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 or H.264 Standalone DVR system will determine the features of yoru home or business security camera system

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.

Think You Don’t Need Home Security Cameras?

Security cameras have many uses, but some you may never have dreamed of.

Think you don’t need security cameras? Think again.

Many people might think that they do not need security cameras, because “nothing happens in my neighborhood” or “I have a dog” or one of a hundred other things to justify to themselves that security cameras aren’t needed.  We really wish this was true, but unfortunately in our world today it is not.  Security cameras can provide us not only with deterrent and coverage of what happens when we aren’t at home, but sometimes help explain even more sinister events like the tale that follows.

In Las Cruces, NM, a man is now in custody because a family discovered that their German shepherd had what appeared to be ‘shrapnel’ lodged in the dog’s chest.  Review of their security cameras showed them the unthinkable.  Their home cameras showed their 50-year-old neighbor shooting their dog at close range.  The cameras were installed, because they suspected that their other German shepherd was poisoned.  Their neighbor, of course claimed that he had no knowledge of what happened to their other dog.

Install home security cameras, and you never know what mysteries you might solve, or unthinkable evil that you might prove.


Home Security Cameras Prove Useful Again

Home Security Cameras, like our CD-5261 Outdoor Infrared Bullet camera help protect your home and neighborhood by providing a silent witness to everything that happens around your home.

Home Security cameras help protect your neighborhood

A forward-thinking resident who installed home security cameras has shown how they can pay off.  His cameras caught someone who is suspected of starting a house fire in his neighborhood.  This abandoned house caught fire not once, but twice in the same day.  The fact that he installed surveillance cameras around his house has provided the only evidence of who perpetrated the crime so far.  See more about this news story

Installing home cameras is a great idea for protection of your home and property in cases of theft and vandalism, but your cameras also may provide evidence of other crimes that happen in your neighborhood.  This can effectively help your entire community become safer.  As the resident says in the news coverage, “…it’s not (about) getting someone in trouble, but protecting my own neighborhood.”

Home security camera systems like our traditional CCTV cameras or high Definition IP cameras can provide you with video evidence of what happens in or around your home.  Systems vary from basic 1 or 2 camera budget systems up to MegaPixel High Definition camera systems delivering HDTV resolutions.  Each of our systems also include support for viewing your home remotely over your existing internet connection from PDA phones like iPhone, Android, BlackBerry or Windows phones.  This way, no matter where you are, you can see what is happening at your home in real-time with NO MONTHLY FEEs.
