I'm in the market for a 4K system. What impressed me with this system most is the night colour images. My business was burgled 3 days ago and I had a cheapo Yi camera which did capture what went on, but in IR and only 1080P. Not useable. Even seeing the colour of one of the scrotes Nike hoodie may have been useful. This would have captured that

I'm intending on buying today, so won't be offending if better 4k systems suggested that don't break the bank.

Nice first post alex1972.

More information and a few more reviews here: - lorextechnology.com/sec…1-p

Hard drive size calculator here - lorextechnology.com/art…tor

Only maintenance is cleaning cameras and keeping spiders off them!

Edit - it does say ambient light needed for night colour vision, or the cameras will be in black & white mode at night.
The only snag I can see to this system is that the cables from the cameras all go back to the recorder, so it needs to be positioned carefully to make cable routing easier. (preferably out of sight or locked away so it does not get stolen).
My system has a separate terminal box for the camera cables that is up in the loft, and has a single ethernet cable that goes from that box to the recorder. I live in a bungalow which makes camera installation easier, if you have had cavity wall insulation done then knocking out the plugs that they put in to seal the holes can make it easier to route cables.

I bought my system from here: - hdcctv.co.uk/sal…tml

I found them very helpful with choosing my system.

THat is one hell of a price! probably worth it, if you're a business.
I've been burgled three times (not a business) Now I have a couple of security cameras, they give me useable HD video and pictures iat night. The main problem is activation. Almost anything sets them off, raindrops, spiders. Whatever area I set. I believe this is better when there are several cameras working in a system. I have never used Yi cameras.
I leave it to others to comment on your system.
There seem to be a lot of HD Chinese cheap systems around

Spider spray doesn't work. I have a computer fan which blows on one camera at least keeps the cobwebs off
Is POE for anyone who's interested.

I think instead of motion detection, thermal detection would be better to reduce false positives... Does anyone know if anyone but Swann does that? I thought Swann was a rebadge of Lorex?

Well, what happens with my cameras is that infra red from the cameras is reflected back from anything flying past the cameras, raindrops, moving spiders webs (in the wind). Infra red is heat radiation. Probably better cameras can detect the difference between the radiation from the camera refected back from a moving thing and radiation from a warm moving body. Not an expert of course
you don't want to just record footage of a masked hoodie. Consider the physical security to prevent intrusion in the first place.

I REALLY feel for all victims of crime. Be aware, there is some sort of proven statistics that say there is a good chance of being hit AGAIN if its happened once already. Either same vulnerability, or same gang nicking the brand new replacement stuff after the first blag

Depends on how many cameras you need and what type.
What size lens? Wide or narrow?
Pan tilt zoom needed?

Check out the Hikvision 8mp camera setup.
Support is excellent and they run their own servers for remote viewing.

We have been burgled recently and lost gold and silver wedding jewellery.

What physical security can you suggest other than cameras? Any suggestions are most welcome.

I'm dreaming of a 4k wireless system enough reliable to connect to my router, maybe helped by a mesh setup if needed. I really don't want cables around. Probably 2 o 3 cameras would suffice. Any suggestions?

That's awful! I'm not a security expert, but happy to make some suggestions:

1) Keep "investment valuables" off site, such as safety deposit box at the bank etc

2) For in-house stuff, there's two angles. There's "what can we do to keep the bad guys out" like good locks, external lights etc Physical, visual, and auditory deterrents.

Then, sadly, IF someone gets in, make their life difficult. A home safe can be under £200. Don't keep everything in one place. Many home intrusions last just a handful of minutes. they swoop around grabbing obvious, easily resold stuff like laptops, phone, cameras, jewelry. Avoid well known / common hiding places, as they guys know them all (drawers, back of wardrobe etc. You could go with creative stuff like hollow book in bookcase etc

Hope that helps. Try some professional advice like local police Best of luck!

I doubt you'd get 6 8MP cameras and a NVR for anything like this price.

I have hikvision at my house, with 4 1080p cameras. I find I can only view playback on my phone for a few seconds and then locks up. The company I bought from suggested it was my ISP. (200Mb down but only 20Mb up, which could be the bottleneck he was talking about.
i have a family member whos bought this after an attemted break-in and at this price I think you'd be hard pressed to find a better system. great bit of kit

I have the HIK system which is 1080p and cost three times as much

Depends what you're using it for. If it's for pretty much short range indoor use then sure, get those thermal sensor trigger cameras. If you want to cover a larger area or further distance then you miss a load of true positives too. I'd personally rather have more false positives than losing a single true positive. Stoage isn't too much of a problem.

The best and cheapest way to start is with external pir lighting. If someone approaches part of your house at night then they need to be lit up like a Christmas tree! This would put off a lot of prospective burglars to start as they will have to be static for a short/long time prior to gaining entry. A very visible flashing alarm bell box, obviously ideally linked to an internal alarm, but if you cannot stretch this far to start then just the visible bell box is a deterrent. Window locks if you don’t have them. If you go out then don’t make your property easy to look into, as it’s easier to see if no one is home then, so partially close blinds etc and close internal doors.
Basic warning signs on some windows indicating your property is alarmed (these can be transparent so they don’t make your windows look ugly, but get the message across). Cctv viewing the front and back of your property which is very obvious to anyone looking (put it high enough so it can’t be reached/sprayed but not so high you have a terrible angle of anyone and can’t see their face). A ring doorbell (I know these are slated by some but it’s another visible deterrent and will record attending persons straight on). Importantly make your neighbours aware you’ve been burgled - they are likely to be more vigilant and look out for your property too.
Just a few ideas that I hope help you feel safer in your own home

Hi,
Burglars generally make the decision which house to do from the street. They are generally looking 'are you there', 'what security do you have?'. So, not being able to see in, things like blinds, net curtains and having lights on timers 365 days a year help. Things like constant lighting supplemented by PIR activated lights help. Most burglaries occur afternoon/early evening. Houses that look scruffy sometimes as often scruffy house/not maintained can mean lax security/old windows/door locks etc. Having an alarm box that looks like its well maintained, company branded and going to work is a big deterrent, also cctv although many wear hoodies. Anti snap door locks can help but they don't deter many burglars if you are out as they are happy to break/force a window or patio door. If they get in a well maintained alarm should trigger, if they find and smash the control box the siren box should still run. The worst place for all your valuables is the main bedroom, it is the first place to look. Small safes stuck in wardrobes or under stairs cupboards are easily defeated. Electrical are not much of a target these days to pro thieves, mostly gold particularly Asian gold pieces and cash. Nice and fast cars are also targets but tend to be stolen overnight when keys are left downstairs. That's when anti snap locks are useful as breaking Eurolocks is common and quiet. The other issue is assuming the worst and making sure you are properly insured, and knowing what documentation insurers will require should you claim. Having '£30k' insurance is no good if it only covers £1k jewellery. Many burglaries occur because people don't follow simple things like making it look like you are in, leaving windows open or simply pulling them shut and not engaging the handle. Loads of people have alarms that are old and batteries run down or simply haven't set them even though they try to suggest they have to police and insurers. I'm generalizing here, none of it aimed specifically at you :-) Also if they get in make it difficult to get out, hide keys. At the end of the day there's an element of luck involved too. To make it extra difficult get neighbours to engage with each other and look out, also if many get cctv it makes it even harder. There's some useful advice in other posts too.

I was responding to the user talking about HIKvision. Nothing to do with this thread and deal
Purchased this system back in March 2019 honestly at this price it is a no-brainer.

As long as you install the cameras correctly by ensuring the POE connector is protected from moisture using a weatherproof junction box in addition to the weatherproof caps you should be good.

A few negatives:

- Recording 4k with 7 cameras you are looking at 4/5 days recording on the 2TB Hard drive.

- 4K recording at 15fps ideally would have liked 25fps/30fps.

A decent piece of kit for the money.

I picked it up on Saturday and got picture on tv but couldn't connect with app and ended up locking myself out. Couldn't get to speak to Lorex until Monday (and is a similar frustrating experience to Indian call centres. I could barely understand and was obviously the same in reverse. I was told to unplug and don't power up for 24 hours and have been given a pw to use.

If that don't work it's going back. I don't recommend lorex support.

Picture quality looked fine on my 65" TV, but the night colour is crap. As soon as the lights dimmed it want to infrared.

I also bought the alarm kit I posted, but not arrived yet. I also got a yale keyless lock which integrates with the system.

Will post my thoughts on the cameras later...

Hi,

what app are you using? The app is actually pretty decent. You need the Lorex App (not to be confused with FLIR) from either the App Store or Google Play.

You need set up a username and password then using the Lorex app scan the QR code and you are good!

In relation to colour night-vision you need to click on camera setting and change it from auto to colour! It’s worth playing around with the settings.

Remember poor lighting will always have a negative impact on any CCTV.

Try contenting Lorex via Facebook you will get the US customer service, although a bit slow at first they should eventually assist you.

The current price you will struggle to find a better system.

Try it and if it’s not suitable then return it.

For the price it’s decent, a Hikivision at similar specs will set you back £800
Right. I had problems when speaking to their support on Monday. 20 minute call cut off on answer. Next one, 22 minutes, gets answered and the bitch says hold on a second and put me back in the queue. Eventually I spoke to someone and it was excruciating as their English was so poor. He attempted to reset my password, which if never set. Eventually he gave me a 6 digit number and try after disconnecting in 24 hours.

I gave it 48 hours. It didn't work. So I phone back. They answered after 30 minutes. The girl I spoke to was again Spanish. Looking on trust pilot, it's a regular complaint. ie they don't understand Enish.

Funnily, she gave me a new 6 pin code... But only after telling me the reset codes are only valid 12 hours. (So the last plank after 2 hours on the phone failing to do a thing, gave me his solution which was a connection and was never going to work.

Whilst this girl kept going away, I eventually got in, but there was now a further problem the cameras were also showing invalid username and password.

I eventually decided to do a factory reset.... She wasn't sure how, but fortunately I was able to explain to her how to do it. Really, that's what happened. The longer the call went, the more obvious it was she didn't have a clue.

On 2 hours, I told her this was ridiculous. Do you know how to reset a camera password, yes or no.... And she hung up to.

Bottom line what I saw of the images I wasn't impressed, but the support was such a disgrace. On Saturday and Sunday (calling costco and getting nowhere there either) I've now waisted over 6 hours on the phone and I still can't get a working image from the two cameras I tried with and eventually the third also got this wrong username and password message.

Back to costco they go.
