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 Love this security This system was pretty easy to install, if you have DIY experience. The recordings are very clear. It is easy to navigate the app and check on things while away. The hard drive has alot of storage space which is an added bonus. The cameras are holding up well in the hot/cold/rain etc. I love the motion activated spotlights for when I come home after dark! I do not have to remember to turn lights on before I leave! There are no monthly fees with this system, and your hard drive stores recordings. One time fee to purchase. You can buy more cameras and expand up to 12 cameras as well if you need more. Must have system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Viewing Quality We've had this system for almost a month. It replaces another system. This one is amazing. The clarity in the viewing is the best we've had in over 5 years. I'm able to see perfectly at night. We also enjoy the added benefit of security when we're away. It is expandable to accommodate more cameras. It can store up to 2TB. That will last us forever. The app is so simple to use. Since it is wired, we had it professionally installed, and it took only a couple of hours. We compared quite a few before choosing this one. Best part is, there's no monthly fees. We've already purchased the door cam, which we will be able to connect with our system and view them all on the app.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crystal clear images and the app works great I dont want to get into a huge review here, but I have to say that Night Owl knocked this one out of the park. I was concerned about choosing a wired system over a wireless because it is alot more work to install, but I have to say it was worth the extra time and effort. I had a wireless system before and I was always changing out batteries and losing signal. It was a nightmare. Now I will never have to worry about those things again. If youre trying to decide which route to go and you have the option, I will say go wired hands down, but thats just my personal experience.

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 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointed I bought this as my old HD camera system, which was working fine, used a PC running Win 10 to monitor 8 cameras using a CMS app. I bought a new PC running Win 11 and no longer had the CD. Customer service said they no longer support the HD system and no longer have the software. So I bought the new system. Connected my 8 existing cameras and installed 2 new 4K ones with new cables. Picture quality is same as old ones and the sopt lights do not always turn on when someone is in front of them. App on cell phone is ok but new app for PC lacks features of old app and doesn't size the images to the screen...must use a scroll bar to move up/down to see each row of three camera images.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great, very sensitive! Video quality is great, very easy to set up, simple but useful interface. The motion detection is a little sensitive, even on 'low' setting, it will pick up folks across the street in their garage. Depending where you live, that could be a good thing. I would definitely buy this exact setup again

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy set up, top notch quality camera system The Night Owl 4K UHD wired security system is an incredible value. It comes with 4 very high quality cameras and is expandable to 12 total channels. Installation was straightforward, the hardest part was running the cables. Otherwise, the software is intuitive and provides easy access to most of the features. The spotlights are excellent and provide easy, bright visualization of whatever is being recorded. Video quality is great, can make out details easily. However, I don’t think I’d be able to make out a license plate or identifying detail from far away. Overall, very pleased with the system and would recommend it to anyone who is searching for a customizable / expandable solution.

Does the alert "smile you are on camera" every time it detects motion or is there a setting where you can set that you are away to have that alert come on or can you turn off that alert

Asked by: Julz M
Good question. There is a setting in the DVR where you can set one or more cameras to automatically sound the alert when motion is detected. Alternatively, you can disable that option and manually choose when to sound the alert by pressing a button in the mobile app. Thank you for choosing Night Owl!
