Built-in Power over Ethernet (PoE)

16ch PoE IP Camera NVR

Viewtron NVRs have built-in PoE ports that allow you to directly plug PoE IP cameras directly into the Ethernet ports. The NVR provides power to the cameras and the cameras will automatically connect to the NVR software. This makes installation extremely easy. We highly recommend Viewtron IP cameras with PoE for use with these NVRs.

Here is some additional information about the ports on the back of the NVR (starting from left to right).

  • To the right of the PoE ports, there is a LAN port (labeled in purple). If you plan on connecting your NVR to a network and / or the Internet, you will use this port to connect to your router or switch.
  • Dual Ethernet ports allow you to have your IP cameras on a separate network.
  • Viewtron NVRs have HDMI and VGA monitor outputs. Both can be used at the same time for two monitors. The displays are mirrored (must be the same). The USB port can be used for the mouse that is included or for a USB drive for video backup / export.
  • There is one audio input port for an audio surveillance microphone. There is one audio output to connect external speakers.
  • Burglar alarm sensors can be integrated into these NVRs using the alarm input / alarm output ports. Please note that the latest generation 16 channel NVR has 16 alarm input ports
  • The power cord that is included with the NVR plugs into this port labeled red.

Complete Security Camera System Quote

Security Camera System

Did you know? CCTV Camera Pros can provide a complete surveillance system quote that includes any Viewtron DVR / NVR with cameras, cables, connectors, power supplies, and monitors? We can even mix and match IP cameras and BNC security cameras because Viewtron DVRs are hybrid. This means that they work with just about any type of security camera. As you have probably already seen on our website, we have 2, 4, 8, and 16 camera surveillance 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 carry. So, we can also 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.

Cash Register / POS Text Integration

CCTV POS Installation

The above diagram shows how a POS camera system / cash register camera can be installed with a Viewtron NVR and IP cameras. Viewtron POS integration allows point of sale text overlay on one or more security cameras on your system. The point of sale / cash register text can be captured via direct network integration or via the cash register printer port (RS-232 port) using our POS text inserter box. This is done by connecting both devices to the same network switch or router using CAT5 or CAT6 network cable. The IP camera can also be connected to the switch or it can be connected directly to the Viewtron NVR (because the NVR has built-in PoE ports).

You can learn more about Viewtron POS camera system / POS Text overlay here. Watch the video on that page to see a demo of the POS text overlay on live video and the POS text search and playback capability. You can also view your POS text remotely from the Viewtron desktop software for Mac and Windows, and via the Android and iPhone mobile apps.

Optional Wireless Remote

DVR / NVR IR Wireless Remote Control

Most of our customers prefer to use the USB mouse that is included to control their DVRs and NVRs. However, we do have an optional wireless remote control available. One function that customers do find useful to be able to control with the wireless remote is the ability to switch between live video display screen layouts. All of the other controls are much more convenient to access using the mouse that is included.

5 of 5 Not only AMAZING equipment, but SUPERIOR long-term January 17, 2024
Reviewer: Carl S from Springfield, MA  
I needed affordable, modern-day advanced or AI Camera technology for a custom project that included License Plate Reading (LPR), Vehicle Detection, Face Recognition, Tripwire/Intrusion Zones, and Alarm Signal Output. I knew the technology existed and that integration was possible, but I didn't know where to find it until I found CCTV Camera Pros.

The Viewtron NVR AI system completely exceeded my expectations and in my opinion is well worth every penny.

The documentation, videos, and walkthroughs available directly from their website made setup and configuration and absolute breeze. While I didn't have any problems, I had some questions to clarify and was more than happy with their response time, clarity, and guidance.

As I moved to optimize my system, I needed some help and they did not hesitate to respond and help above and beyond what I would say you typically find these days from other companies. They CONTINUE to blow me away with how they do business and fully embrace the customer relationship. It is clear that the CCTV Camera Pros team take pride in what they do and *WANT* to teach people how to be better.

CCTV Camera Pros will continue to be my very first go-to for any new project!
