Placed this around my home and surrounding area, works pretty well! Sometimes the wireless signal can be a bit spotty, might be due to the atmospheric interference though. But the durability and temperature range is great, especially for the hot summers that we have here.

After two break-in attempts I decided it was time to purchase a home monitoring system. In March 2016, I purchased the Lorex HD84 Home Monitoring System which included four wireless cameras and remote connectivity. This system is truly worth every penny. The cameras were easy to install and pairing the cameras to the monitor was simple to do. The monitoring system from Lorex has provided peace of mind, whether I am at work or after dark, the cameras provide clear video recordings to both the monitor and to the SD Pro App. Thank you for providing a system that provides my family and I with a sense of security.

UPDATE: it finally seems to be resolved, and it does work well now.---
I purchased the LW2960 series 4 cameras/monitor. That was 2 years ago. I have tried repeatedly over that time to get things adjusted because the equipment did not meet the advertised operation. They had sent me a new monitor and two new cameras, no night recording with those 2 cameras, and monitor would not except the undated firmware to operate correctly in recording mode. This helped correct most of the problems, however one of the two new cameras they sent to me went down altogether, and now the monitor will not hold the recording schedule that is programmed in. Calling them doesn't really resolve the situation, because they have to revert the situation to some supervisors, who never return phone calls, and will not acknowledge any of the problems. Getting a hold of these people is a challenge, and now I've about given up on trying to get any of these issues resolved. There are other cameras out there on the market that are much better supported that these, suggest that anyone interested in cameras go in that direction first, or otherwise hope that they operate properly or that replacments can be done easily.

Thank you for your feedback. We apologize for any difficulty you experienced and we were happy to resolve this for you.

Some of the worst experiences I have ever had dealing with a purchase. When this company makes mistakes, they totally do not give a damn about correcting the problem. after speaking to one of the sales rep the guy sold me the wrong product on 6/20/16. I have put in serval tickets trying get this resolved. Calling getting placed on hold by the sales department and as I wait the calls get disconnected. this is totally frustrating and I will continue to contact them to I get this resolved.

Pros: Unit setup was easy and wireless cameras have great range. Night vision is very good. Access with mobile devices great. Good system but if you have a warranty issue, good luck! Read Cons.

Cons: Purchased an HD64 system, open box unit. In the description of an open box unit, it states "These items are fully operational, and have been rigorously tested by our technicians to ensure that these products meet our standards of quality, and are then carefully packaged for resale." I guess my unit was not rigorously tested because the monitor unit was defective and needs replacement. It takes forever to get something replaced. My replacement was approved on June 7 and still has not shipped. The time for replacement is to long for a security system, if used for security of a home or business. Poor replacement process. I hope they improve this process, but doubt it.

Thank you for your feedback. Our apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused. We are happy to have resolved this for you.

I purchased this product around Christmas of 2015. The setup was extremely easy, and the connections have never failed. The battery life on the monitor isn't the greatest, but can be made better by putting it in standby mode. My biggest issue is the sensitivity of the motion activation. There are times when the sounds of birds or cars outside will activate the cameras constantly. I simply just place the monitor in the mode that shows all 4 cameras in a window pane type mode. The listening and talking mode is excellent.

No instruction manual listed for my particular model. When I spoke to customer service, she had me download another one which is not very much like the one I bought. I think that I'll like it once I get used to it and understand it. For no reason, the color fades to black and white and I'll get a notification of not in range.

We're sorry to hear you are having difficulty. You should find the manual under the Documentation tab of the product page. Please email us back for assistance. Our technical support team would be happy to assist you as well and can be reached at 1-877-755-6739.

DO NOT BY ANY PRODUCT FROM THIS COMPANY. They do not respond to messages until you have opened several tickets. my unit did not come with an owners manual. after several attempts they finally said they could not send me one but I could print one and they sent me a link. not only was the manual 82 pages but it was for the wrong system.
next i read their description and did other research on the product. it says you can download an app on your smartphone so you can watch things when you are not home.
It does not say anywhere that you need an ethernet connection to get the app.
I live in a trailer, I am a snowbird and wanted to watch my place when I was gone. I have a mobile wifi. SO, I can not get the app. you would think they would say that in there description when it says no internet connection needed.

Not sure how the system works because I have no instructions to hook it up. even if they send the right link, 82 pages on a home printer worth of ink?????
I paid a lot of money for this system. I am totally disappointed with the company.
Oh and the model I got is not what they are listing here. asking for reviews.
Mine is a LW2772H got it almost 2 months ago, really wish they had sent everything. I can put up the cameras but can't run the display and I need the app.
these folks are a joke.

We're sorry to hear this product does not meet your needs. An internet connection is required in order to transmit the images to your app, our apologies for any misunderstanding. We have offered our assistance, please email us back or call us at 1-888-425-6739.

We just recently purchased a Home Monitoring system with 4 wireless Cameras #HD84. This unit replaced a Lorex 2 wireless camera system. We chose to upgrade to this 4 camera system for 2 more cameras and the remote connectivity program. The cameras were numbered 1,2,3 &4 and they were very easy to install. Basically plug them in and they were al set to go. Downloaded the app on my I phone, created an on line account and all working is described. The set up was very easy. Great instructions, easy to follow.

I spent several weeks reviewing security camera systems and I bought this so my daughter would be able to monitor her horses: 1) when she is not a home and 2) have a recording if something happens to them at any time. We installed two of the cameras about 550' from the receiver (with only 1 exterior wall) and we receive and great picture with no interruption. We are happy with the quality and cameras. We also enjoy the ability to see the cameras through the internet even when we are not home. I have even used the internet viewing without wifi on the mobile device and it still worked well. Very pleased with the product and very easy to setup.

I reviewed a number of camera systems before ordering this one. So far so good for price of 4 camera HD wireless system. Everything working as advertised. Signal is good with three cameras outside and one inside. Giver this system 4 1/2 stars so far. Will see how it holds up. Only downside I've seen so far is Trouble Shooting section in on-line user guide is very limited. I could not get viewer screen to come on. I ended up pushing reset button and it came on. Have had no further problem. Night vision light capture is excellent. Speaker system and audio pick-up seem OK too. As stated in other reviews, the toggle switch on the viewer is very sensitive. Also would recommend Lorex to put gripping dimples on side of viewer to prevent dropping viewer when handled, it's slippery. Have downloaded SD Pro and tried this out. Works fine on my Android system. So far would definitely recommend system. Interested to see how it holds up.

I have been using the Lorex LW2962H wireless camera system for two months now and would highly recommend it with 5 stars except for one drawback, the amount of white noise filtering that is performed during night time “video motion detection”. The video motion detection technique looks for differences in video images to detect motion, and in the day time, can be very sensitive (sensitivity is user adjustable).
At night, motion detection is greatly reduced by Lorex to filter out “white noise” and even at its highest sensitivity level, cannot detect vehicle headlights at a distance greater than 50 feet.
Lorex should consider boosting the night time “video motion detection” sensitivity, accepting the possibility of some false triggering, while allowing the user to adjust sensitivity if desired (as in day time viewing).

I purchased my four camera wireless system from Lorax website I received it in five days and it was just what they said,easy to set up.Powered all 4 cameras and tried them before installing them and got immediate picture on two cameras and had to pair the other two with the receiver, which was very easy to do.Permanent installation was easy, just took the portable receiver with me and watched the picture as I positioned the cameras.Still familerising myself with the motion and distance settings for motion activation, overall I would recommend this system.

I had an inexpensive 1 camera wireless system that went bad. I wanted a 4 cam that would work outside. I had no idea of what brand or features to get. As luck and good fortune would have it, I went with the LOREX HD84. What can I say; easy setup, outstanding images, and great night vision. Nothing could be better. It needs a 6 star rating. THANKS LOREX.

The system is easy to setup, just mount the cameras and use the LCD screen in order to pair the cameras. The cameras and LCD have a good Wifi reach. I did not like the fact that the LCD screen must be connected to an Ethernet cable in order to connect the SD Pro app to the system. Currently I have an issue with pushing motion notifications to my iPhone. I called Lorex several in order to resolve the issue and they offered to mail me a new LCD screen.

Installing the cameras are simple and running the power was simple. The setting up of the monitor was quick and easy. Good clear pictures from cameras during the day and night vision is also good. Audio is very clear and you can hear sound from a good distance. I would recommend a Lorex security camera system to anyone looking to buy a good security camera system. I bought the wireless system so I did not have to run the cables only the power cords and this system has great features ( HD84 ).

Works great. Very functional. Paired the cameras as soon as it arrived. Plugged into outside power sources to insure they would communicate with the receiver before I made permanent. System was very easy to set up.

I use the iPhone app to view any camera remotely. The only issue has to do with alerts while remote. Not sure how to configure since I have it set up to record on motion. Don't want to get alerted every time we walk outside

I have recommended already to a couple of friends. Much better than my previous hard wired system from another manufacturer.

We purchased the LW2962H, plus 2 Additional Cameras and are very pleased with it's easy installation, instructions and features. It was a little extra work to run the power through our attic, because of the sloped roof, but otherwise else it's very easy to mount to the outside walls. I would warn you that the cameras are partial plastic, so when tightening the screws be careful or you will ruin the screws, but they also have outer grips for tightening.

I feel that my family and home is safe and it deters possible thieves from thinking about doing anything to our home. The Monitor is very easy to work with and very clear, so are the cameras.

This is a highly recommended system and I would purchase another one again!

Cameras and screen look and work ok. Not a high end system, nor high end price. Good vale for dollars spent. Shipping estimate was wrong and arrived a week are original estimate. Easy to set up and run out of the box. Quite disappointed with app as only allows to remote view channel or camera 1. Fix this and I will be very happy, as I am sure it is some easy code to remote in and control unit. As is I would have bought different system that allows remote viewing of all 4 cameras. As is 3/5 stars. Slow shipping, and not all functionality that I was expecting when purchased. A bit of a let down on this purchase. I would like to exchange if possible.

I am able to watch the dogs while they are out back and see anyone out front at the door. The intercom is a nice touch. During the day, the camera works well. However, at night, the night vision can be improved. Overall, I would recommend this to a friend. Easy set-up and app works well.

I love my new security system. It was very easy to setup and, with a few rehearsals, located and understood the various functions. I owned a previous Lorex system, but it did not have internet capability, and the clarity was not even close to this system. It does very well at night. I was surprised. I totally love the portability of the system, both within the house, and via my cell phone. So far this systems gets a 5 star review.

System works OK. Night vision blurry could not recognize no person. Day time works good. Control panel works ok. Touch buttons touchy. Main issue for my star rating is interference with WIFI. I have a 24mbs system when cameras are on drops my WIFI down to 1.5 to 3.0mbs. When plunged into eithernet cable less than 1.0mbs. Lorex needs to fix this. Should not have to buy dual band router.

I purchased this system to replace a video doorbell from a different manufacturer. The cameras with this system provide much better quality and are a good value for the price. I set one of the cameras up by the front door and use the two way intercom to screen visitors I don't know without having to go to the door. Both the video and audio are very good. The system was easy to set up, and I like having the monitor next to my desk so that I can see what is going on. I bought an additional 36GB SD card to record video when the cameras detect motion. I have been using it over a month and still have more than 75% capacity left. There is a setting to start recording over old video files once the SD card is full if you don't want to put in a new card. I'm very happy with the system so far, and plan to purchase an additional add-on camera to put in my back yard. I haven't used the mobile app yet, but plan on doing so in the near future.

The product worked flawlessly for 4 months and then quit without a warning. Went through a laborious process of getting a replacement. The replacement seems to be working well for a week now. In summary it is a technically good product with limited reliability. Pros: ===== 1. Easy to setup. 2. No interference with baby monitoring systems. 3. Easy network access of captured data. Cons: ===== 1. Long-term reliability suspect. Will update review in case of change. 2. Replacement process tedious. Product's impact will improve a lot if the monitor can be connected wirelessly to existing network.

My wife just opened a store that sells high quality hand made items. This is a new venture and neither of us has been in retail before. I installed the cameras and set everything up without a problem. Went home the first night and set up my phone and tablet to view the monitors, and it worked very well. over the next few days I experimented with talking to her from my phone through the camera and this worked fine. She just turned and waved to the camera with a not too happy look on her face. Also can listen in on conversations in the store which spoiled a surprise she was planning for me. The video quality of playback from the SD card is very good. Set up of recording schedule with a combination of motion detected recording for the days the store is not open and time slot recording for the time the store is open. Seemed straight forward to understand. Overall very satisfied.

Bought the Lorex LW2962H after much research. Had another brand for a few years and nothing but trouble. Tech service was poor. Called Lorex tech support once and not with a problem but to ask couple of questions. They were quick to answer the phone - less than 5 minute wait. Totally satisfied with their service. The Lorex system is working better than I expected and was very easy to set up and program. I would highly recommend this system to anyone. Very, very pleased.

I purchased the LW2962H and 2 cameras, I monitor my animals, cows,pigs,sheep,horses,for when there having there young, also for predators roaming around, when I,m away from home I can still see what's going on around the animals, getting 2 more cameras next month. Did I mention my family in England can see the cameras rolling, and the mic and speakers on each camera are a plus, good job Lorex.

i bought this on line at amazon and its the perfect camera because i needed the audio and the video. I wish they would add audio to every system. this was so easy to set up and use i even accidentally cut the wires on one of the camera's and spliced it back together and it still is working perfectly. This will be the only cameras system i will use until they add audio to others. My only complaint is to allow more GB of storage on the micro chips. And to allow to plug up via usb to your computer or drive for storage. giving you both options on how you transfer your video over

Love this system. Use it for monitoring our sheds, property, and pets. Especially love that I can set it up to record when there is motion only. There are 3 settings for motion detection. The scan mode is awesome for preserving your battery. When motion is detected the monitor turns on for 15 secs so you can see when there is activity on a camera. You can then turn on the monitor if you want to investigate further. The intercom is awesome for 2 way communication when needed. Cons: Night vision is blurry Joystick is hard to manage

I am still in process of setting up. Just have it up to windows until spring. Very satisfied so far. Only improvement I see is the camera only tilts up or down. Would be great if it would also adjust side to side. I tried a camera outfit from another company that worked through my computer. No good. Having a separate monitor is the only way to go. Sd card would not work so they are sending me a new monitor. That is the best part. Tech. support is wonderful, and they speak English!! In spring pretty sure I will add a couple of more cameras and maybe a range extender.

Just brought this system and so far we like it, video are very clear, everyone complains about night vision but remember but I think its clear as can be. The only complaints I have, that the monitor has to be connected to a modem ( I thought it was WIFI enabled ), and since the computer is in our bedroom I have to turn off the monitor and by doing so I don't receive or can not see the cams from the app as it disables the cams. Hopefully Lorex can do something about this. Also, the joystick is very sensitive ( this is a minor complaint though).

We have always wanted a security system as there have been many robberies reported around the area, but have been hesitant to hook up a security system on our own. We saw the wired monitors at Costco and we couldn't believe the clarity of the cameras and decided to look on line to see if wireless systems were also available. We ordered the LW 491 HD and hooked it all up within a couple of hours at the most! Very simple and fun to do! We downloaded the app on my Droid and were able to see what the cameras view was like when we mounted them outside the house and garages so it was in the exact spot we chose. All you need is an electric box where you want to mount each camera. The monitor is easy to use and we stored the Lorex User Guide in our Favorites File on our desk top for a fast and easy reference. The only draw back was I wish we would have upgraded a bit more and bought additional cameras. I can go to work or leave on the weekends sleeping much easier knowing I can watch what is going on at home on my smart phone. And the best thing is you are not needing to pay for a security company who only calls alerts in, when I can do the job myself and see the culprit. Your smartphone will show you movies and alerts if something looks suspicious! Great product for a affordable price!

I did much research before purchasing the LW 491HD system. I have had this system for two weeks and so far, I am very pleased with the ease of installation and operation. The cameras are decent and I am confident that I will be happy in the long run for what I wanted in a security camera system for the home. Great product for the price, affordable for the average family. Love being able to check on the dog and to see who is at the front door before opening it. Looking forward to using the two way and audio feature. The only drawback is I wish I could add more cameras (4 included) but you can get a higher priced system with 6 or more cameras. Also , viewing live video on IPhone is great but looking at recorded video is not so good depending on your internet speed. Overall , great product for a good price!

After getting electric connection boxes installed in the attic for power to the cameras the rest was very easy and set up was user friendly. I printed the User Manual off the internet and it provided lots of information on the cameras and how to best set them up. I would recommend this system without hesitation. The Sales Rep I spoke to on the phone was very well informed and answered my many questions with great patience. I had no idea what system would be best for me but after our discussion, I was secure in ordering what he recommended. Thank You Lorex Sales Person!

This is our 2nd Lorex Wireless System. While very pleased with our LW2710, we wanted to get away from Skype as it was very cumbersome to operate and only displayed one channel. Additionally, we wanted to expand to 4 cameras and view channels from a larger monitor. So far the LW491HD has fit the bill quite nicely. Easy to install, great resolution from the cameras both day and night, and so much easier to view remotely when we are out of town or just curious about what the dog is doing. For basic home surveillance, the Lorex system is hard to beat!

I purchased the LW491HD system a few weeks ago and so far it has worked great. I agree with most of the previous reviews except I have not had any issues with night time recording. I selected this system based on the advertised range. I have one camera mounted on an out building about 150’ from my house to monitor my driveway. The camera has not had connectivity issues and on the most sensitive setting it was picking up traffic on the main road 500’ away. On the medium setting it picks up cars about 200’ down the driveway which is more desirable for my use. I do not have high speed internet available, so I did not think I could take advantage of the remote access. I do have an iPhone 4S that broadcasts a “hotspot” that I use for my laptop. After some research I purchased a CradlePoint MBR95 router. This router will connect to my iPhone and the Lorex system connects to the router via the supplied cable. With this setup the remote access works perfect. Even though I did not purchase this system based on this feature. Once you start using remote access you’ll love it.

I purchased the LW491 HD system on the Lorex website. Overall, the purchasing experience was good but there was some confusing regarding US and Canadian funds. System installation was relatively straight forward. The one issue was getting power to the cameras. Pairing was straightforward. My only complaint was adjusting the camera position using the plastic housing on the camera system. I have installed motion lighting near the cameras and I find the lighting improves the night motion pictures from the Lorex LW491 HD. Overall, a decent system with a reasonable price.

My wife and I had been considering installing security cameras for years. Seems like we checked them out every time we made a trip to Costco, but I the idea of wiring up a system seemed daunting. The wireless connectivity feature of this system was a big plus and it made set up very simple and gives you a lot of flexibility for camera placement. Picture quality is very good and I was amazed that the infrared cameras work even it total darkness. Before I had them placed, my two extra cameras we running in my garage for a couple of days. There is no light in there at all, but you could see everything. Pretty cool. The controls on the screen are very intuitive and easy to operate.

Easy to set up; pairing the cameras was quick & easy and system seems to function properly. It would be helpful if they included a way to position cameras on a bookshelf; somewhere that did not need to be permanently installed, though it's not that difficult to jury-rig a way to hold the camera. It would also have been helpful if they included a full manual in the box; not just the basics of getting the system up & running.

It is like having a system that works half the time. Lorex Technical Support says they are working on a software up grade but they don`t know when it will be out. I am not sure what to do,wait or send the system back.

WOW! - The LW491HD is our second Lorex system, and it is quite superior to our original ECO4. The LW491HD is truly easy to set up, pairing the cameras was a snap, and the pictures are very clear. Because our cameras are external, we don't use the "motion" feature. Every time the wind blows there is motion from the trees, so we just let it record continuously. We also appreciate the fact that it doesn't require all the antennas and space of our earlier system. Keeps things a lot neater and much more accessible. We did buy extra SD cards so that we can just switch them out and then transfer to a storage server at our convenience. Hopefully, it will be able to tolerate what is expected to be a harsh winter.Thank you, Lorex, for improving your products. We definitely recommend this system.

I brought the wireless home monitoring system 720p cameras directly from Lorex website. My good friend has recommended this same system. It came in quickly and I was quite happy about it. I got it setup and configure in no time without reading instructions; that alone was impressive. The picture resolutions were sharp and clear; even viewing on it on wifi. Although, I am not sure how good this system is when I am getting ready to install cameras around the house; I am a bit concerned of a distance from cameras to the base unit. I'll post it later and let you all know. One thing though, I can't tell which cameras send out a warning alert message. Perhaps I need to read into the manual and/or instructions. thank you very much. I recommend this great product to everyone.

LOREX-Tech-Inc-Rev-14-o16 RATE: 4.8 of 5. Wireless home monitoring system with 720p cameras. Model no.: LW491HD Four (4) cameras with 9? monitor/base-unit with 8GB MicroSDXC card. (I use a 64GB MicroSDXC card.) The unit was delivered within the allotted days predicted. It was securely packed fortunately, as the shipper dropped/crushed one top corner. (No enclosed boxes were damaged at all.) Due to personal obligations, it took about a week to install units after initial check out. The cameras produce a clear image in sun, overcast or night. Daytime images display vivid colors. The night images are competent and useful. (Do not expect NCIS images ? not a TV studio.) Individual camera shots are great. The quad display is more than useful ? day or night. The MicroSDXC card (via included Adapter) allows file transfer to a Computer. The transfer is convenient. The images are excellent. I am currently relaying on thermal detection only. This is good, as one camera catches the Flag; another has shrubs in view. The rating penalty (0.2) is because this unit does NOT communicate with my PC win-7&8 (yet-?). Last Dec., I purchased the Lorex ECO-LH140 with 8 cameras. That unit functions well with my GB home network. The network recognizes this unit as 192.168.1.77, but this unit does not reciprocate. (Had I read the description more carefully, I would had realized my Dell Venue 8 Pro w/Win8.1 would not be compatible.) My units are all exterior. I use a 3-Gal Roughneck - upside-down; trim out a narrow end ? use to reinforce opposite end; trim the cover to reinforce the top(bottom), also with 3/8?x3?x7? wood strip; mount camera through narrow end to ½? x3?x5? wood piece; Then Whole Assemble mounts to a wall. CONS: (1) Thumb Screws are Brittle Plastic ? Do Not Try to Adjust With Flat Head Screwdriver. Use Blunt Headed Plyers, if necessary. I Used 10? Adjustable Plyers for the Adjustment Ring. (2) The included Screws Are Thin and Designed to Mount in Sheetrock. I used a 3/16 drill bit in a 14.4V drill/driver (no power unit) to gently ream out the three mounting holes; a 1/8? drill bit to pre-start the screw hole; three 1 ¼ x8 deck screws - Hand Driven. I highly recommend Lorex Technology and this unit- LW491HD (also, ECO-LH140). ajD 10/16/14 ajDubre@snet.net

Set up was easy but the nuts and bolts of performance are most important in my opinion. The camera brackets are terrible compared to the old style. You cannot aim exactly where you want like before (ball system) but instead they use a detent system where the two sides match and lock. I had several instances where one position was too high, and the next detent position was too low. VERY annoying and made it hard (impossible?) to get just right in order to cover the area desired yet not have the road in the view (and thereby cause false alerts). The IR is pretty grainy. In HD or VGA mode. My 3 year old Lorex system (that this was being replaced by) had a MUCH BETTER night picture! Twice as good. For me the most important thing is motion recording and triggering. I am using for security. Well, this either is full of false triggers (on high) or , on medium, will not trigger unless the motion is close up. The motion detection recording triggers EVERY morning on EACH of the 4 cameras when they switch from IR to daylight view. Every time. When set to motion record and scan (with screen off) - when a camera triggers the screen comes on for only about 5 seconds, not 15. So the it triggers and you look and the monitor turns off. This system is not even close to the older system in terms of reliability and "bugs". If these bugs could be worked out it has potential. If not, I will be returning for a refund. I tried talking to Lorex and they claim to have 'never heard of these problems' (LOL, maybe they should read the reviews on their own website?), then tried to talk me into a more expensive system and tell me I should be using 'wired cameras'. Which is silly because ALL I want the system to do it what they claim it will do.

Well, I've written Lorex about night detection and I've been told they are working on a firmware update to fix it. In the mean time, I've been forced to purchase 64 gig sad card (being forced to record continuously). Well, I've purchased THREE of them because I keep getting "SD card error, reformat SD Card" displayed on the screen. After purchasing addition cards (not cheap) as well as extension cord to power the cameras, many hours of setting up and testing, it's clear this system is not properly tested. I hope to have Lorex offer reimbursement for the product soon or a firmware update SOON or I'm returning this, hopefully at their cost. I've tried to like this, but it just simply does not work as advertised. Being forced to purchase bigger cards that the console can't handle it the tipping point. Lorex, you have my email address, plz contact me so can send a pre-postage paid box to return your product and please do not charge me for returning a system that was obviously installed and then taken down. I'll update here as well as a popular tech blog I work of any offered resolution. I'm sad this system just won't work. Not for me, but as advertised. Please refine this so that future buyers don't waste many hundreds of dollars.

Overall this is a good system. The signal strength from the cameras is strong and has good range. The Android app for remote viewing works well. The 720 HD image quality is pretty good in daylight. But there are some big problems. 1. The motion detection pre-event recording feature does not work. It's supposed to automatically record the 5 seconds prior motion being detected. I've tested thoroughly and it seems to only start recording from the moment motion is detected, not 5 seconds prior. This is not a problem with slow moving subjects, but with fast moving subjects, sometimes the subject is almost out of the frame by the time the system starts recording. 2. The wireless signal from the cameras or the monitor (or both) interfere with my WiFi router signal. It doesn't completely knock out my WiFi like a microwave oven can sometimes. But it definitely slows down my WiFi noticeably. If I unplug the cameras and monitor, my WiFi network speeds back up again. 3. The night mode IR video is grainy and somewhat blurry compared with the nice sharp daytime video. Other than these 3 negatives, this system is pretty good. Night mode motion detection does work for me, but it is definitely much less sensitive to motion at night. It takes a lot more motion to trigger the recording at night. The 5 second pre-event would have been useful to help make up for the night mode motion detection weakness.

In regards to the problem of night vision detection and it not recording, well the person on the phone put in a request to Tech Support to call me back to discuss this. I have some concerns that I will only hear that they are aware of the problem (Please read current reviews from others) that they are "optimistic that LOREX will have a solution". I hope that they do resolve the problem quickly as this system is worthless if they don't. If they do, then I can say that I love how it works and you will be very happy with the overall product.

Received the 720HD monitor and four cameras on 9-29-2014. Out of the box the system was easy to set up and operate. One of the four cameras failed in Motion detect mode during initial setup. It continually recorded facing a near wall without any motion to detect. Two days later another camera did the same thing. Remaining two cameras work fine. Returning the two defective cameras for replacement. Disappointing first week of operation.

I was happy when I set this up but quickly learned (as apparently others have as well) that events are not detected in night vision mode. So, I am forced to record continuously just to capture any events (the reason we want cameras, to RECORD events) and that just fills up the SD card very rapidly. I have submitted a ticket to LOREX in hope that there will be a firmware upgrade to fix this obvious problem and am awaiting a reply. I'll repost after support contacts me to offer a solution or just tell me to live with a not-as-advertised system. I like the product except for this so I'll average my rating for now but am optimistic that LOREX will have a solution.

Best service, and product. Accidentally short circuited the monitor and got a replacement without having to send it in. Beautiful product, and great service. Something I'm never regret paying for.

I recently purchased the LW491HD which is really the LW2962H with 2 extra cameras. I have only setup two cameras so far and It was very easy to setup and has a very good picture. I tested another camera and its just a matter of pairing them up no big deal. The app for the phone and tablet works very well too, its nice to be able to view what's going on at home when I'm away. The motion detection system is VERY sensitive even on the low setting. The power cables could be longer I have ordered some extensions through Amazon so I can hook up the other 2 cameras. The wireless signal is always good and I have one camera going through3 walls and a floor so very pleased with the reception, have yet to see it drop. The image quality at night is OK but would be hard to make out someone's face at times. My motion detection is working at night so not sure about that other review stating theirs is not working. Bottom line if you looking for a good wireless camera system this would be the one to buy.

Hello everyone, I recently purchased the LW491HD unit and was very excited. Setting it up was very simple and straightforward and was impressed with the equipment. Unfortunately we found a glitch with the software and noticed that the motion record does not work at night with the night vision. After speaking with technical support we were informed that they are currently working on fixing this problem and we are looking forward to the resolution.

Hi Everyone, I have to start out by saying that I am not usually someone who rates products or purchases. I buy something and I expect it to work! In this case however, I need to tell you that this camera system is fantastic. I am a tough customer and I am naturally skeptical. Well, with this product you should not be! I received it in 4 days, set it up in a matter of minutes, and enjoy watching the video on my phone via the app. The app is amazing! Even over cellular you can see amazing sharp video, hear the sound in the room, and even talk through the camera. While I am on the train to work in the morning, I can see my kids and tell them to have a great day. I have only installed 2 cameras thus far and will set up the external cameras this weekend. But, do not waiver. Just buy this product as it does everything it is supposed to can compared to other systems the price is great! You will not be sorry!!

I purchased the LW2962H. Thank you Lorex for finally making available a system with everything I need in a system at an affordable price! I have purchased 2 Uniden systems in the past and was not totally satisfied. The picture on my Lorex is very clear and the intercom works really well. The set-up is really easy as was the internet set-up on my Android! The only thing is though the app for my IPad was hard to find (had to Google Lorex to find the download for the Lorex SD Pro). I am highly satisfied with my system. I recommend it and if I ever need to purchase another it will be a Lorex!

This is my 3rd lorex system. The last one I had functioned perfectly, the only problem I had was I wanted to add a fourth camera and it was no longer made. I bought this system with 4 cameras so I wouldn't get surprised later. Had problem with one camera constantly recording. Lorex sent out a new camera right away. This system with 720p is wonderful. The secondary detection capability besides the IR works great. Night vision is good but does have some ghosting. Signal strength to monitor is good and its nice to be able to carry your monitor with you while your positioning cameras. The online software to connect to your phone works great. Am very happy with my purchase of this and the 2 other systems.

I replaced an older Lorex system with the LW2962H. The cameras are great as are several new features. All four cameras record even in the single camera mode. The best feature for me is the system's ability to detect sound and start prerecording video to save if motion is also detected. Other reviewers attest to the image quality. One of our cameras delivers a strong signal from about 150 with several walls between it and the monitor. The only negative for me is the image does not switch to the camera which has detected motion. I put the system in motion record with a single camera looking at the most important place to overcome this issue. In the quad mode an icon shows which camera is recording. Lorex must have too few service people or too many people who don't download the users manuals.

The wireless signal from cameras is strong and the receiver works well; for the price, the system is very feature-rich and pretty user friendly. Couple of improvements I would like: wifi internet connectivity would be nice as well as remote access via a web browser and email alerts.

Been reviewing security cameras, leaning more towards the high end units. Wanted to go wireless since routing wired cameras would create a problem. Bought this pair and what a breeze to install. Travel a lot, and just want to be able to monitor from afar. Used to have neighbor come in and check house weekly, but with these, I can make sure garage doors are closed, no leaks in Boiler room. Ordered several more for around the house

PLEASE READ! As far as the system and its ease of set up and use, it is worthy of 4 - 5 stars. Distance from cameras to receiver/monitor range from 20 feet to 300 feet in our application all work well. However, Subtract points for not being able to use an external monitor, i.e., bigger screen, and more points for having very slow customer service, long wait times , no call backs when you get tired of waiting, and you're now at an overall rating of 2 stars. Lorex makes a good product and can afford to have decent customer service. It means they would have to part with a little more of their profits.

Just got my LW491HD -- which is really a LW2962H system (2 camera 720p system) with 2 additional LW2960HAC1 cameras. I bought this for the PIR motion sensor (the video motion sensor on my old Lorex system was useless -- even on the lowest sensitivity setting, it triggered on the slightest change in ambient lighting!). Wish the housings and mounts were metal, not plastic -- which I think will be easy for someone to destroy. Easy set-up! Wish the power cords to the cameras were longer, as I am snaking one through a wall from my basement to where I want to mount the camera on the outside entryway of the house, and the power cord is not long enough to do that. Not overly impressed with the app, which I downloaded to my iPad. It may be me, but I don't see a way to download the video remotely -- so I could e-mail it to someone (like the police). My old Lorex system let me do that through DDNS on my laptop and on my iPad app. I wasn't successful trying to access my new system using DDNS on my laptop, so not sure that is supported on the LW491HD. Also didn't see any way to remotely delete the captured video events; all I could do is watch them on the iPad. Watching them remotely on the iPad was also crude -- play and pause only -- couldn't rewind or drag the video to a given point. Could only play it from the beginning. Let's hope the app gets a lot smarter!

This is quite possibly the worst security system I've ever had. I moved from a Logitech Wilife cam system to this because of the wireless. It worked fabulously for ~2 weeks. Then it started losing one or both of the camera feeds randomly and until I unplugged and replugged the affected camera. After thinking it might be a distance issue, I tried to relocate the receiver approximately 6 feet away from BOTH CAMERAS. I waited overnight thinking I'd just have to relocate the receiver. No. It had lost both streams again. Zero interference. Zero obstacles. Clear line of sight. Terrible. It's marketing is questionable. The wording about being notified of motion is misleading. What you actually need to have to be notified is their own app installed on your phone. And even that isn't the best. There is absolutely no way a computer or mac can view the feed. Even though it would be technically very easy to allow for that. No option for delayed arming for motion alerts, so when you arm it, you'll almost always get yourself alerted of you leaving your own house, and the associated space that the clip will take up on your memory card. Customer Service is simply atrocious. Calling them means you need to carve yourself out a good HOUR easily. And when speaking to them it's almost as though they know the system is flawed, but you are asked to perform ridiculous steps to 'troubleshoot'. Do not waste your money on this system, and I'd say also to stay away from Lorex as a brand. Someone who doesn't stand behind their products doesn't deserve your money. They got me, don't let them get you.

This product went in with ease, and worked the first time it was powered up. The remote feature worked first time without a hitch. This is a tremendously improved version over the Lorax product I purchased a couple of years ago - which is also still in service and working. I will continue to be a customer as needs arise.

Purchased SD PRO, LCD receiver failed when setting up system. Called tech support, on weekend, other than waiting on hold for over an hour (much too long) support was helpful. They sent out replacement LCD, received via UPS within a week. Set up system with 4 cameras, set up was fairly easy, using downloadable manual from there web site was a lot more helpful than instructions included with unit. Daytime picture very good, night time picture very poor. Loaded APP to IPad, really like this feature, as Im away from site frequently and is great to be able to check things remotely. The event playback feature also good when checking on any past detections from cameras. So far very satisfied with system, other than the night picture being so poor and the long hold time reaching tech support.

(What I really need in case something happens at night) Phone app works good but wish you can delete files. For the price I think its very good just not the night vision. If motion detection recording in night vision was good 4 or 5 stars.

I bought the Lorex LW2962H because we have had a couple car break-ins recently.I absolutely love this system. It serves our purpose to the tee. I installed the cameras to hang under the overhang of our garage one on each side criss crossing the viewing area. Other than running the wires, it was plug and play all the way. I turned on the system and it worked like a charm with out any interference. The picture was clear and looked great. I took the monitor all around my 2800 square foot house and got a clear picture all around in every room. I then hooked the monitor to the router and upgraded the firmware. A child could do it. The Night mode works great! You won?t read license plates but I can see nicely across the street and about 3 to 4 houses down, and our street light is out atm. I look forward to adding a 3rd camera for my front door when I can get the extra cash. Love it! Thanks Lorex for providing an easy solution to our concerns. :)

the camera image is quite good. the colour is good, the night vision is very good. the motion sensor is VERY sensitive. The zoom could be improved, as its not a real camera zoom - rather the monitor just zooms in on the picture (which pixelates it). The apps for phone viewing are subpar and do not have an option to access prev recordings (so if you're on vacation you can't see what's happened if something has happened at your home.) and the apps suck battery life unbelievably. also, the ipad version is just an iphone version - which looks terrible on the ipad. There is no web connection - this is a big missing item. worse when you register the website offers you a free ddns connection - walks you through setting it up - and implies you will be able to see your cameras on the web through a secure location - however after talking to tech support -- you find out this camera model / monitor model doesn't support it at all. There is a rechargeable battery on the monitor - which implies you can use it as a viewing monitor cordless.. HOWEVER, it requires a permanent WIRED ETHERNET connection - have fun finding a good location in your home w/ 1) a wired ethernet location, 2) central to viewing AND 3) close to the 4 cameras so that you can be in view. you can buy a wireless extender - but based on its description - its mounted BY the camera and one PER camera is needed (rather than the opposite on phone systems were 1 per system is needed). The power cords on the camera are not long enough for outdoor mounting -- under eaves etc you have to be able to mount 20 ft up and run the cord BACK down to the outlet - but the cords are way too short for that. there are no extensions sold on their website (which would seem like a simple solution) - the large adaptor makes it really difficult to hide the cords from outsiders unplugging your cameras - or just making it look nice. Lastly - calling in for any assistance - make sure you have at least an hour free - you'll be on hold for 40 min JUST to talk to an agent, my basic question was then bumped to 2nd level - requiring me to go back in to a 30 min queue.

I bought this product about 5 days ago. OVERALL: 4 stars! Amazing product for the price. SUPER SIMPLE INSTALLATION! If you aren't in the market for a $1000+ system with professional installation, I recommend this. It's expandable to 4 cams and 64GB micro SD card (to record up to 400hrs of HD video, total). What it comes with is enough to remotely see and hear what's happening around your house through your smartphone. VERY impressed with this budget camera system! PROS: 1. I was surprised at how strong the wifi signal is between the base and cameras. I have one cam about 100 ft and 3 walls away from base and it gets a perfect 720p resolution signal during the day. 2. The ease of use for this system is incredible. If you can use a smartphone, you can use this system. 3. Set up took less than 3 hrs total. 4. Built in microphones and speakers. Yes, it records sound. I don't know what others were talking about, but if you take the sd card out, plug it into a computer and play the videos, they DO have sound. You can also talk through the camera, through your smart phone and hear. It's a little choppy, but it can get the job done. 5. micro SD card can be wiped and ready for reuse without removing it from the base. Simply go to options, settings, format sd card. Thank you, Lorex. That could have been a pain. 6. You can remotely view your cameras' live feeds or recorded video any time, any where through your smart phone. Booyah, sense of security restored! 7. Did I mention 720p HD video? (Think major network cable show quality video). 8. Night vision can actually see surprisingly far. In total darkness, I can spot movement from about 100ft, recognize a family member or pet from about 60 ft and get an accurate face shot from about 30ft (still) or 20 ft (walking quickly). CONS: 1. The night-vision is somewhat grainy, as with most security cameras. It would be difficult to recognize someone's face while in night-vision mode. The only solution for that in this system is to mount the camera in such a way that trespassers would be forced to walk within 40ft of the camera. 2. Notifications from the motion sensors can be annoying if they are triggered frequently and there doesn't seem to be a way to shut them off. 3. The system is not built to record to a computer or hard drive. It's designed for micro sd only. 4. You simply cannot view recorded video on the base station. Can't. Nope. MORE INFO: It does require that you plug the power cord into an outlet and to operate a drill to mount the cameras. Plan on needing to tie up the cord so it isn't just dangling. Yeah, that's really all there is to it. The base station connects to the included cameras automatically upon start up and navigating options and menus in the base is extremely simple. The system also automatically sends a notification to your smartphone when a motion sensor is triggered (should you choose to download the app, which I HIGHLY recommend, because it's awesome). So if you plan to use the motion sensors, set the cameras in such a way that pets, traffic, wind blowing branches around, etc don't send you constant notifications. I'm working to find out if the notifications can be disabled, but it doesn't seem like it... I am working on running an android emulator on my pc to use a video recorder software to save recordings on my hard drive, but it is a real pain. Not that there is a problem with letting the system save on micro SD, only that it would be easier for me to use my hard drive.

This camera was everything I needed, it acts as an intercom, it hears everything outside, the video is clear and has great range of field. I searched for almost a year for this type of wireless camera that receives audio and can talk back. What I didn't expect was settings like motion sensor that turns the camera on when someone walks by it. It can sense someone far away like at least a 100" or more or set for close range only. The sound is also adjustable. The only suggestion I would have is to improve the customer service. I assume that the Lorex company is so busy that it takes a while to get through to them on the phone. Make sure you follow the directions. Thanks for everything Lorex. Tom

I also like knowing who's at my front door without having to answer it.

For the price, this system is a gem! I gave it 4 stars because 1) the night time video is very blurry and looks out of focus, and 2) the wifi range is very limited. I have one camera that is 20 feet from the monitor and that signal strength is strong, but the other camera is 35 feet and goes through 3 walls and the signal strength is weak. However, it maintains a connection 99% of the time. I realize night time video can be a problem, but other systems I've tried had much better night picture. It's not high definition, I know, and for the most part I'm pleased. Pleased enough the I'm going to order two more cameras. The remote viewing using the iPhone app is excellent! The best and easiest I've tried. I recommend this system for ease of installation, remote viewing, SD card recording, and well, just about everything except for the two weak points I made.

This is our second purchase of Lorex camera systems. Pros of this system: -four cameras record at same time; old system only one at a time -easy to review video footage; old system easier on pc to review Cons of this system: -outdoor cameras base not as durable or adjustable as previous camera system (note this system states that cameras will need to be protected from rain/ snow while old cameras did fine for years and are metal not plastic) -range of old camera was stated at 450 ft; range of new camera stated 650 ft but old system range seems same or better than new range. -unable to buy 'boost' for new system range; old system did have 'boost' items to purchase available (but we chose to buy a new system rather than add to old) Overall we are happy with system's new features but feel that the range and durability/adjustability of old cameras was superior.

Ease of setup is very easy. Been running in a test mode before installing and things are running perfectly. The itunes app works great on iphone and ipad. The andriod app doesn't work in pc bluestack mode.. but, not a biggie. The really big plus is being able to drag the receiver screen around while setting up the cameras. No running back and forth to see if you have things adjusted. Something that would be nice: The ability to selectively turn off the ir lights at night on cameras behind a window.

Just bought this camera system over the past weekend. It is very user friendly and the product itself is great. Already ordered the extra two add-on cameras to have the full four camera ability. The features are awesome. I like the fact that it has built in mics, so you can actually hear as well as see what's going on outside! It only records video though, which is ok with me. The motion detected recording is by far my favorite feature so it doesn't hog up the memory chip.

Made this purchase in hopes of deterring thievery and trespassing. I review many different systems and companies and so far so good. Installation was a breeze. The monitor may be a little confusing at first but thankfully I have a great "better half" to help with the monitor features. Do so research and like me, you will come back to Lorex for a purchase. Just hoping that the system with last for a long time without any issues. So far, so good.

The monitor/camera is great for monitoring our front door! It allows us to see who comes to the door in daylight and dark - very clear pictures and you can add the sound if you choose! Awesome item for the price. Easy to install. Easy to move the monitor from room to room. Perfect solution for us to be able to see when our feral cat comes to eat!!! If we are not monitoring the camera, there is a soft sound that alerts us to check the camera - couldn't be happier!

What's great about it: Easy set up, clear picture. Records video.

What's not so great: Weather resistant not weather proof. No WIFI connection, must use Ethernet cable.

I bought this camera system to keep track of my mail and package deliveries and also to keep an eye on the front of my property. The wireless system made it easy to place the cameras but be mindful that you still need to connect it to a power source. I had one camera looking out a window but found out that the infrared light reflected off the glass at night and made night viewing impossible. There is no way to turn off the infrared lights so the only way to get outside night viewing is to mount the camera outside in a sheltered position i.e. under an awning and near an outlet. My "mailbox" camera is mounted outside under my awning and is working fine. I had to disable the "video" motion detection because a recording was triggered with every shadow, tree, or flag movement. The remote access to the camera is OK but only with a smartphone. You can not delete files that you have viewed remotely.
