What is the Streaming Video Recorder (SVR)?

Equipment | Outdoor Cameras

The streaming video recorder (SVR) is a device that allows indoor and outdoor cameras to record 24/7.

It has a built-in hard drive that stores all videos and typically holds 1TB of storage. 

It works on a first in, first out basis. So, if the hard drive is full, it will automatically delete the oldest footage to make room for the newest footage. Storage can vary depending on the settings for the camera, but on average, it holds about 30 days’ worth of footage.

SVRs need to be hardwired into an internet source, so they are typically placed near a router.
