  • H.View 2x Camera CCTV Home Security System with 500G Hard Disc Drive

    Before I start, this CCTV pack is neither 1080p / 720p nor IP cameras, but analogue cameras with 960H resolution (960 x 480) that connect to the DVR via analogue cables and converts to digital in DVR. If you get the variant without Hard Disk, very easy to install HDD, I’ve included an inside picture of DVR. This pack doesn’t contain HDMI cable to connect to your Display.

    Very easy to wire up (at least for testing), it takes only few minutes once you figure out how to connect the power to the cameras. Cannot go wrong by any means as the cables are labelled clearly. HDMI output is capable of providing output of 1080p, if you have 1080p content in HDD already. Many points in product ad is misleading though right in its on perspective. Manual is not very user friendly, but for basic setup and usage, you will be fine. I only looked out for manual for motion detection setup for a specified area.

    In my set up, I’ve initially set this up to record in continuous mode, but decided to try motion detection option, which saves a lot of power and hard disk space. Regarding the accompanied APP, I haven’t tested it yet but used HDMI output to configure the system. The footage is decent, you can make out what’s going on. Night time coverage is also decent enough for few metres or so. Email alerts works fine on the defined events.

    Over all it works exactly as advertised, though you may need an understanding on what exactly the product description meant in that paragraph only. Please do check out the pictures to see what you get, how it looks and some tips on connections.
