Save money and DIY! Great product! I bought the 8-channel system, but currently only plan to use 4 of the cameras. Installation is probably going to be the biggest challenge for most people. However, if you are a competent DIY’er, you shouldn’t have a problem. The biggest challenge for me was how to get the wiring inside the house, because I live in a 2-story house and did not want to run wires to the attic and then down the walls. My solution was to pull the vinyl soffit above my porch and run the wires into my office that shared an outside wall with the porch. I drilled a 1″ hole with a paddle blade bit, into the top plate and then just fished the wires down the wall (with a fish tape) in between the insulation and the drywall. Inside of my office, I cut a rectangle in the drywall about the size of an electrical box so I could cover it with a wall plate when finished. I did this because all of my cameras will be monitoring the front door/porch/driveway and the 65′ of wiring that this system comes with was…

The system was relatively easy to install for my fiance and I I did a lot of research before buying the 8 CH DVR system. The system was relatively easy to install for my fiance and I. He ran the wires through the attic and drilled holes to install the cameras all around the outside of our home and two inside our home. All of the cameras have a very clear picture and video real time with very little lag. The motion sensors are easy to program and can be adjusted to have more or less sensitivity and you can even exclude an area of any screen. For example, we have a road that one camera can see and did not want traffic passing by to set off the motion sensor so we were able to exclude the road as part of the motion sensored reaction. so now we do not get a message when cars pass. We were able to easily connect the HVR system to our TV so we can watch the cameras from the TV or the app on our phone. Setting up the cameras initially was made easier by the YouTube videos Amcrest has online. They walk you through the initial setup step by step…

Okay cameras, software for remote pc viewing is weak. First of all, I’d like to say that the cameras work as advertised, however if I could start over, I’d go for the 1080 ip cameras. The detail of these is just not that great. I did have a defective DVR and the company was happy to replace it, however it took about a month for them to get the stock.My complaint is the software. Port forwarding as explained does not work, and many other have had the same problem. The fallback is what they call SmartClient, which works fairly well if you are on a Windows machine. The Mac version is much weaker. The biggest problem is that you can’t zoom in on the timeline and in order to zoom in on a certain time is very difficult when you are seeing an entire 24 hour day timeline on your screen. Also, if you try to access the user manual for Mac, it starts out fine, but then the screen captures are not what accurate and some are even screen caps from the windows version.
