Purchased 12/02/15. COSTCO price, $469, is very reasonable for this top of the line Complete Package. The components (DVR, Cameras, cables, etc.) were of sturdy, high quality. Full 1080p picture quality of the cameras, both day and night vision, is very clear. 130’ day and 90’ night vision is a long ways. Camera motion detection is very sensitive, even picking up a car ½-block away coming down the street. 2TB HD recordings of all 8 cameras recorded for over a month before recording over. Cameras may be viewed anywhere in the house you have another TV/monitor connected to the DVR via HDMI cable. FLIR Cloud viewing of all cameras is excellent, with many options, including zooming in with any camera – especially handy if you want to see if a package has been delivered to your front door. Setup, as far as connecting the components, is easy. However, some may prefer to hire someone to run the cables through the attic, between each camera’s exterior house location and the DVR. Technical Support was very helpful with a couple questions I had & helped me customize system to my desired settings. There are many more customizable features/settings I have yet to read & learn about. For example, you can be e-mailed, with camera footage, when an alert you setup is triggered. I would have gave 5 Stars, except that I received one camera misassembled causing the picture to be upside down & one power cable not receiving power to the DVR for one camera. Purchased through COSTCO, a call to COSTCO’s Concierge Service contacted Lorex & a replacement camera & power cable were overnighted to me. I have not had any other problems. I feel safer knowing that my home & property is being monitored 24/7 by high-resolution cameras. I like being able to switch over to the cameras on my TV.
