    Just what I needed

    Very convenient and easy to use and install. Bought it for the instant view of my front and back door. I was tired of the ring door bell. Every time the ring doorbell went off I had to grab my phone, open it and by that time the person was gone. I put it in my living room when I'm downstairs watching tv. Then when I go to bed I just plug it in upstairs next to my nightstand. Also has an awesome sleep function that turns the screen off until someone activates the motion sensor then the screen turns back on then back off.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    VERY EASY TO INSTALL. PLUG AND PLAY. WORKS GREAT FOR WHAT I NEEDED. SINGLE-CAMERA IS FULL SCREEN, BUT THE SPLIT-SCREEN IS NOT AS SHOWN OR PROMOTED. THE SPLIT-SCREEN IS MUCH SMALLER THAN REPRESENTED AND HARDER TO SEE.

    Installed in lambing barn so we could watch from the house. Has worked well and saved us several trips to the barn. I.m impressed how well the speakers work as we can also hear what is going on. Great product!

    This is an okay camera with minimal features. Pretty simple to use. Plug and play. The picture quality is not the greatest but for the price it's acceptable.

    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.
