Connecting a VGA monitor
Siemens Building Technologies
Fire Safety & Security Products
A VGA connector is provided so that you can use a standard, multi-sync computer
monitor as your main monitor. Use the cable supplied with your monitor to connect
it to the DVR.
Please note the technical specification for the VGA output in Section 3: Technical data.
Pressing and holding the Display button on the front panel for 5 seconds or longer will switch the video
output between Video Out (BNC or SVHS Out) and VGA Out. During clip copy, you cannot switch the
video output between Video Out and VGA Out.
The DVR will not record video for about 3 seconds while switching the video output between Video
Out and VGA Out.
It is the user's responsibility to determine if local laws and regulations permit recording audio.
Audio In and Out connectors.
Your DVR can record audio from up to four sources. Connect the audio sources to
Audio In 1, Audio In 2, Audio In 3 and Audio In 4 as needed using RCA jacks.
Connect Audio Out to your amplifier.
The DVR does not have amplified audio output, so you will need a speaker with an amplifier. The DVR
does not have a pre-amplifier for audio input, so the audio input should be from an amplified source,
not directly from a microphone.
