There are many systems on the market and it can be very confusing as to which combination of cameras and equipment you are likely to need.
Here at Holt Security System we advise on one typical setup which combines a number of CCTV Camera’s that wire back to a DVR digital recorder (EZHD Series).
Having researched many products on the market we have found the EZHD series to be the best all round system in terms of picture quality, price, reliability, and most importantly, easy of use.
It’s hard to find a better system.
The EZH4/LITE is intended to protect a standard domestic household / light commercial installation and will typically have 4 cameras, a sinlge DVR recording unit (as shown above) and uses a standard computer monitor. The DVR recorder contains a hard drive, similar to that of a computer, that stores the camera recordings. Hard drives come in sizes from 500 Gigabytes and can go up as far as 2 Terrabytes, which could be almost a years recordings.
A standard recording lenght is normally 28 days, after which day 1 will be over ridden. So there is always at least a months worth of continual recording on the DVR units hard drive.
The EZH8/LITE provides the option to support up to 8 cameras having the same features as the EZH4/LITE unit.
The EZHD can support 4,8, or 16 cameras and records in high quality (H.264 )HD format. The units also comprise of built in DVD recorders for easy copy to dvd. The EZHD has all the same high quality feature as the LITE but has higher quality recording, faster search with mouse control (included) and is compatible with all apple mobile products for remote viewing access.
HDMI output allows the system to be connected directly to a HD TV and up to 4 Terrabytes hard drive for optimal storage. This unit comes with a handy remote control the size fo a credit card making operation simple.
The DVR comes standard with an ethernet port allowing it to be connect to a local area network.
