This ability will deliver a new level of detail and clarity when combined with 2K resolution security cameras. 2K resolution will add an increased ability to zoom in on distant objects so you have a better chance of identifying vital details such as faces. This NVR can also support a wide range of our compatible 1080p digital IP security cameras, so you can combine 2K and 1080p security cameras within the same system.

remotely connect to your security system from your mobile with FLIR Cloud app

Remote mobile viewing with FLIR Cloud™

The NR8163 is compatible with our new hassle-free FLIR Cloud™ connection service. With FLIR Cloud™ connectivity, you can view your security system from virtually anywhere in the world using a smartphone, tablet, or computer. With iOS®, Android™ and PC options, your security system will always be at your fingertips.

In-app options such as push notifications and instant email alerts for motion-triggered events will keep you up-to-date to any movement caught by your IP security cameras.

Works With

PoE (Power over Ethernet technology) installation for IP cameras

IP cameras with PoE cabling for flexible installation

he NR8163 NVR uses power-over-ethernet (PoE) technology - an all-in-one solution that cuts cost and installation time. Simply connect your IP cameras to one of the NVRs 16 integrated PoE ports with a single cable that provides both power and video transmission. This allows you to position your IP cameras where you need them most without the need to have a power outlet nearby. An NVR like this can also incorporate a PoE switch. This not only allows you to decrease the amount of cabling needed for larger installations, it will also open the door to add more cameras to your security system.

High-capacity, high-efficiency reliable hard drive

Heavy-duty high-efficiency HDD

The 3TB security certified hard drive within the NR8163 can safely store weeks (or even months) of recorded security footage. Engineered for the constant workload required by security monitoring, this HDD can continue to record even while you watch recorded footage. Pre-schedule recording times or adjust the NVR to record at a lower resolution to extend available hard drive space. You can also save storage space by recording only when movement is detected.
