The SkyHawk SATA III 3.5" Internal Surveillance Hard Drive from Seagate is designed to withstand the stresses placed on it in a 24/7 surveillance system with 8+ drive bays. With support for up to 64 high-definition surveillance cameras, this hard drive can hold a large amount of data and gives you the ability to upgrade and expand your security system.

A SATA III 6 Gb/s interface, sustained data transfer speeds of up to 190 MB/s, and a 64MB cache all help to ensure uninterrupted data transfers. Furthermore, the drive's 300,000 load/unload cycles, 1 million hours MTBF and workload rating of 180TB per year, and <1 in 1014 non-recoverable read errors also help to ensure a long operational life.

Optimized for DVRs and NVRs, SkyHawk surveillance drives are tuned for 24x7 workloads. Equipped with enhanced ImagePerfect firmware, SkyHawk helps to minimize dropped frames and downtime with a workload rating of 180TB per year. It can operate with 24/7 surveillance-optimized workloads (8760 hours per year), is ready to record up to 90% of the time, and play back 10% of the time while supporting up to 64 HD cameras.

Reliability & Durability

SkyHawk's workload rating, low power consumption, and NVR-ready design can help improve long-term drive reliability. SkyHawk can also perform in operating temperatures from 32 to 158°F, while tarnish-resistant components offer further protection out in the field against environmental elements.

Multi-Drive Ready

SkyHawk is built to scale with your needs and performs well in multi-drive systems. Multi-drive surveillance systems can rely on the SkyHawk's RAID-optimized hardware, keeping drives and systems in the field longer by improving vibration tolerance.

1 Million Hours MTBF

A Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF) rating of 1 million hours represents an improved total cost of ownership (TCO) with reduced maintenance costs.

Lower Power Consumption

Lower power consumption means a reduction in heat emissions, which improves reliability in surveillance solutions.

    How to select proper capacity ?
    Read this article about H.265+ compression first.
    Required capacity depends on following factors:
    • Compression: H.265+, H.265, H.264+ or H.264
    • Camera resolution
    • Bitrate
    • Frame rate
    • Scene

    Full HD camera, 25 frames/second, lowest bitrate and best H.265+ compression will require approximately 6 GB/day capacity, i.e. 1TB should be enough to record 160 days.

    In case of 4K camera we could suggest you to use 1TB per camera to record 30 days. Or 4TB Hard Drive for NVR with 4 cameras connected.
