    Product was what I expected, easy to work with, good clear pictures. However, I am still waiting for my extended warranty.

    Video recording and display screen are fine, except the capture angle / view is very narrow. Comparing with Arlo, you will need three camera's of Defender vs two camera's of Arlo to do the same job.

    System was very easy to install. I would have given it 5 stars if the angle of view was larger. Good clear picture. I would recommend it.

    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.

    Works well for my situation- I wanted a monitor that I could view & watch what was going on outside on my porch. DID NOT want a system that uses an app on my cellphone! Very clear picture, and can view continuously or by motion detection. Does not use your WiFi. . has it's own antennas that work with the monitor antenna to "pair" the system together. It works for my situation!

    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 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.
