Top Customer Reviews
The camera itself is wonderful, (after the main unit arrived.). Was able to connect to the monitor along with the other cameras without a problem. And the viewing options, provided you have the main system in place, is totally awesome!! I can view my cams from phone while at work, or from my tablet while sitting at the doctors office.
The motion sensing is too sensitive even when turned down at the monitor. Just about anything will set it off and sometimes it is pretty hard to figure out what set it off.
Finally, the resolution by current standards is pretty lousy.
As for the camera:
- Resolution - 320 x 240
- Recorded Image -- Day / Well Lit - Color
- Recorded Image --Night / Poor Lit - Black & White
- Audio - Only while watching, does not record Audio
Picture Quality - Reasonable, this mostly depends on what is in the field of view and where it is mounted
Camera Battery -- < 1 Minute (Consider a cheap UPS)
Overall Rating 3 Stars
- Very easy set-up - Encrypted Wireless Video (plus 1 Star)
- Excellent picture
- Range for me was excellent @ 2500 feet for my longest
- Listen to the active camera audio
- Antenna is black
- Power Cable is Black (can't remove the black power cable)
Picture Quality - Providing you mounted it in a good spot and adjusted the brightness to the best picture, you get a very clear picture, more than enough to positively identify a person, in the day time uniforms are clear, mail person, UPS, FedEx and such.
Camera Battery Life Workaround
I bought a 30 buck APC UPS unit for the outside camera, this give the camera a few hours on the UPS battery.
Mounting the Camera’s (This is the hard part!)
If you want a professional looking job this is a LOT of work because the cameras need power and that part is not wireless. This means running wire up and through walls and if you have not done that kind of work before it is not for the novice. Personally I would not use the included wire inside my walls so I got some bell wire (2 conductor 18 gauge copper wire) that is rated to be put in walls. While this is all very low voltage (5VDC @ 1A) which significantly reduces the risk of a fire from a shorted cable, it does not eliminate it completely. Also note that running the existing wire through and up the inside of a wall means pulling the connector through the hole and inside the wall and there is a good probability that it will break in the process, it was not designed to be pulled through a wall.
Before mounting, take a cam and the console to the spot, get the field of view you want both in the Day time and Night time, I found that a good spot in the day is not always a good spot at night, so check it in both conditions. Also consider this, when using motion detection if the cam can see a road or sidewalk anyone passing by in a car or walking will trigger it, as well as things like headlights sweeping by the cam at night, it thinks that is motion. Also make sure it is not pointed directly at any lights, likes your porch light.
