Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Fiestygirl DVR WIRELESS SECURITY SYSTEM
This security monitor works or me. The picture is not as clear as I would like it but I guess because I live in a two story house there is more distance to cover than a one story house. This model lets me know when somebody is leaving the house and approaching the house, it will beep. I am satisfied with the model and feel more secure in my house. It was easy to install. I have it hooked/wired up to my television in my bedroom, but you don't have to have it wired to a T.V., and you can put it anywhere in your house.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sapsucker7 Easy setup
Good product. Video quality is average. Records movement to slowly even with a faster SD card read speed. Excellent Audio sound pickup and also speaker audio is excellent when communicating with someone thru speakers on each camera. Need more recording options with this system. Only can record onto a SD card. Need to have WIFI to PC or to smartphone. For the price this is what you get. Need to have electrical outlet close by each camera. I had to wire two extra into my house eaves. I have knowledge to do this, so make sure you do or are able to dish out extra $ for electrician to do so. Extension cords are not wise. Make sure you mount exterior cameras up high so perpetrators cannot unplug or take down. Also, mount exterior cameras out of areas where they would receive moisture (snow, rain, hail, etc.). A bigger monitor would have been a plus, but again this isn't a high $ setup. Overall, for a first time monitoring system this is great. I am happy so far for last two months.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jdaisy104 Great System
Purchased this system for the Lake House that we are building so that if something were to ever happen while we were gone, hopefully we would have some type of record (nothing yet, thankfully). It was very easy to install, but we still had exposed walls where we were putting the cameras and that made it easy to add outlets for them. Display works great, easy to use. Make sure that items that move with the wind (if you are using them outside) are out of camera shot, they will trigger the motion sensor every time. My only complaint is that there isn't some kind of short battery back-up for when the power goes out. We lost power on a Wednesday one week and when we got to the house on Friday the unit was off. So I guess we need to figure out a way to create our own back-up system to keep the unit on during power outages.

For the value and performance it was an excellent choice for me. Didn't want to spend a fortune for a home security system but wanted one that performed well. This Defender system did both. Needed to do some electrical wiring for the cameras in the exterior of my house but after that the set up was a breeze and the system is functioning better than I expected.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Robbie Camera System is of a much better quality than I expected.
When I purchased this siystem I had my doubts as to the quality of a system selling for this price. To my surprise the cameras are very durable and work great at night. My cameras are set up with very little light showing at night, but the night picture is very clear. I am going to add two more cameras to my system. Great system for the price.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by DanL OK For the Money
This is one of the least expensive systems out there. The installation was easy. It's plug and play. The signal strength is not 100' as advertised. It's more like 20' and even then its finicky. I had to move the camera's around during the install to make sure I had a signal. One spot had no signal but 6" to the left was a perfect signal. The camera's feel solid but the DVR is cheap light weight plastic. I might suggest spending a little more money.

I set this up in less than 1 hour including climbing up ladder to install the cameras.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 2poor Works great for me
This camera system works great for my needs. No running wires from the camera to the monitor. I can take the monitor to my pool in my backyard and see who pulls in the drive and talk with them on the intercom.
