2 Basic Operations

Powering on the Device

zEnsure that the HDVR is correctly connected to a power supply, and a display is correctly connected to the high definition multimedia interface (HDMI) or video graphics array (VGA) port of the HDVR before power-on.

zIn some environments, abnormal power supply may cause the failure of the HDVR to work properly and even damage the HDVR in severe cases. It is recommended to use a regulated power supply to power the HDVR in such environments.

After the HDVR is connected to a power supply, the power indicator is steadily on. Start the HDVR. The real-time video screen is displayed, as shown in Figure 2-1.

Figure 2-1 Real-time video screen

Users need to provide a hard disk for the HDVR. The hard disk is strictly detected during device startup. If the detection result failed, the possible causes are as follows:

2.4 Adding Cameras

This HDVR can be connected to both analog cameras and network cameras.

The HDVR can be directly connected to analog cameras through bayonet nut connector (BNC) cables.

After the HDVR is connected to a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) network, it automatically obtains an IP address, and searches for and adds network cameras in the same network segment.

If an analog camera and network camera coexist in the same network segment, the HDVR gives preference to the access of the analog camera by default.
