Hi,

The NVR is a bit noisy so I'm thinking of putting it in a closet that backs on to my office wall.

Will a windows Bluetooth mouse work with my 8ch Tiny NVR?

 

Thanks,

Tom

We have had the best success with the logitech  wireless mouses. I would think as long as you do not need to install drivers should work.

I forgot about the drivers. Have you used a Logitech mouse on any of your NVR's or DVR's?

 

Best,

Tom

I have used mine and it worked. I would suggest just plugging them in if you have them and testing them out. A lot of wireless mouses (mice?) work with the DVRs/NVRs

Thanks.

I don't have one. So I want to make sure they will work before I buy one. Do most of these devices have a dongle or something that plugs into the usb port on the NVR/DVR?

 

Best,

Tom

Tom,

 

Most all wireless mice will come with a dongle that will plug into the USB port on the NVR.  I have used a variety of wireless mice with my units, what you will need to make sure that the dongle is visible so the mouse and dongle can communicate.

Hi Ryan,

 

I'm putting the NVR in a closet behind a wall about 12 feet from a dedicated monitor 

 on the mouse side of the wall. I read the bluetooth signal will go through a wall.

 

Best,

Tom

Tom,

 

I have never had good luck with Bluetooth going through the wall.  I generally will run a USB extension into the same room so the dongle is in the same room as the mouse.  I have found this works the best.  I have tried several bluetooth mice and have yet to have good results through walls.
