  Review by David Carrino on Jan 28, 2014
I think Dahua pretty well has the corner on the market on these large NVRs. I've seen other 128 channel NVR's marketed on other sites, but most of them look like Dahua's with the name changed on the front panel. I've also seen them at a lower price and with a 30 day return option (Security Camera King says this item is non refundable), but to be honest, I don't know if those machines have the exact same specifications or not. Regardless, we have purchased this unit from Security Camera King and are rather pleasantly surprised with its performance. When security is a paramount issue like it is for us at the racetrack, there's always a question of whether to run all your cameras into one unit or break them up into smaller units incase there is a unit failure or a single unit has slow downs, crashes, etc. We use this NVR to record and manage 32 cameras each recording at 1080p resolution and I must say that we have had none of these events occur so far. The NVR is just totally impressive, but then again for the price3 of one of these things and the system itself, you wouldn't (or at least I couldn't) imagine anything less. One of the things that separates Security Camera King from their competition is their customer support. They have one heck of a good technical support team there and when you purchase one of these recorders it's like you've also gotten a free professional technician that comes along with it, seriously. I won't mention all the features and specs because that in itself is a small manual. So, suffice it to say that this unit is serving us well and appears to be a very justifiable purchase.

  Review by Jesus Borrero, Director of Security on Sep 09, 2013
Our casino purchased the Security Camera King 128 Ultimate Series Standalone IP Security Camera NVR several months ago. We assigned one a couple of our technicians to install this unit. I couldn't conceive writing a review until after we have had installed and operated this NVR for at least a few months so I could have a good idea of how it was going to operate. The following review, maybe a bit lengthy perhaps, but for a unit like this there is a lot of information to cover and to ignore some of these things would do an injustice to the NVR and the review.

After answering our detailed questions about this unit and satisfying our curiosity about several aspects of the use of the 128 Channel Ultimate Series Standalone IP Security Camera NVR the Security Camera King sales staff did a good job of answering our questions and convincing us to close the sale. I am not allowed to reveal the name of my employer for security reasons, but of course, we definitely have a need for such a unit. If you are going to make this purchase and ideally use all 128 channels (which I think would be rare) you are making a serious purchase. At Security Camera King's lowest price IP camera, $179, 128 of them plus this unit would cost just under $30,000 and that's not including the cable, monitors, and hardware. So my first suggestion before making this purchase is to make sure you contact Security Camera King and have a list of questions ready that you can ask about the unit so you feel confident about your purchase. Believe me, their staff whether it is their sales staff or their support staff, is great about answering your questions and making sure you are fully satisfied with the answer before moving on to the next one.

There are really only three "down" sides that I can think of when you compare this Network Video Recorder to a Digital Video Recorder. The first is that you need a network and ideally your network can handle a maximum amount of bandwidth. The second is the cost. The third is that if the unit fails, all potential 128 cameras are out of commission for recording (this has NEVER happened to us yet, in fact we have never had to even reboot the NVR). The "up" side is that if you really use a lot of cameras, this unit helps reduce a potential rats nest of wiring in your server room. The resolution is outstanding and this unit can give you one central controller for a very large number of cameras. You get the convenience of network access and sharing. The 3U size case is rack mountable but it is large enough to support up to 16 HOT SWAPPABLE internal hard disk drives (at 3 Tb each for a total internal storage capacity of up to 48 Tb). A week of D1 recording at 30 frames per second for 128 cameras continuously could use as much as 30 Tb of storage so it's good to have the potential. The unit also has an eSATA port for taking on more external drives such as Security Camera King's NAS-4 Unit.

As for all the features, options and technical data there are just too many to mention here, you can check the "Description" and "Specifications" tab and discuss them with Security Camera King. I do have one last suggestion. If you are investing in a unit like this, chances are you have a large network and a lot of important uses to maintain all IP cameras. There is also a good chance that you have a temporary power back up system for your network if the power goes out. I would suggest that for uninterrupted, full time security, you plug this NVR and the power switches into the back up power unit or obtain separate ones for them.

This is a great piece of electronic machinery. After 8 months we have had absolutely no problems with its performance - no crashes, no freezes, and no rebooting needed. With a total of 4 separate Ethernet ports that can be configured to work together, it has absolutely no problem with handling the data rate. So far at this point we are happy with the performance of this unit and wit works very well so we would recommend this purchase to others with a large enterprise based need for such a device.

  Review by Dawkins, Alan (California USA) on Jul 30, 2013
This is the first 128 channel NVR unit I have ever installed. It wasn't as difficult as I thought it would be. In fact the only difficulty was just keeping track of the number of cameras. This is actually a Dahua brand NVR and although I am not real familiar with these very large units, I don't believe there are too many other standalone 128 channel NVR manufacturers. That's probably why the lead time exists when ordering the unit. It took about 3 weeks or so to receive this one.

As far as the functionality of the unit is concerned it is just incredible. The videos are very high resolution IP network megapixel camera recorded, the details are numerous and incredibly fine, the color is spot on, and the unit itself has no problem handling the work load (I don't know how many computer equivalents this is but it must have more than one central processor unit). The unit is installed but I am continuing to provide additions and maintenance to the system so I am still learning all of the different options and features of this NVR. So far, so good. With the power and performance that this unit provides, I can easily rate it at 5 stars.

128 Channel Ultimate Series Standalone IP Security Camera NVR Comprehensive Overview

  Review by Henry Fualkner on May 07, 2013
Although this is a fairly specialized enterprise system NVR, 128 channel systems are not unique. I've seen other 128 channel NVR systems such as Geovision and Dahua but I don't think they can stack up to this SecTec recorder from Security Camera King. I'll get to some of the features in a moment, but my justification for promoting this unit with Security Camera King is two-fold. First, Security Camera King offers this unit at an awesome price; I've seen others of this brand and other manufacturers offered at $2000 or more. Second, I don't think you'll find another support department that provide better service than Security Camera King's and that is extremely important with purchases of units like this. Those two factors alone should be enough of an influence if you are in the market for an enterprise solution 128 channel capacity NVR. I also like this particular DVR because its base operating system is a LINUX system, which has performed in a very stable manner. Other NVRs may use LINUX but a good majority these days are using Windows 7 as a base operating system and I have encountered some instability issues with the Windows system myself. With this NVR You have the option of recording 128 channels at D1 resolution, 64 channels at 720P resolution, or 32 channels at 1080p resolution or a combination of these resolutions and others and various frame rates. Sub streams for monitoring at usually sent at a D1 resolution which is actually the top recording resolution for many analog units. Everything is about protection on an enterprise level with this unit. It has a redundant 100 - 240 VAC power supply to ensure uninterrupted operation (although it does consume as much as 240 watts). The NVR is rack mountable and it is pretty large weighing in at just less than 80 pounds. It has 4 USB ports, two on the front and two on the back and it can handle up to 16 hot swappable hard disk drives. It supports up to 6 monitors (one VGA) and also has a hot swappable HD LCD monitor built in to the front of the unit. Four separate RJ45 gigabit ports are located on the back that can be set up to run together or independently. It also comes with 4 gigs of RAM but can carry up to 8 gigs of DDR3 RAM for smooth operation. There are so many other features available that this unit is definitely worth checking out if you are interested. I know we are satisfied with its production and will continue to learn how to get the maximum potential performance from it over time with Security Camera King's support staff help.

  Review by Tanner Smythe, Kanawha Gaming on Apr 16, 2013
We have been using Security Camera King products for about four years now. I must say that we have never had a problem; not a break down, crash, or failure with any of their products and their performance has been far above average. Security is extremely important to our business and that is certainly one area where we can't afford to have a failure. Recently, we expanded our business with the building of another smaller facility. We decided that the best fit for this location in regard to a security camera system would be a network system, specifically the Security Camera King 128 Channel Ultimate Series DVR. It doesn't take a brilliant individual to figure out that this is quite a large investment, especially by the time you factor in the cost of the memory and video data storage drives. However, in the long run, we ran the numbers and performed our comparisons using different configurations (analog, digital, several smaller DVRS/NVRS versus fewer larger units or one large NVR in this case) and determined that with our new facility this single unit would not only best serve our needs but save us money over the long run as well. There is only one negative aspect to this for us and that is by purchasing a unit with such a large number of channels, we could be "putting all of our eggs in one basket." In other words, if this NVR stops working, our entire security system is in jeopardy. However, relying on the four years of experience we have had with other Security Camera King products (and exceptional service and support I might add) we forged ahead a purchased this "behemoth" of an NVR. We have had this NVR in place and working for almost 5 months now. We placed our order for the NVR in the beginning of the month and received the unit as promised, before the end of the month. We ordered the unit with maxed out DDR3 memory modules and plenty of extra hard disk drive space. As far as the quality of the video displays and recordings go, they are fantastic. The actual size of the NVR is large (3U) but it is still rack mountable and that is where we have it installed in our secure network room on our frame. The NVR can support up to 5 or 6 (depending on how you configure it) HDMI monitors which is almost a necessity to in order to be able to keep track of all the cameras operating at once. Not only does the NVR have a large number of monitor outputs but it also have 4 individual network ports that help increase data input and output speeds and allow everything to keep up with the massive amount of data being sent to it. As I highly doubt anyone will just "pass by" this entry on the Security Camera King web page and order this particular product I wouldn't expect my review to hold a tremendous amount of credence in your final decision making to purchase this unit and I highly recommend that you talk to Security Camera King's sales AND support team before you do. They are an excellent group of people and we are happy with their service as well as the performance of this product.

  Review by G. Wauneka, Security on Mar 18, 2013
We are a fairly newly built casino that requires intensive security camera system coverage and other security measures. Generally, we use analog systems for a good majority of our casino security video camera systems, but for our camera spots that require very high resolution detail and precise video monitoring we have decided to use the newer (albeit more expensive) IP Megapixel security systems. We have an extensive network, so having a network is not even an issue for us. We recently purchased the equipment necessary to complete our network security camera system and that included the Security Camera King 128 Channel Ultimate Series Standalone IP Security Camera NVR. There are many combinations of resolutions and recording rates available with this NVR we use thirty 2 Megapixel (1080p) cameras and record them each at a rate of 30 frames per second. While I am not at liberty to reveal details about the cameras, I can say for the purpose of this review that they in combination this NVR provide highly graphic detail including facial identification and even bill denomination during cash transactions. The NVR handles the workload rather efficiently, and does an excellent job with managing the data flow from and to the network. (This unit has 4 RJ45 Ethernet ports on the back panel that can be programmed to work together to increase initial data transfer or to work independently). For an NVR of this size, handling the work flow is only part of the necessary requirement for the unit. It needs to have ample digital storage space potential for the video cameras or, for us at least, it is useless. To give you a idea of what I am talking about, we record all 30 cameras continuously 24/7 at their highest quality recording which uses over 35 Terabytes of disk space in 7 working days. Therefore, having a potential for 16 3 Terabyte hot swappable SATA drives isn't really an option for us, it's a requirement. The NVR produces clear, high resolution color and/or black and white displays and provides for up to 6 total HDMI monitors. The NVR works very well and I would recommend it highly. Also, just a suggestion, but we found for us that using four 8 port POE switches connected to our network and then four Ethernet connections working jointly from the NVR to the network, gave us the maximum efficiency in data flow and performance.

  Review by Gale Parks, IT Systems & Security, CFS. LLC on Feb 24, 2013
I manage both our IT and Security systems for our corporation, both of which are extremely important to our mission goals. We purchased the Security Camera King 128 Channel Ultimate Series Standalone IP Security Camera NVR back in September or 2012 and it has been working great since then. I have done a lot of work and research with IT systems as well as Security Camera systems over the years and I am pretty familiar with practical application theories of both. For example, in some geographic areas of the world (Britain and Australia are two examples) security system theory involves several different concepts like "edge" recording, central management, etc. Basically, one of the thoughts is that cameras can record to their own storage device while only being controlled by the system. This significantly reduces bandwidth for IP cameras because very little data is being sent over the network to the central controllers. However, this also means that depending on the number of IP cameras in your system you could be maintaining a routine of pulling the storage medium (a micros SD card for example) out of every camera on a regular basis and transferring the files to another medium. Many IP cameras have that capability, but good luck if you have to work with a lot of cameras (could you imagine transferring data on a regular basis from say 128 cameras that are mounted in high places?). This particular NVR from Security Camera King however, uses the system of sending all data to the NVR for recording and it can handle up to 32 simultaneous 2 Megapixel or 1080p resolution cameras at 30 frames per second. There are really only two negatives to using this system. The first is data rates and bandwidth. 32 cameras at 1080p transmitting 8mbps of data can require quite a large pipeline. However, Security Camera King has found a reasonable work around with this by developing a unit with a total of 4 Ethernet points to split the workload over the network. The second negative is failure. Should this one unit fail, the entire system goes down. However there are advantages to having a single unit as well. For example 8 NVRs capable of recording 4 1080p realtime cameras would carry a price tag of about $9,600 collectively and that is using middle of the road storage potential. What I'm trying to get at here is that there are positives and negatives need to be considered before making a purchase of this type of unit. However, if you do decide to go with this Security Camera King model, I can tell you that we are completely satisfied with its performance, have not had any crashes or problems yet, and would recommend it to others.

  Review by Pike, Jonathan, IT and Security Administrator on Feb 12, 2013
This is truly "Enterprise" hardware in the making. However, to be fair, in this day and age, it is not unreasonable to consider a business or corporation using a 128 Channel Ultimate Series NVR. My employer has obviously chosen to use it, but let's get down to earth for a moment. We don't actually use 128 cameras, we do use 32 cameras though. All 32, at 1080p and I have to say that this NVR can handle the work load. It truly is amazing. The quality of the video can't eve be debated, it's that good. We upgraded our memory to 8 gigs (I figured it must be something like a caching system on a hard drive) to help the flow for the NVR and it simply works great. Thankfully, the NVR has lots of storage potential and hot swappable drives at that. I'm can't really say for sure how useful the 7 inch HD LCD monitor is because at my age I can't see two feet in front of me let alone a 7 inch LCD. I use our HDMI supported monitors. All five of them (if you use the LCD the unit can support 5 HDMI monitors; if you don't use the LCD or 1 channel VGA then the unit can support 6 HDMI monitors). Getting back to the hard drives, if the internal hot swappable hard drives aren't enough for you by the way, or you already happen to have a large eSATA drive or system, the NVR does support 1 eSATA port primarily for back up. It also supports 4 Network Ethernet connections. These can be used in a variety of ways and depending on your network system the total bandwidth of the NVR may be limited. The unit also supports Smartphone and tablet use for remote access if needed. If you need to go big on your enterprise network system, this is the NVR to consider.

Excellent High Output NVR In A Compact Rack Mountable Case
2 of 2 people found this posting helpful
  Review by Rich Grayson, IT on Jan 29, 2013
This is a very nice NVR and pretty compact too. Even though this Security Camera King NVR comes in a 3U case, most of the NVRs of this camera capacity that I have seen advertised are in huge 4U cases or vertical tower cases. (I'm still trying to figure that one out. I know all customers that purchase NVRs don't necessarily have a network or frame racks but why in a PC vertical tower case?) Since it is 3U in size and supports so many many high resolution cameras there is plenty of room inside to support multiple internal hard drives. In fact we have ours maxed out with all 16 drives at 3 Terabytes each for a total of 48 Terabytes of storage. (Not only that but the hard drives are hot swappable as well). Believe me, if you are going to do much recording, especially of 32 1080p resolution cameras you are going to want as much internal storage as you can get. That includes network access for streaming too. This NVR has a total of 4 separate RJ45 Ethernet ports that can be programmed to work independently or to work together. For video display options this unit has 6 HDMI and 1 VGA outputs. Plus it has a 7 inch HD LCD (that supports hot swapping as well) on the front face. You could easily purchase multiple smaller capacity units but the nice thing about this NVR is that it keeps everything all in one place with a nice, neat rack installation. The NVR even has alarm inputs and outputs. The system works great; it's fast and it has a good amount of DDR3 memory. My biggest difficulty I encounter with the unit is not a fault of the unit itself, but it is trying to keep track of all the cameras. Luckily, this NVR has a GUI that makes that task a little easier.

  Review by R. T., (Nevada) on Jan 11, 2013
I work for a major gaming corporation in Nevada and I can't stress how important it is that we have the best security and surveillance systems that are available. We record 64 cameras on this unit in a resolution of 720p. We've found that 720p is a good all around compromise between 1080p and D1; it gives the benefit of a megapixel resolution screen without significantly reducing the number of channels we can use. The unit is located in our central security from of course and so is our network frame work. Instead installing a bank of the older (CRT) monitors still being used today, we use all 6 HDMI monitor outputs and spread the channel distribution throughout using video matrixing. Although we have an elaborate alarm system in the building, we decided to take advantage of the alarm functions in this unit by arming sensitive areas within the security room itself, notifying key people if certain locked cabinets are accessed without authorization. I must say the unit works extremely well and the video quality is rather amazing for a total of 64 channels. Of course we use all 4 network (Ethernet) ports to ensure adequate data correspondence between the NVR and the cameras. This really is an incredible unit. I'm sure before purchasing it you'll have several questions about it as we did. Security Camera King's sales/support staff was more than eager to help and answer all of our questions adequately and thoroughly.
