    Vine Customer Review of Free Manufactured goods (What’s this?)
    The Q-see unit basically acts your DVR box for home security and I have it hooked up to some Defender external cameras. The unit is very simple to set up, automate and record. 500 GB is a nice size hard drive which will allows you to record quite a bit of video. You can choose which cameras you want recording, and receive email alerts.

    The user interface is not as simple to use as say your cable DVR box but I was able to get it working with to some extent of a learning curve. The advanced motion detector recording was to some extent wonky and inconsistent with my setup but it was not a function I wanted to use so I didn’t spend that much time with it.

    Otherwise, you have lots of features to choose from and if you need a DVR surveillance recording unit, this could be a fantastic choice.

    This review is from: Q-See QS494-5 4 Channel H.264 Smart Recording DVR with Pre-Installed 500 GB Hard Drive, Black (Electronics)
    After having the front bumper stolen off my car (who does that?), and learning my ancient Samsung DVR froze up, I chose I needed an upgrade.

    I must have done this sooner. Setup is a snap, the DVR includes a mouse and the User Interface is simple to navigate. Wireless Monitoring setup has a few different options, just take your time and follow the instructions. I like being away from home and being able to check the cameras around my house. The motion detection logic is designated via a grid of 15x 15 (IIRC) squares that you can select to indicate motion detection area. This way, you can place something like a sidewalk or road out of motion detection. You can also adjust sensitivity between a level of 1 – 10. Motion detection facility decently in low life, but I would recommend cameras that handle your night vision needs to accompany this DVR.

    I setup a free e-mail address with Outlook.com strictly for the motion detection e-mail notifications, and because the Outlook Android app supports “Push” notification. Within 15 seconds of motion detection, my phone beeps at me and notifies me of a motion detection message. The snapshot that the logic takes is in attachment form, but it’s usually less that 10kb, so it downloads very quickly.

    The Q-See android app facility well. You log in to your router’s public IP with the specific port you designate. You save your login information so here’s no need to enter passwords over and over. Here is only a 1 – 2 second delay in the live video feed over Verizon’s 4G network.

    You can also view live feed from any computer with an ActiveX compatible browser.

    I used a 4-port Network Extender from Netgear to make an access point for everywhere I installed the DVR. This way, you don’t need to install the DVR next to your modem or router if the location isn’t best for you.

    Sure, I probably went a small overboard here, but I tell you–I sleep a lot better at night.

    Pretty excellent – Would Recommend, July 13, 2013
    This review is from: Q-See QS494-5 4 Channel H.264 Smart Recording DVR with Pre-Installed 500 GB Hard Drive, Black (Electronics)
    I am only giving this 3 stars because of the documentation and setup issues I had. The manufactured goods facility well and I do like it. It looks like the engineers wrote and reviewed the documentation. They really need a excellent RAS engineer to evaluate here products before they release them.

    I got this manufactured goods to attach to the composite video output of a Legrand On-q Category 5 Camera Module CM1011 which provides composite video out. (the yellow video wire that plugs into the composite input of your TV) First the documentation was not clear that this would work and it was hard to get the support folks to give me specifications as to what input this recorder would accept. But for the record it does work and this is the required input.

    I tried this unit with both a Visio TV and a RCA TV for the monitor. Here is a problem with the remote control for the unit as it uses the same frequency as the Visio TV and here is no way to change the remote frequency. Luckily you won’t use it anyway. You will use the mouse (which comes with it) to interface to the unit. The remote did not interfere with the RCA TV.

    I use this manufactured goods and view the camera’s via the internet and in the least. Here design is nice but it is a small pushchair. I am using this so that I can view the cameras and the recordings in the least using a windows browser via a URL and using an Android Tablet. Here are several issues with doing this.

    The QSEE Initiation Guides are pretty excellent but they need some clarification editing. This is everywhere they could use a excellent RAS (Reliability, Availability and Serviceability) engineer.

    1. They permanently reference Internet Explorer in the guides as the browser. This browser IS REQUIRED as you must download their addon for the remote viewing to work. This means that Firefox, Chrome or other browsers will not work. I never use Internet Explorer. So I was using Firefox and tried Chrome, before I finally figured out that this would only work with IE and then download the Activex add-on. Very irritating. took me quite awhile to realize this. I also means you can NOT use your browser on you Android tablet to access the VCR. You must use their app. The IE browser facility better than the app. Sometimes the app crashes.

    IE is the only browser that has native support for ActiveX addon’s. You can down load a Chrome extension that will support Activex. Firefox does not support ActiveX because it opens the door to security violations on your logic. Microsoft warns of this on their Safety and Security Center. […] Qsee needs to find a way around using an ActiveX add-on.

    2. In the Remote Monitoring Quick Initiation Guide, you will want to setup a Dynamic Domain Name Service if you IP provider changes your IP address regularly. I did not realize that I need to add the port address behind the DDNS url when accessing the DVR. They must show an example ie: name.myq-see.com:85. I thought the url was all I needed and not the port also.

    3. The Android app keeps resetting the More setting for WiFi and turning it off every time it is loaded.. Finally figured out that before I do anything with this app I need to turn WiFi back on. It will not work if I turn it on after I get a failure.

    4. On the locally attached monitor and using the mouse I just double click on the playback record list and it plays it back. This does not work on the remote playback list on the browser or android app.

    Overall a nice manufactured goods.
