User Manual ‐ 5 INSTALLATION AND SETUP
UNIT INSTALLATION
Installation requirements
Before you start the installation, keep in mind that the computer used to connect to the NVX must
fulfill the following requirements:
 Web browser: Internet Explorer 10 or later.
 In the IE configuration, Internet Options/Security
Enable the installation of Active X packs (security level medium or medium-high)
Unselect the box Enable protected mode
As for the AXIS cameras, these must be Axis IP cameras, with support for H.264 streaming
(running firmware version 5.x or later)
Installation process
Unpack the box contents. Check that the box contains all the items described before. Write down
the serial number, it will be useful to identify the unit through the VS-Finder software.
Connect the TCP/IP cable provided with the unit to the RJ45 socket. The network adapter is
Ethernet 10/100/1000 Base-T.
Connect the input/output alarm wires from you installation to the plug-in strips provided with the
unit and then connect the plug-in strips to the unit. Consult the pin layout in this manual.
The alarm inputs do not have galvanic isolation, thus the activation / deactivation of the digital
signals require voltage-free contacts that allow the sensor and the unit isolation. The power
consume when the digital input is activated through a potential-free contact or through an output
open collector sensor is 0.5 mA.
The relay outputs that supply either normally open (NO) or normally closed (NC) contacts, can be
used to verify the internal status of the unit such as hard disk capacity, “working hours” or “non
working hours” status, etc. The electrical features of the relay outputs are:
 Maximum switching voltage: 24V AC/DC
 Maximum switching current: 1 A
The connector for the external power supply is placed on the unit rear.
The unit starts automatically when it is plugged to the power supply, or when power is recovered
after a power loss. Do not forget to unplug the unit any time you need to connect or disconnect any
of the external items. The unit has an informative led on the front that indicates the status of the
unit (on/off).

Network configuration
The initial network configuration of the unit must be fulfilled from the local area network (LAN)
where the unit is installed by using the VS-Finder application. This software is available in our
web: http://www.videosafe.net/VS-Finder_Index.html and in the CD provided with the unit.
Connect the computer you are going to use for configuring the unit to the same subnet where the
NVX is connected and run the VS-Finder application. This software identifies all the NVX on the
network. The NVX default IP address is: 192.168.1.100.
When several units are shown on the list, you can identify the one you want to configure through
the serial number, displayed on the screen of the VS-Finder under the column id/model. You can
locate the serial number of your NVX on a label on the bottom of the unit. Once the unit has been
identified, select it and a new window will open up displaying the fields to set the IP address, the
subnet mask and the gateway.
To change the connection original data click on the corresponding unit. It is necessary to use the
NVR administrator user password (by default: administrator). Then you can modify the IP address,
the subnet mask and the gateway. From then on you can connect to the unit by using its IP
address being unnecessary any other configuration of the unit with VS-Finder since you can
complete the network configuration by accessing the unit configuration menu.
To access the unit from an external connection (Internet) the router NAT table must be configured
to define a link between the global IP address and the unit local IP. For further information, please
refer to the Network configuration section of this manual.
User Manual ‐ 8 Connection from Internet Explorer
The NVX doesn’t have local interface. Connection is made using Internet Explorer 10 and above.
To connect to a NVX don’t forget to write the IP address using http:// before it. If you use a port
different from the standard one (port 80), this must be also specified after the IP address, preceded
by a colon.
Example: http://192.164.52.23:85.
For the correct functioning of the unit a complement must be installed on the web browser. This
complement will only be required the first time you access to the unit or after an upgrade. The
following message will be displayed at the bottom of the window: “This site needs the installation of
the following complement: NPlayerDeployer.cab from Visual Tools S.A.” Press the Install button
and you will access the unit.

Time settings: there are two options: set the date and time manually defining the time zone and
area or automatically by using a NTP server. You can use the NTP server by default (pool.ntp.org)
or chose a different one.
Timetable: the timetable can be controlled by a digital input or it can be manually defined.
Up to 5 shift entries are available.
Upgrade: section to upload and install the unit upgrades.
NETWORK CONFIGURATION
In this section you can configure all the network values for a basic or an advanced network
configuration.
Basic and advanced network configuration
Basic configuration: here the user can set the IP address, the subnet mask, DNS servers and the
gateway.
Advanced configuration: here it is possible to limit the maximum bandwidth both for LAN and
Internet, which by default is set in unlimited.
User Manual ‐ 25 Also the HTTP and RTSP ports can be defined here (by default 80 and 554 respectively).
VAV Visual Alarm Verification: in this section the IP address and the TCP port of the supervisor
post to receive the alarms are defined. The default port for the VMS Supervisor X is 6968. It is
possible to define up to two different alarm receivers.
Only the events as a result of the activation of a digital input or VMD with the option VAV marked
will be sent as VAV
Accessing the unit via Internet
To access the unit from an external connection (Internet) the router NAT table must be configured
to set a link between the global IP address and the unit local IP address. This requires the mapping
of the HTTP and RSTP ports as TCP ports of the unit.
With the button “Check network configuration” the network configuration is verified and a diagnosis
of the connection is obtained.
Connection with dynamic IP (DDNS)
When you want to connect via Internet with a unit with dynamic IP (the case of a public fixed IP
address is less common) you may find that you do not know the IP of the unit at any time. To solve
this you can use our own DDNS service by activating the option Dynamic IP of the network
advanced configuration menu
If for instance, you have a NVX with identity “SN03060963151234” the connection address instead
of its IP will be the address SN141130J2001234.dnsvídeo.net.
If the port is different from 80 (for instance, 90) to connect to the unit you should use the port also.
http://SN141130J2001234.dnsvídeo.net:90
The field identity can be found on a label at the bottom of the unit. It is recognized for the letters SN
+ serial number. If you need the identity of a unit and this is not available at that moment, in the
same local network you can run the program VS-Finder to locate the unit and its number. Under
the column name “Id” the internal serial number of the unit will be shown. Take the punctuation
marks out of it and type SN before and you will get the identity of the unit.
CAMERA CONFIGURATION
Here you can add the cameras to watch, follow the process described on the section First steps to
select and add the cameras.
We remind you that the Master Credentials are the set of user + password by default to be used by
the cameras with the box CM activated. We recommend you to set them in advance to add your
cameras with more agility.
User Manual ‐ 26 Once the camera have been added, you can edit their data (IP address, port, channel, etc),
change the order, delete it and access the IP camera configuration via web
INPUTS AND OUTPUTS CONFIGURATION
The unit has eight digital inputs and four outputs. To define their behavior, press the appropriate
option: Add new input / Add new output.
User Manual ‐ 27 Digital inputs
Type a name for the digital input.
In the section “Hardware Connections” select the position and connection type, normally open (NA)
or normally close (NC). Then choose the action for the cameras both in working hours and in no
working hours and finally, select the camera or cameras linked to the digital input.
Digital Output
Type a name for the digital output.
In the section “Hardware Connections” select the position and connection type, normally
normal/inverted. Then choose the function from the following options: manual, status ok, alarm,
event, working time, 95% hard disk full and client connected.
If you want to delete an input / output select the option none into the Hardware connections and
save the change.
VIDEO CONFIGURATION
Here you can configure the video features and the recording type associated to each camera.
Video Features
Into the Video section you can define the recording resolution, compression, quality (High, Medium
and Low) and finally, the images per second.
User Manual ‐ 28 The set of all options define the camera recording size.
For further information, please refer to the NVX recording calculator in our web site: www.visualtools.com.
Recordings
In the Recording section you can:
1. Define the time-lapse recording timetable for working hours, non working hours or both.
2. Define which type of event activates the recording for the event recording: by digital input
(magnetic) or through the motion detection (VMD).
The digital inputs are defined and linked to the cameras in the I/O configuration.
The VMD button is configured by pressing on its corresponding button. (More details below)
For the event recordings (by VMD or digital inputs), a pre-alarm time of up to 30 minutes and a
post-alarm time of up to 10 minutes can be defined, which helps avoid information loss.
Under the Video and Recordings panels there are some additional options for the camera
management such as copy of the configuration from one camera to another or the deletion of all
camera recording configurations.
Other configurations
It is possible to enter a value for the automatic deletion of the recordings set in days.
Also the value for the live video default size via LAN and via Internet can be set here. When
connecting to a unit, the video will be displayed with the size defined here, although it can be
changed at any time from the live video screen.
Configuring the VMD
When pressing the button VMD of a camera, a new window displays. It shows the viewer with a
grid overlay to select the cells that will activate the VMD sensor.
1. Select the option VMD active to activate the VMD.
2. Choose the actions to be performed (event alarm or inactive) according to the Schedule
(working hours and non working hours)
3. Choose the sensibility of the sensor (High, medium or low)
4. Define the area. All the cells can be activated at once by pressing the button
or deactivate by
pressing the button
Cells can be activated or deactivated individually by selecting them with the
cursor or by pressing the buttons
or
