The Security First FDVS-1409 14-inch Color Quad Digital Video Recorder System with 120 GB HDD and 4 Cameras provides convenience, versatility, and quality in a robust and complete system. This system allows you to view up to four camera locations in real-time sequentially in full-screen, or simultaneously in quad mode. The FDVS-1409 includes four cameras of three different types: a dome camera for more discrete surveillance, a weather-resistant bullet camera with a sunshield for outdoor coverage, and two PIR (passive infrared) motion-sensor cameras that alert you to camera activity. This system also includes a built-in DVR (digital video recorder) for easy recording of ongoing surveillance video. Rich in features, the Security First FDVS-1409 is a complete, self-contained and versatile observation system perfect for everything from the home or business applications, to professional security installations.

The FDVS-1409's 14-inch color picture-tube monitor and DVR has an easy on-screen operating menu that is controlled from the front panel, and utilizes a modified MJPEG compression format. This unit supports real-time quad viewing and recording of all four cameras simultaneously, and includes a built-in speaker and microphone for two-way audio communication to camera locations. The FDVS-1409 has a built-in 120 GB HDD (hard disk drive) with the capability to add an additional one, and supports single or dual HDD recording overwriting. This allows the DVR to store up to 12 months of video recording at one fps (frames per second) on two 120 GB HDDs. The FDVS-1409's DVR and monitor show a warning when the HDD is getting full, can be password protected, and allow image searching by event or time and manually via a three-speed fast-forward or rewind. Compatible with both standard TV system formats, this system can record up to 1,680 hours of full-screen content in NTSC and 1,750 hours in PAL. Multi-voltage compatible, this unit runs on 100- to 250-volts of AC power, achieves an horizontal resolution of 350 TVL (TV lines) at up to 30 fps (frames-per-second), and has an operating temperature of 6 to 171 degrees Fahrenheit. All four included cameras utilize color CCD image sensors, and are powered through the monitor via their included 60-foot connecting cables.

Designed to meet a variety of needs with one system, the Security First FDVS-1409 is a complete security surveillance application. Perfect for small- to medium-sized installations, the FDVS-1409 allows up to four cameras to be controlled, viewed, and recorded all by a single unit. Users should note that the CCD image sensors in the cameras may become permanently damaged if exposed to long hours of direct sunlight or halogen light, so the cameras should not be mounted or pointed directly at the sun or other bright-light sources.

About Surveillance Camera Technical Features
Lux rating is the measurement used to indicate how sensitive a camera is to light, and stands for the level of light reflected off a piece of paper by a candle from one meter away. Thus a sensitivity of three Lux would mean a camera could generate an acceptable picture of a piece-of-paper-sized object that was illuminated by the equivalent of three candles from one meter away. The lower the Lux level, the better the camera's ability to work in low-light conditions. The camera's resolution should be greater than or equal to the resolution supported by the system's recorder or monitor. The S/N, or signal to noise ratio, is an important measure of a camera's quality. A poor camera, low-light conditions or poor wiring causes "noise" which consumes processing power and disk space. A camera with a wide dynamic range is ideal, especially for recording areas in which both indoor and outdoor light are present. CCD (charge-coupled device) sensors provide high-quality images that are less susceptible to noise. CMOS (complimentary metal-oxide semiconductor) sensors offer less image quality, but are usually more cost-effective and energy efficient.
