This system was easy to install and set up, I am very pleased with the camera quality both during the day light hours and with the night vision. The fact that I can view my protected area over the internet is also a very big plus, I can now make sure that my property is safe and secure no matter where I travel. I would recommend this system to anyone that wants to make sure their property is kept safe.

The product was very easy to install, the directions are very easy to follow and once installed it did provide exactly all the features. I installed the camaras to a 32" flat screen tv and works to perfection. The internet connections is just great and i'm able to view the property from my Blackberry and select which angle shot I want to view. The system during the night time is just amazing it may be to the fact that it's connected to the HD TV but i'm very pleased. These past view days it has been pouring rain like crazy and it does give you a great picture quality. In all this product is great for the asking price and will be buying a second system to be installed in my vacation home. Great Product!

I am pleased with the video security system. The setup was easy except for running all the wires in the cramped attic. The DVR works good except it does add some background noise to the room. The wireless part works good so that I can see the video over the internet. I wish I had purchased cameras with longer night vision capability. But the system does a good job.

Decent system for the money

Resoultion is ok, but not as sharp (only 2 settings) as I expected. The motion detection aspect will pick up insects flying near the cameras @ night... which is not good because the recorder keeps starting up... unless you want to record bugs. I haven't explored all the features so I do believe more fun is in store.
Another good point to having the system is that once people notice the cameras... they are on their best behavior from then on. Overall.. pretty good, just don't expect high end performance from a low $ setup.
