Video security is often a concept that can baffle you, as security companies may charge several thousands of dollars for setting up a system for you. Home owners concerned about intrusion on their property or business owners looking at loss prevention or after-hours intruders can take the time to do a bit of planning and build systems just as good for far less.
KGuard Security, a Taiwan-based electronics manufacturer, has stepped up the level of small DIY devices with tiny Linux-based microPC digital video recorder (DVR) devices. The SHA108 (8 camera) and SHA104 (4 camera) DVRs are more than a multi-cam recorder and viewer, offering a full internet suite for viewing and playback on Windows PCs, as well as plug-ins for Android, iPhone, and Blackberry smartphones. The DVR is even smart enough to be set to email the user if it sees movement when a site is supposed to be empty.
