This 32 Channel DVR is an Enterprise Level video recorder that is a perfect choice for either customer with an old analog DVR or those looking to build a new system with 32 coax based security cameras. It is our newest generation of security camera recorders classified as Pentabrid DVR, i.e. a XVR which means it can record up to five different types of video signals. You can record the following signal types with this XVR:

  • HDCVI - you can choose from our selection of HDCVI cameras here up to 1080P resolution. HDCVI signals allow for PTZ controls to be sent over coax wire.
  • AHD - our 4 in 1 cameras allow output of this signal type, however AHD is not very popular in the USA.
  • TVI - our 4 in1 cameras allow output of TVI signals.
  • IP Cameras - you can select from any of our IP cameras here up to 5MP resolution. It supports up to 128Mbps of IP camera encoding bandwidth.
  • Analog Cameras - these are standard definition security cameras that you probably already have if you are upgrading to HD.

This 32 Camera video recorder supports any combination of the above five camera signals up to 32 channels. It allows channel type to be changed for each channel so you can have a heterogeneous mix of cameras, see here how it is done. You can switch channels between coax and IP input. For IP cameras you will need a PoE switch to power and send data/video to establish a network between the cameras and the DVR.

Most importantly, this 32 camera Tribrid DVR supports IP cameras on each channel. Don't be fooled by competitor Tribrid DVRs that support only up to 2 or 8 IP cameras on their Tribrid DVR.

You can view 16 cameras at one time using the video outputs on the back of the DVR (HDMI or VGA) or all 32 cameras on one screen using our monitoring software. In addition to 32 camera video inputs, there are 16 audio inputs just in-case you are using security cameras with microphones, or you have add-on security microphones. Adding a security camera with microphone is easy. This recorder support audio over the HDCVI signal, meaning you can use a HDCVI camera with built-in microphone to capture video + audio over the coax wire.

This is a 2U Full Size or high capacity DVR and is ideal for customers looking for a video recorder that can hold a lot of video storage space. It can hold up to eight internal hard drives for a total of 64TB storage space. Remote viewing, motion detection, motion activated alerts, and the ability to tie in to a security alarm system is standard. Don't be fooled by other sellers claiming their DVR is as robust as this one. This 32 channel security DVR is truly an enterprise level recorder and it offers so many functions that they are too many to mention on one page. We have summarized the most important ones below.

It comes with FREE technical support for the life of the product, and FREE iPhone, iPad, Android, and Windows/Mac Apps. You can watch our Apps in action here.

Customer Reviews

Easy remote viewing after some setup Review by Chuck Milton
I bought this to replace a Swann DVR that I bought at costco which I was unhappy with. The swann unit died on me within 6 months. I waited more than 8 months to leave this review for this DVR. I am using my swann cameras on this which I believe are AHD type security cameras on this 32 camera DVR. I like this unit because it allowed me to change some of my BNC cameras over to IP cameras. I did make the mistake of picking up some cheap Foscams and they didn't work. I replaced them with the 1080P cams these guys have. I rate their support A+. They gave me an easy guide on setting up remote viewing on my iPhone. While its emails based I am happy with their response times. (Posted on 4/14/19)
Get it while on sale Review by Matt
I had been eyeing this security video recorder for weeks. They just put it on sale for $999 in March 2019 and I went for it and I am happy with my purchase. Like the other reviewer said, their support is good. Just make sure you check to make sure your cameras are compatible as I had some Reolink cameras I wanted to use but I can't find any compatible DVRs from them except from Reolink. I didn't the reolink's interface so I went with this recorder after watching the DVR video guides. (Posted on 4/5/19)

Total 7 question(s)

Can the unit constantly backup or real time replicate the video to a network attached NAS located in the same building but at a different location?

Question by: Edgardo on: 2016-12-08

Yes you can do a Live FTP backup in real time to a NAS. It could be in the same location or a different. It depends on what is your network bandwidth. For backups over the internet, you would need a strong 300mbps Fios connection, or a fiber network uplink at both locations. You can read more here:

Answer by: Tech Support on: 2016-12-08

For the HDMI spot output, can you choose specific cameras to flip through full screen on that monitor or does it have to be a constant display of specified cameras in grid view?

Question by: Chris Garvin on: 2017-01-13

On this DVR you can select grid or full screen views for the spot out. In full screen view, it will cycle through the cameras you have selected.

Answer by: Tech Support on: 2017-01-13

Does this DVR interface with ONVIF protocol?

Question by: Jeff on: 2017-03-15

Yes it does offer compatibility with ONVIF cameras as long as the cameras offer proper implementation of ONVIF. You can also use the RTSP url from a camera to connect to this recorder.

Answer by: Tech Support on: 2017-03-15

Can I watch access the DVR remotely from the network without having internet? only intranet?

Question by: Mario B. on: 2018-03-13

If you don't have internet, you can watch from a computer within the local network, not from the internet, i.e. outside the local network.

Answer by: Tech Support on: 2018-03-14

Does the device support RAID 5?

Question by: Corey on: 2018-03-29

This 32 channel XVR recorder does not support RAID.

Answer by: Tech Support on: 2018-03-30

Is there a way to remotely watch the camera stream? (without the need of a proprietary app)

Question by: S on: 2018-06-10

You can use the free software or app that are available, use a web browser like chrome or internet explorer, or you fetch the RSTP stream from the DVR for each single channel of video.

Answer by: Tech Support on: 2018-06-12

Does this DVR require PC with installed CMS or it's self-sufficient and you can watch camera footage from iphone/ipad without the need of PC with installed CMS in the network?

Question by: Alexander on: 2019-10-15

All of our recorders have a built-in web server. You don't need a PC running to access them. You can learn more about how to use our recorders in our security camera systems page.

All of our security camera recorders have a built-in web server that allows the cameras to be watched from a mobile phone as shown here.
