Great system for the price!

Great price for this basic system. I had problems with ordering on - 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.

Good - with some issues

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.

Good Product

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.


Great camera for home use. Clear vision even at night. Easy to install.

without sound

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.

good cameras for price

night owl security cameras is a great beginners set up. only problem I found is they are not wifi they need to be hard wired to internet wihich makes it harder to fit to your home. thought this system was wifi.

Great security starter pack

These cameras were so easy to install and start up wizard program was very helpful! And I like the fact you can add more cameras to the DVR if you need too.

Great DVR

Very easy to hook up. It is best that you download the manual and follow the easy to understand instructions. The cameras are not all that high quality but they serve the purpose and later on down the road you can purchase better cameras as needed especially if you need audio. Remember that the dvr output will be computer monitor/hdmi only or you can switch to rca output only. To switch to either one of the outputs, you will have use your remote and press sel twice and then zero once. This is especially good if you want to run multiple tvs with rca input only

Exceeds my expectations!

This was a better value than what I thought it would be. Each camera comes with a 60' cable that goes to the DVR. Installation without the mobile hookup was general knowledge. Pretty easy, simple. Mobile connection: I know a little, but not enough. But, there support team is 24/7, be patient for the hold time, it is worth it. Once I got to talk to someone, than did everything for me remotely. Made the settings on my router without needing to know any of my log on information. Do not leave a message when you call, they won't call back, I waited 3 days and never got a call. No biggie, I wasn't in that big of a rush for mobile. But once they did it, I now can see all 4 cameras from my mobile device when I am not at home, and if I have 8 cameras I could see all 8. Picture quality: Way better than what I thought it would be. Even the night vision. I would say yes it is right around 30' of night vision, which is all you need for a window or door entrance. Motion Sensor: You can also set up motion detection sensitivity and even block out an object that triggers the recording, IE: I have one camera couldn't be helped that has an electrical line in the way, doesn't interfere with the visual aspect, but it kept triggering the recording. I figured it out my self on how to block that part of the motion trigger. It was pretty simple to do with just a little of common DIY knowledge. Overall: Great product for a great price with awesome customer service. Would recommend for home or business.

Excellent valuel for home security.

Was easy to install and very pleased with quality of camera and DVR. Had to purchase additional cable to finish the job but additional cable was reasonable to purchase.
