    I love this brand!

    I have had my defender cameras for four years. I have up graded to the 16 channel dvr so that I may add more cameras to existing eight. I plan to buy three more. I love the picture quality and the ease of installation. My daughter and I put them up ourselves! They are a must have.

    Outstanding Product for the $$$

    I purchased this unit in Sept. 2015. I did a temporary install then a permanent one. I couldn't have asked for a better unit for the price. The cameras provide a good field of view and install is a breeze.

    Customer service is out of this world

    Bought the system for a new construction... Did a test run before installing the system and everything worked perfectly as advertised. Once installed... about 3 months down the road, one camera and the recorder hard drive both failed. Call Defender customer service and after performing a few test they arrange for the recorder and camera to be sent back to them for evaluation. Got everything back so quickly I was baffled. Monitoring the cameras locally was simple but for remote access via I-Phone or work PC... not easy, got a security system guy to set the links up and all was good.

    Vanessa at customer service is simply awesome, the only fact I didn't give 5 stars is because I had issues with the product... cause the personnel behind this company is worth 10 stars easy.

    Great System for the money!

    I bought this a few weeks ago. The equipment is very high quality and I was able to install the system myself. I have even added cameras from other brands that work seamlessly. Using Defender 1 Step I was able to network my DVR internally and view my cameras from any device connected to my local area network. Setting up port forwarding so that I could view my cameras remotely was not straight forward and required a lot of research online and several chat sessions with my ISP. 99% of networking issues have nothing to do with the DVR or Defender's software, you just need to do your homework and be generally familiar with networking. This is a great system and I would recommend anyone to buy it for their home security needs!

    Pro tips based on my experience:

    1. Your ethernet cable that connects your DVR to your modem can be more than 15ft, my is 55ft and works flawlessly.

    2. Your password for your DVR must be 6 digits and NUMBERS ONLY! I used letters in my initial password and was unable to use the Defender mobile app until I made my password all numbers.

    3. Your ISP is your best resource for port forwarding your router so that you can access your DVR remotely. If you are having networking problems you will be able to solve them yourself without needing to contact Defender Customer Support, you just need to take ownership and be willing to work to solve the problem.

    4. I was going insane trying to access my DVR remotely until I stumbled upon a post in a gaming forum that I needed to set my external IP in my Motorola Surfboard to 0.0.0.0 in the port forwarding rule. I had been using the actual external IP and for some reason that triggered a feedback loop that prevented me from accessing the network remotely. By setting it to 0.0.0.0 ALL MY PROBLEMS WERE SOLVED!

    5. The app works but is hindered by whatever network you are using. Some wifi networks and cell phone networks do not provide bandwidth necessary for a smooth viewing experience. It is also buggy but I trust they are constantly working to improve it.

    Gives us peace of mind.

    We ordered this product from walmart.com and it was shipped fast and was exactly as advertised. Setup was simple and product worked great immediately when we did a test run before running all cameras through attic and mounting outside. Video quality is good and in real time. The only issue we are currently having is the night vision is not working on the cameras. I am working with customer service to try to resolve this issue. I will update how customer service responds when it is fixed. I am currently waiting for a response to an email I sent.

    Great Product with outstanding technical support!!

    Installed system with no problem.Only problem I had was setting up software for remote viewing on my ipad & iphone.After messing around with it for about a hour I decided to give technical assistance a call.Phone was answered promptly and a service tech by the name of Michel had me up & running in about 10 minutes.It was as simple as changing my password to all numbers.Thanks Michel great job!!!
    Overall the cameras are excellent.For the price you can't beat it.The only problem I have is trying to set the motion sensors at the correct level.Even at its lowest setting it goes off alot.I may decide to just leave them record all the time.Also the Clearvu app to view online can be glitchy at times.For the most part it works but at times it has trouble connecting.
    Overall I'm satisfied with the system.Great value with excellent customer service(Michel)

    Wifi Killed My Wifi, got the wired version instead

    We had Christmas laser lights stolen off our front yard. We have also had an influx of punks in the neighborhood and I had been thinking about getting a system for quite some time. I did a ton of research and found the Defender product line was the best for the money. I got the WiFi system first and the cameras were great as well as easy set-up. The only problem was it killed my WiFi (TWC from 25mpbs to 1-2mpbs). So, I boxed it up and returned it and immediately ordered the wired version (Defender Sentinel Pro Widescreen 8-Channel Security DVR with 2TB HDD and 4 Surveillance 800TVL Cameras). It was a easy set-up and the cameras work well with very clear images during the day. Night vision can be grainy because of street lighting in the distance but it still works for what is needed. I did hang one camera where I get a little halo effect at night (IR) but it works for what I need. I will be getting more cameras to complete the 8 channels and I should have ordered them as a package (hindsight!). I will be playing around with getting the system online so I can view from anywhere. I did call customer service with a question regarding the wire extensions and they were very helpful. I am hoping this system lasts a long long time. One caution: the dome cameras have little tiny clear rubber stoppers that keep the camera stable. These are easily dislodged and lost.
