To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I tried buying this and adding a sd card. im pretty good with tech and this was a nightmare. I added one on my lorex dvr system and it works great. I wouldnt get this camera to stand alone with a sd card or cloud service.
The quality of the camera is good however the software is just too buggy. There's alot of issues setting up FTP with a server. You literaly have to disable your firewall in some cases. It's such a shame because the hardware is all pretty good. It's just that the software is garbage. I'm switching back to reolink. But I would consider giving Amcrest another try if they revise their software.
Bought the cameras through amcrest directly because of a discount, the cameras have crystal clear display on a live feed but being that the cameras are 4k there's a playback issue because of the high resolution. The NVR is poorly made.
Could not connect to cloud even after paying for the services. Technical support couldn't have been more useless. spent hours tying to get to cloud recording and then in the end opted for POE camera from another company
