this is NOT 4K recorder! check 7:01 resolution, there is not even 2K only full hd passive mode, nice rip-off

What switch router do you use for all those POE ethernet cables ?

Do you connect your Lorex NVR to external hard-drive ?

How big do you recommend 8 cameras ?

WHO HAS THE TIME TO SIT AROUND AND MONITOR SECURITY CAMERAS ALL DAY LONG. So great, you're staring at the monitor at 3am and you catch someone messing with your car. SO NOW WHAT? Are you willing to get up off your butt, grab your shotgun and go confront the criminal?

If you want video surveillance while the power is out you could possibly use an APC power supply. It charges while it's plugged in and the moment it goes out it starts using the battery.

George X
Cameras are mounted too high. A camera identifies a person by their face; not by a bird's-eye view of their head. Also he did not show how he installed POE, which is no small feat because that is the hardest part of the installation.

Jeff Thurber
Don't these companies connect all your videos to the big worldwide net...and can see all, and as I have heard, anyone can hack into them and see what you seeeee???

You forgot to mention that you stuck with lorex cameras only! You can not buy any specialty cameras only what is in there catlog.

I see there’s two wires on the back and it just requires one the ether. If I have a power source does it send the information to the box or do I still need the ether cable

Thank you very good video. I am in the market for a good system. This has caught my eye for sure.

What the heck is "few hundred dollars?" $300? $500? $900? What is "several thousand?" $10,000? $90,000?

We bought the 9 package bullet cameras and my wife and i like the quality but we hate the app so much were going to go back to night owl. The app is terrible. (Lorex cloud app)
Comment from : Riley Wolf

Half Jin
Lorex has a such poor customer service. Buyers beware!!! I ordered 4 cameras and 3 out of 4 the audio on the cameras don't work. One camera stopped working all together a while back. All the customer service calls went to nobody. They have this badly designed ticketing system which is always under construction!!! WTF! Are you serious Lorex??? One more thing, their software is garbage. Do me a favor, go to app store and checkout their app ratings. I made a mistake of not checking that out first before buying the cameras. One star rating on most of their apps!

how do you get the video with the time stamps? i have the lorex nocturnal cameras
Comment from : Stax of Funk

Happy Happy Panda
I have a lorex system but i have so much issue getting footage out of it. When i get the footage through network, the only file format that works is .DAV. If i obtain it and ask it to convert to AVI, the file doesn't play. Their Software is poorly made from Dahua. Their system is rebranded Dahua including their firmware but somehow when they remade the firmware there are many bugs including converting file while grabbing your footage. I managed to use a Dahua software to convert the .DAV from Lorex system but thats a lot of work and took a very long time and research to find the correct software from Dahua. Anyone looking to get a Lorex should be aware, its not user friendly for the non tech savvy.

What a bunch of garbage. Save your money and buy a real solution that will last more than 6;months.

Their camera systems are garbage and the reviews are faked. I bought a set up from Sam’s club and they worked for three months then quit. The customer service was horrible and not U.S. based so NO help at all. Don’t waste your money.

Great Video! Excuse me for butting in, I am interested in your opinion. Have you researched - Mahorrla Defence Wisdom Method (do a google search)? It is a good exclusive guide for securing your home from danger without the headache. Ive heard some pretty good things about it and my friend at last got cool results with it.

Adam: Appreciate your excellent review. Now, 18 months later, any new thoughts? Thanks. My only question: how much cold/frost can the cameras handle?

Ron Navarreta
One of the problems I have experienced with a competing system is lag, specifically lag time between an incident and the time I am notified on my iPhone. I have also experienced 20-30 second delays in cell phone load times. What have been your experiences in this regard with this system?
Comment from : Ron Navarreta

J O'Brien
My biggest complaint and concern is the phone app. Navigating is a pain and not dependable. It would be nice if they had a simple mode similar to Nest. When I need to navigate quickly my Lorex will lock up, pause in areas, loop, etc. I can easily scroll through footage on my Nest but on my Lorex I have to be extremely gentle or video will bounce all over the place. Simply put I have two Lorex systems and love the video quality but still use and rely on my Nest 95% of the time. My advise to Lorex is to clean up the app and program to make it simple and easy to use as well as dependable. I''ve had my lorex for over a year and still can't figure things out.

i have quality and cheap HD cameras,am responsible for delivery to your location,pl add my WhatsApp to +8613953710319
Comment from : Homes Andrew

Quick suggestions: Bench test your gear and make sure it works before you install it. Draw a picture of your home and where you want cameras, then prioritize the location on necessity. Focus on entrances/exits. Set to record 24/7 - once the HDD runs out of space, it'll simply write over the old stuff. If running your own cables, use a fiberglass pole (glow rod) to pull cable. Post the security signs/stickers by the entrance to deter people. Swap out strike plate screws on front door with longer 3" screws as it's harder to kick in. Burglars don't like to be seen. Keep lights on at night (garage/front door/back door). Good Luck!
Comment from : packerbackertx

Really dislike LOrex. Very hard to connect to wifi |Tech support is "off shore" and don't have the language skills to help. Extremely frustrating and difficult to get working.

Motorrading Around
Can we have a new update on this system and how they have been since this video was added please
Comment from : Motorrading Around

If the DVR gets stolen do you lose all your recordings or is it backed-up off site?
Comment from : 2671996619fedcba

Jerett Crumbley
Questions regarding the app, 1. Does the app only provide camera access locally on the network? 2.Can the system be connected to a VPN? 3. If the answer to number 1 is no does the device automatically open any ports on the network(security risk)? 4. If the answer to number 3 is yes does it provide network encryption?
Comment from : Jerett Crumbley

Be aware that all these Lorex units have VERY LOUD FANS that will drive you nuts. I think these units are over priced JUNK! My unit didnt last very long and now is a paper weight!

The Deitz
The system is being sold as a 4K system, but at 7:14 in the video the highest resolution setting appears to be 1080p, tell me more.
Comment from : The Deitz

wac 85
good vid, i agree with you on the things you picked out, 20 buttons to just set the camera the way you want it. yikes. phone controls don't need that, do like the high res. and night vision. my guess on the re-cap i think you called it being dropped is they didn't have enough people spending the money on it so they cut it. thanks for the good info.
Comment from : wac 85

Extremely well made video, thank you. I'm sold. I'm going to pick up one of the cheaper 4-camera systems probably this weekend. Thanks!

I Adam like the cameras. I like to know where can I find a video on how to actually install and run the cables underneath the soffit the house
Comment from : Alfredo Perez

I've had 3 Q-See camera systems over 15+ years, they started out well with good cameras and customer service. In the last few years quality has got downhill getting tech support is more painful than a root canal. Reading reviews on Lorex and Swann seems customer service is no better. Q-see's software is no better at being more intuitive. I don't recommend buying Q-See, may give Lorex a try

I have a PTZ camera that is good for review. US only. Anyone like it please contact me.

Ali Ahmad
this is really helpful ... loved it
Comment from : Ali Ahmad

I've been using these for about 4 years now. The biggest problem I have is the camera RJ-45 connection to the cable. They are not very water proof. Water gets in all the time and shorts out the connection. I've been wrapping them with cling wrap and then wrapping with black electrical tape. This seems to do the trick. Oh, opening a support case is rough. You have to fill in a lot of details before it will let you even submit the ticket. Good luck with that.

Thank you for the detailed information, I’m looking for a spy cam that fixed in spot light, any suggestion or recommendation please.

Walts Synthlab
I just picked up one of these Lorex 4k cams, and I must say I am not the least bit disappointed. This 4k cam replaced an older 2k cam. I really like the Ultra wide FOV. The balance of light between dusk, night, and dawn are all very clean...much better that I expected. The 2k cam was OK, but the 4k definition is really exceptional. I bought mine on a Xmas discount of $180 (regularly $320).

Jr Gomez
I have my cameras on solar so they never go down
Comment from : Jr Gomez

the prices for these have gone down by 75% since then. it's only like $300-400 for a 4 cam system thats all wireless and the cameras are much better quality with more IR lights for nightime
Comment from : eksine

These cameras suck. My neighbors house got broken into and detectives asked to check our Lorex cameras and the units didn’t record anything during the robbery, it was embarrassing, Cheap cameras. I suggest watching more videos on different brands and buying a good unit not this one.
