IP Cameras: Locked error message after changing password

If you have changed your IP cameras password and receive a Locked error message on your NVR, it is because your NVR is trying to access the cameras with an older password. When you change your password on your IP camera, update the password information on the NVR as well.

The following instructions require you to access your system using your DVR / NVR and a monitor.

To update your IP camera password on your NVR:

  1. Power cycle your IP camera. To power cycle your IP camera, please power it off and disconnect the power source for approximately 5 minutes. Reconnect, and power back on the IP camera.

  2. Right-click on the Live View of your NVR to access the Quick Menu, and then click Device Search.

  3. Log in to your NVR by entering your login information. Refer to your user manual for your default Username and Password.

  4. Click Device Search to search and display IP cameras connected to the local area network (LAN) or NVR in the Remote Device window.
