LNR Series: Connecting IP cameras through a network

IP cameras can be connected directly to an LNR Series NVR, or connected through the network using a router, or a Power over Ethernet (PoE) switch.

To connect IP cameras using a router or PoE switch:

  1. Right-click on the Live View to access the Quick Menu.

  2. Click Device Search.

  3. Log in using your administrator login information. Refer to your user manual for your default Username and Password. The system will search the network for compatible cameras. This may take a few moments depending on the network.

    REMINDER: If you are unable to log in due to a forgotten password, contact Technical Support for a password reset. For security reasons passwords cannot be reset using the online support system.

  4. Select the camera you would like to add. If the camera does not appear in the search results, disconnect the camera. Wait 30 seconds and reconnect.

    REMINDER: The camera may take up to 2 minutes to display after initially connected.

  5. Click Add, the status indicator will turn green if the camera is successfully connected.
