Packaging and a Closer Look

Packaging for the Helm I5 is quite different than most. Each component is individually boxed, allowing them more flexibility in matching cameras with NVRs. The NVR for the Helm offers branding and an image centered. Down below we see this is a 4K and H265+ solution supporting motion detection, smart playback, etc.

Scope of delivery for the NVR includes the 48V power adapter, ethernet cable, and HDMI. We also have the remote and mouse.

The front of the NVR has media controls on the right side, along with a few LEDs for power and status.

On the backside of the NVR, we have the eight PoE RJ45 ports for the cameras along with Audio in and out. Video outs are the VGA port that supports 1080p and the HDMI port that can go up to 4K30. We then have the LAN port for connecting the NVR to your network and USB port for the mouse.

The cameras were all separately boxed as well and include a user manual and mounting hardware.

Each camera has an aluminum and polycarbonate enclosure; the base is a cheaper plastic that is adjustable in several directions.

The lens of the camera is centered with an array of IR LEDs hidden.

The PoE connection to the camera offers a weather-tight seal and secondary power for those systems without PoE functionality.
