An intuitive 8-camera surveillance system

This surveillance system from ClearView lets you keep track of eight areas around your home. You can monitor exterior doorways, foyers and hallways, your garage, and more. Its brainy DVR includes a built-in 10" touchscreen that puts viewing and recording options right at your fingertips. 

Record in all lighting conditions, indoors or out

The system includes eight dome cameras that  provide DVD quality color images. They're dustproof and waterproof for safe use in outdoor environments. Low-light conditions are not a problem, either, thanks to 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 500GB hard drive which can store up to thousands of hours of video, depending on your settings.

Alerts by email

Watch all eight 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.

    Overview: The ClearView CBT-08-8D is a complete 8-channel DVR (digital video recorder) system with a built-in 10" LCD touchscreen monitor and 8 mini-dome cameras. The CBT-08 LCD-DVR combo lets you simultaneously view and record video from the eight supplied TD-81 mini-dome cameras. This system is ideal for use in home or retail settings.

    500 GB Capacity: The CBT-08 includes a built-in 500 GB HDD (hard disk drive) that gives you thousands of hours of storage. 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. When the HDD becomes full, the system can overwrite previous video files.

    Operating System: The CBT-08 has an embedded LINUX operating system to maintain stable operation.

    TD-81 Cameras: The CBT-08-8D DVR kit includes eight TD-81 mini-dome cameras. The package also includes a 60' cable (for power and video signal) for each camera. Camera features include:

    • 1/3" HD image sensor with a resolution of 600 lines (color) and 720 (H) x 480 (V) effective pixels
    • IR Range: 65 feet
    • Minimum Illumination: 0.1 Lux @F1.2, 0 Lux with IR LED on
    • 3.6mm lens
    • Dimensions: 4.438" diameter x 3.5" height

    Eight Channel Operation: This LCD-DVR Combo provides you eight channels of video monitoring with audio from optional microphones. The system uses H.264 video compression and G.711 audio compression. The supplied data cable has BNC composite video inputs for channels 1 through 8, and audio inputs for channels 1 through 4. There are video and audio output connections for feeding the signal to a separate TV or monitor.

    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.

    Network Operation: The CBT-08 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.

    Backup: The CBT-08 allows you to backup your HDD via the provided USB ports. You can use a flash drive, portable HDD, or a disk burner. Backup via network download is also supported.

    Monitor Mounting: The CBT-08 can be placed on a desktop or wall mounted. The monitor comes with a desktop stand that attaches to the back. There are also two keyhole slots for mounting the monitor on a wall.
