Complete 16 Channel Ultimate Mini DVR Security Camera System
  Review by Dana Hudson on Sep 26, 2014
I'm not a professional CCTV installer but I play one on TV. I also slept in a Holiday Inn last night.

Seriously, this review is written by a non-professional so take it for what it is worth. Let's start from the beginning. We planned out how and for what desired purpose we wanted to use our 16 channel video security system and decided that this Ultimate Mini package would do the trick. We needed a DVR with a 16 channel capacity, we wanted D1 resolution at realtime, but we didn't need tons of audio connections, spot monitors, lots of internal storage or an internal DVD burner. So, ultimately (pun intended) we settled on this system.

As far as the equipment is concerned it's nice to purchase a "package deal" because Security Camera King thinks of everything that you will need and includes it for you. You don't really have to make sure you have purchased everything you need unless you require add-ons or extras (like microphones or more cable for example).The only thing they don't include in the system is cable fasteners, and that's understandable because everyone's situation will require something different. There also is no monitor, but since there isn't much difference between monitors and TVs these days you can easily obtain what you need locally.

Installation is easy if you can turn a screwdriver because that's all it takes to mount the cameras in most cases. The hardest part, as I am sure you've read in other reviews is running the cables and then aiming the cameras (I suggest you purchase one of Security Camera King's portable monitors, after climbing up and down ladders and running back and forth between camera and DVR to see if you guessed at the aim correctly, you'll wished you had.) Setting up the DVR isn't too bad. If you are new to this sort of thing, I must admit it will require that you invest a little time in learning the On Screen Display menu of the DVR but at the same time you'll be "floored" by all the things it can do. If you get stuck, you can always contact their technical support department and they are most willing to help.

Bottom dollar as a no-experience do-it-your-selfer, the system is a good quality system, the company is honest and dependable, and the technical support is great. I would definitely recommend them and will rate them at five stars.

  Review by Gall, Lou, See Them First Security on Aug 04, 2014
As a professional CCTV installer (independent contractor) with 15 years experience I have 6 of that dealing with Security Camera King. I can tell you that I can easily vouch for the quality and customer service of this company. Should you ever received an inoperable or damaged product, just call them and they will take every opportunity to make it right. As for the their technical support staff, they are obviously installers themselves because they know their products inside and out and can help you with just about any "unusual" situation you can conjure.

As for the Ultimate Mini package system, I just don't think you can beat it in quality, production, or longevity. The only problem I have with it is not with the system itself but the it's sister system the Elite Mini. I mean if you are looking for an economical system that doesn't require all the features of a full system DVR but you still want quality video recording, I wouldn't even consider the Elite anymore. Years ago the CIF used to be the standard for display resolution in security video cams, but with today's technology super systems with megapixel cameras and high definition displays are attainable. Yet, the standard (the best for the function versus price) I think is now the D1 recorder. Now the Elite can record in D1 but only at 7 frames per second where as the Ultimate can record at the same resolution but in realtime at 30 frames per second. And, for a 16 camera system, the Ultimate Mini is only $130 more than the Elite! SO for my customers, I only bother to mention the Elite if I have to because experience has shown me that the price difference is nominal for the extended quality of the Ultimate. Nice high quality video monitoring and recording, lot's of options, and still plenty of features. Can't beat it!

This is a nice package deal with a reasonable price. Security Camera King obviously developed this Ultimate Mini recorder with less options compare to the full size unit to achieve a less expensive unit. I can attest that they did NOT however, sacrifice any quality pertaining to video security recording and monitoring. This unit records the same great videos in D1 at 30 frames per second as the full size unit. The DVR is simply in a smaller, thinner case which doesn't have as much room inside as the full size unit does. Even though the cameras are simple, no OSD cameras, the 800TVL resolution on these cameras is great and they still do an excellent of automatically making adjustments to capture clear, sharp video. We are very satisfied with our 16 Channel D1 Mini package system and would highly recommend it to others.

Good gear at a good price. The Security Camera King techs are very helpful. The quality of the recorded video is unsurpassed by other "comparable" systems. This is one of those of "solid" deals you don't see too often, so I would rcertainly recommend it while it lasts.

I'm not sure what I can say that hasn't already been said but then again I've always been known as "wordy" so I'll give it a try anyway. This Security Camera King 16 camera Ultimate Package system is a nice multi-camera “enterprise” level type package. If you install this system yourself, I bet you’ll save at least $3000 to $5000 minimum, versus paying to have it installed. (I think a more realistic figure would be around $5,000 to $8,000 but I was trying to be conservative). You’ll like the details of the high resolution 700TVL cameras, especially when recorded at a D1 resolution, and the flexibility the varifocal lens and OSD (On Screen Display) menu give you is you choose to purchase cameras with these options. On the other hand, if you are going to install this system by yourself (alone) without a portable monitor, good luck! It’s pretty tiring and takes a long time to keep running up and down ladders and back and forth to adjust and aim the cameras without a portable monitor or at least a second person to help. The DVR unit works great. We record audio on a few channels and it does a good job maintaining quality video recording while integrating audio recording with it. These DVRs are actually designed so you can use them as “Security control Centers’ somewhat. They also have alarm inputs and alarm outputs (12 VDC relay) and the alarms can be integrated with the camera operation or to initiate totally separate devices. Meanwhile, you are not confined to one main monitor either. In our case, we use all three monitor output options, HDMI, VGA, and BNC. The HDMI has the added convenience of carrying sound so if you have a monitor with speakers or a newer LCD TV/monitor you can watch the video and listen to the audio through the same device. The DVR unit itself is thin (that's why they call it the "Mini" I think) but is still large enough to support 2 internal hard drives. It can also use external “USB" hard drives and that’s good because if you were to record all 16 cameras simultaneously and continuously, 24/7, it would take about 4 Terabytes of storage for seven days of recording although the 2 internal hard drives can hold about 6 TB total if you choose). My big favorite (as I imagine is also the favorite of many that own this system) is the remote access you can gain by using the Internet. All you have to do is plug the DVR into an Internet connection using a CAT5E cable and then follow the set up instructions (or call Security Camera King’s support staff for help) so you can eventually set it up to be accessed by your smartphone, personal computer, tablet, Blackberry, etc. You can even set the DVR up to e-mail you if a camera detects motion so you can monitor it as soon as you receive the notification. Finally, I’m no professional CCTV installer so I had a couple of stumbling points with the set up of our system. Security Camera King’s support department did an excellent job of addressing my needs and helped get me up and running fast. Those guys know their business, and I don’t think there is a security camera question that is too difficult for them. As you can tell, I’m a satisfied customer and this system and Security Camera King in general has earned a five star rating from me.

This is a good quality standard type 16 camera system with simultaneous recording on all channels at D1 at 30 frames per second. The industry standard for resolution used to be CIF but I think with the introduction of megapixel cameras and such the standard is probably now a minimum of D1, which this DVR seems to handle with no problem. The cameras are good but in reference to what I just said, heck why not make the standard package with 700TVL resolution cameras instead (without the need to upgrade if you want them). I didn't order the plug and play cables because for our application the 1500 foot length of Siamese cable had a better application. However, I do have to agree with a review I saw earlier about the BNC connectors. I have had my issues with standard crimp on connectors in the past (usually due to cheap crimping pliers or bad connectors) so they are not infallible, but I do like them even more over the "twist on" types included with the package. That's a petty thing compared to the quality of the video, the options in the DVR, and the package system price.

  Review by Cenendella, Marc (Texas USA) on Jan 14, 2014
I own 3 local gas station/convenience stores just outside the metro area and each of this has a 16 Channel Ultimate Mini DVR System in it. They work great! I've customized them a bit my bumping up the domes to 70oTVL resolution cameras and I have replaced two of them with 700TVL Varifocal bullet cameras. I use the domes in and around the store and register and the domes cover a total of 8 rows of fuel pumps outside. Right after installing one of the store's systems we had an attempted robbery that night. The cameras caught everything and the two guys were caught by the police within the next day. The idiots stood outside and put on ski masks to hide their identity because they new the store had camera protection inside. They stood right underneath and out of view of the bullets when they put on their masks, but apparently they didn't see the domes I had mounted in the eaves to cover the front of the store and the bullets! I've seen security video clips on the news and mine couldn't even be compared to those. First, the ones on the TV are usually black and white; mine were full, color correct, crisp videos. Second, the resolution on the ones I see on TV must be the lowest possible or their systems just aren't high quality, because I can tell you we (and the police) had absolutely no problem making full facial recognition on these two before the put on their masks. If you are able to run some wire and put a few screws in a camera base, you can easily install these systems yourself. If set up or configuration is a problem (or installation for that matter) Security Camera King has a very helpful and knowledgeable support team; don't be hesitant to contact them it will save you a lot of time and grief should you encounter a problem. I love this system as it works like a charm and I have not complaints about it. I would recommend it to others.

  Review by Nash, David (North Carolina USA) on Nov 25, 2013
I started my own business from the ground up, and still believe in playing a very active roll in the "hands on" tasks that we need to do, so I guess as far as a video security and surveillance system goes, I am a "do-it-yourselfer." I also did a lot of shopping and research before planning and purchasing my system. I actually started out at home improvement stores, checked out wholesale clubs, electronic stores, etc. Those systems seemed cheap enough in price, but they also seemed cheap in quality. I got a couple estimates from local professional security camera companies for a 16 camera system and installation and I figured I could save myself and the company a ton of money if I installed the system myself. Security Camera King had the perfect solution for me with their Complete 16 Channel Ultimate Mini DVR Security Camera System. I purchased the 700TVL higher resolution cameras and both hard drives. At first I thought I would be short on internal hard disk drive storage space, but I soon learned that with motion detection and timed recording I had plenty of space. I read the other reviews and many other system reviews and I took the advice to purchase a service model from Security Camera King too. I purchased the CCTV LCD Tester Tool-WLCDM3 and it was well worth the $150 dollars in price since it saved me from running back and forth to the DVR. I also must add that Security Camera King has a terrific technical support department and with their help anyone can install their own system.

This product does well. We are a little concerned with the twist on BNC for a commercial application but they would be great for the first time installer and easy to use.

  Review by Stebell, Frank (Colorado USA) on Aug 22, 2013
I purchased your Complete 16 Channel Ultimate Mini DVR Security Camera System, Product Number PACK-ULTIMATE-16-MINI a few months ago for my store. I wanted to wait a little while before commenting to see how it would really work. I can tell you that as of now I am still totally satisfied with its performance. I originally installed the system myself; the cameras are easy to mount by just inserting a few screws. Once they are mounted, the cameras can be adjusted for the proper angle of view by just moving them with your hands. The 600 TVL resolution is great. The plug and play cables worked well for me because they were long enough and already had the connectors fitted saving me the grief of crimping twisting or whatever. The DVR is loaded with features - so many that I can't mention all the ones I like here, but I will comment on some of the ones I like. I use an audio input (I purchased the microphone and wire from you separate from the system) on my cash register camera. The DVR records the video and audio extremely well. I use the HDMI output to my main monitor and it works great. I don't know a whole lot about resolution and pixels and such, but I can tell you the DVR records a very clear, fine, video and the color is very close to reality. Your on screen display menus make it very easy for the average person to set up or change settings on the system. Finally, the remote access feature is just incredible. I have an Android phone and I use your app to access my system when I am not there without any problems at all. To summarize, as I said in the title, I'm totally satisfied!
