Do not touch the power supply plug or control line during thunder and lightning, as this may result in electric shock.

7

CAUTION

Indicates a potentially hazardous situation which, if mishandled, could

result in moderate or minor personal injury, and/or property damage.

When Installing the Unit

Never plug in nor remove the power supply plug with wet hands, as doing so may cause electric shock.

When unplugging the power supply cord, be sure to grasp the power supply plug; never pull on the cord itself. Operating the unit with a damaged power supply cord may cause a fire or electric shock. When removing the power cord, be sure to hold its plug to pull.

When moving the unit, be sure to remove its power supply cord from the wall outlet. Moving the unit with the power supply cord connected to the outlet may cause damage to the power supply cord, resulting in fire or electric shock.

Do not block the ventilation slots in the unit's cover. Doing so may cause heat to build up inside the unit and result in fire.

Avoid installing the unit in humid or dusty locations, in locations exposed to the direct sunlight, near the heaters, or in locations generating sooty smoke or steam as doing otherwise may result in fire or electric shock.

Do not connect a network terminal exposed to excessive voltage to the 100BASE-TX terminal, Hard disk expansion unit connection terminal or Remote control I/O terminal A, as doing so may result in fire or electric shock.

When the Unit is in Use

Do not place heavy objects on the unit as this may cause it to fall or break which may result in personal injury and/or property damage. In addition, the object itself may fall off and cause injury and/or damage.

Clean the unit periodically. Contact your TOA dealer regarding the cleaning. If dust is allowed to accumulate in the unit over a long period of time, a fire may result.

If dust accumulates on the power supply plug or in the wall AC outlet, a fire may result. Clean it periodically. In addition, insert the plug in the wall outlet securely.

Switch off the power, and disconnect the power supply plug from the AC outlet when cleaning or leaving the unit unused for long periods of time. Doing otherwise may cause a fire or electric shock.

2. HANDLING PRECAUTIONS

The supplied power supply cord is designed for exclusive use with the Digital Video Recorder. Never use it with other equipment.

Do not connect the10BASE-T/100BASE-TX terminal, Hard disk expansion unit connection terminal or Remote control I/O terminal A to networks that could be exposed to excessive electrical voltage. Failure to follow this instruction could result in electric shock or fire.

It is recommended that the Recorder be always used in locations where the ambient temperature ranges from +5°C to +40°C (41°F to 104°F) and humidity levels of less than 80% to ensure that no condensation is formed.

When moving the Recorder, first disconnect its power supply plug from the AC outlet and then wait at least 30 seconds before moving.

Avoid moving the Recorder suddenly from a cold location to a warm location, or installing it in close proximity to an air-conditioner outlet, as internal condensation could result. When condensation occurs, do not switch on the power until the Recorder has sufficiently dried. Also, when brought into a warm room from the cold outdoors, be sure to leave it unused for at least half a day before using it.

Avoid installing the Recorder in humid or dusty locations, or in locations exposed to direct sunlight, sooty smoke or steam. Note that even in locations which are not particularly dusty, dust may accumulate at the Recorder’s ventilation slots. Because this could cause an extreme rise in temperature inside the Recorder, be sure to clean the ventilation slots periodically after switching off the power and disconnecting the power supply plug from the AC outlet. It is highly recommended that the ventilation slots be cleaned once a year.

When cleaning the Recorder, be sure to switch off the power. Wipe with a soft dry cloth. If it gets very dirty, use the soft cloth slightly moistened in neutral cleanser. Never use volatile spirits like thinner, benzine, or alcohol. Such chemicals may damage its plastic surface.

Do not block the ventilation slots or cooling fan, which could cause the temperature inside the Recorder to rise, possibly resulting in unit failure. Install the Recorder at least 100 mm (3.9 inch) away from the nearest wall surface.

Since the Recorder is equipped with a cooling fan, a motor sound is generated. Avoid installing the Digital Video Recorder in locations which resonate electrical motor noise.

Do not install the Recorder in locations influenced by strong electrical or magnetic fields, as monitor screen pictures may become distorted or the Recorder could fail.

The Recorder can be used only in a commercial and industrial area. Operation of this equipment in a residential area is likely to cause radio disturbance and TV interference.

Avoid jarring or striking the Recorder. The Recorder is a piece of precision equipment and accidentally dropping it or subjecting it to strong impacts could cause its failure. When transporting the Recorder, carefully pack it in the supplied carton to protect it from shock.

Avoid using the Recorder in locations exposed to vibration. The Recorder is a piece of precision equipment, as this may cause the unit malfunction.

Avoid installing the Recorder vertically or tilting it at extreme angles, since it is designed to be used in a horizontal position only.

About the hard disks

If the hard disk fails, recorded data cannot be restored.

Save important recordings to DVD-R/RW disks.

Recordings copied from video images or video recordings with registered copyrights may not be used for commercial purposes other than for private use without express permission from the copyright holder.

10

TOA takes no responsibility for any incidental damage, such as loss of sales opportunities, that may result.

Avoid using the camera in line-locked mode. Failure to do so may cause the displayed camera images to flicker. Also, video may be lost if power frequency fluctuates significantly.

For models with a single hard disk (versions with model number suffix -08, -1, D08 or D1), the mirror mode is available only when the hard disk expansion unit is connected.

The possibility of data loss due to hard disk failure is greatly reduced, increasing reliability.

12

High Picture Quality and High Frame Rate

Recording and playback can be simultaneously performed at a maximum of 120 IPS. (Image compression method: Motion-JPEG.) Picture quality can be adjusted in five levels, allowing high quality recording or extended recording according to the intended purpose of use. Picture quality and recording intervals can be freely set for individual cameras and recording system.

Auto-recording

The Digital Video Recorder starts recording shortly after power on and makes recordings by preset schedule. The auto-recording function permits Normal recording and Alarm event recording, for each of which different setting can be performed. (Refer to p. 79; Auto-recording setting.)

Network Function

Use this function to remotely monitor or control cameras connected to the Digital Video Recorder, or search or play back their recorded images on a PC web browser.

Email Function

Email can be transmitted when an alarm event or failure occurs. Up to 4 destination addresses can be programmed.

Cascade Connections

Cascade-connecting 8 Digital Video Recorders permits camera images of up to 128 cameras to be viewed on a single monitor display. Up to 4 C-RM1000 Remote Controllers can be connected in a system, allowing each controller to control all Digital Video Recorders and Combination Cameras. (Refer to p. 20; Connections.)

Archive Function

Recorded images can be copied onto the DVD-R/RW (available to model with DVD) or to the USB memory. Viewer software is also downloaded at the same time. (Refer to p. 51; Archive.)

Security Function

Two security settings, using a password and USB key lock, are made available. The use of both methods ensures the highest security. (Refer to p. 60; About security setting.)

Hard disk expansion

Up to 2 Hard Disk Expansion units of C-DA1000-1 (1.2 TB) and/or C-DA1000-2 (2.4 TB) can be connected per Digital Video Recorder. UP to 4.8 TB can be added to the Digital Video Recorder’s hard disk capacity.

C-DR091 Series

C-DR161 Series

M4 x 12 binding head screw (supplied with the MB-23B)

M5 x 12 binding head screw

MB-23B (optional)

(supplied with the MB-23B)

M5 fiber washer

(supplied with the MB-23B)

Note

Use the Digital Video Recorder in locations with ambient temperature of between +5°C and +40°C (41°F and 104°F). When rack-mounting the Digital Video Recorder, the ambient temperature must be kept 35°C (95°F) or below.

Be sure to mount the Digital Video Recorder below the heat generating components, and mount the perforated panel between the Recorder and such a heat generating component as required.

The Digital Video Recorder has a built-in cooling fan. Never block the Recorder’s ventilation slot.

Avoid installing the Digital Video Recorder in locations exposed to vibration.

a)Elevated Operating Ambient Temperature - If installed in a closed or multi-unit rack assembly, the operating ambient temperature of the rack environment may be greater than room ambient. Therefore, consideration should be given to installing the equipment in an environment compatible with the manufacturer's maximum rated ambient temperature (Tmra).

b)Reduced Air Flow - Installation of the equipment in a rack should be such that the amount of air flow required for safe operation of the equipment is not compromised.

c)Mechanical Loading - Mounting of the equipment in the rack should be such that a hazardous condition is not achieved due to uneven mechanical loading.

d)Circuit Overloading - Consideration should be given to the connection of the equipment to the supply circuit and the effect that overloading of circuits might have on overcurrent protection and supply wiring. Appropriate consideration of equipment nameplate ratings should be used when addressing this concern.

e)Reliable Earthing - Reliable earthing of rack-mounted equipment should be maintained. Particular attention should be given to supply connections other than direct connections to the branch circuit (e.g., use of power strips).

15. RECORDING

15.1. Before Recording

Auto-recordings are normally performed according to the preprogrammed schedule. Operations to start recording such as pressing the key are not required. You can also make recording by pressing the Priority Recording key outside the scheduled time period. Perform disk mode and overwrite settings before recording.

15.1.1. Disk mode

Normal and mirror modes are available to this mode. For models with a single hard disk (versions with a model number suffix -08, -1, D08 or D1), Mirror settings are available only when the hard disk expansion unit is connected. (Refer to p. 101; Equipment maintenance.)

Notes

When the disk mode is changed, the hard disk is initialized, causing the recorded images to be erased. Be sure to determine the disk mode before use.

Unless the disk mode setting is performed, mirror recording cannot be performed as the hard disk is factorypreset to normal mode.

Normal mode: When the first hard disk finishes recording, the second hard disk automatically begins to record. When the settings (recording rate and picture quality) of both normal and mirror modes are set to be identical, the recording time for normal mode is about twice that of mirror mode. The total recording rate is 120 IPS maximum.

Mirror mode: The same image is simultaneously recorded on both hard disks. Even if one of the two hard disks fails, the other hard disk continues to record, allowing all recorded images to be played back. The total recording rate is 60 IPS maximum. Set the disk mode to Mirror when performing mirroring by the two built-in hard disks or when performing mirroring by the built-in hard disk and the hard disk expansion unit.

15.1.2. Recording order to hard disks

Recordings to the built-in hard disks are performed in the following order.

Normal mode

Mirror mode

One hard disk

Two hard disks

One hard disk

Two hard disks

HDD A

HDD A

HDD A

HDD A

 

HDD B

Note

For the recording operation when the expansion unit is connected, refer to the instruction manual enclosed with the expansion unit.

38

15.1.3. Disk recording mode

Overwriting of hard disk recordings can be set to Overwrite or Write Protect. (Refer to p. 76; Recording Settings.)

Overwrite: When all hard disks become full, previous recorded older data is automatically deleted and replaced with newer data.

Write Protect: When all hard disks become full, recording is stopped. To begin recording again, initialize the hard disk and reactivate the Digital Video Recorder, or set the disk-recording mode to "Overwrite."

15.2. Recording Mode

The following recording modes are available to the Digital Video Recorder. Priorities are 1, 2 and 3 in that order.

15.3. Priority Recording

Priority recording is given higher priority over Auto-recording. Use this recording mode to check recording details when, for example, a suspicious person intrudes or when making recording outside the scheduled time period. In the Priority Recording settings, the following settings can be made for individual cameras: recording ON/OFF, recording rate, picture quality and audio ON/OFF. (Refer to p. 77; Priority Recording setting.)

15.3.1. How to perform priority recording

1.Press the Priority Recording key to start the priority recording. To stop a buzzer sound, press the Buzzer Stop key.

2.Hold down the Priority Recording key for 2 seconds or more to terminate the priority recording.

Notes

Priority recording can be started by any of the following ways.

Input the signal to the Priority recording input terminal on the rear panel.

Press the Remote Controller's Priority Recording key.

39

15.4. Auto Recording (Alarm Event Recording and Normal Recording)

With auto-recording, recordings are made according to a preset schedule, which can include up to twelve different programs. If one or more programs have duplicate execution times, the program with a largest number takes precedence. Settable items for each program include: Day of the Week; Start/End Times; and Operation. Up to six settings groups, named A through F, can be made for “Operation,” and recording settings for Normal and Alarm recording can also be registered. Further, up to sixty “special day” operational settings can also be made, with operation controlled by different programs, motion detection areas for individual cameras, and audio recording during autorecording. (Refer to p. 79; Auto-Recording Settings.)

Notes

If the Alarm display interval is set to "0" second, no full-screen display is performed and the current display status is maintained.

If an alarm event occurs outside the scheduled time period, Alarm Event recording is not performed.

15.4.1. Alarm event recording

Alarm Event recording includes both “Alarm Input” and “Motion Detection” recording. For Alarm Event recording, settable items for each individual camera include: Recording ON/OFF; Recording Rate; and Picture Quality. It is also possible to set, for each recording mode, the type of events that will cause recording to begin. (Refer to p. 82; Alarm Event Recording Setting.)

For Alarm Event recording mode, it is possible to set the type of recording operation to be performed when multiple events have occurred simultaneously. Setting the mode to “Sequence” allows two or more events to be set for individual cameras. For Alarm Input recording time, set both alarm input mode and post alarm time intervals. For Motion Detection, set both motion detection mode and post-motion alarm time. (Refer to p. 80; Setting of groups A-F.)

When an alarm event occurs, the corresponding camera’s image is switched to full-screen display until the preset alarm time interval has elapsed, after which the display reverts to the original screen display. (Refer to p. 86; Screen Display Setting.)

Alarm input recording: Alarm Input recording begins when signals are received at the alarm input terminal on the rear panel. Use Event settings to link cameras that are to have their images recorded and alarm input terminal. If “Sequence” is selected, up to four alarm input terminals can be set optionally per camera. If “Last” is selected, the “Alarm ON/OFF” can be set only for the alarm input terminal with a number corresponding to that of the camera.

Motion detected recording: Motion Detection recording begins when motion is detected in a camera image. Use Motion Settings to set the motion detection area, sensitivity, and activation. Use Event settings to link cameras that are to have their images recorded and cameras that are to use motion detection. If “Sequence” is selected as the alarm event recording mode, then up to four alarm input terminals can be set optionally per camera. If “Last” is selected, the “Alarm ON/OFF” can be set only for the alarm input terminal with a number corresponding to that of the camera.

40

15.4.2. Normal recording

This function automatically records camera images set by schedule. For Normal recording, settable items for each individual camera include: Recording ON/OFF; Recording Rate; and Picture Quality. (Refer to p. 81; Normal Recording setting.) Recordings can be made on scheduled patterns like "day and night," and "weekdays and holidays” by combining two or more programs.

15.5. Pre-Recording

This function records images immediately before Priority recording or Alarm Event recording is initiated. Setting the Pre-Recording interval to 1 second or more allows Pre-Recording to be performed. In PreRecording, the recording rate and picture quality cannot be individually set for each camera. Instead, recording rate, picture quality, and audio ON/OFF settings are common to all connected cameras. The maximum recording rate per camera is 4 IPS. (Refer to p. 85; Pre-Recording setting.)

Pre-Recording can be performed under the following conditions.

When Priority recording begins while recording is stopped.

When an alarm event occurs and alarm even recording begins while a schedule in which Normal Recording is not available but Alarm Event Recording is available is in operation.

Note: Pre-Recording cannot be performed during Normal Recording.

15.6. Recording State

The Digital Video Recorder permits recordings to be set to best meet user requirements.

15.9. Recording Rate

The recording rate indicates the number of images to be recorded per second and is expressed by the unit IPS (Image Per Second). In the Digital Video Recorder, the total recording rate is the sum of each camera’s recording rate and recordings can be made for up to 120 IPS in normal mode and for up to 60 IPS in mirror recording mode. The maximum recording rate that can be set per camera is 60 IPS.

The recording rate to be set on the menu screen is displayed, rounded up. The following table shows the relationship of menu screen display vs. actual recording rate.

Menu screen display

The total recording rate is calculated by the actual recording rate in the above table. If, for example, each of 16 cameras is set to a menu screen display value of 8 IPS, the total recording rate is 120 IPS since the actual per-unit recording rate is 7.5 IPS.

Also, if a recording rate of 1/2 IPS or less (1/2 -1/60) is designated, the total rate is calculated using the rate of 0.937500.

15.10. Recording time

Recording time varies depending on the settings described below.

For recording time, refer to p. 116, "Recording timetable" as a guide.

HDD Capacity (80 GB - 600 GB)

18. ARCHIVE

The Digital Video Recorder is equipped with an archive function that transfers image data recorded on the hard disk to DVD-R/RW disk (available only to models with DVD drives) or USB memory. Camera image data designated between start position and end position can be archived. Since dedicated viewer software is also downloaded at the same time, archived images can be easily played back on a PC.

Note

Archive operation can be performed only at the operation level 1. When the security has been set, perform archive operation after login to the Operation Level 1.

Two methods can be used to designate the archiving range.

• Designate the archiving range after entering date and time. •Designate the archiving range while viewing the playback image.

[ Archiving to USB memory devices ]

Notes

Connect the USB memory device to the copy terminal of the Digital Video Recorder.

Only mass storage class devices (those recognized as "USB mass storage memory devices" under Windows 2000/XP) can be used.

Compatible with USB 1.1 devices only. Not compatible with USB 2.0 devices.

USB memory devices formatted with FAT12/FAT16 can only be used.

It is not possible to play back video files copied to the USB memory device on the Digital Video Recorder. Connect the USB device to a PC and use viewer software to play back files.

If USB memory is removed when USB archive is in progress, the Digital Video Recorder will then be unable to recognize USB memory. Be sure to remove it after finishing archiving or after archive operation is stopped.

[ Archiving to DVD media (models with DVD drives only) ]

Notes

Usable media: DVD-R, DVD-RW

Unusable media: DVD-R DL, DVD+R/RW, DVD+R DL, and DVD-RAM

Data cannot be added to DVD media after the initial copying. If using a DVD-RW, first erase any existing data on the disc before using it. (This must be done on a PC and cannot be done on the Digital Video Recorder.)

It is not possible to play back video files copied to a DVD on the main unit. Insert the DVD in the drive of a compatible computer and use viewer software to play back files.

Do not play DVDs copied on the Digital Video Recorder in a standard DVD player as doing so risks damaging the DVD player.

Playback cannot be performed on a PC if the power is turned off during DVD archiving, as archiving is not complete, making it impossible to recognize DVD media.

51

18.1. Archiving & Transfer Times

Refer to the table below for time required to archive or transfer files to USB memory devices or DVD media. Times are shown for the files of the set maximum size.

When archive begins, viewer software (capacity: about 300 KB) is also downloaded at the same time.

18.4.4. About error messages

The following error messages are displayed if an error should occur during archiving:

Terminated for lack of available media space.

This message is displayed when the data size to be archived exceeds the destination media capacity and shows that the archiving is aborted, as the media is full with data already written. To continue archiving, insert a new media and perform archiving again.

Transfer error has been detected.

This message is displayed if archiving media is not inserted or connected. Ensure that the media is correctly inserted or connected.

If the inserted disk already has included data, the transfer error message is displayed. In such cases, replace it with a new disk.

Start and end positions not correctly set.

This message is displayed when the times of start and end positions are entered in reverse order. Reset correctly.

Nothing found.

Displayed when the time that no recording data exists is designated or when no existing camera is designated.

18.5. When Viewing Saved Data

18.5.1. PC Operating conditions and image data

OS: Windows 2000/XP

CPU: Pentium II, 400 MHz or faster

Memory: At least 64 MB

Hard Disk Capacity: 10 MB or more

Image data is saved as JPEG files at a resolution of 720 X 240. Playing files using the special viewer software downloaded at the time of archiving will change the resolution to 720 X 480.

56

18.5.2. Folder Configuration and File Name

Notes

Special Viewer Software:

This software is downloaded to the target media during archiving. Its functions include resizing copied videos, continuous or frame advance playback, and tampering/alteration check.

Folders Numbered by Archiving Session:

It is possible to divide archived data into folders by designating multiple start and end times when archiving. When adding new files to USB memory devices, the new folders are numbered starting by automatically adding 1 to the largest existing folder number. Folder numbers are from 0001 to 9999.

Folders Numbered by Date:

A separate folder is created for each copy session with a different date, with each folder name shown as a set of numbers indicating "YEAR MONTH DAY". For example, a folder named "06 07 20" refers to a folder created on July 20th, 2006.

Folders Numbered by Camera:

A separate folder can be created for each camera number. If there are nine cameras, for example, then these folders will be numbered 01 through 09 (or 01 through 16 if there are 16 cameras), with JPEG files stored therein.

File Names:

File names are comprised of “HOUR MINUTE SECOND, SCREEN NUMBER”. HOUR is from 00–23. MINUTE is from 0–59. SECOND is from 0–59. SCREEN NUMBER, from 01–60, differentiates frames taken at the same time. (The number of frames will vary depending on the recording rate set for each camera.) The extension on all file names is .jpg.

For example, a file named "13 05 49 08.jpg" refers to file created as the 8th frame taken at the time 13:05:49.

57

Operation Level 2 Live and recorded images can be monitored, however setting changes and archiving cannot be operated. Entering the corresponding password gives access to Operation Level 2.

Operation Level 3 Only recorded images can be monitored. The Priority Recording key can be used if settings are performed(*1). Entering the corresponding password gives access to Operation Level 3.

Full-Lock

No operation possible. If Operation Level 3 is valid (Password 3 has been set), the system

automatically switches to “Full-Lock” mode when the user logs out of Operation Level 3 or when the

 

 

log-out interval elapses.

Log-Out Time

Can be set to 1, 5, 10, 30 or 60 minutes or OFF.

 

If no operations are performed for a pre-set period of time after log-in, the system automatically logs

 

out, moving to the lowest set operation level.

 

[Example] When Operation Levels 1 and 2 are valid (Passwords 1 and 2 have been set),

 

the operation level after log-out is Level 3.

 

 

Priority recording

Selecting ON permits the Priority Recording key to be used even when Operation Level 3 is valid.

operator Level 3

If OFF is selected, the Priority Recording key cannot be used when Operation Level 3 is valid.

A Fan Malfunction error occurs if the cooling fan is broken or has been interrupted by some foreign object. The time at which the fan malfunctioned can be confirmed by looking at the error log. If the fan is malfunctioning, a "*" mark is also displayed at the bottom right of the screen.

Note

A fan malfunction on an expansion unit will not be displayed by the Digital Video Recorder. Confirm fan malfunctions via the LED display on the front of the expansion unit.

Fan Malfunction occurs

20.4.1. If a fan malfunction occurs....

First turn the power off. Operating the Digital Video Recorder without a functioning fan can cause heat buildup, potentially leading to burns or malfunction. Therefore, it is important to pull out the power supply plug immediately.

If the malfunction has been caused by the presence of a foreign object in the fan, remove the object.

If the fan is simply broken, it will need to be replaced. Consult your TOA dealer for more information.

20.5. “Hard Disk Full” Warning

If the overwrite setting is set to "Overwrite Protect” and the hard disk drive begins to run out of free space, a Remaining Capacity Warning begins. If no recording time remains, a Hard Disk Full error occurs. The time at which the Remaining Capacity Warning started or at which the hard disk became too full to record further, can be confirmed by looking at the error log.

20.5.1. If the hard disk becomes full....

This will cancel the Hard Disk Full status. To set the overwrite setting to "Overwrite Protect" again, set the overwrite setting to "Overwrite Protect."

Hard Disk Full status can be cancelled by initializing the hard disk and restart the power.

Note

Initializing the disk will cause all video and other data stored on it to be erased. If any of the data on the disk is needed, be sure to copy it to another location before initializing the disk.

20.6. Operation Following Restoration From a Power Outage

20.6.1. Monitor Display

After a power outage, check the system, then display the live screen according to screen display settings when Monitors 1 and 2 are started in the menu.

20.6.2. Recording

[If the power outage occurred during Normal video recording....]

Normal recording is made according to the set schedule.

[If the power outage occurred during an Alarm Event video recording....]

Alarm Event recording is reset. If the Alarm Event continues after the power is restored, then Alarm Event recording resumes.

[If the power outage occurred during a Priority recording....]

Priority recording resumes after the power is resorted. If the Priority Recording Input mode is set to "Edge," then Priority recording resumes for a set post-alarm recording interval after the power is restored. If the Priority Recording Input mode is set to "Level," then Priority recording resumes after the power has been restored and continues until it is canceled at the Digital Video Recorder or remote controller.

23.2.4. Motion Detection Settings

Motion detection settings can be individually performed for each camera. By setting the area range to be detected, movement within the camera image can be automatically detected. Alarm Event Recordings begin whenever image movement is detected. (Refer to p. 83; Event setting)

Notes

Motion is detected by sensing changes in brightness and contour movement. For dark images, since the brightness change is minute, set an appropriate sensitivity relative to camera's brightness level. Also, motion is hard to detect for out-of-focus images. Be sure to adjust the focus so that the image does not blur even when the ambient light level becomes low.

In some cases, motion cannot be detected or false motion is detected depending on the motion sensitivity or brightness level of the images.

This function is not a dedicated device for prevention of burglar, fire and etc. TOA takes no responsibility for any incidental loss or accidents.
