Q-See’s HD system offers the easiest, most economical introduction to high definition for those looking to upgrade or buying for the first time. Unlike traditional analog systems, Q-See’s HD systems record 1080p resolution images (1920×1080). This larger pixel count translates to a high definition image with added detail and recognition. For even more clarity, this DVR records 720p video at a verified 30 frames per second for completely smooth playback with continuous motion that ensures every detail is captured. More importantly, you’ll always stay connected with a Q-See HD system. Advanced state-of-the-art remote monitoring features provide you access from anywhere in the world with just a smartphone or tablet. To make sure you get the most out of your surveillance solution, this bundle comes with 8 high definition cameras. Offering you an effective pixel size of 1920×1080, these cameras act as your second set of eyes. High quality IR cut filters means camera images will be bright black and white at night and accurately colored during the day. Infrared LEDs provide these cameras with night vision capabilities for continued protection well into the night. Every camera is weatherproof so you can protect what matters the most, indoors or outdoors. Each camera also comes with the necessary cable to get started right away. The sturdy camera mounting brackets not only allow for precise positioning but also protect the cables by safely routing them behind the bracket where they can be securely ran through a wall or ceiling

Customer Reviews

excellent system, very easy network and mobile device setup

First, I am commenting on a system I bought from Costco. Its full name is Q-See 8-Channel HD Analog DVR with 2TB HDD ( 8-Channel DVR, QC958 and 8 HD Bullet Cameras, QCA7209B. For me, this system I bought worked pretty well, hence my recommendation. Whether it applies to your system, or the system on display here, is something I am not sure. Below is my review, as published on Costco.

This equipment is down since May 19 2017 I did talk to a Mr, Karthik from Q_SEE with this case number 866-9579 and that I, purchased this item through Amazon, not Costco’s, Any help that you can give me in this matter would be greatly appreciated.

A Lot of Potential, Nice Hardware, But Not Quite Ready for Prime Time

This product has a lot of potential, but unfortunately it is just not quite there yet. The cameras and video quality are excellent, but for a product that costs over $700, the support and seamless operation that should be there isn’t.

What’s in the box.

My plan in writing this review is to not duplicate too much of what other reviewers have had to say about this security camera system. I’ll start with the basics; what is inside the box. There are five neatly packed and fully labled boxes (with very clear format stickers of “what’s inside” EACH box with all the details (incl. specifications) on the sticker!) and an informational folder packet inside. The informational folder has in it; a welcome letter, a “stop sign” large card stock warranty card (what’s covered, what’s not), website registration and how to access software improvements/upgrades and tech support, four (different language) warning stickers to identify your residence or business as camera surveillance monitored, and a full color quad fold card stock “quick start guide” that has clearly written and color pictured set up and connection instructions (7 pages total). All items in boxes are very carefully packed and well organized. Each camera is individually wrapped in a foam sleeve and each camera has it’s own included zip lock baggy of screws, plastic screw threaders/expanders for secure installation, an installation template sticker for both drilling holes and proper screw placements and Allen wrench. The cameras are encased in metal, have a metal attachment base and even the stem and ball angle adjustment parts are made of metal. Each camera has an adjustable slider shield (made of plastic) for installations which may be in areas of glare or weather exposure and need the camera lens shaded/protected. In addition to the 8 HD 1080P 2 megapixel cameras you receive, you also get eight 60ft cables, two 12V/2A 100-240 power adapters and two 4-way power splitters. Lastly, an Analog HD DVD recorder (with preinstalled hard drive), power supply, HDMI video cable, Network Ethernet cable and a USB mouse is all included. What you will still need is; a surge protector (UL 1449 rated, clamping voltage of 330 of lower, Joule rating of at least 400, response time of 10 nanoseconds or less), an HDMI TV or HDMI monitor (or a VGA monitor-then you will also need a VGA cable). You’ll need to decide for yourself if you can do the installation work or hire a professional. I would think the trickiest parts will be running all the wiring and hard wiring the DVR hard drive. Personally, I’d go with a professional installer. I very much like the modern technology of this system with it’s mobile surveillance App and ability to set cameras for motion sensor mode. As others have remarked, HD camera feedback clarity is very good-the whole reason anyone wants surveillance to begin with! This is our first foray into home surviellance technology. I would have liked to have more than one 5″ sticker to identify my property as surveillance monitored.
thank you for sharing...
