Hey y’all Bob here and today i’m gonna be talking about the ISEEUSEE 4 Channel 720p HD DVR Kit. There’s lots of these types of product on the market and people like them because they’re simple.
You get a few Camera’s, a Central Hub and a Motion Sensor.
So they’re complete all-in-one products meaning you don’t have to go around hunting for all the parts individually in order to secure your home. There’s a whole host of these things and basically there’s not much difference between them, so it all comes down to value. Does the particular system you’re looking at represent good value? This is what i’ll be letting you know here about the ISEEUSEE.

The first thing y’all should be looking at are the Cables. How long are they? Y’all get 60ft here and although the manufacturer has claimed this to be very special it’s actually what you get in most systems around this price. Take these out of the box, place the DVR down and attach them.
Then your gonna wanna run them around to wherever you choose to put the Cam’s.
After you’ve hooked your Cam’s the system should recognize them almost immediately and you’re up and running.
First the good news. You get a 1TB Hard Drive already installed inside the DVR. This is massive for the price. You’d usually see something like this on a system priced between 200 and 300 bucks so it’s very impressive that you get one here for under 200 bucks. It means you can record straight out of the box. And, you’ll be able to store around a months worth of footage even if you recorded 24 hours a day.
Y’all damn straight this is good value. But… there’s always a but folks.
They had to save money somehow after slinging in such a large Hard Drive and they chose the Camera Lens. Most Cam’s on these kinds of system are fixed but have a wide angle to cover a large area. There is a wide angle here but it’s only 75 degree’s, so you’re going to get less coverage per Cam on this system than with others around this price.
You get three recording options. Firstly you can choose to record only when the Motion Sensors detects movement in the house and around it.
Second you can record 24 hours a day.
Thirdly you can schedule specific times when you want the system to record. It’s entirely up to you.
Not 1080p, and if you wanted to pay an extra 50 bucks to get 1080p then the images would be better. But, you do get 100 feet of vision both day and night. Considering the fact that 65ft is the average on Cam’s way above this price then I’d say that’s good value.
As it stands the pictures are pretty good and you can certainly make out in great detail what a person looks like and who they are.
Unfortunately though there’s no zoom. The Cam’s also come with an Vandal-Proof mount. It’s very strong.
By using the App you can go online from anywhere in the world and view or record live footage. You’ll be presented with 4 Channels and the option to choose one, or view all four at once. Each Channel represents each individual Camera. You can Pause, Rewind, Fast forward or Stop,
so all of the basic controls are available to you online.
I should point out that this is Self-Monitored meaning that if you see anything, or if you get a text message telling you of a disturbance, the onus is on you to take action. There’s no security company watching and calling the police for you. So keep a look out for texts while you’re at work.
Lots of these systems have this tag and it doesn’t mean they’re weatherproof. It means that they’ve been tested for water resistance and this particular unit passed the test.
It’ll withstand heavy rain conditions and even Tropical Storms.
Where you see this tag you should remember that there was no testing against heavy winds. So if you live in an area that is affected by Hurricane winds then you will receive damage.
I liked that you get 4 Cam’s and the fact that they’re 720p is real good for the price. The pictures are great too. The 1TB Hard Drive is massive and makes 30 days continuous recordings possible. While it’s not right for everyone there is great mobile connectivity, it is rainproof, and you do have some nice recording options. Ultimately i’d say this is well worth the money at around 190 bucks.
