    Rated 1 out of 5 by from I Wouldn't Recommend Purchasing Defender!!! We have had problems with this company from the beginning. We ordered the Defender with 8 cameras and we were shipped only 4. I contacted Home Depot who was AWESOME and acted as my "go between" to help get me the rest of my cams. The company made us go back and forth several times and even made me take pictures of the boxes my items came in and the items I did receive. Come on now! Finally I was shipped the rest of my cameras. This was in Feb 2015. In the spring we were finally able to install them outside and finished installing them probably by summer. This is when the rest of the fun started... The DVR freezes up often when you try to play back footage. It eventually reboots itself and boom, one of your cams comes back grainy and pinkish purple making it almost impossible to see anything. We let it go for a while thinking it would clear itself up. Nope. Never. After we lost another, we contacted the company. If you want to return it for them to check it out & want a substitute sent in the meantime, you have to give your credit card # & it costs no less than $60 each! So you can either have a hold on your credit card of $60 per cam that you are returning or go without your security for weeks while you send the cam(s) back and wait for the new ones to come in. We opted to send them back in batches, because so far, 7 of our 8 have gone bad. Out first replacement looks different than our original cams. We set it up and sent two more back. Those two replacements look different than our original AND the first replacements. Now we have 3 different kinds of cams. AND one of the two newest ones already broke! The area where the wires are seemed more loose than the other one that came with it and sure enough, it just came apart. And now, the first new one we received has a yellowish tint after a reboot instead of the pinkish/purple. We are sooooooo more than fed up and now they are pushing us aside and telling us to contact Home Depot if we want a refund OR I can take pics of the monitor to show the colors AND go around taking pics of where my cameras are installed. Seriously? What a horrible company. I am SO very sorry I ever purchased this brand and never ever will again.Oh, and as some other reviews have said - they don't have a dedicated app for your phone or kindle... it really IS a pain to set up AND after a recent reboot, we've lost the ability to view the cams from outside the our own wifi. We're so over this system. Stay Away. Trust me. It's not worth it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Video Survelliance System Great clarity. Easy installation. EVERYTHING you need is in the box. And the Smart Phone app is great! The cameras offer excellent clarity. Eight cameras allowed me to cover all exterior spots and I had cameras to put INSIDE the house too! These are quality cameras and the hard drive covers tons of recording. Love it!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great DIY setup So far, an excellent product. Cameras provide 1024x768 resolution. Daytime has excellent range - details good at 200+ feet. Night is good, I'm not sure of the distance for viewing facial details - I just haven't measured it yet. Setup was easy without networking. Networking is a bit of a challenge. I don't have that worked out completely. For a computer, it uses IE with ActiveX - a security liability. It supports MAC, but I don't have one to report. Support for an Android device seems OK. I've not had the chance to setup access outside my network so I can't comment on their process/documentation. Cables are proprietary (at least I think). Each cable has 2 connectors on each end - a BNC for video and a power cable. They are about 65 feet long and provide good length/coverage when running through the attic. Cameras must wall mount and that is an issue. There are times when it would be nice to ceiling mount. Mounting would be less challenging if an option was available to have software rotate or invert the picture existed. For me, 8 cameras is more than I need, but 4 was the bare minimum I needed. With 8, I have spares. The cost to replace one camera almost made up the difference between a 4 camera and 8 camera setup.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better Than Wireless It may take awhile to install but if you are changing from wireless, the images are great. No wifi interference is great. And terrific night vision. Very very clear.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Our Second Defender System This is our second Defender system. First was less than a year ago and now this because of a home break-in. During the break in the hard drive was taken and some cameras damaged so going to try another. We are happy with the way it works and should have had the remote viewing set up so we would have had a photo of the thieves sent to our phone. So be sure you set up the remote viewing. We are trying to set that up now but Defender website has been down for a few days. Not sure what the problem is there. We will combine this system with a monitored security system for better protection. The cameras are great to be able to see what is going on around your home day and night. Just remember the hard drive can be taken so make sure you have your photos backed up. Overall we are happy with the system and have learned some hard lessons from the break-in of our home.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME This is an awesome product.  I was looking for a DIY home security system.  The installation was a breeze and the price was perfect..  What really impressed me was the color resolution during the day and splendid "night vision" at night.  When I first performed a "test" of the night vision to see what it would look like, I placed one camera in a pitch dark room.  I looked at the feed and felt there had to be a light on or something...NADA!! no light but AWESOME video feed in pitch black darkness....I was SOLD and would highly recommend!!!  Also, customer service is excellent.  Had a small issue setting up default features on DVR.  Customer support responded same day and resolved the issue in a few hours....

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great System, A Little Patience Goes A Long Way! I've had this system for a few days. I already installed 4 out of the 8 cameras working on it day by day after work. So far so great! The pictures are really clear, the actual DVR and Camera Set Up is pretty easy and quick even for a 1st timer like me. The DVR screen is pretty easy to navigate and setting up alerts/emails/etc was a breeze. I did have to run some extra wiring around the house and will be putting some PVC piping to protect the wires from the elements outside. The only reason I didn't give this product a full "5 stars" is because the remote access, externally viewing your DVR, and iPhone/iPad viewing is a pretty tedious and long process if you're using a Mac computer. Not sure about if you're running Windows on your PC but on my Mac it's not working when I tried. I'm hoping on the phone with Defender USA tonight after speaking with a rep on their "live chat" and will re-post depending on my experience. Overall, if you need a surveillance system with crisp images and easy set up, this is for you. If you want a system that you can view externally and are using a Mac at home, you might want to hop on the phone with them first and do it right the 1st time.
