ClareVision Doorbells: Working with Luma NVRs

Introduction

This document walks a user through the process of using ClareVision doorbells with Luma Network Video Recorders (NVRs). There are currently 2 versions of the Clare Video Doorbell (CVD), the CVD – v2 and the CVD – v3. Use the configuration instructions for the correct version doorbell.

 

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.

Clare Video Doorbell – v3

Note: The CVD – v3 will be available in the SnapAV store soon.
