Another consideration is the playback of the video. For example, it might be good and well to know that you can go back say 24 hrs to view footage of what happened, but you don’t want to spend 24 hr watching the 24 hr footage. Believe me, I know many examples of exactly that happening, especially in areas that are busy with a lot of movement and you are trying to identify something specific, but you don’t know when it happened.
The management of the video feeds and the playback is controlled by software, we will delve into that in a later blog.
When choosing an NVR one of the most important things to consider is the number of channels (cameras) the NVR supports. If you think you may want to expand the number of cameras at a future date rather then purchase an NVR that supports more channels (obviously if you can afford it).
There is a lot to consider, and we hope that these blogs start to give you enough information to be able to ask the right questions. We will get into more in future blogs, but in the meantime, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact one of the Surion team or a professional installer.
