LNR Series: Setting up your NVR

You can set up your LNR Series NVR to be used with a monitor (not included) and wired mouse (included).

LNR Series Setting Up

To set up your LNR Series NVR:

  1. Connect your IP Cameras (not included) using an Ethernet cable to either directly to the NVR (recommended) or Power over Ethernet (PoE) switch.

    REMINDER: It may take up to 1 minutes for cameras to start up and transmit video to your NVR.

  2. Connect your Router (not included) to the Ethernet port on your NVR or if using PoE, connect it to your PoE port.

  3. Connect a monitor (not included) to your NVR. You can either use an HDMI cable (included) or a VGA cable (not included).

    REMINDER: Your NVR is set to 1080p output by default. To optimize picture quality, set the NVRs video output to match the resolution of your monitor. Refer to your monitor user manual for details on optimal resolution. Click here for information on how to set your NVR video output resolution.

  4. Connect the wired mouse (included) to the USB port on your NVR.

  5. Connect the power cable (included) to the power port on your NVR.

  6. Switch the NVR on.

If your NVR system is beeping after startup, the Ethernet cable may not be connected to the system or the system may not be connected to the internet.

To stop the beeping:

  1. Connect an Ethernet cable from the system to your router.


  2. Right-click to open the Quick Menu and click Disable Beep.

IMPORTANT: This system features automatic firmware upgrades for enhanced functionality. It is required to upgrade your system to the latest firmware version. If a firmware version is available, a notification will appear asking you to upgrade the firmware. Click OK to upgrade. The system will download and install the firmware upgrade. Wait for the firmware update to complete. The system may restart during the upgrade process. Do not power off or disconnect the power cable during firmware installation.
