Camera or NVR configurations can be exported to PC or a storage device and saved as files for backup. You can also quickly restore configurations by importing backup configurations back to the camera or NVR.

Note: After you perform the Default operation, all settings are restored to factory defaults, except the following: login password of the system administrator, network settings, and system time.

Note: Make sure you import the correct configuration file for your camera. Otherwise, unexpected results may occur.

Note: The camera will restart when the configuration file is imported successfully.

Note: Only admin can perform these operations.

Note: The configuration file of an NVR can be imported to multiple NVRs of the same model if you want them to have the same settings. If the imported configuration file contains camera information, the related camera will be added to all the NVRs.

Note: Delete files with caution. Deleted files cannot be recovered.
