Surveillance DVR Support Questions
The following transcript includes questions on our 16 channel surveillance DVR (JPEG Series).
Customer: I have some questions on the JP2016 surveillance DVR
Technical Support: Hi Customer
Customer: Hi Technical Support
Technical Support: Do you have some questions about our surveillance DVRs?
Customer: yes, a couple. One, what exactly is the spot monitor?
Technical Support: Each camera channel has a spot monitor output which is used
if you want to have a monitor dedicated to that channel. This is in addition to
the main monitor output for all channels which can be run split screen
according to how many security cameras the DVR model supports.
Customer: oh i see, does this unit have motion detection? if so can it do
it based a certain area of the video?
Technical Support: Yes it has motion detection and areas can be masked to be
included / excluded from the motion detection areas. Sensitivity is also
adjustable on each channel.
Customer: great, now it says it has a web based/cleint software, does that mean
downloaded software as well as web page only viewing?
Technical Support: The JP series surveillance DVRs do not support web browser
access. There is a windows client application that must be installed for
internet / network access. This application comes on a CD in the box with the
Technical Support: We have other DVRs that support access via Internet Explorer
if that is required.
Customer: I see, I was told this is what I need to control 16 pelco cameras
mostly with PTZ
Technical Support: The DVR-JP2016 does support Pelco PTZs.
Customer: Does the DVR have the option to send motion detect images to email account? if so, is it
built into the dvr itself or is it done through software on pc?
DVR Support: The DVR does not support sending motion detected images to
an email account, however our Geovision systems do which can be seen
here: Geovision Surveillance Systems.
The email motion detected event feature is built into the Geovision software installed on the PC based DVR.
Customer: does the dvr have ddns support through any free dns account?
DVR Support: Yes, both the JPEG stand alone surveillance DVRs and our Geovision PC based
surveillance DVRs support DDNS with software built into the systems and
come with free DDNS accounts that you can sign up for. Also if you
have a router that supports DDNS through dyndns.com, you can look at
this webpage in the DDNS section for instructions on setting up
DDNS for surveillance through your router.
Customer: is there a
way to download a manual anywhere? thank you very much for your
DVR Support: The manuals for all of our stand alone DVRs can be found here: surveillance DVR manuals.
Additional and even better instructions for many functions of the stand alone DVR can be found here:
and our Geovision support page here.
Customer: ok, i see it only does cd backups, are the files small, how much fits
on a cd?
Technical Support: The JPEG DVR now comes with DVD-RW. The website has not
been updated to reflect this yet. The files are pretty large. The
amount of video that will fit on a DVD varies based on the recording settings
and frames per second.
Customer: ok, do you have any demo vidoes to see quality?
Technical Support: Yes. One second.
Technical Support: Here are some images of the DVR viewer.
The pictures were taken remotely in Florida
and show real life installation like from a gas station in North
Carolina for example. If you want a live surveillance system video demonstration, I can
schedule one later tonight or tomorrow night and have you log into a system remotely.
Customer: ok, well you seem to know your stuff, I just wanted to ask if I am in
fact looking at the right unit for what I have? and yes a demo does sound
like a good idea.
Technical Support: OK. do you prefer later this evening or tomorrow?

if not how bout tommorow?
