I bought this to replace my existing Defender system, I wanted to upgrade to the HD system, no regrets here, video is crystal clear!!!
I bought the Defender HD 1080P 8CH with 4 Bullet Camera to monitor the exterior of my house. I installed the system myself, which was hard except for crawling through the attic. Setup was easy. The wires were plenty long enough. The software is easy to use and has a variety of recording options, including motion sensing. I have had the system for 3 weeks and it working great. I hope that it last many years. I will likely add more cameras over time, which is nice that it is expandable.
I bought this system. Problems with items sent. I had to have my cables altered at an custom cable shop. They wouldn't reimburse my expenses. Dvr continues to have errors. I've owned many systems both personal and business. This is the worst.
We just replaced our older system with the new 1080p HD. The quality is so much better, the cameras was easy to setup and setup of the DVR was so simple and easy. Everything was included for the setup. Candice was a terrific in the Sales Dept and easy to work with. Brian and their technical support team is one of the best when needing help with the Defender Product in our book. Thanks again Candice, Brian and Defender.
The camera system works great, very easy to setup. Can easily be handled as DIY. and the customer service representatives are very informative and really help if needed.Just call and they will answer all your questions. Candace and Donna thank you for the follow up also. Will buy from them again if needed on the future.
Setup was easy. I view on my 36 inch tv at the cabin. I can even blow up photo and read license plates very easy. Night vision is great. So far, so good. I've only had it running for a few days. Very pleased so far.
EASY SETUP AND OPERATION IS GREAT. I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT.
Just purchased this system. Very easy to set up. Had it installed in about 3 hours. Highly recommend it!
Spoke to Candace before purchasing. She was very helpful in determining which system to purchase.
This is my first purchase of a camera security system and I bought the Defender HD1T8D4 online from BestBuy on 11/28/16 and received it within 4 days.
I too was skeptical at how good the online reviews were on the Defender website, but I must admit, I’ve been pleased so far. I tested the system in a single room prior to fishing cable through walls, floors and ceilings (a given for any brand of wired security system). Over the next few months, I will be running the cables. Physically hooking up the connections to the DVR unit was easy. One needs some degree of computer familiarity to understand the software, but by reading through the well-organized user manual and playing around with the settings, it starts to become intuitive. I feel the software is as simple as can be considering all the associated numerous options, features and settings. Their customer/technical service is supreme – submission of an online question triggers a case number email confirmation. The main reason I selected the Defender system was because of all the positive reviews of their customer/technical support and so far, this has been substantiated.
I replaced my older uni with this HD one and the quality is amazing. I would recommed getting your system its own monitor. The lag over the internet really makes the picture quality poor if you are streaming it online.
Purchased for viewing of my home while on travel approx. 950 miles away. Experienced very very slow play back on laptop and wasn't able to view HD at all while in play back. IPhone is useless for play back while traveling . I was however able to view the live streaming with no problems on both laptop and IPhone. There is an alarm or motion alert when transitioning from day to night vision and vise verse. Instructions state not to record and also use motion detecting at same time however I found no problems with doing so. While sitting approx. 12ft from DVR in my home everything works correctly and at an acceptable speed. The temperature here has fallen to 7 degrees at night and the outside camera works fine but the motion detecting is reduced or delayed greatly. Had problems setting up the DVR using Windows 10.
I have had system since first part of December and just got 4 of my 8 cameras install this week. Has lots of features that I'm still trying to figure out.
Candice was great to deal with in customer service .....the Defender HD is a beautiful system .
I bought this system three weeks ago. easy to set up good quality. Just perfect for the job
