Did this video help you?

jldean78: Nice Video Chris. Just picked up a zmodo system and was wondering the size and type of screws used to mount the cameras

Roman Reich: Chris, how did you connect the wireless camera to the DVR? Thanks.

TrippyManee: ohh i see well it sounds similar to what i need to do. So i need to go into my modem/router and forward the dvr port or whatever?

Alex A: I noticed 'wind noise' from your main door cam. You could try putting some foam around the mic to cut that down a bit? :-)

MrJ9k: you have a beautiful home. great video.

nelson sagulo: well did you use the ZMODO camera filming of your works.. if so it is fantastic camera pixel to buy.

Dylan Spade: Do you have prroblemes with the wireless camera interfearing with a cell phone or wifi router?

Gil T: Chris, what do suggest for folks that live in the southwest when it comes to homes that are mostly stucco and no place to hide and protect the wires?

Andrew Jordan: what is the model number of the wireless camera you added thanks..great info !!!!

Mark Steinberg: Great Video. I was just wondering it looked like you have plastic siding. I do and was wondering if you can still attach the camera with out drilling all the way through to the house

Ybbob Nomis: Thanks for the reply. I have my system hooked up and running. I am looking for a wireless camera like the Lorex LW2110, however lots of reviews saying it takes over wi-fi. have you noticed any of those issues and is the lorex the only camera that allows BNC hookups like that?

Danny Ponce: I was wondering if there is anyway you can connect more camaras then the dvr holds. I bought a falco dvr with 9-channel's but I have 14 cameras installed. Is there some external hardware I can buy to plug in the rest of them and cycle them on 1 channel?

classicguitar08: is still working fine?? i want buy one like this ZMODO

Roy Poud: howdy chris. boy,for a relatively simple system,you got it covered. would do anything diff next time? thanx,, R`

classicguitar08: i've learned about this,great video thanks!!!

icannabiz1: great video, I have a question how did the DVR pick up the wireless camera?

Fred Warkentin: How do you know if the system your purchasing will be compatible for viewing with your smart phone?

breezy0037: what's the video quality at night?

TrippyManee: watssup man so im having trouble setting the app up on my iPhone. I have the zmd-dd-sbn4-500gb 4channel. similar to yours kinda and i can notttt set up the network. do i use the same username and pass i used on the dvr or ? And also wich port am i using. Im seeing two labeled port. I get a connection failed everytime -____-

Chris Heider: Search Amazon for "BNC to RCA" for an adapter.

Chris Heider: Watch this video. I show you everything I did to connect the cameras and audio.

suribe1422: Perfect video.... Thank you you make it so easy...and simple to help me install my cams ... Thank you

mastersid: where did you get the mics for the cameras?

ndudman8: Oh, sorry 1 more Q... I was told by zmodo that that model H9128 is the only one that supports macOS i.e dosn't rely on ActiveX for web viewer of the cameras, can you confirm this ?

Rummeredin: Great Video .. I found it by searching how to install my Wiring on the Outside of house. I just got my SWANN 2900 yesterday & I appreciate the Ideas.

bygremlin: good video, I already have this system but I never got around to installing it but now I think I will, thanks.

bugernet: Great install! I hav a question, I have a Swann 4ch system now and i hav 2 tell u Swann in my situation has been giving me junk gear, im on my 4th replacement dvr and that 1 was DOA just like the other 4 that were replaced. i finally got a hold of the head guy @ Swann he picked up the phone when i called hung up on me so i left a very detailed msg and never got a return call. Bak 2 my question how is your system working out 4 u? any problems,is it user friendly, pic quality,software layout Thx

Chris Heider: These cameras automatically adjust to brightness. If the sun is shining at the lens, it will darken the picture automatically. Everything may be too dark to view at that time, but it shouldn't hurt the camera.

Chris Heider: The BNC output can be adapted to an RCA cable and then split (as described above) to multiple TVs. You can get a BNC-to-RCA adapter on Amazon or eBay. You could also split the VGA output, but that's more difficult and costly. As I said, you need to decide what will work best for you.

Chris Heider: You can plug in a jump drive into a USB port and export a video file directly from the DVR menu, but the file will be in the original H.264 format. My preferred method is to connect to the DVR from your computer because the NetDVR app can convert it to AVI, which is more portable.

jandera him: plus is it possible if we use a external hdd?

Ybbob Nomis: My question is how is the images facing the sunlight? I know that you don't want to point directly into the sun however the suns rays beam on the back side directly and I wanted to know if this camera system can tolorate that type of picture

Chris Heider: I just modified my video description with a link to a decent video that describes router configuration for remote access. But it may be confusing since your situation will likely be different. I still recommend you find a local geek to help.

Chris Heider: Verify that you have it configured to overwrite the oldest files when it runs out of space.

Best Pixel Repair INC: It's pretty clear with installation. All wired cameras are being connected to BNC inputs. But how did you connect the wireless camera to your setup? Or DVR is hybrid: BNC and IP?

Insumos Acuarios: thanks for the video. What is an IR camera? Still not decided by which team buy and see that some cameras offer 24IR or 22ir. That would be the difference?

Chris Heider: My Zmodo system has been working flawlessly for 8 months now. No complaints at all. Sorry to hear of your problems with Swann.

ndudman8: Nice video, inteligent and though unlike much of what I found on this model, thanks. Q1, did you try chancing the sensitivity of the motion detect for outside cameras to avoid false alarms with wind/squirels etc ? was the motion detection useful at all Q2 How is the night vision of those standard cameras that come in the kit ? Thankts again for all the info

Garrett Gatlin: Thank you for taking the time to make this video. I'm considering purchasing this system and I'm curious if it's still working well for you.

Chris Heider: The exact item title on Amazon is: "VideoSecu High Sensitive Preamp Mini Audio Pickup Tiny Spy Microphone with Power Bypass for Security Audio Sound Voice Monitoring Recording and bonus Warning Decal WD4". Currently $8.25 with free shipping for Prime members.

Matt Soltys: what is the cable for the camera??

heylawnguy: What a great video. Well done. Your helping out a lot of people with this. Thanks. I am looking to buy a zmodo system. Probably a 8 channel. Anyways I have a couple of questions I don't see in the comments. Specifically do you know what the model number of the cameras are? The picture quality looks great and is the best I've seen so far on these cheap systems, but zmodo has so many camera models that look alike. Also with the phone app can you monitor all 8 channels or just 4?

Emely Rose: finally a detailed vid...so once the hard drive is full can i .....reset it ?like erase everything and re use it????

Chris Heider: It doesn't need to record all the time. You can manually start or stop recording, record only certain times of the day, or record when movement is detected. Regardless of whether you are recording or not, the real-time images are displayed on your screen. You can display multiple at a time, or scan from one channel to another.

Alex Torres: Can you explain to me how can i connect this to multiple TVs?

Kenneth G: one tip on the mic...you could put a tiny wind screen on the tip to get rid of the wind noise.

Chris Heider: The label on the bottom of my DVR says Model #KT7208AC / SKU #DVR-H9128V. I'm sure models change all the time so I wouldn't worry about getting the exact same one. Whatever you buy, look at a picture of the back and see if it has audio input jacks on each channel.

rengarcia7: Hey Chris, have you ever thought of being a consultant or "Concierge" for COSTCO? Seems like you really know for stuff, and you make sense…!

Joaquin Ventimiglia: Hi Chris, thanks for the review. I was wondering what resolution are you using and if it reach fps mentioned on the manual.

Big Daddy Barboza: I am curious, how bad is the wind noise?
