Full Description

Hikvision have designed this HiWatch 4 channel CCTV DVR specifically for home security, with many of the same recording options as their professional recorders, but without the bulky size and price tag to match. It records footage from up to 4 cameras in HD quality, and can be set up with a host of scheduling options.

The hybrid recorder uses 4-in-1 technology to work with almost all CCTV cameras that use the standard twist-fit BNC connector, so it will be compatible both with new HD cameras and legacy equipment that you may already have installed. When used with 720p cameras, a special long distance transmission setting allows it to work with cabling up to 1200m in length, so large properties aren't a problem either. It can even support up to 5 IP cameras recording at 960p resolution.

With compatible cameras, you can also enable H.264+ encoding, which increases recording times without losing quality. You can connect the recorder directly to an HD monitor either using VGA or HDMI, or alternatively connect it to your network. Once configured, this lets you easily access live or recorded footage from anywhere using a PC, phone or tablet.
