Installation
This section describes how to install the DVR unit.
Installation environment
When installing your product, consider these factors:
•
Ventilation
•
Temperature
•
Moisture
•
Chassis load
Ventilation: Do not block any ventilation openings. Install in accordance with the
manufacturer’s instructions. Ensure that the location planned for the installation
of the unit is well ventilated.
Temperature: Consider the unit’s operating temperature (-10 to +55 ºC, 14 to
131 °F) and noncondensing humidity specifications (10 to 90%) before choosing
an installation location. Extremes of heat or cold beyond the specified operating
temperature limits may reduce the life expectancy of the DVR. Do not install the
unit on top of other hot equipment. Leave 44 mm (1.75 in.) of space between
rack-mounted DVR units.
Moisture: Do not use the unit near water. Moisture can damage the internal
components. To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not expose this unit to
rain or moisture.
Chassis: Equipment weighing less than 15.9 kg (35 lb.) may be placed on top of
the unit.
Unpacking the DVR and its accessories

Connecting a KTD-405 keypad and dome
camera to the DVR
Use the input/output box that is supplied with the keypad to connect the KTD-405
keypad to the DVR. See Appendix D “KTD-405 keypad” on page 129 for more
information on wiring and using the KTD-405 keypad.
As the KTD-405 keypad uses full duplex data communication, you cannot
connect the both keypad and a dome camera directly to the DVR from the RS485 port as this could cause problems on the bus. If both devices are required, it
is recommended that you use the keypad’s RS-422 connection to connect the
dome camera and the keypad’s RS-485 connection to connect the DVR. See
Figure 5 as well as Table 4 and Table 5 below.
Note: These connections only work with UTC PTZ protocols (see Appendix B on
page 125). If you are using another manufacturer’s PTZ protocol, it is not
possible to connect both a keypad and dome camera to the DVR.

Defining a recording schedule
Defining a recording schedule lets you specify when the DVR records video and
under what circumstances. Each camera can be configured to have its own
recording schedule.
The schedules are visually presented on a map for easy reference. See Figure 7
below for an example.
Figure 6: Description of the schedule window
1. Camera. Select a camera.
2. Schedule time. Represents the 24-hour cycle during which a schedule is selected.
3. Schedule day. There are seven days to select: Sunday (Sun), Monday (Mon), Tuesday
(Tue), Wednesday (Wed), Thursday, (Thu), Friday (Fri), and Saturday (Sat).
4. Recording type. There are five recording types to select, which are color-coded:
 TL Time lapse (Green squares): Record of a specific day. Each green square in the timeline
represents an hour in the 24-hour period.
 TL-Hi (Dark green): High quality time lapse. Records high quality video.
 TL-Lo (Bright green): Low quality time lapse. Records low quality video. This could be used,
for example, for night recordings when few events or alarms are expected. Saving the
video in low quality helps save resources on the HDD.
 Event (Yellow): Records only events, such as motion detection and POS/ATM text insertion.
 Alarm (Red): Records only alarms.
 None (Grey): No recording during this period.
5. Timeline. There is a 24-hour time line for each day. Up to eight recording periods can be
scheduled during the 24-hour period.

Modifying the warning buzzer
When an alarm is triggered by the system or a camera, the DVR can be set up to
respond with a warning buzzer. You can modify the time during which the
warning buzzer sounds for both system and camera alarm. Select Alarm >
Advanced Settings and select a buzzer time limit for the system and camera
alarms. Default is mute.
Setting up motion detection
Motion detection is one of the most important features of a DVR. With it there is
no need to manually search through hours of video recordings to find an event.
The DVR can be set up to trigger an alarm if it detects motion and to record it.
You can then search these recorded motion activities for specific incidents. If
enabled, motion detection recording can help increase the number of days your
DVR can record.
You can mask out any areas of motion on an analog camera display that you do
not want to trigger a recording such as a flag on a pole or a moving tree.
Select the level of sensitivity to motion as well the target size so that only objects
that could be of interest can trigger a motion recording. For example, recording
is triggered by the movement of a person but not that of a cat.
You can set up both the schedule and areas sensitive to motion detection for
each camera individually or easily copy the settings of one camera to other
cameras.

Configuring DDNS
A static IP address never changes so you can enter it into the browser or CMS
and the DVR network connection will always work with it.
However, if you have a dynamic IP address for your public IP address, it will
change every time you connect to the network. Under such situations, you can
set up a dynamic domain name system (DDNS) that will link your public IP
address to a host name so that you can connect to the DVR with the host name.
Note: if you are not seeing video over your cellular network, some cellular
providers block port 554 so you may need to change it to another value. See
Appendix C “Port forwarding information” on page 127 for more information.
There are two ways to set up a DDNS:
•
DynDNS: Manually create your own host name. You will first need to create a
user account using the hosting web site, DynDDNS.org.
•
ezDDNS: Activate the DDNS auto-detection function to set up a dynamic IP
address. The server is set up to assign an available host name to your DVR.
Figure 7: ezDDNS setup window
Note: You cannot have two DVRs with the same host name.
To set up DDNS:

Configuring an NTP server
A Network Time Protocol (NTP) server can also be configured on your DVR to
keep the date and time current and accurate.

Setting and calling up preset tours
Preset tours move a PTZ dome camera to different steps (called “Keypoint” in the
interface). The camera stays at a step for a set dwell time before moving on to
the next step. The steps are defined by presets (see “Setting and calling up
presets” on page 75.)
Each preset tour consists of steps. A step consists of a step number, a dwell
time, and a speed.
The step number is the order the camera will follow while cycling through the
preset tour. The dwell time is the length of time for which a camera stays at a
step before moving to the next one. The speed is the rate at which the camera
will move from one key point to the next.
Note: The PTZ dome camera used must be able to support a preset tour
command. See Appendix F on page 139 for the complete list of PTZ commands
available by camera protocol.

The DVR continues to record the live view from a camera while simultaneously
playing back video on that camera display. You must have the access privilege to
play back recordings (see “Customizing a user’s access privileges” on page 110
for more information).
Cameras in multiview mode play back simultaneously. This means, for example,
that it is easy to follow the path of an intruder who has passed in front of several
cameras.
You must be in live view to play back video.
Overview of the playback window
It is easy to manage playback from the playback window.

Port forwarding
information
A router is a device that lets you share your internet connection between multiple
computers. Most routers will not allow incoming traffic to the device unless you
have configured them to forward the necessary ports to that device. By default
our software and devices (DVRs and NVRs) require the following ports to be
forwarded:
Note: Port forwarding may reduce the security of the computers on your network.
Please contact your network administrator or a qualified network technician for
further information.
Port: 80
HTTP protocol
Used to connect via IE
browser.
Port: 8000
Client Software Port
Used to connect to video
streams.
Port: 554
RTSP Port
Real time streaming protocol.
Used to record video remotely.
Port: 1024
RTSP Port for 3G/4G
Use with mobile apps.
Used for 3G/4G connection.
Note: It is recommended that the RTSP port 1024 should only be used when
experiencing connection issues over a 3G/4G connection.
For example: If the client port is changed to 9000 then the +200 port will be
9200. Using the default client port 8000 then the +200 port will be 8200.
