Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 48 reviewers.
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 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good value This is the second Defender unit I have purchased. The first was an SN500 4 unit which I used for 2 years and still have. The new unit is the Defender Sentinel Pro 21160 8 cameras 8 channel 2 TB hard drive. If you are going to buy a security system, spend the extra money and buy a Pro unit. The picture quality is very good in daylight and good at night. The cameras are sturdy, and the cable is fire rated. I have only had this unit about a week but am pleased with its performance. Installing the cameras and wiring requires some handyman skill and tools. February 15, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by great setup This is my second system through defender and it is user friendly and a great product for a great price. Lost my first unit in a lightning storm so I do recommend a surge protector which is the case for all camera systems anyway. Great improvement on the mount options on cameras. (Wall or ceiling). I only gave a moderate rating on features because you have to navigate with a mouse that's baggy on DVR. Still a great deal though. No better deal out there February 12, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Look out violaters! Very impressive! I had compared with various brands, but we came back to this over and over until we went for it and I'm glad we did! The clarity, the material and ease of operation prove this is a quality product! Make sure you have a professional install, because you may need extra wire etc., contingent upon your SQ footage. Thanks! February 18, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by excellent value I am very pleased with Pro Widescreen 8 channel system. When the system arrived the power adapter for the dvr was damaged. Emailed customer support and received a new one within 7 days. No questions asked. Thank you for that. Resolution is good for the money. DVR very simple to operate. Download the manual,then just point and click. February 13, 2015
