Tourist-information-symbol-iso-sign-is-1293.png The Gateway records only on motion. It does not use a traditional "block" or "Grid" style motion detection analytic. The Gateway cameras use a "PIR" sensor installed on the cameras. This method is more accurate at detecting motion than the grid analytic method.

Notes

1280px-Question book-new.svg.png The Gateway also has some audible prompts such as, boot up, camera paired, etc.

This system does not continuously record video, it only records when the camera's PIR motion is triggered.


Gateway (RW4GW1) Recording Time:

Statements from the factory:

When triggered 10 times/day/camera, will record 300 days in total. Roughly 30 seconds of recording per trigger.

20GB of microSD card storage space is used for 24 hours of video from one 1080p camera.

This works out to the following: 0.83 GB/hr. for one camera, 1.66GB/hr. for two cameras or...

This might be cutting it too close due to storage mathmatical conversions. It may record slightly less that this.

  • For 32GB microSD card:

31.5GB for 19 hours total video from two connected cameras (19 hours for each camera).

  • For 128GB microSD card (max. usable size):

126.1GB for 76 hours total video from two connected cameras (76 hours for each camera).


Comes with:

  • 4 Channel Wireless Gateway NVR
  • Comes with 2 cameras with PIR motion detection and supports two-way audio
  • The kit comes with a 32GB microSD card. The maximum size microSD card that can be used is 128GB.


1280px-Question book-new.svg.png This Wireless Gateway NVR has no Video Output (no monitor). It's completely controlled and viewed via the "REVO Wireless" mobile app.
Tourist-information-symbol-iso-sign-is-1293.png The QR code to scan for adding the Gateway to the app is located on a label on the top of the Gateway itself. Alternatively, you can scan the network to find it if the QR code becomes damaged, lost or the phone simply won't scan it for one reason or another.


There are a total of 3 ports on the Gateway:

  1. Power (5VDC)
  2. Storage (microSD up to 128GB max.)
  3. Ethernet (LAN for Internet access)
