We have a 16 Channel analog DVR, a monitor and several indoor CCTV cameras installed. We would like to add a few HD quality Megapixel cameras for capturing long distance details at our outdoor locations.
I understand that some IP cameras have analog output and SD storage. So, can we simply connect the analog output to the DVR via coax/BNC and get something like 720×480? We'd like to then rely on the camera's SD card to record about 5 seconds of HD video @ 5 FPS when the camera senses motion.
Can any of these camera be configured to record on the SD as a loop (continuously write over the oldest data)?
Do these IP cameras have to be connected to a pc at any time for this to work?
Why? We don't need megapixel quality at our DVR/monitor but would like to capture further details of vehicles/people… as they enter and leave gates… So if we discover a problem we can pull the SD card and have more details.
The ideal camera would also be vandal resistant, day/night, that could use a zoom lens to at least 40mm.
Thank you for posting your questions. The following Zavio IP cameras support high definition video surveillance at 1080p resolution (1920 x 1080) and have internal micro SD card recording and an analog RCA video output that can feed a CCTV DVR. I just tested this with our iDVR surveillance recorder to make sure the output worked properly.
The Zavio F7210 as you can see is a box style HD camera that can be enclosed in a weathproof and vandal proof housing if you intend on using it outdoors. It comes with a 3-8mm vari-focal lens, but that can be replaced with a larger lens if you require it.
Both of these IP cameras have the same firmware which supports both continuous and motion detection recording to a local micro SD card. All Zavio cameras also include a 32 channel NVR software license that enables you to use a Windows PC as your recorder. However neither camera requires a PC to be continuously running to record to the SD card. You would just need a PC for the initial configuration and to access from time to time as you need to pull video from the SD card.
Please let us know if you have additional questions. We are the US distributor for Zavio and directly provide all of the support and warranty service for the products that we supply.
