Event Camera Group Recording:
This feature allows users to setup a recording rule so when a single camera has an event triggered, multiple
cameras will start recording. There are a total of four (4) groups you can setup (Group A~D). Each camera can be
added to one group only. The group’s recording parameters will follow that of the first camera added to the group.
For example, if CH 4 was added first to Group B, then all other cameras in Group B will follow CH4’s recording
settings for events.
To setup:
1.
Go to the master channel, the one you want to use as the recording guide for all other cameras in the group.
2. Under the GROUP REC. drop-down, select the group you want to add the camera to (For example, GROUP
A).
3.
Go to the next camera you want to add to this group. Select the same group (GROUP A) from the GROUP
REC. drop-down.
4.
Click SAVE. Repeat with all other cameras you want to add to that group.
Below is an example how Event Camera Group Recording works:
Recording Scenario #1 ( CH1,2 and 3 is GROUP A)
CH1- Motion Recording , CH2-Sensor Recording, CH3- Continuous Recording. CH2 & CH3 will follow CH1’s
(Master CH) recording schedule.
When one of the camera detects motion, all 3 cameras in the group will start recording as motion (CH1’s settings).
NOTE
Setting up PANIC recording for a camera in a group will trigger panic recording for all channels of the
DVR.
If the master camera’s settings are set via the quick setup mode, all other cameras in the group will follow
the same quick setup mode schedule if an event is detected.
The Event Camera Group recordings work on Sensor and Motion detections only..
4.2.2 Audio
Users can select the audio input and output during live display and match the audio input to a designated channel.

6 APPENDIX : NETWORK SETUP FOR EXTERNAL
USAGE
Please note: The following information are general guidelines. These may vary by network and router specifications.
Contact your Network Administrator or Internet Service Provider for additional information.
If you are not connecting to your DVR from within the same network, you will have to perform port forwarding on
your router to access the DVR externally, via the internet.
1.1 In the [Network] menu set “Network Type” to [Dynamic IP] and click [IP DETECT]. The system will automatically
detect the correct settings for the network where the DVR is installed.
1.2 Once the system generates all the information based on your network requirements, change the Network Type to
Static and save all the changes as static.
For additional information, and to obtain a proper IP address, contact your network administrator or Internet
Service Provider.
1.3 Some internet service providers block port 80 in their customer's routers. Changing the web port number to 81 or
82 is recommended.
1.4
Access your router by entering its external IP address in your web browser. This information can be found by
running an ipconfig command on your computer's Command Prompt. The router's external IP address is the
GATEWAY address.
1.5 Check the DHCP settings in your router and setup the DVR for external connections by performing port
forwarding. It is highly recommended that you contact your Network Administrator for more information and proper
handling of your router. Port forwarding will tell the router that all data received via those specific ports, will be
redirected to the DVR. For the VMAX A1, you will need to port forward the two following ports:
a.
Network Port: 81 or 82 (Default was 80)
1.6
Visit www.portforward.com for additional information on port forwarding for specific routers.
1.7
Visit www.yougetsignal.com to test whether the ports have been properly opened. Allow up to five (5) minutes
for the router to update.
1.8
Once the router settings have been configured, open an internet explorer page and enter your router's external
IP address:DVR's port number (for example: 72.243.193.215:81).
63 | Full HD Digital Video Recorder
2. In DDNS menu, "V" check to Use DDNS and write Host Name and clisk the Start.
After DDNS Success, ""hostname.dwddns.net" " domain is created.
*If there is DDNS failure, please check the Network state.
*TCP/IP Port of DDNS is selectable to 80 or 8245.
3. After creation of the domain, check it by Ping test by DOS CMD.
*If there is no host found, check the Network state and DDNS register page.
4. Set port forwarding in Router.
ex) Linksys
