So here's the use case: 32ch IP system terminated to DVR in IT server room, but Managing Director wants a feed of about 6 or so channels in his office but doesn't want a computer that he has to fuss with when power goes, etc. He wants something that is dedicated on and doesn't require user intervention to enter login details, etc... always on and works. Similar request for the security guards in their booth where he doesnt want them to have to enter username/password everytime power goes or it gets disconnected.
My initial suggestion was to install a second DVR (with no harddrive) in the executive's office that would pull a stream directly from each of the 6 IP cameras, but my challenge is I'm not sure how reliable pulling 3 streams from each camera will be to get to the IT Room DVR, the Executive's office, and to the Security Booth.
Anyone know if a DVR can pull a stream from another DVR?
