Hikvision's HiWatch range of CCTV DVRs are designed from the ground up for simple home security, combining many of the adjustable features from their professional recorders with a compact size and a wallet-friendly price tag. This 8 channel recorder records high definition video and high-quality audio, with enough inputs to secure a large residential property.

The recorder's 4-in-1 technology is compatible with our HD-TVI (aka "Turbo HD") CCTV cameras, as well as AHD, CVI and CVBS video formats. Simply put, this means that it can record footage from pretty much anything that uses a coaxial cable or BNC connector. At can record footage from each camera at up to 1080 lite resolution, or can use a long transmission mode, which drops recording down to 720p in exchange for the ability to use cables up to 1200m in length. Furthermore, the recorder features two IP inputs to allow you to add IP cameras to the recorder.

The DVR can use H.264+ encoding with compatible cameras, helping to extend recording times and save space. You can easily view your cameras on a local TV or monitor using VGA or HDMI outputs. Alternatively, connect it to your internet router to allow remote access. Once configured, this lets you view live or recorded footage from anywhere via a PC, mobile or tablet.
