I have owned the system for two months and no problems with it yet. Picture quality is actually pretty good and love the two way talk. Only issue has been filing warranty paperwork. And good luck with customer service. Left my number for my place in line. Two days later still have not received a callback.

Bought it two years ago and had nothing but the problems with remote connection. Skipe usage is very awkward and inconvenient . After the warranty had expired I was not able to use it with remote connection beacause for some unclear reasons I just failed to reconnect and reset it thru skipe.

Location: North Carolina

The sound on the picture was not clear and when any cars came by it looked like the were moving too fast to even identify them. After I set the camera up a black line came down by the side of the screen. I only used the camera a few hours for 2 days and then I returned it. It works fine inside a home, but I would not recommend it for the outside.

We're using the system as a stand-alone with no internet available, but connected to our TV for a monitor.
It works very well in this environment, with great night-time function too.
A picture-in-picture function for the TV would be a nice improvement.

First, delivery was fast. Second, you can read the manual, but really, plug in the monitor, plug in the cameras, and there's the picture. I have two Lorex units. The second one came with two cameras, one of which did not work. Lorex sent a replacement camera right away with a pre-paid return for the defective unit. So far, so good.

I am, frankly, a clutz; I was astounded by the ease with which I installed and operated the Lorex camera system. It came together exactly as the instructions called for, and worked, immediately from right out of the box. It delivered exactly what I wanted, i.e. advance notice of what might perhaps be a security issue, then full details on exactly what was going on. It worked immediately, and within the first month had given me a couple of alerts about people approaching the door about whom I had some reservations. I recommend this system highly for anyone, but especially for anyone who has some doubts about his or her ability to install and operate a really useful video camera security system.

Just got my system up and working, so far very happy with what I bought. Will probably be adding more cameras. Conforting knowing my house is monitored when home or gone. Only regret is not getting a larger monitor.

Aside from a few install glitches (which were resolved with determination by the tech staff), this system is everything it advertises. The resolution is wonderful.
Would like to see this be able to record simultaneously when tethered for Skype.

I got this system over the holidays and I can safely say that it exceeds my expectations. I felt pretty safe purchasing the product after reading the reviews. A quick phone call to Lorex confirmed the quality of their customer service. Installation of the cameras is quick and hassle free. The system works perfectly out of the box. I?m impressed with the night vision, motion detection coupled with the alarm that lets you know someone is at your door and not to forget the recording capability as well as a the remote viewing via Skype.
In summary if you are looking for a great value and reliable / fun system to use: this is yours! Highly recommend it.

Great surveillance system for the price.

We were looking for a system where the monitor could be moved from room to room. This system works perfect for our home. The set up took approximately 30 minutes with no hassles. The footage is clear and the entire operating system is user friendly. It allows us to monitor the exterior of the house no matter which room we are in.

This is a great low cost product that works like a high cost product. I couldn't be happier about the ease of installation and use. I had this system up and running with holes drilled through garage walls for power to the cameras and cameras mounted in about an hour and a half. I have never had a system until now and am amazed about the Lorex technology. Thank you Lorex, a very happy customer.

Had originally purchased the original analog series from Costco with a 9" screen;
However, the camera had some issues and was returned and exchanged for the
SD9 Live system.

A significant improvement in colour and quality of picture and cameras.

The system is easy to use and excellent for surveillance whether at home or at the
Office. In addition, when you are away from home, you are able to view everything
through their link.

I also have an IP camera that is used indoors, but having a fixed setup with screen that
Is always on is Much more useful than having to turn on a monitor or remote device to view cameras.

I bought this second system to add two more cameras, whilst having a backup screen in
Case the original will run into issues.

Also, the staff at Lorex were excellent and friendly. They took the time to answer any
Questions I had, and aided greatly in my decision to choose the right model.

Thank you again Lorex.

LW272? - Not sure why, but LW2732 came in the mail. I received the product in a few days after ordering online. I opened up the box and this was essentially what I ordered -- two wireless cameras and a 7" monitor/recorder.

Power - You may need a new outlet installed near where you decide to place the camera. I ended up splitting from an outlet in my garage and drilling a hole through my exterior wall. That camera is plugged into a newly installed outlet just inside that garage wall. Another hole was drilled through my vinyl window at the opposite end of my house. That camera is plugged into an outlet near the corner in my living room. Power supply will be the most time consuming part of installation. Mounting the camera and learning how to use the display/recorder will be the easy part. The camera has three feet of power cord attached, while the adapter that plugs into that cord has six feet for a total of nine.

Setup - It works right away when everything is plugged in. Adjusting the cameras is easy and so is navigating the monitor/recorder.

Image - This is not HD; however, it will suffice if you are looking to identify somebody. The daytime image is color and is better than the nighttime image. The nighttime image is good and will be useful if the person of interest gets anywhere near the camera. My biggest concern before purchasing was the motion sensing range. This will not be an issue. The specs say 21 feet for IR, although IR is not the only method of detecting motion. I always have my system on the motion sensing setting and I have videos that initiate based on motion way beyond 21 feet. Cars passing by nearly 40 feet away routinely cause recording. I would recommend using the "four channel motion recording" setting, especially if your cameras cover adjacent areas. This is the only setting that allows you to record more than one camera at once. Otherwise, you will need to have your motion sensing recording setting at five seconds. If you set it any higher, your other cameras won't be recording when your suspect moves around your house.

Overall, I am happy with my purchase and I think Lorex puts out a good product. I have not had a need to contact customer service, so I cannot rate it. I think this product is a good value. I bought it while it was on sale and paid $229.00.

I had a break in a few months ago and was so worried it might happen again. Looked at a lot of equipment and settled for the Lorex mainly because it was wireless and the price was good. Once it came, it was so easy to install. I know have a piece of mind when away from home. I set it for motion when not at home and it picks up everything. I see myself leaving and returning each day. I put the cameras inside and they are hard to see. The monitor is hidden away and picks up the cameras even thru the walls.
Great product.

Good quality solid product. All features work well. Easy quick setup. Remote viewing is a bit of a hack, although it works. Be aware that using remote viewing does effect your ability to record locally. This system makes a good front door security system with video viewing and an audio intercom. Local recording is on only one camera. Max system is four cameras, with many viewing options. Good value for the money.

I am using this Lorex system with two (2) cameras to monitor employee and customer activity within my 1500 sq. ft. beauty salon. I first read the reviews on-line both positive and negative. Then I compared to other manufacturers. The Lorex had the best features with regard to day, & night use. The ordering was very easy, the shipping was fast and the product was of high quality. Set-up was very easy - hang the cameras, plug them into an electrical outlet, set up the monitor screen and a high quality picture appeared. Programing the system was also easy. The 2 gb recording disc is totally of inadequate size even when programed to record over. A larger capacity disc should be included. I purchased a 32 gb for $20. Have used the Lorex for a couple of weeks and I am very happy with my purchase.

I am very pleased with my Lorex system. I installed it myself at 67. I was able to set the system up, install the cameras and understand the simple instructions in the manual. It was easy/breezy. I can record each night, or when we leave the house. It is GREAT. If you are thinking of a security system at a reasonalbe cost the LW2730 is the one for you.

This is my 2nd live system. I use both systems to record at the same time for more coverage. The range will allow either system to cover from anywhere in my home even from any floor. I like the ability to move the cameras to any location in my home and change what is recorded as I see fit. The only down side is the indoor /outdoor is not for direct contact with the rain or snow so it must be protected by an eve or an overhang. The systems set up with very little effort

After researching home security systems for a couple of weeks I decided to buy the Lorex LW272 system. The one I bought was an open box, but I could not tell it from brand new. It did not look like it had been used at anytime. I've had it now for about two months and have not had any problems. The setup was as simple as plugging in the monitor and cameras. Picture quality is very good. The night vision is really good. (For a night vision camera) If someone triggered the camera at night, it would be easy to see who it was even in a very low light environment. The system has a lot of extra features that I did not see listed on the website. The cameras have zoom capacity, there is an alarm that can be set when motion is detected (and it has various volume levels) which is nice because it let's me know if someone is approaching my door. You can upload pictures to the monitor and have them shown on it as the screen saver. When the motion sensor is triggered the screen saver switches off and the camera with the motion is activated. So, you can see who is at the door immediately.
I've been very pleased with my system and would purchase it again. It is perfect for the average home.

Great entry level security system. Simple and easy to set up.

One disappointment. The camera from my LW2710 system would not pair with the receiver from the LW2730. The camera and receiver systems look exactly the same in every way. Contacted technical support and they indicated the systems were not compatible.

Unit is rated for 40ft night vision but can barely make out people at 15ft away. Would be nice to have app access without using Skype. Not very impressed with unit or their customer service.

I recently bought a Lorex camera and monitor system (LW2712), an open box price of $229.99. I was leery of an open box item but it came to me as if it was brand new. It works great and I am very pleased with this system. I have priced other products and this has surpassed the others by far. I would definitely recommend this Lorex system, a value for the price.

Surprisingly effective system for the price. A signal booster was needed for one camera placed outside and around a lot of aluminum eaves and soffit covering. After that all went smoothly. The controls are simple to learn from the Quick Start sheet once you get familiar with the icons on the front panel of the receiver. The motion sensor recording is a great feature. For a simple system this is a great way to start out.

This Lorex LW-272 Wireless Camera System is great. I have not had one problem with it. Included are 2 cameras and the whole system has been great. Easy to set up, if I can do it you can to. It is well worth the money you spend and the peace of mind it gives you being able to see who is outside your door even in the dark you can see clearly at around 10 -15 ft. I really like the motion alarm/recording function which works really well. I would recommend this system to anyone.

I use this camera as a digital peep hole so the kids don't have to go to the door to see who's there.

The system was easy to set up. I like the LCD display and motion sensor. However, I wished I could view it remotely with something other than Skype.

I have wireless IP cameras by a competitor that require a dedicated computer and uses up bandwidth. This Lorex system does not require that.

I'm content for the price, ease of use, and great instructions. (other brands have awful instructions.)

Ever since I received my surveillance camera system, I feel safer. We had a few home invasions lately, and this puts my mind at rest. Also, the delivery was super fast, and free shipping is great. I will most likely buy 2 more cameras later on. Thanks Lorex ! I will hight recommend your product

I bought this Camera online from Lorex just 10 days. Beginning 3 days was unhappy.
1. One Camera can not Capture whole front side view of my home.
2. Very sensitive in recording even wind blowing or unseen objects.
Now I put two Cameras on front. and capture whole front side.
Putting on Quad mode, Now it records at time of real object moving. not like before recording due to wind blowing or due to some flies moving around.

Day time recorded videos amazing. Family/ children videos you can keep for your future Album.

It records voices also.
It is a great experience. You will love this Camera.

Great camera for the money! I needed something to stop the car break-ins in front of my house, and so far, so good!
The system is easy to setup, has a good, quality picture, even at night.
I am however, having some issues w/the LCD monitor freezing/turning off, but technical support is helping me w/it, and if it continues, they said they would replace.
I would definitely recommend this camera to others!

So far it seems like a good system. I needed a small system just to watch the house while i'm away because neighbor kids are messing with the house, this was a decent price and set up seems simple. Haven't put it up yet but I've been playing with it and this should do the trick

To tell you the truth I am not completely satisfied with this system, The camera to monitor isn't as far of range as stated, I have some trees between the two, I ordered a signal extender for one of the cameras which is about 100ft away from the monitor. Hopefully it will work. The night vision camera works alright I guess, but you can't really make out who is driving or walking by unless they are very close to the camera and stopped directly in front of it, any movement makes the picture choppy and blurry.. you can't read a liscence plate on a vehicle day or night.. But I guess it is better than nothing..

We love our new system. It is very efficient in covering our selected areas. We love the options of sound or muted on exterior surroundings. We found the system extremely easy to use, easy to set up.The mointoring screen has a good view of our home and garage and the night vision is great. The security system provides the extra comfort of seeing anywhere we have a camera without having to go outside. This is especially important to us after a recent theft which prompted us to look into options for a security system. We are so happy with our decision to purchase the Lorex Home Surveillance System.

I have used lw2311 ( more than a year ago) and lw 272 ( 2 weeks ago).

I have no idea if there is any difference in specs for lw 2711 and lw2712.

The best part of 2311 and 272 is that they are easy to set up. The camera connects wirelessly to the monitor hence dealing with less wires. You only have to provide power supply. The only diff between 2311 and 272 is the monitor, 272 allows you to monitor constantly conveniently. But if you only need to view as and when you need it via a tv set , 2311 is best

You also have the option of timer , motion detection or manual recording to an SD card. IR spec also enable you to view night images albeit not as clear as day time images.

Some concerns though. At certain location may trigger the motion detection continuously hence recording taking up your SD card space needlessly. In this case , try adjusting the camera facing, normally it helps.

another pip is , although the specs stated that the motion detection is up to 6 meters ( 20 ft) , in my opinion, less than 3 meters range, the success rate of detection is about 70-80 %. Between 3- 6 meters range , the success range of detection may drop to 40-50 %. This could due to the lack of sensitivity in the PIR system.

Great system, great price! We mounted the cameras on the brick on the front of our house. The set up was easy and the wireless reception has a far reach! The only thing I didn't like was that the cameras needed to be plugged into an outlet. This limits the places that the cameras can be mounted.

After hours upon hours of online research and see a similiar system made by Uniden I decided to bite the bullet. I must say I was not initially blown away after hooking up the system. I actually thought about returning it. But after checking out the prices of cameras with night vision and a monitor. I realized there no better bang for the buck. For my purposes this is a great system. It's simple to operate and I love the motion detection recording. At this point and time, I'm not willing to spend a fortune on some high tech system. Truly a great value!!! I may even get extra cameras. :-)

By the way, it's $100.00 cheaper than the Uniden system.

My wife and I moved to a downtown area and wanted to have both intrusion detection and surveillance systems. Ordered from Lorex online for $199 during the Veterans weekend sale, (very pleased with the price). The system was a snap to install even considering that I added two receptacles to power the wireless cameras. The resolution of the picture is spectacular and the covererage and depth is great. Am also pleased with the recording capability. Exactly want we wanted to complete our security portfolio. Would recommend this product to anyone considering camera surveillance.

This is my second review as the second LW2732 unit I ordered has arrived, I bought it for the two cameras so that I would have four active cameras. The only thing to add to the previous review is that pairing the two new cameras to the existing unit was very easy. Just go to settings then pairing, select the camera number to be paired (in this case three), with the camera powered up and close to the screen unit press the pair button on the back of the camera and it immediately shows up as camera three. Also been playing around with the motion detection sensitivity so that I don't start recording every time a bird or chipmunk goes by. I record on "high"quality and most recordings take 1mb and a few 2mg. Do the math for size SD card you use and you can figure how many recordings you can get before the card is full or over write kicks in.
Lastly the manual says that using the joystick button on the back of the unit you can erase individual recordings but not a whole folder (each folder is a day). This is NOT true. Highlight the folder and press the center of the joystick button and a msg appears asking if you really want to delete the folder. Hit OK and its gone. LOREX what gives?

Bought two of these since it less expensive than buying extra cameras ala carte, plus I have an extra monitor if the first one dies. Bought a 32gb card and there is penalty of recording room. In addition with the over write feature enabled I should not have to worry about losing recent recordings if I need them. Bought this system as an "open box" item. As far as I can tell they sent me a new unopened item. Also the item sent was the LW2732 which is an updated version of what is shown in the picture. The wireless specs out at 650 ft vs the 450 on the LW2710 model shown above. Also the monitor on the LW2732 has touch controls on the front of the monitor and does not come with a remote. Just note that the cameras for the LW2732 are not compatible with the LW2710 cameras according to the tech support guy I spoke to. So if you are buying two sets of these to use four cameras make sure the models match. (The model number shown above "LW272" is not a real model number. It must be a plug number for the "open box" special.)

This system works well. It is very portable due to it being wireless. All you need is a standard plug to power it. This is my second system from Lorex. The first is working well but I needed more cameras. This system has a monitor. The other one plugs into a video source. For long range you will need a directional antenna but out of the box they work nicely around my yard depending on walls or other items that may block the signal.

Very impressed by the quality of the items in the two Cameras and Monitor in the LW 2712.
For the cost it was a great deal and I hope that it will provide years of good problem free service

There was no trouble in setting up the cameras or the monitor and a picture was instantly received.

At first the picture was spasmodic i.e. a "No Signal" message would appear intermittently on the monitor screen then the picture of the coverage area would appear but that settled out and the system seems to be working as it shoud.

Now and again I still notice that the "No Signal" message comes up on the screen for a brief moment but on reading up on the subject of intermittent wireless signal loss, I now believe these small intrusions, to the camera(s) signal strength, is probably due to atmospheric conditions or some irregular snip of interference from nearby cell phone that is in use.
I do not however find that these little blips is enough of a problem to inhibit the security coverage that the cameras afford.

So far I'm very pleased with the way in which it all came together and the sense security it provides our home.

We were pleased with the kit and the pricing. We had the unit installed by a professional security technician who installed our basic system 25 years ago and has maintained it since then. We needed an extra length of wiring from camera to power unit but he had to make up such wiring since our only source in town was Radio Shack and they didn't have the wiring/connectors pre-made.

A connector to one of the camera power supplies had the internal pin out of place and we had to work a little while to get it back into the connector.

The record mode doesn't seem to work as the Guide suggests (we can only record one of the two cameras at a time and we'll need to speak with LOREX customer service to see if we can't get a better understanding of what is occurring. Otherwise, am quite happy with LOREX so far.

Basic starter system


- Ease of setup and use. Easy to move cams.

- Four cams with audio and a recording monitor for the price


- Mounts don't hold cams steady. Takes a MacGyver fix.

- Narrow field of view at close range. Easy to sneak around cams.

- Can only record one cam at a time.


- Good mix of features and number of cams for the price.

- Easy to use.

- Good starter system for at least a medium sized lot.

Yes, I recommend this product.

The Best

Pros: cameras work really well

Cons: wasn't that easy to place on the outside., electrician had to add outlet for cameras., add on camera cost nearly as much as the system.

This system is great. I can see great at night and during the day, The best part is when I'm upstairs and cant get to the front door , I just use the intercom to inform the person that I'm unavailable. There's a catch, the cameras need to be plugged into a power source. I had to call an electrician.

81 out of 229


great value, good product!

Everything worked great out of the box and basically just plug it in and you are good to go. The monitor is small but it works fine. The picture quality is not the greatest but it serves its purpose. The cameras pick up the audio just fine too. I like how the monitor will beep if there is activity so I don’t have to stare at it to know if someone has walked in the store. I have the cameras probably 50 and 75 ft. away from the monitor and the signal is good. Phones and mobile devices never interfere. All in all if you are looking for a small package to monitor your home or workplace this is a great deal. Would have given 5 stars but the contrast can be a little dark at times, but I am very happy with my purchase.

Kid monitor on steriods

The receiver is light and can be brought into the kitchen whenever we are cooking or to the living room whenever we have guests. We like to keep an eye on the kids when they play in the playroom or when they are asleep in their bedrooms.

Probably my favourite features are the night vision which allows us to see if their eyes are still open, the 2 way speaker which allows me to speak with them without having to go there and the motion sensor which detects when they get out of bed. I'm able to stop problems before they get out of hand.

Love it...had a baby monitor but this just takes it to another level

Excellent System for the Price

Syncing it to the system is extremely easy and setup is quick and easy as well. The mic function is handy for our front door because I can talk to people at the door without having to come up from the office in the basement. It also allows you to see the visitor and gives you a chirping alarm to grab your attention when it detects movement. Only problem is it comes with a 2GB memory card that is not sufficient. I recommend immediately upgrading to a 16GB memory SD card so you can record more than 24hrs. of video at a time. You cn have it automatically record over video as well, so it just keeps recording continously.

I ordered this because it stated wireless and once I received it I realized that each of the cameras needs to be plugged into an electrical outlet. They only have 4'cords. Well that to me is not wireless. Now I have to find an electrician to put outlets in my attic as I am mounting them on the top corners of my home. I am a little disappointed and if I had not paid an additional 38.00 for fast delivery as I wanted to hook them up immediately I would return them. So now I have to save for the electrician. Oh well my bad for not looking further into the product before ordering. Hopefully it will be worth it in the end. I will add another rating once they are up and working.

This has got to be the best security system for the money. I love the wireless connections and the stand alone monitor.

Lorex Live SD7 Model 2711

Pros: easy to hook up., easy to use.

Cons: no personal photos for screensaver, longer power extension cords

Bought this to hook up at my mom's house. I feel it was easy for her to understand and use which was of a concern for me. The picture was great anytime of day. Even when the IR light was used at night and it switched over to black and white. After I hooked it up I wished it had one more camera. The warehouses and websites both carry different setups so you need to research which one is best for your setup.

After 1.5 years...

This is a review for those persons with "common sense."

I've had this system up and running for a year and a half. I am pleased, and here is why...

1. I wasn't expecting to be able to see if the man I recorded from 50' away in total darkness shaved or not.

2. I didn't install the camera in my pool.

3. I didn't expect to be able to run more than four (4) cameras on a single monitor.

4. I didn't expect the motion recording to turn on for an ant that was 400' feet away.

5. I didn't think "wireless" meant that the cameras would "magically" receive power from the "power fairy."

Obviously I was being sarcastic... but after reading some of the reviews left, I felt it necessary to point out pure ridiculousness. The box and / or descriptions provided for this product clearly illustrates the aforementioned of what to expect.

This system has been monitoring my driveway from 30' above the ground. It picks up a vehicle moving at approximately 80' from the camera (think of it like a triangle). You can clearly make out a vehicle make and model (as long as you know your vehicles). Forget about obtaining a license plate number, it won't happen with this type of resolution unless the vehicle is parked directly in front of the camera, so don't expect it to. Facial recognition may work indoors, but after 10' outdoors it will not be clear. Race and ethnicity are discernible but only during daylight. At night faces of people kind of take on a "white" look. A good way to avoid this would be to spend some money on a set of bright motion lights (left and right of the camera) so that the night vision doesn't have to work as hard. Also, the infrared LEDs glow red at night, so if you're trying to hide your cameras you may want to rethink purchasing this system. However, if you like visual deterrents, these cameras kind of look like a "terminator" staring at you in the dark.

If you're mounting this camera outside, keep it covered. Try to tuck it away under an overhang and you won't have to worry about it submitting to the weather. Be advised, if mounting one of the cameras in direct sunlight the black coating will fade to a brown, rust-like appearance. This is normal and won't affect the function of the camera.

I view a lot of surveillance footage for my career (Law Enforcement). Believe me; this system is more than adequate if you don't live in a world where Cadillac’s come in your mailbox. Picture is clear on a sunny day and the audio for this type of device is actually rather good. But beware, there are several states in which it is illegal to record audio without consent from both parties (that includes the person being recorded).

I was so pleased with this system that I bought a second, four camera system. I now have six (6) cameras up and running and am very pleased with the systems. I purchased a 32GB card and set the screen for four (4) channel motion trigger with a 5 second stop time. Basically, if one of the cameras detects motion, that camera then records what it sees for five (5) seconds after the motion stops. This allows my system to record someone moving around my entire house. By the time one camera stops recording, the subject is coming in to view of another camera. Be advised, this system WILL NOT record multiple cameras at the same time. This is the only major issue I have with this system. The best part about this system is the ease of transferring recorded content. Simply remove the memory card from the monitor, insert it in to your computer, transfer the time-stamped footage, and export it to whatever media you choose (do this prior to the arrival of your local Police Officer, it's greatly appreciated).

As I've stated, this system is adequate for those seeking a little peace of mind. It it does what it's supposed to. In the 1.5 years I've had the system I've never once had an issue with reliability. Even if the power goes out the system restarts itself and the motion recording begins again. I am pleased with this product and have purchased again. Four stars because it will not record multiple events.

As a retired employee from the Department Of Corrections, I understand the importance of cameras for secuity. Excellent quality picture. No problems with cameras. After a week, the monitor went bad.

I am satisfied with the product. After a few months, the display unit went white but it was replaced promptly when I sent the system back for repair. In the winter, I have to be careful to aim the cameras so as not to allow an expansive white snow background to throw off the light sensor and reduce the aperture too much and produce a dark image in the foreground. The cameras are on their second winter and seem to be working well in the temperatures encountered here in mid-Michigan. The system was easy to set up and the cameras are very easy to relocate if necessary.

My LIVE Lorex

When I got my Lorex, I was a little confused about the set up, but that was my fault, the thing was simple to put together, and the sound is great. I like the idea that I don't have to go to the door to see who it is, I just stand there and talk to the person without opening the door. The cords could be a bit longer, but I found a solution for that. I love my Lorex and would buy another if I had to.

Review Lorex Live SD Wireless System

The Lorex Live SD Wireless System is easy to install and use. The picture is clear during the day and night. The motion detection recording works extremely well without being too sensitive. The cameras' view is wide and each camera picks up a large area. I like the capability of upgrading from a two camera system to four camera system. My only criticism is with the remote. In order to view taped files I have to turn off the monitor and turn it on again. Then the remote will work. Overall the system is really good and has helped to improve the security of our home.

Not completely trouble free, however

What I like about this system: The monitor is small and easily mounted to a wall to free up desk space, and the cameras provide, clear crisp images even at night. The installation of the system was straightforward, but there is wiring involved. One of our four cameras had to be returned, and that process took a while. But perhaps the most disconcerting issue was that the small remote control stopped working within 3 weeks, and we have now had to request a new one. When calling the company, there is quite the long phone menu hierarchy to get through and sometimes a long wait for a customer service person.

Lorex Wireless 2 Camera system

Wireless monitor works fine for observing individuals entering and leaving.

The 3 second delay before recording can result in loss of filmed activity,

if the camera is set for a narrow range of vision. The alarm on the monitor

to activate when movement is detected is a very good alert system,

especially for the elderly, who do not want to be surprised by individuals

entering their home. All in all, it is a good system, reasonably priced and

films at night as well as daylight

Not a bad little security system for what it is.

There was one review about this system, indicating that it had to be returned because it was not, so called "WEATHERPROOF". I understand from Lorex technical that this system is mfg for "OUTDOOR" use. I am using the security cameras to monitor activity down a utlity alleyway and the cameras are mounted, unprotected from the weather on the outside wall of a residential garage. I reside in the northeast part of the country, where there is rain, sleet, snow, etc. And the cameras have not been affected in monitoring my location. There are some improvements that could be made on this security system but then again you are not talking a thousand dollar system. I believe Lorex has done a pretty fair job in designing this system...

Lorex Live LW2702 Wireless

I bought this after numerous research and reading lots of reviews on other wireless cameras.

This camera is GREAT and the price is Great. I had my reserves after reading how other things could interfere with the reception. Like portable phones, microwaves, DVD’s, and so on. Don't have any problems whatsoever. I live in a brick home and I have one camera in front of house and another one in back. You can hang themonitor on the wall like a picture or set it on table. I wish the monitor was a 8x10 but it's 5x7. It has several screen savers where it looks like an ordinary picture. It comes with everything you need except like other comments I wish it had longer cable but easy to fix with extension cord. Also it has good audio sound for outside. I am thinking of purchasing 2 more cameras to have 4 cameras at a time for security. My Sister & her husband also have this same product and they live in a different state. They Love theirs too! All I can say is Love it Love it Love it!!!

Very Nice Product--Easy To Use!

I received my Lorex 2702 last week and have some thoughts about it. I'm fairly technical with gadgets as I have worked in radio most of my life (crystal radio set was my first "toy"). I live in a two story, 2500 sq. ft. house and single. I have a hearing loss and thought about how neat it would be to be able to pick up my iPhone at night and see what is going on downstairs, etc. I'm learning about security systems (had an ADT ten years ago). I came across this product and was intrigued with its simplicity. I put both cameras in my kitchen-aimed at front/back door areas. I considered mounting one of them on the front porch--but was concerned about putting a $109 camera in the elements--in spite of the fact it was weather resistant. On top of that--how/where to plug it in the AC plug. Then--I came up with a different solution. I also bought two "fake" security cameras from Amazon for $22. They come with security warning stickers. I'll mount one on the porch and the other on the back door--with the stickers. I then found an online security company where I bought an alarm system with keypad, two door sensors and motion detector. The base-station of the alarm is separate from the keypad--and will be placed upstairs as its wireless. An 85 decibel siren goes off if activated--and i got a secondary 105 decibel siren to put downstairs. So, between the fake outdoor cams, stickers, alarm system and lorex 2702--I’m pretty well covered. I'm not (at this time) planning on having my alarm system monitored as I did in the past and kept setting it off (my bad)! The Lorex records on a 2G SD card and the nigh time viewing is very nice. Colors in the daytime are ok but a little washed out. I've also decided to get two ip camera's to compare with the Lorex--in order to be able to get email alerts and view on my iPhone/web browser. If the ip camera's/software work well--I may be sending the Lorex back. However--it's growing on me--as I like the digital picture frame/pics and built in recording capability. Some folks have upped their SD card from 2G to 8G, etc. Not sure why you would need to--as this system can overwrite it and record on-going if you like. Plus--you can select "motion" record in five, ten and thirty second segments. It only records one camera at a time for the duration you set it for. The first cam that senses heat--it begins to record. You can view the card each night or weekly--and save whatever clips/evidence you need to your computer. I guess there's a trade-off to everything. But for this price--this system is very simple and does make me feel more secure. By the way--the day the system arrived--a sheet of paper was stuck in my door. On the front was a warning for my sub-division and two others in my area--as there were three break-ins in the past week. It referenced my local police dept. blotter website. I checked it out and was surprised to find 20+ crime "areas" within a square mile of my home in the past year. A friend of mine told me today she had her condo clubhouse broken in to last night. Glad I made the decision to be more vigilant and secure. A number of people have commented on the quality of this system vs. others. I guess it's all relative. Do you want to spend upwards of $1000 or more? Some have commented on how it slows their internet down--watching Netflix, etc. I noticed that too--my solution--when you're home--watch Netflix or whatever on your Wi-Fi--but first--unplug at least ONE camera. Why? It will use less of your broadband to watch TV over the internet, etc. I measured a broadband speed test this morning and after I unplugged one camera--it shot up and doubled the speed to almost normal. then--when you go to bed or leave--just plug it back in (they're already paired with the unit) and hit record or motion record and you're done. If need be--unplug both camera's until you need them. If you want a front porch camera to run--just unplug the other one and you still have one running.

Great Product

I bought this for my Boyfriend's Mother for Christmas. She absolutely loves it! The quality of the footage as well as the sound is amazing, easy set-up, I couldn't be happier. I will be buying this same product for my own home.

Spend some dough, bag a crook

Well, after 2 instances of thievery at my local perish I decided to do something rather than sit on my hands and wait for it to happen again. I reviewed the options and figured I'd run with this product. Install is easy - drive a couple screws into the wall and plug in the cameras. Plug in the base unit, a couple clicks to set date, time and record mode and you're off. Three day later the dumb criminal came back in the dark with his bolt cutters and scumbag girlfriend. Say "CHEESE". They didn't even know it was there. Perfect images of the whole sequence put that loser behind bars.

Pros - good graphic detail. Night images were as good, in b/w. Quick setup and playback. Rest easy knowing you did something at a very reasonable price. Be proactive. At $300, why wouldn't you?

Cons - limited signal range

Overall, pretty satisfied

My biggest complaint is the fact that you can't record on all cameras at the same time. You are only able to record during the scroll session, which would make it very difficult to get much information at one time. It would be better if it automatically switched to the camera or cameras that had motion on them and recorded until the motion stopped. Other than that, it's a pretty good buy for the price. One can't expect too much technology with an inexpensive system I guess.

Yes, I recommend this product.

Good system for the money

Lorex LW2702 it is the best surveillance system on the market under $250. It’s easy to install, very easy to start it up. It is working right out the box. Add a 16GB memory card and you are set for few weeks.

Cannot use outside

I ordered because it says indoors and outdoors but that is false, you can not use it outside, tried to cancel my order and was denied. Very unhappy long time Amazon customer.

The camera can be installed outdoors as long as it is installed under a shelter.

Non-working Remote Control frustration

I got this product a week ago and eagerly started installing the four cameras. With a busy schedule it took hours each of 4 days to measure, drill holes, mount and install all cameras. This weekend I setup the Lorex system receiver and after reading instructions configured the cameras and replaced the 2 GB (3:47:17 hours) SD Card with a 16 GB SD card added to my order for $18 more. Initially, I thought the Remote Control was omitted when opening the boxes. As I unwrapped the packing, I found the smallest (aprox. 2"x 1") Remote Control device I have ever seen in my life. Worse, it was made of flemsy thin plastic materials. After two hours of operating, and just as I was about to schedule of video recording, the remote control stopped working.

After checking the 2025 disc battery inside, I tried the navigation buttons on the BACK of the receiver which are clumsy and very limited operationally. Scheduled recording and date/time setting appear to be the only functions the button can perform without the Remote Control. I even purchased 2 new 2025 disc batteries (sold only as a higher priced set), tried one, and Remote Control device still did not work. If I don't get a new Remote Control unit within a few days, I will be returning my order. I now know other reviewers' negative comments about Lorex products are true and I'm angry and frustrated because I feel like a fool out of over $500.

good product

I was looking for a camera system for the front of my house with 2 cameras. After searching and doing research I finally picked this camera system. The cameras are perfect for what I need them for. The card that comes with it is a bit small so i put in an 8GB and it is fine. The screen is simple to use. The remote is small so I used velcro to put it on the back screen. The best part about the screen is that you can pretty much plug it in anywhere in the house. We have a 2 story house and our bedroom is in the back side of the house and it still picks up the signal. And our daughter can put it in her room when we are not at home. The only downside to the system is the cameras are not as clear as I would like but for what it is used for they are fine. I would recommend this product to other people.

Great value for the money!

This is a great security camera for the money. Before I installed the product, I tested the night vision by using it as a baby monitor. It switched exceptionally well between day/night monitoring.

I eventually ended up installing it at my front door to use as a monitor to see who was coming. I setup the motion sensor which causes the receiver to beep when somebody arrives, automatically turn on the monitor/intercom and starts recording 30 seconds.

It took me longer to orient it to the exactly position that I wanted it, than to install it. As there were no wires except the AC adapter, installation was a breeze!

A security company quoted close to $1000 to install a similar product (hard-wired) with a non-movable monitor/receiver.

The only negatives are that the frame rates are low. So you can't expect full smooth video capture. I also wished the remote had a TALK button instead of having to look for it behind the monitor to talk. It also interferes slightly with my 2.4 gHz wireless N-router when I placed it beside it. Once I moved it more than 2 feet away, then it was okay.

 Works Awesome!

I bought this system because I needed a wireless system for where I planned to put the cameras. I looked at so many other systems but decided on this one. It not only does what it says, it's very easy to fast forward through the recorded video.

Simple and Straight

I know nothing is perfect, but this system is almost perfect.  Two things missing on the design:

Battery Powered screen for Cameras

Wireless Range booster

But if you look at the price, they had to compromise, but would not mind, paying a little extra for those features. Overall

Great Product.

You get what you pay for.

product O.K. can’t get clear picture except up close,(a few feet.)By the time the automatic recorder records, the picture is empty of its activity. The motion sensor sometimes works and other times Not.. It is O.K. for minor surveillance. Not for evidence or proof....From what I understand. this system is good for the price I paid.

Yes, I recommend this product.

Lorex Live LW2702 Review

I ordered this product from Amazon after about 2 years of research & looking for the right cameras for my need. This unit was on sale for about half price & it was an excellent deal. This unit works great as far as range & ease of installation & use. The reception is also good along with the microphone & other features. As far as the clarity, it is good, but it's hard to make out who exactly someone is from about 20 feet away (using full 640 x 480). This unit is highly recommended for the average household & at close range. As stated the picture & color are good, but far away it's hard to make out someone. It's recommended to use a 16GB SDHC card with this unit as it will make recording much better.

Great Security for a fair price!

I installed these cameras for an elderly lady for security, one covering her back door and one for the front door. These particular cameras are two way intercoms too. They can be set to alert you when someone is in site thus you can push a button on the monitor and speak to that person directly which is very audible on both ends "and loud", the whole time the picture is focused on them you can hear everything they say. You can be set them to record automatically "motion detection recording". I think these have setting for recording between 5 and 30 seconds but from my experience they record as long as someone's in the site of the camera. The night vision is unbelievable! I was shocked at how clear the picture was, "and there was no light on"?

"I couldn't believe the things these cameras picked up and in the distance that they did too". The camera I installed on the back side of her house overlooked the basement door on a two story house I installed the camera under the overhang of the house making the distance some 25 ft. or so and the sound and video feed was very clear for both. You place the camera were you want them and the cable that hooks to the camera I think is like 60ft, you do have to drill a 3/8 hole to get the end of the cable plug to fit through for its power supply that I plugged into a receptacle I wired into the attic of my installation, you plug in the monitor click menu and pair the camera and that's it you're done with the exception of setting it to record or not and other preferences! It was all worth it for her peace of mind knowing who was at the door without having to open it to see ... she is extremely pleased with this product! This item definitely gets 5 stars from me and her both!

Simple system, but excellent if you are looking for small system!

This is not an alarming system it is a video monitoring device, with 2-way audio communication for intercom purposes between selected camera and monitor.

I found that it was an incredible system for $400. The IR (night vision) was outstanding at 30 feet plus.

Keep in mind! Though wireless it does require an outlet nearby to power each camera as well as the monitor. Wireless refers to the video signal, not power.

The monitor is shipped with a SD memory card, which we later purchased a larger capacity "off the shelf" replacement. One drawback I saw with this system is, though you can view all cameras (up to 4 I believe) it will only record to the SD memory card one camera at a time, therefore if you have it set up to record for a long period of time it must complete it's timed cycle before it will start recording again. I can't recall what the time setting you have to choose from, but it's something like 5sec, 15sec, 30sec, 1min, etc.

Example: Let us assume you have set up the system for a 1-Minute recording period. Camera "ONE" detects motion and recording begins from that camera. Now the subject is no longer in view of camera "One" but is in the view of camera "Two". The monitor is still recording from camera "One" until the timer expires. Once the timer expire either camera sensing motion begins a new trigger to record the next session of time. The worst case here if the subject is no longer in view of either camera no further recording will be done. I advise you to do your research before you buy. I started my research directly with the factory where I was able to download manuals ...LorexTechnologies.

Overall this was a very simple system to set up and it worked very well. I left the mounting of the cameras up to my friend.

Rarely can we deter the thieving bastards or the vandalise scum, but you can take their pictures and provide them to the police for paybacks!

Good to go out the box!!!!

Pros: Had this set up within 20 minutes. Longest thing was installing the cameras in the wall.

Cons: The SD card stopped holding in the slot. I wrapped one layer of electrical tape around the SD card and it holds now.

these work pretty well

Getting these cameras to work was very easy. Too bad they could not run off of some type of battery pack instead on 120v and a DC supply. I was able to connect the camera at the front door to the porch light and the back door to the deck light. I had to run some conduit and add a couple more 120v outlets to get side front yard and side of the house cameras. The programming is easy and the setup is easy too.

Ok, so it was really easy to set up once you figured out the methodology.

Not the clearest set of directions ever written.

Very nice hardware but don't expect to read a license plate at 30 yards.

The same device, installed by a security company would have cost me $2700 . . . NO FOOLING!

I'd say it was a deal!

Lorex LIVE SD7: Only Half Alive

Purchased this system through Amazon in June of 2011. Installed a camera above our carport, looking down our straight-as-an-arrow driveway, prowling place of nighttime vandals. From a distance of 20ft and up to a few feet from the camera, on a cloudless sunny day, unobstructed by vegetation, the motion-activation/alert & recording feature worked only within the left half of the camera's field of vision, triggering an alert and recording whenever people, cats, a bird and one wind-blown oak leaf drifted by.

But motion-activation/alert and recording weren't triggered within the right half of the camera's field of vision. Tried repositioning and re-powering the camera, rebooting the system, checking the electrical circuit. The system still failed to trigger a motion alert or recording, even when my nephew and I performed a passable "Russian Sailors Dance" on the left side of my 13' wide driveway, about 15ft from the camera.

Undaunted, swapped out the first camera with the 2nd, as-yet-unused one: same side, same dance, same problem. Enough due diligence: Returned! Amazon immediately credited my account.

Am in the market for a lovable but selectively viscous hell-hound. Perhaps there's one on Amazon also with a 30-day return guarantee? (Looking now.)

Security Camera

The product did not perform as I expected. You could not see images in detail and it would not start recording soon enough. When it stopped recording it stopped too soon. The monitor also looked larger in the photo online. Would maybe work well indoors, but I wanted it for outdoors. When tried camera out, could not identify who was walking by, just knew that a person was walking by. Just did not capture images well enough for me.

Lorex LIVE SD7 Digital Security System

I purchased this system 2 weeks ago. No wonder it was awarded the 2010 Innovations International CES! If you are ok with wireless and have the outlets in place to power the cameras, then you can't do better than this system. I had to get one ACCANTD9 Wireless range extender for one camera since it was a little too far away from the receiver/monitor. It was the quickest and simplest to set-up than any other I've ever owned...up and running in under 15 minutes! Signal from all cameras is good and reliable. Motion detection works very well. Color video is good and detailed. Infrared night vision is great! 2GB SD card has plenty of recording space, but accommodates up to 16GB if needed. Playback, deleting and formatting quick and easy with the remote! The 7" monitor may be small for some users, but is just right for me because I placed it on top of my desktop tower, so it doesn't use up any desktop space. It also interfaces with my flat screen LCD TV and/or PC monitor if I want to view video on a larger screen.

Product works as advertised. I am totally pleased with this purchase. I have had two other systems which cost more and did not work nearly this well. I sent one of those systems back and trashed the other one. I plan on getting the Lorex LIVE SD7 as gifts for my grown children.

Pretty Darn Good

I was looking for a good system that was easy to install, water-proof, had night vision, remote viewing, motion triggered recording, audio pick-up, performed well and wasn't too expensive. I tried network cameras like the Panasonic BL-C210A which were total and complete frustrations, and I did a lot of reading on all-in-one systems like the Logitech home security system. All of them have the same flaw - they come with terrible software so they are almost impossible to set up (router and network configuration issues) and even if you succeed, you end up with a really buggy system that is unreliable and goes dark on you all the time. So, I was just about to give up or at least scale back my requirements when I decided to try the Lorex as a last ditch effort. I didn't know how I was going to make it remotely viewable, but at least it would allow me to see what was going on in the front of the house when I was upstairs in the office, and at least it would record in the event of a break-in. So I tried it out and I was really impressed with the ease of set up. I worked instantly and well. (See caveats below). But I still had to figure out the remote viewing issue. After some research, I stumbled upon someone who had tried it with a slingbox. Their review said they didn't like the Lorex (long distance reception issues), but they didn't have any issues with the slingbox, so I sent away for a cheap one and behold, it turned out I found an alternative solution that is working quite well: I jacked the Lorex AV output feed into a Slingmedia Slingbox Solo which transmits it over the internet to any web browser or to the slingplayer app on any android, iOS device. Works exceptionally well for me, with no monthly monitoring fees or anything. When I am working from home and the dogs go nuts, I can see the front of the house on my computer screen and I can see the house from my mobile or laptop when I am away. So for me it`s a nearly perfect solution. But...

Your mileage may vary. Here's some potential downsides: some people complain about reception issues with the Lorex over long distances, but if you keep in mind that the screen is blanked out when it is in AV out mode, and you want it next to the Slingbox and your internet router, then there is no reason you cannot put the receiver unit somewhere central where it gets good reception, as I did. Secondly, out of the box, you cannot remote control the system when set up this way, but it does record automatically upon detecting motion and put an icon on the screen telling you there is a recording waiting for you to play back later. The slingbox does have a remote IR repeater/virtual onscreen remote and the Lorex remote appears to use IR, so it should be possible to set up remote control over the internet, but it would require "teaching" the commands to the slingbox using their custom remote set-up utility (remotes(dot)slingbox(dot)com) and I haven't gotten around to that. Note, this might be a good idea since the remote that comes with the Lorex is a little flimsy. Additionally, the color rendition on the cameras is not great because the sensors are designed to be able to pick up the infrared night-vision illumination as well. In daylight, the color is fine and good enough, but it is hardly deeply saturated or accurate. Also, keep in mind that while the image data transmission is wireless, you do need to find a way to feed household electricity to the cameras - minor issue, but does require a little advance planning or some extension cords). And the last quibble I would raise is that the camera stands are a little flimsy - they don't thread into the bottom of the camera well and if you muscle the adjustable joints to re-orient them without loosening first, you will strip them. They are metal and each of the parts is pretty strong, but they just aren't recession casting. So be gentle and careful. Otherwise, this is a great solution. I have three cameras up and running and I am going to get a fourth and leave the system permanently in "quad" mode where you can see all four cameras at once. I can view anytime from any computer, any iPod touch, any iPhone or any iPad (don't own any Android gear, but I think the slingplayer app works well on android too.) Good stuff. Perfect? No. But far better and easier and more cost-effective than anything else I could find!

6 months now ....

Had this for over six months now and it is still functioning like it should. We liked this so much that I bought another set soon after the first and then later bought an additional 4 cameras. Loved that fact they are wireless and you can pretty much mount them anywhere as long as you have a power outlet nearby. Most of our cameras are mounted under the eaves and therefore have no problem with the weather. Range is pretty good and the night vision is also nice.

The only thing missing with this set is the lack of the internet monitoring or 3G network, but other than that it does a great job for what it is. EASY installation too!

147 out of 229


Easy Setup and Works Good

Easy to setup, literally just plug it in and it works. We still haven't mounted the camera so they are just sitting but that actually has worked out as I can just move the camera to the area in the house I would like to watch. It works great with no hassles.

I purchased this in January 2011 for my mare motel/foaling barn. We had it up and running in about an hour. Monitor is pretty good. We did have a little problem with static due to cameras having to send signal through partial metal roof/poles, a hard shingled roof on a detached 24X24 Palapa/patio and a sliding door, but we managed to get antenna on monitor and cameras moved around until it worked. Keep in mind most of us have other wireless things in our homes, like wireless laptop, hand held phones, etc., and they can interfere with your system. The mare motel cameras are about 80' from the monitor in the house. We have lighting in the mare motel and when we turned it off at night we didn't have to change the cameras to infrared, it still just worked great. We were quite happy with the unit until one of our 17.3 hh horse was able to chew on the camera wires, but I believe it can be fixed before next foaling season and we will protect it more next time. By the way these are race horses, so I had to get a reasonably good system.

Beware of Outdoor Use!

Ok, it is easy to install, basically "plug 'n play." If you are looking to buy a security system of indoor use, then this might be your system, but it has some limitations. If you are looking it use it outdoors, look elsewhere. Understand that there generally two limitation of use of this system outdoors: electricity and distance. In the house, on one or two floors, there is generally no problem with reception. Outdoors, it is a much different story and especially at night. I purchased this system because I work from home and have an office in the basement. I wanted to mount a remote camera so that I could see my front door for deliveries and visitors. I found the perfect spot, the only spot from where the door was visible. I managed to get the electrical situation under control and all set, right? No! The camera is about 20 feet from the receiver (which I might add is nice for a 7-inch screen), but the receiver is about 5 feet below grade; yes, it is a basement. Even at that distance, I could not get a signal strong enough to show up on the receiver; no image at night time either. I switched cameras, but no luck. I contacted Lorex and they sent me a replacement camera, which was good; however, the technician said that maybe there was some electromagnetic interference where the camera was mounted. Regardless, I mounted the new camera and no luck. Brought both cameras in the house and no problem. Obviously, range is problem. I contacted Lorex again and the only suggestion they had was to buy a range-extender antennae from them for $99. I asked them to exchange the system for a wired system and I would pay the difference, but no deal. I asked them to replace the entire system twice and it has been 2 months without a response.

Ok, the partial fix. If you have this system, you can buy an SMA coax cable pretty cheap; I got mine on eBay for about $8 plus shipping. Do not get an RP (reverse polarity) SMA cable because you will need hard-to-find adapters. I attached one end to the camera and extended the cable along my garage and attached the antennae that came with the camera to the cable, essentially bringing the camera closer to the receiver. I mounted the second camera in the same spot looking in a different direction and used another SMA cable to again extend the range of the camera. I still have problems at night with both cameras cutting in an out. I can only deduce that the UV lights affect the power transmission; the cable helps, but not 100%. I could get another cable and extend the antennae closer, but I would essentially have a wired system, which I should have gotten in the first place.

Oh, one last thing. The remote is very cheesy and I am not expecting a long life for it. Probably cost Lorex about $2 to make and it's evident.

Use common sense and proper planning when setting up your cameras and this surveillance system works as designed. Great night vision, audio and camera distance from monitor. Good on activation timing on moving objects during motion recording. Recommend.

151 out of 229


Excellent Setup!

I used this set on some machinery in a manufacturing plant. I haven't really tested the range or the recording aspects, but the signal is great at about 30ft with lots of wires and power cables in between. I am very impressed and the 7" screen is fairly easy to see objects on.

Amazing Value

I was sceptical about this package when I first saw it. After all, how could a quality setup only cost $300.00? So I read the reviews...all of the reviews, and then a made the leap. Wow. I couldn't be happier. In fact, the reviews don't even do this package justice. I would have been happy if this system simply did what It was expected it to do, but it does so much more. And, it does everything well! Here's a brief list...

* Day or night wireless monitoring with built-in infrared LEDs.

* Two-way communication between camera and base monitor. (camera mic is extremely sensitive)(I mounted the cameras in the woods, and the base makes a relaxing sound machine with the birds and cricket sounds)

* Monitor your property with an included monitor.

* Monitor your property on separate TV or monitor with included AV cables.

* Record footage independently on included monitor with included 2G SD card (upgradable to 16G).

* Record footage on VCR or DVR.

* Record constant footage.

* Record footage only when motion sensor is activated.

* Audible alarm when motion sensor is activated.

* Base station can be disguised as digital picture frame with five preloaded scenic pictures and automatically switches to camera when motion is detected.

* All functions can be controlled with included remote control.

* Base station comes with several mounting options.

I'm probably leaving something out, because the people at Lorex seem to have included every possible option in this system, but I hope not. Needless to say, I couldn't be happier.

BTW, I have one of my cameras mounted approximately 80 feet from the house and still get great reception.

Just buy it! You will be pleased.

Great for what I need both sound and picture

I bought two sets of this system… One for the back and the other one for the front of my property to video objects 100 feet away and sound. My cameras are recording 24/7, so the display does not go to a screensaver which is the only bad thing I have experienced. This system was the easiest and least expensive way to cover my property which has worked out well.

I really like the Lorex Digital Security System. The picture comes in clear day or night. I have never owned one before, but I really like this one. I needed 4 cameras so I ordered the 2704B. They were easy to put up and is easy to operate, but I still need to fine tune them, but not having trouble doing so.

very good camera

We bought this camera after someone keyed our new car while parked outside the house, it has clear image although it needed 16GB memory card to capture more videos, it serves us so well, we set it up on motion therefore the card have more space. I would give it 4 stars

158 out of 229



The cameras were easy to install, and system was easy to setup. A few of the menu items took a bit to understand. Overall video quality wasn't the greatest. Being pretty fussy with image quality, I felt that way, but the friend that I bought it for was pleased with it.

Lorex SD7

I have used wireless cameras in the past, but it has been several years. The Lorex installed very easily and quickly and I have been using it for over 30 days with no problems. I use it to watch the barn and a pregnant mare at Indiana Horse Rescue along with the property. I highly recommend this item! The night vision is wonderful. The sound could be better, but I didn't buy it for the sound - so it is not a problem. 4 STARS for Lorex!!

Love It

I didn’t expect much for the price but I was having issues with a man down, the street the camera could pick him up at night and kept in the night vision to see his pacing at night, they are wonder and have even survived holding up thru a tornado. I love them.

I was surprised how well the system works. Night vision is better than daytime. for a low to medium priced system , the user’s ability to record ,view and keep an eye on ones property while sleeping is impressive. Line of sight for wireless signal is great if your house isn’t covered in all siding.

Good for the money

I bought this kit from amazon. It came fast at a good price. The kit is pretty slick. If you have an outlet by the camera location, it's very simple to "install" if not.... you’re going to need to get power there.

Picture quality is on par with cost of the kit. Kind of grainy and out in my driveway, I could not give a very good description. Matter of fact, sometimes I have a hard time telling kids apart. I run this all winter down to -15 and it gets a little more grainy and slow but worked good all winter.

The range is kind of a bummer but can be fixed with range extender antenna. I have one camera in my house that is always a very good picture and never loses “connection”. I also have a camera out on the front of my garage. The receiver is in the lower level and the camera would be up 1 level and then 35' away. It’s constantly losing “connection" and screen goes blank for a few seconds.


All in all, I’m very happy that I bought this kit! The two-ways audio works awesome and has come handy many times. I have the largest memory card and I can record 2-3 days of constant recording, awesome. I play back on my computer to watch/delete clips, sometime it’s time consuming. (The vids are saved in ten minute clips) and it only records one camera at a time.

I think it's a good system for the money and I’m able to keep an eye on things!

Very Pleased

I really like the camera and the idea that I don’t have to hook it up to my computer to watch it is even better. The monitor works great and for the value it couldn’t be beat.

Awesome Surveillance System!!!

Look, if you want to pay two grand for a video surveillance system, this isn't for you. Since you're reading this review, you, like me, want an Affordable and Reliable System. I bought this at Fry's for 249.00. By the way, they matched Amazon, although I should have bought this on Amazon and saved the 18.00 sales tax and got the free shipping. This really is a plug-and-play system. Cameras have about a 65 degree angle. That's wide enough for me, but a fish eye lens would be perfect. Good video and the 2-way intercom are awesome. Night vision is superb. No interference with my Wi-Fi. The down side is that this is not an IP system so you can't view what's happening at home from your smartphone. However, it has some really good features like a built-in DVR in the monitor. All you need is a SDHC card (which is supplied) and you can record anything that triggers the motion detector. Some people complain that you need to be close to the cam before the motion detector is activated. Mine goes off at around 20 feet. You don't need more than that. You do need to plug the cam into an outlet. I drilled a hole and tapped some power and up I went. No interference issues either. The wireless range is great and I have a 35-hundred square foot home. Like I said, if you're expecting a top-of-the-line system, then go buy one. Me? I'm very happy with my purchase!

Know what you need security system for!

I was very new to security systems when I bought this. This is a good system if you are looking for something that does not need a lot of detailed video at greater than 20 ft. If you are looking for being able to get license plates outdoors in your driveway, for example, you might want to look for another product. If you are looking to use this indoors, in smallish rooms (e.g., convenience stores, offices), this system is fast and easy to set up. Probably also great as a deterrent.

It is an all in one system, so when I tried to hook up a hard drive to use for memory instead of the memory card, that wouldn't work. So you need to change out the memory card regularly. I tried to use the cameras with another DVR system, but these are wireless cameras and you need to make sure you get the right DVR system to pick up that wireless signal. It's an all in one system, not designed to expand to more than what it is built for.

Good puchase for the cost of the system

The Lorex surveillance system is the best priced system out there. I have been in the security/facilities field for over 20 years and find that the system has performed great to date (we purchased the system in January 2011). It runs 24/7 and covers four points on our house of about a 2000 sq. ft. home. It operates in the pitch dark with IR so lighting is not an issue. Placement of the main unit is key to the coverage area for the wireless system to work well and remember to keep the system under an eaves or cover; it is well made but not a full weather system. Just because it is marketed as a wireless surveillance system, you will still need to provide a 110 outlet for each camera and main unit. But with an extension cord or two it works just fine (easy install for you do it yourselfers).

I only rated the system a 4 because the system is marketed as a quad wireless surveillance system and only comes with two cameras (we bought two extra cameras to expand the system as well upgraded the memory card). Overall performance is two thumbs up.

Good System, Depends on Your Needs

I purchased the Lorex System last June. Installation was simple; however, the camera's range can be tricky. I've found 75-80 feet max with my unit. Somewhere it is mentioned that the cameras function in temperatures down to 14 degrees. Mine have functioned well all winter with temperatures consistently below that. I have four cameras installed and all have survived numerous thunderstorms, two tornados, (and now) blizzards and are still performing well. I mounted ours under the eaves (guttering) and that helps with protection of the cameras.

My experience -


* Excellent night vision

* Very Stable

* Easy setup

* All features have functioned well so far

* Good for general security (especially night)


* Limited camera range can be a problem

* Colors are washed out, cameras are sensitive to high contrast area i.e. bright sunlight/shade areas

* Features of people are fuzzy, but at least you know someone is there!


If you are looking for a crystal clear image and other high end features, you'll have to pay a lot more for a better system. If you're like me, and you just want added security (especially at night), this is a great way to have it.

Great system for the price

I bought this system to replace an older one. I am very impressed with this system. Excellent night vision and with a 16 GHz memory SDHC card, can record for quite a while. It’s very simple to download the recorded videos to a PC. The only drawback is the cameras cannot be used in direct weather conditions, but a little improvising can remedy that. Overall, a great buy for your money and according to Lorex service can be expanded to 6 cameras but they do not recommend that.

Wireless Cameras

I first bought 2 units. One worked fine but the audio is distorted on the other one at the front door where its most needed. Other wise they worked great. Then I bought 2 more and one has a very poor signal/range so I moved in closer to within 75 feet of the monitor. The signal still blinks in and out but is good enough. The motion sensors work good as well as the infared lightning. I was hoping to set all 4 camers on one monitor in the bedroom and put the other monitor in my office but you cannot sync the cameras to more than monitor which I think is a stupid design flaw. One great thing is you can put the monitors in sleep mode so the screens are dark unless someone walks in front of them the they light up and have a audible but adjustable alarm so I sleep better knowing they are monitoring the exterior of the house.

171 out of 229


Very good quality

Everything went well as far as hooking up the units. Very good picture quality and easy functions. But the range from the cameras to the monitor is decreased quite a bit by the number of walls it has to go through.

This item is working OK. The remote was not. I was told that the company will replace-- so far still waiting.

173 out of 229


Worked great but . . .

Item worked great out of the box; however, it was really hard to get it to actually record. We set ours up, then had our store broken into and because we didn't pres the right button on the recording device it was never recording. I called to try to fix the device and after putting me on hold for 45 minutes I finally gave up. The good news is the picture quality is really good and I like the wireless ability.

Good valu for the money

I had this camera for about two months in use. So far I like it. For those trying to decide is this camera for me, the first thing is you will need an electrical outlet nearby for each camera or you will need to drill through the wall to get to an outlet. Keep in mind it says wireless camera system and the only thing that is wireless is the camera signal transmission.

This is a decent system for areas where it would be hard to run wires from the camera to the monitor. I hooked up two cameras in my shop which is about 150 feet from the monitor. The reception was low so I got two adapters from eBay: davefant and the adapters are "SMA Male to RP SMA Female Adapter". Without these adapters Wi-Fi antennas will not work. Then I put on a Wi-Fi antenna that measured a little over 6 inches in length. That gave me a little better reception than the little antenna that comes with the camera. Then I made a Windsurfer Wi-Fi Booster from tin foil shown here: [...] to put on top of the Wi-Fi antenna on the camera that is in my shop. I don't think the foil reflector would hold up to outdoor elements though. Now I got full green reception bars. You need to point this foil reflector towards your monitor antenna. The signal is more directed at the monitor now. If you still don't get good reception put a foil reflector on top of the LCD monitor antenna too and point towards the camera. If you have other cameras in different directions the foil reflector will only work better to where you point the foil reflector. Get the pattern here: [...] Print this out and trace this on heavier paper. You can make the foil reflector bigger if you like. Please note this foil reflector works wonders with internet Wi-Fi for better reception.

Now for the monitor viewable size is 6 inches wide and 3 1/2 inches in height. Take a piece of paper and trace that out and you'll see the size. When you view in "quad" mode it sizes into 4 rectangles measuring 3 inches wide and 1 3/4 in height. Again trace this out on paper and see the size. Now you got the idea how big the monitor viewing picture is. Otherwise the whole monitor with frame measures 8 inches wide and 6 inches in height. Also on quad mode when you only use two cameras there will be two black out spaces on the monitor.

You can only record one camera at a time that’s detecting the motion. You can record 5, 15 or 30 seconds recordings. Example: Someone walked past your camera and now its recording for the seconds you choose. After the seconds are up and no motion it stops recording. It records on a secure digital card. I upgraded to a 16 gig card because I want lots of recording room.

One feature I like is that the monitor gives a chirping sound when motion is detected. You can adjust the volume by the remote or turn the volume off if this chirping sound bugs you. Example: You are sitting in the living room and your monitor is in the kitchen, your monitor will chirp to let you know that motion is being detected. When you hear that sound at least you'll know there is motion going on. This motion detection sound works with or without 'all the time recording' or 'motion recording' modes on or off. You cannot turn off the motion detection per camera; you will need to cover the motion sensor part with something such as black tape if you wish to turn the motion detection off per camera.

These cameras are made to be in a sheltered area. One of my cameras is exposed to below zero temps under my outside porch and still works fine. For identifying faces or license plates the object has to be within a few feet of the camera or you will never get a "positive" ID. Otherwise objects will be a little blurry farther away.

Decent for the price and ease of use

For the money and convenience, this is a decent product. Installation and set up were extremely easy. The picture quality is only average, especially at night. I have one camera pointing toward my cars parked in my driveway and if I needed to see someones face at night, I don't think I could make out any details. Also, the wireless connection between the camera and the screen interferes with my wireless G network connection (no problems with wireless N). Finally, the camera mounts are only average quality. It is very difficult to tighten the ball joint so that the camera does not move.

Great camera system for the money

I purchased the Lorex LW2702 system as a gift for my wife to monitor the horses in the barn. The system is easy to hook up and provides good picture quality in all lighting conditions. We were the most surprised by the night vision quality. Really clear picture even in totally dark barn at night. We haven't really used the recording feature since we use the system mainly as a monitor, but the instructions are pretty clear and the different recording modes are easy to set up from the menu. The intercom feature is cool but we don't use it much since the horses don't like it much. The only thing I think could be better is the range reception. Our barn is about 175 ft. away from the house and the closer camera gets great signal strength but the further camera gets lower signal and sometimes displays a "no signal" message. Moving the camera a bit helped slightly but amount of movement was limited because we wanted to maximize camera view. I just ordered a 2.4 GHz extension antenna and cable ($17) from Amazon to see if that will improve the signal on that camera. Overall this is a fun system to play around with and includes everything needed including the monitor!

Quality item for the price

I am pleased with this purchase and added two cameras to the system for the max 4 camera system. For the price ($249 on Amazon for 2 cams and monitor) it is well worth it. Those who are looking for HDTV quality picture should keep looking, but it will COST you. For what I use it for it is perfect. I set it to record motion at night and when we are away from home.

***update**** I now leave the cameras set to record motion 24/7. With a 16GB card I have more than enough memory to capture a month's worth of normal activity.

Don't judge the picture by what you see on the little 7 inch monitor. Just use the monitor for alerts or reviewing. If you capture something worth looking at twice you can insert the card on your computer to see it on your Computer screen or just connect the cable (provided) from the 7" monitor to your big screen TV and you will see very good detail. At least as good as any surveillance video I've seen on the six o'clock news. I really like the two way audio as a safety feature for my wife and kids to "answer the doorbell" when I am not at home and a stranger rings. I'll try to add sample video clip of a night shot I captured of me testing the sensor on my motion sensor activated porch lights. It will give you a laugh as well as an idea of its night vision.

Lorex LW2702 review, December 14, 2010

This system works well as long as you are able to mount the cameras near an AC outlet. The picture quality is pretty good for a surveillance system however I have experienced problems with the picture when the sun is shining on the cameras at certain angles. The picture seems to wash out and lose its color. I wish the cameras came with hardware that would allow them to be mounted under the eaves of a roof. I had to make my own mounting hardware in order to do this. The screen menus seem very easy to use although there are some functions that are only available on the remote and cannot be performed using the buttons on the screen. The price of additional cameras is too high. You will probably get a better deal if you just buy the system that comes with two cameras & an LCD screen and keep the screen for a spare. The cameras transmit clear pictures as long as you are not trying to transmit through too many walls. I tried to transmit from the camera on my front door to my shop (about 150 ft.) behind my house but the signal was too weak. An additional camera antenna may solve this problem. Even with the minor problems that I have experienced, I still think it's a pretty good deal for the price.

Really nice security system for the price

We have only had the system for about 2 months but for the price, it is really nice. It was very easy to install. I used extension cords in the attic and ran them to one box. The set-up is easy. I will be buying two more cameras soon to add to the package. Overall, I give it two thumbs up.

Excellent product! Easy installation, easy to use, and great pictures, recording for the money.

I would recommend this product for the average home user.

Nice starter system with flaws

Got this system a few months back and there's many things to like but a few hiccups which reduce the ratings. I have one camera mounted outdoors under the eves of the house to check out the front door and a second one is occupied as kitty cam in the garage (already helped me to chase down the neighbors dog eating our cats food!).


It's a small stand alone system which does a lot:

- reasonably sturdy construction

- simple installation with helpful manual

- about 8 feet of camera power cable (the "wireless" refers to transmitting the picture and sound but not the power, folks!) with an inline connector to go thru drill holes

- motion detection by the cameras

- sound both ways (from camera to base station and back)

- automatic infra red night illumination

- recording (motion triggered or around the clock) with replay on the base station

- power consumption seems reasonably low (according to my KillAWatt) with 1...3W for the cameras (max with IR LEDs on in the dark) and 5...10W for the base station (max with screen on)

- included 2GB memory card works well for my purposes (saves 20...30 days of motion triggered events)


- it's a 2.4GHz system and although it shouldn't it interferes with my 2.4GHz home phone. I hear a crackling sound when being on calls and need to switch off the Lorex base station to avoid an occasional dropped call.

- the user interface could profit from a number of improvements. One example is the ordering of motion triggered recordings. Instead of the most recent on top of the list of recordings it's on the bottom. Trust me, there can be many 15 second snippets throughout a day of motion triggered kitty cam events. It's a long list to scroll or page down! Also things appear to get out of order once the camera starts deleting older events when the included 2GB memory card gets full. It's no fun to hunt down the current day's recording in a list of 20 or 30 other dates.

- may be I'm too sensitive here but the cameras delivering a 4:3 picture and the display having 16:9 dimensions is just a poor combination and makes the whole thing appear cheap. Everything looks vertically compressed! Little fat people. Long slim cats...

- not all functions are available via buttons on the base station so the little remote control is absolutely needed for operation. Don't break it! Don't loose it!

- the IR LEDs glow red in the dark. Consequently these Lorex cams are actually really hard to overlook in the darkness.

To be considered:

- the cameras can't get wet and shouldn't be in the rain. Neither should they be in direct outdoor sun. Although reasonably sturdy they are not pure bred outdoor cams for all weather conditions.

- if using the cameras indoors, looking outside, keep in mind that this will deliver a good picture during the day but only the reflection of the infra red LEDs in the window at night, meaning no real picture (not sure if it's the IR coating of our windows or simply like this for all glass but it's not a fault of the cameras, I'd say). For the same setup (cams looking outside) also don't expect to have the motion detector working thru the window glass.

In short this is a little fun system but it has its shortcomings.

Great Item

Great Item, Great clear voice with no any interference, but the motion detection range is not enough, but overall is good product until now

nice but it doesnt worth

The camera is great, everything work good can’t complain about it but when it come to the wireless its very poor 'cause i tried to use one camera upstairs and another downstairs but the one downstairs loses the signal. That’s work only on the same level but it have to be inside not outside.

184 out of 229


Great Product

I have this unit in one of my storage units, figuring that it would be a low to descent quality but I liked the price of the unit as well as the ability to watch the screen for intruders while I was actually at the location, now, I won't tell you that this product is as good as the 15,000.00 system I have in my home, but I will tell you that for the money, you can't find a better product, the "night vision" works really well up to about 25 feet, the intercom system on the product comes in handy when someone you don't know approaches your door, and the picture quality during the day is awesome, I would recommend this item to anyone who asks. Two thumbs up!!!

Great value for money

We got this to use at our work to watch to see if material from our parts dept. was going on a walk about... it work great and easy to install. It’s a great value for money as we were looking at others that cost $2-3,000 so at $299 this was a fantastic buy.

It's worth the price

Pros: Very easy to use and configure. Also, my dad and I had a good surprise regarding the signal strength. We installed 4 cameras and the signal was very good even through the walls. The farther camera was installed in a distance more than 10 meters (through walls). Being a new wireless technology for surveillance systems this worth the price ($299) - for sure.

Conc: Did not test all features yet so I'll give my first impression... Instead of buying 2 more extra cameras, I bought another whole kit so we installed 4 cameras into 1 receiver (As single extra cameras are still expensive). However, as we have 2 receivers I tried to share the 4 cameras signal between both receivers (e.g. to use one upstairs and the other downstairs). But it is not possible. You can only pair the cameras to a unique receiver only. This is written in the manual... saying for security reasons on having anyone else sharing and grabbing your cameras signal...

Best system for the money - not perfect, but very good


easy setup, night vision, motion triggering, etc.


Need to buy a bigger memory chip (minimum 8 gigs), however, my digital camera and cellphone are the same way, that's just a fact of life these days from any company. Not a complaint, just an FYI.


For the money, the 2702 system (only $300 at Costco) is a great bargain. It’s not perfect, but you definitely get what you pay for 2 cameras and a monitor is not a bad deal.

Needs better IR and motion sensor range settings

Needs better IR and motion sensor range settings. It is not weather proof (light rain, fog) at night IR for cameras are sensitive and picture is distorted. Motion sensor range is short distance and trigger to the VCR it is too slow for recording movement. Better for indoor than outdoor system.

Overall a good value

I just finished a temporary installation of this unit. It does set up quickly; the cameras were recognized by the monitor with no problem. I do however have a couple of issues with the system. You cannot mount the camera to a ceiling as the image is inverted and there is no way to flip it. I wanted to install one on the ceiling of my porch, but it looks like I have to put it on a wall and the view is now blocked partially by the wall. The other issue is that they make the installation sound easier than it is. I cannot believe that no one mentions the need for an electrical outlet near the camera. The installation would be a breeze if you happen to have electrical outlets outside near where you want the camera, but I doubt that most people do. For me, I have to install two new outlets to plug the cameras into. As I do not want someone to be able to simply unplug the camera, I am going to drill a hole into the garage wall to run the wire inside the garage and put the outlet inside my garage. This is not a knock on the product, as there is no getting around it, but they make is sound so simple, when they say just plug the camera in and that is misleading. Overall I would recommend this unit as it is great for the price.

Best for the Buck

Excellent system that is easy to get it operational. Just plug and play. Easy to hide the recorder within the operating radius. Only drawback is that it should come with 4 cameras.

Great product

I am really pleased with how easy it was to install and use.

The camera is not really clear from a long range (over 150 feet) unfortunately. It has an annoying alarm that goes off between switching screens, but you can turn that off. It really has a lot of nice features. I’m happy with it so far.

192 out of 229


Good value for the money

I have had the camera system operating for just over a month and, so far, all the components have been working well. The entire system was plug-and-play ready right out of the box. The installation was fairly easy and straight forward.

I would highly recommend the following steps before permanently mounting the cameras in the desired locations:

Place the cameras and monitor in the desired locations. Turn on the system and ensure the signal from the cameras reach the monitor to your satisfaction. To save a lot of time adjusting the cameras when mounting permanently, take the monitor to the camera locations so you can view the picture on the monitor as you make adjustments to the cameras.

The not so great aspects of the system: There is a lag time in the motion sensor and delay in the recording when cameras are set for motion recording. The colors displayed on the monitor and in the recordings are off considerably. For instance, a solid black shirt is seen by the cameras as a medium brown color during the day, however, the night vision in total darkness is fantastic! The most annoying part of the system is the playback feature. You have to click on every single recorded event to see them all instead of seeing them play continuously. By inserting the SD card in the computer, I was able to play them continuously by viewing the SD card through the Windows Media Player.

I mounted the cameras under the roof eves and have them aimed in such a way that only close movement can trigger them. So far there haven’t been no false alarms from falling leaves or blowing winds.

If you need a monitoring system to alert you someone is at your door and to record activity close to the cameras without false alarms, this simple system is for you.

I'm hoping to get at least three years out of the system before it stops working. Time will tell.

Lorex Wireless Surveillance System

Just having purchased the Lorex Quad Digital Wireless Surveillance System all the reviews and write-ups almost made it sound to good to be true. But I have been very pleasantly surprised how well it performs. It is a complete, ready to use, out of the box system. Very easy to install, very easy to understand and follow instructions. This little kit performs like one that would cost much, much more. The cameras give a good picture, sound is so-so. The display screen is large and that helps if you split the screen to view more than one camera. I installed 3 cameras on mine and everything is working great. The display will also show a decoy photo making it look like an electronic picture album, but will show you the real camera view automatically if the camera sees anything. The only negative thing is you must have a power source close to where you mount the cameras. It has great night vision and an audible alarm when camera is triggered. This system gives you great value for your money. I would HIGHLY recommend this system to anyone who is looking for home or small business surveillance system.

Looking to monitor kids room

We were looking to replace the twin’s baby video monitor that stopped working after about 2 years. We found that this set was cheaper and had more options than the standard baby video monitors on the market. The picture quality is great; the sound fades in and out, yet can clearly hear when it is most important. However, one of the boys is PETRIFIED of the IR glow. The camera lens area glows red at night due to IR. We have since had to remove it from the twin’s room because little one REFUSED to sleep and if he did fall asleep he would wake in terror screaming. He is not a sensitive child what so ever!! For me, looking at the camera at night looks a little creepy (LOL). Now we have this set up monitoring our front and rear doors. Great picture!!! Love that we can add on 2 more cameras (may add another camera in the kid’s room when they get a little older and not afraid of the camera). I read reviews on the screen bring too small to see in the Quad mode and I have found that its do able for the purpose intended. If you want to see it bigger set it on the auto rotate!

Everything works the second time around

Installation was easy and everything works except the intercom features. When the TALK button at the monitor was pressed, the audio from monitor to camera was loud and clear; however, there was no audio response from camera when the TALK button was released. This was true for both cam 1 and cam 2. The call to Lorex technical support was no help so I returned the unit to Amazon for a replacement. The reason that I requested for a replacement instead of a refund is that I like the system and the chance of a second system having the same intercom malfunction is probably quite small. Secondly, I invested a lot of time to install the system so that a person could not easily unplug the power cord of the camera. Here is how I did it. I have an outside 110v outlet that I connect the cam power cord to. I went to Home Depot to get 10 feet long metal wire channel, and a few 1/2 inch size brackets. I cut the channel to the length I need to conceal the cam power cord. The other things I did was to add an elbow that allowed the cam power cord to turn 90 degrees and a L-shape metal bracket with couple screws to conceal the cam power cord plug. When painted to match my sidings, it is not noticeable at all except the camera mounted about 8 feet above.

Follow up Comment 8/14/10

Received replacement system 8/12/10. This time the intercom system works. I rate the system 4 stars this time around instead of the original 2 stars. For $299, I agree that the pros certainly outweigh the cons.

Very good!

I bought the set with 2 cameras plus one extra camera.

Very good price with good performance.

I put one in front of the entrance, one facing backyard and one facing garage.

Quality at night is pretty good.

But you have to think where to plug into your electric outlet.

Good choice for easy install surveillence system

I received my Lorex from Amazon very quickly and after take out the box I finished

the installation in a few minutes. The installation is very simple, only you will need is an electrical point (100-240VAC) for power supply to cameras and LCD display. The record motion feature work fine and save memory space in SDHC card. The video quality is good enough for the purpose of the system. I'm using the 2-way Intercom and its working fine, the sound is clear not too loud but enough. The range of the signal 2.4GHz is good; it can pass through my brick walls of my house with no loss for about 60-75 foot. The night vision of cameras is good; the cameras have a LDR sensor to light infra-red LEDs only in the night. It's a very good system and I'm very happy, my house is safer now.

Lorex LW2702

I have had the LW2702 for a month now and very pleased with its performance. I live in a duplex and the cameras are just outside my front and back doors approximately 60 to 80 feet from the receiver. The video and audio reception is very good. Although I didn't need the audio portion I can hear my neighbor’s conversations when they are on the back porch. The motion detection portion of the system works as expected. I've had a few false triggers, one when the sun was hitting the bushes close to the front door with a little breeze moving them. Not sure what the others were unless it was a close flying moth because nothing showed up on the recording when viewed. It has added a little more comfort for my wife when sleeping. The monitor has a indicator that reads "New" that shows if motion has been picked up and recorded along with an audible alarm. Once viewed the indicator is turned off.

I purchased this system because of the reviews it got. Other system of this caliber didn't seem to hold up. Here's my list of things I like about it. Very easy to set up, picture quality is good, motion detection and recording as expected along with night vision, and no interference with other systems using the same frequency. There is only one thing I can think of that would have been nice and that is a wider view for the camera. Because you are limited on the power cable length, the cameras have to be mounted close to an outlet. This makes it hard to configure a wide view of the area you want. To solve this problem I made a 25 foot extension power cord. I'm thinking of getting one more of these to have a four camera system and using the extra monitor in the living room. The other monitor is on my wife's night stand. Hope this has been helpful.

Great Range - Very good Quailty - Easy to install

I usually do not write reviews for products but I was very impressed with this one. I had tried several wireless camera solutions but they failed miserably, range was always the issue. This device had everything I was looking for.

1. Great range - my house is built from reinforced concrete. The cameras work perfectly up to a distance of 15 meters through at least 3 walls.

2. Setting it up is super simple. Just plug them in and all is set to go.

3. Very easy to use the video frame

4. Talk back function is a very useful adds on.

5. Good video quality

6. Good night vision

7. The material of both the cameras and the frame are very good.

8. A/V out feature is great if you want to connect it to an external monitor

9. Super compact photo frame like LCD

I would strongly recommend this to anyone who is looking for a wireless solution that actually works. I have only had it for a few weeks now and it is working fine. I will make sure to update this review if anything changes.

Very Good

This product works just like it is advertised. Easy to install, easy to operate and  it’s easy to understand the instructions. Works good in the dark as well as in the light. I would definitely recommend this to friends.

Great system

I had these up and working in 10 minutes. It gives a good picture and range. I can review the memory card on my computer.

Great system, range exaggerated though

I have two of these systems in use and am quite happy with them overall. I have two of the cameras outdoors in Vermont temperatures but protected from direct rain under eves, and they do fine all year.

I would say these systems have just two flaws, first the display is only 7" diagonal, pretty small, in quad display mode the four images are too small to see what's going on, but in single image mode its fine and you can have it scroll through the four images in slide show fashion. It does have video out so you could connect it to a larger monitor.

Second and more significant, the range is vastly exaggerated! The farthest I have one is 150 feet away which is an almost unobstructed line of site except for one window, and it just barely makes it with two or three bars of signal out of five. Since the signal is digital if it is weak the picture will just flash on and off instead of becoming grainy just like with digital TV. If the signal has to pass through several walls or obstructions expect less than 100 feet or even 50, depending on the type of obstruction. The coaxial fitting antenna's do detach so perhaps the motivated techy could get much more range with a larger or external mounted antenna?

The night vision is very good in my opinion. Motion sensing is fairly short range, depending on the size of the object, good enough though. I've never been of the camera side of audio communication, and expected it to be poor with that tiny speaker, but I talk to my cat when she walks by the cameras and she seems to hear me fine, which amuses me to no end. Cheers, Jesse.

Awesome Add-on Security System

I installed this at my aunt's house because she is the only one living there. She locks herself in her room at night once she sets her alarm. She would get people at her front door, but was too afraid to go and check. Now with this system, she can see who it is and converse with them through the intercom feature.

It was super easy to install, however, the power cords for the camera is really short (5 feet). I had to splice 23g wire to them and make them about 20 feet. Overall a very simple solution, considering I had to do the same to my previous camera system for my house. I hope this helps someone out!

Needs better software

The system has excellent picture and audio...however the audio cannot be made to continuously stay on which is an annoyance since this was used as a high tech baby monitor. The motion sensor needs a sensitivity adjustment as well due to the fact my toddler could wake up, move around, and climb out of bed and open the door before the screen would come on and start recording or displaying the movements. This makes a great camera to pick up large adult movements, but not so much for the little ones. Also since this system comes with only two cameras (with the ability to add two more) it would be nice if it had a spit screen feature for just two screens and not the quad display which wastes half of the screen if you only have two cameras.

Love it! this is my SECOND set!

The clarity of the recorder is just great. We have 2 cats so I can tell you, small animals do not trigger the motion recorder. This is my second set I use one for the house and one for the garage. Night vision is excellent. There is a zoom feature that will give you more detail. I highly recommend this system. Easy install. You need to have an outlet to plug the cameras and monitors into (no batteries).

Good low cost system with some limitations

This wireless camera system includes a 7" LCD monitor and 2 cameras with sound pickup (expandable to 4 cameras) for $290. It transmits over 2.4 GHz and the transmission is digital over a reliable data channel so it doesn't suffer from the interference problems common with analog transmitters. The wireless transmission seemed robust and is by far the best I've seen of anything in this price range.

It records to an SD card and has some night vision capabilities (using IR LED's in the cameras). It also has a PIR motion sensor in the cameras so can record on motion. The motion triggering is somewhat buggy though as I found it will record for the preset time period (5/15/30 seconds) after detecting motion, but will not continue to record past that period even if there is still motion occurring. Not ideal, but still usable. It has a function to allow automatic overwriting of the oldest recordings on the SD card.

It also has a 2 way intercom mode between a camera and the LCD display. It's convenient to run the cameras and/or display from portable power as the display is powered from 5V and the cameras from 9V.

The problems I found (in no particular order):

(1) It causes intermittent interference with my Logitech wireless mouse which uses the same 2.4 GHz band.

(2) There is color distortion such as visible with the white colored trees (that are actually green).

(3) Night vision capabilities are meager, but the best I've seen for anything in this price range.

(4) The resolution is supposedly 640 x 480, but the picture noise is high enough that it is roughly equivalent to decent quality 320x240

Overall it's a good usable system for the price, but the image quality is lackluster, especially at night. And the image quality is marginal (at best) for identifying perpetrators though it's still the best I've seen in this price range.

Near-excellent little set!

This was an incredibly easy surveillance system to set up. Connect antennae to the cameras, plug cameras in to the wall, Plug LCD monitor into wall, done! Put the included SD card in the LCD monitor for recording, and you're away.

The good:

1) Very, very easy to set up, with a nice little installation card showing you what you need to do.

2) Inclusion of a reasonably-sized SD card (2GB).

3) Solid-feeling cameras.

The not so good:

1) Not particularly high resolution images from the cameras at 640x480. Refresh isn't instant, either, so you're not getting smooth video but rather "frames" of video. This is done to conserve memory on the SD card, I'm sure, and because the wireless system probably can't handle that kind bandwidth.

2) LCD casing feels fairly cheap, though it does the job!

3) Power cables not particularly long, though this is easily solved with an extension cord, of course...

The bad:

1) Despite being touted as indoor/outdoor cameras, they are NOT designed for use in high humidity/wet areas. They need to be kept under cover. This is potentially a deal-breaker for many, I'm guessing.

2) The range on the cameras isn't amazing. For a smaller place, they'll be fine, but others might prefer something with more range.

3) If you lose/break the remote you're kind-of screwed. Pretty much ALL the controls are on it!

4) No way to remotely check the feed if you're out/away from your home/business etc.

Overall, this is a perfectly serviceable set of cameras. Be aware of their limitations and you really wouldn't be disappointed with this purchase!

Great for simple monitoring!

We have this set up to monitor the front door and the baby's room. It is nice to have the monitor be mobile; it can be with us in our bedroom if the doorbell rings or the baby cries. I can talk to the guest or baby and let them know I am on my way.

This set up is wonderful if you have a 2 story house and would like to know who is downstairs knocking on your door. Is UPS or is it a solicitor ignoring your sign out front? Now I know before answering the door. If it is a sketchy looking stranger, I communicate via microphone. I feel much safer at home alone when I can monitor the outside.

Set up is super simple too, does not feel intimidated if you are not tech savvy. I plan to add a camera for the backyard in the future when the kids are playing.

A consistent picture w/o interference but the cameras lose the signal occasionally. I've had difficulty with cheaper units even maintaining images due to the placement of the cameras. My cameras are placed approx. 25 feet from the LCD. It is better than the cheaper units you can get (like Swann). Image detail could be better; recognition of people is somewhat questionable at a distance.

Excellent for their intended purpose

We are using these cameras in our Church for security monitoring. They work just as advertised, but don't expect features that are not promised. For example, the cameras cannot dump the video data directly to a computer on the network. In fact, the cameras do not communicate on a normal 802.11-based network. They communicate with the viewer panel and the video is recorded on memory sticks there.

However, with sufficient storage space, you can enable motion detection and then simply dump the video files once each week. Based on the promise of the products, I'm very happy with the results.

Good deal...

This is a great deal for the price and is easy to set up and use it has many great features like motion detection. You can use it as an intercom as well; I would suggest getting a bigger SD card for it. This nifty little video surveillance system will provide adequate security and a peace of mind for home or even your business. The quality and reception is very good. I would recommend this system!

Worth the money

I bought this from Amazon two weeks ago and received the package a few days later. I set it up right away. For $300, both cameras worked with receiver perfectly. The quality of image may not be the best during the day, but the night vision (you got to see it to believe it), sensor, recording when sensor tripped (or recording all the time) and alarm certainly make up for it. I live in a 3 story townhouse. I have no problem with signal reception. My mother is over 70 years old and she wants one after playing with my cameras 15 minutes in my house. I would recommend it.

Easy to set up

I received the product today and had it up and running in under an hour. What took the longest was getting electricity to the number one camera. Once I had all that corrected the set up was fast. The pairing was simple and the instructions are easy to understand. I am happy with the purchase.

This one is a winner!

I have to agree with the other 5 star reviews for this product. After surfing lots of reviews and debating on whether to go wired or wireless, especially after some horrible wireless fiascoes in the past, I decided to try this Lomax system. I had it up and running in minutes without looking at the manual but the real test, that being range/reception, was what I was worried about. Camera on one side of the house, receiver on the other, and no problems. Pictures are good, not high def, but acceptable and low light or dark performance is great. I have nothing to complain about. Like some others, I now want 2 more cameras and have ordered another complete system as individual cameras run about 140 from Amazon. A pair is only 20 dollars less than the whole system and having another receiver/monitor is going to be great. It makes a great bedside monitor and the video storage works great for later review. Buy this product. I don't think you will regret it.

Dead Easy to Use and it Works Like a Charm

I was unpacking this even as the UPS guy was pulling away from my curb and after giving the contents in the box a quick once over, I set the instructions aside, checked out the monitor, fished the plug from the box. Then I did the same with one of the cameras. I called my husband away from his computer, plugged in a camera, told him to hold it, then I went into the next room and plugged in the little color monitor. And what do you know; there he was smiling at me on the monitor. It was dead easy. No muss, no fuss, it just worked. Then all of a sudden my hubby vanished from the monitor and I got no signal. It took me about ten seconds to realize that it was switching to the second camera, which I hadn't set up. I pushed the menu button on the back of the monitor and figured out how to turn the camera off in another five seconds and I also learned that you can add two more cameras to the system for a total of four.

The camera works a treat in low light and the system does what it's supposed to do and it's so simple to set up even a non-techie older person like myself can figure it out. We set up the system, without ever taking the instructions out of their plastic baggie. This really is a hassle free system. We use it for monitoring our grandson's bedroom and my husband's workshop out in the garage, which works out well, because the cameras want electricity, which would be the only downer if you were setting them up outside to monitor your house, because you'd have to figure out how to get power to the cameras. We didn't have that problem. Gosh we just love having this system. I can't praise it enough.

Very cool and works great

We've needed a way to see who's been around the house during the day (kids, dogs, potential evildoers) and didn't want to have to string a bunch of wire around.

This system comes with two wireless cameras that are easy to set up, auto-record events, can see in the dark and act as a two way intercom as well. Please note: the term "wireless" means that you don't have to run video cable between the cameras and the base station. You still have to plug the cameras and base station into your house's power. It's very convenient to be able to drag the base station to different parts of the house so I'm not stuck in one spot if I'm expecting a delivery and need to sign for something.

You're able to select different record qualities, schedule recordings, trigger times, etc. using the menus built into the monitor and the remote control gives you the ability to start recording video without having been triggered by detected motion.

I found a unique use for one of the cameras the other day. We had a mother squirrel set up a nest under the covered portion of our deck. I mounted the camera in such a way where I could see inside the nest and could watch the squirrels day or night and auto-record their comings and goings. Very cool!

Overall, I'm quite happy with the unit. It was very easy to set up and since its wireless; I can move cameras and the base station easily.

Great System for the money,

After a breaking, we were looking for a video system we could afford, & easy to set up. This was perfect, easy to set up with good picture! We have a Garage at the end of driveway & it has good reception from there (200Ft). We now feel a little safer!

Great system but....

I purchased the system to keep tabs on the front of the house since we have no readily available windows to see out.

The unit was very easy to install. I only installed 1 camera. That’s all I needed for this application. Took me about 15 minutes and the camera was up. The hardest part was drilling the pilot holes for the screws. Once the camera was mounted, I installed a 16 GB card (purchased separately) it was just a matter of turning on the control panel. The system cannot use a card larger then 16 GB but according to the manual an 8 GB card will hold 14+ hours of video.

The unit comes with a little mini remote. Everything you need to do can be done from the remote. The menu system is very easy to learn. You really don't need to read the manual. I set the system up to record automatically whenever it senses movement. There are 3 settings for recording in automatic motion sensed movement 5, 15 and 30 seconds. I watched a 30 second video and it seemed like way to long so I went to 15 seconds. Don't freak, it records as long as there is motion so the neighbor’s dog won't trigger 12 hours of video when he stops digging in the front yard. The movement sensor works great. It records when people walk down the side walk across the street which is about 100' away.

However, there are a couple of things I wish I had known before I purchased. First a minor issue. The video card is not easily accessible. It would have been great if they had made the slot on the top of the unit or on the side. Nope, it’s around the back. Every time you want to remove the card to look over the videos you have to turn the unit around. My second issue is with resolution. 640x480 looks like the video you see on the evening news from the local convenience store stick up. If you have to identify from the video this records, ain't happening. The video is ok but not clear. I guess, after looking at the pics in the supplied manual, I expected too much from this product.

If you want higher resolution you'll have to search elsewhere and pay more $$$$$$.

Nice simple surveillance system

The system comprises two cameras that require mounting, not 4. There is no DVR machine, which simplifies the system. Instead of recording on a DVR, the images are recorded on a card that is inserted into the LCD screen. A 2 GB card is provided; however you can purchase a 16 GB for about $35 or so additionally. (Also, extra cameras can be purchased, to a max of 4 totals, at about $140 each additional camera.) Now, the cameras are not wireless, but the remainder of the system is. However, this means that the cameras each have to be plugged in to a power source. This can require the most challenging part of the installation, as you might need to get a long ladder and do some manipulating to conceal the power cords, as well as adjusting the camera angle to get optimal imaging. The camera lens angle is very small, limiting the range of the image that can be captured, but is sufficient for basic security purposes. The images are in color on the LCD screen, with audio sound. There is the added advantage of two-way audio, as you can use the LCD screen to talk to the individual you are looking at through the camera like an intercom. The camera has infrared capability also, to manage night images.

One of the reviews below is incorrect or rather incomplete: The cameras do not only record images by motion-detection, as you can also record on a pre-programmed time schedule, and also record on demand with one touch; it is not just motion-detection. And the motion detection appears to work well close up, but don't expect it to be effective at distances over 15 feet; the LCD screen gives off a beeping signal when motion is detected, which notifies you if you are planning to monitor the cameras but happen to be looking away from the LCD screen at that time.

The advantages of the system are no DVR, easy LCD screen, two way audio. Disadvantages are narrow camera lens, 2 and not 4 cameras included, cameras not being wireless and requiring power connectivity, and not being able to monitor the images remotely on an outside computer, such as from work. And it looks like DVR-4 camera systems are now almost comparably priced to the cost of this system plus purchasing 2 additional cameras. So this is a nice system if you have easy power outlets close to where you want to mount the cameras, and don't want DVR, and prefer to have intercom capability. But if you want a system that you can monitor remotely from work or another external site, then this is not the surveillance system for you.

Exactly What We Wanted

I work for a church that has had a couple of break-ins and if we had this system in place, it would have answered a lot of questions sooner. I had done some extensive research and couldn't find exactly what we wanted until the Lorex LW2702. We had the system up and running in less than an hour and it only took another 20 minutes of reading the manual to understand how to work everything. When I leave for the day, I turn on the motion record and turn it off when I arrive in the morning. I bought the 16GB card and it holds up well for holding the recordings. Although, if we could increase the memory a bit more, it would probably be better (that’s my only gripe). I just erase the card every morning. The 2-way intercom is a bonus that we enjoy, as I will sometimes lock myself into the building and this way, when someone comes to the door, I can answer through the camera as opposed to going to the door and answering it. I was concerned about the wireless cameras working in our building as it is an old stone church built in 1902 and was built from rocks that were dug from the ground when they were digging to make a canal in our area. But it was a needless worry, the pictures and sound is clear. I would recommend this to anyone looking for an easy to use system and in fact we are considering adding another camera or two (that is a bonus as well, the system comes with two cameras and you can add up to two more). The reviews that other people made also helped in our decision to give this a try. We were not disappointed.

Review for Lorex LW2702

Overall, this is a great system. I was impressed with the reception and the graphics. That being said, I had to return it for two reasons. 1) The system did not come with a remote control. I called Lorex customer service and they can easily take care of that. 2) Although the system is described as an indoor/outdoor system, it is NOT weatherproof. I always thought that if a surveillance system was outdoor, it could withstand the weather. When I called customer service about this, they pointed out that the lens cannot get wet, otherwise it may not work correctly. In addition, there can be no moisture allowed into the system itself. I only discovered this after hooking up the system.

Just keep in mind that although it is a good system, it is NOT waterproof.

As is stated on the giftbox as well as the Lorex website, the cameras can be installed outdoors, but in a sheltered location.

Great product! I purchased this system with an additional 2 cameras and my whole house is protected. Great quality, great reception (even through walls) and easy install. I really like that I can keep an eye on the swimming pool at all times. The internal record mode and intercom system is an extra bonus. No regrets with this purchase.

A Perfect Simple Solution

I am a retired Techno-Geek, a geezer-geek if you will. I have purchased and installed many systems in my time, but from a very good performance vs. very easy installation vs. good value basis, this is one excellent little system. A lot of good thought has gone into designing it, and it worked perfectly upon installation. Someone in one review complained of the blurry camera - but the cams come with a protective plastic film over the lenses ;-)

This little rig has a nifty little remote that will allow you to select motion record or continuous record, and all of the functions - this is very cool. The system took me about 15 minutes to get turned on to check the functions of everything, and another 2 or 3 hours to select the position of the cameras at the back and front of the house. Once positioned, all I had to do was to plug them in and turn them on.

The only complaint I MIGHT have is, I would like to see the camera power cables a foot or two longer to help with camera placement. I will be extending one cable myself. Perhaps Lorex could sell or include one EXTENTION power cable of about two feet in length. The audio speaker is not very loud, nor is the alarm. It won't wake you up from a sound sleep, but if you are in your office working, it will let you know that the UPS person is at the door. A main key to this system is "how very, very simple it is to set up and install to get good results."

Camera to screen (I love the little screen on my night table) range is about 50 to 75 feet. Yeah, we would all love to have a cam to screen range of 300 to 1,000 ft. but that is beyond the ability of most technology right not. This is a good little home/light commercial system. I plan to get another one for my wife's business.

Great Camera and I have been waiting for exactly this

I have a remote controlled gate at the end of a long driveway (appx 50') and placed a camera at the end to see visitors and hopefully be able to communicate with them. I was able to do both after a very easy installation. Motion detection is great. Records with ever trigger. I did buy the 16 GB card. I bought from Costco online since it is only $299 there. I liked it so much I bought another one just for the cameras since it is about the same price to buy the cameras separately. Last night it rained and I heard this funny noise coming from the front door. IT was picking up the rain at the camera locations! I did not see a sensitivity adjustment unfortunately. For the price I cannot expect it. I cannot tell you how nice to see quad pics from around my property and to know if something does happen it will be recorded. Love it!

Great system for the Money

I got this system from Costco for $299.99. It works great right out of the box. Good range on the cameras. Mine are 60 feet or so apart on opposite sides of the house and I get good reception anywhere inside on the receiver. Night vision range is better than expected. I'm not using the audio feature, so I can't comment on it. I want to add two more cameras, but there $170 each from Lorex, so it's cheaper to buy a second system from Costco and keep the second receiver as a backuCreatep. Upgrade to a 16 GB card ($35 on Amazon) and get 24 hours of video recording.
