Lorex is committed to providing top-of-the-line security products and service, but due to factors out of our control, we are preparing for potential interruptions in daily processes and possible delays in product production, distribution and shipping.

We are doing our best to add additional resources to minimize the delay, and your patience is greatly appreciated.

As our distribution centers remain open, we are taking safety precautions to protect our employees and the products that are being shipped.

Frequently Asked Questions About Lorex Security

Frequently Asked Questions About Lorex Security

Does Lorex have traditional home security systems?

No, Lorex does not have traditional home security systems in the sense of being able to purchase motion detectors, door/window sensors, smoke detectors, and smart home devices. Lorex provides camera systems that are designed for those whose main goal is video monitoring.

Are Lorex camera systems installed by professionals?

No, Lorex camera systems are designed for self-installation (DIY). Lorex claims that they their installation processes are easy to follow, and everything you need will be included with your kit. Typically, with each camera system you can expect to find 60 ft. of cable, screws and anchors, and a power adaptor and/or receiver. You may need a ladder, screwdrivers, and a power drill to help with installation.

Does Lorex have monitoring plans?

No, Lorex does not offer any monitoring plans. You’ll be responsible for monitoring your security system. Lorex makes this easy, however, through either of their mobile apps, allowing to get notifications, view live video feeds, and even set custom motion zones.

How is my camera footage stored?

Lorex provides 2 methods for storage: by digital video recorder (DVR) or network video recorder (NVR). A DVR is older technology and processes video through an encoder. Lorex DVR systems use a single BNC cable for power and video transmission. An NVR is newer and processes video at the camera. NVR systems are also powered by ethernet cable, commonly known as Power Over Ethernet (PoE).

What’s the difference between Lorex’s mobile apps?

Lorex has three mobile apps: Lorex Home, Lorex Cloud, and Lorex Cirrus. Your Lorex security system will determine the Lorex app that you can use. Each mobile app gives you access to alerts, remove viewing, and the ability to customize camera settings.
