I ordered this system (new) and it took 10 days to receive it. The NVR first recognized the cameras, then blacked out and no longer able to search for these cameras. I called tech support, which was helpful and approved for a replacement, and been told I'd receive the system in the next 3 days since I'm close to their distribution center. It has been 16 days, and I haven't received anything. I'm looking for forward for different system from another provider.

Our apologies for the longer than usual wait. We are happy to have resolved this for you and hope the replacement is working well.

So first piece is the DVR is really noisy. So noisy I ended up moving it into the garage. Took star time and work, no reason this should be that loud.

LAN access works okay. However, trying to connect when I'm not at home has not worked. Tried everything tip offered by Loren. Nothing has worked...

DVR has worked. Playback works and created several .dav files to test... Even caught a neighbor picking all my apples off our apple tree. Too funny!

So my fist update is 3 stars, will update agin in a few months...

Upon arrival checking for damage the items appeared to be packaged well enough to withstand any deliveries by gorillas. The equipment seemed to be well made. Running the Cat5e for the POE was somewhat daunting but managed. There are only 2 areas that could be improved. 1. The 60 ft of cable that comes with each camera, We should be able to order the length we need and then pay according to any lengths over 60ft. The DDNS service is still not working for me, I am now reading that it is not compatible with Chrome or Edge, whether this is still valid or not I'm not sure. Awaiting a call from support to help me through the DDNS part.I would recommend this system.

System was straight forward and having some knowledge on security system helps with the install, however, one of the IP cams stopped working after one day of use. I did the basic troubleshooting and determined the camera is defective. I've called technical support twice and waited almost an hour until I gave up. Hoping maybe when they read this review they will consider hiring more staff to answer phones and expedite replacing defective products.

Thank you for your feedback. Our apologies for the longer than usual wait time. We hope the replacement is working well for you.

I installed this myself on a weekend. Picture quality is excellent, night vision is great for what i need. The IP interface through the NVR is really user friendly. 4 cameras and about 9 days of 24/7 recording in 2TB HDD. Would recommend to others for entry level IP cameras.

I bought this system to replace an existing 4 camera NVR system. My previous system was in use for only 18 months before I decided it just wasn't cutting it. The remote viewing software was horrible, and tech support was even worse. I won't mention the maker but it ends in "nn".
Lorex has a much superior product for nearly the same money. The remote software for the Android is light years ahead of the previous system. It not perfect, but trust me, is is very usable and reliable.
I read some other reviews on this system that complained that the NVR was noisey. True, but it has two system fans that keeps the unit at room temperature. This is an important feature because heat kills. I believe the NVR system should last a long time just for this fact.
The recorder has many more desirable features compared to my first unit, I only wish there was a printed manual included. I am satisfied that I finally bought a good reliable system.

The Lorex NVR is one of the easiest and most self-explanatory NVR I have setup ever and configure. Well-written instructions and easy to follow.
After setup and configuration, I was very satisfied with the video quality and in day and night mode. I am very impressed with FLIR cloud software.
If you are on the market for full solution NVR, I will recommend Lorex HD NVR Surveillance System.

I purchased a kit P/N LNR84W which comes with a LNR400 NVR and 4 cameras P/N LND3374B.

The sound level of this unit alone makes it defective.
I was told that it makes about as much noise as a computer by lorex tech support so I did some measurements.
My tower computer with 5 fans has a sound output of 38 dBA at 6 inches away, as measured by a certified meter.
The sound level of the NVR400 is 54 dBA at 1 foot away. This actually makes it almost 4 times as loud as my computer.

Can you imagine that much noise coming from a computer.

Oh and by the way Lorex does not provide or guarantee any acceptable sound levels.

Buyer beware. I hope this review get posted so that others are warned if sound levels are a concern for you.

Thank you for your feedback. We're sorry to hear your NVR is creating so much noise. Please contact our technical support team so they can determine if it needs to be replaced under warranty. Tech support can be reached Monday to Saturday, 9am to 10pm EST at 1-877-755-6739.

I would never buy another product made by Lorex. The machine was so loud that we can't have it anywhere but in a closet in the guest room or you have a constant fan noise that is equivalent to a window a/c unit. They offered to replace the system with one that was worth half of what I paid and only offered me a $50 refund. I have still yet to hear from them about this issue and it's been 8 months!!!!

We're sorry to hear you are not happy with the fan noise. We hope the replacement is working well for you now.

I purchased this unit on recommendation of security company who did a professional installation for me. The installation and setup only took a couple hours and so far everything has worked exactly as I expected. Camera quality is very good. The interface can be a bit confusing at first, but after spending some time with it I figured everything out. Reading some instructions would have helped, but I'm a guy so you know...

Remote monitoring is great and the night vision also works very well.

My out of the box, initial install review is five stars as it's everything I expected.

I ordered this product and received it in time. However, one camera did not work. I called the tech support and assigned an RMA number to get the replacement. So far I have not received any information how to exchange the camera. I called customer service twice and the representative said she sent an email to the warehouse to expedite the process. So frustrated with this order.

Thank you for your feedback. Our apologies for any difficulty you experienced. We are happy to have resolved this for you.

Product is pretty straight forward. Do yourself a favor an test camera before installing. Also 60ft cable in a ranch to the basement from the attic isn't enough cable. I bought cat 6e and made custom cables for better reach and quality. One of the cameraS were inoperable after installing and worked with lorex customer service for replacement. You get what you see and for the price the quality is good. Operating system on laptop is difficult to understand with so many settings and options.

Product is poor quality. Hard drive failure after 15 months. No warranty from WD or Lorex. Camera and remote features work well but recording stopped when hard drive was full and did not operate as advertised even though it was set up to write over - would not record.

Build quality is good, images are good, default setup is easy plug-n-play BUT

EPIC FAIL - motion detection stopped working on all four cameras and missed a theft :(

I installed four cameras October 2015 and spent many hours of tweaking so that motion alarm from snow, rain, leaves and shadows was minimal (definitely not zero) but human activity was logged and notified through my phone. Four months later, my wife noticed that something was missing from our back yard. Luckily, she noticed soon enough that we still had footage on the NVR - I checked and sure enough, someone had walked right into our yard in view of three cameras, and not one had logged a motion event.

I checked the settings and they were as I had left them. I increased the Sensitivity - nothing. Reduced the Threshold - nothing. I reset the NVR to Factory Default, rebooted many times, tried absolutely everything I could think of and nothing worked - none of the cameras would detect any motion. I spent three evenings on the phone with Lorex Tech Support and finally had to pull a cable from my office to the utility room to connect my computer directly to the NVR. Only after logging into each camera individually and resetting to Default did they start detecting motion again.

Tech Support’s response when I asked for why it happened? Well, sometimes things break and need to be reset. UNACCEPTABLE! They assured me that it was “very unlikely” to happen again but how can I believe that when they have no idea what happened? It’s the same NVR, same camera firmware.

Makes me wonder how many other thefts have gone undetected because a Lorex camera stopped doing its job. Buyer beware.

Thank you for your feedback. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. Should you require further assistance, please call 1-877-755-6739.

The 1st time I tried to call customer service after I purchased the system I sat on hold for 1 hour, I eventually hung up. I tried 3 other times over several days with the same result. So, I sent and email with my concern. It took 30 days to get a response. I was totally disappointed with that process and was very concerned after spending 1,800.00 on a system from Lorex.
With that said, after I installed the system I was very impressed with it. The install was as simple as plug and play. The loading of the App to my phone was easy and to my PC as well. If the system gives me great service I would say "money well spent". I did make 1 call to the tech support for a simple issue and they were great. The hold time was short and the Tech was very knowledgeable.
If they fix the customer service issue, I would say, you can't go wrong with the products.

I've had the system for almost a month. The actual installation took me some time since I had to run Cat5 wires through my attic. The NRV is a bit noisy, but I keep it in a closet and can't hear it in the house. At the moment everything is working just fine, very happy with the daylight picture quality. The night vision is also good. There's a large number of options in the setting menu, so I am still adjusting them (motion sensitivity, recording schedule etc.) All in all, I am satisfied with the system. In fact, since the NRV handles 8 cameras, I might buy another indoor camera from Lorex.

Excellent system with very superb quality image HD and easy to set up. Once cameras were connected to NVR it is as a breeze to navigate either from mobile platform or tv monitor. But the only reason this is not getting 5 stars it's because I wish support center would be a lil more knowledgeable about their product. I had to send back my first original receiver( 100% perfect condition) because I wasn't getting any signal to tv, so lorex decided to replace it.. After waiting for second receiver I did some extensive reading and all we had to do was set resolution on receiver to 1920x1080p and wallah signal on monitor was on. I just Dont know why technical support couldn't tell me that and all they said was that I had a bad hdmi output and receiver no good...so please before you try to send back new receiver to get replace do yourself a favor and connect a vga cable and change resolution to work on tv.
I would definitely recommend this HD system, best thing ever for a good peace of mind...

I received my unit a couple weeks ago and attempted to install the cameras. There was an error on the setup screen when I tried to configure it. I called tech support and they helped me through the issue and are shipping me a new unit. I've worked with them in the past and they are always helpful. I know that I will enjoy the new NVR when it is installed.

The LNR4080 system was so easy to install. It's plug and play! When it initially boots up it is quite annoying to hear the "beeping" if not all cameras are installed into each port, but it is very easy to disable. The picture is great during the day and the picture is great during the night. Overall, I would recommend this NVR system.

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 like these cameras. I bought a series 400 system last March and now decided I needed two more cameras. These look exactly like the cameras that came with the system but they have a wider angle and they seem to have better resolution. Daytime looks great and night is better than I expected. Will get more of these to replace existing or to expand system.

Just finished installing the LNR84W 1080P camera system at my house. Purchase was spurred by a recent "keying" incident on my son's "1 month old" new car, right in our driveway between 1 and 7 am.

Only installed 3 of the 4 cameras supplied since this gave me full view of my driveway and walkway to my front door. The cameras were easy to install. It took me about 5 hours only because of all the "crap" I had in my garage that impeded my access to the camera's Ethernet cable connection. A clear, accessible garage would have reduced installation time to less than half of what I spent. Make sure you have a good 3/4" concrete drill bit and external (1") electrical conduit and fittings

The PoE cables are a godsend and I cannot imagine using any other kind of cable/power connection! These 1 step power and transmission cables should be the standard in these kind of installations, especially in a retro-fit such as mine where supplying individual power to each camera would have been a really inconvenient pain in the ass! This feature alone is worth the price of the Lorex system and puts it above all other competitors. I tested the cameras before installation (as recommended) and they worked just as well after the installation. Daylight picture is very clear and I am pleasantly surprised at the night time picture quality, even in total darkness.

The promotional material and the Lorex website videos on picture quality are accurate.

Programming was also a snap. I did have a couple of minor glitches with setting up the proper password but I think this was due to my daughter setting up her mobile link before I had a chance to read through the literature and set-up/change the temporary passwords. In any event, a couple of phone calls to the very knowledgeable tech support staff got me up and running at home, on my cell and at my office. E-mail alerts and ability to control the recording from my cell phone are a few of the features which make this product stand out from the rest

I highly recommend this system and fall short of giving it a perfect 5 star rating due to the following minor quibbles:

- the 4 cameras came with 4 - 60ft lengths of Ethernet cable. Unfortunately there is always one camera that is farther away and this was the case with me. Consequently I had to buy a 100 ft Ethernet Cat5e patch cord ($20) when I only needed about 75-80ft. I would suggest that Lorex include at least a single longer cable in this package or ideally 2 - 60ft, 1 -75ft and 1 -100ft lengths. However as the cables are regular Cat5e or Cat6, they are readily available at a very reasonable cost.

- my other irritation is that I only used (and needed) 3 cameras to cover the area of concern. I would like to install the 4th camera on my rear house wall to monitor my backyard but this would require another external conduit to house the cable connection. I called and was told there is no compatible wireless camera that would work with the LNR84W system. A wireless camera would make installation a snap in this particular application and be more cosmetically pleasing. A wireless camera option, even at the cost of a lower resolution output, would have been greatly appreciated.

- as I currently have only 3 of the 4 cameras activated, my monitor has a blank lower corner quadrant when the system is set up to "view all cameras." Surely Lorex could provide a software patch to their system that would allow one to maximize the monitor screen for the actual # of cameras on the system if one wants to view all cameras at once.

As I stated, minor issues that will in no way prevent me from recommending this system to any other user.

Works great.
I have setup quite a few units over the years, this was my first Lorex and I am quite happy with it.
Unlike some other products on the market this is able to record more than one camera in HD.
I use the Android app at least once a day to check on a remote location.
The Flir cloud does save some networking steps and works fine, however for more speed I setup port forwarding on my router and that makes the app even better!
I added a motorized zoom camera to my setup, neat!!

After receiving a replacement PoE switch and NVR, the system works fine. For some reason the times keep changing on the cameras even after I set it and reboot the system.

Its a descent system for the price.

I needed a night vision camera that I would not want to control remotely. It is a nice looking camera with an excellent 1080P picture. Picture quality is superb during normal light and after it gets dark the IR quality is awesome as well. Knowing what to expect with an IR camera I am very pleased with is performance and compatibility with my 400 series NVR.

Bought a LNR320 with 6 cameras, 5 indoor, 1 outdoor. All was easy to put in, comes up real well and setup is real cut & dry. After a year the LNR320 just died, not the HD it wouldn't boot anymore. Called Tech Support that was good, but we were beyond the warranty. So seemed better to buy a new controller than have it repaired.

My system was purchased in July, but I had a delay installing until October. When put up the 5 cameras, only 4/5 of five worked. When I informed Lorex that one of the cameras did not power up and work, they immediately sent me a replacement with instructions on how to return the non functioning camera. I give them very high marks for customer service and standing behind their product.

Very pleased with the product very easy to install. I initially had a problem with the app- I don't know how it's even possible but I downloaded an android app ? on my Apple iPhone. Anyway, it was the wrong App- directions should have been clearer. So, it was 1AM in morning and I couldn't connect the app with the devices to view pictures. Spent couple hours frustrated and angry and was all set to write a lousy review. called Lorex support in the morning- they opened at 9am and a very competent tech solved my issue in under a minute- downloaded correct app and worked as promised- so my advice is to check your platform and dowloAd the correct app - apparently there are a few- I've been using for two weeks now, works great, great picture

Happy with most of the system. Very disappointed in the limited coverage of the cameras. They don't cover nearly enough area the way they should. I have to use 3 cameras to get the coverage of 1 other camera system that I'm using.

Also didn't work very well when using the QR code to get the system setup to work with the app.

Had to do the extensive port forwarding and DDNS setup to get the app to see what is actually happening without a 30-second delay. Now it's 2-3 seconds behind reality.

Not overly impressed for the price and the time involved to get everything setup.

I've had the system for almost a month now and to be honest it was more feature rich than I originally thought. I like the scheduling and sensitivity options for the cameras and recording. I like that my laptop, tablet and iphone all can session in and get events and monitor. I also like the email options for sending snapshots triggered by motion detection and video loss. I have two minor things I'd like added, both of which tech support(which has been pretty good to work with) agreed should be added. First, cable disconnect of the camera should be logged as an event and put in the log, and optionally email sent. The second is to have all events, such as motion detect optionally logged so you can see it in the log if email is down or you don't want a flood of emails.

The system appears to be working now after I had to call technical support.

The manual that i had to download from the Lorex web site did not have the latest information.
1) Setting up e-mail notification per the manual does not work, even if your using the Lorex server. Tech support had to take me thru the gmail setup process. Don't try this on your own.

2) Setting up remote access from a PC or MAC also does not work without some helpful tips from tech support. My font size was set to large and therefore I could not see the OK button to continue the setup. Also the Login screen looks exactly like the NVR login screen except you use a different default password.

3) Software seems to be a bit buggy. It changed my camera names all by itself. You have to login every few minutes. The default password was changed somehow, not sure how I did that.

4) This unit is so noisy when running due to the power supply fan that you have to put it somewhere away from any people. You can easily hear it running from 50 feet away. It is the loudest cooling fan I have ever heard. It really needs to be corrected. This alone makes me want to sent the unit back. I am looking for a place to put the unit and trying to add some sound absorbing material around it to keep the noise level acceptable. This is very poor design, in my opinion. I hope Lorex will develop a repair kit. I would pay extra for it.

5) The remote access software for a PC or MAC looks completely different than the software that is displayed from the unit itself. I am not sure yet if you can change all features remotely rather than hooking a monitor up to the unit to make changes.

I hope the unit works without any problems.

This is a good system that gives me everything I want in a home security system. I added additional cameras and that worked well. Not sure of the 1080 P claim. Does not look near as good as I thought they would but they are plenty clear enough to be able to identify someone if necessary. All in all very happy

Great camera system with 4 1080pish cameras upgrade-able to 8. I wouldn't call them 1080p as my Sony camcorder is 1080p and the quality is much higher. Having said that for the price you cant beat these for quality both night and day. I got this back in march and ran into a few minor issues with the cams. 1 of them had a minor flicker every second or so that started in september. Another cam was not in focus out of the box but it wasnt too bad. But the flicker bugged me so a called Lorex to get both of them fixed. Great customer support. Guy on phone took my issue down and said i would have to replace them. A few options at this point. Best option is pay $150 up front and they will send them out to you first then you return the bad cams back in the box and when they get them you get you $150 back. Easy. Option 2 is Vice versa but you don't have to pay the $150. That option is the longest to get your new cameras. Option 3 which i did is go to the warehouse in Markham and they changed them there on the spot. This is the fastest option but if the cams are not in stock you will have to wait for them to be shipped to you. This option if anything will cut the time you get your new cams by half if you take option 2. All in all im very happy with the product and customer service i received at the warehouse and on the phone. I know there is a lot of mixed feelings about Lorex customer service but i think its because a lot of people don't know how to set the cameras up correctly. I hope this helps. I would recommend this system to my friends especially at this price. Similar systems sell for double.

All in all a very nice system.. PoE are the way to go for established homes - running Cat 5 cable is easy compared to running power lines. Fairly simple set up, however the documentation is a little weak. Customer Service was good - I had one overseas helper and on a second (unrelated) call I had a state-side helper.

Spend time while waiting for product to arrive by deciding where to locate your NVR/DVR and then run your own Cat % cable (I did not used the provided cable with the cameras). When product shows up, pop in the cameras, connect the wires, and flip the switch. You are in business. Recording is instant. I was able to get the FLIR cloud and email stuff set up relatively easily. So far I am happy with the system, although I am still tweaking the Alert Sensitivity and Threshold settings....

Quality of images is excellent. Night vision picks up spiders, gnats, and all the no-see-ums.

Four stars for only sending 60' of cable per camera (should be 100') and clunky documentation / software.

I bought a LNR341 camera system and so far I am very pleased with it. Most importantly the technical support is easy to contact and I can understand, if you know what I mean. I had a problem initially getting the remote telephone app to work properly and got an emailed updated version and it works! I give it 4 out of 5 stars because no playback on the phone app but everything else works like a charm. The motion sensor notifies me via email, with pic, of any movement and is very sensitive unless its tweeked. I like the system and the awesome technical support. Btw, do not buy Laview brand because technical support will not respond to you if you call too many times.

Physical installation was a breeze. The cameras provide excellent coverage and quality of picture. Night vision was also impressive. Its a very good system and expandable to 8 cameras. Some hardware was missing so I suspect i received an "open box" or "return item". So why only 3 stars ? Simple....customer support and service. Submitting tickets is a futile endeavor.No one READS the entire issue. Rather they key in on a buzz word or two and provide a cut and paste response. Technical manual does not match the unit software. Menus are extremely difficult to navigate. Customer service hours are short and inconvenient for most. Technical support is there but very long wait times for service. 20 minutes or longer listening to horrible music.

NO REPLACEMENT!! Why? waranty on original unit is 12 months so NO REPLACEMENT. Seams clear there is a manufacturing defect and I did not have one unit last more than 8 months before failure. Exceptions should be made with this kind of repeated failure. No one at LOREX is willing to make any consessions even considering the circumstances. I now have to replace my whold system because LOREX IS INCOMPATABLE WITH OTHER SYSTEMS INCLUDING THEIR CAMERAS. Will never purchase LOREX again. 0*

For Android users that have Lorex NetHD and have upgraded their device to the latest release of Android, be aware that there is a patch available (Lorex_netHD_Stratus.apk). Apparently, FLIR has chosen to use a patch which requires you to contact them to get and install this patch. After I have done this, the Android phone now is able to connect with my system. This was a long process with their technical support, so be prepared to stay on the phone for a while. Hopefully, FLIR will soon release a new version for the NetHD users (perhaps they can respond to this review). I'm now up and running, but still fee that this should be done via normal updates to Android devices, rather than require a special call to their support line.

Ordered from Lorex webstore, Fast shipping time. No brokerage fees from UPS which is a plus because it was shipped from the U.S.. Easy to setup and very sharp images. Yes the fan is a little loud but it's ok because it's blowing all the warm air out of the NVR. Used the QR code to setup up on iPhone and was viewing live video within minutes. Flawless operation of cameras and unit.

I got this same model from Costco for 800. The initial impression is that the cameras are taking good, clear video. It automatically switches from color to black/white based on the lighting. These are IP-cameras and a network cable is all you need to get the camera connected up. Power is provided to the camera via the network cable (PPOE). There is no separate power cable. So that is a huge headache reliever. It is motion-detection activation, and has good night vision. The set up is fairly straight-forward: - connect the cameras to the NVR using regular cat5 network cables. - plugin the mouse - connect the NVR to your TV or a regular monitor - connect the NVr to power and turn it on. - download the mobile app to your mobile devices and add the NVR device in by scanning its bar code - start the live view on your mobile device to see what the camera sees. - (run more settings configuration as needed on the TV/monitor). Cons - it is noisy! the constant humming noise from its fan is quite loud. I placed it in the garage - The FLIR cloud app could be more modern -The support - i Opened a ticket with support for two reasons: One Camera was missing 2 Allan set screws and the Dynamic DNS (after two weeks, DNS record was not created) Both tickets were closed without even talking to me or resolution. I would still buy again this camera!

Well packaged, everything arrived in great shape, hardest part is running the cables, you need a good sized drill bit to create the hole to pass the plugs through unless you are doing your own wiring and putting the plugs on yourself. Setup was really quick and I was watching the feeds on the iPhone and iPad in minutes, really well thought out design. The camera image quality is great in day, the night vision distance is pretty good and clear enough to see most of the areas being covered. The NVR documentation could be a little more detailed, it seems to assume you know what they are thinking when they wrote it. Email Alerts took me the most time to figure out. The only way to get it to work was to set up Ddns to their servers. A little more documentation on doing this would be good, otherwise you need to know about port forwarding and how to set up a ddns, the whole thing they were trying to get around with the cloud connectivity. So far, pleased with the product and the general ease of setting it up and the range of features on the nvr.

So far I really like this set up. It is very easy to install due to just needing to run cat5e cable for the power and signal. 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. The NVR is a little loud so take that into consideration when installing.

Got the set with 4 bullets (and 2 extra domes) about a year ago. Hardware setup cannot get easier with one cable to each camera. NVR setup was easy if you want to do the basic things. It gets more technical if you want to setup motion capture, email alert and such. Streaming to computer and phone works well, but I do think the iPhone app could use some update (the GUI looks like '90s...). Otherwise, the app does work for remote live streaming and even remote playback.

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 purchased this system about two months ago and am thrilled with it. Was very easy to set up. Basically just plug and play. The camera quality is excellent during the day and pretty good at night depending on distance. I use the cameras to keep watch of the outside areas of my business. I have one camera about 100 feet away mounted on a security light pole and it works great! Playback of the video feed works great but you do have to download the manual for the recorder as none are included. After seeing how well the system worked during its first month I ordered two more cameras for a total of 6.

Some people have complained about how loud the cooling fan is but I have it an office where my computer is and can't hear it over my desktop PC fan. It is about as loud as as most laptops that I've ever heard.

Question do I need Ethernet to use this product. Can I just connect the 4 camaras to the NVR and thats it?

thanks for help !!!

Thank you for your question - you do not need to use the Ethernet cable unless you plan to add more cameras or if you want to view remotely.

Flawless!!! This is exactly what I was looking for. Easy installation and set up. Really happy with the system. I am not sure what everyone else was talking about when they said the fan was loud. No more louder than a computer fan. I would recommend this system to anyone without a doubt. A++

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.

The NVR is ok. First one died in 4 months. Replacement came in 3 weeks which is not up to my expectation. Cameras are good. Easy to set up. The big disappointment was the Android app for lollypop. Please fix it.

Our team is working on updating the Android app. We are expecting it to be available in the Google Play Store within the next 4 weeks. Our apologies for the delay.

Fan is a bit loud, but not an issue if mounted in a closet. I chose to have my home prewired with cat5e because I knew I would install a camera system on my own, the builder wanted $500 p/camera. The system I purchased was very cost effective in comparison. I am very satisfied with the resolution, but the interface is not easy to use for setup/configuration. I am still trying to get it setup for optimal results. My system came with ample cat5e cables, but 3 of them did not work, which was not an issue for me as I had my home wired by the builder, but I thought I would re-purpose the included cat5e for another project, again only 3 in the bundle worked. I purchased through Costco, which included a total of 6 cameras (4 bullets and 2 dome) and a 8 channel 2TB NVR. The bullet cameras work much better than the dome version in terms of resolution. I want to expand the system to use all 8 channels, but still need to figure out which Lorex cameras will work with my product. The android app is very difficult to use, all of the cameras default to a lower resolution (even when on Comcast Blast wifi, but can be changed in the app; however, everytime you close the app and reopen you must reset the resolution so it comes in at 1080p. I am sure it is a setting issue, and I need to call the support line, but have not had the time or patience to do so. Overall I am pleased with the product, and my main reason for purchase was value. I look forward to getting it completely configured for my particular application.

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 recently installed my Lorex 16-channel system with 13 cameras attached and it was a relatively painless set up. The most difficult part was running the wiring for the cameras but that process fell only on the challenges of the premises. I'm very thankful for the 100ft of wire which was included with each camera. Quick note about the POE cameras for the NVR: easy to install and even more so to adjust with that SINGLE ring and I don't miss the additional cable for power. Software set up was straightforward and everything came together nicely without issue. My only disappointment was with the output from the RCA port...I wish it was more user definable with respect to screen configurations. I could only hope that a future firmware update would sort that problem as well as accommodate as many screen configurations from the HDMI/VGA port as can be found in the client software. Besides all else, the system works very well and the resolution is superb. The Stratus apps for the iOS devices set up seamlessly with the QR code approach and the client software for both Mac & PC set up just as easily with manual input. In all, my expectations were exceeded and I would recommend this system without thinking twice about it.

The quality of the cameras is excellent. I am truly happy with my purchase say for a few notes below:

1.) The DVR has a fan that for some reason has to be constantly running and it's rather loud. Because of this I decided to install it in the garage but had to run the cables to it from the TV (meaning an HDMI, Ethernet, USB Extender, and a separate RF extension cable to be able to control it via remote from a different room). I honestly don't understand why such a system would require such a loud fan to be running 100% of the time.

2.) The user interface is not that easy to use. You must really read the 120+ page manual or call for help, but intuitive it definitely is not. Same goes for the computer or mobile device app.

3.) Two of the 100' POE cables that came are damaged. I called Lorex who said they would ship me a couple of new ones but they have yet to arrive a week after my call.

4.) I may be setting up my motion settings wrong but it seems to me that daylight changes, meaning shadows moving on the floor, trigger the system and therefore I was getting WAY too many emails to have this be a real option. I tried adjusting the sensitivity but couldn't get it to work.

TL:DR; the DVR's fan is WAY TOO LOUD. User interface could be much simpler. 2 cables didn't work, still waiting for delivery. Motion settings oddly sensitive to light changes. Despite all this, happy with purchase.

Android app does not work - not at all - not for anyone. Lorex is aware and is apparently not going to fix it. A class action lawsuit needs to be filed as this system is still being sold and is advertised to have an Android app. Lorex should either pull the affected products that claim to have an Android app or remove their claim to have that app.

I have just installed this product and for the most part it is great. I had great difficulty linking everything to the internet. Local / direct viewing was fine. Technical Service was great and took all the time needed to help me connect everything. Still I am not able to view my cameras when away from home. It is necessary to download an app, which I did both from home and 2 PC's away from home and it still didn't work. I will call Tech support to help me with this. The DVR seems to work very well.

For those of you who are having problems connecting to your security system through the Lorex hdNet Stratus app,because you upgraded your phone operating system to Lollipop 5.0. I have found a solution. Download the Swannview Plus app from Google Play. Do not use the QR scan feature, but convert the setup to IP/Domain and enter your Lorex DDNS ( xxxxxxx.lorexddns.net ) enter your password and save. This fix works like a charm. Disappointed in Lorex for not fixing this glitch, as I upgraded to Lollipop 5.0 in February and have not been able to use my app since then.

This unit was an upgrade from my previous system which was the most basic. This unit came packaged very secure and protected. The setup was very easy using the quick setup/connect guides. The picture quality is sharp and a major improvement both day and night from my older model. The FLIR Cloud access via the smartphone is such a nice feature.

Now for the only negative issue with this particular NVR which sadly confirmed the previous complaints. I've purchase numerous electronics from computers to game consoles to DVRs and this unit houses the loudest fan I've ever heard. The previous comments are not exaggerating when they made this claim. I'm not sure if this is a manufacture defect but it doesn't seem "normal."

Other than that little annoyance it does the job. I haven't decided where to put it but the closet seems like a perfect spot. I still have some time until I decide to keep it or return it.

I purchased this product. Spent $1500 and then told my friends about it and they bought and I set theirs up. Now none of us can see our cameras on our phones because this company will not upgrade their android software. We have tried to contact them at least 15 times and they could care less. I don't know why they can not fix the bug that causes the app to crash. Apparently they could careless about their customers. I would not recommend their products to anyone. I am very frustrated and have nothing good to say about them at this point. It is very embarrassing to recommend a product to friends and customers and then have it be a FLOP!!!

Purchased this unit with two additional cameras. The hardest part of the installation was fishing the Cat5 cable to camera locations. My advice is to avoid attic runs and instead go behind siding if possible. After the Cat5 cable was installed, powering up system is very easy. It is advisable to take some time to familiarize yourself to the system to better navigate all the options. I am very impressed by the clarity of the cameras. You won't be disappointed with the performance. There have been some concerns with the long wait contacting customer service, but, if you follow the directions on the instruction DVD, you won't need customer service.

The online and telephone service is real great. However, if the system were to come with proper (paper brochure ) technical information (about the menus, external set up access, camera adjustments, etc.) we would not have needed to contact the customer services.

More importantly, one of our camera was defective and had to be returned. That was a pain in the $ss for us: hours of switching cables, channels, etc. We got frustrated and turned every thing off. We will try again next week to understand these menus when we get the new camera.

After owning a Lorex NVR400 with 4 bullet cameras and 2 dome cameras for about three weeks I am generally pleased with the system. But since it is new, I am still getting used to it. Here are my initial thoughts:

Pros:
- Good camera quality- Live pictures from the cameras are great during day and not bad at night. The bullet cameras are better quality than the dome cameras.
- Easy setup- Cameras are recognized by NVR about a minute or two after connection.
- Recording quality is good too.
- Search- I have found search relatively easy to use. Just pick a date and click on a time. Play forward, back, slow or fast. Timeline can be as much as 24 hours or as little as 30 minutes.
- Mobile and desktop apps seem to work fine.

Neutral: Software seems more complex than it needs to be but if you work though the menus you can generally find what you need.

Cons:
- As others have pointed out, the fan noise of the NVR is very loud.
- The Quick setup docs are fine, but if you want a hard copy of the 192 page manual, you must print it out yourself.
- Even though the NVR has “Mic In/Out” connectors, it will not record audio unless you buy a camera with a built-in microphone. I am very disappointed with this and hope that Lorex will update their firmware to accommodate a standalone mic.

I am happy to write this review for an additional I year warranty extension. Thanks Lorex.

I am very disappointed with the product. It took me a long time to setup the cameras at home and was excited to be able to do home monitoring outside home using android smartphones and tablets. What a turn off it turned out to be. The Lorex netHD Stratus app does NOT work on Lollipop smartphones. The same app for android tablets is buggy. Switching through cameras closes the app. I can't understand why Lorex is not taking security seriously and have these apps upgraded as soon as possible. Lollipop has been around for nearly half a year now. Jeez.

I have purchased the product end of last year. After I got installed cameras by some help from a handyman, I was able to program system easily without any trouble. I also, hook up monitor to view all the cameras, connect to my two laptops, two android smartphones, and ipad with the instructions provided in less than 2 hours. Once installed and working OK, I had one camera got wet due to rain and stopped working. But few days later, when the moisture from the camera evaporate, the camera started working as before. I also opened the ticket to replace it but when it started working I closed it and did not pursue further. Last week, one of my smartphone updated for latest release "lollipop" then app. stopped working. I call for help and try to resolve without success and found out Lorex had known this problem her and working on it. My all other setup working OK.

The system is fine, but 2 comments: 1. The viewing software is not intuitive or helpful with several functions. My cameras caught a burglar. After viewing the first full page of the recordings, I paged forward for more and found none. A couple of months later, by accident, after the videos were overwritten, I discovered that the page presented was really only a part of a page. One should scroll down instead of page forward, but nothing indicated that there were more videos. 2. The dome cameras are designed for ceiling mount. There are many situations where I would rather put them on a wall. But this is not easily done, and the view is then limited.

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.

The system was very easy to set up and install. The hardest part is running the cable. The image quality is awesome. I have an older 960H TVL camera system and there is no comparison in the quality of the video and snapshot images. DDNS registration and setup was easy, but still can't get access remotely through an internet browser. Luckily the FLIR Cloud setup worked instantly. Only negative is the loud fan. Overall, very nice product.

Purchased the full system with 4 cameras, NVR and all connection cables. Comprehensive system. Reasonably straight forward installation and system fired up correctly right away. Used a HDMI monitor to set it up. Getting the remote access on my PC took several tries but that is now operating perfectly. Still have to get around an "create tunnel failed" error on Android. Picture quality is very acceptable both in daylight and night conditions. However after Android updated it operating system at the beginning of May 2015 to Lollipop 5.0.1 the Lorex phone app stopped working. I notified support and also noticed by doing a web search this was a known problem. Lorex support acknowledged the problem but still 3 weeks later have not fixed their software. This makes remote access via the phone impossible and in essence renders the system useless. Therefore I have lowered my rating to 1 star until this gets resolved. If it is not resolved soon I will start a buyback process and remove the system, replacing it with one that does what it is supposed to do.

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.

Installed this system a few days ago. Very easy camera installation since the house is already wired. NVR setup was easy including getting the iphone app running. Picture quality is very good. 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.

I like the image quality, but the sale service is nonexistent. The software is terrible, remote review doesn't work on android phone using lollipop. On my cellular phone, I have about 30 apps that work fine with lollipop except one that isn't working at all, guess witch one it is. I got no answer from the rep. They are working on it he told me, it has been almost a year now with no solution.

The installation was very easy and took a short time to have it up and running. I made the mistake of installing it in our computer room. WRONG. Do not place this system in a room where you work. This box is LOUDER than the four computers and three printers in the room. I can't believe this system requires a fan that loud to cool the unit. I am thinking about moving it into the refrigerator. Maybe I can hear myself think!

I have installed this system myself. So far it i like. The flir iOS sends notifications whenever it detects motion. Also the setup is very straight forward.

Sending email notification didn't work for me.

The system is a bit loud due to the cooling fan. But it does keep the system cool. i've placed it in my garage.

Just finished installing the LNR400 system a few days ago. AMAZING picture quality day & night. Support was 'excellent" (called them twice to get set up). Only thing I would like is a quiter fan! Also wish misc cables to router etc were longer so I could hide my NVR out of sight from potential thief. Overall i'd rate this four camera system ***** (FIVE) star. I'd rate the support team *****(FIVE) star also. Great company. I am very pleased with my purchase.

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!

Product idea is good, however, the execution and support from Lorex is absolutely the worst. First the remote connect app does not work with the factory setting, you will have to setup DDNS in order to get the app working without crashing 10 seconds after opening the app. Second, after I update my phone OS to the latest Android system, the app does not work at all. It took Lorex half a year and still have not come up with an update. So the system is only doing half of what it supposed to do, extremely bad after sale service.

The initial install and set up was easy. Cameras have a clear image.............but, The cameras have been dropping out for no reason (which I have been putting up with), and now that I upgraded to lollypop on my Samsung s4 the app no longer works! When I searched the web for problems, I was appalled to find out that EVERYONE is complaining with the same problem! On your site there is a recommendation not to upgrade the phone.......how was I supposed to know that in advance? Going back to the old software looks to be next to impossible. So now I can't keep an eye on our home (which is in another state)."Connect to your home or business from anywhere with a Lorex security camera system. Enjoy peace of mind with live video monitoring always at your fingertips- "FROM THE LOREX WEBSITE" I now have to wait until the app works ? Is Lorex going to let me know when I can see the cameras again??????????????????

I've had the system up and running for almost a week now and so far am very happy. The installation was very simple (especially having to only run one Ethernet cable per camera). The picture quality is very good during the daytime and pretty good at night. The flir cloud app needs a little work. Pulling up video notifications is very slow no matter what network the mobile device is attached to. It also has crashed several times. It does work good viewing the cameras live and playing back video segments. Im still experimenting with the motion detect push notifications on my iPhone. At first they drove me crazy but I'm slowly "teaching" the nvr when and where to detect motion. I purchased a ptz with the system and believe is worth every penny. There just needs a way to slow the ptz down while scanning, Or to tell it how long to stay on a particular area while traveling through presets. I have had to call tech support to get help setting up he ddns server and was very surprised how friendly and knowledgeable she way. I'll definitely recommend this system to anyone.... And have.

This security camera system is awesome! Easy to install and set up. Did it all myself. Customer service techs were a great help as well. The best part was going on vacation to Jamaica for a week and being able to watch the cameras whenever I wanted. Even having access to watch the cams via my smartphone while out to dinner or at the store when in my hometown is easy and convenient. Great buy!!!

This is a very good product, and the cameras are very high quality with good night range. The setup of the unit and cameras was pretty easy, and adding the DVR to our phones was also very easy.

I only have two complaints: the DVR fan runs constantly, and is quite loud; and the field of view of the cameras leaves something to be desired. However, my home is fairly large, so the coverage is still good.

Purchased from Costco and it arrived the next day after processing. Everything was included with the system which allowed for an easy setup. HD quality monitoring works great on all my devices used for viewing our home and property. FLIR works flawlessly. 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.

Daytime image is great, night vision not so much, but I still can recognize who is in the picture. I had the system for a couple of weeks and it's been hard to calibrate the motion detect recording, because there's a lot of vegetation that moves with the wind starting the recording and it's hard to make the areas without vegetation in the picture to work by themselves. There are also a lot of mosquitos at night that fly right in front of the camera setting off the motion detect. The day after, there is so much recording to go through. I'll keep trying other settings on the screen areas and camera sensibilities. Working on the NVR is pretty easy once you get to know all of the features. The problem is when i try to run it from a PC, it keeps desconecting and I have broadband at home...

Did my research on this NVR system. Ordered the 16 channel pkg with cameras and POE. Very EASY to setup. I setup 15 Cameras with ZERO issues. So now I'm trying to complete the setup of the last channel with a PTZ camera and well much to my surprise I noticed that there were no PTZ cameras listed as available for this version. The OS on the system has the PTZ options. Surely there had to be a mistake. Well I called Lorex and the Sales team says PTZ will not work on this LNR300 NVR Series. I looked over the website and there is no where that indicates this. I just spend 3500 on this system that is VERY LIMITED and I would consider OBSOLETE. I would have never gone with this model has I know this. VERY DISAPPOINTING

System seems ok. FLIR cloud is not so great, converted to DDNS. Ipad app icons are confusing, iphone app is ok, desktop app is ok. Would be better for at least the desktop app to have the ability to set up zones for motion. One real downfall for this NVR is that motion sensitivity does not exist. This is an absolute must have, not sure how this got missed but motion detection worthless without it. 4 of 6 cameras shipped without the protective cap for the connection. Seems that there is a password length limitation for apps, the NVR will accept a long password but apps will not allow login due to length issues? No product consistency, cameras or NVR/DVR's. Every device is different, you never know what is higher quality, very confusing to the customer. To me they offer whatever Chinese supplier has that month and stamp their name on it.

All this being said, the system works. In today's world to be short on ANY technical features is a downfall though. Maybe I just need to go enterprise level like Pelco or Axis. This system is on the same level as night owl, swann, etc. That is not a terrible thing, just a fact.

The app does not work with this system if you are using lollipop 5.0.1 Worked fine until I updated my phone to the newest software.

I did some significant research before deciding to buy this product. The picture quality is very good, but with 1080P cameras it should be. My biggest disappointment is with the software, especially the mobile application. I use an Android operating system, and even the pre-lollipop had bugs and often crashed, now with lollipop it does not work at all! This was a major part of my decision to purchase this solution. I have spoken with tech support and they have no firm timeline to release a new version, which makes me believe either no one is working on it or their base product is not compatible to be modified to work. Their web browser solution does not work as it never installs a working driver allowing you to view the cameras. It appears to give you a link to load them every time you access via the web, but it never does installs a working driver. Now searching for a new solution since I have no faith this will ever be corrected. Recommend not buying a Lorex product unfortunately.

I have only had the system up and running about a week now, but from what I can see, it's going to be a big asset for my security. We got neighbors who have no respect for others property. Getting it installed requires some drilling and running of wires. It was a breeze to hook up, but I had difficulty installing the software on my computer. I called customer service and the woman I talked to was very helpful and got it working for me. In closing, I'm going to have to say that I will rate the LNR 300 with 4 Stars and would give it a 5 if the software was a little easier to install.

Bought it to replace a Lorex wireless camera system as it interfered with my wireless network. Easy to set up, very clear pictures. After power failure, as mentioned in another review, I had to reload settings and I am still learning the software as it is a little different than the software for the other system. Fan on the NVR is louder than all of the fans in my computer, some features only available when a monitor is attached directly to the NVR and not available remotely from a computer. Cannot get my clock to stay set at the proper time it is always off by an hour even after resetting

LNR300 works very well and is a fairly easy set up. It took a while to set up the DDNS website access, but that was mostly due to figuring out port forwarding and IE11 compatibility issues. The ability to access the cameras with the phone app is awesome, even if it can get a bit choppy... but it's a phone. I haven't used the system too much and I need to get a new monitor for it as the monitor I used to set it up was my girlfriend's computer monitor that is located in another room of the house. Unfortunately, after setup, she wanted her monitor back. :)

Excellent product. The HD allows you to see good detail. The POE camera saves having to run a separate power cable. I would have liked if the Ethernet connector on the camera was built differently so as not to have to drill the big 1 1/4 hole to get it through the wall. Maybe some kind of intermediate connector? Also I would have preferred a somewhat wider angle camera for my situation. However I am happy with the picture and being able to access it remotely with my cell phone.

We already have Lorex wireless for our home and are upgrading to this Lorex HD system after some research. We are pleased with the quality of the camera pictures. The most challenging part of the install was running the ethernet cables up our vaulted cielings, A previous reviewer was right about the length of the supplied HDMI cable being too short, though we did not think the fan was excesively noisy. We wound up having to order a much longer cable after finding an appropriate location for the NVR unit. Overall, we are very pleased with the Lorex family of products and their tech support is wonderful, should you ever need help!

This LNR300 system does in fact work very well. The cameras are very good quality and deliver a very sharp picture, especially when the lighting is good. The NVR was fairly easy to set up, but one problem I had was using an older monitor to initially adjust the settings - the default resolution on the NVR was higher than the monitor could handle, so I had to borrow a hi res monitor, then could set a resolution that worked. (This unit does not have a monitor permanently attached - I connect through a pc). My biggest complaint about the Lorex line is model confusion, and the neccesity of having separate mobile and desktop apps for the 3 locations where I have Lorex systems purchased over a 2 year span. I wrongly assumed that this model would work with Lorex Cloud, since the one I bought 6 months before did. So, pay attention to the series numbers if you want compatibility between systems - the 1 & 4 series work with cloud, but the 2 & 3 series do not. (go figure). By itself, though, this seems to be a fine system so far, and I definitely like the POE advantage of just one cat5 cable to run per camera.

I read many reviews on this product before and after purchasing it, some good and others not so good, so I felt i would use it for a while before jumping to any conclusion 1 way or another. I have had this system up for about 6 months now and feel that I can now give a fair review of the performance and quality of the Lorex LNR300 system. NVR: It is a bit loud, I have gotten used to it and it no longer bothers me as it did when I first hooked up the system. The set up of the applications and camera is pretty straight forward and the interface is not too hard to navigate. I have been noticing recently that I am getting periods of no recording through out the day. This was apparent when I noticed some vandalism in my yard and went back to view the footage and found footage before and footage after, but not a single moment of the actual activity. I have the system set up on motion capture and at a sensitive setting. It will capture the trees blowing in the breeze as well as other previous situations so I know it is the NVR and not the setting or camera. I checked all cameras in the system and they all are missing footage of the exact time frame. This has now happened 2 times that I know of and is the main reason I purchased this system. What good is a surveillance system if it is not working during the moments you need it most. CAMERAS: The quality and clarity or the cameras is beautiful. I am not a fan of the way they are mounted or the way the base is adjusted. The snap on plastic visor seems like it will be a problem in high winds. I haven't lost one yet. REMOTE ACCESS: Viewing the cameras live is fairly clear on both my phone and remotely on my work computer. The real trouble comes when I want to view past motion triggers. The playback is painfully choppy if and when it works. Even at 8x speed it plays in extra slow motion. Even on my home computer the software that came with the system is not stable or up to speed. Yesterday I installed another camera to the system. It took all day for the NVR to finally recognize it. It was just one more reason for me to second guess my purchase. Overall, I am not very satisfied with this system and would find it hard to recommend to anyone. The cameras are good but my biggest disappointment is the fact that when I had the opportunity to catch people damaging my property directly in front of the camera, it struck out twice. I can find very little documentation or help on the internet for this system. It looks like Costco does not carry this system any longer and I may have waited too long to return it.

I purchased the 4 camera bundle with the LNR400 series NVR about 3 weeks ago. I added two more when ordering the bundle. I just purchased 2 more yesterday which will give me a total of 8. Installation was incredibly easy. The hard part was running the cables neatly. The motion detection works very well. Be patient, it takes time to fine tune it. I've been tweaking the system a little each day and have reached a good balance with the alarm e-mails. The snapshots sent by e-mail alerts are incredible. I've just recently changed the recording to motion only, and it's working out great. Things that can be improved: The CAT5 cables are pretty cheap and are wound up so tight that it takes forever to unwind them. You can't groom them so they look good, so I put them inside a Techflex 1" sleeve. Just yesterday, Google updated Chrome and the web browser plugins don't work any more. Still works for Firefox and IE. Hopefully Lorex will fix this and release new firmware/plugins. I also question the purpose of the "default" user. Why can't I change the password? Makes me a bit nervous that it's there for backdoor access. Still waiting on an answer to this. All in all, I'm happy with these cameras. PoE (Power over Ethernet) is the way to go, makes for an easy install. Picture quality is excellent. Night vision works well especially since the building has a lot of exterior lighting. The NVR interface is well done and has tons of functionality. 5 Stars!

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.

ok so i purchased this system for a great deal from best buy and just installed it this past weekend. so my review is based on a few days of having the system up and running. lets first start with the installation. very easy to install; you will have to do drilling and running wires yourself but the connection is easy. the cameras look great. quality and clarity were a must for me and im getting everything i wanted out of them. i love the fact i have room for expansion. one thing i dont like is the noise of the DVR; it's pretty loud; my personal computer is quieter than the DVR so i wish lorex would've installed a better fan or at least give me the option to swap it out without voiding warranty etc.....i also wish they had better FAQ regarding this section; i had to troubleshoot a lot of my own stuff; i emailed them and of course got a generic response in 2 days. it answered one of my questions but i got the famous line of they think i should call in, well there customer service is only open from times im not available; thats what email is for. so a few things i had trouble with were getting the right app for my phone for my system; they should either include that on the cd or the section because they have different apps and it gets confusing. one i got the right app the setup was pretty easy. i did have to set up some port forwarding on my router so i suggest if you have one to make sure you do that. the other thing i was disappointed with is the system only uses IE or Safari browsers because firefox chrome don't accept the plugin they use. well sorry we live in a world that some people use different browsers so it should work in any browser at this point. they should've put that in the guide. the other issue i have been experiencing was the annoying warning beep; i turned it off everywhere but if i login still wrong it beeps; it actually turns itself back on. another thing you may want to know is that this will hurt your bandwidth; thats the biggest problem im experiencing right now. depending on what you do. for me i stream a lot and browse the web alot and my wife works from home so bandwidth on my router is a must. so im currently troubleshooting different tactics before upgrading my ISP bandwidth. it's because the cameras run 720p hd i believe, but this should've been a warning somewhere. other than these set backs which i will try to update later on up here the system is great. flawless; works like a charm. the remote app is great clear and i can take snap shots and do playback if need be. the day time the cameras are super clear at night time you lose some quality because of the dark (and i live in a pitch black area) but that's to be expected because of the dark, but even in the dark the cameras work real nice; i would say i get about 60-70 feet of night vision and during the day im definitely getting 150 feet. i'd definitely recommend this product just know what you're getting into. Lorex definitely should have a better guide though the issues ive discussed here and have a 24hr service or at least better hours for the common working man. i gave this system 4 stars only because of the experiences im having that i didnt know about etc.....i would've given 5 stars otherwise. no one is perfect in the world but the pros definitely out weigh the cons on this system so far. oh and i forgot to mention i will be adding 2 dome cameras at some point; so i guess when i do that i will have to be ready for better upload speeds from my ISP.

This system is really worth for it price, very sharp clarity at night time, there is not need of an extra light. very easy to install. works great with 1 TB hard drive and with the option to add an extra USB. comes with four security cameras but can be added another extra four more.after installing call the technical support to make an account so you can watch on home computer it takes makes less than 5 minutes, help is great sweet people at technical support. Download the APP on your cell and watch it any where you are and your home or business is protected. IT IS REALLY WORHT FOR IT MONEY. RIGHT CHOICE FOR YOUR MONEY.

Received the product almost a month ago, and had installed in shortly after. Everything I needed to get the system up and running was included. Easy set up, quality is what was expected with a clear and crisp picture during the day and night. Love the remote viewing on my smart phone through the FLIR cloud app.

My NVR is set up in the master bedroom, and he fan on the system is a bit loud. It doesn't bother me, but some may find it annoying.

Overall I am happy with the system, as it offers exactly what I was looking for in a security camera system. Again, I have only had it a few weeks, so time will tell if it was a smart choice.

I purchased the LNR360 set with the 3TB drive 6 bullets, and 3 domes from Costco months ago. I just got around to installing the system, and I am not happy at all. My Galaxy S5 phone recently updated to Lollipop, and now the netHD mobile client crashes 100% of the time upon starting, so it's useless. I set up a gmail account specifically for motion alerts, input all the information correctly into the NVR, and it fails to send a test email every time. I haven't had the chance to contact support yet, but I don't think they'll be much help. Overall, I'm pretty dissatisfied with my purchase and am toying with the idea of ripping it all out and returning it to Costco for a refund. The hardware itself is pretty good, and the image quality is great once you get it dialed in, but without the ability to monitor my home remotely, the system is pretty much useless to me. C'mon Lorex, get it together!

They said you would get an email once the product shipped....which I never did. After receiving the product about 10 days after purchase, I was pleased with the quality of product. Instructions never tell you to navigate to the devices IP in a web browser to get to the config interface, once that was cleared up with tech support the rest was a breeze. Wish i would have known they connectors don't sit inside the housing of the camera, so they can easily be tampered with. If you're installing these cameras outside, make sure you have something watertight and tamper proof to connect them inside of. Other than that the quality was great and what I expected.

Got this exact system at Costco but it also included two dome cameras. The NVR and camera set up was easy. I was able.to view the cameras on my phone and laptop locally and remotely through the software. The quality of the picture is very clear. Easy to use.

Its been two days now since I've set up my DDNS. Still having problems connecting VIA web browser. But I've been getting help with Lorex tech support.

Glad I spent the extra money for POE 1080p camera/NVR system. Well worth it.

I ordered this product and it came within a few days. Set up with Android is a snapped. I installed the Flir cloud from google store and scan QR code. I was able to view all my cameras with a few minutes. It very easy. However, set up a second device like iphone or Ipad to view the same camera is not easy. I wished Flir cloud added a feature to detect the camera system already been setup, skip the set up steps and prompt user or take user to live view.

I don't write reviews of products, but for free one year extension of the warranty here goes.

I am writing this for the LNR84W system. I have only had it a few days and I am still learning it's capabilities which, by the way, seem fairly extensive. For now I only have two of the four cameras permanently mounted since the wiring is, as expected, a pain in the hind quarters.

First off, just one quibble regarding the packaging. The physical packaging is adequate, however the four Ethernet cables that come with the system are so tightly wound and twisted that it took me an hour per cable working out the twist and tight coils to get them straight enough to pull without twisting and kinking. Even at that it was a two man job. One to actually do the pulling, and one to monitor the cable at the source end to keep it from birds nesting or kinking going into the holes. Other than the cables, all was good.

Installation. I placed it close to my 55" TV. That brings me to the second quibble, the included HDMI cable is ridiculously short, and the power cord is also too short. As soon as I powered it up I knew this was not going to be where I kept it. The fans are not loud, they are LOUD!!! You will not want to keep it in any room you occupy. So with the ridiculously short cables that come with the system, and the extremely loud fans, I had to move the NVR to another location after I did some initial configuration.

Setup. I have a lot of IP devices in my home, so I like to give each of them a static IP address. I was not able to do so with this device at first. When I set the address I could not save the information and I got an error message that was in poor English and was missing the critical information to decipher it. I called their tech support (10 min wait), and in a few minutes they had me going again with my manual IP address.

Usability: Since the NVR has to be kept some place where the fan noise can be quarantined, the only way to access it is either via web browser or their FlirCloud app. I like the web browser best, but it requires plugins to be installed. This means you can only use it from Windows or Mac since the plugins are not available for Linux, Android, or probably Apple products other than Mac making this my one major complaint. The web interface should be fully contained in the NVR and the plugins eliminated making it more universal. Also, some context sensitive help menus would be great. As for the FlirCloud?? . . .the Windows version seems to be as complete as the web interface, and may even have some functionality the web interface does not have. I have not investigated that much as yet. As for the Android version??? Well it is a phone app with limited bandwidth so all you can do is view the low res feed from the NVR except via wifi. The only quibble I have about it is that it doesn't remember my camera setup from the last session. I have to manually add the cameras back in each time. There may be a way to do it, but I haven't found it yet.

In Summary: Overall I think the LNR84W is off to a very good start. The cameras provide good quality images, although the infra-red mode seems to be a little too concentrated in the center. I am just starting to play around with the motion detection, but it seems very well featured with the ability to set sensitivity in up to 4 regions in each camera, send email alerts (text messages would be a good add-on too), turn on multiple cameras when one detects motion, etc. I hope this all works the way I want it to. It has plenty of alarm options too. I am quite satisfied with the product and would definitely recommend it, even to friends and family. Just find it on sale.

They sell a unit that says you can access the camera's via a APP. THIS is not true . Their APP does not support Lollipop. and the APP has not been updated since 2013. They have known about this issue since November of 2014 and 6 months later still not fixed

I purchased the LNR360 in July 2014 from Costco. They came with 6 bullet and 3 dome cameras. Installation was a breeze. PoE is the only way to go. The picture quality from these cameras are amazing. I use the Lorex app on my Iphone and never have a problem. The NVR unit probably could be a little more user friendly or maybe I should just take a little more time to read the directions, not sure yet, been a little lazy with that. Most of neighbors that have seen these cameras are blown away by the quality. I tell them to "go big or go home", you get what you pay for. What's the sense of getting cheap grainy cameras. If this is the case, go get fake cameras and save your money. As far as customer service goes, make sure you establish an account online with Lorex and fill out the warranty information. It is very important to get your receipt scanned and uploaded into your account, I recently had a little trouble with my remote and called customer service. I put them on speaker and played around on the internet until they picked up 20 minutes later. Once I got a live person the call lasted 2 minutes. They checked my account and saw the uploaded receipt and told me the remote will be shipped on the next business day. Sure enough, UPS banging on my door with what I needed. They do have an option to make a ticket online instead of calling, but I recommend doing that and calling. The ticket didn't seem to get addressed right away. Not sure how that works with them. Overall, I highly recommend this system and plan on adding more cameras to my system.

I bought the HD NVR security system with 4 full HD cameras (Model # LNR84W) for my home. I also agree with a previous review, the NVR and cameras were all packed very well, and the quality is great. All the features this system offers are just awesome, and the software is pretty user friendly. I just started to install my system myself and so far it’s going great. I had a couple of questions for the technical help team and they were very patient and knowledgeable. The tech and customer support teams are real professionals and they get high marks in my book! Setting up my PC and IPhone 6 to my system went smooth, and it’s really cool to be able to dial up your house on your phone and see what is going on real time.

I also added the HD PTZ IP camera with 12x Optical Zoom – 1080p (Model # LNZ32P12). The camera is real smooth and can adjust to move slow or fast. I missed step #4 (remove packing foam ring around the camera) with the setting up and install process of the PTZ camera, it caused my cam to not pan left or right, but tech support was quick to help me trouble shoot the problem. All in all, I haven’t even finished my system yet and I already feel more secure knowing I’m on track to having one of the best surveillance security systems on the market.

This system is super easy to set up and get going. The resolution and picture quality of the cameras are excellent. I prefer the bullet cameras over the dome cameras because they are much more flexible when installing. That would be the only down-side of this system for me. Highly recommend this system looking to protect their home or business!

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 purchased a 6-camera system (4 bullet, 2 dome cameras) from Costco about 6 months ago and performance has been very good with minimal downtime. However, one of the cameras failed after approximately 4 months and had to be replaced through Lorex warranty. The phone call with customer service to perform initial diagnostics and obtain an RMA number for replacement was easy and fast, but Lorex received the failed unit and was in possession of it for a month (based on UPS tracking information) before I received the replacement camera. After 3 weeks of waiting for the replacement I contacted customer service who may have resolved this "limbo" and finally initiated shipment of the replacement camera, so overall I was happy with their customer service even after this problem. Their mobile applications for iOS on both iPhone and iPad are great, as well as the PC application. Each has its own minor bugs or hiccups (i.e. occasional dropped stream) but work well enough for what I require. I did find that internet-streaming performance is significantly better when using a DNS to your network rather than connecting to the Stratus web service first. The Stratus service makes things very easy, but streaming performance was lacking considerably versus connecting directly to the system using DNS. I did not try the Lorex-offered DNS and instead chose to use a No-IP.com DNS. Overall, the system suits my needs and I've been satisfied with both its performance and Lorex customer service for the price.

I am currently running 8 of these cameras. Yes, I have had to return one that failed after a short period. However, the night vision is as good as could be hoped for, and the customer service is excellent. Even though these are not ptz cameras, the picture can be enlarged in real time substantially before the resolution gets grainy. Very easy to install, and the software program that allows snapshots or video is super.

This camera system works really well, but it's a challenge to get the motion detection settings right on the DVR and the remote computer/iPad/iPhone, etc so I am getting real alerts and not getting false positives. I found the learning curve to be very steep, but it's mostly due to documentation issues. That said, however, their technical customer service is EXCELLENT, and has been stepping me through everything. Also, I rarely have to hold for the "next available technician." It's still not doing what I want it to with motion detection sending me the alerts I want, but I think we'll get there eventually. I do have confidence that the 24/7 coverage is in the DVR, however, although I have not explored playback much yet. I think the hardware for the money is an exceptional value and hard to beat. The software seems adequate, I think (at least as far as I've understood it), but the documentation for my model could explain things better, i.e., the software is not intuitive and online help would help a lot within the the DVR console system. Glad we bought this product and I recommend it. Just be prepared to fiddle with it a while to get what you want.

Right out of the box I was impressed with the packaging and the build quality - night and day difference from my old Sv@t piece of junk system. Cannot go wrong with hidef. I like the daylight clarity but field of view is and night vision could be better. I feel claimed distance of view is way exaggerated but I can almost understand it being a limitation of the camera lens. I can't quite get the DDNS working - will have to call support for that. Flir Cloud works but I can only view for 10 minutes with a single camera; viewing multiple cameras drops the connection anywhere from 45 seconds or so to maybe 1-2 minutes at most even with 5 bars signal strength on my cel phone. All in all, I'm very satisfied with the quality.

Pros: - PoE is very nice. One Ethernet cable for signal and power. This makes for a much simpler installation. No electrical outlet is needed at each camera installation. - Ethernet cables are included with bundle package. - NVR recognizes cameras automatically and relatively quickly. - iOS app is simple yet useful. Easy to set up. - Video is high quality. Clear picture during the day. Night vision works well, but the max distance you'll get will vary with conditions. - 3 out of 4 cameras have worked flawlessly through the winter. - Remote video playback on iOS app works well. It works better than on PC. Cons: - Setup via PC software could be easier. It wasn't very intuitive for a first time user. It took a while to figure out how to get everything set up properly and view from PC software, but the software works once you figure out how to use it. 3 minute setup?...not quite. - The documentation is very limited as far as how helpful it acutally is. The quick start guide is too brief. The full manual is not extensive enough. - No listing of error codes anywhere. Not in documentation or online. So, if you do get an error, the code is worthless because you can't find out what it means. - No remote diagnostics for camera error codes. No remote reset for cameras or NVR. If you are monitoring a remote location and have a problem there is no way to reset or troubleshoot without driving out to location. This is incredibly inconvenient if you have it to monitor a house 1-2 or more hrs away. - One of my cameras has flaked out several times in the winter weather with error code 416. - The ethernet connection on the camera dongle is huge. If you are looking to mount a camera outside and bring the connecor inside (so it isn't expose to the weather outside) by drilling a hole in the wall, you have to drill a very large hole to get the connector through the wall. The camera mount then barely covers the hole. - Compatibility with android OS is limited. This was very disappointing. A 2 year old android device is not compatible with this system. - Setting up access for web browser is much more of a process than it should be. Still don't have this going yet. - Motion sensing doesn't work quite like we had hoped. Even on the least sensitive setting, bugs/spiders/moths set off the motion sensor constantly. Don't really see any way to make this feature useful unless you live somewhere with no insects. Overall: We are satisfied with the product, but there are many improvements that could be made. This system should suffice, but I think our expectations were a bit high mainly because we expected a very polished product for the price. One camera seems to be failing, but everything else is working fine. We are not ecstatic, but we are not tearing the system out. This system is probably as good as it gets for home security cameras considering you can access via PC software remotely, iOS, Android (and supposedly web browser). This is probably one of the best systems (based on simple comparison on the internet) you can get without spending thousands more on a more industrial/professional system. All things considered, I would recommend this product. Just have realistic expectations.

Purchase the 4 camera HD system everything working better than expected, love the picture quality during the day and night was amazing. However after 24 hours one camera stopped working. Currently working with LOREX tech support on a replacement camera plus they offered a 20% discount on all future purchases. Set-up was easy, might be why the full down load directions were not included. Just a easy set up page is all you need! Tech support was GREAT double checking everything to make sure it wasn't something simple. Re-checked connections tried plugging in cat5 cable to another port to see if that works however still did not work plus getting an RMA # set up to replace the camera. I will upgrade my rating once I see the new camera working correctly. Regards, Scott

This cameras are attractive by the price, the quality at dark is not good at all, you will not recognize anyone's face if you had to or body. During the day is OK as long as they are not in the shade or the quality will be very bad, unable to recognize a face again. The Ethernet cameras disconnect on their own very often you have to keep resetting cameras. The customer service is the worst that you can experience. The cameras on DVR disconnect on they own also for no reason and have to reset often. Overall the cameras are not what you expect for a security system, very unreliable. If you have not experience all of these problems already you will in time or quick, lots of complains, Costco product. IF LOREX HAVE A FIX FOR ALL OF THESE PROBLEMS THAT WILL BE GREAT, LET US KNOW I'LL BE GLAD TO TAKE THE ADVISE OR THE REPAIRS.

I purchased the LNR 360 and hooked up 8 cameras to protect my parents. I live over 400 miles away and can easily view all cameras on my IPAD. the view is crystal clear. I get the opportunity to look at the cameras history at night to ensure that no one is walking around my parents house at night. It gives me and my parents peace of mind. If they hear anything or if in the morning they noticed something is out of place around the house outside, I just look at the cameras history and I can determine what the issue was. Anyone who does not have a camera system does not realize the peace of mind there is knowing you know what is happening about your house 24 hours a day. I would absolutely recommend Lorex camera systems to everyone. The video runs and records at 1080 P and I can watch any activity almost in live smooth motion. Thank you Lorex!

Our UPS driver highly recommended the Lorex product line. I decided that the LNR84 system seemed to be right-sized for our home. Other than the typical challenges faced with mounting cameras on both masonry and wood surfaces, and pulling the PoE cables to connect to the DVR unit, the installation was a snap! I feel that anyone with decent DIY skills can handle this. The daytime color is stunning, and the nighttime illumination is amazing. We are very pleased with this addition to our home security.

Looked online and at real stores and found the Lorex to be what I was looking for. Called the sales line on the phone (got a real person and after 6pm at night). The sales person was very helpful and worked with me to get the mix of cameras ( bullet and dome) that I wanted. They upgraded the DVR to a higher model for no additional cost. Received the hardware in a few days and the packing was very well done so shipping damage should be non existent, there was no damage to my order. Anxious to see how my system worked I plugged the NVR in and connected 3 of the 6 cameras. All came right up with no issues. Within 15 minutes I had the cameras up on my iPhone, iPad, and my laptop. Ran the ethernet cables to my 6 cameras, reconnected the NVR and,,,nothing. Called Lorex Support and confirmed the BIOS failed in the NVR and a replacement would be sent out to me. Six days later the replacement came and after plugging in all the connections all 6 cameras came up. Picture quality is great. Had to call support to set up the email function and after about 45 minutes that was working. Still need to set up the motion alert function. So far so good, now the question is long term reliability, Only time will tell

The NVR and HD Cameras are excellent quality. Along with the 4 Bullet Cameras that came with the NVR package, I bought two additional dome cameras. One of the dome cameras was sporadic in auto-connecting to the NVR. Lorex is replacing the dome camera. The picture quality is superb HD on both the Bullet and Dome cameras.
The NVR cooling fan is loud. Due to the loud fan, you will not want the NVR in the family room or any occupied room. Mine is in an upstairs closet, which is closer to the attic anyway where all the Ethernet cables are run. I added a 25ft HDMI extension to connect to the downstairs Family room TV and I added a 32ft USB extension to plug into the NVR Mouse downstairs.
Camera location/directional placement is important to prevent Night-vision IR blow back (which will give a foggy halo effect) on night vision pictures.
The NVR Operating System take a little getting used to the interface. And, the mobile Apps for the Android, iPhone, and iPad are all a bit different from each other (not, impossible, but, just different). I'm still trying to fine-tune my NVR and Camera configurations with respect to Record Options (Continuous or Motion Detect-only), Motion Detection masking for just certain areas, Text Msg alerts, Email with attachments, etc, etc

All-in-All, I am very satisfied with the products and the Lorex Technical Support.

Good image quality, especially during daylight hours. In my case, useable night vision range is 25-30' in darkness. So far has been pretty reliable. Once in a great while a camera may need to be reset by unplugging from the NVR and plugging back in. The drawbacks I wish would be addressed are that there are only 2 cameras available, both with a 75 degree field of view and you can't use other branded cameras on this system. Been waiting for a longer fixed lens camera for watching a specific area, plus a full 90 degree camera would make this system more flexible. Even the same cameras but with different focal length cameras would really help.The phone app and the PC app (which shuts off after a varying amount of time) could stand for some more robustness. Having "port forwarding" set up so you can view continuously in a web browsers (Internet Explorer only due to ActiveX) seems to be the best way to remotely view, but it's not that straightforward to set up. If you can live with only 75 degree cameras, its a pretty nice system.

We purchased two of the NVR 380 systems for different buildings and for the most part they have worked flawlessly. Setting them up on an existing network and integrating into a Cisco infrastructure was not quite as simple as advertised but once that was complete the performance has been outstanding. The remote control functionality is not great but with the client and console from the NVR management is easy and straight forward. I would recommend them highly.

I purchased the LNR300 NVR with 4 cameras for a new home installation. Initial setup was simple and the NVR with attached cameras started without an issue. Very good quality HD video on the cameras with a good field of view. Installed 3 cameras with existing roughed in ethernet wiring and looking into a powerline / POE injector setup for the 4th camera in an area that was not prewired. Lots of options on fine tuning the setup and camera settings including sending emails on motion detection. Setup DDNS to access cameras anywhere off the internet. Web version of record playback seems better than the PC client version, but imagine some tweaking on the PC client should fix this. Android mobile app pretty good with not too much lag time (couple of seconds), but seems to stop unexpectedly if doing certain things - hope new releases resolve this. Live view a little choppy but will look at port forwarding mobile port to see if that helps. Good customer support on issue setting up email notifications. They resolved it quickly and explained the reason I was having the issue.

The entire system is easy to install (except for having to run cables throughout the attic) and the picture quality is awesome. However, I am very unimpressed with the software, both the PC client and the mobile apps. First, the include CD is relatively useless as the "Menu" all take you to the same product page where you then have to navigate on your own to find what you are looking for. The PC client software works OK but it is very clumsy to use. Finally, the Android apps simply do not work. I have been unable to get it to work on my LG3 phone or my Galaxy tablet. The app crashes or shuts down on its own. I have a tech support request ticket with no response yet. In my opinion, the lack of a functional mobile app is a killer as I would not have purchased this unit had I known that - instead, I bought in on their own hype where they say it only takes 30 minutes to set up. If the app performance improves, I would rate this higher.

Hardware is great, software is bad. Cameras go down often, still get notifications via email that there is movement but no pictures in email and NO recording on hard drive. Have to reboot from home PC otherwise get an error message that the "network is abnormal" at our .lorex.ddns.net address. What good is it to have a remote app that loads dark screens and no way to reboot remotely. I am not the only one having this problem. Maybe that is why they have a new FLIR Cloud for the new machines. I think this has to go back to Costco. Today I was so mad that I kept getting notifications on that I could not check out, I almost threw my new iPhone out the window. There is no reason to put a security system on the market with this type of software flaw. Oh and yes, there have been many calls and emails for tech support and we still have issues.

I have installed six of these cameras. The night vision is excellent. I have added powerful LED motion sensor lights from Home Depot; so strong that the night vision is in color with these cameras. When the ms lights are off, the ir cameras still do a remarkable job of night vision. I purchased a 150 ft. roll of direct burial cable from Amazon to extend one camera to an outbuilding. The results were excellent, and longer direct burial rolls are available. These cameras are worth the price. The service is excellent.

Installed the Lorex 16 Channel HD NVR, MOD: LNR 4160 with 9 1080p Cameras. Cameras plugged into the NVR came up and worked great. Had a problem with the cameras plugged into the POE Switch but finally got them to connect to the NVR. Works exactly as they advertise. Great System, fantastic picture. Called tech support twice with no waiting. Courteous, professional and knowledgeable.

The cameras being powered by POE greatly simplifies their installation and the locations they can be used. The NVR setup was very simple. The quality of the video is extremely good in both daylight and at night. Playback is much simpler than with pior systems and there are a number of useful options for locating the frames of interest (by time, motion, fast/slow motion options). The iOS apps for the iPad and iPhone work well, with the caveat that they tend to get memory errors if a large number of other apps are open concurrently. The only quirk I ran into was related to cameras on the POE hub used for cameras in the 9-16 range dropping out. Turns out that after power glitches, the IP addresses of some cameras had changed. I was able to avoid that issue by associating specific permanent IP addresses with these cameras' MAC addresses in my router.

I have purchased two LNR-300 systems, one for my main residents and one for a mountain home. The installation of the cables was time consuming without a major technical challenge. The PoE works great, the supplied cables are of excellent quality. The footings on the cameras however, are very small and the female Ethernet plug is in comparison large. The plug requires a 1 1/8” hole, not so much of a problem in wood but a different story in a masonry siding. The small footing and large hole leaves only little material for the dowels and screws. The programing of NVR and cameras is very simple. The features on the NVR are excellent and easy to understand. It took me about 15 minutes from plug in the power cord to recording the first pictures; this includes connecting to Stratus on PC and two iPad’s and updating the firmware. The pictures are brilliant with exceptional detail and clarity. The night vision pictures are clear with fine details even in a pitch-dark moonless mountain environment. The recordings are easy to find and to playback. The remote connection via Stratus is good and easy to operate on PC and iPhone.

Bought my system through Costco which has exact system with 2 additional dome camera for a total of 6 cameras all for about 1000.00. Installation was made simple. Connecting on my mobile devices was a piece of cake but had a little trouble with flir cloud on my macs but tech support was more than helpful. I had read some reviews about poor tech support and was hesitant to buy but having talked to them on multiple occasions, I can say lorex tech support is awesome. Finally, the bullet cameras work beautifully so far but my dome cameras have infrared blow back so night vision is obscured by infrared haze. Spoke to tech support about this and they say they will replace with the bullet 1080p cameras which I'm waiting for customer support to get back to me on that. I would not hesitate to buy again if I need another system.

Aside from pulling wires all around, setup was easy. I like that the cameras connect with and are powered by ethernet cables; I found pulling and connecting with ethernet easier than traditional security camera cables. The video quality is outstanding; I get wows from the neighborhood watch group. I added a 4TB HD which made the retention time acceptable. I added two more cameras later. My only knock is the Android apps, which are finicky and crash if you do the wrong thing (like drop camera view on an active one). Otherwise I would give 5 stars.

The hardest thing was hard-wiring in an older house. System seems to work well and picture in-house and remotely works well. Costco/Lorex customer support very helpful. This system was recommended to me by neighbors who had researched security camera systems and I'm glad I followed their advise. I paired with a dedicated Samsung TV for in-house monitoring. My display's were intermittently going dark. Following a trouble-shooting session with Lorex, I was sent a replacement NVR and had not other problems. Model # changed from LNR382C4B to LNR 380. Also, my remote doesn't work, but that may be due to my NVR location. I use a wireless mouse and that works fine. I would recommend this unit, especially if you need to supply HD recording to police or insurance company for any problems. In New Orleans we can register our recording surveillance with police and if there are any incidents on our block, we can be contacted for their review.

This system is surprisingly clear, easy to setup, and the direct interface is very stable. The mobile interface is mostly accessible, but there are times it is difficult to connect. The most troubling aspect of the unit is the email notification - it only worked for a short period, and getting it to that state was a mystery along with why it stopped. On the positive side of things, Lorex (FLIR) technical support has been AWESOME in trying to work with me to get this issue resolved. They have contacted me by both email and phone to help however they can, suggesting multiple solutions (which so far have not worked). Based on their tenacity at trying to get this work, i'm confident we will come to a resolution one way or another. Very impressed. The only thing I would like to see with this is the ability to record sound, but that would probably kill the bandwidth needed for the crisp picture.

I inspected all the camera and hooked it up to the Dvr and everything worked perfect! The installation was a breeze with the help of a friend. I love to be able to see what's going on at the house while we are away. We don't have a front facing window so it helps to have a camera at the entrance to see who's at the door. I love the system.

I purchased the LNR382 with 6 cameras about 6 months ago. The system was generally easy to set up and use. Had a minor problem with the set up of the email alert but this was quickly resolved by Lorex tech support. Hardest part of the set up was running the wires for the cameras (I have an old house). Note: A hole of 1.25” is required to connect the camera to the cables provided. Currently I have only 4 of the 6 cameras installed. No problems with the NVR. The fan is a little bit noisy at times but bearable. Picture quality of both the dome and bullet cameras are very good in daylight. The night vision quality is okay. Any thing over 25 feet is so so in complete darkness. Probably not able to make a positive facial identification. I’ve used most of the features of the system. Lorex tech support is good with helping with any set up questions. Remote viewing on a computer and smart phone looks good. Sometimes the software on the smart phone crashes. Overall I’m happy with the system and would recommend it to others.

I decided HD quality picture. If i'm going to record something I need to see it clearly. during the installation process the Lorex CPU stop working it froze on the logo screen. Called support and they exchanged the unit no problem. Delivery times not super quick but in reasonable time. The system is quite picky with the cameras some times when you shut down the unit I will loose a camera or 2 but after reset they would come back. why did I turned it off you ask? to set up the next camera!. It takes a learning curve to get to know the system have not tried to get the email working. But picture is clear and crisp and does what it says. Over all I'm happy with the purchase and the wife too.

I spent several weeks researching video security systems in October of 2014. There were more systems than I thought there would be and the options for cabling, recording and remote viewing were a bit daunting. Finally, in November of 2014, I made my choice and purchased the LOREX LNR380 system with six cameras from COSTCO. I put everything on a table, hooked it up and made sure it worked. It worked perfectly right out of the box. I planned to cable and set up the system as part of a home renovation project, so back in the box it went. I mid-January my renovation was complete and I connected five of the cameras and powered up the system. Once again, it worked perfectly right out of the box. I only had to make a slight aiming adjustment for two of the five cameras. Due to cabling distances and pathways I ran new CAT6 cable for each camera and made up my own cable end terminations. Customization of the system was extremely straight forward and easy. I did have a problem setting up email notification, however after creating a “ticket” on the LOREX website I received a detailed reply. Except for the suggestion to update my firmware (I had already updated it) I followed the easy to understand instructions and email alerts began working perfectly. Setting up motion activation was a snap. For now I have it turned off and am recording all cameras continuously. This is providing almost nine days of recording history. Once I finish some work in my garage, I will be able to hook up the sixth camera at which time I may change to motion detection recording. By reading the reviews it is obvious some people have had serious problems with their LOREX systems. However, the negative reviews appear to pretty small in number considering how many systems LOREX sells. For me, this system is performing as advertised and I could not be happier with the installation, set-up and performance. My wife and several friends have expressed their surprise as to the quality of the camera images. One friend said it is too bad the pictures you see of bank robbers are not as good a quality and as clear as the images on my LOREX system. One of the great features of this system is remote viewing/control. The setup of remote viewing/control or my iPhone, iPad and desk top computer was much easier and quicker than I had anticipated. In summary, if you read and follow the instructions, be careful when running cables and upgrade the firmware to the most current version, I expect most people will be very happy with their LOREX system.

We have had our system for about a year now and while it was easy to setup and the image quality is good, the reliability has been less than we expected. We have ongoing problems with cameras dropping out on the live display screen. Initially it was on the 3x3 split screen we were using and when we opened a ticket with Lorex their response was don't use the 3x3. We dropped to the 2x2 and still have the problem. It often takes a few reboots to get it happy again for a week or two. Lorex has still not provided a functional solution, just that they are working on it.

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.

I am an Engineer for WB. I understand all kinds of electronics but I didn't know anything about security cameras. I did some quick research and decided to buy a Lorex HD camera system. I love the bar code reader to setup NVR and I love the on-board POE switch as well as the auto camera finder. The things I don't like are the fact that Lorex doesn't keep current with firmware. My Lorex NVR is actually made by Hikvision. The audio is not enabled, I cant use 3rd party cameras, etc...I really like Lorex but they need to loosen up a bit.

I bought this system for my wife to have peace of mind. We had some problems with a neighbor dumping yard waste on our land. We put up a fence but that didn't solve the problem. The clarity from these cameras is incredible! We showed a couple of other neighbors the picture from the cameras and they were amazed too. Word got out about our system and we haven't had any more dumping issues on our property. The saying about good fences making good neighbors may be outdated. Our security system makes better neighbors. My only complaint is that the system is not user-friendly so we haven't been able to use all of the features. We can view our property remotely from our phones and tablets but that is the only feature we have been able to use. I would still recommend this system though.

Very pleased with the system. Properly running the wiring for the four outside cameras was a project but the system was as close to plug & play as possible. Daytime video is excellent night vision is very good but everyone should understand that in most cases night vision is not good enough to id people or plates. Fan is relatively loud but a lot less than I had expected after reading other reviews. Default password did not work so I had to contact customer service. I was on hold for less than two minutes and problem was resolved in 5 min. Remote connection was surprising easy since I have little network knowledge.
CON.. Instructions for remote connection say to go to Lorextechonology.net and click on the status icon. There is no stratus icon which resulted in a half hour search to find the correct access remote software. You have the same issue with the manual, instructions only bring you to the home page and you need to find the correct links. Lorex should give full path and save people the frustration. Overall very pleased with the system.

The cameras make a much sharper image than my old cameras. By cons, we must make a hole 1 inch 1/4 to get the connector ... there is room for improvement on that side. The "Lorex Stratus Connectivity" does not work in my office because of "firewall". I'll test the DDNS. With POE, less wiring and no need for external transformer.

This is an honest and early review... If I can I'll update it over time.

This is the second security system I've used so I have something to compare and here are my first impressions;

1. The build quality of the hardware is very good, the cameras and the NVR are solid all around, the NVR is a little on the heavy and big side but nothing extreme.

2. The system is packed with EVERYTHING you need to set the system up (Not the tools of course). It even comes with a template for the holes you have to drill, that's a small but incredible detail.

3. The setup is nearly Plug-n-play! You don't need to touch ANYTHING to get it running, you just wire everything and you are good to go. (Some settings can be modified but it's not neccesary)

Now for the two negatives so far:

1. The user interface is lacking... For now I'll say no more.

2. The fan on the NVR is LOUD, and I mean REALLY LOUD.
I was thinking of placing the main unit on the same desk I have my Desktop PC but after hearing it, it won't happen.

Overall it's a great system and for the price, it's a steal!

I'm waiting to play a little more so I can write an extensive review.

Got my system in early Dec. 2014, installed mid Dec. System works great the clarity on the HD cameras is amazing. System setup was a breeze, I have a Mac and its little more work to access the DVR from it, get a the monitor that comes with it or use any monitor for that matter a lot more user friendly than the Mac. The mobile device setup is like a three step setup. Had a little issue with the Mac communicating with the DVR, called customer support and had the issue resolved quickly. Over all the system works great and I highly recommend it.

This was very simple to get up and running from the NVR. The negatives are 1) there was no Mac disk image on the included CD--only a Windows executable; 2) you have to download a manual; and 3) the software is clumsy. The Mac version looks like a Windows interface--even the window controls are on the wrong side. The positives are 1) The Android app is simple to configure; 2) the image quality is good and 3) the NVR is easier to configure than the crappy client software.

Hardware - NVR and HD cameras excellent! POE setup - simple plug and play Software - OK but much easier to navigate and configure through web access. Setup and Configuration - as I'm an IT professional everything was pretty easy and straight forward. I have a static Internet IP so opening and forwarding the required ports was simple. I opted for using a web browser instead of the monitoring software/cloud services for remote access as it's much faster. I also used my static IP with the Android software for best performance as the Lorex provided cloud service locks up and isnt very fast. If you do not have a static Internet IP be sure to setup and use the DDNS service. Camera and software configuration including email alerts, motion detection/monitoring, holiday scheduling, playback and capture are amazing. Many other great configurable options. Notes: Set the NVR with an internal static IP and forward the required ports in your router. Use the DDNS service (or static IP if you have one) for remote web access and Android/Apple instead the Lorex cloud service as it's much faster. Internet Explorer was the fastest browser I tested (IE Firefox and Chrome). Be sure to add your IP/DDNS site to the Compatibility View settings and get the plugin loaded. Awesome product and would highly recommend!!

It's been a month since I bought and reviewed the camera system but this update is specifically for these categories:

SETUP (4 stars) - System configuration was difficult at first and had to call several times for help but now it's easy since I'm more familiar with the system's menu.

VIDEO QUALITY (5 stars) - Perfect day or night (b/w only). Clarity is unmatched by any lower end models. Very satisfied and just ordered two more add-on cameras.

FLIR CLOUD using the code on the NVR (0 star) - It worked for only one day and never did work again until I setup my DDNS server. I have both Andriod and iOS phones on a 4G ATT network. It only worked when connected to my home's wifi. None of the Flir Cloud reviewers on Google Play were able to connect to it either.

FLIR CLOUD using my personal DDNS server (5 stars) - Initially, I tried to set this up myself but it didn't work so I called for tech support. The person who helped me couldn't get it to work either. She blamed it on my ISP but I later discovered that she had made an error in the setup process. I corrected that error and have been able to view my cameras from any location since.

VIDEO PLAYBACK (3 stars) - Works well but only searchable by day and not by hours. Lorex should design the system so that we can select the date along with starting and ending time during playback. Currently, you can see the entire day's recording but when you click on a section, it does not always hold or play at that location.

TECH SUPPORT (3 stars) - If I were to grade them on professionalism, I would give them 5 stars but for technical know how, it's a different matter. Of the four tech persons I spoke with during the initial setup, only one seemed knowledgeable. The rest were just a hit and miss.

REMAINING ISSUE - I still haven't been able to configure the system so when it detects something, I would be notified by a message or email.

Despite some drawbacks, I'm satisfied with the system so far and hope that it will last for at least several years.

Got my LNR382C4B system before Thanksgiving. So far the system is running great. I know a lot of people like me don't like to run a long cable from the outside all the way to the NVR which should be close to the router. But this NVR has a good option which you don't have to connect all cameras directly into the back of the NVR. The option allows you to connect camera to the LAN and the NVR will recognized the camera. What I did is run all the camera cables into one room in my 2nd floor and from there are two ways you can connect to the NVR. One way is using a router in a bridge mode to connect all your camera to the main router which your NVR is connected too. Off course you need a POE switch to connect all cables together before feed into this bridge or the bridge already has POE available. There you save lots of cable running and not drill tons of holes in your home. The 2nd approach is what I eventually used is instead of going through the bridge router, I connect the POE switch which has 4 cameras connected and connect the 5the Ethernet port, my POE switch has 8 Ethernet ports, directly into my phone line. Here you need to modify your phone socket to a RJ45 and an phone jack. My house use cat5 cable to for the phone, so basically the phone use only 1 pair of the 4 pairs line and the Ethernet use only 2 pairs or 3 pairs if POE is needed. Thus I can connect all my 4 camera from 2nd floor all the way down to 1st floor inside the wall and come out form the phone jack on 1st floor that is close to my router and NVR, of course your need to modify this into a RJ45 and phone jack to use both function. These two potions seems all durable for my cases and when I add more camera I might use the bridge router mode which the place might not have phone line available to convert into Ethernet. All this can be done thanks the NVR's capability of recognized the camera from the LAN. One more tip is one of my camera starts to white out or restart every time the motion detection was triggered. Called the tech support and they are going to replace a new one for me. Lorex seems to know what is going on with their product.

The system is really easy to setup and picture quality is great. I find the Mac client a bit difficult to use and slow. Will be calling support soon to get some info if it is me or the software.

Day color video is good night image black and white IR is very good . operating system is clunky and makes no sense. settings that are related are in places that makes no sense so you have to keep going back and forth in a clunky menu. The motion sensing is hit or miss. I have yet to get a accurate triggering from the motion feature with all kinds of different setting and grids.. After calling to get help with motion sensing and a couple other problems it became obvious that the three people I talked to has no experience with this system or the cameras and was searching through the book to tell me the same exact thing I have already read. Technical support isn't very helpful only because they are not technical people that knows this equipment . They are friendly and try to be helpful but put in a difficult situation trying to help with something they know nothing about. and the manual isn't very helpful. 2 terabytes equals about 7 days recording before the hard drive is full and starts overwriting. Still up in the air on whether I am going to keep it or not. This would not be functional for email alerts as all you would get is blank pictures unless the motion feature gets more accurate and alarms a lot for no reason on all settings tried so far. . Flir pc is ok but consumes massive amounts of processer have a amd dual core 2.0 4 gb vista and cant run more than 3 main stream windows without locking up. I have a fast router and internet connection 45mbs and system is still slow to pc with 144mbs wireless. I phone app seems to work around the house wifi and haven't tried to use the internet connection yet.would expect it to be slow unless hooked wifi with phone.
The images are good which is the reason I haven't sent this back yet.I suspect there is a problem with the NVR causing the pictures to pulse slightly and defeats the motion sensing section because it works on picture change as most do. If replacing the NVR doesn't correct the problem it will go back. I have a pc based security motion detection remote web cam that is about 99.9 percent accurate but no night IR. This system accuracy isn't even close to that and is frustrating because you would think that for the cost would have something better than it has.The purpose of having an accurate motion sensing so you don't have to view hours of useless video or motion triggers with nothing there.

I am writing this in exchange for the 1 year additional warranty offered for a review and an additional 6 monhts for registering additional to the the standard 1 year with the equipment.

We had been watching the various Lorex promotions for almost a year now, hoping something would come along within budget and before our current camera system completely failed. Black Friday sale was it, and we received it on the following Tuesday-- exceeding expectations for taking the free shipping option.

Our old setup is a 600TVL (768x494), but it can't support recording that on all channels-- you had to pick which cameras you wanted higher resolution and manage the frames per second and resolution up to the recording capacity. With this system, we're doing 6 of the 8 channels (all we need) at full 1080p-- the improvement in clarity is astonishing. We've been bench testing the unit for almost a month now and the setup documentation is very helpful. Only one minor issue with configuring the remote access via a mobile device, but a quick call to support had my issue (it was me... sorry Support) resolved in a few minutes. So we have everything we need to do an efficient permanent install.

The web interface/mobile interface is quite robust, still learning how to do everything, but compared to our old setup, you can do everything remotely if you want to-- very helpful. We will be using both the HDMI and VGA monitor outputs and simultaneous functions is very adequate on both. Very much appreciate that you can record in 1080p, yet connect a display that is 720p and a VGA monitor.

With the 2 additional cameras we purchased, we honestly believe that there is not a better system for equivalent money out there. With a 60 day return policy, we were assured that if this system didn't do everything we wanted it to, we'd send it back.

Sorry Lorex, we're keeping it :) Nice job, excellent system!

I have never had a security camera system before, but after much research, I decided on the Lorex HD system. I bought it on Black Friday and got it 1/2 price. The camera clarity is awesome and way better than non-HD set ups. So far no problems.

I purchased an LNR408 system. The system was well packed for shipping. The cameras have a good quality feel and look. Hardest part of installation is running the cables to the attic. POE makes setup easy otherwise. The system simply works as soon as powered up and cameras are connected.. Video quality during daylight hours is extremely good. The cameras are very sensitive and I have been experimenting with various values in motion detection panel to get it working just right. Due to the location of one camera at the front of my house I am having issues with continual motion detection when there is any snow, rain or even fog - especially when it is dark and the camera is using the IR LEDs.. It appears that the cameras will need to be sheltered in order to work correctly in this type of weather. I am not convinced that it will ever function correctly in an exposed location. The ability to email motion detection with a still photo attachment is very good. The downloadable manuals are quite good, but could have some additional information and examples about the various event and network settings. Concerning support: I did call tech. support for an issue with using Lorex mail. Calls always seemed to indicate at least a 20 minute wait, so I opened a ticket on the website. I have not had a response after two days. I was able to get email working using my ISP's SMTP server instead of Lorex mail. The smart phone app (FLIR Cloud) works quite well - I am using the Android version.

Very good product and was very easy to setup. Wish there was a way to delete recording without having to format drive or reset. Should be able to select videos by time periods, i.e. a month, week, etc. Had to play with the system and figure out a lot of things on my own although the manual is pretty good but didn't cover things like deleting recordings. Overall I rate the product high.

Bought this camera system for 1/2 off during black Friday. Never owned a security camera before but did purchase two lower end models to try last year but I wasn't happy with either one so I returned them to the store. So far, I love the quality of the color images especially during the day or at night when there's light. In total darkness, however, the images are somewhat grainy and in black and white only.

I lowered one star because the instructions designed for this model wasn't even matched up with the features of this unit. In other words, it is somewhat useless so I had to call tech support to get the unit setup so it would recognize the cameras (wait time 20 min). I called a second time very early this morning to learn how to schedule the recordings and my call was unanswered promptly. My Indian tech support was at times hard to understand and he didn't know how to change the camera name but I have since figured it out myself.

The 2nd star I lowered has to do with the FLIR Cloud on my Andriod and wife's Iphone. At times, we could not connect to it at all so I had to reset the unit. I have no idea what the problem is. But once it's working, it's great! I have not yet installed my cameras; I wanted to test to make sure everything works perfectly before I'll crawl up the attic to string the wires to the desire areas.

I received an email from Lorex yesterday saying that if I review the camera, I would get an additional year of warranty and so this is why I'm writing this now. I hope they'd honor this. I would like to be able to update my review later once my system is in place for at least a month and hope to give it a 5 star rating. So far so good though, I'm satisfied with the purchase but still feel a bit uncertainty because I don't know it will perform in the long run.

This set up is the best one I've ever had. I've had one previous to this that was nowhere near the quality as this one! It was Eco black box with wireless cameras that had a lot if lag and picture was not that good. This new one blows the other one away. Never going lower then 1080!!! Lorex is the best and great customer support! 2t hd 4 1080 cameras. 8 channel. A+

The 720p cameras and 2TB DVR works great. I connected the DVR to my 1080p HDTV and the clarity in both the day and night vision views were fantastic. I received several different box shipments and did all of the installation. The instruction and manuals are great but you need some skills in wiring maybe not for a novice. I installed my wiring in the walls and ceilings. I would recommend this system as being affordable with great features and capabilities.

I had an older surveillance system at my house and I wanted to upgrade to HD. As the house was already wired with Siamese cable, the HD-SDI system was a very cost effective way to upgrade to HD, no need for any new cables. Switching out the cameras and the DVR was very easy. Once I turned the system on, I had it up and running on my phone and ipad in less than 3 minutes with the Stratus feature, which I was familiar with and had used in the past. The camera quality when viewing on an HD monitor is excellent, much better than even the 960H unit I had previously. The ability to zoom in is great and provided very good image quality. Also, the HD-SDI cameras have a better field of view, giving more coverage, but you don't lose anything as the zoom allows close up of anything on the screen. As expected due to bandwidth, the quality on the phone and ipad is just OK. You definitely do not have the same clarity as on the monitor, but that is to be expected. Bottom line, I would highly recommend buying the HD system as it is significantly better image quality than other systems. If you already have the Siamese cables run, buy this. For a new install, I would go with the POE system as Cat 5 cables are an easier and cleaner install. Both systems will give the same quality image, and are well worth the slightly higher price than the non HD systems.

Could any users give some more info regarding how long the 2T of memory lasts before it is written over at highest resolution? Does the system allow some cameras to be action activated and some others to record at full 1080 res? I'll rate this as five stars if it is at least a month of recordings.

Received the cameras/DVR -- everything was packaged perfectly and in total working order. It is important to really follow all directions, but it was cumbersome to have to read the instructions on-line versus a paper manual. It was fairly easy to set up. It does have a GREAT picture quality and the night vision is really good as well. Glad we went with the 1080P on this one. Cable length was long enough as well. Overall, very happy with the product so far and am glad we purchased a Lorex w/6 cameras.

This is my first camera security system, I purchased it in July of 2013, after carefully studying the manual I easily installed it and had it up and running without requiring assistance from tech support, except to use the iPhone app. Tech support was very helpful, there was hardly any wait to talk to someone and the system has run flawlessly for seven months now. Both the laptop control panel and iphone app have worked as hoped as well. I could not be happier with the system, its ease of set-up or the quality of the picture I get through the cameras.

I purchased this system on behalf of our Mobile Home Park. We have an exit gate and are concerned that at times someone is forcing it open. This camera system seemed like a great solution. While we haven't installed it yet, we have tested it and are very happy with the results. However the start up procedure could be better explained. For example nothing is mentioned about using the mouse. When we entered the user name and tried to go to password we couldn't figure out what to do. We had to phone Tech. Support. A simple mention of using the mouse would have saved a lot of time and frustration. We were following directions. What is delaying our installation right now relates to what distance we can go. We would like to set up the DVR in our office. The distance is about 500 feet. We are looking into this. One thing that would have been nice is a zoom lens on the cameras. In fact while the picture is beautiful, it would have been nice to focus in more on a narrower view. At this time I would give it a rating of 4. Hopefully Tech. support can answer phones more quickly. I am paying by the minute on my Cell.

PRO: This is the third Lorex system I have purchased, one for my self with four HD cameras, one wireless one with two SD cameras for a customer, then one more for my self with six HD cameras, but that can handle eight. I needed more cameras, and the four ones I have will work with this system. I am very impress with the over all system. CON: Setting the zones is a great idea, so I can detect when a car pulls into my driveway, and have it send me an email with a picture. BUT it is too sensitive, even leaves blowing across my driveway will trigger it, and a squirrel. They need to provide an update to the firmware that would allow an entire block to be full (Due to a car, truck, etc) before triggering.

Great system, originally purchased an analog system(from a different mfr.)and could not make out any detail. We decided to give this system a chance with HD. So far so good with great clarity. The only drawback is the dvr cooling fan is loud, as long as it's not installed in your bedroom, this is a great system.

I bought this system to watch the house while away and deter vandals in the neighborhood. Installation was pretty easy for the most part. I have still not figured out how to hook up the DDNS server so I can access from work. The software is a little cumbersome since you have to use a mouse to type on a virtual keyboard. I have the LHD200 series DVR which is the newer system. I am still plying with camera views and settings. Thought I had a broken channel until I realized I had set a "Covert" setting that blacks out the live view. Overall I am happy with the system so far for the price I paid and the quality of the cameras. Customer Service is a little slow but they do make contact and help when I have reached out to them. I would recommend this to anyone interested in a good system that is relatively easy to set up.
