How to set a password on my new Camius DVR, NVR recorder?

Turn on the DVR / NVR recorder using the On/Off switch.

The DVR doesn’t come with a default password, you need to set one, and there are two ways.

Option 1 – Connect your DVR or NVR to a monitor using an HDMI or VGA output for local access.
