A Digital Video Recorder is a broad term for a device that records media footage or data on a digital format, like on a hard drive, like ones found in PC’s. A DVR looks like VCR’s, has all of the same and more features (recording, playback, fast forwarding, rewinding, and pausing) plus the ability to skip to any part without having to rewind or fast forward.
CCTV cameras produce recordings or still images, and come in a few different options. Analog, Digital, or IP/network cameras. In addition to the signal type, security cameras come in different shapes, like a bullet, pinhole, or our favorite, the dome camera. What’s most important is the lens, you won’t believe the quality once we show you ours!
Software & Apps
After your new security camera system installation is complete, we will network your DVR and mobile devices, so you can monitor your business or assets anywhere in the world live. By using your smartphone, you now have eyes and ears onsite 24/7. We offer specialty support and training for all of our new customers with this amazing technology!
Your system comes standard with one HD LCD monitor to be used for viewing and managing your system at the security system installation location. The monitor is the same as those you plug into the back of your PC via VGA or HDMI port. You can control the screen using the included mouse in your office on your installed DVR or NVR recorder.
We install your DVR system with a standard 500GB hard drive. This typically stores between 2 to 4 weeks of recordings, before it rewrites over the oldest recording once it runs out. If you desire longer recording storage times, we can easily double or triple the length of time by addition larger or additional hard drives, and even do backups too!
