DVR (Digital Video Recorder) records the picture digitally onto a hard disk drive, which produces much better playback picture (comparing to VCR), complete with date and time of the incident. The DVR records only when it detects a change in the video picture, eliminating endless hours of needless recording. The DVR neatly "catalogues" these events for easy viewing when required. The video archives can be viewed onsite or offsite via the Internet without affecting current recordings. In fact, DVRs can record new activity, display old archives and live viewing both on and offsite all at the same time.
The DVR is PC based which, unlike embedded systems, is very flexible and very user friendly.
The price is determined by its capabilities such as:
how many cameras it can handle,
how long it can archive video and
how fast it can display both live and archived images.
1 The DVRs are built for 4 cameras, 8 cameras, or 16.
The archiving capability is determined by the size of the hard disk drive (HDD). Our standard HDD is 250 GB for 4and 8-channel DVR. Some customers require only a few days of archiving while others need several weeks of recording. Additional disk drives can be easily added for expanded weeks or even months of archiving.
When you and I watch a person or vehicle in motion, we actually see this motion at 30 frames or images per second. The DVR for 4 cameras that we recommend is 120 FPS (Frames Per Second), therefore a DVR rated at 120FPS will offer excellent playback video in case you use only 4 cameras. DVR for 8 cameras is recommended with 240fps.
Using high speed Internet connection the premises can be viewed from home and any other place off-site via Internet connection and assigned password. Internet access is granted to authorized users only and cannot be viewed by the general public. The video image will include the date and time of an accident and it is usable in court if required.

This is the system that has proven more cost effective and more usable for our customers. It is Internet ready, it allows remote viewing without installing software, it allows remote servicing, it is Windows based and the users are more familiar and comfortable to manage with the recorder and the remote access.
One-year warranty on DVR, cameras and parts as per the supplier at no cost.
Installation time would be about two days and can be done almost immediately.
The less expensive solutions are available but the servicing and the hassle for the owners is going to add up more than the initial investment in PC based system.
Armour Alarms Inc. keeps their prices low, but we are willing to beat any competitors’ estimates on the same equipment GUARANTEED!
