XVR Range - Multi format Solution

Dahua's XVR range encorporates support for the following cameras:   CVI,  TVI, AHD, CVBS (composite) and IP.  This gives extremely good flexibility in what is now a busy multiformated industry.  This allows it to work with open AHD cameras, Dahua's CVI cameras, Hikvisions TVI cameras as well as older analogue cameras and new IP cameras.

This recorder can record up to 32 channels of analogue formats and up to 16 IP channels supporting up to 5MP IP cameras.


Dual HDMI ports allow a main out and a fully programmable spot out.  

Dual RJ45 1G Network Ports

Dual RJ45 network ports allow IP cameras to be added via a subnet.   The second port can then be used as just an uplink to the customers main network.

P2P Support

No more time consuming port forwarding for mobile phone access. Simply scan the included QR code into the Dahua mobile phone app for full remote access without port forwarding.    Full DDNS support is still included and P2P has to be enabled to work.

Web Interface
The easy to use web interface is fast and intuitive.    Features likes video settings, SD card record and playback control, network information, motion detection as well as hundreds of other settings can all be done from here.

Mobile Phone Support
All Dahua cameras and NVRs feature fully featured mobile apps.   These are supported for iPhone and Android.   Features include live view, playback, alarm monitoring, status monitoring, full remote setup and push alerts.  Push alerts send notifications straight to your phone regarding motion detect or other alarms.
