Featuring EIGHT powerful infrared cameras, and a user-friendly Digital Video Recorder equipped with H.264 compression and virus-free Linux O/S, you'll know exactly what is happening around your premises, as well as when it's happening.
This kit is ideal for both commercial and personal use, with the EIGHT Infrared Cameras featuring a sleek and weather resistant design that allow them to be used within both outdoor and indoor settings.

- If you are familiar with the basics of networking, such as IP addresses, SMTP servers, etc. then it's fairly simple to setup and configure.
- Good Night Vision
- Many features
- E-mail alerts after the first one (in succession) are each delayed about 3 minutes. If someone is walking around you'll get the first e-mail picture within seconds, but you'll keep getting more every 3 minutes. If it tripped 8 time within a few minutes, you wont get the last e-mail snapshot/photo till about 30 minutes later.
iPhone/Android app is 3rd party, not that great-- but it does work.
- No computer software, all software I found that was supposed to work ddidn't and didn't have instructions. The '.ini' config files had the comments written in Chinese.
- The web client is ActiveX which ONLY works on Window, and ONLY with IE 7 or below. IE8 and IE9 would cause the internal webserver to hang. I would then have to reboot the DVR to regain access, and as stated earlier, only with IE7 or below.
I primarily bought this because it said iPhone compatible. Technically this is correct-- it's compatible, but not that great. I returned this product and am currently looking at the Lorex Edge+. Lorex costs a couple hundred more, but you get what you pay for. They received the return about 5 business days ago, but I havent been refunded yet; and I've been on hold for 30 minutes now waiting for hoping to get this straightened out today. Be prepared to wait a while if you need to call HSS tech support.
