By DJ, Jack*N*Jane, GI Jane
from Stokesdale, NC
this product does not allow us to go online from other locations outside our home and view the live footage nor does the software that came with the DVR send alerts to our smartphones as promised for motion detection alerts...***no motion activated recording***not viewable anywhere in the world***not viewable on select 3G smart phones
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Good product for the Money
from Newark, Ohio
The system works well, as the other reviews stated the color green appears white. Intalling the system did require running the wires up the inside of the wall to the attic it was time consuming to do this but well worth it. I would go with the more expensive wireless system if you don't want to mess with the wires. I have had a lot of trouble setting up the internet part of the system and Night Owl support is not very helpful. Over all I am pleased with the product for the cost it works well for what I am using it for.

Reasonable value for your money
from Meriden, CT
A good value. You get plenty for the money. Lots of features I will never use (access on the internet and smart phone). Color adjustment (HUE)is the poorest feature on the DVR. Cannot get grass or leaves to look green. Night vision is usefulup to about 20 feet. I'd recommend as an indoor camera system or first inexpensive outdoor system.
