Stream Video Recorder

Stream video recorder

A Stream video recorder (SVR) located at your home is highly recommended and is a must for 4 or more HD cameras.

Or you can choose to have motion detection, custom-defined camera analytics, or a specific triggered event to start your recordings.

An SVR offers the best of both worlds. You can still view your IP/WiFi cameras anytime – live – through your smartphone app, but you’ll also have full HD recordings at your home for retrieval and/or review whenever you wish. With an SVR as part of your video solution you’ll never miss a thing. The SVR supports up to 8 cameras and offers 1TB of storage. Can be added to a Professionally Installed Alarm System. Talk with a Curtis-Elite rep for more information!
