Tiny is exactly what I needed
  Review by Anoop Patel (California USA) on Mar 26, 2016
Wanted an IP based security system to put in my wiring cabinet in my home. Recently renovated and ran new network wiring everywhere all terminating to the in-wall cabinet. This fits perfectly and runs cool (still had to make sure there was proper ventilation) in the cabinet. Now the hard drive and system is hidden away and I don't need to see any of the cabling. Of course POE helps reduce the cable mess as well which was super convenient.

Biggest drawback with my setup is that I almost 100% have to access the system using either the PSS browser or mobile apps. They work fine but not exactly ideal to adjust configuration and especially review recorded video. The direct interface to the system gives you the best and fastest results which is something I had to sacrifice since I use it remotely. I'm contemplating mounting an old monitor next to my cabinet just to make things easier if it starts to become a hassle.

Network setup wasn't exactly easy especially setting up DDNS since there seems to be a conflict between the website and the literature provided on disk. Ultimately I ignored both and checked out youtube and used a DDNS setup directly with my Netgear router and their partner no-ip. There seems to be several ways to do this which is nice but definitely confusing for first-timers.

One super annoying thing I can't resolve is placement of the camera positions in the quad view. I initially plugged all the cameras in randomly because my cabling wasn't identified figured I would adjust position either by interface or by swapping cables. Unfortunately, once it recognizes the cameras, it seems to semi-permanently map the cameras to the original positions. Doesn't matter if I move cables from one port to another or delete the cameras and re-add them or reset the entire system. Very strange and I know I can ultimately figure it out but it wasn't worth the additional time. My advice is to label your cables first and add them one at a time to the port position you want.

I added my own hard drive using Sec Cam King's recommended Western Digital "Purple" 2TB drive. It took me a while to find out that my first HD was bad and had to replace it with another which was recognized installed perfectly. These hard drives will be running 24/7 so expect them to fail eventually and need to be replaced every 3-5 years so knowing how to swap a drive is important.

It should be noted that this product seems to also be re-packaged by Q-See with their logo stamped on top bundled with cameras. The bundles seem like a slightly better deal if their configuration of equipment is what you need otherwise I prefer to order my system as I need it. I have to presume that setting up the Q-See system would be easier to setup with better instructions however.

4CH Tiny Network Video Recorder with 4 Ports of POE

I'm not very technical so it took a few tries to figure out the settings, but after I did the NVR does just what I needed. It has a surprising array of features for the price. I would definately buy it again and in fact I am considering a 32CH in the near future.

  Review by Chase Christopher on Oct 08, 2014
This is my first ever video security system. There have been too many "activities" going on my neighborhood lately that have ultimately convinced me to purchase a video camera security system. Instead of starting off with an analog system, I decided to go straight to a network system with an NVR because I feel more comfortable working with network/computer related devices. I am definitely satisfied with this NVR and would recommend it as part of a starter set-up especially.

There aren't a lot of "extras" that come with this NVR but then again, all I want is a great video picture (I don't need audio, alarms, etc.). The nice thing about this NVR is that it comes with it's own built in power supply for the cameras that can be sent over the camera network cables (Power Over the Ethernet). Once your cameras are mounted and your cables have been run, all you have to do is plug in the two power supplies, your Internet connection (usually to your own home router or modem) the cameras, and finally the monitor. Although Security Camera King doesn't sell monitors in their package kits you will still may want to purchase one. Since this unit has both HDMI and VGA hookups you can probably temporarily use a desktop computer monitor to set it up or if you want a permanent monitor for the system, I recommend you purchase that locally and catch them when they are on sale to get them at the best price. TV/monitors these days almost always have at least one HDMI input and usually a VGA as well.

The recorder works well and isn't difficult to operate or set up. I love this system because now I have instant access using my iPhone from just about anywhere. The video recordings are sharp and very good quality. Just make sure you order an internal hard disk drive large enough for your style of recording.

  Review by Luis Chavez on Sep 05, 2014
I ordered this NVR on-line and figured I would see it in about 2 weeks. I ordered it early in the week and received by the end of the week! I was, at the very least, impressed with the ordering and shipping aspect from Security Camera King. And not surprisingly, I was just as impressed with their product and their technical support. This is definitely a quality, trustworthy company that will always get my return business. Now for the specifics on the NVR.

For such a small unit, it's surprising that they could incorporate a Power Over the Ethernet unit within it, but I am glad they did. This means no need for external power supplies (injectors). All you have to do is mount the camera, plug in the Cat5 Ethernet cable to the camera and the NVR and once all four cameras are connected, plug the NVR into your network or an Internet provider using the RJ45 output jack and turn the NVR on. As a tip, it probably would be prudent at the least, to also get a surge protector/power supply strip for the NVR as the NVR does have two separate AC plug-in power supply adapters, one for the NVR and a separate one for the POE (they're included). You'll probably want to at least use a monitor to aim the cameras and set the system up, but if you are using this in your home you may want to have a permanent monitor anyway. I use the HDMI video output for my living room LCD/monitor (which is where my NVR is also located) and the VGA goes through the adjoining wall into my bedroom TV/monitor. The NVR has a GUI (Graphical User Interface) or OSD (On Screen Display) menu that allows you to configure the system, make adjustments, and operate the NVR. This interface is pretty straightforward making the NVR fairly easy to operate. After using it for a while, you'll quickly learn where everything is at. Finally, the videos are amazing. The sharpness, detail, and color is liking watching a DVD movie. I can see everything I need to see plainly and easily without question. Also, once you are hooked up to the Internet, you can use just about any Internet based operating device (such as a smartphone, blackberry, computer) to remotely view and access your system. Pretty sharp and not too expensive!

  Review by Nick Baracia on May 07, 2014
Security Camera King's 4 channel tiny network recorder is definitely cheaper than this model with the 4 port POE, but if you want a real low-hassle IP network camera experience this is the way to go. The added on POE (Power over the Ethernet) function makes this pretty much an all-in-one NVR. You simply mount your 4 POE capable megapixel cameras run a CAT5 Ethernet cable from the camera to the NVR and plug it in. When you are finished with all four cameras, plug the NVR (using the included CAT5 Ethernet cable) into your Internet Service Provider or network if you have one. The NVR basically takes care of all the rest. I actually purchased this unit for use on the perimeter of my home, which, as far a resolution is concerned, some people may thin it is overkill. But the quality of the video can't be beat, there is no guessing as to what you are looking at, and even far away objects can be easily distinguished as long as they remain in focus because of the incredibly high resolution of the picture. The NVR is small and compact which makes it great for home use and the fact that it still maintains Security Camera King's signature simultaneous remote users access via the Internet is what really makes it a plus for us. Both my wife and I use our iPhones to "check in" on our place often. Of course, since the unit is so small there is only room for one hard drive so it is best to beef up the size as much as possible. Using motion detection record can save a tremendous amount of storage space too. We like our NVR and the system as a whole and would gladly recommend it to anyone.

  Review by Wroblewski, Michael (Illinois USA) on Mar 07, 2014
I just wrote a review on the 4CH Tiny Network Video Recorder and that basically, as far as performance is concerned applies to this one too. The difference is that the creation and design of this NVR is Smart! The 4CH Tiny without the POE I purchased for work to replace one that we had purchased from some one else I while back that was a major fail. When I saw this one with the built in POE I said "I have to have that one for my home" and purchased for my use. The built in POE saves the hassle of messing with "just another piece of the puzzle" a 4 port POE switch. The NVR works really well and produces a surprisingly high quality, high definition (2 megapixel or 1080p) resolution video for each camera at 30 frames per second. We use this and four outdoor cameras to protect the perimeter of our home AND our yard. The megapixel resolution of the cameras makes this possible without any difficulty. I'd recommend this unit, after all, I purchased the first one for work and then recommended to myself to purchase this one for home!
