Surveillance Grade Hard Drive
A hard drive designed specifically for use in security camera systems.
Not all hard drives are created equal – we only supply high quality, surveillance grade. Whilst externally they look very similar to the hard drive found in a computer, these are very different internally. Read more about how these surveillance grade hard drives differ from a normal computer hard drive here.
Hard Drive Size Recommendation
We recommend 0.5TB (500GB) per camera when recording Full 1080p high definition video. The table below will give you an indication of the length of time of footage stored at 6fps, 1080p:
|Number of Cameras||HDD Size||Storage Time|
|16||8TB (2 x 4TB)||24 days|
|16||12TB (2 x 6TB)||36 days|
The above table is pessimistic. If you were to reduce the frame rate from the recommended 6fps to 3fps, the Storage Time shown above would double.
When purchased at the same time as a recorder, installation, formatting and testing is all included free of charge. This is to ensure your system is fully functional and plug-and-play when you receive it.
