Categories > Video Monitoring Kits / All in One Systems > VONNIC > Vonnic DK4-CVI4404 4 Channel HDCVI 720P Real Time Recording DVR System with 4 x HDCVI 720P Day/Night Outdoor Cameras (HDD not Included)

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 VONNIC Products
Pros: I own (have for years) 3 separate VONNIC security DVR systems. I can honestly say that their customer service is the best I've dealt with in a long time. They answer phones (no phone tree), they stand behind their products, they resolve consumer problems (in warranty or not), they have sharp experts ready to help you with setup issues. Is really refreshing to do business with a company that makes first class products and above all has first a class support team that is far above the industry norm. What more could a consumer ask for?
Cons: I've got no idea.

Categories > Video Monitoring Kits / All in One Systems > Swann Communications > Swann SWDVK-163208S-US 16 Channel 960H H.264 Level Surveillance DVR Kit w/ 1TB HDD and 8 x 700TVL, 85’ Night Vision, IP67 Outdoor Camera

Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3 Good DVR, cheap cameras
Pros: I have purchased 4 of these DVRs for my company. The DVR is very good, particularly for the price. The latest software update for the PC app is much improved and makes finding recorded clips much easier, as you can now view up to 4 channels of recorded video at once.

The app for the iPhone/iPad is also very good viewing live video. It is not very easy to find recorded clips with the iOS app, but that is something you would normally want to do from a PC anyway.
Cons: The cameras that come with this kit are not very well made at all. We have about a dozen of them hooked up and out of those, about half have problems reverting to night vision mode even during the day. Also the image quality is not great on them when you compare them to some of the higher end cameras available.

The PC app has a couple limitations. You cannot view cameras from different DVRs at the same time. You have to log into separate DVRs individually. When you log into a DVR, it shows none of the cameras by default. You have to manually drag each channel to a screen to view it, and there is no way to save the configuration so it opens that way the next time you log in.
Other Thoughts: Good middle of the road DVR, cheap cameras. You are better off buying the DVR by itself and getting better cameras separately.

Categories > Video Monitoring Kits / All in One Systems > LaView USA > LaView LV-KD3468B Complete 16 CH HDMI Security DVR System w/ Easy DIY Eight 520TVL Infrared Surveillance Cameras (No HDD) - Retail

Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3
Pros: Bought on sale for $160. DVR is rather empty when you first open it up, but simple is good. Less things to break. No issues connecting 3TB WD Purple drive. Quality is so-so but I wasn't expecting much at this price range.
Cons: The Web interface is less than desirable. Web GUI only works on IE. P2P is sketchy at best. The website is NOT secured by SSL, not even HTTPS without a cert! Plain text all the way. I'm staying away from P2P until laviewcloud.com is at least SSL enabled.

Instructions are not too good, but they do have quite a lot of tutorial videos on the website.

iOS app simply does not want to connect via IP.
Other Thoughts: Have not installed the cameras to the exterior yet. Only set up to make sure all cameras and DVR was functioning.

Categories > Video Monitoring Kits / All in One Systems > LaView USA > LaView LV-KD514FD7S 4 Channel H.264 Level CUBE Plus Advanced Face Detection 4 Channel DVR + 4 x 700TVL Cameras (No HDD Included)

Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1 UPDATE #2
Pros: NONE ON THIS UPDATE
Cons: I just setup this unit "second one" & the cables are no good , during the daylight hours the cams work great , good clear image but when it starts to get dark "dusk" they flicker most of the time until it's totally dark & then I get weird colors popping up , this sucks because I had to order more cables from another company & hopefully this takes care of the problem , I think "LaView" should send me new cables because I wasted money on ordering others
Other Thoughts: I would still buy this unit in a heartbeat because my first unit works great , I'm only giving this review 1 egg because the cables are bad & with good cables makes all the difference

Categories > Video Monitoring Kits / All in One Systems > SHIELDeye > SHIELD Series RSCM-0704B042 - 4-Channel, H.264-Level DVR Surveillance Kit + Four 700TVL Cameras - Night Vision Up to 65 Feet, Remote Viewing Supported (HDD Not Included)

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Great Home Surveillance
Pros: Good visual quality day/night cameras, cameras are well constructed, included 4x 50ft cables more than adequate for most homes if DVR is centrally located, cameras were easy to install, DVR was a breeze to setup and the remote viewing app for my phones and tablets were also very easy to use as the DVR interface has a QR code shown on the TV/monitor (which ever you have connected to the DVR) and the mobile app simply scans the code and is instantly connected for remote viewing purposes. Price is great compared to other surveillance systems of similar setup. I HIGHLY recommend Shield Surveillance systems.
Cons: Kit did not come with a HDD (needed for storing video), but for an extra $25-$40 you can get an inexpensive HDD from Newegg, so this almost isn't even a con. Still cheaper than other systems.
Other Thoughts: I've used Swann surveillance systems in the past and had TONS of issues with them, including having to upgrade firmware for DVR boxes before they could be connected to the net and cameras coming damaged straight out of the box, not to mention half the pages on Swanns website are dead. Will never use Swann again.

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Great Product
Pros: The cameras are great. Install was fairly easy as well. The user interface on the DVR and the app are it bit clunky but nonetheless are still a lot better in comparison with other systems. Its very small and easy to hide.
Cons: It took a bit of time to program the cameras recording.
