1. The IP camera must support the ONVIF protocol.

2. The IP camera’s resolution had better equal to or lower than the resolution DVR.

3. The camera should be connected to the router, by cable, or by wifi. Therefore, a wireless camera is also OK.

1. Please use a network cable to connect the IP camera to the router, and connect the camera to the power source by adapter.

2. Connect the DVR to the same router by network cable.
