Review and Buying Guide SUNLUXY® 8 Channel H

I have not but put in the system, but have observed it in action at close friends dwelling, and i am vastly impressed with its performance.

Not setup appropriately yet, but cameras look to give a pretty very good image. Dvr is 8 channel, and merchandise comes with 4off 700 tvl cameras. With a ability adapter to run the four cameras. No hard drive is integrated, and i would suggest western digital inexperienced desktop drive which should give a great deal of time ahead of it overwrites.

Terrific system, relatively straightforward to established up and when it is functioning presents terrific clear viewing, easy to accessibility remotely. Have previously encouraged the system to many good friends who are wanting a cctv systems.

We will worth it but require a little bit of tech savvy. Good bit of kit for the rate. The cameras are a very good high quality and your fairly considerably getting what would expense you £299+ on the significant st for just around a ton in this article. Distant viewing is difficult to set up but if you use the e-seenet option then make positive you first alter the ports to 8080 and 3456 respectively then make certain you log on to your router and set port forwarding to these values for the dvr (tcp and ‘any’ respectively) it will work. Obtain an e-seenet application or go to [., enter the id number the dvr generates and admin and no password then happy days. ]

Nonetheless fitting the system out, but it appears to be to do particularly what it says on the tin.

SUNLUXY® 8 Channel H.264 D1 DVR Realtime Digital Video Recorder HDMI + 8x Weatherproof Indoor / Outdoor IR Night Vision Bullet 600TVL Security Camera Surveillance System Kit with 500G Hard Drive : Very poor documentation on how to set up the monitor system. Nothing said on how to set up the hard disk.

        You cant go wrong for this price :). Had this up and running for about a week now. I cant believe how good they are for the price. Just what i was looking for. I have now ordered more cameras for the other channels. Can be almost completely controlled over lan network and viewed from the internet over phone or pc.

      Easy to set up and the software built in is easy to use. The graphic display of recording is very helpful meaning you can skip to the parts that have been recorded. This is great for the money.

        Build quality – nice looking – only one audio input though (although this does not represent a problem for me, personally)installing hard drive – no more difficult than any external hard drive i have ever done and once formatted, worked fine. I get the impression that the ir illumination was meant for a slightly narrower lens because the middle of the view is lit better with the ir. Colour is fine, quality is commensurate with shop cctv. Software – network setup – ftp and smtp work fine, works over wired and wireless okay (samsung s4 and wired windows machines) – using static ip addresses – recording – can record at certain times of day (set differently for each channel if required) and can set to record if motion detected. Noted that whilst set 4fps for normal recording, it will run at a lot more (30fps??) when recording on motion detect (md) and you can use more hdd space by selecting md recording than if you just record continuously, if you have a lot of md events. Also, you can block out areas of the screen from recording, such as if they overlook areas you don’t want to record. – motion detect – set the greyed areas to be where you are detecting motion. Can send out email, upload images via ftp, sound an alarm if the md is triggered. – encode each channel differently if required. As far as i can make out, all the channels are the same and will record at d1, hd1 and cif in the main stream (what goes on the screen and your hdd) and cif and qcif on the sub stream (what goes out over the network live to devices). You can set the fps and constant or variable bit-rates at various qualities to optimise the quality and hdd usage. – channels – you can name each channel individually (such as ‘1 front door’; ‘2 back door’ and so on) and you can position these on the recorded image as well.

    Unit is very good but the cameras are not so good at night, perfect in the light, value for money.

    (don’t forget to buy a hard drive). Can i just start by saying hats off to the seller, ordered saturday evening, arrived on tuesday even though the expected delivery was thursday to the following monday.Super impressed to begin withi purchased the wd 1tb 3. 5 inch internal hard drive – caviar blue additionally as the dvr does not have a hard drive (hence the low price) the installation was easy, undo a few screws with your standard philips screw driver, plug in the power and data cables into the hard drive, and screw to the base of the dvr with the supplied screws, couldn’t be simpler. (i will update when the hard drive is full and starts writing over old data to give an idea of how many days/weeks of continuous footage 1tb will hold)the most difficult part of the installation process of this system is deciding where to place the cameras, but they are incredibly adaptable, wall plugs and screws are suppled to fit them almost anywhere. I have all 4 cameras installed with plans to expand in future as this is an 8 channel dvr. Two cameras are placed at the rear of my house overlooking the garden and rear entrance, another on the front of the building overlooking the drive and the final camera in the hallway monitoring who’s coming in and out. Once you’ve decided where the cameras are going fixed them in hooked them up and hidden the cables its a breeze, hit record and sit back and relax knowing if some troublesome chav jumps over your fence and tries to burgle you again you won’t have to chase him down the street to catch a glimpse of his facenight vision – i do not know what people are complaining about, perhaps they’ve been watching too many action films and their perception of night vision is overestimated, if you read the specs of the cameras it tells you roughly how far they’ll see in the dark, but if you need to picture it think of it like this, in your home, anywhere the camera is placed inside you’ll see the whole room very clearly.

    I always read customer reviews when i’m going to buy something out of the ordinary, or a book, but rarely write a review. I was looking for a cheap security camera system after a small incident at home, after some in shop research i thought i was going to have to shell out about £300 for the 4 camera 1tb spec set up. Another internet search came up with this system for about less than half the price, the only draw back you had to buy, fit and format the hard drive separately. After reading the other customer reviews i was fairly sure i could do it. The dvr & camera set arrived within two days of order, the hard drive (supplied by another) a day after again. But the most important thing is it really was as easy as the other reviews had said, along with the help of you tube, which is brilliant for follow along step by step visual guidance. I had the hard drive fitted, formatted and the cameras up and running within a few hours, it actually took longer to site the cameras and feed the wire back to the dvr. Connecting to the internet was a little more difficult to get my head around, i use a wireless router with power line adapter system and because i’d added another adapter to the system i didn’t pair it with the others, as soon as i’d figured that out i had my e-seenet id and within a few minutes i was viewing the camera images remotely from my galaxy tab and my note phone. Picture quality is good, it’s never going to win any bafta’s but face it for the money it’s cheaper than a night at the cinema, night vision gets a bit of glare from the infred, playback takes a bit of figuring out and in single, double or even four screen set up you’ll see what has gone on in your absence.

      Excellent piece of kit, must admit you do have to be a bit tech savvy to set it up, but if you are ok with technology this should not be a issue,set up so you can view it on ipad and iphone and it work brilliantly. Seller 1st class, arrived after 2 days of ordering.

        The whole system was a little overwhelming to begin with but take this from a dumb dumb, its far easier to set up so don’t worry.

    D1 encoding is only on channel 1 & 2, the rest are cif, which was not stated on the description. One camera does not work at night. Cctv software is in chinesse, even though i selected english. Iphone app has adverts, which is a bit annoying. Otherwise a good system for it’s value.

    I went for the 700 tvl higher resolution camera’s as this was a purchase to replace my old dvr system. As the init on;y came with four camera’s, i used some of my old camera’s lower res camera’s and the difference in picture quality is clear. I was somewhat sceptical of the dvr unit based on the price, but i am pleasantly surprised. I had to set up an account with dyndns. Org to be able to view the dvr over the web, but that was not expensive. Overall this is great value for money.
