WARNING - for those new to the topic of security cameras - do not trust zmodo / funlux products, they have been the most deceitful in advertisements and astroturfing of all products I have seen this last year when putting together the Black Friday security camera thread.


Example for this product:

Questions from Amazon page:

Question: Are these 1080p or 720p? Title says 1080p. Description says 720p.

Answer(s): very misleading - moving on to next product just for this reason. says 1080 in title and its only 720... BS!
By John Dole on April 13, 2017

The resolution of cameras is 720p. The NVR is 1080p NVR, it can work with 1080p cameras.
By MeShare SELLER on March 13, 2017 [ Don't trust this user - has also been here on SD's astroturfing.. iirc the NVR specs shows it can not handle more than a full compliment of 720p cameras ]

Why put 1080P in the title if it is only 720?
By Adrian on July 4, 2017

totally confused, I thought this was 1080p, so the cameras are 720p, now i'm ok with that as long as i can buy 2 addon cameras at 1080p, otherwise i return the entire item? I can't find 1080p addons anywhere

Moving along myself, can't trust this brand now.

The NVR is capable of 1080p resolution for playback. The cameras however, are 720p. Both are considered to be high definition and should give great quality video.

Also note - the kit does not include a WiFi router, and the cameras will need to use your WiFi router

UPDATE:
Checked fakespot - got a fairly high % of deception for a product with so many reviews.
With about 20% fake reviews, this product should not have gotten 4 stars ( each star = 20% )

Fakespot's trustwerty rating indicates the actual star value should be: 2.7 / 5
