Samsung Standalone DVR units like the SHR-2042 have been in our inventory for well over a year and in that time we have learned a lot about their place in the complicated world of CCTV Camera Security.
After much discussion with customers, vendors and our Samsung Rep we now have a very good understanding of how the Samsung Standalone DVR units fit into our product mix and how they can be of benefit to our customer base.
Coming from a PC/IT background there was a time when not a one of us had given a second thought to a DVR solution that was not PC based. But perhaps the most important thing we have learned in the last year is that not everyone thinks like we do. There are plenty of very intelligent people out there that have made a success of their business with out turning into a PDA dependant techno junkie. These people however unlike us still have a need for security. Many of them simply want a dependable and basic solution.
If that describes you then a Samsung Standalone DVR is worth your consideration. Samsung DVR’s are well respected as an upper tier product and have a two year warranty from Samsung with a 120 day advance replacement plan.
In general the biggest benefit of a Samsung DVR is they are easier to operate and have fewer potential hardware and software liabilities than their PC based rivals.
Specifically the benefits of the Samsung Standalone DVR would be the elimination of the older tape based multiplexer CCTV technology. The Samsung DVR is the simplest way to save your video in a digital format and bring your system up to date with full internet access.
With a Samsung DVR installed gone is the need to change tapes, gone is the need to stop recording if you want to play back a video clip, gone is the low resolution video, and gone is the need to be onsite and in front of the unit to have full access to its features.
To be fair and balanced the PC based systems in the right hands can definitely be a strong asset and provide a very feature rich solution. But again we have learned not everyone loves the PC like we do.
We now often tell people that if they are a PC hobbyist, have in IT staff that requested a PC based DVR, or have a very complex security need, then a PC based DVR system is most likely a good choice. If not then consider the Samssung DVR,
So no matter how big or small your security need rest assured we understand the place for both the Standalone DVR and its PC based competitor and we are here to help you come to the right DVR decision for your project.
