ECO6 16-Channel Real-time Security DVR with 960H Security Cameras

Experience true peace of mind with the powerful new 16-channel ECO6 Stratus DVR with high-quality 960H security cameras.

This impressive surveillance system offers real-time (30 fps) 960H video on every channel for smooth, high-quality recordings across the board. The included bullet cameras use an advanced new 960H image sensor, providing sharp, detailed, non-stretched images. The ECO6 DVR brings a heightened level of detail and clarity to your surveillance needs, ensuring you never miss out on important details.

This premium security system uses 960H weatherproof bullet cameras, boasting 900TV lines of resolution for unmatched picture quality. The cameras have a vandal resistant design with a cable pass through bracket, allowing you to keep cables out of sight and inaccessible to intruders. The weatherproof rated (IP66) cameras are resistant to harsh temperatures as low as -4°F (-20°C), making them suitable for outdoor applications in colder climates. Each bullet camera uses 24 IR LED's for a stellar night vision range of up to 130ft (40m) in ambient night time conditions, and up to 90ft (28m) in total darkness. ClearNight Imaging technology and Day/Night mode provide enhanced low light performance for a surveillance solution that performs around the clock.

1. Requires a high speed internet connection and a router (not included). An upload speed of 1Mbps is recommended for the best video performance. Up to 3 devices may connect to the system at the same time. For the latest list of supported apps and devices, check www.lorextechnology.com/support.
2. Optimized when used with 960H compatible cameras. DVR is backwards compatible and supports different camera inputs: standard resolution and 960H.
3. High definition recording not supported, recording resolution is limited to a maximum of 960x480 per channel. Image quality and resolution is dependent on the type of camera connected to the DVR.
4. Recording time may vary based on recording resolution & quality, lighting conditions and movement in the scene.
5. Both firmware and software must be updated to latest version to ensure remote connectivity. Always update to the latest software (available at www.lorextechnology.com) after upgrading the DVR firmware.
6. This camera features an ultra-low light sensitive image sensor and therefore does not feature Infra-Red LEDs. The camera requires ambient lighting (for example, street/building lighting, star or moon light) to render a night time image. In total darkness (zero Lux) the camera will not produce a night time image and therefore the camera should not be installed in completely dark areas.
7. Wall mount only. Ceiling mount not supported.
8. When connected to a 960H DVR.
9. Stated IR illumination range is based on ideal conditions in typical outdoor night time ambient lighting and in total darkness. Actual range and image clarity depends on installation location, viewing area and light reflection / absorption level of object.
