The powerful Alibi 7000 Series 32-Channel Rack-mount NVR with RAID delivers a professional video recording solution for mid-to-large sized enterprises.
The 32-channel NVR supports up to 32 IP cameras and megapixel recording resolution, along with up to 200 Mbps recording capability (dependent upon camera count and camera settings).
This versatile network video recorder enables you to record video based upon your surveillance recording needs. Choose from continuous, motion detection, schedule, or event-based recording. The NVR features an event log, event search, along with event notification which sends an email or alert when an event occurs—enabling you to take action in real time.
Note: Certain recording features and capabilities of NVRs, including motion detection recording, are dependent upon IP camera compatibility.
This Alibi 7000 Series NVR offers RAID redundant storage options, to ensure your video and data is never lost in the event of a hard drive failure. Choose from 0, 1, 5 and 10 redundant storage options based on settings and drives.
The recorder also features dual GB LAN interfaces for multiple function modes, including: load balance, failover, and independent.
The NVR supports H.264 video streams to reduce your file size, maximize recording time and save hard drive space. The NVR supports up to 64TB of internal storage (up to 16x 4TB hard drives maximum) for ample video storage*.
*Dependent upon RAID usage.
This Alibi 7000 Series NVR uses WD Se hard drives. WD Se hard drives offer RAID specific time and limited error recovery. WD Se hard drives are optimal for mid-sized business and enterprise surveillance systems using 6+ hard drive bays, and up to 64 cameras per system. Choose the hard drive storage capacity that’s right for your application.
The NVR comes with Alibi Central Management Software (CMS). Alibi CMS is a professional monitoring platform that enables you to centrally manage multiple devices, at multiple locations, from a single interface. The CMS enables you to view up to 64 live cameras on a single screen and supports up to 256 devices (such as cameras and recorders) with a maximum of 1,024 channels.
The user-friendly central management software is loaded with powerful features to enhance your management and viewing experience, including: drag-and-drop system and camera selection, customizable displays, device grouping, alarms and notifications, and remote system management.
The free Alibi Witness mobile app enables you to view your live and recorded video remotely—from anywhere, from your Android or iOS mobile device.
Features Alibi™ Power Tools
Alibi Power Tools is a collection of powerful, time-saving utilities for use with Alibi surveillance systems. These utilities are designed to streamline and simplify the installation, set-up, and management of your network, your Alibi cameras and recorders, and your recorded video evidence.
Alibi Power Tools includes the following:
Note: Alibi Power Tools is Windows OSX 7-10 compatible.
The 3U rack-mountable design of the Alibi 7000 Series 32-channel NVR fits standard 19" racks for easy installation.
All Alibi purchases are protected by a 30-day money-back guarantee, unlimited US-based technical support, and a 90-day Warranty.
Hard drive not included. Select 'Add a hard drive' to add a security grade hard drive to your order. Please note: Customer installed components (including hard drives) may damage your DVR and result in non-warranty repair costs. We recommend purchasing a security grade hard drive from us which we will install at no extra cost.
RAID Redundant Storage Options – Provides failover protection. Redundant Array of Independent Disks (RAID) is a data storage virtualization technology that combines multiple disk drive components into a logical unit for creating data redundancy or performance improvements. This NVR offers redundant storage options to ensure video and data is never lost in the event of hard drive failure.
Dual GB LAN Interfaces – Multiple function modes. Offers multiple function modes, including load balance, independent and failover protection. Choose the specific mode you need for your network environment and security application.
3U Rackmount Design – Fits standard racks. The recorder’s 3U rackmount design fits standard 19" racks for easy installation.
Full Calendar Search – Search your video fast. Quickly narrow down your search criteria, selecting weeks or days – to one-minute segments, filtering by user-defined events.
Account Management – Manage users and permissions. Create up to 50 users for the CMS and create and manage different types of users and permission. Restrict access and grant permissions to which cameras users at various locations can and cannot see, for a customized view by user.
Smart Search – Define a search area. Define an area within your image and search for motion only within that area – to quickly locate video of traffic through a doorway, activity near an object, or other events in a specific location.
Video Tagging – Tag an area of interest. Create video tags that represent events of interest (such as “shoplifting”) and search your video library to quickly access all tagged events at a later time.
Two-Way Audio – Communicate back-and-forth. Hear audio and communicate between two devices at two separate locations. No need to get on the phone!
Alarm Control – Receive an alert. Create notification alerts when physical alarms connected to the system are triggered by motion, an alarm input or video exceptions such as hard drive failures.
Selectable Recording Modes – Maximize recording. The NVR offers multiple selectable recording options including continuous recording, motion detection, schedule and event—to meet your video recording needs and maximize hard drive storage.
Note: Certain recording features and capabilities of NVRs, such as multiple codecs and motion detection, are dependent upon IP camera compatibility.
Automated Email Alerts – Be notified when an event occurs. The NVR will automatically send an email alert with a text notification or an image when an event triggered by motion has occurred. This provides a record of the event and enables you quickly to take action when an incident occurs.
H.264 Video Compression – Maximize recording time and reduce file size. H.264 enables the transmission of higher-quality images at the same rate as MPEG4, but H.264 has a higher compression ratio than MPEG4, and can reduce bandwidth and storage usage, keeping file sizes small and manageable.
FREE Mobile App – Access your NVR remotely from anywhere with the free Alibi Witness iOS/Android mobile app.
