0:01Â :Â Hi I’m Paul from Eversafe and today I’m going to demonstrate for you
0:04Â :Â how to use the Dahua DVR.
0:08Â :Â First of all you just grab your mouse, you right click on the mouse that brings up the
0:14Â :Â menu system. You can select camera one,
0:18Â :Â camera two,
0:21Â :Â camera four, or
0:24Â :Â as many cameras as you need or you can actually get different views.
0:28Â :Â Cameras one to four, cameras five to eight.
0:33Â :Â We don’t have any cameras on there but this gives you an idea of what you can do it and
0:37Â :Â then you just right-click
0:38Â :Â and then go back to normal screen – camera’s one to four on this system.
0:42Â :Â The most common thing that has to be done on a DVR is to search back through footage
0:46Â :Â so I just click on Search, it’s asking for username and password.
0:51Â :Â The factory password is
0:54Â :Â six eights so I just left click with your mouse
0:59Â :Â and brings up a virtual keyboard soÂ I just click
1:02Â :Â 888888′ and then ‘enter’ and ‘OK’
1:06Â :Â and that brings up the search
1:11Â :Â interface. We’ve only got one days recording here so you just select the day, and
1:15Â :Â you can go to the timeline down here and it goes from zero to 2400 hours
1:21Â :Â so here we can look at ten o’clock so we just click
1:25Â :Â ten o’clock and each line represents a camera
1:28Â :Â and that’s when we were setting up for a demonstration.
1:33Â :Â Now if you want to back up this footage to USB
1:38Â :Â for the police so or just to archive
1:41Â :Â I just got out to this icon here, it’s a file list, so you click on there
1:46Â :Â and it brings up your files.
1:50Â :Â Sometimes this can be all full if there’s been a lot of activity
1:54Â :Â and we actually want to
1:58Â :Â back up this file here at ten o’clock so we just left click on there,
2:02Â :Â see how there’s a tick there, and then we just got down to the
2:07Â :Â ‘save’ icon – the little floppy disk icon there –
2:11Â :Â so you just click in there, brings up the backup screen.
2:15Â :Â we need to put a USB stick in the DVR. Make sure the
2:20Â :Â USB stick is in the front of the DVR actually before you
2:24Â :Â start looking for your footage because otherwise
2:28Â :Â the DVR wont recognise the USB stick because it hasn’t come up there
2:32Â :Â so what we need to do go back out,
2:36Â :Â choose that file again,
2:39Â :Â click ‘save’ again and now it sees the USB stick.
2:43Â :Â Now what we do is click ‘start’ and as you can see
2:48Â :Â is going to back up. Because it’s in a hours worth of footage it’s going to take
2:52Â :Â a few minutes to back up.
