Hello. I just answered. If you keep it hooked up to your internet router yes. However you can play back and watch live action the built-in monitor on the NVR. It makes its own w i f i which connects to the cameras
Yes, if you hook it up to your internet router. However the base NVR unit makes its own wifi I so if you have no need to remotely monitor it you can use it stand alone. That's how I use it, so I don't have any experience with the mobile app.
I don't have a brick house so that's hard to answer, but this does come of the Wi-Fi repeater which will boost the signal. I use this and it's helpful. Additionally you can use other cameras as repeaters. I have one camera on the far side of the house that has a weak signal and I use a camera with a stronger signal and Route the signal through that one. I think the separate repeater should do the trick for you though. You can also get a longer antenna which they also include in this package. You really do get a lot for the money. I have two older 4-channel systems and I had to buy all accessories piecemeal. This has extra camera wire extensions and everything. I think you could get it to work with no issue even with brick.
Hi Rosa. It's an 8 channel system and comes with six cameras, so yes you can add two more. You also have the option of using less than 6 and keeping a couple as spares.
No you do not. I have three systems by Crystal vision including this one. It makes its own Wi-Fi signal from the base and the cameras connect wirelessly to the base as soon as you plug them in to an electrical outlet. The base has a built-in hard drive and you can choose whether recording is motion activated or continuous. Very easy to make backups onto a USB drive. It's a nice easy system. If you want remote access from your phone then you have to have an internet hookup but otherwise you do not.
It can be. You can activate them by motion or record continuously. You can adjust the sensitivity of the motion activated recording also.
Yes. I have three Crystal vision systems including this one and I do not use any internet connection with any of them. The only reason you would need internet is if checking your cameras remotely on your phone is important to you. The base which has a monitor attached makes its own Wi-Fi signal which communicates with the cameras. It's a nice standalone system that does not need to involve your Wi-Fi router at all
I remembered (finally) to check. YES...there is an HDMI port on the back of the NVR.
