Lorex DVR and NVRs use security certified hard drives manufactured specifically to meet the demands of the security market. Delivering high quality performance, efficiency, and reliability, these hard drives are not the standard HDDs that are in standard personal computers. The hard drives within our recorders can be in constant operation and can record and playback footage simultaneously.
Many Lorex security systems use Seagate security hard drives tuned precisely to manage high workloads. Addressing the rising need for higher camera counts and higher resolutions, Seagate security HDDs are engineered with specific firmware that enables high resolution video streaming and recording simultaneously.
Most security grade hard disks feature SATA interfaces to achieve high transfer rates and low power consumption. Hard drives in Lorex security systems include settings that allow immediate recording when motion is detected. This results in more efficient power consumption and heat generation, as well as extending the life of the drive.
