This 8 Camera 4MP Admiral Series Camera System is Customizable:

You can choose if you want 4MP bullet cameras or 4MP dome cameras or half and half. If you don't know what to pick, please see our Bullet vs Dome cameras guide.

When you add this system to the cart, it will break up into individual cameras and recorder, so that you can further customize it, if you so choose. Please see our guide on how to create a custom security camera system if you want to sub one of the cameras in this package out for a specialty camera, like a PTZ or long range HD surveillance camera.

You can also choose your hard drive size when you add it to the cart. For this eight channel 4MP Admiral Series system, a 2TB hard drive will usually last around 9 days on continuous H.265 recording and 4-8x longer (5 to 10 weeks) when recording on motion. If you want a custom recording length, you can use our security camera storage calculator to determine how large of a hard drive you would need.

Camera Options

Although you can substitute any Admiral line SCW cameras and have them work with this system, we have included our two most popular cameras in this customizable system bundle: The Deputy 4.0 and The Warrior 4.0. The main difference between the two cameras that come in this system bundle are the viewing angle and how far you can ID a face. Both of the cameras in this system record at 4MP (4 Million Pixels per frame - about twice the quality of your 1080P HD TV) and both can be mounting indoors or outdoors, on the wall or on the ceiling/overhang.

The Warrior is our most popular camera model. It is tied with the Deputy in terms of how easy it is to install and position, since neither camera requires you to remove any part of the camera to screw it into the wall/ceiling/soffit. This makes it ideal for outdoor use as you don't have a tendency to trap moisture in the lens, as is common with dome cameras, where you have to remove the outer glass dome to mount them. The 83 degree lens is great balance between covering a large area and identifying faces and license plates. Although you can use this camera inside or out, the most common use of the Warrior models (the camera comes in 2MP, 4MP, or 8MP) is to cover the side of buildings or large sections of yards.

Seeing in shadows: Understanding WDR

The Deputy is our second most popular camera model. It is tied with the Warrior in terms of how easy it is to install and position, since neither camera requires you to remove any part of the camera to screw it into the wall/ceiling/soffit. This makes it ideal for outdoor use as you don't have a tendency to trap moisture in the lens, as is common with dome cameras, where you have to remove the outer glass dome to mount them. The 110 or 118 degree lens is best used to cover an entire room at once (by installing it in a corner) or to cover a wide area of a smaller yard, as wider lenses always decrease how far away you can identify a person of license plate. Although you can use this camera inside or out, the most common uses of the Deputy models (the camera comes in 2MP, 4MP, or 4K variants) are to install the camera in the corner of a room or to cover front doors and porches outdoors. Two Deputies are often installed back to back to make a 220-236 degree view, such as in the middle of a wall. (This two camera solution has less of that dizzying "fisheye" look that is common with 180 degree cameras and is also usually cheaper.)

Both Camera Options in this System Bundle have these Features:

Wide Dynamic Range

Wide Dynamic Range (WDR)

This IP camera has Wide Dynamic Range.

Wide Dynamic Range splits each frame/image into many boxes and it scans for in inaccuracies and adds the right amount exposure to create a balanced and high resolution video shot. Very useful when recording in situations where there can be a large difference in light levels.

Seeing in shadows: Understanding WDR



integrated microphone

Integrated Microphone

This camera has an integrated Microphone. It can pick up a speaking voice about 15 feet from the camera.

By default, the microphone is off when it ships, as different states (and sometimes cities, municipalities, etc) have different legal requirements that you must meet before recording audio. All states must comply with the Federal Wire Tap Act of 1968. Please make sure that you are within your rights regarding your local laws before turning the microphone on.

For more info, please read our primer on the Federal Wire Tap Act of 1968.



micro-sd card

MicroSD Card Slot

This camera supports MicroSD for onboard storage.

MicroSD cards allow for storage on a standalone camera or for backup. Backup footage is a good idea for cameras that are on the network, not plugged in directly to an NVR, especially any cameras operated over wireless links.

SCW recommends high endurance MicroSD cards. MicroSD card is not included. For maximum supported size card, check the specs tab.

MicroSD cards are a less reliable form of storage than NVRs and we do not recommend they be used as a substitute for an NVR.



line crossing event and other recording modes

Event Recording Mode through Video Content Analysis (VCA)

With this camera and an SCW Admiral or Imperial NVR, you can be alerted with intrusion detection or line crossing.

Entering an area

Lingering in an area

Crossing a Line

Covering, damaging, or moving the camera lens

In addition you can search your video footage for these events

*Each feature must be enabled and set up before it can be searched. Not all features can run at once.



weatherproof rating

Weatherproof Housing

This camera has a Weatherproof Housing.

It has been rated at IP67 which means that International Electrotechnical Commission’s (IEC) international standard 60529 has rated this camera housing as having full protection from dust and safe from water damage up to powerful jets of water and immersion up to 1 meter up to 30 minutes.

This camera can be safely used outdoors.

Attention: The IP67 rating covers the camera's housing not the cable. Don't ever submerge cables. Please follow our RJ45 Waterproofing Guide for weatherizing your cable connections.



bitrate

Bitrate - 4MP

At 4MP and 30 FPS, while recording at H.265, this camera should use 4Mbps of the NVR's bitrate budget. (With H.264, it should use 8Mbps).

Did you know: The processor in an NVR has both an incoming and outgoing bitrate. Incoming is for recording video and outgoing is for watching it remotely. All of our NVRs have at least 5Mbps per channel in incoming bitrate, and many models can have extra bitrate. Your NVR's spare incoming bitrate is what determines if it can record channels at higher-than-1080P resolution, use specialty panoramic cameras, or many other things (see individual NVR models).



Commercial-Grade Aluminum Molding

Commercial-Grade Aluminum Molding

This camera is commercial-grade and is made of cast aluminum and ceramic molding, instead of the typical plastic molding common in the industry.

This product has passed vibration tests, can withstand an electrical surge up to 6,000 volts, and the casing will prevent intrusion of both dust and water into the internal component space. The screws and mounting hardware are made of stainless steel that has passed SUS410 salt spray anti-corrosion testing. We use automotive-grade LEDs and anti-reflection glass (which means better infrared results). In short, this camera is going to hold up over time.

Motion Detection, Alers, and VCA

Motion Detection, Alerts, and VCA

This Admiral NVR is a motion detection NVR. Feel free to read more about these features by clicking on the link, but here's a quick synopsis:

Alerts and Notifications:

Get email alerts of motion detection alerts or VCA events

Set a schedule to get emails only on the hours of the day you want.

Get Push Notifications to the SCW Go Application for Android and iPhone.

Recording:

Create your own customizable record schedule, including recording based on the day of the week, hours of the day, or even choose not to record for periods of time. Set constant recording during business hours and only motion during closed hours.

Motion Detection You Can Use in Court - If your system is set to record based on motion or VCA events, you can have a 60 second pre-event buffer to grab footage prior to the detection. You can also set the system to record up to 10 minutes after an incident is detected. Motion detection footage does not "time out" and stop recording mid scene. Motion Clips cannot be deleted by employees or other users.

Customizable Motion Detection Recording through VCA events:

VCA features vary by camera model, and can include:

Intrusion Detection - Monitor areas with precision, define zones, set time thresholds, and sensitivity.

Line Crossing - Create virtual lines to detect people or objects crossing doors, entrances, and more.

People Counting - Determine how many people are entering and exiting. Keep and review daily logs.

Audio Detection - Listens for Rises or falls in volume, and sudden loud noises.

Vandal Detection - Get alerts based on tampering detection, defocusing, or any dramatic scene changes.

Analysis:

Smart Search - Quickly review footage by filtering by motion detected in specific areas of the screen, by the face captured, by intrusion into certain areas, or by line crossing

People Counting Statistics - view traffic stats on your NVR or download a CSV file



commercial grade

Commercial Grade Features

This Admiral 8 Channel NVR is part of our commercial grade NVR line. Feel free to read more about these features and what commercial grade means to us, but here's a quick synopsis, as to how it relates to NVRs:

Surveillance Rated Hard Drive - NVRs need Surveillance Rated Hard Drives, as PC drives will overheat and fail.

Store 40% more data with H.265 video compression or switch back to H.264, if you need H.264 third-party integration support.

Passes vibration and surge testing up to 6,0000 volts - SCW NVRs can withstand vibration and surges up to 6,000 volts.

Cyber Security Protections - hackers can't easily see SCW cameras because they run on a special, isolated network created by the NVR. (For more information and a history of some of the larger cyber security attacks that have affected the industry, please see our guide on best practices for preventing IOT hacks.)

4K at 30 FPS Capable - Sufficient Bitrate (processing power) to Record Smooth Video

Easy 1 Click Firmware Update Process - Maintenance made easy.

750 Foot POE Extended Transmission: the old 300 foot limitations are a thing of the past.

No Recording Delay - Even when recording on motion.

ONVIF compliant - this NVR complies with the open industry standard ONVIF for both Profile S (video & audio streaming) and Profile Q POE ports (you can plug-and-play with other Profile Q compliant cameras).



warranty

vga output

VGA Out

This recording device has VGA Out.

You can plug this recording device into any VGA enabled monitor.

Q: Do I have to use a monitor?

A. No, you can use either a monitor or a TV, as explained below. But, you don't actually have to use either. You can manage nearly all your settings remotely via our PC or Mac apps or via the web-interface. Quite a few of our customers hide their recorders or put them in a safe with a cable pass-through, to prevent them from potential theft. This is a perfectly fine solution. You will probably want to plug a monitor in to make your initial setup easier.



hdmi output

HDMI Out

This recording device has HDMI Out.

You can plug this recording device into any HDMI enabled television. This means that you don't need to purchase a monitor unless you want to; you can connect a monitor with either HDMI or VGA cable.

Q: What if I plug in both the HDMI and VGA? Can I watch on two screens?

A.On the Admiral 8 channel NVR HDMI and VGA can be used at the same time. Both HDMI and VGA will feature the same video (mirror).

Please note that although our NVRs can all do 1080P and 4K output, all of them ship with 720P as the default. This is to prevent display issues for people who have older TVs or monitors that don't support 1080P or 4K. To change the output right click and then go to configuration.

UL Listed

UL Listed and FCC Certified

This product is UL Listed and FCC certified

UL is a safety consulting and certification company headquartered in Northbrook, Illinois and provides safety-related certification, validation, testing, inspection, and auditing of SCW products.

The Federal Communications Commission has certified that the electromagnetic interference from the device is under limits approved by the FCC.



Not Sanctioned. On Oct 7th 2019, The US government placed sanctions on major providers in the industry for human rights abuses. Some or all Honeywell, Hikvision, Dahua, Lorex, Swann, LTS, Annke, Alibi, Laview, WBox, Interlogix, Flir, Bosch, ICRealtime, QSee, Panasonic, ADT, Indigo Vision, Montavue, and many more security products are included. SCW's Admiral and Imperial line equipment is not sanctioned.

These sanctions prevent these companies from using US technology or standards in future software or firmware releases and from using US patents in future hardware models. This means that they are going to face a situation where they either don't update firmware for cyber security concerns or lose ONVIF compliance or features when their firmware is updated. For these reasons, we recommend staying away from these brands.

For more information and full documentation, please see our article on NDAA and US Sanctions of Hikvision, Dahua, and their OEM brands.
