4CH Tiny Network Video Recorder with 4 Ports POE
  Review by Chase Christopher on Oct 08, 2014
This is my first ever video security system. There have been too many "activities" going on my neighborhood lately that have ultimately convinced me to purchase a video camera security system. Instead of starting off with an analog system, I decided to go straight to a network system with an NVR because I feel more comfortable working with network/computer related devices. I am definitely satisfied with this NVR and would recommend it as part of a starter set-up especially.

There aren't a lot of "extras" that come with this NVR but then again, all I want is a great video picture (I don't need audio, alarms, etc.). The nice thing about this NVR is that it comes with it's own built in power supply for the cameras that can be sent over the camera network cables (Power Over the Ethernet). Once your cameras are mounted and your cables have been run, all you have to do is plug in the two power supplies, your Internet connection (usually to your own home router or modem) the cameras, and finally the monitor. Although Security Camera King doesn't sell monitors in their package kits you will still may want to purchase one. Since this unit has both HDMI and VGA hookups you can probably temporarily use a desktop computer monitor to set it up or if you want a permanent monitor for the system, I recommend you purchase that locally and catch them when they are on sale to get them at the best price. TV/monitors these days almost always have at least one HDMI input and usually a VGA as well.

The recorder works well and isn't difficult to operate or set up. I love this system because now I have instant access using my iPhone from just about anywhere. The video recordings are sharp and very good quality. Just make sure you order an internal hard disk drive large enough for your style of recording.

  Review by Luis Chavez on Sep 05, 2014
I ordered this NVR on-line and figured I would see it in about 2 weeks. I ordered it early in the week and received by the end of the week! I was, at the very least, impressed with the ordering and shipping aspect from Security Camera King. And not surprisingly, I was just as impressed with their product and their technical support. This is definitely a quality, trustworthy company that will always get my return business. Now for the specifics on the NVR.

For such a small unit, it's surprising that they could incorporate a Power Over the Ethernet unit within it, but I am glad they did. This means no need for external power supplies (injectors). All you have to do is mount the camera, plug in the Cat5 Ethernet cable to the camera and the NVR and once all four cameras are connected, plug the NVR into your network or an Internet provider using the RJ45 output jack and turn the NVR on. As a tip, it probably would be prudent at the least, to also get a surge protector/power supply strip for the NVR as the NVR does have two separate AC plug-in power supply adapters, one for the NVR and a separate one for the POE (they're included). You'll probably want to at least use a monitor to aim the cameras and set the system up, but if you are using this in your home you may want to have a permanent monitor anyway. I use the HDMI video output for my living room LCD/monitor (which is where my NVR is also located) and the VGA goes through the adjoining wall into my bedroom TV/monitor. The NVR has a GUI (Graphical User Interface) or OSD (On Screen Display) menu that allows you to configure the system, make adjustments, and operate the NVR. This interface is pretty straightforward making the NVR fairly easy to operate. After using it for a while, you'll quickly learn where everything is at. Finally, the videos are amazing. The sharpness, detail, and color is liking watching a DVD movie. I can see everything I need to see plainly and easily without question. Also, once you are hooked up to the Internet, you can use just about any Internet based operating device (such as a smartphone, blackberry, computer) to remotely view and access your system. Pretty sharp and not too expensive!

  Review by Nick Baracia on May 07, 2014
Security Camera King's 4 channel tiny network recorder is definitely cheaper than this model with the 4 port POE, but if you want a real low-hassle IP network camera experience this is the way to go. The added on POE (Power over the Ethernet) function makes this pretty much an all-in-one NVR. You simply mount your 4 POE capable megapixel cameras run a CAT5 Ethernet cable from the camera to the NVR and plug it in. When you are finished with all four cameras, plug the NVR (using the included CAT5 Ethernet cable) into your Internet Service Provider or network if you have one. The NVR basically takes care of all the rest. I actually purchased this unit for use on the perimeter of my home, which, as far a resolution is concerned, some people may thin it is overkill. But the quality of the video can't be beat, there is no guessing as to what you are looking at, and even far away objects can be easily distinguished as long as they remain in focus because of the incredibly high resolution of the picture. The NVR is small and compact which makes it great for home use and the fact that it still maintains Security Camera King's signature simultaneous remote users access via the Internet is what really makes it a plus for us. Both my wife and I use our iPhones to "check in" on our place often. Of course, since the unit is so small there is only room for one hard drive so it is best to beef up the size as much as possible. Using motion detection record can save a tremendous amount of storage space too. We like our NVR and the system as a whole and would gladly recommend it to anyone.

  Review by Wroblewski, Michael (Illinois USA) on Mar 07, 2014
I just wrote a review on the 4CH Tiny Network Video Recorder and that basically, as far as performance is concerned applies to this one too. The difference is that the creation and design of this NVR is Smart! The 4CH Tiny without the POE I purchased for work to replace one that we had purchased from some one else I while back that was a major fail. When I saw this one with the built in POE I said "I have to have that one for my home" and purchased for my use. The built in POE saves the hassle of messing with "just another piece of the puzzle" a 4 port POE switch. The NVR works really well and produces a surprisingly high quality, high definition (2 megapixel or 1080p) resolution video for each camera at 30 frames per second. We use this and four outdoor cameras to protect the perimeter of our home AND our yard. The megapixel resolution of the cameras makes this possible without any difficulty. I'd recommend this unit, after all, I purchased the first one for work and then recommended to myself to purchase this one for home!
