One of the most important pieces to your surveillance system is your surveillance video recorder. Whether you have one, four or sixteen cameras you have to take what those cameras see and store that video for reference or possible evidence. Now you need to decide whether you want to record digitally to a DVR or record onto VHS tapes using a VCR.
What surveillance video recorder is right for you?
Digital Video Recorder (DVR) – Unlike VCRs, DVRs record video to a computer hard drive or other media such as a CD or DVD. This makes a DVR easy to maintain because there are no bulky tapes to change or the risk of losing video quality when recording over previous footage. Some of our DVRs can be operated and monitored remotely from anywhere in the world using the Internet. While the surveillance video data is stored on the DVR it can be protected from loss caused by operating errors, tampering and accidents. We have both Windows® based and embedded DVRs.
