I am making the transition from an analog DVR to a NVR system. I have decided that your NVR-ELE8M-4K unit meets most of my requirements. After downloading your manual for this item and reading it , I have most of my questions answered. But not all.It has been a learning experience.

Here are my concerns:

If I buy IP cameras with built in or plug in audio capability can I have up to a total of 8 channel audio recording ?

Can the NVR be remotely configured ?

Does the NVR have a maintenance reboot schedule ability ?
* I found that it can be in sect 4.15.8 Auto Maintain

Does this NVR need port forwarding enabled for a remote client from PC / Phone ?

All in all, this NVR has some really advance features for it’s price point, reading the manual without having the item in front of you produces informational overload.

Thank you in advance !

Hi red-wolf –

**If I buy IP cameras with built in or plug in audio capability can I have up to a total of 8 channel audio recording ?

yes – all incoming audio from IP cameras can be recorded. The audio is integrated into the IP stream.

**Can the NVR be remotely configured ?

Absolutely!

**Does the NVR have a maintenance reboot schedule ability ?
* I found that it can be in sect 4.15.8 Auto Maintain

Looks like you answered this one already – it is in Auto maintain.

**Does this NVR need port forwarding enabled for a remote client from PC / Phone ?

Port forwarding is always the best bet as it opens up your options for connecting – you can use a Static IP Address-or you can set up DDNS using the built in ‘Quick DDNS’ or set up a TechPro DDNS, or DDNS of your choice among the other options listed (DYNDNS/No-IP, etc) There is also a P2P function that eliminates the need for port forwarding. The P2P interface for PC is limited to Live view and replay – there is no access to settings on the DVR/NVR like you get with Client or Browser. There is a “SmartPSS’ remote client or you can use web browser (Internet Exploder). We also have apps for Android and iOS. Plenty of remote connection options.

I am pretty impressed by the product line as well – the units are very feature rich for the price point! Plus you have Tech Support ready to help in any way we can – we can even log in to your PC remotely and help you configure the system if you wish.

Let us know if there is anything we can help with!
