I have an upcoming installation for a Sheriff's office and jail.  It involves 3 DVRs in separate locations.  My plan is to install a Windows PC running PSS to view the cameras from the 3 DVRs in dispatch.  This PC will need to run constantly, streaming the video from the 3 DVRs over their existing network.  From my tests this shouldn't be a problem but would like some feedback on any potential caveats to this plan.  I will probably block access to the Internet to keep this PC safe from infection so my only real concern is that PSS can run and constantly stream footage from the 3 separate DVRs.  Any feedback would be appreciated.

We have many dealers that use PSS to build 24/7 monitoring stations. It is a very stable program and has many features that you will find useful. The only thing to consider is bandwidth. If you are inside the network you will have either 100mbps or 1000mbps available. I recommend you set up the monitoring station using the substream if possible to conserve bandwidth and PC resources. If the monitoring station will be outside the network, then you need to be very, very careful about the available bandwidth. It is unlikely that you will have enough up bandwidth from the DVR network to support opening all cameras on all three DVRs even if using the substream.

PSS is an awesome tool for your application.  We use it 24 hours a day and have no problems.

As a folllowup, this project has been complete for about 3 weeks.  The PSS software is working great in a 24/7 mode connected to 3 DVR's and 30 cameras.

I'm thinking of bidding on some law enforcement projects as well. What do you do to help limit the liability on your end if something were to go wrong? (outside of your control of course, network went down, dvr shut down uniexpectedly, etc)
