4 Camera Elite Series NVR Megapixel Security Camera System
  Review by Percy Jarell, DigiBit Industries on Mar 31, 2014
This is rather ironic in a way, but we purchased this system to protect our larger server room. So he have a network based system protecting the network. However, we have made one exception that makes this idea stand out from all the rest. Our IP network megapixel video camera system has all of its cables and even the NVR hidden from plain view and are located in a different room with a different dedicated Internet line. This may seem a little excessive to some, but our server room IS our business. Should someone break into the server room and steal information, make use of it in an unauthorized manner, or try to cause damage physical damage to the network or even this video security system, we want absolute protection. True they could damage the cameras in extreme cases but that is about it.

We like the system very much. The 1.3 megapixels cameras show detail like we would have never expected from a video security camera system. This particular NVR can actually handle 4 1.3 megapixel cameras or even 4 1080p resolution cameras so we may consider upgrading the cameras at some point in the future, but for not they really are sufficient. We don't utilize any sound or sound recordings but we do make use of the alarm connections in a variety of ways, the most obvious of course is the trigger on the server room door. The multiple monitor display option is also useful for us as we can run one line to IT and the other to Security. The system seems to be working well with out any difficulties. I'll give it some time and check back in a few months. For now I'll rate this system at four stars but if it continues to function like it has so far over the next several months I'll come back and change that rating to five stars.

  Review by Jeff Daly on Feb 12, 2014
This is a nice "starter" package if you need more than 4 cameras and if 4 cameras are enough to satisfy your needs (at least for now) this system has just about everything you need except the Internet or network. Megapixel resolution camera captures far exceed the quality of typical non-megapixel cameras so there really is no comparison. The system is relatively easy to install, the only part that maybe be challenging is configuring everything with your network, but Security Camera King has even made that easy. Furthermore, if you have any bumps in the road during installation or operation Security Camera King has an excellent support staff that will be able to solve your issues promptly and easily. Now that I have seen the clarity and definition of a megapixel system I'm addicted and doubt I will ever go back to the TVL based system again. The extra cost is certainly worth the quality and detail found in the video recordings. Including the POE switch is smart because it's needed (unless you already have one for some reason or intend to power each camera locally) and makes the package all the more complete. I would definitely recommend this to potential buyers.

  Review by Kevin Bairde on Jan 10, 2014
We placed our order for the 4 Camera Elite Series NVR Megapixel Security Camera System on line and received it in just three days. The system was packed properly and received no damage in shipment. Installing the system really isn't difficult, the key being knowing where to mount the cameras for the best coverage. As far as the actual installation is concerned all we had to do was run the CAT5 Ethernet cable, screw the cameras down, and plug in the cables. Set up isn't that difficult as the NVR does most of the work for you. What really sets this system apart from all the rest is the type and amount of features available on the NVR. First and foremost, there is plenty of room for internal hard disk drive storage or a combination of more than one internal hard disk drive and an internal DVD burner. In addition there is a full complement of additional features including alarm inputs, bidirectional audio (two-way) and 4 USB ports to connect a mouse or over interface device plus external CD/DVD burners, hard drives, etc. There's even an eSATA port for external hard disk drive support so storage potential is not even an issue for this machine.

The cameras work great. I actually purchased additional cameras and a another switch and run a total of 7 cameras at 720p resolution at 30 frames per second, continuously. The video created by the cameras is well defined, sharp, and color correct. The black and white infrared mode is just as well defined and sharp. We haven't had any issues with Security Camera King or problems with the system and we are very content with this one and may be discussing the idea of purchasing another one soon as we expand.

4 Camera Elite Series NVR Megapixel Security Camera System Works Well!

  Review by Parks, Russel (Pennsylvania USA) on Nov 21, 2013
This system works very well, was fairly easy to install and I have no issues with the quality of the system. The NVR is powerful, records very high quality video, and has a lot of bonus features. Actually the NVR can handle recording a total of 8 1080p resolution cameras at real time rates (30 frames per second) or 16 720p resolution cameras at real time rates. There is plenty of room inside the NVR case for several internal hard disk drives for storage and an Internal DVD burner. In fact the only negative that I see for this system is that the equipment seems a bit mismatched. I guess if you only need a 4 camera system with a powerful NVR that has all the features this one has it makes sense but otherwise the "package" could use a little improvement. I'll list what I noticed that could be improved upon:

1. This is a very powerful and high quality NVR however wither the cameras offered should be increased or the NVR seems like overkill. The NVR can handle up to 8 cameras at 1080p resolution and 30 frames per second video rate so why not offer 8 cameras (and possibly at 1080p) instead of the 4 at 1.3 megapixels? Actually if you are going to use the 720p resolution the NVR can handle a total of 16 cameras. I checked your 8 camera NVR systems and the only package deal offered is the "mini" system.

2. I know you are only offering 4 cameras with this system so the 4 port switch makes since but since the potential of the NVR is much greater I would suggest putting an 8 port switch in this system.

3. Also, for our specific application, the 4 100 foot patch cables are far too long because our entire building is pre-wired for CAT5E. It would be nice to be able to custom order the size and number of the patch cables.

I know you have the "Custom Built Package" option and that is great, but I just thought I would mention this to let you know.

  Review by Jacob Shigo on Oct 04, 2013
This is a very nice system that is value priced and high in quality. Before I go any further with my review, let me add this one tip. Plan for your video footage storage accordingly before you make your final purchase. I suggest you plan on purchasing enough internal hard disk drive space to do the job plus an additional 25%. Don't bother with trying to get a deal on a (or many) hard drives that you will have to install separately. Security Camera King's internal hard disk drive prices are very reasonable and they basically install them for free, you just pay for the hard drive. Novices will often see a hard drive advertised for an equivalent capacity but half the price and figure they can install that to same them a little money. The problem is, most of the time this separately sold internal hard disk drives are designed for computer use and may only have a spin speed of 5400 RPM which is not fast enough for NVR standards. You've got to have a minimum 7200 RPM drive and that's why purchasing yours from Security Camera King is the best solution. They will only use the proper equipment that is needed. Also, if you intend to use more than four cameras make sure you purchase additional POE switches to accommodate the total number of cameras you intend to use (including the 4 camera POE switch that Security Camera King includes in the package).

The NVR and the cameras both work great. The NVR is feature loaded and can truly handle cameras with a much higher resolution rating than what is included in the package so upgrading to higher resolution cameras may be another option you may want to consider. I had no problems installing the cameras or the NVR and remote access works like a charm from all of the devices that we use. One extremely nice benefit of purchasing your package from Security Camera King is that they provide your remote access by computer software, or smartphone or tablet apps, for free. This is definitely a five star system.

  Review by Fischer, Cindy (Nevada USA) on Sep 18, 2013
It appears as though this is the top of the line for 4 Channel IP Network NVR systems for Security Camera King and I can see why. There are so many likeable features in this system that I'm honestly not sure where to begin. First, for the home users and small business users that do not have a "net work system," let me reassure you don't need a complex network system to use this NVR system. A simple broadband connection to the Internet and a router will work, even if you are using the included power switch. The cameras have a standard look and design to them that makes them look like ordinary analog security cameras but of course they aren't. The resolution of the included cameras (you can always upgrade if you want by going to the Custom Built system page at the beginning of Security Camera King's "Systems" listings and changing items) are 1.3 megapixel IP Indoor/Outdoor IR Dome Network Security Cameras. These cameras will record at 30 frames per second at a maximum resolution of 720p which works great for me because at this resolution I can actually use a total of 8 cameras instead of four and still get real time recording rates at a 720p resolution. Should I get the urge in the future, I always have the option of purchasing camera with a high resolution rating (nice feature). The cameras work well with a whole set of their own features including good low light sensitivity (0.1 LUX in color and 0.005 LUX black and white) and of course infrared mode capability with on-board IR LEDs that give the camera a range in total darkness of about 60 feet. The cameras mount easily and all you have to do once they are mounted is aim them correctly and set them up for use on the network. The Network Video Recorder does an excellent job of coordinating signals and recordings from the cameras over the network. It comes in a huge 2U case so there is plenty of room inside for extra internal hard disk drives so you can do continuous recording at high resolution if you want. It actually has a maximum of up to 24 TB of internal storage (that could increase as technology increases too). I don't require that much storage for my business so I ordered the amount we needed and had Security Camera King install the DVD burner. The NVR plays back while it is recording and taking on network users so it packs a lot of processing power. The videos are extremely clear and detailed, and I have noticed no dropped frames nor have we had any problems with crashes or needing to reboot. I would consider this system to be above a starter system because of the complexity and amount of features that it offers. Installation isn't incredibly difficult, but it is more involved than that of a DVR based system.

  Review by Randy Jude on Aug 13, 2013
This is a very good 4 channel NVR system with 1.3 megapixel (720p) resolution cameras. I have purchased this system for my second store that I just opened. When I opened my first store, NVR based systems weren't available yet so I had an 8 channel TVL based system installed. I must say that depending on your application, since the resolution and therefore the detail and clarity of the video is so much greater, that you can easily get by using a 4 channel NVR system in place of an 8 channel TVL system. In my case this works anyway, and I have 1 camera for each system at the cash register/checkout counter and the differences in detail and clarity between the older system and this NVR system is astounding. Not only is the video fine in detail but it is sharp, smooth (no blurs or jaggedness) and it right on with the color. The NVR has lots of room for recording, burning DVD copies (if you opt to have the internal DVD burner installed) and many other options that are just too numerous to mention here. The Graphical User Interface (GUI) kind of reminds me of a Windows Explorer type system so learning to use it is easy. The only difficult part is getting used to know where the parameters are (on what page for example) that you want to adjust. Over all the price to value ration is great and I have had no problems with this product at all.

  Review by Randy Silkes on Jul 19, 2013
The quality on this system is amazing and the price is quite a deal. We purchased this system about 3 months ago and have been using it continuously ever since. I mounted the cameras myself, ran the CAT5 Ethernet cables and set the system up in our server room (including the rack mounting of the NVR and POE switch).

This system comes with everything you need for a complete system. The included 1.3 megapixel cameras do a good job of producing a quality color or black and white video. This NVR can actually record up to four 1080p (2 megapixel) cameras at a frame rate of 30 frames per second so it would be nice to see a system with 2.0 megapixel cameras included. Nonetheless, these cameras work beautifully and I am really impressed with the quality of the video in their infrared mode.

The internal DVD burner is nice to have or making copies, etc. and it is well worth it to have it installed for such a low price of $37.95. The NVR unit is loaded with a lot of useful features. We are very satisfied with this system.

  Review by Kip Jaargen on May 28, 2013
This is a very nice network based security camera system and I suppose to be correct I should be writing this review under the "Custom Built Security Camera System" page. However, we actually started with this system in mind and liked everything about it. The only thing we changed was that we upgraded our 1.3 megapixel cameras to 2 megapixel or 1080p resolution cameras. I can't say enough, how impressed I am. First, the installation isn't really difficult, so to install one of these network systems you don't have to be some sort of computer or network technician. Besides, we encountered a couple of stumbling blocks along the way and Security Camera King's support department helped up overcome them fast and effortlessly. The NVR is amazing. It has a capacity to coordinate the recording from 16 different cameras at once but that is at a much reduced resolution than 2 megapixels. It maxes out with 4 cameras at 1080p at 30 frames per second. The best word I can think of to describe the quality of the recordings and displays is "rich." The details are incredible, the color is a very good match, and we have not encountered any hesitation in the fluidity of the recording, no dropped frames, no interference, and haven't even bogged down the network or been kicked from the Internet. The whole system works smoothly and well. This full size NVR has plenty of room for extra storage should you need to purchase additional hard disk drives and it also has room for a DVD burner. We chose to do both; we purchase extra storage space and the DVD burner. I hope we never really have to use this system at all, but if we do the local police should be really impressed with what we'll have to offer. Excellent piece of electronics.

There are so many likeable features in this system, that I'm not sure where to begin. First let me add that you don't have to have some fancy business type network to use an NVR system, a simple broadband connection to the Internet and a router will usually suffice, even if you are using the included power switch. The cameras have a standard look and design to them that makes them look like ordinary analog security cameras but of course they aren't. The resolution of the included cameras (you can always upgrade if you want by going to the Custom Built system page at the beginning of Security Camera King's "Systems" listings and changing items) are 1.3 megapixel IP Indoor/Outdoor IR Dome Network Security Cameras. For whatever reason, the 1.3 megapixel cameras especially, have a notorious characteristic of not recording in real time at their advertised resolution but usually at half the frame rate which means 15 frames per second. These cameras will record at 30 frames per second at a maximum resolution of 720p which works great for us because at this resolution we can actually use a total of 8 cameras instead of four and for our purposes, the 720p resolution is detailed enough for now. When the technology decreases prices like it usually does, we can also increase our resources later. The cameras work well with a whole set of their own features including good low light sensitivity (0.1 LUX in color and 0.005 LUX black and white) and of course infrared mode capability with on-board IR LEDs that give the camera a range in total darkness of about 60 feet. The cameras mount easily and all you have to do once they are mounted is aim them correctly and set them up for use on the network. The Network Video Recorder does an excellent job of cooridnating signals and recordings from the cameras over the network. It comes as a huge 2U case so there is plenty of room inside for extra internal hard disk drives and if you do continuous recording at high resolution you might very well need it. You can pack up to 24 TB of hard disk storage inside. We don't require that much storage so we ordered the amount we needed and also had Security Camera King install the DVD burner. The NVR plays back while it is recording and taking on network users so it packs a lot of processing power. The videos are extremely clear and detailed, and I have noticed no dropped frames nor have we had any problems with crashes or needing to reboot. If you are looking to obtain an IP megapixel system this is a great starter kit and I don't think you will be disappointed.
