About SVAT Electronics

The SVAT 8 Channel H.264 Smart DVR is an inexpensive and easy to use DVR that can be accessed over the Internet or even on your 3G smart phone device such as a BlackBerry or iPhone. You can also have the DVR automatically send you an email alert whenever motion is detected in front of a camera. This way you can keep an eye on your home or business anytime and from anywhere.

This DVR uses the H.264 compression method to generate quality video images while maximizing hard drive space. A total of 240 FPS are available for distribution among the 8 cameras. This translates into a full 30 FPS recording speed possible for each camera input (at 352 x 288 resolution).

Video is recorded to an internal 500GB HDD, which can be expanded to 1.5TB (1 internal SATA bay). A USB port means that you can easily back up footage to an external USB HDD or flash memory device. You can also connect an external DVD or CD burner for transferring material to optical disc media.

SVAT designed this DVR for ease of setup and operation with a menu system that helps you find the tools you're looking for while explaining what each feature does. You can also conveniently access the menu from a distance using the provided IR remote control.
