Questions & Answers

Can I see the cameras from my smart phone?

Are the cameras powered by the ethernet cable or do I need a separate power cable?

Asked by: Cary
@michael According to Q-See pre-sales support, this is not an IP system. The model number for the DVR is QTH163-2, the bullet camera model number is QTH8053B, the dome camera is QTH8056D, and the auto-focus camera is QTH8078DA. These are all coaxial cables with BNC connectors, not Ethernet. You will also need a power supply w/cable for each camera.

I had a professional company install the cameras and it took 3 guys all day to do it. Then there was an issue with the Pan/Tilt camera not working. My IT professional called customer support and it took 10 minutes for someone to answer, then it took 2 hours for Q-See to concede that it had sent me a faulty DVR. I'm still waiting for the issue to be resolved.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great combination A high-quality ,dependable video surveillance system . With the usual outstanding point of sale service that Home Depot always provides . Do yourself a favor and buy a couple of extra cables .That will make your installation even easier . Be sure to use a monitor with the picture quality needed to really appreciate the quality of this camera .

This security system is way too complicated to use unless you employ an IT person full time. And their customer service is little to no help. I know several people that have Q-See equipment and are still using it, and they couldn't figure this mess of a system out. I literally had our IT guy from work come and set it up, and then one power outage and it's out again. Buy an Arlo. I had their system set up in ten minutes, and it's never gone down. Ever.

As someone who considers himself very tech savy it took me over one year, and many attempts, to figure out how to install the mobile viewing app and to get it to work on my iphone. Took the same amount of time to get the QTView computer app to show the images from my 4 cameras on my desktop monitor. I still cannot figure out how to view the cameras via a web browser. The user manual is so small that the images to show you how to use and set up the DVR need to be viewed with a magnifying glass, and the slick printed pages of the manual are so reflective tha any light source make the page very difficult to read. After one year of trying I have never been able to playback any image past a 24 hour period on LiveView, and have been unable to search for any specific time frame to view an image on a certain date and time. The Start Wizard never came onscreen, and I have been unable to follow the start up directions to this day.

Our dvr was defective out of the box. The fan runs so loud we can't even sit in the same room. After an unacceptable amount of time on the phone and multiple supervisors they still refused to send me a new one until I sent the original back. We have 10 cameras connected to this and paid a lot of money to have it installed. Yet this company wants me to render my cameras useless while I ship the dvr back and wait for a replacement. Asking them to send the new one with a postage paid label is not an unreasonable request. Now I'm stuck with a piece of junk and in a position of having nothing to record if I send this back and wait for a replacement.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from industrial strength This is review is a continuation of my previous reviews of Q-See surveillance products. I started out with a smaller system of 4 cameras on an 8 channel 1TB DVR. That system, while not perfect, was very useful and interesting. So when I got the chance, I upgraded it to this top-of-the-line model. While the smaller system is very much home grade, this one is commercial grade. The DVR is enormous, with room and cabling inside for a total of 8 hard drives, plus two more externally. The case is about 18" x 18", and comes with rack-mounting brackets. The DVR also has the loudest cooling fan I have ever encountered. You cannot install this unit anywhere in your house where noise is an issue, nor can you put it inside a sealed cabinet, as it draws over 100 watts and will overheat. I have it in an unused room for now. With that roaring fan, it really belongs in a server room, not a home. I added six more cameras to my original four, swapping in dome cameras for bullets where they are not out of reach. The included cables are 60 foot, not 100 foot as advertised. 100 foot cables are available at Home Depot for about $15. When I finally got the new DVR up and running, I had an immediate realization about the smaller one, which I had suspected all along. It is underpowered - it simply does not have the processing power to handle 4 cameras, let alone 8; two would be more realistic if you expect it to record. That is the reason for its frequent crashes and disk corruptions. Also, it could not truly fast-forward on a remote connection, it just kind-of staggered. This bigger unit has no such problems, it runs very smoothly through everything. Of course, with only 10 of the 32 channels in use, I would not expect it to be working hard. Surprisingly, or maybe not, both units run the exact same Linux-based operating system, so there was nothing new to learn. The bigger unit simply has more channels. You will need to supply some sort of monitor, and make accommodations for a serious bundle of wires: every camera, the power supplies, network, etc. The DVR software is entirely mouse-driven, and there is no real manual or help. Just poke at it until you figure it out. Actually, that's the best way anyway. With this unit, a good-quality mouse was supplied, as well as a TV-style remote control. Note that after the initial setup, everything can be done by remote, so access to the DVR is much less necessary, and you could even dispense with the dedicated monitor. Some of the things you can set up include: live and recorded image quality, continuous recording schedules, motion recording schedules and areas, users, and much more. There are numerous options for alarms - recording, snapshots, email, etc. Recordings can be searched by time and played back at high speed. There is really an awful lot to figure out, you will spend quite a while learning it all. If there was a manual, it would be an inch thick, and I wouldn't read it. As before, the cameras are terrific. The picture is like watching HD TV, and the night vision is surprising. Motion detection is very good during the day, much less so at night, when the useful range drops to maybe 10 yards. Point-and-zoom cameras are also supported, although I don't have one. The fixed cameras have a very wide field of view, which is nice, but can make setting them up in tight spaces very fussy. In particular, make sure that there is nothing close by that will reflect the night-time IR, as the glare will effectively blind the camera. What seems to be ok during the day can turn out to be unusable at night, and I had to take down and re-install several cameras before I worked out all the problems. To improve the night vision, you could add extra IR illuminators, something I may experiment with someday. Remote monitoring is where the system really shines. There are several Android apps to choose from, based on the size of your device. I imagine it is the same for IOS. On a Mac, you have only a Safari browser plugin, but it works. On Windows, the same plugin works in IE, and there is also a native application. Unfortunately, the latest version of that program (3.4) does not work, but I had an older copy that does. I informed Q-See of this, hopefully it will be fixed by the time anyone reads this review. There is no Linux support. Q-See offers free ddns service through their own servers. If installing the remote app on a phone, unless you have an unlimited data plan, make sure you restrict it from using cellular data ( only Wifi ) or it will quickly burn out your data plan behind your back !!! This feature is not built in to the app, but it should be. You can use NetGuard on Android to do this. In general, Q-See's software, while functional, lacks a degree of polish. For example, there are numerous typos in message boxes, some of them comical, that smack of overseas programmers. There are also numerous little quirks and inconsistencies that you will discover as you teach yourself how to use everything. But overall, it does what you need it to do. Physical installation of a system like this is a lot of work. Hundreds of feet of cabling must be run in difficult locations, and the best camera locations are going to require a ladder to reach. I cut out some sections of soffet and replaced them with removable pieces. That makes fishing the cables and installing the cameras much easier. Inside the (walk-in) attic, I used pipe hangers as cable guides to secure everything out of the way. The cables all collect at one point in the attic, and pass through a 2" hole into a closet. The cameras themselves are weather-proof, but still need to be installed in protected locations, and everything else must be indoors. I don't have any real crime problem, it is just nice to be able to monitor around the house. The night vision has recorded just about every large land mammal in New Jersey except a bear, and I can do without them. They also caught the mailman repeatedly jumping and damaging the front hedge, prompting me to put up a barrier. Holly grows too slow for that kind of abuse. YouTube is full of surveillance videos of deliveryman hi-jinx. It's nice to know what is going on around the house when you're not there. Finally, the system records all visitors and deliveries, so I can see if there is a box left at the front door. There is also no reason you couldn't install cameras inside the house, in the 'public' rooms, and watching entry doors. They could be scheduled to be on only when you are away. I have one watching the garage at present, replacing a separate camera that was in there. It's nice to have everything integrated. Baby and dog monitoring are a few more uses, microphones can be added. Just for fun, I even put a camera on the bird feeder. Turns out, it is the Blue Jays that steal all the peanuts, not the squirrels!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Serious surveillance system with easy installation but poor customer support and software This kit provides all the parts needed to set up an extensive surveillance system. 12 cameras, a DVR, computer mouse, power supplies and wiring. All seemed to be well engineered and designed. The instructional material included a sheet that seemed to apply to a different product, instructions to register for support and a link to a website to get information. I dutifully registered and explored the poorly designed website that had downloads for many different systems but was unable to find anything for this system. However looking at the parts it was obvious how they should be connected, there was no room for error. I connected up two cameras and hooked the DVR to a computer monitor (not included) and plugged the mouse into the DVR and connected the DVR to my router and applied power. The monitor immediately showed the views from the cameras and displayed a dialog to set up the time and a new user name and password. The problem was that before I could do anything I had to sign in. The default username was ADMIN, but I still needed an initial password. It was not written on the unit, as it often is for routers. I tried 'password' as the password- it was rejected. The website did not have the information. I contacted customer support via live chat and was put on a waiting list and given a reasonable time estimate and watched myself move up the queue. An hour later, it was my turn, but instead of getting the answer I was informed that my query had been cancelled. I tried again with the same result. Web searching quickly revealed that the default password was 123456, maybe I should have guessed that. Then I was able to proceed, setup the device and download an app for my phone. To be fair to the company, I subsequently found that the password was on the sheet that I had for another product. Controlling the system with a mouse worked flawlessly, the image quality is good, though the user interface is awkward. The phone app was well designed, making it much easier to zoom in on a past event, except that there seems to be no explanation on how to do it- you have to figure it out for yourself. There are some problems. The phone view always lagged by at least a minute and frequently froze for long periods. So the 'remote viewing' feature is largely useless. I can guess why it didn't work for me. Living in a rural area, we have an upload speed of 500 kbs and a download speed 10 times faster. In a city where both speeds could be much faster, others may have satisfactory results. However I know that with better software design this system should work much better, as I have a another surveillance camera with built in memory that is able to produce usable remote imaging by adapting the image quality and frame rate to accommodate lower bandwidth connections. Despite poor customer service, documentation and software, this system will be a useful addition to my home surveillance system and with improved software and support it will be a first class product.

If I have any complaints, it is that there is very little instructions on how to use the DVR unit. I'm not sure if I have to delete the hard drive after a certain number of hours recording or if it automatically records over itself. But again, in time I know I will figure it out and as I mentioned the system is very nice and easy to install.
