First off, if you do not know what those two terms stand for, here is your answer:
DVR – Digital video recorder & NVR – Network video recorder.
Now that we’ve got those two things out of the way, it’s time for an evaluation.
I get this question at least a couple times a day from several different customers: “Is it better to have an NVR system or a DVR system?” My answer is usually the same. I tell my customers that it really is based on your personal preference and your needs. Why do I leave it at such an ambiguous answer you ask? Well, this is mainly because there are several factors that make one better than the other and vice versa. I’ll cover a few of those main areas today to help you to have a better understanding of the two so as to help your final decision making process.
