Lorex - NAS recording/back-up options?

Recommended Posts

I am trying to figure out a way to add an NAS device to my CCTV system... I want to use a hidden remote storage for security reasons (concern about the NVR being taken)

 

I bought http://www.costco.com/Lorex-8-Channel-HD-IP-NVR-with-2TB-HDD%2c-8-3MP-Cameras-with-130'-Night-Vision.product.100290772.html

 

the NVR is Lorex (Dahua based): LNR1182 with 8 3MP cams. The system works just fine. What I want to do is to add an NAS (Network Attached Storage) and have video recording back-ups.

 

I want to keep the NVR in place as-is and just to add an NAS. I am thinking to have the NAS in a different room in case someone steals the NVR... I really fear the scenario that somebody steals the NVR - it is not possible for me to secure the NVR better or hide it somehow...

 

What are the options to achieve this? I am new to this and I am learning. Any advice would be greatly helpful.

 

Thank you guys.

I have found out it is possible, the option is called FTP. Lorex confirmed this. I found the following yt video about it.
