  • Q: What happens when the 1 TB is full ? Is it going to overwrite it ?  (3 Answers)

    By Sijad 

    • Best answerThe drive is meant to store your data for a period of time and then the system will write over the oldest data. It's essentially a loop. So if you're getting five days worth of storage, it starts over at the beginning after the five days. If you want it to store for a longer period of time, you have to get a bigger storage device or you have to change the parameters of the recording. You can make the cameras only record when there is movement and then further change the parameters of the sensitivity to only sense bigger movements before recording. Those changes will extend the amount of recording time on your drive. Good luck!

  • Q: Can these be connected to CAT5?  (2 Answers)

    By JOrtiz 

    • Best answerGood Afternoon, the cameras connect to the DVR via BNC cables, which are included with the system. If you would like to use Cat5 ethernet cables to connect the cameras to the DVR, you will need to use a Night Owl Video Balum to connect the cameras to the Ethernet cable and make the connection to the DVR. Also, you may use the Cat5 ethernet to connect the system to the internet. Thank you for choosing Night Owl.
