  • What's Included
  • 500 GB HD
    This system records up to 1 year of video with its pre-installed 500GB security certified SATA hard drive. The hard drive was specifically designed for DVR's, and provides faster read/write times and reliable recording of your video surveillance footage.
    H.264 Compression Technology
    H.264 technology delivers stunning video quality at remarkably low data rates. An upgrade to the MPEG4 standard, this ultra-efficient technology gives you excellent results across a broad range of bandwidths, from remote access via internet explorer to remote viewing on your 3G smart phone. H.264 compression also allows you to save more video footage than traditional compression methods thus giving you up to 50% more storage.
    Viewable over 3G Smart Phones
    Having the ability to check on your home or business has never been easier. This smart H.264 DVR will allow you to view all of your cameras remotely on select 3G smart phones. Windows Mobile, Symbian and iPhone on 3G networks are all compatible with the Falcon-8500.
    Viewable over the Internet
    This network ready H.264 DVR kit allows you to view and control your system over the internet using Internet Explorer 7 or higher. No matter where you are in the world you can log into your system and watch real time video streams, playback previously recorded files and even backup the system remotely. The network ready feature also turns any computer screen on your network into a live surveillance center. (Ethernet cable included)
    Point and Click Interface
    The Network DVR Security System comes equipped with a state of the art, easy to use icon based interface. All you need to do is point and click to access any of the features of the DVR. The interface is very user friendly and comes equipped with both a USB mouse and remote control.
    Motion Activated Recording
    Motion activation allows you to record only when necessary, and makes it easy to find important footage during video playback. This will save you time and conserve hard drive space. Enhanced motion detection settings ensure that false alarms are not triggered. An easy motion detection mask allows you to block out areas with constant movement, such as roads or trees.
    Connects Directly to a TV
    The DVR easily connects to your TV for instant viewing. This DVR comes equipped with 2 optional BNC to RCA video outputs so you can connect multiple TV

    For the price you can't beat it. The cameras are entry level. For inside the house at low light level the system works fine. For outside long range, you will need to upgrade. But folks you get what you pay for. So you cant expect spectacular performance from these entry level cameras. I am upgrading to some wide angle -20C cameras. The software is a little old and on the not user friendly side but once you have it figured out does exactly what is required. The instructions lack in clarity and you need a little more than basic computing skills to get it up and running on the net. I still haven't been able to figure out how to get email alerts. I cannot log on directly through IE. I have had to download software from the company website to friend's computer to see my cameras from an off site location. I still think for what you pay you are getting great value...I love it.

    Rating not waste your money. Quality bad, angle of view narrow, night vision bad.

    Installation instructions must have been written (I use that term loosely) by someone or group with absolutely no logical reasoning ability.

    The DVR is excellent. The cameras leave a lot to be desired. Cannot get true color on them. I will probably upgrade the cameras.

    Great system at an awesome price! The internet side takes a little tweaking, but once set it is very simple to use. I expected lower quality with the price, but I'm pleasantly surprised by how solid all of the equipment is. The interface is easy to navigate and the web access is excellent. Although the manufacturer does not advertise, there are free android apps that support this system.
