RippedOff 1 Disappointing
I've had this for a little over a year now, and it seemed pretty good at first. But then I started noticing how delayed the picture was when comparing the traffic driving by, or someone walking up to the door. I've also seen much better 480 pictures than this, and it absolutely loves to randomly drop the signal and say the camera is "out of range". I wasn't aware that 15 feet would be outside of it's parameters, or I probably would have gone with a different system. Overall, it would make a pretty good spy toy for a 9 year old, but as for the adult world and it's intended purpose, not even close to worth what I paid for it.
Hello Dennis, and thank you for taking the time to review your Defender Phoenix wireless security system. We are sorry to hear about your disappointment with the system. The signal dropping and the "out of range" message can be fixed by upgrading the firmware. You can do this upgrade by searching "Phoenix firmware" in the Support Center of our website (www.defender-usa.com.) Our Customer Support Team can be reached at 1-866-946-7828 and would gladly assist you if needed. Thank you again for your review as your feedback is important to us.
1Eagle1 4 Perfect camera units for my needs!
I recently purchased the PhoenixM2 security system. Immediately bought 2 additional cameras for the, "4 camera monitor" included with the first 2 cameras. These cameras cover all the areas required for my home. I'm getting alert notices at about a 40 to 60 foot range. Signal strength (at my max) is about 75 feet, able to receive through several buildings with a tin roof. What I find so nice about these units is being able to move the monitor to wherever I station myself, (ie. dining room, workshop, bedroom, etc.). No need to connect wifi, or use other devices that are more likely being used for other purposes. The 7 inch screen seems to be enough for viewing all 4 cameras. Took one star away as these cameras are very sensitive to motion alerts, (as well as positioning line of site), causing differences in false/positive alerts. Understandably, I am very close to a busy street which makes it almost impossible to traffic passing by, triggering an alert. Also the mounting screws suck! (I got much better screws at the local hardware store!). Overall, I am very happy with this purchase, and feel they are worth the price.
Hello Kevin Guilbert, and thank you for taking the time to review your Defender Phoenix wireless security system! We are so glad to hear you are happy with the system and its various features. Please reach out to our Customer Support Team via phone or chat for more information on how to change the motion sensitivity settings.

Lucky62 5 Amazing Picture
I’ve had this system for about a year now. Recently added another camera and monitor, got both for cheaper than one camera. Dogs growl I go check the cameras first (the dogs go to the cameras first too) they are great, cameras and dogs!.. Set up was easy. I have one camera approximately 70 feet from the house on my shop and the monitor picked it up right away, they are kind of in site of each other. Great system. Let me know if you have these cameras on sale soon. Thanks. Have recommended them to several people.
Thanks for writing a review Tracy. We are happy to see that the PhoenixM2 is working great for your needs. If you should require support please contact us by phone, email or live chat! Martin R. | Defender Customer Experience Expert
Geobiz 5 Great picture in dimly lit barn
This is second camera we’ve purchased. First we bought the complete system, now adding more cameras. Setup in barn about 75 yards from house. No internet or cell phone available so this is perfect. Granddaughter has the monitor in her house and watched a lamb delivery in a snowstorm.
Hello George, thanks for writing a review. We are always happy to hear how different people use our systems. Martin R. | Defender Customer Experience Expert
LETZ ROK 5 Awesome Features!
I bought this as an add on for my wired system because I needed the ease of moving the camera around and especially the sound feature. The sensitivity setting actually turns the monitor on for a few seconds if you don't want to hear beeping at night. The green light is annoying though so I put tape over it. Easy to find and retrieve files. Power outage stops recording...does not turn back on. Great portability. Buttons area little hard to read and wish it was more weather proof to put it further out in the yard...could mount it inside a bird house but sound may be compromised. This camera could also be used for someone that's confined to bed and just wants to hear and watch birds outside... overall I'm very happy with this product.
Hello Marilyn Lonsbury. Thank you for taking the time to review the Phoenix security system. We are glad to hear you are overall happy with the system and its features. If you require any further assistance, please reach out to Defender via e-mail, phone or chat.
exyukon 4 Good system for the price.
This is finally the fourth camera for my system, I now have coverage on all four sides of my house. I found them very easy to install, and work even 100 ft. from the control unit,. Of course, they could have a little better range and sharpness, but for the price they make me feel a little more comfortable. At first we found the set-up very confusing (84 yrs old) but a very helpful lady on the phone set us straight. Now all we have to do is keep changing the card when full, and keep brushing the spider webs off the lenses.
I have wondered if a very good quality sim card might improve the image.Just a thought,

Paul21 5 Peace of mind
There was an attempted break in of my neighbors house. Bought the system the following week. It was really easy to install. Gives us some peace of mind that if anyone tries anything we’ll have video to prove it.
elpawm 5 Easy set up
I just bought another camera to add to my system, It was easy to set up and pair with my monitor.
MusicFamily 5 Love our Defender
We purchased our Defender several years ago and just recently purchased two more cameras for additional views. It gives us peace of mind to see who is coming onto our property when we are here and when we're not. It recently caught a box delivery truck hit our roof while backing up.
Cody 4 Very Easy Installation
We are using this to monitor our pond for herons. Extremely easy ro setup. Picture is a bit grainy but OK for our purpose
