    Have owned and used both Q-See and Defender systems, June 22, 2014

    Over the last 2 years I have owned and used both Q-See and Defender security systems. I’ve gotten familiar enough with installing and using them that I’ve helped a few friends pick out and set up systems of their own, and I’ve also helped two small businesses (one I do work for and the other we’re friends with the owners) buy and install systems of their own. These types of security systems work well enough that they can provide security camera recorded footage for a business, but are simple enough to install that a person can do so without professional help, in their own home.

    My husband is in law enforcement and we live right in the heart of the city he polices. We’ve found that not only have we needed security footage from our cameras in the past, but just having them helps as a deterrent. We don’t hide them. We want people to know they are up and if they mess with our house, our car, our UPS packages on our porch, etc, they will be on video.

    This Q-See logic comes with 16 channels. So you can have anywhere from 1-16 cameras hooked up at any time, and record footage from them. The set I have came with 8 cameras. I’ve found 8 is more than enough to cover everything I want to be able to see outside my home. We have two cameras mounted to the front of our garage, one on the back. We also have several mounted to our house. I have the DVR set up with a computer screen attached in our basement, everywhere our master bedroom is. One nice thing about that is it also facility like a window to the outside. When we hear a bump somewhere at night, all we have to do it look over at the screen and we can tell if it’s a deer outside, a tree branch, etc. But keep that in mine, you will need something to hook the DVR up to so you can view the footage from the cameras. It will record without being hooked up to a monitor, but if you want to see what you’re cameras are picking up, you will want to connect this to a TV or computer monitor.

    Here are a lot of similarities between the Q-See surveillance systems and the Defender systems. They both offer cameras that can withstand the elements and have night vision, and of course use a DVR to record everything. One of the main differences I’ve found between the two brands is their software. Each logic has a software program installed on the DVR so you can navigate through the settings and menus. Q-See and Defender have very different styles of software. But they are both simple enough to learn that a home user can navigate them.

    The cameras between the two companies vary a small in brightness and clarity. I find the Q-See cameras tend to pick up more affect, clarity and distance all through the day, and the Defender systems seem to do a small better at night. But the Q-See systems do record footage well in dark situations.

    I also find that when comparing the two, the Q-See cameras do better in low-light situations, at times, than the Defender cameras. Defender cameras seem to get their best footage if it’s either bright and sunny or pitch black out. Q-See cameras do just as well in low light as they do in bright light. An example of this is when it’s a dark grey rainy day, like it was here today. When it’s gloomy out, Defender cameras switch over to the night vision and record everything in black and white. But the Q-See cameras seem to be able to make a dark gloomy day look like a brighter day, and it continues to record everything in affect. So Q-See has strengths is low-light settings, and Defender has strong nigh-vision cameras.

    Whether you’re looking for a outstanding home surveillance logic, or a security logic for your small-medium sized business, this Q-See surveillance logic is up to the job. You can not only view everything that is going on, but it also records and you can download the footage to give to law enforcement if need be.

    An example of how helpful these systems can be, shortly after I installed my first logic two years ago, I had footage from my cameras used in court. It recorded a neighbor crosswise the road striking his next door neighbor’s chained up dog. Late one evening, my cameras recorded him going around his neighbors fence and throwing a stick at their dog and hitting it. Then he ran off back to his house. This same man then called the police and claimed that even as he was outside, he was attacked by his neighbor’s dog. We had the footage that proved otherwise. The dog never touched him and was cool and silent until the man chucked a large stick at him. He finished up being charged with filing a fake crash. Without that camera footage, no one but him and the dog would have known the truth.

    ORIGINAL REVIEW May 24, 2014:

    Oh what a disappointment! Wasted 6 hours on a gorgeous Saturday afternoon installing eight cameras, running the wires under our siding and then fighting with the DVR box to end up powering it down and giving up.

    Installing the cameras was really simple, so was running the wires since they are not very thick and were simple to stuff under the aluminum siding. My husband installed the cameras and ran the wires, even as I hooked up the DVR to a 19″ flat screen monitor, the camera cables and internet. I got it the DVR to easily connect to my network, but once I scanned the QR symbol for the iPhone app and some coupon came up I knew things were going to go terrible from here.

    I plugged in one camera and things looked fantastic. As soon as I plugged in the second camera the DVR rebooted and the QT-See logo with the message “logic initializing” come on over and over again. I went to the Q-See website for support and it stated to try plugging it another wall socket, surge protector, and opening the case and reconnecting the power the the hard drive. Nothing would work. The DVR just kept rebooting repeatedly. We were disgusted. So many hours working on this project to have it not work. At one point I tried the process of elimination and at one point disconnected the Ethernet cable and it finally stayed on for a bit. But after trying to set up the cameras for recording the DVR started rebooting again. Finally I disconnected the hard drive and it still kept rebooting and I knew something was incorrect with the motherboard.

    Now it just sits on the desk turned off. I sent an email to the company wondering what the issue might be, and hopefully I will will hear back from them. I can tell you that the link of times that I was able to see the camera screens the pictures were perfectly vivid and clear, too terrible it just did not last. I also want to add that the instructions are vague, especially the part for remote monitoring. The included CD would not auto run, I kept getting an error message. Even some of the websites that you are referred to in the instructions are inexact and are dead links (like the one to register for a mobile “my account).

    If this is something that is not fixable, I may consider just purchasing another DVR of another brand that will work with the cameras because it will be a pain the take the cameras and wires down especially since we drilled holes into the siding to mount them.

    UPDATED JUNE 4, 2014:

    So after numerous emails back and forth with customer support, I finally requested an RMA number to have the DVR replaced. They sent me the unit with a return mark for the defective unit to be sent back. When I took out the new DVR I was concerned because I could hear something inside rattling. I chose before wasting my time again hooking it up and not working I would open it up and check it out. Luckily it was only a plastic clip that had broken off all through shipment. But I did notice that the cables inside looked really different than the original DVR I had. They were thicker, bright red and seemed better quality. I connected the power, mouse, Ethernet, monitor and cameras and said a small prayer and crossed my fingers as I turned the power on. By golly it WORKED! I was able to connect to my network, view all my cameras and it stayed on…no constant rebooting.

    Now time to go to the Q-See Mobile app and see how the mobile attention worked. I opened the app, scanned the QR Code from the menu screen on the logic and the configuration of my network automatically uploaded into my iPhone 5S after I logged into my account. I really found that using my iPhone 5S was simpler to mark each camera and control the settings than using the menu screen on the DVR and monitor. I was able to view everything on my phone like I was standing in front of my monitor.

    In regards to viewing on the internet in the least, I was not able to get it to work with the UNuP option with my Netgear router (which has that option) but got it work with the DMZ setting. I could not open ports “85” and “6036” even though my router showed them open. With the DMZ setting enabled, you input the IP address of the DVR and set the DVR to not configure the IP address automatically but to keep the one showing. I opened the public IP address my computer showed under “canyouseeme.org” and after downloading a plugin file and logging in I could see my camera logic live! Just like the iPhone app I am able to configure and control all the settings.

    Next I tried setting up my husband’s iPhone 4S but that did not run as smoothly and simple. As a matter of fact I am still wondering how to do it. I watched a YouTube video posted by Q-See that suggests using an app called “aplayer”. I have not tried it yet.

    Now that everything is working…

    I absolutely like this manufactured goods, January 12, 2015

    Verified Hold(What’s this?)
    I absolutely like this manufactured goods. I used a qsee manufactured goods about 7 years ago that was a standard DVR w/ 4 cameras and it worked really well. So in my new house I got the 16 camera. I installed them over Christmas 2014 and they have been working perfect since.
    I did run into a few tribulations with one camera not giving me any indicate. I called Amazon and they said that if I wanted to return the manufactured goods I would have to package up the entire manufactured goods and send it ALLL back. I told them no way and that wasn’t feasible long report small I talked to a supervisor and she refunded me the amount that a single camera would cost. Amazon YOU ROCK!!! Awesome customer service. I then went through queen and the eventual sent me a replacement.
    Besides these small hiccups very thing is working fantastic and I would definelty recommend this manufactured goods to anyone looking.
