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 Integration

CCTV DVR POS Installation

The above diagram shows how a POS system /cash register can be installed with a Viewtron DVR. This allows point of sale text overlay over one or more security cameras on your system. The point of sale / cash register is connected to the same network as the network video recorder. This is done by connecting both devices to the same network switch or router using CAT5 or CAT6 network cable. The security camera is hard wired to the DVR using coax cable. The BNC camera in the diagram can be an analog CCTV camera or an HD-over-Coax camera.

5 of 5 Great Customer Service and Product October 12, 2021
Reviewer: CathyJ from Puyallup, WA  
I previously had a security DVR from another company who closed their company and cancelled their mobile app.
Doing research on the situation, I came across CCTV CAMERA PROS, who were willing to help me find a comparable security system with a mobile app.
From the very beginning, Mike was very helpful and after I tried to set it up, I had some difficulty, Im not very tech savvy at all, he was very encouraging and patient with me, as I was ready to just send it all back, and he was very workable with that also.
He had told me if I needed any help setting it up to just reach out to them. I decided to just think about it for a bit then decided to keep it and when I tried again to set it up, knowing I could call them for assistance, it actually was very easy, and I didn't even need to call them.
Im pretty sure I was over thinking it the first time I tried, as it was actually quite simple to set up the second time.
Thank you Mike for your Awesome customer service and patience, it was great.

5 of 5 CCTV Camera Pros to the rescue July 26, 2021
Reviewer: JonathanC from West Palm Beach, FL  
Mike and Carlos were great to work with when my old CCTV DVR failed and would not allow me to remotely connect to my security feeds. The team was great in getting me a quality DVR that met my needs with simplistic set up and integration features into my existing system. Its great to have local support I can now call at any time here in Florida and I would highly recommend their team for your security camera needs.

5 of 5 Rehabilitate older DVR June 14, 2021
Reviewer: Kenneth G from San Diego, CA  
I'm an IT consultant tasked with rehabilitating a DVR system with 8 Coax cameras. The DVR had died and the original vendor abandoned us so I researched my options. I called CCTV and they suggested a Hybrid Viewtron VT-DVR-8 which would work with the 8 existing Coax cameras and let me expand coverage using up to 8 IP cameras. It worked great. It was all plug and play except I had to setup port forwarding for the smartphone app. The client was very happy. CCTV's tech support provided excellent guidance.

5 of 5 Very Good Experience May 12, 2021
Reviewer: MarkH from Saint Petersburg, FL  
It has been a very good experience in dealing with the people at CCTV Camera Pros and I am pleased with the equipment. James was my sales guy - and he was very helpful in putting together a system to fit my requirements and sent me helpful information so I felt confident with my purchase. From the technical support side, Zack has been extremely helpful on multiple occasions in addressing my technical questions. I would highly recommend CCTV Camera Pros.
