Honeywell adds entry level H.264 digital video recorders to its Performance range

Product Profile

The HREP Series from Honeywell is a low-cost selection of embedded digital video recorders (DVRs), part of its Performance range. Each HREP is economically priced to reduce the cost of the customer's initial outlay. The entry level DVRs offer clear, crisp video using H.264 video compression and a rich feature set, in addition to instant remote access functionality via any web browser. The low cost of the HREP DVR makes it ideal for residential surveillance applications as well as the traditional lower-end commercial deployments that require an entry level solution.

Simple to install and set up, via the user-friendly USB mouse or IR remote control, the HREP DVR requires minimal training and is designed to minimise time spent on site by the installer, leaving them time to complete a higher number of customer calls and maximise revenue. However, if expert advice is required, the HREP is also supported by Honeywell's technical support team.

Offering browser-based access and removing the need for any desktop software, the HREP DVR provides the end user with the peace of mind associated with being able to quickly check his/her business or residential premises from a distance using almost any PC connected to the internet. This web-based approach provides users with access to the vast majority of the functions available on-premise such as ‘live view', ‘search' or ‘burn evidence video clip' when they are offsite with access to the internet.

The product is also equipped with a powerful search engine and quick playback tool to enable end users under pressure to find video clips quickly, rapidly and reliably. In addition, HREP's ability to fast-burn the necessary files to a low cost CD and/or USB sticks means an end user can rapidly transfer all of the relevant information to the police.

"The fact that our new HREP DVR is so competitively priced means it can convincingly rival the host of lower cost alternatives that have appeared on the market in recent years," comments Jeremy Kimber, EMEA commercial marketing leader at Honeywell Security Group. "In addition to the cost benefits, we believe it offers installers new business opportunities, as well as providing customers with the benefits that web-based remote access delivers."
