Troubleshooting Remote Control:
Make sure you have installed 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.
Steps:
1. Go to Menu > Settings > General > More Settings by operating the front control panel or the mouse.
2. Check and remember 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:

2. Batteries are fresh and not out of charge.
3. IR receiver is not obstructed.
If the remote still can’t function properly, please change a remote and try again, or contact the device provider.

Universal Plug and Play (UPnP™) can permit the device seamlessly discover the presence of other network
devices on the network and establish functional network services for data sharing, communications, etc. You can
use the UPnP™ function to enable the fast connection of the device to the WAN via a router without port mapping.
Before you start:
If you want to enable the UPnP™ function of the device, you must enable the UPnP™ function of the router to
which your device is connected. When the network working mode of the device is set as multi-address, the Default
Route of the device should be in the same network segment as that of the LAN IP address of the router.
Steps:
1. Enter the Network Settings interface.
Menu > Configuration > Network
2. Select the NAT tab to enter the port mapping interface.

3. Check
checkbox to enable UPnP™.
4. Select the Mapping Type as Manual or Auto in the drop-down list.
OPTION 1: Auto
If you select Auto, the Port Mapping items are read-only, and the external ports are set by the router
automatically.
Steps:
1) Select Auto in the drop-down list of Mapping Type.

 You can use the default port No., or change it according to actual requirements.
 External Port indicates the port No. for port mapping in the router.
 The value of the RTSP port No. should be 554 or between 1024 and 65535, while the value of the
other ports should be between 1 and 65535 and the value must be different from each other. If
multiple devices are configured for the UPnP™ settings under the same router, the value of the
port No. for each device should be unique.
