This flexible security DVR supports multiple technologies such as analog, HD-TVI, analog HD, and IP cameras. It comes with an IP camera finder tool that allows you to find, configure, and connect to a compatible 1080p IP camera to add to the configuration.
With the lite real-time recording feature (960 x 1080), you can set the recording resolution for each camera and achieve up to 1080p video at 30fps per channel.
When used with 960H analog cameras, this hybrid DVR offers both 960H high-resolution live viewing and recording (33% more detail than standard D1 DVRs).
As well as delivering HD resolution video, HD-TVI technology can send zero latency HD video over RG59 coax or any standard analog CCTV cabling—up to 1600 feet.
The DVR features a powerful, intuitive user interface with a host of smart features, including:
This DVR will accept any analog, HD-TVI, AHD (Analog HD), and ONVIF IP cameras. You can also combine camera technologies to meet your surveillance needs. For example:
Compatible IP cameras will appear on the web browser and smart phone app.
This versatile recorder allows multiple selectable recording modes: continuous, motion detection, schedule, and event. Recording features include event search, event log, and email notification, which you can store on 1 SATA hard drive with a maximum capacity of 6TB.
This DVR supports H.264 and H.264+ video compression formats that help reduce file size, maximize recording time, and save hard drive space.
Free Guarding Expert iOS and Android mobile app delivers convenient remote viewing of live and recorded video.
Note: Certain recording features and capabilities of DVRs, including motion detection recording, depend on IP camera compatibility.

It's an OK DVR at the price. My main issue is with the ability to access security video when away.
There is no iOS or Google Play application for viewing and controlling. To make matters worse, in order to use the web browser interface for remote viewing and control a web plug-in is required. While the plug-in will download and install, it only works with Internet Explorer, so no using Chrome, no using a phone or tablet device as their browsers will not be able to use the plug-in,
The lack of a decent remote capability renders this DVR pretty much useless for me. The other minus is the lack of alarm inputs for, in my case IR motion sensors.
The TVI works well and is crisp the menu system is extensive and the playback controls are good.
IP camera capability is limited to specific cameras and the P2P camera connections require an account with a P2P server service.
Another minus, and I find this all the time with DVR sales, the manuals when they do exist never seem to be for the exact model one purchases. This model is the WL-T8H yet the manual states it is for HRA03 and HR301. It's close but not close enough in some cases.
