This 4 Channel DVR is unique that it will allow a total of 6 channels of video/audio recording. It supports up to four HDCVI or Analog Cameras using its integrated BNC ports, and an additional two ip cameras over the network. It is an economical choice for users looking for a Tribrid DVR to record 4 cameras at up to 5MP with 4 audio inputs, with the option to add 2 IP cameras.

It does not sacrifice on any of the features or reliability that more expensive DVRs offer. You can even use PTZ cameras with this recorder. Simply connect your cameras and start recording in real time HD. You can find compatible HD cameras here, and choose from cameras depending on your requirements.

If you are unfamiliar with HDCVI cameras, they are a new type of security cameras that can send HD video over regular coax cable. They are great for use in upgrading existing systems, or in new systems where the fussy networking required for IP cameras is too difficult for you. If you are looking for a complete system be sure to check our 4 camera HD security systems page.

This 4 channel high definition DVR has a high speed processor with embedded Linux operating system that stays free of any viruses or Trojans. It comes with the same great user interface as all of our other DVRs, and uses H.264 encoding to record video at great quality while conserving hard drive space.

All of the DVRs we sell include tons of features, most important of which is video based motion activated recording that you can use to save hard drive space and record only when motion is detected by the intelligent software on this DVR. The motion feature can also notify you on your phone or tablet when activated, and you can also playback video from your phone or tablet.

Total 4 question(s)

Will this unit work well with 35AIR cameras? And if so what cords, etc would I need. ALSO, how long would 1TB drive record? Need to be able to watch a disc or tape after being gone, etc. ? Thanks.

Question by: steve on: 2017-07-20

This DVRCF04 does work with the 35AIR cameras. You can choose from the following cables that include an audio line.

50ft Siamese Cable with Audio

150ft Siamese Cable with Audio

Using 1TB, you can expect to record for 19 days at analog D1 resolution at 30fps with audio for 4 cameras. You can playback video using the DVRs interface as shown here

Answer by: Tech Support on: 2017-07-25

What software and apps does it require ?

Question by: Jerry Cook on: 2017-07-27

Please see our remote view security cameras page for videos and more information.

Answer by: Tech Support on: 2017-07-31

Is the DVRCF04 compatible with the 150' siamese (sku: A150) cable and the 1080P dome camera (sku: HD26WA) with microphone.

Question by: Ted on: 2017-09-26

Yes it most certainly is. It is meant for use with the HD security camera with mic, however you can use a 150ft premade HD siamese cable and the camera will send audio over the coax cable. Please try to order the DVR and the camera on the same order so we can have them preset to work for you.

Answer by: Tech Support on: 2017-09-26

Does this unit come with a hard drive installed? If so, what size?

Question by: Ben Smith on: 2018-12-12
