The Night Owl Poseidon-45 Video Security Kitcomes with an 8-channel DVR, 4 indoor/outdoor night vision cameras, and the required power supplies and connecting cables.

The DVR allows you to instantly view videos from miles away using an internet-enabled PC, turning your computer into a surveillance hub. You can also view captured footage while on-the-go using select 3G/4G iPhone, Android, and Blackberry models. The triplex function allows you to view and playback videos even as the DVR continues to record, keeping the surveillance area fully secure. All videos are recorded in H.264 format at D1 resolution and come with a time and date stamp for official use. The provided 500 GB hard drive offers ample space for reliable recording of the surveillance area.

In case of any movement in the vicinity under surveillance, the motion detection sensor triggers an alarm and instantly sends out an email notification to your inbox. You can also keep a track of high-risk areas during peak hours by switching to the DVR's time-scheduled recording mode. This will allow you to record for a specific period instead of continuously recording unwanted footage, thus saving space on your hard drive. Once the DVR's maximum storage capacity is reached, you can opt to overwrite the oldest files with recent ones.

Critical surveillance footage can be transferred on a flash drive or USB hard disk for later use. For enhanced security, the DVR has a password protection feature that prevents unauthorized users from operating the system or viewing crucial data.

With a ¼" image sensor, each night vision camera delivers clear images at a resolution up to 400 TVL. Eleven LEDs help the camera capture footage at a distance up to 30' (9 m), making it suitable for round-the clock surveillance.
