Surveillance Video offers two network recording solutions: network video recorders and network video software.
A Network Video Recorder or NVR is an internet protocol based device that sits on a network. Because they are IP based, Network Video Recorders can be managed remotely via a LAN or over the Internet giving greater flexibility. The basic function of an NVR is the simultaneous recording and remote access of live video streams from an IP Camera.
Network video software is installed on a PC and provides video monitoring, recording, and event management functions. Users can record video continuously, on schedule, on alarm and/or on motion detection. The software generally has multiple search functions for recorded events.
