Still Have No Idea Which Cable Goes Where?

Step 1 – Understand what comes with the box

The first thing, comprehend the product itself as possible as you can. Many of you made an informed decision before you invest in a CCTV DVR Kit. If you follow the steps and utilize the tips that listed here, you’ll eventually find out – it’s not that hard to install a whole system.

#1 Tip:  Unbox and take out all contents in the package and figure out what each part is or if anything is not included based on the user manual.

#2 Tip:  Lay everything in the box on a flat surface. The initial visual presentation to a complex product kit would help you familiarize product contents prior to your product installation.

#3 Tip: Sort similar items next to each other for further familiarization and easy grab. For instance, this kit comes with four analog high definition cameras, each camera requires cables to connect to a power source as well as the DVR. Can placed cameras and cables together, and it proved to be more convenient once you start hooking up power and cables.

Now, you are ready to move on to the next step.

Step 2 – Connect your DVR to Power, USB Mouse & Monitor

After obtaining a better understanding of each part of the system, you are now officially moving on to step 2. Next we’re going to show you how to connect your DVR to power, USB mouse and monitor.

First, use the  power cable and connect one side to the DC-12V interface on the back of your DVR, the other straight to a power source. You’ll notice the signal light next to the Ethernet interface lit up right away!

Second, simply plug in the USB mouse to any of the USB interface to use it as a control tool for monitors. This Floureon AHD DVR has two USB 2.0 interface in the back and one in the front so it supports monitor control, USB backup as well as wireless network card in total three working simultaneously.

Third, depending on the choice of your monitor, you can use the VGA interface or the HDMI interface. The VGA connector is a three-row 15-pin DE-15 connector which is commonly found on many video cards, computer monitors, and high definition television sets. The HDMI interface, on the other hand, supports standard, enhanced, or high-definition video, plus multichannel digital audio on a single cable. 

Step 3 – Connect your Cameras to the DVR and Power Source

When you proceed to this step, you will find out all video input and output interface adopt the BNC interface and the coaxial cable use the BNC connector rather than the commonly-seen RCA connections. If you want to buy additional cameras, have to make sure it supports BNC or purchase a RCA-to-BNC adaptor.

If you look closely on the first picture, you’ll see each side of the coax cable has a clear indication of which side goes where. Follow the labels and connect.  Repeat the same process until four cameras are fully installed using the coax cable and power splitter cable.

Step 4 – Camera Testing

You can move on to the testing phase followed by mounting your camera to the wall or ceiling to complete your home video surveillance solution. Yet before that, let’s talk about some camera testing and additional tips.

First by tightening up your camera and adjust viewing angle if needed. If your cameras come adjusted, please move on to the next paragraph. I noticed that my cameras came in loose form and my package came with an Allen key to fine tune the camera angle. If your CCTV Camera System doesn’t come with it, I’m sure you can find one in your home tool box or just get it in a nearby hardware store. Or check your IKEA tools, they love that stuff.

I chose the kit with bullet cameras and so far everything looks up to their claim, that the casing and infrared LEDs are accurate to what the vendor describes. If you wish to test out your CCTV cameras before actual use, I suggest that you leave it connected for at least 24 hours. This way, you can see how the video images switch from color to night time monochrome hues. At night, the image quality might appear sharper than in the morning. Therefore, when you leave your house at night, you can turn off a couple of lights so the night function kicks in and ensure a better video quality at night.  


#1 – when you finish mounting your cameras to the ceiling or wall yet discovering signal transmission failures, you can use a CCTV testing monitor and detect individual camera for troubleshooting.

Step 5 – DVR Testing

VOILA! Congratulations, your CCTV DVR Kit is fully installed now! You can finish your testing by taking into account matters like: is the network setup program easy to navigate? How do I set up remote access? How to change setting of automatic motion detection? How to setup your email account for email alert? Your should be able to locate relevant information in your user manual thus I won’t get into the specific details.


DIY your own CCTV Camera System is not nearly as complex as some of articles stated online. You’ll feel so accomplished when you set up the whole system all by yourself in just a few minutes.

  4. Hi all my camera’s are working fine but I cannot get play back I wondered if there’s a instruction manual available as there wasn’t on in the box

  5. I have 3 Floureon AHD 1000 lines cameras and the 2 I have tried work through the DVR, but unlike all my other cameras of different make, will not work when connected directly to a monitor that I use for setting each camera. Do I need some form of interface to connect the ADH camera direct to a monitor? Apart from that issue, these new cameras are very very good, and the night image is almost like daylight with the Infra red LEDS.
