Confidently protect the things that matter with this robust HD 1080p security monitoring system ideal for your home or small business. This web exclusive security system features our 8-channel NR800 network video recorder (NVR). It also includes four HD IP cameras (2 domes and 2 bullets). These vandal-proof (IK10 rated) IP security cameras feature motorized varifocal lenses and outstanding night vision capabilities. Perfect for your growing small business, there’s room to accommodate four additional IP cameras as your security needs evolve.
1080P NVR can support up to 8 cameras
2 bullet + 2 dome 1080p varifocal cameras
Maximum night vision
Maximum Capacity 2 x 6TB hard drives
Capture the details you need with full 1080p high definition security monitoring - it can be the difference in identifying vital details such as faces or license plate numbers. These IP cameras also record footage at 30 frames-per-second to provide you with smooth on-screen movement. 3D digital noise reduction (DNR) technology filters noise from your image (day and night) for a cleaner, more accurate image.
The HDIP822V security system uses power-over-ethernet (PoE) technology for an easy and flexible installation process. With PoE technology, each camera only requires a single cable to connect it to the NVR. This all-in-one cable provides both power and video transmission up to 300ft / 91m. This allows you to position your cameras where you need them most without the need to have a power outlet nearby. A network security system like the HDIP822V can also incorporate a PoE switch. This allows you to minimize the amount of cabling needed for larger installations.
The security cameras in the HDIP822V security system feature motorized varifocal functionality. This lets you remotely fine-tune your security camera’s field of view (FOV). Focus in on narrow pathways (down to 33°) or expand the camera’s view up to 93° for large areas like backyards or parking lots. These adjustments are made remotely from your Lorex DVR, or even a connected mobile device.
Download the free FLIR Cloud™ app for your mobile device or computer and always have your security system at your fingertips. See what your IP cameras see (or watch recorded playback) whenever you want, from virtually anywhere in the world. This app also features motion-triggered push notification and instant email alert options to help you stay connected to your property at all times.
Keep your property safe around the clock with Lorex’s professional-grade night vision technology. Both sets of HD IP cameras in this security system will help you do just that. They feature excellent night vision ranges up to 140ft / 43m in ambient lighting (and up to 90ft / 27m in total darkness) - so even during the darkest hours of the night, you can be confident that your security cameras will be there for you when you need them most.
The strong exteriors of the LNB3373B and LND3374B IP security cameras featured in Lorex’s HDIP822V security system ensure remarkable protection against vandalism. A rating of IK10 (vandal-proof) means that these security cameras are capable of looking after themselves while they look after you.
Safely use these four HD security cameras inside or outside. Whether in a torrential downpour or a furious snowstorm, these IP66 rated weatherproof security cameras can persevere. They will even continue to operate in extreme temperatures as low as -22°F (-30°C) - so you can count on year-round security coverage that never stops.
Weeks (if not months) of recorded security footage can be safely stored on the dependable 1TB security certified hard drive inside of the NR800. Not only is this HDD designed to be in constant use, it can easily continue to record even while you watch recorded footage. Schedule specific time periods or adapt the NVR to record at a lower resolution to extend available hard drive space. You can also maximize storage space by recording only when movement is detected.
Security NVRs will connect to IP cameras using CAT5 network cables and will store pre-compressed video footage from IP cameras.
Record and capture all the details, don't miss out anything. Full HD resolution with accurate color reproduction brings your recorded video to life.
The hard drives are designed to work in a security environment, including simultaneous recording & playback from various streams.
FLIR Cloud will help simplify and organize your life by keeping track of all your security cameras from anywhere in the world on any iPhone®, iPad® or Android® devices.

Research proves fruitful!
The 8-channel NVR system with varifocal cameras proves worthy of the competition. The free website, cell phone capability and access to local viewing rise above in self-monitoring where others fail to provide notification during an event. Set up was a breeze, too! Lorex definitely lives up to their name in security. I would, and have, recommended them to many.

I love this camera system. As of this writing I have only set up my system to test everything before I install the cameras. All four cameras worked great right out of the box. The NVR is a snap to have up and running. I was not able to download a manual so I contacted tech support and they sent a link to it. I downloaded it without any problems. I'm ready to add three more cameras. I'm happy with my purchase so much I'm going to purchase another system for my daughters house being built now.
Location: Orlando, FL
Overall I give the HDIP822VW system (aka NR 808) 5 stars! The clarity of the HD cameras are amazing. The night vision for the dome version and the bullet version both work great. I'm currently experimenting with the motion sensor recording and it appears its working well too.
All the equipment is very good quality. I especially like the dome cameras as they look and feel professional grade..very sleek looking too! The bullet cameras look super sharp as well and work great.
I've interacted with Tech support several times and they've been very helpful. Their wait-times are usually at least 10mins but they provide a callback option so you don't lose your place in line (without having to stay on the line)... so its super convenient.
The FlirCloud iPhone app has some glitches but overall is not a bad app. May require you to close out and restart often to get an instant connection. Hopefully tech support will address with future updates. The FlirCloud client for Mac works great and I'm finding I'm able to do all my settings & playbacks, etc. thus far through the Mac client vs directly to the NVR.
Note: The only drawback was that one of the bullet cameras night vision did not work out-of-the-box...however, tech and customer service were very helpful and are replacing it asap.

I have purchased several system's from Lorex and have been very happy. This latest HDIP822VW system was awesome. The 4 camera's were the best camera's I've ever worked with for a low cost system like this. They have 3X optical zoom - so after you install them you can zoom them into a particular area without loosing quality. No issues with install - the remote FLIR app works great on the phone to access live and playback.
I would recommend this system for sure!
good and bad. purchased their HD dvr + 4 HD camera system, for installation in a new commercial building. It was proffessionally installed, and was simple with the included
wiring, and cams are all POE- meaning only cat5e to cam locations no seperate power wires or outlets. got CO in january and started moving in and got comcast setup and turned on lorex security system. Tried to install included software on computer, this is where the issues started. our setup disk we recieved merely pointed to flir.com to download flir cloud. called technical support to verify procedure as this did not match documentation sent with our system. Technical support apolgized informed us we were sent an old discontinued nvr unit, and would not function normally with their new cloud software. they offered to remedy by creating a return ticket, have me package up everything and ship it back and they would send me the correct updated unit. this was not an option-- everything was already installed in-wall and hardwired etc... so they offered to help with all the computer setup instead. the techincal support agents were all good and friendly and helpfull. though it took a long time and remote access to get things running -- because our nvr unit was so old and obsolete, and we only have office computers onsite no dedicated monitor for the system. Another issue encountered, there cloud software is not compatible with windows XP. we had to bring a laptop there with windows 7 to complete setup. our NVR unit is also extremely load and buzzes while it is running, very annoying, probably because its and old obsolete unit. however our system is now functioning and camera image quality it pretty good. Strongly recommend if you buy from Lorex, check and make sure they sent you new and up to date items before you procede to install. The techinal support agents are great. thanks

Horrible customer service, in the last two weeks I have call seven times to talk with someone on purchasing this unit. Two times the phone ranged at least 20 minutes no one answered. One time the guy disconnected me and the other put me on hold and never came back. The actions of this company is making me do something I have never done, leave negative review. Further more they have upset me so much with their games I will have my staff post negative reviews on here and everywhere we can on the internet. Stay away from this company

I purchased model # NVR2411T order # L201046 ($809.99). I had Security cam intalled the system december 26 2015 ($784.76). One of the four cameras developed moisture issues and the image is fuzzy. I cleaned it by unswrewing the lens but it didn't work. The DVR cuts off after a few days and has to be reset by turning off the power. I do not live where i installed the system and its frustrating. It did it 3 times in a two week period. Unfortunately for me I bought the system and didnt install it till after the 1 year warranty expired. I called the company with no results. I would appreciate a call or email on how to fix these issues.
We're sorry to hear you are having difficulty with your system. Our customer service and technical support teams were happy to assist you. Should you require further assistance, please call us at 1-888-425-6739. Thank you.

I am very glad to have this system. I'm still going though all it can do, but so far am loving it. I have it hidden away with it connected to a spare monitor via hdmi and a vga cable going to our Epson projector. Love going to split screen and still watching our movie and the cameras at the same time.
The only thing let for me to do is seeing how to use the app on a 2nd smart phone and my pc to see the cameras.
Location: New York
The cameras where very easy to set up. The Flir Cloud app is fantastic.
The IP cameras were automatically recognized seconds after plugging them into the Dvr.The one negative point would be the small hex key security screws can strip easily while tightening.

I had my new DNR300 installed by the Geek Squad. They ran the wires through the attic to the unit in a discrete place. With the experience of installing so many, they were blown away by the picture quality. One of the 4 cameras was effectively DOA. I'm waiting for the replacement to arrive. No concerns with treatment from customer service whatsoever. The were apologetic. I'm expecting everything to be straightened out.
I'm glad I have the system from a solid brand name as LOREX. Passersby are aware of the cams. They serve as a pretty good deterrent. Very handy to check out what's happening via my phone. Overall very please. No regrets.

Well when I received the package on the 30th of September I was pleasantly surprised that they bump up the DVR to the 300 series, but after I plugged it in I could tell right away that something was wrong. The jack that plugs in the network was dead. I call tech support and they said that they would send me a new DVR. I waited a week and never heard anything so I call back they said that they were sorry but nothing had been done with my ticket and they said that they would expedite the ticket, but it would still take a week to ship it to me. Now it is Oct 5th and I still have not heard from them. Now I have to call again to get the same run around. The service sucks!
Thank you for your feedback. Our apologies for the difficulty you experienced. We hope everything is working well for you now.

Well, everything seemed to work pretty much out of the box. However, instead of a NVR200, it looks like a i got a DNR300, so that's good. However, the remote stopped working in the first few hours (actually the remote seems to be working but the unit isnt responding to it - I have been waiting 3 days for tech support to reply. I have high hopes for the system as the image quality and actual NVR interface and app seem to be good. Re: the app, the instructions mention SyncroIP, which I thought stunk, but I got the FlirCloud app and that seems to be much better - very confusing array of apps when one searches for FLIR or Lorex or Digimerge in the app store....)
Thank you for your feedback. Our apologies for the delay. A technical support representative will contact you shortly.
This is a very convenient and hi-tech system. The ability to get the images on a phone is a definite plus. The images are very clear. We are very happy with this purchase.
Purchased this system close to a year ago and the product works great and was easy to install. Recently I had a Hard Drive failure in my device. Lorex tech support sent a replacement NVR to swap out and I am up and running again.
Good product and good response from Tech support on getting the device swapped out quickly.
Location: Phoenix, AZ
I bought a 4-camera system and have installed 2 of the cameras so far and the image quality is outstanding. I am still learning how to set up the recording and remote monitoring but every time I have requested assistance the help desk has been outstanding with quick responses and suggestions, as well as follow up.
Purchased this product in April for a new home install. Upon installation there was no power to cameras. Tech support suggested that a new power supply was needed... It has taken me three weeks waiting for emails just to get to a point where a replacement is supposed to be sent. I still have not received a tracking number... This is supposed to be a "Security" product and it defeats its purpose if you can't get parts shipped quickly to even test the system adequately...let alone if something failed once installed....
Bottom line is Lorex needs to fix their tech support and replacement parts policies and procedures, there's no excuse waiting this long for parts.... Can't rate the product until the parts are sent...
Thank you for your feedback. Our technical support and customer service teams were happy to get this resolved for you. Should require further assistance, please don't hesitate to phone us at 1-888-425-6739.

I ordered this system in Jan. 2015 and installed it in Feb. 2015. System worked great until April when 1 of the cameras went out. Took several emails and calls to finally get a replacement camera sent to me. All was well until Jun. 2015 when another camera went out. Opened up another ticket to get a replacement camera and did the normal troubleshooting to determine that yes it was the camera and that they will setup a RMA and send me a new camera. Opened the ticket on Jun 14 2015 and I still have not received my replacement camera. Messaged them twice and never received a response even tho they said someone will respond to me in 1-2 business days. Finally called up today to see what was going on and apparently since my 90 days are up, I have to send in my faulty camera first, in order to get a replacement. Seems like noone that I spoke with before decided to tell me this bit of news. I will be selling this kit when I get my new camera back as I do not trust it to stay working. Poor customer service. DO NOT BUY
We apologize for the misunderstanding regarding our replacement policy, we?re happy you have received your replacement. If you have any further questions or concerns please contact us at 1-888-425-6739.
Awesome cameras love them.
This is a very go setup have it in my store work very good 1080P is very clear Thanks for making a good NVR

This is a very nice and compact system that is very easy to install. Every thing is in the box. Price is right as well.
Want great surveillance video? Enjoy easy setup and viewing features? You will enjoy this product. Great Value no hassle good quality!!
If you're looking for a top to match security system that is easy to install Look no further. The HD NVR security camera system with 4 HD IP cameras
is truly plug-and-play. Although it may be a little tricky setting up online access it is definitely do able with reading the directions. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking for a high-end entry-level security system.

Location: Howey in the hills, fl
Great product and setting up the cameras and DVR took some work put it was easy to install. Came with 4 100 yard cat 5 cable runs that also provide power to the cameras.
Settin up connections to our Microsoft PC, IPAD and IPhone was difficult because of the IP addresses and router configurations and naming convention for your system I could not figure out. But I worked with LOREX tech support and we had it all configured in about an hour. For first time users I recommend using tech support for this configuration.
Very impressive for the money. The apps work on both Android and iPhone. The setup was real easy too. I would highly recommend this for simple surveillance of your home or small business.

I have had the cameras for about a month now. We use them as nanny cameras and the quality is very good viewing on my iPhone. Very easy cameras to install. I had some minor issues setting up the cameras for viewing on my iPhone and iMac, but technical support was very helpful. If you call technical support during peak hours, the wait time can be lengthy. I called earlier today on a Tuesday and had no wait time. Lorex has multiple applications for use on Mac's. The instructions advised one application but Technical Support advised another application. It can be a bit confusing, but again Technical Support is knowledgeable and had me up an running in no time. I'm using the suggest app, Flir SyncroIP, which is very simple and works great. It would be nice for the app to allow you to view saved recordings from the NVR. Overall, the price is very good and we are pleased with the camera system.

I pre-wired my house for a few outside locations with Cat6 while it was under construction. I have no idea what I was doing but started to research what I could afford and get the best bang for the buck. I bought this system with only the idea I needed 3 maybe 4 cameras. When it arrived it was labeled Flir not Lorex but I have since learned Flir is the company that bought Lorex and is a great name of quality so you are in good hands. Setup was nothing more then plugging everything in and all cameras showed up and great clear quality. Sure you have to mount and adjust the cameras to point in the right direction but that was 2 mins of effort. The system is a true plug n play. Getting to know all what you can do is the trick. My wife loves the idea she can view the perimeter when the dogs bark and not have to get off the couch. She has had security issues in her life and this system is easy for her to use and review. We have it on our iPads and phones and can check on the home out of town or in the house.
I have since made my setup even better. I have learned how to move the system to our family room and not tucked into the closet. Since it is an IP system you can have all your cameras plug into a POE data switch $150. and all you have to do is plug the NVR into any cat5 port in your house and it will find the cameras. I have a 75" TV and we can switch the input button quickly and boom we have the cameras on our big screen. We save our dogs from barking when the pizza guy comes, I'm heading out the door before he gets out of his car.
Best part is what you get for the price is off the charts a screaming deal. You only get 4 ports on the back but is you get an 8 port POE switch you can plug in up to 8 cameras. The system only comes with a 1TB drive and it's the easiest thing to change out. I had 2 old SATA drives 2TB each and popped this in, added a simple cable and now have 4TB of space.
I have now learned so much it's become fun. Cameras only watch and you have to review if you are looking for something so it is up to you if you review. Make sure you setup Motion detection on the right camera or more so it will catch the guy looking over your fence/gate. The review pull down menu shows M for motion and I just click on those and that will show you the activity. Look to Digimerge which is the new owner of Lorex and you will learn about other cameras that can be added. BTW, these are only bullet cameras and have no zoom or PTZ features. On review you can click on camera and draw a square and digital zoom that spot, cool.
Installed the cameras without a problem. Hooked up a monitor to the system and all cameras working. As for the online connection it has been a nightmare. On the phone with support for more than 3 hours two separate days trying to setup. Still don't have resolved as I'm being told it's my Att router that is the issue.
Location: Hollidaysburg, Pa
Shipment arrived quickly, Product was securely packaged. Was pleasantly surprised to find out that the NVR is actually a 8 channel NVR with 4 cameras included. Setup was a little confusing due to multiple references to the Lorex Site, the Flir Site and the Digimerge Site but once I decided to go with the Flir site I was able to get thing up and running. I had to contact tech support for a user account issue and tech support was fantastic, the waiting cue was short and the support technicians were courteous as well as professional.
TIP: Upgrade the system firmware before you do anything else. If you are only looking for the basic features, the firmware that is in it will work but if you are looking for the more advanced features, upgrade it right away.
Product arrived about 15 days after purchase. It was packed very professionally. Easy to follow installation diagrams, made it simple for me to install on my own. Took 3 hours to solo to run all the wires and conceal the way i wanted to. Great high definition picture. For the money spent i couldnt ask for anything more so far. System has been installed about 3 days. I would recommend to friends.
Great product, came as described, easy installation, works well so far.

This product is awesome for the price, easy to hook-up and very user friendly. This is my second security system purchased from Lorex and I see no need to shop anywhere else. the system is self explaining and the pictures are beautiful with 1080p and my HDMI Monitor. Did have a little problem getting DNNS setup, but Tech Support was great and system works the way it is suppose to, could not be happier. You do have to run the Ethernet lines to each camera, did not like the attic, but system is POE so you don't need to run power lines to each camera. Wonderful system.
Item seems to work as claimed, however the idea that the remote apps for Android, iOS will be of any use is FALSE. Simply looking at either app store will show you that none have been updated in ages, iTunes has few reviews, same for Google Play. For an item that clearly states remote access via a Smartphone (one has to wonder if this feature so BOLDLY featured on the website) is driving sales.....IF so don't waste you $ look into other companies that sen to support the apps after the initial release
Incredible resolution! Very easy to setup and use. DDNS setup not so great, I tried making the lorex one and the flir one and can't get either one to work. Went the old fashioned port forwarding way and works great. I have purchased many Lorex systems for friends and family in the past year and I have to say the quality you get for the money you pay is second to none! If I have one issue it is calling in for sales or tech support, the wait times are ridiculous, but everyone who does finally pick up has been a great help in all departments.
Very easy system to install, literally plug the cameras in and you are done. I did setup the system with the cameras on a table for a few days first to make sure they worked ok before installing. The software seems to be ok as well, easy to navigate around in it and find what you need. I haven't tried the DDNS yet so can talk about that. This is my first system and I think its worth the money (especially with all the discounts over Black Friday weekend) and im happy. Only time will tell how the system will hold up but for now all is good.

This is the first time I purchases a security system from Lorex.
I must say that I'm very pleases with my purchase.
I always wanted a better than average security system to protect my home and I think I have found just the unit.
My NVR 2411T system came a couple of days ago and yesterday I installed two of the four 1080p cameras around my home.
The installation went well but was a little time consuming due to the fact that you need to bring the wires into the house.
Other than that the installation went without any major problems.
The instructions that came with the unit are clearly laid out and easy to understand.
Setting up the software on your local network was easy although I have not used the DDNS service away from my home to remotely view the camera output yet.
I hope to try that in the next couple of days once I have the other two cameras up and running.
Some people have complained about the noise from the fan on the unit but my system is running smoothly without too much noise.
I would recommend this system to my friends any day.
I purchased this as an upgrade to my analog system. Resolution is not a clear indication of picture quality as image processing has a lot to do with that. Overall I am pleased with it based on the price payed. Having the DDNS service provided free is a nice feature and the automatic port forward toll was pretty handy. Be aware the firmware on the website is actually older than what shipped on my NVR so double check before proceeding. I don't see an easy way to be able to log into the camera's directly to be able to change settings short of using a POE injector, unless there is no intention to log into the cameras like a traditional IP camera.
I like the mobile apps but wish there was a way to default to specific channels when they are opened. The menus are fairly straight forward but would recommend spending time going through each one to familiarize yourself as a few items are in spots you wouldn't expect.
Mine were branded Flir as opposed to Lorex which I preferred. The eyeball domes are of decent quality and I anticipate will last with the occasional lens wiping. Honeywell has cameras that look identical to these so not sure if these are made in house or?
Make sure you run the cd that is included in the camera boxes as it has links to software and documentation. The mobile apps use the sub stream so play with those settings under the recording tab to get a good balance between quality/bandwidth needs. The far right box under the stream settings must be checked to instruct the system to send the mobile stream out.
I would have liked a bit more settings to play with in regards to picture but overall I am content. The daytime footage is fairly crisp, nothing in the documentation indicates if there is a manual focus adjustment or if it is fixed from the factory. At night it is acceptable with no IR bleed/reflections as it is not a domed housing. There is some noise in the picture I would like to get rid of but the manual doesn't indicate if the gain setting will affect this or not?
I am giving it four stars overall as it is not the level of high end IP cameras but realize I paid less for the whole system what one single pro IP camera would cost.

I bought the system to use outside of my home after a thief had gone through my car while parked in my driveway. If it happens again I'll have something for the police but, chances are, any experienced thief will notice the camera and move along.
I'm having some trouble with the system like Jordan (see previous reviewer) but I won't deduct points because the installer (me) might be the issue and not the equipment. There are so many features to learn about that it's easy to miss things. For example, I hope that you can block out certain areas of a given camera (e.g. only alert if something moves on my driveway, not the road beyond it) but I don't know if I can. The instructions mention a sensitivity setting but I can't find it. If these are problems, hopefully they will be addressed in the next system update.
Like Jordan, I had the problem with the time changing but I figured it out; specifically, find the NTP (network time protocol) setting and move it from -5 hours to -8 for Pacific Standard Time. Anyone outside of EST will need to do this.
Unfortunately I missed the 25% off sale but I got the 15% discount and I really appreciated the free shipping. My system appears to have shipped from their US warehouse but, thankfully, I didn't have to pay any duty upon arrival. UPS once delivered a $400 item to me, with prepaid shipping, and then charged me $100 for their cross-border fees (complete scam!) so not having to face that again was greatly appreciated!

Bought a DNR200 with 4 x 1080p IP cameras. (NVR doesn't actually say Lorex anymore, threw me off a bit. found out FLIR bought out Lorex.) Installation of the hardware was quite simple, hooked up cameras and a monitor and picture showed up automatically. However, system wise, their instructions isn't too helpful. Very detailed but not too accurate. Still having issues setting motion detection and time up. The time keeps changing / reverting to a different time so the recording isn't accurate. Tried to contact them via email, but got a very generic answer. Will try and call next week. However good quality / build for price.

Purchased NVR2411T with 4 Cameras. System arrived on time and it was all that I expected. I setup the system on the desk and ran it for a week to make sure everything worked before climbing the ladder and installing the cameras.
System worked great on the bench, I had all the features setup prior to installation including DDNS, Motion Detection and recording. I made the mistake of upgrading the firmware before I installed the cameras (6-12-13) the firmware changed a couple items on the device interface so the MOTION detection REGION button disappeared from the console interface.
I called tech support they remoted into the system and showed me how to use the HTTP interface to the console where all the features were still there. (note use compatibility mode for this to work - also not documented). I suggest using the HTTP interface for configuration and the system CONSOLE for searching for video/recording.
Network, DDNS etc all setup fine (but I am a geek). I can see how the setup can be a problem for some customers since the instructions are not 100% clear for the novice.
All in all the system is excellent, picture quality is great, night vision is good. Setup was simple all in all.
Note: Fan is loud so choose your location carefully.
Great product, very simple tu configure. Very nice pictures quality.

Purchased the FLIR/Lorex NVR DNR200 Series w/ 4 PoE cameras...found the installation instructions copious, specific, but not exactly right...after getting help from 3 others with various networking knowledge, I had to call customer support. Three calls later, my system is up and working, but cannot display on my full HD TV which is where I wanted to display the output. No one seems to know why. Or what changes could be made to make it work.
On my 2 pcs -- one wired, one wireless, all is well. Very pleased with the picture, etc.
However, the setup of the cameras cannot be saved on exit (why does this feature not exist?) and the process for recording and playback and other features of the software are obscure.
I am not a security geek, so maybe this is sop for security software, but user-friendly, NOT.
If I were to restart this whole process, I would have a Lorex professional install everything, and explain how to use the features.
The system showed up on time.It was simple to hook up.The software is a little over my head,may need help from a support geek.The picture is clear but the night vision could be a little better.All in all I like the system a lot better than my wireless system,no cameras loosing the signals.The support techs take a while to get to your call,must be a lot of other people that have a hard time getting the software down.System works great, happy with it.

After installing this system in our branch office, I found it to be very easy to install and setup out of the box. The options, settings and configuration ability is excellent and everything can be handled remotely. I give this system an excellent rating. If we install a system in another branch, this will be the system we purchase.
I bought this system for my parents. They love it. It has been used to monitor the front door, and has helped us catch a criminal.
We have also used it at times as a baby monitor when my neices and nephews are visiting. They love it and I love that it is easy for them to use.

Very quick and easy to set up. Purchased through the Lorex site and the shipping was fast! Remote setup and viewing from Android, Apple and PC works great. Highly recommend it.

Delivery was quick, set up was easy and the system is working very well. Not currently using remote viewing feature at this time. Impressed with the quality of the picture.
The system is a great improvement over an old system I replaced it with, was not satisfied with customer support when I wrote a ticket.
Amazing product. Very nice HD video recording and display. Simple setup and good instructions. The only major issue that needs improvements on is the zoom feature. It does not work very well it lacks clarity on the pictures. Overall great product for the money spent.

When I received the system, I thought they sent me the wrong one. I ordered a Lorex HD NVR security camera system with 4 HD IP cameras. The shipping carton showed that it was shipped from Lorex, but nowhere on the cameras or the DVR did it say "Lorex" brand. Instead it had a brand name of "FLIR". I researched it on the internet and found that "FLIR" had acquired "Lorex" so they apparently are putting the "FLIR" logo on their products now. One of the four HD cameras that I received doesn't display color properly. Even in bright sunlight, green grass looks pink and all other colors are way off. I tried this camera on the other ports of the DVR with the other network cables that were supplied and it still looks the same. The three other cameras are fine. Obviously I have a defective camera. I created a "Ticket" on the Lorex website three days ago and haven't got a reply yet. I'll give it another day or two then give them a phone call if I don't hear anything before. If I can get Lorex to replace the defective camera I think this is a good system.

Delivery was quick, set up was easy and the system is working very well. I should have bought and set this up years ago!

Even though when I placed my order, the order never got to process correctly; I had to call in and my issue was resolved right away even thought it took 20 min to get someone on the line. I got the system 4 days later and I was able to set the with no problems. The resolution is great, the features are also great. If you plan on buying this system and upgrading to more cameras don't "Its not supported". Which makes totally no sense, since the 4 ch NVR is the same as the 8 ch NVR system. There should be a firmware difference between one an the other to enable more cameras to connect to the NVR making this the reason why I am only giving it 4 stars. I also did not like the fact that when I opened the box the NVR had a manufacturing date of Jan 2013 (a year 1/2 later).

Price was very good. Product shipped quickly and in good condition. The cameras appear to be of very high quality construction and the NVR is solid as well. Mounted the cameras on steel single gang box (blank) covers and mounted the covers to the single gang LV boxes that were pre-installed in my soffit. Installation was relatively easy however I have been unable to get the cameras to connect to the NVR yet. Going to install the latest firmware tonight and see what happens. If that doesn't work, I will call the Lorex tech support line and test their skills!
just bought it hasn't arrived yet. but does anyone know if we can put a microphone on it? at the back it shows like a bnc tupe mic but i called lorex and they dont' even sell a mic for this nvr?
Record Time Question:
Does anyone know how much récord time you get with 1080p and or 720p with standard 1TB HDD Thanks?

My HD cameras look and work fantastic. I am pleased with the quick shipment and quality of Lorex FULL HD poe IP Cameras. Also, the ITB of hard drive space is great.

Very quick delivery and super easy installation. It took me few hours to find the right spots for the cameras and run 4 network cables but on NVR setup / IP address / 4 cameras / and some basic settings I spent no more than 30 minutes. After 2 days one of the cameras started to stream blurry picture ( during the day and also in night vision) but Lorex / Flir customer support solved the problem by sending me camera replacement!! VERY NICE!
The only problem I found is the password length. Using web interface or Flir SyncroIP I could setup password limited only to 8 characters... but using Flir SyncroIP app for Iphone I managed to setup longer password :)

i bought this LOREX NVR2411T but they sent me a different brand and model?? it's call FLIR model: DNR204P1. WHY????
does everyone's camera came with power supply? coz i don't see anybody complaint about it.
my 4 cameras don't come with power supply, really??? $899 a set with no power supply? that's ridiculous!!!!!
Dear Ellen, the IP cameras that you ordered are PoE(Power over Ethernet) cameras. They don't require a separate power supply - just plug them into the NVR and they will work. Regards. Lorex
I purchased the LNR182C6 (8 port NVR with 6 HD IP Cameras) system. After mounting the cameras and running the CAT 5 cabling, this system is pretty simple to setup. As for the 1080p video quality, it's decent, even at night. That being said, the digital zoom option for each camera is poor in my opinion. The objects being viewed (zoomed in) in that mode appear blotchy and unrecognizable. The cameras did not come with a sealing gasket for mounting which could lead to moisture issues. The NVR is pretty easy to configure, though I found a few bugs during testing and setup. I am hoping for a firmware update to be released and keeping my fingers crossed that it will fix a few issues. I would have given this system 5 stars, but because of the poor digital zoom quality (guys this needs work) and a "buggy" NVR I am giving it 4 stars, which is not that bad.

I purchased the NVR from Lorex for a great price. Very satisfied with the performance and functionality of the system. I would highly recommend purchasing this product
Location: Whittier, California
My Lorex NVR works great and the cameras are as good as Blu-ray to be honest it's the best I've seen for security cameras and the installation using windows 7 was a breeze. I have 3 of the HD 1080p cameras and I will be adding on with a fourth. This has been a real wonderful way of providing my family with the security they deserve. The customer service was great when I needed a few questions asked but the installation of the windows client went smoothly using the software live view.

Finally got around to ordering another POE camera to trick out my monitoring system to 4 cameras. These POE cameras are really easy to install. I just wish they had PTZ (pan tilt zoom) cameras that were POE. Thanks Lorex!

The system is a great improvement over an old system I replaced it with, Excellent quality.

Just started using product, camera clarity is great with digital zoom you can identify objects at a distance. A little tricky on setup with directions, but I managed. So far all in all very satisfied and would recommend over other systems I have seen.

I had been looking at video security systems for my home for about a year. I spent the time educating myself on the different features offered by various manufacturers. I had narrowed my selection to the Lorex LNR 300, eight camera, 1080p POE, system but the price was too high for my budget. I eventually bought the LVR200 from Lorex at a discounted price. It came with 4 bullet cameras. I installed the system myself, crawling around in the attic wasn't much fun but I'm thrilled with the results. I added an additional 2TB disk drive which was a snap, to give me 3TB of recording space. I did have issues trying to get the web access to work. I have 2 routers which complicates the matter. I tried everything to get it to work, no joy, so I call tech support. After being on hold for an hour, I finally got connected to a real sharp techie that took control of PC, logged into my routers and got it configured perfectly. I can now access my cameras from anywhere. I give this system 5 Stars+, the cameras are plug-n-play, the menu system is intuitive and easy to use, the camera clarity is good, and the system setup is extremely flexible. I was concerned that other reviews mentioned excessive fan noise but I just don't see it, I don't even hear the fan. Highly recommend !!
I recently purchased this DVR200 HD system which was on time. The video is very crisp and clear and the system was fairly easy to install, even for a non technical home owner. Good night vision quality. I find that the motion detection is a little bit too sensitive.

I have not installed it yet but was setting it up first. I had some technical issues and called tech support. It took a long time to get through but once through Lorex has a knowledgeable staff to assist. Courteous and helpful. From initial assessment, the product seems to work well and picture clarity is very good.
Delivery was quick, set up was easy and the system is working very well. Not currently using remote viewing feature at this time. If installing wiring through PVC tubing make sure ethernet wires are reconnected in the correct order/sequence.
