Tempest 8000 Series DVR


Unfortunately we can no longer generate the Tempest License Key's.
Thanks for visiting our site and feel free to check out our other services.

I ran accross an issue with a Tempest 8000 Series DVR the other day. The issue was with the Tempest DVR hard drive having been replaced. After this, the DVR would boot up like normal but the video was scrambled. There was a message stating that the video would be scrambled until a license key was installed. I figured this should be an easy fix right? Not! After finding Tempest Inc had been purchased and closed within the past few years or so I was at a loss. Google had absolutely nothing on it. I hadn't installed a Tempest in years so I had no idea they shut down. I've been installing Nuvico DVR's for the past couple of years. Anyhow, I made a call to our distributor who made my day. He knew all about my issue and had been sent an email concerning how to resolve this. He was able to get me the License key which worked like a charm! Our customer was very pleased considering I just saved him about $1600 bucks on a replacement DVR. If you have this problem give us a call and we can help.

Please be aware that the site we've been using to generate the license key files has been going up and down sporadically. I'm not sure how much longer it will be available. It may be too late already. If you need a license key call ASAP and we can try to get you one before it's too late! All we can do is try. Please have your DVR serial number ready when you call. Be sure to write it down exactly how it's written on the DVR. Spaces, hyphens etc. Please be aware that there is a non-refundable fee of $100 to generate the license key.
