I’ve been looking for quite a while to put in the surveillance system at my cabin in the woods. The defender 2 k Wireless security system is a perfect fit for what I was looking for it has three cameras which is perfect for what I needed The resolution of the cameras is absolutely fantastic. It was also a breeze the set up.
Great security system!
This security system really helps put my mind to ease! I order a lot of packages online and you never know if you can trust people to not steal things off your doorstep! So I love having security cameras now to watch over my deliveries! It’s also nice to know that I would have a video if anyone who tried to break into my house. You can never be too careful these days! This system was pretty easy to install and even easier to get it all set up and ready to go! The picture is really clear and high def. I love it!
Robust Security Camera Platform
This expandable security camera platform is robust with it's high-resolution cameras that can film in better-than-HD quality. HD is 1920x1080 while these cameras perform at 2688x1520, meaning that zooming into the footage is possible and maintains higher quality since the filming is done at a higher resolution. Another benefit is that the cameras transmit wirelessly back to the base station. As long as you have sufficient coverage you're in good shape. You also have the benefit of adding additional cameras if you'd like to expand your system later. The downside of this system is that the cameras require a power outlet. This can prove to be cumbersome, especially in older homes. Battery powered cameras would allow for a more ubiquitous use. Overall, this is a solid system with generous recording abilities on a 1TB hard drive with remote viewing.
Crisp Clear Pictures
I bought this system to replace an older Lorex system that quit working. After a lot of research, this seemed to be the best fit for my home. The pictures are crystal clear and sharp. The system was fairly straightforward and took a few hours (including camera installation). The Smart Signal app seems ok, no problems so far. The only issue I am having is getting the “motion detection “ recording to work properly and send alerts to the phone app. Darrielle has been helpful answering my technical issues. I am 90% satisfied with this system, the other 10% will come once I get the motion detection working as it should. The one criticism I have is how loud the NVR is, but this wouldn’t hinder me from recommending this system.
Good news, but also bad news
I was very happy with the product quality, features and image clarity. However, I was not able to use this product because the transmission ranges was limited. My furthest camera was about 75 feet from the receiver NVR. In addition, it was outside and needed to pass through walls. Reception was not adequate and I had to return the product. Other products are available on the market that use the system cameras as repeaters for the distance camera. I chose a competitor system that had longer range and had the repeater feature.
Works but can be better
Setting up the system was very laborious. The mobile app did not even work on my Samsung Galaxy phone. Every time I started it, it would crash. I was getting ready to give up when I decided to try my tablet (Samsung Tab A) and it worked. However, the second camera kept going offline intermittently. The app itself is not intuitive but the hardware is good quality. I've seen less troublesome systems.
Defender 2K (4MP) Wireless 4CH 1TB Security System
These cameras are amazing. I've been wanting to install some sort of security camera on the outside of my house for years. These were exactly what I had in mind. What great peace they bring, just knowing they're there adds so much security. I like that I can monitor what's happening from my phone. The image quality is insane, such a clear picture. The view range is out of this world, I couldn't believe how much just one camera can pick up. Now my son and my furkid are safe thanks to Defender 2K (4MP) Wireless 4CH 1TB Security System with 3 Cameras. I love that they are made to hold up in the elements. I'm excited that I have these and look forward to many years with added security.
Defender 2K 4ch 1TB Is a excellent buy
I got the Defender 2K (4mp) wireless 4 ch 1TB Security System with 3 cameras and I installed it and couldn't believe the Quality.It was way beyond my expectations.If you buy this system you won't be dissapointed.Camera quality is very good day or night.It has also has several different functions and option including motion sensors.
works as advertised
have had the system for a couple of weeks, easy to install, great video. Still working on some of the features, would be great if it worked with Wifi.. Well worth the money.
High Quality Complete System
I replaced my old camera system at my house with this. Super easy to setup and get running. The video is really crisp and clear. Really nice to be able to pull everything up on your devices as well
Great Product - Questionable UX
From a quality perspective, this has been a great product so far - I'm very impressed. I really like the DVR concept, and having videos held on-site. However, this review had to lose a star because the software UX looks like it was designed for a professional installer. There are acronyms with no definitions and a whole bunch of settings with labels that mean nothing to me. Defender, I strongly recommend that you completely re-work the setup interface so that it works for a first-timer as well as a professional installer. The second star was lost because of the camera power connector. I had a similar system in the past that used Power Over Ethernet (POE). With my other cameras, it was so convenient to use custom length ethernet cables as my power cords. To get the Defender system completely set up, I feel constrained by the availability of a power outlet and the length of the cord.
I received this as a free sample to try but my opinions are 100% my own. Setup for this product was relatively easy and has a great picture. The ability to add two additional cameras is a definate plus. The only issue with this system is it is advertised as a wireless camera system, which is partially true, the camera sends the signal to the DVR wirelessly, BUT each camera must be in range of a power supply to make it work. So the mounting and location positions are limited by that. All in all its a great system, just wish the cameras had a batttery pack or replaceable batteries to make it a complete wireless system.
Great video quality
I didn’t install myself despite previous reviews said it was a no brainer, but I had an electrician do it to be safe. I have some Nest Cameras indoors and the Nest doorbell and what I don’t like is there is a cost for monitoring and recording on the Nest system. I really like the Defender system because of the video quality is better than the Nest and the fact I don’t need to pay extra to record bc I have 1TB of storage. The night vision quality is also very good. Very happy with this product so far.
Clear and vivid video
Defender-2k-4mp-wireless-4-channel-1tb-security-system-2-cam was fairly easy to install. I downloaded the app and set up my free account before I got started with installing. The directions manual was easy to read and follow. Everything you need to install the cameras is included. I attached the wide angel cameras near the front porch and garage area by drilling the holes and installing the wires. I did have to purchase a drill bit to penetrate brick as I didn't have one.
I like the fact I have the choice to watch live or view the recorded footage, The best part for me is that I recieve motion alerts so I can see who is on my property while we are away from home. I'm really impressed with how vivid and clear the pictures and video is especially with the night vision.
