In today’s article we are going to talk about network video recorders, commonly called NVRs. In addition, we are going to discuss one of the most popular brands that we utilize, Dahua Technologies. This will help to give you an essential understanding of one of the components of your security camera system.
What Is A Network Video Recorder Or NVR?
A network video recorder is the central device for your security camera system. All of the cameras in your system connect to the NVR and the NVR saves the footage to a hard disk (or sometimes relays it to the cloud). Because the NVR is so central to your security camera system, it is important that you buy a quality device. A lack of quality will be noticeable and could result in your whole system failing.
It is important to note that you may also hear the term DVR. DVR stands for digital video recorder. Unlike an NVR, the digital video recorder is not a network device. With an NVR the data is transmitted via internet protocol to the storage. This allows for a higher quality of footage and more devices to be connected to one NVR. A DVR, on the other hand, is a device that uses analog signals to transmit data.
Dahua Technologies is a worldwide manufacturer of security camera technology. The company has a large number of products, including high quality NVRs. The company is well-respected in the world of security cameras, they produce a number of high-end devices. Beyond that, customer service and research and development are important to Dahua.
