How to Change Camera Channel Type on a Security DVR DVR recorders these days support traditional analog CCTV cameras, new HD security cameras over coax called HDCVI cameras, and network based IP cameras. Security DVRs can vary in the variety of signal types they support, and can be called Tribrid DVRs or XVRs. These recorders sense camera signal automatically between HDCVI and analog security cameras without the need for user intervention. However, to add IP cameras requires changing the channel type to IP, configuring the camera on the network, and then adding the camera to the DVR.

You’ve had stock stolen at your store, or someone hit down the mailbox. Regardless of the reason, you’re looking for one thing which is safety. Even so, purchasing a security system involves understanding highly technical terms that are difficult to interpret without any prior knowledge of the security camera industry. Terms like RG59U, hd-over-coax, ip cameras, and frames per second (fps) are confusing. Acronyms such as IP, PTZ and HDCVI seem foreign. Suddenly, your safety becomes an overwhelming and time consuming process filled with jargon. Let's break it down. In this guide we will provide you the basic knowledge needed to know which security camera you should buy.

PoE connectivity simplifies cabling needed to connect a device by allowing power and data delivery over a single network cable such as CAT5e or CAT6. It makes it easy to connect devices such as IP security cameras, or office phones; a separate power supply or electrical outlet for each device is not needed.

It allows a security camera with a built-in microphone or audio input to trigger recording when sound is detected. You no longer have to rely on video-based motion detection to try and capture audio of an event and missing out on everything that was said. With audio detection you can even capture video/audio when persons are conversing outside the camera's field of view, but near enough to activate audio detection. You can finely adjust the sensitivity and threshold settings to decrease your storage needs. In this guide we show you how to setup and use audio detection with surveillance cameras purchased from CCTV Camera World.

Technology is not quite there where we can have the Hollywood effect of capturing a plate super far away with amazing clarity. It takes a good amount of knowledge for setting up a surveillance camera to fully capture a license plate. This guide will provide some of the much needed information necessary to accomplish license plate capture.

This process can be difficult without any knowledge of computer networking or setting up a standalone IP camera. In this article we explain the technical details of taking a camera from the back of your NVR and connecting to it with either a direct connection or through your network.

As discussed in this guide, our IP surveillance cameras with an available microSD slot allow for snapshot capture and storage on the internal microSD memory card. Storage to a microSD on the camera is a convenient option when recording on one camera, but for projects requiring snapshots capture from multiple cameras and easy review from a central station, the use of an NVR along with IP cameras is a more practical choice.

These two video outputs display the same exact screen, meaning what you see on your VGA monitor will be the same as the HDMI monitor. They will not allow you to have your cameras split between two screens. For customers looking to have their security camera system displayed in a split screen view between two monitors, we suggest the purchase of our recorders with Dual HDMI outputs.
