HD Install

The system may not include a hard disk, depending on the kit you selected. The NVR works most 3.5″ SATA HDD or 2.5″ SATA HDD.

  1. Unplug your NVR from power, unscrew it, and remove the top cover.
  2. Connect the SATA power and data cables from the NVR to the corresponding ports on your HDD (as shown).

3. Holding the hard drive and the DVR, gently turn it over and line up the holes on the hard drive with the holes on the NVR. Using a Phillips screwdriver, screw the provided screws into the holes and assemble the cover.

Note: New HDDs have to be formatted before recording. To get a better wireless signal, the NVR had to be placed in an open area and in a high position.

Network Setup

Wireless NVR supports two ways to access the Internet: wired and wireless (supported by some models). The two Internet access modes are set as follows:

Wired Internet Access

Before leaving the factory, the NVR kit is already matched with the code; the image will come out when the kit is powered. If you need to add it again, Please delete the corresponding channel in the “Video Management” interface and add it as follows:

Step 1: Plug NVR and cameras to power; after NVR starts, right-click the mouse → Wireless add → match-code interface; NVR will search for the camera under the matching code model automatically.

Step 2: Wireless IP Camera has two kinds, including a camera with RJ45 connector and a camera without RJ45 connector, their way to match the code is as below:

  1. For a camera with an RJ45 connector, after the start, use a network cable to connect with NVR and match the code automatically; no need to restore it.
  2. For a camera without an RJ45 connector, after the start, hold the bottom line of the camera for 5 seconds to get into match code mode; it will match the code automatically; there is no need to connect the network cable.

Step 3: When you can find the IP address of the camera on the screen, the matching code is complete, and click “Exit” to finish.

Notes: For a camera without an RJ45 connector, the process of getting into the matching code will last 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, please restore the camera to get into the matching code model again.

Extend Wireless Range

Wireless connection is simple and convenient, but wireless is not a panacea! Because of the nature of wireless, in some complicated scenarios, there is a signal attenuation after passing through the obstacle. Following some methods can circumvent obstacles and increase the signal transmission distance.

Position the Antenna Correctly

As can be seen from the gain graph of the rod antenna below, the signal coverage of the antenna is similar to an apple. The antenna is located in the center of the apple and surrounds the antenna. The signal is strong, and the upper and lower ends of the antenna are recessed, and the signal is weak.

Rod antenna gain vs. coverage

According to the transmission characteristics of the antenna to the signal, in order to ensure the optimal image transmission effect of the wireless set, Claim:

  1. NVR and IPC antennas should be placed in high places, not on the walls; metal obstructions such as glass affect the signal to diverge outward.
  2. The IPC antenna should be placed parallel to the NVR antenna to maximize the respective radiation direction angles. In contrast, the maximum coverage of the signal is formed, as shown in the following figure.

Use Antenna Extension Cord to prolong Wireless distance

Installation method of antenna extension cord

Notes: When a wireless signal is not strong enough against walls, users can take off the original antenna and substitute the antenna extension cord. Drill a hole in the wall to let the extension cord go through, and simply put it where the wireless signal is strong.

Set Up Cascading Connection in a Reasonable Solution, Extend WiFi Signal Transfer Distance


  1. The repeater function can’t strengthen the wireless signal for the wireless NVR kit, but it can extend the distance through repeaters—wireless cameras.
  2. Only when the repeater cameras and repeated cameras are positioned correctly the wireless distance will be extended.
  3. Repeater function and 3-meter antenna extension cord are two methods to extend wireless range. Users can choose one according to the real situation.

Repeater Setup

Repeater Setup Guide

Follow these steps to set up a repeater connection for your NVR system to extend wireless range and improve connectivity:

Step 1: Access Video Management

  • Navigate to the GUI: Right-click on the NVR’s GUI.
  • Open Repeater Settings: Left-click on “video management,” then select “repeater” from the submenu.

Step 2: Add a Repeater

  • Choose a Channel: Click the “+” icon next to channel 3, then select another channel from the list as shown in the illustration below.

Step 3: Establish Connections

  • Connection Overview: This step visualizes how the cameras are interconnected:
    • IPC1 is connected to NVR through IPC2 and IPC3.
    • IPC2 connects to the NVR via IPC3.
    • IPC3 connects directly to the NVR.
    See the diagram below for a clearer representation.

Step 4: Confirm Settings

  • Apply Changes: Click on “Apply” to save the configurations.
  • Refresh the System: Click “refresh” to update the system settings and check if the repeater setup is successful.

Delete Repeater

Move the mouse to targeted channels, left-click to delete, and then click
“Apply” and “OK”.

Application Example

Extending Wireless Range with IPCAMs:

As illustrated in the scenario described, when IPCAM1 is positioned outside of the NVR’s direct wireless range and IPCAM2 is strategically placed between them with a strong wireless signal:

  • Positioning: Place IPCAM1 close to the NVR initially to ensure connectivity and power it up.
  • Configuration: Set up IPCAM1 to repeat the signal received from IPCAM2. This step is crucial for extending the range effectively.
  • Installation: Once the repeater setup is confirmed to be working, move IPCAM1 to its intended location, which was previously out of range.

This example demonstrates how to leverage the capabilities of IPCAM2 to extend the operational range of IPCAM1, ensuring comprehensive coverage even in areas initially out of direct range from the NVR.
