For the most part, customers love this system, with one of the only complaints, which we’ll get into in a moment, being that the instructions for installation are a little convoluted and hard to follow. Still, it’s hard to be disappointed with this offering from Zmodo, among one of the better security systems put out by the company.
Set-Up and Installation
Set up and installation can be a bit of a convoluted process due to the instructions’ density. However, it is possible to install the cameras on your own if you have the patience to figure it out. These cameras can be installed both inside and outside due to their durable design. For best results, set on a shelf or install along the wall/ceiling.
Looking for a solid entry-level system? In this case, Zmodo has you covered. With eight cameras, remote feed viewing capabilities, and a durable design, you’ll be good to go no matter the occasion or where you decide to install the cameras.
While installation is needlessly complex, these cameras are of high quality, especially when the price is taken into account. We love the intelligent and motion detection recording modes, allowing users to be careful about their storage space and get the most out of their security systems. Give this one a shot. You’ll be sure to be pleased with the relatively high quality.
