Basic digital recorder kits for private surveillance
With the ABUS digital recorder camera kits, you are relying on a compact and cost-efficient whole solution. In private homes, four camera channels are usually sufficient for surveillance of the most important areas. The recording runs continuously, according to a schedule, or on an event-controlled basis – triggered by motion detection or alarms.
Example System : Video Surveillance Set: Network Recorder + 2 Outdoor Wi-Fi Cameras
Video surveillance made easy with everything in one set
This complete set makes it easier to install video surveillance indoors or in unprotected outdoor areas. The set contains a four-channel network video recorder including a built-in hard disk drive with 1TB of storage space for approx. six weeks of continuous recording, two WLAN outdoor cameras, three power supply units and accessories.
Professional recording technology that is easy to operate
Depending on the setting, the recorder starts recording manually, following a time schedule or using a motion sensor. It can be operated conveniently using a mouse or via the ABUS iDVR Plus app. The video images are stored in brilliant quality at 25 frames/second (real time), only take up a small amount of space on the hard disk drive and have been optimised for quick network access. The IP66 protection class LAN outdoor cameras have a WDR function for optimum backlight compensation and are ideal for continuously monitoring entrance areas. Up to six (four PoE + two) ABUS cameras can be integrated into the system.
Quick and easy installation
The recorder’s PoE interfaces ensure that data and electricity are transmitted quickly and easily via network cable. The cameras can also be integrated wirelessly via a WLAN router – for a separate power supply.
The effective IR range will depend on the installation location. If there are surfaces that absorb light or no objects that reflect IR light in the field of view, the IR range will be reduced and/or the video image will be too dark. Reflective objects in the immediate vicinity of the camera (e.g. roof gutter or wall) may also result in the reflection of IR light, which can disturb the image.
How Secure Is Your CCTV and Security System?
We read a lot about unauthorised access to a variety of internet connected devices that are not secured properly. The ‘Internet of Things’ brings huge benefits to us in our daily lives but without proper configuration the very devices that are designed to help and assist us can cause problems.
A recent study revealed that the majority of internet connected devices, router and other assistive technology remains configured with the default security access, passwords and passkeys, all of which are readily available in the user manuals provided for the devices and made available online.
Wireless CCTV cameras are an excellent example of this, they need to balance the ease of use and setup with the need for security, many are just happy to configure their camera so it is visible from their smart phone or tablet while they are away but just how secure are they?
Stand alone CCTV cameras will need to connect to a third party service in order to announce their location to the viewer, this is so the app on the smart phone or tablet can locate the camera on the internet, this system is often configured incorrectly and armed with the default username and password for the camera the cyber intruder can gain access to the camera and see what the owner sees. Moreover, the cyber intruder can actually see when there is nobody home, notice patterns of behaviour and if inclined plan a visit.
Your CCTV cameras could actually be announcing when you are home and when you are not.
It’s crucial that these systems are configured correctly, installed correctly and secured agains all but appropriate access.
Systems from ABUS have got this in hand, their systems are backed by years of experience in all aspects of security and access control.
