4CH Tiny Network Video Recorder
  Review by Rollie Cooke on Oct 08, 2014
I'm sure there are several ideal applications for this NVR but for my particular situation, I purchased it for exterior coverage of my home. I think it is an excellent way to get started in IP network video security without going crazy on the investment. As far as connections go, there is really very little to do other than plug in the power cord, attached the network cable and plug in an HDMI or VGA monitor if you need one. The only thing that about this NVR is that it has no accompanying POE switch built in to the NVR or with the package deal, and I would think the majority of the people that use it would also want to use POE unless they have to use a local power supply for some reason. The NVR produces good videos and is a great find for such a small investment.

  Review by Dan Stratton on Sep 04, 2014
I purchased this and received it and the cameras all in the same week. Security Camera King sales and customer service was very good. Installing this NVR and the entire system was relatively easy. I think this is a great way for the residential customer (like myself) to get into the netowrki9ng side of CCTV protection without spending a fortune for the NVR. If you are new to CCTV systems, I would say not to be afraid to "jump right in" with this NVR because it works well, it's decent quality for the price, and the price is economical. One important issue though. Although they tell you in the "Description" section, it does not come with a 4 Port Power Over the Ethernet (POE) switch, you must purchase it separately; and MAKE SURE you purchase it because you will need it in order to power the cameras and connect them to the NVR easily. You could power each camera locally with an injector especially if you have CAT 5 running all over your house, but it is still much simpler and quicker to get the switch. Plus this little guy can pump out recordings for 4 cameras simultaneously at 1080p (2 megapixel) resolution and 30 frames per second. The video picture by the way, is very crisp and colorful and can be viewed singularly on your TV/monitor so identification and/or facial features aren't even an issue. Plus it can actually display two monitors at once by using the HDMI and VGA connections. I have the HDMI connected to our large LCD TV/monitor in the family room and another VGA monitor in my office. It has room for only 1 hard drive but if you purchase one that's big enough you should be fine for home use especially. Lastly, thumbs up to Security Camera King's technical support folks. They are very helpful and know their products inside and out so they can help you with just about any issue regarding the NVR.

Security Camera King has made this is a great way to make IR network megapixel cameras easily affordable for residential use including apartments and condominiums. This little "beast" can actually handle 4 cameras at 1080p and each at 30 frames per second. In fact you can bump it up to 3 megapixel cameras too, with a reduction in frame rate. Just remember if you purchase this unit though, you will need to get either a 4 port POE Switch or 4 power injectors or independent power supplies for the cameras. The video recordings are great quality. They are clear, detailed, and colorful. There's not a lot of frills with this unit such as audio inputs or outputs, alarms, an internal DVD burner, etc. and it can only house 1 internal hard drive but all of that helps to keep the cost way down. It still can control a PTZ and simultaneous remote user access over the Internet works just great!

  Review by Wroblewski, Michael (Illinois USA) on Mar 07, 2014
This little NVR works surprisingly well. It appears to be fine for just about any application but the best one I can see is for the average homeowner that only needs four cameras but would like the advantage of extremely high definition with megapixel network quality at a relatively low price. Don't be fooled by the price though as even though the unit is currently priced at only $199.95 an internal hard drive will cost anywhere from $99 to $289 and DON"T FORGET to purchase a POE switch. Security Camera King sells one for $99.95 that will work (their product number POE-4GIG) so at a minimum this "Tiny" 4 channel will still cost about $400.oo to get started but that is still outrageously inexpensive compared to network video recorder systems in the past. The key here, I think is that you'll still get a decent NVR you can use at home for a cheap price and it can record 4 cameras simultaneously at 1080p resolution and at 30 frames per second each. The NVR is small so you can tuck it just about anywhere and it will be out of the way. As I said before it yields surprisingly high quality video recordings and I would recommend it to my friends.
