My purchase arrived in a timely fashion everything was in working order installation was easy. Currently learning the functionalities and I have already recommended to family and friends. I did have to complete the order over the phone. The wait time was long but with the system in place I can say it was worth it. My only concern is when going through registration it tells you to have the registration number assigned and the receipt if you need assistance and to date I have not received a receipt and hope the statement from my credit card will suffice if I need to make a claim. So far I am a very happy camper will learn the durability while bracing for east coast winter.

I purchased the LW491 system two weeks ago and I could not be happier. The entire system was up and running in my test mode within 30 minutes. I spent about an hour installing the cameras in my desired locations. The cameras are easy to pair to the monitor. One of the "pre-paired" cameras would not give me a picture after plugging and unplugging several times, so I simply re-paired it to the monitor and it has worked perfectly since. The 3rd and 4th cameras also paired without difficulty. I found the cords to be plenty long enough; matching the two ends allows greater than 10 feet to a power source. My distant-most camera from the monitor is about 75 feet on the opposite side of house and across the yard, but works well. Night vision is excellent; day vision is in full color. The literature states it comes with a 2mb card, but mine came with a 4mb card. I upgraded to 32mb card for $12 on Amazon. The controls are very easy to operate. Set-up took about 2 minutes. It's fun to see what goes on around my property; I can record when anyone comes or goes with motion activation, simply run the moniter for live feed, or turn off altogether when at home during daytime. I highly recommend this system for home security.

This 4 camera Lorex is the second wireless system I have purchased We wanted additional cameras and the price was right. My husband and I installed the cameras in an afternoon paired the cameras that needed that. Hooked them to a TV in the house and now all 6 cameras are working and we just love the Lorex products. I would recommend purchasing the 4 camera system in the beginning it is well worth the expense. My husband and I are over 65 and this was very easy to install. We had company over from church yesterday and they were amazed at this set up we have

The system is worth the money. Everything works as the literature states. Set up was easy and simple. The mounting of the cameras took a little more time and if you are using them for outside surveillance they need to be mounted outside under some type of cover.

I order the LW 491, with 4 cameras. What they sent was model# LW2932 with two cameras with the 9" monitor and then 2 extra cameras packaged separately.

There are minor problems with the plate that holds the camera. The nut under the plate gets loose and the camera swirls. You have to make sure it is tight. A wing nut would have been better than the nut that they supply.

I did expect a remote with this product and none was given or listed in the parts list.

Since purchasing this system in June 2014 it has caused me problems. But so far, Lorex has done well in helping to resolve these.
My initial problem was with the memory overwrite. I wanted the cameras to run 24/7 and have the memory automatically overwrite previously recorded files. This system claimed to do this, but after hours on their support line, we still couldn’t make it work. Lorex suggested that their 4GB was the problem and that I should buy a 32 GB card, as this would enable the system to properly overwrite. (Initially their representative said they would send me a 32GB card, but then they later reneged on this.) So I bought a 32GB card, but this didn’t resolve the issue – but I did my best to manage the situation regardless.
For the first few months I had only three cameras connected to the system. Recently I went to add the fourth camera. For whatever reason, this resulted in a catastrophic failure of LCD/screen console and nothing worked at all.
So I reported this to Lorex via email.
To their credit, they very quickly sent me a 2 camera replacement system with components that were supposed to be compatible with my current system. Unfortunately, of the 4 cameras from my original system, only 1 camera would pair with the new system they sent me. This is a major problem because I’ve already spent hours fishing wires to install my original system and don’t want to do this again with new cameras.
I called their support section (was on hold for nearly an hour) but Hana in BC was very helpful and help me pair the cameras. I wrote most of this review while on hold….It is clear to me that the instructions for pairing and the troubleshooting section of the website need to be updated – as this would have saved me a few hours of hassle. You need to disconnect everything to start, then wait 30 seconds. Plug in the LCD, and go to the pairing section. Start the pairing process on the LCD system, THEN plug in your camera, and hold the pairing button for only a second. A second is all you need. If I had known this, my life would have been much easier.
Thank you Hana.

As far as the system itself is concerned, it could be a little more robust. I wish it were possible to turn off the LCD monitor when in Quad-view mode.

My first impression when I opened the box was that the monitor looked really small. It I,s but it is functional. The pairing with the 2 extra cameras went well. The menu and setting are pretty easy to walk through. The quality of the video and photos are OK, not great but not bad for the price. I ordered the extra antenna for the unit but didn't realize it only worked on one camera at a time and doesn't boost the entire system. I put one camera about 75 feet away and it would not connect. Put the antenna on and it works fine but you would need to buy 3 more antennas if you want to boost the entire system. Overall, I got what I paid for. For the price, it does do an awful lot for your home security.

I first purchased cameras and system noted below LW491, that didn't work for me. I sent those back and purchased Model LW2277 with LW482. These new camera's were brand new and in sealed box. This new system has a hard drive that records constantly when the wireless cameras are connected. I have placed the DVR main box in center of house and still have problem connecting to wireless cameras sometimes. Also our house is open spaced with large windows. Technicians offered us to purchase a range extender that we don't feel there is a need to purchase. Good camera's when they are connected. Also if returning anything, take pictures before sending. I almost didn't get my money back on my first purchase. Logistics company said that we only sent 2 cameras back. Luckily I took pictures of entire return box.

The camera system is a perfect system for you home security. The quality of picture was good at a short enough distance. The features where good such as the two walk talking and the wireless connection. Some of the things i would be cautious about would be how you plan to get power to the cameras because they are not your universal DC tips they have to be ordered from lorex so you cant cut corners with that. Also the house brackets could be a little longer being that they are not fully weather proof you are limited on where you can place them. Overall for the price they are good buy for the every day home security system.

I bought this system to catch my crazy neighbor. However, the mention sensor is not sensitive enough to pick anyone that walks by around 25 feet away in my driveway. Now I have to put it on scheduled recording, but it won't pick up any audio when the recording is not on single channel mode. I wish the sensor was more sensitive than that.

We got the 2730 with 4 cameras for a great price. The initial instructions seemed very easy. Camera installation was very easy. The screws included are crap, I had to buy new. The DVD did not work so we called the toll free number and waited 15 minutes for a response. The" English speaking" person, who i could not understand, just told us to go online under lorex technology website, he was zero help. I had to go online also to look up how to set up cameras 3 and 4, the directions they send are not specific enough and did not work. The images on the monitor are very clear and overall the whole operation went smooth or you could figure how to make it work.
So far it is operating well.

The Lorex system LW491 was not the correct system for the outside of my home. I mounted the camera's under the eaves like instructed to and the sensors would not detect until someone was standing exactly under them. One camera didn't work. Very little distance for motion or heat sensors. After talking with a technician, I then purchased newer model with a recording hard drive. Works perfect. Thanks to the technicians. Plan on spending some time reaching anyone at anytime.

Bought the 4 camera system with the 7" monitor. Had a couple of issues paring the extra two cameras, but after powering down both the camera and monitor, they paired easily. When in doubt reboot. Love the system, now digging into how to hook up system to Skype so I can monitor when away. Night resloution is a little grainy but still fairly clear, close up is quite clear, Love the clairity/color during the day.
