Customer Reviews

Great night vision I bought six of these cameras. They are great. However, 2 came bad, out of the box. I installed them at 170 feet from the head-end location, (With two others being over 200 feet away), and these two wouldn't work properly. Intermitten on and off. I took two of the others, and installed them in those locations, and they worked fine. I then put these on two shorter runs, (Within 60 feet of the head-end), and they worked fine. Not sure what the problem is with these two, but for the amount of money that I paid for them, it isn't worth my time sending them back for replacements. And, they have been working fine on the two shorter runs. Very clear night vision capabilities. In fact, the best that I've ever installed, (And I've been installing cameras since 2000) I recommend them. However, you may get one that won't operate correctly, at long distances. (Regardless of the RG59 / RG6 that you use) Be forewarned. 3Not bad for $40 :-) I installed two of these today for a customer who was expanding an older system. We were immediately impressed by the hard metal case. Put four deck screws in this camera's mounting bracket and it would probably survive a baseball bat. Zoom and focus were easy to adjust and the light sensor was very responsive. The nice thing about these cameras is that they're not covered by plastic domes that would otherwise become dull or reflect the LEDs back into the lens.The user manual is loosely-translated from Chinese. Most of it you already know. The important missing part is how to take it apart for installation: Hold the top part (with the cable notches) and twist that ring just below it. If you didn't buy a 12-volt adapter, you could always use an old one from your Linksys router.This is an older-style CCTV camera that uses BNC connectors and Siamese cable (RG-59 with extra power wires) to a DVR or video monitor. It is not for SDI or HD CVI systems and is not an IP camera nor is it wireless or POE (power over ethernet). It also does not remotely pan, tilt or zoom, and has no motors for doing so.For $40, they look good and they're quite solid. If you're wanting to expand or upgrade your current system, these would get the job done. 4Great camera capable of a nice wide angle I purchased this to replace a similar style camera that did not have a variable lens. I installed this about 1 foot up and to the right of my front door and adjusted it to give me the maximum wide angle view. It works quite well for viewing all the way up to my front door which is nice in case someone is leaning up against it or a package was left outside. Image quality seems very nice and the adjustments such as focus work well. Focus is extremely sensitive so it can take a bit of tweaking but the wide range and sensitivity is very nice. Night vision is good although I'd prefer it to be less focused. This seems to be a common issue with these types of camera liking to have their LEDs spotlight rather than flood as much as I'd like. I'm uploading a picture as well of my front door view although it's through the iPhone app so is of lower quality than the actual image the DVR sees. All in all I like it and will probably get one for my back door too for the wider angle view. If this had been available when I upgraded my other cameras I would have gotten this over the non-adjustable ones for several locations. I'm hoping the infrared LEDs last as a lot of other brands of these types of cameras seem to have their nightvision LEDs burn out over time... time will tell. Build quality is very nice. The matte grey paint seems high quality and looks expensive. I like it better than my other glossy black cameras. 5SECOND change of rating (DOWN) See photos! Update #2I am lowering my rating to one star based upon the abysmal performance of these cameras after less than four months. FOUR OUT OF THIRTEEN CAMERAS HAVE FAILED AFTER INITIAL INSTALLATION. Failures occurred in a serial fashion. All cameras worked for a month or so, and then the first camera developed problems, which I will characterize below sense if you don't know any better (like myself) you may think is the problem with either the DVR or the power supply.It would be one thing if these cameras failed continuously but instead the cameras develop intermittent multiple image problems and then clear up. It's very frustrating. I finally reached the point with three of the cameras that I demanded replacements from the seller and was given an RMA. The seller said it was extremely unusual to have this kind of failure so rather than send the cameras back immediately I investigated further and found out that each of these suspect cameras was providing smaller images of not only this particular camera but other cameras not on the system. After spending two hours troubleshooting this with the DVR manufacturer and reached the conclusion that the multiple images on a single camera was the fault of the DVR, the DVR manufacturer shipped out a replacement DVR.Within days of installing the replacement DVR, the same three cameras develop the same intermittent failures. I replaced two of these cameras with a different manufacturer and the third with a spare of this same camera. WITHIN HOURS, the camera replaced with another one from this manufacturer FAILED COMPLETELY. Now I am trying to return FOUR out of THIRTEEN cameras (one still untested) within the warranty period. After talking with multiple people this evening, and preparing for an RMA for the four defective cameras, I WAS DISCONNECTED.After all this, the seller said they were OUT OF STOCK until the end of May.NOTHING honored under warranty so far. Save yourself some grief. AVOID THESE CAMERAS LIKE THE PLAGUE!!!!Update #1.I am changing my review of this product to three stars from one star based solely upon the quality of the image, the construction of the product and the price/value ratio. Why not five stars? Here's why:Dinged one star because of ZERO instructions or any written warranty (so save a copy of the listing and your purchase date in case it fails within a year!).Dinged another star because even after contacting the seller in Chicago by phone, they could not solve the problem of how to separate the base from the rest of the camera. Their only solution was to hold on to the 1/4-inch base ring with one hand and the 3/4-inch adjacent ring with the other and twist them counterclockwise. This might work if you are the INCREDIBLE HULK but for us mere mortals it is an exercise in futility.However, I figured out a simple solution that apparently the seller doesn't even know. Locate a screwdriver with a round shaft with a length of AT LEAST the diameter of the base of the camera AND with a shaft diameter SMALL ENOUGH to fit into two of the four slots on the back of the base. The leverage and grip of the screwdriver will allow you to easily twist them apart.Caveat: Of course this rating is provisional on whether these cameras last at least a year and if not if the seller honors the warranty. One note of concern is that even though the seller IS the manufacturer (or at least contracts with a Chinese factory), they do not list their cameras on their website with the products they do sell. The seller did mention that they primarily sell to installers, which might explain the absence of instructions but not the absence of statement of warranty.Final Note. Installation is fairly easily but it will take two people to install--one to aim the camera while the other views the image on a monitor. Adjustment of focus and zoom is industry standard with two small screws on the face of the camera.Original Review.I bought this camera based upon reviews and pricing after trying several other Chinese camera with terrible resolution. The problem with this camera is that it is next to impossible to remove the base from the camera in order to attach it to a structure. I am not the first to comment on this and I have even read a very detailed review talking about Allen wrench screws. Guess what? Mine has no visible Allen wrench screws. I am not a weak person and even with all my strength, it is impossible to unscrew the base from the camera. Added to this is that the camera came with ZERO instructions and the email I sent to the seller (poedepot.com) bounced back. Additionally, their website has nothing but a phone number and an email address for sales. I have sent an email via Amazon, but if you think you will get support, I doubt it. So that begs the question on whether they will honor the supposed one year warrant since NOTHING is in writing. Sound like a sketchy operation. No way I am going to buy six more cameras for my system. 1Awesome Camera's So I have bought a few of these camera's now. I have them connected to the Zosi Security Camera DVR. The wide angle of these camera's are awesome. The picture is great, adjustable focus and zoom. Easy to install, they are a lot larger than I expected, but after a few days with them up, you pretty much forget about them. So far they have withstood -14F and a blizzard that iced them up pretty good. The night vision is good, be aware that the lights are so good, it makes seeing plates at night a giant white rectangle, due to reflection. 5Fair camera for the price range Good camera for the price range, using it zoomed all the way to monitor far end of property +/- 300 feet away from camera.I have a yard light down there on the shop for night use, as the IR would never reach that far. Works for my other cameras at night.This camera is not that good of a night camera as my other analog cameras, has a lot of raster problems, and motion sensor recording is useless at night, not talking about the long range here, but the stuff up closer, like 20 to 50 feet out. The motion detection will be going full time at night due to the raster problems, looks like the old TV's with a bad reception and the wavy lines. You can make out what the general picture is, but that's about it.If this camera was used for up close work [100' or so] backed by a good non-IR type light, it might work fine, as the cameras IR feature would not kick in. Recon indoors under light would also not be a problem for it.In short, I found it not to be much of a IR night camera.Day use is good. Zoom is decent at the range I talked about. Works out to about a 4 power zoom advantage for the farther away stuff.Overall, at this price works for general monitoring needs, just be mindful of the night vision problem. 4Fair Value for The Price - Need Mounting Instructions - See My Review For How We recently began having a shoplifting problem at our snack shop. It was kids doing it after school. Our candy display was not covered very well with the current cameras. Since there were extra channels in our nightowl system I decided to buy two more cameras. Plus, one to replace the hidden motion detect camera originally installed to keep an eye on employees.I started with one black model R-tech camera. I bought two more white model R-tech cameras after installing the one. Got white because they were out of the black ones. Ion our case the color did not matter.Pros of these cameras low price, fair quality. They have a somewhat clearer picture than the older cameras we have. No they are not going to be as clear as a $100 plus camera, but they are acceptable. In fact they are better than a more expensive Swann brand camera I have looking at a different angle.Negatives it is not quite as wide a viewing angle as I would like. The motion sensor hidden camera had a wider viewing angle.Big disappointment in that there are ZERO instructions on how to take these apart to install. A simple pictorial showing how they go together would have been nice. You must take them apart to install the base. That is why I knocked them down to four stars.The cameras consist of four pieces. The camera (1) itself. A half round shaped open-ended cover (2) that goes over the camera, A ring (3) that goes over that cover and is used to lock it to the base (4).They are slightly different mounts!In order to take apart the black one, to install the base on the surface, there are two small allen head screws in the ring. Remove these and the ring comes off. The screws lock into a ridge on the base to keep the ring, cover and camera on the base.When I got the white ones there was only one allen screw in the ring. I took it out and tried to twist things. It would not move so I assumed it was similar to the black one in how it was put together. NOT. I almost broke it before I realized the ring is screw mounted to the base. Just very tight. You have to unscrew it in order to take it apart. These are very fine threads.Both cameras are a little tough to get back together. They mount very tight in the base. You have to loosen the ring to move the camera. It ll take a while to get it right. Fortunately, it is a one-time thing since they are fixed mount. On the plus side, no one can easily jar the camera out of line once it is installed. You really have to take the time to loosen it all back up to move.My personal preference is the two allen screws into the ridged base vs the screw mount ring to base. It felt like I could very easily cross-thread the screw mount. It took a little careful doing to get the threads started. At the same time the ridged base ring needs to be pressed on tight to get the allen s to go.Six of one vs half a dozen of the other.One hint while working to get it aligned, is to put a little liquid hand soap on the back part where the camera sits on the base. You ll see some rubber mounts. And I put some liquid soap on the threads to help lubricate them. This can help you as you slide the camera around to get the right view when installing it.If you need zoom these will likely work well for you.Once you have the camera aimed, and the locked in place, then set your zoom with the small screwdriver provided. Then focus it in. It is very sensitive to the focus. Just tweak it a little at a time.Overall for the price they work OK and I would buy again. I still have two more slots in my camera system so I may get a different wider-angle camera, or two, to see the corners of the store. Meantime the visible cameras have cut the shoplifting down.Remember the more cameras you have the less the time you can keep the old video. In my system, it went from about 10-12 weeks to a little over 8 weeks. 4Best Budget Cameras available. I have been running 2 of these for about 3 weeks now. The are well worth the money, and integrated nicely into my budget system. These seem to be higher quality than some $350 commercial cameras I have recently dealt with (wirepath). After I installed the first camera, I couldn't imagine getting a better camera for my money, so I went ahead and bought a second. I plan on buying 2 more to complete my system. IR works better than expected, but I have noticed they do run a little warm in IR mode...... 4Great camera for the price! Has been working so much better than my older cameras! The IR at night is definitely a lot brighter and makes it look like its dawn or something when viewing my driveway! I have only been running it for little over a week but so far can definitely say its doing its work without any issues so far. Great aluminum casing and easy to adjust zoom and focus on it! 5Love it. Solid. Great image quality and build quality. 2 weeks tested. I was a bit skeptical at first but now I'm impressed. I hope it lasts. I installed it two weeks ago. It does feel very heavy duty and solid. It is a heavy camera and not a junky plastic type. It is all metal. You MUST loosen the two set screws to allow the maneuverability of the camera to function. Be careful as when you loosen the screws the pieces may come off so be prepared so it doesn't fall.Performance??Well, as soon as I hooked it up I saw it had a visibly wider range than my 2yr old Q-See cameras. SO I LOVE THIS feature.Second, the colors are definitely richer so the image is clearer.You have control over Zoom and Focus which is great BUT the Focus takes time to set up as it's touchy. Finally, seems less vulnerable to spider webs!!!Night recorder, it actually surpassed expectations again over my QSee cameras with more IR LED's. Just be careful not to have any object or obstacle too close to the camera such that the IR LEDs would reflect the IR into the lens.I will be buying more as they are even prettier than the QSee cams. 5

In my system, it went from about 10-12 weeks to a little over 8 weeks. 4Best Budget Cameras available. I have been running 2 of these for about 3 weeks now. The are well worth the money, and integrated nicely into my budget system. These seem to be higher quality than some $350 commercial cameras I have recently dealt with (wirepath). After I installed the first camera, I couldn't imagine getting a better camera for my money, so I went ahead and bought a second. I plan on buying 2 more to complete my system. IR works better than expected, but I have noticed they do run a little warm in IR mode...... 4Great camera for the price! Has been working so much better than my older cameras! The IR at night is definitely a lot brighter and makes it look like its dawn or something when viewing my driveway! I have only been running it for little over a week but so far can definitely say its doing its work without any issues so far. Great aluminum casing and easy to adjust zoom and focus on it! 5Love it. Solid. Great image quality and build quality. 2 weeks tested. I was a bit skeptical at first but now I'm impressed. I hope it lasts. I installed it two weeks ago. It does feel very heavy duty and solid. It is a heavy camera and not a junky plastic type. It is all metal. You MUST loosen the two set screws to allow the maneuverability of the camera to function. Be careful as when you loosen the screws the pieces may come off so be prepared so it doesn't fall.Performance??Well, as soon as I hooked it up I saw it had a visibly wider range than my 2yr old Q-See cameras. SO I LOVE THIS feature.Second, the colors are definitely richer so the image is clearer.You have control over Zoom and Focus which is great BUT the Focus takes time to set up as it's touchy. Finally, seems less vulnerable to spider webs!!!Night recorder, it actually surpassed expectations again over my QSee cameras with more IR LED's. Just be careful not to have any object or obstacle too close to the camera such that the IR LEDs would reflect the IR into the lens.I will be buying more as they are even prettier than the QSee cams. 5
