I live in rowhome/townhome with a common driveway in the rear. We live in an urban area. A few weeks ago, someone walked into my yard and stole a bike that was locked to my fence. I was more concerned than angry as it was located near my back door and I was home at the time. What's to stop them from coming inside next?

I've been thinking about getting a security camera for some time. After the theft, I started checking Amazon and found the Zmodo system. The reviews were all 5 stars at the time of my purchase. At around $200.00 for 4 cameras and a 500GB DVR, I figured I couldn't go wrong. If you search Zmodo on that popular video sharing site, people claim the 500GB will hold about 30 days of video and it can be set to overwrite. Once set, you can basically leave it alone and review an incident if needed.

As of this writing, I have two of the four cameras installed. I have them both mounted on the rear of my home and pointed towards the drive. I've never owned a security camera before, so I have nothing to compare them to, but I am very satisfied with the clarity of the cameras during the daytime. From where I have them positioned, I can see my yard and beyond. I don't believe I can read a license plate, but my next door neighbor has a cargo van and I can read his advertising. Our back drive is very dark. Nighttime viewing is ok, but not great. However, I have a motion light mounted to the rear of my home and when it goes on, I can see my yard quite clearly.

I've been using the system for about a week. Overall, I am quite pleased with my purchase. It does exactly what I need it to do at a very affordable price.

Pros: It comes with 4 cameras and you can add 4 more. It's easy to install, the camera picture quality is good.

This security camera system works pretty well, view angle is amazing in every light condition, the installation was easy, I installed them in my restaurant we move all the cables throw the ceiling without issues. If you are looking for some system that delivers efficiency, easy install and a fair price I think you're on the right way for sure. Some things you must consider is to buy extra long cables if you need to cover big areas like me.
Speaking about the software...pretty easy to use, we only experiment some delays on remote access config because our Internet provider is a mess (not ZMODO fault's).
I think if you buy it, you'll not be disappointed.

I am a professional installer of CCTV surveillance system and I recently purchased this for a customer who wanted a very low budget system. As the saying goes you get what you pay for. I ended up using the DVR and replaced the cameras from another supplier.

PROS: The DVR is usable, customer service is excellent ( to make up for the quality of the product), very easy to network system. PRICE

CONS: Camera resolution very low and dose not produce true colors (I will upload some pics to demonstrate), if the camera is facing any type of shrubbery they appear as a light purple haze and not green. The IR distance is less that 25ft.

This system would be suitable for a commercial area as a store or quick shoppe about 30' x 30'. With the cameras installed no higher that 8ft. Would not recommend it for outdoor surveillance.

Thought I needed help installing, but it only took me a total of 90 minutes to connect cables and mount hardware. The web access was fairly easy to configure as long as you go to [...] to do it. STILL working on getting it on my phone via the Zviewer Android App. Trying this page: [...]

I mounted the cameras INSIDE on my windows because I wanted easy access to them in case of technical difficulty or in case I needed to reposition. I also didn't want to run the risk of water damage or even vandalism -- which is the reason I got them in the first place -- someone stole our riding lawnmower. I uploaded a picture of what my screen looks like with the web access -- BEHIND a double-pane glass window. So imagine the clarity if I had them mounted OUTSIDE.

The picture is clear enough in the daytime -- if you're trying to do spy work, its not for you. Good for basic home surveillance. You can make out faces about 10 feet away. But if the point is to just have an idea of what's going on around your property, this serves the purpose.

ANYWAY, will update in a few weeks, but so far so good!

UPDATE 4/24/13: So mounting INSIDE wasn't as bright an idea once night fell -- the glass reflected so I could see NOTHING. But STILL love the product!

UPDATE 4/29/13: Mounted them outside (basically on the opposite side of the windows where they were mounted inside) and the view is unobstructed. You will definitely have to go into settings and adjust the color settings on each camera to get the highest night vision quality. With all outdoor lights out, night vision is nowhere near as clear as daytime, but its tolerable. Just make sure you have your outdoor lights on in the areas you want to watch the most.
