WARNING - Zmodo and Funlux are fraudulent in their representation of IP PoE security camera systems.

Their products are not meeting any PoE standards, they have poor quality wires, and are not compatible with any IP based systems.

Due to this I highly recommend you avoid their brand and products. They can not be trusted.

You can still find some good quality PoE systems at good deals:

From another "zmodo / funlux deal" comment:
Quote from mat2000
The following IP PoE kit is 1000x better, and only a little more once you add a SATA HDD you may have laying about:

Current Cyber Week price $219.99
You maybe able to get 10% off by signing up for Amcrest's email.

Note: Regarding Zmodo / Funlux - Whenever you see in the longer documentation that the kit is "simplified PoE" thats a big hint that they're lying to you some place. Also the 1080p terms can be very misleading, example "1080p NVR" input is 720p - meaning it can only handle 720p cameras .... oh, and look it can DISPLAY 1080p... but not accept a 1080p camera.

Yes, this is the kind of fraud I have constantly been seeing from Zmodo / Funlux as well as other bottom brands.

Thanks OP. I got one because I woked up and my zmodo system of 5 years dvr was dead.. without hope of bringing it back up. 3 year warranty and made an offer of 75 minus 10% equals $65 to keep my current system running and 4 new cameras to boot. When i move to the next house will consider getting amcrest or another brand but for now to keep things going this will work.

The closer I inspect the zmodo / funlux ads the more I notice areas which they are clearly being deceptive.

Zmodo and Funlux clearly are selling non-standard junk - if they were selling a car it would be far worse than a Yugo - as that car actually complied to highway standards.

How does this deal compare to a zmodo / annke / sannce / funlux "POE" system?:
All of those brands seem to like to deceive customers into thinking they are selling an affordable PoE security camera system, when in fact the system is NOT PoE and does not meet any PoE standards and is not compatible with IP cameras. Those are proprietary systems which once you read more about you will find they are back pedaling and then calling them "sPOE" - what they call simplified POE. They are clearly being fraudulent, thus I recommend avoiding them and getting something which meets PoE standards and allows you to plug in ONVIF spec cameras to the system.
Examples of fraudulent misrepresentation and/or deceptive practices:
  • Claiming NVR and cameras are POE, when it is not - look for terms like sPoE and simplified PoE.
  • Claiming system is 1080p, when the NVR is capable of displaying to a 1080p monitor/TV but only able to handle 720p cameras.
  • Claiming system is 1080p, upon closer look you notice "1080p lite" - which does not meet 1080p standards. Typically look for less fps. ( frames per second )
  • Inferring that the system is 1080p by using the term 1080N, noting that 1080N = 960×1080=1036800 pixels vs. 720p = 1280x720 = 921600 vs 1080p = 1920x1080 = 2073600
  • Claiming cameras are IP cameras, but you will notice that the cameras only work with their branded "NVR", and may in fact be analog cameras for all we know.
  • Claiming system is digital, using banking level security, and secure vs an analog system which is not secure. Absolute BS, from companies which will not hire enough talented software engineers.
