Important Safeguards
In addition to the careful attention devoted to quality standards in the manufacturing process of
your video product, safety is a major factor in the design of every instrument. However, safety is
your responsibility too. This sheet lists important information that will help to assure your
enjoyment and proper use of the video product and accessory equipment. Please read them
carefully before operating and using your video product.
Installation
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
Read and Follow Instructions - All the safety and
operating instructions should be read before the
video product is operated. Follow all operating
instructions.
Retain Instructions - The safety and operating
instructions should be retained for future reference.
Heed Warnings - Comply with all warnings on the
video product and in the operating instructions.
Polarization - Do not defeat the
safety purpose of the polarized or
grounding-type plug.
A polarized plug has two blades
with one wider than the other.
A grounding type plug has two
blades and a third grounding prong.
The wide blade or the third prong
are provided for your safety.
If the provided plug does not fit into your outlet,
consult an electrician for replacement of the
obsolete outlet.
Power Sources - This video product should be
operated only from the type of power source
indicated on the marking label. If you are not sure of
the type of power supply to your location, consult
your video dealer or local power company. For video
products intended to operate from battery power, or
other sources, refer to the operating instructions.
Overloading - Do not overload wall outlets of
extension cords as this can result in the risk of fire
or electric shock. Overloaded AC outlets, extension
cords, frayed power cords, damaged or cracked wire
insulation, and broken plugs are dangerous. They
may result in a shock or fire hazard. Periodically
examine the cord, and if its appearance indicates
damage or deteriorated insulation, have it replaced
by your service technician.
Power Cord Protection - Power supply cords should
be routed so that they are not likely to be walked on
or pinched by items placed upon or against them,
paying particular attention to cords at plugs,
convenience receptacles, and the point where they
exit from the video product.
8.
Ventilation - Slots and openings in the case are
provided for ventilation to ensure reliable operation
of the video product and to protect it from
overheating. These openings must not be blocked or
covered. The openings should never be blocked by
placing the video equipment on a bed, sofa, rug, or
other similar surface. This video product should
never be placed near or over a radiator or heat
register. This video product should not be placed in a
built-in installation such as a bookcase or rack
unless proper ventilation is provided or the video
product manufacturer’s instructions have been
followed.
9. Attachments - Do not use attachments unless
recommended by the video product manufacturer as
they may cause a hazard.
10. Camera Extension Cables – Check the rating of
your extension cable(s) to verify compliance with
your local authority regulations prior to installation.
11. Water and Moisture - Do not use this video product
near water. For example, near a bath tub, wash
bowl, kitchen sink or laundry tub, in a wet
basement, near a swimming pool and the like.
Caution: Maintain electrical safety. Powerline
operated equipment or accessories connected to
this unit should bear the UL listing mark of CSA
certification mark on the accessory itself and should
not be modified so as to defeat the safety features.
This will help avoid any potential hazard from
electrical shock or fire. If in doubt, contact qualified
service personnel.
12. Accessories - Do not place this
video equipment on an unstable
cart, stand, tripod, or table. The
video equipment may fall, causing
serious damage to the video
product. Use this video product
only with a cart, stand, tripod,
bracket, or table recommended by the
manufacturer or sold with the video product. Any
mounting of the product should follow the
manufacturer’s instructions and use a mounting
accessory recommended by the manufacturer.
iii
Service
Use
13. Servicing - Do not attempt to service this video
equipment yourself as opening or removing covers
may expose you to dangerous voltage or other
hazards. Refer all servicing to qualified service
personnel.
14. Conditions Requiring Service - Unplug this video
product from the wall outlet and refer servicing to
qualified service personnel under the following
conditions:
• When the power supply cord or plug is damaged.
19. Cleaning - Unplug the video product from the wall
outlet before cleaning. Do not use liquid cleaners or
aerosol cleaners. Use a damp cloth for cleaning.
20. Product and Cart Combination - Video and cart
combination should be moved with care. Quick
stops, excessive force, and uneven surfaces may
cause the video product and car combination to
overturn.
21. Object and Liquid Entry - Never push objects for
any kind into this video product through openings as
they may touch dangerous voltage points or
“short-out” parts that could result in a fire or
electric shock. Never spill liquid of any kind on the
video product.
22. Lightning - For added protection for this video
product during a lightning storm, or when it is left
unattended and unused for long periods of time,
unplug it from the wall outlet and disconnect the
antenna or cable system. This will prevent damage
to the video product due to lightning and power line
surges.
• If liquid has been spilled or objects have fallen into
the video product.
• If the video product has been exposed to rain or
water.
• If the video product does not operate normally by
following the operating instructions. Adjust only
those controls that are covered by the operating
instructions. Improper adjustment of other controls
may result in damage and will often require
extensive work by a qualified technician to restore
the video product to its normal operation.
• If the video product has been dropped or the cabinet
has been damaged.
• When the video product exhibits a distinct change
in performance. This indicates a need for service.
15. Replacement Parts - When replacement parts are
required, have the service technician verify that the
replacements used have the same safety
characteristics as the original parts. Use of
replacements specified by the video product
manufacturer can prevent fire, electric shock or
other hazards.
16. Safety Check - Upon completion of any service or
repairs to this video product, ask the service
technician to perform safety checks recommended
by the manufacturer to determine that the video
product is in safe operating condition.
17. Wall or Ceiling Mounting - The cameras provided
with this system should be mounted to a wall or
ceiling only as instructed in this guide, using the
provided mounting brackets.
18. Heat - The product should be situated away from
heat sources such as radiators, heat registers,
stoves, or other products (including amplifiers) that
produce heat.

Installing the Software
HARD DRIVE SETUP SCENARIOS
During installation, the software will ask
you to create a directory to store your
videos. Depending on your computer’s
hard drive setup, you will need to select
your save directory accordingly.
Your computer may have:
A hard drive with a recovery partition (ie. C drive and D drive with Recovery Software)
If you have a recovery partition, it is recommended to set your C drive as the primary video storage
location. The "recovery" partition is reserved for the operating system, and does not have
adequate space to store your surveillance videos.
A single hard drive (ie. C drive only)
If you only have a single hard drive without a partition, then set your C drive as your storage
directory for the surveillance videos.
A hard drive with a partition (ie. C and D drive)
If you have a second partition in your hard drive (ie. a D drive with ample space (for example,
100GB and above), it is recommended to set your partition as the storage directory for the
surveillance videos. This reduces the chance of losing stored videos if your main hard drive (ie. C
drive) fails.
A hard drive with an external hard drive (ie. C drive + external hd)
If you have an external hard drive, you can set your external hard drive as your storage directory.
It is recommended that you do not remove the external hard drive during recording or playback.

Backup Scenarios
SCENARIO A: BACKING UP VIDEO DURING A SPECIFIED TIME
You may only want to back up your video during a specific time to conserve your storage space.
For example, a shop owner may want to back up the video content of the business between 9:00am
to 6:00pm to monitor the employees and the shop.
The shop owner also wants to back up video data every 2 days. The shop owner also wants to start
the back up on 11:00 pm on December 24th during the holiday break.

content between 9:00am and 6:00pm. Since the shop owner wanted the back up to take place
every 2 days, on December 26, at 11:00pm, the system copies all the backup videos to the specified
directory.
The system will continue to back up data every 2 days on an endless loop.

Appendix B: Auto Port Forwarding Wizard
• The "Possible 1st Router" refers to the router directly connected to your system. This is the
router that requires the port forward information.
• The "Possible 2nd Router" refers to the router immediate to the internet connection. This is
the router that requires you to configure a DMZ host connection.
Scenario A: Router/Modem combination + Router
• You may have a router/modem combination, with a second router in your network.
Scenario B: Multiple Routers
• You may have two routers in your network.

EXAMPLE
Router 2
Router 1
DVR System
Enter 192.168.1.100 into the DMZ
Host IP section into Router 2
IP Address: 192.168.1.100
(Assigned by Router 2)
In both scenarios, the router that is immediate to the internet connection (Router 2 in illustration)
must act as a "bridge" to another router (Router 1 in illustration). The Auto Port Forwarding
Wizard must connect to Router 1.
A proper DMZ configuration in Router 2 allows all incoming traffic going through Router 2 to
automatically pass to Router 1. Router 2 acts as a "dummy" router and passes all the incoming
data onto Router 1. Router 1 is the router that needs the port forwarding information.
75
Appendix B: Auto Port Forwarding Wizard
Configuring a DMZ host connection
• Connect to "Router 1" on your network (referred
to as "Possible 1st Router" in the Auto Port
Forwarding Wizard). Obtain the IP address of
Router 1. Usually this can be found in the
"Status" section of your router menu. The IP
should begin with "192.168...."This IP address is
your DMZ IP.
Example
DMZ stands for Demilitarized Zone. Enabling a DMZ
IP on your router enables one of the routers to pass
information onto the second router.
DMZ IP address
assigned by a
secondary router
• Enter the IP address obtained from Router 1 into
the DMZ section of Router 2.
• Once you have configured Router 2 with a DMZ
connection, run the Auto Port Forwarding
Wizard to begin auto port forwarding to Router 1.
Figure 28.11 Entering DMZ information.
• Consult your router’s owner’s manual for details
on configuring DMZ settings.
Locating your Router IP - The Status Page
The "Status Page" of a router normally includes the router’s
vital information such as the IP address.
EXAMPLE
The IP information is
normally under a
header called "WAN" or
"Internet Port". Each
router has different
terminology.
Router IP assigned by
the main router. Enter
this IP into the DMZ
section of the primary
router.
76
Appendix C: What Is DDNS?
APPENDIX C: WHAT IS DDNS?
DDNS stands for Dynamic Domain Name Service. DDNS allows you to connect to your system
even if your IP address changes.
Your internet provider supplies you with an address called an IP address (Internet Protocol
address). An IP address is the address to contact your computer. The IP address constantly
changes. In other words, you have a dynamic IP address. An IP address that does not change is
called a Static IP address. Static IP addresses often cost more money, and must be requested by
the user.
How does DDNS work?
Hypothetically, if your friends' phone number changed every minute, it would be impossible to
contact them. In this case, your friends' phone numbers would be dynamic: ever changing, and
never the same.
IP addresses function in a similar way: the address constantly changes. If the address of your
system constantly changes, how can you connect to your system? This is where DDNS solves the
problem.
Imagine DDNS as a human telephone operator. If you wanted to contact your friend whose phone
number changed every minute, you can tell the telephone operator your friend's home address.
Because your friend's home address never changes, the telephone operator can tell you your
friend's phone number, no matter how often their phone number changes.
Enabling DDNS
To enable DDNS, you must register with a DDNS provider. Lorex offers free DDNS service for
certain products. Only specified systems are DDNS enabled.
A typical DDNS address may look like this: mysystem.lorexddns.net.
"mysystem" is the address name of the system chosen by you. You may re-name "mysystem" to
any name you wish. For example, if you wanted to name your system: my_lorex_system, the DDNS
address would be: my_lorex_system.lorexddns.net.
How DDNS benefits you
DDNS allows you to connect to your system even if your IP address changes. To access your
system, simply enter in the DDNS name of your system into your web browser, or remote software
application.
Since your DDNS address is static, you do not have to worry about your system's address
constantly changing.
