4K Home Security Camera Review – Lorex System

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


My first look at the Lorex 4K HD NVR Home Security Camera system. The cameras I have are all the POE (power over ethernet) 4K cameras with night vision. They send the video feed and get power all through the ethernet cable alone.
With these systems you are not stuck with all the same camera, you can buy and mix any Lorex Ethernet camera with your system. I would like to try the color night vision and the PTZ (pan tilt zoom) cameras. As well as a camera that supports audio. When I buy them I will make a video on those as well so check out my other videos.

DS channel says:

Waste of money if u ask me

Joe Schlotthauer says:

Gee, where's Andy, Opie, and Aunt Bee….

Anderson C says:

Sounds like a real "smart" system BUT being that we're in the age of "smart homes (smartphones…etc.)"…I would like to see Lorex incorporate Amazon Alexa support…maybe Apple AirPlay for people on that system and Google Play support for Google Home people. I'm more for Alexa…as that system has support by electronics companies like Denon (AVR's…a/v receivers–hub for home theatres). Actually all 3 of those "smart home systems" have security camera/door bells systems already..their own brand..as you probably already know..but if Lorex can do better…with a total 4k camera setup…

James 007 says:

Did it take you 11 months to install all the cameras ?

The Product Reviewer says:

Is that a 720 tv you got it on lol

IRON60 BITCH says:

I don’t like cameras that are the bullet type the ones that you were using bandit indicate which direction they’re recording and they’re not that difficult to push dome cameras much more reliable much more water resistant they also look better

IRON60 BITCH says:

The only issue I have is the cables should be custom cut to size

Paul Warnow says:

I have a couple of years working with Lorex.

Sadly I have to report that with my recent purchase, and setup; I have had a lot of trouble with Lorex NVR & cameras; and their tech support are not that good.

Lorex even sent me an email with instructions on how to reset the NVR; but, resetting it did not help.

Hopefully they will improve their products and customer service.

An Tran says:

is this has audio feature?

Andrew Orphanides says:

Thank you so much I'll be getting these and fitting them myself

GlobalAviator1 says:

I did not mean that I would cut the wire however if an intruder climbed up and snipped the wire then the camera is dead. I had this co install some cameras for me and all you can see is the Cameras fixed on a base that is bolted to the walls. The cable in hidden in the wall.

Linen Line says:

Hi need wifi to save videos?

EPSTomcat11 says:

Hey Adam / everyone here in the comment section – I need a system for the underground garage of a small 12-unit condominium complex. We just need 4 cameras installed in the garage. And we don't want a subscription service.

The DVR would be secured in a locked metal housing box mounted on the wall somewhere in the garage.

What we want to have, is the ability to have wireless access to the videos. It's fine if we need to walk into the garage for that access.

The connection from the cameras to the DVR could be wireless (ideal but what's the range) or wired, but again the main thing is we don't want to have to open up the metal box and connect a laptop to it. We want to be able to access the videos wirelessly with a smartphone's browser.

Any recommendations in terms of what to buy? I was thinking of getting a wireless hub and connecting the DVR to it, all inside the housing box (along with battery-backup).

Dominic Campanella says:

That brand sucks. I bought them and returned

USNVA says:

I'm not interested if it's made in China.

John Stansbury says:

Mine only lasted two and a half years and they wouldn't send me parts

Christine DiBiase says:

I’m interested in how you install the wiring for the camera’s to the NVR unit. How do you actually install this unit, not just how to mount the camera outside.

doom says:

Can it identify license plates on the street parked/moving?
