Choosing the right security system

differences between Lorex MPX analog HD security systems and Lorex NVR security systems
MPX or IP? What security systems to choose? analog or digital?
BNC cables for HD video transmission and power for an easy connection between DVR and security camera

Reliable analog HD over a single BNC cable

Siamese BNC cabling is used in the MPX42 to deliver stunning 1080p HD video. This type of cabling provides both video and power transmission for an easy-to-install process that will have your security system up and running in no time. The 4-channel DVR is also backwards-compatible, which means that you can use older compatible BNC cameras to expand your security coverage.

Security grade hard drive for high workloads

Security certified hard drive included

The MPX42 employs a security grade hard drive to take on the task of storing security footage. Not your run-of-the-mill HDD, this hard drive is manufactured specifically for the high workload demands of security monitoring. Record weeks (or even months) of footage with its 1 terabyte storage capacity. Save disk space by easily adjusting DVR settings that let you record at lower resolution. You can also program scheduled recording times, or set the DVR to record only when one of your security cameras detects motion.

Customer service is terrible.
Have been on hold at 4 different times for over an hour without anyone helping.

Our apologies for the wait time. Our technical support team was happy to resolve the issue you were experiencing.

Here is another much improved product from last year.

We had purchased an additional Lorex combo deal on the security cameras ... this was the Model# LHV2004S
This combo deal comes with only 2 cameras but the DVR can accommodate a total of 4 high resolution 1080p camera system.

This combo deal complemented our already pre-installed x16 camera 1080p system from Lorex.
Though we were short 2 cameras on this purchase... we had to pull 2 other cameras from our other site location.

The video quality of the 1080p was obviously very clear which we had already expected.
What was more impressive was the smart phone software that is easy to manage...., managing either from an IPhone or the Android smart phones.
We were also much impressed with the PC software installed and connected to the Cameras systems.

The option connecting through the Lorex DDNS (remote connection) was much easier than software form last year. And we were plased to see that the option was having the ablilty to connect two DVR into one software system.... so technically you can have more than 2 DVR connected to the same software and viewing it all at the same time. This option was not obvious with our 960p Lorex camera system. It may have been there but we found that this 1080p camera system software to be much user friendly.

I would definitely recommend this product to any small business offices requiring security camera systems.

To allow multiple DVR to be connected to one software... make sure that each DVR has it unique port number. This option is configured within the DVR.

we have decided to go with Lorex DVR systems for all of our business locations due to it's flexibility with remote access and allowing us to set up multiple users to access particular cameras with ease. I did have a small issue with setting up remote access but the customer support was very friendly and very helpful in getting the issue resolved quickly. (it also worth noting that the customer service reps and techs are American which made communication a breeze.) Live view and playback is very smooth and reliable. the 1080p quality works very well but if you are wanting to reserve the drive for more record time you can reduce the quality through a wide range of settings, you can even change the settings differently to each channel if you want.

Set up was straight-forward and intuitive. HDD is good, although I did replace the wired mouse with a wireless usb alternative. This allowed me to incorporate the system into my home entertainment unit and easily check video from across the room. Remote access via iPhone app was easy to install and connect. Video quality is excellent for daytime use and somewhat better than expected in darkness, with good image quality over 50' in total darkness.

I've installed dozens of the HD 1080p Lorex LHV2000 systems sold at Costco. I had a customer on a budget who only needed 2 cameras, but wanted HD 1080p. This system is ideal. Although only 2 cameras are included, this DVR is 4 channel, making this system expandable. The cameras included in this system are an upgrade from the LHV2000 system. These are robust metal, compared to the others being plastic. These cameras have more infrared LEDs which should provide better night vision at longer distances. The icing on the cake, "Smart Search". A feature on this DVR that enables you to highlight a section from the field of view and search for any motion events in that section only. It really cuts down on time spent searching through playback. I will be ordering more of these. Yes, I recommend this product.

WORST return experience ever, I doubt I will get my money back and I did everything they said. First call to check on return, phone representative laughed at my name, would not let me speak to his manager. Second attempt tried to contact them thru the online, I receive an email saying that UPS had delivered the item to where they told me to send it, provided tracking info and my inquiry was closed without being answered. I will have to contact the Attorney Generals office. BEWARE!!!!!

Our apologies for any difficulty you experienced. It usually takes 10-14 days for returns to be processed and yours has been completed.

Purchased the mpx42w system in March of this year and added a LW2231 wireless camera for a remote spot. The distance was about 550 ft. (line of sight). I have had wall to wall signal and am also very happy with the image quality of this camera as well as the wired cameras. The DVR is easy to navigate and it syncs easily with my iphone. Can check cameras from anywhere and can replay footage from my laptop at home. Love the system. Easy set up for the average person with medium technology skills. Had a couple of minor gliches trying to figure it out but there support people were outstanding. Highly recommended!

Easy set up. Very happy that we can set up the Area I need for each camera and type of alarm I need. Night vision is very good quality. Have two wired and two wireless cameras connected to the box. Have several days of recorded data back. Very easy backup. Can select which camera I need, what type I want to see (motion only or all), can browse with the time that I select. Very happy with the purchase, this company will be always first on my list if I want to purchase another or additional products and would highly recommend to anyone.

Video is clear even when streaming to mobile device, no problems as of 06 04 2016,
Night vision is really nice in doors.

I have not mounted other camera outside yet but i am sure it will look as good as the one inside.

All in all it seems to be a great 2 camera system.
Video Quality is more than i expected

Ordering & delivery: great!
Installation: easy to install.
Setup: had to go online to download the manual for assistance w/ setup. Very limited information included in package.
Customer service: had to call customer svc to help setup email feature. Wait time was short on one call & long on one call, but they were nice & super helpful.
Product: so far so good! Still haven't been able to perfect the motion detection feature without lots of motion sensitivity. Still working on this. The quality of the picture & night vision are average for the price range. The dvr seems to be sufficient - lasts about a week before re-write on 1080.
Overall: product has been used for about a month & is a good value for the price.
Flir app: it's okay. Not used very much.

I would like to say this was by far the easiest system to install and set up I have ever seen. Setting up on computers and mobile devises was simple and quick. The picture I receive on the VGA and Mobil devises is extremely clear. The only thing I would like to suggest is more clear, simple and detailed instructions on setting up a DDNS. Overall I would recommend this system to anyone.

Hi. This is my second time with the lorex system. I went with the wired, that way I wont have an wireless issues, considering it was going through a lot of walls and brick, so I opted for wired system. I just have to put the whole outside to connect the router and run the camera to the porch now. I love the ease of the dvr system, the ddns is working great, the app on the phone is working great. The playback of video is easy and I enjoy the system's simple setup and 24 hour recording with out a computer. Great System for the money.

We have purchased a total of 9 Lorex systems and 1 other brand over the last several years for installation at several locations we wanted to monitor. All DVRs are working fine, no problems. We have had to replace a camera every now and then but I guess that can be expected at some point...? I've actually got a three cameras I need to trouble shoot now as soon as I can get to it. They are fine during the day but the night vision isn't working and resetting them did not resolve the problem. Also, I monitor my home system on both my iPad and iPhone but I can't even log into the app on my husband's iPhone. I get a password error. I can't figure that one out, I know the password. Hopefully there will be an easy fix for these minor annoyances. For now, they are lingering on my to do list.

After reading review on this product and getting a reasonable price on the unit with Lorex's web store I made the decision to go for it. the product was packaged and shipped professionally the way we expect products to be out of the USA.
Very easy and quick setup on this package deal. The detail and resolution on the cameras are sufficient for home use to see what is going on around the house. Nice features like the alarm and motion sensor set up.
I do have one of the 4 cameras not focused as the other three, causing me to be a bit concerned as to why. I have sent an electronic ticket request that a new camera be sent to replace the unit that will not suit my application. I hope their service or customer service deals with this issue in a quick and professional manner.
I would expect that they would just send me a new camera to replace this would even be nice if they sent me an even better resolution camera for all my troubles since I paid a professional installer to run the wiring through the house...only to realize the camera focus was out of whack. I don't expect much to happen but I will see and keep this review up to date on the status of this situation. Nontheless I believe in their product and would recommend this system for home use. Next system I would rather spend the extra couple hundred dollars to have better resolution.

Seems to work great. The night vision is excellent. I caught a guy breaking in our business the first week it was installed at night. He will be convicted because of the these awesome cameras. For me this system is hard to set up for viewing over the internet but once working it is great. Tech support is a joke!!! they after waiting 20 minutes they anwered the phone and took down my number and never called me back. Plus you could not understand what they were saying. They must be in India.

I purchased two of these systems to monitor a retail and a office location. Installation was easy and programing was a not that hard once you get the hang of the interface. If you use your cell phone to monitor, be careful about using up your plan streaming these videos... One of the systems I have had for almost a year, the other for about three months. The resolution of these cameras will not allow recording of legible license plate on a vehicle although the daytime view is decent quality. The night vision (monochrome) is fuzzy and not very clear, but is acceptable to be able to tell is something is amiss. I did have to return one of the DVR's due to a bad BNC connector on the back of the unit. Customer Service at Lorex was very good and I received replacement within a few days of reporting the problem. Overall, you can not beat the price of this product. I have not had any failures of the supplied equipment and am pleased with the systems. I would definitely recommend for general security monitoring purposes.

Good product, easy to install and set up, still haven't got the DDNS part working yet, but I'm sure I will. Camera's provide quite a good picture for the price of the system. Mouse doesn't always want to connect when I plug it in, I sometimes have to shut system off and restart it to use mouse, but once it's set up you can use remote control.

This was the first system that I installed by myself. As a novice to security systems it was an easy install and setup. I did a complete setup with motion sensing and email notices. All the free services that Lorex provides made it a smooth setup. With a little tweeking of the area and sensitivity I have the system up and running just the way I wanted. The remote interface has been seamless as well as the mobile options. I have the mobile app running on both Apple and Android systems and its working great! I would recommend this system to anyone who is looking to get started in the security camera world.

Location: Toronto, ON

Paid about ~336 for this, one of the few systems that ship to Canada for free. The wiring on the end of the camera look a bit cheap in the way they are designed, but seems to work without issues so far. The play back system could be more intuitive. Feel a little more protected now with the system setup, especially with the cylon red glow of cameras in night vision mode :P

Otherwise it is working well so far, will definitely report back if any issues arise.

Excellent system but not for Everyone

Hard wired system. After set up I realize that a wireless would have been easier and better for the job of keeping an eye on my apt. With a rash of robberies in the building (believed to be someone who works or lives here) I decided it was time for a system. Set up wasn't hard but hiding the wires was annoying and a system with cut wires isn't useful.

Over all the system is excellent for the cost of $350. It has features that others don't. BUT it has some drawbacks that made me rate it 3 stars.

One wired limits it and I needed to replace on wire right off. Making me think that normal wear would require replacement of wires in the future.

Two the cameras are quite visible great for prevention but horrible if you are dealing with an actual criminal vs vandal. It makes it easy to spot and disable the unit by cutting the wire or spraying it with paint while keeping their face covered.

Now the great things about it. It has vision is great at night. Picture is clear. DVR has an alert that lets you know when the motion detector is set off. Works for me because my apartment is in a corner of a building and no one but my elderly old neighbor set it off. She doesn't go out much and it's good to know when she is walking because she fell a few years back and was on the floor for 20 minutes before anyone found her. So the alert helps me keep my place safe and lets me watch out for her. I can see the alerts getting annoying in a high traffic area.

The android app lets me watch on my phone. Which honestly is kind of creepy. I went out and came home with my friend Diana and my husband got an alert so he know before the he came home that we were hanging out. Again creepy but I would want to know if someone breaks in while I'm out or tries It gives me the opportunity of calling the cops while I'm out. Keeping us safer.

Now 3 cameras are indoors and I have had to put on outdoors. One wire indoors needed to be replaced. The box said the outdoor camera needs to be protected from snow and rain. Fine if you have a one or two storey building. But I live on the fifth floor... That high with some winds snow and rain goes sideways. No way of protecting the camera with out cutting visibility. Since installation it hasn't snowed and we have only had light rain. It might be cynical of me but I think that camera is probably going to be an issue once we have our north east winter. Making me wonder how outdoors the system is.

So if you live in a house, with cover for the cameras, and are afraid of vandals or dumb crooks and think a system will prevent crime. It is an excellent system.

If you want a system that will alert you of motion so you can call the cops while you are out or on vacation. It's an excellent system.

If it is a back up system that you use with a wireless. It's excellent.

If you want a overall system for crime, in cold areas of the country or apt buildings - pass on it. Go instead for a wireless, smaller camera and tougher weather proof cameras instead. It might be more expensive but it is worth it.

Just Installed

I have this installed by a professional installer and it turned out very well. Except for the extra wires needed and the bigger screws for the camera installation everything came with the order. I have not yet tried the over the INTERNET monitoring although I have set it up to do it. Picture quality is good with adequate light. The night vision range seems to be about 20 to 30 feet from the camera in total darkness.

Overall I give it 4 stars.

Very Good for the Price

I bought this to use before going on vacation and have been satisfied with the results for the most part. A couple hours for the install, a few minutes to setup the software. It produces a great picture for daytime and a fairly good picture for night-time. I love being able to watch the video feed on my Android Phone from anywhere I am. After a month I did have one camera stop working. I called and faxed in the information to get it replaced. I am awaiting a new camera so I will follow-up on this review once I see how well their customer service is.

Lorex excels

I was pretty skeptical about this bargain cost unit but Lorex has proven themselves once again. The unit has all the features listed, was easy to set up, pretty much used the defaults and is intuitive to use. I have some firewall issues to work out so I haven't set it up for web access yet but having done this with other Lorex units, I believe it will work well.

The cameras are low end, but functional. If I replace them, I will likely look for a higher end camera.

works ok, needs better cameras

I purchased this item after several incidents of dumping in back alley.

- It’s easy to set up and install.

- Works ok both in the day and night. The cameras work but the resolution is not good enough to be able to read license plates.

- The recorder works ok but is a little tricky to find the time you are looking for, it goes in 15 minute increments.

- After purchasing found same system for as much as 100 dollars less elsewhere.

For a basic system I guess it works ok.

Lorex security DVR with 4 cameras

Almost bought this same system at PC Richards on sale at $459 but found it at Amazon for $306. Amazon, you’ve done it again. It’s a great system. You get everything you need to set it up and protect your property. Set up motion sensors on the system and the camera only records when it senses motion. All recording is put on a hard disc drive that formats itself when it fills up. You can access any video by date and time right on your monitor or watch it from your computer. You can even watch your home from your cell phone. So many amenities I can’t list them. If you need a security system, this is the one and Amazon is the place to get it from. Always check online for better prices, there's no middleman and from experience, Amazon has the best prices around.

Works But Not Built To Last

I set this up over about a week and though it works well, the lack of quality is a cause for concern. I have my doubts that the cameras will hold up to exterior conditions and found some of the camera connections to be quite flimsy.

The thread that is inside the camera body is not really strong enough and strips out if over tightened even by hand!

The cables are long enough and the set up is fairly easy if you are enough of a handyman, a card comes in the package that appears to offer free installation but the wording is dodgy enough to give me doubts as to if it is really free or not.

I have three of the cameras up and working, the quality of the video is quite good , full color in daylight, monochrome at night, the fourth camera does not work properly, it seem to be an issue with the cable itself. The camera works when connected to one of the other cables.

I have not yet connected the system to the internet and not sure if I will but will add an update if I do. On your TV screen a window divided into for appears with live images form each camera, a C on each screen denotes that it is recording continuously and the 500 GB hard drive will hold plenty of video. It can be adjusted to record when motion is detected and individual cameras can be set to record or not.

It has a lot of features, a few "help" videos are available on the included CD which offers a player for the video playback on your PC if you plan tot use it that way.

For the price, it is an OK system but I am just concerned about the lack of quality built into this system.

Best Uses

  • Home or small business

I have this installed in my home and one of my rental properties. I also administer a number of 16 and 8 camera systems where I work. I have looked at just DVR's costing 2-3 times as much with no cameras and like this one better. The interface is intuitive. You can adjust the recording resolution on a per camera basis. This allows high resolution only where needed which extends how far back you can review.

Playback over the internet is limited to 1 camera at a time. Setting motion areas over the internet is difficult because it doesn't show the camera view so do it at the unit.

The top center position of the time stamp blocks areas I want to view and can't be changed. Bottom center would be better. Peoples feet would be blocked instead of faces.

Can easily make a .avi file of recorded video which will play on any windows media player equipped PC.

The smartphone blackberry interface is great - touch screen - 1 camera at a time. Also the programs that set your router up work great if you have a router on the list.

The camera pictures are OK up to 30-40 ft away. You will need higher resolution models beyond that distance.

Night vision is good up to 15-20 feet. Limited beyond that.

I liked this ECO version better than the pricier edge unit. For the money, I don't think you can beat it.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Good value, easy to use, good image quality

I've been watching the price of security cameras drop for a while, but the price of this package really caught my attention- the same package is being sold at Costco right now for $50 more! Just a few years ago, a good IR illuminated camera would cost well over $100, and a 4-channel DVR would cost $350 or more- and here we have four cameras and a DVR for less than the price of a DVR alone. So just how good is this package?

Pretty good, actually! I've only got one of the four cameras set up so far, but it works very well. Image quality is good, and the IR illumination provides coverage out to the boundaries of my small suburban lot. Setup is very easy. Plug a VGA video monitor (I happened to have a Hitachi LCD display left over from my last Windows system) into the DVR,, plug in the power and mouse, optionally run a cable to your Internet router, and you're ready to start adding cameras. Each of the four supplied comes with a wall wart power supply, a mount, and 60' of cable, which is probably enough to cover the typical small business or home with careful DVR placement. The cable carries both video AND power, so you can locate your power supplies on a strop alongside the DVR itself- much easier than running two cables, or trying to find power near the camera (although that's an option.) I'd like to mount one camera on the front of my detached garage, which means I'll have to make up a custom cable for that location. I've got a spool of surplus silicone-filled, burial RG-6 that should work, and I can pick up power for the camera in the garage.

My single camera is temporarily mounted out a second-floor window in the back of the house, but I'll be adding the others once I decide where to drill, and where to run the cables. The easiest thing to do would be to put the DVR in the basement, along with all my networking equipment. You'd think having the DVR in the basement would be kind of pointless, but one of the really nice things about this system is that it's networked. You can view the DVR output from any computer on your home network- or if you've got a smartphone, from pretty much anywhere. There's a motion detector built into the DVR that allows you to program it to send you alerts via phone, another very useful feature that used to only be available on high-end systems.

Summary: For the money, there's a lot of hardware here. Time will tell how well it holds up under use, but so far it looks like a good value for the homeowner or small business owner looking for a good video security system that won't break the bank.

Good middle of the road system

We tested this for about a week, in various situations. The fact that the system has hard-wired cameras meant our testing was limited to a reach within cable distance. For a permanent installation, you can stick these anywhere. They are both outdoor and indoor use.

If you think that you will be able to enjoy split screen use on your PC monitor, it won't happen. This system needs its own monitor. If you hook it up to your PC monitor, you'll have to unhook it to use your monitor for PC use. However, you are able to view as many cameras as you have hooked up (comes with 4) at once, via a quad screen display.

You can access your camera images, live, online (instructions in manual). However in actuality this caused some difficulty. The images would freeze, lag, or otherwise not update, on a pretty regular basis. Hours spent trying to figure out why, left us frustrated. It was the same from our smartphone as it was on a remote computer.


* The recording is crisp and clear, ID'ing someone on the recordings should be easy if necessary

* It works just as well in low/no light as it does in regular lighting

Compared to other cameras we have tested in this price range, this is a great system at a great price, if you don't mind the cons.

This is comparable to a much pricier system we installed at our shop, and in my opinion the video quality and ease of playback on this Lorex system are actually superior.


* Not wireless

* It needs its own monitor

* Online viewing can be spotty and tedious

* I had to buy another cable to work with the system

Overall however we liked this system very much, the quality of the images on this system is better than many higher priced systems, and the ease of playback and finding events was impressive. We will eventually install this system throughout the house and enjoy using it full time.
