Here are the upgrade steps of below products, which are used for solving the Humanoid Tracking Problem. The upgraded NVR and PTZ will include humanoid tracking function, if the customer complains about that there is no humanoid tracking function, we suggest them refer to below upgrade steps.

You can follow up the guide below to upgrade the wireless NVR:
1) You needn't open the upgrade files, please directly download the upgrade files and save them to your U-disk.
(Please save the upgrade file rootfs-3536dv100 in the root directory, not save it under any other folders.)
Note: to perform this process, you will want to use a USB 2.0 drive ideally 16 GB or less in size, formatted in FAT32.
Some customers have reported issues when downloading this file using the "Microsoft Edge" browser.
If the file was downloaded using the Microsoft Edge browser, this will cause the file to be converted to a text file, which can't be read by the NVR. We recommend using a different browser for this process.
In case it helps, here is a link to a Youtube video demonstrating the process:
If you're unfamiliar with how to format a USB in FAT32, this video provides the steps:
2) The file's name must remain exactly as listed in the article for the NVR to recognize them as an update.
They should be rootfs-3536dv100, if the file name is changed to rootfs-3536dv100(1), the upgrade will be failed.
3) Before starting to upgrade, please unplug the power supply and mouse, then plug the U-disk and re-plug the power supply.
