Our new Real Time Standalone DVRs favorite features: Android Remote Access

Our new Real Time H.264 Standalone DVRs are a very popular way to increase the security of your home or business.  These DVRs (Digital Video Recorders) record from traditional CCTV cameras onto an internal hard drive digitally with motion detection.  With advanced motion detection capabilities, built in DDNS support (doesn’t require a static IP address like most DVRs), Real Time 30fps per camera recording at full D1 resolution, alarm sensor integration (water sensors, fire sensors, freeze sensors, etc), included Free remote internet setup and much more, it is almost surprising that the most popular feature hasn’t even been listed yet.  Our DVR-88xxRT series Standalone DVRs’ most popular feature is actually the Android remote security camera viewing and iPhone viewing.

These feature-rich H.264 Standalone DVRs deliver great quality remote viewing from Android PDA phones and Tablets as shown in the video below.


Standalone DVR systems help Home and Business Owners

It doesn’t take more than a few minutes perusing the news to find multiple mentions of security cameras these days.  It seems that security camera systems are popping up everywhere as homeowners and business owners alike are deciding that they have had enough of the vandalism, theft, violence or other disturbances, and are doing everything they can to protect their own homes and families legally.  Security camera systems offer great additions to virtually any home or business, with many shapes, sizes and qualities of cameras available to satisfy even the most demanding aesthetics.

The Standalone DVR will determine features and remote access capabilities of your system

Both home and business owners often find Standalone DVRs and DVR systems to be a popular selection when it comes to improved security.  These systems are composed of an H.264 Standalone DVR, which is the brains and storage for the camera system, and any style of cameras that are selected.  Unlike PC Based systems, Standalone DVRs and Systems do not require a PC to be running on site for record to occur, as the DVR is a self-contained recorder (about the size of a DVD player).  The initial focus of any home or business owner should be on the DVR, as this component has the greatest impact over the functionality, quality and frame rate (read smoothness) of the video.  Many discount Standalone DVRs employ cheaper chipsets, which deliver lower quality video and oft lower frame rate (choppy video due to missing frames).  A quality DVR will have Full D1 Resolution with Real-Time video frame rate (30 fps per camera).  However, the quality of a DVR does not end there.  As the brains of the system, selection will also determine the remote viewing capabilities of the system.  Choose wisely, as normally the access level that exists when you purchase the system will not change later, as standalone devices rarely have feature enhancements or improvements.  Many DVRs, like our DVR-8804RT, DVR-8808RT and DVR-8816RT H.264 Standalone DVRs provide industry-leading remote access capabilities, with access from IE, Windows PC/Laptops, Macs, iPhone, Android, BlackBerry, Windows Phones and more.  These features will allow you to always stay connected with the cameras while away from your home or office, so should definitely be taken into consideration when making a selection.
