Pretty good unit, you get what you expect to get for the price. The camera quality is not fantastic but you can get license plates and faces within 50ft. DVR unit does not work well when left in an unheated building in subzero temperatures, it still records but loading is SLOW. I placed a heating pad underneath the unit to keep the temperature up and works better. Things I dont like - at night when recording the LEDs on the cameras will switch on so the camera is visible. The camera mounts could use one more point of articulation to give more options for mounting. Autofocus can pick up screens on windows and stay on that indefinitely. And you can not have the unit on motion sensor and have it on a schedule (as far as I can tell). Set up is super easy and on cables longer than 100ft you do NOT get signal degradation.
Not what i was hoping for
The cameras that this kit comes with are bad... my 6 year old cell phone has better camera! All the colors are off video looks fuzzy static you could barely tell a face and so on.. I would not recommend this the 4 cameras it comes with is almost like a pre 1999 quality I returned mine for a refund.
A Bang For Your Buck!
Good price, easy setup and very economical.
This is a great system!
I have cameras on my front porch, side of the house between me and my neighbor, on my shed out back, and pointing at my car & van. The video quality is perfect for a security camera. I don't need hd movie quality for security, just to be able to identify a face. My side camera is 60 feet from my front fence and I can see well enough to count the roses on my bush. The playback. search,and other dvr settings are awesome and finding a particular time on the video is VERY easy! The only reason i deducted a star is because getting the system connected to a router for internet transmission is a nightmare, not user friendly. I would definitely recommend this system, even if you need help getting your internet connected.
Best Deal I could find anywhere on a 4 cam suv sys
I searched high and low through every retailer I could find. Ended up purchasing this system because it was at least $40 dollars cheaper than anything similar to it that I could find anywhere else. Package arrived very fast, the system was very easy set up. If you've hooked up a DVD player or VCR before then you can set this system up yourself. Plenty of options in the DVR menu for adjusting features such as alarms, and motion detection, camera color settings and record functions. For setting up remote access I didn't even bother trying myself. I called Night Owl's Customer service, granted him remote access and within 10 minutes I had it set up and can view it on my Iphone and online from any computer when I go on vacation. For the price you can't go wrong. If your looking for a low cost Security system you'll be hard pressed to find a better value than this one.
