    Configuring NVR/CVR Abnormal Events

    How to enable and utilise the alarm functions of a Watchgurd/VIP recorder


    Navigate to Main Menu > Alarm. Then select HDD / NETWORK / USER or DEVICE to configure specific alarms.

    In the example above, we have selected HDD to view the Hard Drive Alarms then selected Show Message and Log. This will enable the recorder to display a visible message, NO HDD, and also log this event to the recorders internal Log.

    If you wish to disable any of the alarm events, simply click the enable button so that it is no longer highlighted, then click Apply > Save.

    You can view the other available events by clicking on Event Type drop down box.
