New systems, like the ones from Lorex, are cheap and easy to install, making them available to everyone on any budget and for any reason. Lorex is having their “14 Days of Holiday Gifts” sale on security cameras right now. If you have any family members who still haven’t upgraded to a modern security system, these Lorex security camera deals are your chance to help them out. While getting a new Lorex security system is ultimately a gift to them, it’s also peace of mind for you, knowing they’ll be protected. The sale lasts until December 19, so don’t wait too long, especially if you want time to get it shipped, wrapped, and stuck under the tree before the holidays start.

The Lorex Smart Home Security Center is a great product for people wanting maximum security for a minimum amount of hassle. The main benefit of this setup is that it comes with its own screen, so you don’t need to buy any more dedicated devices, or even worry about pairing it with a laptop. Control of the WiFi cameras is all right at your fingertips with the touchscreen display. It also works with voice commands, so you can do things like toggle through your cameras while you’re doing the dishes. This pack comes with two cameras, but if you end up wanting to expand your surveillance system to more cameras, or include a few different kinds of cameras, you can easily add more and view them through the Smart Home Security Center. It’s compatible with Lorex floodlights, doorbells, indoor and outdoor cameras, and motion sensors.

The cameras that come in this deal are 1080 outdoor cameras with 2MP image sensors. They can be set to motion activation, and include a light on them to let potential snoops know they’re being recorded. But they won’t go off every time a bug flies by. They have smart detection that can be set up to only trigger when humans or vehicles are in view. They also have a two-way talk system, so you can communicate with whoever is on the other end of the camera right from the Security Center screen. The cameras pair with the Lorex Home App for remote viewing options, perfect for when you’re out and about and want to check in.

The Lorex 4K Wired DVR System is great if you want to buy one product and be set for life. It’s a DVR system, meaning it records and stores all of your footage on its own hard drives. Other systems require cloud storage, which costs a monthly fee. You can view the stored footage from any device that can access the Lorex Home app, such as a smartphone or a laptop. The cameras are wired, which requires a bit more setup but guarantees that they won’t ever lose signal or run out of battery.

The cameras themselves record in gorgeous 4K — no more squinting at grainy footage. They even look great at night with Lorex’s Color Night Vision technology. You can see up to 135 feet in low light, and up to 90 feet in complete darkness using the infrared night vision. The cameras can be set to motion activation, and if they do sense anything, they shine an LED light to let potential intruders know they’re on camera. If you want the people on camera to leave, you can remotely activate lights and a siren.
