Customer Questions & Answers

can a monitor be purchased or can this system be connected to a flat screen tv

Asked by: mick
Hello Mick< Hi Mike, thank you for your inquiry and interest in Defender. Yes, you are able to connect a computer monitor or a flat screen (depending on the video inputs on your equipment). The DVR has 3 different video outputs: HDMI, VGA and BNC (which with an adapter will run to an RCA video connection). You should be able to connect this system to most any monitor/tv today.

can you purchase longer FT4 cabling

I want to monitor my shop too. I will need at least 150 feet of cabling
Asked by: JWal
yes you can buy more cable, online like ebay, that's where I got all mine, but defender sales more cable too., my shop is monitored also, I needed 200ft of cable so I got on ebay and ordered my cable, it was a lot cheaper there, you can also get adaptors so you can connect multiple cables together.

Customer Reviews

Connected 16-Channel 960H 2TB Surveillance System with (16) 800TVL Camera is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! The security camera system itself is terrific. Very easy to install and the display is excellent. The only problem I had was with the installation instruction CD provided by the company. The instructions were not on the CD! I was able to call the company and they provided me with a download that had everything I needed, but I should not have had to pursue this remedy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My best surveillance camera purchased This is my 3rd surveillance camera purchased and it's the best. I can see what's happening around my block from one traffic to another. I can see when my daughter comes back from school even before she calls me. I want to know how to zoom in and out. Anyone out there with information how to, please give me the instruction. The night vision is super especially where there is no light. It's amazing

Rated 2 out of 5 by from a good product for the money, not so good customer service still dealing with home depot on a bad camera, that has only been up for a week Really good product, except I bought two indoor cameras to go with it, to replace two of the out door cameras. One of them was bad from the beginning. I had to take back to home depot and after arguing with them for some time, they replaced the product for me. I received the new camera, took it home and put it up. Then a week later the other indoor camera went out. Once again I have to take it back and argue with home depot, about how they need to stand behind there product instead of telling me that I need to return to defender. When I bought it through them. Besides that incident, it is a very good product and I am satisfied. Also quality is 800tvl not 1080p so don't expect to be able to read license plates and peoples faces with this product, cause you wont, and there is no sound but you can add your own sound on cameras 1-4 if you buy 4 microphones and different cables that have sound wire.
