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 cables (providing both video and power transmission) transmit HD images over every channel. Ideal for large properties, you can install analog HD cameras like the LBV2723B up to 800 feet away from the DVR (see documentation for complete details). The 8-channel DVR is also backwards-compatible, which allows you to expand your security coverage by using older compatible BNC cameras. Accommodate up to four additional analog BNC security cameras with this system to maximize your security coverage.

Lorex cameras have been some of the best consumer cameras for a long time. This product shows their commitment to bringing high quality equipment into the hands of everyday people. The advanced features may require technical knowledge but if you RTFM, the basic features including mobile view are almost ready out of the box. Great quality and great service all around.

I have had this home surveillance system for approximately two years. While the technology improves almost monthly with camera systems, I have felt that this system has been very good. HD systems and wireless camera systems would be the way I would go if I were buying a new system today but the system I have has been adequate. I would certainly buy Lorex again. When I have had issues, their technical team has been very helpful and resolved the issues.

System came packaged well and shipping was very fast. Camera installation was a snap and connected up to the DVR with absolutely no issues.

Camera quality exceptional both day and night.

Flir Cloud iPhone app installed and connected seamlessly. This is absolutely the best remote app for installing the camera angles since you can view what the camera sees while your setting up the camera mount. One warning with this app. It uses CELL DATA so be sure to use it as little as possible and don't forget to turn off the USE CELLULAR DATA option under SETTINGS-CELLULAR to prevent using up all of your phone data quickly. Just remember to turn it back on to view the cameras on your phone.

Desktop application took just a little to figure it out once installed but was basically simple. The PLAYBACK of recordings is effortless and works like a charm.

Love everything about the DVR except I would have appreciated an explanation as to setting up the SENSITIVITY and THRESHOLD for motion detection. There was NONE. After playing around with it I found out how to set these settings.

Overall this is a great security system and I would recommend it if your looking for a quality unit.

I initially had issues purchasing the system and then received two wrong of four cameras. Web & phone sales, Logistics, etc. are all outsourced and are not part of Lorex. There are significant gaps and delays in the process that likely wouldn't exist if they brought all this in house. It actually took a few (annoying) days to place an order and then a few days more after I received my order to actually get what I ordered. But after a two week (ordeal) its now corrected.

Everything is made in China but probably at least inspired by FLIR engineering as the system seems well designed. For all those with vinyl siding you can just screw the camera right to the siding without a block or any cutting providing the slat is 4" wide or more.

The cameras themselves provide an excellent daylight image. Zoom works well but is a little slow to focus. The image is very crisp when it finally gets there. Color is a little washed out indoors. During my indoor experiment, it was hard to tell the difference between color and night vision even in a fairly well let room. Night vision kicks in very prematurely indoors. It works correctly outdoors though. There is a hint of noise that very few would notice with a direct monitor connection. The 60ft cables they provide are OK quality, but I purchased better 100 foot ones for two of the runs.

Night vision has an adequate image with a large well illuminated spot in the middle of the image surrounded by darkness. I estimate that at the widest angle only about 60% of the image is illuminated. Zooming in at night with night vision should be avoided as the camera can't seem to refocus itself. I needed to do it manually and its not easy. Best to wait until morning. It may just be what I have the camera pointed at which is mostly blacktop.

The FLIR installer software goes through the motions, but actually does not install on my Windows 7 PC. I couldn't resolve it. I need to use the web interface which mostly automatically installs two drivers that allow this to work. The FLIR sofware installed easily on my Android Phone and works well locally. Despite my best efforts and being a (self proclaimed) networking expert I have been unable to connect to my system from other locations. Lorex has a Dynamic DNS that is supposed to redirect your web requests to their website to your DVR. It seems to be setup correctly, but it doesn't work for me. I'll contact tech support when I have a few hours at home to kill.

The software when using the DVR directly seems to work well, but it has a quirk when setting motion detect. The pop up window that allows setting the threshold disappears when you move the mouse. Setting must be done using the web interface.

Another oddity is that the DVR records constantly even though its set to motion detect recording. Maybe I have something wrong, but I doubt it. This has the disadvantage of using up disk space, but has two advantages. When you view motion detected video, much of the pre and post detected motion such as the delivery guy actually getting out of the van is not captured. Its a van pulling up, guy almost getting out, guy already in, van driving away. If you view the full capture by using the time stamp of the motion detected video, you get to see everything including the package actually being delivered.

If you are into web security you will be shocked at the DVR's web login with its unchangeable admin user name and 6 character maximum password size (you can add additional users). The connection does not use https so its not encrypted and your password is sent in the clear anyway. FLIR should know better with all the military projects they do.

In summary this is a pretty good camera system that is a best value (especially when they have an additional discount). There is no other system (that I found) that has 1080P high resolution motorized zoom cameras and a decent DVR for this price.

Great system. Cams have a nice picture day or night. The only thing I didn't like was the lack of a good set up manual. You have to download it from the web which is fine but I found it to be vague.

I have installed several video camera systems in the past. Usually there is a bit of a process in setting up the network requirements for the customer to access the cameras.

With this system, there was zero setup network wise. Just plug it in, make sure it has internet access. Nothing more!

I looked like a genius with my client because after the PVR install they could watch from their devices as I installed the cameras.

I definitely will be recommending this to other clients.

As well the cameras worked flawlessly in all environments.

This is my 3rd DVR since i last purchased, had a issue with the Hard drive in my 1st DVR so i called Customer service and they were very nice to replace the whole DVR, after 2 weeks i had issues with 4 of my Cameras and Lorex Tech Support and customer service replaced all 4 cameras under warrenty , between sending and receiving the cameras the 2nd DVR had issues So they have replaced the DVR now.
I did ask the customer service to see if they can upgrade the DVR as suggested by Tech support and that i was willing to pay the difference of price but they did not oblige.
anyway they are keeping up with the warranty.
The problem is Lorex wants me to send the Parts first (I pay for Shipping) and 4-5 days after they receive they will ship the replacement.
i would suggest that they should ship replacement parts along with return shipping label to make things easier for customers.
My 5 stars to the Tech Support Team. they do a very good job.
Customer support need lots of improvement.

This is a great product it has a great security program it also has an application in which you can stream live straight from your phone, the only flaw would be that the screws are weak when you drill them in. besides that this product is great I would recommend to anyone.

The Customer Support was very easy to get in contact with and very helpful. After some questions answered, they helped me cancel the order and gave me alternatives, then placed the order for a different system. Thought about that system for that evening, then called customer support again and canceled that order. No problems at all, no questions asked. Reviewed again for a few more days and finally decided on a third system, and placed that order again on line.
Receive the System about a week later and all was what I ordered. Activated the system and all worked great, no problems other than getting email alerts.
Called technical support and after about an hour of trouble shooting and setup, got my email alerts running properly. All working fine now.
Great system, clarity is great and got sound working as well as can log in from my cell phone and computer to watch Live and do Playback.
Would recommend this product to anyone.

Great product at a reasonable price. The smartphone app was easy to set up and works well, and Lorex tech support did a good job helping me be able to view the cameras from a remote computer.
The new 900TVL cameras are a definite improvement over the cameras from my last surveillance system - probably as good as I can get without moving up to HD.

I purchased this system to replace an old Lorex system that was installed at our facility a number of years ago. This system worked perfectly with our older wireless cameras and was simple to install. Installing the viewing software on our computers and cell phones was just as simple. The night vision capability of the cameras is more than sufficient for our location and provides us with the security monitoring we were looking for.

Hello all, tried many DVR's and have found that the Lorex LH1085C8 12 Channel with cameras has been the best in setup time and price, We didn?t need the cameras at the time of order but knew that we would as time goes by, we did put 3 cameras to use in locations that we were concerned about, we like to have cameras pointing at other cameras locations so any attempt to disable a camera we will have notice of that happening and by who. We are very happy with the ability to check our home and our dog when we are away from our home, email notice for back walkout basement door, and other features like free DDNS and Smartphone access are just a few of the things that make this a great system. Thanks LOREX

Location: Denver, NC

I purchased the LH1085C8 Security DVR system with 8 night security cameras, along with a 19" monitor and thus far, I am thoroughly pleased with everything about this system. From the very first time I spoke with a customer service rep upon my initial investigation of what type of system to buy, to the hook up and use of the system, it's been a very pleasurable experience. A 2 year old could hook this up and use it. This system has so many features that I probably will never use 1/2 of them. I would also add, that for the amount of money I spent (and what a great deal I got from Lorex), I have received far beyond what I expected. The Only thing I would suggest, is that you send more than just "1" window sticker and you should offer a variety of placards or signs that can be used a signage in a yard or in my case, on a entrance gate.

I purchased a LH130 ECO2 series with 8 cameras. The installation was not difficult. The cameras have very good resolution and the infrared works well during the dark hours.
I am able to view the 8 cameras from our main TV and through a small monitor at the DVR site.
I am not a computer wizard and have called the support twice to resolve the remote accessing
of the system. They must be very busy due to the fact that you are on hold 30 to 60 minutes waiting for a tech. The setup wizard is very good but I believe I need to be as smart as it is.
Dont get discouraged, about the remote accessing It will all come together.
I just need more phone time with the tech.

I am most impressed with the night vision that this surveillance system has, in the daytime the cameras are very clear. and the many features that this system is capable of doing. The remote connectivity has proven to be bit time consuming, but the install was very simple. This is my second security system that I have purchased from Lorex and I was impressed with my old cameras, this new one is well worth the money. A definite buy for someone that wants a good clear security system.

Camera installation and DVR setup went well. Impressed with resolution and picture quality of system. Cabling and patch work were time consuming but not difficult. I purchased out of box and was disappointed to find out that MAC address had already been registered by the prior owner so I was not able to establish the DDNS to view remotely.
Since Customer Service/Technical Support is not available over the weekend I will need to complete installation later this week and I am somewhat disappointed as this is the primary access point/reason for purchasing system.

The camera system is awesome for the price you pay you get a very good quality system good quality video and I couldn't`t believe how easy is to install. I got pricing from a security system company and it range from $ @ 2000 to 3500 that's insane. I would recommend the system or any lorex product to any one home or business. I used mine for home.

I installed 6 of the 8 cameras. The installation was easy enough and the quality of the video is good. The night video is ok.600 TVL camera is good during daylight,This really seems to be a great value for the money.
Phone Support sucks(On the phone listening to the same recorded messages at least for 20-30 minutes. Once the agent on the phone, they are pretty good.
Awesome to be able to see the live view over the computer, phone, iPad, iPhone!!! Mulitple systems work great together!!

Installed half of the cameras into an existing pre-wired unit. I have found the cameras rather fuzzy but will see how things go. Maybe need to put in new wires too. Have not got there yet. Would be nice if there was a female/female power connector adapter as I had problems connecting to already run wire. The set-up and programming of the unit was easy and done in a short period of time. Seems to be a decent system.

We tesetd 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. PROS 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 tesetd 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. CONS 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.

I had my system install by my cousin who is a cable installer . Installation was fairly simple for him took about 6 hours to install 7 cameras . We had to contact Lorex support to get online viewing setup which took about another hour . All in all I am happy with the system I have had up and running for about 3 months . i may add additional camera inside home in future .

Finally have it all set up. Took a couple weeks to run lines to all cameras. They are all up and working fine. Cameras offer good view of property. System has most every option one could ask for. Can monitor it from TV, any PC in house, laptop anywhere on the planet, and my android phone. Put audio on 3 cameras and it gets passed along to all monitoring devices.
Great system for the price.

On this side of having a bad power supply out of the box, so far I'm happy. I will update my review as soon as I get my replacement power supply, and get the system up and running.

Camera model # MC 7662 not a "super resolution" past about 10 ft. System LH118501B my be ok for indoor close in security but to cover approaches to my home it is like totally out of focus past 3 yards night vision works ok but same low res video. CS ok, but Technical service hard to understand, they don't speak Kentucky English, and completely no help with focus issue, Still I may replace this system with a 1080p HD system for about 3 times the price, You really do get what you pay for, but that being said this system had a MSRP of $1299, on sale for $450, glad I am not stuck for more than the return shipping.

My brother had put a Lorex system at his house & he highly recommended Lorex. I had been researching security systems & when my brother showed me his system installed, I was convinced this system would work for me. He had installed it himself & explained how easy it was to do. I am a man with limited knowledge of electronics, after mounting the cameras, ran the cable to the dvr & it worked. I contacted Lorex tech support & the rest was done. It delivers a great picture on all cameras & I can watch it when I am away on business.
Easy to install & nothing to operate. Thx Lorex.

I am very happy with the product so far. I just installed the cameras this weekend but so far, very happy with the picture quality. One of the cameras did not screw onto the mounting bracket. I still need to call customer service to see about exchanging it so we will see how that goes. I love being able to view my cameras while away from home. I had to get a friend to help me set up the remote access feature.

Overall the systems performs very well. Took be about half a day to install all 8 cameras. Installation was very straight forward and cameras came online with no issues. Features worked as advertised. Features are fairly simple to configure and the cameras picture quality is OK considering the price. Keep your expectations realistic based on price and you should be very please with the product.

There are some annoyances...
The Mac support is a little lame and there is an iPhone app, but it looks horrible on and iPad. Not sure why they waste your time saying the app works for both, because it is very lacking and the video is unviewable in 2X and only tolerable in 1x on an iPad.
The motion detection seems a little quirky and very sensitive. It also will only send to one email address and sending to a phone via SMS seems to strip out the attachment.

All that, I feel that given the sale price and number of cameras it was a very good investment. The only reason for the 3 star instead of 4 star was the poor Mac options and lack of a true iPad app.

The other confusing part of the iPhone/iPad support is is the fact that there are 9+ different Lorex apps in the App Store. What was Lorex thinking?

First and foremost I have had nothing but positive, constructive experiences with Lorex altogether. They communicate well with customers and have done everything they promised me they would. When I had issues with one camera, they were quick to replace it for me and very helpful in making the order.

The system itself is wonderful. The picture quality is very clear and it even zooms to a certain extent. It does everything that it says in the box and we are extremely happy with the product. Although we don't use it often, the iPhone all is a great feature and gives us peace of mind when away from home.

Good choice for many applications

I purchased this item directly from Lorex via their "Open Box" program. Arrived as most of their open box sales, just like a new unopened, unused product. Takes a little bit of getting used to all the various features and functions, which vary from model to model, but did an excellent job for the person I put it in for. They don't use the iPhone features but I set it up so I could check it out and was really impressed. Resolution of the camera and recording is not the best for all applications, but for most the 420 line cameras are adequate. Its all a matter of budget. This was excellent for someone who didn't want to spend big money. The IR illuminated cameras were impressive. Their ability to see well in no light situations of a closed business were very satisfactory. Again you can get what your budget will allow but for a relatively low priced system this was impressive which is a good compliment coming from someone in the "professional" video surveillance business. I have discussed Lorex with other professionals and to my disappointment, the overall feeling is that they would never sell it because Lorex prices and packages systems for the beginner, end user type customers. Not that they are junk or substandard (which I don't find at all) but that they (the professional) can't make the profit that they would like to make on equipment sales. I have installed 4 different Lorex systems and have a 5th one on order for myself and believe that they meet or exceed the standards of so called "professional" systems barring the extreme special needs systems of some situations. (such as specialized cameras) Although I have read reviews that indicate poor tech support and response to problems, I have found on numerous occasions that this is not consistent with my experience. I have called several times on getting help to understand setup issues and found them to be extremely knowledgeable, helpful and professional, which has not always been my experience with "professional" equipment suppliers. I will admit that this is not necessarily the kind of system that I would recommend for the layman or kinds of people who are not "high tech" oriented or are computer illiterate. You will most likely struggle with and possibly fail in the setup, although I honestly think the people at tech service might even be able to pull you through it. I would recommend this system for many, but personally I have bought the LH328 model with higher resolution cameras and higher resolution recording capability for my personal use. It too has iPhone viewing capability which I really look forward to for my own use. All of the various Lorex models and packaging can be intimidating which makes it difficult for the newbie to pick the best system that fits his/her needs but with a little research even that can be made easier. I almost gave this 4 stars because higher resolution viewing and recording is somewhat lacking but then so is the higher price. Pay more and get more. It performed excellent for the price range system that it is.

Convenience and peace of mind is priceless!

We installed this Lorex video security system that we got from Amazon into our friends' business' new commercial real estate space 6 months ago, when it was being renovated. This system was one of the few items during that construction that was hassle free and worked perfectly. The installation of the 8 cameras was easy, as the system came with proper mounts, lots of cabling, and we only needed to pick up two BNC extension cords (also purchased from Amazon) for the farthest camera runs at the back of our warehouse. Other than plugging in the power cord, a monitor, an internet connection, and 2 minutes with their set-up wizard, that was it. As plug-and-play as it gets.

The video works excellent, day or night - there is a ring of Infrared LEDs on the cameras and you get that military style "night vision" green video when the lights are off. Still very clear and you can see dust, low light sources, and the IR light reflecting off a person's eyeballs. The DVR records all 8 video channels 24/7, which we can stream from within our local network, but the best part is the instant mobile viewing.

With the MEye app (and a secure login) we can stream any of the 8 video channels from anywhere in thwe world, using an iPhone or iPad (also apps for Blackberry and Windows phones). We tried the app that Lorex markets (LOREX Live) but had better results with MEye. We can be on the other side of the world, whip out our phones, start the sync, and view footage from any of the 8 cameras. Neat! If there is ever an alarm (which calls their phone) they can take a look and see if there is an actual intruder or if it's one of the employees who just mistyped the alarm disarm code. We can make sure they aren't slacking when we're gone - Big Brother is watching, hehe.

Very happy with the Lorex system after 6 months of use, it is a great product, and deserves a 5 star rating.

Works great.. Has been installed for over a year

We installed the Lorex over a year ago and it has worked great. The DDNS feature is nice. You can watch your security cameras via the web. I had two problems... 1) Internet Explorer 9 requires you to goto menu bar > tools > compatibility mode in order to login, ie you get the "login failed" try changing IE9 to "compatibility mode." The fan bearing went out and gave off a horrible noise for days. I replaced the fan, $9 and we are running quietly again.

Highly recommend the unit.. Particularly for the price on Amazon and Sams Club.

Good enough, nothing outstanding

We've played around with this system on and off for a few months now, and generally it works well though the system software and user interface is just passable. I found the image quality OK for its intended applications, but it's quite dependent on lighting (sun glare can be an issue) etc.

I've also talked with the people at the local quickie mart who have exactly the same system installed, and watched them use it for example when a customer dropped something going out the door and they were able to back up and get a look at the customer when he was in the store earlier in case he came back to retrieve the lost item.

This seems to be the best application, that of protecting a small business (especially retail) from shoplifting and other threats. The software is fairly easy to operate and does not require a huge amour of technical savvy. If someone can operate a VCR-type device you can probably teach them how to use this.

As a home-surveillance system it just seems like unnecessary over-kill unless you happen to have some serious crime issues in your area. For the person who thinks it would be cool to be able to watch eight approaches to their home at all times, my best advice is "just don't". Once you have the thing set up, you might find yourself unable to take your eyes off it "just in case" and honestly you'll probably be a lot happier without it.

Reduce the noise to the system

I bought the Lorex LH108 system over a year ago. It works well. It is not great but I think that would require an upgrade on the cameras. My biggest complaint was the noise. It was very loud. After a year of hearing that annoying noise I decided to figure out what was causing it. It could have been the hard drive, fan, or motherboard. It turns out that the rattling noise was the fan touching the metal casing on the back. I fixed the problem by putting pieces of tape between the fan and the metal covering. Do not block the vent or the fan will not be able to cool the system. Just put the tape between the fan and the metal casing kind of like putting wood trim on the inside of a window. That cushions the movement between the fan and the metal casing thus preventing the rattling noise. While I had the system opened I changed the 320 hard drive to a 1 Tera Byte hard drive. It was all very simple. I bought a Western Digital 3.5" internal Hard drive. After you install the new hard drive you have to format the drive. Just check the manual. If you do not have the manual go to the lorex website and look it up there. I am glad I did these things. It is too bad I waited over a year to see if the problem was fixable but at least I did it. Too bad that Lorex did not fix such a simple problem. By the way I bought this system at Costco for $599. I think it was on sale at the time. Good luck. S Fernandez

Decent System if You’re on a Budget

I'm no techno whiz, just your above average home DIYer. I felt comfortable with the installation and setup of this system but it is not without it's difficulties. The remote viewing setup was not what I would call simple which involves assigning port numbers on your LAN and port forwarding your router and such, but with a couple of calls to the Lorex technical assistance team all was setup properly. They were very helpful and are able to log onto your computer network and make changes to allow the system to work. However, I'm still not able to use remote viewing because my ISP service is too slow (which is no fault of Lorex). I have satellite internet and to upgrade from my home plan to the pro plan would cost more than I want to spend. Beside that, the system is easy to operate with either the mouse, remote control, or front panel keys. The video quality is just okay, not great. The DVR's hard drive is noisy (a constant low hum). It will do the job I want it to do which is to allow me to monitor the outside of my home and record activity while I'm gone. It might assist with identifying an intruder by what clothes they wear or what type of vehicle they drive, but I don't think the camera is capable of a tag # or facial recognition unless the subject is very close to the camera. As far as I know, this system is as good of one as you will get for this price. That being said, I am satisfied with my purchase.

Excellent value and outstanding performance

"I purchased the Lorex LH400 DVR for my language school in NYC. We wanted to be sure there was always video of the classes in case there is ever any accusation of improper teacher behavior. The system came with 8 cameras and it has been operating flawlessly for a couple of months now. I hooked up an external drive to the USB port and running backups is easy. We did have one power adapter go bad, and Lorex replaced it with no problems. Customer service was very good. It is also great to use the Lorex Client to monitor the school from my home or on the road. In fact, it might be a nice future feature to provide secured access to view only at certain times for certain cameras so we could let parents check in on their children while in class! I highly recommend this unit!"

Easy to Install and Operate

Let me start off by saying we have a small business that consists of a used car lot and repair shop. Every once in a while we have items stolen from cars on the lot or find that someone had dumped their garbage in our dumpsters. The Lorex LH108321C8B 8-Camera Network Video Surveillance System hopefully is going to put a stop to the invaders. After opening and inspecting the items in the box, we decided where we would set up the cameras to have the best visibility on the premises. We began installing the cameras at 10am and we finished by 3pm. Installation was simple and did not involve any really hard work except drilling holes into the aluminum siding and feeding the camera cables to an upstairs office. Only two screws mount the cameras. The only negative comment I can say about the installation is that the knob to secure the cameras does not "finger" tightened every well. When a strong breeze flew by, the camera would move. We used a wrench to tighten the position of the camera but made sure not to strip it. We connected the DVR to a 20" computer monitor by using an HDMI connector cable. We were impressed with the quality of the images. Colors are vivid and no really noticeable fuzziness. The only thing we noticed with the images is that scenes directly in front of the camera are crystal clear but as you look further past it starts to become less clear. We could not wait to see how the night vision worked. The next morning we reviewed the previous night's recording. It only used 47GB of the hard drive after 18 hours of continuous use. You do have the options of setting up specific times you want the video to record so you use less space on the hard drive. The night vision worked well except in areas where there was floodlights or streetlights. The images from those cameras were fuzzy. Just make sure to mount the cameras in areas that the camera view is not directly facing some type of night lighting. When reviewing the video you are able to pause it and zoom in on images. The DVR interface is extremely easy to navigate. You can select your options manually by using the buttons on the DVR or use the included mouse. I cannot really comment on the remote access options since we do not intend to use those features. However I will mention that I found it amusing how the instructions had a little picture and stated if you had to be highly skilled for certain connections. Included a one long ground cable which we had no clue where to put it since the directions did not mention it. The unit only comes with one "warning premises under 24 hour video surveillance" sticker. I wanted to have one warning sticker on all four sides of the building. You are able to purchase additional stickers, cable extensions and accessories directly from the manufacturers website. I ended up buying generic stickers and you can get them really cheap from Amazon, here is the link Security System Warning Stickers, 4-Pack. Overall, great camera system for a home or small business. Easy to install and operate.

Good item but Difficult to install

Once you install your camera system I think that you will be happy. However, until you get the system installed you might find it's more hassle than what its worth. There are a lot of hookups for it and you have to go through your ceilings due to all of the cords. The only other downside I have with this system is it is noisy.

Now to the upsides of the system. I love that the Lorex system comes with 8 cameras so it can properly monitor your property. I love that you can get images on your phone and computer because it makes it quite handy. The cameras are weatherproof which is very important for this type of item especially considering the cost of it. The images are pretty clear but not perfect but you can still make out the people.

This system is worth the money so buy today.

Great system, simple enough!

Lets start with the shipping and packaging. Upon opening the box, you will be presented with a very well packaged, organized, and easily appreciated setup. Pulling the cameras out first, I was impressed with their quality and overall look. The one thing with this system is that, if your building a new house, this unit would best be served to those who are able to get in and run the cables before they throw the walls on. You see, you have to run all the cables to places where you want the cameras. A wireless system would be pretty great, but Im sure those cost a fortune. Anyways, I just ran one cable for now from my basement to my garage (if I didnt have a basement, I would of definitely not of purchased this item). I was able to easily run the cable from my spot I setup the unit, down the wall to my basement, over to my garage area in my basement, up the basement wall, and i fished it out to the garage. From their I ran it to my driveway. After I got that completed, I setup the unit to test her out. The setup was easy, and I was immediately impressed with the pic quality and sharpness, even at night. Yes, this is no $20k security solution, but it will get the job done, and heck, I might even run some cameras out to my woods area in my backyard to watch the animals in my woods at night. I still haven't had much time to get install more cameras, etc. but I can tell it will be a pleasant experience in the future (if it doesn't break on me that is).

Great images, easy to set up, but one important note....

When I got the box, I was immediately impressed with the packaging, but I thought it was just too small to have everything. I was wrong. Each camera comes with its own 60 feet of cable, which was plenty for me. The first thing I did was read the manual, and it recommended checking each camera before putting it up, which is a very smart thing to do, because you don't want to find out something is wrong with a camera AFTER you wire it all and install it. With that said, I will tell you that hooking up the cameras were easy. The only thing I didn't like was a little play/slack in positioning the camera angle. Be ready to drill a lot of holes and repair them (caulk, etc.). This is a good time to note that Lorex sells wireless cameras, and would be probably be much easier to set up (certainly easier to install), and more difficult to disable (no worries about someone cutting a cable). So, how does it look? The images are great. Nothing like I had and crisp, even at night. Even with a bit of distance. The cameras are indoor/outdoor, so I have set them up around my house, inside and out. This really requires a bit of physical work, and running the wires was a pain, but no different than running any other kind of wire. This was the most time consuming for me, especially because I moved my router into my entertainment center and placed the DVR inside as well. The only problem with that is that the remote must have a very narrow path, because if I do not point it directly at it, nothing happens, so I wish it was a little stronger. I also am curious to see how it works when there are strong temperature changes, as well as how easily dew will form and how it will effect the images. It's great to see who is at my doors (front and side) as well as being able to monitor my backdoor and basement door as well as my driveway and front steps. I didn't have any problems, but my brother (who is a "computer guy") set everything up to my router, etc. I don't know that I would have been able to do that part of it least not easily.

Because of the wiring, etc., I think this system is better suited for an office setting, or for someone who is comfortable with DYI projects in the home. I think the wireless cameras would be best for the home.

For the price that Amazon is offering these at, I think there is a lot of value here. These are not cheap or flimsy components, angling of the cameras not withstanding. My local "wholesale" club offers a lorex with 4 cameras, so if you would like to see it in action, try your local one and see it there first then order this one.

Impressive Video Monitoring System

My intended use for the eight camera system is home monitoring. The capability of watching my home from other locations is an important feature I plan to utilize. This is my first video monitored security system, so my comments will reflect only my observations of this equipment. I have three PCs in my home on a local area network connected to the Internet with a wireless router. I will be attaching the system to a 22 inch monitor.

When I plugged the DVR into the router it automatically got a network address and then I put the address in Internet Explorer and a log in screen appeared on my monitor. Passwords are disabled as a default, but I'm sure I will change that setting so it requires a password. When completely installed, the screen shows frames for each of the eight cameras.

The first camera I set up was in a pitch black room (it was evening. I wanted to test the night vision. As soon as someone approached the doorway they appeared on the monitor with the entire room illuminated on the screen. In night vision's usual black and white, at a distance of 12-14 feet, a face was clearly visible and identifiable. Frankly, I was wowed -- this was one of those "isn't technology amazing" moments. Next, after temporarily mounting all the cameras, I checked the playback (recording) feature on each camera (automatic default)to ensure that feature was working. So, far, no problems.Next I needed to get a personal web address to view the cameras remotely from the Internet. On page 44 of the instruction manual the Lorex DDNS website is noted. Once there, I was prompted for my MAC (media access control) address found by going to the "main menu," selecting "advance" and then "info."

Batteries are included with the remote control. Note: there are no buttons on the remote control that light-up so when the batteries are dead it will be a matter of trial and error to determine they need to be replaced. I found the remote had to be aimed straight at the DVR. It didn't respond well if the remote was pointed slightly above, below or to the side.

There is no way to mount the camera in a fixed position where it won't move. No matter what I tried there was always a little play. So, if installed outside, a camera will be vulnerable to a strong wind, an object being hurled at it or even a stick being poked at it, so if possible mount the cameras in a sheltered location.

There is approximately 30 inches of cable attached to the camera that is then plugged into the 60 foot cable. For exterior installations, that section of cable needs to be installed inside a wall because the connections aren't weatherproof. Some security cameras run the cable through the mounting bracket so it isn't exposed at the installation site, and thus it is protected from both the elements and an intruder who can simply cut the cable to steal or disarm the camera. That is not the case with this camera, so there is ample reason to install as much as the cable into the wall as possible, leaving little exposed at the installation site.

Ultimately I am impressed with this system. Granted, it isn't a commercial grade set-up, but for a homeowner, the price is very reasonable and the cameras have a strikingly clear picture, even in pitch black applications. The downside for me is the temperature range, which although broad, isn't quite broad enough for me to safely install the cameras outside. Exterior installation in Colorado might always be an issue considering the number of snowstorms experienced each winter. The cameras might be frequently covered in snow and not provide helpful pictures even if the temperature range permitted installation.

The cameras work beautifully, and the computer set up was smooth. I haven't attempted to contact customer support so I can't speak to their responsiveness. For me, the wiring issue was minor, but that may or may not be an issue depending upon the installation site. So, far I am very pleased with the system. The ability to check on my dogs and my house remotely, and when home, being able to see who is approaching my driveway and front door, is to me invaluable. I don't know how the system will hold up over time, but I will update the review if I run into any problems.

Security camera for home use

My brother called me after he visited Fry's in Seattle. He said that Lorex was top of the line for home security cameras per a sales person he spoke to at Fry's. This was a fantastic price from Amazon and the shipping was free. My son installed it over the course of a week (planning where to place the cameras, etc.) and this system is great. The clarity is amazing both day and night. It's easy to operate for playback and we haven't had any problems at all. Hopefully if anyone comes on our property again, we can get a good pic to give to the police!

OK but not great

This unit works but has two downsides that would make me not buy it again:

When the fan comes on it sounds like a blender. I called Lorex and they don't have a solution. They say I can replace the fan with a quieter model at my expense. They also said that they were working on a firmware upgrade to lower the speed of the fan to descrease the racket- but I've checked their site twice in 2 months and no such offering.

Also, I'm not a camera expert, but the image is fuzzy on the recording. I doubt a face could be recognized at more than 20 feet even though the range is claimed to be much more. Lorex said "you must have forgotten to remove the protective film covering on the camera lenses" but my cameras were shipped in baggies that had no such film covering on the lenses.

Reviews are not looking too favoriable, I e-mail'ed Lorex asking if there were known bugs in software, never heard back. I think it best that I return unopened box to Costco and stay with MACE."
