Product Reviews & Questions and Answers

AHD7-1682 is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great system, low price, works perfectly. Bout this video surveillance system for my cafe. We added 4 additional cameras and some 100 foot cables for the longer runs which we ordered through Night Owl as well. Very happy customer here. Everything worked right out of the box. Video is clear, nigh vision is clear, the set up was super easy, viewing on the phone and iPad was super easy as well. Perfect solution for video surveillance at our cafe.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to Install, Good Clarity We are using this system in our business with existing older cameras and the new cameras. The new cameras are very clear and have excellent night time shots. It was very easy to install and worked as planned. The only issue we've had is trouble reliably connecting with the iPhone app.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Product Review This is a very good unit with impressive night vision. Maybe not 100 feet, but many times better than the older Poseidon unit I had. Clarity with the 720P cameras is very good. I can now identify a person's face which I couldn't with the 420 TVL cameras my older unit had. The HD CMS remote viewing/playback software that's included is good. I like the synchronized playback feature allowing you to watch up to four channels in synchronization to see the action from multiple angles if they cover the same area. However, the older smart phone software, Night Owl Lite, connected a lot quicker than the Night Owl HD application does. Also the downloaded video is in .rf file format and the included AVIGenerator file conversion application can't make a playable video from it on my system. I get only a frozen picture that plays for the length of the video. I can find only one application online that has to be purchased that can handle the .rf file format. Night Owl, what the heck? Overall I like it and would buy it again knowing what I know about it now. Con: My older unit could be configured remotely through NetViewer. I found this handy because my DVR is in a hard to reach location. Now I have to work in a small closet to set options like motion detection areas with a mouse and monitor connected to the DVR. For this reason I gave it only 4 stars. A remote configuration utility should be part of the package.

Can you also run 1080 cameras on this system?

No. The maximum resolution of the DVR is 720p. As 1080p exceeds 720p, it will not register. Thank you for choosing Night Owl!

I have this system, but want white dome cameras for inside the house.  Which cameras are compatible with this DVR?

Asked by: CC2018
Good Afternoon, We do not currently offer any white dome cameras that are compatible with this system. Your DVR is compatible with our 720p cameras and all of our standard analog cameras. We did have a 900 TVL analog camera that would function with your DVR, but do not currently have any available. Please see the below link for some available 600 TVL black dome cameras. You can check amazon periodically for availability on our 900 tvl dome cams. http://nightowlsp.com/products/cameras/wired-analog-cameras/4-pack.html Thanks for choosing Night Owl!

What is the best system to use if you don't have internet?

Asked by: Outinthestix
Good Afternoon, All of our systems function without internet. You will be able to locally store recordings to your pre-installed HDD and can view live video and recordings on a TV/monitor. However, all of our systems require the DVR/NVR be manually connected to a Modem/Router if you want to remotely view recordings and receive push notifications to a Smart Device.
