PART 3 - CONNECTING THE DVR TO YOUR DISPLAY

To Connect to a VGA Monitor:

You will need to purchase a BNC to VGA converter box (depending on model, you may also need a BNC(F) to BNC(F) cable). Connect the converter to the Video Out plug on the dongle and then to a monitor using a VGA cable.

NOTE! You may use both thebuilt-inmonitor and a connected monitor simultaneously with this DVR. The image on the external display will be identical to that on thebuilt-inscreen.

PART 4 - DVR CONTROLS

This DVR can be controlled through the USB mouse or by using the the remote control. We have found that the majority of our customers prefer to operate their DVRs using the USB mouse because of its ease of use and flexibility and our manual is set up with this in mind. The remote control allows you to perform most of the day-to-dayfunctions from a convenient distance. It functions as a typical remote control with additional buttons allowing you to navigate through menus and control functions. We recommend that you configure your DVR using the mouse

controls, reserving the remote control for operations such as live viewing, file search and playback.

FRONT AND SIDE PANELS

The front panel of the DVR has minimal features to aid in discretion. The most important item is the Infrared sensor window. This should be kept unobstructed if the remote control is to be used.

The two indicator lights show whether the DVR is currently recording and if it is powered up and operating even if the screen is dark.

In addition to the ports located on the underside of the DVR, there are twin USB ports located on the right side of the monitor frame. Either one can be used for the included USB mouse.

In addition, either port can be used to upload firmware updates or to back up files by inserting a USB flash drive into the port.

REMOTE CONTROL

The buttons on the Remote Control operate in the same manner as on a conventional DVR remote. Some buttons have multiple functions depending on which menu is being accessed. The Remote Control is intended to supplement use of the mouse by providing a simple interface for basic operation once the DVR is set up. Certain functions, such as PTZ control, are simpler when using the remote control.

LEFT CLICK:

Selecting an item

 

Opening a menu

 

Checking a box or motion detection status

 

Selecting letters, numbers or symbols on the virtual keyboard.

DOUBLE CLICK:

Selecting an event for playback

 

Selecting a screen to zoom into from multi-screenmode

VIRTUAL KEYBOARD

The virtual keyboard is contextual. For example, it will only show digits when the field is for numeral entries. In fields where letters and symbols can be entered, users can switch between various formats – numbers, upper case, lower case and symbols – by selecting the white keyboard symbol that will appear to the right of a field where text can be entered. The symbol itself will change to show which keyboard format is available next.

Available keyboards include:

The keyboards are used by clicking on the desired character. Spaces are entered using the symbol and characters are deleted with thekey. Clicking outside of the keyboard will close it.

SCHEDULED RECORDING

To record on a schedule you will need to get to the Record menu as described above and select the cameras on the Schedule row instead of the Manual row.

Next, go to the Main Menu, and click on Settings, and select Schedule. This will open the Schedule menu.

The DVR is programmed with all cameras set to record constantly by default. You may set up your own schedule to meet your specific requirements.

There are six blocks of time you can use to schedule recording and each camera can be individually configured or they all may share the same schedule. In addition, you may set up individual schedules for each day, or you may share the same schedule across every day.

Cameras may be scheduled to record in different modes at different times of the day.

An example of such a mixed schedule is shown in Picture 6-4.In this example, Camera 1 is scheduled to record if motion is detected (MD) from midnight to 8am and then records continuously from 8am to noon (Regular) followed by aone-hourmotion detection recording segment until 1pm before returning to continuous recording after that. Then, at the end of the day, it is in motion detection mode from 5pm to midnight.

The scale running along the bottom of the menu ranges from 0 to 24, representing the hours of a day. You can set starting and ending times to any specific minute you choose.

PART 8 - BACKING UP FILES

The DVR supports backing up to USB flash drives, hard drives, burners, and SD cards.

Plug in a USB device and go to the Main Menu and then clicking on the Backup icon will open the Backup window.

The Backup window will display any connected devices along with available space and status. If you have a device connected to the USB port on the side of the DVR and it does not appear, press the Detect button. If it still does not appear, then use a different USB device.

Once an external USB device is detected, pressing the Backup button will open a new window allowing you to select which files to back up. You can select by channel, start and end times, as well as which type of event; regular recording, alarm, motion detection or all of them.

Click to place a check mark in front of files you want backed up. You can also select all the available files by selecting the box at the top of the list.

PICTURE 7-10

If you need to clear space on your external drive, you can use the Erase button. This will delete ALL files on that device.

IMPORTANT! USB hard drives must be formatted as FAT 32.

Once you have selected the files, press Start to begin the download. A progress bar will be displayed showing estimated time remaining. During the download, the Start button will change to Stop. You can stop the process at any time by pressing the button again.

You can also right-clickout of the menu once the file transfer has begun to go on to other activities without cancelling the download.

PICTURE 7-11

The files will be saved with the following naming format:

SN_CH(channel number)_TYPE_TIME(Year, Month, Date, Hour, Minute, Second)

Therefore, a file shown on the DVR as being a regular record (R), being recorded on 01/04/11 starting at 2:00:00 would have a file name of: 1_01_R_010411020000.dav

The files can be played back using the software included on the CD accompanying this DVR.
