In order to view the NVR from a network it must be connected to a LAN/WAN or internet. The network setup should be done accordingly.
Please refer to 5.6 Network Setup.
8.2.1 Via LAN
① Go to the NVR’s Main MenuSetupNetwork tab to input IP address, Subnet Mask, etc. If using DHCP, please enable DHCP in both the
NVR and the router.
② Enter Record Setup to set network video parameters like resolution, frame rate etc.
③ Open IE on a computer on the same network. Input the IP address of the NVR in IE address bar and press enter.
④ IE will download ActiveX component automatically. Enter the username and password in the subsequent window.
Notice: If HTTP port is not 80, add the port number after IP address. For example, set HTTP port as 82, input IP
address like 192.168.0.25:82. User name and password here are the same with that used on the NVR. The default is admin and
123456.

8.2.2 Via WAN
There are two ways for the NVR to connect to internet.
1. Connect the NVR to internet through router or virtual server
① Go to the NVR’s Main MenuSetupNetwork interface to input IP address, Subnet Mask, etc. If using DHCP, please enable DHCP in
both the NVR and router.
② Forward IP address and port number in Virtual Server setup of the router or virtual server. Configure the firewall to allow accessing the
NVR.
Note: Port forwarding settings may be different in different routers and server. Please refer to the router’s manual for details.
③ Open IE browser, input IP address, or dynamic domain name and enter. If HTTP port is not 80, add the port number after IP address or
domain name.
④ IE will download ActiveX control automatically. Then a window pops up and asks for user name and password. Input name and password
correctly, and enter to view.
Note: If you cannot download and install ActiveX, please refer to FAQ Q8.
2. Connect the NVR to internet through PPPoE directly.
① Go to the NVR’s Main MenuSetupNetwork interface to enable PPPoE and then input user name and password received from your ISP.
Next, click “Apply”. The NVR will connect to the server and would give a confirmation message.
② When accessing the remote interface of NVR, user can input WAN IP to access directly (user can go to Main
MenuInformationNetwork interface to check IP address).
③ If users want to utilize dynamic domain name, please apply for a domain name in a DNS server supported by the NVR or router. Then add
to the NVR.
④ Open IE browser to input WAN IP address or domain name and then enter. If HTTP port is not 80, add the port number after IP address or
domain name.
8.3 Remote Surveillance through Apple PC
Note: Because the current plug-in version of client end just only supports 32-bit mode, so the safari browser
shall start 32-bit mode. If the browser is the earlier MACOS version, the default setting is 32-bit mode and the
setting can be skipped.
The Setting steps are as follows:
First: Right click safari icon and select “Show in Finder”.
Second: Select ApplicationsRight click “Safari. App”Select “Get Info”.
Third: Select “open in 32- bit mode”.

⑥
After finishing installing the ActiveX control, please quit from the Safari browser. Right click Safari icon on the desktop and then select
“Quit” button to quit the browser. Then restart Safari browser. Input the IP address and HTTP port to go to the login interface of NVR.
8.3.2 Via WAN
There are also two ways for NVR to connect to Internet.
1. Connect the NVR to internet through router or virtual server.
① The network setups are the same as step one to step four of point 1 on WAN of IE remote surveillance.
② Enter WAN IP and HTTP port in the safari browser to install the ActiveX control. Then a window pops up and asks for user name and
password. Input name and password correctly, and enter to view.
2. Connect the NVR to internet directly.
① The network setups are the same as step one of point 2 on WAN of IE remote surveillance.
② Enter WAN IP and HTTP port or domain name in the Safari browser to install the Active control. Then a window pops up and asks for
user name and password. Input name and password correctly, and enter to view.

Q9: NVR displays “please wait…”all the time. Why and how can I do?
a.HDD power cable and data cable may not be well connected. Please check the connections for HDD.
b. It is also possible that the NVR was forced to stop because HDD has a bad sector and it may have caused the system to halt. Check
with a good known HDD or try formatting the existing HDD.
Q10: How to input password and numbers in the interface?
Click the password or the input box to pop up a small keyboard. Please select characters to be input (the initial password is 123456), or
you can use the digital keys on the front panel, or the digital keys on the remote controller.
Q11: A hard disk is being identified as a new device however it was being used with another NVR of same model. Should it be
formatted prior to use?
It is possible to migrate an HDD from one NVR to another provided that the NVRs are of the same model and that the HDD being
migrated would be used as the sole disk in the new NVR. However in cases where the new NVR already contains a HDD, the migrated disk
being installed would have to be formatted. In general migrating disks from one NVR to another is not recommended.

Appendix B Calculate Recording Capacity
You can calculate the size of hard disk according to the storage time and NVR recording settings. The formula is as follows in full frame
rate condition. Used space per hour (MB/h) = Bitrate (kbps) ÷ 8 × 3600 ÷ 1024. The below are the details at different settings.
Resolution
Frame Rate
Image
30fps
(NTSC)

4M
1.5M
Used
Space(MB/h)
5400
4050
3150
2700
1800
675
The calculation format is: Total Recording capacity = Used space per hour (MB/h) (coverage rate of hard disk) × recording time
(hour) × channel numbers
For instance, one customer sets resolution to1080P, frame rate to 30fps, bitrate to 1.5M and enables total 4 channels. He wants the unit
to record continuously in a month. Below is the calculation:
Total Recoding capacity = 675 (mb/h) × 24(hours/day) × 30(days) × 4 (channels) = 1944000 (MB) ≈ 1898(GB)
Therefore, customers just install two SATA HDDs with 1000GB to record for one month .
