Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent System I have just installed this system for one of my clients at his store and will be installing also in his other 6 stores. The unit is very nice, easy to understand. I appreciate this as time is money and this unit was easy to deal with. And the price is very reasonable and the profit on my work is high. October 4, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Excellent product Product was easy to setup and install. Nice to have piece of mind knowing that if one does break in, I will actually be able to do something about it, although one would be stupid to break in when their actions are being recorded. :) October 9, 2012
