Rated 2.5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good system with the right tools The Q-See Surveillance System comes with all you need to get up and running with a comprehensive home surveillance system. The installation is the most challenging part and suggest to only attempt the install if completely comfortable with working in attics, running cables, and overall tech savvy knowhow. I highly recommend using a qualified professional to install these cameras to protect the invest you make with this purchase. I think the previous reviews show the frustration an average consumer might feel trying to complete the installation. The Q-See system of cameras is hard-wired and you must have the tools to complete the job. Once up and running, the system just works. The DVD keeps a running capture of the cameras and provides the ability to go back in time and review footage. There is a iPhone and iPad app that with a little playing around with I was able to get to work - the user experience could have been better planned to really make this a seamless integration many competitors provide. Overall though, this is a great system and I recommend it if you are looking for a professional surveillance system. August 7, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Very Poor Customer Service and Support System I wish I never bought this system. It is very costly and high tech. The system works okay, the day and night image quality is also pretty good. Two cameras came with non working infrared and one cord was defective. The system for getting these replaced was excruciating. You need an RMA for them to process. You also need internet and to make the claim online. When I tried, that part was broken and contact phone numbers are nearly impossible to find. Tech support for trying to gain remote access is almost nonexistent. You wait and wait on the phone, the tech takes info about your system, modem and router, and then, rather than walking you through establishing a connection, they only send powerpoints and other information that you still have to spend hours reading and trying. So far, none of what they sent has worked. Very frustrating and a very poor way of doing business. If I didn't already pay someone to install it, I would take it all and put it back in the box and send it back. I cannot afford to pay someone to uninstall it! Recommendation: find another surveillance system with better tech and customer support. January 7, 2014
