Redundant Hikvision NVR?

So a client has a home IP surveilance system (Hikvision) and they have concerns about the NVR being stolen, damaged etc. They have asked for a redundant solution so they will have a backup of the video. In a traditional analog system we would use looping outs or Ts and split the video to two recorders. IP doesnt work like that so I am curious what others would do in this situation.

Some ideas:

NAS storage elswhere in the house, maybe make this the only storage

VMS to record on a dedicated PC elsewhere in the house

?

Thanks,
