Custom Camera Sequence Setup for iDVR-PRO HD Surveillance DVRs

iDVR-PRO Windows CMS Troubleshooting

By default, the iDVR-PRO video surveillance DVRs (A, M, and H series) will sequence through all of the cameras connected to the DVR. By setting up a custom sequence, you can choose which cameras you want to sequence through. For example, if your DVR has 16 cameras, but you only want to sequence through 8 of them, you can specify the 8 cameras you would like the DVR to sequence through when in sequence mode.

Please follow the instructions below to set up a custom sequence.

1. First, select Menu, followed by System Setup, Display, and finally, Sequence. Then click the Add button to create a new custom sequence. (Shown Below).

Security Camera System Quote

Did you know? CCTV Camera Pros can provide a complete surveillance system quote that includes any iDVR-PRO model with cameras, cables, connectors, power supplies, and monitors? We can even mix and match SD and HD security cameras because the latest iDVR-PROs are hybrid. They work with CCTV, AHD, and HD-TVI type cameras. As you have probably already seen on our website, we have 2, 4, 8, and 16 camera surveillance systems in pre-made packages. However, it is not possible for us to package up every combination and quantity of all the different camera models that we carry. So, we can also provide you with a custom quote with as many cameras as you need and a mix of any combination of camera model(s) based on your project requirements.
