Digital Video Recorders, otherwise known as DVR, are the devices that connect all the CCTV cameras within a system together and record footage for you to refer back to. Simply put, it’s essentially a computer that saves security video images to a hard drive. The bigger the onboard hard drive, the longer the recorded history. With 1TB as a minimum, you can be sure to have at least 7 days recordings available at all times.
The number of channels in digital video recorders shows how many cameras can be connected—for example, a 4 channel DVR can connect 4 cameras. For this reason, when you choose a DVR, it’s advisable to think about how many cameras you may need in the future. The frames per second (fps) relates to how many pictures the DVR will record in a second. Real-time recording is about 30 fps on each camera. Technology has finally reached the point where real-time recording is affordable, and we recommend business owners choose this option if they are monitoring cash handling or something similar.
All of our DVRs are high-quality and high performing with features designed for easy operation, superior image quality, and maximum storage.
