About this Manual
This manual is written for the QT family of Conventional and SDI DVRs. Not all features and
capabilities are shared across all models so you may see features described which are not
applicable or available on your machine. In addition you may see screen images that do not
exactly match those on your display.
This manual was accurate at the time it was completed. However, because of our ongoing
effort to constantly improve our products, features and functions may have been added
or changed since that time and on-screen displays may change. We encourage you to
visit our website at www.Q-See.com to check for the latest firmware updates and product
announcements.
Throughout the manual we have highlighted warnings and other important information that will
assist you in operating your new system in a safe and trouble-free manner. Please take the
time to read and follow all instructions and pay attention to alerts as shown below:
IMPORTANT! Red boxes with this icon indicate warnings. To prevent
possible injury or damage to the product, read all warnings before use.
NOTE! Text in blue boxes with the Information icon offer additional guidance
and explanations about how to make the most out of your system.
AN IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT CONVENTIONAL AND SDI SYSTEMS
Depending upon the model, your DVR is equipped to work with conventional analog cameras
or digital high definition SDI (Serial Digital Interface) cameras. Both cameras use similar
cables and connectors, (see Section 2.5 for connection instructions) but they are not
interchangeable as they are two completely different - and incompatible - technologies. If you
are adding cameras beyond those that came packaged with your DVR, be sure to check that
they are compatible with your system.
Aside from this, the operation of the DVR is identical regardless of the technology. The primary
difference is in resolution. While recent breakthroughs in analog video technology have allowed
conventional cameras to be able to deliver resolutions up to 1000 TVL (Television Lines) as of
this writing, Q-See’s SDI cameras record in 720p and1080p high definition which offers the
advantage of a higher pixel count and no loss of clarity due to having to convert the video
signal between digital and analog formats. Similarly, the conventional DVRs can only record
files up to the D1 (704x480 pixels) or 960H formats (960x480 pixels) while the SDI systems will
record in formats up to 1080p (1920x1080 pixels).

INTRODUCTION
CHAPTER 1
FOR YOUR SAFETY
To prevent damage to your Q-See product or injury to yourself or to others, read and
understand the following safety precautions in their entirety before installing or using this
equipment. Keep these safety instructions where all those who use the product will read them.
WARNING! ELECTRIC SHOCK RISK!
nCheck the unit and any accessories included in the package immediately after opening. If
items are missing or damaged, repackage and return to the point of purchase.
n Use the proper power source. Only use the power adapter supplied with your system. Do
not use this product with a power source that applies more than the specified voltage (100240V AC).
nNever insert anything metallic into the DVR. Inserting anything into the DVR or its case can
be a source of dangerous electric shock.
nDo not operate in dusty areas. Avoid placing the DVR in places that are dusty.
nDo not expose this product to rain or use near water. If this product accidentally gets wet,

CONNECTIONS AND CONTROLS
CHAPTER 2
You may view this DVR using a standard 19” (or larger) VGA monitor or a television. The
former is connected using the VGA port on the back panel while the television utilizes the
BNC “Video Out” port on the back. Your DVR is configured to use the VGA port as the main
display. To use a TV, you will need to press and hold the STOP/ESC, EXIT or VGA/TV button
(depending on model) for approximately 10 seconds until you hear a beep indicating that the
video mode has been switched. A display connected to the other port will not show the menu.
In addition to the buttons on the front of the DVR, your system can be controlled through the
USB mouse and the remote control. We have found that the majority of our customers prefer
to operate their DVRs using the USB mouse because of its ease of use and flexibility and our
manual is set up with this in mind.
2.1 MOUSE
The mouse is the default tool for navigating through the menus. Specific instructions for its use
within a function appear in the appropriate sections of the manual, but a basic overview is below:
In Live View:
Double-click the left button on any camera
view in split-screen mode to bring it to fullscreen display.
Double-click again to return to split-screen
mode.
Right-click to show the control bar at the
bottom of the screen.
Right-clicking again will hide the control bar.
In Setup:
Left-click to make a selection. Right-click to
cancel setup or return to previous screen.
PICTURE 2-1
To Input Values:
Move the cursor to a blank field and click. A virtual keyboard will appear which supports
numbers, letters and symbols. The Shift function will access symbols in addition to upper case
letters.
Certain values, such as time settings, can be changed using the mouse wheel.
PICTURE 2-2

2.2 REMOTE CONTROL
The remote control allows you to perform most of the
day-to-day functions from a convenient distance. It
functions as a typical remote control with additional
buttons allowing you to navigate through menus and
control functions. We recommend that you configure
your DVR using the mouse controls, reserving the
remote control for operations such as live viewing, file
search and playback.

2.3 VIDEO DISPLAY
QT-Series DVRs can use a television or a 19” or larger monitor as a main video display. Certain
models also provide the option of using a high definition display, such as an HDTV. A video
display is not needed for day to day use of your DVR if you are only monitoring it remotely
via a mobile device or using a computer, but one is needed for initial setup. It should also be
noted that, at present, it is not possible to change settings on the DVR itself using the QT
View mobile remote viewing apps and certain settings cannot be changed using the remote
monitoring software on the computer.
CONNECTING A VIDEO DISPLAY
Instructions on connecting a desired video display are included in the Quick Start Poster that
came with your system but are included here for your convenience.
VGA Monitor
Using a standard VGA monitor - the type used with most computers - with your DVR is the
preferred method and the DVR is configured with this in mind. Due to resolution restrictions,
you must use a monitor that has at least a 19” diagonal display. This information is typically
found on the back of the monitor if you are uncertain.
STEP 1. Plug a VGA cable into the port marked “VGA” on the back of the DVR.
STEP 2. Plug the other end of the VGA cable into the similar port on the back of the monitor.
STEP 3. Plug the monitor’s power cable into the surge protector.
PICTURE 2-6
High Definition Television
Some QT-Series DVRs include an HDMI video out port allowing you to use a high definition
television or other display that has an HDMI video input.
STEP 1. Plug an HDMI cable into the “HDMI” port on the back of the DVR.
STEP 2. Plug the other end into the “HDMI” port on the television.
STEP 3. Plug the television’s power cable into a surge protector.
PICTURE 2-7
15
Changing Display Resolution
BASIC
You can adjust the DVR to optimize its output
to best match the capabilities of your monitor
or HD display through the following steps:
STEP 1. Open the Basic window in the
Setup window which is located in the
Main Menu.
STEP 2. Click on the System tab.
STEP 3. Use the Video Output pull-down to
select your desired resolution.
STEP 4. Click on Apply to save your settings
and then click Exit.
STEP 5. Your system will restart. You will
have to re-log in afterwards.

Television
A third option for a video display is any television with an RCA video input. The DVR’s Video
Out port uses a BNC (British Naval Connector) type for coaxial cable. Depending on model,
your DVR may include a BNC-to-RCA cable or adapter. The latter converts the BNC jack to
an RCA port allowing you to connect the DVR to the television using a readily available RCA
cable. If you use a television as your video display, you will need to switch the DVR to use that
as a primary output by following Step 4, below:
PICTURE 2-9
STEP 1. Connect a BNC-to-RCA cable to the “Video Out” port on the back of the DVR.
STEP 2. Plug the RCA end into the “Video In” port on the television.
STEP 3. Plug the television’s power cable into a surge protector.
STEP 4. Press and hold the STOP, STOP/ESC, EXIT, n/ESC or VGA/TV (depending on model)
button on the front of the DVR for 10 seconds or until you hear a beep to indicate that the video
mode has been changed.
16
‘MISSING’ MENU
If you are able to see your camera’s video feeds, but you are unable to see your mouse cursor
or menu, the most likely cause is that your video mode has been changed. In this case, you
need to follow Step 4, above and you should see the cursor and/or menu after the beep.
MULTIPLE MONITORS AND SPOT OUT
Some DVRs include a Spot Out BNC port on their back panel. This allows you to connect a
second video display that will show selected channels in sequence, but will not display the
menu and therefore cannot be used to control the DVR. This is covered in Section 4.2 Live
Configuration. Some users will want to take advantage of the unused video display outputs
(ie; using the BNC Video Out port when the VGA port is being used for the main display. This
“extra” display will mirror whatever is shown on the primary display but it will not show the
menu or cursor. It is not possible to divide channels across two displays.
Loop Out
Some of our larger DVRs, such as the QT518 and QT536 include one or more ports marked
Loop Out. These ports work with the included dongle(s) that split the video signal allowing the
user to connect one monitor per channel. In this case, the menu will not be displayed on any
of these additional monitors.
17
2.4 CAMERAS
CONNECTING CAMERAS
Your DVR uses BNC connectors and ports to ensure quick and secure connections for your
cameras’ video cables. While both conventional analog and digital SDI (Serial Digital Interface)
high definition cameras use this interface, they cannot be connected to a port intended for
the other type because of incompatible signals. It is therefore important to ensure that you are
attempting to connect to the proper port.
STEP 1. Connect the BNC and power leads on the camera to the matching connectors
on the power and video cable.
NOTE: The male power end fits into the matching power lead on the camera.
STEP 2. Connect the BNC connector on the other end of the cable to any of the Video In
ports on the back of the DVR.
STEP 3. Plug one of the power leads on the power splitter (if your camera kit includes one)
into the power lead on the power and video cable. If you are connecting only a single
camera, connect the power lead to the power adapter and skip to Step 6, below.
1
2
3
PICTURE 2-10
STEP 4. Repeat for each camera included with your package to ensure proper
connection and function.
STEP 5. Connect the single end of the power splitter to the power adapter.
STEP 6. Plug the power adapter into a surge protector. You should now see a live video
feed from each of your cameras.

RÉPÉTEZ
PICTURE 2-11
Some camera bundles may contain more than one camera power supply and splitter. Repeat
the steps above as necessary to connect all of your cameras. For bundles containing multiple
types of cameras, make sure to connect to the proper power supply as mixing and matching
may either cause damage or insufficient power to your cameras.
You may now mount your cameras.
18
CAMERA PLACEMENT
When installing your camera, it is important to select a proper site not only for field of view, but for
other considerations as well:
Distance from viewing/recording device. The further the camera is from the DVR
or monitor, the higher the chances of signal degradation. Typical 75Ω Video Cable provides
acceptable signal at distances up to 200’ (60m). At greater distances, UL-Listed shielded RG59
should be used. The camera’s power supply should be located as near to the camera as possible
when the distance exceeds 200’ as the power level will drop over extended distances resulting in
a decrease in video quality.
SDI Cameras require the use of shielded cable regardless of the distance.
Do not place near high voltage wires or other sources of electrical
interference. Electrical interference will degrade the quality of the signal.
Place camera out of reach to avoid damage.
Avoid direct exposure to weather. Do not place the camera where rain or snow will hit
the lens directly nor should the camera be placed so that the sun or bright light shines directly
into the lens. Your camera is weatherproof, but it will not work when submerged in water. Ensure
that all power and video connections are not directly exposed to water and are protected from
the elements.
Indoor cameras should not be used outdoors. Even if they are in a sheltered location,
they can still suffer damage due to humidity, dust and other environmental factors. Each camera
has an Ingress Protection (IP) rating which defines how protected the internal workings of the
camera are from solid objects - such as fingers or bugs - dust and moisture. In an IP rating, there
are two numbers that follow the letters “IP.” The first represents the protection from solids while
the second represents the housing’s protection from moisture. A camera should have a minimum
rating of IP65 for trouble-free use outdoors.
Mounting surface. The mounting surface must be sturdy and able to hold at least five times
the camera’s total weight.
Legal Considerations. Always check state and local laws before installing cameras. (2011
NEC 820.44)
Do not place camera behind a window. If there is a light source behind the camera,
it can cause a reflection in the window that will obscure events on the other side of the glass.
Likewise, the camera’s infrared LEDs will reflect off the glass and shine into the lens, thus
degrading the image.
Light levels should be approximately
the same between camera and target
area. A camera in a brightly-lit area looking
into a shaded area, or vice versa, may produce
inadequate results.
The above are guidelines and the optimal
location for your camera will depend on your
unique circumstances. As a general rule, the
locations highlighted in Green in the picture to
the right indicate the best locations to mount
your camera. Both locations are sheltered from
rain or snow and offer good sight lines to allow
your camera to monitor a wide area.
PICTURE 2-12
19
Because your camera is weatherproof, it requires less protection than weather-resistant cameras
and it can be placed in more exposed locations if needed. Keep in mind that most Q-See
cameras are designed to operate between 14°F to 122°F (-10°C to 50°) with a relative humidity of
up to 95%) and consider wind chill and other environmental factors when selecting your location.
Specialty cameras are also available from Q-See which are able to operate in more extreme
environments.
ADDITIONAL CONSIDERATIONS
Most users prefer to operate their systems with the DVRs recording only when motion is
detected. This provides the most efficient use of the hard drive’s capacity, plus making it easier
for a recording to be located. However, if the a camera’s location has a lot of “environmental”
motion, such as a fan, wind, or the like, you will receive a lot of “false alarms.” Usually, these
events can be avoided by simply adjusting the placement of the camera. Other situations may
require some fine-tuning of your settings. Chapter 8 Alarms, covers these settings in detail,
but some easily avoidable situations are presented below:
TV/Computer Screens. If the camera can see a video screen, it will trigger a motion alarm
any time the screen changes, whether there is a video or simply a screen saver. The screen can
be masked out as described in Section 4.2. You can also reduce the level of motion sensitivity
in specific areas of the screen by following the instructions in Section 8.3.
Fans/Machinery. Motion is motion and if machinery within the camera’s field of view starts
automatically, it will cause an alert. Similarly, if the camera is mounted on a wall with machinery on
the other side that causes it to vibrate, that can also cause it to detect motion. Moving machinery
within the camera’s field of view may be masked off as mentioned above, or motion detection may
be turned off for that channel. If there is another camera that covers access to the area where the
machinery is located, you can set it so that the first camera will only be recording when triggered
by a motion event detected by this second camera. See “Triggers” in described in Section 8.3.
Bugs. An occasional insect flying through the field of view is usually not enough to trigger an
alert. However, some flying insects are attracted to infrared light and will swarm the camera.
This is usually a temporary situation that occurs at only a certain time of the year. Lighting the
area with yellow “bug light” of sufficient brightness can keep the camera operating in daylight
mode and keep the infrared LEDs turned off. A second solution is to set the channel to record all
the time, and turn motion detection off at night until “bug season” is over. Reducing the motion
sensitivity (Section 8.3) can also reduce alerts as can using another camera to trigger recording
as described above.
Additionally, keep your cameras clear of spider webs as the movement of the webs due to wind
or critters in the web will cause an alert. The reflection of the infrared off the webs and back into
the camera will also reduce the night vision range.
Snow/Rain. As with bugs, this is usually a seaonal event and may require motion detection to be
temporarily disabled to avoid false alarms. However, positioning the camera further under shelter,
such as closer to the wall and away from the edge of the eaves, can make the rain or snow too
small for the camera to notice. Adjusting motion sensitivity may also help in some situations.

960H CAMERAS
A new standard for analog video cameras, 960H increases the width of the image from D1’s
720x480 pixels to 960x480 pixels. When connected to a DVR with 960H capability, this allows
the camera to take advantage of the wider aspect ratios of most monitors and HD screens to
deliver a wider, clearer image, without the distortion caused by stretching to fit the screen. This is
demonstrated in the image below:
Standard analog camera image stretched to fit
HD aspect ratio.

PICTURE 2-13
You can use 960H cameras with analog DVRs that don’t have that technology, but the DVR will be
unable take full advantage of the capabilities for best results.

4.4 SCHEDULE CONFIGURATION
Your DVR is configured to record whenever motion is detected. If this is your desired setting
then you will not need to make any changes. However, you may configure each channel to
record at specific times based on time of day, motion detection or other sensor input. There
are three tabs; Schedule, Motion and Sensor
Schedule Tab
The schedule for automatic recording can be set either of two ways.
1. By highlighting individual hours for specific
days by using the pencil tool in the upper
right of the window. The adjacent eraser
tool removes the highlighting in a block.
Double click on either the pencil or eraser
tool to turn them off. Settings can be
copied and applied to any or all of the
channels and to any other day.
PICTURE 4-19
2. Blocks of time to be recorded can also
be set up by double clicking on a field
adjacent to a day. Multiple schedules can
be created and saved with start and stop
times down to the minute. These can then
be applied to multiple days and cameras.
PICTURE 4-20
Schedules made in one mode can be altered
in another mode.
Motion Tab
Motion detected during the highlighted hours will cause the DVR to start recording. Setup is
similar to that used in Schedule above. The default mode is for 24/7.
PICTURE 4-21
Sensor Tab
This enables the DVR to record based on input from other sensors connected to the DVR. Like
motion detection, it is default scheduled to be able to record at any time. It is also configured
in the same manner as explained under Schedule.
PICTURE 4-22

4.5 NETWORK CONFIGURATION
The Network Configuration window is used to control how your DVR works in a networked
environment. This section offers a brief overview of how to set up your DVR so that it can be
remotely monitored from another computer on your network, over the Internet or from mobile
wireless devices. Full, in-depth instructions on the functions and settings available in this
window are presented in the Remote Monitoring Guide which is on the disk that came with
your system or which can be downloaded from our website at www.Q-See.com/Support.
The four tabs in this window are Network, Sub-Stream, Email and Other Settings. If you
will only be monitoring the DVR from another computer on your network, you will only need to
use the first three tabs.
It is important that your DVR is connected to your network router and that the router is
powered on before proceeding.
This window displays the information on the DVR’s local network and Internet addresses
which will allow you to access the DVR on a network. As discussed in the Remote Monitoring
Guide, you will use the local network address to access your system from the same wireless
or intranet network that the DVR is connected to. When you are outside of that area, you will
use the Internet address shown (see below) or the DDNS address that you will set up.
IMPORTANT! The majority of routers available on the market since 2008 have
Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) capability, which allows the DVR to connect
automatically to the network. Consult the Quick Networking Poster or the
Remote Monitoring Guide before changing Network settings.

HTTP Port – This is the port the DVR will
use to communicate through the
router. When accessing the DVR

NOTE! The default value is 85. If port 85 is already occupied by another device
on the network, then another port will need to be selected. Choose another
number in the same range; 81-89. In this case, you will have to add the port to
the IP address when entering it into the Internet Explorer window. For example,
if the port is now 82, then you will need to enter http://88.116.0.25:82
Obtain IP Address Automatically – Clicking this box will obtain the IP address, subnet mask,
and gateway IP from the router.
PPPOE – Selecting this enables Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet (PPPoE) which allows
you to directly connect your DVR to the Internet through your modem. Do not use this
unless you are connected to a modem instead of a router. Contact your ISP for your
account information including user name and password. The TEST button will verify
that your information is correct.

SUBSTREAM
The substream is the data that is sent to remote monitoring devices. Due to bandwidth
concerns, these data streams are generally smaller than those sent directly to the DVR itself.
These streams run in parallel with the main stream sent to the hard drive and they do not
affect each other.
Substream settings are configured in the
same manner as that used for the primary
stream settings in the Record Bitrate
tab in Section 4.3 Certain settings will be
grayed out and cannot be changed due to
throughput concerns. The definitions are
repeated for your convenience:

video but may not be possible due to bandwidth.
Encode
VBR, CBR
Variable Bit Rate versus Constant Bit Rate. VBR provides
better image quality for video with motion in it, but at the
expense of a larger file size.
Quality
Lowest
– Highest
Only available when VBR is selected. The higher the
quality, the more drive space required. CBR’s default
setting is for higher quality.
Max Bitrate
256-2084kbps
This sets the maximum bitrate that each camera will
record at with VBR encoding selected.
40
EMAIL
This tab allows you to set how your DVR will send out e-mail alerts. You will be able to send
e-mail alerts to three addresses.
NOTE! Depending upon your settings, the system can generate a lot of e-mail
alerts. For that reason, we recommend setting up a dedicated e-mail address
specifically for the system to send alert notices. If you do not have your own
e-mail system (such as a corporate mail server) you should consider using a
free e-mail provider. However, because many free e-mail services allow only
a limited amount of e-mail traffic we specifically recommend using Google’s
Gmail service with its higher limit. Similarly, you will want the alert emails to go to a different
account than the one sending them. This will ease your management of these alerts and help
keep your mail account from overflowing.
If you do not have your own e-mail system, please set up a free account which the DVR can
use to send out alerts before proceeding.
For the example below, we will use Gmail. The settings can be found under Options when
logged into your Gmail account.
Clicking on any of the fields will bring up the virtual keyboard allowing you to enter the data.
The virtual keyboard is capable of handling upper and lower case letters as well as numbers
and symbols. Click the ENTER button to enter your input or ESC to exit the field without
applying any changes.
SMTP Server: smtp.gmail.com
Port: 465 (standard port for Gmail - others
may vary)
SSL Check: You will need to select this for
Gmail. Other ISPs may vary.
Send Address: Enter your new address. This
will appear on alert emails sent from
the DVR
Password: Enter the password you created
for this account. Remember, it will be
case-sensitive.
Receive Addresses: You may set up to three
e-mail addresses to receive alerts. It
is strongly advised that you do not
use the same address that the DVR is
using to send alerts.
Advanced
PICTURE 4-25
Attaching Image Amount: The alert emails can include up to three images
Snap Time Interval: The interval of the images can range from every second to every five
seconds.
41
DDNS - DYNAMIC IP ADDRESSES
Commercial ISPs provide their customers with dynamic addresses (IP numbers). These
numbers can change from time to time depending upon your service provider. When they do,
you will lose the ability to remotely access your DVR from your mobile phone or other out-ofnetwork device. To prevent this from happening, we recommend using a Dynamic Domain
Name Service (DDNS). This will give you a domain name that can be linked to your IP address
and will automatically – and invisibly – forward remote connections to your network when the
IP address changes.
Q-See offers DDNS for free at MyQ-See.com. Create a domain name, user name and
password before proceeding. DynDNS.com also offers a similar free service. This is covered
in-depth in the Remote Monitoring Guide.
Select the box in the DDNS field to enable
DDNS. You will then enter the user name,
domain name and password you created into
the appropriate fields. You can also select
the interval at which the DDNS checks to
see whether your IP address has changed.
Intervals range from every 30 minutes to once
a day.

onto the DVR.
PICTURE 4-31
BLOCK/ALLOW LIST
From here, an authorized user can control which computer users are allowed to access the
DVR.
PICTURE 4-32
The Block List is used to deny access to remote computers within a certain IP address
segment.
The Allow List is used to permit access by users from select IP address segments.
EXAMPLE: You wish to block access to the DVR from computer users within the IP address
segment ranging from 196.168.000.002 to 196.168.000.004. Select the Block button and
then enter the first segment in the IP From field and the last address within the segment in

BACKUP
CHAPTER 5
This DVR supports backing up files to USB flash drives, USB hard drives and USB DVD
burners through the USB port on the front panel. Remote backups can be performed over the
Internet. Refer to Section 2.4 Remote Backup in the Remote Monitoring Guide.
NOTE! External USB hard drives used for backing up data will need to be
in the FAT32 format. Most new drives will need to be reformatted before use
with this DVR.
FORMATTING A USB DRIVE IN FAT32
To format a USB flash drive with FAT32, plug it into a PC running Windows XP or later. Go
to My Computer to locate the drive’s icon. Right click on it and select Format in the list of
available options. Select FAT32 and check the box marked Quick Format before clicking
Start.
For USB drives over 32GB in size, you should use a FAT32 format utility such as those
available through CNET.com.
BACKING UP A FILE
Selecting BACKUP in the Main Menu will open the Backup configuration window.
The search for files to backup is much like the method used to search for files to play back as

playback software. If you choose the DVR format, you need to select the Desktop Player
option (see Picture 5-2) as well. This will save a stand-alone playback program in a separate
folder labeled Video Play on the same drive.
Clicking on the Start button will begin the backup and the progress bar will display the
progress.
PLAYING BACK A VIDEO FILE ON A COMPUTER
Windows PC - You may play AVI formatted files using Windows Media Player, QuickTime,
DIVXplayer or other media players. The files can be opened and played in a similar manner
to any other media file. You may need to download and install the K-Lite Codec as described
above.
The Superplay.msi program is a PC-only application and is saved onto the same drive as
video files when the Backup Player option is selected. Launch the software in the normal
manner and then click on Open Path and navigate to the folder containing the video files and
select the file you wish to play back.
Apple Macintosh - At this time, you must use the Remote Backup feature to save the file
to your computer through the remote viewing software. See Section 2.4 of the Remote
Monitoring Guide for instructions on this process.
You MUST select the AVI format when backing up the video file for playback on a Mac
computer. You can use the QuickTime player or other video player and open the video file in
the normal manner.
IMPORTANT CONSIDERATIONS
Audio
If you have recorded audio with the video file that you wish to back up, you MUST select the
.DVR format for your file. You will also need to ensure that the box next to Desktop Player is
selected as well. If you are sharing the video with anyone, such as law enforcement, the player
will allow them to hear the audio along with seeing the video. You may also use the player to
convert the file to the more conventional .AVI format and the audio tracks will be included in
the video. Please note that files backed up via a Macintosh computer will not retain audio.
Locking the file
In situations where the video file is to be used as evidence, we recommend locking the file
first as described in Section 4.8 File Search, Playback and Management. This can be
done either locally on the DVR, or remotely through your mobile device or computer. Please
see the Remote Monitoring Guide for instructions on performing this function away from
the DVR. Once it has been locked, it cannot be erased or overwritten unless the entire hard
drive is reformatted.

6.4 FIRMWARE UPGRADE
This window will display firmware updates that are loaded on a USB flash drive in the front
USB port.
PICTURE 6-11
Firmware upgrades are available from Q-See at www.Q-See.com/Support and may be
found by looking up your specific model. Firmware should only be upgraded to fix a specific
problem or add features as ongoing development may result in features being removed.
The firmware download should be loaded onto an empty USB flash drive from the
downloading computer and then transferred to the DVR using a USB port.
IMPORTANT! Please make note of your settings before updating the
firmware on a QT426 or QT446 as the upgrade process will restore factory
defaults. Other models will retain their user settings.
NOTE! While a Macintosh computer can read and write to a drive in the
FAT32 format, it cannot reformat a USB flash drive to that standard. We
suggest that you use a PC to reformat your USB flash drive to FAT32 and it is
recommended that you download firmware updates on a PC. Beginning with
version 3.1.71, you can use the Upgrade feature in the Remote Monitoring
software (see Section 2.5 of the Remote Monitoring Guide) to upgrade
without a USB flash drive.
WARNING! Updating the firmware incorrectly or using the wrong update
can permanently damage the chipset on the DVR and render it unusable.
Updates are written to either resolve issues or add features to the DVR. If you
are not experiencing performance issues or do not need a feature added by
the update, we recommend not running the update.
54
6.5 LOGOFF
Logging out of the DVR is recommended when there are multiple users or when physical
access to the DVR is not restricted. Clicking on the Logoff icon will bring up a window asking
for confirmation.
After logging off, a user can log back in by clicking on the Menu icon and entering their user
name and password.
6.6 SHUT DOWN
This is a “soft power down” of the DVR. It shuts down the firmware and hard drive, but does
not power down the DVR itself.
WARNING! It is vital that the DVR be instructed to shut down using the Shut
Down menu option prior to unplugging the device in order to avoid damaging
the firmware or hard drive itself.

PAN/TILT/ZOOM CAMERAS
CHAPTER 7
7.1 CONNECTING A PTZ CAMERA
Many QT-Series DVRs can support one or more Pan/Tilt/Zoom, or PTZ cameras. These
cameras connect to the DVR through the same ports as a conventional camera, but the
control wires connect through the RS485 block on the back of the DVR. Picture 7-1, below,
is only a representation and your actual connector may look different. Please consult Chapter
2 Connections and Controls to find the diagram representing your model for the location
of your connector block.
The RS485 connector uses a single-direction protocol meaning that it can send commands
out to the camera(s) but not receive any data back from the unit meaning that video images
will be delivered through the video cable as with any other camera.
The DVR is set by default for RS485 to be disabled for each channel. Therefore, PTZ settings
must be enabled before PTZ cameras can be utilized. This system supports 13 of the most
common protocols including Pelco-D and Pelco-P.
When connecting a PTZ camera, the following should be taken into account:
• The 485 port of this DVR cannot parallel connect with the 485 port of another device
• The voltage between the A and B lines of the camera should be less than 5V.
RS-485
STEP 1. The data cable from the PTZ
camera must be connected to
the ports highlighted in Picture
7-1. Multiple PTZ cameras can
be connected to this port, but you
may require an expander port to do
so. You may also daisy chain the
cameras.
STEP 2. Connect the other end of
the cable to the proper pins in the
connector on the camera
STEP 3. Connect the camera video and
power cables as you would any other
camera.

ALARMS
CHAPTER 8
Many QT Series DVRs feature connections for external alarms – both input and output. Please
consult Chapter 2 Connections and Controls to determine whether your model includes
this feature and where the connection block is located. The alarm connector block shown in
Picture 8-1 is only a representation and your actual connector may look different.
When an event is detected the system can notify local users or send notification to a
monitoring service. At the same time, the system can accept signals from motion detectors,
smoke detectors or other alarms and begin recording based on that input and your settings.
You will need to have the manual for your alarm(s) handy to ensure the proper settings within
the DVR.
ALARM IN
8.1 ALARM INPUT
When attaching alarms, the following criteria
must be met:
1. The alarm input must be grounded.
2. A grounding signal is required for the
alarm input
3. When connecting the DVR to another
device - including another DVR - through
the alarm input, a relay should be used to
separate them.

8.3 ALARM CONFIGURATION
Alarm configuration allows the DVR to begin recording based on input from other remote
sensors such as infrared motion detectors or contact alarms which are connected to it.
There are five submenus; Sensor, Motion, Video Loss, Other, and Alarm Out.
SENSOR
In this window you can setup optional external sensors to cause the DVR to begin recording.
There are three tabs in this window: Basic, Alarm Handling and Schedule.
Basic Tab
This allows you to enable the input from
attached sensors. You can also identify the
sensors by name for ease in determining
location.
Set the alarm type according to whether the
alarm is NO (Normally Open) or NC (Normally
Closed). See your alarm’s manual for details.
Alarms can be individually configured or
globally set using the All button.
PICTURE 8-3
Alarm Handling Tab
Configure how you want the DVR to handle
the input from an activated alarm. Each
sensor input can be set to launch individual
sequences of action or they may be globally
set through the All button to have the same
results.
Hold Time: determines the time allowed
between consecutive alarm events.
If the alarm is triggered again within
this time, it will be treated as a single
event and the DVR will continue
recording before stopping.
PICTURE 8-4
Trigger: This is what the DVR will do once
activated by an alarm. Selecting
Setting will open a new window with
three tabs; Alarm, To Record, To
PTZ
Alarm allows you to set whether a
buzzer will sound, which camera (if
any) will display in full screen mode,
whether an e-mail will be sent and
whether a signal will be sent via the
ALARM OUT port.
PICTURE 8-5
63
To Record allows you to determine which cameras will begin recording. Cameras can
be set to record individually, in blocks, or all cameras can be activated.
To PTZ activates preset, cruise or track functions on selected Pan-Tilt-Zoom
cameras. Depending on your model of PTZ camera, one of up to 128 pre-set actions
can be engaged. Check your camera’s manual for details.
Schedule Tab
Set by default to always on, the schedule can be altered in the same manner as that used in
Schedule in SECTION 4.4.
PICTURE 8-6
MOTION
Motion Tab
As with the Alarm function above, it incorporates hold time and can trigger procedures.
Select which cameras you wish to start recording on motion detection. Set the holding time
which determines the length of time the cameras continue recording after motion stops.
In the Trigger setting, you can set multiple
channels to record when motion is detected
by a camera that has been set to activate
upon motion detection.
For example: If Camera 1 detects motion,
you can have it trigger Cameras 2 and 3 to
begin recording as well.
PICTURE 8-7
In addition, the user can set the sensitivity of certain areas within the field of view by clicking
on the Select button selecting the Area field for the respective camera.
Specific areas can be made sensitive by
applying a blue grid to the desired section of
the screen. The blue grid can be applied to
the entire screen – signifying that the entire
field of view is sensitive - by clicking on
the star button. The trash can button will
remove the grid completely. Click and drag
with the mouse on the screen to draw or
erase the grid in select areas.
Sensitivity: 6
PICTURE 8-8
As sensitivity is influenced by color and light level, you can adjust its values according to your
specific conditions. The default value is “4.” A setting of “8” is most sensitive while a setting of
“1” is minimally sensitive.
Right-clicking in the screen will show or hide the control menu at the bottom of the screen.
64
Test your settings by moving something
or someone through the grid area in the
camera’s view. Motion should not be detected
outside of this area but you should see a
yellow humanoid figure appear in the screen
once the DVR detects movement within the
grid. Removing the grid where there is a flag
or trees that frequently move in the wind will
prevent false alerts. Click on the Disk button
to save your settings before exiting the setup
process by clicking on the X button.
Sensitivity: 6
PICTURE 8-9
Schedule Tab
This is also set to be on all the time by default and it can be adjusted in the same manner as
the Schedule configuration in SECTION 4.4.
PICTURE 8-10
VIDEO LOSS
In the event that signal is lost by one camera, others can be activated to record while
additional devices can also be triggered.
Like the Trigger tab in the Alarm Handling
section of the Sensor menu, you can select
the events that you wish to occur in the
event that a video input is lost. Both Alarms
and PTZ events can be scheduled as in the
Sensor menu above.
PICTURE 8-11
OTHER ALARM
In this menu you can set the DVR to alert you to a full Hard Drive, IP Conflict on the network or
a Disconnection.
You can set the response as well as at what
threshold of remaining disk space you wish to
be alerted.
PICTURE 8-12
65
ALARM OUT
Set how the alarms are handled and transmitted in this window. This controls any device
attached to the ALARM OUT port on the back of the DVR. There are three tabs; Alarm Out,
Schedule and Buzzer.
Alarm Out Tab
You can set the relay alarm out name as well as the hold time. Hold time is the interval
between consecutive alarm activations so multiple events within the interval will not cause the
alarm to sound again.
PICTURE 8-13
Schedule Tab
The default setting is for the ALARM OUT to be active all the time, but this can be changed
to meet your particular requirements in a similar manner to Schedule in SECTION 4.4.
Buzzer Tab
As with the Alarm Out hold time, the internal buzzer can be enabled and given a hold time.
66
HARD DISK DRIVE
CHAPTER 9
Your DVR uses a standard desktop or 3.5” SATA (Serial Advanced Technology Attachment)
hard disk drive and will support drives up to 3TB (terabytes). These drives are the current
industry standard and may be purchased wherever computer parts are sold. Depending on
where you purchased your DVR, your hard drive may already be installed. But, we recognize
that you may wish to upgrade or replace your drive in the future so this DVR is designed
to make installation and replacement easy for the average user. An A/V-rated drive is
recommended for optimal performance.
It should be noted that while this is the only user-serviceable part within the case besides the
battery and you will not void your warranty by installing or upgrading your hard disk drive, care
must be taken to avoid damage to the other components within the case. Such damage will
not be covered.
WARNING! ELECTRIC SHOCK RISK!
The DVR MUST be unplugged from all power sources as well as from
the cameras before opening the case. Failure to do so can result in
damage to the DVR or its components as well as injury or death.
9.1 INSTALLATION/REMOVAL
It is strongly advised against opening the case when atmospheric conditions present the risk
of static discharge which can damage electronic components.
Whether installing the drive for the first time or removing the old one to install a new one, the
steps are largely the same:
STEP 1. Disconnect the DVR from the power source as well as any other connections.
STEP 2. Remove screws (the number will vary depending on your model) from the side
and rear of your DVR as indicated in Picture 9-1

9.2 CALCULATING THE RECORDING CAPACITY OF A HARD DRIVE
While the physical data capacity of a hard drive is fixed, how much video you can record upon
it depends on your recording configurations. Higher quality recordings will take up more space
on the drive and setting the DVR to record for more frequently will fill it up more rapidly.
To determine the optimal capacity for your purposes, the chart below to estimate the size of
hard drive that you’ll need.

The formula for calculating the required disk space is:
Total Recording Capacity = Used space per hour (MB/h) x Recording time (hour) x
number of channels
Example: A customer is using the NTSC format (30 frames per second), CIF resolution
with video quality set to Lowest and a total of 16 Channels. He wants the unit to record
continuously for a month. Therefore, the calculation will look like this:
56(MB/h), x 24 (hours/day) x 30 (days) x 16 (channels) = 645,120MB or 650GB
Installing a 750GB SATA hard drive should provide enough space for one month’s continuous
recording time at those settings.

A.3 RACK MOUNTING
The QT446, QT4332, QT4532, QT518, QT5116 and QT536 all use 2U cases and include
brackets and screws allowing them to be secured in a standard server rack or server cabinet.
These DVRs are designed for horizontal mounting only.
The DVR must rest on a shelf sufficient to hold its weight. The included mounting brackets are
only intended to keep the system from shifting and they are not sufficient to suspend the DVR
alone. You will also need to provide bolts to attach the brackets to the rack.
Two mounting brackets and four screws
are contained in the accessory box that
accompanied your DVR. Some brackets will
have three holes but only two screws are
required to mount the bracket to the DVR.
The flanges to secure the DVR to the rack
should be towards the front.
The DVR must have sufficient support when
installed. The brackets are only to keep the
DVR from moving. Ensure that all four holes
on the two mounting brackets line up with
holes in the rack.
If you will have limited access to the back
of the DVR, it is best to make sure that all
camera and other cable connections on the
back of the DVR are secure before bolting
the brackets to the rack.
