Product Reviews & Questions and Answers

I've reconnected my night owl fs-8500 today after quite a while.  Dvr and cameras work, but I cannot login.  It's asking for device id but I cannot find the sticker mentioned in another question. Is it possible to derive the ID from the serial number?

Is the system compatible with Android Galaxy SIII cell phone?

Asked by: Sherry24219
Good Morning. Yes, all Night Owl DVR/NVRs are compatible with Apple and Android smart devices. Simply download the Night Owl Lite App from the Google Play Store and sync it with the DVR. Please copy and paste the following link to be taken to a YouTube video on downloading the Night Owl Lite App. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kyn6152fYd0) In the video an Apple device is used, but the process is nearly identical for Android devices. Thanks for choosing Night Owl.

Good Afternoon. No, the 720p HD cameras are not compatible with your DVR. That DVR is an outdated model and we no longer manufacture compatible cameras. To figure out what possibilities are available for purchase please call our pre-sales line at 561-265-5272. Thank you for Choosing Night Owl.
