Finished installing my Zmodo 1080p PoE Security Camera System and I am already pleased with my purchasing decision.UNBOXINGThe system is fairly simple and straight-forward to set up. The print instructions provided are very basic, but good enough to have even a technology novice get everything running. The instructions suggest plugging everything in (cameras to the 'repeater' which really seems to be a network hub), and the repeater to the NVR unit to make sure all of the system components are working before running cable and mounting the cameras. I did as recommended and was pleased to see how 'plug-and-play' the system was. The NVR auto-detected all of the cameras and they were producing great video.INSTALLINGAfter taking some time to identify where to mount my cameras to get the best views of the exterior of my house and how I was going route the cables, I began with the time consuming task of mounting and routing. This was kind of a pain, but that has nothing to do with the system. I'm just someone who craves leisure and climbing on a ladder (and at one point on my roof) to mount everything just right is not something I enjoy doing over the weekend! I have only installed 6 of the cameras so far, but plan on doing the other two next week when I can find some more time to climb the ladder all over againNVR and VIDEOI am impressed with the video quality. Watching the cameras live from the NVR is great. I currently have it connected to one of the HDMI inputs on my TV, but will look to buying a separate monitor to dedicate to the system. Once the NVR first booted up, it prompted me to set my system password. Its nice to see the system prompt the user to set their password so that no default passwords are used.I wish there were better instructions for operating the on-screen menu options. No instructions came with system for operating the NVR software. I did come across some instructions on the Zmodo website, but I ended up just playing around with the different NVR features and it wasn't too hard to figure out.SMARTPHONE APPI installed the app, created the account and synced my system but wasn't paying attention too much to how I did it. I've only played with it a little bit, so I don't have much to say about it yet.Overall, I am very happy with the system so far. As I continue to use it over the next few months, I plan on coming back here to provide an update to my review.
