Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 52 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Good System for the Price I bought the system a few weeks ago and just installed it yesterday. The camera's are a little big for a house something you really can't tell looking online. The brackets that were attached are more for a business but I made them work by hiding the camera's behind downspouts. The DVR once you get it going is good. I had to unplug it several times to get it to pickup the mouse and remote. The Menu area could be dumbed down a little for someone new to camera systems. The Manual on CD is something I really did not care for. If your using your computer to view the camera's you have to switch the source back and forth just to read it. Overall I'd give the system a B-. February 1, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Cameras good, one lead bad Pleased with the camera, but one camera lead was separated at junction of signal and power leads and was a lot of trouble to repair. February 17, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect for my needs I have had this system set up for a few months now and love it. I installed this in a remote room in the garage I use for business. The cords were plenty long to reach the DVR so it is not right in the room that is being monitored. I have two cameras mounted inside and two outside. Day and night vision are great. Easy setup and no issues. I have even had clients asking about the system. I also like that the wires are mounted inside the mounting arm. I am very pleased with my purchase! January 21, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Good DVR with average cameras DVR met all of my needs: supporting 4 cameras with different viewing options, ability to manage remotely and connect via the Internet, many options to customize such as motion-activated recording, giving names to camera images, etc. The included bullet cameras, however, had a limited viewing angle, and wound up cutting off about 30% of the viewing area being covered. I have come to discover that this is a common limitation with bullet-style cameras, but an add'l reason for my knocking a few stars off was the experience I had when reporting this to Defender customer support. There really wasn't much of any response, and definitely no offer to exchange the cameras for different models. I could have returned the entire product, but that would have involved a lot of work and I did like the features / user interface with the DVR. So, I wound up selling the Defender cameras on eBay, and bought 4 dome (also infrared) cameras which had a wider viewing angle that included the entire area beneath the cameras. December 5, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good quality and excellent choice I tried a few other companies before finding Defender. The install was very easy, picture quality was great, and the night vision was better than expected. My specific DVR actually had 8 channels and I ended up adding in another camera which was also very easy. I have recommended these systems to many people and for the price, they are unbeatable. Additionally, their customer service on any warranty issue has been exceptional! January 7, 2015
