Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 64 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Defender cameras Bought this system for extra security at my house. So far everything seems to be working like it should. Cameras were easy to install and seem to be of good quality. Very simple to set up and get running but still figuring out all the extra options this system has. Only issue I have had is with my live view from my smart phone it works sometimes but not always. The app they give you to download has poor ratings but when it works seems to be fine. This also could be something I have done wrong, still figuring it out. We looked for several months before deciding on this system. All and all we are happy with our purchase and feel this is a good system for the price. March 20, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by techincal support I recently bought the Defender Pro Sentinel 8 channel. I was having difficulty setting up my computer to view video footage so I sent an email to technical support and received a phone call from Michel within 24 hours. Michel was able to determine that my security setting were preventing the downloads to work and was able to fix the problem in a timely manner. He was very professional, patient and courteous, thanks again... April 22, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fantastic Customer Service I had to watch a lot of YouTube videos to figure out how to set this up. The setup was easy for live viewing but the remote viewing drove me crazy. The first problem I encountered was that the manual goes directly to defender-usa website and the website wasn't available each time I tried. Once I got the manual, I went step by step and it said to scan the QR code on your smartphone for remote viewing. There was no QR code, so then everything had to be set up manually. I had to learn about port forwarding on the router and install 1step viewing on my computer but still couldn't get anything to work. I chatted with customer service and they gave me a few other ideas to try. The next day, Michel from customer service phoned and stayed on the phone with me to walk me through each step. I couldn't believe how quickly he got me up and running. I appreciate such wonderful customer service. April 17, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Defender Sentinel Pro 8CH 2TB DVR (21160) I bought this camera for my new business. As soon as I received the cameras, I hooked up two of the cameras to test them out. They worked great. Since my business is not ready yet, I can't comment on how well the rest of the cameras are or how well the DVR works. One problem is that there is no documentation. I did get a CD that you have to print your own but it would of been nice to receive the printed manual. April 13, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Security at last! I recently purchased this and with each camera installed I still get excited seeing another part of my property on the screen. Would have loved to have bought the wireless but for the price this system will work for us. Although I would have liked to be able to zoom in. Have two more to install then planning on studying how to use it properly. Really looking forward to finishing the installation. April 9, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by More than i expected ! Very happy with this system .Took very little time to run wires,which by the way were plenty long enough. Hooking up all wires to DVR and monitor was a snap...Im impressed with the DVD tutorial...Very helpful with setup...All in All i really couldn't ask for a better system for the price...Thank you Defender . I will always call on you for my surveilliance needs . April 3, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent value! I install high-end security cameras, so I know a little about them. While I would love to have a ring of them around my house, the price of this entire kit cost half of what one of those cameras do. While the video from the cameras are not extreme high-res, they are certainly good enough for home security! I added one more camera from a third party that had a zoom lens for a specific area that I wanted a close-up video of, and Defender didn't offer one. The DVR supports it fine! I love the smartphone support as well. There are still a few things I'm learning, but if you are looking for serious "bang for your buck," this is it! February 11, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Average at best We bought as an alternative for clients going to Costco. We also sell 720p systems for more money. The camera bodies seem to be able to stripped out easy. The cables are really low grade. April 7, 2015
