This review is from: Night Owl ADV1-88500 8 Channel Advanced H.264 DVR, 8 Day&Night Cameras, 500GB HDD, Surveillance DVR Kit

Pros: It works as it should to display and record video.

Cons: Tech support is despicable. Their web-site has been down for days. I finally got through to a phone tech after hours of waiting. He acknowledged their site was having issues and I could not log on nor get the version upgrade I needed. They did not have the courtesy to put up a “sorry we are having technical problems” splash page letting me spend hours trying to get what I needed. Windows 8.1 with IE 11 will not browse into the Nightowl DVR even after turning all the security off. My Win7 and XP works. Also cannot get in via my tablets, Nook, or Kindle. Tech support only offered we might try Safari 5.1. A new buyer ought to try Swann. Swann even offers DDNS hosting. Wish I had.

4 out of 5 eggsGood for starters

This review is from: Night Owl ADV1-88500 8 Channel Advanced H.264 DVR, 8 Day&Night Cameras, 500GB HDD, Surveillance DVR Kit

Pros: 8 channels
easy to setup
camera mounting hardware makes it easy to install the cameras and replace them in the future
Record on triggers

Cons: Cameras are a bit fuzzy at night. If you had to use this to clearly identify a person upgrading the cameras would be needed.

They also don't seem to handle rain/misty air as they fog up fairly quickly.

Included software doesn't seem to find the unit as it states bad password even though all the accounts created can login directly.

Other Thoughts: It is a good starter unit for monitoring. It does seem to run a little slow when trying to view previous videos and work with them.

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent service

This review is from: Night Owl ADV1-88500 8 Channel Advanced H.264 DVR, 8 Day&Night Cameras, 500GB HDD, Surveillance DVR Kit

Pros: Very easy to set up and follow instructions. Great idea to search recording with 4 cameras at the time. we Also have an old system that searches one camera at the time and is cumbersome to operate.

Cons: Unable to search all four cameras at the time because the control pad interferes with the vieweing. If the control pad is occult, searching is limited to one speed only.
