Is it possible to trigger the recording process of a surveillance DVR to start automatically when an alarm door contact sensor is opened?
I have read some instruction about the DVR they can be trigger the recording process after the alarm is off. Why they don’t do the trigger recording just after the alarm is on? (suppose the door contact sensor is on).
I am appreciate if you can get some chance to answer this question please.

Thank You for your question. Our Viewtron DVRs have a panel of alarm inputs on the the back. You can connect alarm door contacts to these inputs to trigger the DVR to start recording.
Please take a look at the instructions here.
