Web Viewer

When connecting to your DVR through a web browser, you will be required to log in to the DVR, then to install a plug-in before you may begin viewing video from your recording unit. 

This article will provide a flowchart for troubleshooting video display issues when using the web viewer to monitor your DVR.

Note:  When trying to connect with your DVR through the web viewer, please use Internet Explorer if you want to see video.  You may still connect with the DVR using a different browser, but video cannot display without the ActiveX plugin.

Note:  If your camera video does not display at the DVR, it is unlikely to display through a web browser.  If this is the case, you may be experiencing a camera connection issue and it is recommended to troubleshoot the video loss issue at the DVR.

Supported/Affected Devices

  • VMAX Series (960H)
  • VMAX A1 Series (2.1 MP)
  • VMAX A1 Plus Series (5 MP)

Troubleshooting

Use the following flowchart to troubleshoot video display issues when using the web viewer to monitor your DVR.
