Welcome to LinuxQuestions.

Without knowing any details about your security camera system it is impossible to provide help.
What is the make and model?

Since you stated DVR I would assume this is a stand alone unit.

Nor do you include the operating system and it's version

Different OS's do things DIFFERENTLY
