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

SCW Secure Subnet: An Isolated Network within a Network

camera hacks

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. The only way to access these cameras is to plug a computer into those POE ports or Lan2 ports. 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 the camera's video feeds do not slow down your main computer network when plugged into NVR' isolated 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.
