Choosing the best security system is not easy at all. Some of them are really expensive. Can a cheap system be good? Today I will review the affordable ELEC 1500TVL 960H security system.
First of all, it is important to mention that this system comes in different version. The one I am reviewing is 8CH 4CAM (Amazon link). This version comes with 4 cameras. The video quality is really good. The camera is weatherproof as well (not waterproof !) so you can place it outside if needed. The built in IR leds will improve the video quality at night.
Another great camera security system is ZOSI 8-Channel (Amazon link). It privdes great video quality and is very easy to setup. Is it better than ELEC 1500TVL ? I would say they are both pretty much the same – video quality wise. Check them both and decide which one fits your needs better.
Mobile Live View
You can remotely view the life stream from your PC or smartphones, There are many apps that allow you to do that. Most of them are completely free, but some offer paid premium options. The setup of the ELEC 1500TVL system is pretty easy if you already know how these kind of ststems work. If you don’t, I highly recommend watching YouTube videos on this topic. They are very useful. Here is a good video I found that explains everything clearly.
In The Box
You will find the system console, 4 cameras, DVR power supply, 1 power supply for cameras, 60 feet power + video cable, 1-4 splutter, set of screws, usb mouse, Ir remote and a quick guide. Keep in mind that the hardware is not included, so you will have to buy one. The system supports 3.5″ hard drives. You can find many of them online – they are pretty cheap. Since the system uses 4 cameras, it is important to install a hard drive with enough storage space.
Value For Money
If your budget is very limited and you need a good security system that works well and provides good video quality – defiantly consider buying the ELEC 1500TVL system. You won’t be disappointed. Many people don’t believe that a camera security system this cheap can be any good. Well, in the past – it was true. But nowadays, many small manufactures offer great systems for very affordable prices.
