You can see under the compatible products section of the product page, they list only a few Swann NVRs. This is because they do not support the ONVIF standard which guarantees inter operability. Or in other words you are stuck with them once you start buying their cameras/NVRs similar to what Apple does with iOS. This is not at all the DIY spirit I subscribe to, so I avoid such brands.

wireless house alarm

Where do I begin?Bizarre design choices such as using a micro USB cable and camera connections instead of regular old network cables and RJ45 ports, and deceptive marketing which then calls this a “network cable” which it is anything but!I have never ever seen a “network cable” that has one RJ 45 end and a USB connector at the other end. Hi Steve, thanks for dropping by!I call these NVR kits the EasyDIY solution to home CCTV but my preferred option is FullDIY where I run everything off one small NAS box, my QNAP TS 253A. I have 4 cameras and the QNAP Surveillance Station takes care of my needs nicely with redundant storage and an OpenVPN server all for under $500. The QNAP Surveillance STation software hasn’t changed much in the last 3 years but its reliable and does the job. You can check out a live demo on this page. It should give you a taste for the software.
