SVAT is well known through out the industry for producing the most innovative Do It Yourself surveillance systems
is a perfect example.
This security camera system

Your busy schedule may not permit you to be there to keep an eye on the activities at your home, business or property. Now you can be two places at once. The web/smartphone enabled DVR will allow you to log into the unit remotely to view live footage, review recorded video and change settings.
The 500GB hard drive combined with H.264 video compression technology is ample storage space for this 4 camera system.

You'll get a feel for how quickly the space is being used and you will not have to worry about missing incidents.
SVAT continues to roll out innovations that make do it yourself surveillance systems
easy for the novice user. Many people are at first intimidated by the idea of setting up a
security camera system
. The terminology, the hardware and all the settings may seem daunting to the beginner. The Coaching iMenu installed on SVAT DVR's helps alleviate that anxiety. The Coaching iMenu is a series of help screens
that pop-up when you need them. They give you pertinent information that answers many of the common questions people have when setting up and using their system.
The feature that makes the CV502 DVR system
different than other DVR's offered by SVAT is the setting for recording speed. Most DVR's can be set to record footage at several different Frames Per Second (FPS). Live motion is 30FPS. This would be like watching television. What SVAT discovered is most users never change the FPS setting to anything other than 30FPS.
So most users don't need (and don't want to pay for) the ability to change the recording speed of the DVR.
The CV502 system has all the features of the CV500 system except the ability to record at speeds other than 30 FPS (live motion).

The included 60ft camera wiring gives you flexibility in the installation of your cameras and allows you to increase each camera's range. If you need additional 60ft cable lengths, you can purchase the CVW62.
