SmartSearch (Motion History)
•
SmartSearch acts the same as Motion History in the DVR’s PC Software.
•
The purpose of the SmartSearch feature is to find occurrences of motion inside video that has already been
recorded. This is particularly useful if the DVR is configured for continuous recording.
•
In contrast, the “Motion Detection” feature is designed to detect motion as it occurs, i.e. in real-time, and then
trigger one or more of the possible actions.
•
In the Playback screen, select the desired Camera, date/time and Recording Type search filter criteria in the same
manner as a regular search. SmartSearch can find motion in any type of recording.
•
Select the “Smart Search” button.
•
Select the area in which the SmartSearch function should look for motion. On the DVR faceplate or remote control,
use the arrow buttons to move the cursor, EDIT to start marking the area. Using mouse control, drag a square.
Only a single area can be selected. You may select the entire image as the area, or just a small portion of the
image. Example: to track occurrences of unauthorized personnel entering a restricted area, draw a rectangle
around that area.

•
Select the desired sensitivity between 1 and 5. Press F3 on the DVR controls or “A” on a remote control, then the
number. For mouse control, right click and select a number. A sensitivity value of “5” will find occurrences of subtle
motion where as a sensitivity value of “1” will only find occurrences of significant motion inside the selected are. If
in doubt, select the highest sensitivity of “5” to make sure the search does not miss anything.
•
Initiate the search. On the DVR faceplate or remote control, press the PTZ button. For mouse control, right click
and select “Smart Search” from the popup menu.
•
The search results are displayed inside the results list area of the regular “Search & Playback” screen. The search
results can then be navigated, played and selected for export in the same manner as results from a “regular”
search. As with regular search, the number of results that can be displayed in the list is limited to 4000. A warning
message will pop up if more search results are generated. In this case, try to narrow the date/time range if
possible, or split the search into two parts, each with a smaller range. The resulting clips start a few seconds prior
to the occurrence of motion and end a few seconds after the motion stops. This means that if there is continuous
motion inside the selected search area, the resulting clips can be as long as the maximum clip length of 128MB.
•
SmartSearch will find any type of motion, regardless of what caused the motion. Example: SmartSearch will find
motion generated by People, Vehicles and Animals. SmartSearch may also find motion that is a result of weather,
example: camera vibration.

• 100M Half-Dup
• 100M Full-Dup
IP Address
This IP address must not conflict with other IP addresses on the network. If there is a DHCP server on the network,
set the IP to 0.0.0.0, save and reboot the DVR. During the reboot process, the DVR will search for the DHCP server

and receive a dynamic IP address. This item will display the dynamic IP address. If the DVR uses PPPoE or dialup,
this selection will display the dynamic internet IP address.
Mac Address
The MAC address is permanently assigned and the value can not be changed.
Port
Network access port number, must be greater than 2000. Default is 8000.
Mask
This is the Subnet Mask.
Gateway
The Gateway IP is used to communicate to different network segments.
DNS Address
If the DVR uses PPPoE and is assigned a dynamic IP address, set the DNS IP with a fixed Internet IP. The DVR will
send information e.g. the DVR’s name, DVR’s serial number and the DVR’s current IP to that fixed IP address. The
fixed Internet IP is the DNS IP. The DNS server with this fixed Internet IP can receive DVR information and is used to
resolve the DVR’s dynamic IP.
This DNS is not a standard Domain Name Server. You can use the provided SDK to develop this DNS software.
MCastIP (Multicast IP)
This is one D-class IP address, between 224.0.0.0 to 239.255.255.255. If multicast is not used, this address is not
necessary. Some routers will prohibit multicast to prevent network disturbances.
Multicast
•
•
When Multicast is enabled, multiple live viewing connections to a camera from different client PCs count as a single
network connection. This allows more live viewing clients (Remote Station software) to be connected to a DVR
without problems.
Multicast uses the UDP protocol and works only if the network to which the DVR and the Remote Station software
are connected supports Multicast. Multicast traffic will not pass through routers and gateways, unless the local
network administrator has configured these devices specifically so that multicast traffic can pass through them.
Because of this, Multicast is not enabled in the Remote Station software by default.
Remote Host IP and Port (central PC)
If an alarm or exception occurs, the DVR will send information to this host IP. The central PC with this IP can receive
alarm and exception information from the DVR. The provided SDK is used to develop the central PC software.
HttpPort
This port is for an IE browser. The default value is 80. It can be modified.
PPPoE
The DVR supports PPPoE dail-up function.
Example: Use PPPoE function
1. Enter into the “Network” menu.
2. Select NIC type.
3. Input port number. In the port edit box, use numeric keys to input port number. The port number must be
more than 2000.
4. Input DNS IP. Input one fixed Internet IP address where the IP analyst software (IPServer) is running.
5. Input PPPoE parameters. Use “ENTER” or “EDIT” key to enable PPPoE function (set PPPoE flag as “9”).
Input PPPoE username, password and verify password that your ISP provided.
6. Save parameters. In Network menu, press Confirm to save parameters.
7. Reboot the DVR to activate the new settings. During the reboot process, the DVR will start dialup using the
PPPoE function. If the DVR dialup to the internet is successful, the DVR will display the dynamic internet IP
address in Network menu.

Email JPEG Attachments
The email function has an option to attach JPEG images to emails that contain camera-specific event information
(i.e. signal loss, motion, view tampering). There is a limit of how many JPEG images can be emailed at the same
time. When multiple emails with attached JPEGs are sent simultaneously, a limit of 4 emails will contain the
attachments.
• The time between JPEGs can be configured. However, the pre-alarm (pre-recording time) JPEG will not always
be exactly XX seconds prior to the alarm JPEG. Depending on the current bit rate, the DVR may not have video
from XX seconds ago in its buffer, and therefore the Email function can not provide a pre-alarm image from XX
seconds prior to the event.
• When the DVR is playing back video locally, the pre-alarm JPEG image can not be obtained and the email will only
contain 2 attached JPEG images instead of 3. The same can happen for other reasons (i.e. DVR was too busy at
the time) in about 10% of the cases, i.e. 1 out of 10 Emails will have 2 instead of 3 attachments.

• Only files that were exported from the same type of DVR should be imported (e.g. files exported on a 4 channel
2000/F DVR should only be imported on the same or another 4 channel 2000/F DVR, etc.)
• The names of exported configuration files contain the DVR serial number and the timestamp. This means that a
second export operation will not overwrite a configuration file previously exported from the same DVR since the
timestamp will be different.
• Configuration files exported via the OSD (on screen display) can later be imported into a DVR using the Remote
Station software. Similarly, configuration backup files created by the Remote Station software can be copied to a
USB flash drive and imported into a DVR via the OSD menu.
• The content of the files is encrypted. It is not possible to open the file and determine what the values are for
specific configuration parameters.
WARNING: Importing a configuration file will change all configuration parameters except certain network configuration
parameters. This means that if the passwords inside the configuration file are not known, it will not be possible to
