Hikvision Hybrid DVR
At 360 Security Solutions, we are proud to provide our customers with the very latest and best Hikvision hybrid DVRs. These products have been designed to bridge the gap between analog and IP cameras, helping your business ensure its current and future surveillance goals are met without the need for major system overhauls every few years.
Established in 2001, Hikvision is the world’s leading video surveillance products supplier (according to IHS Market). Accounting for 19.5% of market share in the global video surveillance industry in 2015, Hikvision provides video surveillance products and vertical market solutions in the global market, and for a number of notable facilities, including the Beijing Olympic Stadium, Shanghai Expo, Brazil World Cup Stadium and many others.
Typically, when upgrading an analog system to IP it is necessary to abandon your existing analog system entirely. A Hikvision hybrid DVR allows businesses to keep their existing security cameras whilst advancing their system with IP cameras; this ensures you haven’t wasted previous investments.
This is because hybrid systems are capable of recording both analog and IP camera footage. So you can continue to use your current system and gradually integrate more IP cameras over time, or simply to locations that would benefit more from certain IP camera functions.
For example, users can place the newer feature-packed IP cameras in higher sensitivity areas, and have the older analog models in lower risk areas that would still benefit from surveillance.
When to Invest in a Hybrid?
A hybrid DVR is a perfect addition to any business or job site that is growing or expecting to expand in the near future. The hybrid’s ability to support multiple analog and IP cameras allows the user to add security when they can afford to and in an intelligent way.
After all, there’s no point investing in an entire analog system if you’re wanting to use IP in the future. A hybrid allows you to use analog and gradually introduce IP, or place IP cameras in key areas with additional but affordable coverage from analog.
