Is the fan noise on my DVR NVR recorder normal?

Q- Is the fan noise on my recorder normal?

A- Digital or network Vide Recorder's fan is comparable to one in a mini PC, and the sound coming out of the vent that you may hear is a sign of a DVR that's working well.

The working fan indicates that the trapped heat is being dissipated, and the DVR can record 24/7 on the hard drive, and without this cooling mechanism, the DVR and hard drive's life span will be shortened.

How to add IP Camera to Camius DVR (Advanced Security XVR)

Camius Trivault DVR recorders are designed to support analog security cameras via coaxial wiring and IP cameras over the Network. To add an IP camera to Camius DVR, you'd need to add cameras to your local Network. Then, a regular network or PoE switch to the LAN port of the Camius DVR. Based on the example of a Camius 16-channel DVR, the connecting diagram illustrates this process. This system allows users to quickly and seamlessly integrate analog and IP cameras, providing greater flexibility in security camera selection.

If you are not using a PoE (power-over-ethernet) switch or a PoE injector, you can power the IP camera by connecting a UL-listed 12VDC-2AMP power supply to the DC plug on the camera and an ethernet cable between the IP camera and the router or switch on your local network.

How to troubleshoot if my DVR is not powering on?

If you're having trouble with your DVR not powering on, here are some recommended troubleshooting steps:

Step 1 – Check the LEDs on the front panel, a steady green LED (PWR) means your DVR is powered on normally, and a blinking red LED (HDD) means ongoing recording on the hard drive.

.

Step 2 – Check the sounds coming out of your recorder. A faint fan sound and a faint hard drive sound are normal, and a click sound when you plug in the DC connector and turn on the switch is typical.

Step 3 – If you have the green LED on but no output on the monitor, follow these steps:

 Replace your monitor/TV with another (newer preferred) monitor, and change the HDMI cable.
 Remove the hard drive (while the DVR is powered off)
 Disconnect all wires except the power, HDMI, and mouse, and then power-cycle the recorder.
 Once your recorder starts normally, plug your cameras back in.
 If one of the camera cables resulted in powering down the recorder, unplug it and check the power supply on the camera in question.

Step 4 – Check the power outlet and the power supply unit of the DVR. If the power supply doesn't have any LED indicator or the LED light is very faint and not bright green, and there is no fan sound coming from the DVR, the power supply may need replacement. If your DVR has running hardware warranty, please contact us. If the DVR is covered with warranty, you can order a new power supply on Camius site.
