Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing quality. We live in an area with a lot of wild animals and often they get into the garbage or even cause other kinds of damage. Finally, I can keep alerted of the cameras pick up any movement. The best part is that I can be sent a real time alert, that also has built in spotlights and scare off the critters. The quality is smashing, clear picture and such a huge convenience to the house. I was even fortunate enough to catch someone trying to steal a package off my porch. They saw the cameras and put the package back on the porch, it was awesome! I highly recommend this for anyone needing a little extra security. I plan on buying this for my dad for Christmas.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing 4K security system I totally am in love with this night owl 4K security system. I got tired of relying on my internet connection to be able to save and stream my properties video feed. This is all on a 1TB hard drive and honestly it’s a very easy setup. Everything is wired. Each camera comes with ample length to run a connection to different areas of your house or property. So far the Apple app it pretty good. I have very fast internet so my stream is perfect remotely. I love the clarity and the spot light motion sensor. It makes getting a clear shot at night easy. So far I am loving this system and might upgrade for other cameras.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Night Owl Security Cameras This Night Owl security camera and dvr storage set has very clear video. It was pretty easy to set up. The Night Owl app is very responsive. It is easy to adjust settings to control notifications from your phone. It includes the necessary cables and hardware to install the cameras.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Initial thoughts Once the unit arrived, I changed out my existing cameras (unit not compatible with previous Night Owl AHD-10 unit) and tried to download the Night Owl Connect app. The app indicated that it was not available for my phone). I preceded to set up the unit manually with no major problems. The pictures are clear but there are several problems that I wish the Night Owl rep would have told me before I purchased it. 1. The unit is only compatible with a 1080p or 4k tv (or monitor). This required me to purchase a new tv to be able to set up the unit. Additional cost incurred - $240 2. The Night Owl connect app will not work with an Android Version earlier than 8.0. I'm going to have to purchase a new phone as my existing phone cannot be upgrade to Android 8.0. Still pricing new phone but expect an additional cost of $200-$400. 3. Remote viewing on my computer can only be set up with the Connect app. 4. No software is available to set up remote viewing on a computer. While I would recommend this unit to a friend, I would also tell them about the issues listed above.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Video, App needs work These were an upgrade to an older Night Owl System so installation was a breeze as basically I just changed the cameras and the DVR. The video is nice and the ability to do human vs vehicle vs face detection is very helpful at cutting down false alerts that you used to get from the "pixel change" motion alerts of the older systems. My biggest gripe with this product is the app. It's slow to load, and some of the features for iOS don't work. -For example the do not disturb function is hit or miss as I set a time only to fin out that it does not work. -There is no snooze function for motion, so you have to turn off notifications if you are going to be in an area outside for a while, be prepared to be constantly bombarded with notifications. -The sound warnings, while effective are all or nothing. They constantly go off when motion is around and repeat the same phrase over and over. Would be nice to have a chirp option that let's someone know there are cameras but does not constantly shout out Smile you are are being recorded. -It would also be nice if there was greater integration into the smart home universe. For example, IFTTT integration would be amazing such that you could trigger lights to come on inside the home if a human is detected, etc. None of that is possible currently.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not so great features I have this equipment for 3 weeks now and there are some features to improve: definitely the App; besides not so user friendly it doesn’t respond fast enough when want to have access for a quick view or to check a sensor alert. Also I have to close it totally very often to make it respond and load the cameras. The other not so good features are the cameras speakers and the siren. Those aren’t good quality and hard to understand the prerecorded message or when having a conversation by the two way audio cameras. On the other hand, the good things it has are the good quality video of the cameras and the no need to have a tv or monitor connected to set up the system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Peace of Mind Received this video surveillance system expecting a complicated setup but that's not the case. Installation instructions were simple and clear. It is pretty much plug and play. Download the app and set it up and you are good to go. The 1TB hard drive will store plenty of footage. There are 4 additional ports to expand to 8 cameras if you need. The 60 ft camera cables allowed us to place them exactly where we needed them with some to spare. For this price I can't find any reason to not get the system. Totally worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from spotlights are great! WOW! Awesome buy! I had the installer put all 8 cameras inside and outside around my house. I love the feature on the app where you can shut off the spotlights because I really didn't want the lights in my house but absolutely wanted them on all outdoor cameras! The lights are super bright which I love so it's like a deterrent for anyone who comes on my property!
