DVR: The component-style DVR lets you monitor and record video (at up to 120 fps) from up to 16 remotely-mounted cameras. Sixteen BNC video inputs are provided to plug in the cameras. The unit also has one audio input and one audio output for use with an optional microphone system. (The included cameras are not audio capable.) The system uses H.264 video encoding and G.711 audio encoding. You can simultaneously record to the hard disk, while playing back recorded video. The DVR comes with a full-featured wireless remote control.
Recording Modes: You can record any or all cameras manually, triggered by an event, or create a recording schedule. Events include motion detection anywhere on the screen, or within a customizable window, video loss (caused by camera disconnection), or tampering (change of camera’s framing direction, blocked lens, or other overall change of scenes from the video). You can set a recording schedule for a specific date and time with specific start and end times. With each recording, you can set the resolution, frame rate, and recording quality for each channel.
Live Monitoring: You can monitor all 16 connected cameras at the same time, or any of the cameras individually. Single camera monitoring can be done in sequence, or selected manually. The DVR has an HDMI port to connect it to a TV, and a VGA port for connecting to a computer monitor. Both HDMI and VGA monitor signals can be output simultaneously. The video outputs have a resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD), 1280 x 720 (HD), or 928 x 480 (WD1).
SmartViewer: The DVR supports real-time monitoring via a network connection. With Samsung’s SmartViewer software (included), you can connect and control the system from your PC via a network connection. You can also search for, and playback recorded video remotely. SmartViewer is compatible with Windows XP, Vista, 7, and 8, as well as Mac OS X 10.7 / 10.9.
Optional Wi-Fi Adapter: With the optional SEA-W01ACN Wi-Fi Adapter, you can connect the DVR to your PC or Mac wirelessly via Wi-Fi. The adapter plugs into the rear USB port, and is compatible with IEEE 802.11 a/b/n/ac on the 2.4GHz and 5 GHz bands. The adapter works with Windows, Linux, and Mac OS.
Mobile Viewer: Using Mobile Viewer management software, you can also view video from your security system on an iOS or Android tablet or smartphone using the free iPOLis Mobile app. The app is compatible with iPhone/iPad running iOS 5.1.1, 6.0, 6.0.2, 6.1, 7.0, 8.0 or later, as well as Android devices with version 2.3.5, 4.0.3, 4.1.2, 4.2, 4.3 and up. In addition to monitoring multiple cameras, you can also playback recorded video from the DVR.
Notifications: The system can send instant email notifications when motion is detected, or when cameras are tampered with. This allows you to respond instantly when unexpected events arise. When a camera is redirected, vandalized, or covered up, you are notified, and recording to the DVR automatically begins.
Privacy Masking: If there are areas in the camera’s view that you do not wish to show, you can use privacy masking to obscure those areas. Up to 4 zones per camera can be selected for privacy masking.
Pan Tilt Zoom: When PTZ-capable cameras are connected, you can set up each camera to pan and tilt up/down/left/right in a constant pattern, or when an alarm is triggered. You can also control the panning speed, zoom, focus, and iris. None of the included cameras are PTZ-capable.
Video Playback: When you are ready to play back recordings, you can search by time, type, or channel. Videos can be played back at normal speed, fast play, slow play, manual frame-by-frame playback, and reverse play. You can switch to the previous or next file, or any file in the current play list. If there are files from another channel recorded at the same time, you can immediately switch to that file. All channel synchronous real time playback is also available. In continuous play mode, the next file automatically plays when the current file ends.
Backup: The DVR allows you to backup your HDD to the PC where the program is currently running, or via the provided High Speed USB 2.0 port on the rear panel. You can use a flash drive, portable HDD, or a disk burner. The device should be formatted in FAT 32 format.
