This security camera type can be used in CVBS, HDCVI, AHD, and TVI systems when properly configured. Their ability to accommodate multiple systems is a key reason why 4-in-1 security cameras are sought after and used so frequently. The 4-in-1 security cameras have a toggle switch which is used to set the video mode the camera should be in. The location of the toggle switch varies between different camera types.  Some cameras do not have a toggle switch and allow video switching using a XVR or UTC controller.  Through the video demonstrations in this guide you'll be able to discern which type of 4-in-1 camera toggle is on your security camera,  and the best way to change the video mode in order to have the best quality picture for your DVR.

These include animal cams at a zoo such as a PandaCam, or an EarthCam located in Time Square to show what's happening at your favorite vacation spot. Live streaming is also frequently used in streaming any live event such as a First Robotics Competition or a Diving Event. Even for commercial applications, a builder may want to showcase progress of their famous building project to the community or their investors. All of these scenarios require a camera to stream to a website where multiple users can watch live video.

Our DVRs and NVRs support local recording to an internal hard drive as most surveillance recorders do. In addition, with our security camera recorders you can record video and snapshots to a FTP server using the FTP protocol. This can be done to a local server or NAS or to a remote sever in the cloud. FTP video and snapshot storage is great for backup as a secondary method to safeguard against theft of the primary recording unit.

This allows a user to access recorded video from their security cameras, whether it be by accessing a DVR or NVR directly using a monitor or mouse, or accessing the DVR/NVR remotely over the internet. There are several practices that every security camera user should keep to ensure their security video recorder is functioning and recording properly.

How To Record Pictures and Snapshots on a Security Camera Security camera systems are commonly used to record video as a way to ensure homes, businesses, and properties are protected. Security footage can consume a lot of storage space, especially if you're recording high resolution security cameras such as 8MP 4K security cameras. Rather than storing large video files that take up lots of hard drive space, certain camera applications may only need to record video snapshots, which are still pictures from a live video stream.

Many cameras on the market offer settings to control brightness and contrast, WDR, and image flip, but very few offer the ability to control the day and night settings of the camera. All security cameras with infrared LEDs have a photosensor commonly found in the front of the camera that allows the camera to switch to black & white mode for night when there is darkness, and color mode for day where adequate light is sensed by the photo sensor. For most surveillance cameras with night vision this process is automatic and cannot be controlled.

How To View Security Cameras from an iPhone or Android Once you have setup your security camera system by connecting the cameras to the DVR or NVR, and you have video displaying from each camera on a monitor, the next step is to setup remote viewing for your security cameras. All of our security camera recorders come with a built-in web server that is always functional when the recorder is powered up, and allows viewing over the local area network (LAN) or over the internet. This security camera remote viewing guide will show you how to connect to your surveillance system using an iOS or Android device.

This allows a user to connect an IP camera to a NVR using only a single network cable.

Some of our NVR models, however, are designed without built-in PoE ports, or have a lesser number of PoE ports than total channels supported. For example, we have 16 Camera NVRs that offer eight built-in PoE ports. To utilize the remaining eight channels, you need to fetch the eight video streams over the network. This is also the case for Tribrid DVRs and XVRs that don't have any built-in PoE ports but still have the ability to stream and record IP cameras. This guide provides the steps necessary to change the IP address of IP cameras that are deployed on a network using a PoE switch external to the NVR.
