CCTV package includes monitor, DVR and four cams

LOREX Technology, a global leader in advanced video security products for professional and residential applications, announced Wednesday the availability of its new, All-in-One Professional Digital Surveillance Recording System (model L20WD800), consisting of a sleek 20" widescreen LCD monitor, a built-in high-capacity digital video recorder (DVR) and four, weatherproof day/night color cameras.

The L20WD800 is the first system of its kind to offer a professional solution designed for surveillance that also works as a PC monitor, a digital picture frame and a video display for TV and DVD viewing, with unique picture-in-picture and covert security modes.

LOREX designed the L20WD800 to be robust and reliable for commercial use, yet simple enough for business owners to use and install, with features that allow any user to easily connect, see and protect what matters. The L20WD800 provides simultaneous live view surveillance, real-time recording and playback of video footage. It also offers e-mail alerts triggered by motion for users to be kept abreast of events taking place at their business location. Management is easy as every aspect of configuration can be controlled from any authorized Internet connection. The system is scalable, thanks to advanced remote software that allows users to control multiple systems in different locations from anywhere in the world.

In addition to advanced security, the system boasts an eye-catching, multifunctional monitor that provides multiple solutions for business and retail users. Full-color digital still or video advertising and promotional messages can be displayed and refreshed automatically with no interference to the surveillance setup. The attractive system could replace a PC monitor in a reception area or be placed where customers can see the active multi-camera surveillance system at work.

"Our product line gives both businesses and savvy home-owners peace of mind by allowing them to watch over their property regardless of their physical location," said Chairman and CEO Henry Schnurbach. "We have taken this system a step further by adding multifunctional capabilities, providing practical, intuitive applications for a wide range of business and home uses at the best value."

The heart of the L20WD800 is its integrated DVR and reliable 320GB security-certified hard drive backed by a five-year limited warranty. It includes four durable high-resolution weatherproof day/night cameras and is expandable up to eight wired or wireless cameras. Cameras can be set to record continuously, at intervals or when motion is detected. The system also offers USB connectivity to support additional backup devices for storing and transferring critical data.

Installation is made easy with the use of a video tutorial which can be viewed directly on the system in addition to a graphical quick start guide, toll free access to the LOREX technical hotline and extensive on-line resources at www.lorexcctv.com.

The L20WD800 is currently available nationwide at most Costco Wholesale locations and other Lorex retailers and dealers.
