Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great security system I bought system DVR-XHD20W-41-JF at WalMart on black Friday for $150. Installation and set up was very easy, the free app for the phone is great. Playback is easy and I keep it hooked to one of my televisions as well. The night vision is great.

Does this set up have a way to send you a notification to a smartphone to alert you when motion is detected? If so, how do you set that up?

Yes, it does. All you need to do is download our free mobile app, connect your DVR to your router via Ethernet cable and then add your DVR to the App. You will then receive an alert anytime one of your cameras senses motion.
