"Being in the broadcast industry for many years, I wanted a system for home that was intuitive and had great images. Before I hung the cameras, I hooked the entire system up and I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the cameras in daylight and complete darkness. The HD quality cameras turned a beautiful image. The sharpness and color were much better than expected. I was impressed with the way the cameras could switch quickly with different light levels. It was actually quite fun to observe this. I was happy with the low noise level of the DVR and how everything stayed at a cool temperature. The system was recording before I knew it and it was whisper quiet.

I thought the interface on the DVR was very straightforward and easy to control. My internet installation was a bit slow, but I chalk this up to my internet provider’s router.

I bought this system to monitor my home while I was away and I am pleasantly surprised with the product. My only complaint was a new video cable arrived slightly frayed on one end. The cable worked, but could have be an issue over time. I offered this feedback to Lorex and they immediately sent a replacement.

I could have bought any system out there. I thought this one was at a fair price for the quality it delivers. Now I just have to choose between watching the late news or monitoring the cameras for wildlife jumping over the backyard fence. Great product."

Lorex 4 Camera HD security system

Pros: 1080p, 100ft cables, hdmi output, tech support

Cons: could use more than 4 camera's but made do.

"I bought and installed the Lorex LHD1042001C4 system and would highly(!!!) recommend anyone looking for a survelliance system, to just buy this Lorex system. Don't count your pennies here, this system is WELL worth the little extra money you may need to spend, given the quality of picture (1080p) and technical support. Excellent technical support, can't praise them highly enough!! I absolutely recommend this system period. No major issues. Tech support took control over the internet and in about 20minutes, had the system up on my local net AND had remote viewing on my smart phone working AOK!

To give you a little background. About 4 months ago I purchased a competitor's 8 camera system(no names, but they were based in Australia - that I found out AFTER I purchased the system). I had nothing but problems with this competitors system, the HDMI output didn't work and when I called their tech support, it was the typical 'follow a script' tech support. I'm a technical person and was very frustrated with the level of support AND the lack of call back. I finally had to email them to get response, 1 week after my initial issue was found. This competitor's Support wanted to call me back on Sunday night(Monday in Australia) up to midnight my time. Heck, I work for a living...bottom line, the system was bad and I returned it for a refund.

Having gone thru that bad experience with the 'competitor', I put aside the effort to get a survelliance system because I didn't want to go thru that again. BUT...After some research I saw that Lorex was based in Toronto. I'm in New Hampshire and if Tech Support was in Toronto, no more 'Australia' contact problems! So I did a little more research and found the new HD1080p Lorex system and it was available through Costco! This system was great, HDMI output and 1080p picture!! I bought it via Costco, @3days later I had it in my little hands. I tested it on the table to make sure all was working and even put an active splitter(ViewHD 2 Port HDMI 1x2 Powered Splitter Ver 1.3) on the DVR's HDMI output and display on a local monitor and on a 25foot HDMI cable to a large flat screen TV. When I knew all was working, I snaked the cables and installed the system permanently. Works perfectly now for @2+ weeks. I really needed 6 camera's, but made do with the four(4) this system has. I'm hoping an upgrade will be available from Lorex in the future...I'm keeping my eyes open for it.

Bottom line, my experience with this Lorex LHD100 Series system has been a PLEASURE. The Tech Support folks are VERY competent and a pleasure to deal with! Not the 'follow a script' type support at all, rather a person that wants to know how they can help. The picture quality is clear and top notch and night vision works perfectly! If you're thinking of this Lorex system and it can fit your needs, just buy it. You will be very happy, I certainly am!!!"

AWsome HD

Pros: beautiful image quality, great play back over the web pc and i pad, top notch tech support, a snap to set up and use, reasonable price

Cons: not enough cameras, records at to lo a frame rate for my liking

"After owning an older Lorex system (trouble free for 4 years) I saw this HD system on costo's web site and decided it would be great to watch my house in HD. Any intruders can now be easily identified with details of their face. The image is supper sharp and the colors are dead-on. Being a previous user, the set up was a snap. No instruction manual needed.The hardest part was running the cables to where I wanted to place the cameras. Everything else was so easy evan a first time novice could set it up with out help. Setting up internet viewing can be a bit tricky but Lorex has great tech support if you need them. The only things that I would improve on are: an 8 camera system instead 4, the option of higher FPS recording, 5 fps is a tad jerky, 15 fps would be great, cameras with built in IR motion sensors would also be a plus. Of corse these things would add to the cost considerably.

All in all, I am extreamly satisfied with this product.

Very nice set with excellent quality recording. The video is crystal clear. Nice digital zoom feature. It has a wide viewing angle so you can see a large area in one camera. everything is easy to use. thought this system had the cameras with dual BNC outputs, guess not. Remote viewing took a while to figure out but i eventually figured it out. The cameras are fairly large but the build quality makes up for it. The iphone/ipad app is not so great. Very poor UI, slow and buggy. Crashes a lot. The playback feature is not even usable. I would like to see a better app. I might save the other two channels open, incase they come out with an HD PTZ camera. This i probably the best system you can buy along with their HD IP camera set.

I am very pleased with the clarity of the picture, both live and recorded. The night vision is impressive and provides a very clear picture in low light and complete darkness. My only complaint is that Lorex tech support has limited hours and is not available on weekends.

Pros: These cameras have an excellent daytime picture and good nightime picture with good range in infrared coverage. They are easy to connect and the DVR software is well evolved and feature rich for easy review of recorded events.Computer and smartphone access is also respectable and shows very nice video. The ability to filter certain portions of the screen from motion detection is very nice. Cons: The DVR hard drive is a bit noisy making a continuous whirring sound. The smartphone app could use some additional features such as Smart Search and frame capture and email.

I am very pleased with my Lorex 6 camera security system. The unit was very easy to install. The manual was well layed out and provided all the necessary information. I did have one camera that did not work and the company was quick to arrange for its replacement. I am very pleased with the system. It has met my objectives for installing a security system.

Great system, originally purchased an analog system(from a different mfr.)and could not make out any detail. We decided to give this system a chance with HD. So far so good with great clarity. The only drawback is the dvr cooling fan is loud, as long as it's not installed in your bedroom, this is a great system.

This is my first camera security system, I purchased it in July of 2013, after carefully studying the manual I easily installed it and had it up and running without requiring assistance from tech support, except to use the iPhone app. Tech support was very helpful, there was hardly any wait to talk to someone and the system has run flawlessly for seven months now. Both the laptop control panel and iphone app have worked as hoped as well. I could not be happier with the system, its ease of set-up or the quality of the picture I get through the cameras.

Received the cameras/DVR -- everything was packaged perfectly and in total working order. It is important to really follow all directions, but it was cumbersome to have to read the instructions on-line versus a paper manual. It was fairly easy to set up. It does have a GREAT picture quality and the night vision is really good as well. Glad we went with the 1080P on this one. Cable length was long enough as well. Overall, very happy with the product so far and am glad we purchased a Lorex w/6 cameras.

Could any users give some more info regarding how long the 2T of memory lasts before it is written over at highest resolution? Does the system allow some cameras to be action activated and some others to record at full 1080 res?

I'll rate this as five stars if it is at least a month of recordings.

I had an older surveillance system at my house and I wanted to upgrade to HD. As the house was already wired with Siamese cable, the HD-SDI system was a very cost effective way to upgrade to HD, no need for any new cables. Switching out the cameras and the DVR was very easy. Once I turned the system on, I had it up and running on my phone and ipad in less than 3 minutes with the Stratus feature, which I was familiar with and had used in the past. The camera quality when viewing on an HD monitor is excellent, much better than even the 960H unit I had previously. The ability to zoom in is great and provided very good image quality. Also, the HD-SDI cameras have a better field of view, giving more coverage, but you don't lose anything as the zoom allows close up of anything on the screen. As expected due to bandwidth, the quality on the phone and ipad is just OK. You definitely do not have the same clarity as on the monitor, but that is to be expected. Bottom line, I would highly recommend buying the HD system as it is significantly better image quality than other systems. If you already have the Siamese cables run, buy this. For a new install, I would go with the POE system as Cat 5 cables are an easier and cleaner install. Both systems will give the same quality image, and are well worth the slightly higher price than the non HD systems.

The 720p cameras and 2TB DVR works great. I connected the DVR to my 1080p HDTV and the clarity in both the day and night vision views were fantastic. I received several different box shipments and did all of the installation. The instruction and manuals are great but you need some skills in wiring maybe not for a novice. I installed my wiring in the walls and ceilings. I would recommend this system as being affordable with great features and capabilities.

Ordered Product on Black Friday direct from Lorex and saved myself some money. The system is easy to install. The hardest thing for me, was where to install the recorder. You want to find a centralized location to make it easy for the 60' cables to reach. Other than that the HD cameras and the recorder are great, and the peace of mind is invaluable. I highly recommend this bundle.

I haven't had a chance to install system because of a remodel but, I've been a customer for a couple of years and am happy to continue using lorex products. I bought this new system about 2 months ago and played around with it a couple of days ago. To set up all you need to do is Port forward the required ports on you're router and follow the quick start manual. I was remotely viewing the system within 10 minutes of playing with it.

Thank you Lorex!

I purchased the 12 camera LHD182C6 to replace an old system from another manufacturer. I liked that this system had 720P video over analog lines - which is what I had already run for my old system (making the new Lorex system nearly plug and play). Quality and resolution is great. The DVR software is a huge improvement over my old system, allowing me to record continuously, but also be able to search for motion. The DVR cooling fan is a bit noisy, so best to place it somewhere where it doesn't annoy. The camera housings and mounts are slightly lower quality than expected (white plastic), so we will see if they can hold up to the sun/weather. I wish the mounts had ball sockets for adjustments, but I guess once they are adjusted it is no big deal. I setup remote viewing the "old fashioned way" rather than using the QR barcode (set a static IP/reserve the IP on the router, port forward 80 and 35000 to said IP, and used the FLIR app on my android), and it works great. Note that only Lorex cameras work with this DVR (yes, I tried). Overall this seems to be a great system for the price.

Purchased this system about a month ago. Got it installed and up and running. Set up was a breeze. For the price the quality is good once you get in there and tweek the camera settings to get picture quality. The DVR is a bit noisy, not sure if it's the fan or the hard drive making the noise. All in all good system. Definitely better price than purchasing a 1080p digital system. I wish the camera housings were steel instead of plastic, may not stand up to the Texas heat and sun. I do like the fact that you can remove the cameras from the mounting base and thread them into any 1/2" NPT fitting, making for a variety of mounting optoins. I mounted the cameras to water tight boxes and made all the connections inside that box so if cameras do fail I won't have to fish wire out of the eve's to get to the connection.

After a little delay on the delivery process, the system arrived well packaged and installation guides were easy to follow. Images from the HD-SDI cameras were excellent along with a good FPS. Backing up and capturing was good. Only thing I wished on the backup directly from the DVR if you could switch the format from .rms to .avi or other formats instead of using the network interface to do the same. The cooling fan was a little loud but most DVR systems I have dealt with were around the same db. Other nice feature was the ability to add additional storage if you need it. All in all, I thought this is a good system and would recommend it to anyone setting up in a home environment to small business.

The Lorex wireless caemra system is limited in it's ability to give sharp video images day or night (you cannot read a car's license plate). The most disappointing of the features is the very limited distance range that the caemras are able to connect to the DVR. At best, I was only able to be about 40 feet apart. I had to have the inside antennas on a windowsill in line of sight of the caemras. My home is a wood frame structure. The software is somewhat cumbersome in that when you access the List of videoed events, you cannot erase the entire previous day of numerous tapings. You have to constantly use a toolbar at the bottom of the screen. You select the event you want to view from the List then move the cursor to the tool bar to watch the event or erase the event. Then you have to go back to the List to select another event. I may have 400 plus events a night to review. If you want a wireless video security caemra system that is easy to install in a very small area, this product may work for you.

I bought this system to watch the house while away and deter vandals in the neighborhood. Installation was pretty easy for the most part. I have still not figured out how to hook up the DDNS server so I can access from work. The software is a little cumbersome since you have to use a mouse to type on a virtual keyboard. I have the LHD200 series DVR which is the newer system. I am still plying with camera views and settings. Thought I had a broken channel until I realized I had set a "Covert" setting that blacks out the live view. Overall I am happy with the system so far for the price I paid and the quality of the cameras. Customer Service is a little slow but they do make contact and help when I have reached out to them. I would recommend this to anyone interested in a good system that is relatively easy to set up.

I've been using Lorex security systems now for 3 years. One of my night vision cameras in my first purchase started to fail - in that it stayed in night vision mode consistently. A quick call to Lorex, and a replacement was shipped. Their customer service is great! Keep up the good work.

PRO: This is the third Lorex system I have purchased, one for my self with four HD cameras, one wireless one with two SD cameras for a customer, then one more for my self with six HD cameras, but that can handle eight. I needed more cameras, and the four ones I have will work with this system. I am very impress with the over all system. CON: Setting the zones is a great idea, so I can detect when a car pulls into my driveway, and have it send me an email with a picture. BUT it is too sensitive, even leaves blowing across my driveway will trigger it, and a squirrel. They need to provide an update to the firmware that would allow an entire block to be full (Due to a car, truck, etc) before triggering.
