The product is working great since October. Easy to setup and use. The HD picture is much nicer that the 960H cameras I have.

Just installed the system seem to work great. I had problems with the IP set up i called Lorex support team they were very professional took care of my problem. I would recommend buying the Lorex lhv1000 series, good quality pictures.

System was very easy to setup and has very good picture quality. Only been up and running for a few days now, but from everything I can see it works well. Even running the cables over some lights that could not be avoided, there is very minimal interference. I read other reviews about Lorex and have yet to experience any of the negative comments people have made. If you have the know how, you can get the answers you need to questions very easily.

Great picture, easy setup. I had a bad cable but the techs at Lorex were actually fun to talk to while troubleshooting my problem. Fairly easy set up and install. One complaint I had was with customer service I tried to call in twice and each time left my number for a return call which I never received. I had some questions before I installed the system. Somebody should have called back. Quick response from tech assist and as I mentioned they were easy to talk to and patient. I would recommend this system as the 8 cameras cover everything outside of my house. No problems hooking up with my I pad and I phone. Did not see problems that others have found.

Excellent picture quality. Versatile cameras. Complete package makes things simple to install and relatively simple to use. I would have liked a paper manual rather than an online manual, but I guess that is the way of the future.

I had absolutely no knowledge or previous experience with a surveillance system, but I am very happy that I picked this model with these cameras. The system linked easily to my Android smartphone.

One thing that may be worth mentioning, I had a very difficult time figuring out what button I had accidentally pushed to switch a camera to black and white. I played with all the buttons on the the screen as well as on my phone. Turns out, I hadn't done anything to cause this situation. FYI, if a camera senses low light, it will switch to infrared which is black and white. They can be slow to switch back to color even after the lights are on again.

My only complaint would be that the company was very difficult to reach. Called in several times, but was never able to speak with anyone for guidance making a decision on what to purchase. Most likely due to the time of year I was calling. In their defense it was during a black Friday sale, so I'm sure they were extra busy.

Hoping for years of great service from this excellent product.

Bought this at Costco. Spent about 10 hours installing it and the video quality was terrible and the cameras would cut out constantly. Any time I touched the cables on the back of the DVR the video signal would cut out or degrade or get better. I figured the cables were just poor quality so I called customer support to get new cables. The rep said it was probably a bad DVR so they would send me a new DVR and 1 new cable to try to isolate the problem. A few weeks later the DVR arrived, but no new cable. The new DVR had the same problem so another call to customer service. That tech refused to believe the cables were the problem so he told me he would send a new power supply or I could return the unit. I wasn't about to spend hours uninstalling a product that took me 10 hours to put in to return it so I bought new cables on my own at Amazon for $100. The system works fine now.
The software interface is not intuitive at all and very difficult to use. The remote viewing app is very spotty and doesn't work most of the time.
Lorex customer support doesn't resond to tickets submitted via their website and telephone support wait times are in the hours. The only way I could contact them was to go through costco concierge service.
Overall it was a frustrating product. Now that I have it working after spending the extra $100 because lorex wouldn't stand behind the quality of their products the picture is decent. You can see faces clearly at a range of about 10', but you can't read a license plate at about 20'.
It's an okay product with terrible customer service so I wouldn't recommend it. 2 stars.

I saw Lorex surveillance equipment at Sams Club so that is how I found out about them. I got on line for more information. I ended up getting this system for what I need. Lorex people are very helpful for everything I have ask for or needed. The system is working great so far. I am doing the install myself Thanks to the people at Lorex. I am in the process running wires and setting up the cameras outside. So far so good! I can't wait until I can see what is happening while I sleep and when I am away.

Bought this at Costco. I have done a fair amount of research on these systems over the last year of so. You wont find a better system at this price point and you wont find it cheaper than Costco. Sure you can get better quality with 1080P IP cameras or even 720P IP cameras but you are going to pay a lot more.

Setup was fairly easy. Of course if you have never setup a DVR expect some of the terminology to not be familiar. The manual is well written but there are some things not explained fully. A quick search on the internet will find you most answers not in the manual.
Picture quality is great when you consider these to be analog cameras. You wont do better unless you go IP based.

One thing that will be confusing is there are differences in using the system directly connected to the dvr vs using it through the web interface vs using it with a client application. For example, you can set a scheduled reboot in the web interface but from the DVR itself. It would be nice to see consistency between the interfaces.

The Flir Cloud setup by scanning the sticker on the DVR did not work for me. Not sure what the deal was there but I manually opened the ports on my router and configured port forwarding. Access with the Android and Iphone apps was flawless by doing the manual configuration. If you don't understand port forwarding there is lots of information on the internet but some people may still be confused. In those cases I would say call a friend that knows how to set it up and have them do it for you. You will find quite a few of the negative reviews have to do with remote viewing and appear to be written by people who don't have the technical skills to set it up. The Flir Cloud scanning is a great idea if it worked.

Anyway, the bottom line with this system is that you get a lot for your money. I rate it 5 stars because it exceeds my expectations for the amount of money I spent. Sure you can do better if you want to spend more money and Lorex has systems themselves that will give you much more.

I would recommend making some changes to the FPS on recording to allow for more time to be recorded on the hard drive. I found the default settings of 30fps using CBR allowed for about 60-70 hours. By changing to 30fps VBR quality 4 you will get about 75-80 hours. Now consider that if you dont need to catch magicians doing slight of hand you can probably reduce your fps to 15 fps and double your storage time or to 10fps to triple your storage time. I have decided on 10fps VBR at quality 4. I believe this should allow me to record constantly on all 8 cameras for about 10 days. The 10 fps setting is very barely noticeably different from 30fps and things like leaves falling from trees or cars driving by still look fluid and just as sharp.

Now for some things I would like to see for this system.
- Option to get a camera with narrower field of view or a vari-focal camera.
- The ability to add and monitor 1 or 2 IP Cams. The PC client looks to allow adding a camera but would be nice to be able to add a camera to the dvr itself and record it. I believe technically it should be possible.
- The ability to search and view only motion on the phone apps
- The ability to zoom in on the video on the phone apps

One bug I found was when using the PC client to export about 10 minutes of a recording to AVI format it showed success but when I viewed the video it only contained the first 1-2 minutes of what I wanted exported. I tried a second time with a different section of video with the same result. I have not looked further into this but it does appear to be an issue with the PC client. I have not tried exporting to usb on the DVR itself or to the native format yet so possibly those will work fine.

We purchased this system (w/o monitor) at Costco and all of the hardware is top notch. The iOS and Android flir cloud apps are not great but fast and usable. HOWEVER, if you are running a mobile device w/o a rear camera then you are out of luck! AND if you want to use the DVR's DDNS interface feature, then you MUST run safari or IE. So Linux, Firefox and Chrome users are forced into using the aforementioned browsers. With all of that being said, once your in (DDNS) the interface is very good.
So, Hardware = 5/5, Apps = 3/5, DDNS and local interfaces (once connected) = 5/5, supported browsers and devices =2/5.

We have had this product for two weeks now, and we are very happy with it. The images are clear, night recording is fine as long as there is some light, play back is easy. The play-back bar indicates where there was motion, so you can just go to that part of the video, and you can fast forward, pause and zoom a section of video for individual cameras.
