Introducing Security Cameras Inc.'s groundbreaking 256-channel NVR. This NVR pushes the boundaries of surveillance with up to 8K video output to a TV and supports an immense storage capacity with 16 SATA ports for drives up to 18TB each. In a time when the protection of data and the reliability of equipment are paramount, our NVR meets the challenge with its NDAA compliance. This certification positions it as the prime choice for military and federal installations, as well as institutions that receive federal grants. This NVR is designed to integrate seamlessly with our NDAA-compliant cameras using PoE switches within a local network.

But this NVR isn't just about checking compliance boxes. When you choose this recorder, you're enhancing your security with a suite of advanced features. Secure peace of mind with an investment that truly counts.

Remote View Security Camera System

Remote Viewing

Whether you own an iPhone or an Android, you can use the SCI View App that works with either to watch the system remotely. Keep an eye on your premises, no matter where you are in the world, as long as the system is connected to a hardwired broadband internet connection.
PC and Mac Software

PC Software and Web Browser Access

Not a fan of viewing cameras on a phone? No worries. The available Windows and Mac software makes it easy to monitor multiple systems from the Internet. Using the IP address that your router assigned to the recorder within your local network, web browser access is easily accessible. You can use a Windows, Mac, or Linux computer to access the recorder using a web browser.
AI Enabled Security Cameras

Advanced Detection and Analytics

When paired with compatible Security Cameras Inc cameras, this NVR really comes alive. Depending on the camera's capabilities for AI Video Analytics and intelligent event detection such as Pedestrian and Vehicle Smart Motion, Face Detection, Perimeter and Line Crossing Detection, Stationary or Missing Object Detection, and Cross Counting, make sure you capture what's most important. Analytics provide valuable insights for organizations and businesses.
Sound Detection

Sound Detection

Go beyond visuals. With advanced sound detection capabilities, not only can this NVR pick up on normal sounds but also rare, crucial noises like gunshots, a baby crying, or a dog barking to complement AI video detection for event notification. It's like having an extra pair of ever-vigilant ears.
Internet Optional

Internet Not Required

If you're wondering what a standalone NVR is, it's simple. Unlike cloud-based security systems that require an active internet connection for setup, our standalone NVRs operate without the internet. While it does use Ethernet or Network Cabling to power and connect cameras, an internet connection is only needed if you want to view your camera feeds remotely from another location using the app or PC software. This means that setting up your PoE camera system is a breeze, even without an internet connection.
