Disk lost error
Have had the 4340 unit for less than 12 months and now am getting disk lost message and the power led is flashing instead of solid. Seems to be a common problem.
Purchased at JB Hi-Fi Retail Stores for $270.00.
It randomly stops recording.
It doesnt inform you that it has stopped recording.
You have to continually reset it.
It was fiddly to install, running cables in the wall.
Wireless more than likely a better option.
Clear picture and easy install however the hard drive now appears to have failed. Making a clicking noise and getting no signal. The unit is only 2 years old so I expected a longer life than that.
Basically functions but management and retrieval of footage terrible
For a start the remote management uses Active X controls. This means the management system will not run on modern versions of IE and not under windows 10.
The active X interface is extremely buggy. It is only good for configuration. It cannot be used to search or review recorded footage. Why even in 2015 active X controls were used for the remote management user interface is beyond me . . .
Trying to review recorded footage and do anything that involves fast access and the interface system crashes. The main system seems to keep running - th...
Complete waste of money and time.
Online manual lacks sufficient detail. Doesn't properly explain functions or features. Have a technical IT background and still had great difficulty setting it up. To top it off as soon as I finally figured how to use and configure it the main unit kept started freezing then continually rebooted. This problem could not be resolved. Unfortunately the 12 month warranty had already expired by the time I got around to configuring it. Unit will be dumped. Too light to use as a boat anchor.
Basic system with terrible features and non existant customer service.
I would have preferred to buy a different brand system. Sure this system records, but that's about all its good for. The mobile 'app' - Samsung galaxy phone, is useless. It is very difficult to set up and continually doesn't work properly. The user interface when logged in is also terrible. Looks like it has heaps of features but most don't work on my system, and some I don't know what they even do... I tried looking up in their user manual but that was no help at all - it is very basic and poorly written. I tried contacting the company and nev...er got a response. Apparently the system has motion sensitivity, so it will alert you if it picks up movement. Don't bother using it. Firstly, its extremely difficult to set up as you don't know what areas are selected and which are not, and secondly because it simply seemed to be extremely sensitive regardless of what settings I chose... It would send me hundreds of 'alert' emails when there was no movement at all - again I consulted the booklet and tried to contact the company for support but got no response. PS im quite technically minded and good with computers and technology in general, and I found this product extremely frustrating.
The Price is too high.
Compare with other products of the same category of surveillance systems, the price for this product is too high. I regret I bough it. Not worth spending money on this, and their Customer Service is terrible.
Needs notification and alert features
There is no alert or notifications of movement to your phone, other wise great Security Camera System.
Security camera DVR straight out of the box
I bought this system for a couple of reasons over others I saw. The first being it came with 6 cameras - 2 of which are internal cameras for our single story home. The build quality of the cameras is okay (cast aluminium although one camera came with a stripped thread meaning it would not be able to be aligned and would keep falling downward. A slight remanufactuing modification has this sorted.
The cameras come pre wired - and come with decent lengths of connection cable (18 metres) to run power to the camera and video back to the 1TB DVR. ...The install process is not hard - choose the camera location. Drill mounting holes and a larger hole for running the cable through and you're set. Cables are clearly marked which end is to the camera and which end goes to the DVR. A BNC connector (green) and power (red) are the only 2 wires needed for each camera. The job is fiddly for one running cables through ceiling spaces and using yellow tongue (an electricians trick) to get the cables through. Here a mate can really be of assistance. The BNC connection screws tightly together whereas the power just presses together. I'd suggest taping the power connections together to prevent accidental power plug disconnection at the camera end. It took a day to install the 6 cameras and connect to the DVR. Follow the basic install procedure and voila instant camera security as all came to life. Some system tweaks and minor adjustments and the areas covered are well seen - even at night with the built in infrared lighting (undesirables don't only work in daylight).
