2.1Mount the cameras anywhere within the Wi-Fi range, plug the power adapter to the camera and connect it to the power socket nearby.
2.2The cameras should start streaming videos within 1 minute (or less).
2.3If it does not display video, it is probably because of external factors such as concrete walls, glasses, mirrors, fish tank, etc., or the distance between camera and NVR, i.e. too far away, please try to move the cameras closer to the NVR.
3.Install Your Cameras to Ceilings or Walls

3.1Locate the area where you want to install the camera. Drill the 3 screw holes for the anchors, hammer in the plastic anchors, line up the camera's screw holes with the screw holes you drill into the wall, you may un-screw the camera from the camera base if you want, install the screws, and then twist the camera back onto the base.
3.2Aim the camera where you want. You may use the Torx Wrench to adjust the camera up and down.
3.3Or you may move the camera left or right to your desired angle.

.

4.Wired Connection

If you plan to install the camera somewhere out of the Wi-Fi range, you may need to connect the camera to your router (with an Ethernet cable) in order to get better video streaming.

.

4.1Use standard network cable to connect the camera to your Router (See the diagram below):

4.2After you connect the camera to the router, go to the NVR menu, right click the mouse > go to [Video Manage] > [Refresh] > [Auto Add]. The camera will be added automatically, and the video will show up on the monitor.

Tips: Use Auto Add (Per 4.2 above) when you are doing a wired connection between the camera and your router. However, if you want the camera to work wirelessly (without connecting to the router), use Match Code to add camera to NVR. See instruction below on Add camera by Matching Code.

Frequently Asked Question

Question: I have connected the system, but nothing is showing on my monitor?

Answer:

1.Check the cable connection from the NVR to your Monitor/TV.
2.Try another HDMI, or VGA cable. HDMI signal is sometimes picky, use only GOLD PLATED HDMI, or use VGA connection if HDMI does not work.
3.Your Monitor/TV does not support the default output of the NVR, make sure your Monitor/TV's resolution is no less than 1024×768 pixels. In fact, we suggest a monitor/TV with a minimum resolution of 1920×1080 (1080p).
4.If there is no picture on the monitor only after you mistakenly change the NVR's output resolution, you need to change it back to default. In this case, you need to connect the NVR to a different monitor/TV with higher resolution and then change it back to lower resolution.
5.If you can access the NVR menu but there is no video feed on the monitor, you may need to check whether the cameras are being installed within the Wi-Fi range, if not, you  will need to do wired connection instead, see the instruction above.

.

Question: The system worked for a while then some channels started to lose signals, why?

Answer:

1.Make sure all cameras are within the Wi-Fi range so none of them disconnects from Wi-Fi.
2.Try use wired connection if cameras are to be installed outside the Wi-Fi range.
3.Reset your system, then re-pair all the cameras with the NVR. Check the instruction above.
4.Check the firmware version and forward it to us, we will check for firmware update (if applicable).

.

Question: Does the NVR record sound?

Answer: This NVR does not record audio, it records video only.

.

Question: The night vision of my camera is terrible?

Answer:

1.Make sure not to aim your camera towards something JUST in front of the lens, i.e. wall, flowers, etc.
2.Do not face the camera towards glass, mirror, etc. They will reflect the IR lights from the camera.
3.Do not face the camera lens towards direct lamps or sunlight.
4.Light up the ambient area a little bit, in complete darkness, night performance may be affected.

.

Question: My camera is getting misty inside, is there a known fix?

Answer: Condensation occurs in a humid environment as a result of the difference of the temperatures of the air and the object on which it occurs. In most cases it will clear up itself. The mist is more or less a rapid drop in temperature – one solution might be the use of a see-through rain cover, or a large enough zip-lock bag with appropriate cuts, applied before taking the camera out of doors to minimize the humidity trapped in it.

Otherwise, the same humidity will still condense within the rain cover itself instead of in the camera just like when one uses a rain cover in cold weather with a warm camera. Another, not as practical, but effective solution might be to regulate the temperature around the camera, but isolating it from humidity is the more guaranteed solution, even if it is only applicable in very few situations. If the issue remains, you may send it back for replacement, please contact us via email.

.

Question: My NVR is not recording, why?

Answer: We sell NVR with / without hard drive, so make sure your NVR comes with a preinstalled hard drive. If your NVR does not include a hard drive, you can source one on your own, or you can purchase one from us. If you have a spare hard drive and you can install on your own, make sure it is a 3.5 inch internal hard drive with SATA connector.

If your NVR comes with a hard drive but it is not recording, please verify the hard drive info, if it is not showing hard drive info, open the NVR case and verify the cable connection. If it shows up error under the hard drive info, Right click the mouse > Go to System setup > General setup > HDD Setup > Format, then click on Format.

Note that because the hard drive records continuously (24/7), it may become corrupted after some time, we warrant the hard drive up to 12 month following the purchase date, if your hard drive is not recording anymore, you may still contact us via email.

.

Question: The NVR kept shutting down or rebooting.

Answer:

1.Format the HDD: Right click > System Setup > General Setup > HDD Setup > Format.
2.Disconnect the hard drive from the NVR, you will need to slide off the NVR cover in order to do so, once it is disconnected, check whether the problem continues on a standalone NVR. If no, re-connect the hard drive back to the NVR and test again.
3.Replace the power adapter for NVR.
4.If the issue follows, that may be the problem of the NVR. Please contact us via email.

.

Question: I forget my login password and I am locked out?

Answer: You can use the following method to reset your system manually.

On the log-in screen, if you enter the wrong password, it should give you the above error message. Don't click the OK button yet, instead, hover your mouse there, left click, right click, left click, right click, repeat this operation a few more times, until you see the following screen, which indicates you can reset your system now, click Yes to proceed.
