High-Quality Megapixel Recording
Records high-quality video streamed from your network cameras in megapixel resolution. The megapixel resolution allows for greater detail and better identification of suspicious people. The NVR also takes advantages of H.264 compression technology, allowing you to record longer periods of time compared to other compression methods.
One Touch Backup
A one-touch backup button and the USB port on the front panel enable fast and easy data backup to external USB storage devices. Support for RAID-0 and RAID-1 also helps deliver better drive performance and adds an additional layer of data security to your surveillance system.
Easy Installation with iWizard
The setup process takes just a few steps using the intelligent Compro iWizard. iWizard makes the setup process fast and easy even for novice users. Simply install the hard drive, connect the cables, run the iWizard utility, and your NVR will be up and running in next to no time.
In addition to supporting the complete range of Compro's network cameras, the NVR can also record video from ONVIF-compliant network cameras. The support for ONVIF standard offers greater flexibility in building your own surveillance system.
* The Open Network Video Interface Forum (ONVIF) is a global and open industry forum with the goal to facilitate the development and use of a global open standard for the interface of physical IP-based security products.
Generic RTSP Streaming Support
There are a myriad of camera models on the market and compatibility across different manufacturers is not guaranteed. Compro NVR can receive and record standard-compliant Real Time Streaming Protocol (RTSP) stream from your generic RTSP camera, ensuring highest compatibility with your existing surveillance system.
Measuring only 23 centimetres long and 10 centimetres wide, and standing slightly taller than a soda can, the RS-2208 and RS2212 can fit nicely anywhere in the home, shop or office.
This standalone NVR system consumes less than 30 watts in operation, as opposed to the 300 watts power consumption of its PC counterparts. The advanced power management feature lets you minimize the power consumption by scheduling the NVR to power up or shut down or putting the hard drive into hibernation at specified times.
SMS & Email Notification
The event notification feature allows the sending of Email or SMS alert message once your Compro network cameras detect unusual events. The SMS notification service does not impose any monthly subscription fees, and the Email notification service supports popular webmail platforms.
Friendly Browser Interface
You can view the live video and manage your NVR from anywhere and at any time on your web browser. The NVR's browser interface, WebVUer, offers the capability to remotely search, play back, and export video recordings. The browser interface is so easy to use that there is virtually no learning time required.
You can adjust your PTZ camera directly on the NVR's browser interface. Use the 8 directional control buttons to pan and tilt and use the home button to return to the pre-set position. For fixed cameras, you can use the same buttons to control the digital PTZ function provided by the NVR's browser interface.
One-Click Camera Setup
The NVR's iStart feature lets you set up camera connections with a click of a button. With iStart, you don't have to configure connections between your NVR and your Compro network cameras one by one. Just click the iStart button and then all the available Compro network cameras will be automatically connected to your NVR.
Free Compro DDNS Service
The NVR provides a free Compro DDNS service for remote surveillance over the Internet. Compro DDNS service enables you to create an easy-to-remember domain name that links to your NVR's current public IP address, which means you can forget about the unfriendly IP address and log in to your NVR with a unique domain name of your own
Beautifully crafted icons in the setup menu allow users to access applicable functions with ease. Users can also input keywords to search available functions.
