If you are in the market to upgrade your existing analog security camera system or to purchase a new system, then this DVR is definitely a good pick for a 8 camera system. It is the latest in HD CCTV that utilizes the highly acclaimed HDCVI technology that allows megapixel video to be transmitted over coaxial cable. HDCVI cameras and DVRs are the answer for customers looking for HD security cameras on a budget. Not only is the cost per DVR and camera lower than other HD CCTV technologies, but you can also use existing RG59 coax cabling to run the video signal. As compared to IP cameras which are more expensive and require wiring to be redone, DVRs such as this 8 Channel Security DVR are an attractive choice.

This 8 Camera 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. It supports up to eight 1MP or 1.3 Megapixel (MP) HDCVI Cameras and records at 720P resolution, which is equivalent to DVD.

As of January 2016, this model has the latest Tribrid DVR functionality, meaning it also supports analog security cameras, and 1080P HDCVI cameras that allow video recording comparable to blu-ray quality. Compared to traditional analog CCTV cameras, even those at 700TVL, the picture size you record is about 80% larger. That means you get more digital zooming ability on recorded video compared to analog. The video is recorded in Real Time 30 frames per second (fps) per camera at 720P resolution, and 15fps at 1080P. You can even use it with our Long Range Night Vision HDCVI cameras to capture license plates of vehicles moving up to 20 mph.

This 8 camera DVR recorder also offers control of Pan Tilt Zoom cameras. When using our HDCVI PTZ cameras connecting a PTZ is very easy. Simply provide power to the camera using its power supply, and run one coax cable from the camera to the DVR. That one coax cable (RG59U or better) will send video and data commands from the DVR to the camera, making PTZ setup plug & play.

All of the DVRs we stock come with motion activated recording, which you can use to conserve hard drive space and record only when motion is detected by the intelligent software on this DVR. The motion activated feature can also alert you on your mobile device when activated, and you can also playback video from your phone or tablet. It supports all the popular smart phones and tablets, you can find a full list of supported devices in the features list below.

Back-up of recorded footage is a breeze. Simply connect a USB flash drive to the front USB port, and with a few clicks of the mouse on the DVR interface, you can select cameras and date/time frames which you would like to download. You can even download video over the internet using your Windows PC and the included free PC CMS software that lets you manage multiple DVRs and cameras.

Support Guarantee
If you need help, with every purchase you get free technical support for the product purchased. CCTV Camera World also offers free mobile apps and viewing software so you can view your cameras connected to your DVR over the internet through your smartphone (iPhone, Android, or Windows Phone), tablet (Android or iPad), or PC/Mac computer.

How can I determine whether or not I need a hard drive for my dvr and, if so, what size? Thanks.

Question by: Jim on: 2017-07-05

If you would like to record footage from your security cameras on a DVR recorder, you will need a hard drive inside. However, not every customer is looking for recording when using a DVR, that is why we sell them sans storage with option to add DVR hard drives. To calculate how much storage is needed, you can download and use this disk calculator for Windows.

Will this record to an internal hard drive, and stream to an FTP site simultaneously?

Question by: Bill Mauz on: 2017-08-04

Yes you can record to an internal hard drive, and do live ftp video backups. Please see our article about how to upload video via ftp using your security recorder.

Can this dvr unit ftp the camera footage out?
we have a vpn, using modern gear so we just need to be able to put a dvr on say and ftp camera footage to (or could this also be set to use a nas behind it to add longer record time at higher quality? ) THanks!

Question by: Jason on: 2017-08-04

Yes you can record to an internal hard drive, and do live ftp video backups. Please see our article about how to upload video via ftp using your security recorder. The DVR does not have the capability for iscsi where you can write and retrieve footage. Once you write to a ftp server, you are going to need to use the PC video player to view video. By using the DVR's internal hard drive only can you take advantage of its cataloging file structure to fetch video later using an intuitive GUI interface. If you need more storage space, then we suggest using one of the 16 channel DVRs that offer 4 hdd or 8 hdd sata slots:
