This system is one of the first to have a highly interactive menu that assists you as you use it. When you scroll through different menu settings, helpful information bubbles will pop up to help you. Learn what each setting means so that you can configure the system to your needs effectively. This user-friendly feature makes it easy to setup and use your DVR.

4 PROFESSIONAL GRADE, WEATHER RESISTANT CAMERAS
Four high resolution cameras, made with Sharp image sensors, provide you with a clear and consistent picture at 480 TV lines of resolution. They allow you to better distinguish facial features, which can help in the positive identification of individuals. The cameras can be used indoors and outdoors. Each one is built with professional grade aluminum housing and a sunshade to help prevent glare, deterioration and rusting.
MULTIPLE EASY BACKUP OPTIONS
With the SN301-8CH, you have several easy ways to back up your important video footage. A built-in USB port gives you more options when backing up and transferring your video footage. Connect a USB flash drive and store the files permanently on your computer or an external hard drive. You can also connect to an external CD/DVD writer and burn your footage to a disc.
ADVANCED MOTION-ACTIVATED RECORDING
You have the option to record video only when motion is detected, which will save you time and conserve hard drive space. You can even set individual cameras to detect motion while the others continuously record. Advanced motion detection settings ensure that false alarms are not triggered - the easy motion detection "mask" allows you to block out areas with constant movement, such as roads or blowing trees, so that only suspicious activity is recorded.
24/7 SCHEDULED RECORDING
You can fully customize a weekly recording schedule. Choose which days of the week and hours of the day you want to continuously record, motion record, or stop recording. Each camera can be scheduled with different settings.
CUSTOMIZE YOUR CAMERA DISPLAY
Watch an individual camera in full screen, 4 cameras in a quad screen, or an 8 channel split screen. Zoom mode allows you to enlarge a portion of the camera's view to get a closer look, and Sequence mode cycles through all camera views a preset interval times.
SEARCH BY DATE, TIME OR EVENT
Finding your recorded footage is easy. Simply choose the desired date and time range and the requested video clips will appear. Clips are also labeled by event, which makes it easy to find footage that was captured by motion detection.
ENDLESS LOCATION OPTIONS WITH 65ft OF WIRING PER CAMERA
The included 65ft camera wiring gives you flexibility in the installation of your cameras and allows you to increase each camera's range. If you require additional 65ft cable lengths, you can purchase 21007 extension cable. The single wire also conveniently carries both the power and video signals, so you are only running one wire per camera (maximum 180ft of cabling per camera is recommended).

My system was in the storage for a little bit when I got it out all the cameras turn on fine but none of the buttons work on the system or the mouse I do not have a remote
Good Unit Good Price
I've had the unit for almost 2 weeks and am very happy with the system. As advertised the set-up went smoothly - anyone can do it. The day camera is great and the night is OK although it could be improved to provide a clearer picture. The staff - Daniela, Suzanne, and Candice have been most helpful in answering questions that I had and confirming that I understand the operation of the system. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a security system and hope it continues to work as good through it's lifetime.
Priceless Safety Feature!
I bought the system after seeing how clear the video was on my Mom's system. I installed the entire system myself. Considering I usually end up breaking things labeled "assembly required," I am amazed at the durable quality and practical engineering this system was designed with. I was up and running in two hours! For me I think that every home should have one of these especially with the recent gun control laws in California where I live.
