How can I reset the password on my H.264 CCTV DVR? This is a common question that the technical support team receives at CCTV Camera Pros.

Although it seems like a simple question, the answer is not so simple. The reason is because the majority of the security camera DVRs manufactured between 2007 and 2018 use H.264 video codec and label their DVR cases with the term “H.264 DVR”.

H.264 is not a brand or a model, although it appears to be on many DVR cases. It is a video compression standard that virtually every surveillance manufacturer uses. Even Apple uses it in their iPhones. There are hundreds of CCTV DVRs out there that are labeled H.264 DVR. Each of them has their own default master password and their own process on how-to reset it.

I wrote this article to help people track down the instructions on how-to reset the password on their DVR. Here are some steps that you can take.

1: Locate Your DVR Product Code / Model Number

Inspect your DVR’s case for a product sticker. DVR manufacturers typically place a silver product sticker on the back of their DVR cases. Some will have a DVR model on them.

For example, the above product label is placed on the back of our iDVR-PRO CCTV DVRs. You can see that the iDVR-PRO4A model is clearly displayed on it. Using this example, I would recommend searching Google for something like “iDVR-PRO4A password reset”. If no results are useful, then simply search for “iDVR-PRO4A” to try to locate the manufacturer or someone that supplies it. You can then call or email to see if they have instructions.

2: Locate Your DVR’s Brand

This is less likely to exist than a product sticker, but some security system suppliers put their brand on the DVR case. We do this.

For example, this is the front of our iDVR-PRO16H 16ch CCTV DVR. You can see that our iDVR-PRO brand is clearly displayed. Using this example, I would recommend searching on Google for “iDVR-PRO password reset instructions” or just “iDVR-PRO”.

3: Do You Have An Email Order Confirmation

If you originally purchased the DVR online, search through your email account to see if you can locate the original order confirmation email or any other email correspondence related to your DVR. If have an email, see if that company is still in business and reachable.

Still Having Trouble?

In an ideal world, security system suppliers would make it easy to identify the products that they supply and easy to find support online, however, most of our competitors do not do this (lucky for us). Here are the password reset instructions for our iDVR-PRO H.264 CCTV DVRs and this is how we provide online support and how-to guides for our DVRs. We also have a library of videos here.

As technology continues to improve and upgrades are made to both security cameras and DVRs, a question that we are often asked is Will my old CCTV cameras work with a new HD surveillance DVR?

The purpose of this article is to assist in determining if an existing CCTV camera will work with the new HD surveillance DVRs that are available.

In order to determine if your existing security cameras are compatible with a new DVR, the first step will be to determine if your camera(s) are standard analog CCTV cameras. To do this we are going to look at some of the images below to assist us.

First, take a look at the type of cable and connectors are attached to the camera in question. Standard analog CCTV cameras typically use a coaxial cable with a BNC connector on the end. In the image below, the BNC connectors are yellow. If your camera has this type of connector used for the video cable, it is a CCTV camera.

If your cameras are mounted too high to easily reach, you can also look at the back of your existing DVR or video multiplexer. Almost all Analog CCTV DVR’s on the market use BNC connectors for video. Please see the below picture of the back of a DVR. The red arrow is pointing at the BNC video inputs.

Last, you can also see if your existing cameras have a product sticker on them. Many CCTV cameras have a silver product label on the camera that displays the TVL rating of the camera and/or if the camera uses NTSC or PAL video standards. If your camera has a TVL rating or says PAL or NTSC, it is an analog CCTV camera. An example would be 700TVL. Please see image below as a reference

If you are able to determine that you have analog CCTV cameras and you are looking for a replacement DVR, I highly recommend that you consider an HD hybrid DVR, which work both analog CCTV cameras and the latest 1080p HD security cameras.

The big benefit to a hybrid DVR is that users can utilize their existing CCTV analog cameras and also add additional or replace some / all of their existing cameras with new high definition (HD) cameras.
