Too noisy, you could hear the DVR from 49 feet away. I like their product, easy to use. Great customer service, they refunded my money without any hassles.

I pruchased this product to monitor the deer coming into our small food plot behind the cabin. It runs 24hrs a day. We have 3 monitors hooked up to the DVR to feed the video into the cabin. Great day time & night time video. I am not a tech guy, I had the system set up and ready to go within 2 hrs. As always with technology there was way to many options for what I was looking for. Overall a perfect fit for our hunting club

I bought this surveillance system to replace the analog system that I had for 4 years. At first I was a little hesitated about the cost of this system compare to what I paid for the analog. After researching and reading the reviews I went ahead and purchased the system. So far, I been really impress with this system. Pros: installation and setup straight forward, excellent video quality (during the day and night), a lot of support documents on the website Cons: DVR a little noisy, easy connect wizard software is buggy, can't reuse existing cables unless it is coaxial.

Very easy to install and setup. More than enough wire, in 1 case way too much cameras work fantastic, easy to go back and view events. Tip: add a second sata drive. Monitoring from a remote location or your phone is super simple to set up.

the Lorex unit was easy to configure for remote viewing. It's worth the extra cost for 1080p.

We upgraded to the Lorex EcoHD because we were told that the quality of the picture was much better than our older system. We were immediately impressed with the quality - everything is crystal clear including the night bugs that cross the path of our cameras. What is even more impressive is how quickly it was to load the program onto our computer and there is an App to view the cameras as well on my IPhone which I especially love. I have peace of mind every time I hear something weird outside of our home or our dog starts barking to be able to view all my cameras from my IPhone in the middle of the night instead of getting up out of bed to go to our computer. Absolutely love the Lorex brand and most definitely recommend it!

This is my follow up review on the LHD142 system. I finally received the DVR portion of my order and was able to test and install the system at my house. The install process for the cameras is very straight forward. One thing I did that really helped, was I hooked up one camera and ran several tests for the placement of the cameras. I wanted to get the best locations for the four cameras I have (I ordered 2 extra). This process took a little extra time, but I believe it was well worth it. I climbed a ladder at different spots around the outside of the house and would point the camera for different views. I used my Ipad and the Lorex app to see what the shot looked like before I just started installing cameras just anywhere and then trying to get the right angle after the fact. Once I had the locations and the directions for the cameras, I installed them and got everything hooked up to the DVR. The high def 1080p picture quality is outstanding. I installed my system to use my 60" plasma TV as my monitor. The DVR fits perfectly in the rack with the rest of my home theater equipment. This works well as it's inside an inclosed cabinet, so I don't hear the fan noise that was mentioned in the earlier review. The DVR menus ate easy to navigate and I even did the firmware update that was available from the Lorex website. The set up for the remote viewing on your devices can be a bit tricky, but once you have figured that part out, everything is working very well.
Overall, I'm very please with the system and would recommend it for any home or business.

This is a preliminary review on the shipping process only. I will write a second review once I finally receive the rest of my order. If find it very frustrating that Lorex has chosen to split my order. I ordered the system shown here, HD DVR and 2 HD cameras. I also ordered 2 additional cameras, so My system would have 4. I placed my order via their website on Aug 1st. I received an email telling me that my order had shipped from Indianapolis, IN. and estimated delivery date was yesterday Aug 8th. Ok, 1 week, that's fair. I also received a second email on Aug 6th telling me my order had shipped, this time shipping from Canada. The first box did arrive yesterday, however, when I open the box, what I had received was 4 cameras. It appears that the DVR is what is in the second order. Estimated delivery for the DVR is not until next Wed the 14th. 2 weeks for this order to be delivered. That also means I can't start working on the install because I need the DVR to be hooked up to I can work on camera placement. Lorex, we are not starting out very well. I hope to be able to write a better review once I have all the parts and get the system up and running. Stay tuned...

I've only had these for a few weeks and have not fully completed installation however there are some notable points.
Camera's are excellent, HD, and clear picture with true color. Night vision works well though it's hard to say up to what distance as my cameras are trained on entrances at about 25ft away.
Set up is straightforward though will take some time to complete fully. The app for my Android phone works well.
The only downside for me is the noise of the fan on the DVR - it's as loud as my computer fan at high speed, and it runs continuously so I'll need to get creative on where to locate it.
So, works as described and overall I'm happy and will buy another camera soon.

Unfortunately the jury is still out on this system. We installed it recently and 1 out of the 4 cameras had a bad piggy-tail cable. Fortunately, Lorex customer service was able to issue a RMA so we returned it for a functioning camera. After 2.5 weeks, the new camera arrived but the red LED lights would cycle on and off (when operating in darkness), so we are still debugging that problem. After running the system for a month, another camera (#1) is now flaking out. It seems that at night, the images would get scrambled up where horizontal blocks of images would get shuffled randomly. Lorex Technical Support said they would like to see this problem happening live so they can help debug the system, so we are waiting for it to fail during the day so we can get the problem resolved. Wait time for Tech Support is around 30+ minutes so far. When the system works, the image quality is good. Will see what happens. If the problems get resolved, we will post a follow-up review and adjust the rating accordingly.

"Definitely recommend this product. I like the zoom capability without the pixelation appearance you get from other cameras with a lower pixel count. I enjoy the remote viewing from my I-phone, the app works great. My house has cat5 network so I can view the cameras on all the TVs and computers on my the network with a interactive remote. One push of the remote source button and I can see clear images from the cameras in HD. Nice product."

Great viewing from around the world

We use this product for home security. Hardware set up was uneventful. Port forwarding was quite a challenge. After a couple of calls to customer service, they were able to finish the set up remotely. The main reason for the 4 stars is the very high quality of the picture at night both on the local monitor and when I am viewing remotely. The main reason that it is not 5 stars is that there is limited security accessing one of these DVRs from an apple product. All that is needed is the url and the client port that was setup by the user and or installer. The best way to overcome this is to set up a wide range of client ports. You can then change your assigned one occasionally. Not as good as including a password also which is required when using a windows product, but better than just the default client port. Also, we have had a more stable connection when viewing remotely with a windows based computer.
