Simplifying Home and Business Security

DIY solutions require input from one or more cameras, usually recording in standard definition to capture movement and activity.

Video is typically stored for 30 days, unless longer storage is required.

Entry-level systems often use Surveillance DVRs for monitoring homes or businesses.

Many DVR systems record 24x7, and leverage motion-sensing cameras to minimize recording time.

Security and Surveillance DVRs

Much like the DVRs that save episodes of your favorite TV shows, surveillance DVRs (SDVRs) record and save video from multiple camera streams in case that video should ever need to be reviewed.

Video HDD vs Desktop Hard Drive >

SDVRs are popular security solutions because they combine video recording and storage in a single device. This makes them easy to install and manage, and eliminates the need to buy external hard drives and cabling. Their flexible, hybrid design supports input from both analog and IP cameras, making them a straightforward option for security system upgrades or DIY projects.
