Sensitivity is how sensitive the motion detection will be. The lower the number the less recording you will get. Recommended range is 40-80.

Threshold is how much motion needs to occur in order to trigger the recording. Adjust this only if you plan on recording larger objects (Cars/trucks) only and would like to filter out smaller objects (People/Animals)

Port Forwarding Guide

.

Step 1) Make sure you have an Ethernet cable connecting your DVR and your router. Step 2) Enable DHCP mode on your DVR in the Network tab and reboot the system. Step 3) Go back to the Network screen and make note of the IP address.

Step 4) Enter the IP address of the DVR in to your web browser to verify it's connected with Web Service.

.

Step 5) Log in to your router and find the Port Forwarding section, if you are unfamiliar with configuring your router, contact an IT professional.

.

Step 6) Forward ports 80/37777 using TCP protocol to the IP address of your DVR (Info and services for port forwarding can be found at www.portforward.com)

.

Step 7) Use www.canyouseeme.org to test the ports are open, you should see ‘Success'.

.

Step 8) Your public IP address may change so we recommend utilizing a Dynamic DNS service like Quick DDNS or NO-IP.

.

PLEASE NOTE: We recommend using Peer-To-Peer (P2P) instead of a port forwarded connection for security and reliability reasons. P2P is available on most CCTVSecurityPros models as of 1/1/16.
