Best value for money!
Darrielle from tech support helped with an issue with my old DVR the same day I posted for help. I ordered a replacement system and the Setup Wizard had me back on line in a matter of moments. Can't get any easier than this. I recommend this product and company to anyone looking to put up a security camera system.
I purchased my DVR and cameras a couple of years ago, replaced the DVR earlier this year, and replaced one new camera this month (Sept). The system works very well. Darielle helped me each time to get the right units purchased and sent. Installation was very easy. I appreciate the prompt and knowledgeable service and shipments.
Good Value for your money
Very Happy with the HD cameras. Very Easy to setup.
Caught someone within a week!
We had these up for exactly 7 days when we caught two youth breaking into our car. They walked by the car parked on the street and video as so clear you could see one youth flip the handle to see if it was unlocked. Good old husband left it unlocked. They didn't even see the cameras and just walked over and got in our car. I used a flash drive to pull a section of video. Cut the length down on my computer using a free windows program. I posted it on Facebook and even in a town with over 100,000 people I had a Dad on the phone within 2 hours. The other child's parents by morning.
Install wasn't bad. I had to get wire clips from hardware store and paid a guy $40 to drill a hole in my historic home. We filled the hole with caulk. I wish that the camera heads articulated a little more.
Waiting for two kids and parents to clean out, wash and detail my car as we speak.
compact system at affordable price
Still waiting to install after receiving it a couple weeks ago but looks like it will meet my needs for ease of install.
Reviewing Defender 4 Channel Security System
Defender 4 Camera System
Reviewing the 4 cameras security system.
Everything arrived promptly at the home, all the components were well packed. The only installation information was brief, but enough to do the job of installing.
I haven't downloaded the manual yet, but will do so.
When I went to install the wires 3 of the spools were wrapped opposite to the one. I glanced at the one spool which I picked up first, this made sense to me, and all I had to do was unwrap the wire I needed. This made the job quicker and less wires all over the place.
I followed up with the other 3 spools in the similar manner, unwrapping only the wire I needed.
When I had all the wires and cameras in place I proceeded to hook up the wires at the console, this is when I found the three camera wires were reversed, and the power cord would not mate up. Needless to say I had to pull down all the work I had done and flip the wires around and re-install.
My suggestion is to have all the wires wrapped the same so no one will have the same problem I ended up with.
Another suggestion is to label the sheet you sent with the camera system, text in Male and Female by the connectors, this will make people aware that there is a difference in the connectors, which should help prevent any error.
The best suggestion I have is to have female connectors on both ends of the wire spool, and male connectors at the cameras, so no one will ever have a problem.
Image quality great until the DVR fried - 3 years
Everything was great until I needed it. I went to get a look at the guy who was trying to open all the cars on our street and couldn't play back anything. Over an hour wasted to see that the HDD was not working at all. Got it to fire a couple of times to immediately fail again. Then I installed another HDD and found out the circuitry is the problem. Bye bye DVR.
decent setup and decent cameras
I like the setup and it wasn't hard to do. The only ting I can recommend in future products is having a option for motion detention of a certain viewing area. I have a camera that covers the backyard and everytime a leaf flicks on a branch it set off the motion detection. It would be nice if I had options to change my motion detection area.
Great customer service
I have dealt with Defender for 10+ years and they have always been great. I used them when you could call and speak with a person but they still answer email quickly.
Help with hd1080p
I am very pleased with this product, but I was intending to thank Darrielle for helping me solve a problem I was having with motion recording. This person has great expertise, and patience, and I want to say thank you for solving my problem in such a timely manner.
Everything is excellent
I dealt with Suzanne and Juliet and they both provided wonderful customer service that took care of all of my concerns. The product is great as are the features and ease of use. Thanks!
Good customer support!
I’ve had my unit for about a year. Was having trouble with the iOS app. Daniela Tried several attempts to contact me by phone but I was always away when she called. Daniela Also kept me updated via email until we finally made contact with each other and she was an awesome help. Very professional and very knowledgeable about the product. Thanks Daniela!!
Tough Set-up I Agree
But, once working, this system crushes the opposition! I bought one because of the system cost-effectiveness, and its ability to scale readily so that I don't have any worries.
The short-comings become obvious. Older models use the far-superior ClearVu app than do the HD users. My documentation was entirely silent on this crucial issue. I chased bugs for a YEAR. The solution was easy and the system is still a little buggy. I like the pre-packaged software (esp surveillance_client) and the manuals, while long, are straight forward. Updates make a great idea that much better, but don't over do it (looking at YOU iOS, and MSWnOS7+).
An Excellent Product
My Defender HD 1080p was a great purchase. Installation and setup was a cinch and the picture quality is terrific.
