Product Overview

This 8 channel pentaplex SLD255 DVR from Security Labs incorporates the latest dual stream H.264 technology, and records up to four times more video on the same size hard drive as previous models. Dual stream H.264 video codec processing records the highest quality video possible to the hard drive and adjusts image compression to optimize the DVR's internet transmission speed. Smartphone monitoring, e-mail with images, SMS text messaging with an image, or standard text only alarm notification messages provide maximum access and connectivity while you are on the move. The included Central Monitoring Station (CMS) Software gives you the ability to monitor up to 64 cameras on one PC screen, with video streaming from multiple DVRs from the Security Labs 250 series, and 440 series systems. Video motion detection, and all 8 alarm terminals can be set to record activity to the hard drive, log the event in a menu list, and send an e-mail with an attached image. Motorized Pan/Tilt/Zoom (PTZ) cameras, such as the SLC-170C or SLC-171C can be controlled with the mouse, IR remote, PC, or via free mobile phone apps. Timed, motion detection, and "NO" recording can be scheduled for any hour of any day for each camera, giving you total control over what to record. Back up or copy video files quickly to a flash drive via a USB 2.0 port, or to a PC via the internet.

8-Channel 500 GB Hard Drive DVR with Remote Viewing-DISCONTINUED is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 4.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product is exactly what we needed. This 8-channel DVR for our security cameras works very well. It is a bit complicated, but take it slow and follow the directions and you will do just fine. We had a pet dog dig out from under a fence and we were able to go back and see exactly when he made his exit and which direction he went. I highly recommend this piece of equipment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to set up. Quiet running. The unit replaced an older 4-channel DVR that had been in service for four years. Swapping the unit and setting up the basic functions was simple.The unit is MUCH quieter than the older model. Continuous recording is the default and some trial and error was required to understand how to have the DVR record on alarm only. Setting up remote viewing via the Internet was not difficult, though the instructions may not apply to every situation, depending on the router used. The remote viewing software works well (both standalone and browser-based versions) though not all set-up functions can be accessed remotely (such as setting the time). A few minor complaints: I have not found a way to move the date/time stamp on recordings from the top to the bottom. At the top it often obscures important details in the picture, such as faces. It can be turned off but not repositioned. The playback speed controls do not affect the video until it has been downloaded into the remote viewing computer, which may take a long time if hour-long segments are used for continuous recording. It's not a problem with alarm triggered recordings.
