Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 71 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pro clarity & ease of use. Thumbs up! After a long resarch, I bought this system from Defender's website. I was amazed by the quality of the cameras and the DVR. The setup was easy enough for Non-Tech savvy folks. The DVR offers a lot of options to suit any needs. When I had trouble setting up viewing on my I-phone app, Michel from the Technical Support Team was very helpful and very patient walking me through tweaking my PC & router until the app was functioning. Michel also offered tips that I was not aware of. I am very happy with Defender-USA, the product I purchased, and the support team behind it. Thanks again, Michel! April 27, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Product -- Defender 21161 I've recently had items missing from my property. I decided to get this surveillance system because of the storage capacity, expandability, and the excellent reviews it had. I'm glad I did. Running the wires was the most difficult part. After that the setup was pretty easy. I like the fact that I can monitor from my cell phone anywhere that I'm at. My family does alot of camping and this will sure make it easier to FINALLY be able to relax and enjoy camping instead of wondering whats going on at home. I like the extended warranty option. The color of the cameras, day and night, are sharp and clear. I plan on purchasing more cameras in the future to cover any blind spots. I will continuously update this review as needed. May 1, 2015

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great System Just Bought it and I am glad I did. Easy to set up! I did it without the help of my son! May 11, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great product - remote viewing not so user friendl Cameras work great and picture is amazing. However setting up the remote viewing is not easy at all. There is no instructions in the box on how to do this. You have to call tech support. Even with tech supports help it is very entailed. However their tech support team is the best and was able to help me successfully view my cameras remotely. May 4, 2015
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 5.0 out of 5.0 by Defender Pro .. GOOD .. CLEAR .. VIDEO Bought this to add more security to our property with an existing "other brand". The Defender Pro video is so much better than "other brand". Night vision is very good. I had a little problem setting up the remote view, but finally realized I had left off the port number. Added that to the address and it worked beautifully. Smart phone setup was super easy. May 1, 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
