What do I look for in a DVR?
There are several basic factors that you need to consider when purchasing a DVR. First you have to decide how many channels (or how many cameras) you will be connecting to the DVR. For example, a basic system may be labelled as having 4-channels - this indicates that you can connect up to 4-cameras to it. Cameras typically record video on these channels in real-time - what that means is that you will need a lot of storage space to ensure those recordings fit and that you have adequate space for current & future recordings. So coordinate your hard drive/storage size to match the # of cameras, quality of video, archival / historical timeframe you wish to log, and any other factors that will influence file size.
Beyond these considerations you will want to consider if the best solution for you is a standalone box or card style, what O/S your DVR will be running (Linux, Windows, Proprietary), and what other devices you'll want your DVR to integrate with. Many people want such features as remote monitoring via App and network access (so you can view your cameras through your cell phone or a copmuter), VGA/HDMI/DVI video outputs, backup options to external hard drives or the cloud, day/night operation capabilities, and many more.
