      Good until firmware updates

      Posted
      jesuslover

      I like this camera for its speaker/intercom feature, motion detection and alert detection. However, every time something is not working like the monitor, there is a firmware update that I don’t know about until I call customer service. After one year of use, I got a warranty replacement since the camera stopped working. Once I got the replacement I had to update the firmware twice. The firmware can only be downloaded to a laptop/computer but not compatible with Apple Mac. So Suzanne the rep mails me the SD card with the 2 firmware updates twice. Due to the company not sending us any updates by email, I had to find out the firmware updates when I notice the monitor was not working after a few weeks. This could save me more time and frustration if they sent us emails. I lost about 3-4 weeks of use on this security camera since I had to wait for a replacement and wait for a first and second SD card. During my wait I had to buy another camera to be a back up. The only issue is the firmware upgrades that causes inconveniences and delays until I get a SD. The only reason why I stick to this camera is because Suzanne is very nice and helps me out. They ship the stuff from Canada so it takes 7 days.

      Great camera and monitor set!

      Posted

      I purchased this set on black Friday for my elderly father who lives alone and is in a power chair. He wanted something that would allow him to see when someone pulls into his driveway and also when someone approaches his doors. This set was perfect because he can relax and still easily monitor activity around his property which gives him comfort. While he loves the monitor, he said that he does wish we could purchase another monitor for him so that he could have one in his living area and also one next to his bed. Since the monitor has to be plugged in, it is not convenient to move when he goes to bed every night. There is an option to add 2 additional cameras but not an option to add another monitor, that I know of. My husband is a "techie" and was impressed with the clarity & quality of the camera's in the daytime and also the night vision, so that is saying something! The fact that there is also sound is just another added bonus. The system also came with four 3" X 2" stickers which read "WARNING-SECURITY SYSTEM- DEFENDER" which can be placed on doors and windows. All said, this system is quite the bang for your buck and we would certainly recommend it.

      Horrible Night Motion Sensing

      Posted

      For daytime or Nighttime viewing or daytime motion sensing the system is okay, not great but okay. But for security when you need it at night for motion sensing to pickup any 2 legged or 4 legged persons or animals the Defender Phoenix is totally useless, sent mine back to Defender and the replacement is just as bad. Customer service from Defender is also totally useless and their final comment is well return it to where you bought it. If you want and need security in the dark look elsewhere instead of Defender products. Their products and customer support is inferior.

      Very easy to set up and has a clear picture. The camera is motion activated with both audio and video. You can set an alert to go off also but it isn't loud enough to wake you up. The audio and alert can be set for how loud you want or can be turned off. The video can be set for how long to record after motion is detected with the shortest time being 15 seconds. Stores data on sd card. Only downfall is it cannot connect remotely . Lacks instructions on how to use but i found some help on line.

      I purchased this system to monitor a weekend cabin when we are not there. So far (two months of use) it is working well. Now we know when bears, deer and hummingbirds are up to no good on our property! The system does give us a certain peace of mind. My only concern is that the monitor device and controls, particularly the joystick, seems rather fragile. I am certian that it will be the first thing to break. But it is one of the least expensive camera systems out there.

      VERY DARK THE PICTURES IN NIGHT

      Posted
      DECEPTION

      so much that I read your comments before buying this equipment and it is a disappointment, the cameras in the night record very dark, the photos are dark and you increase the brightness until the 6 and continuous, I had bought one on ebay for $ 170 with 4 cameras with tablet and it was clearer by night. All of these comments are people or families working on best buy or something. Do not be fooled, it sucks.

      This camera is perfect. You attach two or three parts, plug in an outlet, and start monitoring your surroundings. I love the fact that the cameras don't require batteries and records when motion is detected. The camera is very user-friendly. I have ordered two systems for my sisters, Neshell and Joyce. They are very pleased with their cameras, also.
