What is a Networked Video Recorder (NVR)?

Your NVR is the brain of your security system. It receives, processes, and stores the digital footage from your digital or IP cameras.

NVRs are servers that publish a webpage where you can view your cameras. They are embedded devices that you can connect to with desktop or mobile applications and then stream footage or watch recordings. They are analytics devices that check for someone or something crossing a line, entering or dwelling in an area. They are appliances that can display cameras on a monitor or multiple monitors.

NVRs are not DVRs

Often NVRs are mistakenly called DVRs, but they are different. A DVR is designed to process footage from analog cameras transmitting not yet digitized footage over outdated BNC cabling. Examples of analog camera technologies include AHD, CVI, TVI, and SDI. An NVR receives footage from digital or IP cameras transmitting data over an ethernet cable (Cat5, Cat6, or even Cat7). Analog systems are outdated and we do not recommend them anymore.

How SCW Admiral and Imperial NVRs is more cyber secure than putting cameras on a network

Admiral and Imperial NVRs create Isolated Network within a Network

The more devices you have on a network the more likely they are to be hacked. Security cameras are a popular target for dangerous actors, like foreign governments or professional criminal enterprises, to use the processors inside millions of security cameras to conduct cyber attacks on critical USA infrastructure, like power plants and internet service providers. The US Government even considers two of the largest companies in the surveillance industry to be Cyber security threats, themselves.

The cameras plugged into the Admiral line NVR's POE ports directly or plugged into the Imperial Line NVRs Lan2 Network directly are not visible or accessible on your computer network. They run on an isolated network. The only way to access these cameras is to plug a computer into those POE ports or hack into the NVR.

This has several advantages:

1. Faster Networks. Unlike traditional NVRs, when plugged into the NVR’s isolated network, the camera's video feeds do not slow down your main computer network.

2. Isolated Cameras. Since they are on both a physically separated network and a subnet, your cameras are not visible on your computer network or to outsiders. You can connect to the NVR remotely and log in and use the NVR as a bridge to watch the cameras, but neither you nor a hacker can log into the cameras themselves, without either logging into the NVR or being physically present to plug into the NVR and possessing knowledge about your NVR's specific camera subnet mask. (You can customize this camera's subnet if you want). 99% of all security camera IoT hacks are through the cameras, not the NVR.

3. Less maintenance. Our new 2018 line has one-click firmware updates straight from the NVR/Camera, meaning, you don't even have to search for, find, or download the footage on a computer. You just click a button when using the device and update the firmware automatically. So, the update process is not difficult, to begin with. In addition, you don't have to worry about updating the cameras for cybersecurity reasons, since the NVR is the only device that can be accessed remotely. It is much easier to keep one device up to date than dozens or hundreds.
