Thieves. Their goal in life is to take what's yours - and they'll break into your business or home to do it. Trust SVAT to make them think twice about your property.

Our cameras deliver high-quality video that can assist in putting them away. Don't give thieves a chance. Stop them with SVAT!

Extremely easy to set up and use

You'd expect a system that keeps such a close eye over all you hold dear to be complex. You'll be surprised how easily this SVAT system operates. It functions just like a computer, with a mouse for pointing and clicking and an intuitive icon-based menu that provides prompts and coaching to assist you in navigating the system. It's even so simple to use it will begin recording as soon as it's plugged in.

Crisp and detailed video you can rely on

Your security system is only worthwhile if you can actually see the person stealing from you. SVAT DVR records in D1 resolution, which is the equivalent of 720 x 480 pixels or DVD quality. The resulting clear, crisp and accurate video feed will help put the criminal away.

Always be Connected

Everyone needs a vacation to get away from it all. With SVAT you can enjoy yourself with peace of mind, knowing you can view your camera footage live online, anytime and anywhere. On either a PC or Mac you can use such search engines as Internet Exploreror Safari. You can also view footage on almost any smartphone, including iPhone, BlackBerry, Android, Windows Mobile, or Symbian, as well as on your iPad and most major tablets. Whether monitoring your business or home, you will always feel in control.

Two years' worth of footage storage - and more if you need it

The included 500 GB hard drive allows continuous monitoring and recording of over two years' worth of footage! Your DVR sends an alert when your memory space is full so that you can choose to overwrite old video or stop the unit from recording. The built-in USB port gives you the option of backing up and transferring your video footage with a USB flash drive or external USB hard drive. And if you need to expand your storage even further, you can choose to record only when motion is detected. This DVR uses H.264 compression which maximizes recording time, transfers data more efficiently over the internet and you'll use 50% less storage space than traditional compressions - MPEG4, MJPEG - while still benefitting from high-quality imagery.

This SVAT system is designed to send you an email alert, complete with photo, if any motion is detected on your property or if any of your cameras experience video loss.
