The new range of IP cameras and NVR’s from FLIR marks an exciting step forward in the world of CCTV. High quality cameras and recorders from an trusted and established industry name at an affordable price, supported by state-of-the-art Cloud based content management systems are not the sorts of things that come to market every day. To mark the launch of the new range and the announcement that Q Security Systems has been appointed as the Australian distributor, we thought we would take a quick look and see what all the noise was about.
FLIR DNR400 Series
FLIR’s new DNR400 Series NVRs further accelerate high definition recording, offering higher capacity 200 Mbps processing for real-time recording with cameras up to 5MP. With eight, sixteen or thirty-two integrated Power over Ethernet (PoE) inputs and PoE+ support, installation is made simple. No programming or configuration is necessary as the NVR automatically discovers FLIR IP Cameras on the network. Plus, drive mirroring enables back-up recordings to the second internal hard disk drive to keep data secure.
The DNR400 Series NVRs offer real-time recording in Full HD on each channel while also providing pentaplex operation enabling users to simultaneously view, record, playback, backup and remotely monitor cameras.
The DNR400 Series NVRs also support 2x SATA HDDs up to 4TB (8TB total)
Enabling users to mirror information between the two internal hard drives backing up to external drives via the 2 in-built USB 2.0 ports
However, perhaps the greatest feature of the new DNR400 series is the inclusion of the FLIR Cloud, an easy-to-use, cloud-enabled service that provides remote viewing and control of multiple cameras from various locations via iOS, Android, PC or Mac devices. No complex router configuration is required, making video monitoring easier than ever before. Setting up remote viewing is achieved in three easy steps: install the free FLIR Cloud app, scan the QR code on the NVR and then view live video.
Users can even set up multisite viewing on FLIR Cloud CMS for PC / Mac.
