Yeah, I've been there. I have a Hikvision DS-7604NI-E1/4P NVR and know that the constant beeping is very annoying; it can drive you crazy, right ? 🙂
In this article, I show you how to disable the beeping, but it's also important to understand what is causing them; otherwise, you just save your sanity but still have a recorder with some problem.

Why the NVR/DVR beeps
Your NVR/DVR usually beeps when something is not good.
It's just an alarm to let you know that you have to fix the problem.
When you power the recorder for the first time, it looks for the hard drive, and if it's not initialized, the device bothers you with the irritating sound 🙂
