Works as advertised


Now lets see how long they last

It was easy to set up and configure ; Quality of the picture is what is expected of the price ; Overall, I am pleased with my purchase

The cameras are not 360º - only up/down not left/right ; Can only view remotely via Internet Explorer.. (arghh!)

Consumer review by:

Do not buy


I purchased 4 of these systems and they began fine but one by one the cameras started getting fogged up or began to hold water during a rainy day and would cut off. The exchange process is terrible, I have to return at my own expense and it takes over...

Consumer review by:

Good value, easy install


Easy to understand installation. Plenty of cable for most applications. The camera has to be fairly straight on, as it doesn't have a very wide range for a larger room.

Poor Night Cameras


D V R does what its supposed to. Easy set-up. Cameras downfall. Good daytime but bad night view when you need it most. Even within the 20 feet range, little or no useful details of a persons face, just a figure unless they put their face right in front...

night cameras do not work well at night, grat cameras for daytime use
