The DVR features a powerful, intuitive user interface with a host of smart features, including:

  • Intelligent recording – Define continuous, motion detection, or scheduled recording per camera

  • Real-time alarms – For motion detection, video tampering detection and video loss

  • This Alibi QVR is packed with great features, but our retail customers are especially happy with the Point of Sale integration that helps them reduce shrinkage caused by employee theft. By combining POS transaction data with video, there is an additional audit trail to help investigate fraudulent transactions and theft incidents. Key features include:

  • Transactional data that appears as text overlay on high resolution video
  • Easy and efficient keyword search that locates corresponding video and transactional evidence
  • Universal TCP/IP POS driver compatible with most PC-based cash registers
