A network video recorder (NVR) is the best option for surveillance systems. NVRs are easy to set up and they don’t require a professional making them an attractive option for all cameras. NVRs as opposed to the traditional options make a security system more reliable, they may be more expensive but depending on your needs they are a valuable investment.
They are embedded with custom-designed software that is unique to surveillance cameras. They require fewer updates, and they are easily replaced. In addition to that, they have a key feature that allows only authorized personnel to retrieve the footage adding another layer of protection.
They are low maintenance, their fans, hard drives, power supply, and batteries can be replaced or fixed on the spot. This makes repairs much easier and faster than with traditional PC-based systems.
Their features allow them to record video footage 24/7. In the event of a power outage, NVR-based systems will automatically shut down and power up by themselves to continue recording after the unexpected electrical event.
To connect a surveillance camera to a TV with an HDMI cable is painless. It is important to get an HDMI cable with a mini-jack and a standard jack on the opposite side. Then you connect the mini-jack to the camera and the standard HDMI jack to a TV.
Connecting a security camera to multiple TVs is no magic trick. It requires a little bit of planning and adequate equipment. You start by connecting your DVR to your TV using an HDMI cable. Then using an HDMI splitter, you can run your CCTV signal from your DVR to several devices or TVs. Using an HDMI splitter or distributor will allow you to view your CCTV footage from anywhere in your home. However, if your property still uses a co-ax to distribute TV signals, you will need a digital modulator to view your CCTV footage using that same co-ax network.
