Just a few of the major features

The Advanced Digital Video Recorder (ADVR) Surveillance system is a reliable state-of-the-art technology that delivers the performance required for commercial and residential installations. It is installed in over 170,000+ locations worldwide. Coupled with expert installation, integration, and maintenance services from Advanced Home And Business Systems, the ADVR outperforms other surveillance systems while remaining affordable.

  • Real-time recording, from 30 frames per second (fps) to industry leading 1920 fps with the highest true 1024x768 and 720x480 display and 720 X 480 full screen recording resolution with built-in multiplexing, monitor output, two-way audio, networking and external device notification and control.
  • High resolution digital video enlargement of the live and captured images. Triple-zoom mode allows you to Zoom-in to the action LIVE. Or set a single or multiple cameras to auto-POP and the picture will pop-up in full screen automatically.
  • Change position/direction while zooming in to recorded images.
  • Our system offers 1024x768 display, 720x768 (PAL) and true 720X480 recording quality.
  • Capable of handling state-of-the-art hi-res camera’s

The ADVR is equipped to store/save 100’s of Gigabytes and multiple Terrabytes of video on the main system, but can be expanded to support up to 233 Terrabytes.

Based on motion and the length of each high resolution recording, the ADVR will provide approximately 30 days of recording. It all depends on the actually size of the saved images and the activity in the view of each camera. The benefit of the ADVR and the experienced Advanced team with regard to our customers, is that we evaluate each of their requirements and areas of concern, and have the experience to know how much data storage will be required. We even offer several online calulators to determine your storage requirements.

  • Specific events that you choose may be saved on to a single CDRW, DVD or our convenient storage shuttle which, if needed, can be swapped out and provided to the authorities within minutes.
  • When significant events occur, it’s not unusual for other video recorders to fail. At that point, the authorities will request to take the actual system to troubleshoot the problem. Our system is designed so you are not left with a dysfunctional system. The storage media is considered an integrated, yet separate storage component which can be “hot-swapped” and replaced with a new shuttle.
  • You have full control over the system, the network services, each camera, recording length, physical triggers, Pan Tilt Zoom cameras, video alerts and more.
  • Smart recording can be set on a per camera basis. This enables the full available recording speed to be allocated only to cameras that are actually recording at any particular time. In this way, you effectively take advantage of the maximum frames per second available on your system, therefore saving you money.

  • Digitally secure watermarking and encryption of captured images, required by law enforcement authorities, provide proven video playback authenticity. This puts you in the clear of potential legal debate when an actual event occurs and prosecution begins.
  • Our storage technology not only provides digital watermarking, but, if needed, up to military strength encryption. Whether it’s standard DES (Data Encryption Standard) 40/64-bit, TDES (Triple DES) 128/192-bit encryption/decryption with throughput of 1.1G bit/sec or higher.
  • Simultaneous audio and bi-directional audio comes with our video surveillance systems and gives you the ability to communicate from your remote location to the main location where the DVR is located.


  • Specifically define areas where recording should occur. This reduces the amount of video which must be reviewed at a later date It also radically decreases the amount of video data storage space required and optimizes the performance of your system.
  • Continuous recording mode option for scenarios requiring recording of subtle or slight movements which most DVRs can not capture.
  • Web-based remote surveillance makes connecting to your system simple. From 1 to 64 cameras can be viewed with the recording captured, utilizing this method.
  • Secure remote surveillance application with multiple levels of authentication is utilized for situations where Internet-based web viewing is potentially subject to hackers “hijacking” information.
  • Audible alerts can be played for each or any specific camera. Each camera may have a different sound effect. Effects can be added as you wish.
  • Trigger external devices including sirens and other physical alarm, door or gate entry to activate as needed.
  • Automatic emailing of video captures sent to your email address of choice. This is especially useful when you are away from the office and need subtle notification of an occurring event.

  • Twin-view with our central monitoring feature allows you to place the video monitoring on one screen and event logging on another screen.
  • Our Central monitoring application allows you to mix cameras at multiple locations on a single screen.
  • Software updates add new features to an already extensive product suite. These updates are automatically applied to those customers with our “green light” service.
  • Time is an important factor in the business lives of our clients. This is why we take the responsibility to work with our customers, in order to make sure they fully understand the system that we’ve designed for them. We also pay attention to concerns regarding specific problem areas. For example, when selecting a lens, we offer our experience and several guidelines with regard to camera angle, placement, and focal length.
  • Each ADVR comes with many significant features intended for growing businesses with long-term security needs. Some of the more advanced features include our Mirrored Server, Central Site Monitor and Central Dispatch which enable you to add more systems down the road.

Which Model’s For You?

Making the right choice for video surveillance is critical. Your investment isn’t necessarily in terms of the amount of money you’re spending, but the life you are saving, the criminal you are catching and the money you are saving.
Typically it takes at least two times for a significant theft, horrible accident, rape or other criminal activity to occur before someone thinks about alarm systems or even better - video surveillance. Alarms may deter some criminals, but pictures can last a lifetime and safe a person’s life or put a criminal in jail.

To determine which DVR makes most sense for your application we consider that first, when we look at TV, our televisions has 350 lines of resolution vs. computers which have 640, 768, 1024 and higher lines of resolution. The ADVR is capable of supporting recording video from the cameras at up to 720 lines of resolution each, the highest quality in the industry. The next concern is frames per second, or FPS. This is the amount of information capable of being received and stored on the DVR from the camera each second. Banks, for example, typically require 4 frames per second per camera. Ours can do much better.

The new AHB-REAL surveillance system puts all others to shame with it’s 1920 FPS rating. From 4-64 Port , There simply is no other product that performs as better.

The new AHB-HIRES surveillance system puts the in a category by itself, with display and recording rates of 120 frames per second, it’s simply unbeatable given the quality and performance of this long-standing product line.

The AHB-2000 surveillance system brings you the utmost digital video quality and performance by offering a afordable salution at a afordable pric

we have over 50 different models and configurations available, call for info.

Finely tuned AHB'S

The AHB products are finely tuned systems which optimize CCTV video streams through the industries leading video surveillance capture technology. The performance of these systems is unparalleled and provides for optimal picture frame rates and picture quality required for casual and professional viewing of critical events.

Each AHB is built with the fastest, yet economical processors, memory and graphics display possible. Once an event is captured it’s stored onto hard media and unlike VHS-based tape systems, the actual storage space is optimized daily and video events are over-written based on a professionally set interval which means there is no rewinding necessary and video surveillance continues constantly 24 hours per day.

Additional capabilities including network and sound are built into every system. More features may be added or changed as necessary to suit your needs.
