I purchased the LNR360 in July 2014 from Costco. They came with 6 bullet and 3 dome cameras. Installation was a breeze. PoE is the only way to go. The picture quality from these cameras are amazing. I use the Lorex app on my Iphone and never have a problem. The NVR unit probably could be a little more user friendly or maybe I should just take a little more time to read the directions, not sure yet, been a little lazy with that. Most of neighbors that have seen these cameras are blown away by the quality. I tell them to "go big or go home", you get what you pay for. What's the sense of getting cheap grainy cameras. If this is the case, go get fake cameras and save your money. As far as customer service goes, make sure you establish an account online with Lorex and fill out the warranty information. It is very important to get your receipt scanned and uploaded into your account, I recently had a little trouble with my remote and called customer service. I put them on speaker and played around on the internet until they picked up 20 minutes later. Once I got a live person the call lasted 2 minutes. They checked my account and saw the uploaded receipt and told me the remote will be shipped on the next business day. Sure enough, UPS banging on my door with what I needed. They do have an option to make a ticket online instead of calling, but I recommend doing that and calling. The ticket didn't seem to get addressed right away. Not sure how that works with them.
Overall, I highly recommend this system and plan on adding more cameras to my system.

This system is super easy to set up and get going. The resolution and picture quality of the cameras are excellent. I prefer the bullet cameras over the dome cameras because they are much more flexible when installing. That would be the only down-side of this system for me. Highly recommend this system looking to protect their home or business!

This system was worth the money. The picture is crystal clear. Its crazy how clear the video is during the day. I'm able to see when a package has arrived to my house when I'm gone. I love that i can view the video feed on my phone while I'm away.

This new system is very good! easy to put together, it took about 4hours to place the six cameras and run the cables around the house. No issues at all. Very clean and clean pictures, night vision works great too! Just to let you know this is my second system i purchase from COSCO. very nice! i worked a couple of hours last night trying to get this system to work on my iPad and or iPhone, not up yet. not sure what the problem at this time. my first one works great by the iPad.

I purchased a 6-camera system (4 bullet, 2 dome cameras) from Costco about 6 months ago and performance has been very good with minimal downtime. However, one of the cameras failed after approximately 4 months and had to be replaced through Lorex warranty. The phone call with customer service to perform initial diagnostics and obtain an RMA number for replacement was easy and fast, but Lorex received the failed unit and was in possession of it for a month (based on UPS tracking information) before I received the replacement camera. After 3 weeks of waiting for the replacement I contacted customer service who may have resolved this "limbo" and finally initiated shipment of the replacement camera, so overall I was happy with their customer service even after this problem.

Their mobile applications for iOS on both iPhone and iPad are great, as well as the PC application. Each has its own minor bugs or hiccups (i.e. occasional dropped stream) but work well enough for what I require. I did find that internet-streaming performance is significantly better when using a DNS to your network rather than connecting to the Stratus web service first. The Stratus service makes things very easy, but streaming performance was lacking considerably versus connecting directly to the system using DNS. I did not try the Lorex-offered DNS and instead chose to use a No-IP.com DNS.

Overall, the system suits my needs and I've been satisfied with both its performance and Lorex customer service for the price.

Bought the system from Costco with 4 additional bullet cameras making 13 total. I have been very impressed with the system. The images have been excellent. The system works as described. Did not have to contact customer service. The networking part was a bit tricky but I was able to figure it out without much trouble. So far, every thing is working well. I will see how it does in the long run.

LNR300 Series 8-Channel Security NVR with HD IP Cameras- very impressed with the unit. After it was hooked up, I was able to load the app onto both my IPad and IPhone. The picture quality is great for both day and night time. I'm still learning the unit on how to play back videos and how to download pictures. Need better instructions on step by step on how to do that, but besides that it's pretty a pretty good unit.

This camera system works really well, but it's a challenge to get the motion detection settings right on the DVR and the remote computer/iPad/iPhone, etc so I am getting real alerts and not getting false positives. I found the learning curve to be very steep, but it's mostly due to documentation issues.

That said, however, their technical customer service is EXCELLENT, and has been stepping me through everything. Also, I rarely have to hold for the "next available technician."

It's still not doing what I want it to with motion detection sending me the alerts I want, but I think we'll get there eventually. I do have confidence that the 24/7 coverage is in the DVR, however, although I have not explored playback much yet.

I think the hardware for the money is an exceptional value and hard to beat. The software seems adequate, I think (at least as far as I've understood it), but the documentation for my model could explain things better, i.e., the software is not intuitive and online help would help a lot within the the DVR console system.

Glad we bought this product and I recommend it. Just be prepared to fiddle with it a while to get what you want.

Pros:
- PoE is very nice. One Ethernet cable for signal and power. This makes for a much simpler installation. No electrical outlet is needed at each camera installation.
- Ethernet cables are included with bundle package.
- NVR recognizes cameras automatically and relatively quickly.
- iOS app is simple yet useful. Easy to set up.
- Video is high quality. Clear picture during the day. Night vision works well, but the max distance you'll get will vary with conditions.
- 3 out of 4 cameras have worked flawlessly through the winter.
- Remote video playback on iOS app works well. It works better than on PC.

Cons:
- Setup via PC software could be easier. It wasn't very intuitive for a first time user. It took a while to figure out how to get everything set up properly and view from PC software, but the software works once you figure out how to use it. 3 minute setup?...not quite.
- The documentation is very limited as far as how helpful it acutally is. The quick start guide is too brief. The full manual is not extensive enough.
- No listing of error codes anywhere. Not in documentation or online. So, if you do get an error, the code is worthless because you can't find out what it means.
- No remote diagnostics for camera error codes. No remote reset for cameras or NVR. If you are monitoring a remote location and have a problem there is no way to reset or troubleshoot without driving out to location. This is incredibly inconvenient if you have it to monitor a house 1-2 or more hrs away.
- One of my cameras has flaked out several times in the winter weather with error code 416.
- The ethernet connection on the camera dongle is huge. If you are looking to mount a camera outside and bring the connecor inside (so it isn't expose to the weather outside) by drilling a hole in the wall, you have to drill a very large hole to get the connector through the wall. The camera mount then barely covers the hole.
- Compatibility with android OS is limited. This was very disappointing. A 2 year old android device is not compatible with this system.
- Setting up access for web browser is much more of a process than it should be. Still don't have this going yet.
- Motion sensing doesn't work quite like we had hoped. Even on the least sensitive setting, bugs/spiders/moths set off the motion sensor constantly. Don't really see any way to make this feature useful unless you live somewhere with no insects.

Overall:
We are satisfied with the product, but there are many improvements that could be made. This system should suffice, but I think our expectations were a bit high mainly because we expected a very polished product for the price. One camera seems to be failing, but everything else is working fine. We are not ecstatic, but we are not tearing the system out. This system is probably as good as it gets for home security cameras considering you can access via PC software remotely, iOS, Android (and supposedly web browser). This is probably one of the best systems (based on simple comparison on the internet) you can get without spending thousands more on a more industrial/professional system. All things considered, I would recommend this product. Just have realistic expectations.

This cameras are attractive by the price, the quality at dark is not good at all, you will not recognize anyone's face if you had to or body.
During the day is OK as long as they are not in the shade or the quality will be very bad, unable to recognize a face again.
The Ethernet cameras disconnect on their own very often you have to keep resetting cameras.
The customer service is the worst that you can experience.
The cameras on DVR disconnect on they own also for no reason and have to reset often.
Overall the cameras are not what you expect for a security system, very unreliable.
If you have not experience all of these problems already you will in time or quick, lots of complains, Costco product.

IF LOREX HAVE A FIX FOR ALL OF THESE PROBLEMS THAT WILL BE GREAT, LET US KNOW I'LL BE GLAD TO TAKE THE ADVISE OR THE REPAIRS.

I purchased the LNR 360 and hooked up 8 cameras to protect my parents. I live over 400 miles away and can easily view all cameras on my IPAD. the view is crystal clear. I get the opportunity to look at the cameras history at night to ensure that no one is walking around my parents house at night. It gives me and my parents peace of mind. If they hear anything or if in the morning they noticed something is out of place around the house outside, I just look at the cameras history and I can determine what the issue was. Anyone who does not have a camera system does not realize the peace of mind there is knowing you know what is happening about your house 24 hours a day. I would absolutely recommend Lorex camera systems to everyone. The video runs and records at 1080 P and I can watch any activity almost in live smooth motion. Thank you Lorex!

Looked online and at real stores and found the Lorex to be what I was looking for. Called the sales line on the phone (got a real person and after 6pm at night). The sales person was very helpful and worked with me to get the mix of cameras ( bullet and dome) that I wanted. They upgraded the DVR to a higher model for no additional cost. Received the hardware in a few days and the packing was very well done so shipping damage should be non existent, there was no damage to my order. Anxious to see how my system worked I plugged the NVR in and connected 3 of the 6 cameras. All came right up with no issues. Within 15 minutes I had the cameras up on my iPhone, iPad, and my laptop. Ran the ethernet cables to my 6 cameras, reconnected the NVR and,,,nothing. Called Lorex Support and confirmed the BIOS failed in the NVR and a replacement would be sent out to me. Six days later the replacement came and after plugging in all the connections all 6 cameras came up. Picture quality is great. Had to call support to set up the email function and after about 45 minutes that was working. Still need to set up the motion alert function. So far so good, now the question is long term reliability, Only time will tell

Good image quality, especially during daylight hours. In my case, useable night vision range is 25-30' in darkness. So far has been pretty reliable. Once in a great while a camera may need to be reset by unplugging from the NVR and plugging back in. The drawbacks I wish would be addressed are that there are only 2 cameras available, both with a 75 degree field of view and you can't use other branded cameras on this system. Been waiting for a longer fixed lens camera for watching a specific area, plus a full 90 degree camera would make this system more flexible. Even the same cameras but with different focal length cameras would really help.The phone app and the PC app (which shuts off after a varying amount of time) could stand for some more robustness. Having "port forwarding" set up so you can view continuously in a web browsers (Internet Explorer only due to ActiveX) seems to be the best way to remotely view, but it's not that straightforward to set up. If you can live with only 75 degree cameras, its a pretty nice system.
