Security Camera System Features
Below is an outline of features that are standard in all of our security camera systems, regardless of whether it is a HD IP camera system or Security DVR system. Even our 2 camera systems come with the same standard features as our larger and more advanced systems. The difference between systems is the recording resolution, the camera type, lens and infrared night vision distance. If you are looking for a security camera system custom-built to your needs, then we suggest using one of our custom security system builders.Weather Proof Cameras
Our outdoor security cameras have a weather rating of IP66. These cameras are unaffected by a range of weather conditions including rain, snow, sand, and temperature variances. When we say our cameras are IP66, we mean it. You can put them outside without any cover on a pole in the middle of nowhere, and they will withstand the brutality of mother nature, short of a hurricane or tornado.
H.264 Video Compression
H.264 compression is a form of video compression that allows the DVR to capture video from the camera and store it on the hard drive inside. The H.264 codec greatly reduces the size of your digital video files without compromising video quality. Thanks to this video compression technology you can record great quality while maximizing hard drive space.
Multiplex operation enables simultaneous user operations of the security camera DVR. You can view live video, playback recorded video on the DVR or remotely, back up video to a flash drive, without ever affecting the recording process on the DVR.
Multi User Login
Thanks to the strong processor in our DVR recorders, you can have up to 10 users login simultaneously in to the DVR and view/playback video without ever stopping the recording process.
Free iOS/Android Apps
Remote view your surveillance system on your iPhone, iPad or Android device. Every system comes with a free app that allows you to view your cameras anywhere in the world as long as you have internet.
Selectable Recording Modes
Based on your security needs, you can choose from multiple recording settings on the DVR that comes with our systems. You can record continuously for 24 hours 7 days a week. You can select to record on a set schedule for specific days and times or upon motion detection where the system will record when it detects movement in view of any of the cameras.
The motion detection feature of CCTV Camera World systems allows for setting motion detection zones where you can select areas in view of each of your cameras in which you would like to detect motion. The motion detected within those areas can trigger recording of that one camera or any other camera in your system. This motion detection feature allows you to save hard drive recording space so you can record longer than the stated time above, and only record instances where something is actually happening in view, thus saving you a lot of time when you go back to view recorded video.
Motion activation also can be configured to send you motion alerts to your phone, email, or trigger the internal buzzer on the DVR.
For areas with high traffic or of high importance such as casinos, schools or retail stores, in which constant monitoring is required, the system can continually record 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. With the auto-overwrite feature, there will never be a lapse in recording when the hard drive space is full. The video recording will automatically overwrite the oldest video first.
You can set your DVR to record on a day/time schedule based on your needs. For instance, if you only want the cameras behind the cash register to record during business hours while the outdoor cameras can be scheduled to record when the business is closed. The schedule can be set for all cameras or specific cameras.
Easy To Use
If you can hook up your DVD player to your television, then you can install your own security camera system. To simplify the process, we have several YouTube videos that will teach you by example how to connect all the wires together and operate the friendly point & click interface of our security DVR recorders. The DVR is easy to operate thanks to the intuitive user interface and the included mouse, and hand-held remote control.
Video and images can be easily backed up using the DVR’s intuitive timeline by selecting a time frame to export to a USB flash drive. You can also remotely backup video to your computer over the internet using the included free software.
For ease of use, all of our systems come with plug and play cables that carry both video and power from the DVR to the camera. There is no need to have a separate electrical socket located at each camera (unless where indicated). We also have bulk cable available so that you can cut specific cable lengths to your needs. You can purchase Siamese CCTV cablewith connectors from the drop down menu above.
Free Pre-configuration Service
Upon request, we can configure the DVR IP address according to your network settings. Just let us know what IP address, gateway and subnet you would like your system to be configured. By default, all DVRs ship out with auto-overwrite feature activated so that it will automatically recycle over the oldest video when it reaches capacity.
No Contracts, No Monthly Fees
There are no monthly charges, no binding contracts and no overage fees. Once you’ve installed your system, simply connect the DVR to your internet router or modem and you can view your cameras anywhere in the world at no additional charge.
