TOP 10 Best DVRs in 2019 AND ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW
How to choose a DVR
Recorders vary in price, quality, and several additional functions built into them, for example, a Wi-Fi module, a radar detector or a night mode. The variety is so extensive that buying a good gadget can turn into a multi-day meal of choice.
To find a suitable recorder, you need to take into account many factors. “KP” highlighted the most important.
DVR can cost like a thousand, and 20 thousand rubles and the high cost is not always a guarantee of reliability and versatility. Most often, the more expensive the DVR is, the better the image quality and the larger the battery capacity. On the other hand, many recorders are used with a permanently connected power supply, so battery capacity may not be so important.
The main criterion for choosing a DVR. The quality of shooting directly depends on it, and, therefore, whether the numbers of the intruder’s car will be visible. For the video to be completely clear and in Full HD format, a matrix with a resolution of 2.1 megapixels is enough (1920×1080).
Today’s HD resolution can already be called obsolete, but it is still used on budget models. You can view the captured video both on the recorder itself and on a computer or smartphone by inserting a memory card into them.
DVRs are of three types. In standalone cameras, the screen and the control unit are assembled in one case. Such recorders are the most simple and inexpensive.
In the modular parts are separated from each other so that the camera can be hidden.
The third view is built into the rearview mirror. They cannot be used outside the car.
If the viewing angle is large, the recording will get more of the surrounding landscape. The standard angle is 120 degrees horizontally or 145 degrees diagonally.
It is important not to forget that when the angle is too large, the device can distort the image, making it very rounded.
The screen can be built into the body of the DVR, can be removable or foldable, so as not to interfere with the driver. Its dimensions rarely exceed 7 cm diagonally, so touch screens are a useless luxury.
There is also a small number of models without a screen.
DVRs receive power from the onboard network, being always connected to the cigarette lighter or outlet. At the same time, many DVRs have batteries that can operate autonomously for up to 8 hours.
The battery can be useful if you want to monitor when the car is parked or after an accident in which the electrician of the car can be damaged.
Autoregistrars use standard SD or microSD memory cards, so transferring videos to a computer or smartphone is easy.
It is important to consider the class of the SD card, that is, the data transfer rate. Choose a card for the DVR should be with a class of at least 4 (maximum – 10). If you use cards 1-3 classes for recording in Full HD, the video will turn out intermittent.
There are more than a hundred brands of DVRs, and often models from different manufacturers may coincide.
Popular are Chinese companies whose devices demonstrate reliability, for example, Anytek AT66a (about 4,000 rubles). Russian companies Datacam and AdvoCam are developing top quality recorders. Supra, Neoline, and Artway offer a wide variety of DVRs from cheap to the premium segment.
These include a motion detector that automatically records video when moving in the frame and is able to fix the offender in the parking lot; GPS module that stores the coordinates; built-in night mode, while not necessarily with infrared illumination, which often turns out to be ineffective; audible signals that will not let you fall asleep at the wheel; radar detector, warning of the camera speed control.
Also, there are so-called “hybrid” DVRs that perform several functions at once. For example, universal “sports recorders,” which play the role of a car DVR, and an action camera. They can be mounted on bicycles, helmets and other surfaces.
