We have learned that DSC PowerSeries NEO Systems and the Alarm.com ADC-CSVR126 Commercial Stream Video Recorder have new updates available. Both updates are quite minor. The PowerSeries NEO update (Version 1.36) can be requested from ADC. The ADC-CSVR126 update will be pushed automatically.


You may recall last week that there was an update for PowerSeries NEO Communicators. Well this one is for the NEO panel itself. It includes a minor fix related to the operation of interconnected smoke and heat detectors and their visual verification feature. Alarm Grid customers can contact us to push the upgrade from Alarm.com. If the update is sent across cellular, then a small fee may be charged by Alarm.com, and will be applied to your next bill.

As for the Alarm.com ADC-CSVR126 Commercial Stream Video Recorder, its new update merely updates the certificates the device uses with the Alarm.com platform. End users should not notice any change in the device's performance. Updates will be pushed down automatically over time, but you can also have the update pushed down manually if desired. No charge is required to do so. For reference, the new firmware is Firmware V4.1.10.190628.

The best way for an Alarm Grid customer to request one of these updates is to email support@alarmgrid.com. We check email from 9am to 8pm ET M-F. And if you are interested in becoming an Alarm Grid customer with access to Alarm.com, please check out our monitoring page We look forward to hearing from you!

There is a fantastic new stream video recorder option for business owners using Alarm.com Security Cameras in the Alarm.com ADC-CSVR126 Commercial Stream Video Recorder. The device is capable of storing up to 16 TB of video footage, and it allows for both local and remote viewing.

Alarm Grid has previously offered the Alarm.com ADC-SVR122 Stream Video Recorder, which was more suitable for residential use. However, the new Alarm.com ADC-CSVR126 is built for commercial use. It can store up to 16 TB of recorded clips. which is perfect for large businesses using multiple cameras. Up to (16) Alarm.com Cameras can be paired with a single ADC-CSV126 unit, giving you the flexibility you need to achieve a complete and robust video surveillance setup.

Remember that using a Stream Video Recorder device is the only way to achieve a continuous 24-hour recording schedule with Alarm.com Security Cameras. You can also set recording based on a customized schedule if you don't need continuous recording. Stored clips can be viewed locally using a monitor (HDMI and VGA outputs) or remotely using the Alarm.com website or mobile app.

A hardwired ethernet connection is needed to connect the unit with the Alarm.com Servers. An ethernet cable comes included for this purpose. For local viewing, the device offers 4K playback when using HDMI connectivity, and Full HD playback when using VGA connectivity. Local display options include live view, video playback, and clip export. Playback speed options include 1x, 4x, and 8x. A USB mouse (included) must be connected for local operation and control.

Alarm Grid offers two (2) version of the Alarm.com ADC-CSVR126. One comes with a single 2 TB hard drive installed, with the other hard drive slot being empty. This provides a total of 2 TB of storage. The other version comes with dual 6 TB hard drives installed, for a total of 12 TB of storage. If you want to achieve the maximum storage limit of 16 TB, we recommend purchasing the 2 TB model, removing the installed 2 TB hard drive, and installing an 8 TB in each port. The two (2) hard drives together (8 TB each) will provide a total of 16 TB of clip storage space.

In order to use the Alarm.com ADC-CSVR126 and Alarm.com Security Cameras, you will need access to the Alarm.com platform for video surveillance. If you have a security system that you want to use for monitoring, you might consider an Alarm Grid Platinum Level Plan (Self or Full). If you don't have a security system and you are strictly looking for video surveillance, then we recommend the Alarm Grid Video-Only Plan. Remember that you will need to register the ADC-CSVR126 and your Alarm.com Cameras with your Alarm.com account in order for them to work.
