I researched this product replaced my old system which, was another brand that was out dated and so hard to set up. I must have been on the phone with support six times, when you could get them. This unit was very easy to install and to get it set up. I recommend the Lorex brand. The pictures are crisp and clear. I have 3 vacant channels which I will be adding more cameras, and perhaps a PTZ.

I ordered the Lorex Dome Camera DVR Security System Model No. : L9-128D
With 8 HD Domes and 2TB DVR System to replace an older Swann Security Camera System. Best investment I've ever made. Easy setup, Great Quality product, and the images on the new cameras are great! Just a little info if you purchase them... The domes have a tiny .05" HEX key (SAE) screw which holds the dome cover ring in place. So make sure you have or buy yourself a small HEX Set to make installing easier.

Best Wishes,

This system replaced a previous Lorex camera system. Already had 4 720p cameras, but the price was right. Hard drive died on old system, and this one has all the bells and whistles.

Out of the box install was easy. Hookup of iPhone a breeze. Additional devices proved a problem. Called support, and after a lengthy wait, they treated me like I was the only client they had! Resolved all issues. Love the system.

I purchased this product after months of research and finally had enough time to install it this last weekend. These camera are superior to the others in there class. for the price and what you get the quality of the product is pretty exceptional. I am pleased to have purchased this product. Set-up was a little difficult only becuase I have some different type of devices already on my network. making sure that you you know what devices is using what port is the biggest key. the tech support was a breeze to deal with. after being a know it all and spending 6+ hours trying to figure out which device was confliting with the DVR and why on my own, they were able to resolve my issue for me in aboiut 15min once I got someone on the phone. I will update the review as things progress with my product familiarity.

Today I called Tech support and the automated message said I was in a que for the next available tech. Afte about 10 minutes another automated voice came on saying if I left my phone number I would be called back as the que time was about 30 munites. That was over 5 hours ago and I still have not got a call back. Telephone system sucks.
Tech support I gave an e-mail to tech support and got an incident number on Apr 23/13 I replied on apr 24/13 outlining the problem and even sent images showing the weird cable ends on the dome cameras as compared to the regular ends on the cables of the standard power adapters. I have yet to hear back from them. It;s now been 3 days of phone calls and e-mail trying to get the problem solved. No Luck So Far - I am beginning to think I will have to drive 4 hrs to the factory and show them what the problem is and demand satisfaction.

we bought the 6 camera system. Two are outdoor motion detectors. We also installed the indoor ones under the eaves. They are working just fine. We love the system. It was a bit confusing configuring the DDNS but the helpline is good if hard to get in touch with. For the price, the quality is very good. The monitor works well , very clear. We have still not programmed all we can do into the DVR, still learning. We are very pleased and would not hesitate to recommend this system and would order again.

easy setup


The lorex Edge was easy to set up. Plug everything in and your set. I like how it works on ie safari iphone and blackberry. However it does not work on android phones as of yet. Also their auto port forwarding feature didn't seem to work. They have a proxy service from yoics which the lorex manual directs you to sign up for. While I did sign up for it the yoics wizard never found my lorex and I wasted about 20 min trying to get it to work but no luck. Eventually I decided to do the old fashioned way and port forward on my router. It seems like you only need to open one port and you can get remote viewing / playback on ie safari and mobile phones but I have yet to setup remote viewing on iphone. Good for the price. Easy setup and easy to use, Comes with ir extended and is beds standard two you can mount it to a monitor.

Great motion light camera security DVR 



Old PC-based security system died, so re-connected the same cables into this Lorex Edge - and we were back in business. completed the the whole setup in about 20-mins without needing to read the manual. interface is very intuitive, remote monitoring works great. I had one technical question that I asked over the phone with Lorex support, they actually answered the phone, registered my serial# and gave me a lot of good info. Excellent support!

I would definitely buy again, this is a great inexpensive little device.

Adequate, not great


If you are comfortable stringing wires in the attic or basement you will do fine getting the cameras set up. Have to think carefully about placement. Can't use them in locations that have a mix of high and low light. Make sure they are close enough to the subject to be able to see details. At night this is particularly important. Had to move cameras after I reviewed the output and realized that the quality was low enough that no ID could be made. Over the garage will probably be much too high. ANY motion triggers the email function, including rain or snow. The masking function and sensitivity functions for motion sensing during set up is a joke. For straight continuous recording it works fine. I use Apple products at home and the software really doesn't work well with them. The Mac world was an afterthought for the company. More than anything else, the cameras are visible, the alarm system I had installed is visible so hopefully the bad guys will stay away. Customer service is nonexistent. YOU MUST READ THE MANUAL. If you are going to use the Internet functions you need to be savvy. Having a geek friend to help set it up will be necessary unless you claim that title for yourself.

More features and better image than most...


I have been told by a few salesman that the Lorex Products are overpriced without justification. After studying complete systems for a few weeks, I have learned that Lorex offers a few significant benefits over other brands. One of them is the auto-port forwarding software that comes with their dvr surveilance systems. This proprietary software automatically configures just about any router to enable remote internet viewing of your system. This is complimented by offering their own exclusive DDNS access to Lorex customers at no additional cost. For example, if I choose a username of homesec, my internet website would be homesec.lorexddns.net. From any computer, I am now able to access my system, reliably. I have streamed it simutaneously from two remote locations for over 24 hrs straight and still have a live feed. I am very happy with the high level of thoughfulness that went into the interface. I do not know if this is a feature available anywhere else, but I am able to control every possible feature and function from a remote browser and can set multiple permissions for multiple users.



Aside from the DVR, the cameras are also better than most comperable systems. They include 480 lines of resolution, 122 degree f operating temp, IP66 (very high) weatherproof rating, and a proprietary auto mechanical IR filter cut that helps display the best image at all times. The image is also remarkably flat with a 50 degree field of view. The viewing angle is average, but still better than many. I purchased an additional 4 cameras (sg7530) that have a 73 degree field of view to compliment the system. The cameras also use less power than most at 250 mW with IR on. The LED monitor makes this deal outstanding. It is so light and uses only 9w of power. I have 4 cameras connected along with the DVR, gigabit switch, and monitor to a 900VA Belkin UPS. It only uses 6-7% of load. I ran a 2 hour deep cycle test and the battery only dropped to 62%!!! I can run the system and view the display for a very long time if power were to go out. It would be nice to run this system off of a solar/deep cycle bettery setup to make it completely grid independant for an effectively perpetual security surveilance system.



Anyway, I am not going over all of the features that everyone else has already mentioned. Instead I thoughn it important to diuscuss the ones that sold me after very extensive research and comparison. One other thing I learned about CCTV systems, in general is that cat5 wiring is easier to run and better than coax. It also allows you more options (audio, ptz control, etc) all in a single smaller cable (use solid core 24ga). "Videosecu" offers cat5 breakout dongle sets that convert rj45 to cctv power, video, and audio. The last of the 4 prs can be used to control a PTZ or as an alarm or sensor input. With an understanding of the importance of security and a stubborn never give up mentality, this system can be incorperated to any home and provide commercial quality performance (assuming th HDD is truly 100% duty cycle).



I only gave it 4 stars, because I would like some of the logitech wilife/alert features and options to be incorperated into the software. That being said, at least I do not have to pay a yearly fee like with the Logitech system. Overall, outstanding and well thought out grab and go package. When choosing a system, make sure you seriously consider the number of cameras you may need vs the number of channels on the DVR. IF you are going to put 4, then get an 8 channel. If you are going to put 7 then get a 16. Too late for me, but here is the issue. A 4 channel system provided a max of 120 frames per second, 8channel=240FPS, 16channel= 480 FPS. That effectively means that at the highest resolution and picture quality, you will have only 7.5 FPF if you max out that system's cameras. I dont know about you, but 7.5 fps is very choppy to me. If that does not matter to you, then dont sweat it, but I want the smoothest, biggest, best picture possible on as many cameras as possible. Study it further if this means anything to you. FYI- none of thes systems are "easy" to setup, if you plan to use all of the features, but the instructions are excellently detailed and use proper English. Anyway, if there are any problems,I will update. So far, so good.

Hope this helps!!!

Nice DIY security DVR system,, December 8, 2011



 

This security DVR provided clear markings for hook up. The UI interface is awkward but understandable so navigation for set up doesn't take long. I purchased this DVR because of it's IP capabilities and it delivered. It requires a few hoops to set up on it's supported devices but after that, it just works. I have it working on Apple Mac's, Apple iPads and Android phones. A bonus for me was the free provided remote capabilities. You go through Lorex's DNS service and then, you have the same IP capabilities but outside the home.I would have rated this a 5 except that there was no composite video out (it's actually the one marking on the back that is unclear).

Mine System Works Fine, Happy With It,


 


I purchased the system even though it had a couple of negative reviews. I had the system installed in a property I have in Mexico a couple of months ago. I did have it installed by a professional installer in Mexico just because I ran out of time to do it and wanted to get it operational. I can view pictures on my computer via Internet Explorer (Google chrome is not supported) and my android phone without any problem. At this point I am very satisfied. The pictures are clear and motion caught without being too jerky. I have not had any problems.

Lorex delivers- needed help with configuration!

Excellent product when I got things going finally. Needed a helpful hint or 2 from Brian in teck help and I was good to go. Delivers exactly what was ordered. Need to know a little about proper hookup and a moderate knowledge of computers. Amazon has the product almost 1/2 cost of what Lorex is asking. Doesn't matter where you buy it- They back it. You have 25 days to use it and see if it fits your needs. I had a bad camera-sent me another new one. Has a 500 gig hard drive. I'm thinking of going up to 1 Terebyte!

Camera Quality pretty good for the price



This video surveillance system comes with 4 security cameras which can be mounted both indoors and outdoors. The setup was easy, but a I've run into a few minor issues with the networking solutions.

The system claims to offer an easy setup for putting your camera feeds online to view on your mobile phone or tablet over the internet. So far, I've followed the step by step process and still not able to do so. Of course, I'll continue trying, but it's worth mentioning.

Pros:

- Good quality color picture with zooming capability and even night vision.

- Records your camera feeds in a nice sized DVR.

- Provides the capability to expand your picture onto multiple TV's and online as well.

Cons:

- The actual cords that are provided with each camera are only 60 ft. long, so if you have a fairly large house, you'll have to shell out an additional $40 to $50 to buy some extension cables online to connect everything back to the main DVR hub.

- The online networking capability has been difficult to step, even though I've followed their step by step setup instructions to a T.

That being said, I did some research, and their product is VERY reasonably priced for what they're offering. I'd recommend it.

Easy to set up and get started quickly


We got this system in order to be able to watch places in our home that we can't normally see from the main floor: the chicken coop was probably the biggest motivator. We are sick of losing hens to some night-time predator and not knowing what it was or how it managed to get in. We also set-up one camera in the basement where my kids play and watch TV, and a couple different places outside the house that aren't easily seen from windows.

Initial set-up was a breeze: We got the system running and were able to get the view from the various cameras in under half an hour. The bigger job is getting the cameras installed where you want them. The product comes with a great length of lightweight cable for each camera and the cameras themselves are lightweight, but just the logistics of figuring out where you want to run the cable and secure the cameras will take some time.

Our favorite feature is the night-vision. It kicks in automatically as needed and allows us to record a night of activity at the chicken coop and play it back in the morning if we need to (in other words if we find we're missing chickens in the morning).

One aspect of the ease of set-up that's often overlooked is that the default settings are quite reasonable and we didn't need to change anything to get started. The most important thing once it's running is to set the date and time. Bad marks on the date-setting user interface which is quite awkward. The other settings that we've used so far are much more straight-forward.

This product has many features that we just don't need, so I can't offer an opinion on those.

Full featured security system


This product is a full security system including a monitor, four cameras and a DVR with the capability of handling up to 8 cameras. Also included are cabling for the cameras. While manuals are provided for setup, professional installation may be required. The software itself is not too difficult to use and is highly configurable. The cameras function well and operate in both day and night conditions. The DVR can be configured for remote access from a browser or mobile device and (positive) can be manually configured to avoid conflicts with other devices or servers on the network.

Overall, I liked this system a lot. I didn't have any problems getting it set up and using it. The interface is straightforward and the manuals do a good job of explaining how the many features work.

So far, a good system limited only by the cameras' field of view


6/28/2011 initial impression: I've only done basic setup and configuration so far, more information will follow as I put this through its paces.



First, the manual has no index. I've failed to find several things in the table of contents, so a page-by-page search of the 122 page fine print manual has been necessary. This won't matter once the system is up and running, but an index would be very helpful during configuration.



Pulling it out of the box and connecting it was simple and intuitive. The most frustrating part was attaching the monitor to the base. (The arrow is on the back of the base.) Wires are obvious and ports are clearly labeled. I had the system fully assembled for testing in about 20 minutes.



The four cameras connect through the extension cables to one power supply. I like this because only one outlet is needed near the DVR, but it does mean that all cameras will be out of service if the power supply fails.



I find the image quality to be impressive. So far I've tested the cameras to 30 feet in a very dim room (though I haven't tested them in total darkness yet,) and the sharpness and level of detail was quite acceptable.



Configuration is relatively easy, using both the mouse and the remote. Some things (like text and number entry) are more easily done with the mouse, but the remote is handy for menu navigation. Use both if you have the option.



The screen can be configured to display four channels or nine channels. For four camera systems like this one, it still defaults to the nine camera view with five blank views. Double-click the channel of your choice for full screen.



The system has audio capability, but the cameras do not. If you decide later that you require audio recording you can keep the system and upgrade the cameras.



Video files are stored in a proprietary format. If you'll need to share them or view them on your computer, you'll need a converter. One is included on the disc that comes with this system.



You can record continuously, or only during scheduled times. You can also set each camera to record only if motion is detected, and you can specify motion detection over the whole field (the default) or only in specific areas. (This might be useful if you have a device that moves in the field of view--a fan, for example.)



That's as far as I've gotten so far. I'll update as the installation process continues. I've still got to connect it to the network, set up remote connectivity and the Android app, and (here's the big part of the process) permanently install the cameras and run the wires through the walls. Placement of the cameras will be important, since they are not wide angle cameras and have a limited (50 degrees) field of view.
