Measuring a mere 3"x1.75"x1.25", Dakota Alert's DVR-01 is one of the most compact and discreet surveillance systems you can find. Because the DVR-01 is battery powered you can place it in any location for up to 10 days without recharging, while its powerful built-in motion detector allows the unit to record 30 seconds of both VIDEO and AUDIO whenever someone or something passes as far as 30 feet away from it!

The footage is stored in a 4GB Micro-SD card and can be retrieved by connecting the DVR-01 to your computer using the USB cord included. For those of you who'd like to extend surveillance to the evening hours, the DVR-01 is also equipped with Infrared operation, which allows the unit to record in low-light conditions.


  • Built-in motion detector
  • Automatically records video and audio
  • Plug-and-play USB interface
  • Time & date stamp
  • Battery operated
  • 4GB Micro-SD card (included)
  • User friendly


When placing the DVR-01, make sure the PIR sensor is above the camera or the video will record upside down with the time stamp right side up.

Well this thing lasted for only a few months and it suffers from a bad design. First, there is no way to know when it is fully charged. The only such device to omit such a basic function. Second, the method to download videos is very backward and poorly implemented in this day and age. Very poor craftsmanship and design.

I have utilized a number of supposedly good cameras and I have to say these are great as they are small portable so you can put them anywhere you want.

This is an excellent little night vision camera. I set the camera up in a pitch-black utility room. The camera's night vision and 640x480 resolution made everything in the pitch-black room clear and vivid. The infrared night vision worked so well that I could clearly read labels on a water heater ten feet away! Also, the built-in microphone is great! It's sensitive and you can hear little sounds that other cameras wouldn't pick up.. such as foot steps from twenty feet away. And best of all you don't need any software! I just plug the camera into my computer's usb port and the videos are automatically loaded, making it very easy and convenient to review the recorded video clips. The motion sensor is quick and accurate too. I highly recommend getting this camera for clear indoor day and night video capture!
