Rated 5 out of 5 by from I can see them coming now! I have the Night Ow CL-D8P12-26Ll system that comes with six cameras but can support twelve with the two terabyte hd. I only have the six cameras so far covering all the approaches such as the driveway and corners with one in the basement to keep an eye on the water pump mostly. With an unfinished basement installation was pretty easy because there wasn't a lot of making wires invisible. If I had to hide the wires in the wall I would have had it installed by a professional. Thank you

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Night Owl 4k Security Cameras The Night Owl 4k Security Cameras are pretty amazing. We love the clarity and that we are able to use thru wifi directly to our television as well as on our phones. They also track people as they come into view so you are able to monitor quickly. The dvr also has a 1 tb hard drive so it holds a ton of video for you to keep on hand just in case anything needs to be watched. As I said before such a great device and I would definitely recommend to all in need of a great Surveillance system!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE the app! Just had my new system installed and I couldn't be happier! Love the easy app. I'm able to quickly scroll through and find videos and playback! also, these cameras come with a spotlight that is SO bright! I had the installer put one above my driveway and anytime any type of motion occurs the lights go off! I live in a nice neighborhood and unfortunately there was a few break ins so I'm thrilled so have these cameras with the lights as a deterrent! love my Night Owl system!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Game Changer This Night Owl system is great. Only took me about an hour to install the whole system. It consists of 4 wired cameras and the 1tb DVR. Video quality is amazing during the day, very little false alarms due to the human tracking feature. It does an amazing job knowing the difference of a person, car, animal, and shadows from the sun changing. My old system would get tons of false alarms because of the lighting changing through out the day. This system is easy to use, the interface on the DVR is easy to navigate around, and the mobile app works very well too. It's put together nicely. Cameras work very well at night too. I get better color in darker lighting then my old system and the night vision is amazingly clear. I can rest at night knowing I have a great system watching over my property and family while we are sleeping or away from home. If you are looking for a security system, don’t hesitate to get this one. The DVR is expandable to 12 cameras which is more then you’ll ever need. I’m am extremely happy with this Night Owl system, having the 4K Resolution is a game changer, and a must have. The detail is incredible. Love it. Very happy with this system!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Camera's are too sensitive! I installed the NightOwl system for over a year and have been very satisfied overall until I decided to buy 2 more cameras. I bought 2 refurbished directly from NightOwl and installed them but these 2 cameras are so sensitive that I have them set on low and have almost blocked out every part of the cameras view in order to prevent them from recording nonstop. The only real use I have for these 2 cameras is to be able to look in on these 2 areas of view from time to time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love, love, love the set up! Got a week ago, this is so perfect even when the internet was off it clearly shown everything happening outside! We can watch all the corners of our house, our dog, visitors, and the car. Definitely recommend to anyone who asks and I show them how well it works. Only downside, The light stays on for some reason.. I think it's the indicator light but otherwise it's fantastic to have. The tough times we all have to deal with, I'm glad to have this security camera set up!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality video These cameras were easy to install and easy to connect to watch live. I like how much space I’m offered to record. I don’t need a monthly fee because every recording is stored on the 1tb hard disk drive! I have my whole house covered with these four cameras. There are 8 channels to view every spot. High quality video and also has face detection so I’m alerted when a face is detected. I appreciate they are a company that makes them in the USA. The value can’t be beat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great resolution Wonderful upgrade. This system is user friendly, ease of install, once I figured the instructions out with some help of tech support. I am in medical and technically challenged. The app is easy to use, dvr as well. Picture quality on both is clear, day and night. My old system was grainy and slow and this is 100x better! So thankful to have this unit. We have it in all of our outbuildings, pond house, and home and it doesn't use much bandwidth at all. Doesn't lag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Far So Good Purchased system (4 cameras and DVR TB) about a week ago. So far so good. Easier set up than I thought. Hardest part was deciding where to place them and drilling holes. Set up and connectivity was really easy. You can call it Plug and Play. I plugged in everything just like the video said and it played. Just that simple. Took me a day or two to figure out how to adjust the camera angles, but I'm a guy and would rather connect it, before reading the instructions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Install, American-Owned Company! It makes me feel great to buy a quality security system from an American-owned company. The cameras are bright, the visuals are crystal clear. The real-time alerts are extremely helpful and make me feel safe. As a single Mom, it's great to have peace of mind with the real-time alerts, clear pictures, easy installation and DVR, CCTV and the fact that there are no fees for the hard drive disk storage. It is so nice to have a complete system come in one box!

It’s advanced, hi tech and intricate detail to the HD view of the multi camera setups master every monitored activity and works well as a backup critter sighting! We have never felt more protected and comfortable in a household that generally relies on S&W for all security needs! Great addition to this household!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Walk Off Homer On Black Friday we entered the world of home security cameras. Within a few days our first four cameras were bringing peace of mind. This last purchase was my second order of two more each time. Our NightOwl system of eight and the DVR work day and night to allow us peace of mind. My wife can step to the monitor and see those things that go boom in the night. We both appreciate the quality and features (and the value for our money!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from obsessed with the spotlights!!!!! OK so we live in a residential gated community and just purchased this system for our townhouse. I only wanted to start off with 4 cameras to try it out knowing I'd most likely want to add more later. I am so in love with this product I just bought more cameras to add on to this system. the spotlights are incredible quality, so bright and truly make a statement when someone walks by at night. great buy! highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Security System I recieved this Night Owl Security System and so glad that I did. This system was very easy to install and learn how the app worked. These cameras have Motion-Activated Spotlights,Human Detection Technology and Facial Capture. The 4k has sharp clear video quality.Well designed and easy to use. The cameras work reliably well both during the day and at night. I was really surprised by the clarity of the nighttime picture. Typically with security cameras that record at night there's sometime a 'blooming' or 'blowout' effect that can distort what your looking at .Having any kind of distortion to a recording can kinder you from identifying something important. The Night Owl 4k Ultra HD Wired Security System has spotlight cameras that allows you to see the picture in actual color. Having this feature is a huge benefit compared to other cameras that relies on standard night vision. The 4k will record when it detects motion and when motion is detected. Your smart device is sent a notification,This is great for when you might be expecting a package or someone is at the door but you are unable to answer it right away.The camera's are sturdy and high quality are going to withstand harsh winter weather of rain/snow and hot summer days. If you are looking for a security system but don't want to deal with a monthly payment the Night Owl 4K Ultra HD Wired Security System should be an easy choice for you. If it's for personal security for your home this security system provides an invaluable service. I feel like my family is safe and my mind is at ease since we installed these camera's.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clarity is outstanding! The Night Owl Wired Security System works flawlessly. The 60 foot cords fit hardwiring that are included were plenty for our application, but longer cords are available as well. The camera instillation was quick as we were able to run the wires outside on the walls. We do have previous experience, so that should be stated. Directions for in wall running of the cords were also included and quite thorough. Where these cameras really shine is the picture quality. Through the app you can check in from anywhere with wifi and see as if you were there. Less than 5 second lag time and alert notifications are helpful. There is no need for monthly plans and fees with the included hard drive. The human detection settings work well, but other things still occasionally trip the light. Overall it’s a great product and was exactly what we needed for keeping an eye remotely on our property.
Date published: 2020-11-09
Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good These were relatively easy to install since I already had the wiring preexisting in my home. The directions were very well written and easy to understand. Installation took a few hours, but I was up and running in less time than I anticipated. The video is pretty crisp and impressive. So far, so good. We'll see how they work in the winter with the snow piling up and whether or not the views are obstructed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Secure and high quality I bought this system when we moved into a new house, given all the uncertainty in the world at this time. It is my first foray into the world of home security. I really appreciate the highest amount of storage for the recordings, and the crystal clear imagery. The fact that the cameras are lighted is very convenient as well. Overall, I sleep better at night knowing that this system is keeping us secure

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great System I’m pleasantly surprised by how easy this was to set up. The fact that it is a wired system had me worried but with the help of someone that’s handy, it was pretty easy! Plus side, it’s more reliable than a wireless system. The image is sharp and clear. The app was easy to navigate. I was a little disappointed that the cameras were plastic but that’s just a small con. I still give this system 5 stars!!
Date published: 2020-11-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like the video quality and human recognition This was an upgrade from an older Night Owl system. The motion detection on the older system resulted in a lot of "false alarms" so most of the time the notifications were turned off. This system does a much better job of detecting humans and therefore reducing false notifications. My only complaint is that the app and CMS software could use a little more detail on all the features and instructions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Provides Great Security! Having these security cameras offer the safe protection I have been looking for. My kids are my priority and keeping them safe means everything. To know when someone is around that shouldn't be and being informed makes me feel better. Also, we receive lots of packages and this helps keep track of them in case something happens. Thank you for providing such an excellent set of security cameras!

So glad that we took the dive and upgraded.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clear images I bought the 6 camera's to help make my family feel safe. The night owl security system is so easy to install. You need at least 2 people when setting up the camera's. That way you not running back and forward making sure to get the right angle. Easy to read instructions and also have a website or number to call if you are having trouble. Love that I can add up to six more cameras.

This can be done at the DVR/NVR level or remotely via the App. This may come in handy for cameras that are installed inside the home, or during special events where you anticipate a lot of camera activity. For more information on disabling the spotlight, please refer to your product's support material on our support site, linked below.

Are these cameras waterproof

Asked by: AmandaE25
Night Owl's wired cameras are intended for indoor and outdoor use. When installing the cameras outside, we recommend placing them under some type of minimal protection such as an eave or awning. The cameras are weather-resistant, not waterproof (meaning they cannot be submerged under water). If they are overexposed to the elements it will reduce their lifespan. For your product's weather-resistant rating and operating temperature range, please check your product's specifications on the packaging or the product page at NightOwlSP.com. Thank you for choosing Night Owl!

Can this system be controlled with a remote control? In my previous system, I had my smart home automatically change the channel to show which zone had detected motion. It accomplished this with a Harmony hub that controlled the system via an IR port.

Whats the response time of the camera. We have a current system that at times adds a certain delay. We are wanting to use these to monitor bottles going around our bottling line to watch for any spills and such so any delay will not be efficient for us.
