Or do you have to delete the recordings?

  • A. It will continue to record after using 500GB and will only erase what you started recording from the beginning as long as you didn't go into the settings to make it stop after the dvr is full

  • A. The DVR overwrites itself once it reaches it's hard drive limit. It will write over itself as it records the video, you have the ability to extract the video that you want to keep to a thumb drive before it is overwritten. At a high resolution the DVR will record approx. 123hrs before it will begin overwriting itself. The DVR does not format all data at once, it overwrites as needed.

  • A. Hello, It depends how you choose to set the system up. You can either have it overwrite the oldest footage or stop when the hard drive is at capacity. Please note that if you can always backup important footage to a USB or external hard drive if needed.

  • A. Hello, The system is programmed to continue recording on top of the oldest records once it runs out of memory. However, if you back your files via USB port you won't need to lose any records. Thank you.

Great price for this basic system. I had problems with ordering on Walmart.com - it didn't like a credit card and gift card together. Once I finally switched to PayPal payment, the ordering went fine, shipping was fast, great packaging to protect the product. This system was fairly easy to set up direct, mobile and online monitoring. The online program allows you to playback the recorded footage from a computer connected to the same router - have not tried remote online. When I did have a few set up questions, the customer service was the best I have dealt with in any tech company (Dell needs to learn from Night Owl). They were patient, always available (sometimes with a 5-10 minute wait), and very knowledeable. The cameras worked amazingly well in the dark, great infrared. They do not have zoom, movement or audio - those would be the next higher price. Overall, I am happy with the system as a deterrent and extra set of eyes watching my little home.

Being a security camera installer, this product has a great price for the value of the cameras and product, however it is very difficult to configure remote viewing when attached to a computer's router. The instructions do not explain that in order for you to view the DVR remotely, you must configure multiple router ports for port forwarding. This is critical in remote viewing and should be included in the installation and configuration instructions for those people who do not know/understand port forwarding in routers. On a better note, the quality of the camera's picture is competitive with other major brands except that the viewing angle is extremely limited to approx. 45 degrees - nearly exact line of sight.

Great Customer Service, When you have trouble with set up or operation you can call their number and they will take control over the internet and set up all the variables etc, and you can follow along, very pleasent and easy to talk to. The unit displays a good picture, alittle off on color and not a real wide view angle, but they are adjustable, and have good night vision, the only downfall is it is a little complicated to figure out the recording aspects and playback, again just consult the phone help. Over all a very good investment for the money.

I just receive this camera on Dec.12,2013 and were very excited when it arrived, It took me a while to set it up because I did not know that you need to make sure 2 plugs are plug into an outlet at one time in order for the cameras to work, this were not explain in the flyer or on line. Once I got it set up (It shows a clear picture inside the house) I have not tried it outdoors yet. The only thing that's bothering me is that there is NO sound, so before I set it up outside I might have to exchange it for one that has sound included, other wise I would have given it a 5 star rating if it did have sound/Mic.
