    Good quality cameras

    Replaced my sance cameras with this night owl made in the US and the quality is amazing! I was able to used the same wiring of my old cameras which was good due to I have wiring throughout the attic. Really recommend this caneras

    No bells or whistles but does the job.

    The quality of the video and night vision is good. Cameras are meant to be hung upside down, they dont have 360 rotation. These don't come with facial recognition. It's constantly notifying me that a human was dectected - sometimes I can't see anything changing in the videos and sometimes its a cat or spider. Don't have the ability to speak through the camera, only with presets. Everything on the back of the DVR is so close together its difficult to get your hands in there to screw and plug in.

    Waste of $400

    I was refraining from writing a review until more time passed before I found out the limitation of this system. I purchased this setup to replace an older Amcrest system in which one of the cameras failed, deciding to go with an “upgrade” with something newer. The cameras (resolution and night vision) are actually really good, and that’s the only reason I didn’t rate this system 1 star. Where this system severely disappointed was the way in which footage is recorded and stored. First off, there is no way to disable “event based” recording, there is only an option to select “continuous” on top of that. So when one has to go back and look for footage during a particular time window, the duration bar is filled with red lines signifying event based recordings, it is visual overload and I wish there was a way to have only continuous based recording (some of us live in major cities instead of the sticks and therefore there is always movement happening in all camera angles). The biggest design flaw is what happens when the storage space runs out on the HDD, which is basically nothing. The system runs out of space and doesn’t tell you, and there is no option to select for the system to loop back around and start re-writing the oldest footage once it runs out of space. My old Amcrest system had that capability. I found out when I needed to go back and review footage from a few days ago and realized it had nothing saved from the last few days because it ran out of space! I had to manually reformat the HDD! Finally, the last annoyance is having to “log in” with a password when you want to playback or mess with settings, this is very cumbersome when needing to quickly review footage for something that happened moments ago. I understand the purpose is designed with security in mind in case someone gets physical access to the DVR, but there should be an option to disable login requirements. All in all, this system is borderline useless for setting up in an urban/high traffic area, and overall for the lack of ability to automatically re-write over old footage once HDD space runs out. The cherry on top is the system is noticeably louder when information is being written onto the HDD when compared to my old Amcrest system, another slight nuisance at night time since I have the system and monitor setup in my bedroom.
