It is recommended to place the NVR in the centre of the monitoring area and to avoid obstacles between the cameras and NVR as much as possible.
Note: Camera connection to NVR is wireless: the NVR connection to the router is wired.
The supplied cameras are matched at the factory. Re-adding or adding an additional camera can be done in Video Management using either "auto add" (cameras will be detected automatically) or "match code".
Camera's antennas should be positioned parallel to the Wi-Fi signal transmission and not angled directly at the router.
The system is a standalone unit with an embedded Linux operating system in the NVR. To configure the operating system, a keyboard, mouse and monitor with HDMI or VGA input.
- Plug in the NVR box to a power source and turn it on.
- Plug mouse into the USB port on back of NVR box.
- Plug an HDMI or VGA connector into the back of the box and then into the monitor you want the camera footage to appear on (this must be a TV/monitor, not a laptop) (HDMI/VGA cables not included).
- Plug the IPC mains adapter into a power source, making sure you insert DC 12V end into the IPC making sure you screw the antenna on to the camera. Plug the ethernet into the back of the box and into the IPC. This will register the camera on your monitor screen. Once you see the camera working, this can be unplugged and input into another power source within the wifi range. The ethernet is no longer required for the camera that has just been setup.
- Repeat step four for each camera. Once all of these have been setup, they can be placed in different areas without an ethernet connection provided they are within range of your Wi-Fi network.
If you are experiencing any issues with this, you can view a video demonstrating a similar unit set up with the same operating system here.

With the PC and the NVR connected to the same Local Area Network (LAN),
1. Find the IP address and port number of the NVR (through System Setup > Network Setup).
2. Enter the IP address in the browser (e.g. http://192.1.17). If the default port number has changed from 80, enter the port number as well in the format (e.g. if the port number was changed to 100 e.g. http://22.214.171.124)
- Navigate to http://e-seenet.com in a browser.
- Input Device ID, username and password to log in.
The device ID is shown at the right bottom corner of the monitor. The status should show as "online". The default username is admin and the default password is empty.
1. Download the IP PRO app from the App Store, Play Store or by scanning the QR code below.
2. Right-click on your main monitor screen where the camera footage is being displayed and select ‘setup wizard’. Keep the username as admin, there is no need to enter a password. You can set this up manually later. Once clicking ‘OK’, 3 QR codes will be displayed on the screen.
3. Ensure that your NVR box is connected to the wifi router that your mobile phone is connected to. Do this by manually plugging the NVR into your router via the ethernet cable provided. The mobile app will not be able to display footage if you’re not using the same network on both devices.
4. In the IP Pro app, create an account and then click the ‘+’ symbol in the top right corner of the screen.
5. Select ‘Add’, then click ‘DVR/NVR’. In the Cloud ID field, select the square icon in the far right box. This will open your phone's camera.
6. Scan the Cloud ID QR code that you have up on your main monitor screen. This will link the devices and should take you back to the screen you were on but will have filled in the Cloud ID automatically for you.
7. Now, click complete in the top right-hand corner of the screen. Your device should now be connected. If you are experiencing technical issues, please ensure both the NVR box and your mobile device are connected to the same network.
Device ID is shown at the right bottom corner of the monitor. The status should show as "online". The default username is admin and the default password is empty.
Live playback is supported within the app. Due to network conditions and connection speed, playback over LAN will be more reliable and consistent than playback from mobile data.
Extending Wi-Fi Range
A wireless network is inherently susceptible to range limitations and interference from obstacles, etc. To improve the reliability and stability of a Wi-Fi connection, refer to the following setup tips and configuration options.
In the repeater setup page, first set up and connect any IPC to the NVR. This function increases the wireless transmission distance and extends the total range of wireless kit.
1. Right-click and select Video Management > Repeater.
2. Add repeater: as below, click the icon and a channel besides the one currently being copied from (channel 3 in this example).
3. As below, IPC1 is connected to the NVR through IPC2 and IPC3. IPC2 is connected to NVR through IPC3. IPC3 is connected to NVR directly.
4. Click Apply > Refresh to confirm the setup is successful.
