Q-See QT5682-8E3-1 8-Channel Security Camera Systems
Q-See QT5682-8E3-1 8-Channel 960H Security Surveillance System with 8 High-Resolution 960H/700TVL Cameras and 1 TB Hard Drive
Home security once meant having expensive alarms installed by professionals in and around your home. The entire systems with installation would usually be prohibitively expensive and mainly reserved for those with high-end houses in exclusive neighborhoods. These days, you can have security camera systems in your home, giving you peace of mind while not taking too much out of your pocketbook. You can install these security cameras yourself, too, saving an arm and a leg on the whole set-up procedure.
The Q-See-QT5682-8E3-1-8-Channel home security system is one of these DIY surveillance systems for use in either the home or in a business setting. The Security Cameras Guide steers consumers towards purchasing the security cameras that best fit their individual needs, based upon price, complexity of installation and other features that each separate system has to offer.
Highlights of the Q-See-QT5682-8E3-1-8-Channel Set
The QT5682 provides up to 100 feet of nighttime vision and a pre-installed 1 TB hard drive. The remote Internet monitoring abilities allow up to ten viewers simultaneously. You can watch live streaming video from your security camera systems via your MAC or PC, iPhone, iPad or other Android devices. Email notice alerts will be sent to you when the cameras detect something in their view.
How the Q-See-QT5682-8E3-1-8-Channel System Measures Up
This set of security cameras includes 8 weatherproof cameras with high-resolution capabilities. The cameras offer 700 TVL (television lines). The higher the resolution number, the better clarity in the images you will get, and 700 is quite a high one in TVL.
The Security Cameras Guide www.securitycameras-guide.com compared the QT5682 to the SANNCE 8CH H.264 Surveillance Security System, which is just slightly less expensive than the QT but has similar features. Both systems come with 8 high-resolution weatherproof cameras, but the SANNCE has a bit higher resolution number at 800 TVL. A drawback for the SANNCE is that there is no hard-drive included but there is an internal SATA HDD port. Both offer remote monitoring for iPhone, iPad and Androids with email alerts. The SANNCE gives you only up to 85 feet in night vision.
Setting Up the Q-SEE
Installing this set of security cameras is a snap with the QR scan code, found with a free QSee app, to set up the DVR and mobile devices. There is no need to enter complicated codes, as it is all automatically done with this scan code. If you have any problems, Q-See has a live chat online that is quick to respond with knowledgeable technicians on hand.
The Q-See security package presents you with extremely clear picture quality, especially on an HDTV. With the cameras, you can choose exactly which portion of a screenshot you wish to have triggered with motion detection, which is very helpful, especially if your camera is viewing a public street where there is traffic constantly going by and triggering your motion detection way too often. You can opt to keep that portion of the view out of motion detection. You may want to just direct the motion detector toward your front steps or just in front of your doorway or window, making this a nice function of the system. Another perk of the motion detection on these cameras is that they will capture someone turning a corner and the next adjacent camera will continue with this view so you have a continuous scene of the action.
The DVR device itself has a small footprint, which is convenient for placement just about anywhere. All eight cameras can be played back at once. You can then switch over to just one camera if you like, in order to get a close-up of an image. The picture quality is very good, with life-like colors, and clear night vision.
The Q-See-QT5682-8E3-1-8-Channel security cameras are weather resistant but not actually waterproof. Rain can sometimes get inside them and cause problems. Upon arrival, the packaging of the set is somewhat poor, with not enough packing material included.
The recording time on the machine lasts for just about 48 hours with cameras set at full resolution, and then it must be reset. The system cannot be powered off without unplugging it from the electrical outlets at the back of the machine, necessitating a re-setup of the DVR.
This Q-See system is a step up from their previous model, the QT5680 and has a lot of nice perks and easy installation going for it.
