Camera system is great, but the Customer Service is HORRIBLE!!!!!! I have been trying to get a replacement camera, that is under warranty, since 7/25/16, and as of writing this review it is now 8/22/16, almost a complete month has gone by and I still don't have my replacement camera. When I call Customer Service I can never get anybody, and I actually held on their phone for 1 hour on 8/17 before I hung up, and as of writing this today I have been on hold for a total of 30 Minutes, which is past your ," your wait time is currently 30 minutes automated answer." I have sent their customer service multiple emails and have yet to receive any response back. The one time I did get customer service and talk to a supervisor, he assured me that they were taking care of the problem and would send me a shipping confirmation the next day, but still have not received anything. When I told him about all the emails that I have sent, he said that he saw all of them and would make sure he passes this problem on so it would not happen again. I have sent two emails since then, but no response to my dismay. I am writing this in hopes that they will finally respond to me or actually reach out to me to resolve these problems, but I do not have much faith. This is a great product, but I hope that if you are looking into buying this product that you have no problems with it. If you do, you will be dealing with the CRAPPY CUSTOMER SERVICE, and be stuck in a never ending loop of "I am sorry for you wait," the automated holding service, or never getting a call back when you go that option. Lorex PLEASE FIX YOUR HORRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE, Thanks!!

We're very sorry for any difficulty you experienced. We are happy to have resolved this for you and hope the replacement is working well.

I am pleased with the performance of this product. I have very recently had this installed at my business and have not had a chance to completely explore all of the interface yet, but what I have used seems easy to navigate and the picture quality seems to be nice. Also, the night vision works well. This system is definitely worth the price I paid. Their call in customer service is not what it should be, having called two times previously. However, the customer service I received through email was a much better experience and I was able to get my concerns addressed properly and respectfully.

Most of the installation went as directions said in the material. Few errors that cost extra time. The DDNS setup needs a great deal of work but the other pages of registration were easier to follow directions. I would say we received a system as good as the cheaper price we paid.

So far off to a bad start. Out of the box the DVR is set to the highest resolution there is, so it took me over an hooking it up to 5 TVs and 2 monitors to finally get the DVR to display so i could change the resolution. Seems like it would just make more since to factory set it to a lower level and have the option to change after set up. Next i wanted to download the FLIR CLOUD to my PC. You would think they would have the download easy to find and ready to go. Well after some searching i finally found it and when i click the link to download it just redirects me to another page that has nothing to do with the FLIR CLOUD?. I had a NIGHTOWL security system before this and it was very user friendly compared to this. I hope it get easier from here. I will add another review once i get this all set up.

We're sorry to hear you have been having difficulty setting up your system. You can find the full manual and the software downloads under the documentation tab of the product page.

Our technical support team would also be happy to assist you and can be reached at 1-877-755-6739.

I absolutely love lorex's camera systems. I have installed a system at every house i have owned slowly working my way up the total camera count and quality ladder. They are easy to hook up, Connect to the internet and find out why my packages keep ending up in my grill...Delivery guy thinks this is a game. The price for quality is on mark, Reliability is outstanding, The phone app is a breeze to use. The beep to notify you that something has gone awry will scare the crap out of you at 3am when your not expecting it but is very nice to have (Someone decided to cut the cable outside and it beeped to notify me that it lost feed to a camera, Conduit and a "Shoot on sight" sign took care of that problem). The night-vision is great, The large field of view makes covering mine and my unsuspecting neighbors tree line easy with less cameras. A possible irritation with some people is that the fan is a little loud but with my 1990s PC right by it making little vortexes with its fans solves that issue for me. Overall love it, Hope to find a need for a lot more.

This system is easy to set up and any confusion about connecting through PC or Apple or Linux or Smartphones can be easily resolved by the excellent support staff.

Motion Detection is what I want, and setting that up by camera was interesting - but the help screen? Hmmm, I couldn't find that. So I had to figure it out. And I did.

I have another system at another location, and it has performed without fail since I bought and installed it in May 2015.

I would give it a 5, but there is always room for improvement! Ha ha.

Bought this system from Costco a week ago today. Except I bought the 1080p version, I just couldn't find it to review it. We got it all set up in a few hours, only using 6 of the 12 cameras in our apt. We use one for our outside patio watching our cars and the others in entry points in the house. Set up was wonderful and simple, the cords are marvelously long (which I was worried about, but Costco said we could return if it didn't work out), the mobile app is great and interactive! My only complaint was the sensitivity was so delicate that the sun rising was setting off the motion detection. After finding a tutorial online we were able to change the settings quite easily. Would definitely recommend this product, I already have such a great peace of mind. Thanks lorex!

Upgraded from an 8-channel 720p Lorex system to a 16-channel 1080p system (LHV221600). Was able to use all existing wiring so camera setup was easy. Day/Night imaging quality is excellent. The Android phone app was also easy to setup (5 minutes), and it works very well. Only negative is the user manual - it does not explain things very well so it took a lot of trial and error to get all the settings correct. Overall, it's a very nice system.

After completing all the work to finish the wiring the cameras seem to work wonderfully. My husband and I both agree we wish the menu would be more user friendly if they were labeled with words rather than icons. The system has been flawless otherwise. We LOVE the mobile viewing options.

I am so fed up with Lorex Support. It is by far the worst experience ever for support. I have had several phone conversations with them and they still have not shipped a replacement camera. If you are considering purchasing a Lorex system DO NOT DO IT. Go to another company. Here is what happened. I purchased a 16 channel, 12 camera system from Costco on 08/22/2015. One of the Cameras turns out to be bad. This is my 5th system purchased through the years. My second Lorex. Their support has been absolutely horrible. A complete disaster. Nothing but a verbal run around with lies and no results. First call to them on 08/25/2015. They required model of system, model of camera, serial number of dvr, of camera, etc. Explained to them how I tested and know the camera is bad for a fact. They said they would send out a replacement right away. Next day, received an email requesting purchase receipt. Scanned and emailed receipt, etc. etc. etc. " Called again. "Will ship one out right away, etc..... ", Two weeks later; nothing. Another call to (888)425-6739. "This was suppose to be taken care of, etc. etc. etc.". Was told someone would be contacting me in 3 to 5 days? For what? They have all the information. No contact. 09/17/2015 On hold for 33 min. Transferred to supervisor. Will be calling to authorize replacement. Will call me back in 1 hour. Never called. 09/24/2015. Called Costco for help. Costco called Lorex. Costco got a complete run around from them too. (Costco has been great btw!) Here is there support routine. "So sorry to hear about that. I will be happy to help you.", etc. etc. etc. I will have somebody call you in 1 hour." I ask for what? You have all my info. Transfer to Supervisor. "I'll get this taken care of", etc. etc. "Somebody will be calling you in 1 hour. " You will never receive that call. "I need to call Canada for the replacement." They are closed. It's early afternoon. My support ticket number with Lorex is: 1284847. Case number with Costco: 6892740. I will be contacting Costco's upper management; writing a letter with these issues to corporate. Hopefully Costco will drop Lorex like a hot potato and Lorex will go out of business. BTW: I purchased 4 more cameras to make it a full 16 for about $70 per camera; including cables. How much could it possible cost Lorex for 1 camera?

We apologize for the difficulty you have experienced. It is not our intent to make the replacement process difficult. Thank you for your feedback.

Bought this system from Costco to replace a failed system (bad things happen when the electric company sends 35K Volts through your house wiring). System is being used to monitor both our house and our barn. Clear picture, easy to configure, and very flexible. So far no issues with camera or DVR. Highly recommended.

I purchased this system through Costco Canada to replaced my 8 years old Q-see system. At first I wanted to buy the 1080P system but then changed my mind and bought this unit due to 2 main reasons. 1. First reason was price different. 2. Second reason was the wiring. With this system I can use my existing cables which save a lot of hassle. The picture quality was much clearer compare to my old system. Setting up remote viewing on iPhone, iPad and Android tablet was much easier than my old system too. I am, however, having issues with remote viewing on my laptop. I can connect and view the cameras once I am at home only. Night vision works well at night as long as the cameras are not angled too close to the brick walls. Motion detection is a gimmick, it does not work very well. You end up receiving too many false notifications. Over all, it is a very good unit for the money. Highly recommended.

I have a 16 channel LHV10162T system. It replaces a 4 channel system - same DVR series. I love it. Pictures are clear, many good features on the DVR. Lots of adjustable options to make it do what you want. Hardest part is deciding camera location and placing the wires. I do have a need for more than 60 feet of cable and they do have the longer lengths available for purchase. I have no problem recommending this system. You might need to double think some of the options but I would want the option even if it takes a little study and testing to make it function the way you want.

8 cameras in 9 months have gone dead. Customer service and the ticket system is a joke. I can't wait on the phone for an hour to talk to somebody. I have a life. One month since my last ticket and 0 as in ZERO response from Lorex. Reubin Klein should be ashamed of himself for allowing this company to be run like a Dilbert cartoon.

LHV1000 series purchased directly from Lorex: I wish I could return this system since I cannot use it for the intended purpose, which is as a security system that will notify me via email when there is motion on the property. While it will do this, you will have to sort through literally 100+ emails PER CAMERA, PER DAY because of how it detects motion. As confirmed by a completed ticket with technical support, the change in daylight due to the movement of clouds in the sky is considered motion. No, not the movement of the shadow cast by the cloud...the change in daylight under a covered porch due to the passing of the cloud. Yes, you read that correctly. Even after tweaking all sensitivity and threshold settings WITH the assistance of technical support and AFTER ensuring there are no moving shadows of any kind in the motion grid (including the shadow of the cloud itself), it will still detect and email you every time the shadow of a fixed object (e.g. your house) appears and disappears with the passing of a cloud in the sky. To me, this is unacceptable. If a shadow is cast from a fixed object by moving light (e.g. car headlights) in a way that the shadow itself moves, I can agree that this should be considered motion. However, the appearing/disappearing of a non-moving shadow should not be considered motion. Yes, with the rising/setting of the sun, the shadow will appear to slowly move throughout the day. At that rate though, it would be like getting an email every few minutes as a snail makes its way across the motion grid. Again, unacceptable. Pros: good resolution, easy to use interface (both directly on a monitor connected to the DVR and through a PC connecting locally on the network), works as expected on overcast days with consistent lighting Cons: do not expect to use this as your primary security system outdoors, unless you want to sort through hundreds of emails daily that show the shadow of your house appearing and disappearing throughout the day.

Purchased the lhv1000 series from Costco. This is my second system from Lorex. Got this one for the high definition cameras to view the wildlife I have around the house.The image quality is far superior to the old system. Reading a license plate is very easy with the digital zoom. The setup was very easy as the old lorex sd system cables were already run. It was a plug and play for the cameras. Had one bad camera out of the box and was taken care of by customer service. Had a few issues with setup but got that resolved with tech support. Love the system and the quick response from the people at Lorex. I highly recommend the Lorex system to anyone.

We just installed this about a month ago, the image quality is very good. Wonderful system for the price, Lorex support is very friendly and knowledgeable. Definitely worth the money I would recommend this system to anybody. We are in the process of setting up the Lorex DDNS which is not so user friendly. The Flir cloud software is pretty easy to use.

I just finished installing my Lorex DVR system evearthing seems to be working great my only complaint is the hard drive is too noisy in the evening I can hear it throughout the house. I've had other systems with 500 gigabyte hard drives that didn't make any noise.

I am pleased with this LHV1016 model. The day time image quality is pretty good. I upgraded from a 960H Lorex system (Model LH314000) and I expected the 720P to be better than what it is, however it is about twice as good as the previous 960H unit. The IR Night vision is only a little better than the previous unit. If you turn on a light outside to aid in the night time viewing, the quality is drastically better that the previous unit. The user interface is a huge improvement over the last unit. This one does come with a remote, however using it to do more than change the camera view or number being viewed is quite difficult. I mainly view the cameras on my upstairs TV. I programed a universal remote to replace the factory one that came with the unit (so I didn't have another remote laying around) I use an "IR repeater" to send the IR remote signal from upstairs to the basement, where the DVR is located. Using the mouse to navigate the system is the best way to go. I bought a 30 foot USB extender cable and ran it from the DVR to the upstairs area by the TV. I bought a wireless mouse and I plugged the mouse receiver into the end of the USB extension cable. I mainly use the remote to view and change channels and I have the wireless mouse next to my recliner to navigate the user interface and view the recordings and settings. The cameras are all plastic. They have 3 mounting adjustments, which were adequate for getting the view angle how I wanted. I purchased two IR illuminators to assist in night time viewing. I am having a few little issues with the software but with the automatic firmware updates I hope they will be addressed. I have emailed tech support to make them aware. The fan on the unit is about 3 times as loud as the previous unit. You should definitely plan on having the DVR in a well ventilated cabinet to keep the noise from bothering you. The remote viewing was very simple to set up and functions well. With this unit, you must use Lorex brand HD cameras. The previous unit I had would accept any camera, so it was easy to find a better "night vision" camera for certain areas that needed additional distance.

Great system for the price. Contacted the Technical Support and they were very helpful and were able to resolve the problem. Hold time was minimal. Did not use the cables that supplied with the system, since the house is pre-wired. Attached BNC male connectors to my Coax, connected Male&Female 2.1x5.5MM DC Power Jack Plug to my power wires, and plugged them into the system The DVR puts out some heat and fan noise. The fan is running at all time. Would recommend installing it in a place where the noise does not bother you too much. Since the DVR is in a closet without a monitor, I use laptop PC to connect via Internet Explorer Web Browser (type the internal IP on the browser) or PC FLIR Client for viewing and configuring the DVR. Also setup DDNS for remote viewing as well. FLIR cloud was easy to install and configure. I use FLIR on the phone and PC to connect via client port when out and about (it works with 3G/4G), and use internal IP address when at home. The PC FLIR Client can be found under Downloads tab on the product page. Play back mode on PC FLIR Client works well, but the via Web browser needs some improvement due to its lack of functionality and ease of maneuver. Cameras produce good picture during daytime and okay at ambient light when dark. In the no light area, the vision is limited.

The cameras are great day and night vision. I'm not a tech. person so i'm still learning how it all works. The installation was pretty easy except the crawling around in the attach, simply just run the wires and plug every thing in. I really hope tech support is cooperative because i have problems in this area. As time goes by i will write further reviews.

Easy Upgrade and Install. I upgraded my older Lorex Link (LH408000) system with this newer HD 720P model and could not be happier with the installation and setup. I was able to reuse most of my existing cables and mount locations for my cameras, which made the installation go very quickly. The new cameras have much clearer picture quality in both day and night mode. I tried a couple different IP based cameras from different manufactures and none of them had the night time picture quality of the Lorex system. Also installed the PTZ camera and was presently surprised that I did not have to run a extra RS485 cable for PTZ control, it uses digital signaling via the RG59 video cable. The FLIR cloud made connecting my IOS devices for remote viewing very easy, however I prefer the use of the Web Client for remote Windows viewing.

So far, so good... It took several weeks for the product to arrive but I did purchase during the black Friday sale. Setup was pretty easy. It was pretty much plug and play. The camera quality is great. I hope it is durable and lasts. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because Lorex customer "service" leaves a lot to be desired. I called several times to inquire about my late order and I was on hold for 20 minutes before I gave up and left a call back number...I never received a call back. This happened twice. No reply to my two emails either. I finally got a reply back once my order had arrived. All is well now but I hope I don't have any warranty issues.

Great system! A serious upgrade over what we had. Picture quality is great. Installed it ourselves with no problem. Setting up the features in the system itself was a little bit of a challenge but the manual and online information got us through it without much of a problem. Even in low light situations after the store has closed for the night, the picture quality is excellent. Excellent value in this system.

I was pleased with this product. It is much better quality than the Eco version I previously bought. Definitely worth the money the first time around to purchase the HD version. Tech support is very helpful and gets it all hooked up quickly and easily, even for home/business owners that are tech novices. To do it all your self, though, you have to be pretty darn savvy. Only had the product installed for a few weeks now, but no problems yet.

We have purchase two Lorex Systems since 2010. We have been pleased with the camera's and the support over the last four years. However, we were told these systems are now obsolete and no longer support by Lorex tech support (any problems I now have, I have to sort them out myself). We have now purchase a new system and hopefully we will have good tech support as in the past and that the system will not go obsolete in a few years.
