NVRs have never been this simple


Technical skills no longer necessary.


“That was the easiest setup for IP cameras that I have ever done.”

- Rob, Tyco International, Ohio


NVRs are like DVRs, except they record in HD. You record IP Cameras with a NVR.

Whereas in a traditional DVR, the video files are encoded (changed from video feeds to files) in the DVR; with NVRs, the video is encoded and processed in the IP Camera and then sent to the NVR to be saved, viewed, and stored. NVRs do not have video capture cards but usually have sophisticated (or multiple) Ethernet ports.

Often NVRs are mistakenly called DVRs, but they are different.

NVRs work with IP (Network) Cameras; rather than BNC based (Analog, AHD, CVI, TVI, and SDI) security cameras.

Our 4, 8, 16, 32, and 64 Channel NVRs can record up to 4K (8 million pixels) at 30 FPS on Every Channel

One of more common issues with IP camera systems is low powered NVRs that can not even handle 1080p at 30 FPS (Frames Per Second) on every channel. Some lower quality NVRs are able to do a certain amount of channels in 1080p, maybe a few more if you use 720p, and then the rest need to be at D1 resolution. A common example is a 16 channel NVR that can do 4 1080p channels, 8 at 720P, or 16 at D1.

You’ll often see NVRs advertised as doing "Up to 1080P" or "Up to 4K" - this does not mean that they can do all their channels at 1080P or 4K.

This "up to" language is used because the seller is trying to sell an NVRs with low overall bitrate (the measurement of video processing power for the chipset). The average 1080p camera (at H.264 encoding, which is most common) will use about 5Mbps for 30FPS video, but many NVRs on competitor's websites only allow about 2Mbps per camera.

Unlike the rest of the industry our NVRs are built with the latest processors - in fact, Our 4, 8, 16, 32, and 64 Channel NVRs can record up to 4K at 30 FPS on every channel. We also use the more advance H.265 encoding which cuts bandwidth requirements by half. On average, our NVRs have 10 Mbps per camera in processing power! For example, our Admiral 8 Channel 4K NVR - ADM8P8 is rated at a total of 80Mb (10Mbps per camera).

SCW Secure: Our NVRs create an Isolated Network within a Network

camera hacks media camera hack screen

In 2017, there were a bunch of very high profile hacks where outside actors like foreign governments or professional criminal enterprises used the processors inside millions of both low cost cameras and some big name cameras to conduct cyberattacks on critical USA infrastructure like power plants and internet service providers.

The cameras plugged into the Admiral line NVR's POE ports directly or plugged into the Imperial Line NVRs Lan2 Network directly are not visible or accessible on your computer network. They run on an isolated network similar to an air gap. The only way to access these cameras is to plug a computer into those POE ports or hack into the NVR. There's a physical barrier from the cameras to the main network. In addition, there's also a subnetwork running on the NVRs, which means that even if you do plug a computer into the NVR's physically separate, isolated network, you would also need to know their subnet mask.

This has several advantages:

1. Faster Networks. Unlike traditional NVRs, when plugged into NVR' isolated network, the camera's video feeds do not slow down your main computer network.

2. Isolated Cameras. Since they are on both a physically separated network and a subnet, your cameras are not visible on your computer network or to outsiders. You can connect to the NVR remotely and log in and the use the NVR as a bridge to watch the cameras, but neither you nor a hacker cannot log into the cameras themselves, without either logging into the NVR or being physically present to plug into the NVR and possessing knowledge about your NVR's specific camera subnet mask. (You can customize this camera's subnet, if you want). 99% of all security camera IOT hacks are through the cameras - not the NVR.

3. Less maintenance. Our new 2018 line has 1 click firmware updates straight from the NVR/Camera: meaning: you don't even have to search for, find, or download the footage on a computer. You just click a button when using the device and update the firmware automatically. So, the update process is not difficult to begin with. In addition, you don't have to worry about updating the cameras for cyber security reasons, since the NVR is the only device that can be accessed remotely. It is much easier to keep one device up to date than dozens or hundreds.

Our devices didn't seem to be affected by any hacks in 2017, that being said, it is always best to follow our best practices for preventing IOT hacks.
