Seems a really good price. I've been looking for something similar too, and it's tempting at that price.

Thanks for sharing
720 waste of time.....

720 waste of time.....

As long as the lenses and IR are good quality then 720 would be fine.

Anybody know what smartphone app this uses? Thanks.

Cameras which aren't poe type cameras give fairly grainy pics but fine for keeping a general eye on things. I cant comment on this system but I installed a system from sannce for a friend recently. I think it was around £100 for a four camera system and then a hard drive at around 70 pound. If you have plenty of money the poe cameras will give a better picture that would actually be HD but are generally more expensive that this.

Zosi 1080p system with smart phone app on Amazon is around £30 more 2 years warranty Im very happy with mine
not sure 720p would be enough for me
The DVR looks very similar to the sannce one I got from Amazon.

The cons I see is the 720p, and bnc connectors.

Mmm, quick websearch suggests it uses questionable NPView app with users stating "Utter rubbish" and "Worst app in the world literally. Rubbish!!": play.google.com/sto…_GB

Warranty... If it breaks, take it back within 3 years!

If it's not up to your standard after setting the DVR & Cams up, take it back within 28 days for refund.
Seems over priced to me for 720p.

You'd be better spending an extra £75 for a 1080p 2tb swann kit Here

Or Here's a kit on ebay for £139.99 - comes with 1080p cameras, a 1080n DVR with 1tb hard drive. So you'll not be recording in full 1080p but it'll still be better than 720p. It'll take an extra 4 cameras too.

It's not a bad price for a simple system but u can get some decent small WiFi cams for £30 each and a free app
Checkout the yi cams on Amazon, they are sooooo easy to set up on free app. All you need is a 32gb memory card
Good price...I paid more than this for a single Hikvision camera!

If you want to be able to rely on footage in court should the worst happen then I doubt 720 would cut it - would suggest additional research first as images must be of "good quality". (from own bitter experience).

Picture images are generally good with most cctv BUT video footage can be different all together in my experience - have you got a link for the y cam you recommend compared to this ?

No worries I’ll pass on your suggestion though, don’t wanna waste my time trying to find videos on YouTube when I thought you have a set up of your own with a link to reviews from others

Anyone know the official stance on cctv intrusion? I’ve 3 cameras trained on my house, by an obsessive neighbour. He sends me various text messages etc when I drive past the cameras, very weird!

This suggests it’s not breaking the law and, in summary, tough luck

Information Commissioners Office summary: capturing images exclusively of the camera operators own property is ok; but capturing anything beyond the camera operator's own property may require DPA registration, signs, etc. ico.org.uk/for…ty/
"If your camera covers, even partially, any areas beyond the boundaries of your property, such as neighbouring gardens or the street, then it will no longer be exempt from the Data Protection Act (DPA) under the domestic purposes exemption. This does not mean that you are breaching the DPA but it does mean that you might need to take some steps to comply with it."

Legally you cannot use video footage that is beyond the boundary of your property. Only the Police can use it. We have a school near us and one of the cars got bumped. I could not give the footage to the car owner only the Police.

If you want a good quality system have a look at this site - hdcctv.co.uk/ obviously more expensive than the system here. 10% off in April with code APRIL18. My system has been up 5 years, only had to replace a noisy cooling fan in the recorder.
From the start the picture quality gradually goes down, so a cheap system will soon need replacing. I had to install more Infra Red illuminators to get the night pictures just right. At the end of the day you are protecting your property and your family.

If you have had cavity wall insulation done then knock out the nearest plug in the hole they drilled, for the cables, then you only have to drill through one brick, makes life easier. Loft is the easiest place to run cables and gets your cameras high up where they cannot be tampered with.

Hi Barney. POE stands for Power Over Ethernet. It doesn't affect the quality of the picture. It's just more convenient with regards to wiring. However, I do agree that 720 is a little low if you want good footage of identifiable characteristics.

What's that camera?
I've been researching for ages and it seems you need at least 1080 or 4k as by the time you zoom In on 720 a lot of quality is lost and you can't see who. Is who...
