Reviews

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not too happy ! I just purchased this system directly from Night Owl. My system arrived and it took a long time to get the system to work because it came with a broken mouse and I still cannot finish the set up using my monitor because of the broken mouse. Its been very difficult to get help. I followed everything and submitted all the paperwork and emailed it as required to get a replacement mouse and I am still waiting. I tried support and no help there. I love the product and purchased many systems for my different locations over the years but this is very disappointing and upsetting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I purchased this camera system since my current system's DVR stopped recording after 5 years of service. I am very pleased with this new system and all of the included features as well as the great video quality. The tech service department was very helpful with assisting me regarding all of my questions and concerns.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It could be better I bought this 3 weeks ago. 1. My older system was just 3 yrs old. I was told by nightowl that it is old system and they no longer support the software (although iit was just 3 yrs old) 2. When i bought the new system i was told that new system will not need separate monitor. I do not have a monitor. During the installation and subsequent trouble shooting ,i was told by nightowl that i wiill not be able to proceed without monitor. I had to buy monitor. 3. After initial setup, the system went blank after one week. Technical support could not fix it and blamed the problem on my internet cable. My house is hard-wired into my 4 yr old home. Later on my own, i was able to fix the problem; internet cables were fine. 4. I am really concerned about how much security this system will provide when i am out of town.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I bought this about a month ago for $215. The security system was on sale, so for the price I’m happy with the purchase. The camera quality is good and installation was easy.

I have an older nightowl system. Can I use the same wiring and just change the camera and dvr ?

with the wired camera system at what distance from the camera does the camera start recording

Asked by: Kirb72
It would vary based on setup. Where the cameras are installed, how high up they are mounted, how they are angled, what the camera is fixed on, etc... all would affect how far the cameras can detect motion. Also, the size of the object (human, vehicle, etc..) would affect the cameras ability to detect it an increased distances. Typically, under most conditions, the cameras can detect motion events up to 100 ft. Thank you for choosing Night Owl!
