    ECO4 Series LH1581001 8-Channel Stratus

          Comments about Lorex ECO4 Series LH1581001 8-Channel Security DVR (1TB):

          Let me introduce briefly myself: I'm am expert and experienced in this field since twenty years ago but nothing related with commercial purpose. I purchased this item to replace another device 8 channels D1@30f 16 TB capable. I was and I'm still excited regarding Stratus connectivity feature and, so far, I can say that is an amazing feature with a bright future; in fact works fine with a computer and the same thing for the mobile application, in my case Iphone 5. Negative limit: the dedicated application for Ipad is the same of the Iphone,no dedicated appl. actually available.
          I tested an other point,cameras: Unless you use the 960X480 specific cameras, you could have a huge problem with cameras leading tv lines more then 480. In fact if you have to use this device in a scenario where you have installed your cameras already, for example cameras with 550 tvlines,you should have on your monitor a slow horizontal fluctuation (unstable picture). This is a huge issue because there are a lot of similar situations considering that 960H cameras are recent innovation in the video security panorama.
          I did not test yet other features like alarm relay and PTZ.
          Last note: Lorex suggest to reboot this device once a week at least, in fact there is a tag in the software to do that automatically. They say that this procedure will make "the system more stable"!? What they mean, maybe their software is not reliable?
