A hotel has always been a hotspot for security cameras. In fact most of our business actually comes from hotels wanted to install or upgrade security cameras. The last time you stayed in a hotel you may have noticed the cameras placed hallways in the hotel and maybe some around the front door, but did you ever see the security camera monitor that is usually placed behind the front counter. They mainly place the security camera monitor behind the front counter so to make sure guests can see they are being watched in order to deter crime and also to allow the staff to watch the security cameras with ease.
If you are like me you may have noticed that many of the security camera systems you see behind that desk look very old. Many times you will see the security cameras are black and white, the monitor is in a metal case and looks similar to an old tv, and if its really old you might even see an old VHS tape recorder.
These old security camera systems are being replaced daily in hotels throughout the country. The newer modern Dell based GeoVision DVR is what many hotels are opting to upgrade from there older Recorder. A DVR can easily replace the old VHS unit. If you just replace your old recorder to a newer DVR you will notice a great improvement in video quality and functionalities. This is a nice alternative to getting better video quality without having to upgrade all of your hotel’s security cameras.
Many hotels finally end up replacing their old VHS system to take advantage of the extra ports (camera connections) that a new GoeVision DVR can bring. Available in 4, 8, or 16 ports, a GeoVision DVR is both a smart upgrade to the old technology and a great way to give you additional connectors for even more cameras. For installations above 16 cameras multiple DVR's are used and simply joined to the internet to create one virtual system.
Also a Dell based DVR has the capability to be hooked up to any high speed internet. Once connected to the internet the DVR can provide a secure remote view of the security cameras in live time. This remote live view can be made available to the property owners, management, or other authorized accounts set up in the GeoVision software. This online view can be accessed through any Internet Explorer browser with no charge to you.
