Do you need an NVR camera system for your property?


If you’re looking to buy a camera system, it’s important to understand all of the different types of systems and what they have to offer.

In this article, we will discuss the benefits of a network video recording (NVR) system with on-site storage and how it differs from a wireless camera system.

In the last few years we have seen many changes in the security industry, one of which is the adoption of NVR cameras. NVR cameras are sometimes considered to be better than wi-fi cameras because they allow users to monitor all their home’s security cameras from one central location.

A network video recorder is the central hub of your surveillance system, storing footage and managing all connected cameras on an external hard drive within range of its respective cameras.  NVRs are usually connected to a monitor or display device, so that the owner can watch live streams or playback footage.  This can be done remotely or locally through an app on the phone or tablet. This makes it possible to watch over important locations 24/7 from anywhere in the world.

There is also no monthly cost or storage fee for NVE cameras.  If you prefer having control over your data without relying on third parties or cloud services, this may be the best choice for you.

One of the biggest benefits of an NVR system with on-site storage is that it’s more secure than a wireless camera system.

In addition to being secure, NVRs are also more reliable than wireless cameras because they don’t rely on batteries or internet connections.  Onsite video recording is the best way to ensure that your images are always available, even if there’s an internet connection outage or power surge. Surveillance in remote locations like out buildings, boat docks, warehouses, or factories that often don’t have reliable cell phone service or WiFi connection available is possible with an NVR system.

The resolution and night vision capabilities of NVR cameras are better than some  standalone systems, which means they can capture more detail in low light situations and provide better coverage over a larger area.

NVRs also typically offer higher-quality audio recording than standalone systems making it easier to identify voices or sounds that could be useful when reviewing footage after an incident has occurred.

NVRs tend to have higher frame rates than standalone systems which allows them to capture more frames per second.  When played back at normal speed they appear smoother than their less-capable counterparts

Wireless Cameras

Wireless cameras: Wireless IP cameras connect directly with an existing Wi-Fi router in order to stream live video.   The camera uses cloud storage, uploading any captured video onto an external server that’s accessible from anywhere via web browser or mobile application.

Wireless cameras are more susceptible to interference from other wireless devices using wi-fi, such as phones and TVs. This can lead to video quality issues and reduced range for the camera. Cameras with a shorter range may not reach the entire property, leaving gaps in your coverage.
