Digital Video Recorders (DVR's)

DVR's record and store footage from CCTV cameras onto their internal hard drives. A DVR will record footage constantly. Once the hard drive has reached it's capacity the DVR will then start to record over itself from the oldest point.

The amount of footage that can be stored depends on the amount of cameras and the size of the hard drive, though we can set up DVR's to hold more footage by:

• Reducing the recorded resolution.
• Reducing the quality of recording.
• Reducing the recorded frames per second.
• Setting up motion detection.

DVR's playback functions operate in much the same way as a DVD player. They do have the added benefit of time & date search. Whilst in playback mode a DVR will continue to record all cameras connected to it.

Some DVR's have CD or DVD writers others have a USB slot for a flash/pen drive and some have both. These writers are used to burn footage in the event of an incident.

DVR's can be networked over the internet using either a static or dynamic IP Address. Once set up the user would be able to access both live & recorded footage from any PC with an internet connection.

Accessing a DVR over the internet is secure and requires the user to enter their User Name and Password.

Benefits of using a DVR.
• Ease of use.
• Playback & record simultaneously.
• View on split screen, single channels or channel rotation.
• Flexibility with recording time vs recording quality.
• Record audio
• View from remote locations - Networking.
• Mobile phone viewing (subject to mobile, package and DVR).

If you have any questions regarding DVR's or if you would like to arrange a free no obligation site visit then please contact us.
