CCTV Recorders

Digital Video Recorders are the most important part of any video surveillance system or home CCTV system. Buying a good quality DVR gives you far more control over your cameras and recordings, and helps ensure you get the footage which could be the difference between catching a criminal, or letting them get away. If home security is the main driving force then we suggest mounting the cameras around the corner of the property and placing the DVR in the loft. This means the recorder is securely kept away form danger, even if the property is broken into. Normally 4 channel digital video recorders are ample for most small shops and home video surveillance, although we also stock larger 8 and 16 channel CCTV DVRs that can be suitable for larger properties. A mini DVR or standalone DVR can be good for those situations where stealth and secrecy are important. We sell mini DVR with wireless as well if you want to place your mini DVR in a hidden place or don't want to drill holes to accommodate for cables.

One of the main things to look out for with a CCTV DVR recorder is the number of frames per second (FPS), ideally you would want 25 per camera (which is the same rate as standard TV). Therefore a 4 Channel Digital Video Recorder will require 100FPS, 8 channel DVR CCTV 200FPS and so on. You might also want to consider the way in which the Digital Video Recorder stores the footage. Either MPEG, MPEG-4 or the latest H.264 technology. H.264 will commonly record at a high resolution and use very little space on Digital Video Recorders. Using this technology a 500GB H.264 CCTV DVR security system will record for twice as long as standard video surveillance systems, great if you have bar, nightclub or restaurant where 30 days of recording is required by the police.

Most of our DVRs have a remote access option, letting you log in to securely view your cameras over the internet using a PC, or even on a mobile device. To get this up and running we can also offer a remote set up service, letting one of our support agents log in to your computer and configure everything for you. See here for more information.
