Extremely Easy to Set Up and Use
This Defender system functions just like a computer, with a mouse for pointing and clicking and an intuitive icon-based menu that provides prompts and coaching to assist you in navigating the system. It’s even so simple to use it will begin recording as soon as it’s plugged in.
View Your Camera Footage From Anywhere In The World
Whether monitoring your business or home, view your footage live online, anytime and anywhere with PC or Mac. You can also view footage on almost any smartphone, including iPhone, BlackBerry, Android, Windows Mobile, or Symbian, as well as on your iPad and most major tablets.
Instant Email Alerts If Activity Detected
Instantly know if suspicious activity is happening on your property. This Defender system is designed to send you an email alert, complete with photo, if any motion is detected on your property or if any of your cameras experience video loss.
Crisp and Detailed Video You Can Rely On
Your security system is only worthwhile if you can actually see the person stealing from you. Defender cameras are equipped with 480 TV lines of resolution and the DVR records in D1 resolution, which is the equivalent of 704 x 480 pixels or DVD quality. The resulting clear, crisp and accurate video feed will help put the criminal away.
Two Years’ Worth of Footage Storage – and More If You Need It
The included 500GB hard drive allows continuous monitoring and recording of over two years’ worth of footage! Your DVR sends an alert when your memory space is full so that you can choose to overwrite old video or stop the unit from recording. The built-in USB port gives you the option of backing up and transferring your video footage with a USB flash drive or external USB hard drive. And if you need to expand your storage even further, you can choose to record only when motion is detected. This DVR uses H.264 compression which maximizes recording time, transfers data more efficiently over the internet and you’ll use 50% less storage space than traditional compressions - MPEG4, MJPEG - while still benefitting from high-quality imagery.
When Everyone Else is Asleep, Our Cameras Are Watching Closely
The things that go bump in the night are sometimes a thief making off with your big-screen TV. Defender cameras are equipped with night vision that automatically activates. Twenty-four infrared ClearVu LEDs provide crisp and detailed night imagery as you monitor from up to 75ft away, even in complete darkness. So thieves may think they’re lurking in the dark but you can rest assured Defender will see them.
See More with 8 Cameras
Thieves don’t limit themselves to just a few rooms. Neither should your security system. Monitor up to 8 areas with this 8CH Defender DVR kit. By adding all included cameras you’ll be able to keep an eye on your entire property, enjoying even greater peace of mind.

Wish I had gone with a different system
I bought this system due to its great value, or the value of what I thought that I was getting. It is nearly impossible to get this thing to work right. Customer service isn't much help either. Save your money and go somewhere else.
I bought this 9 months ago and it has been great. It has easy menus and let's you know what's going on outside 24/7. The email notifications are helpful and watching online with my smartphone is convenient. Only negative is that the power connections are loose so you have to wrap tape on them to hold them. I also had two of the eight cameras stop working but I'm under warranty so it's all good.
Good cable camera system for the money
This is a good camera system for someone worried about home security on a budget. The camera system and DVR was very easy to set up and for the most part plug-in then start recording. The DVR interface is user friendly enough for someone with basic computer skills could use.
- Day time picture is better then I expected. Its about the same as they show in the product description.
- Night time picture is a whole other story..... Now I have two cameras mounted about 30ft from the ground over looking my back yard and unless I did something wrong, I can barely make out the difference between my above-ground swimming pool and the actual ground. Now I have another camera just above my back door and I get about 10ft of decent visibility at night but still not enough to make a face or a least like to picture in the product description.
For the most part, I am very satisfied with this camera system and works perfect for what I needed it for. I also wish I opted for the 600 TVL cameras.
Great security system
I upgraded from a 4 camera system to a 8 camera system to cover more areas and this is working great. Thank you!
