If you are looking for continuous recording security cameras and systems you have come to the right place. With theft and burglary happening around the clock, it is important to have the best continuous recording security cameras that can catch crime any time of day.

The best setup for 24/7 recording security camera performance is to use one of our DVR or NVR recorders with appropriate hard drive capacity. Our recorders enable you to capture footage from all of your cameras 24/7 or set them to record motion events. You can use our hard drive calculator to ensure you purchase a hard drive that will accommodate 24/7 recording security cameras for the length of time needed to cover your property.

Our DVRs and NVRs come with large hard drive storage capacities such as 1 or 2 terabytes, and hard drives as large as 10 terabytes.

Qualities of Top Continuous Recording Security Cameras

Recording to your DVR or NVR

Recording video and sound to a hard drive is very simple with our standalone DVR and NVR camera systems. First, you need to decide if you want to record cameras 24/7 or on detected motion. You can do this easily through our intuitive program settings. You can even customize the recording based on the importance of each camera. For example, camera one may be a priority camera you want to record 24/7. Your second camera may not need to be a 24/7 recording security camera. You can choose to set that camera to record on motion only. This will help you save valuable space on the hard drive. You can easily identify the areas and cameras that are most important to you and adjust the camera accordingly.

Recording to IP Cameras with an SD Card

Many IP cameras come with a built-in SD card. Generally, the SD card is 16 or 32 gigabytes in size. Due to storage capacity constraints, SD cards are appropriate for motion event recording security cameras, rather than continuous recording.

To use an SD card for recording, first, make sure the camera that you purchase offers a built-in SD card slot and insert your SD card. Follow our setup instructions to connect your security camera to the network and run the security camera software/app. Make sure you select the option to record to your SD card.

Recording Security Camera Footage to the Cloud

The most expensive way to record your security camera footage is to the Cloud. 24/7 recording security cameras to the Cloud will require a lot of storage capacity and the cost can get pretty high. Although some free capacity usually comes with the Cloud, when you go above the included storage you will need to pay additional fees month after month. You will also need to find a reliable Cloud storage provider.

DVR and NVR recorders by CCTV Security Pros empower you to view live or locally-recorded footage on your smartphone, table, tablet, or computer from anywhere with an internet connection. That’s the same key benefit of cloud-based recording available for free with zero ongoing costs. Choose the best continuous recording security cameras and never pay a subscription fee to see your own footage.
