The DNR-322L mydlink Network Video Recorder from D-Link is designed to create a complete monitoring system for your home or small business. It is a standalone storage device that can record videos simultaneously from up to 9 network cameras (sold separately) without requiring users to turn on their PC. This device not only supports mydlink cameras but can be used to record footage from a range of D Link business cameras (sold separately). It is simple to manage and enables you to change the network settings to access the NVR (Network Video Recorder) from the Internet. You can set up this NVR by running the included installation CD, assigning your NVR to your mydlink account, or if you are a first time user, set one up. It will even automatically discover your D-Link cameras in your network for you.
The mydlink NVR is a suitable solution for small businesses or people that travel and need to leave their properties unattended for long periods of time.
The DNR-322L NVR supports the latest hard drive technology with room to add up to 6 terabytes of storage, enough for months of video recording. Using industry standard video compression options, the DNR-322LNVR packs in even more video for later retrieval or exporting. Advanced motion detection, email alerts, video backup and two-way audio provide good functionality. With 2 bays for standard, hard drives (sold separately), this NVR lets you choose the recording capacity that best suits your needs. For example, 2 4TB hard drives can store high-quality audio and video from 4 DCS-942L cameras for up to 6 weeks. This NVR can be set up to record only during certain periods of time such as night times or during the weekends, or based on motion detection, so the recording capacity can be extended much longer.
With the mydlink NVR, you have a variety of options for viewing and organizing on-screen camera footage. If multiple cameras have been set up in a property, it allows you to simply drag and drop videos from selected cameras to the viewing area. It clearly displays camera names and recording statuses for easy reference. It enables you to control PTZ (Pan/Tilt/Zoom) functions from within the interface or by directly clicking on the video. With the mydlink NVR, user accounts can be set up to limit access, or assign different access privileges for users by specifying the cameras they are allowed to access. For added security so as to protect business premises, this NVR enables recorded footage to be backed up to external storage on a different location. This NVR also includes the option to protect data using a RAID 1 configuration, which duplicates recorded video onto 2 separate hard drives to keep your videos safe, even if one of the hard drives fails.
The mydlink NVR interface allows for straightforward configuration including compression, resolution, and frame rate for all connected cameras. Once the cameras have been set up, it allows recordings to be made continuously, or according to a user-defined schedule. It also provides event recording based on specific triggers such as when motion is detected.
The mydlink NVR is part of D-Link GreenTM, D-Link's programme for providing eco-friendly alternatives without compromising performance. If the hard drives are not used in a configurable period of time, or data is not being transmitted, this NVR will enter stand-by mode to save power. Also, its silent fan will adapt its speed depending on the hard drives' temperature.
Note: An internal 3.5" SATA 2.0 drive is required to store or share files and must be formatted before use. RAID 0 and RAID 1 require the use of two (2) SATA drives. To avoid drive incompatibility in RAID 0 or RAID 1 operation, use SATA drives from the same manufacturer. Formatted drive capacity for RAID 1 operation is dependent on the drive capacity of the lower-sized drive. May not work with older generation SATA drives. For a list of SATA drives that have been tested to work with the DNR-322L visit your D-Link office website.

- Recording is stored in your own HDD for high privacy and not in the online cloud
Complete Network Functionality
- Utilizes ADSL services. It can connect to the Internet via an ADSL modem over Ethernet
- Supports dynamic DNS (Domain Name System), which is a solution for users without a fixed IP address to connect to the NVR from the Internet using an easy-to-remember domain name
- Can update the system clock from an Internet server using the NTP (Network Time Protocol) to ensure that the time recording is always accurate
- Can act as a DHCP server for easy deployment when the network environment is very simple and there is no existing DHCP server
Fully Functional Recording
- A highly configurable scheduling system allows for continuous recording or recording during specifically allotted time frames once cameras have been set up
- Each camera can be set to record independently at preset intervals
- Provides event recording based on specific triggers
- Can be configured to overwrite the oldest data automatically when hard disk space runs out, allowing for continuous and uninterrupted recording
- Users can specify the number of days the recording should be kept (within the limits of the hard disk capacity). For example, if the NVR has the capacity to store 7 days of recording, using the overwrite option, the NVR will record on the 8th day and delete the 1st day
- Provides the option to stop recording when the hard disk is full
- Notification can be sent via e-mail or to an external device such as an audible alarm or LED display, when the disk reaches its capacity
Comprehensive Data and Hardware Security
- RAID 1 duplicates the recordings database onto two separate drives
- In the event of a hard disk failure, data integrity is maintained on the secondary hard disk
