In order to use Wire-Free cameras with your LHB Series DVR, they must be paired to the DVR or wireless receiver. By default, the Wire-Free cameras you receive with your LHB Series DVR are pre-paired and ready to use right out of the package. If for some reason one of the cameras becomes unpaired, or if you have purchased an accessory add-on camera, follow the steps below.
- Your Wire-Free camera must have a fully charged Power Pack inserted into the camera base to complete pairing.
- Keep your Wire-Free camera close to the DVR and do not mount the camera until after pairing is complete.
You have the option to pair cameras to your system using your LHB Series DVR interface, or you may use the Lorex Secure app on your smartphone or tablet.
To pair cameras using the Lorex Secure app:
IMPORTANT: To complete the pairing process using the Lorex Secure app, you must be logged in to the app with the admin account, and your DVR must be turned on and connected to your network.
