Before You Get Started
A: Gather Your Components.
B: Unpack the box...
You will need:

We STRONGLY recommend that you use one that has the following specifications:
• UL-1449 Rated
• Clamping voltage of 330 or lower
• Joule rating of at least 400
• Response time of 10 nanoseconds or less
Check the contents against the “What’s in the Box” list that was

missing components, please contact Q-See Customer Support

panel - if included.
Your DVR can be controlled using the included USB mouse, remote control or the function keys on the front of the unit. For the purposes of this guide, we will be giving instructions using the mouse. Because this
guide covers several models in the QT series of DVRs, components in photos may not exactly match those on your particular mode.
