      Customer Reviews

      Rated 4 out of 5�by 1 reviewer.
      Rated 4 out of 5�by Easy Set Up Just got the system and so far it has been very easy to install. I am not using the internet function so that made it much more easy to install. The night vision really surprised me as to how much I can see at night. Tracking the recorded video is also easy. Roger C April 20, 2015
