Laview vs Lorex 8 channel DVR security system
Many people prefer analog security camera instead of digital security camera. Analog security camera connects to the DVR (digital video recorder) unit using coaxial cable. The good thing with coaxial cable compared with UTP network computer cable is that coaxial cable allows you to run as long as 980ft (300m) from the analog camera to the DVR unit safely (free noise). While UTP cable allows you to run the cable as long as 328ft(100m) safely.
