DVR Recording Options
How can I use a DVR with my X10 cameras?
There are a few possibilites:
DVR Wired Alarm Circuit
The VCR Commander can control most devices meeting the following qualifications:
- Infrared remote control
- Recording can be started by a single button press on the remote
- Pressing RECORD again will not stop recording
- Recording can be stopped by a single button press on the remote, even if RECORD was pressed repeatedly
Please note that most DVRs on the market do not appear to meet all four requirements.
If all else fails, you can just leave the DVR recording continually; with multiple cameras you can use motion sensors for switching. We recommend that you set a high timeout value on the sensors.
