You can have your IP cameras up and running in less than 5 minutes.

Connect the cables to the NVR

To have your IP cameras working in a Zosi NVR, the first thing you need to do is connect the UTP (network) cables that come in the Kit to the NVR PoE Ports. 

The following picture shows the PoE ports at the back of the NVR.

Once you've done that, you can just plug the power supply, a mouse, and a monitor to the NVR and use the IPC channel menu to search and add the IP cameras.

How to use the IPC channel to add cameras

The IPC channel menu comes up.

On the right side, there's an empty area where the IP cameras are going to show up as soon as you click the search button and wait for the NVR to look for them.

The NVR takes some seconds to look for the camera that is connected to its PoE ports. Just wait for this process to finish.
