Connect to the NVR
There are various ways you can connect to the NVR and below are the
suggested methods for different network setup:
•
The NVR is placed in a network with a DHCP server: Connect to
the NVR by using “NVR Search” Utility
•
The NVR is placed in a network without DHCP server (or you are
connecting to it directly): Access the NVR with its default IP
Use NVR Search Utility
If the NVR is placed in a corporate network or a local area network
where a DHCP server is already presented, run the “NVR Search”
utility from a computer that is on the same network and locate the
NVR with its IP address that is assigned by the top-level DHCP server.
12 SVR-­‐632 User’s Manual To begin, launch the “NVR Search” utility from the CD and proceed
with the installation:
SVR-­‐632 User’s Manual 13
Once the installation is complete, check the “Launch the Search AP”
option and click “Finish”.
The search should start automatically and its status should be displayed.

16 SVR-­‐632 User’s Manual Access the NVR with its default IP address
The NVR comes with a pre-configured static IP “192.168.101.50”.
However, it is only used when there is no DHCP server presented in
the network. The NVR will turn on its DHCP server function and act as
the DHCP server in the network. To connect to the NVR, use a PC that
is on the same network over a switch or hub, or connect the PC
directly to the NVR using a crossover CAT5 Ethernet cable.
The PC that is connected directly to the NVR (or within the same local
area network) should receive an IP from the NVR. Simply access the
NVR from your web browser with its IP address

Network Setup
The “System Configurations” page provides users options to setup the
device quickly and properly. After properly configuring all settings in all
the sub-pages, users should expect a fully working network video
recorder that is ready to manage cameras on the network. We will
start by configuring its network settings to make sure it works
correctly in your network. Next, we will help you adjust the system
time so videos will be recorder with correct timestamp. To better
secure the system for unwanted disturbance, we will guide you on
setting up user’s account and privileges to prevent settings gets
altered by users other than the system administrator. Lastly, we will
tell you what you should expect after installing a hard disk and how to
prepare the hard disk for the video recording.
Network Settings

in your network. It is critical that settings here are configured correctly
based on your network configurations so that the recorder can be
administered through the local area network and cameras can be

DHCP server, and you can locate the NVR by using the NVR search
utility.
If there's no DHCP server in the network, and the NVR is set to use
"Auto Mode", it will use its own default static IP 192.168.101.50.
The NVR supports three connection types that can be configured
depends on how the network is setup.
If you wish to set the recorder to use a static IP address in your local
area network,
1. Choose “Static IP” from the “Connection Type” drop-down menu

DNS server address for the recorder
* The recorder can detect the presence of a DHCP server upon startup.
It sets itself to use static IP address if there is no DHCP server
currently presented in the network. Its DHCP server function is also
turned on at the same time to assign IP addresses to cameras that are
later connected to the network or you can manually turn off the DHCP
server function from "System Configurations">>"Network
Setup">>"DHCP Server" if you wish to use a separate DHCP server.
DHCP Server
The built-in DHCP Server function is NOT always configurable and is
greatly dependant to the connection type that is set to use in "Device

1. If the connection type is "Auto Mode", the DHCP server function is
NOT configurable. It will be ON if the NVR doesn't obtain an IP from a
DHCP server in the local network and uses its own default static IP
192.168.101.50
2. If the connection type is "Auto Mode", the DHCP server function is
NOT configurable. It will be OFF if the NVR obtains an IP from a DHCP
server in the local network.
3. If the connection type is "DHCP Client", the DHCP server function is
NOT configurable. It will be OFF if the NVR obtains an IP from a DHCP
server in the local network.
4. If the connection type is "DHCP Client", the DHCP server function is
NOT configurable. It will be ON if the NVR doesn't obtain an IP from a
DHCP server in the local network and uses its own default static IP
192.168.101.50
5. If the connection type if "Static IP", the DHCP server function is
configurable and can be turn on/off manually.

DDNS Service
DDNS, which stands for “Dynamic DNS”, is a method, protocol, or
network service that provides the capability for a networked device,
such as a router or computer system (in this case, the NVR) using the
Internet Protocol Suite, to notify a domain name server to change, in
real time, the active DNS configuration of its configured hostnames,
addresses or other information stored in DNS.
A popular application of dynamic DNS is to provide a residential user’s
Internet gateway that has a variable, often changing, IP address with
a well-known hostname resolvable through standard DNS queries.
This is useful if the NVR is placed on the Internet with a dynamic
public IP, which once the DDNS is properly setup, users can access the
NVR remotely with the DDNS domain name without worrying if the IP
has changed or not.
*Please make sure a valid DNS server has been configured under the
“Network Setting” page in order for this function to work properly.
*The NVR currently only works with free DDNS service provided by
“DynDNS”. For more information, please go to www.dyndns.com
88 SVR-­‐632 User’s Manual *If the NVR is placed behind a router or Internet gateway, please
make sure port forwarding for port 80 is configured on the router or
the gat- way in order for the DDNS function to properly register with
the service. It’s often suggested to use the DDNS function in the
router/ gateway for such case instead.
*Once you have the DDNS function successfully up and running,
please DO NOT forget to configure port forwarding for the NVR web
port (default 80) and the streaming port (default 9877) in the
router/gateway for remote viewing. You can then type in
http://yourddnsdomain in the browser to access the NVR remotely for
live view.
In order to properly configure the DDNS service function, please
register a free DDNS domain name and account from DynDNS first. Go
to http://dyn.com/dns/dyndns-free/ from the browser to do so.

server in the same local network, the NVR can obtain IP address from
the DHCP server. And you can locate the NVR by using the NVR search
utility.
If there's no DHCP server in the network, and the NVR is set to use
"Auto Mode", it will use its own default static IP 192.168.101.50.
* The recorder can detect the presence of a DHCP server upon startup.
It sets itself to use static IP address if there is no DHCP server
currently presented in the network. Its DHCP server function is also

authentication methods.
We have finished defining how an event will be triggered and which
servers will be receiving notifications in the previous two sections, now
we can finish up the event configuration by setting:
•Which channels will have event trigger function enabled
220 SVR-­‐632 User’s Manual •Add system events if you will
•Where the warnings will be sent to and how they will be sent.
Use the checkbox to enable event trigger on the desired channels.
*Once motion detection is enabled in this page, please configure the
motion area and enable motion detection in the corresponding
channels (cameras) from camera's own web UI. The NVR only detects
the first motion area set in the camera. The NVR recognizes the first
motion area by its ID number set in the camera.
* Grayed out checkboxes represent the function that is either not
available on the camera, or the event notification method used in the
camera is not supported by the NVR.
* Enabling "Custom Event" allows events from the CMS software to
trigger the NVR to start recording.
Define which system events should trigger the recorder to send out
notifications if you will.
SVR-­‐632 User’s Manual 221
Define how the notifications will be sent and where they will be sent.
• Event trigger may not work for cameras that are placed outside of
your local network or on the Internet until the “UPnP Port Forwarding”
is enabled in both the NVR and the router.
