Lorex home manual

Lorex home manual DEFAULT

For the last years, Lorex has been working on different technologies for their types of equipment, as we can see on the cameras and video recorders, new tools, and features are programmed on the devices to provide new experiences. Today, they have the Lorex home app, and I will give you in this article all the information you need about it.

That said, the importance of having a security system is to provide peace by securing your property, and one of the best ways to improve that sense of peace is by monitoring your cameras from a remote location.

As a complement for local monitoring of your cameras using a TV or monitor you can use your phone with a mobile app according to the model number of your video recorder, the way to take advantage of the phone apps is by connecting the system to the internet.

To connect the Lorex recording to the internet, you should have an ethernet cable running from the back of the recorder to a router. Having internet on your system will let you view remotely your cameras and check for future upgrades on the system.

The internet speed required to run the cameras on the phone is 2.5Mbps per camera if you don’t have enough upload speed the cameras won’t show up.

Advertising: Most of the new Lorex cameras and systems are 4K video. However, the quality on the phone will run as sub-stream, which means a lower resolution than on the main screen.

How Is The Lorex Home App?

The quality and performance of the Lorex app you have on your phone will depend on how your internet speed is, playback and live view speed will run well if your internet connection is stable.

Try not to use safe battery or airplane mode while using the app this may cause several issues when displaying the cameras.

As a final requirement for a successful remote connection, remember to keep your system always upgrade on the latest firmware version, without having system upgrade no connection will show up for the cameras on the app.

The Lorex Home is a phone app produced by Lorex under the management of Dahua technology. After Dahua purchases the Lorex company, we can see an improvement in mobile apps.

Lorex Cloud is one of the best examples where we can compare it with the old Flir Cloud produced by Flir technologies. The performance and video quality of the new apps are incredible.

If you want to compare features between the latest apps, you can use the Lorex Cloud app article as a reference.

Lorex Home is an app compatible with the newest Lorex devices you can see in the following picture.

Lorex Home App

This Lorex app will let you do specific things and configurations that you cannot on different apps. The Lorex Home request to create an account that provides unique access to the cameras different than the Lorex Cloud, where you can see your device just by downloading the app.

You can create the Lorex account from the Lorex website or the Lorex Home app you can use your email address and password then a verification code will show up on your email to validate the account information.

To create the account from the Lorex website, you must go to https://www.lorextechnology.com/profile/login select the option CREATE ACCOUNT and type in your information.

Lorex Home App

Creating the account from the Home app is easy too, tap on SIGN UP, select your country, type your information, and then open the activation code on your email to validate your account.

The Lorex account information is for Lorex Home app and the Lorex website, don’t use your Lorex account password to log in on your system it will not work.

Having a Lorex account to log in on the Home app will secure your camera’s privacy, not everyone who has the password of your recorder will access to your cameras.

The only way to remotely access your system from a different phone is by sharing your device with the main account to a separate Lorex Home account.

Keep reading the features guide to know how to share your device with different Lorex accounts.

Remember: The password for your device is different from the account password, you need to create the password for your device directly from the recorder, and it has to be eight or more characters long.

The new Lorex app is compatible with android, apple devices, and it is free to download.

Features

Lorex Home App

Smart Motion Detection.

The Smart Motion Detection feature allows you to get notifications for a person or vehicle events different from the standard motion detection feature the smart motion will specify which object is triggering the detection alert.

You must set up Smart motion separately from standard motion detection as both are different features, you can make the changes directly from the system or by using the Lorex Home app.

Using the system to set up the motion feature, you must open the main menu, click on ALARM, select motion, and proceed through the motion setup, then click on SMART MOTION DETECTION and enable the feature.

With the live view of Lorex home, you can only display the first eight cameras of your system.

The Siren feature is useful to inform anyone trying to cross the line. Activate it will the icon number 8 and try to use it in particular situations as it is loud and annoying.

Video quality is a feature you can modify by tapping on the icon number 13 you can select between an HD or SD quality where SD is a lower resolution. Remember that running your cameras on high quality will consume more internet speed, try to use high quality on wifi networks.

PTZ control will show up as the icon number 10, and it will work only for PTZ cameras, this is a remote control that allows you to move and zoom the camera. The delay and speed for the movements will depend on the internet speed you have, try to learn how to use the PTZ controls before you play with them.

Sometimes it happens that you are looking at your cameras, and something unusual happens, to save the events you must tap on the icon 5 for a snapshot or 7 for manual recording.

All the saved events will be store on the snapshots and manual recordings section that you can get by tapping on the account icon.

The saved snapshots and manual recording can be export to WhatsApp or other apps only on apple devices.

Excellent WiFi camera System

Tried all of the different WiFi camera system and I can say that Lorex is superior to and exceeds their competitors. Customer service is great. Had some defective cameras. Got a replacement right away. If you read the instructions and know your he WiFi limitations than you will not have any issues. I never did. Had to get a WiFi extender to make one camera work snd it works perfectly. What I love about the system is that if it has to reboot for a power outage or if for some reason the WiFi is offline, once the power is on, I do not have to do anything. The cameras automatically log back on. The App works flawlessly. Notifications and replays works as they should.
I also have a video door bell which I love. Works as advertised.
Plus I believe that the price is very competitive.

Hey, Dave Edrich, thanks for the awesome review! We're happy to hear we hit the mark for you, and we'll do our best to keep it up. Let us know if you need help with anything.

Issues with the application increase

I have had the Lorex system using six cameras for over a year. Within the last couple of months, problems have appeared where none previously existed. First , recorded events on some cameras wouldn’t play on my iPad. Then, the number of cameras with the same problem increased. Then, events posted on the application didn’t exist when I drilled down from the summary page. Several times, I would open the application to discover that it couldn’t find my system or cameras on my WiFi. After extensive efforts, each of these problems boiled down to the application as everything on my main system was working fine. And, each time, the problem was corrected by deleting then reloading the application on my iPad. Not sure what the developer is doing with the application and updates but they’re going in the wrong direction. This application used to run flawlessly.
Update:
After receiving a reply from the developer that I’m probably having a WiFi issue and should move my cameras closer, (chuckle-chuckle) I’ve researched the benefit of shorter camera wiring (POE) and have determined that this is probably not the correct solution. In all fairness they didn’t get my model info but I did explain my troubleshooting and solution path.
Loose one star…

Hey Bud Lite65, we are very sorry to hear about this experience and we would be happy to provide immediate assistance. When you have a moment, please contact our technical support team at: 1(888) 425 - 6739. We sincerely apologize again for this issue, and hope to hear from you soon. Thanks!

Annoying but worked when needed

We get many notifications throughout the day, and I am working on the settings to lessen the many non-movement ones. That said it did work when needed. We had a adored local grocery where both owners were stabbed over a customer not wearing a mask in the store. At the time I was on vacation. We heard from neighbors about the incident and immediately checked our front camera trying to see if we could see the suspect walking by. While looking on the app I noticed a notification for our parking area in the back. I checked and there he was, crossing our neighbors backyard through ours. I called the police immediately and they searched our backyard. The suspect was no longer there but they knew the direction he was heading. All while on vacation. It works - thank you!

Hey Jholt619234, Thank you so much for your review, we are so happy you are enjoying our app and system! Please let us know if there is any assistance we can provide in the future. Thank you again.

This is accomplished by connecting the cam eras to the same router as the NVR. For these installations, an external PoE switch (sold separately) or power adapter (sold sepa rately) must be used to provide power to each IP camera. You also must add the cameras on the NVR before they will show a picture on the monitor or be recorded by the NVR. Follow the steps below to connect the cameras to the NVR over the LAN. NOTE Compatible with Lorex HD IP cameras. For a list of compatible cameras, please visit lorex.com/compatibility. Step 1 of 2 — Option A: Connecting cameras to your local network using a PoE switch: 1. Connect an Ethernet cable from the LAN port on an external PoE switch (sold separately on lorex.com) to your router using a CAT5e or higher Ethernet cable. Connect the power cable to the PoE switch and to a power outlet or surge protector. NOTE Terminology may vary depending on the model of PoE switch you have. 2. Connect the IP cameras to the PoE switch using the Ethernet extension cables. The PoE switch will provide power and video transmission the same way as your NVR. #LX400113; r. 8.0/57001/57001; en-US 10 4 Basic System Setup Step 1 of 2 — Option B: Connecting cameras to your local network using power adapters: 1. Connect each camera to a compatible power adapter (check your camera documentation at lorex.com for compatible power adapters for your cameras). 2. Connect the camera to your router using a CAT5e or higher Ethernet cable. Step 2 of 2: Add the cameras to your NVR: 1. Right-click and select Device Search. 2. Click Device Search. The system searches the network for compatible cameras. NOTE It may take a few minutes after you power up IP cameras for them to appear in your search. 3. Check the camera(s) you would like to add. 4. Click Add. The Status indicator turns green to show the camera is successfully connected. NOTE You can also add a camera to a specific channel by hovering the mouse over an empty channel in split-screen view and clicking . Double-click the camera you would like to add, then right-click to exit. #LX400113; r. 8.0/57001/57001; en-US 11 5 Camera Installation The following chapter provides general setup instruction and installation tips for security cameras. NOTE This section covers connection of cameras to the recorder and general installation tips only. Please refer to the documentation that came with your camera or search for your camera model number at lorex.com for specific in stallation instructions. 5.1 Installation Tips General camera installation tips that apply to all camera models. Please review before selecting a permanent mounting location for your cameras. • Test the cameras before permanent installation. Plan where you will route the wiring for the camera and where you will aim the camera. • Point the camera where there is the least amount of obstructions (e.g., tree branches). • Mount the camera where the lens is away from direct and intense sunlight. • Plan your cable wiring so that it does not interfere with power lines or telephone lines. • Secure cabling so that it is not exposed or easily cut. • Mount the camera in an area that is visible, but out of reach. • Avoid pointing the camera at a glass window to see outside. This may result in a bright white ring in the night vision image, as the light from the night vision LEDs may reflect off the glass. • Adjust the camera angle so that it covers an area with high traffic. • In "high-risk" locations, have multiple cameras point in the same area. This provides camera redundancy if a vandal attempts to damage one of your cameras. • For outdoor rated cameras, installation in a sheltered location is recommended to ensure the camera lens remains clear of rainwater and other precipitation. 5.2 Installing Cameras 1. Mount the cameras to the desired mounting surface according to the instructions that came with the cameras (visit lorex.com for the most up-to-date documentation). Choose a firm mounting surface that can support the full weight of the camera. NOTE If you wish to mount cameras to drywall, it is recommended to use the included drywall anchors. #LX400113; r. 8.0/57001/57001; en-US 12 5 Camera Installation 2. Adjust the camera stand to ensure that the camera has a satisfactory view of the area you would like to monitor. Stand configuration depends on the mounting surface you have chos en (see below for suggested stand configurations). Wall Mount Ceiling Mount NOTE Counter / table top mounting is not recommended if you are planning to utilize Person & Vehicle detection due to limited accuracy. Please refer to 14.1 Ensuring Accurate Person & Vehicle Detection, page 45 for recommended camera angling to ensure accurate detection. 5.3 Connecting Camera Extension Cables It is recommended to connect your cameras directly to the NVR. This is because the NVR fea tures Power over Ethernet (PoE) ports that are used to transmit video and audio, as well as pro vide power to the camera without the need for a power adapter. You can also connect cameras to a network switch or router (see 4.8 Connecting Cameras to the Local Area Network (LAN), page 10 for details). If your switch does not support PoE, or you are connecting cameras to a router, you will require a power adapter for each camera (sold sepa rately). Refer to your camera’s documentation at lorex.com for the correct power adapter to use. 1. Connect the camera to the included Ethernet extension cable. 2. Connect the other end of the Ethernet extension cable to one of the PoE ports on the rear panel of the NVR. 5.4 Wired / Wireless Fusion™ As part of the Lorex Fusion™ collection, you can pair this NVR with additional Lorex Wi-Fi products such as, Wi-Fi cameras, doorbells, and floodlights.

If you enable, select the Quality from 1 (lowest) to 6 (highest). • Resolution: Select the resolution that you want to use to record the selected channel. Higher resolutions create a more detailed image, but take up more hard drive space to re cord and require more bandwidth to stream to connected computers or mobile devices. NOTE Available resolutions for the Main Stream and Sub Stream depend on the model of camera that is con nected to the system. • Frame Rate (FPS): Select the frame rate in Frames Per Second (FPS) that each stream will record at. A higher frame rate provides a smoother picture, but requires more storage and bandwidth. • Bit Rate Type: Select CBR (Constant Bit Rate) or VBR (Variable Bit Rate) to determine the bit rate type. If you select VBR, select the Quality from 1 (lowest) to 6 (highest). • Bit Rate (Kbps): Select the bit rate for each recording stream. A higher bit rate results in a better image, but increases the amount of hard drive space or bandwidth required. • More Settings: Click onMore Settings under Main Stream or Sub Stream to enable Audio Encode. Audio Encode is disabled by default. NOTE Recording settings include options for audio recording. For full details, see 20 Connecting Audio Devi ces, page 91. 6. Click Apply. 7.
