Monitor up to 16 zones

ClearView's Hawk View surveillance camera kits offer dependable, secure, professional-quality video monitoring for your home or place of business. If you've got a large home or building to keep an eye on, this expandable kit maybe be just what you need. It comes with cameras for eight zones, but you can expand to 16 zones with additional cameras, available separately. ClearView's robust, highly tweakable system lets you view real-time video either on directly connected monitors or TVs (not included), or remotely via the Internet or a local network using a computer, tablet, or smartphone. The included DVR gives you a range of configurable recording options for saving and reviewing your surveillance footage.

Mount your cameras inside or out

The included cameras let you monitor areas in and around your home, including exterior doorways, foyers and hallways, your garage, and more. This Hawk View kit includes four dome cameras (usually ceiling-mounted) and four bullet cameras (usually wall-mounted) for flexible placement options. Both camera models provide DVD quality color images, and they're dustproof and waterproof for safe use in outdoor environments. Low-light conditions are not a problem, either, thanks to the cameras' built-in IR (infrared) emitters, which allow night vision monitoring and recording at a range of up to 65 feet in total darkness.

Highly configurable recording and monitoring

ClearView DVR systems can be programmed to record continuously, or at scheduled times, or when triggered by motion detection. Recording quality is adjustable, with six selectable settings to choose from. Use higher quality settings for better video clarity and detail, or lower settings for more recording time. The DVR comes with a 1TB (terabyte) hard drive which can store up to thousands of hours of video, depending on your settings. It's also replaceable, so you can upgrade to as much as 2TB of storage with an optional SATA hard drive (not included).

Watch all 16 surveillance zones, or zoom in on a single zone. You can configure the system to send you emails to alert you to specific events, like motion being detected, alarms being activated (requires optional compatible alarms, not included), or the DVR running out of hard disk space. A handy pre-record buffer captures between 1 and 30 seconds of video prior to motion detection being activated — great for actually getting a view of whatever or whoever is moving around in your monitored zone.

    Hawk-16 DVR: The component-style DVR lets you monitor and record video (at up to 30 fps) up to 16 channels of video from the remotely-mounted cameras. The unit also has a single RCA audio input for use with an optional microphone. (The included cameras are not audio capable.) The system uses H.264 video compression and G.711 audio compression. You can set up the DVR to perform motion detection recording, scheduled recording, alarm recording, and manual recording. Each recording can be up to 120 minutes in length, with the default set to 60 minutes.

    Monitoring: You can monitor 16, nine, or four cameras at the same time, or any of the cameras individually.

    Privacy Masking: If there are areas in the camera's view that you do not wish to show, you can use privacy masking to obscure those areas. Up to 4 zones per camera can be selected for privacy masking.

    Pan Tilt Zoom: When PTZ-capable cameras are connected, you can set up each camera to pan and tilt up/down/left/right in a constant pattern, or when an alarm is triggered. You can also control the panning speed, zoom, focus, and iris. None of the included cameras are PTZ-capable.

    Network Operation: The Hawk-16 supports real-time monitoring via a network connection. You will be able to monitor on a PC as a web viewer, as part of a CMS (central management system), or on a smartphone app (iPhone, iPad, Android, or Windows Phone). In addition, you can perform video recording searches remotely, and control the pan, tilt, and zoom (PTZ) action on compatible cameras.

    Video Playback: When you are ready to play back recordings, you can search by time, type, or channel. Videos can be played back at normal speed, fast play, slow play, manual frame-by-frame playback, and reverse play. You can switch to the previous or next file, or any file in the current play list. If there are files from another channel recorded at the same time, you can immediately switch to that file. All channel synchronous real time playback is also available. In continuous play mode, the next file automatically plays when the current file ends.
