The Lorex 8-Channel Eco Blackbox Wireless Security System is designed to suit your home and business surveillance needs. It consists of an 8-channel DVR with a pre-installed 500GB hard drive, 4 digital indoor/outdoor cameras, and 2 wireless receivers.

The 8-channel DVR offers a recording resolution of up to 704 x 480, and uses H.264 video compression to optimize storage. The included 500GB hard drive provides ample space for wireless recording and storing videos on board. Pentaplex operation enables simultaneous viewing, recording, playback, backup, & remote controlling of the system. Additionally, DDNS (Dynamic Domain Name Service) provides advanced remote connectivity at all times, enabling you to view real-time footage on your PC, Mac, smartphones, and tablets.

The 4 wireless cameras are designed to capture clear footage in real-time at a resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA). The 1/4” CMOS color sensor, coupled with a 3.6mm lens with 55° viewing angle, enables each camera to monitor a wide area while delivering sharp and detailed imagery. As night falls, the 24 IR LEDs on each camera illuminate the surveillance area for capturing clear images in pitch dark conditions. They provide a recording range of up to 90’ in outdoor locations with 0 Lux illumination, and 135’ under ambient lighting in indoor locations. Furthermore, the IP66-rated weatherproof housing makes the cameras suitable for both indoor and outdoor installations.

Note: BlackBox is used solely as a marketing term and does not imply that the product can survive fire or extreme conditions.
