This is a great monitor




"This has been a great purchase!


The portable monitor looks nice and has a real solid feel to it. It comes with a base so that keeping it charged is easy. When you take it with you, it even has a little flip out piece of the back so that you can sit it on the counter and it holds itself up like a picture frame. The camera also has a good range of motion so you can put it pretty much anywhere in the room and point it at what you want to see and hear.


What really blew me away though was the night vision. I didn't really understand that these things see in the dark. We get to put the little one down and see absolutely everything even when the room is pitch black. Very cool."



Pros: great rangeclear pictureexcellent sound sensitivitydidn't need to read the manual

FANTASTIC MONITOR!




"We are thrilled with our Lorex Portable Monitor! It is a pleasure to use and works beautifully. It's so great to be able to watch the baby from another room/floor. The picture and sound quality are excellent. We researched and tried many other systems and were very disappointed in them. The Lorex monitor is far superior to all other video monitor systems. We highly recommend this product!!"

"Very clear picture, so far no interference with any of our other electronics. Has a good alarm that goes off if any sound is made by your child. Good night viewing capability. Highly recommend this unit. Had purchased a Mobi unit for $99, absolutely worth the extra money to get a Lorex."

Nice Little System


Bought this system for my elderly mother. She really likes it. Very easy to use and the video, both live and playback, are great. The PIR is nice. It will handle 4 cams but the extra cams are kind of high when compared to the price of the system, might as well buy a whole extra system if you want 2 more cams.

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Very Pleased


Installation was truly "plug and play". Power the components up and go. Great depth of field. I have them mounted within 5 ft of each entrance covered. Triggered record works well. Triggering is a little slow, one door hanger presented itself as only the blur of an arm moving out of camera range. Night vision produces usable images up to about 20 feet. No interference from wireless router but one 2.4 portable phone will cause signal failure from cameras when in use. Mounted under eaves and cameras have been through a full week of rain, no problems. Two way intercom works well for folks with good hearing. My hearing is poor and I need to really concentrate to hear from the camera. Camera microphones are very sensitive. We can hear crickets. The monitor screen scratches easily. Mounted the monitor under a shelf as we have cats who knock things over. Cob webs in front of the cameras at night will produce an weird glow like something from ghost hunters. Furthest camera is approx. 20 feet from monitor with 4 walls between. Get full four bars of signal. This is a great product for my application. I will be purchasing two more cameras and two IR illuminators (non-Lorex) to cover complete front and back yards.

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Easy, quick, reliable


Simply put, this system is exactly as described. Yes, you need to run the wireless cameras to an outlet because how else would you power them? That should not be a question or issue for anyone so I find it remarkable that some have commented on that as an issue. I've installed one of my cameras at least 100 feet away, on the other side of a large garage and have the receiver/monitor inside the kitchen and there are no signal issues.



I am very impressed with this system and I think some of that is because after reading a number of reviews (the due diligence anyone should do before making a purchase like this) I had very grounded expectations. To this end, my expectations have been exceeded in every way because you can tell the design and construction was well thought out. For example, when running the power cable from the camera to the inside of the garage to an outlet I was worried I'd have to bore a hole in the wall big enough to run the plug through, but instead the actual plug itself is not attached to the camera and rather is connected to the power cord on the camera via an adapter just roughly the same size as the cord itself and therefore no hole boring needed, only a drill hole the size of a cord.



On other note, the ability to capture images by trigger activated motion is awesome. I was concerned this could be an unreliable feature but so far it is working brilliantly. The rabbit that runs by does not get recorded, but the teenager cutting through and over my fence does. They've designed it well. And, the night vision works great! It is pitch black in my backyard at night, but looking through the monitor it looks like the early evening before dusk.



Again, I'm very impressed.

This system was very easy to set up, once power is supplied to the camera's which was easy to tap into other power sources, simply mount the camera, turn on the LCD receiver and it all sync's automatically. The two way audio is very handy for an intercom and the automatic movement activation works very well.

Lorex Live SD9 Wireless Digital Security System LW2092


I love this little security system. It is easy to set up and the wireless function is flawless unless you happen to unplug the cameras. Make sure you have a good electrician who can install a weatherproof electrical outlet either under the eaves of your house or in the attic. I happen to be married to one so it was no problem for me (smile).  Anyway here is the ins and outs on this system. There is a line of buttons on the right side just behind the screen that gives you access to intercom, the bottom button, menu the top button and the middle toggle guides you around in the menu. So far, I have only found access to the Quad screen from the little remote control. The range of the remote isn't that far away from the screen but who is going to stand in the other room to program it anyway. I want to see what it is doing! The video is all in color with sound and playback can be done in either Windows media player or Quick time. I like Windows media player best. The screen has NTSC and PAL available. You can hook it up to your TV or computer and just let it sit along side if you want or hang it on a wall like we have done. It comes with an SD card but I chose to use a 16GB SD card to hold more video. The cameras have night vision and switch to wherever the movement is detected. We have one pointed at our front entrance and one pointed towards our driveway. We are going to buy two more for the east and west backside of our house. Make sure you keep the camera lens clean as bugs or other bits of trash blowing in the air might get stuck to it. It just needs to be looked at, checked and cleaned periodically as a maintenance routine.



PROS- In color even at night if there is light otherwise it looks black and white at night.

It is wireless, the cameras communicate wirelessly with the screen

It is reasonable in price

The cameras are sturdy

The screen can be used either mounted on the wall or it has its own stand

It is capable of recording in quad mode, however in quad mode you cannot record scheduled recordings

It is dependable

It comes with 2 cameras but is capable of four

It has a remote



Cons - The remote is tiny

You can only view Quad using the remote unless someone knows another way

Works for me!



I am pleased with the unit. It is very easy to setup and just as easy to operate. Camera quality is good enough to give me updates on the animals and barn that I was concerned about. Night vision works well, as does the motion detect. One camera is 350' away behind a barn wall and I still get signal to the unit. I had to put the unit up higher to achieve that, but that was no problem. Two months of 24/7 operation and the only failure was the memory chip which I wanted to upgrade anyway. For the cost and ease of setup I would recommend this unit.

Lorex LIVE SD9 Wireless Digital Security System- 



Easy setup, easy recording, good picture quality, day and night. I like the fact it goes to a SD card and not to a DVD. Easy to review and format. It does only record one camera at a time, but so far that has been more than adequate. Others have mentioned the remote is a bit flimsy, but I have had no problem with it. It would have been nice to have one a bit sturdier, but it works well. For the price it is the best deal that I have found... you will not be disappointed.

I bought a 4-cam wireless system. 2 of the cams had to be "paired" to connect with the receiver/monitor. With the clear directions that came with the bundle, this was a piece of cake. The cams are mounted outdoors, up to 150 feet from the receiver/monitor. I am getting solid signal. The quality of the pictures is surprisingly good -- clear, crisp images. The microphones on the cams are sensitive, so pick up ambient sound well. Motion detection with subsequent recording to SD card in the monitor is excellent. As suggested in the directions, all my cams are partially protected from the weather, mounted under eaves. One is mounted in an old bird house I modified. These cams should be protected: better termed weather-resistant, rather than weatherproof. But this was clearly disclosed in the literature that came with the system.
Overall, I am very favorably impressed with this system. For the price, and I compared many other makes and models, this setup is next to impossible to beat.

This is proving to be a great monitoring system for our home. We had it professionally installed (but probably could have done it ourselves). The licensed installers give it high marks as well!

One of the delivered cameras was not able to pair. However, Lorex quickly sent a free replacement which works fine.

High quality, great customer support, gets 5 STARS EVERY TIME!

I have to say that overall, I'm happy with this unit. Had to wire new outlets to the areas were I wanted the carmeras, But once that was done, the carmeras and entire system installation and system start up was very easy. The day/night picture quality is excellent and except for that 1-2 second delay before the motion detection activates, I am pretty happy with that too! I have to say that I was very impressed with the detection range of the carmeras. Even though the manual says it has a 21ft. max. motion detection range, I found it records motion up to appox. 26 feet !!! This made me very happy. The only drawback I feel the system has is that when you play recorded video, the movement of a car, or person walking plays back in a staggered or slow frame by frame motion. That is to say there's a small delay between the frames of the recorded video. One of the reviews I read said that they were happy with the fact that the reciever was portable!! I as yet have to find that to be so with my LW491.

We've just joined the 21st century, what a great surprise!

We previously owned a small wired B&W camera and monitor, which was always snowy and not reliable, but that was the way back then. It finally died and went to the trash, that was before the thought of recycling. We always missed the cameras. We live in the country, and are blind sided to the road, driveway and front door, without walking outside. After twice people were knocking at our door, without us having any advanced warning, we decided to get another security camera system. We spent several weeks searching systems, both on the Internet and at several stores when we got into town. We finally decided on this Lorex 4 camera system, and can't be happier. It was very easy to set up and install. It took about two hours, much of the time installing two cameras moving a ladder to install under tractor shed roof.
We now have camera views of our road, drive, both front and rear decks, along with our vehicles. The pictures are crystal clear, audio is remarkable even at distances. There appears to be no interference from our other electronics. Again we could not be more satisfied, knowing we made the right with this purchase.

The cameras are so clear, not at all like our previous system from another company. It was easy to install and also easy to understand the instructions. We are happy that we purchased it and will h9ighly recommend this product to others.

My first encounter with Lorex was while doing a side job for a company who already had a DVR and Wired Lorex camera's installed. They needed more camera's wired up. I loved what I saw. Then when I saw that Lorex came out with wireless for the home I knew this is what I wanted.

I bought the 4 wireless camera system with 9"lcd unit. When the system first arrived, I did have some problems with the main unit. After following the Return procedures, I received my replacement unit. All is well. I love it. In fact, I am going to Florida to install one of these same wireless units for my 82 year old mother as a compliment to her security system. It certainly brings peace of mind and the price is very reasonable considering all this thing can do. I didn't expect it to be professional like the one I worked on, but I was pleasantly surprised at its features for a home system. I recommend this company and all their products for business or for the home.

I was quite pleased with the speed that I received my order. It was very easy to install and the reception is fantastic, I have 4 cameras and have placed them around my house and in the garage. My neighbour came over to see them and was quite impressed with the clarity of the video and the having the 2-way speaker system is a big bonus. After using this system for the last 5 days and going through the manual I am very pleased that I chose Lorex, I would advise any of my friends to do the same if they are in the market for a security camera system.

Just love our new Lorex Wireless home security camera system - 4 outdoor cameras and monitor, LW491. So easy to set up and start watching our home. The monitor is amazing. So clear even at night. We did need to order antennas for the two cameras in the back of our doublewide. We can move monitor and they all work great. But we want it in the living room. If we ever need another one we will buy this again!! Great. Price too.

This has been a wonderful way to monitor our new litters of kittens! We often have two litters at a time and can place two monitors (placed in different directions) with each of the litters. We also use it to monitor pregnant cats who are due to have their kittens so we can be there once they begin to go into labor. An invaluable system. Images are clear and we can switch from one camera to another. It was worth the expense. Good quality for the price.

To all the people complaining about the picture quality this is all you going to get for this price, cable coming from cameras to inlets are too short so i spent extra 40$ on cable extension on eBay( 50ft of extension cable for each camera, i have 4 so i purchased 200ft total), now instead of 10ft cord that comes with camera i get 60ft cord, and to all people thinking that this is wireless camera, it is not you still have to plug camera to the power. Wireless means its wireless between receiver and camera. I'm running 32 GB SD-card and i get about 2 days worth of continues recording. It has built in microphone and it works very well. My rating is 5 stars based on my needs.

Wow, I hestitated on the lorex due to price being higher, but reading reviews on lorex and other brands one thing stood out, quality and ease of setup. My price range was a cheaper system but the reviews said need to be IT Manager to setup that difficult. How sweet it was to get the lorex at a discount on their website, so so simple to set up and get running. plug in camera, turn on monitor oh yea we already paired the two cameras that come with it...wow. 5 minutes and i was viewing and recording. Video quality is great, audio quality great.did not realize it was there till i heard it. You cant go wrong with this unit.

Very easy to setup. Took more time to see how I wanted to set the cameras than the installation of the cameras. Screen pic's are excellent and easy to setup the screen for your viewing. Looked for a few weeks at the different systems that stores had to offer and found the one I finally wanted at Lorex. Couldn't be happier with the whole system and how fast it arrived after I ordered the LW491 system. Thanks Lorex.

We purchased this system to monitor both indoors and outdoors. Love that I can see cars that pull in to my driveway when I am working in my basement... Love that I can 'talk' to whoever is in my driveway through the monitor. The picture quality is great, very easy to use. We did have a glitch with our monitor, contacted customer service and they immediately sent out a replacement! Great System backed by Great Customer service. Highly Recommend.

This newest Lorex wireless 4-camera security package is the second system that I have purchased within the last two years. I installed the first camera system on the exterior of our home in Woodstock, Georgia. It performed flawlessly, produced a fantastic quality picture, and was rather easy to install. We recently relocated to Bradenton, Florida and I again installed an updated version of the identical system used in Ga. Same comments as above. A great quality system that is easy to install and operate. Well worth the money for complete security....Bob S.

Peace of Mind

Now I am able to see what's going on outside of our home without going outside. I wired in the four cameras under the eve of the house. It took a weekend and an extra run to the hardware store to get everything set up how we wanted but now that it is in we are very happy with the results.

At night we can see all the way back to our detached garage which is 40+ feet behind the house and we can see all the way to our mailbox which is across the street. During the day we can see even more.

I like that in one of the record modes you can review each camera separately. In another mode it will record continuously but will make 10 minute files for you to review on your computer.

It is really simple to use and pretty easy to set up, much easier than an old system that we had where we had to run the power/video cables to each camera and then to the monitor in the house. With this system you do need to run the power to the cameras (weatherproofed cable stapled under the eves with a plug spliced in at the ends and set inside a weatherproof box) but you don't have to cut holes in your walls to pull the cables to the monitor/recorder.

I am pleased with this system and how well it works for us. I have already recommended it to friends and coworkers!

Great system, I use it to monitor my 86 and 91 year old in-laws who reside with myself and their daughter. They are ill and require constant attention. The system works great both day and night. the intercom system within it works great, this way my wife and I do not have to run up and down the stairs to check on them. During the night we can simply check on them should we here any noise. I wish it had a battery back up system to make it more portable so we could move it from room to room during the day as we go about our daily items. This is the second Lorex system I have. I also have a full exterior system to watch the outside of my home, I have had it for 4 years now with no problems or issues with it. I would recommend the product.

COUNTRY BOY

Date : December 12, 2013

I bought this product after reviewing many others. I found it easy to get it up and running right out of the box. The picture is clear during the day and has a clear range at night of about 20-40 feet only. Can see all 4 cameras on one screen or rotate through each one at a time on the 7 inch screen. I bought to view and not so much record or take still shots. So, I haven't really messed with the recording options much. Overall, good setup and cameras seem well built. The cord was about 6 to 7 feet long. The plug is kinda large so if you have an outdoor receptacle, you may have some trouble getting two cameras plugs up in one receptacle. Wire is thin and black, doesn't match white siding much but can be hidden in most cases. I have not messed with the CD or software much. LCD is touch sensative and can upload pictures to act as picture frame. Picks up well through the walls. I have my cameras on four corners with strong signal. When you lose power, you may have to reset the cameras individually. Not pleasant getting ladder out each time. But has a clear picture during the day for 50 yards or so. Hope this helps.

Worth The Money$$

Great Product for the price! Took me 8 hours to setup outdoor mainly because there was no outlets to plug the camera where I wanted. The whole camera and electrical work was done under a Grand. Other price quotes we got was over $5K. Definitely recommend to everyone who needs their house protected with this great system. Very easy to install, plug and play as it states.
Only downfall I see is that the LCD monitor screen should also have plug less capabilities. This will be tough to monitor when power goes out. Surpirsed that they did not think of putting a back-up battery compartment so it can be used as hand held. Never the less, does the work I need with great day/night time picture quality and built in speaker.

I am now considering buying another set to monitor the inside of the house.
The sensitivity for motion recording is great and the night recording is just what I wanted you can see everything. Having it's own monitor and being wireless is good because you can move the monitor to where ever you want anytime.

We love being able to "see" what is going on in the neighborhood, and feel much safer knowing our property is being protected with this camera system. We also love the audio feature with these cameras. The video is crisp and clear, and the audio is also very clear. We have one camera installed in a metal pole barn that is about 100 feet away from the receiver, and the reception is still great. We could not be more pleased with our purchase. Thank you Lorex.

I ordered and received the LW491-4 camera unit- in just a few days. It was actually less expensive than purchasing on Amazon.
I was able to hook up 2 of the cameras myself with no problem. Cameras 1 and 2 pair easily. I need an electrician to hook up a couple outlets where there are none to install the other 2 cameras.
The video display is excellent quality. Displaying 4 cameras at one time will show a picture smaller than desirable but in the rotating single camera mode will be OK. I also purchased a 32 GB - SD card because the 2 GB only will store about 3 hours before overwriting.
I have had no problems mounting the 2 units although I wish the anchoring screws were longer and the ribbed anchors a different design. You can easily swap to a different one if you want to.
Thus far I am happy with my purchase and would recommend the product. I also have a wired security system and this wireless is much easier to use.

Monitor located the installed cameras almost instantly--plug and play worked well. Did have a glitch and contacted tech support for assistance--they were very helpful walking my through diagnostic and rule-out procedures. Tech support even returned contact the next day to follow up and inquire if any other needs/questions existed. Did discover that a full size sd card is required as the monitor will not recognize the small cards that come with the adapter. System has been up and running for 5 days now and I am happy with the results so far. Good picture even at night. Good system at a good price.

Pros: Mobility, clear picture, range, price

Cons: ability to toggle more than 1 camera via Skype iphone

Had a problem with setting up the internet access due to the fact that I have a MAC computer and not the Lorex system. Got excellent technical assistance from Lorex technical support. They were extremely helpful and easily resolved the problem.
My wife love the fact that she can monitor the grand kids from anywhere out side and speak to them from any of the four cameras.

Great wireless security system. Outstanding value for the price. Easy instulation without any problems. It worked on the "First Try" and is performing without any issues. I researched other systems and and very happy I decided on this Lorex system.

I would recomend this system toa friend and have already done so twice. My wife loves the secure feeling it provides. My only wish is that Lorex made a camera that had 60 foot night vision that would work on my system. Other than that, it is a super unit.

Have a home security alarm system already but wanted to install a video moniter system to add to our home protection. All four cameras will were installed outside, sort of protected from the elements but never the less installed outside, my monitor is chair side and from there i can watch my vehicles, the front door, the patio and my storage shed. Set up time recording so when i go to bed at night, my house is protected and my vehicles and storage shed is also protected. Hardest part of the install was the 110volt power needed for the cameras, but since I am an electrician, this was an easy task for me. I've heard that cold weather can effect the cameras so time will tell, summer is just starting and so far the system is just fine, picture is great, two way talk works great and the night vision is awsome!
I would recomend this system to anyone, but as said time will tell, my system is just one week old.

I am a 71 year old certified luddite and was able to follow instructions to set up the security system. Set up 4 cameras, 3 outside and one indoors. No problems transmitting images to my LCD display. Images are great, even at night. Showed it to my neighbor and he may purchase same unit--Do I Get a Cut? Brought the LCD display to his house next door and we could pick up all 4 of my cameras. When we go on trips, will give him the LCD to watch our house. Great product that is very reasonably priced.

This was my first attempt to install a wireless system and turned out to be easier than I imagined. I had it operating within 3 hours of opening the box. Only one minor misstep was the additional 2 cameras would not pair with the home unit, but the technical support was great in assisting, by immediately sending 2 replacements. For the price this is a very practical small unit for a homeowner. Recommend getting the extender antennae if you have more than one wall to transmit through or if you are using it for backyard use as I did.

EyeOnYou

Due to security concerns in the neighborhood - lots of car break-ins - I purchased this system and have two of the four cameras installed in the front of the house. One focused on the front door and the other on the driveway. The other two cameras will be installed in the back of the house as soon as I get power out there.
I absolutely love the fact that I can now see anyone approaching my home and/or at my door before I open the door. The 2-way communication built in the cameras is a wonderful feature for so many reasons. I can call the kids in without having to go outside. I can tell the solicitor at the door I'm not interested and don't have to hear their sales pitch. The ability to see/monitor my home from anywhere is so super cool.
And, the best part is that I don't have to pay a monthly fee. This is, by far, the best system available to the average homeowner. I'm so glad I chose Lorex to protect me and my home. If you have any concerns like I did, I highly recommend this system.

A side note: When I received my system, two of the cameras would not "pair" to the monitor. I contacted the customer service and after some diagnosis, it was determined that two of the cameras were the wrong type for that monitor. Lorex sent what I needed and all is right with the world. Their customer service is outstanding.

I purchased this system and I love it! Installation and pairing of the cameras was fairly easy too. If you plan on putting them outdoors, then I recommend a 5/8" spade bit. After you feed the wire through, just use some foam insulation or even some insulation putty, either should suffice. If you don't want hanging wires to be visible, then I suggest some low voltage plastic cable staples (1/4" should be fine) And if you have any trouble with Skype, then I suggest the website that I've attached below, it's pretty direct and self explanatory. Good luck!

Nearly Perfect






"This unit is nearly perfect. Awsome picture and sound. However the battery life is limited to about 3 hours. If you have the cradel charger in your room at night then this will be nearly perfect. We also found that our son talks when he wakes up and doesn't set off the audio alarm. This is an issue we found, but If he cries or talks loud then it will go off and we can hear him. This unit has differnt settings to save on power but we found to hear him if he needs us in the middle of the night to turn off the power saveing mode. This keeps the screen on but even if he moves aroud or coughs we now can hear him. This can be a plus if there is a music devise or noise maker in their room and you don't want to hear it all night. The audio turns off so only if he reaches the audio spec to set it off it will turn on.The specs say that at 80 decibles will set off the auto alarm. The audio is also awsome, just remember the 80 decible spec even when turned down to the most sensitive level. Picture is awsome day and night. Extremely clear and the unit has a large screen. So far so good. We have had this unit since December 1st 2009. Dad of a 15 month old"

Great product!!! Works well




"I bought this product so we could keep an eye on our toddler foster children after they are put to bed and still have some personal time to ourselves. It works wonderfully, has great night vision, and hooks up easily to the TV for a larger viewing screen. I originally bought 2 because I wanted to have 2 cameras and the ability to have monitors at two locations. Unfortunately, it is not possible to link the cameras with more than one monitoring unit. Therefore, I just paired both cameras with one monitor and put the other unit in storage in case the first one breaks. (Plus, additional cameras cost $150 on the Lorex website anyway). I'll probably buy another set just so I can have a 3rd camera. We just put the docking stations at different locations around the house and simply plop the monitor into the docking station wherever we are so it stays well charged."

Easy set up, nice 9" screen


So far I like this system very well. For me it is very easy and quick to get it all set up. I didn't need the manual for the settings cause it was so simple. The night vision is great, and reaches more than 40 feet. [...] One of the two cameras will show "No signal" while switching at times is the only reason i didn't give it a 5 star rating.

Easy to use


Good day and night picture quality. The two way audio works great. Very easy configuration. Initial set up takes less than 15 minutes. Automatic redord modes are helpful. The only reason for  it not being a 5 star is because the time and date are not saved when you turn off the display. So each time you turn on the display, you must configure time and date.

Affordable, decent quality security                           


At this point, I have installed one of the two cameras. I have one on my front door and will ultimately have one on the driveway. Installation and operation are very simple and basic. The fact that it is wireless makes life 100 times easier! The image quality is decent, about what I expected from such a system. The biggest flaw that I have discovered to this point is the rather low quality of the monitor, especially with regards to mounting hardware.



If you want a very basic system with effortless installation, I would definitely recommend this one.

Great Product, Just Understand Its Limits



I've used this system for 6 months now, and thus far it has worked very well. Let me cut to the chase:



PROS



-Easy installation. Very nice not needing cables ran everywhere, only power sources. Wireless has worked well, even during storms. There is a delay however, and sometimes it does cut out (not often).

-With the memory upgrade, you get more than adequate recording time.

-Very sharp picture quality and easy to use controls. Built in mics are a plus. Night vision is good.

-Affordable compared with other systems and has plenty of features.

-Durable. Have yet to have a problem after 6 months, including cold winter usage (Although I do recommend keeping the product out of direct water contact).



CONS



-If your using this for security, like I am, then several major problems exist. The motion detection is hit and miss, and sometimes does not activate the camera (cars usually do, people sometimes). The second problem is that it can't dual record - basically only one camera records at a time for 5 seconds and switches over. So, if you get robbed, it's entirely possible the camera may miss them coming into view or you'll miss an important event.

- The video unit is also the recording unit. So, if you get robbed, all they have to do is take the monitor (True, it does have a screensaver mode to hide the intent of the unit, but it's pretty obvious what it is).

-The menu system could be a bit smoother. Even with instructions, setting up events and viewing past recordings can be a hassle.



I think overall this system is great, if you understand it's limitations. For non-security purposes (like watching a children's room, etc) I think it would be perfect. For security, I think it works well as long as you know where the system has faults. If you've ever been robbed, you know how hindsight is always 20/20. Understand this system may not capture an important event and supplement your security system with other deterrents as well.

This review is from: Lorex LIVE SD9 Wireless Digital Security System - LW2902 (Camera)

The unit works mostly as advertised. Motion detection is good and triggers quickly. The only negative is the resolution could have been better. Image is fuzzier than indicated on the advertisements, and although some may like the large screen, it would be best to have a smaller display that you can carry around. Nevertheless, the sound is decent, and night vision is reasonably clear. Another drawback is the IR lights are illuminated in the dark, which means that an intruder can easily find the camera and just unplug it. But for the money, what can you ask for. The menu is bare bones and there is no option to disable the annoying "beep" for every selection, which could give away to an intruder that somebody somewhere nearby is watching him. The idea of the "joy stick" adjust is a good one. There is a volume adjust for the alarm and that is a plus. The two way communication feature works good. My wife would have liked a car power adapter option, so when arriving from work she could get a snapshot of who is in the house. But that could be an add on remote. Overall, for this price the system is good enough to monitor your home while you are sleeping, and it still seems to me the best buy right now.

Lorex LIVE SD9 Wireless Digital Security System - LW2902 (Camera)

I am pleased with the purchase. We have local youth who routinely try to break into our vehicles and/ or make off with various yard decorations. This system seems to be the proper means to see who is doing it. I will say I bought mine at BJ's Wholesale for the same price as here; I wanted to really see if it would work and have an immediate option for return.



PRO

- Sets up fast; right out of the box.

- Night vision is SUPERB! I have both cameras trained on our parking area and back yard, and I can see almost to the far side of the property at night. Best is I can see my dog on the monitor when he's out on is last out of then night. Our yard is a good 80 feet deep and I can see almost to the back side of it at night.

- Auto Record is GREAT! 5 - 15 - 30 second clips of any activity recorded on the memory card. Caught a lot of our yard work yesterday.

- 2 way audio is great!



CON

- Range, I had to move the monitor into the room just inside from where I mounted the cameras. The signal almost has to be line of sight. Thinking about the booster antenna, but not just yet.

- The Skype function is bogus and negates the reason to have the system. Either you can look at ONE camera while on Skype to see what's going on outside, or you can have a multi-camera, auto-record security monitoring system, but you can't have both. There is no feature for the software to automatically call you with a video if there is something going on. THAT would have been the golden ticket for this system.



But it records stuff happening, and through the monitor, I can see the events. I like that PEACE OF MIND.

Have instaled the system, pretty easy and simple to use. Keep your manual near to get used to the system. I think the detection is to sensitive. Just the shadow of the leaves on the floor make the system run. Also the speaker and microphone makes feedback and I have to turn the sound off. The height of people and objects are smaller than real but their width are the same. A 6 footer will look more of a 5.6 and fatter than real. But for my use, after been robbed, this is what I was looking for. When I leave home I start recording so that way I feel safe ! Beware robbers !!!

The monitor that was originally sent only worked for one day. Once I hooked it up to my computer to view outside of my home the monitor stopped working when it was disconnected from my computer. The monitor would still work when hooked to the computer but the monitor the screen would stay black and I could not view anything from the monitor itself once it was disconnected. The company has great customer service and tried to technical shoot this problem but when it could not be fixed they resolved my issue fast and warrantied out my monitor. This one has been working without any problems, so far. The monitor and four cameras was an open box item at a great price.

Overall a decent product. One thing that could be improved is the adjustable stand. I followed the instructions precisely, yet it did not function as described and actually broke. I inserted the stand and turned it counterclockwise until it clicked. Then, it was adjustable through a range of just under 90 degrees (at 0 degrees it fell out), none of which allowed correct orientation. When I tried to continue turning as the instructions said, it broke. Another note, put in your troubleshooting guide: "I can't hear anything from the camera microphone?". It took me awhile to figure out that I hadn't removed the transparent film from the camera lense and this covers the integrated microphone. The monitor's picture quality could be better. The two choices for resolution are both low. You can acually see the little squares that make up the picture. Be aware that the frame refresh rates are low too; you don't get a smooth continuous flow of frames, especially at high res. It is sensitive to sun glare. Other than those shortcomings it's a pretty good system. The intercom works well. The IR night vision seems to work well.

I HAVE A QUESTION AND I HOPE A GET A QUICK ANSWER . I RECENTLY PURCHASED THIS SYSTEM JUNE 2013 AND SUDDENLY 1 OF MY CAMERAS WHICH WAS WORKING FINE DECIDES TO SHOW IN BLACK AND WHITE DURING THE DAY WHILE ALL OTHERS ARE COLOUR . I WIPED OFF LENSE AND HOUSING BUT THAT DID NOT WORK . MAYBE IT'S A DEFEECT CAMERA ??

LOREX :   Dear JPI,
Here are some troubleshooting tips: First, see if the camera has enough light to operate in the day mode. If the camera is in a dark place, it will switch into a night vision mode because there is not enough light for the camera to see in a daytime mode. Check all the cables and connections - poor connection may cause video quality loss. During the day, try to cover the camera`s lens with your hand. You should hear the clicking noise - the camera will be switching into the night vision mode. If this does not happen, please contact customer service - they will be able to replace your camera

Wish you could view all the cameras remotely with Skype,only get camera one.
Screen is small especially for viewing four cameras but hook up to TV is easy.
You can switch from TV to receiver easy and the whole operation is easy to learn.
Did have to drill small holes in house to run camera to power source just ran it to inside plugs in diff rooms,but wifi is a lot better than running wires all through house.

Just wish it came with larger SD card (comes with 2G). Would give five stars if there was more customization options in the software but for this price point the options are far above the competition.

This is my second home system from Lorex. I have an external system on my house which works great. I use the LW491 to keep tabs on my elderly in laws who reside with me now after suffering a stroke. It works great. The intercome capability is great. The night vision is excellent. Easy to set up. I think the camera stand or attachments could be of a higher quality. for the price they are a little cheap. Uniden makes a better camera attachment. My only concern is the web based add states Promo Code SYSTEM15, 15 percent off ALL security systems. I entered the code, it would not work, I called Lorex once billed and the response was "it does not apply to this system", I guess "ALL" does not mean "ALL". Otherwise a nice little system. Again my second one from Lorex, overall I am very pleased with both systems and would recommend the product. Touch screen would be nice.

So far everything is as advertised, I thought that since they were outdoor cameras that I could just plug them into an outside socket but I learned that the plug-ins are indoor use only and had to drill a hole through the wall. It came with four cameras so I had to pair two of them to the monitor. I installed the camera and tried to pair it with the monitor outside and it did not work so I took the camera and the monitor inside and tried and it worked instantly, go figure! so I put it back outside and everything is working find.so I would recommend pairing them first before installing. maybe it says that in the manual.

pros night vision, ease of installation, offers a lot for the money
cons electrical plugs are for indoor use only skype

The Lorex Camera System provides a very good monitoring system for our household.
However your product replacement / repair policy is not consumer friendly. The consumer
pays the return product shipment cost plus additional installer cost involving a defective
product purchased from Lorex.

Please give some servious consideration to changing your Product Replacement/Repair
Policy.

Thank You,
Jim Bee

Hooked up the 4 camera wireless system. Ran power through attic down wall to garage where it would be cooler in the summer for transformers. Installed cameras on various spot on house.

Day pictures are good, night pics o.k. Hard to make out colors for cars at night. Like the 4 "thumb"nail pictures.

If you have long runs (longer than 50 feet), you might need an antenna for better reception.

My camera 4 is not working at the moment, don't know if it is the camera or the transformer, have to check out.

Over all a good system for the price.
