Answer: 
Yes, they require AC power. Wireless in the security system industry means wireless signal like a router (which you also need to plug in). I don't know of any systems that have battery powered cameras, as the batteries would never hold charge long enough for this type of application, nevermind having to always change them!

Answer: 
Mine 'depends' on line of sight. I think there is interference that can be generated by electric anomolies. I have one area I cannot get a consistant picture from - it is through the house and about 125'. Nite vision is extremely limited and has a slight "glow" center picture. Day time works pretty well with un obstructed line of sight.

with a fairly clear view to the receivers(which I have in a plastic container on the roof), from there I'm able to get maybe 300' max before it drops /blacks out and/or has a lot of lag, and gets a new frame about every 30 seconds.

The cameras are going to be on an 85ft boat and the captain needs to monitor all camera stations at the same time to ensure safety. Also, when berthed, the cameras need to monitor the surroundings for theft or other activities.

The recorder is a digital video recorder (DVR); there is no tape. You can back up footage to a USB memory stick or let the DVR continuously loop, recording over the oldest footage when it gets full.

The recorder is a digital video recorder with a 1 terabyte capacity. You have several options for how it handles when the DVR reaches capacity. The most common (and default) setting is to continue recording over the oldest footage.

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 122 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by purchased the 6 cameras. within 24 hours 1 camera stopped working and within a week a second camera stopped working waiting to hear from Defender about a replacement? October 25, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Complicated My Home Depot on line experience was great. Purchased was easy, quickly shipped and no hassel return of product with no restock or return ship fees. Now for the product: DVR difficult to program and set up. Was unable to get video feed from wireless camera to receiver 15 feet away. Has to search for 1800 number for manufacture and after 30 minutes with tech support still no video. Picture set up directions only with insufficient trouble shooting solutions, Not confident in the quality. October 14, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by I wish I had never purchased this product. I bought this product in April because I wanted to install it in my new office. That is completed with all Home Depot Products. I set up two cameras and the DVR to check it out. I am unable to use it because I can't access the DVR because its password default system won't work nor will any of the measures stated in their help page. Defender cannot be contacted by phone, only ny email. I sent that today. If this does not turnout well, Home Depot, Yelp and Defender will be hearing more from me. August 17, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by A Huge Disappointment I had to return this wireless security camera/digital video recorder (DVR) system because it interfered with the wireless internet connectivity in our home. The Defender technical service folks, my son, and I troubleshot this system over a period of about two weeks. We changed our wireless router channels several times and we moved the system components to several places in the house – all to no avail. Making matters worse, when we moved the system to a different location only three of the six cameras’ images would be displayed continuously – despite none of the cameras being farther than 60 feet from their respective routers. Having this wireless security camera/DVR system at the expense of not having wireless internet connectivity in our home and only three of the six cameras’ images being displayed was simply unacceptable. July 19, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Product Easy setup! I've had this security camera system for about a month now and think its worth the price! July 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product. Very easy to install. I am 75 years old and have poor eye sight. This product had the clearest, easy to understand installation and set up instructions that I have seen in a long time. May 5, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Semi Pleased It's an OK product but it did take some time to setup. The online interface is just OK, nothing special. Frame rates fall off depending on distance. Can't make out licence plate #'s on vehicles. Resolution on playback is grainy and undependable. I decided to keep this unit based on the price which is a decent value for what was provided - we will use these camera's in areas that don't require HD playback. April 6, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Don't waste your money Very unsatisfied, no information, no quick reference, no manual. April 28, 2016
