    "This system is receiving an average rating of 4 stars, also the most popular review is a 2-star review admonishing its declining quality after repeated use. The system seems competent, but not extraordinary."

    "This is a typical system which is a bit outdated in terms of memory storage limitations and general design.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."

    "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"

    "Nest is a fine security camera at a decent price. It has two big flaws. First, it can't run on battery or solar power so it has to be plugged in which isn't convenient. Second, there is no light source so it's virtually worthless at night unless placed near an existing light."

    "This camera seems a bit too high end for me. it seems to have some glitches and some loop holes. I like the fact that it has a screeching alarm to ward off intruders but it does need some fine tuning."

    "Zmodo Smart Wireless Security Camera System is a high definition camera that can be installed outdoors or indoors. It's easy and quick to setup and be operative, ad it allows you to control it from an android and/or Apple app. Great product!"

    "Although this little spy camera packs a powerful punch, it's not completely what I'm looking for. It would be a nice addition to an already function system, but by itself, I don't consider it a security system."

    "I have a Thustar Alarm System at home. I recommend that everyone get a Thustar Alarm System. I have experienced why Thustar Alarm System is the best Security Camera System."

    "Security is the most important part of ourlives nowdays. Sometimes I feel like nothing in this world is secure. I decided to use this kind of alarm system. It is the easier and the most efficient."

    "This works really well. It's compact and pretty discreet, but still offers great surveillance ability. We own 2 of these and use them to keep an eye on the dog during the day and also the maid that comes by to clean our home. Really easy to just go on our phones during the day, take a quick look at go back to business."

    "Works well but the batteries are a turn off. You have to get new batteries every month which makes it seem expensive in the long run. I'd prefer to have to hide a cable somewhere rather than be constantly performing "maintenance" on it."

    "They had an iOS app for the cameras, but Apple had pulled the app down 4-5 days ago. probably because they were selling our videos or data to other parties with new updated privacy policy which is a joke - no one could possibly be alright with all of your information being tracked and maintained indefinitely by multiple parties. Also,their PC software times out on purpose and while you'd think you're looking at live picture, it'd actually be paused and you'd be looking at picture from several hours ago."

    "I bought this camera a few years ago because I work from home and many times my doorbell rings and it's very distracting to having to answer it for unimportant things. I liked how easy it was to setup outside my front door and connect it to my network. The two-way audio allows me to turn people away without needing to get up from my desk and provides me security at night before answering the door."

    "This is okay. I had to update my router to get all the cameras to stay connected. It appears the cameras might be wireless by the description but they still need a power source. It's okay as a starter system but I would spend a little more and get better next time."

    "Well put together system that has decent to good video quality (depending on the lighting). The setup was pretty easy, though configuring the app was a little time consuming; it involved a fair amount of work with the unit and my router, but all works well now. Good unit!"

    "This is a really good outdoor security came ra that works with your Alexa smart home and it also has an alarm in case of thieves. It is really convenient as it can also send notifications right to your phone."

    "This seems like a product I would purchase and recommend after going through all the customer reviews. There were over 400 with about 80% of them being positive also managed to see some pictures of the video quality and it looked great. I've owned security cameras before so I know that image quality and user interface can sometimes be a major issue but this system seems to handle both of those aspects very well."

    "You ever needed a camera to watch your house the inside or outside while this is the greatest IP wireless camera you can have with a built-in SD card and weatherproof"

    "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."

    "The R-Tech Outdoor Bullet Security Camera is just what I was looking for. I already have a security system but one of the cameras broke. I replaced it with one of these and it recorded right to the computer I already has set up. Quick and easy, now my garage is monitored again."

    "SV3C Full HD 1080P Bullet Outdoor Security Camera Poe IP Camera is not a very expensive one, has some decent features but it is not perfect by any means. Yes, it offers infrared vision but it is not that effective in low light to be reliable. I wanted to buy it some time ago but when I read the reviews, people saying that it can fail after a very short period of time and is not reliable by any means, I changed my mind. The most important thing about having a security camera for me is to be sure that it works properly, consistently and I can put my trust in it. Without those things, being cheap doesn't make the offer attractive enough."

    "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."
