The Lorex LH3381001 Edge2 8-Channel Standalone Security DVR (1 TB) is a Linux-based surveillance solution for users looking for professional performance in a compact package. This DVR supports recording of video feeds on all 8 channels at resolutions up to 352 x 240 (NTSC).

Pentaplex operation in this DVR ensures smooth and efficient operation even while simultaneously dealing with live viewing, recording, playback viewing, backup, and remote access functions.

Multiple recording modes like motion detection, schedule, continuous, and manual recording allow you to easily configure your security system to record based on your requirements. Triple Touch technology lets you use a touch-screen monitor, front panel light touch buttons, or your smartphone or tablet to navigate through the DVR's versatile functionality. Additionally, built-in PTZ camera protocols allow easy control over your camera network.

The Swipe-to-Switch features lets you monitor and quickly switch between live feeds from the various cameras in circulation. You can quickly locate a specific video clip with multi-channel second by second preview using the intuitive search option. Plus, the DVR's covert camera functionality lets you prevent regular users from watching feeds from cameras positioned in sensitive areas.

The Lorex Easy Connect Internet Set-Up Wizard helps you to effortlessly configure your DVR for connection to a network. Thanks to free DDNS support, setting up a remote connection is quick and easy. You can even monitor your premises or control the DVR when you’re away via your iPhone, BlackBerry, or any other 3G smartphone. In addition, the DVR can be set up to send instant email alerts with snapshot attachments and web links to avoid conditions that could result in system down time.

For backup or transfer, videos can be easily exported to a flash memory device connected to the DVR’s USB port. You can view video feeds remotely or even access the DVR functions using a compatible web browser on your Windows PC.

        Comments about Lorex LH3381001 Edge2 8-Channel Standalone Security DVR (1 TB):

        This is the second DVR of this model I've purchased, the first being the 16 channel. I've had nothing but good feedback from the client & I couldn't have asked for an easier to manage DVR. Lorex makes the DDNS stupid proof, and both the phone app & the pc software work as advertised. The web interface is a bit flakey, with IE anyway - you've got to hold your tounge just the right way, (refer to the manual for this part) but once it's working it looks just like the pc software ?!? So, it's only useful if your on the road & using a public or borrowed pc.

            I have four wireless cameras attached and they work great. The system monitors each camera and controls their function flawlessly. The picture is great and have had no problems with this equipment. I plugged it in setup the options and done. It has exceeded my expectations.

                I have done a lot of research on security DVRs in thd few months with the object of replacing the Gadspot DVR I currently own. The issues that prompted the replacement were (1) inability to get remote access (2) poor resolution and (3 ) awkward programming. The new Edge2 promised to do a better job on all these issue and in fact has.

                Here are a few coronets.
                1. Setup went ok though not quite as easy as advertised. Read the info on Passwords carefully -- it tripped me up several times. Usernames are not as you would expect but are the numbers 1, 2 , 3 etc. And they are different for intranet vs Internet access.

                2. If you keep looking at the Lorex website and wonder when they are going to release the Edge2, stop waiting and go to B&H -- they are selling it.
