What is a Security DVR?
Security DVR or Digital Video Recorder takes video from analog and digital cameras and converts them into digital format on a hard drive. They also have an effective alarm system.
How Many Hours Of Video Can be Stored on a Security DVR?
Ideally, our Security DVR can store video recordings for up to 30 to 90 days on motion detection mode. But here again, it depends on the actual space available on your hard disk and the number of cameras and the number of frames per second.
How Can I View the Live/Recorded Video?
You can view the live/recorded video locally or from a remote location through an internet enabled Security DVR. In fact, you can even view it through a mobile phone remotely. With the help of a basic DSL or cable and a broadband connection, you are ready for remote relay.
What is Video Capture Card?
A Video Capture Card captures signals from the camera and stores it on the hard drive. This graphic card is stored inside the DVR.
What is Motion Detection? How Does it Work?
Motion detection is the process of detection an object, especially humans. Infrared energy radiated by the object and amplified. In cameras, it works through a software installed in the DVR. When pixels in the image change, video is automatically recorded. Ideally, sensors are sensitive in the range of 8 to 12 micrometers, but you can set the sensitivity according to your needs.
Can Several Users View One Site Simultaneously?
YES! Multiple users can view the same site at the same time, but the bandwidth is also shared between them.
Can I record Audio? YES!
You can record only audio if you so desire, but analog cameras are not fitted with an inbuilt camera, hence you may have to buy a microphone separately.
What is Auto-Iris Lens?
Auto-Iris provides consistent video signals even when the lighting isn’t satisfactory.
Can the Camera be Zoomed? YES!
But you need a camera that’s equipped with a Pan Tilt or a PTZ camera to use this function.
What is the Operating System for the DVR?
While the PC based ones make use of Windows XP or Windows 7, the standone ones are Linux.
Is it Compatible Across Systems?
Our systems work across most PC based and electronic cash registers. Alternatively, you can contact us with the make and model of your system and we’ll let you know if our camera is compatible for your system.
What are the cables to be Used?
RG59 coaxial cables and a pair of 18 gauge wire or station Z should suffice.
