  • A. You would need a a cable to connect to any TV, or set it up in the living room, or you can add a computer monitor (no computer needed). The DVR is small but holds months of motion detection.

  • A. Internet is not required for recording or monitoring with this system. It is only necessary to view the cameras remotely over the Internet or a compatible cell phone. This system comes with a hard drive installed. The recordings are stored on the hard drive. It does not come with a monitor which is necessary to view the cameras and the recordings. So you will have to provide either a TV or computer monitor to use this system.

This system was a breeze to set up and install with clear and consice instructions. The image quality in daylight is awesome and the night vision is very good. The software makes it very easy to set up and the options for camera setup and recording are perfect for the homeowner.

So far, so good. I've had it for 2 weeks now. I haven't used the on-line or motion detection features but the hard copy manual that comes with this seems straight forward. I have it running four cameras. It replaced a Clover system which cost more and had problems from the start. The night vision is only good for a few feet in total darkness but these are all that way. They work fine at night on a lighted area. This powers a monitor all day with a four split screen. It works on a TV and also a computer monitor. The best way to operate it is with a mouse (included) and on screen menus. These are intuitive. You can copy recordings to a thumb drive should the need arise.

Great for price. Setup instructions need work. Can't setup wifi and smart phone unless you call tech support. Called them 3 times and finally have the system operating the way I want. Overall it's great for the price. Lets see how long it last.

My husband was asaulted by my front neighbor on black Friday since that day we were taking turns sleep at night because him and his brother threaten to destroy our home with handgranaides. We decided to buy this product to be able to sleep a little better at night,, "boy!," did it helped us big time . We were able to record the different vehicles and men who were being sent by the neighbors to intimidate us so we would not prss charges. We find our selves broke but at ease in our home now. I strongly recomend this product it could save ur life..... Thank you, Elvia

The product performs as stated. Be prepared to go to Radio Shack for needed cables to meet your needs. Cables are provided with good measure with the cameras but from DVR to Video they are lacking. A call to tech service for a final check on your installation will be needed and recommended. Tech service is average and usually out of the country. A modem connection is needed in the long run. I used VGA cable (like monitor connections) and it worked well. My monitor is for customers to see that the place is being recorded, it works well. All and all, once you give yourself time to set everything up and understand how things work, which takes time, you will find it a good purchase for a two cameras, capable to handle 4 cameras, and work well. So far so good for me.
