    Poor Quality, Not as Advertised

    Quality: Picture quality is very poor even on a the small 7" monitor that was included. Very difficult to see anything more than 30 fee from the camera. Biggest problem: This is advertised as Indoor/Outdoor but if you visit the web site and read the manual (no manual is included with the unit) it specifically says NOT WATERPROOF and advises against placing the camera where it can be affected by weather (such as Rain and Snow). Don't see how that is outdoor if you can't place it where it can get wet. Would not recommend this.

    Not entirely "wireless"

    I bought this as I needed a outdoor cam to monitor my side property and thought this would be ideal. However, it requires a AC power source for the camera and proved to be much more involved to mount and run the wire where I could plug it in. Hence my need for something totally wireless. Otherwise it had a good picture on the small 7" monitor it comes with. Also, there was NO instruction manual included to explain how to use all of it's features. I had to go online to their website to view it.

    Camera works awesome. Picture and sound is good. It picks up any amount of sound. Wanted something simple that works as a stand alone thing, without having to be hooked up to the internet, apps and what not. Good purchase exactly what I was looking to get. Be nice to get a 2nd camera for the intercom function alone. It can do 4 of them if you want to. So yeah, I'd definitely recommend it.

    Rain and humidity

    When it's dry the camera works great. Very clear picture. But after a heavy rain or when the humidity is high it fogs up badly. I took it apart and water just ran out. Dried it out the sealed all of the seems but humidity once again fogs up the lens. Never had that problem with a Uniden.

    i have it on motion an only records when there is motion. can talk to a person an the color is real. i only got it with one camera now i am thinking of getting a second camera. make sure there is a outdoor plug to plug camera into. the monitor needs no set up just plug it into your wall socket an watch. you tube will also give a monitor set up.enjoy

    The camera has a great picture. The system is easy to install. Just plug in the camera and the monitor and follow set up steps. Was easy to set up. My wife loves that she can see who is at the front door and speak to them if she wants to without having to open the door.

    Great purchase my only issue is it was my understanding that I could add more cameras later. Now I find out I cant purchase the same cameras without buying another monitor and I dont need a second monitor.

    Easy set up. Does a great job of recording. Night vision is also great, you can see everything, even with the porch light off. So pleased with the defender I bought 2 of them.

    I needed a security camera that came with a small monitor to sit on my desk at work. This equipment is perfect for an office.

    Great but should invest in two. Motion sensor works great they even sense when someone is walking down the street.
