The differences between NVR (Network Video Recorder) and DVR (Digital Video Recorder) are the cost, the installation, the type of cameras and the cabling they use. Most NVRs are used with IP cameras and Ethernet cables, while DVRs are used with analog cameras and coaxial cables. NVR security camera systems usually are a bit more expensive than DVR. Still, NVR systems enable smart functions such as facial recognition, which tend to have higher video quality, and it also requires easier installation. DVR could be a better solution for people who are working on a budget and have analog cameras or coaxial cables installed. If you are a tech expert and looking for a relatively top security system, then NVR systems could fit your needs better.
