WD Purple Surveillance Storage offers exclusive AllFrame technology
to bring you premium reliability and peace-of-mind when installing your
home or small to medium business security system. WD Purple’s exclusive
firmware upgrades work with ATA streaming to reduce error pixilation
and video interruptions that occur when desktop hard drives are
incorrectly used as storage in security systems. WD Purple Surveillance
Storage is built for 24/7, always-on, high-definition surveillance
security systems that use up to eight hard drives and up to 32 cameras.
Choose a drive that is designed and engineered for home and
business surveillance systems and enjoy the peace-of-mind you can only
get from a surveillance-class hard drive.
Desktop drives vs. surveillance-class storage
You wouldn’t use a bicycle to transport cargo across the country
because it’s not the right tool for the job. You also shouldn’t use a
desktop hard drive in your surveillance security system because it
wasn’t designed for that application.
WD Purple surveillance-class storage has been tested to be
compatible in a wide-range of security systems. These drives are
designed to replace standard desktop drives that were not designed for
the harsh 24/7 always-on, high-definition surveillance environment.
Desktop drives are built to run for only short intervals and are not
engineered to withstand high-temperature fluctuations and equipment
vibrations found in a typical surveillance application.
