As of today, I haven't installed the cameras because I've been out of town working for several months at a time. My wife and I are excited about installing the cameras and having the system running. With all the good reviews about your product, that is why we purchased it and must say that we are happy to be part of the Defender family!! I
I bought a camera package in December and am very happy with it this far. Picture quality is nice, and setup was a breeze. I like the fact you can get email notifications when cameras detect motion, however I'm not sure if sending an email to 2 different addresses is possible, as my wife and I would both like to receive these notifications. Overall great product!
I bought the Defender HD 1080p 8ch with 8 bullet cameras about three weeks ago. Initially set it up on a table in my basement to test it (I had problems with a previous purchase from a Chinese manufacturer and wanted to make sure it worked before running all of the wires). Image resolution is excellent. Setup was easy, although having 20 years experience in electronics and 17 years in I.T. certainly helped. I did speak to their tech support before purchase to get some technical questions answered. The gentleman I spoke with was very familiar with the product and answered all my questions promptly (he is also a native English speaker based in North America, a rarity in tech support these days), so I am sure those without my expertise will be able to configure remote network access with their help. I have now installed three of the 8 cameras (weather up here in northern Illinois during February is not conducive to outside work) and the rest will be installed when it gets warm enough to do it. The cameras are working great and motion detection and recording is also working well. The system allows you to set motion detection to only specified areas so you do not record every time a tree or bush moves in the wind or a car goes by on the street. All in all, I am quite satisfied with the system and would recommend it to anyone looking for a quality camera surveillance system.
I bought this for my home a couple of weeks ago. Love the picture quality and the ability to access via smartphone. Installation was easy and it was up and running within a matter of minutes. Would definitely recommend!!
I bought this package to replace an older system that the DVR had quit working on. The picture with my old cameras hooked to it was good but once I replaced the old 800tvl cameras with these HD ones the picture was Great, Very clear. Very satisfied with me new system.
A quality image and easy set up. good factures for the price
I just bought this system and learned a lot. you can not have the camera inside a window and try to view outside. Must install outside to get the best out of the system, once moved was excellent. To down load the manuals you will find some trouble as it will reference a page but no page numbers show on the printed page, lot of counting then I decided to number the pages incase i dropped them. Getting to run cameras on my cell was easy and to my computor is great, would be better if they would allow Google Crome as an operating system but Internet explorer was good. Support online is good and assistance was great.
Woud recommend this system to anyone but would recommend the 4 camera system so you can expand without having to buy 2 more cameras.
Got this for Christmas 16'. Due to weather didn't get to install fully. I did test all cameras and functions within a few days to make sure there were no returns/ exchange needed. I did install a 1080p camera at my front door outside within a few weeks, and integrated 3 indoor cameras from a old system. 2 were analog and one high def with audio (front inside of house, back inside door, and master bed). They all worked with the system perfect with no issue. The picture on the included 1080p camera both day and night is great at close distance for detail, and good at a longer distance for visibility, but not for details. You will get the general idea but will not be able to make out faces or plates even if you zoom in. The motion alert and camera settings take a little time to learn but work as they should once you get them correct. I wish there were more instructions on how to use it and the features within but I read online you can find them online or call there tech support, just haven't had the time. Installation will take some thinking and planing but a DIY type of person should not have a problem once they have a idea of how to run the wires and where they want there cameras. I have since installed a back yard camera after a little over month of of just having the 1 1080 and the 3 analog. All in all I am very happy with the system and look forward to getting all the cameras up and running and mixing them with my old analog ones. I will update this review if I feel there is something helpful I come across.
Had 2 friends with this system and both love it...so I had some help. Set up is not hard but I have some positioning issues with my house set-up. Getting the program to work smoothly on my computer is still a pain a the app works well on smart phone but have to go through several steps each time on computer/internet.
Installed a month ago and can say it's the best system I ever owned. Picture is excellent, setup is simple and customer service is fantastic. Thanks for a great product!!
I purchased the HD1T8B8 (8 Camera System) the day after Thanksgiving 2016 and the system was here in about 4-5 days.The first thing I did was to make sure the Camera's and DVR were working and they were spot on.The camera's are plastic and light weight but appear to be built good. It finally got warm enough a couple of days in Dec. and Jan. to start installing it. The picture quality is extremely great both day and night vision and the install was very easy with only a couple of Hiccups. The sales staff is very pleasant to deal with and repeats everything about your order before they hangup. Had a question and emailed it to Defender one afternoon and they called the next morning so I'll give the tech dept a 10. If you plan on purchasing a system I don't think you could go wrong with this system for the $$$$$$. I would suggest to you that you pre- plan where it will be installed since you only get 60ft., however you can purchase 100ft lengths at a very good price. In closing I just want to let you know that I'm not affiliated in any way with defender just a retired cop who's house got burglarized and the dirt bags took all of my wife's jewelry after 41 yrs of marriage and all of my guns oh got to mention all the whiskey
The installation of the cameras and set up of the DVR were extremely easy. The app for my phone is great! When ordering Customer Service was very helpful.
Bought this large system thinking we would need only 10 cams, but wanted extra to expand later or if a cam ever failed. Let me tell you, We installed 14! Of course after the fact we found other places to get even better views of things we never planned on, after seeing the picture quality and the night vision and the features of the DVR. TIP: Don't forget inside the garage. That way there, when you leave the house, and your wife asks, 25 miles down the road, did you close the garage doors? You can look at it on your phone within seconds! So COOL!!!!! Install was a breeze, but a lot of labor running cables and mounting cams and the dvr. Buy longer cables. You'll need them. 60 ft does not go far. And if your buying a large kit, you obviously have a large home. (Your not going to have all the cameras within 60 ft. Maybe a small cape cod?) But then you won't be buying 16 cams. The hardest part? Running cable and hiding them and using ladders. I am very handy and very proficient with computer except that networking stuff and I dreaded that part especially when I downloaded the manuals to read first for tips. They cant instruct you on how to install as every house and preference are different but the system is completely color coded on how to connect together. You have to plan how to set it up and be able to make all the connections. Plan it!!!!!!!!! You don't need access to dvr unless you need to access to usb, which I am sure would be rare and the mouse if your viewing on computer. Otherwise hide the whole thing and centrally locate to get cables to it. Night vision is incredible!! Like daylight in most instances. 2 car Garage cam looks like 2 watt bulbs are on in complete darkness! Outside there is some loss but hardly any for up to and past 130' in some instances! It all depends on what ambient lighting there is. In suburban neighbor hoods with street lights and pt is excellent and great distances are improved. Pitch black, like out on a farm or wilderness 100' is the norm and at a level equal to twilight or even better. Back to the networking part. Forget it!!!!! That was by far the easiest of the whole thing. OMG! Literally 5 minutes if that. It detects everything in one step and gives you one of those smartphone barcodes. The app on phone automatically knows to turn scanner on, on phone and you aim phone at your computer screen and viola! It's freaking done! Everything! Smartphone, computer, their website, Everything!!! No ports, no mac addresses, no IP addresses, no gaining access to router. NOTHING!!!!! Scan barcode and it works!
P.S software and operation is great. You can even zoom while watching cams!
CONS: Cameras seem cheap. All plastic. Very light. But who cares, they work excellent. That's the way they make some things affordable nowadays. My only concern? They are white. My house is white. Are they going to yellow like some white plastics do? Are they going to dry up and crack and crumble like some plastics do? Time will tell. They don't tell this in description.
Another problem: on website, they state "True Weather Resistant". When reading manual, they state not to place in way of rain or snow. I know the definition of resistant, ie: don't flood and don't bury in snow. It is only resistant, which in my book means a little rain or snow won't hurt. So what is it? Whats the use of having cameras outside as you can't control which way rain or snow blows?
That's about it. I'm happy as a pig in s...! Way to cool!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
P.S. TO COMPANY: If your going to sell a kit for 800.00-$1000.00 and it has a lot of cams, obviously to cover more territory, why not include half the cables of 120' and the other half at 60" instead of making the customer purchase more at $40.00 a pop?
This was my first camera system purchase ,after reading a lot of reviews, I felt Defender had the best reviews,I purchased the 4 bullet 4 dome camera system,ran all the wires myself . After everything was hooked up I powered on dvr and was up and running in about 10 minutes , app also connected with ease. I like that I can check on my home while I'm at work or away for the day.
