Our take on the Metra Spyclops 8-Channel NVR by Crutchfield's Emily S.
Room to expand
The Spyclops SPY-NVR8POE network video recorder offers convenient surveillance coverage for your home or business with LAN ports for up to eight cameras. Footage can be viewed on an external monitor (not included) or with the free Spyclops mobile app. The NVR has a 1TB hard drive pre-installed, but its two drive bays will support up to 4TB of storage each if you need more space as you grow your system.
How does it work?
"IP" cameras connect to NVRs like this one via Ethernet cables. Known as PoE (Power over Ethernet), this type of connection carries power to each camera as well as passing video signals back to the recorder. PoE camera systems are ideal for installations where longer cable runs are required.
