My camera is showing itself as offline on my NVR. How to Fix!

The DVR/NVR system assists in making it easier to keep tabs of the live feed and the status of the cams. If your connected Lorex cam is displayed as “offline” on your NVR, it might be because of an issue with the NVR's internal settings or it might instead be a cable connection issue.

You can fix this by restoring your NVR to factory settings if it's called for.

Fixing an Offline Lorex Camera with a Direct Connection

Check the port connections if your offline cam is connected directly to the back of the NVR. To do this, switch ports of an offline camera with an online camera.

If the offline cam displays itself as online when plugged into another port and the online cam becomes offline on the other port then it's a port issue. This indicates that your NVR port settings should be restored to default or factory settings.

  • LHV/LNR Series DVR/NVR: To restore this NVR model, right-click “Live View” to get to the “Quick Menu”, click the “Main Menu”, click the Setting Icon, click “Setting” then “Default”, and check the menus you wish to restore to default settings.

Click “Apply” to save changes then click “OK” to exit the menu.

  • ECO Series DVR/NVR: To restore this NVR model, right-click on “Live View” to access the “Quick Menu”. Click the Main Menu icon (a house) the click “Advanced”. Click the “Maintain” tab and then go to “Load Default”.

Select the menus you wish to restore to factory settings or click “All” to restore the entire system. Click “Apply” then “OK” on the Warning Window. Click “OK” to return to the menu and “Exit” to return to the previous menu. Reboot the DVR for the changes to take effect.

  • LNR200/LNR300 Series NVR: To restore this NVR model, right-click “Live View” then click “Menu”. Afterwards, click “Maintenance”, “Default”, and then “OK” to auto-reboot the NVR and restore the device to its factory settings.
  • LHA/LNK Series DVR/NVR: To restore this NVR model, go to the Taskbar and click, the Main Menu icon (a house). From there, click the “Advanced”, “Maintenance” option, and the “Maintenance” tab. On the tab, click “Load Default”.

Select the menus you wish to restore to factory settings. Click “Save” to confirm then restart your NVR for changes to apply.

If this doesn't fix your offline camera this might mean hardware failure. Contact Technical Support for assistance and potential replacement if the cam is under warranty.

Fixing an Offline Lorex Camera with a Switch Connection

If your offline cam is connected to a Power over Ethernet (PoE) switch (that's also linked to your router) then you might need to reconnect the cam to your NVR.

  • Reconnect and Disconnect: To reconnect your camera on an LHV/LNR Series NVR, disconnect then reconnect the cam to the switch. Make sure the switch is linked to the same router as your NVR.
  • Menu Navigation: Now right-click “Live View” to get the “Quick Menu”. Now click “Device Search”. Login the NVR with your login info. The default username and password is in your .
  • Device Search: After clicking Device Search, your NVR will search the network it's connected to for any IP cameras. It'll then display them on the top half of the Remote Device window.
  • Select Camera: Select the camera you wish to reconnect to on the window then click “Add”. Enter the password of the cam (also in your user manual). The cam appears on the window's lower half.
  • Green Status: After a few moments, the status should turn green. This indicates the cam has been successfully added to the NVR.

How do you restore an IP camera to default settings?

Make sure the cam is connected to your NVR through the Ethernet cable. Press and hold the reset button located at the base or back of the camera. While holding this button, disconnect and reconnect the Ethernet cable.

This should make your cam go back to factory settings and restart for good measure. The camera should start operating normally after the restart. However, because it's back to factory settings, you'll need to reconfigure the system and put in your custom settings from before.

The decades-old Lorex brand is a well-established company in the security technology industry. It offers topnotch, professional, and consumer-grade security systems for commerce and residences as well as homes, apartments, and offices.

How to Reset Lorex Camera

Some Lorex IP Cameras include a reset button found on the device itself. You can do manual reset with the button in order to restore the cam to default or factory settings (i.e., the settings it has fresh off its box). In order to reset your Lorex Cam to factory or default settings, do the following.

  • Make sure the cam is connected care of Ethernet cable to the NVR.
  • Press and hold the reset button by your finger on the base or back of the camera. It varies from model to model.
    • You might have to take off the housing in order to access this reset button as well.
    • Scan through your cam's user manual in order to find out the specific location of the reset button on your model of Lorex camera.
    • You can also avail of documentation and downloads for your device on the Lorex website.
  • While still holding and pressing the reset button, disconnect the Ethernet cable then reconnect it soon after. Don't let go of the button for 15 seconds afterwards.
  • Release the button and check if the camera resets to defaults and restarts. The restart process will take a couple of minutes to complete.

The camera should work normally after the reset and restart. However, you'll need to input your customization settings and reconfigure everything when all is said and done. If the reset isn't successful, retrace your steps and attempt it again.

What Does the Lorex Camera Brand Bring to the Table?

The Lorex cam brand offers some quality products, such as its Ultra HD 4K 8-Channel Security System. It includes various high-end video cameras that connect with each other. It's also a proper example of the best that the Lorex brand offers.

No Mandatory Monthly Fees and Optional Cloud Service

There's a lot to like about the camera line. For instance, you don't need monthly fees for it to work. You don't have to worry about long-term contracts or fees that require cancellation in case you wish to switch to another provider.

The only costs linked to this package deal were the initial cost of the equipment and a fee for premium cloud storage (optional). It's not like other products that emphasize cloud storage fees as a requirement for their products to work decently.

High Video Quality

You have 4K video quality, which means even a single frame screenshot reveals quite a lot in terms of what's happening before the camera. You're likelier to recognize faces, prevent blurs and obfuscation, and identify what you're looking at in high-quality footage.

It's no antiquated bank security camera with fuzzy footage. Everything is as clear as day and akin to real-time footage you'd see in a live-feed of a sports event like the Super Bowl.

People/Vehicular Detection

It's also quite the advanced camera network or system due to its vehicle and people detection. More to the point, it has advanced motion detectors that alert you when there's movement on your party by people or vehicles.

This prevents false alarms involving small animals or moving branches. The A.I. of the system detects only people and vehicles instead of pets or wildlife such as raccoons and squirrels.

Because you're monitoring everything via smartphone, tablet, or some other device, this feature eliminates unnecessary (and annoying) push notifications.

The Process

The installation process of the Lorex camera system can get involved and complex, like in the case of its reset process. There's no option for professional installation help from Lorex. You might have to hire a general third-party handyman to do it for you.

This is especially disadvantageous to any user that doesn't have any technical expertise or DIY know-how when it comes to installing equipment.

Monitoring Limits

The system requires you to monitor things on your own through the Lorex app. This is mostly fine, but other systems feature 24/7 monitoring for consumer-grade or even industrial-grade use.  You have to call for help in the event of an emergency yourself.

It's not like other systems that call emergency services like the police, an ambulance, or the fire department for you. It's not necessarily a deal-breaker for most, but for those looking for 24/7 CCTV monitoring might get disappointed.

The Specifications of the Lorex Camera 4K Ultra HD

The Lorex Ultra HD 4K 8-Channel Security System allows you to avoid monthly fees completely with a fully functional camera system that doesn't require the cloud storage in order to work. This is because it boasts of local storage through a hard drive.

To wit, it comes with the following specifications:

  • Local storage through hard drive.
  • 18 LED infrared sensors for night vision.
  • Its recording type is motion-activated recording.
  • It offers 10 gigabytes of free cloud storage as well.
    • The free plan extra features include 3 RapidCaps per month.
  • Optional expanded cloud storage subscription for all-access mobile video.
    • The Lorex Cloud Premium monthly plan only costs about $4.
    • The Lorex Cloud Premium yearly plan only costs $35.

Don’t Forget to Keep This in Mind

If you wish to reset your IP camera to default settings, you need it to be connected to your NVR through its Ethernet cable. You should then press and hold the reset button found at the base or back of the cam. Afterwards, connect and disconnect the Ethernet cable while still holding the button.

From there, wait 15 seconds more before releasing the reset button. This allows the device to return to factory settings then restarting when push comes to shove. The specifics of resetting the cam have been made this complex to prevent accidental resets when you don't need to do a reset.

Why Should You Make the Switch to Lorex Security Cams?

However, Lorex has several aces up their sleeves, including their crowning achievement of an Ultra HD 4K camera system that outdoes even bank CCTVs and their fuzzy videotape recordings.

More about the Lorex Brand and Its 4K Offerings

You can find tons of beefed-up security system options with Lorex on its homepage. You might even feel overwhelmed by the options. Instead of offering smart devices, they've really zeroed-in on security cam tech.

You can shoot 2K or 4K with the Lorex brand. It even offers wireless outdoor cameras to boot. However, its head-turner of a product remains its Lorex Ultra HD 4K 8-Channel Security System.

To wit, the whole package offers the following:

  • 1 Mouse
  • 1 HDMI Cable
  • 4 Mounting Kits
  • 1 Security Decal
  • 1 Ethernet Cable
  • 1 1-TB Hard Drive
  • 5 Power Adapters
  • 1 Quick Start Guide
  • 4 60-Foot BNC Cables
  • 4 Ultra HD 4K Cameras

All that's missing is 3 French hens, 2 turtle doves, and a partridge in a pear tree! It will really feel like Christmas when you unbox this monster of a package deal.

Why Ultra HD Makes Perfect Sense for Security

Because Lorex is faced with so many home security systems in the market, it naturally pushed the technology to 4K video quality. However, some might question whether this was a wise decision or not. Isn't 1080p Full HD enough to reveal face details or plate numbers?

Isn't 4K video overkill? The present industry standard for Nest and ADT is 1080p. The highest quality video for smart security cams is actually 4K but many consumers question if it's required.

By our estimation it does help in long-distance shots and capturing detailed footage of intruders when the is triggered, especially for the Lorex 4K Ultra HD 8-Channel Security System.

The Pros and Cons of the Lorex Security Cam Brand

It was reported back in 2018 that the global smart home security market was valued at $2.14 billion. It was expected to grow up to $4.37 billion this year in 2022, and even the pandemic shouldn't slow down its growth. If anything, it might've pushed more people to invest in smart cam security!

Aside from the 4K Ultra HD 8-Channel Security System, Lorex has a hose of cameras in its arsenal. These products pack some serious security power in their own right, but they have some drawbacks you should watch out for too.

Pros:

  • No contracts and monthly fees.
  • The app experience is buttery smooth.
  • Local storage via 1TB hard disk and the like.
  • Its color night vision offers long-range coverage.
  • Free cloud storage and optional expanded cloud storage.
  • There are lots of equipment and building options aplenty.
  • All models offer HD video quality in 720p and 1080p (up to 4K in some of them).

Cons:

  • Cheap Lorex packaging.
  • Limited customer service hours.
  • It's hard to navigate the Lorex website.
  • Dealing with occasional false alarms and notifications.
  • Some might feel like Ultra 4K HD quality footage is overkill for surveillance.

Ultimately, Lorex cameras are worth a look even over the ever-popular Ring or Arlo cams because of the company's sheer focus on these devices. They've found a way to make Ultra 4K security footage possible and relatively cost-effective for its quality. That's no simple feat to accomplish!

Never Forget the Following

To connect your phone to your Lorex Wi-Fi cam, 4K cam, or wireless cam, you need it to connect to the Lorex Home mobile app. This shouldn't be a problem since all Lorex products use mobile devices in order to operate them, with your smartphone or tablet doubling as their remote controls.

You'll need to add the device to the app, scan a QR code or manually enter the device ID, setup a password for your account, connect to your home Wi-Fi, and name your device to separate it from the other devices integrated with the application.

How to Connect Lorex Camera to Wi-Fi?

How to Connect Lorex Camera to Wi-Fi

Lorex cams are powerful cameras with reliable technology and no monthly fees. With that said, how do you connect the Lorex Cam to your Home Wi-Fi exactly?

Lorex cams might not have the name recognition achieved by Ring cams from Amazon and Nest cams from Google. However, they have many other things going for them, such as staying in power. The famous Canadian brand that's making their splash stateside has been around for quite a while.

Regardless, let's learn to connect the Lorex camera to wifi down below. We'll also discuss Ethernet connections to NVR, restoring the camera to factory settings, and the things that make Lorex products stand out.

How to Connect Lorex Camera to Wi-Fi

Here's how you can go about connecting or changing the Wi-Fi provider of your Lorex Camera. This process works whether you're setting up your Lorex cam for the first time, right out of its box, or if you're switching from one Wi-Fi connection to another.

  • Activate the camera hotspot by pressing the reset button once.
  • Open the Lorex Home App. Go to “Device Settings” by tapping onto it.
  • Scroll down the menu then select “Wireless Network”. Tap “Next” afterward.
  • Tap “Join” once you get a prompt to join the Wi-Fi network.
  • Wait for your device to connect to the Device Hotspot.

Restore Your Lorex Camera to Factory Settings

In order to reset your camera to default or factory settings like it's fresh off of the box it came with then you should do the following:

  • Look for the reset button. Depending on the camera, it could be located at the base or back of the camera.
  • Press and hold this reset button for 10 to 15 seconds or until you hear the chime indicating that the camera has undergone the reset process.
  • Look below the lens for the flashing green light. This indicates whether the cam has fully reset and restored factory defaults or not.

Why Does the Lorex Camera Say It’s Offline?

You might need to simply reset or power cycle your router (turn it on and off) until the connection returns. If it's an issue with the camera itself then that's what the reset function is for. Go ahead and reset the camera to see if that puts your cam back online.

If your connected Lorex Cam claims you're offline on your NVR, it could be an Internet connectivity issue, internal settings of your NVR, or an Ethernet cable connection problem.

If your offline camera has a direct connection to the back of the NVR, check the ports for damage or a loose connection. Or you can restore your NVR to default settings in order to see if that fixes the issue.

Things That Make the Lorex Camera Stand Out

The best of the best of the cream of the crop of Lorex Camera products—Lorex Ultra HD 4K 8-Channel Security System—has a lot going for it.

It's able to take on rivals like Amazon's Ring Cams or Google's Nest Cams because of features like its exceptional video quality up to 4K, commercial-grade quality and construction, and several custom recording options.

Furthermore, Lorex Wireless camera batteries last for 4 months of regular use. While this might sound short compared to other devices that have batteries that last 6 months, those devices tend to get to the 6-month figure by putting their cams on the lowest settings.

What More Can Be Said of 4K Quality?

Writing about how good a camera's audio and video doesn't do it justice. Instead of just using your imagination, look for good video reviews on the Lorex camera, particularly their best offerings like the Lorex Ultra HD 4K 8-Channel Security System or the Lorex Wireless Camera.

Their best cameras offer Ultra HD 4K or better than the standard 720p HD or 1080p Full HD of other camera brands like Amazon Ring or Google Nest. They showcase a detailed video display worthy of a Super Bowl livestream or the latest Marvel superhero movie.

In security and surveillance terms, everything becomes more detailed. The faces of would-be burglars or package thieves will be revealed or the license plate number of their escape vehicle would be exposed.

Lorex Camera Customer Service

You can get to the Lorex Cam customer service from Monday to Saturday from 11:00 AM to 10:00 PM Eastern Standard Time. You have to wait if you get problems with your system outside of those hours. Thankfully, its website has an FAQ, help desk, and support for common issues and glitches.

The reset button option, by the way, covers most connection and account access issues even though it can get quite annoying having to reconfigure your cam or set of cameras every time.

The Global Home Security Market

According to recent reports, the global home smart security market has gotten a value of $2.14 billion in 2018 and is estimated to grow to $4.37 billion by 2022 (this year).

The demand for Wi-Fi or IP cams has only grown during pandemic times even though no reports are forthcoming exactly because we're dealing with Covid-19. People want to feel safe and secure even when they're stuck at home during lockdown.

As lockdowns get lifted and everyone starts going back to their offices, they also want to keep an eye on their empty houses with the ease of a mobile app.

Even When Faced with Stiff Competition

Even when faced with stiff competition from Ring, Blink, Nest, Arlo, and Wyze, Lorex finds a way to outdo them in more ways than one (particularly in terms of offering 4K Ultra HD cameras versus their 1080p or 720p offerings).

They might have name recognition, the backing of industry giants like Google and Amazon, and a large market share. However, more and more people are becoming more aware of consumer-grade Wi-Fi cameras and using smart devices for security and surveillance purposes.

Never Forget

Never forget that to connect your Lorex Camera to your Wi-Fi, you need to press the reset button once (don't press and hold, just press it) to activate the hotspot of the camera. Open the Lorex Home app, tap “Device Settings”, scroll down, tap “Wireless Network”, and tap “Next”.

When you get the prompt to join the Wi-Fi network, tap the “Join” option and then wait for your device to connect to the “Device Hotspot”. You're now all good.
