Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great System! Easy to set up, Reliable and Good Images These cameras are real outdoor cameras. They have an IP-66 rating and live up to it. They have been out in this New England spring from April to current, mid-June and are doing fine. This Spring it has been very rainy & stormy with a lot of temperature swings from freezing to 90F. The monitor is relatively easy to set up. Small learning curve, nothing major. Being wireless the monitor can be placed anywhere. The monitor has an A/V output that can be connected to remote TVs and can viewed in different rooms. The only drawback is that the monitor shuts off when the A/V jack is plugged in, so a local display is also required. I ordered a couple 9” digital TVs with optional A/V inputs for this purpose. Inexpensive and does the trick. The camera doesn’t connect directly to the internet which is a plus for me, I didn’t want to have to deal with an internet connection anyway. But with the memory card I can check to see what went on using the monitor or a PC. The monitor has a nice set-up to quickly check through the day looking for deliveries etc. I set my cameras out side of my windows I using a block of wood and all weather Velcro. The camera mount is screwed to the block and the block is attached to the house with the all weather Velcro. The power wire is fished in through the bottom of the window and plugged into a nearby outlet. One camera is on a tree. I spliced in some speaker wire from the AC adapter (5VDC output) and its connector and ran it out to a tree. The adapter remained indoors out of the weather. Only the 5VDC runs outside. June 11, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by A well designed system I had a Defiant system, without video. The receiver quit 2 1/2 years after purchase (out of warranty). It took me a week to get a response via email and I finally got a current phone #. They offered me a discount on a 1 camera system. With the discounts, it matched the sale prices. I was very irritated that it broke at 2.5 years. Defiant cameras won't work with First Alert. The First Alert seems to be better quality and have a more user friendly format. The First Alert system is perfectly designed for small business, but is very adaptable for any environment. With the video receiver, I can hide it any place so perps can't find it. That's why I went wireless. Quality made, well designed, and hopefully, lots of longevity. March 5, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Easy Setup and Instructions are straight forward I should have bought the unit with 4 cameras instead of just the unit with 2 cameras. I liked it so much I ordered 2 additional cameras and it would have been cheaper to order it with all 4. Easy set up and the instructions are easy to follow. The only thing I regret and it was my fault I read that I could use it remotely but you cannot be at work and view thru the computer. The description reads: Operate this surveillance system remotely with the LCD screen control (included with purchase). and I thought I could be at work and operate it thru the computer or remotely but you can't. At least not that I can tell. December 24, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by real good I think these cameras are great. You will need an electrical outlet where ever you decide to install the cameras. Also make sure to read the manual step by step it took me a couple of hours till i finally got it. EVERYTHING WORKS GREAT. March 4, 2013
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by goldilocks security i set up the system which was relatively easy. the wireless did well in my old brick walled house. unfortunately i could not get the cameras to record only motion. i adjusted the sensitivity and tried repeatedly. i either got nothing or multiple recordings of no motion. i called and a new one is coming. i hope it works better.
