Dahua "Tri-Brid" DVRs (Analog/HDCVI/IP)

According to their press release, these things seem to do it all: analog (960H), HDCVI, and IP cameras with 200 Mbps throughput handling. ONVIF conformance. Plus cloud access via QR code. They do not currently automatically switch input type from analog to HDCVI but Dahua is looking to add it in firmware.

According to Dahua they'll be priced "nearly double" their HDCVI DVRs, though those models are inexpensive, with an 8 channel model for only ~$160.

Is this the most futureproof recorder ever? Take over your analog now, add HD over coax, with the option for IP if you need it?
