    Fast & Hassle-Free Setup
    The CV501-16CH-007 is one of SVAT's complete do-it-yourself systems that are incredibly easy to set up and use with no need to hire a professional installer. Auto-start recording ensures that your system will automatically begin recording as soon as you plug it in to a power outlet. You can easily monitor entryways, offices, shops, warehouses, children's rooms, garages, or any other area in your business or home.

    iPhone & BlackBerry Compatible
    Access live video footage directly from your iPhone or BlackBerry. This DVR allows you to utilize 3G technology, which is specifically designed to transmit your video and audio at higher speeds. Your DVR can also be set up to email your hand-held whenever specific activity occurs, such as motion detection.

    View Video Online with No Service Fees
    Regardless of where you are in the world, you can view your DVR's live or recorded video footage on any internet accessible computer with Internet Explorer. See what is happening on your property and check in on your employees or family members. (Requires a router, Windows operating system, Internet Explorer browser, and broadband Internet connection for online viewing).

    Record over 8 Years of Video Footage
    The 500GB hard drive can hold over 8 years of continuous video and is optimized for 24/7 surveillance. We only use hard drives that are specifically designed for high capacity writing, which ensures long product life and accurate video data storage. Your DVR will alert you when your memory space is full so that you can overwrite your old video, stop the unit from recording, or backup and transfer your video footage.

    Cutting Edge H.264 Compression
    The CV501-16CH-007 utilizes H.264 compression, the latest and most advanced compression level available for a DVR system. You will see an amazing picture but save almost 50% on storage space versus DVRs with MPEG-4 compression! H.264 maximizes your hard drive space.

    Advanced Motion Activated Recording
    You have the option to record video only when motion is detected. Finding important video footage using the playback feature is easy, and will also save you time and conserve hard drive space. You can even set individual cameras to detect motion while the others continuously record. Advanced motion detection settings ensure that false alarms are not triggered - the easy motion detection "mask" allows you to block out areas with constant movement, such as roads or blowing trees so that only suspicious activity is recorded.

    8 Professional Grade Weatherproof Cameras
    Eight high resolution color cameras provide you with a clear and consistent picture at 420 TV lines of resolution. They allow you to better distinguish facial features, which can help in the positive identification of individuals. The cameras can be used indoors and outdoors. Each one is built with professional grade aluminum housing and a sunshade to help prevent glare, deterioration and rusting.

    View in the Dark with Automatic Night Vision
    The cameras come equipped with night vision, allowing you to see any monitored area (up to 15ft away!) in total darkness. Each camera has 12 infrared LEDs that activate automatically when it becomes dark and deactivate during the day to save energy. You will always be able to see what is happening in your yard or at your business after-hours.

    Expandable System up to 16 Cameras
    As your business grows, so can your security system. If you are looking to boost your security and monitor more areas, you can add up to 8 additional cameras for more robust monitoring. Any camera with a power supply and a RCA or BNC connection is compatible. Cameras in this system have the model number VU301-C.

    Stay Notified with Email Alerts
    This system keeps you notified of events occurring in your monitoring location. You can set the unit to automatically send alerts to your email inbox whenever motion is detected or when cameras lose power. Up to seven different email addresses can receive these alerts.
