PoE (Power over Ethernet technology) installation for IP cameras

IP cameras with PoE cabling for flexible installation

The NR8163 NVR uses power-over-ethernet (PoE) technology - an all-in-one solution that cuts cost and installation time. Simply connect your IP cameras to one of the NVRs 16 integrated PoE ports with a single cable that provides both power and video transmission. This allows you to position your IP cameras where you need them most without the need to have a power outlet nearby. An NVR like this can also incorporate a PoE switch. This not only allows you to decrease the amount of cabling needed for larger installations, it will also open the door to add more cameras to your security system.

HD night vision bullet IP cameras

We purchased a 1080p 16 Channel NVR system with 8HD cameras. The package arrived well packaged and in a timely manner. We had our system professional installed so other than what we observed we can't say much of the installation other than it took awhile to run the cables and setup the options on the system. Camera are a very nice picture quality and the options to be able to view them away from the business is really great. The only problem we have had is the fan on the system was very noisy when we first turned it on but quieted down somewhat. I called in to customer service about this issue and used the save my place in line so I didn't have to stay on hold but never received a call back. When I called in a second time I was on hold for 45 minutes before I hung up. I submitted a work ticket and it took 6 days to get a reply. I'm hoping we just caught them at an unusually busy time and if needed in the future the customer service will be much better.

The unit feels very solid and the software is generally very good. Cameras essentially configure themselves and almost couldn't be easier to set up. The only issue I have is the alarm block on the back of the NVR unit is almost totally undocumented, and phone support is of little help also. I find that I have to look at other manufacturer's documentation to understand how the alarm block wiring works on this Lorex unit. That seems kind of unfortunate. I wiring diagram or a couple of examples would be REALLY helpful for those who want to use those features.

I ordered the 16 Channel NVR with 8 HD cameras. The packed arrived and is very nice and seems high quality. The set up was very easy. Installation was easy. I you have a large house it is more difficult if you have to run the wires. I haven't had any problems from the hardware. The NVR module does have a moderately loud whine but it is not too bad since i have it in a cabinet. I am still tweaking the motion sensors for the cameras but they work great.

I purchased the LNR168 instead of the HDIP844DW since the LNR168 has a 16 channel NVR so I can add cameras at a later time. I am somewhat upset that this system comes with 8 bullet cameras and not 4 bullet and 4 dome. The dome cameras have the color night vision capability that the bullets do not have.

I received the system a few days after order and installed it yesterday (have one more camera to install). It was very easy to install, but to do it yourself you do need some tools for the ethernet wiring.

Overall the system is really good. I do have a few complaints about it though. The way that the wiring is packaged, all coiled up into a tight coil, it is a pain to get it straightened out. Try pulling wire that is not straight and it tend to kink and get caught very easy. There are weather connectors that they give to cover the connector, but you cant get them on with the connector on the wire, so I had to cut the connector off the wire for every one to put the cover on. Also some cameras came with different covers, some had rubber washers and multiple part for weather protection. I would have thought that they would all have the same ones.

I also had a problem finding the software, the instruction had a dead link, I had to call tech support and even they had a problem finding it for me but eventually we did.

Also I found that the NVR has a built in webserver (which I assumed that it would have), you need to use Internet Explorer for it but it works well. I do not like the FLIR software as you are going through the cloud which can slow down the feed instead of directly to the NVR.

The system also automatically has the cameras set to continuously record, for the great majority that is just unnecessary, figuring out how to configure for just motion took some time.

I was also able to get my phone up and running with the software and it works well. I still need to set up the email so that I get notifications for problems with the system.

I wish that the cameras had internal ethernet connections on them, right now there is a wire that comes off the camera that has 2 connections, one for ethernet and one for power (even though this is system is PoE). You have to drill very large holes in the house to get the connector through. If the connection was internal to the camera then you would not need that and drilling holes could be kept much smaller.

In the end I am extremely happy with the system as an overall, the quality of the images are just awesome. Now I will see how long the 3 TB drive will last with 8 cameras set on motion detection. If I get just over 3 weeks that would be great.

I will probably be ordering a few more cameras for inside the house.

Just a reminder if you plan to install this system on your own you may need some knowledge of making wires (they say you can use couplers, but I never trust them and just something else to fail), and to use their connector protectors you need to cut the connectors off.

I really like the picture quality but have to say that the support is probably the worst I've ever encountered. The system itself also is fairly difficult to use. I understand the value of having complex features available but there should be a simple menu as well with option for advanced settings. Unfortunately I had to get help from 5 different reps and none of them were of any help. I was promised call backs for issues which never happened. I'd have to say honestly that it was the worst customer service experience I've had in the last 5 years. I'm not sure I would recommend it.

Our apologies for any difficulty you experienced. We have attempted to reach you via email as well. Please email us back or call us at 1-877-755-6739 and we will be happy to assist you further.

Good product. I ran individual Ethernet lines to all cameras after talking to technical support and finding out the limitations of Poe after a power failure. Even still after a power surge from the power company and resulting power outage one camera was fried. Lorex did replace that camera under warranty. The app was easy to get working. Do not expect HD quality feed in the app, but it is good enough to see what is going on. The app needs upgrading.

This system worked great from the get go. I haven't had any experience with system installation but was able to install this system with no problems.

Did have to call customer service and used the "keep my spot in line" option they have. Placed the call at 8 am and received a call back shortly before 5 pm, so there definitely needs to be some improvement there.

I was recommended by a friend to use the Flir systems. He had done security installs for several years and loved their reliability, ease of use and flexibility of configuration. Even with the higher cost than other cheaper brands, the quality really shows through.
-UNPACKING
I first unpacked everything and let it run on the floor for several days to validate that all the devices were operating correctly. Not one DOA product, so we were are off to a great start. All cameras and the NVR were packed with plenty of foam and in bags to keep dust out.
-INSTALL DAY
Everything installed with no issues. All the cat 5E cables included were of the 568B protocol for termination which is pretty standard. A few of the cables came up just a few feet short, so custom CAT 5E lines had to be ran. If the kit had 80' cables, all my lines would be long enough right out of the kit. With the weather tight connectors a rather large hole (3\4") has to be drilled, and that is the only real negative I have. Because of my layout I was able to seal the weathertight connectors up inside the attic through the fascia board. I then used some 3/4" dowel rod to seal up the holes. The cameras come with anchors and screws. Be careful not to lose the set screws that are loose in the accessories bag. It would be nice if those were in a separate sealed little bag with the allen key.
-CONFIGURATION
The config is easy and difficult in the same breath. It is easy in that you can plug the cameras in and start recording instantly. The difficulty is when you need to make decisions on how everything records. Whether you do motion detect, alarm or continuous record. If motion detect, which cameras trigger, how long pre and post motion, do events chain together if they are within a certain time-frame together. What I did was start with continuous recording and then dial the system back to display the things I wanted. Then I started recording the motion detect and then when a camera sees motion, the cameras to the left and right of that camera record as well for a certain duration. This allows a full view of any situation that is triggered via motion detect. The default output of the NVR is 1280X1024 and the HDMI does not like it. So a VGA monitor is needed to get the initial 1920X1080 over HDMI working.
-ODDITIES
The PC and MAC software have some settings not on the main unit and vice versa. So if a setting is not taking on the cloud client software, go to the main unit and check the config there and input your variables and see if it works. The Flir cloud is easy to setup on Iphone and PC/MAC. One key thing that support helped me with is the password. If you accidentally set a password over the 6 character limit, then you may not be able to connect via mac or PC over the Internet. Correct the password and you will be golden. I have also found that if an outside location uses a proxy, you may not get viewing access from a MAC/PC client.
Overall, I have been enjoying the remote viewing over the internet and all the options to create a very custom recording model. It gives me plenty of confidence and I can review any alarms that are sent via email If I choose to do so.

After considerable research, our church opted for this system to monitor and protect our property.

Our shipment took some time to arrive; it wasn't shipped for nearly two weeks after ordering. Once it did finally arrive, it was packed and organized very neatly. The installation was super-straightforward - we have the cameras connected both directly to the NVR and to other POE routers in the building with no issues - and have been very pleased with the end product.

Highlights:
- No fuss, no muss install. It's about as close to plug and play as it gets.
- Image quality both during the day and with night vision is excellent on a computer monitor - truly HD.
- While the NVR configuration is pretty spartan - your entire user interface is a small optical mouse that plugs in with an on-screen keyboard - it's easy enough for a reasonably technical person to set up without reading the instructions end-to-end.

Disappointments:
- Long ship time. It played with our installer's schedule a bit.
- The cameras lost the static IP that they were given, but we were able to fix it.
- The image quality on the Android mobile app is good, but not great.

Other notes:
- The Windows camera client actually seems to be more capable than the NVR software itself. (For example, I can't name the cameras via the NVR, but I can using the software, which has a nicer UI, by the way.)

I would definitely use Lorex's camera systems again for a project like this.

First the bad things. The weather connection cannot be used unless you cut the RJ-45 plug off. Because of the way it's designed you cannot use the weather proof shield because you cannot thread the cable through it. You have to cut off the end, thread it through the opening and then using a crimping tool reconnect the plug. Very poor design. I ended up water sealing the connection with black electrical tape.
The user interface software used to access and manage the cameras/DVR is very DOS like and not at all what I expected from the company of this magnitude. I'm used to working on java thin clients front ends for Oracle/Cisco products and this is just very amateurish.
The NVR is very noisy.
Now the good things. Daytime picture quality is very good. The night IR is very good as well. It was easy to set setup. Downloading and install /configuring the iPhone Flir Cloud App was pretty simple and user friendly.

Lorex products are very reliable and good quality. This 16 channel system with 8 cameras works great for our business. A pack of 4 dome cams for the interior and 4 PTZs are on the way. We installed so far 4 cameras using our own cat 6 shielded outdoor UV resistant cable with self sustain wire and our project keeps expanding until we're done with all 16 cams.

So far we are satisfied with the NVR and its interface. Flir Cloud for PC works good, and the Android app works good as well.The only thing that we cannot do is to finish setting up the DDNS, Lorex is saying the have a glitch and they are working on it.

I'll write more next month with some feedback about the system's performance on the long run.

Some of the best image quality out there. I have a very non typical set up with using wireless bridges to extend the camera system a bit over a kilometer away... but everything is running great! Teaching the flir cloud software to new users can take a bit of a learning curve but it works great after the initial setup.

I reached out to support for a question or 2 during setup and had speedy responses.

My only issue was with the illumination of the IR at night... it couldn't reach quite as far as my client wished... but that was easy to fix using a few IR spotlights which light up buildings a good 100 yards away from a camera for night viewing.

These cameras are great! Although I am having more of a issue with customer support than anything. I had 1 camera not work straight out of the box. I called customer service. They claimed they were sending out a replacement and that was weeks ago now. Overall, great cameras when they work, and lousy customer support.

Thank you for your feedback. We apologize for the delay with your replacement and hope everything is working well now.

The system was very easy to install and has met our expectations for a reliable surveillance-security system. The only feature that has not worked well is the Flir-Cloud Ap, and which forces us to "reboot" our devices everytime we need to login to the system. Research on the issue indicates this is a common problem with the application component, and once this issue is resolved, the system will be 100% to our satisfaction.

WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE I HAVE EVER ENCOUNTERED

on

March 11, 2016

Location: California

UPDATE: After reaching a supervisor my warrantee NVR replacement was expedited. It arrived within a couple of days. I am now happy that the NVR is back up and running and happy that the warrantee was honored by Lorex.

My order was made in late November and received without all of the parts in December. It took weeks of calling repeatedly to get everything I purchased before it could be installed. Finally received the missing parts, got it up and running the first part of January. It ran two months and died. I have now spend three weeks trying to get the warrantee replacement with no luck. Every time I call I am told it is under warrantee and that the replacement will be sent in 24 to 48 hours. This has gone on for over 3 three weeks now. DO NOT BUY THIS UNIT unless you have hours and hours to spend listening to a voicemail loop while waiting to speak to customer service who cannot or will not process your warrantee. My unit had an extended warrantee.

Quite easy installation and setup. I prefer to use the Lorex DDNS service because it seems more reliable than using the device ID system for remote access on iOS devices. The FLIR Cloud app is one of the reasons for purchasing this setup - I have several systems, and the app can handle all of them, and it's easy to monitor several locations at once. Camera and picture quality is very good, haven't tested night vision yet.

Excellent picture and quality cameras. Perfect DYI job, no issues. I installed 8 cameras with all wires in the walls / ceilings in 8 hrs. Another 8 hrs to closes my openings. NVR fan is a bit loud, no an issue unless u have it in the open. All items arrived carefully packaged, all poe cables worked with no issues. I look forward to buying/installing another 8 of these cameras as I have a 16 channel unit.

This is my first security camera system and I am really happy with it. So far I have only connected 2 of then 8 cameras, but it is a fairly simple process and do not expect any issues with the remaining cameras.

The software interface is intuitive, as is the mobile app.

The only issue was the shipping time. However, I did order during a huge sale, so it was sort of expected.

When comparing all the security system brands, I was quite overwhelmed. I chose Lorex and do not regret my decision one bit. This system is amazing. Unbelievable quality. Easiest security system to set up. Not only did it connect to my iPhone in seconds, it didn't take long to figure out how to setup the POE switch with little networking knowledge. My only complaint would be that the fan in the NVR is a bit loud for home use.

So far I have to say the system itself appears to be very stable. I am satisfied with that. The issue I have is remote access is not very easy with a Windows 10 machine and I am having problems with my MAC accessing the system as well. My IPhone access does work flawlessly. At this time I only have 1 camera set up but should have at least 7 setup in 2 to 3 weeks.

Purchased the 8 camera NVR system. Very impressed with the picture quality for the outstanding price. Not sure if I am going to keep as with everyone else the whine of the Power supply fan is to the point where it is annoying. Certainly a better designed fan can be found other than the no-name unit that is in it. A quiet fan would make this great system excellent. Can only rate it 3 stars because of the fan.

Great product, especially for this price. The VNR unit itself a bit noisy, I think it is the fan that makes the most of the noise. Otherwise perfect unit. Great quality, especially the 1080P cameras that provide crystal clear picture. Also, much better than traditional coaxial cameras since you don't need the separate power cable.

I installed system today, and it seems to work fine . The fan of the unit is running loud but i can live with that. Cameras have very good quality picture and phone app is easy to set up. I had trouble connecting to the internet just because the LAN cable was bad right out of the box. Also one bullet camera is not working at all!!! I will file warranty claim to get replacement. Other than that this system is very nice. I hope warranty support people will take care of this issue for me.

I was skeptical at first so I did a lot of research and decided Lorex had a 60 day garantee so how could I go wrong, I ordered an NVR, POE, IP, HD, and one PTZ LNZ32P12. Wow at 150 feet, I have no problem reading license plates with the PTZ and the HD quality day and night with the 2MP IP fixed bullet camera is awesome . We were burglized twice in three years, the Sheriffs Office said they were more interested in the vehicle for ID than seeing pics in the burglar. I have both area covered now. I am so very, very pleased, thanks Lorex. Easy to install too.

The teck line was great,they really know there stuff. A replacement camera was sent to me but could have been faster. Over three weeks.The set-up was easy for the camera views. IT took 2 calls to tec support to get the unit to send snapshots to my PC (motion).

I have been looking at NVR technology for some time. Reason being is the Power over Ethernet (POE) capability. I have been in networking industry for 20 years and manufactures such as Cisco have been using POE to power their devices for years. Proven technology and wiring (CAT5e/6) needed to connect the cameras is a foundation. Meaning, POE will be around for some time. So when you upgrade at some time in the future, you will not have to worry about changing out to a new cable platform. To the Lorex Technology. As many have stated, set up is a breeze. Android easily connected with the NVR and i'm working out some issues with the client software for my PC. I'm suspecting it is more a user issue then anything. The FLIR cloud allows seemless viewing while on 4G. The cameras work well in low to no light situations. I'm not 100% certain the field of view is as stated on the marketing material. Bit narrow vision. I'm speculating the reason is attributed to the long range of night vision. Balancing act between wide field of view and long range night vision.

I have the 8 camera system, but I only have change to install 2 dome cameras, so far I love the quality. I had a little problem when one of my cameras turn green color , did everything I could , reset the NVR, change settings, restart NVR but nothing helped. I decide to remove the camera cover , and suddenly started to work. Will be nice if on the web interface you have the option to restart the NVR, but that's OK. I will install the other bullet cameras in the next weeks for a total of 7 cameras.

This is my first system, so all is new to me. Setup was easy, ran the wires and connected to the NVR. Only have 1 camera connected so far, but the picture quality of the bullet camera is very good. And yes, I can see bugs at night too. Although setup was pretty straight forward using the supplied setup sheet, I haven't found how to setup the email alerts yet, although I'm sure a quick call to support will get me rolling in no time.

Easy setup with the provided materials. The image is great during daylight hours. The night vision is much better than I had expected. One problem with the night vision is that the IR seems to attract insects and spiders. This sets off the motion detection recording. Not much Lorex can do about that. Monitoring from my PC is simple- again with easy setup. I can also monitor with my smartphone, but really have not found that feature to be useful.

This is my first video security camera system. I bought the 4 camera system and I am very pleased so far. The picture is better than expected and the night vision is good. I was looking for a system that I could monitor online and get notifications of alarms. This system does it all and then some. After a few mistakes on my part I had my computer and phone accessing the system with ease. Since the system is easy to monitor from my iPhone or computer, I located the system in a remote out of the way location. The manual is large so plan to spend some time getting things set up and adjusted. I am getting far to many detection events at the present time due to the system needing some fine tuning. (I have too many cats.) For a do it your self person, I would recommend. NO problems so far.

I didn't set up my ddns connection properly so I can't use my PC to view the cameras but the iPad app is working great. Some more hard copy help would be helpful to those less experienced. you literally need to take a person from the street with a high school education and walk each step to make this product phenomenal. I am very happy with the quality of the video and motion detection. I would love it if you added some wireless camera option since I have some areas with power but not a wired connection capability. I will be modifying the configuration as time goes but didn't fully setup remote administration

However I was generally satisfied with the product and remote accessibility (previous comment about software remains the same) To date TWO of four cams installed outside are showing poor picture quality, detailed observation now impossible. Possible/likely cause moisture in the optics, outside lens spotless. Considering a purchase of LOREX Security System? Do yourself a favor and try to contact LOREX phone number, in particular in regard to Warranty. I can not imagine that anyone from LOREX ever tried to call this number from within USA/Canada. Product/Service rating suffers significantly. LOREX, if anyone cares, fix this issue a.s.a.p....please

LNR4082TC4B Let me be honest with you. It’s truly the easiest system to get up running. The video quality is great. I use the FLIR Cloud App on both my iPhone and iPad and both work extremely well. I also installed the FLIR Cloud (FLIRCloud_CMS_PC-2.1.23) software on my work PC. This takes a little more configuration, but is pretty straight forward. I’m looking at adding a PTZ camera next. I personally wouldn’t waste my time or money with a cheaper, and yes I mean “cheaper” system. Based on quality, ease of installation, and customer service, I would definitely recommend a Lorex system.

LNR4082TC4B I added 25’ HDMI and 25’ USB cable for wireless mouse, don’t here fan noise anymore. Unit is in the Cellar on top of cabinet. Digital zoom in feature sux. During day time can read license plates up to 40 away feet standing still. Face recognition 15 to 20 feet away. Night light will detect cars lights over 130 away. Object appear wider than they are. Use FLIR Cloud software for remote connection but with speeds 25/25 is too slow connecting. FLIR Cloud software provides Dahua Smart Player software to play back DAV files on your computer so i download there client app to use on my Mac IT works better on my network better than FLIR version all 4 cameras come up in 1080P. Safari is not supported for NVR for local connection, just Windows i think. Tech support very help for 3 times that i call. first was about user Accounts Second was how to shut off sub streams recording sense i do not have a iPhone or iPad to view them. Just trying to save on disk space and networking bandwidth. On the NVR there is option to turn off Sub Stream but doesn’t work. Third was about accounts FLIR software home page Account Icon doesn’t communicate to NVR so i delete all the users that i add. On the home page click on device cfg this were you find account icon that configures NVR Account setting. Turn off email alerts after 560 detections in 1 night of fog.

After much research, decided to purchase the LNR400 for my first security system and have been very pleased with it so far, but it's only been a month. Set up was quick and easy. Took longer to figure out where to put the cameras (wife was helping). The fan is not as noisy as I thought it would be from reading other reviews, but I did place it in a closet. The picture quality is fantastic! The FlirCloud is taking a little while to figure out, but the more we play with it, the easier it gets. All in all, I would definately recommend!

Replaced a LNR300 that died after 1 year and 3 months. Lorex offered a 15% discount (after 1-1/2 hours with tech support and 2 hours on hold with sales!!!!!!).....Costco gave me a full refund! The LNR400 uses Flir Cloud app. Lorex Stratus app for the LNR300 system was useless. Flir app works perfectly Also like the fact I can add PTZ cameras if I feel the need to do so. So far so good...got my fingers crossed after LNR300 problems

I purchased this system from Costco along with 2 PT dome cameras, honestly speaking I can't imagine there are any other systems out there that would match this quality. I will list what I liked and what I slightly disliked, nevertheless I still give it 5 stars. The good: - Very easy to install, just hook the cameras, start the NVR, and you're all set, default settings will get the system going. - Quality of the video, and the search tool is awesome, you don't have to view or scan a whole day of video to find out when the action happened, you can easily spot the times of the day where motion was detected. - I got additional HDD from Amazon, the drive came with no cable or screws! I know that Lorex were smart enough as they had already provided an extra cable with the kit, but it below me away when I also found they provided the HDD screws. Very thoughtful. Overall experience is great, I would recommend this system to anyone. The bad (or maybe..the less than good): - Although the software on the NVR has many details, the location of options and setup pages feels so weird, I think the entire application could use some makeover, proper redistribution of options. Or maybe I am not used to that logic yet. I was a software developer for years, and I feel this could use a better design/reorg. - The process to setup email alerts is simply painful, I play with routers, modems, switches, etc for decades, and I am still facing problems with this one.I obviously have to allocate a day off to get this done. Reason being it just fails, even though I've set the required DDNS, I think there are more to it than that. Will keep trying. - The PT Dome camera sadly doesn't support auto panning, or touring, or anything that would make it keep moving automatically by itself, and honestly I think that's laziness as this is just a software enhancement to allow this feature, no hardware change is required, I assume. - The PT dome camera again sadly does not support night vision, so it doesn't seem useful outdoors unless you hook a motion detector light nearby. Don't get me wrong, I like that dome camera, but I think it lacks the above two features. - The NVR could use a bigger fan, for two reasons, (a) lower noise level, (b) faster cooling. Over all, I am happy with this system. Thanks

We are very pleased with system. The initial setup is very easy and picture quality is very good. Overall, I think it is an excellent system that will only get better as we take advantage of the more advanced features. The NVR is a computer and it has a cooling fan, which is slightly louder than a desktop computer. Couple of cons for me: 1. I wish the viewing angle (72 degrees) was greater, 2. I wish the documentation was better organized. Setup: 2 cameras connected to the NVR and 2 connected to a router.

Purchased on Lorex website at a good discount on Black Friday 2014 and installed at our lake home over the Christmas holiday. I’ve waited to submit a review until using the system for a while. Overall, I’ve been very happy with the system. The PoE 1080p cameras are easy to install and provide excellent picture quality (infrared works great). Connecting to WAN was very quick and easy, literally plugged in and worked. Connecting outside firewall was messy but customer support (“Nick” A., Sean & Max B.) was very responsive and helpful. Main complaint (as most other reviews stated) is that the NVR is very noisy. Also, customer support wasn’t able to help me get DDNS to work so I’ve only been able to connect via FLIR Cloud Client which works great on iPhone, iPad, laptops & desktops.

Very pleased with this NVR system, its cameras and how quick and easy it was to get it all up and running. POE powered cameras and integrated switch built into the NVR makes installation simple as running a single wire to each camera. Each camera comes with 100ft of pre-terminated cable which is ample for all but the longest of runs. The day & night video quality of the Bullet and Pan&Tilt cameras included with the LNR4082TC4P2B kit purchased from Costco is superb. The IR-Leds on the Bullet Cameras illuminate the whole field of view and viewing range exceeded expectations. The available motion of the Pan&Tilt cameras means they're best mounted on a ceiling or soffit instead of a wall. There's a ton of options, nested menus and settings in the NVR. Fortunately everything seems to work right out of the box so learning where all the settings & options are is purely optional.

I've only installed two cameras so far but the picture quality is great at night and day. The nightvision works great to the distance specified. Overall I am very pleased so far.

Bought this unit on sale with high expectations that were met. The install was very easy as it requires only one wire per camera, and the kit provided more than enough cable to run each camera through the attic with plenty left over. Once I downloaded the manual it was easy to set up the web based software to view on my cellphone or computer when on the go. The only recommendations are to ensure the cameras have the required viewing angle to suit your needs, and get a wireless mouse! Makes it much easier to control the unit when placed away from the screen.

I had been looking at security camera systems for over a year. I always seemed to come back to the Lorex brand. For me, Lorex had the highest quality with the most features in the price point I was trying to stay in. I finally bit the bullet and bought the Lorex LNR4082TC4B from Costco. Overall, I am extremely pleased with the system. Picture quality in both day and night mode is fantastic. The software is very sophisticated. There seems to be an endless amount of parameters that can be adjusted and tweaked to ones liking. I had need to call technical support, and was rather surprised at the helpfulness and knowledge of the person that guided me through my issues. I would agree with other reviewers that the NVR fan is loud. I also don’t understand why the cameras come with a power jack as well as the Ethernet connection. The camera gets its power from the Cat5 cable so the power jack seems to be a useless pigtail coming out of the camera that just gets in the way. I would not hesitate in recommending this system to family or friends.

For me, Lorex had the highest quality with the most features in the price point I was trying to stay in. I finally bit the bullet and bought the Lorex LNR4082TC4B from Costco. Overall, I am extremely pleased with the system. Picture quality in both day and night mode is fantastic. The software is very sophisticated. There seems to be an endless amount of parameters that can be adjusted and tweaked to ones liking. I had need to call technical support, and was rather surprised at the helpfulness and knowledge of the person that guided me through my issues. I would agree with other reviewers that the NVR fan is loud. I also don’t understand why the cameras come with a power jack as well as the Ethernet connection. The camera gets its power from the Cat5 cable so the power jack seems to be a useless pigtail coming out of the camera that just gets in the way. I would not hesitate in recommending this system to family or friends.

I researched security systems for months and I always seemed to find myself by back to the Lorex Website. I called a few times to have questions answered and customer service was extremely helpful and knowledgeable about their products. The only downside to the 1080p system is that their are not many products that are interchangeable with the system (i.e.. wireless capabilities and allowing to tape in tour mode for the additional dome camera I purchased). Love the system.

I bought The LNR4082TC4B system from Costco. The installation was very straightforward. All cameras were plug and play. The Flir Cloud app is a great tool to set up your cameras. The app was very easy to setup. Just scan the bar code on your DVR and your up and running. I'm very pleased with the crystal clear picture. Overall I'm very happy with the purchase.

This system was easy to set up, the cameras work well, POE is great, and the NVR screens are intuitive after a little bit of use. Only a couple of issues so far: 1. When cameras are connected via a switch rather than directly to the box, the motion detection settings are different and less adequate. You can't set thresholds or different parameters for different regions. Also the cameras connected via switch have a hard time stocking to the right timezone. 2. It is very cool to be able to access the cameras and update settings via the internet. The client software is atrocious, though. It works fine, but there are essentially no instructions and it is very, very clunky. 3. There's no way to back up to network attached storage. If you want to backup on site and not to the cloud (because maybe your data cap is low and you don't want to stream to the cloud constantly), you can back up to another drive in the device. But if someone takes the device, that doesn't help. Why not allow backup to NAS? Overall, though, seems like great value for the money so far.

I purchased the LNR300 Series 16-Channel Security NVR with HD IP cameras after researching several systems. None of the others had the feature or ease of connection this system has. The clarity of both the daylight and night vision images is outstanding. The POE switch is rack mount with all mounting hardware included. The DVR unit is not, or the mounting hardware was not included. Very pleased so far. Mark

The LNR4082TC4B purchased at Costco is a very good product. Pros: 1) Excellent daytime picture quality. 2) Excellent nighttime picture quality as well; as great as that can be anyway. 3) Easy setup. 4) Easy to follow setup instructions. 5) One wire connection for fixed cameras. 6) PLZ capabilities already built in to the system. 7) Easy to save recorded data to a flash drive and view on any computer. 8) Tech support is awesome. Very professional, responsive and knowledgeable (unlike Samsung). 9) Easy to connect to using my Ethernet and iPhone/iPad. Cons: 1) The internal fans are a little loud, but where I placed the NVR, it doesn’t matter. 2) Had an issue with one of the cameras (Lorex immediately sent a replacement). 3) Cannot shut off the night vision in low light situations. 4) Doesn’t communicate with my plasma TV. :( 5) Cameras aren’t available in different colors (from all the pics I saw, I thought they were at the least, a medium gray).

I purchased this unit about a year ago from Costco. The quality of camera and the video they produced is pretty high. NVR works well and I added another 3TB hard disk to make it RAID1 (mirroring). This process went well too. The biggest issue I have is the SMTP alert setup with Gmail. This is the issue I still don't have a solution after working with Lorex support for months. You just google "Lorex Gmail SMTP" and will see this is a common problem with Lorex' system. Ironically there is a "Default" Email Mode in the Email setting on its configuration page, and that default one is not working and is also not recommended by Lorex support. They advised using Gmail SMTP but they also don't have a working example that can help their customers. I travel a lot and this email alert is one of the most important features for me. If this is something important to you, you may want to look for something that has more reliable and straight-forward email alert feature and configuration. I just purchased a $89 Foscam FI9831P which is way more user friendly in terms of email SMTP configuration (than my $1,600 Lorex). I hope Lorex tech support can document how SMTP really works on their website someday.

Lorex Tech support is terrible. Some of the Lorex mobile apps will not work with Lolipop OS for Android. Even though Lorex knows of this issue, which has been present for months, they are dragging their feet to address the issue and fix the problem. If ability to remotely view your cameras is important to you, don't want your time with Lorex as they could apparently care less about their customers needs.

This is an excellent system for both residential and commercial use. The night vision clarity and distance in the bullet cameras exceeded my expectations. The user interface is not the most friendly if the user isn't tech savvy but all the features and configurability you could want are there. I've already added a 5th PTZ camera from Lorex to the system and the integration is seamless. Great product! 4 stars because of the GUI. I've spent way too much time explaining and showing clients how to operate the system.

Frist of all, I want to say I have had three Swann systems, and only one Lorex system, my current LNR400 8-channel system. And Lorex is way ahead Swann. Price for price the quality of the components and software are much better. I like the setting features much better as well. Picture quality is excellent, and I also had excellent results with Lorex's technical support. All in all I have to give Lorex a 5 star rating.

I just called the support, for the second time since my purchase, last week. Both times, it was Andrew, who gives me an amazing support. This morning, he spent about 90 minutes to answer and fix all my requests. Email configuration and motion detection settings. What a great support I got, especially just after the support hours, so at 9h05 am . Now I can enjoy my NVR. Andrew linked to my own PC via Bomgar session, so I was able to share exactly what was my concerns. 5 stars P.S. like some other people, about the fan, this is my second DVR (the old one from another supplier) and this is exactly the same, so this is not only an issue from Lorex but many others. From my point of view, this is not an issue, as my NVR is located in a closed section..

Just finished installing this. Love the quality of the cameras and the recordings. True 1080. It was a breeze to install. If there is one thing I would like to see them Lorex do to improve this would be to add more cameras to the compatibility list with this NVR. I have 5 outdoor cameras and would really like to add 2 indoor camera like the Lorex IP cameras and be able to record the video in the same NVR. Unfortunately that cannot be done today... At least support your own cameras on all your own platforms.

Tech support was very helpful when I had problem loading the client software on my PC. Like other reviews, the only negative is the noisy fan so putting this in a closet and closing the door is the only way to mitigate the noise. Overall, a very good system.

Nice system. Easy setup with Android device. Rest of settings take some reading and playing with the settings. Single cable hookup for power and communication makes installation a lot easier. The only drawbacks are navigating the web server. It is not compatible with all browsers. There is not an adjustment I can find for the fan speeds so it is very loud as other reviewers have mentioned. We had an older Q-See system before that was very simple to use. The image quality is a huge difference. So I would recommend this product!

Overall I'm happy with the system, but I have a few small complaints. First, within a day of installing the cameras, one of the network cables that came with the system failed and I had to replace the cable. Second, I find the FLIR Cloud software to be buggy. It will show that the system is offline when in fact it is up. I have to remove the device, then re-add it for it to show as being online. Third, when I use the web interface, my browser keeps telling me the login page is in Chinese and asks me if I want to translate it. When I looked at the source code of the page, I see it contains Chinese characters. Fourth, I can't use the web interface in Google Chrome which is my preferred browser. It keeps telling me to install the plugins even though I installed them. Fifth, the instructions for setting up web access don't seem disjointed. In one place, there were instructions for setting up DDNS, but nothing about port forwarding. Then somewhere else, it mentions port forwarding, but nothing about DDNS. Since port forwarding and DDNS are both required for web access, it seems to me the instructions should combine the two. But despite these issues, I'm happy with the system so far.

Running the Cat6 cable was the hardest part. Once you figure out the software, it's pretty easy to use. I would say it took me a week to work all the kinks out and get the system setup and running smoothly. Tech support on the phone has been really great. My three complaints are: 1) The fan in the NVR is noisy. 2) The app for the iPhone is really bad; the cameras connect in the app, show a couple seconds of live feed then the app closes and I have to restart my phone to even be able to connect again. 3) The cameras aren't as wide angle as I'm used to with my cheaper IP cameras. Other than those three issues I would recommend this system!

Had the opportunity to contact tech support to setup port forwarding and their service was outstanding. Only wish additional cameras were not so expensive. Would recommend the LNR400 product line to anyone looking for a well built system.

It is nice that you only need to run 1 cat 5 cable to each camera from the NVR. Lorex included everything that was needed to set the system up. I am very pleased with my purchase.

Purchased this system at Costco and so far I am very happy with it. I was upgrading from an 8 year old system with 420l cameras....what a difference. Much better field of view and amazing quality at night compared to the old cameras. Keep in mind if you are upgrading to this system, you will have to replace your old coax cables as all cameras with this system run on Ethernet. I think it was well worth the effort because of the many improvements this brings to the system. Although it says it only supports Lorex cameras, with a bit of playing you can get ONVIF cameras to work which is an added bonus. There are quite a number of advanced options on this system, which are nice for the more advanced users. I do plan to add a second hard drive because the one that comes with it is not sufficient for my needs, but adding another WD Purple drive is not very expensive at all.

Keep in mind if you are upgrading to this system, you will have to replace your old coax cables as all cameras with this system run on Ethernet. I think it was well worth the effort because of the many improvements this brings to the system. Although it says it only supports Lorex cameras, with a bit of playing you can get ONVIF cameras to work which is an added bonus. There are quite a number of advanced options on this system, which are nice for the more advanced users. I do plan to add a second hard drive because the one that comes with it is not sufficient for my needs, but adding another WD Purple drive is not very expensive at all.

Purchased this package and installed it with relative ease. The mobile apps work great. The setup was straightforward. Camera quality is very good both day and night. I had some problems on setup if you don't plug into 1080P TV then you cannot setup the DVR because default resolution is set to 1080P and you cannot change it without accessing the menus. The TV I am using for monitoring was not 1080 P and I had to plug it into another TV change the resolution then hook it back up to the non-1080P TV and I could not use the HDMI cable for some reason - had to use VGA cable for it to work with non 1080P TV as monitor. Other than that it is a great product. User interface on DVR could be simpler. If you only have 2 cameras there is no 2 Camera Split screen - it's 1, 4 or 8. Not a big deal but would be nice to have a 2 camera split screen view. Not available on mobile either.

This is my very first experience with a security system. I received my extremely well packed system in one medium sized box. Upon unpacking the box everything was well wrapped and nothing was damaged or omitted everything in the kit was there. I first set everything up on the bench to verify everything was working correctly and it was. I got the 4 bullet camera system. Thee 100' of supplied cat5e cables was sufficient for all 4 camera runs in the attic. I mounted the 4 cameras outside the house under the eves to cover the front door, garage door and rear door. I installed the NVR in a closet and used the following to connect to my 50" HD TV:. With the above items the NVR works perfectly while be hidden away in another room! Overall this system is complete and very easy to set up and install. I am a little disappointed in the 2.0 MP cameras as they do not hold a clear crisp picture when using digital zoom to identify a license plate etc. I will also remove a star for the lack of Windos Phone 8 application support for remote viewing and monitoring. The FLIR cloud set up is very easy for iPad and PC and works as expected. I would recommend this to anyone as long as they are OK with a 2MP camera instead of a 3 MP camera. By the way COSTCO has the best pricing on this system when they run it on sale!

I purchased a Lorex 16 channel camera system with 8 cameras and a 3TB video recording system. The cameras have an excellent 1080p resolution and night vision up to 100 ft from the camera. I bought at Costco, at a bargain price. The system was easy to install and it has functioned without any troubles since July, 2014. I love the connectivity of the system, as the client mobile application can be loaded on your smart cell phone and I can monitor my home from anywhere in the United States. I would highly recommend this product to anyone looking for a reliable home/business video system, at a very reasonable cost.

I bought this system at CostCo including 8 channel NVR and 6 cameras, four bullet and two dome. System works as advertised. The bullet cameras are better than the domes. The image quality is quite good, and installation was simple. Love the POE simplicity. The most difficult thing was running the wires through the attic, and out the eaves of my house. This got tight and tricky when placing cameras in far corners of an attic with sprayed-in insulation. This isn't a fault of the product, just saying. The software is OK, but to get 5 stars it would have to be more intuitive. I work in IT, and am a good judge of software. There are monitoring/viewing options in an installed Windows app, via a web browser and on my Android devices. Remote viewing vie FLIR is great. All app options work well, once the terminology and functionality are familiar. Still figuring out some features, such as email and alerting. Also will be considering adding PTZ cameras on the two empty ports, to increase coverage and functionality. The NVR device itself is nice, and supports HDMI and VGA. Great resolution at 1080p end-to-end. It fits nicely in my wiring closet. The only knock on the NVR itself is that the fan is loud. Overall very satisfied with the product, quality and functionality. Would recommend to anyone interested in NVR surveillance and security.

overall very simple to setup and get online - much earlier than my previous lorex system. i'm not terribly happy with the Flir IOS app as it keeps crashing, but the level of control on the actual system is quite good and flexible. I'm still trying to get the motion detection setup properly, which is a bit difficult given the level of fine tuning that is available. The night view has not been that great - seems to be due to light pollution from the streetlight, so that is quite disappointing. But the day time view is super clear.

I bought the LNR360 from Costco in response to some concerning issues I had encountered in our area recently. I chose the LNR360 due to the combination of it being accessible from outside the internal network, using IP cameras, and the capability of future expansion to greater than 9 cameras if I were to buy additional IP cameras. A few very nice features: - The DVR actually has 8 of the 9 cameras covered for using POE. The really nice part about this is that you do not have to have 9 cameras putting traffic across your network. Even if the traffic data is compressed that can be a lot of unnecessary traffic. - The cameras are capable of using CAT5 cable. Does not have to be CAT6 or even CAT5e. Finding CAT5 in-wall cable is extraordinarily cheap. I did not realize this when I purchased the system otherwise I would not have purchased CAT6 and saved myself a few bucks. - The Internet DNS registration process could not be any simpler. Someone with next to no IT experience can set this up without any difficulty. - The DVR itself is pretty quiet. Some of these things can run you out of the room but this one can reasonably put somewhere that is not locked in a closet or server room. While the software is, to be kind, buggy most of it really isn't necessary. The viewer does work far better on Firefox or Chrome than it does Internet Explorer, but it still typically works on IE. A couple of notes on this: Make sure you have given the device a static IP. Lorex's instructions act as if this is unimportant and that couldn't be further from the truth. This also extends to Camera #9 since that will also be going across your network (which is why Lorex ships the additional POE switch). Give them static IPs and remember them and it'll make your life easier later on. The DVR allows for mirroring the hard drive. This does not mean you get more recording space after installing the drive, it's only there if the first drive dies and you can no longer get to the information from the first disk. It's simply a live copy of the first disk's data. Also, while you can hook up a USB HD to the DVR the method for transferal of the old data is clunky to put it most politely. There is no automatic transfer to the USB drive, nor is there a real good way to figure out what is being transferred. For the price and features, this is a pretty solid buy.

Purchased through CostCo and thought still doing a shakedown get before permanent installation, I can say that local control and functionality is working as advertised. Image quality from the camera themselves is great! The most frustrating part however has been getting it configured for remote viewing via the iPhone, iPad, and web-based DDNS Service offered by Lorex. If I can resolve that issue I'll be revising my review to a the full 5 stars.

After having the LNR400 syetem for a week, I have to say I have very mixed feelings about it. On one hand I love the simplicity of POE cameras. Providing power and video signal over a single wire is fantastic. The 1080p and 30 fps video quality is amazing. Having apps available for multiple tablets and smartphones is a must these days and Lorex does not disappoint. On the other hand, the software, while providing many features and the ability to tweak many settings is pretty poor, especially the playback function (search). I previously owned an older system made by Logitech. The cameras and technology were okay, but the user experience in the software was pretty amazing. Using a virtual scrubber, you could easily fast forward, rewind, slow motion, etc. These features are also available in the Lorex software, but it is clunky and difficult to use. I have also run into a situation where when trying to playback in 4 screen mode, one camera seems to be on all the time, while it skips over recordings from the other cameras. Basically, I have to watch one feed at a time to see what has happened during the day. I can't believe the system software was designed to work that way. I submitted a ticket on the issue and got a reply back the next day. Their solution was reset the NVR and unplug the cameras and plug them back in. The reset didn't help. Guess I'll be calling support tomorrow. This system has so much potential, but in my opinion the software is keeping it from being a great product.

We bought this HD system to replace an old ECO system from Lorex with wireless cameras. Although the ECO system worked well, we had problems with losing the wireless connection to the cameras which had to be powered off and back on again about once a week to restore the connection. So the replacement system dictated the need for a wired connection since we were fed up with having to repeatedly reset the cameras. The PoE feature of this system means that there is no need to provide separate power to the cameras since it is included in the CAT5e cabling. As expected with a cabled camera system, the biggest time consuming job was the wiring in the roof. Installing the cameras was fairly easy once the cabling was finished. The last and final step in setting up the LNR400 itself and using FLIR Cloud for remote access/viewing was extremely easy. No need to set up DDNS like in the previous system. We are extremely pleased with the image quality and this was a huge improvement over the old ECO system. Of course, night quality is not as good as the amazing quality during daytime, but still a large improvement. The cameras are have metal housing, are sturdy and well built compared to the previous wireless ones. One bit of advice. Remember to download the full manual from the Lorex website and read it before turning anything on. The quick start guide that comes with the system is good but the manual gives you a lot more info. Overall, we are very pleased with the ease of setup of this product and the image quality.
