Categories > Video Monitoring Kits / All in One Systems > Zmodo > Zmodo KDH6-CARQZ6ZN 16 Channel H.264 DVR Kit (No HDD), 16 X 600TVL, 3.6mm Wide Angle Lens, 24 IR LEDs for 65ft Night Vision

Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1 no support
Pros: It works, but I have to give this item a low rating because it has essentially no tech support. A DVR is a sophisticated system and it requires some tweaking to make it work effectively for one's application. Without support it is difficult to impossible to get the system settings correct.
Cons: The manual is terrible. As an engineer I have written many tech manuals and I have read hundreds more. This one is one of the worst I've seen. Forget about telephone support. I called and was told there was a 63 minute hold time. I submitted questions via live chat. After 5 days still no reply. The Zmodo web site does not list this model.

The unit beeps constantly when motion is detected. Wakes me up at night. Can't find a way to turn off the beep.

The image quality of these 600 TVL cameras is worse than the image provided by some 420 TVL cameras I have of another brand.
Other Thoughts: If Zmodo were to get its act together on support I could live with this brand. Otherwise I will not waste any more money on a Zmodo product.

Categories > Video Monitoring Kits / All in One Systems > LaView USA > LaView LV-KDV2608W1 16 Channel H.264 Level 960H 16CH HD Security DVR System w/ Easy DIY 8 x 1000TVL Infrared Surveillance Cameras (No HDD)

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Would Recommend
Pros: Video and Picture detail is very clear. I mean very clear. Night time view is the clearest I have seen on a low end DVR system. Usually only see this on a 1500 dollars and up system .Great mobile viewing with Skyview cam. Can even do play back from your DVR with it. TV HDMI is how I would go. It looks great. But I use a 27 inch. High resolution monitor, Which looks the same.
Cons: Doesn't work with Laview or Laview HD app for android phones. Need to use Laview Plus or Skyview.. When hooking up to a video monitor it doesn't use defaut 1024 by768. So if your monitor dosen't support higher resolution you will have to use hdmi or use a different monitor and set the default resolution. Then you can use a low end monitor.
Other Thoughts: If you don't know about port forwarding on your router? I would look it up and learn a little about it. Or call a friend over who does and have him set that part up.

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Great System
Pros: Excellent system for home user. Got everything you would need to monitor the 4 corners of your home or small business. Cameras are great in daytime and are very good at night. Night viewing works great and needs little amount of light to do well. Very solid system.
Cons: none
Other Thoughts: The LaViewPlus app for iPhone works awesome. I can watch live video on all 4 cameras on my iPhone 5c. A bit tricky to setup but LaView Tech support is excellent. I would recommend LaView products to all.

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5
Pros: Great color quality on cameras in daytime and B/W at night is very clear. Needs very little lighting to display video at night. Very happy with buying this product.
Cons: Specs do not specify which type of HD is best for the system. Was informed I should have bought the WD Purple Sata drive for this or any surveillance system.
Other Thoughts: Still having problems getting my IPhone 5 to connect to the dvr. I have tried Laview Live, AseePro and Super vMeye and still no luck. Ports are open. Online video shows how simple it is but don't help when not connecting to dvr :(
I will succeed in getting it to work :)

Categories > Video Monitoring Kits / All in One Systems > LaView USA > LaView LV-KD5188D-T1 Cube Series 8 CH Security DVR Cloud System w/ 1TB HDD Easy DIY Eight 600TVL Infrared Surveillance Cameras

Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4 Good for what you pay for
Pros: Easy setup and good quality for day time. Quite DVR. Good length cords for the cameras for a small to medium size house or business.
Cons: The cameras had lines going through them when first got it and had to change some setting to get it to work properly. short power cord for the DVR. takes up 3 power outlets. just OK during night time use had to play with setting to make it look better.
Other Thoughts: For the price of $200 one of the best buys you can get.

Categories > Video Monitoring Kits / All in One Systems > LaView USA > LaView LV-KDV0404B6S Complete 4 Channel Security DVR System Easy DIY Four 600TVL Infrared Surveillance Cameras (No HDD)

Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3 Good core product, bad peripherals
Pros: The central unit works as advertised and is a good recorder for the price.
Cons: The mouse and remote are useless, stop working almost immediately and aren't labeled properly. The manual is in incomprehensible machine-translated Chinglish so don't expect any help there. You have to just do trial-and-error on the very unfriendly interface using the main unit buttons.
Other Thoughts: Typical low-priced Chinese product -- you can get the basic functionality working if you know what you're doing but don't expect to get any support or for any of the frills to work.

Categories > Video Monitoring Kits / All in One Systems > Zmodo > Zmodo KDS8-NARQZ4ZN 8 Channel H.264 Level Surveillance DVR Kit

Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4 a few oddities fixed
Pros: Great price, small and lightweight
Cons: After adding a WD 2TB AV HDD I ran into some beeping/rebooting problems. But fixed them (see other)
Could use at least one external sensor input. But for the price? Hey.
Also mouse was intermittently functional.
Other Thoughts: After adding a WD 2TB AV HDD I ran into some beeping/rebooting problems. Did some YouTube research and found that if the HDD wasn't freshly formatted with NO cameras plugged in, it would do this. Still had the problem after the format. I even ran SpinRite on the HDD for over 100 hours (level 2) but found the drive had no errors. Finally I decided to replace the intermittent mouse and that took care of the beep/reboot problems. Good thing too because my dog was afraid of the beeps and had abandoned me.
This unit runs hot with no fan so added a couple of micro squirrel cage fans plugged into the socket provided for a fan and now all is cool albeit slightly less quiet than before.

Categories > Video Monitoring Kits / All in One Systems > eSecure, Inc. > ESECURE ES038567 8 CH + 6 Day & Night Cameras(4x IR Bullet +2x IR DOME) with Remote Web/SmartPhone Live View Security System Kit

Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1 Eh
Pros: Worked for 2 and one half years.
Cons: Failed after 2 and one half years. It stopped writing or recognizing hard drives. I had the 3 year extended warranty, but they expected me to tear out all of the wiring to ship it back with the DVR. All for a gift card. Worthless.
Other Thoughts: Do not buy extended warranty. Its just profit for Newegg.
