  • Overview

    Enjoy the benefits of a powerful network IP video recording solution without the complexity. The high-performance Alibi ALI-NVR5032P NVR supports up to 32 IP cameras, for complete coverage of entrance ways, interiors, and exterior perimeters.

    This Alibi 5000 Series 32-channel SwitchBox NVR features an integrated 16-port PoE (Power over Ethernet) network switch to power up to 16 compatible IP cameras directly through the network cable. Simply plug compatible cameras into the integrated network switch, and the cameras are automatically detected, displayed and configured to the NVR. The remaining 16 IP security cameras can be added manually via a LAN.

    Alibi Central Management Software (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, remote system management and many more.

    The ALI-NVR5032P network recorder is the ideal choice when a forensic level of detail is required or facial recognition capabilities are important. The NVR records up to 6.0 megapixel video to deliver ultra-sharp, high-resolution images.

    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.

    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 24TB of internal storage (up to 4 x 6TB hard drives maximum) for weeks of video storage.

    This powerful NVR is equipped with 16 alarm inputs and can connect up to 16 alarms or sensors (located anywhere in your building), directly to the NVR to be used as an event trigger. This enables the NVR to start recording and can send an alert via email and trigger an alarm output. The NVR is also equipped with 4 alarm outputs to connect to external devices such as a siren or fire alarm. The NVR’s alarm I/O panel enables you to assign the alarm input to one or multiple cameras.

    The NVR also includes a CVBS video output along with VGA and HDMI video outputs supporting up to 1080p display resolution.

    Key Features and Capabilities

    SwitchBox PoE – Simplify installation. The SwitchBox NVR delivers an IP network recording solution—without the complexity. It features an integrated 16-port PoE (Power over Ethernet) network switch to power up to 16 IP network cameras directly through the network cable— eliminating the need to purchase a separate network switch.

    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.

    Technology Agnostic – Support for multiple technologies. Alibi CMS is engineered to support all Alibi analog, HD Analog, and IP recording solutions – delivering unparalleled flexibility today, and as your surveillance needs evolve.

    Alibi Discovery Protocol (ADP) – Discover devices on your network. Auto-discovers all Alibi recorders and cameras on your LAN. (You don’t need to know the specific IP address for each device.)

    View Multiple Cameras – View all allotted cameras on one screen. Conveniently view up to 64 live cameras on a single screen.

    Extensive Device Support – Get support for hundreds of devices. Provides support for up to 256 devices with a maximum of 1024 channels.

    Customizable Screen Views – Create a custom view. Customize viewing layouts and groups – mixing and matching cameras from multiple systems and multiple locations.

    Import Mapping – Create a map of your location. Import a location map and add devices with visual icons to the map. Set up alerts for each device on the map and receive notifications via email.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Instant Replay – Instantly switch to playback on a single camera. Switch to camera playback selecting 30 seconds to 10 minute intervals of recorded video, without having to switch between live and playback screens. Playback is displayed in the Main View and replaces live view stream with the instant replay of the camera, while still being able to see other cameras in live-view.

    Two-Way Audio – Hear audio and communicate between two devices at two separate locations. No need to get on the phone! You can hear audio from a camera and choose to speak back either through a speaker connected to the DVR/HVR/NVR, or a speaker connected directly to a compatible IP camera.

    Alarm Control – Create alerts. Create notification alerts when physical alarms connected to the system are triggered by motion, an alarm input or by video exceptions such as hard drive failures.

    Event Management – Manage events and take action. Manage events when motion is detected, or triggered by an alarm input or device exception and take action. Receive an alert or an email in real-time when an illegal login occurs or an alarm is triggered.
