The Night Owl Zeus Video Security Kit comes with a 16-channel DVR, 8 indoor/outdoor night vision cameras, and the required power supplies and connecting cables.


The DVR allows you to instantly view videos from miles away using an internet-enabled PC, turning your computer into a surveillance hub. You can also view captured footage while on-the-go using select 3G/4G iPhone, Android, and Blackberry models. The triplex function allows you to view and playback videos even as the DVR continues to record, keeping the surveillance area fully secure. All videos are recorded in H.264 format at D1 resolution and come with a time and date stamp for official use. The provided 1 TB hard drive offers ample space for reliable recording of the surveillance area.

In case of any movement in the vicinity under surveillance, the motion detection sensor triggers an alarm and instantly sends out an email notification to your inbox. You can also keep a track of high-risk areas during peak hours by switching to the DVR's time-scheduled recording mode. This will allow you to record for a specific period instead of continuously recording unwanted footage, thus saving space on your hard drive. Once the DVR's maximum storage capacity is reached, you can opt to overwrite the oldest files with recent ones.

Critical surveillance footage can be transferred on a flash drive or USB hard disk for later use. For enhanced security, the DVR has a password protection feature that prevents unauthorized users from operating the system or viewing crucial data.

With a ¼" image sensor, each night vision camera delivers clear images at a resolution up to 400 TVL. Eleven LEDs help the camera capture footage at a distance up to 30' (9 m), making it suitable for round-the clock surveillance.

        Comments about Night Owl Zeus Video Security Kit:

        I purchased a 16 camera unit from NightOwl two years ago. Within 10 months the fans on the DVR started to fail and make a very high pitched whining sound. NightOwl fixed them under warranty and exactly 10 months later they failed again and they will not honor the warranty a second time even though the same exact part failed.

        NightOwl products do not hold up to constant use despite the fact that a video surveillance system is on 24x7.

        Comments about Night Owl Zeus Video Security Kit:

        Used for a business.
        Easy to install, cheap. Works well is small spaces. Anything over 30ft away is pixelated. Motion detection is handy but the night vision is worthless.
        Software is clunky, quality is inconsistent, video quality is mediocre at best. VGA cables are frustrating to work with.
        Is a nice starter set-up, but we are ready to move on to some real cameras.
