Our security cameras are seperated into four different types of technology:
IP security cameras use more advanced technology and connect to a Network Video Recorder (NVR) using a single Cat5e or Cat6 ethernet cable. Thanks to Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) technology, this cable powers the camera while simultaneously transmitting data from the camera to the NVR.
An MPX security camera connects to a Digital Video Recorder (DVR) using an RG59 Siamese BNC cable. An RG59 cable has two ends - one for power and one for analog video transmission. Wireless cameras are also compatible with most MPX security systems as well, which makes for an easy add-on camera.
Wire-free security camera systems are extremely easy to install and operate. Since they are battery-powered, they connect to a wireless receiver attached to a specific DVR and only start recording when motion is detected. With no cabling, Wire-free cameras also offer more flexible placement options.
WiFi security cameras do not require an NVR or DVR. Instead, these cameras connect directly to your wireless network and save recorded footage on a microSD card. As an individual camera they can easily be moved around indoors or outdoors - just use the power adapter to plug them in and they're ready to go.
Certain camera models come with highly useful features that cater to specific security needs.
Our advance security NVRs (Network Video Recorders) and DVRs (Digital Video Recorders) are the cornerstones of any security system.
There are three main types of security recorders:
A Network Video Recorder (NVR) is compatible with IP security cameras. The IP camera captures and encodes video footage which is then sent to the NVR through a Cat5e or Cat6 ethernet cable for secure storage.
A Digital Video Recorder (DVR) is compatible with MPX analog security cameras. MPX cameras record raw analog video and then transmit it to the DVR via a coaxial cable. The DVR then encodes the footage and stores it for safekeeping.
As the name implies, a wire-free DVR only works with our wire-free cameras. There are two main models - one requires a wireless receiver to connect the cameras to the DVR, while the other has a built-in wireless receiver pre-installed.
As the backbone of your security system, Lorex recorders are built for the high demands of 24/7 surveillance.
Lorex recorders come with pre-installed hard drives that automatically store video footage. Once full, the hard drives will automatically start deleting the oldest footage to make room for the newest footage.
Despite popular belief, it is actually the NVRs and DVRs that detect motion. The recorders analyze every pixel recorded, and will notice the moment the pixels change as something or someone enters the view.
Easily check in on your home security cameras from anywhere in the world by connecting your recorder to a Lorex app. These apps also provide you with 24/7 access to video (live or recorded) and easy-to-read motion event timelines.
Program your recorder to send you instant push notifications or email alerts directly to your smartphone or tablet anytime motion is detected on your property. This ensure you always stay in-the-know of events occuring on your property.
Lorex has plenty of different surveillance systems for you - whether it's a small two-camera system or a large 32-camera system.
We have pre-assembled plenty of security camera system options for you. These surveillance systems include everything you need to get your security system up and running.
This type of system is ideal for monitoring high-traffic areas and larger properties such as warehouses, commercial units, businesses, or residential homes.
An MPX system is ideal for urban properties, farms, small businesses and residential homes. MPX systems can also incorporate wireless security cameras.
Picking the right system for you can be a difficult decision. So before selecting, ask yourselves these questions:
The amount of channels a security recorder has available is the total amount of security cameras that a recorder can accomodate.
The resolution indicates the amount of pixels recorded. Wired NVR / DVRs can record up to 4K, which will give you the highest quality video.
Some security cameras have longer night vision ranges than others. Some options even include our Color Night Vision Technology.
Some systems include speciality cameras, such as PTZ, audio, or even IK10 vandal-proof cameras that are ideal for "within-reach" installations.
Lorex offers a wide range of security camera cables and surveillance accessories to meet your specific situation.
If you want to extend the range of your security cameras or are looking to add more cameras for increased coverage, we offer UL certified, Cat5e/Cat6 (IP cameras) and Siamese BNC (MPX cameras) high-performance camera cables.
Our NVRs and DVRs already come with a built-in hard drive for safe and secure local storage. However, if you require more storage space, some recorders have the option of adding an additional hard drive or upgrading the pre-installed one.
For a clean and professional-looking installation, a junction box does the trick. Not only are they fully weatherproof, they help conceal camera cables from view. Lorex junction boxes come in both black and white to match your cameras.
A PoE switch can help extend the reach of your network security cameras and help minimize the cabling. Simply connect the PoE switch to the same router as your NVR and connect your IP cameras to it. This allows you to put the switch and NVR in different locations.
Complete your security camera hub with a Lorex video monitor. These monitors can be connected to any security camera system with an HDMI cable. Enjoy enhanced clarity, accurate color representation and smooth on-screen movement thanks to rapid refresh rates.
Warn potential intruders that your property is protected by Lorex with our outdoor security signs. These signs can be attached to a wall or a fence and are highly visible both day and night. We also have yard signs with rechargeable, solar-powered LED lights for enhanced night-time visibility.
