This guide will show you how to navigate through the different functions on your Network Video Recorder. If your recorder doesn't look the same as these photos, you may be using an older firmware. Use these steps to help you:
Right click on the screen, enter your password if asked, click OK, and then compare what you see with the 3 below images. Click on the image that matches what you see, and you will be brought to the correct post.
1) Right click anywhere onscreen.
2) Enter your password, if prompted, and then left-click the house icon, top-left.
3) Click Playback, circled in red on the left.
4) Select the camera, circled left, that you would like to search. Select only one at a time to ensure the timeline is easily readable.
5) Select the month and day you would like to search on by using the calendar on the left.
6) By default, the timeline shows a 24 hour period. Use the Zoom tool, circled bottom-right, to zoom in on the timeline. You will also notice the areas of broken red lines. That represents where motion was detected, while the grey areas are blank, since no activity was detected.
Here, the timeline is zoomed into a 20 minute span, although you can go anywhere from a 24-hour to a 5 minute span. This way, you can find a specific event much easier.
1) Click on the Scissors icon, circled bottom-left.
2) Click and drag the white brackets, circled in blue on the timeline, to select the clips you would like to save. You can also use the zoom tool to help you select the correct clips.
3) Plug a USB flash drive into your NVR if you haven’t already once you have your brackets in the right places. This is what will save to your flash drive.
4) Click Export Clip, circled in blue, bottom-middle-right.
5) Click on Video and Log, and click OK.
6) Click New Folder, circled in blue.
7) Give the folder a name you will recognize as being clips from this event. Click OK when done.
8) Click on the circled red line and drag the column over only if you cannot tell which folder is the one that has just been created.
9) Double-click on the folder that has just been created.
10) Click OK.
11) Click on the circled icon, top-right, to view the progress of the file transfer. DO NOT unplug the flash drive until the process is 100% complete, or else you will not have all of your clips.
In other words, make sure all bars in this area are showing 100% before disconnecting your flash drive.
13) Click Export Clip once more.
14) Click Player, and then click OK.
15) Double-click the folder that has just been created once more.
16) Click OK.
A progress bar will appear. This is for the video player that is used to play your clips.(Alternately, VLC player will also play these clips. Other players are incapable because of the specific codecs that these clips are encoded on.)
17) Click on the Scissors icon again to deactivate the Export function, and disconnect your flash drive.
