Q: Does it support power input of 220v?
A: This system supports 220V power input. The system power supply supports AC 110V-240V input.
Q: Instead of mounting a camera outdoors, can I position it indoors aimed at a windowï¼Ÿ
A: Yes, you can position camera indoor aimed at a windows, it works fine in day time but at night it doesnâ€™t. The camera has 36 pcs IR led working for night vision, the window glass will reflect the infrared light to the camera lens, so you won't see anything in night vision mood.
Q: What type of hard drive can I replace the current one with?
A: The hard drive is 3.5 inch internal SATA HDD, you could buy one and install it into the NVR box, go into system setup>>HDD setup, choose the hard drive and format it, the HDD will work.
This system supports up to 6TB hard drive, and if the hard drive is over 2TB, we suggest you purchase a 12V3A power supply for NVR box, the bigger hard drive needs more power.
Q: Cameras work well in day time, but at night I can't see anything.
A: There are several possible reasons for this case:
Installation error: Please don't place the camera next to the wall or towards something reflective, they reflect light strongly, so you will not see anything in night vision; Please don't turn the camera toward a very empty place or a large area, there would not be enough reflected light so that you won't see anything in night vision; Please don't place the camera indoors toward the window; the window glass will reflect the infrared light to the camera lens, so you won't see anything in night vision.
Solution: Please adjust the camera angle or change the camera's position.
Q: When I first install the system, after initializing, the screen is black, what is the problem?
A: That is because your TV/Monitor doesnâ€™t support Full HD picture, please change another TV, or connect the NVR system to TV/Monitor by VGA cable, the video resolution transmit by VGA is lower than HD picture.
If the above problem occurs in the case of VGA connection, please use HDMI to connect the system with TV, go into System setup>> Screen setup, use drop-down box to select a lower resolution for VGA resolution that your computer monitor supports, then use VGA to connect the system with your computer monitor.
PS: Some Japanese brand of TV only support 1080p@60Hz.

Q: Connect the NVR and my router directly with a network cable, but Cloud ID is still offline.
A: Please check if your Router has internet access or not; please check if the network cable is good or not, the LAN light blinks or not in the rear panel of the NVR when inserting the network cable; If all is good, please check the box DHCP in System setup>> Network setup, click Ok, exit the menu and reboot the system by right clicking the mouse, select Exit System; after Cloud ID is online, you could uncheck the DHCP box.
