The free app allows you to view all 16 channels at once as well as playback audio and video files directly on your smartphone.

Welcome to true Smartphone connectivity.

The included Control Management Software (CMS)* for PCs gives you the ability to monitor multiple locations on one screen. Purchase up to 100 different PRO series security kits and access all of them at once with the included CMS software.

Free DDNS Service

960H Recording

5 times larger than CIF and over 33% larger than D1, 960H is the perfect resolution to fit your widescreen TV or monitor. 960H allows you to record at a resolution of 960 by 480 horizontal TV lines. So images are crisper and clearer than both CIF and D1. This new standard was designed to fit the most recent monitors and TV’s. With 960H recording and HDMI output, you will clearly see the difference.

Professional Digital Video Recorder

Configuring your DVR for the first time does not need to be complicated. Since every user requires a unique configuration for their security system Night Owl has launched an easy to use quick Setup Wizard. The Setup Wizard will automatically launch upon the initial startup of your DVR and walk you through the crucial steps of setting up the DVR properly. The only thing worse than not having a security system is having a system that is not configured properly.

Large 1 TB Security HD and Easy to use Interface

This DVR comes equipped with a state of the art, easy to use, icon based interface. All you need to do is point and click to access any of the features of the DVR. The interface is very user friendly and comes equipped with both a USB mouse and remote control. Utilizing H.264 compression this system records up to 1 year of video with its pre-installed 1TB security hard drive. If your needs change you can always expand the system up to 2TB. * The hard drive was specifically designed for DVRs. It provides faster read/write times and reliable recording of your video security footage.

600 TV Line Cameras with Facial Recognition

These sleek indoor/outdoor cameras display hi-resolution images day or night with an advanced 600 TVL sensor that offer up to 50FT of facial recognition.* The 3-Axis bracket will also allow you to mount to any ceiling or wall at any angle and the metal alloy housing and vandal-proof cabling system detours would-be prowlers.

50FT of Night Vision and Auto IR Cut Filter

The hi-resolution cameras are equipped for night vision up to 50FT away in complete darkness.* With the Auto IR cut filter sensor these cameras produce a clear and crisp image day or night.

Bonus 2 Audio Enabled Cameras Included:
