How many CCTV cameras can I use with this DVR?

Can I access my CCTV cameras remotely?
Use your smartphone/tablet to remotely access your cameras wherever you are by using the web browser to connect to your NVR. This can also be done on your PC and Mac by downloading the live view interface, making watching your cameras a simple task.

How many days can the DVR record for?
The preconfigured settings mean you can set up the DVR easily and quickly straight out of the box. The BNC, VGA and HDMI outputs allow this DVR to be connected to a number of TVs and monitors. Install a hard drive with up to 4TB memory to give you approximately 14 days’ storage on the highest quality setting with four cameras, this can be extended by using the motion detection settings on the DVR, saving you space.
