Through trial and error I have worked out the process for Dropbox Cloud activation on the NVR8-8580 NVR. If you follow this process, it should work.

The software version for the NVR8-8580 I am using is 7.1.0-20180125

  • Go to Network menu > Email tab
  • Setup mail service (i.e. SMTP server, username and password)
  • Enter your DROPBOX EMAIL as the “Receiver 1”
  • Go to the Alarm menu > Motion tab
  • Tick “Send to Cloud” for all the channels that you would like backed up to dropbox
  • Go to the Device menu > Cloud tab
  • Cloud Storage should be ENABLED for each channel of interest
  • Driver name is the name of the folder that will be created in your Dropbox to store each respective channel. Name these as you wish. Eg. NVR/Frontdoor
  • Click Activate Cloud
  • An email will be sent to your Dropbox based email asking to activate using the provided link. Click on this link and login using your dropbox credentials. This completes the activation.
  • If all went well, images will start being backed up to dropbox.
Any questions on the NVR8-8580, please let me know. Would be happy to try and help.

What resolution do you get for your pictures. Some of mine are terrible and I cannot change them?
