Full Description As the world's largest manufacturer of video surveillance technology, Hikvision have built a reputation based on reliability and quality. The DS-7208 8 channel CCTV DVR is no exception, packing a host of professional features and recording modes into an easy-to-use package. This makes it perfect for use in both home security systems and business CCTV systems, such as in a shop, garage or warehouse.

One of the most essential features for a modern CCTV DVR is being able to instantly access your live cameras or recordings when you are away from your property. This allows round-the-clock security no matter where you are. The Hikvision DS-7208 has one of the most comprehensive and reliable set of remote access features on the market, allowing you to log in over the internet and view your cameras using a PC, Mac or even a mobile device. Logging in with a desktop computer even allows you to remotely change recording settings and time. For watching your cameras on a mobile device, simply download Hikvision's free app, compatible with Android, iOS and Windows phones.

Whilst full instructions for configuring remote access are provided, it can be daunting for users who are not comfortable with setting up routers or IP addresses. Because of this we also offer a remote configuration service, allowing one of our agents to get it all up for you. Simply add it from the drop-down at the top of the page, or see here for more details

To make sure all of that footage is filled with useful details, the DVR can record at resolutions up to 960H (960x576), more than enough to get the highest possible quality from a Sony EFFIO camera. It can even do this at 25fps on each camera simultaneously, meaning you don't have to record video with slow, jerky movement. As with all of our professional CCTV recorders, the device has a wide range of recording modes, including motion detection and scheduling- all adjustable on a camera-by-camera basis. Other advanced security features include alarm connections to integrate it into an existing security system, and PTZ connections, allowing you to use it to remotely control pan-tilt-zoom cameras.

The recorder is fitted with a 1TB HDD as standard, enough to record many days worth of continuous video across all channels. For extended recording you can of course simply upgrade this via the drop-down menu at the top of the page.
