    5 Easy-Set Up, Excellent Picture Quality, App is Ok

    I purchased this system from Best Buy last month. Did a fair amount of research and this is the best DIY system I could find. When the system arrived, I synced and tested all the cameras to ensure they were working properly and downloaded the app. They make it VERY easy to scan the QR code on the camera in order to connect it to the app. The app does look like it's from 1999 and could use an overhaul, but does show the cameras in great quality and depiction. Next step was installation. Easy to mount and install - you do have to drill through the walls on the outside of your house if you are mounting them. Took about 5 hours to install the whole system. Hardest part is drilling the holes to run the power cord though. Once that's completed, just mount the cameras where you want them - I viewed the App as I was mounting to ensure it captures the areas I wanted. Then you are finished! Fairly straight forward and easy process. If you need an electrician to do the installation for you, will prob run about $150 per camera to install. All in, still much cheaper than paying $30 some a month for professional monitoring and having a contract to deal with. Very pleased with the system thus far! Just work on the App!

    4 good system for the price

    its a quick and easy install. the app seems a little underwhelming and has troubles at times connecting with the cameras. the NVR connected to a monitor is fairly decent. good quality images.

    4 sturdy cameras

    I like all the features that come with this system. It alerts when there is motion, you can hook up a monitor to the nvr to view the 4 cameras. Cameras are ip67 rated so they will stand up to the weather in Florida. Lots of additional wire for plugging into an outlet. The manual helps so be ready to have your computer near by the nvr and monitor so that you can understand the various functions. The only cons to these are 1-the smart signal app really doesn't quite sync with the nvr settings. Example, I wanted to avoid some trees that are moving with the wind. On the nvr screen, I blocked that area out. However on the smart signal app, the area is not blocked out. Secondly, with wireless wifi is weak at times since the cameras are outside and my router is inside but that is no fault of Defender. It is weak because it's wireless. Thanks.

    4 Easy installation, great price, nice quality.

    This is my second system I ordered from Defender. I very much like the fact that my cameras store the content locally and the Cameras are wireless. I upgraded from an early version to the 2k wireless version. The camera quality is a huge upgrade and very nice. I like the fact I can get the output on my mobile phone. I am working on getting it setup on my home computer as well.

    2 Not user friendly but great video clarity

    I bought this package 3 months ago, and it is not the system I expected based on posted reviews. Setting up the camera and synchronization was a drawn out painful process where I had to eventually turn to direct help from contact us.... the video tutoring was simplistic for what is not so easy. 3/4 cameras work outside well but one camera won’t work when it’s more than 5 feet from the base station. The night vision is good to 60 feet, not 100 feet as advertised. I’m still struggling to get snapshot pictures saved and synchronized. I have the system sensitivity set to the lowest but I still get bugs setting the alarm off. I’m sad this is the unit I decided to purchase.

    4 Cameras are Great, app needs work

    I just hooked up and installed 3 of the 4 cameras in less then two hours and had the app set up too. Camera pictures are very nice but they do seem to disconnect from the app often. The App will time out fairly quickly even when sitting next to the wifi router. Trouble with getting settings to save in the app. I will try that in the hard drive next. The app definitely needs some work but over all I give it a 4 rating. This is my second Defender USA camera system.

    No Happy September-29, 2019 Ontario, Canada
    1 Disappointed

    I purchased this system from Bestbuy and was very disappointed with the results. After numerous attempts, I could not get one of the cameras to work properly. Although all the cameras worked when I tested them, as soon as I moved one of them about 35 feet from the receiver, the camera would not pair up again. It seems to have an issue with a 1/2" thick Aspenite wall. The camera will work on the other side, but as soon as I move it to the outside of the wall, the camera will not reconnect. In total it is passing thru a regular insulated house wall and the uninsulated garage wall. I can understand there is some signal loss when encountering obstructions, but that seems a bit much.
