Boot up and Shutdown
Before the boot up, please make sure:
- For device security, please connect the NVR to the power adapter first and then connect the device to the power socket.
- The rated input voltage matches the device power on-off button. Please make sure the power wire connection is OK. Then click the power on-off button.
- Always use the stable current, if necessary UPS is a best alternative measure.
Please follow the steps listed below to boot up the device. 1. Connect the device to the monitor and then connect a mouse. 2. Connect power cable. 3. Click the power button at the front or rear panel and then boot up the device. After device booted up, the system is in multiple-channel display mode by default.

System consists of four accounts:

- Username: 666666. Password: 666666(Lower authority user who can only monitor, playback, backup and etc.)
- Username: default. Password: default (hidden user). Hidden user “default” is for system interior use only and can not be deleted. When there is no login user, hidden user “default” automatically login. You can set some rights such as monitor for this user so that you can view some channel view without login.
