    Not bad

    For months I've been looking for security cameras for our home but didn't want to spend 500 plus for some that I wasn't sure if they would meet my wants. But then I came across a black Friday deal for 200 bucks and figured eh what the heck I'd give them a try and i think they are really great for the price. The were kinda of a pain to hook up because of the wires but I wanted these because of that, I was of interference w the wireless ones. On top of that I love the idea that u can use ur phone or laptop to check the cameras anytime of the day or night which is great when were away from the house or even in bed not wanting to get up, definitely peace of mind. I would definitely recommend these to a friend wanting peace of mind. Also the night vision isn't bad at all eather I'm adding a picture so u can see that.

    i like that night owl has no extra fees. works with or with out internet, you have options. I choose wired to prevent hacking, someone gaining access to my home or just watching. (it can happen) You can always add a small wireless or motion sensor one for watching your DVR box or just hide it really good. I Have enough bills I don't need to pay for a cloud That I have no idea who is controlling it. Installed my self it wasn't hard just time consuming, well worth it.

      Good Afternoon and thank you for the review! We couldn't agree more! A wired system is the most secure option in the market and we don't like burdening our customers with monthly fees.

    Cameras take very clear pictures and have a longer range than stated on the package. The cameras will take pictures at night as well, but the cameras must be outside to do so. The quality of the night pictures depends on the amount of light from the moon, street lights, head lights, etc. Obviously, if you can't see what is in the dark, neither will the camera; if there is enough light for you to see the cameras will be able to do so as well.

    I opened up the box and checked that everything was there and went to work. Approximately 1 1/2 Hours later I had the first 4 of 6 cameras installed and was very pleased, my wire management has something to be desired but who cares it worked. the system is more than what I expected (quality wise) and that being tied in with an awesome Best buy price you can't go wrong buying this

    Finally, put cameras up and they are more than what I expected as in clarity and quality. The clarity is very clear and the HD is amazing even when you zoom in. The night vision mode still gives a clear picture also. I would rate these cameras more than 5 stars in my book. For the price I paid $249 on Black Friday they are well worth it!!!

    the visibility on these are incredable , we have these since people have been opening the doors to the stands setting the alarms off and leaving we have been able to identify 2 people using these as well as we have these over our cash registers.

    Yes, it's wired, but it's cheap and it works compared to the wireless ones that you have to pay monthly fees for. By the way, my old receiver of a different brand died...this hooked right into my old cameras and cables with no issues!

    I’m really enjoying the system,. Just installed it last night so I’m still figuring everything out. 1080 Resolution makes a big difference. It very clear and shows in color in the day and b/w when night vision is on.
