I purchased the system to help keep a video security log of what's happening on my property. I liked it because it is a full 1080P video camera and is power over ethernet which meant I only had to pull one cable to each camera. I can access the video feed from anywhere in the world using my phone or tablet and works very good overall. With five cameras installed recording full-time full frame video I can manage to get six days of video stored on the 2 TB of storage. Overall this is a very good system and I would recommend it for others looking to get into for a similar system.
I purchased the LaView system, after several days of researching all other companies NVR/Camera packages. LaView seemed to have by far the most flexible, open, and simple approach to both purchasing & setting up a system. My primary concern was a price-point, but also didn't want to get locked into a "cheap" solution that uses only proprietary cameras, and no ONVIF support. LaView more than met the expectation, as after the delivery I was able to setup & configure the 4 cameras in about 3 hours. The configuration was only less than 15 minutes, after I did the physical install, which was complicated only by layout of walls & attic. The POE nature of the cameras allowed me to get the best signal possible, without a need to run power to each camera. I have also added a non-LaView camera to the NVR, proving that the ONVIF compatibility works great! In summary, I would recommend this to others looking for a reasonably priced system with great quality & expandability.
