Everything that came with the system worked but that�s when I found that the 2 dome cameras did not work with this NVR, Amazon site said that these Lorex cameras would work with 4K NVRs but they didn�t so don�t make this mistake like I did go to Lorex site they have a compatibility page for each NVR, so I sent those back and ordered the compatible dome cameras for this NVR, so that was my first snag, had to wait for my other cameras so it took me a total of 3 weeks from the day I received the system and got everything working the way I wanted, my house is brick and wires were very hard to run and conceal, I found the easiest way to run the cat5 was to combine all 8 together to make a cable out of all of them using electrical tape about every foot for the first 50 feet and then tapped every 3 foot for the rest made easier to run from the cabinet to the attic without tangling any of the cat5 and once in the attic I removed the tape to run wire to each camera, sounds simple enough but its time consuming but well worth the extra effort for a nice clean job, my second snag once everything was installed was during my setup I found the display setting and it was set to 1080p and I thought wow how much clearer could this get because it�s super clear now set it to 4K and oops no picture and had no way to set it back, my tv is not 4K so I called support and I can�t remember her name but she helped me set up flir cloud client on my laptop to get in the system and set it back to 1080p and only took about 15 minutes so there support I must say is top notch and she was very polite.

If you are going to place the NVR in a closet or seldom used room, then I would definitely recommend this system, but if you are planning on having it in any room where you would normally spend any considerable amount of time, in my case my security system is in my living room, I would not recommend this system as the noise coming from the fans of the NVR are overwhelming and overshadow every other sounds such as the tv or radio or stereo. The system is pretty easy to set up, and works well so far. The Rapid Recap is pretty cool, but I don't get a lot of activity to make it worth it.

I'm not an electrician, and the only other option was to purchase an 8 in 1 plug through Lorex but as I explained to the tech person I didn't feel this would fix my problem either since it still on sent 12v down the line. Keep in mind to keep track of each camera and the channel you plug it into because once plugged into that cameras programmed for that channel so number your cat5s and cameras but if you mess a couple of cameras up with the wrong channel that camera and channel can be reset it just takes time to figure out how the NVR interface works.
