Choosing the right security system

differences between Lorex MPX analog HD security systems and Lorex NVR security systems
MPX or IP? What security systems to choose? analog or digital?
easy installation with PoE (Power over Ethernet technology)

Plug-and-play installation via PoE

Simply connect your IP cameras to the NVRs 8 integrated power-over-ethernet (PoE) ports for a truly plug-and-play surveillance experience. Using PoE technology, each camera only requires a single ethernet cable to connect it to the NVR. This all-in-one cable provides both power and video transmission up to 300ft / 91m. The auto-detect function automatically discovers and configures compatible IP cameras on the same local network as the NVR so you will have your system up and running in no time. This NVR can also incorporate a PoE switch. This switch allows you to not only extend and minimize the amount of cabling required, but it also opens the door for additional cameras.

Security grade hard drive for high workloads

Pre-installed security grade hard drive

Weeks (if not months) of recorded security footage can be safely stored on the dependable 1TB security certified hard drive inside of the NR800 Series NVR. Not only is this HDD designed to be in constant use, it can easily continue to record even while you watch recorded footage. Schedule specific time periods or adapt the NVR to record at a lower resolution to extend available hard drive space. You can also maximize storage space by recording only when movement is detected.
