Eight high resolution cameras, made with Sharp image sensors, provide you with a clear and consistent picture at 480 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.
With the SN301-8CH, you have several easy ways to back up your important video footage. A built-in USB port gives you more options when backing up and transferring your video footage. Connect a USB flash drive and store the files permanently on your computer or an external hard drive. You can also connect to an external CD/DVD writer and burn your footage to a disc.
You have the option to record video only when motion is detected, which will 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.
You can fully customize a weekly recording schedule. Choose which days of the week and hours of the day you want to continuously record, motion record, or stop recording. Each camera can be scheduled with different settings.
Watch an individual camera in full screen, 4 cameras in a quad screen, or an 8 channel split screen. Zoom mode allows you to enlarge a portion of the camera's view to get a closer look, and Sequence mode cycles through all camera views a preset interval times.
Finding your recorded footage is easy. Simply choose the desired date and time range and the requested video clips will appear. Clips are also labeled by event, which makes it easy to find footage that was captured by motion detection.
The included 60ft camera wiring gives you flexibility in the installation of your cameras and allows you to increase each camera's range. If you require additional 65ft cable lengths, you can purchase the 21007 extension cable. The single wire also conveniently carries both the power and video signals, so you are only running one wire per camera (maximum 180ft of cabling per camera is recommended).

sgpacer 5 Easy Set up and Use
I just installed this at my home. So simple to install and set up. I was slightly intimidated when I first opened the box, but once I ran all the wires to the camera locations, the system was basically plug and play. the night vision is excellent, my cameras are rated for 25 feet but I can see well past that.
