Easy to follow review,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Uniden UDR444 Guardian 4.3-Inch Video Surveillance System with 2 Cameras (UDR444) (Electronics)
The monitor is easy to use. it explains itself without the manual through a good basic user interface. recording will only function when the sd card is inserted, and the monitor is NOT plugged into your computer. if the computer or mobile function is used it will not record. also, it will only record the screen being used. if it is quad view set, that will record. if it is single camera, that will record.
PC functions are very poorly laid out in the instructions. the installation is a breeze, however, there is no included program to view the cameras from. the computer imply recognizes a live cam is attached and you use it much the same way you would any plug n play webcam. that being said the skype accessibility is well explained and functions as advertised.
the functionality for coming right out of the box is again as advertised. however for recording, and more often viewing recordings, my monitor thus far has been freezing up more than a few times. also my computer has what seems like a personal issue with the file format, although it could be my software and will update this late if applicable.
through walls and distance in my modest size place, it has had no connection issues, and has functioned more or less as advertised. it isnt top of the line. is for people who need something. not need to watch every corner and record every minute. but to have that something, those extra eyes. it works great.
