A customer recently wrote us wanting to know the following:
I was writing about the iDVR-E16 Stand Alone H.264 DVR, I am wondering if it is possible to map a network drive from the device and on alert, set off an upload of the last 5 minutes of video? I am basically wanting to make sure I have a way to still access the data if someone steals the DVR in a home invasion.
CCTV Camera Pros response:
Thank You for contacting CCTV Camera Pros. That is a great question. Unfortunately, you can not map a network drive using the iDVR, however there are some options to secure your data.
1) You can lock the DVR in a DVR lockbox so that it is secure. The DVR lockbox is like a safe. You can see this option here:
2) Instead of using the iDVR, if you go with a PC based DVR like these from NUUO, you can map a network drive:
