great little system,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Night Owl Security STA-84 Night Owl Security 8 Channel STA DVR with 4 Night Vision Cameras 500 GB HD and Smartphone Viewing, 30-Feet (Electronics)
This system does just as advertised! After reading some of the mixed reviews I was hesitant to buy it, but did. Initial setup was a breeze. Plug things in, turn things on, everything works. DVR setup was equally simple. I had to call tech support when I couldn't get my Verizon wireless gateway to accept the port forwarding. I waited about 10 minutes on hold, was 3rd in line. The lady tech had my modem tweaked in no time and went on to set up the remote features. I fought with IE for a while, then just installed Night Owl's software. I was instantly controlling and seeing everything from a remote location using my laptop. On a whim I got the Nite Owl Lite app for iPod touch and within a couple of minutes I could see and control the cams from my pod. Pic quality in daylight is great, total darkness shows up bright. Five stars for this one and their tech support.
