DVR Front Panel

You Gotta Love Buttons!

DVR units other wise know as Digital Video Recorders, have stylish spaceship like lines like a fine automobile. The front panel is as much a work of art as it is
a unser interface. Each DVR or NVR can have unique features and as such each faceplate will have diffenet buttons. Some like this Ezviz 4 channel ezviz 4 channel dvrdoesn’t have much except a power button.  There are a few standard appointment that most DVRs have. This list would be:

  • Power Switch
  • Play, Pause, Rew, and FF
  • Menu, Enter, Up, Down, Left, Right(for menu navigation)
  • LED Activity Lights(status of Power,Record,Alarm and more)
  • USB Port(Removable Media Drive)
  • Remote Control IR Eye
  • Model Specific Buttons

The power switch is understood. Its a buttons that turns the DVR unit on. Play, Pause, Rewind, and FF are the typical
transit controls for the playback of recorded footage. Menus can be found with the usual menu button. And along with
that are UP, Down, Left, Right buttons to move around settings and menu pages. These are usually arranged in a circular
pattern with the Enter button directly in the middle of the arrangement. Status for specific settings can be checked at
a glance with LED lights indicating what’s active and what’s turned off. LEDs for power, record, and alert type are common.
USB ports put right on the front can be found on some models. This gives you extra storage, and now its portable.
Store recordings directly to USB or save your declared events to take evidence to the authorities without giving
away your entire DVR. DVRs and NVRs come with a computer mouse to help use the on-screen
GUI or (Graphical User Interface) and they also come with a remote control for the very same reason.
Some DVR will have more features and some will have less of course. Not all features can be accessed
from the front panel so the GUI is where most configuring is done. Consult the user manual for more detailed operation.

DVR Rear Panel

DVR Inputs/Output/Ports

Loads of Connectors

DVR rear input and output diagram

Let’s go over what the rear panel of the average DVR security system has to offer.
Layout is arrange according to input and output types, dictating order over the many connectors.

  • Camera Inputs(BNC)
  • Camera Outputs(BNC)
  • Audio Inputs
  • Audio Output
  • Ethernet Port
  • RS-485 Connection
  • Alarm Sensors
  • Alarm Output
  • DC Power Port
  • Grounding Stud

Cameras for security systems use the BNC style connector. These have been the industry standard for video for years now.
Its a 1/2 twist style connector with the extra sharp pin in the middle. That is the signal lead of the cable, the metal
collar is the ground connection point. Both inputs and outputs use BNC ports so a 8 channel NVR would have one input and
output for each channel, thats a total of 16 BNC connections. Audio has its own version of cable. 2-Way audio uses BNC
as well. Although a few brands may prefer the 1/8 inch jack for audio. RS-485 is for a single device-to-device interface
and also a communications bus that can be used to form networks of multiple devices. Let’s say you wanted to chain
together multiple DVR units, an RS485 interface provides the network to do just. Alarm sensors are optional on some
DVRs. An alarm sensor would be something such as a window breakage sensor, or a temperature sensor to alert of a fire.
Pin style connectors may be used for this as just a stripped bare wire is needed avoiding the cost of a connector.
The alarm output port is for adding an alarm siren or whatever your imagination can come up with. Its basically a
trigger output to turn on an external device. Of course there is a 12V DC port to power the unit. Many DVRs and
NVRs run on 12V Direct Current from a wall pack using 120V AC. Lastly, there may or may not be a ground stud.
This is good practice as outdoor cameras are in the elements. Imagine one getting struck by lightning. The ground
tab ensures good earth continuity in the event of power surges or short circuits.

DVR 2-Way Audio

“I Can See You, How Can I Help You?”…

Over the years, intercoms have advanced from the AC line transmission units you have be familiar with from decades ago. They worked, but would have lots of line noise and only one-way talking. Today we have some pretty cool ways to communicate via audio. In modern security camera systems, 2-way audio is becoming a popular option. Audio signals get sent a in few different ways depending on your setup. One way is to get the audio directly from a
camera speaker. Not all cameras have this feature, but as circuits become smaller and less expensive, more and more camera
manufacturers are incorporating audio in their devices.CCTV microphone for DVR This method would have the audio come along the same cable as the video
signal.

Second would be an external mic and powered speaker coming directly from the DVR unit. This takes a few more pieces to make it
work. Cabling, microphones(one for you, one for the visitor), and speakers(again, one for you and one for the visitor).
This has been the common solution for years.

1TB - 6TB Extra Hard Drives

Install and Maximize
Hard Drive Included?

An interesting thing happens in the world of home security. Sometimes when you purchase a DVR, or a complete surveillance system, it may...or may not...come with a hard drive. Why do this? Well the main reason is for service. The hard drive is the hardest working part of a DVR so it will most likely fail before other things do. So this reduces warranty costs, and this brings consumer buying costs down. The other reason would be size and data. You can customize your system by installing a drive the size you need. Not only can you install one drive, many larger DVR units give the option for two HDD drives at once!. Initialization is done on both drives. The DVR will correctly allocate data to the hard drive that has room to store it. We do have a hard drive page if you need to research to best prices online.

DVR Resolutions

Can it Use My Old Cameras?

DVR resolution is a factor determined by the individual recording unit. Each DVR can accept either a specific format, or it will handle a few different ones. The low side of the scale is 420TVL. This is about the same as a 1/2 megapixel resolution. The high end is 1080P and 1080N full HD. If you need a replacement DVR or NVR you have the option to purchase after-market cameras as long as the resolution format is compatible. A complete security system package will come with the correct cameras to seamlessly integrate together.
