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 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good system. This is a pretty good system, The video quality is not 4k but it's certainly good enough for what its intended use is, plus allow for longer recording time. The night vision works well and can see out to about 60 feet or so. The wiring type was not my preferred, it uses the outdated small coax cables with the screw-on connectors on it, I think they call them BNC connectors. I would have greatly preferred for it to be regular CAT5e wire that my house is already prewired for, it would have been super convenient to just use what was already there rather than climbing throughout the attic running new wires. The recorder box is super easy to set up and use, I was impressed. There are all kinds of settings and adjustments you can do in the software, and it is not required to be connected to the internet unless you want to use the app while away from home. It really is as simple as hook up all the wires and turn it on.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product I bought this system approx. a month ago and have been very impressed with ease connectivity. Motion detection needs a little improvement, hence not 5 stars in my review. Otherwise Bought this system for most bang for the buck and have not been disappointed. Facial capture does a great job, at a glance you can see who has triggered one of the cameras. Very satisfied. Saw the system for sale at a major retailer for more. Ordered directly from site, saved money for the same system. Will defiantly purchase more cameras to add onto the system. Thank you Night Owl.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Capture Feature! I was able to install the 4 camera system without any issues. I connected them to one of our smaller TVs so I can conveniently monitor the cameras while I am home. The images are very clear with great color. The human detection feature with facial capture is my favorite. I don't have to zoom in to see a face, the camera automatically takes a picture. Even the night images are clear and with color. The spotlight is another great security feature. I will definitely be adding on to this system and recommending it to friends and family.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Night Owl security System easy to install The Night Owl wired 8 channel security camera set up. The Cameras are easy to set up, directions that came in box were easy to read, understand and execute. We have not been using the lights, but the vision without the lights is amazing. We live in an area where there are a few street lights. We wanted a wired system as changing out batteries in other systems takes up time, and having to remember to get them down, etc. If you are looking for a wired system, with great video quality, this is a great set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great security cameras! We have been interested in getting some security cameras from quite a while now. Im glad we finally got them. Its a great investment with great peace of mind for me and my family. The instructions were very easy to understand. The set up of all 4 cameras on the corners of my house were easy to install to. I always thought setting tgese up would be extremely hard and tedious, but it wasnt at all. The picture that shows up on my phone is crystal clear! Im extremely happy over this wonderful security set!

With the DVR-VDP2-8 system I'm wanting to change the recording options from motion detection to 24hr continuous recording but after 4 months of having it I can't find the instructions. How do I switch it to record non-stop ?

Does theWMBF-2VDP81-4 camera system have a Digital Zoom feature that can be used?/

Asked by: Okie 1
With the exception of our PTZ (Pan Tilt Zoom) cameras, Night Owl's cameras are fixed lens cameras. This means they do not have optical zoom capability. While viewing in Live View or Playback mode you can digitally zoom in through the App, but you may experience pixelation when you do this. Thanks for choosing Night Owl!
