Default Poe NVR Camera system on offshore boat

Looking to put a NVR camera system on my 35 Bertram to tape fishing and traveling to the canyons. My question is will the Nvr recorder hold up in the cabin with the vibrations and the waves ?

Contemporary electronics are all solid-state, so I wouldn't expect much problems (other than from humid salty air) if you isolate it from the hull vibrations a bit: e.g. put it on some foam.

But do make sure it has an SSD in it and not a rotating-platter hard drive. *Those* don't like shocks.

Go pro cameras are great for short period videos or for about 4-5 hrs straight. Otherwise you need to use hard wired plugs and change out sd cards all day . I want to mount 4 cameras in different locations to tape when we leave the dock at 330 am and return at 700 pm.

I have been running 3 cameras and a XVR on my boat for about 5 years now with no trouble. Be aware that most POE cameras will need to be powered from a POE switch or from the NVR itself that has POE ports built in. Both the POE switch and NVR require 110 volts to operate. If you want the system to run off of your 12 volt system on the boat you will need to use a different setup unless you run your generator while on the water. My cameras can be powered via POE or 12 volts and my XVR is a 12 volt model that can handle IP, CVI or TVI cameras.

Not true. I run PoE cameras on my boat using a 12V-48V DC-DC converter. I have also built mobile and solar surveillance setups with PoE devices using the same concept. Pic shows one example of a DC-DC convertor powering a D-Link PoE switch.

NVRs are not all solid state (referring to a different post above), the hard drives are still mechanical. Go for something with a WD Purple drive.

Also, FWIW, I don't use the traditional PoE NVRs in my marine setups, but use ruggedized PCs and a standard VMS.

Did not know that a 12v to 48v DC to DC device was available, good to know thanks.

incorrect

NVRs are 99% of the time mechanical, drives like WD Purple

solid state has limitations to read-write, they will eventually no longer be able to operate after too many reads+writes, hence why they are not recommended to be used in surveillance systems

to answer OP's question: i'd use a gopro or cheap dashcam even

unless you really want security cameras on your boat there is no point to permanently mount cameras and install a NVR

The guy just said he wants to record all day with 4 cameras. Dont mess with moving em, turning go pros on and off, not knowing if they're recording or not etc. I also like this idea... Only downfall I see is probably the wiring of it.

I've been looking into this a bit. I see they have some rv cam systems with screens and everything. Seems like they would possibly do what the op wants.

Personally I want to find a system I can use with a tablet or some type of Android display as I also want to use the

Look at GOST or Seatronx for marine-grade video systems built exactly for what you are looking for. Both work well.

I went ahead and bit the bullet on a custom system spec'ed by me. 2 x 1080p 60fps cams and a colorvu "nightcolor" cam for the front. Will need to find a monitor and a small cpu. Probably be at $1200 bucks. Could probably have gotten it done for less if I did not care about 1080p/60fps but handling that resolution and that framerate is pretty cpu intensive.

If you have Garmin screes, the VIRB cameras connect seamlessly to the screens so you can control the camera.
