The DVR also allows you to easily save any important video to a removable USB drive for storage or playback on a computer.

In addition to being able to control and monitor your system on-site, the QT4516 DVR is easy to access remotely, whether over the Internet or on any of the supported mobile devices including the iPhone, iPad, Android, Windows Mobile Pro & 7 and BlackBerry devices.
