mydlink One-bay standalone NVR


The DNR-312L mydlink One-bay standalone NVR is a standalone storage device that can record video from up to nine network cameras to its dedicated HDD storage* without requiring users to turn on their PC. Empowered by mydlink technology, the DNR-312L supports real-time remote monitoring and playback via a web browser using the mydlink website or the NVR’s web GUI. The DNR-312L has the ability to continue recording live while a user is viewing or searching footage at the same time. With complete video management, the DNR-312L’s display and playback ability make it a convenient and effective video recorder.
mydlink Technology on your Mobile Device
Empowered with mydlink technology, the DNR-312L enables users to remotely view and manage mydlink enabled devices from anywhere via a web browser using the mydlink website or the NVR’s web interface. Additionally, using the mobile app means you can access and monitor your DNR-312L from your mobile devices.
Versatile Monitoring
Users are provided with a variety of options for viewing and organizing camera footage on-screen. For a system with multiple channels, users can simply drag and drop selected cameras to the viewing area. Camera names and recording statuses are displayed via the on-screen display. A single camera may be viewed full-screen with two-way audio support. Users can control pan/tilt/zoom (PTZ) functions from within the interface or by directly clicking on the video.
Secure Storage
Administrators may filter external connections to the NVR by IP address, limiting access and thus increasing security. Administrators may also choose access privileges for users by specifying the cameras they may access. The recorded data can be backed up to additional storage locations periodically or whenever needed.
Extensive Recording Functionality
The DNR-312L’s clear interface allows for easy configuration including compression, resolution, and frame rate for all connected cameras. Once the cameras have been set up, recordings can be made continuously, or according to a user-defined schedule. The NVR also provides event recording based on specific triggers such as when motion is detected.
Convenient and Reliable
The DNR-312L can manage multiple network cameras, providing direct access to view live video and play recorded data over the Internet from anywhere, anytime. Complete video management and the ability to playback and record new video simultaneously, the DNR-312L is an extremely convenient and effective video recorder. Moreover, the small size and portability of the DNR-312L make it easy to deploy in any location.
Bundled NVR Software
The NVR software bundled with the DNR-312L consists of five main components including a Playback Manager, a Backup System, and a very versatile search tool. The Playback Manager includes a clean and simple web GUI interface that allows users to play, search, or export video. The Backup System is a flexible backup utility that greatly simplifies the process of backing up video data from the NVR to external storage.
