good iphone app

i like it comes with a iphone app so if when out working on cameras i just pull them up to look at them.

Excellent DVR

Own 3 of these DVRs for my businesses. One is an 8 camera DVR. Excellent equipment, easy to use and set up!

Good overall

As with any camera system backup takes to long.

Easy to hook up

Easy to hook up and utilize for "hard-wire" connection. Haven't attempted the on-line portion yet but anticipate no problems.
