DVR / Camera matching


Standard Member

Have been running some 720p cameras on an old KKMoon H264 AHD DVR that states it will accept up to1080p 2Mp cameras.

Looking to upgrade one of our failing cameras and we can get a 2Mp camera but for just a little more we can get a 5Mp one, eg Hilook THC-T150-M which would seem to be a better way forwards if we later upgrade the DVR.

Will that 5Mp camera actually work and give a usable image on the old 1080p DVR ?

I doubt it. The DVR won’t have the processing power or bandwidth to accept a 5Mp feed.

Thanks, will go for a 2MP instead, only covering about 15-20 mtrs so probably little difference for our domestic intruder needs.
