Product Reviews & Questions and Answers

XHD501-44P is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good System Reduces False Notifications Good system for the Price would be 5 star worthy if the iOS app worked better. Once you set your notification Zones up properly it greatly reduces the false notifications. The iOS App works ok but can stand to be improved when viewing playback it seems that its takes an hour for the video to show up in the iOS app. The Windows based app has the video almost almost immediately

We get temperatures below -4 degrees in the winter. How does this affect the camera and the recording. Do you have cameras that go below -4 degrees.

Asked by: Kahoka
No, we do not currently have any cameras with that low of an operating temperature range. We don't recommend using the cameras in temperatures that exceed the operating range, as this will likely cause damage to the camera. Thank you for choosing Night Owl!

Does wind effect the motion detection from trees or bushes or snow. What is the temperature range.

Asked by: Kahoka
The implementation of the PIR technology is meant to drastically reduce false alerts by requiring that both motion (pixel change) and heat be detected simultaneously. There may be occasion where unrelated heat and motion are both detected, but this will not be frequent. Trees, bushes and snow should only seldomly product recordings and alerts. The operating temperature of the cameras is -4 degrees to 140 degrees F. Thank you for choosing Night Owl!

Can I hook up the nightowl DVR into my main router and still be able to view all cameras on other tv's that are wireless? We have Dish TV with satellite so we have a main router that feeds all signals to other receiving routers.

Asked by: Mira
In order to see your cameras on a TV, you will need to hardwire the DVR to your TV via HDMI or VGA cabling. Connecting your DVR to your router or modem will allow you to remotely view your system on a smart device, PC or MAC. Thank you for choosing Night Owl!

I already have the Night Owl AHD7-441 system installed, will the cables from that system work with this system.

Asked by: lifter
No, those cables will need to be upgraded. This new system uses our Class 2 In-Wall Rated cable. This cable must be used with our DVRs over 1080p in resolution. Thank you for choosing Night Owl!

Would like to know if this cameras come with a remote control.

Asked by: Efra
No, this unit does not come with a remote control. However, it does come with a USB connected mouse. The mouse is the preferred method for navigating the DVR menu to adjust settings. It you would like, you can purchase a wireless mouse for maneuvering as well. Thank you for choosing Night Owl!

I have installed the 8 camera 2 Mpixel 1080P system which I purchased from Costco. Can I purchase the 5Mpixel cameras and use them with my system? Also, can I retrofit my system with the 5 Mpixel cameras?

Asked by: Ken Ando
Hello, Thank you for contacting us, I am not sure if I understood your question correctly, so I will try to explain the two main compatible options. if your current system was sold with all 1080p cameras and the model is HDA10 this will not be able to receive 5mpixel camera signals. you must get 1080p hd cameras by preference the same brand. Only our newer systems sold with 5m pixel cameras are compatible with those systems. based on the signal technology. Best Regards.
