Some reviewers experienced that wireless connectivity range, does not match up to 450 feet as claimed by the manufacturer. It can manage a range of about 100 - 300 feet without any interference. A few reviewers also mentioned that the intercom or the two way audio feature fades or lags many times. Another problem mentioned by the reviewers is, it does not come with an option to zoom one camera at a time. The zoom option is applicable to ‘all or none’ which is a disappointment. Some minor problems that are applicable to all home security systems like image clarity, lesser range or wider angle are also seen in this system.
Overall, Defender's PX 301 System is ideal for monitoring entrances, backyards, valuables and employees, in any situation needed. This is a recommended system with perfect pricing for its perfect quality features backed with life time customer support facility.
