BBB Rating & Reviews
CCTV Camera Pros is proud to have an
A+ rated with the Better Business Bureau. We also maintain a 5 star online review rating with ResellerRatings.com.
I want to use a Viewtron DVR as a replacement for my existing home security camera system. Can I use my existing cameras?
Most likely yes. If your existing DVR and cameras use BNC connectors and coax cable, our Viewtron DVRs will work 99% of the time because Viewtron DVRs are
compatible with almost all BNC security camera video types. The only type of BNC camera that will NOT work with Viewtron DVRs are SDI / HD-SDI cameras. SDI cameras were used for a short period of time by some manufacturers before the advent of AHD, HD-TVI, and HD-CVI for HD video over coax. There are not many SDI DVRs and cameras out there. If you need help researching if our Viewtron DVR will work with your existing security cameras, please email us the make and model and we will help. We have helped customers replace the following types of DVRs with Viewtron DVRs: QSEE, Night Owl, Samsung, Lorex, HikVision, Dahua, and many more.
Can I use my existing cable if I upgrade some of my cameras?
Most likely yes. It depends on the quality of your existing cable and how long the cable is.
4K BNC security cameras require a higher quality cable than 720p and 1080p cameras do. Some manufacturers supply good cable with their systems and some do not. Unfortunately, there is no way to know for sure except to test. When you are ready, you can order one camera from us and test it out with your existing cable to be sure. If it does not work, you can return it for a refund or we can supply better security camera cables at that time.
