ZMODO KDS4-BARBZ4ZN 4 Channel CCTV H.264 Real-Time DVR

At 8 pounds and retailing at $299.99 this 4 channel 4 camera security surveillance system offers a user friendly experience with comparable features as its bigger counterparts. It offers what seems the standard H.264 compression digital video recorder with video and audio input/output capabilities, motion detection recording options. Compatible with most smart hand held devices, live remote viewing can be accessed over any 3G connection. USB ports make back up transfers easy and the camera unit has both indoor and outdoor applications.

Record modes can be set to continuous to capture even the smallest nuances and changes in activity levels, or scheduled recording to capture information during specific intervals or motion recording which only begins recording when activity is detected. Not only does this camera support remote viewing access but it also has handy pan tilt zoom controls to maximize viewing capacity. Night vision range up to 65 feet with 3.6 mm lens and utilizing 480 television lines ensures you won’t sacrifice image quality when lighting changes.

ZMODO has packed a hefty punch with this small unit, do not be fooled by its small appearance, as this camera system can stand up to competitors in the market that are larger and come with a heftier price tag. The quality of the camera system is also comparable to others and the only disappointing thing is little details regarding the accompanying warranty and access to technical support but the price point and the unit’s built in capabilities is sure to be attractive to a certain percentage of the market.

Another concern is the 3.6 mm camera lens which reduce viewing aptitude and it stands to question whether or not images captured would be sufficient, however, with the remote pan tilt zoom option perhaps this concern is made obsolete as you can manipulate the focus area of each camera at will no matter where you are, I still wonder about “blind spots” though which would cause certain vulnerabilities and it is unclear if you can set the cameras to pan automatically or if you have to give the camera this command each time.

Overall this camera is a good investment perhaps for homeowners or small businesses and as mentioned before is feature rich giving the operator many options to ensure your needs are met. It is important to take careful consideration of your surveillance needs before making an investment of any kind to make sure that whatever you purchase will do the job you need it to.
