I recently fitted two of these cameras into a property I was renovating. It was easy in this case to run the wires to the DVR, as I was able to design in the cable runs at the house design stage. I imagine it would be a little more challenging to fit on an existing structure. The DVR is connected to the TV, which makes accessing the setup fairly easy. However, the need to use the provided mouse to manipulate the menus is a bit clunky in this setup. Having the DVR next to a desktop monitor would be easier.

If you wish to use the remote monitoring facility using the Yale CCTV app, the DVR also needs to be connected to your router via ethernet cable. Again, this is an issue if the DVR and router are in different rooms, as they are in my house. In the end, I used powerline adapters at each end which seems to work fine. A wireless connection would be much easier though.

Setting up the system with the mouse is simple, but time consuming and I found the setup not to be intuitive. Also, I have yet to be able to setup an email alert for movement detection etc, despite several attempts. To be honest, the instructions with the system were not that detailed in regard to connecting to the internet and associated issues such as email. The next step is for me to contact Yale directly.

The system is robust and reliable and does the job I bought it for. It was good value for money, but a bit dated in some of its applications. I have managed workarounds to most of the limiting factors, but would really like that email function to work!

Yale products are good although the app could be better for viewing on phones etc., the storage is good.The cameras supplied with the product are ok,but I have upgraded my cameras sent with it to hd, which is much better than the ones supplied with the unit.Overall I would recommend it as a home system.

I bought this as a deterrent after having a vehicle broken into. The kit arrived quickly and was clear in the way it should be assembled. The length of cabling for the cameras was sufficient to go around the outside of the house. The wall needed a 22mm hole drilling to enable the connections to be fed the to the inside. This was the only difficulty as the cable on one camera was badly damaged as it rubbed passing it through requiring some careful soldering, and a cable connecting the hard drive to a monitor would have been useful. But saying that everything works fine. The cameras at night work well and can be seen to glow red in the dark. The app on my phone works well too. It was so good I bought another set for a relative.
