If you lost the password of your Vivotek NVR, there’s an easy way to reset and recover it. Most of the NVRs manufactured by Vivotek come with a reset button on the machine. All you need to do is locate the reset button, hold it pressed and the NVR will reset. The reset will bring the NVR to factory defaults and erase all the other settings on the NVR (including the username and the password).
These NVR models manufactured by Vivitok come with a reset button (not all models are listed here, just a few models): NR8201, NR8301, ND8212W, ND8312, ND8321P, ND8322P, ND8422P, ND9322P, ND9322P-v2, ND9424P, ND9424P-v2, ND9441, ND9441P, ND9541, ND9541P.
How to reset Vivotek NVR
Step 1. The reset button on the Vivotek NVRs is located on the front or on the back of the NVR. Check your machine and locate the reset button. The pictures below show a few samples.
Step 2. Press the reset button with a paperclip or a thin object. Keep it pressed for 30 seconds and release it. The NVR will reboot and will come back with all the settings erased (including the password). Note: the reboot process may take 3-4 minutes.
