Quick preparation of the DVR to work

The article describes how to quickly install and configure your surveillance system from the company Kroks, and quickly set up the DVR and the IP cameras with PoE.

Before starting work, we will define the network map. If possible, you should clarify the network configuration with your system administrator. Suppose the final configuration of a computer network including the installed video surveillance system will be:

Router 192.168.1.1

The range of fixed IP addresses, with the exception of the router, 192.168.1.100 - 192.168.1.109

For video surveillance, you must use fixed IP addresses.

Assign IP address 192.168.1.110 to the DVR

Four cameras will assign addresses in the range 192.168.1.111 — 192.168.1.114

We will connect all the devices according to this scheme, but without connecting to the external network, in order to avoid the conflict of IP addresses.

Upon initial startup, the DVR will launch a quick setup utility. Consider its work.
