CCTV Surveillance Digital Recording

i2i Security supply, install and service CCTV surveillance digital recording equipment including 16 channel DVRs, NCRs and hybrid standalone DCRs to homes and businesses in Oakville, Burlington and the Toronto area. 

Advances in Digital Recording technology over recent years have been of immense benefit to users of CCTV. A DVR (Digital Video Recorder) is a recording device which stores all the images onto internal hard drives and presents views of all cameras on a display. All recorded footage can be viewed simultaneously across all the cameras on the system. A user can go back to any time in the recording and playback a recording in a matter of seconds. The recorded images can be archived on hard drives or CDs.

The DVRs can be controlled to allow live and recorded footage to be viewed over the Internet using a Browser or Client software. This allows you to view your premises from anywhere in the world, additionally, PTZ cameras can also be controlled remotely over the internet.

Although digital surveillance technology has revolutionized the CCTV security industry, industry experts like i2i Security caution that all Digital Video Recorders (DVR) are not alike. Digital video surveillance technology could use either stand alone units or PC-based software which operates in conjunction with DVR cards (video cards which plug into computer terminals).

PC-based systems, while less expensive than a quality stand alone DVR, are easily compromised by hackers, are prone to viruses, and often run into problems after upgrading operating software.

Digital video recording security systems provide many features and benefits.
