The instructions are vague at best, but the set up as relatively easy (if you know how to set up a router you can do this)
The UI leaves quite a bit to be desired, The playback feature is clunky difficult to use. if you've ever used any kind of security system in a professional manner this does not hold a candle to and as far as video playback an search.
And for the price the cameras are good enough I did expect them to be a little more clear but they work. The night vision is very good it really does reach out quite far (infrared)
The stock cables that come with it are black so be aware , I wish they were a little more sturdy I felt as if I could break them easily. I did also have a defective camera I have yet to get any kind of response from Q-See as far as any kind of return/exchange or placement
The issue is the infrared switch that changes the lights and the mode of the camera is stuck in night vision.
It's been a week and I have not heard one thing back from Q-See I emailed them called them and submitted communication through there on website.
Beginning to think I'm s*** out of luck.
I was looking for a system for my home but really didn't want to spend too much money on a system just for my house. So I began looking. I spend 2-3 weeks searching and going between 2-3 different packages and arrived on this one. It was a great price, and game with a tb hard drive and 8 cameras. Can't complain. So I ordered it.
I wired it before it arrived at my house. I bought 4x4x2 crylon boxes and after I had all the wires in place (6 exterior, 2 interior), I mounted the Crylon boxes outside and mounted the Cameras to those. It looks really sharp. I have already gotten compliments o how it looks.
I then bought a nice little 16 inch flat screen dedicated for my DVR. (It was 80 bucks). I set the DVR up which was mostly straight forward. A few options they put into places I'm not used too but no big deal there. All manufacturers have their own scheme. I really like the interface though and how it looks. BIG name brands like Samsung have clunkier schemes. I hooked it up to the internet and was viewing these bad boys on my phones and computers in the house within minutes. Easiest Network setup I have ever done.
The only real "complaint" I have it that the 2 interior cameras have a really hard time staying in their color/day mode. Ill check at 3pm with ample light and they will be in dark/black and white mode. Kind of annoying but I will move them around and see if I can get better ambient lighting for them. Not really a big complain....just something I need to work on.
Overall, I recommend this. And Q-See did a great job for an package system.
Overall the system does what it designed to but a few things caused me to return it after only one day.
I tested all the cameras before starting to draw any wiring and noticed that one of the units was "stuck" in night mode regardless of efforts to calibrate or adjust the lighting in the room.
Additionally the DVR unit, after I had it set up to my preferences and online viewing, started rebooting several times at random intervals within the first few hours of operation. When the DVR restarts it makes a loud beeping noise which is rather annoying, in addition to your recording being interrupted.
Based on one bad camera and the seemingly unreliable DVR i decided to return immediately rather than risking having to pack it back up later on after a painful installation process.
An additional note for people wanting to install any of the cameras indoors: Be advised that the cameras will make a relatively loud clicking noise as they transition between day and night vision. It is not a deal breaker but if you are planning on setting a camera up in your child's bedroom (which I was contemplating since I travel much for work) the clicking could potentially become an issue.
There are a few cons with this system. First and probably most importantly is that this isn't a user friendly set up. It isn't plug and play type. You need to configure this properly and if it's your first camera system you may want to find something different or get someone whose familiar with camera systems to set this up for you. Second the picture quality isn't exactly great. Its good enough to see someone face up close but its far from great.
Overall I'm not disappointed at all with this system and felt like it was a good stepping stone into surveillance systems. If you are a tech savvy person I would get it.
