New GUI- Add a Dahua Device


This article will show you three different methods to add a dahua device to our New GUI recorders. We will be adding a dahua camera with all three methods.


  • Dahua Recorder with New GUI
  • Dahua Camera

Step by Step Instructions

Method 1:

This first method is extremely simple if all the cameras are still set to default credentials and settings. We will do a device search on the network and add them with a click of a button

  • First go to Camera>Registration


  • Click on “Device Search”, it will scan the network and pick up any cameras on it


  • Check the box of the camera you are adding and click on “ADD” and you will see the camera populate on the bottom box


  • Give it a few seconds and click on refresh to see if it was added properly. As you can see the status light is now green


Method Two:

The second method is used if there’s an existing camera and it’s password was changed. You will use device search to locate the camera and then go to manual add to change the password it’s being added with

  • Do a Device Search to locate the camera. Check the camera and click on “Manual Add”


  • A popup window will come up and most of the information will be populated. You will just need to change the password, click on save when you’re done.


  • The camera will now be added


Method Three:

This last method is used when Device Search fails and cannot locate the camera on the network. You will need to type in the camera’s information manually.

  • Click on Manual Add


  • Input all the required information


  • After manually inputting the information click on “Save”


  • If the information was correct then the camera will be successfully added and have a green status light
