The 4K 8 Channel NVR with built-in 8 Power over Ethernet ports is a reliable easy-setup solution that brings out the best in Camius IP cameras. The 4K UHD output and Gigabit WAN port deliver unmatched quality and bandwidth, while the Camius View App and advanced VMS software give you the ability to live view, playback, and control your PoE NVR system remotely and securely.
High Bandwidth of Camius 8 Channel NVR
More bandwidth for transmission and recording means higher quality. Camius offers some of the highest levels of bitrate in an 8 channel NVR. The available bandwidth is 128Mbps! Continuous recording for security cameras from Camius can utilize up to 128Mbps recording bandwidth on the Network Video Recorder to provide each channel with enough bandwidth to stream, record, process, and analyze in 4K quality.
PoE NVR 8 Channel
Camius 8 Channel NVR works best with PoE IP cameras by Camius. Camius 8 Channel NVR system is optimized for Camius PoE IP cameras. A single Ethernet cable is used to deliver power, Video, and Audio streams, Infrared, in addition to bidirectional commands and alerts. Using Power Over Ethernet with IP cameras and NVRs helps centralize power for the entire security system making it more reliable. Cable distance can be up to 300ft, and cable type can be CAT5 and up.
Video compression is an important factor when choosing a security system, it determines video clarity, hard disk usage, and network bandwidth. Camius security systems support H.265 which is considered the best video compression standard to optimize all three areas. The video quality of an H.265 stream is higher than that of an H.264 with the same settings. Using H.265 reduces the file size as well which means less bandwidth is required to transfer a higher quality stream. The reduced file size means a longer recording duration on the hard disk. In addition, you can control audio compression as well (applicable to Camius IP cameras with audio capabilities).
Compatible IP Security Cameras
- Camius IP cameras up to 8-Megapixels
- Other manufacturers IP cameras’ functionality may be limited
- For plug-n-play installation, Camius PoE 8 Channel NVR must be installed with only Camius PoE IP cameras
Motion, Sound detection
Video Motion Detection is used to save valuable time while searching for an event or incident in playback. It allows users to set detection areas under setup for IP cameras, NVR recorders; a schedule is available for detection hours and days. Video motion detection triggers recording and other actions on your Camius 8 Channel NVR. You can set motion recording as the only recording method to save on disk space or activate motion recording along with normal 24/7 recording to record everything while having easy access to video footage triggered by motion. Sound Detection is triggered when a sudden loud noise occurs near the camera, it alerts the user and records in Intelligent mode.
You can control Passive Infrared or PIR detection and alerts triggered by it such as turning on a buzzer, commencing recording, post recording, display a message, send an email, upload a picture or video to an FTP folder or a cloud (Dropbox or Google Drive). You can select hours and days of the week for the PIR sensor to work in the PIR schedule section; you can also select areas where PIR motion should trigger an alarm. Users have the option to enable push notifications for PIR triggering on their smartphones.
Camius smart security camera systems offer Intelligent Detection using A.I. analysis. This goes beyond video motion detection as it allows the user to create zones for detecting patterns of movement, location, etc. Intelligent Detection will trigger Push notifications in addition to video recording in a special color and tag. Intelligent Detection includes Perimeter Intrusion, Line Crossing, Stationary Object, Cross Counting, Human Detection & Vehicle, Face Detection.
Time-Lapse recording is a Camius PoE NVR 8 Channel system features that stores an image every set duration that when combined into a video file will produce a Time-Lapse video. Time-Lapse can be used for various purposes like construction, nature, or seasonal change. This feature is control using capture images and capture schedule.
Security camera alerts on a smartphone can be customized on the Camius View app. Types of notifications include motion detection, hard disk status, Intelligent detection. Schedules are available for detection and delivery on the NVR, while the Push Notification section on the Camius View app allows the user to enable or disable specific alerts.
Camius PoE NVR 8 Channel fits 1 internal SATA hard drive up to 10 Terabyte capacity. Camius NVRs offer a dedicated section with details about the health of installed hard drives. The process is named S.M.A.R.T., which is short for Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology. The advantage of this technology running in the background and on-demand is that the user can stay up to date on the hard drive’s health. For an additional backup, you can add a NAS to your recorder.
You can upload pictures and video footage to your Dropbox or Google Drive account which can be triggered by a selected detection event.
Live View & Playback
Camius 8 Channel NVR is capable of displaying and recording of ultra HD 4K video at 45fps, (frames per second), 4MP with 90 fps and full 1080p at 180fps. You can also view live IP cameras in 1/4/6/9 display split and select auto sequence mode.
Free NVR software
Camius security systems go beyond the HDMI monitor and smartphone app. The free NVR software can turn any desktop, laptop, PC, or Mac into a 24/7 surveillance station. Users can monitor live video and audio streams in addition to playback and manage IP cameras with access to device settings. This software is great for multiple installations as it can combine cameras connected to a Camius NVR in addition to individual Camius cameras on one screen. The software can display Up to 128 cameras on the same screen and manage multiple devices from different locations.
