    The system work great day and night A very good value. Very easy to set up. Talking to Sarah was very helpful. Purchase March 2016. The Defender replace my old system. I made a very wise purchase.

    Cecil A. February 17, 2016

    We originally went with the wireless, but we had problems getting the cameras to hook up with the system. We decided to go with the wired system, if you can handle going up into your attic, the system was easy to set up.

    Norsbes January 31, 2016

    I'm pleased with the product. Easy to install and picture is good for the cost. I had an issue with a camera and cable, Defender made everything right.

    Gary January 27, 2016

    Love this product. Had it up and running in less than 4 hours. Most time was running camera wires. Would, and already have, recommended to a friend. Wish it had more detail on how to link it to computer and smart phone. The instructions on the disc expects a lot from the person trying to syn to smartphone.

    johnboy November 30, 2015

    I just bought the system last week.the only problem is that I have with it is ive got one camera will not light up at night but I would recommend this system

    Bobocephus November 30, 2015

    I bought this product and it was shipped with no issues or problems. One of the camera wires was cut upon delivery but Customer servicE was easy to work with. I am extremely happy with the product. Very easy to install and easy to connect via my smartphone. I was disappointed at the lack of a "real" owners manual as I had to download a digital one from the website. Night vision is clear and the motion detection is sensitive. Great product. I would buy another one!

    smitty November 30, 2015

    this is the second unit I purchased I've had some real loser Samsung- swain - & so on this is a good investment

    jdb101366 November 30, 2015

    put 4 cameras up outside my home and they work perfectly. great night vision even though in black and white

    DTPh November 30, 2015

    I bought this product a month ago. The installation was very easy. Everything is working fine until now

    Andrew A Picture November 30, 2015

    Being IT, I came up with a lot of features in my mind I wanted. The software that runs the DVR & cameras is outstanding. Tying into this unit over the internet, through IE is also very cool. So is the phone APP.

    cliffynosleep November 30, 2015

    Just arrived this morning and everything worked right out of the box except the remote control. Even this is probably operator error.

    TPSauto November 30, 2015

    The system works for the money. It's nothing fantastic but probably hard to beat in the price bracket. I had two cameras fail during the winter, sent them in and two weeks later had two new ones. Tech support is a little slow but there.

    AndyH November 30, 2015

    It's astounding how far the technology has come during the past few years. This system is light years ahead of the old X10 system I had years ago. The picture quality is great, even in total darkness. Installation was no problem (except for the hot attic). The software is pretty straight forward. The biggest challenge is getting it set up for viewing over your local network and the internet. You can probably count on a call to tech support. Sean solved my problems quickly and easily. It now works flawlessly. I can view my cameras from any computer, tablet, or smart phone. I highly recommend this system.

    Joe Jr November 30, 2015

    I bought the pro defender with 8 cameras and liked it so well I bought the same unit again with 4 cameras for my work shop.Very Happy

    Very happy November 30, 2015

    For the price, this systems performance is far superior to anything I can find in the local big box stores. Since it was purchased and installed only 5 months ago, it has already recorded a break and enter next door, and caught a regular high speed driver in the back lane. All illegal dumping has stopped.
    One camera failed, and was promptly replaced with a minimum of effort on my behalf.
    Because of its performance I will be adding more cameras in the future.
