Product Reviews & Questions and Answers

F6-DVR8-1TB is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eyes In The Sky I have no regrets purchasing the DVR-8 system for my home! I wanted a large storage capacity, I got it with the 1 TB DVR. I hoped for easy setup, It's as easy as 1-2-3. What I didn't expect was the quality of video and how fluid the motion is on the live feed, even with my smart phone and tablet interface. I'm also impressed with the play back feature for each camera with my mobile devices, it awesome! I will and already have recommended this system to my friends and neighbors who now want me to install one for them!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great system! Easy install. Just recently purchased this system to monitor coming and going in my house. Fairly easy to install. Tech Support, Live Chat and telephone, VERY helpful. Love the motion activated recording and playback feature. Motion "events" marked on log. No need to watch hours of recording to see if any action. Being able to view "Real Time" while away from home on my smartphone is the best. Would have given 5 stars if night vision was better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Dvr!!! Very easy set up. Nice features can play back 1 channel or multiple channels at same time. Just upgraded from the night owl poseidon 8 ch which I loved until it stopped recording. This dvr has much more features. Can't wait to upgrade my cameras to utilize the higher resolution. Hope it lasts longer than the night owl Poseidon. Also has a pretty good mobile app could be better but works.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Surveillance System for the price. I am writing this review based on product quality for price. For a surveillance system under $300 this is a great system to choose. I will say that the camera's do lack in quality but still not to bad. Love the fact that I can have an app on my phone to constantly keep an eye on what is going on. Plus it is nice to have email alerts set up to notify me of abnormal activity. Haven't had the need to use support yet so cannot give any feedback there. Over great product for price.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from LACK OF SUPPORT Seems if you need help you have to reach tech support which is impossible or watch some video, whatever happened to a manual? guess ill wait for a few days for my question to be answered..... Id only recommend this product to someone as long as they are somewhat resourceful on their own....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, only a few issues I can see I set this unit up for a bar owner friend of mine. To start off with storage space is Excellent, the 1 TB HDD ensures he'll have plenty of storage space. I've setup up some that only have 250 - 500 GB and soon come to realize If you don't extract data immediately after an incident, you loose it due to the overwrite feature. The 4 cameras, while they are not variable focus and only 6 LEDs, they have excellent quality and clarity at long distances and in dim lighting. Record configuration is easy figure with out reading the manual and being able to copy the configuration from one camera to the next makes it a snap to custom set all 8 in 1 fell swoop. The physical size of the unit is great, allowed us to hide the unit in a tight space (Still allowing for adequate ventilation). Record Playback one word, Excellent, I'm able to download recorded video and take snapshot remotely, even from my cell phone via the free OwlDVR HD app. I've installed other brands, Samsung and Everfocus, Zmodo and they just don't compare to this Night Owl, both in price and features. Now the draw backs... 1. Limited DDNS support. DVR only supports Owldvr.com and the application for updating the unit only works on a pc. I registered the domain from home and without being at the bar it won't update via the <test ddns> button in the config menu. keeps telling me "Request ip address failed". Not sure what that means yet. 2. The cameras as stated before these are not variable focus so for close up locations you will lose coverage. Would have been nice to have been able to zoom out to cover the move area. 3. I understand that since this unit came with only 4 cameras it should only come with 1 octopus cable. But would have been nice since it is an 8 channel DVR for it to have come with 2 so i can use 2 power supplies to power my addon cameras. (Not a game stopper) Would be nice if they would address issue 1 above.. All in all, an excellent product. Thanks

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Doesn't work right. The motion feature doesn't work. I am sick that I spent money on a system that doesn't work correctly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from No place can be found about POWER SUPPLYS! So far I have got 1 camera working and the smart phone is also working, that is a good thing! What I have been looking for on the web site and in any instructions is "What power supply goes to what"? You get an 1.5A and a 2A and they tell you not to hook them up to the wrong application.. as it will cause damage.. What I can not find is what one hooks to the Camera's and what one to the DVR! Can we get some clarification here Please?

I actually have the F9-DVR8-1tb system. I currently have 7 cameras hooked up to it, for about 3 years now. A couple days ago the cameras went blank, reading &quot;900tvl or less&quot;. All are 900 or less. Ive rebooted and nothing works? Can this be fixed?

Asked by: Estates Eyes
This sounds like it could be a power failure. Likely your camera power adapter, or power splitter, has failed which has led to video loss. Trying cupping your hands over the lens of one of your cameras, blocking out the light, and seeing if the LEDs kick on. If they do not, please view the following link to buy a new adapter and splitter. If not, please call our tech support team at 1-866-390-1303. http://nightowlsp.com/products/cables-accessories/spare-parts.html Thanks for choosing Night Owl!

Do i have to have a computer to hook this up and to view the footage. Do i have to have an external modem or anything like that. I just want a simple record and playback without the internet or anything to do with a computer.

Asked by: Soncat
No, you do not have to have the Internet or a PC or Mac to view this system. Simply connect it to a TV or Monitor via HDMI or VGA and you will be able to view live stream and recordings. Thanks!
