Best Bang for your Buck!
This review is for the 8 channel (4 bullet cams) 720 eco HD system. This system is way better than I expected. It’s an excellent value and in my opinion better than the systems at the big box stores for a fraction of the price . Set up was pretty straight forward and not complicated, and playback on the mobile app and the DVR Software are great. I love the motion detection alerts, although they take a little bit of tweaking the sensitivity so you’re not getting notifications on your phone every time a bug flies by the camera or a leaf falls from a tree. I would most definitely recommend this system for anyone looking for a great value in a solid home surveillance system.
Great system, awesome picture quality and well worth it.
Very happy with the total system,great picture quality,installation of the system is very simple electronically, physically getting the cables from cameras to dvr are dependent on location,location,location and that doesn’t take anything away from the system. I’ve installed a few systems in other places but Murphy’s law comes into effect on your on home.
Good Value For The Cost
I would have given this camera system five stars had there been more instructions on using it. The installation was straight forward. I really was happy that this was a eight channel four camera system, instead of the standard four channel/camera system. Image quality is good and IR range is also good but not great. You may want to consider a IR floodlight, depending on the size of the area needing covered. Though I haven’t had a long experience with the system, it seems to be more than adequate for the intended purpose.
Very good value. Excellent system.
For the price, it is an amazing system. Great value. Installation is straight forward and easy. Simply run the combination power/video cable from dvr to camera location, plug it in and off it goes.
This system is a great little set up
This system is a great little set up. It was easy to install and get up and running. The user manual could use some work, explaining in in greater detail what each setting actually does. The only thing I regret about this purchase is not purchasing the 8 camera (4 bullet/4dome) version!
A great product, quality made.
The cameras worked very well. I was able to see the cameras when I was on a 2 week vacation
Very happy with this device
This product does exactly what I need it to do. It records day and night activities outside my house in the most straight-forward and easy to manage way. The feed is accessible via HDMI cable through my TV or remotely via my smartphone. If not automatic, the setup was intuitively easy. I hardwired the DVR into my home network via Ethernet cable, and all my cameras are connected via CCTV cable, so I cannot speak for wireless operation of the device. Playback is great and very intuitive. Physically running the CCTV cables from the cameras to the DVR was work-intensive, but that was my choice.
… cameras so far running 24/7 with no problems can easily identify any activity in yard and around
Have 4 cameras so far running 24/7 with no problems can easily identify any activity in yard and around home
Pretty easy installation and setup.
Got this security system installed as easily as could be expected considering that I had to dig in the attic insulation to get the cameras where I wanted them. But this was expected. Got the system working pretty quickly so I can view the cameras from my smart phone. Still have to get all the possible options working, and learn how the recordings work. I was able to monitor the house while on vacation, which was very reassuring. Especially when storms were rolling through one night. We watched the lightning from 700 miles away. The camera picture quality is very good, both daytime and at night. Made one call to the Amcrest tech support for an installation question and they were very helpful.
1 Year Update: Relatively easy to set up – Tech support – hard to understand 🙁
UPDATE 1 year later: Still works great! I’ve added 2 additional cameras and they connected up like plug n play. Regularly view cameras while on the road. I am a real person (not a fake reviewer). Only thing I haven’t completely figured out is motion alerts. When I turn that feature on, I get a ton of emails. Prolly something I’m not setting correctly.
