Training Video

The following training session was held on the 9th of December 2011 and gives an in depth overview of the DOSS DVRs including setting up remote surveillance.





New IMS200 Software: DVR Reboots every 10mins while using IMS200 software
The latest version of IMS200 is now available for download from the left. You do not have to download this version unless you are experiencing regular reboots of your DVR while the IMS200 software is connected.

I can’t see all the buttons/icons when I run IMS200 or I can’t find the ‘Save’ button!
It’s probable you have changed your DPI settings for your Windows desktop. If you have changed the scale of Windows’ text and icons, you have also changed your DPI settings. This causes the buttons to be moved so that you can’t see them. Please change your DPI scaling back to 100%. In Windows 7, check "Control Panel -> Display" if you do not have the option to adjust the size of text and other items, you may need to then click "Set custom text size (DPI)". Once you have finished what you have been doing in IMS200, you can put your settings back again.

    Compatibility mode icon

How do I convert/save my DVR recordings?
You can save/convert your recordings to AVI format only. To do so click the button shown in “Media Player” (supplied on the Software Disc with the DVR).
To save your recording to another format, you will require 3rd party software (for example: Freemake Video Converter) and follow their instructions to convert your saved AVI to your desired format.

Why is the DVR triggering my security alarm system?

The Doss RPDVR series are able to connect to your existing security alarm installation and can trigger an alarm if it thinks the unit is being tampered with. This includes abruptly cutting off the power to the DVR, or illegally stopping the recording process. As soon as power is restored, the DVR will continue to record.



It is highly recommended to keep your DVR firmware up to date; especially when using the IMSeye App. When you update IMSeye, make sure you are also running the latest firmware on your DVR.

Note: The new update has been applied to all our warehouse stocks. If you purchased the DOSS RPDVR series before the current Build Date, or you find your RPDVR has an older Build Date, you need to update it.

To check your Build Date

  1. Make sure the mouse is connected to the DVR
  2. Right click and go to the Main Menu
  3. Click on Maintain and then Version
  4. If your Build Date is older than the currently available firmware (e.g. 2012.08.11), then you should upgrade. If it is already the current Build Date, you can ignore this update.

To upgrade

Follow these instructions carefully and make sure you download the correct firmware that matches your DVR model number.

  • Download the correct firmware file that suits your exact DVR model (check the sticker located at the back of your DVR if you are not sure).
