Snap One Upgrades Its Luma Series Surveillance Cameras and Processing

Snap One announced the Luma 420 Series and 820 Series NVRs in 16-channel and 32-channel options with better processing and up to 144 TB of storage — the company is aligning them at both residential and commercial projects.

The new Luma 420 Series NVR expands on the brand’s x20 line to offer 160 Mbps of bandwidth, four HDD bays that support up to 18TB drives, 16-channel recording and support for 12MP cameras. The Luma 820 Series NVR upgrades the processing power and incoming and outgoing bandwidth to 196Mbps, the storage capacity to eight 18TB bays and the total number of input channels to 32. Like all Luma x20 NVRs, each new model offers 4K HDMI output, intelligent analytics capabilities, long-distance PoE with Cat6 cabling up to 200m and NDAA-compliance.

Luma Cameras and VMSPartners can build out the ideal configuration for each unique job using the 420 Series’ 8TB, 12TB or No Hard Drive packages, as well as the 820 Series’ 12TB, 24TB and No Hard Drive packages. The packages with pre-installed storage offer rapid deployment and standardization for multi-site needs while the No Hard Drive packages provide “greater customization and maximized HDD storage potential.” Third-party drivers are supported, but Snap One recommends Western Digital Purple Drivers as they are designed specifically for surveillance. Each NVR features dual ethernet ports for backup connections to protect against network outages or failures, as well as dual HDMI ports that allow for two separate configurable views on different monitors.

The free Luma View VMS software provides a single PC-based interface where users can connect and view up to 256 channel feeds, including live inputs and recordings from various cameras and NVR models. Snap One Partners and end-users can use Luma View VMS to set each camera’s image, recording schedule or password settings. The software is available immediately for Windows operating systems.
