    8CH H.264 PoE 1080P NVR

    Control and power up to eight IP-based PoE video cameras using this 8-Channel H.264 PoE 1080p Network Video Recorder (NVR) from Monoprice!

    This NVR is designed to connect to IP-based video surveillance cameras using Cat5e or Cat6 Ethernet cable. It supports the Power over Ethernet (PoE) feature, so you don't need to run separate power lines to your cameras. Each of the eight channels supports dual streaming and each channel can be configured for a different resolution, frame rate, bit rate, image quality, etc.

    The NVR can be connected to one or more monitors using either the HDMI or VGA video interface, each of which supports display resolutions up to 1920x1080p. The Live view can display 1, 2, 4, or 8 channels and the display sequence is fully customizable. It supports motion detection, video tampering detection, video content analysis, video exception, and video loss alarm functions and includes the ability to create custom privacy masks.

    It supports two internal 3.5" hard drives with a capacity up to 4TB each. Up to eight NAS drives, or seven NAS and one IP SAN drives, can be connected for additional storage capacity.

    In addition to full local control, the NVR can be fully managed from a remote location using a web accessible interface, including the ability to remotely lock out local mouse or remote control access. Recordings can be remotely viewed, managed, and backed up as well. A pre-record and post-record feature allows you to include video from a few seconds before an alarm event until a few seconds after the alarm ceases.

    Is it a re-branded Hikvision, like the cameras?
    A shopper on Mar 2, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: There's a good chance it is. Mine came with no label whatsoever. That being said, I've been running it for 6 months with no issues what-so-ever. It's worked really well.
    Is it viewable through PC apps like SwannView Plus Client or Hikvision iVMS-4200 Client?
    Jeff E on Mar 2, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Yes the iVMS-4500 app works well in Android and iOS. The problem is viewing and replaying in a browser on a Mac. Now that both Chrome and Firefox have disabled add-ons, it appears Safari can view in real-time but can't replay anything.
    Where do i find the firmware to upgrade the NVR?

    I bought the unit w/o a HDD and added my own Seagate 4TB HDD. Word of warning: the unit will beep incessantly until you initialize the HDD. I can see why it does this but it is super annoying as there is no way to setup the unit quickly. However, initialization went smoothly and w/out issues. The unit recognized my HDD and used all 4TB.

    Setup is difficult because even though this is an NVR no network functionality is present until you finish setup. So you have to setup the device either using the button on the unit, included mouse, or remote. Per the manual there is a remote included with this unit. However, neither of my two units came with one. I contacted Monoprice and after a week of waiting they are "changing the manual to reflect that there is no remote!"

    Once you get through the setup though the unit is easy enough to use. I was even able to get it to work with my Vivotek VS8100 that converts my only analog camera to an IP one. Note that I could not use PnP or the ONVIF protocol to do this and had to set the camera to Vivotek protocol and give it an IP address on the internal routing of the NVR.

    Overall I would say not bad for the price. The unit works well enough with the IP cameras sold on the site. Only question is if we can update the FW w/ Hikvision as new features are made available...

    PROS: Decent construction. Easy to use.

    CONS: No remote control included. LOUD!

    There is a lot to like and a lot more to dislike. I spent more hours working on the set up than I did running cables and installing the cameras. There is a 195 page manual that does not offer much help. The specs from Monoprice say that this has a rack-mounted 1U chassis and the included documentation refers to brackets for mounting in a server rack, but there are no brackets in the package. (Monoprice says that just because they say it is rack-mounted, doesn't mean that it is. And they don't offer the brackets.) This was an important feature for me and I would not have purchased it had I known.

    You can access the recorder with a web browser. However, the recorder uses ActiveX which is not supported in Chrome or Edge for security reasons. Monoprice's solution is to lower your defenses, step back in time and use Internet Explorer. Monoprice recommends the Guarding Expert app which I have yet to get it to connect. (Again, the manual offers little help.)

    It took a long time to get the motion detect feature to work. The secret I found was to change the sensitivity setting. It seems that nothing will trigger the motion detection at the default setting.

    The user interface is clunky. I had trouble getting some of the settings to work when I accessed the box using IE.

    Installing the hard drives was easy, although the box makes a lot of noise during the process. I installed two 4TB drives to support five cameras. It appears that this will be a huge amount of space.

    The picture quality is great. Setting up recording options is a little cumbersome but not terrible. It does offer a lot of recording options.

    This recorder works OK, but the misleading rack-mount description and weak browser support would have kept me from buying it had I known. This is the first Monoprice item that disappointed me.

    PROS: Picture Quality, PoE, Recording Options

    CONS: Browser Support, No Mounting Brackets, Poor Documentation

    Works well with Firefox, reliable but hardly intuitive. Playback scrolling too slow
    I've had this guy running for almost a year now - four POE cameras plus two network cameras linked to the NVR via a switch. This was kind of tricky to get everything communicating. Five of the cameras are MonoPrice or HikVision one is a Samsung SmartVision IP camera. Getting that Samsung to stream to this NVR was a real bear since it's not ONVIF compatible and the RTSP stream is documented nowhere.
    But since getting it all up it's very reliable and easy to access from within or outside the network. The worst part is the incredibly limited browser support. Only Firefox works well to see the stream. Firefox is a great browser, but it's not my browser of choice (Chrome) so launching it just to see my stream is a small hassle. If only the NVR was HTML5 compliant, it would be browser agnostic. But I can dream...
    The IP cameras hooked up to a switch and separately administered through their own IP are easy to configure - just log in to the camera and set your camera settings and reboot. The cameras hooked up through the POE ports, however, need to be administered via a Virtual Host setting which is well hidden in the Advanced Settings/Other menu hardly intuitive and required a firmware update (which MonoPrice doesn't supply on the product page so I took a gamble updating the unit with it). Once the firmware is updated and Virtual Host activated, configuring the cameras is easy from within the configuration page of the NVR, but even then you need to be within the intranet to configure the cameras - remote administration is impossible.
    The DDNS support is strong and the NVR serves up video and pages quickly from outside the network.
    Android and iOS support is excellent (easier than from a PC given the inability to use anything but Firefox) - Hikvision has written some well-designed phone/tablet apps.
    The "Playback" feature is very poorly designed - selecting it takes you to the start of the current day (midnight) rather than the current time. OK - not too bad. You then have to drag the timebar slider around to find the time you want to see. You can only speed the playback up to 4X speed which is *nowhere near* fast enough to scan large times of video if you don't have a good starting point. It should be closer to 25X speed to scroll through huge swaths of video until you find what you looking for and then you can slow it down to look at details. It's virtually impossible to find a specific event stuck at 4X speed. You can't scroll video or change the playback speed at full screen either.

    PROS: Reliable
    Excellent quality video
    Fast web interface and page-serving (but non-intuitive)

    CONS: Hard to configure with non-Hikvision components
    Remote camera administration is impossible without screen sharing a computer within the NVR intranet
    Firmware update not available from MonoPrice - need to download elsewhere and gamble that it will work
    Playback selection difficult to navigate and can't speed up nearly enough.

    Good Luck viewing it
    While it's nice to have the cameras and to be able to record. Not being able to view them is a big problem. Upgrade to windows 10 and nothing works. Its works best with a Windows XP computer with no updates. I'd return it and the cameras now that it's not view able from a computer

    PROS: Easy setup

    CONS: Can't view the cameras from a computer because of browser support
