This is traversed the negativity of those saying bad things about this system. I purchased this system with two cameras and I can't believe how easy it was to set up. My cameras are not in line with the transmitter and I have a full signal from the cameras. The cameras are on the outside of my house at the opposite side of where the transmitter is. I have called for support and got nothing but great response yes I did wait a little bit on the phone but in the end they were very helpful. No more than 15 to 20 minutes. I no longer had my cameras up more than a week and we caught someone trying to break into my wife's car. Called Lorex to help me figure out how to save the file to my computer and that went very well. We brought the criminal to justice police found who he was and was arrested thank you Lorex. My wife and I are actually going to buy two more cameras to add to my DVR so for those who read the negativity about these cameras it's so not true take it from a very picky consumer this is a great system for the money good luck with your shopping.

Bought these as add on to the boxed set with 4 cameras. Hooked up easily and immediately read into the system over our existing wifi. Pictures immediatley came up on our Android phones. Pictures are clear and colors are good.

Well made.Easy installation. Very good picture. I have 4 and they have weathered freezing temperatures and heavy thunderstorms with no problems. The range on these can be limited by the type of structure between the transmitter and receiver. If you have a lot of walls or metal siding you will get about 50 feet. Night vision is very good. The LEDs illuminate for quit a distance. Very good value.

Lets start out by saying we really liked the picture quality, the lack of having to run only power to the camera, and the ability to locate the camera's outside our house almost anywhere we wanted. I placed them from one end of the house to the other and down the two walls facing driveway and street. Where it went wrong for us was the unknown factor. Video signal interference. I never read a word that it could be a problem with our router. I installed a new 2-camera Lorex wireless system with recorder, plugging the DVR into the required router. I ordered a pair of extra camera's from Amazon.com to enhance the ability for more coverage. I am a slow learner I guess. I knew there was a problem pretty quickly, but I could not put my finger on it until my wife returned from a trip and told me that she could not connect to the Internet with her iPad, laptop, or notebook. Were talking less than 15' from the room where the router was. I realized that my router was not functioning properly, and especially when my iPhone sent me a message that it had not updated/downloaded photo's for 2-weeks. It requires a WiFi connection and being plugged in to be charged, to automatically upload. I place the phone on a table about 20' from the router when I charge it. I went through 4-new routers including a $200 Nighthawk, and none worked in our small home. Long story short, as soon as I unplugged the power to all 4-camera's, my original non-working router was fine again. It seemed to me that the wireless signal was interfering with my router signal and squeezing WiFi down to only work in the same room where the router was installed. Any router I installed. Were talking less than 10'. I liked almost everything about the Lorex wireless system, right up to when I unplugged it all, and sent everything back...

Video is choppy and signal drops in and out every few seconds even though camera and receivers are only 50 feet apart and line of sight. I only get recorded video half the time because of the constant signal loss. The reports of wireless internet interference are true, my wi-fi slows to a crawl when the camera's are powered up. Also, placement of the antennea on the camera unit keeps it from fully swiveling to the left when installed no matter what position you place the base. Don't recommend.

I bought this system for my boutique and I love them. Hubby installed on his iPhone and me to my android. They are easy to install, not sure why some are saying its complicated. You just hang where you want, plug them into dvr and they are fine. Setting it up to the monitor was easy as well. Once you go to the lorex site theres nothing to it but entering the codes from dvr box.

These are much better than the cheaper Lorex wireless cameras. I tried them first in an outdoor project and they filled with water the first time it rained. These don't do that. So if you plan to use cameras outdoors spend the extra money and get these. They also have very good range. There are some setups where I have 4 or 6 of these on the same system.

Buyer beware! If you have a router/modem working on a 2.4Ghz frequency band these cameras will jam your wifi signal, rendering your wireless Internet connection useless. When the cameras are up and running our download speed tanks to just under 1Mbs from 50Mbs when the cameras are off. Doesn't matter where you place the wireless camera adapter, either. Ours is located in a second floor bedroom next to the DVR, while my modem/router is two floors down in the basement!

The cameras work perfectly and easy to install. The image at night is very clear. Be aware that if you have Wireless internet at home, this cameras will interfere with the Wireless router because they operate on the same frequency range, so you may see a reduction in your internet speed while the cameras are operating.

Good wireless camera. The led lights work good at night, because you can see the area where the camera is focused unlike the old ones I got which shows only white snowy picture. This is recommended to anyone who wants a good wireless camera.
