1. This camera features an ultra-low light sensitive image sensor and therefore does not feature Infra-Red LEDs. The camera requires ambient lighting (for example, street/building lighting, star or moon light) to render a night time image. In total darkness (zero Lux) the camera will not produce a night time image and therefore the camera should not be installed in completely dark areas.
2. When connected to a 960H capable DVR
3. Wall mount required for outdoor installation. Not intended for submersion in water. Installation in a sheltered location recommended.
* If light level is too low, camera will switch over to B/W for increased light sensitivity.

I am on phase - three for my home security network. This system is hard wired but for the reliability it is worth the extra installation effort to properly install. The set-up and connection was successful. I appreciate the pan, tilt and zoom features. The night vision allows me to track all the critter traffic across the lawn, the mailbox vandal- joker and the high school students performing 3:30 am pranks like turning on the water hoses (I removed the handles to prevent future temptations). I don't have to say a word to instigators because all of their shenanigans are recorded. My family rests peacefully knowing that the cameras eyes are on our property.
I purchased this camera in a package on a 16 channel DVR. The camera is an awesome camera. It has great speed and clarity if you use the higher settings. The problem it has is that there is a seam that runs across the plastic protective lens towards the base. When you try to view at an angle towards 90 degrees, the picture becomes blurry. Customer service was trying to tell me that it was the camera when clearly the seam is the problem. I called them again and got a great rep. named Karen and she found the same thing at their warehouse. She did tell me that they have removed that seam in the new units. I am able to exchange my lens thanks to her. This thing without that seam will be perfect. I can zoom in about a block away and see clearly. The one star rating is only for people to view and know the problem. Once I get the new lens it will be a 5+ star rating.

These PTZ cameras are a great find!! The image quality is great even in low lighting! They are easily installed and work well with my system. Thanks Lorex for a great product!!

Anyone who choses to purchase these cameras is doing their self a great favor. They work well in low lighting and the zoom is incredible! The Installation is easy and I love the preset factor! Thanks again Lorex!
The camera is better than expected, but not excellent. I could see across the street. I am able to zoom. I do not see license plates clearly. I cannot see as well as I would like to at night (and yes lights are around).

I just installed it last week and so far it is working as expected. Quality of the picture is great. Initially it took some time to configure but after reading manual on line I was able to set it up right.
It is a great camera for the price. I bought two and had not installed the second one yet.
Hopefully, it should work and last longer.

The camera has flaws, such as blurry points of view at various points of view during the day time. Although at night time, it is absolutely amazing, because everything is lit up better than with IR illumination, and I am very happy with this camera system.
I am very happy with my system and have order 2 more cameras. These PTZ cameras are world class quality. I highly recommend this product because it exceeded the expectations.

This is a great camera. The pan tilt and zoom are very fast. The quality of the picture is very good . The camera was easy to install.Just follow the instructions given to you in the booklet.
This is a new upgrade to my Lorex System Very easy to hookup and Great Tech Support when needed
For the money there should be no blurred area like is present on the plastic dome; I consider this a serious defect.
I like everything else about the camera so am not returning it but it doesn't have the proper field of view at the height I have it mounted; I'll try turning it sideways but this will introduce issues with it 'jumping' as it changes view.
Location: Roseville ca
The camera has a great picture. I can control it from my iPad or iPhone. Easy to install, but does need to be installed up high. So far I love it.
Lorex has produced a Great camera. It was just what I wanted. ***However be aware of the limitations of the pan because the Dome has a Line (Flaw) in it. I installed 2 cameras one at 14 ft and another at 20 ft and the line in the dome made them unusable when zooming out. if you will be using them for an overhead only then you might be satisfied. if you want to zoom across a room or lot I believe you will have some issues as I did. I contacted Lorex and they are aware of the "Flaw" but have no fix. If they had worked, they would get a 5 star rating. The only reason I did not rate it a 1 star is because the Camera itself is excellent. Do your homework for this Camera.

This product worked great for 3 days. It is installed under the porch. the camera became blurry and you cant adjust the focus from the app or the computer what you see is what you get. The camera dome is a bad design it has a manufacture defect which causes the lens when in full tilt position to have a blur in the line of view 360 degrees around. which would make it a 360 pan by 60 tilt. yes 60 if you have a two story plus building and it is installed at the very top it will see everything but on a one story under the gutters the system is horrible. The manufacture knows that this is a known issue and would tell you send it back for a refund instead of coming out with a single piece dome that is molded from one piece not two. Lorex Customer support will have you on hold for hours at a time and when you write a review they take weeks if any to call you back or answer. when they do the question or complaint you give them returns a negative response, this is my last item ever ordering from lorex since they pretty much told me in a email to send the unit and camera back for a refund. and to think i have ordered over 12 dvr systems for myself and other people. NEVER AGAIN go somewhere else for better service and product. IJS... Honest review and they probably wont post it.

Works nice good deal too!
I have to completely agree with Mike's review. The issue isn't the camera or speed for us. The major issue is on the design of the dome. The dome has a groove in the glass that goes all around in a line near the upper part of the dome. If the lens happens to be looking thru the groove the image becomes fuzzy and distorted obviously. Why would they design this product like this I have no idea. It really narrows down your field of view to a very impractical range (at least for us). I called customer service to see what my options were and it was basically to return it and get something else. All we really want is a replacement dome glass without the groove in but they don't have that. I'm probably going to have to go with another brand and it's a shame because we've already spent a few thousand on Lorex product in our business. This issue was definitely a design flaw that was overlooked but the customer shouldn't have to suffer the consequences, especially with it comes to security.
Found the camera to have shading or hazing in certain positions not very satisfied
Camera also seems to be sensitive to certain requirements such a severe cold

Very impressive camera. I purchased this PTZ to augment my Blackbox 2 DVR that came with four LW2232 wireless cameras. The clarity of the PTZ is really good compare to the 4 wireless cameras because of the 700TVL and the hardwire. Installation was pretty straight forward. Be sure to do all connections and power up prior to install to ensure that the PTZ is correctly functioning. Since this was my channel 5 camera, it took more than selecting the changes on the Lorex Stratus software to reflect the 5th camera. I had to also change the dip switch setting to 5 on the base of the camera itself for it to recognize the controls. The default will be channel 1 out of the box. All this is indicated in the instruction manual. There is also several good video clips on the Lorex website pertaining to installation and setup. There are two sets of cables. 100ft length and a shorter, I believe 6ft section. I used cable tracks to cleanly cover my cables inside the home since I decided it was only a short run from the outside camera to the DVR. I ran the longer cable through my exterior wall and was able to place all of the shorter cable assembly into the outside mount's housing. Be sure to seal the housing to the wall to prevent water and dust from getting to your connections. Caulking should be sufficient. I also used weather resistant tape for the connections. On last note, make sure the camera is mounted as high as possible. This allows the lens to look down instead of out horizontally. The latter will interfere with view. This is also note several times by Lorex. There is actually a optimum angle setting. A blurriness will be caused by a seam around the circumference of the outside protective dome when the lens try to view higher than the angles referenced by Lorex. Mounting it high will avoid this especially if you need the PTZ to zoom out a ways in the distance.
Shipped quickly and installed easily. Purchased one last year and has worked great. Bought 2 more this year and a 16 channel dvr receiver to expand our system. They work great and are a great value.
Unfortunaltely this camera gets a very low score - I am very pleased with its speed, but I think there is a problem with the automatic focus.
I have taken a snapshot of what it looks like in broad daylight, and I can't help but feel that it should have been a lot better?
I have tried to use the focus +/- on the web interface from my Mac, but it does not seem to have any effect on the picture quality.
Am I missing something?

I purchased this camera along with my new LH 150 ECO 4 8 channel vcr. Instructions were straight forward and to the point. Two things to remember, use channel 1 for your tilt pan it make things simple and secondly don't forget to disable the motion control on Channel 1. Other wise great price, super resolution and high quality equipment.

For the price this is a very good value. I shopped around on the internet and found the best price on B & H Photo. I received fast delivery and the CCV camera came complete with all mounting brackets, mounting hardware, cables, power supply, and mounting anchors. The unit was packed very well with foam packing and factory seals on the boxes. I would buy again from B & H Photo with confidence.
Lorex Stratus CCV system with 960 H cameras.
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Good camera.. The night vision is better than camera with HD night vision.
Very happy with the quality of picture

ptz cameras are amazing. only had them for two days, looks like they have to be really high to work well at distance. I am happy with them.
Location: Dallas, Texas
These PTZ cameras are world class quality. The speed of the motor which goes from preset to preset is unbelievable!
I'd recommend these to anyone!
I would recommend this product to any one surveilling multiple points at one time. The fact that the camera can turn 360 degrees gives you great flexibilitty in viewing.
I bought two Lorex PTZ cameras to supplement a Chinese system I bough about a year ago, but I never got around to installing the Lorex units. I did kast week. They don't PTZ with the DVR I have now, but they are so much better that I can actually see my entire acre at night instead of just grey ghosts. I am so completely impressed that I am going to buy a complete Lorex system for Christmas. It's 01:30 in the morning. I see my dog on patrol with the Lorex camera. I see NOTHING with the other IR cameras, which are placed within inches of the Lorex and are adjusted for correct focus. The difference is amazing. Please buy quality. You get what you pay for - and I am going to get an additional year warranty on my cameras. I think that's very fair. They sat in boxes for that entire first year.
We decided on these PTZs after comparison with others, due to price/quality. They installed easily and the instructions were clear to follow. We are using them with the LH150 (echo 4) series DVR for surveillance of the front entrance to our subdivision. The video output to our monitor has excellent clarity of detail and the recorded images at 960H are equally clear with vry good accuracy. This DYI project saved us easily $1500 in addition to having better quality gear.

Great camera, well built, was easy to install and setup. Would be even better if it had auto-follow (auto tracking feature). Only one complaint (and 4 starts, not 5) that seam, or whatever it is in the clear cover makes a fuzzy band on all pictures above certain angle, so to avoid it you have to mount camera pretty high.

I had this for awhile and just installed it recently. After I set 8 set points around my garage interior I set it a cruise and was simply amazed at the clarity of the picture...even in the near darkness (no lights on) at 11:00 pm. They claim low light required and they mean it.... Setting up at first was a bit fuzzy (factory setting of dip switches is for No 1 camera on the VCR so if you place on any other position, do not forget to adjust dip switch to correspond to that Number....reading the instructions thoroughly always helps.......:) Other than that...simple .... set up the desired set points and Voila! ...you have 360 view of the premises when on "cruise" mode. Just sorry that I did not have the time to install it before...............WOW.
My car was vandalized about two week ago so I made the decision to invest in a surveillance system. The system itself works wonderfully well. Day time is in color, and night vision is in black and white. At night time, the camera can see just fine with normal street lighting.
I did some heavy research before purchasing this camera. The picture quality is sharp, and the controls are very responsive.
I would definitely recommend this camera and would gladly purchase another.
Location: Grants Pass, Oregon
The cameras are great indoor or close up. Outdoor the zoom causes distortion in focus. Overall the cameras are working as expected.
I've had several security camera systems in the past, this one has the best picture of any system I've used. Tech support was hard to get ahold of. And some of the instructions for hooking up multiple cameras could have been a little more clear, but once the settings and ddns was configured, all is good. Use the iPhone app all the time with it. Zoom is awesome. Sturdy feel to the camera. Suggestion; make a dedicated iPad app for the Eco series. Enlarging the iPhone app on an iPad is lame.
i would rate this product higher but there is a major flaw on the dôme. when you tilt fully to the top there is a line on the dome that cuts the field of view and blurs the image if you try to zoom in or read a licence plate... I dont understand why they would put a line across the top like that. I own several ptz cameras and have never seen this before.

I highly recommend this product because it exceeded the expectations that I waited in the surveillance. Provides excellent image quality during the day and even at times in low light, plus the facility that provides operational management.

GREAT for the Money
After spending a year reviewing, comparing and nit picking the various PTZ cameras on the market to upgrade my current system to, I landed on the Lorex 9 camera system which included the camera of this review. I have had it installed now for a week and so far, it has exceeded my expectations. Even in total darkness with very little or no ambient light or starlight,
this camera captures an image that is viewable. Yes it will be dark and no it wont look like an image taken during normal daylight, but without IR lighting, it surprised me. I ran the camera to a separate dwelling excessing 200 lft. So power had to be supplied within the 95 ft. range of the supplied cables. (Lorex mentions this in their manual) I ran the RG59 to my residence and used the power leads of the coax as the RS485 leads that are needed to operate the PTZ functions. The camera operates flawlessly. You can set up the cruise by adding the waypoints and saving them. But be advised, you cannot use motion recording during cruise mode. The sensors are in the DVR not in the camera, therefor any motion, even the camera motion during cruise, will be considered motion sufficient to activate recording. So you end up recording just motion from the camera or false positives. As for quality, the zoom feature works great. A vehicle at 100 yards for example, I can zoom in and read the license plate number clearly. The only thing I don't like about this camera is the dome itself. Apparently the manufacturing process includes a 2 piece lens that is combined and the seam is polished. Insufficiently at best. Anything the camera sees is somewhat blurry and the autofocus tries to compensate continuously. (Lorex mentions this in their manual too) Conclusion: This Pan tilt zoom camera performs very well with excellent image quality. It is controllable by your smart phone (iphone/android) with a little setup savy, and FOR THE MONEY, performs as well as PTZ cams costing considerably more. You can spend 6000.00 on todays market for auto tracking and 36x zoom just for the camera alone. I bought my complete system for 1200.00 including the PTZ. You will be pleased with this camera, but since all installations are different, be sure to read the specific manual for the equipment your considering. The videos sell the product only and to prevent disappointment and frustrations, be sure to read the manuals.

I purchased this PTZ camera for my Edge LH300 series DVR and the first camera that arrived had issues and I had support helping so they sent another one. The second camera I got to work but the thing they don?t tell you is that even though it will work on the Edge DVRs it functionality is limited. The whole point was I wanted the camera to continually be in touring mode unless I needed to take manual control. With the Echo DVR?s that will work, but you don?t have the option for touring with the Edge series DVR?s. The other thing they don?t tell you is that you cannot use your iPhone app while away from home to access the PTZ camera. I ended up returning the camera for a refund because it just would not do everything they said it would with the Edge DVR. The picture quality was fine and like others have said it takes a bit to get use to the controls running it manually.

It seem to be nicely built. Unfortunately, I can't get it to move and customer service has been unable to help. Getting through to customer service takes approximately 30-45 minutes wait! I will provide more insight if it actually get it to work.
