GW 4 Channel 1080P NVR Kit PoE HD IP Security Camera System 4x Max 5 Megapixel 2.8~12mm Varifocal Lens 80 Feet Night Vision Water Proof Motion Detective QR-Code Scan Remote Smartphone View (2TB HDD)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: *Great customer service
*Great picture
*Awesome feature-set
*Android app
*Turn-key setup

Cons: Camera's could have came set to DHCP instead of all the same static IP, would have made configuration a breeze. If you get this or any other kit with the same camera's you'll want to connect each one individually during installation, otherwise the static IP's will step over each other, breaking your ability to connect over the network.

GW 4 Channel 1080P NVR Kit PoE HD IP Security Camera System 4x Max 5 Megapixel 2.8~12mm Varifocal Lens 80 Feet Night Vision Water Proof Motion Detective QR-Code Scan Remote Smartphone View (2TB HDD)

Pros: This kit is built with high-quality parts. The camera's all feel very sturdy, and the NVR/POE Switch are commercial grade stuff. Setup was a breeze once I decided to read the manual. The stubborn IT Guy in me figured I could do it without, but trust me it helps. The Android App leave a little to be desired, but its not bad, not worth knocking off an Egg for the review. I felt like a kid in the candy store when I opened the box to see all the high-quality stuff that came in the kit. Much better than the other brand item it'll be replacing. There truly is no comparison for them, so I won't bother. So far I've only seen the night time performance of these camera's and I'm extremely impressed so far. I'm not a fan of setting static IP's on each device, as things tend to change. If you've got a router than can set an IP reservation through DHCP I recommend that route. I was able to block out 5 IP's for this kit (NVR, 4 Cams) really quickly. Once I get more time in on the product I'm sure I'll only grow to like it more. The manual shows a lot of features I wasn't aware of, features that I believe will make my home security much more secure.

Cons: A small error on my part had me spend 45 minutes more than needed to setup and configure this kit. You've got to configure each camera one at a time as they come pre-programmed with the same static IP. DHCP would have made things a bit faster, but its no biggie for someone with a little knowledge of networking.

Other Thoughts: I had to contact GW Security a couple times, once for my ignorance, and once for updating the ship-to. Both times they responded quickly, and the issues were resolved. They even called me first thing in the morning (as I sent support an email after hours). I have no doubt in my mind that I'd recommend this company and their products.

This review is from: Lorex SG-630 Imitation Professional Indoor/Outdoor Camera

Pros: Had this thing up for a few years after a few break in's. After it went up they stopped. Ended up going with real video recently so this came down and was given to a friend. A good buy for someone who wants to potentially scare off intruders.

Cons: LED light does not light up. Battery operated LED would have been nice.
