We have a NVR in a remote, isolated place that has been in place for months recording anything that moves! It has worked very well, and done it’s job over the last few months. We have discovered some “mischief” that took place over the winter and the powers that be now want to review some of the video from this location.
It is not preferable to have these people sitting in a little closet looking at a monitor connected to the NVR (NVR-ELE8M-P4K). I would like to download blocks of video from a couple of different camera’s so that they can view it somewhere much more comfortable.
What is the best way to proceed? Would an external HDD work? If so, what would they need to view whatever file(s) are copied?
Is it possible to hook a drive up via USB and execute the transfer from the user interface on the NVR?
An external HDD will work to back up your footage. If you know the time and date you will simply go to playback and select the times then backup your data onto the drive. When you do this a player will also be added to the HDD automatically so that you can view it from any PC.
Here is a good video on how to backup your data.
If you have further questions please feel free to open a chat session. We are here from Monday through Friday from 9 am to 8 pm EST.
