Linear LLC, a leader in residential and commercial access control, health and wellness, home automation and security solutions, announced recently that it has begun shipping the QUADStor™ NVR 400 Series Network Video Recorders, the cornerstone of Linear's IP video ecosystem. The embedded-browser based NVRs are simple to install, cost-effective to manage and allow users to integrate, capture, and store video data, and then retrieve and view the video images remotely with the QUADView™ NVR mobile app or locally with a connected display monitor. Built for speed and ease-of-use, this embedded NVR is a cost-effective choice for your video surveillance and security needs.
A consistent user interface between the native on-screen display from the NVR output and remote browser make the QUADStor NVR 400's setup and management simple and stress-free. Available with 2 to 8 terabytes of storage and support for up to 16 cameras, the NVR boasts easy-to-upgrade Audio/Video (AV) class Hard Disk Drives (HDD).
Streamlined for efficiency, QUADStor NVRs can be assigned a unique domain name (DDNS) to replace the IP address for easier mapping, with support for 2-, 3- and 5-megapixel IP cameras from Linear. The NVR can be programmed for motion detection or constant recording at different resolutions, and has a full 1080p high-definition display output via HDMI or VGA. QUADStor NVRs conveniently support two independent networks, allowing IP cameras to be isolated on their own network to reduce bandwidth demands on the corporate LAN.
"Surveillance is essential to practically every security installation, so we wanted to make video integration and management as simple as possible," said Duane Paulson, senior vice president of product and market development. "Dealers will appreciate how easy the NVR 400 Series is to install and configure, and once setup, customers can manage cameras and recorded video immediately, with virtually no learning curve."
The QUADView NVR app provides remote access to any Linear IP camera connected to QUADStor units. Users can view up to four cameras simultaneously and watch live video and recorded events from either an H.264 or MJPEG video stream. The QUADView app can be downloaded for free from the Apple®App StoreSM and Google Play™ store and also features: low-res or high-res video streaming (bandwidth- and processor-dependent), video playback control capability, PTZ camera controls (preset, cruise), plus still image and video clip downloading.
Paulson continued, "Beyond simplicity, QUADStor offers low total-cost-of-ownership, flexible integration options and streamlined maintenance, plus it's future-facing with easy upgrade capabilities."
