Here is a recommendation that CCTV Camera Pros recently provided to a customer that wanted to upgrade a QSEE security camera DVR purchased from Costco.
The customer contacted me with the following email.
I have a QSee security camera system model QT5716 that I bought at Costco some time back. I think the DVR is failing and have never been happy with the user interface. The cameras that were included with the system are ok for my purposes and would be difficult to change out. So, I would like to be able to buy a new DVR that would be compatible with the existing QSEE cameras. I would like to avoid an other Q-See DVR. Any suggestions?
This is the recommendation that I made to the customer.
The QSEE QT5716 is an analog CCTV DVR. Our hybrid iDVR-PRO DVRs work with analog cameras, as well as HD over coax security cameras. This makes them a great replacement for analog DVRs.
Your existing cameras will work on all channels of the DVR, but you can also switch to HD cameras when you are ready (on any and all channels). All of the BNC inputs of the DVR support both analog cameras and HD-over-Coax cameras.
This is the configuration screen on the DVR that allows you to select the camera type. The latest model iDVR-PRO automatically detects the camera type.
Here is a link to some HD-over-Coax cameras for future reference (when you are ready to upgrade cameras).
Here is a video of the user interface of the DVR. It is very easy to use.
