A security camera with recorder is a complete camera system where the images are stored on a network video recorder (NVR). The recorder has an SD card slot or HDD slot where the camera images are stored. Companies and institutions always work with a security camera system with a recorder, because this is the most stable way of camera security. The cable that runs from the recorder to the security camera is a UTP cable. This cable transmits the images from the camera to the recorder and from the recorder to the camera. Many companies already have network cables that can also be used for this. The system can be set in the recorder. You can connect 1 to 64 cameras to the system if you choose the right recorder. The settings of the cameras and alarms are all controlled in the recorder. Here you can also play back and save the footage when you want to use it.
When to choose a security camera with recorder?
When higher security is required than just monitoring, a security camera with recorder is the best choice. This is because a camera system with a recorder is a closed system and is therefore hardly susceptible to interference. The security camera system with recorder is also safer than a system where the storage takes place on the camera itself.
The advantages of a surveillance camera system with recorder
It is not for nothing that companies and institutions always opt for a security camera with recorder instead of a stand-alone solution. The advantages of a camera system with recorder are:
- Storage of the images in-house
- Due to working with cables, not sensitive to interference
- Can be used with or without internet
- No cloud or subscription required, but your own cloud is possible
- All functionalities such as Smartphone App and the like
The biggest disadvantage of a security camera with recorder is the installation. Because cables have to be pulled from the recorder to the surveillance camera, it may not always be possible to do this yourself. Although this is a one-time disadvantage, we always advise our customers to take the time for this or to call in an expert who can take care of the installation. After this initial inconvenience, you no longer have to worry about it.
