Full Description As the world's largest manufacturer of video surveillance technology, Hikvision has built a trusted reputation for reliability. The DS-7204 is a perfect example of this- a compact 4 channel CCTV DVR with real time 960H recording. The small size and easy usability of the recorder make it a perfect option for home security, but it's also loaded down with customisable features, making it suitable for use in a small commercial property such as a shop.

The key to any modern CCTV recorder is versatile remote access, letting you check on the safety of your property no matter where you are. Naturally, the Hikvision DS-7204 has one of the most reliable and in-depth sets of remote access features available on the market for a recorder of this price. Securely log in to the device using a PC in order to view live footage or recordings, as well as to customise almost all of the unit's recording options. This can even be done on a Mac- something many similar DVRs are unable to offer. You can also log in to view your cameras whilst on the move using a smartphone, with Android, iOS and Windows phone devices all supported using the free app.

Whilst provide full instructions on how to configure remote access, it can be daunting for those unfamiliar with the likes of routers and IP addresses. Because of that we also offer a remote setup service, where one of our support agents can get it all up and running for you. Add the setup via the drop-down above, or see here for more details

Of course, remote access isn't much use without the ability to save high quality footage, and this DVR has some impressive specs when it comes to recording. Each of the 4 channels of video can record at 960h resolution (960x576) in real time, ensuring smooth video full of detail. This also makes it perfect for Sony EFFIO CCTV cameras, as you will not lose any of their quality in the recording. As with all of our professional DVRs, the unit has a wide range of flexible recording options, including motion detection and scheduling, set on a channel by channel basis. The device also boasts a host of connection options, including HDMI video output, audio input, PTZ and even alarm connections- all allowing you to easily integrate it into an existing home security system.

This kit ships with a 500GB HDD preinstalled to store many days worth of continuous footage, however this can be upgraded to allow longer monitoring times or higher quality recording settings by choosing from the drop-down menu at the top of the page.
