Here are the steps:
1. Plug the DVR into the router with a network cable.
2. Find the DVR's IP address. There are two ways to find the IP address:
1) Find the IP address on the TV/monitor. Please go to Menu--Network--General.
2) Find the IP address on a computer.
Please download and install the software SADPTool from this link:
For Windows computers: http://support.annke.com/document/Computer%20Software/SADPToolV220.127.116.11.rar
For Mac computers: http://support.annke.com/document/HK/general/sadptool.pkg_.zip
Please connect your computer to the same network/router of the DVR, then run this software. It will detect the DVR's IP address automatically.
3. Get a computer that is connected to the same router as the DVR connected to. Then access NVR with its IP on the browser. The user name is admin and the password is your NVR's password.
3.1. We suggest using the IE browser instead of other browsers because we only have the web plug-in for the IE web browser now.
3.2. If you can not see the image of the cameras, the image may be encrypted.
3.2 Please go to the system to disable the encryption. Please go to Menu--Network--ANNKE Vision.
