AHD7-882 is rated out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Steve Shaw from Better than other Brands I bought this system a few weeks ago and installed it myself. Installation was easy, so was the setup. I chose this system over some others just because of the features that Night Owl had and the others didn't. And for the price that Night Owl had as compared to the other brands. On windy days you might want to turn off the text notification or it will drive you crazy with the motion sensitivity. But as mentioned in other reviews it does use up your cell phone battery pretty quick in the live view mode. The only way you can stop this is go into your app management on your phone and force stop. Then if the app is reopened then it restarts and sucks your battery down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Debbie123 from Great Product! I bought this system after my country home got broken into twice in two months earlier this year. I used the "installernet" option and arranged for someone to meet me out there and get it set up right. There is no ambient light in the back so the camera's don't see as far as I like, but they still see at least 30' out. (I plan on putting some lights up to help the nightvision). I haven't seen anyone prowling around until today, but I have seen lots of deer, rabbits, squirrels, a large raccoon and one skunk! When I saw someone backing into the drive at the front of the garage, I was able to summon help to find out why these people were walking around on my property. All was well, love this set up!

Rated 1 out of 5 by scorned from Bad Customer Service Had problem with one camera not changing from night to day purple image. Through customer service they were going to replace camera thats as far as I got. Called several times still didn't know where to send it or rma number to use. Kept telling me I would get an email. Ended up buying a 2 pack of cameras from bestbuy. System is 2 Years old know and all is well. Thinking of upgrading now to the 1080 systems but wouldn't recommend Night owl only because of customer service plus the extra 100.00 I spent for the 2 camera pak. Camera was defective out of the box

Rated 5 out of 5 by CJ1969 from Repeat Customer This is the third Night Owl security camera / dvr system we've bought. The first one stayed with our house when we sold it, the second one we bought for our new house and this one is an upgrade to an HD system. Every Night Owl product we've owned has been affordable and very reliable. We had problems with vandalism and theft at our old house and once the cameras were installed (along with signs indicating such) it completely stopped. It is also nice to be able to check on our property and pets when we're away from home. The video quality of this HD system is incredible with clear pictures day and night and vivid colors during the day. The only issue we had was one of the cameras, when first installed, was stuck in the night vision mode. We contacted support via online chat and their recommendations to (1) shine a flashlight at the camera and (2) reboot the power to the camera didn't fix it. The support agent was very polite and told us how to get the camera repaired or replaced. But the next day when the sun came up, the camera was working and has been fine since. We have a camera (different one than the one I just mentioned) set up in our garage that we enclosed for our cats and on cloudy days it tends to stay in the night vision mode. The picture is clear though and it isn't really an issue for us. The DVR was very easy to set up for remote viewing. All we needed was a QR code reader app, the Night Owl HD app (both of which are free) and the information from the DVR. In less than five minutes, we were viewing live footage from our phones. The DVR menu is also very easy to use and has been much improved over the other two systems we had. I especially like that even when it's set up to record continously, the motion events are highlighted for easier searching. Overall, I am very happy with this purchase and if we ever need a fourth system, it will definitely be a Night Owl.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Papa Joe from Works Great! Installed this system for commercial property over a year now and has worked flawlessly, 1 camera turned red, called support and had new one delivered 2 days before the warranty ran out. What customer service!
