Rubbish

 

I going to return it next week if this doesn't get sorted out.

Its shinny black and keeps 2 hard drives at operating temperature

Doesn't support many cameras, something learned after you buy it. It likes to disconnect the cameras every couple minutes. The PTZ control doesn't work at all

OK Product For Small System

 

It is an ok system for a small business or home. Take what D-Link reports as compatible cameras with a grain of salt though. The supported cameras is actually very small and not all cameras can fully utilize the DNS-726-4 motion detection feature....

Simple setup; decent capacity

Limited camera support, dispite what D-Link says. No response from D-Link to confirm camera support

Network Video Recorder appliance

 

A single unit will support up to four video streams. Additional NVR appliances can be installed to allow for more cameras (up to 16, I think).

Appliance approach simplifies installation and management of Network Video Recorder for home security video. Traditionally, to support home NVR, one would need a dedicated PC and NVR Software. In case of trouble, you might need to get support from...

This is a new product, with firmware version 1.00. This software seems fairly stable, with only minor issues. RAID support for SATA drives is minimal, with only two drive bays available

Pleasantly surprised by the quality.

 

Opened the box and was surprise how compact and solid if felt. I really like how easy it opened up yet the lid is still snug.

Product Specifications

The D-Link DNS-726-4 Professional Network Video Recorder (NVR) offers a comprehensive solution for displaying, storing and managing video data generated by IP cameras. With remote monitoring in high resolution at a fraction of the cost, this improves dramatically on conventional CCTV surveillance systems. The device itself is compact in size and incorporates a physical security lock. An Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) can be used as an emergency power supply for the NVR, via a USB interface. An intuitive interface accessible via a simple web browser allows for real-time viewing of up to 4 cameras (models from D-Link, Sony, Panasonic and Axis are supported), either on-site or remotely via the Internet. A variety of options are provided, including pan/tilt/zoom (PTZ) control and two-way audio. Each camera can be independently set to record continuously or at preset intervals, or on detecting motion. A dedicated PC is not required. Data is saved on one or two hard drives (3.5" SATA, not included), in a secure database that can be duplicated using RAID 1 technology for complete backup. The video data can be exported easily into AVI or ASF formats. The NVR centrally controls the digital output, e-mail notifications and recording for all the connected cameras. With "Smart Search" technology, a specific area of the image can be selected and searched for events such as motion, with various degrees of sensitivity. D-Link's powerful D-ViewCam NVR software is bundled with the D-Link DNS-726-4. Via a simple web interface, an operator can easily drag and drop a view onto the display window, search or export video, and also back up video data from the NVR to external storage. A total of 4 NVRs and 16 cameras can be combined and administered in this way.
