PC Based DVRs are versatile machines that give users more control and manipulation over their security cameras. One of the best things are bout PC based DVRs is the ability for them to grow as your security needs change. Initially when trying to setup a CCTV system, you need to plan out how you want to grow your system. Naturally it takes sometime to figure out what areas of your surveillance system may change. But unlike standalone DVRs you cannot expand them to add more security cameras. Some standalone DVRs have very limited graphical user inter-phase options too.

About PC Based DVRs
There are many key differences between standalone units and PC-based security digital video recorders. We'vie talked about standalone DVRs many times in this site. However, the main difference is the platform that the two machines run on. Standalone DVRs offer stability and ease of putting together a CCTV surveillance setup. They are plug and play solutions, and incorporate our own technology. PC-based DVRs offer a more complex and unique approach to CCTV. First, the main reason to having a PC-based DVR is the solely for the amount of security cameras needed. Standalone DVRs usually go up to about 16 channels, then after that you need the support that the PC-market has in expansion slots, memory, and some processing power. The PC has many great features. First, it is a PC! Secondly, many end users have more experience using Windows based platforms and are stuck on Windows. Third, you can really beef up in hard drive capacity, especially with our 4U rack-mount server cases. We can do up to three Tera-bytes for a 24 Channel and above system.
