Security camera systems used in conjunction with DVR systems are a popular choice for home security surveillance systems. DVR based systems are available in a variety of configurations and they are available in both stand alone and PC based models. You don’t have to be an expert computer user to operate and manage a PC based DVR security system but it does help to have some computer skills. While a stand alone DVR Security system is a perfect solution for PC phobic people or someone who just wants a push button turnkey system.

Lets discuss the merits of the PC based DVR security systems. The computer contains all the usual stuff (motherboard, network card, video board, hard drive and memory) but it also includes DVR capture card. This DVR capture board can have 4, 8 or 16 video inputs. The video inputs receive analog signals from the cameras. The analog video is converted to a digital format and then compressed using mp4 compression. The compressed video is stored as data on the hard drive for archiving and playback. PC based DVR’s provide far better video recording clarity over time lapse and are generally more flexible than standalone DVR’s. These units are available as kits which you install on your PC. You can also buy systems pre-configured with all the functionality you need for your Surveillance system. Use the link: PC based DVR CCTV Security to find out more.
