Hi, my name is martin and i have a nvr system with 4 cameras and a 8-channel nvr recorder.This system is working without problems and im verry happy about the quality and the 4 shipped rlc-410 and the recorder works great. But a have a questian about the firmware upgrades for the cameras ... i know ... i can upgrade the cameras with a new firmware over the nvr via a local attached usb-drive on all atteched cams and this works allready. My problem is, that all the cams are have the default settings after upgrade this. Is there any way to save the config for all the atteched cams within or via the nvr in any way?I can export the nvr-settings in a file on my local computer via the windows-client, the settings includes only the settings for the nvr himself. But after the firmware upgrading the cameras there all reseted and the defaults are present. The other thing is ... the cams are becomes an ip address in the 172.16.x.x subnet, which is are different about my local network addresses. I know that is it where is it... no problem.My questian is... can i save the config for the cameras in any way on the nvr or in another way to reconfigure the cams after a firmware upgrade?Very Thank youMartin
Hi Martin,I'm sure the moderators will correct me if I'm wrong but I reckon if you plug a laptop into the NVR, pickup a DHCP (if it serves one) or use a static in the 172.16 subnet you should be able to use the cameras inbuilt web server to access the device from a browser.. just http to it. From there you can enter config and export the file out to the local disk and import back in after a firmware upgrade.. That's the theory behind it anyway.. I don't have an NVR and use this method for upgrades.. The only thing i'm not sure about is whether this works as I described but worth a try .. Cheers
Hi Martin,When you upgrade the cameras on the NVR, please untick "Update Config File", then the cameras settings will be saved after the firmware upgrade. It is not necessary to tick "Update Config File" unless you need the settings restored.
Hi Bob and Wictod,Thank you. I will try this with one of the cams today. Can i re-upgrade the cam with the same current firmware again?I still have another question. In the NVR is an option to reboot the nvr every sunday at 02.00 AM. I have unchecked this, but i received emails from the nvr about video-loss on this time for all the 4 cams. I dont think the nvr is rebooting but the cams do this. How can i disable this?ThanxMartin
RE:Can i re-upgrade the cam with the same current firmware again? --No, not with the same firmware.For another question, you can go to Alarm >> Video Loss and uncheck Enable, then you won't be receiving notifications about Video Loss.
