The default password for this unit is 111111
If you have set a different password and cannot remember this you must contact the Night Owl technical service department directly for a factory reset. There is no other way of accessing the unit if the default password has been changed and you have forgotten it.
In the event that the default password is changed the contact details for Night Owl Technical support as follows;
Night Owl 75 West Street Walpole. MA 02081
Toll free Phone : 1-866-390-1303
Email: [email protected]
Hope this helps. Please remember to leave a vote for the solution. Many thanks.

If you are in the start up wizard, will need to exit out of it. To do this, reboot (simply unplug and then plug back in) the DVR once its fully up and running the Start up wizard will appear. Select Exit and from the right click anywhere on the screen and a log in box should appear. Follow these steps below.
1) log in with the master password- 380761
2)Go to main menu
3)select advanced on the far right
4)In the menu below select "Load Defaults"
A) in that mini window select SYSTEM and nothing else and then save
B)once done it should say, save parameters success
5)GO to the main menu again and then system this time
6)ON the left select USERS
A) highlight the admin account so that its blue
B) Click edit at the bottom
C) Set your new password, needs to be 8 characters and is case sensitive
D) Under the "enter current password box" leave blank

I forgot my admin password i got a H.264 dvr 4ch China made

Admin and Passwords come as default. If you changed it and forgot, try unplugging the DVR and restarting. You can also still open the settings and try to re- factory the DVR if the settings permit. Next, I have to assume that you got the Booklet or the email or URL addresses to download same.
There is in the hand book the default password as the User name:password and the Password #'s 1-6. Good luck.
