Support Transcript:

Business Owner: Hello. I am looking for a 4 camera security system that has audio surveillance capability.

CCTV Support: Hello.  I will be able to help you with that.  You can add an audio surveillance microphone to any of the 4 camera systems that we offer.  You also need a set of CCTV cables with audio for each camera that you want to ad a microphone to.  Here is a link that explains how to setup the surveillance microphone.

Business Owner: Do the DVRs that you sell support recording the audio?

CCTV Support: The surveillance DVRs that we supply do support the ability for you to both record the audio as well as listen to it live over speakers.  I have 2 recommendations as far as which DVR to use.  If you want a stand alone DVR, I recommend this stand alone surveillance DVR with Audio support.  If you prefer a PC based system, I recommend this Geovision PC surveillance DVR with Audio support.

Business Owner: Which cameras can I use with the Audio?

CCTV Support: All of our cameras work with the microphone and the two DVRs that I mentioned.

Business Owner: Thank You for your help. I do not have any further questions and will be back when I am ready to place my order.

CCTV Support: Your welcome.  Have a great weekend.
