Was looking for a budget-friendly home-use cctv dvr kit and have used this set for more than two months!

Kit comes with "4X 60ft (18.3M) Video Power Cable", so anywhere the cable will reach and you have a power socket nearby.

Bear in mind that this does NOT come with a HDD, so you will need one if you intend to record the footage.

​What brand would you recommend for good quality at a reasonable price? I've read that cameras with CCD image sensors (as opposed to CMOS) are the best type to go for.

Why would anyone still bother with analogue? Buy a few hikvisions and a POE switch, plug into an old server, job done?

HD-CVI much better and cheaper than POE systems

I bought Sony dome cameras to replace bullet type ones. Hasn't really made much of a difference apart from looking better. On screen people will look very small, number plates cannot be made out either.

Would a burglar know the difference from the external camera's ?

Reviews look good. Need nighttime though for thieving ****!!

These are 'okay' if all you want is a simple to set-up system that allows you to monitor your property. As mentioned earlier, this particular one doesn't come with a HDD, so you won't be able to record any footage until you add one.

A better system would be some HD ip cams (PoE or not) connected to an old PC. It will cost more, but will be much more versatile, better quality and easier to add additional cameras if you need to.

EDIT

There also seems to be no mention of this system on the Floureon website. They only list one AHD DVR and that looks different to this one and they don't have any reference to 1500TVL cameras.

Maybe, but find us something better for £110? What would you recommend for that kind of money?

Its more of a deterrent and generally ok for monitoring your home, who is at the door etc.

I have a 700TVL and its fit for purpose, might upgrade to this as reviews look good, be aware that you might need to forward ports for remote access.




1.3 megapixel WTF.?

Looking to get one of these for a friend - Can anyone recommend a good 8 camera set? Thanks in advance! +heat for the price of this though

selling on eBay for £102.99 or best offer item number 301687968924

Must admit I have been toying with the idea of setting one of these systems up for a long time but these analogue kits have too many drawbacks for me. The main issue being running, in some cases extremely long runs of composite video cable (20m+) The stuff they will supply is poor and wont be adequately shielded and prone to interference. to buy long runs of some of the proper shielded (twin power+video) stuff would cost more than the kit itself. The cameras themselves may have a 720p sensor inside them but PAL composite/RCA video will only do 720x576i and as stated above, once its gone down a long run of poorly shielded cable it will be degraded. That said its cheap and cheerful and reasonably good value.

Myself, I would go for an NVR (Escam Black MINI NVR N6200, £30 currently on Banggood for example) and a couple of cheap IP cameras that will do proper 720p video for around the same price as this kit. You can pick up 720p outdoor cameras for around £20-30 each, a cheap NVR for £30 and Ethernet cable costs peanuts, you can get POE injectors/kits for under a fiver too. Someone will undoubtedly ask for links to all these items but they can be easily found on the likes of ebay and banggood.

Well, Power over Ethernet (PoE) cameras need only one cable for both power and data. No pfaffing around with power sockets for each camera.

Voted cold as the seller is lying.

Anyone with knowledge of cctv knows that anything above 700tvl is just a scam.

DVRs are analogue and so are the coaxial cables that connect the CCTV to the DVR . The cabling and the DVR itself, and these constraints effectively limit the maximum TVL of a CCTV system to 720TVL. Any camera boasting a higher TVL value than 720 is effectively useless as the rest of an analogue CCTV setup will be simply unable to make use of any extra lines.

Hope this helps people before falling for any false advertising. Note, is this kit is cheaper than a 4 x 700tvl kit then obviously go for it. But don't spend any extra money for nonsense!

Are you not limited to the number of cameras you can have on a residential property? Seem to remember a something on neighbours from hell where the bloke had to remove some cameras as he had too many. Think the limit was 3.

Don't expect any support from Floureon, there the best at batting questions around. don't take my word for it... they have several websites and are on social networking. They have tutorials but ask a question and before they give you an answer which won't help, they will ask you several questions to give you the impressions they are trying to help. Check their sites... they don't even have a support section or publicly make firmware updates available. their web interface will only work on internet explorer 8 so good luck with that too. believe me... not for novices... I'm a programmer and do audio video installation and I had trouble

Majority would be at entry points to his home inside, and one outside, so I don't think this would be an issue? I think only 6 is what he's planning to use anyway.

See this is the problem with cctv... Too many "experts"... See here:

http://videos.cctvcamerapros.com/surveillance-systems/what-is-ahd-cctv.html

I've tried 1080p AHD myself and "surprisingly" it was nowhere near 960h quality.

Admittedly I do recommend using IP stuff for a new install and running network cables, you might as well future proof yourself.

Plus you can get 5mp cam's quite easily now that are IP based. Not to mention 8mp 4k cam's soon being affordable

So to sum it up, AHD is great if you have the cables in place and you want to upgrade. Go IP based if you are doing a new install, it is more future proof.

Good advice - only problem I have is leaving these adapters plugged in and potentially burning your house down, very unlikely I know but I am super paranoid about untested power supplies as I have seen some fizzle away and trip the breaker, I got my DVR cheapo one from Maplins for that very reason and then added the cameras later. At least if bought from a UK retailer (reputable one) you would think that they tested the safety to a certain standard? Any opinions on compliance tests for retailers? I bet 80% of imported stuff doesnt go through any testing, every Tom, Dick and Harry seems to be importing boxes and crates of all sorts now days.

Did you see Watchdog on BBC1 this week? Talking about those hoverboards (no idea why they call them that as there is no hovering). Dangerous power supplies and catching fire, the one featured had literally exploded. The relevance of this is it was bought from a well known high street store. Irritatingly they didn't mention which store.
In addition to this I work in the phone industry and one of the suppliers is called Data Select (owned by Dragons Den Peter Jones). I recently bought a hoverboard from them and when it arrived it came with a almost toy-like power plug. This type was featured on Watchdog a few weeks back.
I'm not sure these days you can even trust the well known bricks and mortar shops or big companies. If the products are cheap and the Chinese factory stamps the CE mark on it I wonder how many actually check and test them.

Personally, any china products like led lighting power supplies are plugged into a remote homeplug and only switched on when I am using it, otherwise they are always off and never left on on when I leave the house.

Wooosh! That one sailed completely over your head didn't it.

I was referencing, nay completely divulging that (unlike 132% of HUKDers on every single thread) i had no idea about these things and genuinely come on these threads to educate myself. At no point have i poo-pooed this deal. I merely made reference to the fact that these threads become like groundhog day with the same tripe peddled ad nauseum.

You need to master the basic skill of reading then turning that information into understanding before you start firing out insults.

Perhaps if you pop back, take a look at it, then write it out in crayon it might help.
