Video Surveillance System Types
Hosted Video Surveillance is an exciting new product that eliminates the need to purchase a digital video recorder to connect your security cameras to.

The clips are securely stored on the internet and you can access them at any time using the internet or a smart phone. You can even receive notifications of activity with video clips attached.
DVR based Systems (Starting at $995, installed)

It stores the video for each secuirty camera based on user preferences including schedule, motion detection, or security system events, like door openings.

These systems can scale efficiently from two cameras up to hundreds.
