The Latest Technology
Staying one step ahead of the technology curve…
In the fast-paced security space, there are significant advantages to being new to market. All Alibi products feature the latest advances in security technology – offering higher performance and enhanced flexibility, at lower prices. Regardless of your application, technology preference, or budget – Alibi’s Analog, HD Analog, and IP solutions deliver unparalleled value.
Alibi cameras are engineered with premium components to deliver exceptional performance, quality, and durability. Cameras feature high-quality lenses, the latest image sensors, electronic photo sensors, long-life IR LEDs, advanced heat dissipation, extreme temperature ratings, and rugged housings with pro-seals.
Alibi recorders are engineered to reproduce the high-quality images captured by Alibi cameras, without limitation. Alibi offers recording resolutions up to 960H (Analog), 1080p (HD Analog), and 5.0 MP (IP). All Alibi recorders use surveillance-optimized WD Purple hard drives, designed to run cooler and last longer for applications requiring continuous recording capabilities.
Exceptional Image Quality
Image quality is a function of components and engineering, and is far more complex than a simple resolution rating. Alibi cameras currently deliver up to 700 TVL (Analog), 1080p (HD Analog), and 5.0 MP (IP) – however, our camera image quality consistently equals or out-performs the competitive cameras with like resolutions… often at a fraction of the price. But don’t take our word for it – call for a live online demo and see for yourself!
HD-TVI is the latest in HD Analog technology, and delivers significant advantages relative to other HD analog formats. HD-TVI is capable of supporting longer cable runs – up to 1600’ on RG59, and up to 650’ on CAT5 – and transmits video with ZERO latency! HD-TVI delivers up to 2.1 megapixel images, at significantly lower cost than comparable IP technology, and is as simple as analog to install and operate.
Designed for Simplicity
Because security can be simple… without compromising on performance
We believe that technology choice should be determined by your application and budget requirements – NOT limited by technology experience or concerns about installation complexity. ALL Alibi solutions are designed to deliver a simple experience – from installation to operation. Even Alibi IP solutions are virtually plug-and-play, featuring integrated PoE, IP camera auto-discovery and auto-configuration.
Intuitive User Interface
Alibi recorders feature pre-installed video management software that runs on a stable Linux-embedded operating system. The Alibi VMS is intuitive, easy to use, and offers powerful features, including:
- Intelligent recording

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.

Peace of mind today… without being penalized tomorrow
Alibi solutions are designed to easily scale as your surveillance capabilities, security needs, or budget grows. All IP channels come pre-licensed and fully enabled, so you can simply add a camera in the future without incurring additional fees. And Alibi’s common user interface and mobile applications allow you to update technology without disrupting usability.
Common User Interface
All Alibi recorders feature common management software, minimizing both the cost and learning curve in switching between Analog, Analog HD, and IP technologies.
Common Mobile App
Alibi Witness (for iOS and Android) supports all Alibi recording devices – analog, analog HD, and IP – and lets you access multiple systems at once, regardless of technology platform.
Alibi HD analog recorders accept inputs from both HD analog and standard analog cameras. This enables an existing system to be easily migrated from analog to HD, or for a hybrid analog/HD solution to be installed. HD analog recorders also support a limited number of IP cameras.
Alibi SwitchBox NVRs support up to 32 IP channels and offer up to 16TB of internal storage, to provide a scalable solution for most single site installations. All channels are pre-licensed, fully-enabled, with no recurring fees. Simply add IP cameras to your system as your security needs grow – without additional expense.
ZERO Licensing Fees
There are no fees associated with adding cameras – use as many channels as you want! All channels are pre-licensed and fully-enabled. Simply plug in your cameras – now or anytime in the future – and you’ve got video!
