Did this video help you?

Chris Heider: I appreciate the feedback, guys. Glad you found this helpful.

jfs1988: I have the Zmodo ZMD-DX-SAN8. Its an 8 channel 960H DVR (H.264 Digital Video Recorder). I hate that the website isn't very clear on which internal hard drives are compatible. Can I use a laptop or desktop computer hard drive or does it have to be surveillance only? I just want video & have it set up only at night. Could a Toshiba 500GB Internal Serial ATA 2.6 laptop hard drive work? Its $54.99 at Best Buy.

Nick Mossey: Should I use a vga splitter??? Did u do this on ur tv's??

Luwanna Mathis: Chris.. Please help me.. I have the ZMD-DX-SBN8.. My password won't work.. I have done the re-setting.. I have also taken out the battery and re-boot... but the factory setting of "111111" doesn't even work with doing all that.. Any suggestions? Oh.. I am having the same problem as you with the house break-ins... I really do need this working

Trevor Allen: great video , I am watching videos on how to install wireless cameras so when my wife and me get house I know how to hook it all up lol . you did yours professional love it . 

Victorville Trucking: nice vedio , however i looking for help . my house is brocken in too . And when i am downloading selected time , after download is comlpite the file in my computer no where to be found or played. i tryed all kindes of site can not fined any help. i downloaded DVX and stil do not work.

subhash patel: hi i got router HG630B and i got DVR please tall me how can i do port forwading please help me

Nick Mossey: Is there away to put the cameras on all Tv's or computers in the house??

burtonkidd: Looking into getting this kit, would you need to re-install the hardware back onto the new HDD ?

jimmicreesti: Maybe stick some tough channelling over those unhidden wires - it only takes a dart over with some snippers in a balaclava and...

Mr. Ben: Thank you for posting, this answered a LOT of questions.

Egoreman: really cool vid just installed a funlux H.264 digital camera system your right about the wiring but found the cameras we easy to mount and set.going to do the same upgrades as you did with the internet viewing on different computers....but anyway gr8 job

Karim Amrani: Thx for this very good review and installation guide!

MrWorldbefree: I wish this guy was my neighbor to help me install my system. I'd pay him.

Ricardo Peres: Hi, how did you configured the wireless camera on your DVR? Thank you

Native722: You're the most challenging part is the wiring/installation. Did you had to drill a hole into the walls to mount the camera? I'm afraid to do it to mines because it get damaged. 

fred gruenebaum: Great video. My question is...I have the very same DVR. In the Record Mode, what settings are you using for 1. Resolution (assume the same setup) 2. Quality 3. Frame Rate 3. Rec Mode and 4. File Length. I haven't been able to find these settings anywhere. I have DVR-H.264 H9124V. Want to do exactly what you've done but am stymied over these settings. Thanks in advance, Fred

Gary Dsouza: hi was it recording when it detected motion, then sent a picture...

JStorer.93: Just wanted to know.. If I'm running the system though out the attic will I need to run a power supply up there too? Or does the power run from DRV up though the bnc cables 

Dr James A McBean: Thanks for sharing! How much does the whole system cause and where can one get them?

Daniel Medina: Excellent! Thank you for sharing.

venom5809: Hi Chris, just got a system today and wanted some advice. I want to attach my cameras to the underside of my eaves, is this feasible? Also does the DVR have to be in the same room as my router and does it have to be directly connected to it? Thanks. 

Minh Tran: "NO SMOKE" Make me laugh so hard! lol.

hhova29: This is an excellent video. Been looking into a simple system to buy on eBay. Any tips or brands you rec? 

Daniel Tojcic: Thanks for the video! I was most confused about how to run the wiring thru the concrete and into the house, wish there were more detailed videos online showing different ways to do this 

stonewickison: "There's a lot of things that cause motion" You are correct. Do you know about setting video masking? In your DVR settings look for it. It allows you to "paint" areas on the screen for each camera that are essentially ignored by the motion detection. Therefore reducing false motion recordings. For example you could paint a small mask area on the screen, where a hanging pot plant that constantly moves in the wind is situated so that it does not always set of the recording.

Paul Lumannev: I bought a seperate microphone with a seperate power supply, should this not work on my system - although mine is a Sannce.

Chakyra Spears: Hello I have a zmodo system similar to this. Can you connect your dvr to a wifi system for cell phone usage or do you need an actual internet router? 

mrtrek64: It seems you need a large hole to be able to get these wires into the house. It would seem drill an average sized hole, say for a cable wire, isn't going to be sufficient to get those video wires through. If I see this correctly, there are like three connectors that have to go through, which would require a very large hole. Am I correct? I have my system sitting here waiting to be installed, and this is the issue I foresee. Thanks for the video

Malla Reddy Choodi: Nice Video.. bought one from Newegg.. and as per your instruction ordered the microphone and other cable.. what is the Max hard drive will it support.

Bull Brougham: Nice video and install- I'm thinking of doing mine all wireless. What has been your experience with using a wireless camera? Thanks

Ilian Nachev: Hi Chris, This is a great informative video! I just bought and installed one of those myself, but I am confused as to what to do with the compact disk that came with it. Is it there just for storage of old video that you extract from the memory or it has some other function? Also, how do I delete the video from the system when it fills up all the memory? Is that in the menu when I plug the monitor to the system? Thanks a lot!

Francis G: Chris, incorrect hard drive. Sure overall it doesn't matter but certain hard drives are designed differently for a specific application! You should have used the WD Purple. To see the WD color chart you can see it here: http://www.wdc.com/en/products/internal/desktop/

ShortFlame: 4:20 That's what she said. LOL

Alan Guscott: Very helpful Chris, thanks. Just about to install my system just as soon as the hard drive arrives.

mnmnk00: Nice video. Thanks for that.

G Siga: I recommend running your cables through galvanized pipe where they are exposed before heading inside, in this case through the wall into the basement. I prefer it be not so easy for a crook to cut the lines. I realize the crook has access to the cameras if they really want to break the system. But it takes a lot more effort to damage each camera vs. just cutting one group of wires. Best wishes for safe future.

msit888: I wish you had covered the power aspects of hooking up all of the cameras but otherwise exceptionally done video ! Thank you.

Tandy G: Really nicely made and explained video. Thanks a lot....

Luis Colon: Thank you very helpfull

TheKevarr1: to Emmanuel Goldstein, we all know its cheap, but it does the job. You're like the followers of fad, and the only thing that's good has to be expensive. A $200 revolver will kill just as quick as a $600 Glock and the revolver is more reliable. You on the other hand will say the revolver is cheap and Glock is the way to go jump on the hate band wagon just because others think differently to you. I think this is a good video and it helped me make my decision on purchasing this security system. 

BenzieDog: Hello, thanks for the video. We were thinking about setting up one of these systems in our vacation home. Is there a way to do that and be able to check and reset your DVR from 120 miles away? Or would we have to drive there to check videos? Sorry for the dumb question. New to this :)

jose Moreno: Thanks Chris do you recommend this brand or does brand matter? is it been working good an cameras during rain weather conditions? thanks 

Ilian Nachev: Thanks for that info, Chris!

paul moult: Hi great explaination can you help im been trying to connect my dvr to my samsung tv with an hdmi cable and i get mode not suppoeted ive tryed a vga too just cant get a picture up all seems to be connected right any ideas thanks 

Daniel Phung: Thanks for the video!!! But can you show me how to set up the power wires ???in your video, the cable go into the back of the DVR but where did the power line go? 

Lisa Cook: Ok, so i bought everything you recommended, the only difference is the dvr is a newer zmodo. Im having a difficult time setting up the mini mic, i put all the wires together as you showed in the video. However, it would have helped if you showed the connections on the back of your dvr where the other plugs go. I have the bnc video connected to the dvr but, where does the red audio cord go in at? I have 4 audio inputs 1 is yellow, audio input 2 is blue, audio input 3 is white and audio input 4 is red. I also have 2 bnc audio outputs. I have more than one camera im putting up and want sound to all of them, how would i do this?

My G1W Clips: Is there a power button on this? I have a newer version, ZMD-DT-SCN8. When I was setting it up and tried to shut it down it gets stuck on a screen that says Save Data Successful, turn power off....only problem is I don't see a power button anywhere on the console.

weyutome: Thanks. You have provided one of only a few YouTube videos that gets into how you actually INSTALL (route the wires into/out of the house; drill holes, etc.) the system in a typical house. That is the hard part; hookup is simply plug ‘n play.

Luis Alvarado: my dvr h.264 has no audio, i was told to purchase the cable with the small mic, still no audio. help
