QNAP already has an impressive lineup in their VioStor NVR series and they’ve just expanded with a new unit, the VS-2200 Pro+ series, available i a 2-bay tower form factor with 4, 8, and 10 channels. The new network video recorder is built around an Intel quad-core processor with 2GHz and comes equipped with 4GB RAM.
The new VS2200 Pro+ series brings a lot of features in a compact size, and it’s a highly cost-effective unit for Small and Medium Businesses as well as Home offices. With support for dual Full-HD 1080P Local Display, built-in alarm GPIO for enhancing security management, QSCM Lite as a free app for centrally managing multiple NVRs, and more, the VS2200 has it all.
The HDMI output allows you to quickly set up and manage the NVR by simply plugging in a mouse, keyboard, and HDMI monitor. Once you have set it up, you can easily monitor multiple IP cameras and play back recordings directly from the NAS without the need for an extra PC. It also features dual Gigabit Ethernet and three USB 3.0 ports.
With the built-in GPIO (6in/2out) terminal blocks, the VS-2200 Pro+ series supports alarm-system linkage between alarm equipment such as emergency push buttons and IR sensors. Once the GPIO interface receives signals, the VS-2200 Pro+ will switch to high frame rate video recording, send an event notification via email or SMS to the control center, and trigger the alarm system at the same time to help administrators respond to events in a timely manner to achieve better security.
With the free QSCM Lite app, you can centrally monitor, playback, and manage up to 256 IP cameras from up to 16 VioStor NVRs are different locations.
