    Fantastic for carport surveillance!, June 9, 2013

    I bought this product because I was looking for a relatively low cost surveillance system to keep an eye on my downstairs carport in my condo complex. The challenge was that the condo rules do note allow me to mount anything on the out side of the building. With a small creativity on the application side, this product worked out perfectly. The camera is relatively small in size which was perfect. I was able to mount it on the window sill of my upstairs bedroom and leave the window cracked open so the night record tape was not distorted. I removed a small piece of the window screen so the camera had a clear view, and the system works like a champ! Very simple to set up with the wireless application. I had the remote viewing figure via Skype working in a matter of minutes from my IPAD and iPhone. I am a single female with intermediate tech skills and this system was very simple to install. I strongly recommend this product to anyone who is looking for a low cost high quality surveillance system.

    I read some not-so-fantastic reviews of this on Amazon and was a bit worried even though it received overall excellent ratings and reviews. Here is what you need to know…

    1. The range isn’t fantastic if you are going through several walls in your household. I can place 5-6 walls between the camera and receiver (the LCD screen) and it will stretch from one end of my household to the other (camera outside, TV inside), so about 60+ feet, and it works fine and I’ll see 2-3 out of 5 indicate bars (which indicate the indicate strength). But, I will see some interference with the receiver within a few feet of other electronics at this distance, under that 60 foot span and interference doesn’t seem to be an issue. Take a bunch of walls out of the equation and the range seems to go 100+ feet with ease.

    2. It’s a digital indicate so rather than getting a terrible picture when the indicate goes week you’ll either lose the picture or it would appear that the framerate drops. This is really a excellent thing since you still capture record (and audio) even without a perfect indicate. Overall, the framerate isn’t spectacular. It’s way better than most “caught on film” type surveillance footage we’ve all seen (I’m looking at you Pentagon 9/11 footage) but I’d guess we’re talking about 10-15 FPS at best? If the indicate drops it goes down to just a few FPS (roughly).

    3. You get a 2Gb SD card but you can use up to a 32Gb card to get up to (their claim) 60 or so hours of tape, at which point you can set it to overwrite the card and start over.

    4. The cameras capture audio VERY well. I could hear (while I watched) people walking 50-75+ feet away, you can hear cars coming long before they appear on your street, you can hear anyone walking or talking anywhere around the camera (50-75+ feet easily). You can push a button and talk back so that the camera outputs your voice to them as well, fantastic for a front door camera!

    5. The tape functions work well, but once tape you can’t do certain things like change the volume or change cameras. So if you set it to record you are stuck on whatever screen it is one (which will be 1 camera at a time or the 4 camera tear screen). It’s simple enough to stop/start tape if you needed to change something but seems odd not to let me adjust the volume while tape. If you set it to use the motion record then this isn’t likely to be an issue for you.

    6. The motion sensor does have some limits so it would be fine for anyone close to your household/camera but things across a street (for example) don’t seem to trip it. This makes sense, it’s really the same technology as a motion sensing security light so until you are relatively close it doesn’t trip the sensor.

    7. The night vision works fantastic and it seems to light up a decent area. It normally shows up in color but night vision will be black and white as usual. In all cases, the picture is very excellent, very clear. On that note, it’s a 640×480 image the cameras send back. Not exactly HD, but pretty excellent for what it is.

    8. Setting it up couldn’t be simpler and this is one of the few items that truly is plug and play. Plug in the camera power. Plug in the TV power, flip the TV to on. You’re done. It’s all paired and just works.

    Overall, this thing is awesome and for the price you can’t beat it. I’d highly recommend this for casual surveillance of your household, like watching front door, checking for package deliveries, keeping an eye on a normal sized front yard area, etc.

    Fantastic picture quality but questionable security, February 21, 2013

    Vine Customer Assess of Free Product (What’s this?)
    The Lorex LW2731 package comes with a 7 inch full colour LCD monitor and one security camera. The monitor is a bit on the small side coming in at 7 inches but supports up to 4 record feeds. The camera is also a tad on the largish side measuring around 4 inches (much larger than a webcam) but has built in LED lights for explanation.
    When I received this unit I thought I would set up the camera at the front of my household on the porch extend beyond pointing at my front door. This proved to be a bit of a pain in that both the camera and the monitor require mains power (no battery option). The power adapter for the camera, although it has a honestly generous amount of chord, was not enough to place the camera everywhere I wanted so I had to rethink. Another problem with this is that you end up having to drill a hole through your wall in which to place the power cable, so not a quick simple solution.
    This leads me to another point. If a thief or whomever is determined to break into your household, then its a very simple case of just having to snip the wire and the camera won’t work. It would have been much better for the camera at least to run off batteries.
    The wireless part of this unit is the record feed from the camera to the monitor, not the monitor to your home arrangement. You have the skill to view the camera feed over skype (a excellent option) so that you can see your record feeds from anyplace, but in order to do this you must hook the monitor into your computer (cable supplied) and leave your computer in succession all the time (you must also remember to turn off power saving features on your computer).
    The record quality that the camera transmits is exceptional. Better than some of the security camera footage you see on the news and the camera works very well whether in bright light or with the aid of the built in LEDs and sensor at night.
    The range of the wireless feed seems to be excellent. I couldn’t find anyplace in my 3 tale household everywhere I couldn’t pick up the record feed, even when I placed the camera in the top corner of a bedroom on the top floor and took the monitor down to the opposite corner of my bottom floor, so it was travelling a honest distance and through a lot of wood and concrete.
    If you are thinking of buying this unit to monitor the outside of your household (which I reckon most people would), then be prepared to have to do some work and drill holes in your walls to do this. Also be prepared to have to rethink everywhere you wish to place the camera due to the power cables length. This is a major shortcoming of this unit in my opinion.
    If you are just looking to monitor the inside of your household or small business then this unit will work fantastic, with the addition of some extra cameras.
    Overall then, a excellent security system once setup but has some honestly huge flaws.
