NVR DVR Password Reset Instructions

Finding that you've forgotten the password to login to your DVR or NVR can be frustrating. If you've attempted to log in with the wrong password more than three times you account will be locked for 45 minutes, not allowing you to enter another password. These are security devices. They have a locking feature to prevent unauthorized users from accessing your storage or settings.

Password Overview

The default password for the administrator account is admin. If you're opening the device up to the world to view it remotely you should change the password. These devices accept passwords that are no more than six alpha-numeric characters. If you enter a longer password your login will not match, and you will be eventually locked out. Be sure not to use any special characters.

Password Reset Request

If you have locked yourself out and do not have the password to log in you will need to reset the password. To request a password reset go to:
click the link at the bottom of the page for "Submit Support Question"

Then submit a request for a master password.
