I first got the 4 camera setup, but wanted more cameras and storage. So I returned the system and bought the 8 camera, 1 trig storage system. Easy to install, works great. Had a little trouble with the DDNS remote setup, But they set it up hooking on to my computer. Technician was very knowledgeable and nice. I highly recommend this company. I can view and control this system from anywhere I am.

Love the cameras. I am now able to see many things I did not know where happening.
This is a very good setup for the price. and the software is very well thought out. I had some issue getting mine set up because of a firewall I had but the customer support was great and got it all working for me. I love that I can check on my building from anywhere.
Good product. Clear picture during day but at night unless there is some lighting you cannot see anything. Choose a 4 rating because the night vision is the only downfall and it can be improved with better yard light.
Best name in CCTV! Lorex systems are the only ones for me. They will provide this company the security we need.
I am in the process of installing these. So far they have been awesome! Had to have support help me with connecting to my mobile devices. I use a Mac, iphone and iPad. Once I got someone on the phone they helped me pretty quickly. Everything is working excellent now.
Does the job for a reasonable price
Product relatively easy to set up with good documentation. Good tech support and good trouble shooting information on the product web site.

Pros: Price - remote viewing, install and quality.
I shopped around for a couple of months doing my research on different manufacturers (makes and models). I purchased a couple competitors systems in the same price range and returned them within two weeks and decided to try LOREX. I can tell you that I am very happy that I decided to try LOREX.
The setup was very easy. I spent more time trying to figure out where I was going to mount my cameras. The DVR software is very user friendly. After mounting my cameras I was up and running with my DVR configured in less than an hour (motion, display, alarm, network, etc.).
You will have to call Technical Support to have your router configured because depending on your cable company you may have to use an alternative port from port 80 because most cable companies block port 80.
Anyway, I was on hold for about 15 minutes, but once connected I spoke with Patrick. He was great! He configured my router, my app on my smart phone and my laptop in less than 10 min.
The cameras are clear and the colors are very good. With this system you're NOT going to read license plates. If you want a system that can do that - I suggest that you purchase a higher end LOREX DVR system with HD cameras like I plan to do in the near future.
In closing, if you want a system where you can monitor your home or business 24/7, I highly recommend this unit. You can't go wrong for the price and the quality and not to mention the support.

What's great about it: Price (especially when on sale), remote viewing on mobile devices for no monthly cost What's not so great: Picture quality, especially at night, is just adequate The DVR unit is streamlined with no unnecessary buttons (not even a power switch! -- you just plug in the DC supply), which makes sense since the best place to put it is somewhere hidden, and since all the controls are accessible via the local network or internet. Build quality is good, and the unit is silent. The DVR's built-in software is painful to use (you cannot use a keyboard -- only a provided mouse or remote control) and the interface is very primitive, but it isn't much of an issue, since after initial configuration, you are much more likely to use the networked client software, which is much better. The cameras are sturdy and have clever, simple -- yet quite adjustable mounting brackets. Note that they do not include audio, nor any zoom or motorized movement -- they are fixed focus; but the coverage seems pretty ideal for most locations. The software is also extremely flexible regarding scheduling recording time -- separately for each camera. The mobile application (have tried both iPhone and Android) are simple yet reliable and quick, and also do not consume much data use (they stream at a lower bit rate -- plenty enough to see the images, but not too high as to eat quickly through your data plan). You can configure them to display up to 16 different cameras (for multi- DVR installations). The video quality, even at its highest (D1) resolution and "best" quality is similar to VCR quality (in day) and not even that good at night. However, even in pitch blackness, you can certainly still identify what is being filmed, but it is unlikely to see facial characteristics other than when the subject(s) are extremely close-up. Like most night-time cameras, these emit a soft red glow by the lens, so they are not covert. The motion tracking capability is quite good. You can configure each camera to record continuously, or continuously with motion-tracking events highlighted, or just to record when motion is detected (allowing potentially weeks or months of recording without overwriting the 500GB HDD). The software also allows good configuration for which areas of each camera should track motion, so you can block off spots that you expect continuous activity, for example. The software has some annoyances, such as messages with very poor English, such as "No find CH1,CH2!" and "Refresh successfully!" and no ability to save your local preferences, such as camera pane configuration, or which channels are selected for playback, but these are minor. The main points are that the unit records and plays back reliably, that the motion detection works well, but the video quality is not stellar, but passable for basic monitoring.
