Customer Reviews

If you're not familiar with port forwarding, you'll be horribly lost on your own.
Amazon Customer
As consumer grade entry-level security camera systems go, the LaView HD-Like 960H systems are a very good product.
M. Vavrek
The connection and setting up the system to work for basic recording is very easy.

UPDATE 2:
1)I've given up on the motion detection software. I am contemplating setting up Blue Iris software on a dedicated PC/Media Server, which will fix motion detection false alarms. If LaView reads this, PLEASE update your software to be able to better fine tune the motion detection. I have tried absolutely everything to negate any false alarms, but nothing has worked. At night, the IR attracts bugs and the motion alarm goes crazy, even on lowest sensitivity. LaView customer service recommended I get a bug light/zapper nearby at attract them away from the cameras. I'm not in the swamp (I'm in Seattle) and installing bug lights around my house is a)overkill and b)rediculous. Blue Iris allows for motion detection to be fine tuned to the size of moving objects, for example, which will completely solve the LaView motion detection issue I have. Shadows even set off the alarm as to tree branches, etc. And again, that is on lowest settings with selected alarm zones turn on/off best I could.
2)The image needs to be better compressed and have better color range. I wish this had a dynamic light feature. As it is now, images get horribly washed out when the sun hit them or car lights drive by at night.

As it stands now, I'm keeping the system up and running, since I'm past the return window. I have set up the motion detection to not email me when it goes off and have taken time every day to go back through the recorded motion events video clips (see UPDATE comments below on navigating through the recorded video...)to see what's been "caught." 99% of the time so far it's been absolutely nothing. But I got this system for that 1% incident, so it's passable if you really take the time to hold its hand.

UPDATE:
The video recording playback is a nightmare to navigate.

As consumer grade entry-level security camera systems go, the LaView HD-Like 960H systems are a very good product.

Having returned two different Swann systems previously due to defects, poorly executed features, and non-existent support, the LaView system was refreshing in that it not only worked, but the functions it advertised were indeed intact.

Setting up the system does take some focused effort as the instructions aren't perfect, but the user-interface onscreen menus are pretty straight-forward and logical. LaView also has some great YouTube videos that demonstrate how to setup different aspects of the system.

The negative products reviews all seem to focus on poor image quality, but this seems largely due to users not being familiar with how to configure the video settings. If I change the encoding settings to have the "Highest" video quality, 30 fps, and a max bit rate of 2048, then I find I get a very good and clean image. I would even argue that the 960H 1.3MP cameras produce a better image than the 720P Swann system I returned previously. Viewing on the LaView SkyCam Android app also requires that you setup the video settings correctly there as well (there are presets for clearer images or more fluent, or even custom if you prefer). Bottom line is you can get a clean image if you adjust the video encoding and have a respectable home/internet network setup.

The only other big challenge I think folks will encounter is setting up the remote network. This is only a challenge in that LaView provides multiple options on how to use the product remotely, so you can do one thing or several. In most cases, you need to setup port forwarding on your router, but that really isn't a big deal if you follow some of the LaView YouTube videos.

My Q-See system kept giving me white screens for some of my cameras and I needed something to tide me over until I was ready to buy an IP-based system. I was somewhat skeptical of the resolution claims for this system, but figured I couldn't go wrong for less than $500. Coming from a 500TVL Q-See system, I have to say that the LaView cameras blow the Q-See cameras out of the water - the images are stunningly crisp, well-balanced, and absolutely beautiful. They're so sharp, I can read the license plates of cars zooming to/away from my house. Night vision is unreal - extremely vivid and sharp, and again, blows the Q-See cameras away. Unfortunately, it does not have a PTZ connection, so that may dissuade some customers who need that option.

The one issue I have with LaView is their poor documentation, or lack of. The user manual is just a stapled booklet with 10 pieces of paper - the worst I've ever seen and the PDF-version on the CD is exactly the same thing. Good thing LaView has a terrific support team - they're on the west coast and are not available until 12PM ET, so I submitted a ticket in the morning and by 12:15 ET I received a call, which I of course, missed. Not to fear: Jesus (he's in the support videos on YouTube) emailed me and I called him and he resolved the issue I had in 2 minutes. He advised they're working on better manuals, so that should make everyone's lives a little easier.

For those of you who have never set up a surveillance system before, the toughest task you'll have is setting it up for remote viewing - the manual contains nothing for this. You'll have to go to LaView's YouTube site to watch Jesus walk you through the process. He makes it very simple to get you up and going within a few minutes.
