ONWOTE 16 Channel 4K 8MP Smart AI PoE Security Camera System 4TB, Face Recognition/ Human/ Vehicle Detection, (16) Outdoor 4K 3840* 2160 PoE IP Camera, 16CH NVR 2 Storage Bays, 16-CH Synchro Playback
WHAT WE LIKED MOST:
The original quality of the camera video. However, the viewing angle is nowhere near 105 degrees rather it is closer to 90 degrees, which has forced me to reconfigure the planned camera layout. When it arrived, everything looked great, the packaging was not damaged. I have looked for a way to get it replaced, but it appears I may have to send everything back because I am not finding the option anywhere. I have had other camera systems, but this one was significantly more expensive. I have not had it for quite some time, but I do not think that it is worth the price yet. I will be considering it when I go through settings and realize if there is true value I cannot see yet. Updated the 05/21/2020 I have been contacting the customer support team to resolve my issues and am incredibly impressed. Onwote is nothing but patient, responsive, and very active in solving the issues. They were able to send me a replacement remote, and I got in contact with the R andD team to ensure a camera with the correct viewing angle was sent. I was informed that the change in model year caused the confusion and provided me with replacement cameras for the two most important cameras in my system. They used to update the specification details on their product, so that customers aspiring to be meticulous will have no problems. Even with the hiccups, I can see myself purchasing products from this company in the future.
I purchased the Onwote 16 channel camera with eight dome domes for security and an Onwote PTZ with audio, pan, tilt, zoom, and autofocus to view my Purple Martins from my desk. All of the cameras are high quality video and very easy to play back. I can see squirrels running in the tree line 400 feet from my house. I would prefer not to install battery packs that I could not change out due to a WiFi connection. I chosen the RJ45 camera. It was very simple to install. The other one is small enough to go around in the attic. None of us have previous experience with attaching cameras or using wire. In two hours, they had the nine cameras in communication. After four months, one of the dome cameras stopped working. It was determined that the camera was not working, as the Support person suggested some things to check. I was able to install a new camera two days later and did not find any issues. All of my cameras are working well. Onwote backs up their equipment.
I have installed probably twenty to twenty or 25 video systems over the years, both on the job and at home. I do not own any stock. I am merely an humble user. The system is the easiest and best quality to install, but it has several other pluses that casual users do not see. 1) The camera is the easiest to use with a bridge communication. As long as the remote bridge is working, the unit quickly recognizes the camera and it's online. We have several bridged. It is the best Android accessible app and layout that I have ever used. Once the system is connected to a network cable, it is able to quickly access the internet. It is not required to program IP on a secure network. If you scan the barcode provided in the app, the task is done. I enjoy this awesome video. The most important element to me is that Onwete Support responds to my questions in email or call within a day with high quality answers, working and understandable. It has happened on approximately ten occasions in the last three years without failure. It is rare that professional security video companies that offer that level of expertise are worth your time and effort. I have experienced similar experiences with the big boys too. I have made myself feel like a valued customer. It's warm in the cold world of today.
The installation process was easy, you get everything you need in the package, besides maybe a screw gun, and a monitor for playback. The cables are sufficiently long to reach just about anywhere. The cameras were plug and play, had great looks and decent sound. They can be difficult to grasp. All you desire is to locate them. The second installation required a detached garage. I needed to route some of the cameras through a network switch that is connected to a router rather than directly to the NVR. The Onte support staff was extremely helpful in showing me how to connect it, and how to make the cameras recognize the system. This time we opted for the 4K version and the image is incredible. I do not have a fourK monitor to view it but it is very detailed and crisp. The audio system is good once again. This installation also had outside cameras. I was amazed at how much IR light these things emit, and incredibly light the image at night. The clarity and viewing distance are excellent. The angle in the field of view is just right. I have connected my NVR to the internet and downloaded the app, and have no problems seeing my cameras from wherever I go. I can playback video from a month ago, without even being in the same state. The cameras are easy to operate with these systems. I have not had any complaints, therefore I would recommend them to anyone looking for a simple but reliable solution.

This was a replacement for a webcam that I had running through a computer with software. The computer went down and I was looking for a more stable system with more cameras and of course inexpensive. I have had this system running for nearly two months. I have a one TB drive and I believe it provides enough space for my needs. At the moment I have five cameras on it. Four are included with the program and my previous webcam. I am running only motion detection and not constant recording. I still have half the drive space left after two months. The motion sensitivity is still very sensitive, even at the lowest setting. I think it is just constantly recording. At the time of purchase the cameras were 900TVL and now they are 720p. The cameras I own are not high enough quality to capture a license plate number beyond 30 feet. The new 720P cameras they offer may be better. IR range is decent, but when the lights are on they attract insects during warmer weather. I really like it but it's better than the previous model it's great for entry level. Therefore you will be given a lot of recordings of bugs if you are doing motion detection. It is a learning curve. Whether a foreign company translated your translation is accurate or not. If you play with it enough, then hopefully the bell will light up in your head and you will know exactly what each setting does and how to set it up to your liking. I have found that in order to install the software from their website and to set up the motion area when setting up motion detection you have to run IE as administrator. You can usually do that by right clicking or by shifting to the right or left or clicking on the Internet Explorer icon. If your camera is pointed at a street light, it may never go to black and white IR mode at night. An inconvenience is that my cameras are 900TVL and have a four:3. The web interface defaults to 16:9, so I often have to change it back to 4:3. You can take a snapshot and save it as a bitmap as you examine a recording in a 4:3 ratio. The snapshot is sixteen. In my opinion, the recording will be in a sixteenbit format, which will result in a conversion to four and three while viewing. It should not be an issue with 720p cameras because daylight saving time is necessary each year. You will have to enter the date and time each year. There is no option to synchronize to an external time server. The time has drifted by one to two minutes now. The configuration GUI is very dated but it works and the smartphone app is a battery hog on one of my Android devices. This is a decent starter package that has everything you need however if you are not technically inclined you will need some assistance to get it set up and get all of the features out of it, especially with the newer cameras.
I got this unit and installed it because I am disabled, and want to be able to see around the house instead of getting up every time the dogs barked. I believe it is a good night vision, as well as a lovely color.
Make sure that you go through every menu option. This is in 960 H instead of 720 P. I am not able to read plates across the street, however I can quickly identify my neighbors when they come on the screen. This connector consists of a BNC connector that can be used for each one. The application is easy to install and setup, however it tends to time out a lot. My only argument is that you cannot change the actual DVR settings via the app. I do have an app on my tablet that allows me to change these settings. I don't know who the guy in the Dodge is, but he decided my driveway was as good as any to spend time in. Then we all get to see how the cameras are. This picture is slightly zoomed in via the phone viewer. I parked my Jeep during a normal day. If someone returns, you would see their plate 100%. It was an excellent job for the cost. This system does support 1080P cameras but I have not purchased any yet to test that function. Annke advised me that you can also connect newer IP cameras to the system. I cannot verify it, but I did go through the setup in the menus and it appears very straight forward.
I am not a paid reviewer, so this is gaining value. This is a great system for a great price. If you're attempting to decide between a wireless camera system and a wired camera system, remember that the wireless cameras still require you to run power wires to each camera. This system provides power to the cameras through the video cable you run, so there is a trade off. I use the Four Camera System. It is quite a bit of work to mount four cameras and run cable to them, but by going with the cable cameras instead of the wireless cameras you get a much better system for a much lower price. I received excellent equipment. After much research and comparing reviews, I have found that the majority of the reviews were written by people who were not familiar with the system's options yet. You will require a small LCD monitor for this system, but you can usually obtain it at a thrift store for 5 or 10 dollars. You need to use the monitor to communicate with the video recorder so you can choose the settings that you would like. The recorder comes with both a mouse and a remote control. You can't go wrong by plugging the cameras into the recorder. If you attach your monitor and the camera, you will see all four cameras on the screen. You will have an option to choose from, using a right click of the mouse button. There are many of them. The video recorder offers many features. Some technical knowledge is required to use the more exotic options such as email notification. Most people want to be able to see their cameras on their cell phones. To locate the right setup would require patience and a bit of trial and error. Firstly, your cell phone needs to have QR scanner software installed in order to load the right security camera program. It is free to download QR scanning software onto your phone. If you would like to see that on your phone, you should check Google. You may be able to get QR scanning software for Android or Iphone, which is dependent on what phone you have. You should select the Google QR Scanner Software for your phone, then download it. Once the program has downloaded and installed, your phone will now be able to read barcodes. The configuration window should appear when you turn the video recorder on. It will eventually show you pictures of barcodes, and ask you to scan one on your cell phone. You should not do that. The barcodes will load a video camera program onto your phone. The programs are continually being upgraded, so you need to have the latest program. The one on your new digital recorder may not work. Navigate to yourhome computer> instead. Near the top right corner of the XMeye home page, you will see an APP download link which will show you two barcodes that contain the latest version of the software you need. Find the new scanner icon on your cell phone and press it. When the cell phone camera turns on, scan the XMeye barecode on the XMeye home page. Your phone will ask if you want to install the new program. Now put your cellphone aside and set up your new account with XMeye. The information form will ask you for your address. That is not your residential address. The IP address is the IP address of your new digital recorder. Click on the new digital recorder and choose System and Network. Also, you will need your digital recorder serial number. Find what you are looking for, by right clicking on the main menu to 'Info,' then 'Version'. You will also be asked for a name when entering the serial number. You are the one to make that fateful decision. With the information above, you should be able to proceed with the procedure of setting up your cell phone so you can view your home cameras. If you need more help with this, I recommend using Google Search to look for XMeye Setup. There is quite a bit on the internet.
I purchased the Annke security system to install it in an area that does not have available internet or a network to connect to. I enjoy these systems. They seem to have several features that make them exceptional. The setup was very easy and straight forward. It may have been a little more challenging to connect to a network or an IP camera if one is not familiar with the ins and outs of the process. I did not rate the Tech Support because I have not had the opportunity to contact them, although on their website the contact information is readily available, both phone number and email. I tested the night vision and motion by performing the initial setup on my work bench before placing it where it was intended. I highly recommend working on it on a bench to do the initial setup. In my experience, you will find that if you are talking to tech support they may want information off the system, so if you have it just in front of you then it is easier to do and support will be more likely to be helpful.

I was frustrated by a great system and great support. When I emailed support, they called me home and set up a meeting the next morning. They were there to support us with everything. Serina was extremely helpful. I spent over six thousand dollars on a professional installation for work, but I thought I would try it myself. I believe it is a better system. I do not know why anyone would complain about the resolution. They do not know how to correct it in settings. I enjoy this system.
Installing is very simple in relation to the structure. Mine is a major pain in the buttocks. After the troubleshooting of running cables, the NVR setup was a breeze. The NVR software is easy to navigate and the support from Onwote is amazing. The bullet camera had an issue with the IR. I sent Onwote and an email. They responded overnight and sent a new camera.
It looks fantastic that the hard drive started to malfunction overnight. The tech support reacted rapidly via email with good advice, and troubleshooting the problem. The result was a hard drive that had no quality and passed the one year warranty. Onwote stood behind their product and sent me a new hard drive for free within 24 hours of my first email.
We bought this product a few months ago and have slowly added more cameras. It is a great system with clarity and night vision works well. It was well handled even though I had to reset my master password. I highly recommend this product.
I would highly recommend this product. Customer support is excellent. I experienced issues with an IP address conflict and sent an email that addressed the issue with the product. The company introduced me to Bella, my CSR, as she contacted me and called until everything worked as intended. I would recommend James for this product.

WHAT WE LIKED MOST:
This CCTV set is fairly well constructed for the price of this product. The data compression really helps with the 8 channel feed and allows you to forget about it for a while. Pros of inexpensive 8 channel digital setup, good PTZ capabilities, fair storage cap, and good data compression. Night vision is fine, but lacking some depth. For those with larger area to be covered, an option of cable or with it, is best for a small store or home but for a business, it is not the best option. This set of CCTV would cost thousands of dollars per year. However, if you desire longterm solutions and high quality products, then invest in a professional grade video surveillance set. This item is intended for small operations, and is not suitable for professional use.
The Ankle Support team helped me reach them. I now have the eighth camera. The picture attached is of the view on my phone. We reserve the eighth one when we go on trips, and use it inside the house. The system also has a camera system, which is useful when the alarm goes off. It will be simple to tell false alarms, and reset the alarm system without returning home.
The installation was effortless. The setup appears to be a little overly complicated, but everything works as it is supposed to. Super clear pictures on the monitor, television or cable that the system is connected to. The picture quality on the phone through the app is acceptable. I have not contacted tech support yet. It's been running for two weeks and it's running now hoped that it will continue to do so in the long run.
We will need to obtain additional information on these matters first. First, we had a previous camera at our barn it is 310 feet from house it did not work. The installation took some time, but the system has been stable for a month. The second benefit for their products is water tight connections. You can wire yourself a wireless system, it is great, and night vision is very good. They have two small leds that you can see at night. The customer service work great. I had a new camera and it was mounted on my home and the lens broke somehow. I contacted them on a Saturday, and now it's Wednesday and they have a new camera coming. I think this is a great company to work with, they did not wait 2 weeks to contact back.

A nicely packaged system for the price. Purchased this to keep an eye on my beach house while I'm not there. The cameras are of excellent quality, and they come with many wires to outfit your house. Just be sure to plan out where you setup the DVR because everything must be routed there. I will not comment yet because it hasn't been out for a full season, even though our treacherous winters. To have peace of mind, it is well worth the cost. The DVR system was easy to setup, but the hardest part was concealing all the wires. If you are not comfortable doing this, you should expect to pay a small amount to wire the Internet. Overall, I'm satisfied with purchase.
My neighborhood is not safe, and there are very bad things happening here. Items in my backyard have been stolen quite often. I have decided to invest money in buying a decent security system to keep my family safe. I bought an XVIM 8 cam security system because of its camera and 2TB of storage. I'm not a tech man. I like to DIY. It was quick and easy to install. It took me 30 minutes to complete this task. These eight camera are durable and weatherproof for outdoor use. The video footage has been clear and smooth so far. I actually enjoy being able to check my house on my mobile device when I am away. I feel much more confident after setting the motion detection and it will send me an alert and an email when triggered. The night vision recording works, but I would recommend getting a motion trigger lamp.
I own a restaurant in a small town, and would like to install a security camera system to ensure that my business is safe. Find a two thousand dollar company. It is too expensive for me. I searched online to locate it. You should compare that to numerous other options. The price/performance ratio is acceptable. The equipment received quickly including eight lenses, all the wiring. The installation process is relatively simple. I installed it at night, the effect is good but it also has night vision function. Thank the seller, I saved a lot of money.
It is a great security system with four camera. On the surface, it is well constructed with a nice exterior finish. The box contained a DVR base station, four cameras, a mouse, an HDMI cable, an Ethernet cable, one external power supply for the DVR, external power supplies for the cameras, and mounting hardware. Installation is relatively straightforward. One of the primary tasks is to test the system. You will need to connect the DVR to the television, connect the cameras, power it up, follow instructions to format the hard drive, set it to record, and watch it work. It takes between twenty and ten minutes and you will understand how to configure the system afterwards. I followed the instructions from YouTube, but after two hours they were placed in various locations throughout my home. It's not bad considering it costs around $1,000 for a professional to install this system around your home.

I cannot compare this system to other systems, because it is my first and only experience with security cameras. I was surprised to be able to do as well. I had no desire to explore the expense and complexity of a security system, but my wife was totally convinced we should have one. We completed our homework. The long term contracts and the cost of commercial systems are not acceptable. We would need to purchase and install a system ourselves. It was time to leave wireless systems. We discovered quickly that every camera made by our search had a monthly storage fee. The Lorex system we purchased included a storage device that communicated with our internet and our smartphones via a hardwired connection to our router and a Lorex app on our phones. Installation The instructions were not perfect, however, internet searches gave us missing or incorrect information that allowed us to continue. Installation and pairing of the cameras was simple. There are only two things that could be improved. There is a time lag between motion sensing and beginning of recording. I'm unsure if this can be improved. In addition, the quality of night and infrared pictures is not as good as the quality of full light photographs. After considering all the issues, the system complies with our requirements and our expectations. I cannot do anything better than that.
You can see that they are small enough to hide the eaves. They are wireless so that you do not have to cut holes in your siding. In order to be economical, these are the best choices.
The cameras are working wirelessly extremely well. The image quality is excellent.
It would be nice if the batteries lasted longer between charges, but overall the quality is exceptional.
This camera system is simple and doesn't require any wiring.

I paid for the product I am reviewing. I purchased this product for an installation in a client's small business. I enjoy the fact that it is a eight channel NVR. After receiving and installing the four - five-megapixel cameras that came with the product, it leaves room for expansion. The kit includes premade four to hundred foot cat-5 cables, power supply, and internet cable. Since the NVR is POE, both power and video are on the Cat-5 cable. The NVR is excellent, the image quality is fantastic and the resolution of the screen is five megapixels. It also has excellent sound quality and also has audio. The kit also includes a very nice quick setup guide that covers both local and remote viewing, as well as a CD Install the cameras using the supplied mounting hardware, connect the cat5 cable to the NVR, connect the NVR to a power outlet, and then connect a monitor to an HDMI cable if you desire the best viewing experience. I am sure you will find the photos you need. In single picture mode, the best picture will always be. If you need it, the support is outstanding and they respond quickly. Due to the current pandemic, I have yet to install the kit, so I set it up in my office to facilitate the writing of this review. In my opinion, this kit is well worth the price.
I was looking to replace my dad's security cameras with higher quality, easier to use cameras. For the price, it was an excellent purchase. It amazed me the ease with which setting up the cameras was accomplished when other security cameras I have previously used did not have an adequate set of instructions. The instructions for these cameras were two pages. The camera is extremely well made and the view is superb. I love the fact that I can zoom in and get great pictures. If you are not a pro, the recording software is very easy to use. My father, aged 70, can use the interface with ease. I would like to remind you that this camera is the best in its class. I was surprised at how clear everything was at night. The ability to watch the cameras on your phone is a major advantage because it is easy to use and connect with the app. My parents feel very safe because whenever they go anywhere they can easily bring up the cameras on their android devices. The sound recording on these security cameras is very high quality. I am very pleased with my purchase and I have zero complaints as we are able to hear noises near our house. I will be buying more in the future.
The first and foremost features are superb picture quality and the wide angle of the camera is excellent in the HD quality, secondly, the system that installs video to cameras is an easy to use selfexplanatory system. When opening each camera to view individually, it switches to high quality, clean picture and records in high quality. Mobile is a key factor when traveling on the phone. It is much more difficult when you can watch anything on the screen at once. It is probably possible that there is a resolution setting on the television that I did not know of. A commercial grade system for eight systems runs over 900, but a commercial grade system is well worth it. I have never had any issues since I installed it, because it was a great choice for my company.
I had some issues with delivery the first time, but amazon helped me. This is my first 8ch NVr. I had a DVR with 2MP bullets before this. I decided to try an NVR instead of replacing the bullets, since they died. That is amazing the quality upgrade. Video is amazing because it is very clear. Nightvision is superior to my previous setup and lacks noise. A bonus feature is a sound recording. The bullet is compatible but I can use other compatible bullets as well. We'll see. I am very happy with this kit. The NVR interface is easy to navigate.

Most complaints are negative in the direction of improving the product. In the future, the best outcome will be to be benefitted by the improvement. It did not take long after I complained that there was a problem renaming the camera head by adding a steel cable. They are kind enough to gift me with the newly designed camera after one year and a half long after the warranty expiration. The customer service is exceptional of an uncommon company. I used the Anysun 30M/100Ft Waterproof IP68 twice, and it worked well the first time, but I did not finish using it the second time. It's obviously not a big deal, if you can fix it much worse if you have lost half of the equipment value and have to order a new camera head.
These cameras have a price tag of a few thousand dollars for a basic set up or approximately ten thousand dollars for a full set up. I was skeptical about this relatively low cost setup. My friend recommended this camera to me. I opened the box and noticed the professional protective packaging. I turned the light on, and the picture looks good. It is simple to use. I tested it on my own pipes at my house. I would definitely purchase another if I need to. Also, it comes with a 12 month unlimited refund guarantee. This is an awesome camera. For me, 1.5 jobs are worth it. I'm impressed.
We purchase many rental properties and this camera has been nice to have with us to scope the lines for any major issues before purchasing. We used to pay a plumber $350 for this service and it was never easy to schedule and coordinate. After a couple of uses, it does pay for itself. It is great to record what we see, which can then be used as negotiations to purchase. I would highly recommend.
It is not designed as a primary camera for a full time plumber but it will fit through smaller pipes. Based on current prices, this camera will pay for itself the first time you use it instead of calling someone else.
I was looking for something like this. It is long enough at 100. Everything is in the case that it came with. The picture is clear and the product appears well constructed. I was unfamiliar with this type of equipment, but the first time I was able to use it, it was simple.
