Network configuration

Correct network settings are essential in the following cases:

When using remote control of the device and surveillance over your server

Note

Please read the following basic instructions before setting up the device.

A network is a connection of at least two network-capable devices.

Transmission types:

Wired networks (e.g. CAT5 cable)

Wireless networks (WLAN)

Other transmission types (Powerline)

All systems have certain similarities, but can also differ in many ways.

Terms and definitions

An overview of relevant terms when using the device in a network can be found below.

Parameter Setting

IP address An IP address is the unique address of a network device within a network.

This address may only appear once within a network. Certain IP address ranges are reserved for public networks (e.g. the

Internet).

Private address range e.g. 10.0.0.0

– 10.255.255.255

Subnet mask: 255.0.0.0

172.16.0.0 - 172.31.255.255

Subnet mask: 255.255.0.0

192.168.0.0 - 192.168.255.255

Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0

Subnet mask

A subnet mask is a bit mask used for making decisions and assignments during routing.

255.255.255.0 is the standard subnet mask in home networks.

Gateway A gateway is a network device which allows all other network devices to access the Internet.

This can be the computer connected to the DSL modem or

– usually – the router or access point within the network.

Parameter Setting

Name server

DHCP

The name server is responsible for assigning a unique IP address to a web address or URL (e.g. www.google.de). Also known as DNS (Domain Name Server).

When a domain name is entered into a browser, the DNS searches for the corresponding IP address of the server and forwards the query on.

The IP of the provider’s DNS can be entered here. However, it is often sufficient to select the IP of the gateway. This then forwards the queries independently to the provider DNS.

The DHCP server automatically assigns the IP address, subnet mask, gateway and name server to a network device.

DHCPs are available in current routers.

The DHCP service must be specially set and activated (see the corresponding manual for more information).

Note:

When using fixed IP addresses and a

DHCP server, make sure that the fixed IP addresses are outside the address range assigned by DHCP. Otherwise, problems could occur.

95

Settings

Port

MAC address

A port is an interface used for communication by different programs. Certain ports are fixed (23: Telnet, 21: FTP), whilst others can be freely selected.

Ports are important for different applications (e.g. external access to the device over a browser).

The MAC address (Media Access Control or Ethernet ID) is the specific hardware address of the network adapter.

This is used for the unique identification of the device in a computer network.

Network layout

The device must be physically connected to the network

over a CAT5 cable (see the connections on page 71).

Note

Pay attention to the specific information and instructions on the network devices.

Several switches, routers and access points can be connected to each other. Firewalls and other security software can affect the network.

Warning

When using a router, the network clients (e.g. the recorder) can be connected to the Internet and vice versa.

Make sure to use protective measures to prevent unauthorised external access (e.g. firewall, changing passwords, changing ports)!

Information on handling batteries

Always insert batteries with the correct polarity. Never attempt to recharge the batteries supplied and do not throw them into naked flames under any circumstances. Do not use different batteries at the same time (old and new, alkaline and zinc-carbon etc.).

Remove the batteries if the device is not used for a long period of time. If used improperly, there is a risk of explosion and leaking batteries!

Take environmental protection into account

– used batteries should not be disposed of in domestic waste! They must be taken to a collection point for used batteries.

Make sure that batteries are kept away from small children. Children may put batteries in their mouths and swallow them. This can cause serious harm to their health. If this happens, consult a doctor immediately.

Do not charge normal batteries, heat them up or throw them into naked flames (they may explode).

Change low batteries in good time.

Always change all the batteries at the same time and use batteries of the same type.

288 pixels (2CIF = 704 x 288 pixels; 4CIF = 704 x 576 pixels).

CINCH

Socket type used for analogue audio or CVBS video signals.

CVBS

Colour, Video, Blank and Sync

– The simplest variation of video signals (also known as composite video). The image quality is comparatively low.

DDNS

Dynamic Domain Name System entry

Network service which provides and updates IP addresses of its clients in a database.

DHCP

Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol

Network protocol which allows the automatic connection of devices (clients) in existing networks. DHCP servers

(e.g. Internet routers) automatically assign the IP address, network mask, gateway, DNS server and WINS server (when required). Only the automatic acquisition of

IP addresses must be activated for the client in this case.

Domain

Name used for the identification of websites on the Internet (e.g. www.abus-sc.de).

Dual Stream

Dual stream is a video transmission method. A highresolution recording and lower-resolution transmission are made over the network, for example. The main stream has a 4CIF resolution and the sub-stream has a

CIF resolution.

DVR

Digital Video Recorder

– A device used for recording different video and audio sources (analogue, digital). The data is compressed for recording and saved on hard disk drives (HDD).

H.264

(MPEG-4 AVC)

– Standard method for the highly-efficient compression of video signals. Used on Blu-ray discs or video conference systems, for example.

HDD

Hard Disk Drive

Digital data storage on computers or DVRs.

GIGABYTE

Unit of capacity for storage media (HDD, USB, SD/MMC cards).

HDVR

Hybrid DVR

– DVR used for recording analogue cameras and network cameras.

http

Hypertext Transfer Protocol

Method for transmitting data across networks. Primarily used for displaying websites in a browser.

INTERLACED

Method for improving the picture quality of a video signal without consuming extra bandwidth (scan pattern on every second line).

IP address

An address in the computer network based on the Internet protocol. Allows different devices to identify themselves in a network so that they are accessed specifically.

JPEG

Compression method for photo images with minimal loss.

Most digital cameras save photos in JPEG format.

127

MPEG

Moving Picture Experts Group

– International standard for the compression of moving images. On some DVDs, the digital audio signals are compressed and recorded in this format.

NTP

Network Time Protocol

Method for synchronising the time across networks.

SNTP (Simple Network Time Protocol) is also available, offering a simplified protocol.

NTSC

Standard television format in the USA. The method is different from the European PAL system in certain ways. A full-screen NTSC image is comprised of 480 visible lines and a total of 525 lines. 60 half-images are displayed per second. Compared to PAL, the system is more susceptible to colour errors.

PAL

Phase Alternating Line

– European colour TV system.

Uses 576 visible image lines. Together with the lines used for signal management, a full-screen image is comprised of 625 lines. 50 half-images are displayed per second. The phase position of the colour signal changes from line to line in the image.

PANEL

Interior of a flatscreen display (e.g. LCD or plasma panels).

PC

Internal HDD

Internal HDD

The internal hard disk drive (HDD) is very sensitive. Operate the device according to the following instructions in order to avoid drive errors. Important recordings should be backed up on external media to avoid unexpected data loss.

Note

Do not move the device during operation.

Moisture inside the device can condense and lead to HDD malfunctions.

When the device is turned on, never remove the mains plug from the socket or interrupt the power supply using the safety switch.

Do not move the device immediately after switching it off. To move the device, carry out the following steps:

1. Wait until OFF has been shown on the display for at least two minutes.

2. Remove the mains plug from the socket.

3. Move the device.

Data on the HDD can be lost in the event of a power failure during operation. Use an uninterruptible power supply (UPS)!

The HDD is very sensitive. Improper use or unsuitable surroundings can damage the HDD after some years of use. This may be indicated by the playback stopping unexpectedly or visible “mosaic” effects in the image.

In some circumstances, there are no prior signs of a HDD malfunction.

In the event of a malfunction, no recordings can be played. The HDD must be replaced in this case.
