3.   Installation and Connection

3.1.     Precautions for Installation

Warning:

Improper battery replacement is at the risk of explosion. The replacement operation is not recommended for users.To replace the battery, use the battery of the same type or equivalent type.

NVR is a special monitoring device which shall be installed by paying attention to the followings:

  • Do not place containers containing (such as water glasses) liquid on the NVR.
  • Install the NVR in a well-ventilated location.Install multiple devices such that they are spaced greater than 2cm.
  • Operate the NVR under allowable temperature (-10℃~+55℃) and humidity (10%~90%). (The H.265 series NVR with RAID mode enabled operates under 0℃~+55℃; the H.265 series NVR E16 with redundancy mode enabled operates under +20℃~+ 55 ℃).
  • Please remove the power cord to cut off the mains power before cleaning the device.
  • Dust on the circuit board within the NVR, when dampened, may result in short circuit. Please regularly brush out dust on the circuit board, connectors, chassis and fan. If dirt is hard to be cleaned, use water-diluted neutral cleaner to remove it and then dry it.
  • Do not use volatile solvents such as alcohol, benzene or diluent to clean the device, neither strong or abrasive cleaners, which may damage the surface coating.
  • Please purchase monitoring-level SATA HDD from regular channels to ensure the quality and use requirements of the HDD. Seagate monitoring-level HDD is recommended.
  • Please ensure that there is no danger due to uneven mechanical loads.
  • Please make sure that the video cable and audio cable have enough space for installation, and the bending radius of the cable should not be less than 5 times the outer diameter of the cable.
  • Please ensure that the NVR is reliably grounded.

Note:

  • When you receive this product, please check against the “packing list” in the packing box. In case of any damage or missing accessories, please contact your vendor immediately.

3.2.     Installing HDD

Our NVR device is not supplied with hard disk. A hard disk needs to be configured and installed according to your recording plan. Disassembly of the chassis and installation of the hard disk must be completed by professionals.

Note:

  • Please use the NVR dedicated monitoring-level hard disk recommended by the hard disk manufacturer.
  • For the maximum number of hard disks installed on the device, refers to the instructions in the hard disk document.
  • Make sure that the power supply is cut off before installation commences.

3.2.1.      Calculation Method of HDD Capacity

Calculate the total capacity required for a hard disk video recorder according to the requirements of video recording (video type, video storage time), as detailed in the Appendix of this Manual.

Example:

Bit RateFile Size/HourBit RateFile Size/Hour
96 Kbps42 m.128 Kbps56 M

  • Encoding: The system supports H.264 and H.265 encoding, and high profile, main profile and baseline encoding methods are available.
  • S+: S+ will display and distinguish the main and secondary streams according to whether it is supported by the front end. After S+ is turned on, compression mode, video quality, I frame rate and key areas will not be available. Some front ends also support mutual exclusion of S+ and intelligent analysis. When S+ is turned on, the intelligent analysis will be turned off.
  • Resolution: Sets the resolution of the front-end device.
  • Corridor Mode: Enables the corridor mode when resolution is 16:9 (for example, 1080P). When corridor mode is enabled, the resolution of the video is adjusted to 9:16.
  • FrameRate: Video frame rate refers to the number of video frames per second that can be selected or edited from a drop-down list.
  • BitRate Type: variable bitrate and fixed bitrate. The variable bitrate will change according to the scenario, and the fixed bitrate will be coded according to the set bitrate as far as possible.
  • BitRate: Can be selected or edited from the drop-down box, range: 32-16384Kbps.
  • Stream type: The composite type provides two options: “Pure Video” and “Audio Video”. “Audio Video” means containing video and audio information, while “Pure Video” contains only video information.
  • Click “More” to display the image quality, I frame rate, audio encoding, audio control type, and input volume setting options.
  • Quality: 5 options including best, better, good, average, poor. Image quality is proportional to the bitrate. The better the image quality is, the higher the bitrate is.
  • I-Frame Interval: I frame, also known as key frame, One I frame is contained in several video frames. If I frame rate is 100, there is one I frame in every 100 frames of video. I frame rate inversely proportional to the bitrate. The higher the I frame rate is, the smaller the bit rate is. It is recommended that the I frame rate be the same as frame rate.
  • Audio: The system provides 3 audio encoding modes: ADPCM_D(ADPCM_DIV4), G.711A and G.711U. Three audio sampling rates of 8K, 32K and 48K are also provided.

  • Input volume: The input volume of the corresponding channel, ranging from 0 to 100.
  • Audio output type: Laser-enabled devices also support the selection of audio output type, including built-in speaker, external audio source and off. When a built-in speaker is selected, you can adjust the output volume.
  • The secondary stream can be set separately. For setting methods, refer to the main stream.

Note:

  • When bitrate type is selected as “fixed bitrate”, the image quality is unavailable.
  • Secondary stream parameters are used for network transmission. When the network environment is not very good, users can use the secondary stream for preview and storage to reduce the bandwidth. In addition, the secondary stream is also suitable for mobile monitoring.

  • Four scenarios are supported for the device. The above steps can be used to set multiple scenes, and scene cruise of different warning types or different linkage items can be realized by setting different cruise periods.
  • The “exploded multi-level audible and visual warning” in perimeter warning works as follows: After a target enters the warning area, the white light flashes strongly and the voice prompt is given. The next level mode is enabled after reaching the retention time, and the linkage laser is switched on.
  • The “progressive multi-levelaudible and visual warning”plan works as follows: Itis divided into three levels by default, and the warning effect is enhanced step by step. When the retention time in the previous level is greater than the set value, the next level is enabled.
  • Up to three levels of linkage can be set for linkage setting in the custom template. The linkage items can be set separately in each level. Among them, linkage tracking and entering the next warning level are mutually exclusive. When the linkage tracking is selected, the next warning level will not be enabled. When linkage tracking is selected, the tracking multiplier shall be set. Adjust the angle and multiplier to determine an appropriate proportion when a target is in the picture when the monitoring scene is furthest. It is recommended that the target occupies more than 1/2 of the picture height. Click to set the tracking multiplier.
  • The normally-on option of linkage white light in linkage setting means that when an alarm occurs, the white light is turned on, and off when the alarm is cleared.
  • Advanced parameters in the custom template include arming weekday, detection mode, trigger alarm target, trigger sensitivity, maximum tracking time, display rules and target frame settings.
  • Warning types are divided into perimeter warning and tripwire warning, which are aimed at intrusion zone, departure zone and crossing behavior. By default, the perimeter warning is an intrusion zone warning, and users can modify the detection mode in the advanced settings of the custom template.
  • Warning detection target is people by default. Users can perform settings in Advanced Settings according their needs.
  • The maximum tracking time is effective when the linkage tracking is enabled, which means that tracking action stops and warning monitoring scene returns when the time is reached. The default is 300 seconds. When it is set to 0 seconds, the dome camera will keep tracking until the target disappears.
