What We Like

What We Don't Like

  • Installation: The installation process was left entirely to us and there was no option for professional installation through Lorex. If we didn’t want to do the installation ourselves, it was our responsibility to hire a professional installer through a third party.
  • No Professional Monitoring: This is a system that we had to monitor completely on our own using the Lorex App. There was no option for 24/7 monitoring from professionals. That wasn’t a deal-breaker for us, but it’s important to note that without 24/7 professional monitoring, we were the ones responsible for calling for help in the event of an emergency.
  • Customer Service: Customer service was open Monday through Saturday from 11:00 AM until 10:00 PM EST. That means that if we had a problem with our system outside of those working hours, we were out of luck.

Bottom Line

Lorex makes good, solid cameras. Period. With video resolutions ranging from 1080p to 4K HD, superb night vision, and on-location video storage through DVRs and NVRs, you’ll enjoy professional-grade home security equipment without the high monthly fees.
