      "This is a typical system which is a bit outdated in terms of memory storage limitations and general design. If you only need a fifteen day limit for video storage, then this will work for you. If you depend upon a longer period of recording than fifteen days, then you are out of luck. This system simply would not work for my situation."

The smartphone feature lets me check in wherever i am in the world which is very reassuring since i travel a lot and my wife and kids are home without me. The 500gb drive is big enough to hold enough video that we dont need to do constant monitoring."

      "This is a great solution if you want an effective security camera. Benefits are that you can use it inside and outside. It can work in the dark. There is a speaker so if you see an intruder, or a stranger, you are able to communicate. There is also a siren which other security cameras do not have."

      "The Night Owl - 8-Channel, 4-Camera Indoor/Outdoor is a good security system. However, I feel it should have some additional features, such as some other systems do. Such as being able to answer the door remotely from my smartphone and/or being able to view my security cameras remotely. Either way, I still feel it's a good system with a great price, considering it includes a DVR"

      "Most commentators like the system with about 75% positive reviews. The DVR, small white box, attaches to your router and to a separate (not included) monitor and the included mouse. It also included a short ethernet cable that goes to your router . There are a lot of providers and choices in this space including Netgear Arlo, I smart , Nest cam and others. The four cables (make sure you use the correct ends, they look similar but are different) attach both to the DVR and to the power supply that then plugs into an outlet. The four cables then go through a hole in the wall to the outside and get attached to the four cameras. The cables are standard and these are lightweight and pretty cheap. The part that attaches to the DVR is a pain to attach. Depending on your setup, you may need to purchase longer, thicker, better made ones. The setup is much easier than the Q-see system which is positively ridiculous and needed the help of a Q-see tech on the phone. Here, you download the company's app and hold up a code on your phone to a camera and now that camera shows up on your phone. That was nice. The other cameras just 'popped up' on the phone app. That was nice too. Things seemed to take awhile. I thought it wasn't working but then it popped up. I don't remember all the setup steps but I did think it was pretty easy."

I guess I get what I pay for you. I got it for about 20 bucks while it was on sale. Also, the quality was abysmal, so it kinda defeats the purpose of owning it anyways."

      "I got this to secure the perimeter of my property. I'm a prepper and I know when the collapse comes everyone will be trying to get into my stores. Even now the neighbors are scouting around. They say I'm crazy(I can hear it through the the video). my only issue is the fact that it is on the grid. most likely the government can hack into this as well. I'm trying to build a firewall around to secure it from government forces."

      "The foscam hd 1080p outdoor wifi security camera has a lot going for it. Its HD wireless and allegedly designed to run outdoors. However any sort of inclement weather will render the camera near useless. For those that will use it outside look elsewhere."

      "The camera itself is okay, but you have to use your phone to use it. They want access to your contacts and I don't see any reason for that. Would recommend people avoid this."

      "One of the best weatherproof security cameras I've had. The video quality is amazing, and the setup is as easy as it gets."
