If you have a aging CCTV camera video surveillance system that you invested too much money into, and find yourself drooling over the new Network IP Cameras, then there is hope. Speco announces the Speco H.264 16 Camera Hybrid Pentaplex Digital Video Recorder Family with Network DDNS Video Server, which is a new line of hybrid DVR’s that will let you hook up analog CCTV and network ip cameras.
If you have CCTV cameras that are working for you, you have 3 options if you need to expand:
- You can leave it alone and add more CCTV cameras, running more cable, though you can go to a video balun set up to make that easy.
- You can invest in a Hybrid DVR that will allow you to hook up analog and digital cameras.
- You can buy encoders that will convert the feed to digital, making the camera a network camera.
We will cover the Hybrid DVR in this post, and cover the encoder idea in another post. A hybrid DVR is a great way to transition into the digital world, as it’s still a fully functional DVR that you are use to, it will also let you expand with network cameras, which you can’t do with your current DVR.
You can also add Internet access, and Speco has FREE software you can download to give you the ability to view your video over your Blackberry, Android, iPone, iTouch, iPad, or Windows Media smart phone.
