This guide will show you how to modify or change the camera’s name on Dahua recorders (DVR or NVR). Having your cameras renamed is convenient when viewing the cameras remotely or when you playback the recordings. You need to make sure to identify each camera based on its placement or location.
The method shown here works for all Dahua NVRs or DVRs, also any other brands that resell Dahua OEM equipment. You’re good to go as long as you see the same bluish interface as below.
Rename cameras in Dahua
Step 1. Log in directly to your recorder by using your username and password.
Step 2. On the Main Menu, under the Settings section click on Camera.
Step 3. On the next window click on the Camera section.
Step 3. Here you can change the name (or title) of all the cameras hooked up to the Dahua recorder.
Note: If you’re using a non-Dahua IP camera but a Dahua NVR, you may need to rename the camera (directly) by accessing it on the web browser. However, most of the time you can rename the camera via the local recorder’s interface.
