Best of what I’ve found, but needs some software attention
I researched surveillance cameras and systems for quite a while. My overall criteria were that I wanted 4K cameras and Power over Ethernet, both for the increased picture quality and to hopefully future-proof the system when I took the time to run all the cabling. Ideally, I was looking for something made in the U.S. too. Unfortunately this set of criteria really narrowed the field.
Easy install, easy setup and flexible, adaptable
It is much easier to setup and configure than the last version of the Q-See HD IP camera, more adapters added at the back of the camera itself, believe it is for CCTV but I only used CAT5e cables (comes with 100 feet); more plug-n-play functions added in the box. However, when I added the older version of camera into this system, I had trouble to joined old ones, but that won’t affect my rating for this system for a 5 star. It doesn’t take me more than 3 minutes to add the entire system to 2 iPhones after mounted on and connected cameras. I have slow network – 12 mbps down and 1 mbps up, I thought it will impact majorly on the network bandwidth, however, it was surprisingly working well.
High quality, easy to install, motion detection a bit too sensitive
I use this for home – primarily outside in temperatures ranging from -5F to 100+F. The picture quality/night vision is good/smooth. This was very easy to set up and I have not had to contact their customer service. The instructions were sufficient for me – they are better written and have better content than instructions from a GW system (a non-IP system) I ended up trashing. The app is pretty good – I have to exit out of it and re-open it to get the live stream on, but that’s been my experience with other apps. The live stream on this app is pretty reliable with rare instances of “network connection failure” – and if you do get one of these errors, it usually goes away if i stop/re-open the app – but it’s not too problematic overall.
Very happy with this system
Very happy with this system. Only cons I have is the motion detectors on the cameras are super sensitive. Insects will trigger the motion detectors so if you use the email alerts, you will get a ton of emails if you live in an area with many insects. I had to limit what i have set on the motion detector. Its great to know whats going on around the house when you aren’t there. Packaging was great. Picture is amazing.
Compatible but work good
Great NVR. I have about 30 installed with very little headache!
Only works with Q See ip camera but works well.
Picture quality is good. Setup is easy
Picture quality is good. Setup is easy. No problem getting everything set up and working.
