The 4 channel BJ-DVR404-5MP is a great choice when looking to upgrade
your existing analog system. The DVR offers the flexibility of using your
existing cameras along with newer HD security cameras so you can upgrade
gradually or all at once. The DVR is capable of up to 5MP Lite recording
and with its multi-format capability will automatically detect the type of
camera so you can mix and match any combination of analog and HD cameras
up to 5MP. When viewing or recording using the 1080p cameras the image
quality is far superior to standard cameras and the 16:9 aspect ratio
matches the HD displays most TVs and computer monitors provide.
Setting up the DVR is easy with a user friendly menu and recording options
include continuous, schedule, alarm and motion. Image adjustments for each
channel such as brightness, hue, contrast and saturation are available
along with arranging camera text overlays such as camera name and time and
date stamp. UTC (Up The Cable) control is also supported making it easy to
access the cameras on screen display menu or for PTZ control right from
the DVR through the coax cable.
Along with local viewing and playback the DVR can also be connected to the
Internet for remote viewing and playback on a computer using Internet
Explorer or through Android or iOS (iPhone) devices using the free
RXCAMVIEW app. Searching and playback can be done by time and date, all
day, alarm or motion. Backup is easy using a USB flash drive, USB hard
drive or through the network.
