**This product is designed for our models, it may or may not work on DVRs we did not manufacture. In order to work with your DVR/NVR/IP Cameras, they will need to be ONVIF compatible.
DVR stands for a Digital Video Recorder and it allows you to record the the live surveillance video that is being captured by your security cameras. We have organized each surveillance DVR model by the number of CCTV camera channels it can support at any one time. Security DVRs are manufactured with the number of channels in multiples of 4,8,16, and 32 channels.
When looking at a DVR you need to ask the following questions..
When working with DVR Surveillance, you may be required to choose a video recording format. Video format determine the quality of the surveillance video being recorded. Currently, H.264 compression is the best hardware compression on the market. In the old days, many surveillance companies and dealers were selling CCTV DVR cards that had MPEG-4 compression, but most of it was software compressed. Software compression is sub-quality and is not recommended for high definition surveillance video. We do not sell CCTV DVRs that run on software compression. We strongly advise staying away from software compression in a security camera recorder. Software compression comes as MJPEG or MPEG formats.
When considering a Surveillance DVR, remember to select the right compression, but also remember to calculate the right amount of hard-drive space needed to achieve the amount of data you need to consume. In surveillance, having more than 4 CCTV cameras means there will be a lot of data to record. How long you can record on a DVR depends upon a few variables:
* We do not recommend dropping below 30 frames per second, or your surveillance video will look choppy.
Hard drives are getting less expensive each day. We recommend upgrading the hard drive or adding a second one before limiting the video quality or frames per second.
All of our DVRs have a setting that will allow you to record only when motion is detected, this can save space as it won't record when nothing is happening. All of our DVRs have at least 2 hard drive slots, allowing at least total of 8TB (terabytes) in space. Our XL models can handle up to 16TB in space.
