4.2. HDD Installation
Check the settings:
Before installation, please read carefully the recommendations below as high internal temperature of the
product can lead to damages and shorten the product’s life cycle.
13
English
Recommendations on installing a NVR in a rack:
Do not seal the inside of the rack where the NVR is installed. Keep the airflow through the inlet and outlet.
If there is another device installed in the rack, secure the additional space or install an air ventilation. Installation
of an air circulation fan around each inlet and outlet is strongly recommended. (Install the filter for harmful
substances around the inlet or outlet.)
Keep the ambient temperature between 5°C~45°C around the NVR.
Warnings if a HDD is installed:
Please be extra careful not to damage the HDD as it easily breaks.
During installation, make sure the insulated coat does not come off or is not placed in the wrong place. Do not
lose screws and parts. (If screws and parts are not screwed or assembled correctly, the product may not operate.)
Check the HDD compatibility list.
The Partition table must be removed for the HDDs previously used in a PC or other DVR models before
installation.
Before you start:
Disconnect the power from the NVR before installing a hard disk drive (HDD). A factory recommended HDD
should be used for this installation.
Up to 8 SATA hard disks can be installed on your NVR.
Tools required:
1 Screwdriver.
1. Remove the cover from the NVR by unfastening the screws on the rear and side panel.
2. Connect one end of the data cable to the motherboard of the NVR and the other end to the HDD.
3. Connect the power cable to the HDD.
English
14
4. Place the HDD on the bottom of the device and then fasten the screws on the bottom to fix the HDD.
5. Re-install the cover of the NVR and fasten the screws.
4.3. Peripheral Connections
Instructions on wiring the Alarm Input / Output:
The alarm input/output interface of the NVR is shown as below:
The alarm input is an open/closed relay. If the input is not an open/closed relay, follow the connection diagram
below:
To connect to an alarm output (AC or DC load), use the following diagram:
15
English
For DC load, JP4 can be used within the limit of 12V/1A safely. If the interface is connected to an AC load, JP4
should be left open. Use an external relay for safety (as shown in the figure above).
There are 4 jumpers (JP1, JP2, JP3, and JP4) on the motherboard, each corresponding with one alarm output. By
default, the jumpers are connected. To connect an AC load, the jumpers should be removed.
NOTE: An external relay is needed to prevent electric shock when connecting to an AC load.
Using the Alarm Connectors:
To connect the alarm devices to the NVR:
1. Disconnect the pluggable block from the ALARM IN /ALARM OUT terminal block.
2. Unfasten the stop screws from the pluggable block, insert the signal cables into the slots and fasten the stop
screws. Ensure that the signal cables are in tightly.
3. Connect the pluggable block back to the terminal block.
5. Getting Started
5.1. Operation of the NVR
5.1.1. Remote Control
It is possible to use all functions of the DVR with the remote control. If several DVRs are set with unique ID
numbers, they can be controlled with one remote control.
English
16
17
English
5.1.2. Troubleshooting the Remote Control
NOTE: Make sure you have installed the batteries properly in the remote control. And you have to aim the remote
control at the IR receiver in the front panel.
If there is no response after you press any button on the remote, follow the procedure below to troubleshoot.
English
18
Setting the ID of the DVR:
Normally the remote control works out of the box. If the remote control is not working, please set the Remote
Control ID as follows:
Remote Control Setup Steps:
1. Go to Menu > Settings > General > More Settings by operating the front control panel or the mouse.
2. Check and remember the NVR ID#. The default ID# is 255. This ID# is valid for all the IR remote controls.
3. Press the DEV button on the remote control.
4. Enter the NVR ID# you set in step 2.
5. Press the ENTER button on the remote.
If the Status indicator on the front panel turns blue, the remote control is operating properly. If the Status
indicator does not turn blue and there is still no response from the remote, please check the following:
1. Batteries are installed correctly and the polarities of the batteries are not reversed.
2. Batteries are fresh and not out of charge.
3. IR receiver is not obstructed.
If the remote still cannot function properly, please change the remote and try again, or contact your dealer.
5.1.3. USB Mouse Operation
A regular 3-button (Left/Right/Scroll-wheel) USB mouse can also be used with this NVR.
To use an USB mouse:
1. Plug the USB mouse into one of the USB interfaces on the front panel of the NVR.
2. The mouse should automatically be detected. If in a rare case, the mouse is not detected, the possible reason
may be that the two devices are not compatible, please refer to the recommended device list from your provider.
The operation of the mouse:

5.3. Starting Up and Shutting Down
Proper startup and shutdown procedures are crucial to expanding the life of the NVR.
Before you start:
Check that the voltage of the extra power supply is the same as the NVR’s requirement, and the ground
connection is working properly.
Starting up the NVR:
Steps:
1. Check whether the power supply is plugged into an electrical outlet. It is HIGHLY recommended that an
Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) is used in conjunction with the device. The Power indicator LED on the front
panel should be red, indicating the device gets the power supply.
2. Turn on the power switch on the rear panel if the device starts up for the first time, or press the “Standby”
button on the front panel. The Power indicator LED should turn blue indicating that the unit begins to start up.
3. After startup, the Power indicator LED remains blue. A splash screen with the status of the HDD appears on
the monitor. The row of icons at the bottom of the screen shows the HDD status. ‘X’ means that the HDD is not
installed or cannot be detected.
English
20

interface.
There are 16 customised protocols provided in the system, where you can edit the protocol name and choose
whether to enable the sub-stream.
2. Choose the protocol type of transmission and choose the transfer protocols.
NOTE: Before customising the protocol for the network camera, you have to contact the manufacturer of the
network camera to consult the URL (uniform resource locator) for getting main stream and sub-stream.
The format of the URL is: [Type]://[IP Address of the network camera]:[Port]/[Path].
Example: rtsp://192.168.1.55:554/ch1/main/av_stream.
31
English
- Protocol Name: Edit the name for the custom protocol.
- Enable Substream: If the network camera does not support sub-stream or the sub-stream is not needed, leave
the checkbox empty.

- Transfer Protocol: Select the transfer protocol for the custom protocol.
- Port: Set the port No. For the custom protocol.
- Path: Set the resource path for the custom protocol. E.g., ch1/main/av_stream.
NOTE: The protocol type and the transfer protocols must be supported by the connected network camera.
After adding the customised protocols, you can see that the protocol name is listed in the dropdown list.

5.8.3. Edit the IP Cameras Connected to the PoE Built-in Switch
This section is applicable to GRN-G1004P & GRN-G1116P models only.
As the adding camera steps for the built-in switch are the same as the ones for the PoE interfaces, we take the
instruction of connecting to the network cameras via the PoE interface as an example.
The PoE interfaces enable the NVR system to pass on electrical power safely, along with data, on Ethernet
cabling to the connected network cameras.
The NVR which supports the PoE function can connect to the network cameras directly via the PoE interfaces.
And if you disable the PoE interface, you can also connect to the online network cameras.
English
32
Example:
If you want to connect 2 online cameras and connect 6 network cameras via PoE interfaces to a GRN-G1116P, you
must disable 2 PoE interfaces in the “Edit IP Camera” menu.
Adding Cameras for an NVR supporting the PoE Function:
Before you start:
Connect the network cameras via the PoE interfaces.
Steps:
1. Enter the Camera Management interface: Menu> Camera> Camera
- Manua You can disable the PoE interface by selecting “Manual” while the current channel can be used as a
normal channel and the parameters can also be edited.
Input the IP address, the user name and password of the administrator manually, and click “OK” to add the IP
camera.
5.8.4. Checking the PoE Information
