 Please pay attention to the front cover. It adopts the vertical sliding design. You need
to push the clip first and then put down.
3.4 Connecting Power Supply
Please check input voltage and device power button match or not.
We recommend you use UPS to guarantee steady operation, DVR life span, and other
peripheral equipments operation such as cameras.
3.5
Connecting Video Input and Output Devices
3.5.1 Connecting Video Input
The video input interface is BNC. The input video format includes: PAL/NTSC BNC
(1.0V P- P , 75Ω.).
The input video format: BNC(0.8VP-P,75Ω),
The video signal should comply with your national standards.
The input video signal shall have high SNR, low distortion; low interference, natural color
and suitable lightness.
Guarantee the stability and reliability of the camera signal:
The camera shall be installed in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight, inflammable,
explosive substances and etc.
The camera and the DVR should have the same grounding to ensure the normal
operation of the camera.
Guarantee stability and reliability of the transmission line
Please use high quality, sound shielded BNC. Please select suitable BNC model
according to the transmission distance.
If the distance is too long, you should use twisted pair cable, and you can add video
compensation devices or use optical fiber to ensure video quality.
You should keep the video signal away from the strong electromagnetic interference,
especially the high tension current.
Keep connection lugs in well contact
The signal line and shielded wire should be fixed firmly and in well connection. Avoid dry
joint, lap welding and oxidation.

3.5.2 Connecting Video Output
Video output includes a BNC(PAL/NTSC, 1.0VP- P, 75Ω)output, a VGA output and a
HDMI output.
System supports BNC, VGA and HDMI output at the same time.
When you are using pc-type monitor to replace the monitor, please pay attention to the
following points:
 To defer aging, do not allow the pc monitor to run for a long time.
 Regular demagnetization will keep device maintain proper status.
T
217
 Keep it away from strong electromagnetic interference devices.
Using TV as video output device is not a reliable substitution method. You also need to
reduce the working hour and control the interference from power supply and other devices.
The low quality TV may result in device damage.
3.6 Connecting Audio Input & Output, Bidirectional Audio
3.6.1 Audio Input
BNC port is adopted for audio input port.
Due to high impedance of audio input, please use active sound pick-up.
Audio transmission is similar to video transmission. Try to avoid interference, dry joint,
loose contact and it shall be away from high tension current.
3.6.2 Audio Output
The audio output signal parameter is usually over 200mv 1KΩ (BNC). It can directly
connect to low impedance earphone, active sound box or amplifier-drive audio output
device.
If the sound box and the pick-up cannot be separated spatially, it is easy to arouse
squeaking. In this case you can adopt the following measures:
 Use better sound pick-up with better directing property.
 Reduce the volume of the sound box.
 Using more sound-absorbing materials in decoration can reduce voice echo and
improve acoustics environment.
 Adjust the layout to reduce happening of the squeaking.
3.7 Alarm Input and Output Connection
Please read the followings before connecting.
1. Alarm input
a. Please make sure alarm input mode is grounding alarm input.
b. Grounding signal is needed for alarm input.
c. Alarm input needs the low level voltage signal.
d. Alarm input mode can be either NC (normal Open) or NO (Normal Close)
e. When you are connecting two DVRs or you are connecting one DVR and one other
device, please use a relay to separate them,
2. Alarm output
The alarm output port should not be connected to high power load directly (It shall be less
than 1A) to avoid high current which may result in relay damage. Please use the co
contactor to realize the connection between the alarm output port and the load.
3. How to connect PTZ decoder
a. Ensure the decoder has the same grounding with DVR, otherwise you may not control
the PTZ. Shielded twisted wire is recommended and the shielded layer is used to connect
to the grounding.
b. Avoid high voltage. Ensure proper wiring and some thunder protection measures.
218
c. For too long signal wires, 120Ω should be parallel connected between A, B lines on the
far end to reduce reflection and guarantee the signal quality.
d. “485 A, B” of DVR cannot parallel connect with “485 port” of other device.
e. The voltage between of A,B lines of the decoder should be less than 5v.
4. Please make sure the front-end device has soundly earthed.
Improper grounding may result in chip damage.
3.7.1 Alarm Input and Output Details

3.8 RS485
When the DVR receives a camera control command, it transmits that command up the coaxial
cable to the PTZ device. RS485 is a single-direction protocol; the PTZ device can’t return any
data to the unit. To enable the operation, connect the PTZ device to the RS485 (A,B) input on
the DVR.
Since RS485 is disabled by default for each camera, you must enable the PTZ settings first.
This series DVRs support multiple protocols such as Pelco-D, Pelco-P.
To connect PTZ devices to the DVR:
1. Connect RS485 A,B on the DVR rear panel.
2. Connect the other end of the cable to the proper pins in the connector on the camera.
3. Please follow the instructions to configure a camera to enable each PTZ device on the
DVR.

 Noise: The video noise refers to the blurry video, poor video quality. It may result from
the optical system distortion or the hardware problem during the video transmission
when recording.
 Color cast: Usually the video is color containing RGB. When these three colors
displayed in abnormal rate, we can say color cast occurred.
 Out of focus: The clear video presents abundant video details. The video definition
decreases when the distortion event occurs. The out of focus event may result from
many sources such as video transmission, processing and etc.
 Over exposure: The color brightness refers to the image pixel intensity. Black is the
darkest and the white is the brightest. We use number 0 to stand for black and use
number 255 to stand for white. Once the brightness threshold of the whole image has
exceeded the threshold value, it means the image is over exposure.
 Threshold: The value ranges from 1 to 30. System can generate an alarm once the
value is higher than the threshold you set here.

Dahua DDNS and Client-end Introduction
1) Background Introduction
Device IP is not fixed if you use ADSL to login the network. The DDNS function allows you
to access the DVR via the registered domain name. Besides the general DDNS, the
Dahua DDNS works with the device from the manufacturer so that it can add the
extension function.
394
2) Function Introduction
The Dahua DDNS client has the same function as other DDNS client end. It realizes the
bonding of the domain name and the IP address. Right now, current DDNS server is for
our own devices only. You need to refresh the bonding relationship of the domain and the
IP regularly. There is no user name, password or the ID registration on the server. At the
same time, each device has a default domain name (Generated by MAC address) for your
option. You can also use customized valid domain name (has not registered.).
3) Operation
Before you use Dahua DDNS, you need to enable this service and set proper server
address, port value and domain name.

Server address:www.dahuaddns.com

Port number:80

Domain name:There are two modes: Default domain name and customized domain
name.
Except default domain name registration, you can also use customized domain name
(You can input your self-defined domain name.) After successful registration, you can
use domain name to login installed of the device IP.

User name: It is optional. You can input your commonly used email address.
Important
 Do not register frequently. The interval between two registrations shall be more than
60 seconds. Too many registration requests may result in server attack.
 System may take back the domain name that is idle for one year. You can get a
notification email before the cancel operation if your email address setup is OK.

each channel needed for each hour, unit Mbyte.
qi  d i  8  3600  1024
(1)
In the formula: d i means the bit rate, unit Kbit/s
Step 2: After video time requirement is confirmed, according to Formula (2) to calculate
the storage capacity mi , which is storage of each channel needed unit Mbyte.
mi = qi ×hi × Di
(2)
In the formula:
hi means the recording time for each day (hour)
Di means number of days for which the video shall be
kept
Step 3: According to Formula (3) to calculate total capacity (accumulation) qT that is
needed for all channels in the DVR during scheduled video recording.
c
qT   mi
(3)
i 1
In the formula: c means total number of channels in one DVR
Step 4: According to Formula (4) to calculate total capacity (accumulation) qT that is
needed for all channels in DVR during alarm video recording (including motion
detection).

Appendix G Earthing
1. What is the surge?
Surge is a short current or voltage change during a very short time. In the circuit, it lasts
for microsecond. In a 220V circuit, the 5KV or 10KV voltage change during a very short
time (about microseconds) can be called a surge. The surge comes from two ways:
external surge and internal surge.
 The external surge: The external surge mainly comes from the thunder lightning. Or it
comes from the voltage change during the on/off operation in the electric power
cable.
 The internal surge: The research finds 88% of the surge from the low voltage comes
from the internal of the building such as the air conditioning, elevator, electric welding,
air compressor, water pump, power button, duplicating machine and other device of
inductive load.
The lightning surge is far above the load level the PC or the micro devices can support. In
most cases, the surge can result in electric device chip damage, PC error code,
accelerating the part aging, data loss and etc. Even when a small 20 horsepower inductive
engine boots up or stops, the surge can reach 3000V to 50000V, which can adversely
affect the electronic devices that use the same distribution box.
To protect the device, you need to evaluate its environment, the lighting affection degree
objectively. Because surge has close relationship with the voltage amplitude, frequency,
network structure, device voltage-resistance, protection level, ground and etc. The
thunder proof work shall be a systematic project, emphasizing the all-round protection
(including building, transmission cable, device, ground and etc.). There shall be
comprehensive management and the measures shall be scientific, reliable, practical and
economic. Considering the high voltage during the inductive thundering, the International
Electrotechnical Committee (IEC) standard on the energy absorbing step by step theory
and magnitude classification in the protection zone, you need to prepare multiple
precaution levels.
You can use the lightning rod, lightning strap or the lightning net to reduce the damage to
the building, personal injury or the property,

The lightning protection device can be divided into three types:
Power lightning arrester: There are 220V single-phrase lightning arrester and 380V
three-phrase lightening arrester (mainly in parallel connection, sometimes use series
connection ) You can parallel connect the power lightning arrester in the electric cable
to reduce the short-time voltage change and release the surge current. From the BUS
to the device, there are usually three levels so that system can reduce the voltage
and release the current step by step to remove the thunderstorm energy and
guarantee the device safety. You can select the replaceable module type, the terminal
connection type and portable socket according to your requirement.
480

Signal lightning arrester: This device is mainly used in the PC network,
communication system. The connection type is serial connection. Once you
connected the signal lightning arrestor with the signal port, it can cut the channel of
the thunderstorm to the device, and on the other hand, it can discharge the current to
the ground to guarantee the device proper work. The signal lightning arrester has
many specifications, and widely used in many devices such as telephone, network,
analog communication, digital communication, cable TV and satellite antenna. For all
the input port, especially those from the outdoor, you need to install the signal
lightning arrester.
 Antenna feed cable lightning arrester: It is suitable for antenna system of the
transmitter or the device system to receive the wireless signal. It uses the serial
connection too.
Please note, when you select the lighting arrester, please pay attention to the port type
and the earthing reliability. In some important environment, you need to use special
shielded cable. Do not parallel connect the thunder proof ground cable with the ground
cable of the lightning rod. Please make sure they are far enough and grounded
respectively.
2. The earthing modes
We all know the earthing is the most complicated technology in the electromagnetism
compatibility design since there is no systematic theory or module. The earthing has many
modes, but the selection depends on the system structure and performance. The
following are some successfully experience from our past work.
One-point ground: In the following figure you can see there is a one-point ground. This
connection provides common port to allow signal to be transmitted in many circuits. If
there is no common port, the error signal transmission occurred. In the one-point ground
mode, each circuit is just grounded only and they are connected at the same port. Since
there is only one common port, there is no circuit and so, there is no interference.
Multiple-point ground: In the following figure, you can see the internal circuit uses the
chassis as the common point. While at the same time, all devices chassis use the
earthing as the common port. In this connection, the ground structure can provide the
lower ground resistance because when there are multiple-point grounds; each ground
cable is as short as possible. And the parallel cable connection can reduce the total
481
conductance of the ground conductor. In the high-frequency circuit, you need to use the
multiple-point ground mode and each cable needs to connect to the ground. The length
shall be less than the 1/20 of the signal wavelength.
Mixed ground: The mix ground consists of the feature of the one-point ground and
multiple-point ground. For example, the power in the system needs to use the one-point
ground mode while the radio frequency signal requires the multiple-point ground. So,
you can use the following figure to earth. For the direct current (DC), the capacitance is
open circuit and the circuit is one-point ground. For the radio frequency signal, the
capacitance is conducive and the circuit adopts multiple-point ground.
When connecting devices of huge size (the device physical dimension and connection
cable is big comparing with the wave path of existed interference), then there are
possibility of interference when the current goes through the chassis and cable. In this
situation, the interference circuit path usually lies in the system ground circuit.
When considering the earthing, you need to think about two aspects: The first is the
system compatibility, and the other is the external interference coupling into the earth
circuit, which results in system error. For the external interference is not regular, it is not
easy to resolve.
3. Thunder proof ground method in the monitor system
 The monitor system shall have sound thunder proof earthing to guarantee personnel
safety and device safety.
 The monitor system working ground resistance shall be less than 1Ω.
482



The thunder proof ground shall adopt the special ground cable from the monitor
control room to the ground object. The ground cable adopts copper insulation cable
or wire and its ground section shall be more than 20mm2.
The ground cable of the monitor system can not short circuit or mixed connected with
the strong alternative current cable.
For all the ground cables from the control room to the monitor system or ground cable
of other monitor devices, please use the copper resistance soft cable and its section
shall be more than 4mm2.
The monitor system usually can adopt the one-point ground.
Please connect the ground end of 3-pin socket in the monitor system to the ground
port of the system (protection ground cable)
4. The shortcut way to check the electric system using the digital multimeter
For 220V AC socket, from the top to the bottom, E (ground cable), N (neutral cable), L(live
cable). Please refer to the following figure.
There is a shortcut way to check these thee cables connection are standard or not (not the
accurate check).
Importance
In the following operations, the multimeter range shall be at 750V!
For E (earth cable)
Turn the digital multimeter to 750V AC, use your one hand to hold the metal end, and then
the other hand insert the pen to the E port of the socket. See the following figure. If the
multimeter shows 0, then you can see current earth cable connection is standard. If the
value is more than 10, then you can see there is inductive current and the earth cable
connection is not proper.
483
For L (live cable)
Turn the digital multimeter to 750V AC, use your one hand to hold the metal end, and then
the other hand insert the pen to the L port of the socket. See the following figure. If the
multimeter shows 120, then you can see current live cable connection is standard. If the
value is less than 60, then you can see current live cable connection is not proper or it is
not the live cable at all.
For N (Neutral cable)
Turn the digital multimeter to 750V AC, use your one hand to hold the metal end, and then
the other hand insert the pen to the N port of the socket. See the following figure. If the
multimeter shows 0, then you can see current N cable connection is standard. If the
value is more than 10, then you can see there is inductive current and the neutral cable
connection is not proper. If the value is 120, then you can know misconnected the
neutral cable to the live cable.
