What Sets Lorex Apart

Lorex Technologies Inc provides security cameras and security camera systems. That is it. There are no monitoring services, no extra sensors, nothing but security camera systems. This kind of specialization allows them to focus on improving the equipment and its features.

They provide new customers with a 60 day return policy. Moreover, Lorex offers several warranty options; although none are what could be considered “lifetime.” These warranty options include a two-year option that is exclusive to online purchases, a standards one-year limited warranty, a two-year limited warranty, and an optional extended warranty.

Key Features

Lorex Technologies, Inc offers consumers a number of key features including:

  • Wireless or Hardwired
  • DIY Installation
  • Remote Control
  • Intrusion Protection

Pricing & Packages

A security camera package from Lorex includes a camera, Digital Video Recorder (DVR), and an all-weather receiver. The receiver connects the cameras in a security system to each other and the DVR. The DVR offers a security grade built in hard drive with one terabyte of storage.

In addition, they offer multiple camera packages that provide a savings over buying cameras individually. They come in two packs, four packs, and even more options to make sure that customers have adequate coverage for all of their property.

About Lorex

Lorex Technologies Inc is a video technology company that provides professional grade DIY video surveillance systems for both homes and businesses. They pride themselves on being 100 percent customer oriented and have won multiple awards to support that assertation.

Based in Ontario Canada, Lorex provides surveillance systems for businesses and homes in Canada, the United Kingdom, and the United States. They have been in business for more than 25 years and are currently a part of a larger company known as Flir Systems Inc.

While not a Better Business Bureau (BBB) accredited company, Lorex has garnered a B+ rating with the consumer watchdog. However, their customer rating – based on 21 customer reviews – barely tops one star out of five. In addition, there are 49 customer complaints on the BBB website. In fact, this low level of satisfaction is a common trend among other consumer review organizations like the BBB. Check out the full review of Lorex here.

Mobile Alerts

Using Lorex’s Cirrus App, customers get notifications when a camera is triggered or another event within the home is detected. Alerts can then be sent via the app to your phone and/or email.

Wireless Equipment
Wireless Equipment

Lorex offers battery operated cameras and receivers that send video to the DVR over a Wi-Fi connection so that there never has to be a single wire attached anywhere in the system. Of course, they also offer hybrids that allow for plugging into a wall outlet (handy in high traffic areas).
