High Definition CCTV System
This Lorex 1080p 8 Camera CCTV kit is a great way to protect your home or business and monitor them remotely. It features four 1080p full HD weatherproof cameras that can be used both indoors and outdoors. With intelligent night vision and an 83-degree field of view, you can peace of mind that your home or business is under the watchful eye of your cameras.

Smart Long Range Night Vision
The Cameras in the Lorex LHA21081TC4P CCTV kit come with top of the line long range night vision technology. The infrared LEDs around the sensor give you unparalleled performance in the dark, with a clear view up to 40 metres in regular night-time conditions and 27 metres in total darkness. There is also an embedded IR cut filter that turns on and off between day and night, to give you better colour in all lighting conditions. The cameras also feature a SmartIR feature that gives you better close-up recognition in the dark. Using this feature it will be easier to make out faces that are up close to the camera compared to others that make it hard due to the level of IR light shining off the persons face.

How can I record and monitor with this CCTV kit?
This CCTV kit records directly to the pre-installed security grade hard drive. You can customise how you want the footage to be saved, so you can either choose between continuous, scheduled and motion recording. Continuous recording records constantly and automatically loops over old recordings should your drive get full. This is a great option for businesses or people with a varied home schedule. Scheduled recording allows you to only record when you want to. For example, when you are not at home or if you are going away for a while. Motion recording is triggered when any of the connected cameras in your system detect movement. This is perfect if you only want to see footage of specific events and don’t want to record a bunch of nothingness.

Remote Viewing with FLIR Secure
If you are away from home but want to keep an eye on what is going on you can do so quite simply by connecting your systems DVR to your router and configuring the app. You can set the app up in three easy steps and then view the footage being streamed from your CCTV system anywhere with an internet connection. The app is available on both iOS and Android, and it can send you push notifications when there is an alert so you are up to date throughout the day.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lorex I bought this Lorex system without checking the reviews online, this was a big mistake. This kit is not plug and play so please beware as the quick start up may keep you in front of your pc for hours trying to decipher the website. The DVR has to be hardwired into your router so you need to have a convienient place to leave it which Maplins assured me would not be the case. Playback is not working and the website is so confusing that we still continue to remedy this, if you are not an IT specialist or know one then please do not buy this kit. This is not the fault of Maplins as they only sell what is given to them

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy set up and great quality! Just set this all up now and it’s absolutely superb. Was a little unsure about the weather resistant plugs so rather than leave them to the elements I installed IP44 junction boxes to house the connections to prevent any unwanted issues. DVR runs very quickly and doesn’t seem to have much lag. Very easy to use! I’ve installed the app on iPhone and IPad now and it is absolutely amazing! Can’t recommend enough, have room to expand for four more cameras too. Buy it you won’t regret it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Home cctv system Bought this system at the reduced price of £199 and it does exactly what it says it does and more. Love the fact that I can use my phone to view live what is happening no matter where I am. Going abroad soon so I'll see if I can use it there. Brilliant display even at night. Burglars Beware!!!!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from First CCTV installation I brought this as Id been toying with installing CCTV to my property for about 18 months. The camera spec and HD size were important to me, as was the ability to access the system from an iphone Collected on Friday morning and installed by Saturday night. You have to plan for cable-routing and camera positions. I had to consult my wife as Id have got it wrong and all 4 were going outside. I wanted to limit holes in the house, so installed it in my garage- this meant getting a LAN out there as it HAS to be wired, not wireless. Getting 4 sets of camera cable and a LAN wire (CAT5e) requires a 25mm hole through the double-skin 9'' bright wall. Tip- to get all the wires through, as they will snag on the bricks- cut a 6'' piece of plastic conduit- which is 20mm diameter, Feed the cables into it, one by one and prevent them coming out the end- then just push the plastic conduit and the cables through the hole and once all in the wall and out the other side- its easy! Make a loom up by taping the cables together (even though they will be different lengths) as it will make handling/securing the loom easier. Id jury-rigged my system before i installed it- I put 2 cameras up, plugged it all in and connected a temporary LAN feed to the DVR and followed the instructions to update the firmware- so i know knew it worked. Im a lift engineer- so I'm used to cables, electronics, computers- but didn't be put off- its not difficult. The software interface is linux-based and only does what it says. The basic setup instructions are fine- but backing up recordings is not straight forward until you have done it- i.e., save video to a USB stick (the stick doesn't appear in devices- so you are not sure that you are backing up to it...) But it does work, it rained first night and was still working the next day! Im happy with the system- only drawback may be the 9 days capacity if you needed to review while you were away for 2-weeks, then you would be abided to go for a bigger drive (2TB?) Id recommend the system- the night vision is good, but in black and white- in case thats not obvious. The lighting level is good, the cameras show an array of RED LEDs of a night but you will NOT be able to read registration plates off cars- as the reg plate bounces the LED lighting and it appears as a white blank.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HD cctv by lorex Swan system packed up, spoke to swan said box u/s. Didn't want to have to change all cabling etc, lorex fitted the bill very nicely, much improved picture from HD cams as a added benefit plus as the old system box was only 8 port and this one is 16 extra points of view when needed , worked out the box, and mobile setup so so easy, no port forwarding stuff. Just a qr code. Done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible - Home CCTV System Bought this just yesterday. Obviously haven't got this properly setup & installed yet, but after playing with it for several hours, I am very impressed! The quality & ease of setup, I couldn't be happier with. For the price, I am blown away by this thing. I am quite tech savvy, so for me to be saying that is quite something. One thing that I really wanted was the ability to constantly monitor a live feed from 1 of the cameras to a 1080p computer monitor in my home office. This system allows just that, with really great quality, all whilst recording everything. I can choose to view a live stream of all 4 channels (2 of which are blank (only 2 cameras provided)), or on a cycle of all channels every X seconds, or fixed on a certain channel of my choosing forever; exactly what I wanted. Incredibly impressed. Quality is similar to that of a high-end car dash cam I would say. Tempted to buy another 2 cameras to make full use of the 4 channels of this DVR! Recommend to everyone!! Can't wait to install this properly in my home!

Asked by: hardrive76
You can run up to 300ft as long as it's an uninterrupted cable run. Or up to 800ft if you are powering the camera at site and just running the video signal back to the DVR. Further explanation can be found here scroll down the page until you get to the orange cabling examples (BNC connect)
