Instructions for use

Installing the storage unit
Before first use, please install the storage unit. Only one SATA HDD with a maximum capacity of 6TB can be installed in the recording unit housing (the HDD is not included in the package).

  • Loosen the screws and remove the NVR cover
  • Connect the data cables and secure the hard drive to the screws
  • Put the NVR cover back on its position
  • Connect the power and internet cable to the NVR

Turning the NVR on
Plug the power cord into a 230V outlet. The NVR will start. The indicator LED will light up.

If the start time is within the preset program for recording, then the recording function will start automatically


  1. Check that the input voltage corresponds to the recommended voltage of the device. The supply voltage is 230V ± 10% / 50 Hz 2A.
  2. We suggest using a UPS device to protect the device from voltage fluctuations.

Turning the NVR off
There are two ways to turn off the device.

  1. Access the main menu (right click on the screen) and select the option
    Logout – Shutdown
  2. Turn off the power supply.

Special warnings:

  1. Restart after the voltage drops. If the device is closed abnormally, it creates a backup and restarts from that status after power is restored.
  2. Replace the battery on the system board. Before replacing the battery, you must save the system settings and turn off the power supply. The device time must be rescheduled after the battery is replaced. We recommend that you replace the battery every year


Remote control of the device

The NVR can be controlled locally or remotely from both smartphones and computers with Windows operating system.
