JustConnect 16-Channel PoE Network Video Recorder


  • Product Status (Revision A): End of Sale

The DNR-2020-04P JustConnect 16-Channel PoE Network Video Recorder is an all-in-one network video recorder (NVR) that can record video from up to 16 network cameras1 to its dual HDD storage2. With the integrated HDMI/VGA display output and USB port3, users can view, control and configure the DNR-2020-04P without the need to turn on their PC.

Featuring Power over Ethernet (PoE), the NVR supplies power to up to four PoE cameras, saving valuable time and electrical installation costs during setup.

Powered by an embedded system, the DNR-2020-04P supports real-time remote monitoring and playback via a web browser using the NVR's web GUI. Additionally, support for audio in/out, DI/DO triggering, and external USB 3.0 storage for video export and backups fill the needs of small businesses.

The NVR also includes the option to protect data using a RAID 1 configuration, which duplicates recorded data onto two separate hard drives. In the event of HDD failure, data integrity is maintained on the secondary HDD. The recorded data can be backed up to external USB disks or additional storage locations such as FTP servers whenever required.

The included DCS-260 Multi-NVR Viewer is a comprehensive network surveillance software designed for SMB and enterprise users. Using an intuitive user interface, you can centrally manage up to 128 NVR devices and network cameras, allowing you to efficiently control multiple D-Link NVRs located in different areas.

Users can remotely monitor their surveillance network in real-time through the JustConnect+ mobile app for smart phones or tablets. It offers total peace-of-mind 24/7 for business owners to view live video or playback recorded footage, at anytime, when connected to the Internet.

1 Please see the camera compatibility list.
2 Hard disks are not included. Supports hard disks up to 8 TB each for a total of 18 TB.
3 This port is used for firmware updates, video exports to USB drives, and backups. Connection to a USB mouse/keyboard is supported.
4 RAID 0 and RAID 1 mirroring requires the use of two internal SATA drives. To avoid data incompatibility in RAID 1 operation, use identical SATA drives from the same manufacturer. Formatted drive capacity for RAID 1 operation is dependent on the drive capacity of the lowest-sized drive. Some older generation SATA drives may not be compatible.
