Product Reviews & Questions and Answers

AHD7-842 is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works for safeguarding home and family. I bought the 8 camera system after a break in. I felt that the burglar would be back with the valuables that he left even the ones in plain sight. I had my system up and recording for two weeks when he came back, while I was home. I watch him ring the door bell looking suspicious. Then followed him with the cameras as he made his way to the rear of my house. I was able to arm myself and call the police before he made entry. He was caught and with the video evidence, he was locked up and my family gets to have peace of mind knowing he was Caught thanks to the night owl system.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from some issues... Have had it for a week now. Disappointed that the motion feature doesn't always go on unless you're really close to the camera, definitely not 100 ft away! Haven't been able to get it on my phone yet and I am a tech savy person, ugh.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent upgrade to HD Just recently purchased & installed this system. The image performance and responsiveness of the GUI is remarkable in comparison to older models. I've installed several types over the last few years and this is an excellent product. Night Owl has also resolved the camera color variations I've seen on previous analog models (not everything is purple or grass brown). When using the CMS viewing software you can now playback multiple video streams simultaneously which earlier models could not do remotely. The motion detection zones can now be better fine tuned as there many much smaller grid boxes to define your areas. The "smart" (QR code) system allows you to setup remote access very quickly and easily. Only issue is if you are trying to setup your own DNS access the drop down menu on which service to select only includes "Night Owl". This will likely be resolved soon as many may have services like I do (DynDNS). Keep up the good work Night Owl. I'll report on the 1080p model I have when I install it...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to install and program I have purchased several Night Owl Products and I love how this programs. Need to have a software that will allow me to view my systems on my laptop when I am away from home.

Does this record and can you hear sound ? I'm looking for a 8 ch with video recording & sound ! Prefer white with the led lights a complete surveillance system! What do you recommend? Thanks 

Asked by: Mary Palacio
Hello, The cameras included in this kit do not have audio capabilities but you can connect an External Surveillance Microphone to add audio. AHD7 Series cameras are only available in black, if you prefer white I would recommend our AHD10 Series system.

Are the cables and cameras for AHD&-841 water resistant

Asked by: Omartinez
Hello, The AHD Series camera are IP-66 rated (weather resistant). When you place your cameras/cables outside, Night Owl strongly recommends that you place them under an eave or awning or shelter of some kind to protect them from being overly exposed to the elements. They can withstand jets of water and dirt debris but if left too exposed will incur damage. Thanks for choosing Night Owl.

How do you thread cable from outside to inside the residence? Thru the wall?

Asked by: Digger Jerry
Hello, There are many ways to route cabling, but I would suggest looking for a natural entrance point although some customers will need to drill holes through a wall to route the cable properly. Thanks for choosing Night Owl.
