A flexbile 4 camera home surveillance system with HD 1080p wired and VGA wireless security cameras

Protect what matters with this dependable home surveillance system from Lorex. For the LW422, flexibility is the name of the game. This exclusive bundle features our cutting edge DV700 digital video recorder (DVR) paired with two VGA wireless security cameras, and two 1080p HD wired security cameras. The combination of wired and wireless security cameras makes this an ideal system for homes with detached buildings or garages.

Lorex SignalGuard Technology stable and reliable wireless security video

Stable wireless security video with SignalGuard technology

SignalGuard technology ensures that the smooth video continues virtually uninterrupted if signal strength ever drops (or the camera loses connection). SignalGuard automatically resets and reconnects the cameras to their receivers, ensuring that you never miss a moment. Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS) technology works to keep competing wireless signals from interfering with your security camera’s video signal.

Home and business security monitoring in 1080p HD resolution

Rely on crisp HD 1080p security footage

The two LBV2711B analog HD security cameras in this bundle produce industry leading 1080p (1920x1080) live viewing and recording. HD quality can be the difference in identifying important details such as faces or license plate numbers. Smooth on-screen movement thanks to the 30 frames-per-second frame rate (in 720p mode) makes sure you never miss a moment. Wide 90° angle lenses from each of the LBV2711B HD bullet security cameras delivers broad video coverage for monitoring large areas.

Extend security coverage up to 800ft for long distance security monitoring

Analog connection for flexible installation

RG59 Siamese BNC cabling provides both video and power for a simple connection between your security cameras and DVR. If needed, analog HD cameras like the LBV2711B HD security camera can be installed up to 800 feet away from the DVR (see documentation for complete details). This makes them perfect for securing large properties.

Purchased a 2 camera wireless system with DVR after nasty neighbor vandalized my car. Package LW482W.
I got a 1T. DVR with 2 wireless cameras .. LW227B. Thank you Lorex for sending me an upgraded DVR!!
My original purchase was for a 1/2 terabytes Hard drive... And only 4 camera max capacity. You sent me a larger capacity DVR capable of running 12 cameras.
Well, I'm 4 months into ownership and have just ordered 4 more cameras!
My wireless cameras were mounted on the front of my house, way up high so no one could easily tamper with them. The mounting hardware and camera housing were the trickiest part of setting up the whole system. I did hire a young man to assist.
Other than this, I had the system up and running within minutes.

I connected the DVR inside my house to my existing modem and old computer monitor/screen. Easy. You do need a router as well if you are going the wireless camera route.

I truly can't say enough good things about this system! I've already caught the thief who stole my neighbor's mail package left by her front door, in broad daylight, directly across the street from my house. (Same thieves who vandalize cars. . Lousy low-income tenants residing in my neighborhood receiving government subsidized rent. You know the caliber...)
My cameras have done more for my peace-of-mind AND for my neighbor's as well.

I have just ordered 4 more wired cameras... And, based on my recommendations my next door neighbor just ordered a 4 camera wireless system.
My cameras are doing more good things for the neighborhood than our Home Owners Associations drive-by security car. ( useless)
Can't say enough good thing about tech support at Lorex. They can remotely access your system via ones computer and set up all the proper parameters if you need help doing so.
I love that I can sit in my house and just glance up at my security monitor to see what's happening outside.
I can see who is ringing my doorbell or who is walking or driving by. Also, I can access all this from my smart phone or my IPad when away.
I was sitting in my doctors office one time, logged into Live View on my cell phone and could hear a huge commotion. Arguing, cursing... Turns out it was the same troublesome renters having a huge domestic dispute in their front yard! The audio on this system is amazing. They are 5 houses away! I "saved" this audio for future prosecution purposes.
I did learn that in my state for any audio or surveillance footage to be admissible in court, one must have a sign/decal posted visibly for others to see. So don't forget to order your Lorex decal when ordering your system.
Demographically I am a senior citizen with basic understanding of technology.
Thank you Lorex... I love not having a recurring additional home security bill. My local cable company wanted over $50 per month with a years contract for just one camera!

This is my first home security package from Lorex with a dvr and 2 wireless cameras. The setup was very straight forward. The hardest part for me is to decide where to place the security cameras. Other than that, the set up was a breeze. The Internet app though is quite marginal for me. But this product is definitely worth it as an entry level unit.

I purchased my first home security package from Lorex, a DVR and two wireless cameras. This was an entry level purchase but I am quite pleased with it.
A customer service rep helped me select it after listening to my needs and wants.
I called customer service two times while installing my system and both times my call was answered quickly and I was helped efficiently.
I am pleased with Lorex and its products and will look to Lorex first when I decide to do any add-ons or upgrades.

I purchased this system based on a personal recommendation and also influenced by the high review ratings.

This product performs better than expected and the setup was extremely easy.

The quality was also better than I expected and there were no issues during or after the installation.

The customer service was friendly and very patient to answer the questions I had and walked me through the complete system, which saved me over an hour of reading, Thank you customer service!

This was a system for my elderly neighbor who needed it for peace of mind and security.

The Lorex company may sell the worst product I've ever purchased and then they back it up by incompetent customer service who barely speak English.

It took ten (10) days to receive the first system when it was promised in 3 to 5 days - Strike #1.

We installed the system and immediately the unit wouldn't record or playback the video. Customer service had me take the unit apart (Who has a customer take apart an electronic item to trouble shoot it? LOREX!!!!) tried a couple of things and it didn't fix it. They determined it was a bad hard drive. I had to fax and email an RMA (Returned Merchandise Authorization) which it took them eight (8) days to respond to and then had no idea when they would ship the new one. It took twelve (12) phone calls to finally get an ETA of the new unit which then arrived four (4) weeks later. That was a total forty-one (41) days when it was a defective product. Strike #2!!!! Once the new unit arrived. The ticket number 1235448 was assigned to this incident.

We installed the second system that took forever to get and none knows anything when you call in. It's always the same BS that is was turned over to the warranty department. And neither the customer service rep nor you can contact them!!! So, we installed the new unit immediately the exact same thing happened that the unit wouldn't record or playback the video. Customer service again had me take the unit apart (And I ask again - who has a customer take apart an electronic item to trouble shoot it? The same answer is - LOREX!!!!) tried a couple of things and it didn't fix it. And they again determined it was a bad hard drive. How in the hell can we get two (2) POS back to back. They both had the same manufactures date of June/2015 but it took forty-one (41) days to get a replacement. That tells me the POS was sitting in their warehouse. To confirm what I'm saying this was assigned ticket number 1330414. Strike #3 !!!!

Whomever is giving these glowing reviews of this product must be fabricating the truth!!!

I will do everything I can to expose this inept company for their sub-par products in order to save themselves some frustration.

Just this week I blocked a sale of one of the Lorex products to a sales rep that calls on me here at my business. He knew I was getting a security surveillance system for my neighbor and he inquired how that went. I told him the entire story just like I did above. Much to my joy he went to a local electronics store and purchased another brand and as of yesterday it was up and working perfectly.

I will do everything to cost Lorex as many as sales as I possibly can because their poor quality products, poor customer service and lack of prompt response deserves to be exposed!!!!!

We will see if they leave this post up.

We regret that the system has caused you trouble, and we anticipate receiving the equipment back at your convenience in order to process your refund. Thank you.

System was fairly easy to set up. I had no issues with following the instructions. The iphone app isn't that great and really needs some work but it works ok to some extent. It took a few days to figure out the bells and whistles of the DVR but not too complicated. The cameras provide excellent view and coverage, although I had to move my router/DVR closer to the cameras to get a decent signal even in my small house. The DDNS doesn't work at all, which appears to be a common problem based on other reviews. Good value for the money.

Thank you for your feedback. Our technical support team was happy to assist you with the DDNS set-up. Should you require further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us at 1-877-755-6739.

I removed the application from my cell phone and reinstalled. The system on my computer is just great, however the cell phone is a necessity for me. Wish it was more reliable.

We ordered this set to augment our other cameras at our storage facility. We needed it for our boat & RV pad which is over 500 ft. from our office. With the extending antennas it works fantastic. The price was very reasonable & customer service was helpful with the peace of mind that the whole thing could be returned if it did not work out for us But we're totally happy with it, so no need for that.

My unit was not shipped when it should have, I called and it was still in the warehouse. I think they were out of DVR for the package. They upgraded my DVR (thanks). Had some problems getting it up and running. But the problem was on my end did not change the input on my TV to HDMI (that was smart No:1) I only did the basic to start with so I could get this running before I go in to hospital for a heart procedure. Well smart no:2, was when I grabbed my router and hit a button or so. Dumb no:1 was should screwed with it at 73 years old. Well all and all it works just fine, great pictures and i'm catching what ares that I want to. After I get home I will finish the rest.

After I installed this product, time to time, I am not able to connect to the internet. I wonder if I need to do some extra steps/settings to avoid this problem. I am curious why there is no other people complaining about this problem. Help needed!

This is a nice system. 2 wireless cameras and DVR plenty of hard disk space. The camera resolution is VGA, which is quite decent. The setup instructions were clear. I was able to set it up relatively quickly. The web access works great. The viewer app can be improved a bit. For example, it would be nice to be able to save my custom view and it would be nice if the app just goes to the live view by default etc.
Overall a good buy

The product was easy to setup. The cameras connected right away. I had my 2 wireless cams outside with the DVR in the basement and connection was pretty good. I decided to move DVR upstairs for a better signal. The motion detection is super sensitive, had to turn down the sensitive scale down quite a bit. Very simple interface. I had a question, time for support to get back to me was about a day and half, which is fine. It seems that I have to use the recommend client on my PC instead of IE for some reason which is fine for me. I have the app also running on my phone and that works pretty good. Night vision isn't bad but you can buy their better cams if you want much better night vision

I ordered it online and received it within a week. There was 1 part missing from my camera. I am waiting for Lorex to send me the missing part. Contacted the tech support to set up port forwarding. Everything looks good so far.

I bought a system like this one a year ago to protect our RV camp and has worked great. So I purchased this second system four weeks ago and installed it two weeks ago. Very easy to install and set up. This two camera system is up graded to handle sixteen cameras. We have two other friends that are now going to order this system. Very great item and great quality, with a good service back up if you need help.

Very impressive system, well worth the money, the iphone app is pretty good, you have to double tap on the channel picture once a day to reset, other than that theres no problem. I ran fifty foot power cords that I made from power wire and ends from the hardware store, a little time consuming but the alternative was to use extension cords, making small diameter cords yourself is the way to go, it eliminates excess cord and you can go with a very small diameter wire making concealment easier. The night vision is excellent, after looking at the monitor you forget it's completely dark outside till you walk out the door, it's amazing how well the cameras see in the dark. The Lorex system is not the cheapest out there but, you get what you pay for, this is absolutely a quality system...

I have been a customer of Lorex for around three years. I have a four camera wireless system. I and now upgrading to an eight camera system with two separate systems in different parts of my house. The systems are easy to set up to my computers in the house, and to my tablets and cell phones when I am on the road. I have the LH114 DVR with the LW2281 camera's, and adding the LH161 DVR and the LW2278 camera's. Good systems, good price, good quality, just wish the phone support for customer service and tech support was better.

I purchased the LW482W model with 4 cameras and added two cameras since the initial purchase. The quality of the picture is pretty good. The night vision is better than other cameras I've used. I have had an issue with one of the cameras not switching back and forth between night and day vision, but other than that no issues. The app is a little balky, but I found that clicking on the device link and refreshing brings up the cameras. I do have to reboot the DVR periodically to get access from my phone. The video isn't as clear as I hoped it would be - writing on trucks going by the house can't be read, but overall pretty good. I like being able to check on the house when I'm out or at work. Would recommend the product.

I purchased this system for a 2nd home for security when I wasn'there. I have installed the two cameras, one at the front door and one at the rear door.The back door was not sheltered so I used Lorex's suggestion of a plastic bucket to creat a sheltered cover for the camera. Installation was fairly easy, but to get the views on my Ipad and TV, I did get help from Lorex tech support. The were very helpful and easy to work with. The next step is to get the DVR to record when motion is detected and then to be able to review activity on my computer and Ipad. Good product at a reasonble price.

I am very happy with the purchase of my lorex surveillance system. I had no problem setting up the wireless camera system. I did need customer service to help with configuring my program parameters. Customer service was extremely helpful and friendly. If you want a basic surveillance system that shows you who is coming and going from your premises, this is an extremely economical and functional option. I will and have recommended the system to friends and family.

We have this system at home because someone had broken into our home and vandalized our cars too. I want to be able to catch the next person If and when they come around again. (Which I hope never) Good system, however the camera quality isn't so great . You can not really make out whos who if you tried unless you know who the person is on the video. All you really see is a blur of a image of a person. However, later i saw Lorex has the LW2231 Wireless Camera that has a much better quality and Real-Time video. I would recommend to buy a DVR alone and the cameras (LW2231) separately. I am going to purchase another LW2231 camera to replace the ones I got and put those in the most crucial places in my home and the others in other place around the home.

Week of 2-16-15 through 2-23-15 DFW, TX area. It has held up to my expectations thus far. It is a easy quick set up as well. The only thing I can say about this product that could use an improvement is that it would be easier to have one antenna for the back of the receiver instead of each individual cam. I can only allow 4 stars because it has only been a week, but there are two of my neighbors I have already recommend this product to. Both have placed orders.

System working fine now however it has been months since my initial purchase. Tech people were always polite and willing to spend time trying to address the issue. I have had to return two units, after a month or two they began turning off and then rebooted every 5 minutes. We also had issues connecting from an outside computer. It took many hours with their techs to figure out that the Ports being closed were the issue. I have just finished setting up the replacement unit after getting the ports opened and all appears to be working fine at this time . . . hopefully the replacement unit will not have the issue of turning off and on like the previous two units . . . Time will tell but you better save your purchase receipt. Picture is good and there are a lot of bells and whistles.

Still working on the camera settings to get the best overall coverage/video. The motion sensors will pick up rain drops so I'm reducing camera sensitivity. Video is decent for the price. I'll get the remote connectivity/smart phone operational in a couple of days. Overall nice system for the cost.

This is an excellent system for the price I paid. I got it on sale for 349.99, plus an extra 10% off and free shipping. Shipping was pretty fast, I ordered it on a Monday and received it that Friday. It was well packaged. I received an upgraded DVR that has a 1 TB hard drive instead of the 500 GB that was listed on the website. The system was easy to initially setup with the included quick setup guide. It doesn’t come with a printed user manual, you need to download it from the Lorex website. You will need this manual when you get into the more detail setup of this system. The manual explains things pretty good so the detail setup was not bad at all. The feature to copy settings from one camera to the rest of the cameras is very nice. The image quality of the cameras is very good. The night vision is excellent. The range of these wireless cameras is great. I have one camera about 20 feet away that goes through one interior wall and one exterior stucco wall with the reception always at 3 to 4 bars. The second camera is about 50 feet away but goes through one interior wall, 2 exterior stucco walls and an insulated steel garage door with the reception at 2 to 4 bars. It has never loss reception and usually stays at 3 bars. I am very happy with this because with my previous system from a different company the camera in the same location would be 1 to 2 bars and would totally lose reception over 50% of the time. I think the cameras probably have the stated 165 feet of unobstructed range. Connecting to the internet was very easy. I connected the included LAN cable to the DVR and my router, and it automatically connected to the internet. I downloaded and installed the free APP for the IPhone and after logging in with my password, I was able to view the cameras remotely with no additional setting up. I do have one very minor issue. The cameras use a very very small Allen head set screw that you need to loosen and tighten when you adjust the position of the cameras. This made it a little more difficult and time consuming to adjust the positioning of the cameras. On my previous system and on some other Lorex cameras they have wing nuts which makes it a lot easier. I consider this a minor issue because I hope that once the cameras are positioned, I will not have to re-adjust them. I am very happy with this system for the price I paid. Even with this minor issue, I give this system 5 stars!!

My dad asked me to find him a wireless security system & this one seemed great for him. We wanted something that could hook up to his television instead of a little screen. We installed them and immediately liked the picture & sound quality! The only issue we had was that there is not a manual to the DVR. Lorex said it's available online but dad doesn't have computer or internet. They did tell me that they would request one be sent to him, hopefully he does get one. Highly recommend this system.

So far I have been quite impressed with my unit. It was packaged well when received. I did a lot of research before buying the two camera system. After receiving everything I set the complete system up and connected it to a monitor to verify all the components worked properly. This also helped in becoming familiar with the ECO3 DVR’s software. After verifying the system I then connected it to my router and downloaded the Lorex Stratus program to my PC. I also downloaded the application for my tablet which helped when locating the cameras. This can save you some time if you have to move a camera. The color and images are very clear in daylight. I have a camera monitoring the front of our house and at night we keep our porch lights on which helps with the night vision. We connected a high gain directional antenna to the receiver for this camera because of the distance and walls the signal has to go through. Works great. Have not placed the second camera yet. I would recommend this system to anyone looking for a two camera system that is expandable.

This is one of the best deals I have seen in a long time. It has surpassed my expectation. The cameras are very good. Good picture in daylight or night. sound is also great, I can hear the traffic on the highway 200ft away. Did get an upgrade on the DVR, instead of 8 channel, I received a 12 channel with a lot more recording space. This outfit is very easy to set up. The set up is done thru the Dvr. You can adjust about everything. Works great right out of the box.I have mine set to record due to motion. Connects to my TV or monitor. The wireless cameras save a lot of installation time and frustration. I will be buying another camera for my setup. I would buy this product again without any reservations. totally satisfied.

I purchased this system during the cyber Monday sale. What an amazing deal! The system has surpassed my expectations. It was easy to set up and install. It was shipped on time to my door step. The picture quality is exceptional. I was able to connect and view the cameras on my iphone within 5 minutes. Very easy to do and works great. I only had one issue, one of the cameras was not able to connect from the location I wanted to install it. It was farther from the receiver and the signal had to travel through the brick wall of my home (no clear line of sight through a window for example). I managed to find a location closer to the receiver to mount the camera. However, you can get the wireless range extender if you have this issue.

I am very pleased with this unit, actually thrilled, it is exactly what I wanted. It gets a 5 star rating as it is, with quality, ease of installation, picture and sound. I would give it a 10 star rating if there was a wide angle option on cameras. I do have an issue with one of my camera's picture blacks off and on,because of where it is mounted under a metal frame of an awning, but it works perfectly at night for some reason, so I will live with the day vision going in and out. I am not very savvy with technical things, so I still have a lot to learn about the other features offered, but so far I am really happy with this unit.

Got this system a week ago and it seems to work well. I guess they where out of the 500 mb DVR that I ordered and they filled the order with a 1 tb unit instead. Its a lot nicer unit than the one I ordered. Still have some learning to do but what I have done was easy. The motion detection feature is cool and you can mask out the stuff you don't want. Wireless is nice to as you don't need video cables running all over the place, just an AC hookup. I don't give anyone a five star rating but with the DVR upgrade I guess you probably deserve it. Only have one camera hooked up right now but everything seems cool. THANKS

Setting up my iPhone and android device was very simple. Interface is straight forward but little 1 page how to on the motion feature would simplify things even more.

Easy to setup if you follow the enclosed "DVR Setup Guide". Convenience of EcoStratus connectivity from mobile devices is a real plus and simple to setup as was the Stratus Client1 software for the Windows 7 Pro laptop. No need to create DDNS connection, but can be done if user wants that type connection. Online DVR manual was easy to find & download and answered all my questions about configuring the system. Cameras are VGA quality as advertised.For a "Homeowner Lite" application, this was perfect. With discounts and free shipping the system cost $314.00 to my door step. May add additional cameras later, which this system makes easy to accomplish. Lorex seems to have thought of everything to make installation, configuration and use of their systems foolproof for an average non-tech senior citizen.

Good product. I wish the quality of the VGA image was a bit clearer. Also, the cameras switch to black and white at a relatively bright light level, which surprised me. Setting up an e-mail notification when motion is detected requires a gmail account, which is not documented in the manual. I think you may also need to have a Mac or PC (I do) to get the e-mail notification to work. Fortunately, the help desk for Lorex was very good.

I now have 2 years of experience using a Lorex system to monitor a remote location both outdoors and indoors. I started with only wireless cameras due to their ease of installation but quickly went to high resolution, wired cameras. The reason for this is the much better picture quality of the 700TVL camera. Even with that higher quality picture and with 2 cameras mounted at distances of 60-80 feet the best way I can describe the ability to resolve an individual is "if you know who the person is, you could probably tell who it is". The ability to resolve license plates for example is just not there. Still, the wired cameras do a reasonable job for the price even though it's a bit of work to run the required cables. My recommendation is to spend the extra $$ and get the high resolution cameras.

Another reason for this last recommendation involves reliability. We have had no problem with the 960H cameras, but we have had 2 failures on the wirless cameras (both beyond the warranty period). These systems have been operating over a wide temperature range of maybe +90F to -30F .

There is a substantial learning period involved with the application of these cameras particularly in remote, outdoor, monitoring. These cameras have been mounted in "birdhouses" for protection. Strange things happen such as spiders building webs and when this happens in fromt of the lens, the night vision almost entriely disappears due to reflection of the IR beam off the web and.or spider. This is not a reflection good or bad on the Lorex system but just a statement of reality in the field.

If I have one overall complaint it would be about the manual and , in particular, the problems associated with port forwarding. I work with computers daily and am reasonably competent at setting them up. However, it probably took me 3-4 months to actually get my system working. This was compounded by the problems of trying to contact Lorex support and then overcoming the frequent "language barriers".

Overall, the Lorex system is not bad but for ,amy there may be a long learning process.

I brought another Brand system from Costco a year ago. It was a nightmare. So I have been looking at reviews on different equipment for awhile. About a month ago I found the Lorex web page and the reviews seemed too good to be true. So I took a leap of faith and ordered a system.
WOW. It was everything I read. Set up was almost too simple and the cloud control is outstanding. Soon I will add two more cameras and I tell everyone how great this system came up and runs.

The hardest part was getting hydro to my outdoor location. The connection wireless was very easy. The connection to Stratus for on line servailance was easy as one two three. Now the programming for recording and email, I hope is just as easy. Great system.

Purchased this system the first of this month. Easy to install. Had to have a little help from tech. department for set-up. They were very helpful and courteous. Cameras work great even with little or no light. They go to black and white in low or no light but picture is still good. Like motion sensor and remote capability as well. Look to have a long life out of this product. Thanks to Lorex for the security they give and would highly recommend you give this model a try.

I already submitted a review for the LW482 system, however - I neglected to mention that the DVR that I received was actually an upgraded model from what is shown in the product overview. So I am very pleased. Additionally, whenever I have had an issue that required me to open a ticket I have always received excellent customer service - something I know you will not receive from one of those auction website sellers. All in all I have been very pleased with Lorex and their products.

I presently have 2 other Lorex wireless systems, and with their ease of use and quality decided to purchase this system. My other systems are 4 channel and I wanted to upgrade to an 8 channel system. Purchasing this at a sale price, plus receiving an additional Lorex discount sealed the deal. Easy to install, no port forwarding issues, or really any IT knowledge required as the Stratus connection takes care of that. Easily connected to my android phone with the Lorex ECO app and can now remotely watch all my systems easily. I have had no issues with wireless connectivity. The furthest distance between the farthest camera and receiver is approximately 160 feet, and that signal travels through 2 exterior walls and 2 interior walls. I have not experienced any issues using 6 wireless cameras, although 4 is the recommended maximum.

Nice product.
I ordered this camera system online and got it within 4 days. It was easy to setup, although I did have trouble getting it to email me motion alarms. After calling tech support it was determined that the issue was with my email provider. I switched to a different account and everything is working fine. Tech support was great.

This was the first security camera system I've ever purchased or set up. I was doing so for my company, so I found this particular system through searching the internet for good ratings vs value/price.

The setup was relatively painless, and I often didn't have to look at the single page set up manual included to figure out the next step. I did think I was ordering a completely "wireless" system, but when I got the cameras, I was somewhat surprised to see a power cable needed to be attached.
I called customer support to ask about this, but the representatives response was primarily to scoff at completely wireless (battery) cameras and reiterate how they're horrible (which didn't really address *my* concerns). I wasn't really impressed here, so I dropped a star.

Regardless, we drilled through our cement wall here in order to install these cameras--and so far they've been going strong a week after installation. The quality is okay. I was hoping we'd be able to grab license plate numbers, but they should still work for our purpose.

Good system, easy installation, good tech support. I had to replace one of the cameras (DOA). I contacted Tech support and after brief troubleshooting they determined that the lamera was not functioning properly. I had to complete some basic information on purchase and send a copy of purchase information. With in about 10 days I received the replacement camera and all in working properly. I set the system up for remote viewing on my smartphone... nice system I am able to check my cameras from most anywhere.

After much research I decided on the Lorex Wireless System mainly because of the reviews and price. It was better than expected! The ease of setup was the biggest surprise. I contacted customer support with a few simple questins that I could have found online. There were some reported issues with customer support on a few reviews. I did not find an issue at all, they were knowledgeable and pleasant.

The daylight picture quality is very good and the night vision is better than expected too. If someone is looking for a good wireless system for home security I highly recommend Lorex. Time will tell if it holds up.

The system is easy to install, suitable for those without IT knowledge. The resolution is OK (640x480), with which it is hard to see details of objects, such as labels, text, etc. IR shots are good.

The bad thing is it interferes with your home WIFI network seriously and consistently. If you watch HD videos or play video games at home with WIFI, be aware the system will have an significant impact on your network. You cannot control and change the frequencies of the camera transmitters and receivers, neither you can change your home wifi channel to avoid the cameras frequency bands. SO consider wired camera system or IP cameras if you have home wifi network.

The security system does a good job and the wireless camera is a nice feature. I have one about 200 feet away and it connects great. The downside to this system is the actual menu on the dvr. I am no novice when it comes to electronics, but navigating the menus can be very labor intensive. They are not intuitive and look like they were designed by a teen in the 1990's. Also, it is weird that the firmware will not update from the internet. It keeps asking for a usb key. If the dvr is connected to my internet router then there should be a push update to update the firmware. The web viewing is nice. Takes a few times to connect, but I'm connecting via 4G on my cell, so my carrier may be part of the problem as well. All in all though it is a great feature. I would, and already have recommended this system to family members. It's nice to pay so little for peace of mind. I have only had it installed a few days, so I will update if I run into any problems. I don't foresee any at this point though.

I bought a DVR ECO BlackBox2 LH020 Series with 2 wireless security cameras LW2277 on June 19, 2014 by internet.

The delivery was in three days the same week.

Even if my English is far from a high level, I will try to describe my experience.

The scope was to survey the outdoor of my house.

Read carefully the instructions and the manual; for example if you don't see the arrow of the mouse, you have to press three times 0 (zero); this advice is only in the manual.

The most difficult part is to install the camera on the right place, especially for outdoor use !!.

I began by placing the 2 cameras (outlets, cables, etc); after that I made all the connections for the cameras outside and all the connections for the DVR and receivers inside.

Be very careful to protect the outlets and the Power Adapters; do not let the rain affect them.
I had already a display. I started all the equipment.

I adjust the receivers of the 2 cameras, so the signal became very good;

Do not forget to change the default password !!!

Everything worked fine.

But now, you must protect the cameras; so :
- I made a wood shield for each cameras to protect them: rain , vandalism (if possible), direct sunlight ; the only part that is not protected is the front of the cameras; do not forget, the temperature must be between -10 Celsius (14 F) and + 50 Celsius (122 F); that's why, at the end of the autumn I will put both cameras inside, because we have -31 Celsius during the winter.
- I made tests during the day to verify if the view is what I want.
- I checked different hours during the night: 21:00, 22:00, 24:00, 02:00, 05:00. (Don't worry, I slept very well, I use the playback to check all this !)
- If the cameras is ''looking'' by a hole you need a largest hole in front of the cameras; If the hole is not large enough, you will see very well during the day but during the night you will see nothing, just a gray hallo because the infra red needs a largest angle.

It is a big difference between the day (color) and the night (gray).

I had an incident when I thought that everything is fine: one of the cameras (the most important for me), stopped connecting at 16:32; she worked fine all the week; I observed that, the next day. I play backed until I found the hour, but I did not found en explanation; what I did ? I unplugged the cable and plugged again; she start to work very well. It's happened sometimes with wireless connection.

This could be very embarrassing when you really need to see what's happened at home when you are in Europe for example !!!

I put a UV lamp between the camera and the ''target'', during the night; nothing bad happened; the camera don't seemed blinded by the UV lamp, or even by a white dell solar lamp.

During the day, at 15 m between the camera and a person, you cannot distinguish very well the person (his face for example) .

To check easier, I downloaded the application for iPhone and iPad; the iPad helped me a lot; I can see what's happening at home by iPhone or iPad when I am not in the town.

I tried a lot of options that the BlackBox2 offer (for example private zone, etc).

Conclusion:
- the price is fair:
- The equipment work very well.
- I am satisfied !!

I have only one complaint with the system itself. According to the specs., Lorex claims this systems has a 140 ft. night vision capability. I'd say 20 feet at best, and even that is difficult to see anything.

Second. Not really a complaint, but a wish. Documentations talks of being able to use a keyboard with the system, yet I cannot get one to work and when connecting a kybd, the mouse goes dead. waaa.

Daylight capabilities are excellent.

Ease of use: Excellent

Access via web or mobile: Excellent

Although I thought I was getting a brand new system, I think I was sent an open box one. The LW482 system I purchased is an 8-channel DVR, but the box my DVR came in indicated it was the 4-channel version. The box itself, had been all taped up with heavy packing tape, imprinted with "Factory Inspected" and was difficult to get open. There was an 8-channel DVR inside, but I was a really miffed that I may have ended up with a factory reconditioned unit rather than a brand new one like I thought I was getting.

The system is very easy to set-up and the Stratus cloud connection worked right off with no problems connecting remotely. I had everything set up on my TV, Laptop, Android phone, and iPad within no time, without having to make any adjustments to my home network. Everything connected without any issues.

I was really expecting the cameras to offer better resolution than they do. The picture I'm getting, both on my HDTV and remotely, is fuzzy and not very clear, nowhere near the High Definition examples on Lorex's website. The picture is either washed out if it's too bright or dark if there isn't enough light. When the light levels get low, the cameras switch to night vision, which I only thought they were supposed to do in complete darkness.

I got the Lorex system to supplement my Logitech Alert Security system, as I have the maximum number of cameras allowed for the Logitech system. The picture quality of of the large, somewhat obtrusive Lorex camera is nowhere near the crisp and clear view the miniature Logitech cameras offer. The inability to zoom or auto-focus make the Lorex cameras only rate average in my opinion, which is disappointing as I expected the Lorex camera's to be as good or better than Logitechs, given the price points of each are comparable.

The DVR offers an easy interface, with fast access to settings and preferences, locally or remotely. Be aware however that of the 8-channels, only 2 of the cameras can be hooked into the 2 audio ports this DVR offers. There are no audio inputs available for the other 6 cameras one might add to complete the 8-channel option. The DVR is only able to connect to 4 cameras wirelessly, with the other 4 hard-wired. I would have rather had the 4-channel DVR instead of the 8-channel this system is built off of. I wish that had been an option.

Comparing the Logitech to the Lorex, I'm underwhelmed by the LW482, and give it an average rating of 3-stars compared to the Logitech system which I rate at 5. I would have been throughly disappointed had I paid the Lorex's MSRP of $799, but given my cost was 60% of that, I can't complain. I just hope this system gives me the trouble free operation that my Logitech system has over the years.

This system was easy to install and to get up and running. Since I'm in a rental I went wireless to make installation easier. I was able to locate the DVR in the location of my choice by using powerline adapters. I didn't see a difference in quality with it on the powerline or connected directly to the router. The powerline didn't even affect getting tapped in with the Stratus Application for Apple. I would have preferred the NVR with POE, but that will come later after I'm out of the rental.

I didn't expect a $1000.00 system for $350.00. The software is functional but there is a learning curve as there are many useful functions. Am able to access cameras from my tablet (Nexus7) as well as my PC, with the client software. I have added a couple wired cameras from other sources that the system incorporated quite well. Have yet to use a PTZ and time will tell how well the wireless cameras hold up in the cold Wisconsin climate. I would however have liked the ability to adjust camera focus. That's the reason for the 4 star rating. Overall I would definitely recommend this system for the money, and I am known to be critical.

I am quite happy with this security system. The wireless cameras are great as I can easily mount them with no need to drill holes in walls for cabling. I had no issue with Wifi disruptions and the cameras are around 20 ft from the receivers, still receiving full bars.

The picture quality is just OK. The cameras are 720 x 480 max resolution, which by today's standards aren't spectacular.

The night time IR is amazing. The IR bulbs absolutely can light up 100ft from the camera without issue.

The configuration and interface of the recorder is pretty bad unless you are ok with the default settings. Clunky and not intuitive. I'm in the IT industry and while I was able to figure everything out, but it takes a very long time to set up each camera. The remote doesn't seem to serve much of a purpose as everything can be accessed by the mouse. I found the interface using the client on a PC was far easier and quicker to use than directly on the recorder.

The ability to check on my cameras and receive e-mails on my phone are awesome. Especially when setting up the placement of the cameras. Rather than running in and out of the house, I could see it all on my phone while mounting the cameras.

One thing to note, while it's listed as full 30 frames per second, I was unable to actually get it to record 30 fps (in either 960H mode or D1 mode). It was doing around 25 fps which was still very acceptable.

For the price while on sale, you really can't go wrong with this system.

I tried the wireless Uniden 2 camera and a monitor system I picked up at Costco for $269 first but the quality of the viewing was not so good though it was easy to setup and was supposed to be easy to connect to the Internet without a dedicated PC. I then tried the wireless Lorex 2 camera and a monitor package I picked up at Tiger Direct and the quality of the cameras was great compared to the Uniden but the Tiger Direct salesman erroneously assured me it could be connected to the Internet without a PC like the Uniden. Not true. A Time Warner promotion said they now offer an outdoor wireless camera system but when the tech showed up to install it the cameras they were dinky indoor cameras with no night vision and he could not mount them more than 10 feet of the ground. Next I contacted Lorex support and they recommended the LW482 package that had great outdoor wireless cameras and the DVR could be connected to the Internet without a PC. It works great and can be expanded. It was easy to install but not so easy to connect to the Internet. Mot to worry I called Lorex support and a super smart tech asked for permission to remote access my PC. In no time at all he had the system connected to the Internet with all the account names and passwords I needed to allow me to access the system and view the cameras anywhere. The PC was only needed for initial setup at the site of the system. Now I check from home and could view the cameras with a smart phone except that mine is the new Blackberry that is not supported yet. Android is good to go.

Excellent price point. Easy to setup and install. Technical help needed for online viewing - tech was very helpful. Had higher expectations on the picture quality, but after talking to the tech learned what is required for a higher quality pic - this is system is good for monitoring, but if you want surveillance - facial recognition and being able to read a licence plate, you will need a higher resolution camera/system.

I purchased this product in advance of my vacation.
I farm and work in IT when I am gone the farm needs to be watched. I live in Colorado farming is changing here.
I have been getting this set up and found that I had one defective wireless camera out of the box.
Called tech support for trouble shooting they agreed that this camera was dead now I am working with customer support to get this replaced.
The biggest complaint is the wait time on the phone. Once I was able to get thru. the process was easy and painless.
The video quality is good with the camera that is working.The blackbox2 that came with this set up is a little slow to boot up.The refresh rate lags real time by about 5 seconds so this make viewing a little sketchy, however as I am only using this for security issues and not to make a movie the product performs as expected.
I would recommend this product to anyone that needs the remote capability that the wireless cameras offer.
I am using a 12v deep cycle battery hooked up to a 35 W solar panel ( http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B006RDZHES/ref=pe_344980_118252440_em_1p_9_ti ) to run the remote cameras and this works great all the way thru the night without any glitches. This allows the wireless camera to be truly isolated from the power grid.
The solar and battery are larger than the camera requires however I run string LED lighting around the chicken coop to keep out skunks as well as a heat lamp with the battery and solar power.
If you had any doubts about this system or company put them aside as the company and the products I purchased are all some of the best for the money spent.

after about 45 minutes to install 3 wireless cameras... (drilling holes and mounting) it took me a total of 15 minutes to plug in everything and get it up and running.... this product was soooo easy to setup and work... the connection and getting setup with the iOS apps was a snap.... scan the QR code on the dvd and your done!

installation and set up was easy and i'm glad that the factory paired the cameras to the DVR prior to shipping. I use the system to provide security to my pool, so the cameras are outside and the monitoring system is in the bedroom. Even going thru walls, the system keeps a good signal. I am going to give it a little time to see how this works but I may end up buying 2 more cameras to make it a 4 camera system. One complaint is that the viewing options don't have a 2 camera option, the minimum multi-camera view is 4, so half the viewing area i can't use.

Purchased the LW482, delivery was quick as promised. This was my first system and was kind of hesitant. Installation of cameras and DVR was easy, everything needed is supplied. Had some trouble with the port forwarding for remote access, called support and Sean had it up and running in a few minutes. Probably the best customer support I have ever talked with. Cameras are very clear, color is great and the I.R. night vision is amazing. Would recommend Lorex to anyone looking for a home security system.

The DVR and Camera installation was very simple with the use of the pictorial instructions supplied with the equipment. During the setup with my computer access, I encountered some issue's. I contacted the Lorex support personnel, who were able to determine the issues were with my computer and not the Lorex equipment. They corrected the issues and the setup was completed in no time at all. The ease of viewing the live feed over my iPhone is great. The system is working as well as advertised and better. In my installation of the wireless cameras, I have a aluminum sided two story building between the camera and DVR and the video signal still makes it over the standard antennas.

I'm recommending Lorex to my friends, thats how satisfied I am.

So far this is an amazing system, I called to ask a simple question and the customer service said well lets set it up right now, maybe 10 minutes top and I had everything wired and ready to go. Now that is service. Thank you Vivek for helping out.

Wireless cameras are the way to go, plug and go!

Highly recommend this system, the cameras work absolutely awesome at night time, which we got it for in the first place.

Lorex you should come out with a deal if a consumer wants to add another 1 or 2 cameras. Cause I would snap up one more

I went through many weeks of different specifications of companies & equipment & decided on Lorex. I have not been disappointed. I ordered with 2 additional cameras. I am using this DVR with 4 other wireless cameras that I already had. So far, all 8 wireless cameras & the DVR are working well.
Set up was a breeze, all cameras are working as I wanted & I can watch them with My Iphone anywhere. Didn't need customer service, so I can't comment on them.
Picture quality is good, even in nite vision.

The system is great and very easy to set up. I've set up a number of different types of electronics but never a security system. I had it up and running in 15 to 20 minutes with the cameras just setting on my floor. It naturally took awhile to install the cameras under my homes overhangs but that is dependent on what you are trying to do. I would recommend the system to anyone looking at security cameras. I think the price was fair for two wireless cameras and the DVR. I have one and maybe two more areas I would like to see so I'm looking at adding more cameras. The range of the wireless cameras is very good, I've almost always have the full amount of bars showing. The only disappointment I have is when I purchased the system the web site had white cameras in the add but they came black. As most homes have white under the overhang they would blend better. Seeing how appearance is not a part of rating the product I still give the system five stars.

I recently purchased this system. I am pleased with the system even though it requires the acquisition of a monitor. But at this reduced price, it is a great deal. I wanted a wireless system so there would not be a lot of installation work. However, each camera requires an external power source when located outdoors. I did find that the wireless system is greatly affected by structural obstacles such as concrete walls. The location of the DVR is more critical due to this. But after a little trial and error, I found a location that affords me great reception from each camera location. I would recommend this system to my friends.

I found this product very easy to set up and very glad that I got the wireless system. The reception range is very adequate for our property and I love the easy access to monitoring our home from afar via the internet. This will give us the peace of mind while we are away in the winter. The only criticism that I have, and this is a very minor point, is that the resolution of the system is not quite as good as I was expecting, but again, a minor point.

This product was easy to install (my hubby did it). The price was in our spending range which helped immensely with the great sale that was offered by Lorex. When watching live the screen is very clear especially during the daylight hours. Even in the evening these cameras have night vision. When the floodlights are turned on the picture is pretty decent. We feel pretty good about having a couple cameras around our house. We are looking forward to purchasing more to install inside as well.

I bought this system to use as a barn camera, and was not optimistic it would work. My barn is about 450 feet from the house. I set the camera up, plugged the receiver into the tv, and had immediate coverage. The extended range antenna made it even better.

The best part of the system is the Lorex internet service.

All told, we are immensely pleased with this system. The image is clear and bright, the infrared system works in the barn in the darkest of nights, and it was truly plug-and-play.

Now - no more getting up every two hours during lambing season to go to the barn. We can just check the ewes on our iPad.

I purchased the LW482 package to replace my older LW2700 system. I have been very satisfied with my existing system but wanted more storage capacity and a bigger viewing monitor. The new system requires a PC-type monitor, so it can be very large. I will be able to give my old system to a friend and that one was easy to install and use. The new cameras seem to have a clearer display than the previous ones and have a stronger base, which was a weak point with the older ones; I am very happy with the cameras. What surprised me was that the LH148 unit (the DVR in the LW482 package) is SO DIFFERENT to the old one. The manual can be downloaded but it is very large, so I just printed selected pages. My use is quite limited when I look at all of the features, but it can be difficult to understand the complete system because of the many options available. I would have liked a basic user guide to be included with some simple "how to get started" information. I have always used motion-detected recording (because of the limited memory on the old system), but it was difficult to establish on the new system. Overall, I am very impressed with the quality and performance of this system. For the price, I don't think many of the purchasers would want a very sophisticated system. I would have preferred it to be geared to more limited use and easier to use. Having said that, I might want to look at remote access in the future. If you have the time to understand this system, it will work great; just don't expect the controls to be like your older system.

One big problem with the system is no directions came with the dvrecorder. I don't know what some of the things mean when I go into the menu and don't want to change things because I don't want to mess up the system? Lorex has to send me some instructions so I can use the menu in the system!

I only have it for a few weeks, I have been trying to get in touch with your support team but with a wait time of over an hour, it is not possible. I wanted to ask about your max fast forward speed on the dvr, it gives me one minute of recorded video in 3 to 4 seconds, I wanted to know if it can be increased, since my Q-SEE dvr gives me one minute for one second, another thing I wanted to ask is the jumpy video, instead of smooth motion, maybe the fact that it is wireless?. last it is the constant red blinking light in front of the the dvr, can it be stopped? if you can answer these questions I may be able to write a more positive review. jose

After struggling with and returning a Foscam wireless camera system, I purchased and installed the LW482. Set-up was simple including remote access. The cameras have worked flawlessly with good resolution since installation two weeks ago. One of my cameras is located approximately 120 feet (and around a corner) from the receiver - I consistently have 3-4 bars reception.
The only issue is with my Nokia 1520 Windows Phone - I'm unable to extract the Lorex Client 11 website .cab file to allow the browser to view my ddns. When I contacted Lorex online support, I was told Windows Phone support is not available. I hope I am able to use my Windows phone in the future. There are no issues with my wife's Android.
All in all, I highly recommend this system.

Also when installing the disk to my computer it installed a lot of programs that caused my computer to act up, was not happy about that all.

Replaced a non video system with the LWL104 2 pk which came with the LH0 10 Blackbox. After considerable research I finally chose this system due to the need for wireless capability for our circle drive way and a 30' x 70' garage that is about 150' from our house/office. Ordering direct from Lorex was easy and with quick shipping the product was received promptly. Initial setup was relatively easy but I did spend some time reviewing the quick guides and even more time reading the Recorder instruction manual. As a couple of other reviewers have noted, you do need some fundamental working knowledge of the equipment and process. Following the guidelines/instructions, the cameras were quickly installed and the recorder located in our office where it was hooked up to an extra HP HDMI 22" monitor. The connection between the cameras and the recorder was made by the equipment as soon as they were turned on. The menus of the recorder leave a little to be desired for overall settings and reviewing of any activities recorded. One of the first pitfalls was the seeming lack of an audible alert beep for motion detection. After setting the volume control at the maximum you could hear a faint electronic tone (if you were not over 5' from the receiver). This is not a workable situation if you need to monitor or be alerted to any activities in the camera areas and be able to respond to the same. This prompted an email to Lorex for technical assistance to confirm the actual sound type of the recorder and if there were any capability of an external sound device or other method for alert purposes. Response was reasonably timely but the response from the second level of support did not tell us the real identity of the sound we are supposed to hear and at what level, but only that there were no capability for alert sound control for the system. We still don't know if the recorder is functioning correctly (by the manufacturer's design) or not. The cameras do provide excellent viewing both in day time and night time but keep in mind that the resolution 720x240 of the recorder - may not be what you are used to on monitors, phones, ipads, etc. While a little disappointing overall for the price, I did know going in the basic limitations and or qualities of the equipment. If you want high quality viewing and recording definitely go with a higher quality product and if you feel a little challenged with computer of phone setups, professional installation may be well worth it. I give the system 4 stars (barely) because it does for the most part as it is advertised.

Like the system ok, the monitor not as much. I have to set the monitor on a desk and don't like that it does not tilt for better viewing when standing. We have a driveway alarm and I walk by to see who is in the driveway and the angle of the monitor is not good. Also, I wish there was a brightness control was handled on the monitor directly, instead of the program itself. I'd like to turn the brightness down at night, easily.

This product works as advertised and the sale price was a real bargain. Even though instructions are well written, it still requires technical skill and networking knowledge to setup. One thing about setting up DDNS and port forwarding: My setup has a Comcast modem connected to a NetGear high speed switch which connects the internal home network. Setting up port forwarding on only the NetGear switch was not enough. I had to first use port forwarding on the Comcast modem to the switch. This was because the IP subnet on the modem side of the switch was different than the IP subnet on the home network side of the switch. So when the DDNS traffic first comes into the house it goes through the Comcast modem which needs to be told to forward it to the switch which then forwards it to the Lorex DVR.

The wireless cameras work great for the most part. During testing I had one upstairs near the Lorex DVR and the other all the way down in the garage to test the range. The garage camera had some intermittent connectivity issues due to the distance including 2 levels of the house. But it will not be in the garage once testing is complete. The cameras are about 3 inches in diameter and with all the little red lights (presumably for night vision) on the face, they could not be well concealed - especially in the dark. So the hole in the plan is if an intruder notices the cameras, they could search the for DVR unit and take the evidence with them.

For remote viewing, I downloaded the Android app and it works great. Also works great using IE, but FireFox is not supported.

But I can finally see what my dog does all day. Which is why anyone would buy one these systems, right?

I bought this product direct from Lorex. They helped me select asystem and it was just what I wanted. Setup was reasonably easy thought the directions for some things were not as smooth as I'd have liked. The Port forwarding wizzard had to run a few times to work with my supported router. In reality, it might have been easier for me to make hte changes manually, as they werent so hard.
The system works perfectly, including the ddns on computer and iPhone 4 with iOS7 and iPad 1.
Mark me happy!

I was only concerned about the distance (about 100 ft) between my outdoor camera and the receiver in my basement. But as soon as I plugged the antennas, the signal worked no problem.

Although this package has plenty of capability, I found the user interface really lacking. Given the price, I would expect more thought to be put into how the user interacts with the device.

1. Although you can access and control the DVR remotely, there are some capabilities that must be done using a monitor attached directly to the DVR, like setting the time. This is frustrating as it means you need to have an attached monitor.

2. The receiver for the cameras offers two resolutions with an easy to use button on the front of the receiver to select. Too bad there's no indication what resolution you've selected.

3. The DVR interface has a steeper than required learning curve, requiring many references to the manual to figure it out. For instance, when configuring motion detection the software gives no indication whether a red tint to a selection indicates a selected area or de-selected area. To make it worse, the manual refers to a black area and not to a red tint area. It really came down to trial and error to figure this out.

4. I found the cameras to be a little narrow angle for a surveillance camera, but the night vision is rock solid. I'm amazed how well the night vision works. Also, the transmitter range is great.

If I had to do it again, I would seriously consider getting a higher resolution system than this. It's easy to forget how crappy 640x480 looks. :-)

The free technical support staff is very helpfull and curtious to assist with the initial setup of he system. I would not hesitate to recommend this Lorex product to anyone. Our neighborhood has been seeing many breakins over the past couple of years and knowing I have this surveillance system installed, really helps us feel more secure and protected. The only improvement would be to add the zoom feature on the cameras but this option is available on other cameras from Lorex. I purchased the 4 channel system. My only regret is that I should have taken the 8 channel system for futur expantion needs.

First off I am replacing my older SVAT 4 channel system with this Lorex 4Cam System, and the first thing I noticed was the ease of Set-Up! Unlike the SVAT, you dont have to be a Networking and IP Specialist! The Lorex comes with a CD that basically does everything for you, from setting up your cameras to accessing your router and setting up your Port Forwarding for viewing on the Internet from anywhere in the world! Its a BREEZE! 




Secondly, of course you might guess that Lorex and Apple have an iPhone App for this system as well...with a push of a button on my iphone, I am looking at my home in vivid detail from ANYWHERE! just AMAZING! 



I am Well pleased with this system!

Very good home system but not elegant



 

I purchased this system to monitor a home entryway that has recently become a trouble spot. Installation and configuration of the DVR was easy. Configuration of remote access was not so simple but, once accomplished, effective and reliable. What was not clear, owing to simplified product illustration, is that each wireless camera requires a corresponding wireless receiver module connected to the DVR. The manufacturer recommends that each receiver be separated from its neighbors at the back of the DVR. So if you have two cameras, there will be two receivers connected with two cables each: one for a power supply module, the other to the video input at the back of the DVR -- so two cameras means four cables, four cameras means eight cables, etc. Hiding the DVR in a drawer (depicted by the mfg.) is a visual myth unless the cameras are directly-wired to the DVR and not wireless. The DVR end of the installation is not at all elegant. I still don't know what to do with all those power cords, video cables, and receivers! Each wireless camera has a short power pigtail with a fat connector attached. Passing that through a wall required a hole (about half-inch) drilled through. The camera's power connector mates with the end of the cord leading from a power supply module that plugs into an AC outlet. As to performance, the cameras deliver very good image quality --equivalent to very good Web cams-- that provide enough detail to see what is happening and identify individuals. Nighttime infrared (IR) imaging is automatic and good as well though, as might be expected, is monochrome. Remote access allows viewing of near-realtime video from each camera or easy viewing of recorded video from times the user sets, all through an Internet Explorer browser window. The system performs as advertised and seems reasonably priced, just don't expect a neat installation!

Up and running in short order


Cameras work well. Mine are outside and connect nicely through the brick walls. Not super high definition and daylight is clearer than night. The unit installs effortlessly. The menus are not very initiative to navigate but I do get live and recorded views on my iPhone which is a very nice feature.
