TVT DVR/ Honeywell DVR
Here, we learn how to set tours on TVT DVR or NVR Tour in DVR or NVR is the set of the camera which is automatically rotated at a given time interval. It means that we can set a camera recording for a time interval and it will automatically rotate to another side for recording.
We know that nobody wants to set many numbers of CCTV cameras if it is not necessary because the CCTV maintenance cost is high. Unnecessary why we have to set the camera and other equipment while we have an option to rotate the camera to another side when there is a need to be surveillance.
So if it is not necessary to record footage any place at any time then we can rotate our CCTV camera at any other side by scheduling time and the camera will record footage of another side for a while. After that, it will automatically turn toward the first side from which it rotates after the scheduled time.
For tour/schedule, the camera for rotating you must have a router connect to your DVR through CAT Cable or NVR and connected to the wifi.
