I cannot set up email alerts from my dvr. It tells me I cannot connect to server. I have followed the instructions but to no avail.


I assume you have hooked your DVR to the Internet ok?
If you have an email account on your PC, say in Outlook or Thunderbird then it will have SMTP settings. Use the same settings to set up email alerts on your DVR.

First Alert, 4ch, 2cam, DVR surveillance. In 'RECORD' page, what is 'Redundancy' click-on for, what is its purpose?


We had an older system at work, and redundancy on our system was in case you wanted to make two separate recordings. You may want to make a recording on the DVR, but you may also want to output a signal to a remote hard drive. That way, if someone tries to take the DVR disc, you have another copy

How can I delete data from the hard drive of 'first alert' camera surveillance DVR?


Surveillance DVRs write over the oldest data when the hard drive needs more space.

You do not need to manage that manually. It is all handled automatically by the operating system of the DVR.

Swan dvr wont record


It sounds like a problem that might be an easy fix. Since the system CCA board doesn't see the HDD. Can you view any previously recorded images? How are the connections to the drive? Bad IDE ribbon cable (yes do do fault), power to the HDD and how about the drive? Some of my DVRs require the manufacturer drive, not a simple off the shelf (i.e. Lanex or Verint).
Try that and reply back. :)

Samsung shr-1041k CCTV system with 4 cameras.


on most dvr 's the port is 80 for the web cam. you also need to set up the network settings and know the ip you are trying to hit and is it static or dynamic if dynamic it will change periodicly. for example if you set the network settings on the dvr to the rang of your local network it would be something like 192.168.1.10 so under your router you would open port 80 to ip 192.168.1.10. make sence. first thing i would do is make sure the network settings in the dvr are set to work within your network. unless you have an extra static ip you can put it right into the dvr. fi you need further help just ask.

Motion recording for Swann dvr4


Have you switched cameras to AUTO (A) on settings line. Is the sensitivity for motion turned on and set correctly =
1= very sensitive 9 = less sensitive.

Setting areas are shaded = no recording area
unshaded = recording area

Hope this helps - good luck.
