.87.163
192.168.123.52
DVR2
192.168.123.xx
ADSL Modem
NAT Router
Windows PC
77
In this case, you will need an NAT router to connect to the high-speed modem. Please refer to
the user manual of your NAT router to translate DVR1 (192.168.123.51 port 80) to a port of
211.23.87.163, for example, port 8001. Similarly, translate DVR2 (192.168.123.52 port 80) to
another port of 211.23.87.163, say, port 8002. You also need to set the user name and password
on this router in order to successfully connect to ISP. Follow the instructions in section 3-6-7 to
set the IP address of DVR1 as 192.168.123.51.
Users from Internet can now use http://211.23.87.163:8001 to connect to DVR1 and use
http://211.23.87.163:8002 to connect to DVR2.
