Entry Level DVR (Digital Video Recorder)

All our entry-level D/NVR’s (Digital or Network Video Recorders) are designed for small to medium sized applications, with HD-quality (evidence-grade) footage which can be recorded for ‘Playback’ & ‘Backup’ purposes.

Entry-level systems are suitable for a range of small-scale applications, including:

  • Domestic CCTV monitoring
  • Small public venue CCTV monitoring
  • Small/mid-size business unit surveillance

Entry-level recorders are ideal for domestic or small/medium business, recorders that do not require all the ‘whistles and bells’ which are built into more expensive recorders, (which you’re unlikely to use). These functions would include: ‘Advance AI functions (analytics)’, ‘Alarm in/outputs’, Etc.

However, all our entry-level recorders do have some built-in analytic functions such as: ‘Motion detection’, ‘Line crossing’ (AKA Tripwire) & ‘Intrusion detection’ see recorders individual specifications for further details.

All our entry-level recorders are capable of HD recordings, from 1080p (2Mp), 5Mp & 4K (8Mp) ideal for evidence preservation for Law enforcement. Again, see recorders individual specifications for details.
