The Sentinel 8-Channel 500GB HDD DVR Kit from Defender is designed as a basic surveillance system with capability to expand if you need it to. It comes with an 8-channel DVR and four indoor/outdoor day/night cameras. The DVR has a 500GB hard drive installed, but you can upgrade it later to as much as 1TB. This is a full pentaplex-operational system that allows you to simultaneously live-view, playback, and remotely access the DVR without having to stop recording. Designed to accommodate today's hi-res analog cameras, it records in up to D1 resolution at 30fps per channel. To conserve memory and bandwidth for remote access, it uses H.264 video and G.711 audio compressions, with dual-stream capabilities.

Defender's "1 Step Remote Viewing" software comes in both Windows and Mac versions, and lets you quickly and easily set up the DVR for remote access from computers. An app for Android/iOS/Windows Mobile/Symbian OS mobile devices gives you the added ability for accessing the DVR from smartphones and tablets. With the system networked, you can also remotely change settings, control optional PTZ cameras, and save files to a remote location for additional security and file backup.

The four cameras are rated for outdoor use with IP65 rated housings for weather and dustproof performance. They utilize 1/3" color CMOS image sensors to capture footage with 600TVL resolution. 36 IR LEDs and an automatic IR cut filter provide a night vision range of up to 100 feet for around the clock surveillance. Each camera comes with 65 feet of pre-terminated video/power cable to help with installation, and a 4-to-1 power splitter and adapter that allows all four cameras to be powered from a single 110VAC outlet.

            Comments about Defender Sentinel 8-Channel 500GB HDD DVR Kit with Four Outdoor Bullet Cameras:

            Its a solid system except the camera mounting system. You have to run the wire through the mounting surface, you can't have the wire running externally. Other then that its worth buying.

                        While I didn't care for installing the wires, it was the trade off I chose. For the price, this system is very good. All things said, the installation is simple and the system worked as expected. I still have to conquer the software, but getting it up and recording wasn't bad at all.
