1. The range isn't great if you are going through several walls in your house. I can put 5-6 walls between the camera and receiver (the LCD screen) and it will stretch from one end of my house to the other (camera outside, TV inside), so about 60+ feet, and it works fine and I'll see 2-3 out of 5 signal bars (which indicate the signal strength). But, I will see some interference with the receiver within a few feet of other electronics at this distance, under that 60 foot span and interference doesn't seem to be an issue. Take a bunch of walls out of the equation and the range seems to go 100+ feet with ease.
2. It's a digital signal so rather than getting a bad picture when the signal goes week you'll either lose the picture or it would appear that the framerate drops. This is actually a good thing since you still capture video (and audio) even without a perfect signal. Overall, the framerate isn't spectacular. It's way better than most "caught on film" type surveillance footage we've all seen (I'm looking at you Pentagon 9/11 footage) but I'd guess we're talking about 10-15 FPS at best? If the signal drops it goes down to just a few FPS (roughly).
3. You get a 2Gb SD card but you can use up to a 32Gb card to get up to (their claim) 60 or so hours of recording, at which point you can set it to overwrite the card and start over.
4. The cameras capture audio VERY well. I could hear (while I watched) people walking 50-75+ feet away, you can hear cars coming long before they appear on your street, you can hear anyone walking or talking anywhere around the camera (50-75+ feet easily). You can push a button and talk back so that the camera outputs your voice to them as well, great for a front door camera!
5. The recording functions work well, but once recording you can't do certain things like change the volume or change cameras. So if you set it to record you are stuck on whatever screen it is one (which will be 1 camera at a time or the 4 camera split screen). It's easy enough to stop/start recording if you needed to change something but seems odd not to let me adjust the volume while recording. If you set it to use the motion record then this isn't likely to be an issue for you.
6. The motion sensor does have some limits so it would be fine for anyone close to your house/camera but things across a street (for example) don't seem to trip it. This makes sense, it's really the same technology as a motion sensing security light so until you are relatively close it doesn't trip the sensor.
7. The night vision works great and it seems to light up a decent area. It normally shows up in color but night vision will be black and white as usual. In all cases, the picture is very good, very clear. On that note, it's a 640x480 image the cameras send back. Not exactly HD, but pretty good for what it is.
8. Setting it up couldn't be easier and this is one of the few items that truly is plug and play. Plug in the camera power. Plug in the TV power, flip the TV to on. You're done. It's all paired and just works.
Overall, this thing is awesome and for the price you can't beat it. I'd highly recommend this for casual surveillance of your house, like watching front door, checking for package deliveries, keeping an eye on a normal sized front yard area, etc.
There are a few different modes that you can use with the system and I will try to describe them:
1)Continuous recording. This is what I wanted to do and I was disappointed to find out that while you can continuously record both cameras in 'quad view' there is no time stamp or audio on the recording. I called their support line (one hour wait) and the guy didn't seem to know how it was supposed to work, so I was transferred to someone else and waited another 15 minutes. I finally got confirmation that there is no time stamp and no audio if you record both cameras in continuous mode. We are currently recording one camera in continuous mode and it works great- it breaks the video up into 10 minute segments on the SD card.
2) Motion - I was nearly as disappointed with motion recording with this system as I was with the defender system. Both have settings to record 5, 15, or 30 seconds after motion is detected. I can't comprehend WHY anyone would design a system that does not offer a way to record motion until the motion stops! Detecting motion is faster in this system than the defender, but neither system catches motion as soon as it occurs, this one starts recording a second or two after it starts, the defender system didn't record until 5 or 6 seconds after motion starts.
3) Scan - scan mode, which moves from one camera to another can't be recorded in continuous mode, only motion. These systems seem to get confused when motion moves from the field of view of one camera to another, there is a delay in switching to the camera detecting motion unless it happens to be the one on the screen at the moment.
Video is good, if my dogs are running the video is a little choppy but you can definitely make them out. Night video is black and white and is clear enough to make out anything that is in view of the camera.
Audio is superb, I can hear people talking 100 feet away. The mic is cheap and some sounds are distorted but you can definitely make out words. It has two way audio capability which was nice when my husband was adjusting the cameras because I could guide him remotely while watching the monitor.
Support is abysmal. I emailed the company with a question yesterday morning and never heard back so decided to call them, before you call make sure you have registered the product on their website or you will have to hang up and go register it before they will talk to you. I was on hold for an hour to speak to an off-shore based support tech who had no idea how the system even worked, it was only after being transferred that I could get a half way decent answer. Lorex really needs to step up their game with regards to support on a scale of 1-10 their support deserves a 0.
I'm not sure I would have purchased it if I had realized how limited dual camera recording was, but that probably would not be an issue for most people and unless they have unique needs (I need 24/7 audio/video to prove that my dogs are not barking when my lovely neighbor calls animal control and claims they are) the system would probably be more than satisfactory.
