Product Reviews & Questions and Answers

HDA10L-7BU-841 is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy set up, but needs some improvements I bought this system 3 months ago and I am generally happy with it with 2 exceptions. 1. The camera angle is too narrow to cover the area I need to cover without installing more cameras. It already takes all 4 just for my front door and driveway. I don't want my house to look like a prison yard so that's not feasible. 2. The operating system is too complex. when remote viewing, the software keeps resetting, requiring me to consistently go through the process of selecting the DVR and each camera over and over again. Also, when selecting playback, it is too difficult to find the location of the recording you need. Sometimes the program just wont fast forward, or skip, and instead reset back to the beginning, or locks up for a few seconds. Recommend making a wide angle lens overlay the existing lens and improve your existing customers cameras, and changing new cameras to a better angle. Any reduction in video quality would be well worth the extended viewing angle. Also recommend a reprogram of your software to make it more user friendly.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great video quality. Better software needed This product is easy to set up. It also delivers great video quality. However the software within the DVR and the mobile phone app need to be redeveloped from scratch. Both UI's are extremely difficult to use

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great System Bought this system on sale back in November For my condo. Took me a few days to install it MY WAY! I was impressed with it. 2 weeks later i purchased the 2 cam add on pack from a local retailer. Now i have full coverage in and out. The I-Phone mobile app is ok but the Android app for my tablet is very buggy, it is so slow and is a battery killer.

Hello. .. I just bought this system and only one of the cameras shows up as 720p . The other 3 cameras show up as 900TVL. Why ?

Asked by: Kat11
Good Afternoon, 900 TVL is the default setting some of our DVRs register. If you have a 720p camera connected to the channel in question, you should be receiving 720p. I would double-check in the camera settings to verify. I have attached your system manual for you to reference. Additionally, you can contact our 24/7 tech support team at your convenience.

Hi, can I skip the password requirement every time I go into program?

Asked by: John Mac69
Good Afternoon, Once logged into your DVR on a TV or Monitor, hit the Lock Screen option on the Live View menu. If locked, you will be required to login each time you access the Main Menu. If unlocked, you will not be required to. Please note, that leaving the screen unlocked risks allowing other access to it. Please view page 30 of your manual, attached below, for more information.

when it shows the four display boxes, channel one has a black screen that takes over all the other channel boxes and i cant take it off. Is their anyway to fix this ?

Asked by: Nathan22
Do you have covert mode enabled for these channels? Covert mode allows select channels to continue recording, but not be visible from a TV/Monitor or smart device. Please contact our free tech support team at 1-866-390-1303 for troubleshooting assistance. Thanks for choosing Night Owl!

Does these cameras detect OUTSIDE  motion if I install them inside? I have tried another company and the IR sensors won't work because of the windows.

Asked by: rvdhout
I have two of these cameras set about 20 feet from the window, covering a room with windows and the cameras catch the cars on the street going by and also people on the sidewalk and the windows don't pose a problem at night.

After installation, if a camera is moved does it have to be "reprogramed"?. I moved two cameras to get a different view and even though there is present feedback or view, they are not recording. Playback of days activity - no recording of two cameras

Asked by: Vivian
Hello, No, changing the position of a camera won't change its mode of operation. By default, Night Owl DVRs only record when motion is detected so it's possible that it hasn't detected any motion to start recording. If this isn't the case, then this issue will need to be troubleshooted by our Technical Support team. Technical Support is available 24/7, 365 days a year and can be reached at 1-866-390-1303.
