The HD security camera systems on this page include a hybrid video surveillance DVR that works with both standard definition analog CCTV cameras and AHD high definition security cameras. The systems work great for home surveillance and business surveillance. Both camera types can use RG59 coaxial cable. We include a spool of RG59 Siamese cable with each system. Siamese cable includes the coax cable and an 18/2 conductor power wire so that you can run a single cable for both power and video. BNC connectors and a cable crimping tool are also included. The HD cameras included with these systems capture video at 720p resolution, or 1280 x 720 pixels. You can see a comparison of HD CCTV vs analog CCTV resolution here.
Important Update! Our 720p systems have been replaced by these 1080p HD camera systems. Please visit that page for the latest systems that we recommend.
Do you need a different number of cameras or a mix of different camera types? CCTV Camera Pros can provide a custom HD security camera system quote that includes a hybrid iDVR-E surveillance DVR, any number of cameras SD and HD CCTV cameras you need plus cables, connectors, power supplies, and monitors?
As you see on this page we offer systems in pre-made packages. However, it is not possible for us to package up every combination and quantity of all the different camera models that we supply. So, we can provide you with a custom quote with as many cameras as you need and a mix of any combination of camera model(s) based on your project requirements.
Hybrid Analog / HD Surveillance DVR
The DVRs included with the video surveillance systems on these page are SD / HD hybrid. This means that both traditional analog security cameras and AHD high definition security cameras can be used.
Here is how it works.
Originally, CCTV cameras supported D1 resolution which is 704 x 480 pixels.
Then, 960H CCTV cameras were introduced which support 960 x 480 resolution (a wider format CCTV).
In 2015, full HD 1080p AHD cameras will be available.
All of these CCTV video formats work using the same RG59 coax cable to run video from the camera to the DVR. However, the video encoding is different between traditional CCTV (D1 and 960H, also known as standard definition - SD) and AHD.
This iDVR-E works with both traditional CCTV and AHD cameras. Users can also mix CCTV and AHD cameras on the same recorder (hybrid).
Important! If both camera types will be used, they need to be grouped in pairs of 2 by type.
For example, you can have 2 SD cameras on channels 1 and 2, and 2 AHD cameras on channels 3 and 4.
You can also install SD cameras on all channels or HD cameras on all channels, but again, when you mix technologies, it must be done in groups of two.
The iOS app lets users access the live view of their security cameras from remotely over the Internet. The iOS app works on iPhone and iPad devices. The app also supports remote search and playback of recorded surveillance video footage (video that has already been recorded to the DVR hard drive).
The Windows client DVR software supports remote live camera viewing and recorded video playback.
Remote Web Browser Access
In addition to the client applications for Mac and Windows PCs, users can also access their DVR from the Internet Explorer web browser. This feature only works with IE.
