In this tutorial, we will be going over the steps for how to add a Sibell device via NVMS 2.0. Make sure your recorder is set up for P2P or port forwarding already. If you have not done so, you can find those tutorials here (How to Activate P2P on a Sibell Recorder) or the video tutorial on our YouTube channel.
If you’re interested in purchasing any Sibell Products, security cameras, video recorders, and more, visit our online security camera store. If you need further technical or sales assistance, please contact Security Camera King.
Before we get started, let’s go over the pre-setup checklist to make sure you have everything you need.
- First, make sure the recorder is powered on and you can see your cameras on the local display.
- For P2P setups, you’re going to need the server port and the serial number of the unit. For the server port, you can use the recorder to navigate to the port submenu found under the network menu, under settings. Write down the server port from here.
- Next, you will need to access the NAT menu, which will also be found under network in settings.
- Either leave the recorder on the screen or simply write down the serial number beneath the QR code.
- Fort port forwarding setups, you will need your recorder’s local IP, the WAN, of your network, and the server port of the recorder. Your WAN IP can be found by visiting www.canyouseeme.org from any computer connected to the same network as the recorder.
- To get the local IP address of the recorder, you’ll need to log into the recorder and navigate to the TCP/IP menu, found under the network menu, under settings. Copy the IP address down, as well and then proceed to acquire the server port.
- For the server port, you can use the recorder and navigate to the port sub-menu under the network menu, under settings.
- Be sure to have the WAN IP, server port, and local IP address written down to use later.
- Additionally, you’ll need to download and install NVMS Version 2.0, found in Security Camera King Downloads under the Sibell downloads section.
How To Add A Device Via NVMS 2.0
The first thing you need to do is open up the NVMS 2.0. When the program loads, you will need to enter in a default username (such as admin) and password (such as 123456). You can change this information to something that’s personalized at a later time.
On the home page as the program starts, you’re going to be adding the recorder one of a couple ways depending on whether or not you’re using P2P or port forwarding. First, we’ll start with P2P.
Start by locking Add Edit of Delete Device under resource management.
On the next page, click the Add button. This is going to populate a new field and in this window you’ll click Manually Add.
From here, click into the IP address with zeros field you see to populate a dropdown menu.
Click the dropdown menu and change the icon option to Serial Number.
In the new blank field on the right, input the serial number of your recorder. Leave the protocol set to standard. You will be able to enter in the username and password for your recorder, changing it from admin if it is not the default and using the correct password.
When finished, click OK. It may take a few minutes, but shortly you should see the online status turned from offline to online, indicating the solid connection.
Now we’ll go over how to add your device if you use port forwarding.
Many networks will not allow a computer on the same network as the recorder to access that recorder using the WAN IP address. With the port forwarding setups, we’re going to be adding two different entire to Sibell and NVMS. To organize these entries, you first have to create something called Areas.
Under the resource management section, you’ll see an option called Area Settings. Go ahead and click that and you’ll see the default area present. You need to add two areas underneath the default area. To do this, simply click Add. Leave the parent area set to Default Area and name the first area Home. Then click OK.
Add another area and this time name the area Away. Same thing as before, make the parent area default area then. When done, click OK.
Now navigate back to the homepage. You now need to put in the entries for your port forwarding information. To do that, go to Add Edit or Delete under resource management. From this page, click the Add button.
Once you click the Add button, a new window will populate. Go ahead and click Manually Add.
Next, you’ll enter the local IP info for the recorder. Click the field and enter the local IP address. Leave the protocol set to standard device. Make sure to enter the proper port information. Your username is the username for the recorder. Change it if it’s not the default admin and enter the password for the recorder as well.
You will need to select an area next. For this instance, it’s local. You are going to set it to the Home area you created. When done, click OK.
While waiting for this device to come online, go ahead and add the Away area. Click Add again and then once again click Manually Add. Click the IP field again, this time entering the WAN IP. Again, leave the protocol set to standard. Make sure to change the port to the correct port, enter the proper username and password for the recorder.
This time you’ll set the area to the Away area. When done, click OK.
You should notice that the Home area is online and the Away area is offline. This is normal. Some networks simply will not let you reach out to the WAN IP from inside the same network. If you were to go to a different network, these entries would be switched.
Now that all the information is in, you can take a look at your Live View. You should see your camera is actually up and running. You should also notice a plus sign tab at the top of the screen. Simply click the plus sign tab to open a brand new blank live view.
The first window in the grid of four will automatically be selected and you can see which cameras are available by seeing which ones are online and see which cameras are blue. Double clicking any blue cameras will fill that first window.
