The moment I initially began my own business I desired so badly to bring down expenses. But I understood there were things that had to be spent for to ensure that my operation would run smoothly.
For better security I began looking into hidden security camera systems on the web. Throughout my search I discovered how helpful these were for keeping track of activity 24 / 7. As my partner already had surveillance cameras on hand we just needed to buy the right recording device to complete our surveillance system.
What is especially interesting about an embedded DVR is that it can run without a computer. The hard drive has no software program because all its functions are embedded on its own software. The setup as well as operation is simple because it works much like a VCR.
I went ahead and bought a 4 channel embedded DVR to connect our cameras to. In a modest office such as ours 4 spy cameras should be sufficient to keep track of movement. Videos can be watched in real time.
A DVR such as this can change analog video to digital and will keep the video recordings on a hard disk drive. With them saved in a disk drive I will be able to obtain the recorded videos easily without the need to rewind or fast-forward. All digital recordings may be catalogued by date time or event for fast viewing.
The DVR features H.264 video compression and also network streaming. What this simply means is the fact that I can stream videos live using the Web. Moreover with remote monitoring I could watch the videos away from the actual location of the cameras like in my bedroom.
One more interesting aspect of the 4 channel embedded DVR which I have is it works with smart phones just like iPhone Blackberry and Android. So I can monitor occurrences while I am on the go.
The use of hidden security camera systems in businesses should never be neglected. After all part of achieving success is being aware always of what is taking place in your company.
