Luma NVRs

This section walks a user through the process of using a ClareVision Doorbell v2 with Luma Network Video Recorders (NVRs). 

Need to Know

General need to know information for using the CVD v2 with  Luma NVRs.

  • The Luma Utility app is a Windows only app.

    Clare Video Doorbell v2

    Note: The CVD – v2 is currently available in the SnapAV store.

    Follow the instructions below to use the CVD v2 with a Luma NVR.

    To use the CVD – v2 with Luma NVRs:

        1. Log in to the Luma NVR using a web browser. See Luma documentation for accessing a Luma NVR using a web browser.
        2. Click Settings (double cog icon) in the side-menu.
        3. Click Camera Management, and then click on the row of an unused camera channel - selecting the row.
        4. Click Modify in the top row of the cameras table.
        5. Configure the IP camera options dialog to match the below settings.

          Adding Method: Manual

          Protocol: LUMA

          Management Port: 8000

          User Name: clareadmin

          IP address: CVD’s IP address

          Note: We recommend using a DHCP reservation in the router to prevent a change in the CVD IP address. If the CVD obtains a new IP address, it breaks the network connection with the NVR.

          Password: Enter the desired password and confirm

          Note: If the CVD is configured on the same network as an existing ClareHome controller, the password is automatically set to Secure7519. If there is no ClareHome controller, the password is manually configured by the installer.

        6. Click OK to save.
          Note: Alarm notifications in the app do not have to be enabled for the NVR to get motion events.
