  • Q: it says we need a dvr.. is that important and if it is, how much os that extras is the dvr expensive  (4 Answers)

    By mabel 

    • Best answerGet the 1080 cameras- huge difference. The pkg I got is- 1 TB DVR / 4 cameras (8 slots) / internet viewable system is about $300 for all that, and expands to 8 cameras. I own it. Plug and play. I also called the place I bought from and got help with the IP internet stuff. Easy peasy. Now I watch all day on my celly, my desktops, and I can rewind and view 6 days of recorded time from 4 cameras. Our bad neighbors are knuckleheads and spend a lot of time in jails so... Awesome camera system to the rescue. I also see where cats are cruising my property and I can choose to feed them or block their entrance. Gets some cat5 cable and place your DVR anywhere. They are not on your LAN, it's wired. Photo shows cameras on porch.

  • Q: I really need to know Are these cameras water proof when they are out side.  (2 Answers)

    By Anonymous 

    • Best answerGood Afternoon. No, the cameras included with your system are not water proof (meaning they cannot be submerged under water). However, all Night Owl cameras are weather proof (meaning they can withstand dirt debris and jets of water). If you will be placing your cameras outside, Night Owl strongly recommends placing them under an eave or awning to maximize their life span. If you leave them too exposed to the elements, they will only last a short time. Thanks for choosing Night Owl.
