Hello,

We do offer some DVRs without a hard drive for those who want to install their own hard drives.
This is especially good for those who have an older system and want to use the same hard drive in the next purchase.

No, you don't need a memory card. If you need a DVR with memory you can choose between systems with 500 GB or 1 TB.

Thank you.

Hello,

I don't know what a "securityman" is. Our systems are stand alone units that provide security via cameras and a DVR to record the records.

Hello,

You can buy a HDD from Amazon or any other vendor that sells this type of electronics.
You must make sure that you buy a 3.5 inch Esata drive. which is the only one compatible with our system. You must decide how much memory you want to insert. We recommend not to go beyond the 2 TB.

Thank you.

Hello,

You can program your own sequence of cameras. You can choose to see one at a time, four, or other combinations. We have dozens of How To Videos on our webpage from YouTube that show you how to program the sequence.

Visit our website www.nightowlsp.com and click on the YouTub icon at the top of the first page and it will take you to the YouTube videos from Night Owl. Scroll down and look for the Camera sequence one.

If you have a way of hooking the receiver for those cameras to the dvr's BNC cable inputs, yes. It does not receive signals from them by its self.
