Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Product arrived non-operable Upon setting up the system, the DVR would not recognize the hard drive. Replaced the HD and cables and it still would not work. Had to return. Was very excited to initially receive product; the DVR (minus HD) worked great, and the camera's were outstanding. Night vision excellent, and overall very easy to set up. December 20, 2011
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tech support only challenge The cameras and DVR are very easy to set up. The picture quality is better than expected and I have had no problems using extension cables. Night vision works on light colored objects ~15 feet away in total darkness. As far as setting up online viewing that was the challenge. I would recommend just calling tech support and asking for a level 2 technician. Just make sure you call before 6 pm EST. January 18, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great security system We bought this for our lake house to be able to monitor it when not there. System is great, online accessibility is excellent. Camera's have good clarity both during the day and at night. January 27, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by works great I received this item fast and was in excellent condition. The recipient for the Christmas gift was very happy. January 30, 2012
