Local Display NVR vs. Non-Local Display NVR
For NVR with CPU supporting local display, Video Storage Server (VSS) and Video Management Solutions (VMS)
are pre-installed. Startup the NVR system and VSS & VMS will automatically startup as well.
For NVR requiring Live video display at a different PC, only Video Storage Server (VSS) will be pre-installed. Startup
the NVR system and VSS will automatically startup as well. The following sections with VMS contents do not apply
to the non-local display NVR. Users can install and operate VMS at a different PC according to the User’s Manual of
VMS.
NOTE: If users turn on the Windows Firewall, please add VSS and VMS to the exception list of the Windows
Firewall to avoid them from being block by the firewall.
NOTE: If users already have any familiar backend software other than VSS, please refer to the software’s
manual for installation and operation.
Auto Connection of VSS and VMS
Refer to the following for details of auto connection and auto setting of VSS and CMS.
 VSS and VMS will be automatically login with the username “admin” and the password “1234”.
 IP cameras connected via the PoE ports are plug-and-play. They will be automatically added to the start group of
VSS.
 The <Schedule Record> setting will be unavailable. VSS is preset to record all sites at all times.

VMS will automatically add VSS as the start group and videos from the connected IP cameras will be
automatically retrieved and displayed.


Auto HDD Management
The Auto HDD Management function of VSS helps to automatically add all connected HDDs, except the C drive, as
the storage folders of the recorded videos. If the system has detected any portable HDD at any time, it will be added
to the folder list as well. Click on the <Setting> button and select the <File Path> tab to see the folder list. Check the
box in front of <Hard Disk Auto Detection> to enable or disable this function.
NOTE: WD RED and WD Se series HDDs are recommended for the Windows Based NVR.
Add More IP Camera Sites
If any PoE port is not connected to IP cameras, users can add IP camera connections via internet. Follow the steps
below.
 Click on the <Setting> button. Right click on <New Group> in the site tree and select <Add a site> to add another
connected IP camera. Input the IP address of the IP camera or find it via <Device Search>. Input the username
and password to complete adding the IP camera site.
 Alternatively, users can also right click on <New Group> in the site tree and select <Add sites…> to add multiple
IP camera sites at once. Press and hold the “Ctrl” key to select IP cameras. Then input username and password
for each site
 Enable auto streaming configuration for the added IP cameras.
 Click on <OK> at the bottom to save the setting.

Default IP Addresses for IP Cameras and VSS
The connected IP cameras will each be automatically assigned a unique IP address, for connection from other
devices in the same local area network. The default IP address for CH1 is 192.168.50.11; for CH2 is
192.168.50.12; and so on. Note that the network setting of the IP cameras need to be set to DHCP or the NVR will
not be able to assign the default IP addresses to them.
In the mean time, VSS also has a default IP for LAN connection, which is 192.168.50.27 for 16CH models and
192.168.50.35 for 24CH models. This IP address can be found when users check <Control Panel>  <Network and
Sharing Center>  <Local Area Connection>  <Details>.
NOTE: The IP address of the VSS for WAN connection can be found via <Control Panel>  <Network and
Sharing Center>  <Local Area Network 3>  <Details>.

NVR Remote and Mobile Apps Support
Users can also connect to VSS via NVR Remote, the remote monitoring software, and/or Apps such as NetGuard /
NetGuardHD (iOS) or DroidGuard / DroidGuardHD (Android) on portable handy devices. After VSS is connected,
users can view both Live / Playback videos and can search the video database. Refer to the User’s Manual of VSS
and the App’s Help info for detailed description.
