Complete 4 Channel Federal 960H Mini DVR Security Camera System
  Review by Walt Volter on Dec 02, 2014
First, let me say that the Security Camera King customer support, from sales to technical, is fantastic, especially for a company on the net. The quality of the product is good too. Installation was relatively easy, the most tedious was running the cables/wires. However, the reason why I am rating this system at 4 stars instead of 5 is although everything works great, I’m not that impressed with the 960H format. I thought it would be a lot bigger than it is but I am good with a D1 or if I were gonna make the jump, I think I’d rather just go to megapixel instead. That being said, and I know it is my own personal preference, I give it 4 stars.

Not being a CCTV professional, I can't tell you how this package compares to any other brands but I can tell you that I am very satisfied with this one. So I guess I'll keep this review from the perspective and for the use of, do it your selfers. As far as quality is concerned let me say the video recordings are very good and I have had no mechanical or electronic problems with neither the cameras nor the DVR. Installation was much easier than I thought it would be. If you can hang a picture, you should be able to mount a camera. To be honest, the most difficult part of the installation was running the cables (where to put them, how to fasten them down, drilling through walls, etc.)

The DVR actually sits in the family room with the Genie TV DVR and it blends right in -- doesn't look like a security DVR at all. I was able to run a VGA cable to my bedroom, so I used the HDMI in HDMI port 3 of my TV and the VGA went to the TV in the bedroom. I'm using the 2 Terabyte internal hard disk drive option which gives a full 5 weeks plus for recording, all 4 cameras simultaneously, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. I will be switching to motion detection recording soon and I expect that amount of storage time to be much, much longer.

Since I am not a professional, I hit 1 or 2 stumbling blocks along the way. I contacted Security Camera King and spoke with the technical support staff. These guys are super! New exactly what I needed and solve my problems for me within a minute or two. I would recommend this package system as well as Security Camera King.

This is an excellent small scale video security system. The videos are without doubt, the best quality video security videos I've ever seen for a system in this category. The D1 resolution provides plenty of detail for me (in this case I simply use it for my home) and identifications of people, objects, and animals comes easy with the high quality 800TVL cameras. Considering the fact that this is a "Mini" system I didn't really expect many other features than basic color video recording but I was truly shocked (in a positive way) when I received my system and realized what all the DVR was truly capable of, even for a "mini." Furthermore, Security Camera King has a very helpful and supportive technical support staff. Any future purchases I make will be at Security Camera King. They have me convinced.

I started shopping for a 4 channel D1 system about a month ago. I actually started here with Security Camera King and then went to several other sites. I even found a couple that look like they might sell the same kind of equipment. There were a few key points that made me settle on Security Camera King for my 4 Channel Ultimate Mini system and I'm glad I did. First, the DVR comes with a 3 year warranty. Many dealers will guarantee their DVRs for 60, or 90 days to a year but anything beyond that you'll have to pay an extra charge for. The price is competitive, but I don't think you'll know that until you purchase the system and see what kind of quality you've got. I actually found even cheaper priced 4 channel systems but with all the features this one has and certainly not with 800TVL cameras. I had no problems installing the cameras, DVR, or the power supply and running the cables. After I got my cameras aimed and adjusted I started paging through the ON Screen Display menu (OSD) and got more familiar with it. From there I plugged my DVR into my Internet modem and I had remote access from my computers and tablet as soon as I downloaded the apps and software. Oh, and that's another thing, Security Camera King doesn't charge for the apps and software that allow you to access the system remotely while other dealers will soak you for a yearly licensing charge. There wee a couple of things I wasn't exactly clear on such as the audio inputs. I contacted the technical support department and one of their technicians not only helped me get things set up but explained to me how and why we were doing what we were doing along the way. I think it's safe to say I'm a Security Camera King customer for life.

You can't beat this for high quality video security in a small 4 camera high resolution system. The camera were easy to install and automatic. Nothing to do with them but mount them, aim them, and plug them in. The DVR is a an electronic wonder all its own. I can't believe all the features, functions, and options the recorder offers. Actually, it's more than just a DVR, it's more like a computerized video recorder. I particularly like the Internet connectivity so that you can remotely access any of your cameras and the DVR from just about any device that uses the Internet. Personally, I think this makes the perfect little mini system for use around the home.

I use this around the perimeter of my home office and it works pretty well. Seems to handle the extreme cold we get here as well as the summer days. I purchased my system about a year ago and upgraded the cameras to 700TVL. Can't beat the resolution and recording quality for the price. The D1 recording resolution at 30 frames per second does an excellent job and the cameras even produce a high quality video recording under infrared conditions at night. The remote access feature is fantastic. I can check on the outside of the building while in the comfort of my living room. I greatly appreciate the help I received from the support staff at Security Camera King. I never realized they would actually be able to help as much as they did.

I don't write a lot of on-line reviews but when I am impressed with a purchase or service, I will motivate myself to let someone know. In this case, Security Camera King nailed it on both the product and the service. I think that this has got to be THE 4 channel mini system. I upgraded my cameras to 700TVL (I figured I might as well since I was recording in D1 resolution) and the videos are excellent. I've seen copies of security videos on the news and other programs on TV and I have to think that either those videos are extremely old or the owners of those systems have no idea what Security Camera King has to offer. My video recordings are sharp, colorful, and clear and I don't have any problems identifying people's faces in them unless they are quite a distance away from the camera. Unless you need a system with a lot of extra features like lots of audio connections, internal hard drives, alarm connections, etc. this system has got to be one of the best 4 channel systems I've ever seen. The DVR works great, the cameras work great, and I have plenty of storage room on the available internal hard disk drives. I don't need audio or alarms. I am an amateur do-it-yourselfer and when I installed my system I needed a little help with the settings and the Internet hook up. I debated on whether to call Security Camera King's support department because I figured that was more for the pros or for questions about things that didn't function. Also, I don't know much about CCTV installation so I thought for sure they would be condescending toward me. The truth is, they were the nicest bunch of people and very, very helpful. I don't think you can go wrong with this system; I know I didn't. For that reason, I got to give the equipment and the support staff five stars.

This is a nice, small, compact, high quality D1 resolution recording system. I think when I installed this system I took advantage of just about every feature that I possibly could that was available, so its more like a security central command center for us. I did upgrade the cameras to 700TVL models because I figured that as long as we were recording in D1 resolution we might as well use as much detail as possible. The cameras work great! The plug and play cables are definitely quick and easy to use, but for 2 of the cameras I have more than 50 ft of plug and play cable that is coiled up because I didn't need it so I am not sure if I wouldn't have been better off using the Siamese cable and making customer lengths for the camera cable runs. I will add that the coiled up plug and play wire doesn't seem to cause any problems with reception, interference or anything like that. The HDMI connection option is very useful. Since most of today's "monitors" can be easily replaced by using an LCD TV/Monitor, the TV has speakers and the HDMI connection let's me hear the audio through the monitor. Even the alarm connections that are available are a useful feature. I was most impressed with the remote access function using my iPhone. I know there are apps for just about everything these days, but I didn't realize that so much could be done with the system, just by remotely accessing it with my smartphone. I bugged the guys at Security Camera King's technical support department a few times and I must say they were very polite, knowledgeable, and solved my issues for me. Definitely a five star outfit.

Quick delivery, easy install, and works great. The cameras work great and I am really impressed with all the programmable options on the On Screen Display with this DVR even though this is only a "Mini" system.

  Review by Al Robbins on Oct 03, 2013
These days, if you are looking for a suitable video security and surveillance system, I think that to consider one seriously, you'll want one that records in D1 resolution. In the days of older technology, CIF was acceptable because basically it was the best we had, but of course that is no longer true. CIF may still be fitting and work very well for some people, but something tells me most people are like myself and prefer something larger like D1. So if you agree on the analog resolution maximum as D1, then the next thing to consider is the frame rate. Security Camera King's Complete 4 Channel Elite Mini Economy System records in D1 but the best frame rate you can achieve is 15 frames per second. This frame rate isn't bad, but if you want realistic movement without the chance of choppiness or jerky video, 30 frames per second is the standard (also what Security Camera King calls "realtime" rate) and this system provides just exactly that. The only thing that this system is missing is a monitor and attachment hardware for the cables if needed. The system is compact yet very functional and very high in quality and performance. The recorded videos are extremely clear and sharp, and there is very little problem with color matching. The system comes with 600TVL cameras which is pretty good but if you want the very best analog type resolution and can afford it, I would suggest upgrading to the 700TVL cameras. As far as the monitor is concerned, you will need one for the initial install but after that, it really isn't a necessary component as you can plug the DVR into an Internet connection and gain remote access to the system via a computer, Blackberry, tablet, or smartphone. It's a pretty sleek straightforward system, and I do like it. I recommend it to others, especially neighbors and friends who want a good system for their home.
